According to MPAA Chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin, the studio's decision to primarily film Black Panther in Georgia helped generate $83.9 million for the Peach State.
“Tonight, we are here to celebrate the talented individuals and vendors who help make Georgia the third largest production center in the nation, and who help bring to life stories, like Black Panther, that make a difference,” said Rivkin. “Black Panther has smashed records for advance ticket sales thanks to the hard work of local crew and vendors, and because the film reflects the breadth and diversity of our global communities.” Black Panther is not the only Marvel Studios movie shot in the Southern state. Many other MCU titles including Spider-Man: Homecoming and the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War found a home in Georgia. (Deadline)
