Best blockbuster of 2018: ‘Black Panther’ or ‘Avengers: Infinity War'?
It's the end of the year! And we're facing-off the best music artists, movies, TV shows, video games, sports and pro athletes of 2018. The "Best of 2018" is chosen by a combination of popularity, impact, acclaim, rankings and/or amount sold. But ultimately, we want you to let us know who really won the year in each category.
And don't forget to cast your vote for these other end-of-year debates:
"Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the events of "Captain America: Civil War," returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.
"Black Panther" arguably had the greatest cultural significance of anything movie released in 2018. The critically-praised film holds a fresh rating of 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. It also made over $1.3 billion globally at the box office, ranking at ninth on the "All Time Box Office" list.
While "Black Panther" is a superhero blockbuster, the Kendrick Lamar-produced soundtrack is still banging. It's probably the most banging superhero soundtrack ever. The soundtrack gained two top 10 hits: Kendrick Lamar and SZA's "All the Stars," and Kendrick with The Weeknd on "Pray For Me."
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Only one film topped "Black Panther" at the box office in 2018, and that was "Avengers: Infinity War." The culmination of over 10 years of storytelling in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "Infinity War" made over $2 billion at the global box office, becoming the fourth highest grossing movie of all time. "Infinity War" was no easy task to develop, squeezing the entire MCU into one film. That's why the film's critically acclaim should be celebrated. "Infinity War" holds a fresh rating of 84 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
Every moment in the MCU led us to "Infinity War" and its sequel. Marvel fans can't wait to see how the Avengers make a comeback and save the fate of the galaxy, which has already been conquered by Thanos in the next "Avengers" movie. "Infinity War" was arguably the most anticipated film of 2018, and it'll only be topped by the sequel.
