SUPERHERO MOVIE BLACK PANTHER FEATURES AN AFRICAN KINGDOM.

Published

on

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded once again, this time to the borders of the fictional African state Wakanda. The movie focuses on its primary superhero, Black Panther.

The big budget film from Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios has an almost entirely black cast led by Chadwick Boseman and is directed by acclaimed African American director Ryan Coogler.

“I’m really nervous now because the work is done and now we’re just showing it and hoping people are into it. We tried to make the best film we could, the most honest film we could and go from there,” said Coogler at the premier.

Daniel Kaluuya, who was recently nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars for the groundbreaking horror ‘Get Out’ believes that ‘Black Panther’ has the same elements to break the boundaries of cinema.

“It’s going to break it as well. We’re doing what we want. It’s just going crazy. I’ve never seen an African superhero movie ever, I mean in the ilk of James Bond as well, in that kind of lane, so it’s exciting to see what happens next. I don’t know what happens next and that always excites me,” said Kaluuya.

He is the first actor of Ugandan origin to be nominated for the Oscars. His traditional Ugandan attire, kanzu at the movie premier both surprised and gave Ugandans a source of pride.

The film, which centers around a power struggle in Black Panther’s home, is reported to have already broken records – having more pre-sales of tickets than any other movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is expected to make as much as $120 million in its opening weekend.

It goes on release on February 16 in the United States. It has also been premiered in Asia.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.
