Black Panther is playing now in theaters everywhere.
It’s been a great creative period for Daniel Kaluuya thanks to the critical acclaim that was heaped on the horror thriller Get Out. That role will undoubtedly open even more doors for the talented actor, and in Black Panther he plays W’Kabi, T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) closest friend who has his own vision on how Wakanda should be run.
Kaluuya had nothing but praise for Black Panther filmmaker Ryan Coogler. “He knows himself, he knows what he’s about,” said Kaluuya. “He spots little things. He’s very emotionally detailed and just seeing him just navigate this job – it’s breaking new ground. Growth hurts and to see him go through this is just really inspiring.”

Black Panther, co-starring Lupita N’yongo and Martin Freeman, is now playing nationwide.
One of cinema’s most successful collaborations is between filmmaker Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan. Their previous films Fruitvale Station and Creed were critical successes, and now the duo are receiving tons of praises for their work in Black Panther. It’s a partnership that is akin to Martin Scorsese’s early collaborations with Robert De Niro, and hopefully Black Panther is just another step in a long and successful union.
“We continue to grow,” said Jordan who plays villain Erik Kilmonger in the film. “We’re growing together. We raise the bar – we try to one each project that we do. I’m forever impressed by his talent and ability. We have a connection that can’t be broken.”
