Black Panther Joins The Billion Dollar Club



Marvel’s the Black Panther now has the distinct honor of being the highest grossing debut superhero film. In just four weeks the film has grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.

The film starring Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan is the fifth highest grossing movie for Marvel. The other four MCU films which have earned more than a billion dollar are Marvel’s The Avengers, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War. 

Apart from the five MCU movies, the only two superhero films to earn a billion dollar each are from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, namely, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

The international success of Black Panther has helped break “unwritten Hollywood rules,” Jeff Bock, a senior analyst at entertainment research firm Exhibitor Relations, told The New York Times.

“I think about it like a wall crumbling,” he continued. “In terms of Black Panther, no studio can say again, ’Oh, black movies don’t travel, overseas interest will be minimal.’”

Checkout the highest grossing superhero list below:

1. Marvel’s The Avengers – $ 1.518 billion

2. Avengers: Age Of Ultron – $ 1.405 billion

3. Iron Man 3 – $ 1.214 billion

4. Captain America: Civil War – $ 1.153 billion

5. The Dark Knight Rises – $ 1.084 billion

6. The Dark Knight – $ 1.004 billion

Lebron James’ Space Jam Sequel Officially Happening



The long-rumored Space Jam sequel finally has been greenlit.

Lebron James will star and produce the film with Black Panther director Ryan Coogler. Warner Bros has the film slated for a 2019 release.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “It’s so much bigger.

Michael B. Jordan Says Creed II Is About More Than Revenge



Michael B. Jordan is ready to entire the ring again in Creed II.

In the sequel, Adonis Creed will go toe to toe against the son of Ivan Drago. Jordan spoke about Victor Drago’s motivation in the film.

“Victor’s storyline is very layered,” Jordan told the Toronto Sun. “The two guys are similar in a lot of ways…Adonis feels, naturally, a certain animosity towards Viktor and Ivan, and then there are other themes in there: the maturity of growth, the importance of family, of legacy, is what makes Creed so special. It’s not just about revenge.”

When asked if he would be willing to carry on as Adonis Creed for four decades, similar to Stallone, Jordan said he’s definitely up for it.

“If I’m lucky. I want to keep making them as long as they’re good,” he said. “I always want to keep my finger on the pulse. Forty two years, I mean, who knows?”
