The Wait Is Over – It’s Now Hours To The Black Panther Premiere!

Long awaited Afrocentric superhero blockbuster Black Panther opens in South Africa on Friday!

 … MEOW! 

BLACK PANTHER KICKS OFF IN CINEMAS THIS FRIDAY 

ezgif.com-resize (1)

After the hectic week we’ve had in the country, what with the emotionally exhausting political hellscape that ended with former President Jacob Zuma’s resignation on Wednesday, it’s fair to say we deserve a big break. No, seriously…

Fortunately, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel… and it’s epic!

After months of waiting (and getting those outfits you’ve been promising ready, we hope) for what is undoubtedly the biggest black hero blockbuster ever created, Black Panther finally premieres in cinemas on Friday, February 16th!

You can catch the movie at Ster Kinekor theatres nationwide and see the mind-blowing visuals in IMAX, D-BOX, Cinema Prestige, 3D and 2D.

Starring amongst others Lupita N’yongo, Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett, the Marvel Studios production, Black Panther has already broken a few records as global hype peaks ahead of the debut. Set for a massive box office debut, the movie’s recently released soundtrack album also did in amplifying the hype.

The movie’s latest trailer is a beautiful showcase of a futuristic/throwback/Afrocentric and badass experience, a portrait of black awesomeness we don’t see every day in the cinema.

Black Panther South Africa

The film follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king…

But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life

Vatiswa Ndara vs The Fergusons – SA’s Big TV War

Things are pretty serious right now.

Published

on

Vatiswa Ndara’s open letter to the incumbent Minister of Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa, has not only set in motion a series of events which have dominated recent headlines – including reports of legal action against her by her bosses.

It has also started a movement amongst actors.

Since the letter came out, a number of actors have also come forward in her support. This despite the said threat of blackballing for those who speak publicly about a reality far removed from the glamorous perceptions most hold about the local television and film production industry.

Some, such as Keke Mphuthi, have since come out to make shocking claims about how they’ve been treated by production companies.

It all started when the veteran actress detailed her grievance in a letter lengthy directed at the Minister.

In it, Vatiswa announced that she would not be proceeding with her role as NomaRussia on the third season of popular Mzansi Magic drama series, Igazi.

Her departure from the show follows strife between her and Ferguson Films, who refused to match her R1 million charge for her service.

According to the letter, the production company made a final offer of R110 000 for the 13 part series, which would be filmed over a five-week period.

Further to quitting the show, Vatiswa says she is risking her livelihood by coming forward to fight the system.

“This particular interaction with Ferguson Films has made me evaluate my own being and sustenance within the industry”, she jotted, “but also the plight of my fellow actors, crew and other creative contributors…”

The letter address several issues, including alleged unfair contractual agreements and expectations, poor renumeration and unfair treatment by producers.

Several actors have come forth to stand with the actress. Rami Chuene, who currently stars on The Queen, a Ferguson Films production, expressed her unreserved support for Ndara, who’s acts were also lauded by the likes of Bonnie Mbuli and Florence Masebe.

According to EWN, Vatiswa has yet to receive notification of the reported legal action said to have been undertaken by Connie and Shona Ferguson.

Cassper Nyovest Aims To Fill Up Royal Bafokeng Stadium

All roads lead to Rustenburg

Published

on

After weeks of mounting anticipation from fans, Cassper Nyovest on Monday thrilled Tsibipians with the announcement that the Royal Bafokeng stadium will be the next stop for his annual ‘Fill Up’ movement.

The concert, which is slated for December 15th, also marks Cassper’s return to his roots in North West, where he was born and raised.

The Move for Me hitmaker made the announcement on a clip on his social platforms. “There’s a rumour going around… yes, I’m gay!”, he joked, hitting back at the random rumour that he’s secretly dating Somizi. “Gay means cheerful, gay also means happy… happy to announce that this year’s ‘Fill Up’ is going to Rustenburg”

Royal Bafokeng stadium will be the 5th one in his growing list of sold out arenas. Cassper has previously filled up FNB Stadium, Orlando Stadium, The Dome – where it all began, as well as Moses Mabhida stadium.

This will also be the second time he’s holding the concert outside of Gauteng following his concert at Moses Mabhida stadium, Durban, in December 2018.

Tickets are available at Webtickets.
