For now, she is spreading the good news about the movie's sales thus far.
The women of Wakanda are kicking ass and taking names in this featurette from Marvel's upcoming "Black Panther".
The former record was held by Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War", in which Chadwick Boseman's King T'Challa, known as "Black Panther", made his first onscreen appearance.
Lupita was so awestruck by how quickly the advanced tickets were scooped up by ravenous Black Panther fans that she had to share the story on Twitter to reveal that after she promoted pre-sale tickets as available, she tried to get them herself but excited moviegoers had beat her to it.More news: Hot Tickers: Align Technology, Inc.

"Black Panther is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now", Erik Davis, managing editor at Fandango, said in the release. Viewing figures for "Black Panther's" first trailer last summer were so high, the teaser immediately became one of the three most-watched Marvel trailers in its first 24 hours.
Some people admitted they bought multiple tickets, others commiserated with the actress, and some even invited her as their date to the opening night of the film.
Alongside Boseman, the movie features a star-studded cast which includes; Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and the list goes on.
The heroic adventure opens on February 16, which is part of the four-day President's Day holiday weekend and adjacent to Valentine's Day which falls on a Wednesday this year, per Deadline.
