Forest Whitaker: Expecting Something Great From ‘Black Panther’ Movie

Forest Whitaker
Black Panther hits theaters next month, and if ticket pre-sales are any indication… The film could break records at the Box office.
We are expecting great things from Black Panther, and one of the film stars, Forest Whitaker, is too.
 In an interview with Variety during the Sundance film festival, Whitaker shared his thoughts on moviegoers excitement around the Superhero film.

“The first time we saw it, just as a cast, after it, everybody leapt up to their feet — literally some were in tears, they were so excited about what was actually occurring. I think people have that same excitement around the movie. I’m expecting something great, and something great for Ryan.”

“This superhero from Africa who is in this society and trying to fix the world is something that hasn’t been seen before,” Whitaker added. “I think Ryan [Coogler] is a great director so there’s always going to be some social conscious inside of it. … And at the same time, the action is something we haven’t seen before.”
