Marvel’s Black Panther is showing no signs of slowing down.
Over the weekend, the juggernaut film surpassed the billion dollar mark after it’s China opening. The movie, which opened on February 15, has earned $562 million domestically – making it the seventh-ranked release of all time.
WE SHALL REPEAT … OF ALL TIME!!!
Ryan Coogler’s masterpiece of a film even topped Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle In Time, which opened this weekend.
Although the Disney film only did $33.3 million it’s opening weekend, Black excellence stands strong as Coogler and DuVernay make history as the first two Black directors holding the number one and two spot at the box office.
As the two icons prove that you can do anything you put your mind to despite the color of your skin, it’s Coogler who is giving all the praise to his dear friend.
Over the weekend, the Oakland native penned an “ode” to Ava, suggesting, “Ava DuVernay is someone who makes the impossible look easy. It’s why I feel privileged to call her my big sister. I met her in 2013, but she’s one of those people who you feel like you’ve always known.”
In the letter, posted on ESPN, the Fruitvale Station director wrote that “Ava is a pioneer. She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality.”
