Marvel's introductory film to Wakanda superhero Black Panther continues to break records, recently crossing the $1 billion mark in worldwide sales, the studio is confirming that a sequel is definitely on-track to happen.

Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy, is also a cultural powerhouse that boasts the continent’s biggest film industry, known as Nollywood. Lagos is the country’s filmmaking hub.

Just two days ago, Nollywood’s Wakanda Forever was released.

The Nigerian version of Wakanda Forever 1&2 is set in a village in Nigeria and weaves traditional storytelling with juju/voodoo and comedic special effects to explore family and lineage in an African society.

Comic Book Resources (CBR) covered that mumble rapper, Lil Yachty, is one of two musicians to be cast as DC characters. The second of which is electro-pop singer-songwriter, Halsey, who will play Wonder Woman in the film.



Thanks T'Challa :)

‘Black Panther’ an $84 million economic impact blockbuster for Georgia

After months of critical accolades, headlines over record-setting early ticket sales, and talk that this is the Marvel movie to beat, the world is waiting to see just how much cash “Black Panther” will pull in this weekend when it hits movie screens.

But for the Atlanta and Georgia businesses that took part in the production of the film, it’s already a blockbuster for the Peach State.

The filmmakers spent $83.9 million in production of the Atlanta-filmed movie, plunking down millions for caterers, prop makers, sound and visual equipment, hotel rooms and lumber for sets. The movie also had a cast and crew of more than 3,100 people.

“It’s not just about the Georgians who work on the movies,” said Craig Miller, chairman of the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Advisory Commission. “The benefits of a film like “Black Panther” help everyone, from operators of the hotel rooms that are rented to the caterers to the people who provide the coolers to cool down a set and the warmers to warm it up.”

 The numbers tell the story, industry leaders said. The “Black Panther” filmmakers spent $10.8 million on rental equipment and grips, $9.4 million on lumber, hardware and supplies, $5.6 million lodging and $2 million on transportation, just to name a few revenue benefits.

From its humble beginnings in 2008 when the state first created tax incentives to lure Hollywood to the “capital of the South,” Georgia’s film industry hit a record $2.7 billion in revenue in fiscal 2017 from 320 feature films and television productions, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Developments. That compares to the about $93 million in film revenue the state earned a decade ago.

Among the films and TV projects that put Atlanta one the map over the past decade are marquee titles such as “Hunger Games,” “Spider-man Homecoming,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and Clint Eastwood’s latest “The 15:17 to Paris.” On the small screen, the offerings include “Walking Dead,” the updated “Dynasty” series, “Quad” and the aptly named “Atlanta.”

ut “Black Panther” could hold a special place in Atlanta’s film history. It joins a small but growing list of films featuring a primarily black cast — and black director in Ryan Coogler — that are being honored for a less stereotypical portrayal of blacks while also faring well at the box office. Think “Selma” or “Hidden Figures” as examples.

“A film like “Black Panther” gives great inspiration to everyone who is aspiring to be in the industry but also gives you pride as an African American if you’re not in the industry,” said Kathleen Bertrand, founder of Atlanta’s BronzeLens Film Festival, which focuses on bringing attention to Atlanta as a center for film and film production for people of color.

That has particular resonance because Ava DuVernay, the director of “Selma,” got her start at the BronzeLens festival and recently became for the first woman of color to make a film with a $100 million-plus budget with this spring’s “A Wrinkle in Time.”

“When I’ve got young directors bringing their films to BronzeLens, we want the next Ryan Coogler to bring his film or her film or the next Ava DuVernay to bring her film to give it a platform to be seen,” Bertrand said.

Others said the film cements what already is apparent: Atlanta is the film capital of the South.

Marcus “MJ” Jackson, the founder and owner of Sovereign Board and Production, which protects floors and edifices of houses, buildings and facilities during filming, said there are so many films or TV shows in production that he often finds himself on several different sets a week.

“Most people don’t realize that at least 100-plus people can be in a house or a building when a production comes in,” said Jackson, who was working on a film and television project Wednesday at the Woodruff Arts Center. “We help to make sure we don’t ruin the property.”

