Black Panther is #1 for the 4th week in a row and has passed the 1 Billion dollar mark at the US Box office. A Wrinkle in Time takes the #2 spot! This has been an historical weekend for black films. Black Panther has broken another record as well, being the first movie with a predominately black cast to make 1 billion worldwide! If you didn’t know, Ryan Coogler (director of Black Panther) is only the second black director ever to direct a movie grossing $1 billion dollars.
A Wrinkle in Time, directed by Ava DuVernay, grossed 33 Million this weekend. With A Wrinkle in Time coming in at #2 at the US Box Office, Ava DuVernay has broken a record as well. She’s the first African American woman to earn this spot!
Both of these are Disney films, so I’m sure there’s a lot of celebrating going on over there. See more on the story here:
