Chadwick Boseman, the charismatic and critically acclaimed actor who starred in the 2018 blockbuster “Black Panther,” died of colon cancer at his Los Angeles home on August 28, 2020. He was 43. In a public statement issued by his family, Boseman had been diagnosed with cancer in 2016, but he never revealed this diagnosis to the public, according to the Associated Press.

In addition to starring in “Black Panther,” Boseman had roles in other Marvel superhero movies such as 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War,” 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame.” He also starred as several African American icons in biopics, such as baseball player Jackie Robinson in the 2013 movie “42,” singer James Brown in 2014’s “Get on Up” and Thurgood Marshall in 2017’s “Marshall.” He also starred in the cop drama “21 Bridges,” which was his first movie in which he was a producer. Boseman’s last two film roles were for Netflix: He portrayed a Vietnam War soldier in the 2020 drama “Da 5 Bloods” (directed and co-written by Spike Lee) and co-starred with Viola Davis in the drama “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” which does not have a release date yet.

Born on November 29, 1976, in Anderson, South Carolina, Boseman graduated from Howard University in 2000, with a bachelor of fine arts degree in directing. Two important mentors he had during his college years were Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington (who reportedly paid for Boseman’s college tuition) and actress Phylicia Rashad, who was one of his teachers at Howard. Boseman was also a graduate of Digital Film Academy and aspired to be a director.

Boseman made his film debut in 2008’s “The Express.” Before getting starring roles movies, he had roles in TV shows and in theater, most notably in the 2010 short-lived NBC series “Persons Unknown” and in a recurring role in 2008 and 2009 in the ABC Family series “Lincoln Heights,” which was on the air from 2007 to 2010. But he was best known for playing African king superhero T’Challa in “Black Panther,” which was the second highest-grossing film of 2018 in the world (with $1.3 billion in ticket sales), second to “Avengers: Infinity War,” which had worldwide ticket sales of $2 billion. Of the $1.3 billion that “Black Panther” had in worldwide ticket sales, $700 million were ticket sales in the U.S., making “Black Panther” the highest-grossing film in the U.S. in 2018.

“Black Panther” won numerous awards, including three Oscars: for costume design, production design and original score. Boseman and the rest of “Black Panther” stars won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and the movie won several NAACP Image Awards. A sequel to “Black Panther” had been announced to be released in 2022, but had not begun filming at the time that Boseman passed away. As of now, it’s unclear what will happen to the movie because of Boseman’s death. Also in limbo is the movie “Yasuke,” in which Boseman had the title role, but the movie hadn’t begun filming at the time of his death.

The Boseman family statement says: “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From ‘Marshall’ to ‘Da 5 Bloods,’ August Wilson’s ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom’ and several more—all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in ‘Black Panther.’”

Boseman is survived by his wife Taylor Simone Ledward and his parents Leroy and Karen Boseman.

Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” shattered box-office records for the highest-grossing opening weekend in movie history so far. The superhero sequel (which opened worldwide on April 26, 2019) sold a whopping $350 million in tickets in the U.S. and Canada, and had a total worldwide haul of $1.2 billion, according to Box Office Mojo. The previous record was held by 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which had opening-weekend sales of $258 million in the U.S. and Canada and $641 million worldwide. With these numbers, “Avengers: Endgame” is easily on track to becoming the highest-grossing movie of the 2010s decade, surpassing 2014’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” whose ticket sales totaled $914 million in the U.S. and Canada and $2.1 billion worldwide. “Avengers: Endgame” will also likely become the No. 2 highest-grossing movie of all time, surpassing 1997’s “Titanic,” which had $659 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales and a total haul of $2.2 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

Even though “Avengers: Endgame” clocks in at about three hours, several movie theaters (including AMC Theatres in numerous cities) stayed open 24 hours a day during the movie’s opening weekend to accommodate the demand for tickets and screenings. Some theaters remained open for 24 hours even after the opening weekend so that they could have round-the-clock “Avengers: Endgame” screenings for the movie’s entire first week in theaters. As previously reported, advance ticket sales for “Avengers: Endgame” caused crashes on several websites that sell movie tickets including AMC Theaters, Alamo Drafthouse, Atom Tickets and Fandango.

