Ryan Coogler: Artist Of The Week

June 13, 2017 | D&L

This week’s performing arts artist is none other than American film director and screenwriter, Ryan Coogler.

If you haven’t seen the buzz surrounding his latest piece of work, Marvel’s Black Panther, then where have you been? The highly anticipated Marvel movie is the next to be hitting theatres in February 2018 and it’s the first to be fronted by a black male lead as well as an incredibly talented black cast.

If you didn’t know, Coogler is certainly one who knows his craft as his first feature film, Fruitvale Station, won two big awards; the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for U.S dramatic film at Sundance Film Festival 2013.

Also, if you are amongst the number of fans who loved the movie Creed, guess who wrote and directed that too? He really knows the right tools and has the right skills to bring a movie to life.

So, are you ready for your next Coogler fix?

The plot has developed from Captain America: Civil War, where T’Challa was first introduced as the Prince of Wakanda, the African nation.

Now, the story continues…

“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king.

“But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as King – and Black Panther – is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.”

The cast includes stars such as Lupita Nyong’o, Micheal B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman, Danai Gurira and more.

This is going to be amazing!

Release date is February 16th 2018.
