Another Badass "Black Panther" Trailer!

4 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Okay guys, hear me out: Marvel is getting good again? Aside from business-as-usual as the Avengers arc closes, the superhero house will give us Cate Blanchett in drag for Thor, Pfeiffer in the Ant-Man sequel, and of course the most eagerly anticipated: Ryan Coogler's Black Panther.

Excuse me while I pick my eyeballs off of the floor. The goods on what Coogler has created keep getting better and better, and a brand new trailer has yours truly at a fever pitch. The amount of set pieces and plot threads already at play in this trailer suggest that it might be another bloated actioner, but there are genuine thrills everywhere, all the more rapturous for the film's existence in our current political atmosphere. Chadwick Boseman may be our star, but its most exciting element might be its celebration of black women - let's all geek out over Danai Gurira's Okoye. »

‘Black Panther’: 6 Key Shots From Our Newest Look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Next Big Adventure

15 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe chips away at its long-gestating Phase Three, the world of crime-fighting superheroes is getting smaller — to bring those heroes together for whatever mayhem will unspool in the final two Avengers movies — but it’s still more crowded than ever, thanks to movies like “Captain Marvel” and “Black Panther,” which introduce key new heroes and their own individual stories.

Next up, the Ryan Coogler-directed “Black Panther,” which brings back Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, who we first met in “Captain America: Civil War,” now dealing with his own homegrown threats. Coogler, a Sundance breakout with “Fruitvale” who landed Sylvester Stallone an Oscar nomination with “Creed,” seems to have advanced to the Marvel big leagues with ease.

The film picks up post-“Civil War” and sees the prince returning to his home, the isolationist (and totally fictional) African country Wakanda, where a number of »

Full Trailer for Ryan Coogler's 'Black Panther' with Chadwick Boseman

15 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"My son, it is your time. You get to decide what kind of King you are going to be." Disney has revealed the full-length official trailer for Marvel's Black Panther movie, directed by the talented filmmaker Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station, Creed), and it looks awesome. The story follows King T'Challa, once again played by Chadwick Boseman, who goes back to his African nation of Wakanda after the events of Civil War. There he encounters new enemies that want to challenge his seat on the throne, and destroy Wakanda. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, Winston Duke, and Sterling K. Brown. This looks damn good. Yes it looks like another Marvel movie, but I dig the Coogler's style and boldness, seems a bit more unique than others. Check it out. »

New Black Panther trailer classified, expected to arrive this month

14 October 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a little over a week away from the start of Thor: Ragnarok’s international roll out, and it seems we can also expect to get a glimpse at Marvel’s next superhero blockbuster this month, with a new trailer for February’s Black Panther expected to arrive in October.

Trailer Track is reporting that the British Board of Film Classification has rated a new trailer for the Ryan Coogler-directed film, which has been passed with a 12A certificate and will run for 2 minutes and 18 seconds. According to the site, this may be the same trailer that was shown to fans at the San Diego Comic-Con International this past July.

Thor: Ragnarok is set to open in the UK on October 24th, and presumably the Black Panther trailer will be attached to it in cinemas, meaning we should probably expect it to debut online in the days leading up to its release. »

The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira Explains Her Season 4 Killing Spree

13 October 2017 2:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having a job that involves you pretending to kill zombies all day sounds like a dream come true, so it’s nice to see that Danai Gurira, aka The Walking Dead‘s Michonne enjoys doing her job just as much as we enjoy watching her.

In fact, we got a glimpse into her enthusiasm in this recent interview, where the actress was asked what her favorite walker kill was. She immediately singles out season 4, episode 9, “After.” In this outing, Michonne comes to a kind of epiphany about her purpose in life – namely, carving up walkers with a machete.

Originally, she was going to understand this by slaughtering just 10 of them (which was all the show had budgeted for for the scene). But when she got into the moment she just… kept going. She steamed past 10, then 12, then 16, until she was surrounded by the twitching corpses of 24 walkers.
