A special from the Marvel Cinematic universe, Black Panther is one of the highest grossing movies of all time hitting a total of $1.23 billion dollars. It’s also the first ever dedicated black super hero movie from Marvel.

Though there are appearances in the MCU with heroes like Luke Cage, War Machine, Storm, Miles Morales and Nick Fury, Black Panther features the full African taste and culture ever seen on TV. Black Panther 2 will be released by May 2022.

Proud Mary

Taraji P Henson is the point of focus in this hit assassination spin off after getting bouts of remorse from taking the life of a target who happens to have a son. Though there’s been some controversial bad faith in the movie by the producers that’s their deal. Proud Mary is good old fashioned assassin lady classic.



Directed by Deon Taylor, Traffik is a thriller about the dangers of sex trafficking. When the couple stops to refuel at a gas station, they get ambushed and trailed by a gang of vicious bike-men. It’s a seemingly couple romance thriller of the sorts if you consider couples being hunted in the dark this one is for you.

Den of Thieves
