The star studded Black Panther premier hosted Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Guria, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Letitia Wright, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Sterling K. Brown and Andy Serkis, who descended upon Tinsel Town for the red carpet event.
South Africa’s John Kani, Atandwa Kani and Connie Chiume joined the rest of the star-studded cast on the red carpet donning traditional inspired attire.
Marvel's Black Panther is a highly anticipated movie that follows T'Challa (Boseman), who returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king after the death of his father. Inevitably, he is drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of his people and the world in jeopardy. T'Challa must face Erik "Killmonger" Stevens (Jordan), a Wakandan exile turned American black-ops soldier, who is hell-bent on overthrowing T'Challa's reign.
In a red carpet interview Kani explained how Black Panther represents Africans in a different light.
“I knew we would introduce a different African. The African that is a global figure, the African that cares and contributes to world peace."
Black Panther will make its debut in cinemas om the 16th of February.
