  • Black Panther Director Writes Emotional Thank You To Fans

The entire world is buzzing about Black Panther, and now the film's director, Ryan Coogler, has responded to the excitement by thanking fans in a touching message. In related news, Black Panther's box office now stands at $263 million domestically and $462.2 million worldwide through Tuesday. Since I hadn't heard anything about them being involved in the film, I made a decision to use some of my precious time to find out why they got a thank you and I also asked Coogler about editing next to director Ava DuVernay (she was editing A Wrinkle in Time in the same location) and how long was his first cut of the film. He goes on to thank the press for writing about the film, and young people who "came out with their parents, with their mentors, and with their friends". It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film-but to see people of all backgrounds wearing clothing that celebrates their heritage, taking pictures next to our poster with their friends and family, and sometimes dancing in the lobbies of theatres-often moved me and my wife to tears. Thank you for giving our team of filmmakers the greatest gift: "The opportunity to share this film, that we poured our hearts and souls into, with you". When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war. It's soundtrack, curated by Kendrick Lamar, debuted at number one over the weekend. The movie generated the biggest Monday for ticket sales ever.

Will Smith says he was nearly brought to tears watching the film and we can relate.

Donald Glover helped to "punch up" some jokes in the screenplay for Marvel's Black Panther.
