‘Black Panther’ has the best Marvel supervillain ever. Yes, even better than Loki.

Excited for Black Panther? So are we. Which is why we’re rolling out obsessive coverage with Black Panther Week.

Spoilers ahead for Black Panther.  

Black Panther just pulled off a Marvel Cinematic Universe first: A supervillain worth rooting for.

Sure, other MCU baddies have been charming (hello, Hela) or surprising (hi, Mandarin) or sympathetic (we see you, Loki). A couple of them have even made good points – Zemo and Vulture’s grievances felt legitimate, even if their methods of rectifying them did not.

But Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger is all of those things, and something more besides. It’s a truism that every villain sees themselves as the hero in their own story; Killmonger is the first time this has actually felt true in a MCU movie.  Read more…

Shuri from ‘Black Panther’ may be a princess, but she’s queen of our hearts

It’s hard to say who among the incredible cast of characters in Black Panther reigns supreme. But if you ask this writer, there’s be no question: Shuri, T’Challa’s 16-year-old sister and badass princess of Wakanda, deserves to be crowned queen of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Aside from her sheer show-stealing cool factor, Shuri is the brilliant inventor ensuring Wakanda remains the most advanced nation in the world. She equips her brother and their entire people with the cutting-edge vibranium technology, armor, and weaponry that enables them to kick such serious ass – like in that fantastic Busan chase scene.  Read more…

Black imaginary worlds are inherently political. That’s why we need ‘Black Panther’ and Wakanda

Excited for Black Panther? So are we. Which is why we’re rolling out obsessive coverage with Black Panther Week.

As Black Panther has broken records ahead of its wide release, with critics and fans applauding everything from the casting and performances to the story and visuals, the very concept of Wakanda itself has also been elevated to its own status of celebrity. 

For the past few months, fans on social media have been sharing their wishes to go to Wakanda, with some declaring themselves Wakandans. It’s fitting that the wide release of Black Panther falls within Black History Month; Wakanda has been built up as a home for black excellence, a place born from and characterized by blackness.  Read more…

A theater played ‘Fifty Shades’ instead of ‘Black Panther’ and what a hilarious nightmare

There are two big blockbusters out this month: You might have heard about Black Panther — the critically acclaimed Marvel film about black superheroes in the fictional land of Wakanda. The other is Fifty Shades Freed, a widely criticized installment about two lovers in Seattle. 

Clearly, two very different movies.

So when the Atlantic Station theater in Atlanta accidentally started playing Fifty Shades Freed to an audience that was expecting to be transported to Wakanda, things got hilarious.

Twitter user @ChefWaites shared video footage from within Atlantic Station of the unfortunate mixup, and you can hear people in the background laughing incredulously at the mistake. “It’s the opposite movie!,” one moviegoer exclaims.  Read more…

Here’s your first sweet teaser for the new TV sequel to ‘The Karate Kid’

It’s been a solid 34 years since Daniel and Johnny faced off against each other at the All-Valley Karate Tournament, but now it looks like history is about to repeat itself.

SEE ALSO: What’s coming to Hulu in January 2018

Yep: Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, who starred in the original 1984 film The Karate Kid, are coming back for an upcoming series — Cobra Kai — that will act as a sequel to the original. And we now have our first bit of teaser footage:

So the TL;DW version of that seems to be that Daniel and Johnny — despite sort of overcoming their mutual dislike at the end of The Karate Kid — are now back to hating each other again. Read more…

Disneyland and Disney World ticket prices went up, not that we’re surprised

It’s super expensive to feel like a kid again. 

Disney vacations aren’t exactly cheap, but this weekend they got a bit more expensive as Disney raised the prices of tickets for their Disneyland park in California and Walt Disney World in Florida. 

For a family of four, on a peak day, one day will cost you over $500.

Single-day, single-park admission on peak days in Florida has gone up to $129, kids between the ages of 3 and 9 are now $123.

The price varies depending on the day (with peak being the most expensive, regular being mid-tier, and value being the cheapest; the dates of these times can be found on Disney’s website), but all tickets have increased in price, including multi-day and annual passes.  Read more…
