Black Panther going from 28 to 154 cinemas this weekend.

Disney's lame push to get this to $700MM doesn't seem like a priority as its in 15 theaters this weekend

Re-watched this on Netflix the other night.  What a great movie. In the top five Marvel movies, for me.  
One thing I noticed was the lack of over-the-top humor that's prevalent in many of the Marvel Studios movies; just enough humor to complement the drama (GotG vol 1 notwithstanding). 
Upon second viewing I can see how it was so popular and made so much money.

Can Barrier-Breaking ‘Black Panther’ Become The First Superhero Movie Nominated For Best Picture?

https://deadline.com/2018/11/black-panther-ryan-coogler-michael-b-jordan-lupita-nyongo-interview-news-1202499543/

NOPE

They literally created another category to avoid nominating this for best picture.

Although I would say it probably should be.  If the ending was stronger and didn't end in typical Marvel movie fashion, the case would be better.  It might not even with most popular, possibly losing to Crazy Rich Asians (who even knows what the criteria is?  what a freaking joke of a category!)

To what are you referring?

The Academy has scrapped the proposed new "Achievement in Popular Film" category and it's a fairly weak year for Best Picture nominees. I think Black Panther could still get a Best Picture nomination (although it won't win).

oops you're right! in which case, I humbly change my tune. Definitely a chance for BP.  GOOD.

What is the definition of the "Best Picture" award?

Like, the Hart Trophy is presented to the player deemed most valuable to his team (by the Writer's Association). Is "Best Picture" for 'Best Film'? I thought it was for something like 'Best Visual Story'? Idk.

Black Panther is a great movie, but it's not the best of 2018. Visually, story, or otherwise. Obviously IMO.

I would not call it a great movie. A solid Marvel movie, okay, but it did not live up to the hype when I finally saw it. Now if you want to call it the most socially important Marvel film to date, definitely.

Take out the social context, which was Disneyfied and toned down anyway, and it was an okay hero movie. It was a middling Marvel movie, on par with stuff like Captain Marvel 1, Thor 1 or Thor Dark World from an enjoyment and watchability perspective IMHO. Maybe my expectations were too high? I still don't care for the actor that plays T'Challa (too wooden/stiff), and found Killmonger to be one dimensional with a so-so acting job as well. The female leads were far more interesting, but maybe that was the angle Disney was looking for?

Captain Marvel hasn't been released yet...

It's a great movie. It suffers from typical hero tropes like the ol' fake death routine, villain has the same power/suit, etc. It's still well-directed, acted, and culturally accurate. It's earns its stripes.
