FIRST LOOK : "Black Panther" on Record Setting Pace; "Samson," "Early Man" Open Also

Marvel's up to the plate with the solo debut of "The Black Panther," which has attracted a record amount of advance online ticket sales. It's a first too for casting of African American actors in lead roles of a superhero film. Some insiders predict this will give it long run legs similar to the extended play of "Wonder Woman." 

Advance previews begin Thursday night.

FLASHBACK CINEMA

FIRST LOOK : "Black Panther" on Record Setting Pace; "Samson," "Early Man" Open Also

It's off to see the wonderful Wizard of Oz on the big screen as this week's Flashback. Starring Judy Garland as the Kansas gal blown to the Yellowbrick Road of Oz, she and Toto meet the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and witches.  She also acquires a pair of magical ruby red slippers upon arrival.  Considered one of the best icons of popular culture, the 1939 film has stunning f/x, such as the house twirling to Oz. It's not without a continuity error, or two, either --- Dorothy's (Garland's) hair style changes within a scene and once she wear black shoes , not ruby ones. The click your heels three times footwear symbolically represent the little guy (or gal) prevailing over powerful forces. 

OZ shows Sunday Feb. 18 and 21 at 3:30 and 7 p.m. at Marquee's Galleria, Pullman, Southridge and Highlands multiplexes. 

Upcoming Flashback classics include:

- True Grit (John Wayne), Feb. 25 & 28

- The Godfather (Al Pacino, Marlon Brando), March 4 & 7

- Quiet Man (John Wayne, Maureen O'hara), March 11 & 14. 

 

 

BLACK PANTHER

 

"Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the events of "Captain America: Civil War," returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

 

SAMSON

A Hebrew with an unusual gift of strength must respond properly to the call of God on his life in order to lead his people out of enslavement. After his youthful ambition leads to a tragic marriage, his acts of revenge thrust him into direct conflict with the Philistine army. As his brother mounts a tribal rebellion, only Samson's relationship with a Philistine temptress and his final surrender both to the Philistines and to God turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

 

EARLY MAN

 

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.
