(AllHipHop News) The self-described King Of The South helped some Atlanta moviegoers experience the highly anticipated movie about the King of Wakanda. On February 12, Tip "T.I." Harris headed to the Walmart store located on Cascade Road for a free Black Panther ticket-giveaway.
More than 250 people of all ages and VIP guests got to see the superhero movie set in a technologically advanced African country the following day. The Atlanta screening was sort of a homecoming for Black Panther because the motion picture was filmed in the city and reportedly generated over $83 million for the local economy.
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o, Daniel Kaluuva, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Martin Freeman, and Andy Serkis. Ryan Coogler's third directorial feature has garnered a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 87/100 score on Metacritic.
