Director Ryan Coogler thanks fans for 'Black Panther' success

Black Panther soundtrack soars

The superhero movie that premiered in the middle of Black History Month has a black director (Ryan Coogler) and an nearly entirely black cast. The Flossmoor woman was right.

Director Ryan Coogler thanked fans on Twitter for coming out to the movie theater and making his latest film, the Marvel epic Black Panther, a box office success. T'Challa must rally forces and gather allies to fight against his enemies and release the full power of the Black Panther. While the movie takes place in the fictional country of Wakanda, it is obviously inspired by a mix of African tribes and traditions, such as the fashion and music featured in the film. I just wanna say congratulations to you.

"We celebrate BREAKING BOX OFFICE RECORDS with @blackpanther for many reasons, but chief among them is because we had you as our king", she went on.

David Hamilton Golland, of Governors State University, saw the movie on Saturday at the Marcus Theater in Chicago Heights.

It is largely about expressing a strong sense of pride, history and culture for generations of blacks who have felt removed from their African identity since the first African slaves arrived in Jamestown in 1619. I sincerely hope people continue to throw wads of cash at it-the movie deserves everything it gets. But this stand-alone film by Oakland-bred Ryan Coogler leaves the matter there and tells of T'Challa's war to retain his crown. It also is rich in a rare metal known as vibranium.

LIMBONG: Keep in mind, these big worldwide numbers we've been talking about - all before "Black Panther" opens in huge markets like Russia, Japan and China. Some have also pointed out that the film shares a message that connects with the Indian audience as well.

Turkey warns against Syria's military involvement in Afrin
On Jan. 20, it launched a major air and ground offensive, pounding the enclave with airstrikes and artillery on a daily basis. Cavusoglu said the operation, dubbed "Olive Branch", was aimed at "removing terrorists" from its southern border.

Terracotta theft: Chinese anger over stolen warrior thumb
They were built by Chinese Emperor Quin Shi Huang, who died in 210 BCE and believed they'd serve as protection in the afterlife. The museum noticed the missing thumb on January 8 - more than two weeks after the alleged incident - and reported it to police.

That sentiment is shared by many who view "Black Panther" as the beginning of a powerful wave toward meaningful cultural representation and equity in Hollywood.

Over the long weekend, a lot of people saw "Black Panther".

Purham's father, Laurence Huntly of Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood, was equally satisfied with the movie and made mention of its final message as a call for unity. How will the Black Panther respond to this injustice?

"It's headlined by a black superhero", Townsel said. Before she's joined by our special guest host, Chelsea, Pam takes the first few minutes to catch you up on some of last week's biggest headlines.

Tim Davis has been selling comics at Alternate Reality in Chicago's Mount Greenwood neighborhood for 23 years. Even more awesome will be seeing T'Challa travel through space in this galactic adventure. He's not sure if the same thing will happen for Black Panther. Shuri coyly laughs at Bucky as he looks out over a Wakandan river, saying, "You have so much more to learn in Wakanda", hinting that he'll be sticking around for a while.
