With a little less than one month until its release, Marvel’s Black Panther has officially been rated by the Motion Picture Association of America as PG-13.
Black Panther follows T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) as the King of Wakanda returns home to face a threat from within that could have global ramifications. The Marvel Studios film received its PG-13 rating for “prolonged sequences of action violence, and a brief rude gesture”.
Ryan Coogler (Creed) is directing the film, which features Boseman who reprises his role as T’Challa in his character’s first standalone film after his introduction in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. The actor is also set to reprise his role in this year’s culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Infinity War.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kan.
Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T’Challa’s mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2018.
