Ryan Coogler Writes Emotional Thank You Letter After Black Panther's Opening Weekend

Ryan Coogler Writes Emotional Thank You Letter After Black Panther's Opening Weekend

In fact, based on the films that Black Panther is now in the company of (its opening weekend is wedged between Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers), if the numbers hold firm, it could make it to the coveted $1 billion benchmark. His seminal arc, 'Panther's Rage, ' is considered one of the great Black Panther stories and clearly influenced the movie in key ways.

The movie was directed by Ryan Coogler, a young black man from Oakland who graduated from Sacramento State University. The cast includes Chadwick Boseman who plays the Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan (Killmonger), Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okeye), Forest Whitaker, Martin Freeman, and Letitia Wright better known as Shuri (a crowd favorite), just to mention a few.

Days after the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Prince T'Challa of Wakanda (Chadwick Boseman) is still mourning the death of his father, King T'Chaka (John Kani). It's the movie that I thought about most as I sat in the theater watching Marvel's Black Panther. "The Black Panther gives us a springboard to lift off the lid about racism and colonization". I encourage you all to break social norms, show love to all your brothers and sisters, not just the ones that look like you.

The theater I was in was filled with people of color, and for the first half of the film, most folks had a bored look on their faces. I saw the female soldiers who protected the kingdom and how the king was surrounded by strong women, and it reminded me of how strong black women have been and will always continue to be.

OK, so the script wasn't bad, but when it comes down to fleshing out the characters, it failed.

Church communities in Chicago, Memphis and Los Angeles have been buying out tickets to "Black Panther", a report stated. "Black Panther" reminded us of what Africa could have become if it was not stripped of its identity, resources, and humanity.

Following the phenomenal success achieved by Black Panther in theaters worldwide last week, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport has started offering flights to the fictional African nation of Wakanda. We know what happens, but how we get there is the crux of it, so we're allowed to have a lot more fun than in the other movies, where you have to deal with a lot of lineage and what's going to happen.
