Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther has begun production.
Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to Wakanda to take his place as King.
The Marvel Studios production also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker. Coogler directs from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole.
Marvel’s Black Panther is slated to premiere on February 16th, 2018. Further details follow…
Bolstered by franchise hits from Lucasfilm, Marvel and Pixar – along with solo hits from Disney and Walt Disney Animation Studios, The Walt Disney Studios will be the first studio to surpass the $7 billion mark in theatrical grosses some time today.
Coming into today, the combined grosses from all Disney-owned studios sat at $6,988.3 million.
For details on how Disney reached this milestone, read on.
Here it is. I don’t know if I trust the Spider-Man movies anymore. Sony completely botched the reboot and then abandoned us in the middle of the story. Now we have a 3rd reboot in less than 15 years. With that said, this trailer looks pretty good and the Vulture looks pretty bad ass.
The Spider-Man we know and love makes his first appearance in a trailer for his own movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Quippy, cocky yet insecure – the kid at the losers’ table in the lunchroom, daydreaming about the hot girl who’s way out of his lead; the hero who takes down a bunch of thugs while wisecracking – this is the first co-production between 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios and it looks like they got it just right.
And Michael Keaton’s vulture? If his Batman had gone bad it might have looked like this.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Spider-Man: Homecoming will open wide (very wide) on July 7, 2017.
The new teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is killer! Baby Groot, frustrated Rocket and embarrassed Star-Lord are indications that GotG2 will be as odd and happy-making as the first one. Plus, Sweet’s Fox on the Run. (Gotta love that!)
Don’t believe me? Check out it out after the break. GotG2 opens on May 5, 2017.
UPDATE: I just got in from seeing Doctor Strange in IMAX 3D (the advance screening was in a regular old theater). When you read – or reread – my review, square it. S.A. Wiebe
Marvel Studios has another winner on their hands. Doctor Strange is one of the best Marvel movies – and that’s saying something!
Trailers and online behind-the-scenes featurettes have been uniformly intriguing – showing us enough to tantalize without really spoiling anything major. Just the fact that the film’s heavy-duty cast – Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetal Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg – seemed to be having great fun was more than enough to suggest something special was going on.
