'Black Panther' Sets May Blu-Ray Release Date
Black Panther will soon be moving its kingdom from the big screen to Blu-ray.
The blockbuster film will be available on digital, Movies Anywhere and 4K UHD on May 8, and will hit Blu-ray on May 15, Marvel Studios announced Monday. That's hot on the heels of Avengers: Infinity War, which hits theaters April 27 and features Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke and Angela Bassett.
Black Panther has broken numerous box-office records since opening Feb. 16, including surpassing Marvel's The Avengers to become the top-grossing superhero movie ever at the U.S. box office. Over the weekend, it became the No. 3 movie of all time domestically, passing Titanic with $665.6 million to date. Black Panther has grossed more than $1.3 billion globally and is currently the No. 10 top-grossing title of all time.
Ryan Coogler directed the film, which stars Boseman as the king of Wakanda and hero known as Black Panther. Marvel has put together a home entertainment trailer for the upcoming release.
