Black Panther Teaser Trailer



The first teaser for Marvel Studios' Black Panther has landed and it certainly fuels curiosity. After an explosive entry into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War last year, things are looking good for T'Challa's first solo outing.


Directed by Creed's Ryan Coogler, the movie follows the events of Civil War. T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to Wakanda as king, but his reign is soon challenged by Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger, a Wakandan exile. Also involved - somehow - is Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), a smuggler interested in Wakanda's vast resources. In order to combat this threat, T'Challa will team up with CIA agent - and head of the Joint Counter Terrorism Center - Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) and the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces responsible for protecting the king.


The trailer doesn't give very much away. Everything looks great, Coogler and his team seem to have combined the styles of sleek Marvel tech and tribal Africa. We get a lesson on Wakanda from Ulysses Klaue, who we last saw in Age of Ultron supplying the titular robot with vibranium, a transaction that cost him more than he bargained for! He explains to Ross that Wakanda is not only a reclusive country, but how it puts up a front of being a third world country to protect what is said to be one of the most advanced countries on the planet. Something we catch a glimpse of when we see a ship flying over a beautiful cityscape. There's also a hint of what happens to those who try to take from Wakanda; they have to deal with the Black Panther. And it's certainly not a pleasant experience!


The villain, Erik Killmonger is seen fighting, and causing trouble throughout. He's also responsible for breaking Klaue out of custody. Michael B. Jordan certainly sports an interesting look in this latest role, kind of like if Prince were a Marvel villain. Ready to oppose him are the warriors of the Dora Milaje, T'Challas sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright) who's seen sporting some advanced weaponry and Zuri (Forest Whitaker), an elder statesman said to be T'Challa's link to his father T'Chaka. Coogler described Zuri as T'Challa's Obi Wan Kenobi.


I have to admit, with Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok still to come, this movie felt a long way off. But after seeing this intriguing first trailer, Black Panther is very much on the map.

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

I thought, Well that's enough. And why not go out with something that's very upbeat and positive?The director of The Old Man & the Gun, David Lowery (A Ghost Story) recently spoke with Empire Magazine about being the last m…
