Oprah Winfrey set for United Kingdom premiere of A Wrinkle In Time

Black Panther

Ryan Coogler published a handsome ode to Ava DuVernay on Friday, the nationwide opening of her Disney film A Wrinkle In Time. The two have known each other since 2013, but Coogler maintains that it feels a lot longer than that, and as previously noted, he calls DuVernay his big sister.

Variety reports that it is tracking towards $13 million on its first Friday, slightly ahead of Black Panther's $9 million.

The Fruitvale Station filmmaker said the Selma director was "already one of [his] heroes" before they had ever met because he admired her 2010 and 2012 films I Will Follow and Middle of Nowhere.

And even with those numbers, Wrinkle In Time may still struggle to make a profit - as its budget far exceeded $100 million.

"Ava is the past, present and future", Coogler wrote. Its cast includes Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and with 14-year-old Storm Reid in a central role, the film actively celebrates the magic of black girlhood.

Ava opened A Wrinkle in Time in the USA yesterday, and Ryan penned an "ode" to the director of the film starring Oprah Winfrey, calling her a "pioneer" for "inclusion, equity and representation".

DuVernay "makes the most distant dreams and ideas a reality" through her work in shows like "Queen Sugar", Coogler wrote.

A Wrinkle In Time is adapted from the book by Madeleine L'Engle, and those who were fond of it are likely to turn out to see the movie. She's quickly become someone to watch in Hollywood, and she's just released her newest film, A Wrinkle in Time, a major Disney property that is essentially about a "little black girl with glasses". The main character in the film, Meg, uses her love, her hope and her kickass skills as a scientist to bring him back, and maybe she saves the universe along the way.

Disney estimates that Ava DuVernay's adaptation of "A Wrinkle in Time" grossed $33.3 million over the weekend from 3,980 locations.
