Black Panther Box Office Collection Day 4

Black Panther Box Office Collection Day 4

Black Panther director Ryan Coogler knows this global reception and the representation of Black faces in his record-breaking film are highly significant to Black folks everywhere.

Congrats to the entire #blackpanther team! Particularly racial injustices. So, when you put all those aspects of a person together, you get one heck of a weirdo that's for sure.

Right-wing trolls had previously launched a campaign to give Black Panther purposely low user scores on Rotten Tomatoes in protest against Disney's increased spotlight on BME and female characters in recent years.

Apparently Will Smith, Denzel Washington and Wesley Snipes did not make the cut.

This new superhero movie in unlike any of the other Marvel films because it's not just one good guy vs. one bad guy.

The movie manages to seamlessly bring together ideas of isolationism, immigration, systemic racial tensions and weave them into the basic hero's journey structure; creating a film that carries all these sophisticated messages while being an overall great superhero action movie. The film stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, who is the protector and King of Wakanda, a fictional advanced nation.

Now that Marvel's Black Panther has taken the global box office, audiences have taken notice of a village in IL apparently pronounced the same way as the film's setting, but spelled differently: Wauconda.

She also follows up on her first tweet with, "Fatha Gawd, we come before you today to block the entry of enemies of progress and pedophiles into the sacred land of Wakanda!" But in the US, a different Wakanda-or rather, Wauconda, Illinois-is getting some newfound attention from Black Panther fans.

"To the press who wrote about the film for those who hadn't yet seen it, and encouraged audiences to come out".

"Filmmaking is a team sport".

Speaking of, if there was one major criticism I could levy against the film, it would be that the scenes in the fictitious country don't offer much in the way of a casual, pedestrian look at the empire.

Although he didn't appear in Black Panther, renaissance man Donald Glover was still able to leave his mark on Marvel's latest superhero movie. We chose to give her individual micro braids that we could move and bend really easily in order to create a lot of different styles.
