The opening salvo of Avengers: Infinity War has been huge — the highest grossing opening weekend box office of all time. Raising the question: how long will Marvel dominate the comic book film world?
Augmented reality gaming and content is coming to NCM theaters just in time for the 2018 blockbuster film season.
This weekend belongs, unqestionably, to Black Panther. That being said, many people don’t recall (or maybe never knew) Wesley Snipes tried to bring the iconic comic book character to the big screen two decades ago. Things fell through and Snipes ended up bringing Blade to life instead in 1998.
Blade, of course, marks the beginning of films based on comic books (despite the fact that Snipes was apparently unaware Blade came from the world of comic books). The black vampire who did marshal arts (and wore a cool black leather coat like Shaft) stood alone as the Marvel Cinematic Universe exploded until this weekend when Black Panther has taken unapologetically and unequivicably taken over the box office. Fortunately, Black Panther is unlikely to be the opposite bookend from Blade but the start of something even more special.
