Will "Black Panther" be a game changer?


Finally, T'Challa's final fight scene with Killmonger was truly special. Add into that the A+ CiemaScore, and you have the recipe for another strong weekend at the box office.

"It was the first Marvel superhero movie that was centered around people of color, so that was really nice to see", said Chukwuemeka Ihionu.

I was just reviewing this morning where all these actors are from.

He's played by breakout star of 2017, Daniel Kaluuya, known from his roles in the popular series Black Mirror, and Jordan Peele's award-winning horror film, Get Out.

This sounds like great news to us, now all we need is for Disney or director Ryan Coogler to warm up to the idea. "Fruitvale Station" (2013) was riveting. Don't miss it! You can see it now at the November Theater in Richmond. Now, after this film, his salary should be similar to the likes of Robert Downey Jr. Whether or not the Spider-Man-less movie works, Sony already seems ready to launch yet another Marvel film. Arguably the most memorable storyline was "Who is the Black Panther?" which traced back the lineage of the Black Panther mantle throughout the history of Wakanda. From Get Out to Black Panther, hopefully the success of these films debunks any myths that Black films can not be successful across the globe.

This movie succeeded on so many levels. Black Panther is, at its heart, a movie about resisting colonialism from White powers.

The stand out moments come at the close of the segment, first with the woman who knows exactly why Trump would be verbally sparring with the King of Wakanda. Whether it be family or friends, sometimes the fight is from within. If you have ever wondered where Wakanda actually was in Central Africa, this is the movie for you! They were just extraordinary.

There are so many lessons to be learned from watching "Black Panther".

"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.
