Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was shown on multiple screens at Filmhouse Cinemas IMAX Lekki in Lagos, Deadline reports.

Moses Babatope and Kene Okwuosa, who founded FilmOne Entertainment, said in a statement obtained by the outlet, “Being instrumental to the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in West Africa is a proud achievement and a milestone for us and the entire FilmOne team.”

The Nigerian event comes after Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had premieres in Los Angeles on Oct. 26, and in London this past Thursday.

An official synopsis from Marvel states that Wakanda Forever follows Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Wright, 29), M’Baku (Duke, 35), Okoye (Gurira, 44) Nakia (Nyong’o, 39) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) as they “fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.”

Wakanda Forever runs for two hours and 41 minutes, making it the second-longest MCU film behind only 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new movie comes two years after Chadwick Boseman‘s death, and incorporates the franchise star’s loss into the sequel.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in theaters Friday.