LaRonda Sutton, owner of Film City, a consultancy for cities interested in attracting movies, said Atlanta, which in the early days of the city’s career in the movies, was used as prop. It was background for “Any City, U.S.A.”

But today, because of the strength of Georgia’s film industry, it’s a character in films such as “Baby Driver,” “Mother’s Day,” and the “Ride Along” franchise.

“I think Atlanta is no longer trying to get there as a film destination,” said Sutton, who used to run Atlanta’s Office of Film and Entertainment. “We are there.”

Thanks T'Challa  :)

The case for Black Panther as a 2019 Oscar behemoth

Quote
Best Picture

I’m calling it now: The Oscars will nominate Black Panther for Best Picture next year. Whether it’s as a movie that could win the whole thing, or as one of those “just happy to be here” nominees, remains to be seen. But seeing how often Black Panther was referenced at the 2018 Oscars, it’s clear everybody in Hollywood knows this is not just another superhero movie. It’s a cultural phenomenon — and the Oscars love nominating a cultural phenomenon. (See also: Gone With the Wind, The Sound of Music, Jaws, Star Wars, etc., etc., etc.)

The big thing standing in Black Panther’s way is its genre. No superhero movie has ever been nominated for Best Picture, and the expansion to more than five nominees in 2009 happened because The Dark Knight was snubbed for Best Picture that year, despite receiving nominations in eight other categories. And even though Wonder Woman was a similar, if smaller, cultural phenomenon in the summer of 2017, the Oscars snubbed it in every category.

But Black Panther’s secret weapon is its reviews, which are really, really good. If the Oscars need an excuse to get over their squeamishness about the film’s genre, all voters need to do is look at Black Panther’s scores on Rotten Tomatoes (97 percent) and Metacritic (88) to have those tastes validated.

Good to see Okoye is finally out of Limbo. I'm not excited about seeing the Midnight Brats again but hopefully the true leader of the Doras can keep them in line. And at least Nnedi is writing characters she actually wants to write instead of throwing Shade at T'challa.

Yeah, f*ck this.

Does Marvel REALLY f*cking thing the main people that loved the DM are also Spider-Man fans and not, you know, Black Panther fans?

You think they really wanted to see the DM's in New York and not in Africa and Wakanda? Double fail since "afrofuturism" Nnedi is gonna be stuck writing about NY

You want to showcase Okoye? Put her in the main BP book. She hasn't been name dropped since Priest for Godsake.

Coates and his idiot friend Gay couldn't even have the foresight to put her in the World of Wakanda book as the main teacher or something.

This will fail, and fail hard, as Nnedi has no respect for the star of the mythos at all. She is no better than Gay in that regard. Typical "I can push my own female characters, I don't need no one man" bullsh*t

Black Panther, as a comic character, isn't at the level where you can just throw his supporting cast in other books and expect it to sell. Spider-Man can barely pull that off.

Black Panther mythos are about T'challa. end of discussion.

I hope this fails harder than WoW and the Crew. I'm done with this sh*t.

The correct response would have been to integrate the popular movie crew into the damn main book.

They ain't got a Bast damn clue. Jerry Krause running the bulls level of stupid. Trying to start a team around Toni freaking Kucoc or something.

To be quite frank, and I really hate to even think like this but the more of this sh*t i see them try and pull, the more i feel Black Panther really needs to stick to non-effeminate black males to write his mytho.  Not that i have personal problem with women, or momma's boy black males in touch with their 'sensitive side' who feel masculinity is the root of all evil... but these super feminists agenda types like Gay, Nnedi, Harvey, and Coates [who just reeks of estrogen]..  ALWAYS pull the same sh*t.  Always the same try-hard mistakes over and over and over. 

Whereas Evans, Coogler, and even going back to Hudlin, McDuffie, and Priest... they embrace the titular character and aren't always looking for ways to get him outta there or to push him to the back for pet characters.  And they showed they are able to do this while being inclusive to the female characters.  I know Priest was a bit wishy washy in that regard but i stand strongly with the other 4 when it comes to that.

