While Ryan Coogler's Black Panther continues on its unstoppable domination of cinemas worldwide - it passed the $1 billion in box office takings at the weekend - Ava Duvernay's A Wrinkle in Time took $33.3 million during its opening weekend, which is enough to make it the second highest-grossing film in American cinema at the moment.
Ava is a pioneer. "It's why I feel privileged to call her my big sister", he raved in the letter published on ESPN's website. I met her in 2013, but she's one of those people who you feel like you've always known.
Variety reports that it is tracking towards $13 million on its first Friday, slightly ahead of Black Panther's $9 million.
Ava opened A Wrinkle in Time in the U.S. yesterday, and Ryan penned an "ode" to the director of the film starring Oprah Winfrey, calling her a "pioneer" for "inclusion, equity and representation". "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. A Wrinkle in Time stars Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, and Mindy Kaling; it's a female-driven movie.

After more than five decades of being appreciated as a classic of children's literature, and 15 years after a TV movie version failed to impress, A Wrinkle in Time has finally received the big screen treatment, with director Ava DuVernay's adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's book now playing in theaters.
"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", he wrote to end the letter.
And even with those numbers, Wrinkle In Time may still struggle to make a profit - as its budget far exceeded $100 million.
