Check Out the First Look at ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ and More Photos and Details from ‘Black Panther’

Written by admin

Comic-Con is a week away, but Entertainment Weekly has started the party early with a new double issue preview of the event. Inside the magazine, and also shared online, are tons of new images from such highly fan-ticipated movies as Marvel’s Black Panther and Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time. The latter is actually our first official look at the Madeleine L’Engle adaptation.

Check that and more out below. 

A Wrinkle in Time 

There is a lot to be excited about with DuVernay’s first big blockbuster, but the latest reason is our first glimpses at Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon as the movie’s disguised extraterrestrial trio, respectively Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit — DuVernay calls them “three Mrs. Doubtfires.” Also, there are some shots of Chris Pine as Dr. Alex Murry, missing father of young protagonists Meg and Charles Wallace. 

In an interview accompanying the images, DuVernay talks of the importance of the movie’s inclusive representation through casting, from the African-American newcomer starring as Meg to the three Mrs. Ws. “My whole process with this film was, what if?” she says. “With these women, I wondered, could we make them women of different ages, body types, races? Could we bring in culture, bring in history in their costumes? And in the women themselves, could we just reflect a fuller breadth of femininity?” 

See a few more photos at EW. See the movie on March 9, 2018.

Black Panther 

In addition to holding fort on the cover of EW’s new issue, the next big MCU spin-off is represented with 20 more new photos, including looks at Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as his adversary Erik Killmonger, Forest Whitaker as his religious guide, Zuri, and Angela Bassett as his mother, Ramonda. There’s a lot of diversity on display here, similar to Wrinkle, while white actors Andy Serkis and Martin Freeman also show up in the album. 

Along with detailed captions and plot info, EW got some extra chatter from Boseman in an interview where he compares Black Panther to James Bond and says he’s more politician than superhero, with relevance. “Yeah, he’s not Donald Trump!” he exclaims. It’s funny watching the campaign because we were working on this before the campaign started, in terms of the prep. Watching how that ended, watching Obama leave office, and watching Trump take over … There are definite parallels there that you pull from.”

See the rest at EW and check out the first trailer for Black Panther if you haven’t already below. See it in theaters February 16, 2018.
