With a booming soundtrack and star-studded cast, Black Panther is shaping up to be one of Marvel Studio's biggest solo entries to date. The film's biggest strength, however, could very easily end up being its stunning visuals. As seen in the movie's trailers, the filmmakers went all out in bringing T'Challa's story to life in breathtaking fashion, and viewers who see the film in IMAX will get to immerse themselves even deeper in the visceral spectacle that is Wakanda.
According to Superhero Hype, select scenes in Black Panther were specifically designed for IMAX screens, with an expanded 1.9:11 ratio allotting 26% more capture than on standard projections. A screen grab below shows off the difference, illuminating just how much more of the superhero epic IMAX viewers will be able to spectate.
Tickets for Black Panther are now for sale online through both Fandango and Atom Tickets, and the limited seats for its IMAX showings are expected to sell out fast.
Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W’Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Forest Whitaker as Zuri. The Marvel Studio production arrives in theaters Feb. 16.
