Somerset House Film4 Summer Screen: Black Panther

Celebrate the 200th screening in Film4 Summer Screen history with director Ryan Coogler’s superhero spectacular, set in the beautifully realised, fictional African country of Wakanda.

Certificate 12A
Duration 134 mins
Film starts approximately 21.00

All the lavish, large scale thrills that we’ve come to expect from a Marvel film are splashed across the big screen in bold and brilliant fashion, but what makes this one-of-a-kind blockbuster worthy of multiple viewings is the powerful drama at its core.

When T’Challa, the king of Wakanda and the Black Panther of the title, ascends to the throne he is faced with challenges that are spiritual, political and directly physical, creating a Shakespearean drama that becomes increasingly compelling as the action intensifies.

The first superhero film to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, and the winner of further Oscars for Costume Design, Production Design and Original Score, Black Panther is that rare thing – an acclaimed award-winner that also manages to be a fan favourite.

A stellar cast, including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Daniel Kaluuya and BAFTA Rising Star Letitia Wright, plus a soundtrack produced by Kendrick Lamar, adds to the film’s status as a landmark achievement.

Audio-described headsets are available for this screening. If you would like to request a headset, please contact the Box Office.
