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

7. Black Panther – $ 1 billion 


Deadpool Test Screening Is Scoring High With Audiences



Deadpool 2 has a lot of hype surrounding the sequel and is the key to expanding the X-Men universe for Fox. There were early rumors that the sequel screening was performing poorly, forcing FOX into reshoots.  But according to a new report, the film is testing higher than the first movie.

THR reports the sequel scored a 98 in one screening and a 94 in another screening, while the first Deadpool’s highest test screening was only a 91. Fox will be using the 98-scoring cut of the film, according to THR.

“After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”

Deadpool 2 features Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy. David Leitch takes over as the director in the sequel.

Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters on May 18th.

Tessa Thompson Teaming Up With Chris Hemsworth Again In Men In Black Reboot



Sony has made the Men In Black franchise priority for the studio. Earlier this month Sony announced Chris Hemsworth was attached to star in the reboot. Now reports have his fellow Thor: Ragnarok co-star Tessa Thompson joining him to fight more aliens.

Variety is reporting that Thompson is in talks to star in the reboot directed by F. Gary Gay.

Gray’s last two films as director – Straight Outta Compton and Fast & Furious 8 – have been significant hits. And if he signs on the dotted line here, he’ll be working from a script by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum.

The movie is likely to follow the tone of the original trilogy, but simply move on and bring in a new cast. There’s no word yet on when to expect it, though, but don’t be surprised if Sony tries to get it filming this year.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will not reprise their roles in the film as agents J and K. Sony had originally planned on combining the Men in Black and 21 Jump Street franchises. But signs point to that being scrapped for a film closer to the original.

The documentary will feature interviews with those involved in the creation of the children’s television series, including producer Margy Whitmer, who quips, “You take all of the elements that make good television, and do the exact opposite — you have ‘Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’….yet, it worked.” Others interviewed in the trailer include Elizabeth Seamans, who played Mrs. McFeely, and Francois Clemmons, who played Officer Clemmons.