But this sh*t we've been seeing the past couple years now... this is like what, the 4th or 5th attempt of this same bullsh*t?  This is f*cking ridiculous

That should have been the relaunched BP #1 with those characters.

But they are too stupid to realize simple business practice.

Those are the characters that made a billion.  So the 'logical' conclusion is to make a mini about the characters that face planted out the gate.  Fukkin idiots

This is 100% not true. That isn't how comic sales work.

Hype drives the initial sales. You don't find out how good the story is until 3-4 issues have alreayd been pre ordered by the shops.

There is a reason no series gains sales 4 issues in. It is always the initial hype driving the large #1 and #2 and then the sales start trickling down.

If you don't get that monstrous #1, the book is dead in the water immediately.

The story can only kill a book. It cant save it.

Yup and given that Infininity War supposedly starts 2 years after Civil War, and Black Panther occurred a week after Civil War, I low-key hope BP 2 starts with them already married since it would've been like 2.5 to 3 or even 4 years from when BP ended.

That should have been the relaunched BP #1 with those characters.

But they are too stupid to realize simple business practice.

Those are the characters that made a billion.  So the 'logical' conclusion is to make a mini about the characters that face planted out the gate.  Fukkin idiots


THIS This should of been the cover, the focus, everything. Revamp the entire mythos with the mcu versions.

Put in there that Tchalla would take Shuri into his lab (now hers) and show her all the stuff he did and that's what got her into being such a Tech guru when he became the BP and had less time to tinker with her.

Let's get some kilmonger revamp, M'Baku looking more badass and playing a foil to Tchalla. Have Queen Nakia Nyong'o show up. General Okoye..

But random Doras people showed they give Zero sh*ts about when the first spin off crashed and burned works too

They tried a mini with Shuri going around partnering up with the big names. How did that do? Not rhetorical, I didn't track sales back then. lol

Funny thing is Coogler did all that great stuff for Tchalla while still making the point that the women in Wakanda see just as important as the men.. yet the comics these creators jump onto that whole division trash again. "Under the shadow of the throne"... This is the Black Panther Mythos. Without him there is no spin off. They want to get to z from without going through the alphabet

‘Black Panther’ an $84 million economic impact blockbuster for Georgia

https://www.myajc.com/business/black-panther-million-economic-impact-blockbuster-for-georgia/q3o2dBmIagYXkFc4m73rSM/ (https://www.myajc.com/business/black-panther-million-economic-impact-blockbuster-for-georgia/q3o2dBmIagYXkFc4m73rSM/)

Quote
After months of critical accolades, headlines over record-setting early ticket sales, and talk that this is the Marvel movie to beat, the world is waiting to see just how much cash “Black Panther” will pull in this weekend when it hits movie screens.

But for the Atlanta and Georgia businesses that took part in the production of the film, it’s already a blockbuster for the Peach State.

The filmmakers spent $83.9 million in production of the Atlanta-filmed movie, plunking down millions for caterers, prop makers, sound and visual equipment, hotel rooms and lumber for sets. The movie also had a cast and crew of more than 3,100 people.

“It’s not just about the Georgians who work on the movies,” said Craig Miller, chairman of the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Advisory Commission. “The benefits of a film like “Black Panther” help everyone, from operators of the hotel rooms that are rented to the caterers to the people who provide the coolers to cool down a set and the warmers to warm it up.”

 The numbers tell the story, industry leaders said. The “Black Panther” filmmakers spent $10.8 million on rental equipment and grips, $9.4 million on lumber, hardware and supplies, $5.6 million lodging and $2 million on transportation, just to name a few revenue benefits.

From its humble beginnings in 2008 when the state first created tax incentives to lure Hollywood to the “capital of the South,” Georgia’s film industry hit a record $2.7 billion in revenue in fiscal 2017 from 320 feature films and television productions, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Developments. That compares to the about $93 million in film revenue the state earned a decade ago.

