We edited our films across the hall from each other for 8 months. We talked in our edit bays, on walks around the lot. About our films, our dreams. Tonight, his comes true.

The #BlackPanther premiere is the craziest I’ve ever been to. We’ve been stuck here in nonmoving traffic forever. I can only think this means this movie is going to be HUGE. pic.twitter.com/Zr1kcYCfCS— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 30, 2018
Believe the hype. Believe the buzz. Believe the words “cultural phenomenon.” #blackpanther is about to blow minds and take names. My God. Where to even begin. Long live the King. pic.twitter.com/cECg2mxnKw— Josh Gad (@joshgad) January 30, 2018
Black Panther was incredible, and powerful and everything we need right now. The words “cultural phenomenon” have never felt more appropriate. Everyone pleaseeeee do yourself a favor and go see it.— Chloe Bennet (@ChloeBennet4) January 30, 2018
#BlackPanther is a love letter about blackness, to a world that often ghettoizes it without realizing that it is on black backs that this planet revolves.— Tre'vell Anderson (@TrevellAnderson) January 30, 2018

Black Panther. So very good. I cheered and laughed and pumped my fist. I’ve never seen a super hero movie like it. Everybody involved with it deserves a medal and a high five.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) January 30, 2018
BLACK PANTHER is not screwing around. By far the most political Marvel chapter, to the point I had to remind myself this is a Marvel movie. BLACK PANTHER is a movie with a lot to say.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) January 30, 2018
Also, Michael B. Jordan ... damn
