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

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther made an estimated $41 million this past weekend, pushing the superhero movie past $1 billion at the worldwide box office, according to Box Office Mojo.

He added: 'Ava DuVernay is someone who makes the impossible look easy. "I met her in 2013, but she's one of those people who you feel like you've always known", Coogler began.

The two directors are actually friends, and Coogler penned a letter to DuVernay to commemorate her latest film.

Duvernay, whose lack of nomination for Best Director Oscar for Selma in 2015 contributed to the #OscarsSoWhite movement, is the first African-American woman to direct a film with a budget of $100 million dollars.




A Wrinkle in Time sees Ava DuVernay directing a cast that includes Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, Levi Miller, Andre Holland and Deric McCabe. "She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality", he wrote.

Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time debuted at number two bringing in an estimated $33 million.

Given that she already has an established relationship with Disney through A Wrinkle in Time, and gave advice to J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: The Force Awakens with regards to the climactic showdown between Rey and Kylo Ren, the filmmaker would seem to be a flawless fit for the galaxy far, far away.

IN THIS ISSUE, Victoria Newton Ford writes about Ava DuVernay's forthcoming movie adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's bestselling fantasy novel A Wrinkle in Time. 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".
