Over the weekend filmmakers Ryan Coogler and Ava Duvernay made box office history, History was made when the two African American filmmakers had the films rank number 1 and 2 respectively among viewers.
Coogler’s “Black Panther” maintained its position at number 1 on the box office list, but Duvernay’s latest film, “A Wrinkle In Time” was a close second. “Black Panther” brought in another $44.1 Million at the box office and “A Wrinkle In Time” debuted with an impressive showing of $33.3 Million.
