"She was already one of my heroes, and that was before she took one of the most sought-after scripts in Hollywood and turned it into the best film about Dr. Martin Luther King that anyone will ever make", he wrote.
Coogler then called DuVernay's new film A Wrinkle in Time "beautiful", writing, "I watched closely from across the hall at Disney while working on Black Panther as my big sister inspired her crew with love and navigated the challenges of studio filmmaking, adapting a book that many people called unfilmable into a movie that explodes with hope, with love and with women warriors".
Despite looking it like A Wrinkle in Time will do okay at the box office, reviews for the movie haven't been as kind, as it now ranks at 42% among critics on Rotten Tomatoes, while Metacritic has it scored at 53. This was in line with most expectations, though middling reviews suggest that the second film in The Strangers series may become a stranger to the top ten sooner rather than later.

Coogler also highlighted DuVernay's passion for equality and how she made sure that women directors and creatives were hired during the creation of her TV series, Queen Sugar and her searing Netflix documentary, 13th. It's the first film since "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" to lead the North American box office for four straight weekends and it has grossed $1.08 billion worldwide, 21st highest of all time.
With A Wrinkle in Time's opening weekend competition including smaller fare like Gringo, Thoroughbreds and The Strangers: Prey at Night, it's not shocking that it was the top performer last night. Dropping 52% in attendance to $8.1 million, the film was knocked it into the #4 spot.
In fifth spot was Warner Bros. comedy thriller "Game Night" with $7.9 million. Even without the $26.2 million grossed overseas, the family film is doing fairly well compared to its $50 million budget, and Sony might want to start considering its sequel options.
