America already has a ton of reasons to love Octavia Spencer. But somehow, that list keeps growing.
On Wednesday, the Hidden Figures and The Help star announced her plan for the imminent premiere of Marvel’s Black Panther, and it is incredibly generous. Spencer said she’ll be in Mississippi on opening night and would like to buy out a movie theater to give some folks access to the movie who otherwise might not be able to get a ticket.
She wrote on Instagram:[lborder]
“I will be in MS when this movie opens. I think I will buy out a theatre in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero. I will let you know where and when Mississippi. Stay tuned. #KingsAndQueensWillRise #blackpanthermovie”
We already know that Black Panther is a big deal. Ticket presales alone have taken the record for superhero movie presales and it doesn’t come out for two more weeks.