“Avengers: Endgame” has a superhero cast that includes Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (played by Chris Evans), Black Widow (played by Scarlett Joahnsson), Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner), War Machine (played by Don Cheadle), Ant-Man (played by Paul Rudd) and Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson). “Avengers: Endgame” reveals what happened to all the superheroes who “died” in “Avengers: Infinity War.” The remaining superheroes band together to go after supervillain Thanos (played by Josh Brolin), who was responsible for wiping out half of the universe’s population at the end of “Avengers: Infinity War.” Brother duo Anthony Russo and Joe Russo directed “Avengers: Endgame,” as well as “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

Marvel superhero fever has reached new heights as Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” (which arrives in cinemas on April 26, 2019) broke first-day pre-sale records for Fandango and Atom Tickets. When the movie’s tickets went on sale at 8 a.m. ET on April 2, 2019, demand was so high that it apparently caused website crashes for AMC Theatres (the largest cinema chain in the United States), Alamo Drafthouse, Fandango and Atom Tickets. AMC Theatres’ website was offline for at least five hours during the crash. Numerous customers who normally would have purchased tickets online had to go to movie theaters to get their tickets.

According to an Atom Tickets press release: “‘Avengers: Endgame” has set a new record on Atom Tickets for the best first day of sales in less than half a day (and ticket purchases are ongoing). So far, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has outsold the previous record held by ‘Aquaman,’ by four times the amount … To date, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has sold three times more tickets on Atom in the first hour of pre-sales than ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ did last year. The first hour of pre-sales for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ sets a new record for Atom Tickets, outpacing ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ which round out the top 3 movies with the best first hour of presales.”

While supplies last, Atom is offering an exclusive “Avengers: Endgame” movie poster designed by Australian artist Bosslogic as a gift with a ticket purchase. Bosslogic. AMC and Alamo Drafthouse also have their own exclusive “Avengers: Endgame” giveaways for people who buy tickets for the “Avengers: Endgame” preview shows taking place on April 25, 2019.

Meanwhile, Fandango announced that “Avengers: Endgame” now holds the Fandango record as the biggest-selling movie for first-day pre-sale tickets, This Fandango record was previously held by 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which now holds Fandango’s No. 2 spot, followed by 2017’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” at No. 3; 2016’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” at No. 4; and 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War” at No. 5.

“Avengers: Endgame” has a superhero cast that includes Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (played by Chris Evans), Black Widow (played by Scarlett Joahnsson), Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner), War Machine (played by Don Cheadle), Ant-Man (played by Paul Rudd) and Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson). “Avengers: Endgame,” which clocks in at a little more than three hours, is expected to be reveal what happened to all the superheroes who “died” in “Avengers: Infinity War.” Brother duo Anthony Russo and Joe Russo directed “Avengers: Endgame,” as well as “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”

“Marvel 22” Marathon

Adding to the Marvel superhero madness, AMC Theaters, Alamo Drafthouse,  Cinemark and Megaplex Theatres are hosting “Marvel 22,” a 59-hour marathon in select cities showing all 22 of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, from 2008’s “Iron Man” to 2019’s “Avengers: Infinity War.” AMC and Cinemark are charging $125 per ticket, while Alamo Drafthouse is charging $135 per ticket, and Megaplex is charging $99 per ticket.

BTS did not attend the ceremony but sent a pre-recorded acceptance speech instead.

The show had musical performances from Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora and John Legend. Minaj featuring Tyga performed “Good Form” and Dip,” while Ora sang “Let You Love Me.” Legend performed a piano cover version of U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love),” after introducing the inaugural prize of People’s Champion of 2018 to activist Bryan Stevenson.

The 13th annual New York Comic Con takes place October 4 to October 7 in New York City. The event is expected to draw about 200,000 people, according to ReedPOP, the company that produces the event. New York Comic Con’s main hub is at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, but there are also numerous activities taking place at several other locations in the city, including Hammerstein Ballroom, Shop Studios, the New York Public Library and the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.

TV shows dominate the most high-profile panels and activities. “The Walking Dead” TV series has had a panel at New York Comic Con every year since the show debuted in 2010. The show’s ninth season (which premieres October 7, 2018) will have the last episodes with Andrew Lincoln, who plays “The Walking Dead” group leader Rick Grimes. Lincoln is leaving the show because he says he wants to spend more time with his family.

New York Comic Con in 2018 also has four major exclusive TV panels: “Outlander,” which is coming to New York Comic Con for the first time this year; “Doctor Who,” with the Comic Con debut of Jodie Whittaker, the first woman to play the show’s title role; “Tardis Time,” a panel reuniting former “Doctor Who” cast members David Tennant, Matt Smith and Alex Kingston; and a “Netflix and Chills” panel, with sneak previews of Netflix’s upcoming supernatural shows  (“Umbrella Academy,” “The Haunting of Hill House” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,”  “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance”), as well as interviews with some of the cast members.

Meanwhile, “Riverdale” will have its New York Comic Con panel debut this year. “Gotham,” which has been at New York Comic Con since its 2014 debut, will have its final New York Comic Con panel before the series ends in 2019.

