Michael B. Jordan Vows To Live With “Grace, Courage, & No Regrets” In Tribute To Chadwick Boseman
When “Black Panther” was released in 2018, critics were raving about the film’s acting and for its incredible use of Michael B. Jordan as the main villain, Erik Killmonger. There were some, at the time, that even wondered if Jordan’s performance overshadowed that of Chadwick Boseman. However, in the years that have passed and with Boseman appearing in two ‘Avengers’ films, it’s clear that the character of T’Challa remains the iconic piece to the “Black Panther” puzzle.

Whoopi Goldberg Urges Disney World to Build Wakanda Park in Memory of Chadwick Boseman

Whoopi Goldberg Urges Disney World to Build Wakanda Park in Memory of Chadwick Boseman
Sections of Disneyland and Disney World are devoted to mega-franchises such as “Star Wars” (Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios) and “Avatar” (Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom), but what if the same were true for “Black Panther” and the fictional nation of Wakanda? That’s the idea Whoopi Goldberg is putting forward following the tragic passing of “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman. Goldberg has taken to social media to urge Disney Parks to construct a Wakanda section in memory of Boseman and his acting legacy at either Disneyland or Disney World.

“Dear people in charge of building New experiences [at] Disneyland and World, we don’t really need another Frozen land but what we could use is [Wakanda],” Goldberg posted to her Twitter account. “Please Disney World [and] Disneyland, Please build in Chadwick Boseman’s name Wakanda.”

Considering what a global phenomenon “Black Panther” became upon its 2018 theatrical release,

The funky gold medallists: 'krip-hop' stars soundtrack Paralympics story

The funky gold medallists: 'krip-hop' stars soundtrack Paralympics story
Rising Phoenix, a new film telling the Paralympics story, features disabled rappers on its soundtrack. They explain why they feel cerebral palsy and other conditions are their superpowers

‘Biggie made being a big guy cool,” says George Doman. “I want to make being disabled cool. I don’t see why we can’t. Honestly? On this new song, we sound like superheroes. It’s like we deserve our own Marvel movie.”

California resident Doman, 37, has been rapping under the name Georgetragic since the dawn of the century, and in 2007 had a track on an album released with the PlayStation game God of War II. But the new song he refers to represents his best chance yet of reaching a mass audience. He takes the first verse in a collaboration with two other disabled rappers on the title track for the documentary Rising Phoenix, a film by directors Ian Bonh?te and Peter Ettedgui,

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in September 2020
After a quiet summer punctuated with a handful of culture-shaking hits, Netflix is ramping up its original content as we roll into the fall. The result is the most unusual, diverse, and even controversial slate the streamer has rolled out all year. Charlie Kaufman’s mind-bending and extraordinary “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” has to be at the top of the list, but a handful of other must-see movies will be vying for your attention, from well-vetted festival standouts like “Cuties” (recently the target of an uninformed online smear campaign) to vital documentaries like Sophia Nahli Allison’s “Love Song for Latasha” (about the 15-year-old Black girl whose murder sparked the L.A. Riots), and unknown quantities like Antonio Campos’ star-studded Southern gothic “The Devil All the Time” and the Millie Bobby Brown detective comedy “Enola Holmes.” This month’s library titles include recent favorites like Paul Dano’s “Wildlife

Villeneuve Expands Lady Jessica Role in ‘Dune’ to Make Her More Than ‘an Expensive Extra’

Villeneuve Expands Lady Jessica Role in ‘Dune’ to Make Her More Than ‘an Expensive Extra’
Rebecca Ferguson is no stranger to blockbuster filmmaking thanks to her ongoing role as Ilsa Faust in Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible” series, and the actress is set to get a second studio franchise later this year with Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” adaptation. Ferguson stars in the film as Lady Jessica, mother to the protagonist Paul Atreides (played in the film by Timothée Chalamet). In Frank Herbert’s novel, Lady Jessica’s role is primarily that of a mother and supportive figure. Villeneuve was keen to expand the role.

“I didn’t want Lady Jessica to be an expensive extra,” Villeneuve tells Empire magazine in a new interview. “Something I deeply love in the book is that there was a strong balance between the masculine power and feminine power.”

To lean more strongly into the feminine power of the book, Villeneuve worked with his screenwriters Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts
