Variety reports Black Panther is selling more advance IMAX tickets than any previous Marvel film, according to Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster.
Black Panther will finally hit theaters in just a few days and it is on course to have the biggest opening weekend of any Marvel Studios solo film. With IMAX presales for the film besting all other Marvel movies, Foster made the following statement on the success of the advance ticket figures:
“We have a movie that has clearly captured the zeitgeist. Pre-sales are the surest way to see how momentum is going: The momentum is gathering steam as opposed to slowing down.”
Although Foster declined to provide exact figures, he did state that IMAX presales do not appear to have peaked for the time being:
“A movie often peaks 10 days before it opens. This movie feels like it’s going to peak the day it opens. It’s remarkable.”
According to Foster, excitement for the film is spreading all across the United States:
“There are no borders on this. The momentum is continuing on both coasts and in the middle; in red states and in blue states. In giant cities and smaller suburbs.”