There are some movies due to be released in theaters that will also be showcased at the event, such as “Mortal Engines,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” and “Dragon Ball Super: Broly.” And, of course, there will be plenty of panels, exhibits and previews for comic books, video games, fantasy novels and other pop-culture attractions.

ANIME FEST

 As previously reported, for the first time this year, New York Comic Con has partnered with Anime Expo to create Anime Fest, which will take place on the same days as New York Comic Con 2018 in New York City: October 4 to October 7.  Anime Fest, which will be held at Pier 94, requires a separate price of admission for everyone.

2018 E! People’s Choice Awards: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ has the most nominations

September 24, 2018

by Carla Hay

People's Choice Awards

With six nominations, the Marvel superhero movie “Avengers: Infinity War” is the leading contender for the 2018 E! People’s Choice Awards, which will take place Nov. 11 at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. E! will have the U.S. telecast of the show at 9 p.m. ET/PT. E!’s televised red-carpet coverage of the show begins at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Following close behind with five nominations each are the the Marvel superhero film “Black Panther,” ABC’s drama series “Grey’s Anatomy” and Freeform’s now-canceled sci-fi/fantasy series “Shadowhunters,” whose final episodes will premiere in 2019. Four out of the five nominations for “Shadowhunters” came from write-in votes. Write-in votes also played a huge role in Korean boy bands BTS and Super Junior getting nominations.

Online voting for the winners will take place from Sept. 24 to Oct. 19. As previously reported, there are 13 new categories this year.

Complete rules can be found at: https://www.eonline.com/ peoples_choice_awards/rules

Complete list of category and nominee hashtags can be found at: https://www.eonline.com/ peoples_choice_awards/faq

The E! People’s Choice Awards are produced by Wilshire Studios and Den of Thieves with executive producers Jesse Ignjatovic and Evan Prager.  

Here’s a breakdown of some of the snubs and surprises, with all the nominees listed at the end of this article.

MOVIES

“Mission: Impossible — Fallout” was a big hit with fans and critics, but the movie failed to get any nominations. “Mission: Impossible” star Tom Cruise, who famously does most of his stunts, couldn’t even get a nomination for Action Movie Star of 2018. Instead, the surprise nomination in that category is “Black Panther” co-star Danai Gurira, who is the only female nominated in that category. Who else didn’t make the cut for Action Movie Star of 2018? Preliminary nominees Alicia Vikander of “Tomb Raider,” Dwayne Johnson of “Rampage,” Michael B. Jordan of “Black Panther,” Donald Glover of “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” Evangeline Lilly of “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and Scarlett Johansson of “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Another big surprise was “Fifty Shades Freed” getting three nominations, including Movie of 2018. All the “Fifty Shades” movies in the trilogy have gotten overwhelmingly bad reviews, so the loyal “Fifty Shades” fan base is the only logical explanation for how this film got nominated for the top movie prize at this award show.

E!’s target demographic skews young (18-to-34) and female, so that might also explain why the female-led “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” “Ocean’s 8” and “The Spy Who Dumped Me” picked up a decent amount of nominations (three each), even though these movies got mixed reviews from critics. It would also explain why “12 Strong” (starring Chris Hemsworth), “Red Sparrow” (starring Jennifer Lawrence) and “Midnight Sun” (starring Bella Thorne) got nominated for Drama Movie of 2018, even though all three movies flopped at the box office and got mixed or negative reviews from critics.

TV

The power of write-in fan votes can be seen with all the nominations that “Shadowhunters” ended up getting, including for the top TV category: Show of 2018.  Kim Kardashian West, the most famous star on E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” was snubbed and didn’t get nominated in the new category Reality Star of 2018, but her sister/co-star Khloe Kardashian was nominated. A surprise nomination is Antoni Porowski of Netflix’s “Queer Eye,” who is a newcomer to reality TV, compared to others nominated in the category.

Other snubs: NBC’s “Will & Grace” was shut out of the final nominations, and so was NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” ABC’s “The Good Doctor” and ABC’s “Scandal.”

A surprise nomination is Facebook Watch’s “Red Table Talk,” hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, which got a nomination for Daytime Talk Show of 2018. This is Facebook Watch’s first People’s Choice nomination since the streaming service was launched in 2017.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which both won several Primetime Emmy Awards in 2018, were not eligible for the 2018 People’s Choice Awards, since “Game of Thrones” did not have any new episodes in 2018, and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” still has not announced the 2018 premiere date for the show’s second season. (The deadline to vote for this year’s People’s Choice nominations was September 14, 2018.)

