It’s been five years since we’ve seen anything from Academy Award-winning Steve McQueen. But the director is now back and with fearless female cast. In Widows, Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, and Cynthia Ervio play a group of women who have suffered the loss of their husbands. The only problem is, they have secrets to hide, leaving these widows with a debt owed to a dangerous group of people.

Black Panther is the 18th Marvel Studios film to be released. Now just a few months after its initial release, it is coming home on Blu-ray and digital.
Director Ryan Coogler presents audiences with a new kind of superhero film. By weaving in social issues – like culture, identity, and representation – that affect us today, he turns what would have been an ordinary comic book movie into an extraordinary crowning achievement. It’s certainly not a risky film, but one that needed to be made. For there is a superhero in everyone, and it’s high time that we get to see more representation on the big screen. Check out my review of Black Panther on 4K below.
Black Panther is easily one of the best Marvel Studios films to come out in recent years. And I am not just saying that because it is the most recent film to be released by the studio. The way it addresses social issues, representation, identity, and feminism and still maintains its superhero feel is incredible.
Now that Marvel is turning its attention to Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is talking about Black Panther‘s success. Check out what he had to say about it, the chances for a sequel and possible spinoffs, and more below.
Chadwick Boseman, the star of Marvel’s latest hit Black Panther, teamed up with Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show to surprise some fans of the movie.
The fans were asked to record messages to Boseman sharing what he and the movie have meant to them, unaware that the actor was standing just a few feet away about to give them a memory they’ll never forget.

One thing I forgot to mention in my review of Marvel’ Black Panther – something I regret not putting in – is the fact that the music is an excellent complement to the superhero film. Produced by Kendrick Lamar, the soundtrack is easily one of the most anticipated Marvel soundtracks to date. Probably because it’s one of the few that is worthwhile.
So if you want to take a listen, then I suggest you check out the Spotify embed here below for clips; the full soundtrack is streaming through the Spotify app.
