If you haven't seen Marvel's Black Panther yet, then you're one of few and you need to go. The movie has grossed over $500 million worldwide in its first week. Aside from setting records and rave reviews, the movie has also introduced us to the fictional country of Wakanda.
This amazing (and pretend) place is breathtaking visually, and holds many secrets and wonders. So much so, that it has become the hashtag for the movie - #wakandaforever!
So this week, in a brilliant attempt to tie in to the movie, Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport tweeted out this image depicting a departing flight to this magical land:
"The bags are packed" it stated, "#WakandaForever". Obviously, it was just an amazing marketing ploy to be included in the buzz of the film, and it worked! Parts of the film were actually filmed in Atlanta, so it was a perfect tie-in.
People were quick to respond, including Marvel Studios and one of the stars of the film, Lupita Nyong'o.
Apart from La Femme Nakia, what else is on the in-flight entertainment? T’Challa’s Angels, M’Baku To The Future, Shuri’s Gotta Have It, Killmonger Bill, W’Kabi In The Woods...?— Lupita Nyong'o (@Lupita_Nyongo) February 20, 2018
And these are just funny...