MUSIC

As previously mentioned, BTS and Super Junior rode the wave of write-in votes to get nominations. They’re both nominated in the Group of 2018 category.  BTS has four nominations (two of which came from write-in votes to put BTS’s “Idol” in the Song and Music Video categories), while Super Junior’s two nominations came from write-in votes. Super Junior biggest surprise nomination is in the new category Concert Tour of the Year.

There were many snubs in the music categories. Eligible artists who received American Music Award nominations in 2018, but no People Choice Award nominations this year included Maroon 5, Kendrick Lamar, Imagine Dragons, Travis Scott and Migos. Jason Aldean, who is fave at the major country music awards every year, also failed to get a People’s Choice nomination this year.

POP CULTURE

A big surprise nomination was Ali Wong in the new category of Comedy Act of the Year instead of more famous comedians such as Chris Rock, Fred Armisen and Leslie Jones. And all the podcasts nominated for Pop Podcast of 2018 are led by female hosts, which is noteworthy considering that the podcasting world is very male-dominated. Some big names got snubbed for the Pop Podcast nominations, including Oprah Winfrey and Alec Baldwin, who were on the list of preliminary nominees.

LeBron James was another big celebrity who was shut out of the final nominations. He was eligible for Game Changer of 2018, a new category for athletes who made a social/professional impact, but he didn’t make the final cut. The biggest surprise nomination in that category was Nina Jax. Even though Jax did win her first championship title this year, she is known mostly for her villain persona and feuds with other wrestlers.

Liza Koshy, who seems to be nominated at every award show that has a category for social media stars, was snubbed this year for a People’s Choice nomination. And the voters for the People’s Choice Awards must be tired of Kim Kardashian West and her half-sister Kylie Jenner because they were shut out of getting nominated for any People’s Choice Awards this year, including Social Celebrity of 2018.

Here’s the complete list of nominees for the E! People’s Choice Awards.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ breaks ticket-sales records for 2018, cementing Marvel Studios’ phenomenal year

“Avengers: Infinity War” (set for theatrical release on April 27, 2018) has the biggest group of Marvel superheroes in one movie, so it seems inevitable that “Avengers: Infinity War” is on track to be the biggest movie of 2018 and the biggest superhero movie in film history so far.* Sibling filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo directed “Avengers: Infinity War.” They previously helmed Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and the superhero mega-gathering of “Captain America: Civil War.”

The year 2018 is shaping up to be a record-breaking year for Marvel Studios, which has already had massive success with “Black Panther,” the top movie of the first quarter of 2018.  “Blank Panther” set its own records (it’s the biggest-selling movie to ever open in the month of February), but “Avengers: Infinity War” is blowing past the box-office numbers of “Black Panther” and several other superhero movies for total worldwide ticket sales. Fandango has announced that advance ticket sales number for “Avengers: Infinity War” is double of what “Black Panther” was during the same pre-release period of time.

According to a Fandango press release, “Avengers: Infinity War” is outselling the previous seven Marvel superhero movies combined: “Black Panther,” “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Doctor Strange,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “Ant-Man.” The superheroes in all seven of those movies are starring in “Avengers: Infinity War,” as the characters gather to defeat the evil supervillain Thanos (played by Josh Brolin).

The cast of characters in “Avengers: Infinity War” reads like a who’s who Marvel superheroes: Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland), Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.),  Captain America (played by Chris Evans), Hulk (played by Mark Ruffalo), Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth), Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman), Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson), War Machine (played by Don Cheadle), Scarlett Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier (played by Sebastian Stan), Falcon (played by Anthony Mackie), Vision (played by Paul Bettany) and Guardians of the Galaxy (played by Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, as well as the voice talents of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper). Also on board are Avengers “frenemies” Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) and Nebula (played by Karen Gillan).

The record-breaking success of “Avengers: Infinity War” comes as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is  celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.  When “Iron Man” was released in 2008, it set off an unbroken string of hits from Marvel Studios, which previously operated as an independent studio affiliated with various studios such as Paramount, Fox and Sony before Marvel Entertainment was acquired by Disney in 2009.

In related news, Fandango is offering limited edition “Avengers: Infinity War” collectible movie character gift cards here. With every Fandango VIP purchase of “Infinity War” tickets, Fandango is offering a complimentary “Infinity War” poster by popular artist Kaz Oomori from Fandango Fanshop, while supplies last. Fans have the option to choose one of five exclusive posters, featuring Black Panther, Okoye, Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Guardians of the Galaxy and many others.

*April 30, 2018 UPDATE: According to Box Office Mojo: “Avengers: Infinity War” broke “both the domestic opening weekend box office record and worldwide opening record with a massive $250 million domestically and $630 million worldwide.”
