Is this a positive thing and a huge step forward in race relations, or just mindless pandering to the masses by Tinseltown, trotted out just in time for MLK Day and Black History Month?

It's a lot of both.  A lot of pandering and a lot of legitimate trying to develop characters that have been either long forgotten or not considered much in the past.  It will depend who you ask.

Approaching midlife crisis

Rush Limbaugh just talked about this movie on his show yesterday... pretty much saying the same thing I did.  Brief history: The Black Panther was introduced as a supporting character in Marvel Comics way back in 1966, but didn't see his own title until a decade or so later.  The character enjoyed a sort of cult popularity for decades, perhaps because of the political upheaval of the time. However, Black Panther really didn't come into his own until recently, when he was introduced to the recent Avengers Assemble! series (which is where I mostly know the character from). He's the ruler of a small but mineral-rich African nation, and a metaphor for old-world isolationism trying to exist in a new world where networks have significantly shrunk the global market. He doesn't seem to quite "get" his Avenger teammates, which of late has included a reformed thief, a hip selfie-loving millennial, and a hot-headed little bossy-boots who often vies with him for team leadership (which doesn't sit too well with a king, taking orders from a woman).  Despite his misgivings and an attitude that can at times come off as cold and dismissive, Panther has proven himself a capable and respected member of the team.

Last week the top three movies were...

Fifty Shades Freed with $38m
Peter Rabbit with $25m
The 15:17 To Paris with $12.5m

This weekend should see a record posting with Blank Panther on all it's hype.

I'm wondering if the espionage film, "Red Sparrow" will be any good?  I have my eye on that.

Black Panther is doing well in week two.  I wonder if 2018 will be a bounce back year for the movie industry which had a horrible low last year?

I think 2018 will be a better year over 2017.  I guess we will see if I eat those words or not.

A better year for film or just in general?

Both!  In general 2017 was a bad year for movies.  Lots of poor films, bad performances at the box office, and things got too political.  Hollywood had a record low performing year.

Two years in a row.  2016 was a horrible year for film.  2017 was considerably worse.

I am not sure how 2018 is predicted to be, but based on the near future of films I have seen, nothing looks too promising to bring back up the movie industry.  Some are worried given how "slow" Sundance Film Festival was.

Sure there will be a few hits, but nothing continual.

With avengers 3 on the horizon and deadpool 2, I assume at least those will do well. They've been looked forward to for quite some time

I think the Avengers 3 will do much worse at the box office then they expect.  It will be a hit still, but won't perform as good as the previous 2.  Deadpool 2 on the other hand will outperform it's first film, whether it is a better movie or not.

I think that seems reasonable.

Looks like we may be having a box office soft ball in the film, "Red Sparrow."

It has an average 6/10 rating and has made only $43.5 million.   Jennifer Lawrence stars in the film.  The film cost $70 million to make.  It will pass it's $70 million goal, but I am sure they were hoping for a bigger opening week.

2018 has not had an official BOX OFFICE BOMB yet.  2017 had 4 major bombs and several smaller ones including, "Blade Runner 2049," and, "The Mummy."

Personally I think the remake of Overboard coming out later this year will bomb.
