Blank Panther 2: Wakanda Forever Cast Arrive At European Premiere



Blank Panther 2: Wakanda Forever Cast Arrive At European Premiere

The cast of Blank Panther: Wakanda Forever have arrived at the film’s European premiere in London’s Leicester Square.

Stars including Michaela Coel, Danai Gurira and Lupita Nyong’o attended the red carpet for the hugely anticipated sequel to the superhero film.

The 2018 release of Black Panther is one of the most profitable movies of all time.

The Marvel Studios production made more than £1bn ($1.1bn) at the box office.

It was the first superhero film to receive an Oscar nomination for best picture. In total it was nominated seven times, winning three for original score, costume design and production design.

The franchise has been praised for its strong portrayal of black characters.

Speaking to the BBC’s Steffan Powell at the film’s premiere, Coel said: “The feeling it gives me, as a woman of colour, to see my story reflected back still gives me a rush of exhilaration to be seen.

“This cast give me a lot of confidence, I feel proud to be among them.”

Returning actress Danai Gurira, who plays Okoye, said she hoped Black Panther “paves the way” for other franchisees to cast strong black female leads.

She described filming as an “intense process” following the death of actor Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020 from colon cancer.

Director Ryan Coogler came up with a plot that could reflect the 43-year-old’s death which Lupita Nyong’o said would “really resonate with people”.

“Respecting Chadwick and what he started us off is the way forward,” Nyong’o told BBC News. “Ryan was so smart to embrace the loss and make this film about what we do when we lose somebody because we all experience it at one point.

“The honesty with it will surprise people and the fact you can do that without compromising on the fun, and the spectacle, is a feat and I’m really proud.”

The first film starred Boseman as the crime-fighting ruler of Wakanda, a fictional African nation with the most advanced technology on earth.

More than 170 million viewers watched the trailer for its follow-up, Wakanda Forever, in the first 24 hours after its release.

Last week Rihanna released her first single in six years which is taken from the soundtrack of the new film.

Coogler said Rihanna’s involvement in the project was to honour Boseman.

“Honestly, I think it was Chad,” he said. “A lot of improbable things needed to happen for it to come through and Rihanna was very clear that she did that for him.”

Other celebrities at the premiere included Stormzy, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Maya Jama.

The Crown Season 5 Release Date, Cast and Everything You Need To Know



The Crown Season 5 Release Date, Cast and Everything You Need To Know

The Crown is an excellent Netflix Original show, loosely based on the real-world events following the political rivalries and romances of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, as well as events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Brilliantly dramatised of course, to make for a great watch.

Seasons 1 to 4 have given us all a history lesson from the 1940s to the 1980s, and after Margaret Thatcher and Lady Diana Spencer both debuted in season 4, all eyes are on season 5 and which events we will see next.

Here’s everything you need to know about season 5 of The Crown, including who has been cast, when it was released and what we can expect.

The Crown season 5 release date: When is it out?

Netflix released season five of The Crown on 9 November 2022. Season 4 of The Crown arrived on Netflix in November 2020, so we’ve been waiting two years.

Season 3 appeared two years after season 2 of The Crown though, along with the new cast, so it’s not surprising season 5 and its new cast have arrived when they have.

How and where to watch The Crown season 5

Season 5 of The Crown is only available to watch on Netflix. 

The show is a Netflix Original, like Bridgerton, so you if you want to watch it, then you’ll need to be subscribed to Netflix.

How many episodes will there be in The Crown season 5?

There are 10 episodes in The Crown season 5. 

Seasons 1 to 4 all have 10 episodes, resulting in a total of 40 episodes prior to season 5 being released, so it’s unsurprising season 5 stuck to the same format, especially as a season 6 is planned.

What is expected to happen in The Crown season 5?

The Crown season 5 will carry on from where season 4 left off, which is the latter part of 1990. It is expected that season 5 will therefore cover the 1990s, though it is not totally confirmed which exact events will be given airtime or what showrunner Peter Morgan will focus on.

There’s quite a few to choose from though, including the fire at Windsor castle in 1992, the Queen’s 40th anniversary of her accession to the throne and the breakdown of several of her children’s marriages. All of those appear to be present based on the first full trailer for the show, which you can watch at the top of the page.

There’s also Princess Diana in the second half of the decade. Not only her interview with journalist Martin Bashir, but also her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996 and her tragic death in 1997. The season will cover the death, but Netflix told The Sun: “The exact moment of the crash impact will not be shown”.
