I checked it out yesterday.  It was pretty decent, I'd give it a B.  All the actors, Paula, Omar, Rosalyn Sanchez and Laz Alonzo do a really good job.

The lead-in to the main plot happened a little slower than I expected.  The movie's barely 90 minutes, though..
There's a twist that's hinted at earlier on, but I didn't see right away.
The climax wasn't as action packed as I would have hoped.

I wouldn't mind seeing the main actors together in another film.

I want to see T'Challa's space armor suit, as well as the space vehicles that he will need to use.

I'd never heard of her before today-

Somebody on my Facebook feed shared one of her vids--

She's very cute, but sheesh... quite the GOP cheerleader.. lol.. ah, bless her heart..

And apparently CRTV is a paid-subscription based TV/web network, exclusively conservative-based, Fox without the Murdochs, I suppose.

I think that Panther would be a great hero with certain mystic/tech skills and gadgets but mostly leaning toward tech.

Hudlin TV / BET orders a Boomerang Reboot

-- Are Mr. Reggie and Eddie involved as producers?  Hmmm...

New president Scott Mills talks with THR about his vision for the Viacom network, which also has picked up a Will Packer comedy and a drama inspired by the life of 'Soul Train' mastermind Don Cornelius.
BET is doubling down on scripted programming.

Under orders from new network president Scott Mills, the Viacom-owned cable network has handed out straight-to-series orders for a half-hour comedic reboot of 1992 Eddie Murphy feature Boomerang; comedy Peachtree Place, produced by Girls Trip's Will Packer; and a drama, American Soul, inspired by the life of Soul Train mastermind Don Cornelius. 

All three pickups are part of a push to lean into what Mills says BET viewers want most: premium scripted content. It's the first programming mandate to come from Mills, who in December was tapped to take over for Debra Lee (with the latter remaining chairman and CEO of the Viacom-owned cable network). Mills inherited the role after serving as Viacom's executive vp and chief administrative officer, overseeing human resources, real estate, facilities and security. He previously worked for BET Networks, serving as president and COO, where he led business operations.

"The shows that have been most successful on BET are all scripted: The Game, The New Edition Story, Being Mary Jane, Real Husbands of Hollywood. When you succeed in that space, it has a wonderful effect on the brand," Mills tells The Hollywood Reporter as part of an exclusive interview ahead of BET's upfront announcements.

The goal, Mills says, is to increase original programming by 21 percent, including nine original movies and new scripted series as he looks to leverage relationships with prominent African-American writers and producers and Viacom's corporate siblings. The scripted push arrives as BET is also bringing back its signature awards shows, including the BET Awards, Soul Train Awards, Black Girls Rock and Hip-Hop Awards.

BET Taps New President, Debra Lee to Remain Chairman and CEO
In terms of Tuesday's orders, a writer and producing team on Boomerang have not yet been determined. The 10-episode, half-hour comedy hails from corporate sibling Paramount Television. Like the original, it revolves around a successful executive who finds that his lifestyle choices have turned back on him when his new boss turns out to be a bigger deviant that he is. It's described as an updated version that explores contemporary workplace dynamics, including the changing role of gender, office politics, relationships and the conflicts between Generation X and millennials.

American Soul is inspired by the personal trials and professional successes of a young, ambitious and troubled impresario, Don Cornelius. The 10-episode drama is an unflinching look at the entrepreneur, his Soul Train dancers, crew and musicians in a cutthroat Hollywood in the 1970s and how they work, play, rise and fall against the backdrop of the show most responsible for the way African-American culture was perceived by the world. Jesse Collins, Jonathan Prince and Devon Greggory executive produce. Don's son, Tony Cornelius, will co-exec produce alongside Andy Horne. Greggory will pen the pilot and Jesse Collins Entertainment will produce.

Packer's 10-episode comedy Peachtree Place follows five 30-somethings living in Atlanta as they try to build professional and personal lives they can be proud of, but the one thing they donít have keeps impeding their progress: love. Unresolved feelings from college are uncovered and secrets revealed, forcing these friends to finally deal with uncomfortable truths about each other. Packer exec produces; Felischa Marye will pen the series and co-exec produce; Will Packer Media's Sheila Ducksworth will also serve as a co-EP. Packer, meanwhile, also will produce three movies of the week for BET. Details on the three additional movies of the week, all set to air in 2019, will be announced at a later date.

Anybody know where the ladies are now?  Competing for 2020?

what is the hyena clan?

I have privately felt that there should be a new "Jackal" character and it should be an African villain for the Panther.
