Actor-Banks says "Black Panther" is more than just a movie, it is a "movement".

The 44-year-old TV personality lauded the new Marvel film, calling the Chadwick Boseman-starrer the "self-esteem and the boost that her community" rightfully deserves, reported.

"This is the moment, we need this. We need this movie right now. It's not a movie, it's a movement. It's a living organism. This is the self-esteem and the boost that my community not just needs right now but deserves," Banks told reporters at the premiere of "Black Panther".

The story revolves around new T'Challa/ (Boseman) who returns to his reclusive, technologically advanced African country of Wakanda after the events in "America: Civil War" to serve as its new leader and how he faces the challenges.

Also starring Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, among others, the film releases in tomorrow.
