STUDIO STILLA Wrinkle In Time is out now in the USA

A Wrinkle In Time

As Disney's second movie of 2018, following several weeks after the powerhouse that is Marvel's Black Panther, AWrinkle of Time has earned mixed reception, but it was unclear how the movie would perform commercially.

Calling the "Selma" helmer a "pioneer", Coogler also talked about DuVernays efforts to improve diversity on her sets, including her decision to hire all-female directors and women in important creative roles for season one of her OWN Network show "Queen Sugar", something she plans to continue in season two. Well, the movie got off to a decent start last night, making $1.3 million in Thursday previews.

In third place was new horror sequel "The Strangers: Prey at Night", from Aviron studios, which took in $10.4 million.

A Wrinkle In Time is out in the United Kingdom next Friday, March 16. And now, she's battling Black Panther, a movie which she originally turned down, with A Wrinkle in Time.

Given that she already has an established relationship with Disney through A Wrinkle in Time, and gave advice to J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: The Force Awakens with regards to the climactic showdown between Rey and Kylo Ren, the filmmaker would seem to be a ideal fit for the galaxy far, far away.
