Inclusion Riders

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: should inclusion riders be requirements for all Hollywood production companies?)

Frances McDormand’s Oscars speech raised Hollywood’s awareness of inclusion riders – contractual stipulations that basically demand racial and gender diversity for at least fifty percent of a project’s cast and crew. It’s only been a few weeks, but we’re already seeing companies adopt inclusion riders as their standard policy moving forward. That’s a good start in an industry which has been extremely slow (and has sometimes even refused) to react to social progress.

But as some companies actively embrace these changes, at least one major entertainment provider is shying away from them.

Black Panther reviews

The embargo for Black Panther reviews is up, and the praise is nearly universal for Marvel Studios’ latest film. Ryan Coogler‘s ambitious, expansive film with a majority-black cast is promising to be a cultural phenomenon, with early tracking suggesting Black Panther could break box office records. Anticipation is high for the comic book movie starring Chadwick Boseman as the titular hero, which has already outsold all other superhero movies in pre-sale tickets, and accumulated even more buzz with rapturous social media reactions to early screenings. Could the movie possibly live up to the hype and set the standard for more diverse blockbusters to follow?

Below, see what critics thought in our Black Panther reviews round-up.

Black Panther junket

Yesterday, I had the chance to attend Marvel Studios’ Black Panther junket in Beverly Hills. We’ve already featured one article from one of the interviews I conducted while I was there, and more are on the way, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some of the highlights from the press conference that featured all of the key cast members, producer Kevin Feige, and writer/director Ryan Coogler.

Traditionally, press conferences like these can feel pretty by-the-numbers. The questions from the assembled reporters tend to be boring things like “If you could play any other Marvel superhero, who would it be?” But this one was notable for the way Coogler and his cast spoke about the female perspective and impact on this film, and I thought what they said was worth sharing.
