Views: The ‘Black Panther’ Premiere Looked All Sorts Of Black Excellent

The early (and extremely positive) reviews for Marvel’s upcoming film Black Panther are flooding in, after the Ryan Coogler-directed film’s world premiere in L.A. last night (Jan. 29). The premiere was attended by the film’s leading men and women, as well as Donald Glover, Issa Rae, Sterling K. Brown and Yara Shahidi, who appeared in regalia fit for Wakandan royalty.

While many people did not get the “in” to attend the event, a few lucky people did, and had no problem documenting the experience for the eager fans back home. Judging by pictures and videos, it looked hella black, not that we would expect anything less, though.
