'Black Panther' Crosses $1 Billion at Global Box Office

Black Panther is seeing its first competition at the box office since it opened with Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time and Coogler has written a tribute to the female director who he affectionately calls his big sister. I met her in 2013, but she's one of those people who you feel like you've always known. She makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality.

The Black Panther director recalls how DuVernay, a publicist turned director, was "already one of [his] heroes" before he met her, given that he admired her 2010 and 2012 films I Will Follow and Middle of Nowhere.

Today the talented director checked into The Breakfast Club to talk about getting into the game at a "late" age, getting Sade to cut a song for the soundtrack to A Wrinkle In Time, and why she passed on directing Black Panther. Ava is inclusion, equity and representation.

Ava opened A Wrinkle in Time in the United States yesterday, and Ryan penned an "ode" to the director of the film starring Oprah Winfrey, calling her a "pioneer" for "inclusion, equity and representation".

Drew Brees is now officially available
Monday is when teams officially can tamper with free agents, and Wednesday is when players officially can sign contracts. According to Tom Pelissero of The NFL Network , the Minnesota Vikings have already placed a call to the 39-year-old.

Ava is the past, present and future.

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. Ava, the warrior, weathered that loss while making "13th" to show everyone with a Netflix subscription that American slavery never ended - it had only morphed.

Coogler praised DuVernay for championing the rights of others, hiring women filmmakers to direct her hit show Queen Sugar and for being loving and naturing against all odds.

He also referred to the hidden message found within "A Wrinkle in Time" that told the story of "a little black girl with glasses" who refused to accept that her father was lost. The main character in the film, Meg, uses her love, her hope and her kickass skills as a scientist to bring him back, and maybe she saves the universe along the way.
