“Black Panther” is still going strong, holding down the number slot once again in North America. The film has been out for more than a month and brought in another 27-million-dollars over the weekend for a total of more than 600-million-dollars in the U.S. and Canada. “Black Panther” is also closing in on just over a billion dollars in ticket sales worldwide. “Tomb Raider” placed second in its debut weekend with 24-million-dollars’ worth of tickets sold. The faith-based movie “I Can Only Imagine,” “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Love, Simon” rounded out the top five.
Ava DuVernay is getting ready to bring some fire to DC Comics!
She will direct a big-budget screen adaptation of The New Gods, a project created by comic book author Jack Kirby, Deadline reported. We report this is a big win, and DuVernay is doing her thang. The woke director has already become the first Black woman to helm a $100 million-plus live-action film with Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time. The time-travel fantasy has made $42.2 million in its first six days in North America, Variety reported. This film, coming up to bat after the super-successful Black Panther, is already on its way to becoming a box office heavyweight like Ryan Coogler‘s Marvel flick. And now, with DuVernay’s new Warner Bros. and DC Comics deal, other African-American directors will get their chance to knock the box office ball out the park.
African Americans are rising through the ranks and breaking major racial barriers in the military. On Monday, Maj. Gen. Gary M. Brito will make history as the first Black person to become the commander of the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning in Georgia, the Ledger-Inquirer reported. Prior to being appointed to the role, Brito served as the commanding general of the Joint Readiness Training Center in Fort Polk, Louisiana. In 2004, he was a lieutenant colonel with the Third Brigade at Fort Benning. He will be replacing Maj. Gen. Eric J. Wesley. His appointment is garnering attention because it will be the second post that Brito has commanded that was named after a Confederate general, which is sparking conversations about race, representation, and leadership in the military. “Hopefully we are at a point – and I think we have been at that point at Fort Benning for a long time – that we judge people based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin,” Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, a former Fort Benning assistant commander told the Ledger-Inquirer. “I am very happy to see Gen. Brito get that position. I am glad we are moving to a point where it’s a point of fact of his ethnicity. And people will look at that, more from a standpoint of identifying when they meet him, who he is and where he came from. He’s a product of what this Army for years has been working to produce: competent leaders capable to go anywhere and lead and do any job.” More African Americans are being put in leadership roles in the military space. Last year, 20-year-old Simone Askew made history when she became the first Black woman appointed to lead West Point cadets.