Among the films and TV projects that put Atlanta one the map over the past decade are marquee titles such as “Hunger Games,” “Spider-man Homecoming,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and Clint Eastwood’s latest “The 15:17 to Paris.” On the small screen, the offerings include “Walking Dead,” the updated “Dynasty” series, “Quad” and the aptly named “Atlanta.”

ut “Black Panther” could hold a special place in Atlanta’s film history. It joins a small but growing list of films featuring a primarily black cast — and black director in Ryan Coogler — that are being honored for a less stereotypical portrayal of blacks while also faring well at the box office. Think “Selma” or “Hidden Figures” as examples.

“A film like “Black Panther” gives great inspiration to everyone who is aspiring to be in the industry but also gives you pride as an African American if you’re not in the industry,” said Kathleen Bertrand, founder of Atlanta’s BronzeLens Film Festival, which focuses on bringing attention to Atlanta as a center for film and film production for people of color.

That has particular resonance because Ava DuVernay, the director of “Selma,” got her start at the BronzeLens festival and recently became for the first woman of color to make a film with a $100 million-plus budget with this spring’s “A Wrinkle in Time.”

“When I’ve got young directors bringing their films to BronzeLens, we want the next Ryan Coogler to bring his film or her film or the next Ava DuVernay to bring her film to give it a platform to be seen,” Bertrand said.

Others said the film cements what already is apparent: Atlanta is the film capital of the South.

Marcus “MJ” Jackson, the founder and owner of Sovereign Board and Production, which protects floors and edifices of houses, buildings and facilities during filming, said there are so many films or TV shows in production that he often finds himself on several different sets a week.

“Most people don’t realize that at least 100-plus people can be in a house or a building when a production comes in,” said Jackson, who was working on a film and television project Wednesday at the Woodruff Arts Center. “We help to make sure we don’t ruin the property.”

LaRonda Sutton, owner of Film City, a consultancy for cities interested in attracting movies, said Atlanta, which in the early days of the city’s career in the movies, was used as prop. It was background for “Any City, U.S.A.”

But today, because of the strength of Georgia’s film industry, it’s a character in films such as “Baby Driver,” “Mother’s Day,” and the “Ride Along” franchise.

“I think Atlanta is no longer trying to get there as a film destination,” said Sutton, who used to run Atlanta’s Office of Film and Entertainment. “We are there.”

Thanks T'Challa  :)

SUPREME ILLUMINATION

You know what I think, brethren?

I think that THEY KNOW THEY WOULD MAKE STUPID MONEY IN PILES IF THEY GAVE BP LOVE. And the reason they don't?

...is because Afrikans will see the $ the Afrikan NOT MARVEL BP makes. Said BP? Will create a market for Afrikan characters. And you know what we will do with that? Same thing we did with hiphop. Outmode and outdate corporate control. We will take the whole thing over and not only be the talent and creators but the owners and controllers.

By constantly green-lighting the blatant bushels of bull butt droppings that are the stories of TNC et al, Marvel simultaneously gets credit as being a "willing to gamble on POC company" while undercutting the terrifying possibility of T'Challa achieving the notoriety and acclaim as being the "cooler than Batman [ and every other White supercape ]" character that he really is. And T'Challa's shine? Will reawaken the semi-dormant "ultimate cool standard" applied to uniquely Afrikan American...as opposed to "coopted Afrikan-American cum American pop-hiphop/international pop"...culture. In other words? We will get international acclaim for that which is uniquely and has always been uniquely ours. We will be restored to our pinnacle position of creators,controllers, purveyors and the ultimate infinite incarnators of All That Is Cool.

And that? Will unleash us online in unfettered moneymaking waves. Including Afrikan crytptocurrency or its equivalent. Freeing Afrika instantly in ways far superior to the way that Gadhaffi tried with his idea of the golden dinar.

 What do you call Black Wall Street...with security forces, its own distinct culture, etc...when it's gone global?

WAKANDA IN REAL LIFE.

Neither Marvel nor DC nor any other nonAfrikan powerhouse will allow a single property to remove them from their monopolistic control of and stranglehold on comics worldwide. And that's whassup for real.


YOU HAVE BEEN SUPREMELY ILLUMINATED BY THE SUPREME ILLUMINATI
