Black Panther is smashing box office records and giving moviegoers across the world all of the feels.
Social media is abuzz with pictures of moviegoers clad in colorful African pieces, including flowing fabric, hand-crafted jewelry and traditional dashikis and head ties. But the best part has been the one-liners rattled off in hilarious fashion throughout the movie.
Did we mention the movie was mostly filmed in Atlanta?
As if you needed another reason not to miss the history-making blockbuster, here are five of the best lines from the latest Marvel movie:
(ALERT: There WILL be spoilers.)
1. “If you say one more word, I will feed you to my children. ... Just kidding. We are vegetarians.”
Winston Duke stole the show as M’Baku, leader of the Jabari tribe. M’Baku was approached after T’Challa was believed killed after being thrown over a waterfall. M’Baku took exception to CIA Agent Everett Ross speaking.
2. “Guns. So primitive.”
How timely was this line from Okoye, a general in the Dora Milaje, an army of bad (and bald) women warriors, in light of yet another school shooting.
3. “Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage.”
Erik Killmonger’s final line sent shockwaves through many an audience. A #Message indeed.
4. “Don’t scare me like that, colonizer!”
Shuri, King T’Challa’s sister, was working in her lab when Agent Ross, finally awake after suffering a gunshot wound that should have killed him, caught her off guard with questions.
5. “Hey Auntie.”
Another hit from Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, after he is announced as son of King T’Chaka’s brother, N’Jobu. This one was all about delivery.
