On Sept. 4, fans of the Georgia-filmed blockbuster — and the few who still haven’t caught the highly-anticipated epic — will have the chance to revel in all of Wakanda’s glory.
The movie, which stars Chadwick Boseman and is directed by Ryan Coogler, crossed its $1 billion mark on its 26th day of release, making it the fifth Marvel Cinematic Universe hit to achieve the milestone, joining “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
“Black Panther,” which hit theaters in February, was mostly filmed in Atlanta. The state accounted for nearly $84 million of the movie’s $200 million budget.
