DAHIL sa success sa global box-office ng Marvel film na Black Panther, isa ito sa ni-recognize ng The Smithsonian Institution dahil sa cultural importance at ilan sa mga items ng naturang pelikula ay na-acquire para mailagay on permanent display sa National Museum of African American History and Culture sa taong ito.
Kumita ng higit na $1.3 billion sa global box-office ang Black Panther at $700 million sa domestic US box-office.
Sa isang official press release, nilabas ng the Smithsonian Institution ang kanilang nabili at idi-display para sa Smithsonian African American Film Festival in October 2018.
The items include: a costume actually worn by Chadwick Boseman during the production; a shooting script signed by Ryan Coogler, Kevin Feige, Nate Moore, and Joe Robert Cole; two pages of spec script and 24 high-resolution production photographs.
Bukod sa mga items ng Black Panther, na-purchase din ng Smithsonian ang directors’ chairs from Avengers: Infinity War and a Captain America shield from Captain America: Civil War. Magiging permanent presence ang mga ito sa Smithsonian.
“Black Panther is worth special recognition because he was the first superhero of African descent to appear in mainstream American comics.
“Black Panther illustrates the progression of blacks in film, an industry that in the past has overlooked blacks, or regulated them to flat, one-dimensional and marginalized figures.
“The film, like the museum, provides a fuller story of black culture and identity,” ayon pa sa press release ng Smithsonian.
The first Smithsonian African American Film Festival will run from October 24-27, and it’s intended to become an annual event.
The festival is designed to discover and celebrate works of cultural significance, providing a platform for both well-known and lesser-known African American image makers.
Kelan lang ay magkasunod na nagwagi ang Black Panther sa dalawang Hollywood awards events.
Nanalo ang Black Panther bilang Best Movie, Best Performance in a Movie (Chadwick Boseman), Best Hero, Best Villain (Michael B. Jordan) sa MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Sa kakatapos lang na BET Awards, nauwi ng Black Panther ang Best Movie at Best Actor (Chadwick Boseman) honors.
