Lupita Nyong’o Interview

As a recurring player in the Star Wars movies, Lupita Nyong’o is no stranger to geeky fandom. Apparently, though, Black Panther is on another level entirety. When asked which experience has been more intense, she doesn’t even hesitate – it’s Black Panther.

She’s seen the #BlackPantherSoLit hashtag and the swell of excitement that follows every new announcement. And speaking to us on set last year, she made it clear she’s working hard to live up to the hype, filling us in on the intense training and serious thought that’s gone into becoming the character of Nakia.

She also dropped a few spare hints about Nakia’s dilemma in the film, and the movie’s understanding of its female characters – though she stopped short of revealing too much about the relationships within the movie.

Black Panther Featurette - Danai Gurira as Okoye

Black Panther doesn’t hit theaters for a little over a month, but the movie is already breaking records by selling more advance tickets in its first day of sales than any other Marvel Cinematic Universe title that came before it. This looks like it will be an even bigger movie than some have speculated, and the more footage we see from Chadwick Boseman‘s first solo big screen outing as the superhero, the cooler it looks.

A new Black Panther featurette has arrived online, this time focusing on two specific warriors of Wakanda. There’s Okoye, played by The Walking Dead star Danai Guriria (seen above), and Nakia, played by 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong’o. The featurette not only provides some key details about each of their characters, but shows them kicking ass in the secretive African stronghold of Wakanda. Read More »

Charlie's Angels reboot

Charlie’s Angels may be getting a punk-pop makeover. Elizabeth Banks‘ upcoming reboot of the action-comedy is reportedly eyeing indie favorite Kristen Stewart as well as Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o for the lead roles.

The action series already received a campy modern reboot in the early 2000s with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu donning the wings, but it may be time for some new stars to take on the mantle first originated by Farrah Fawcett and her glorious feathered hair. Hopefully now set to a soundtrack of grungey indie rock or the whistling of a melancholic wind through drapes — whatever Kristen Stewart listens to.

maz kanata in the last jedi

You may need Maz Kanata’s special glasses to get a glimpse the former smuggler’s role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
