Black Panther, new Marvel show air exclusively on HOOQ
Global hit Black Panther, which grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide and is the second highest grossing film of 2018, is now available for rental on HOOQ, the largest Video on Demand service in South East Asia.
Black Panther is the 18th film released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has been acclaimed by critics the world over.
“HOOQ subscribers get access to one Transactional Video on the Demand (TVOD) movie of their choice every month, and any additional rental will be the usual price. The films will be some of the freshest picks from the biggest Hollywood studios,” said Sheila Paul, HOOQ Philippines Country Manager.
Black Panther tells the story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) who is set to become the new King of Wakanda following the death of his father T’Chaka during the events of Captain America: Civil War. The movie is also the story of Wakanda, which has remained under the radar by choice because of its hidden treasure, which could lead to the world’s destruction at the hands of the wrong people. The film was released on Feb. 15 internationally and on Feb. 16 in the United States.
Fans can also now enjoy a Marvel marathon on HOOQ with Avengers: Infinity Wars, The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man, Thor, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel’s Inhumans, Runaways and, coming soon, Cloak and Dagger are also on HOOQ.
“Cloak and Dagger is Marvel’s latest series to be released based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name. Fans of Marvel can enjoy in the romantic exploration of Tandy Bowen / Dagger (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson / Cloak (Aubrey Joseph) as these teenagers discover their superpowers,” said HOOQ Philippines Content and Programming head Jeffrey Remigio.
Cloak and Dagger will be aired exclusively on the same day as the US telecast. The first two episodes will air live on June 8 with new episodes every Friday.
