Marvel’s Black Panther is still taking over the Big Apple with a screening of the superhero film.

Celebs trekked it to the Museum of Modern Art to see the highly anticipated film of the year, host by The Cinema Society. The night’s festivities brought out several celebs all dressed up for the occasion.

Birthday girl Danai Gurira was a total showstopper on the carpet in a gold dress with dramatic ruching. We hear she celebrated her 40th birthday with a Coming To America themed bash with her Black Panther castmates.

She wasn't the only one serving up a bold look that fit the theme of the movie. "Power" star Naturi Naughton, actress Condola Rashad (daughter of actress Phylicia Rashad), Snoop Dogg's son Cordell Broadus, CNN's Van Jones (joined by CNN's Don Lemon), Get Out star Lil Rel, model icon Iman, and TV personality Sherri Shepherd were also decked out in African garb:

Daddy-daughter date! Comedian Chris Rock brought his daughter Zahara Rock as his date for the movie. By the way, his Netflix comedy special "Chris Rock: Tamborine" will be available to stream TONIGHT at midnight. It's the first stand-up special from the award winning comedian in ten years.
