Continuing its momentum of unity and togetherness for Black History Month, the University of North Texas Dallas student body made its way to the box office recently to see the thrilling and much anticipated film, “Black Panther”.

“I’ve been wanting to see this movie for a while,” said senior Jillian Hannie. “I heard it’s a really good movie and it has really good reviews. I’m excited that the school created this idea for us to come watch it and enjoy ourselves.”

Directed by Ryan Coogler, who else directed the movie “Creed”, “Black Panther” casts heavy hitters such as Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett.

The storyline is about a young prince (Boseman) returning home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. He gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

In just its second week, the film recently surpassed $100 million in U.S. theaters, becoming only the fourth movie in history to do so.

“Being a film that displays black excellence with an all-black cast, it is very important for our students and the world to see a film that shows a different type of range and also the first black superhero for Marvel Comics,” said senior Christopher Marshall. “This is such a great experience for everyone to come together and just enjoy a great movie.”
