How Much A Wrinkle In Time Made Opening Night

How Much A Wrinkle In Time Made Opening Night

Ryan Coogler may be experiencing some sweet success with the box office hit Black Panther, but that has not stopped him from writing the cutest open letter to his friend Ava DuVernay.

He called her "someone who makes the impossible look easy". Its why I feel privileged to call her my big sister.

'Ava is a pioneer. "I met her in 2013, but she's one of those people who you feel like you've always known", Coogler began.

Black Panther, however, has swiftly become the highest-grossing film of the year both in the U.S. and internationally, outstripping its nearest rival, Fifty Shades Freed, by a multiple of five. In his essay, Coogler shouted out the 13th director's decision to mandate "the use of female directors and key creatives a full two years before the great Frances McDormand shared with the world what an inclusion ride was".




For the first time ever, films directed by African-Americans have topped the U.S. box office.

The Black Panther director recalls how DuVernay, a publicist turned director, was "already one of [his] heroes" before he met her, given that he admired her 2010 and 2012 films I Will Follow and Middle of Nowhere. As Disney's second movie of 2018, following several weeks after the powerhouse that is Marvel's Black Panther, AWrinkle of Time has earned mixed reception, but it was unclear how the movie would perform commercially. "She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality", he wrote.

After more than five decades of being appreciated as a classic of children's literature, and 15 years after a TV movie version failed to impress, A Wrinkle in Time has finally received the big screen treatment, with director Ava DuVernay's adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's book now playing in theaters. She's quickly become someone to watch in Hollywood, and she's just released her newest film, A Wrinkle in Time, a major Disney property that is essentially about a "little black girl with glasses".
