While the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide go to war over the National Championship tonight, True Believers were given a special sneak peek at another battle taking place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But rather than competing for a prestigious athletic title and bragging rights, this fight is over the mysterious African nation known as Wakanda.
Following a special halftime performance from Kendrick Lamar, ESPN debuted the latest trailer for Ryan Coogler’s highly anticipated ‘Black Panther’. The action-packed promo not only shows off more of T’Challa’s impressive abilities and a slightly extended look at the Wakandan people, but it also features more destruction caused by Erik Killmonger and Ulysses Klaue. You can check out the new preview below followed by the synopsis of the film:
Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father,
the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African
nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful
old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he
is drawn into a formidable 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
and their way of life.
In addition to delivering a plethora of new footage, this extended TV spot was also meant to announce that tickets are now on sale for the film via Fandango. With the movie premiering in just over a month, those of us that are eager to see Chadwick Boseman’s warrior king in action once again can purchase seats for screenings starting on February 15th at 7:00pm EST. Plus, Fandango VIPs will receive an exclusive poster while supplies last.
