‘Black Panther’ Blu-ray Will Include a Bunch of Deleted Scenes and a Gag Reel

The Black Panther mania lives on. After Marvel's latest film overthrew Titantic's longstanding record of being the third highest grossing domestic film of all time, the comic book giant announced Black Panther will be available for viewers to watch at home next month.

But buyers won't just get the film to enjoy in the comfort of their home. There will also be a bunch of new content included like a director's intro and commentary from Ryan Coogler, a roundtable discussion on creating the film, a featurette on the women of Wakanda, a breakdown of the technology in the film, a discussion on Marvel Studios' first 10 years called “Connecting the Universe,” and some Wakanda tourism ads.

Those who buy the new release will also receive deleted scenes titled “U.N. Meet and Greet,” “Okoye and W'Kabi Discuss the Future of Wakanda,” “T'Challa Remembers His Father,” and “Voices from the Past.” There will also be a gag reel that's bound to be hilarious along with a sneak peek at Ant-Man and The Wasp, scheduled to hit theaters July 6. Buyers can also indulge in retailer exclusives like Best Buy's steel-book case, Target's filmmaker edition, or Walmart's exclusive trading cards. But what we really need is more clips of Letitia Wright and Lupita Nyong'o dropping bars.


Black Panther will be available digitally on May 8 while the physical versions will be available May 15.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Will Launch in Saudi Arabia This Month

Rihanna's Fenty Beauty dynasty continues with a launch in Saudi Arabia.

Shortly after Fenty Beauty unleashed their new luminizer products “body lava” and “beach, please,” which have already sold out, RiRi announced that her extremely popular makeup brand will be heading to Saudi Arabia on Twitter.

The news also comes days after Saudi Arabia ended its 35-year-ban on theatrical releases by allowing Black Panther to be shown in its movie theaters.

Fenty Beauty is already available in the Middle East. Back in September, it launched in Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait. One of the central motives behind Fenty is maintaining a diverse selection of products in order to appeal to a global clientele. Rihanna told ET back in September that, “all women deserve to feel beautiful and all women deserve to have a choice and an option when they go to the makeup counter.”

It turns out that this is an opportune time for beauty products to enter the Saudi Arabia market as well. In a 2017 report, EuroMonitor International found that more people are buying beauty and personal care products in Saudi Arabia than ever before.

“The increasing number of Saudi men and women joining the labor force positively impacted the demand for beauty and personal care products, maintaining market development and preventing a sharp decline,” it read. “Newly employed Saudis were also keen on making a good impression in their workplace; therefore they paid more attention to their personal grooming and appearance.”

Fenty Beauty will arrive in Saudi Arabia on April 19.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Sets a Marvel Record With $150 Million Promo Budget

If the choices are go big or go home, Marvel decided to go with the former when it comes to promoting Avengers: Infinity War.

Deadline reports Marvel will be dropping at least an estimated $150 million to promote the upcoming film with partners like Coca-Cola, Quicken Loans, and Infiniti. 

As Deadline notes, this is more than they spent for Spider-Man: Homecoming ($140 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 ($80 million). And it's for good reason. Infinity War has been 10 years in the making, since 2008's Iron Man. A total of 18 films have made it to the screen as a build-up to this epic moment. There's even a promise of characters dying in the film and such high-level spoilers that the film's directors, the Russo brothers, are demanding silence via Thanos.

Other brands assembling with Marvel include Ziploc, Go-Gurt, Yoplait, Synchrony Bank, American Airlines, Stand Up to Cancer, Duracell, Unilever, Quaker, Chevron, and Samsung, which will provide “interactive digital initiatives and robust in-store presences at numerous retailers,” according to Deadline.


In one of the latest collaboration ads for Quicken Loans, Iron Man and Doctor Strange save/destroy the world behind a woman using the financial app before the Sorcerer Supreme safely transports her to her new home.

Infinity War is projected to open to more than $200 million at the box office. On top of Marvel's popularity in general, the film will be riding high on Black Panther's success, If it breaks the bank, the promo would be all worth it.

Avengers: Infinity War opens in theaters on April 27.

Cardi B Is Cardi Boseman in ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promo

Saturday Night Live is watchable this weekend for two undeniable reasons: Cardi B and Chadwick Boseman.

Late Thursday night, NBC did that thing they always do where they have the current week’s host and musical guest stand in front of a camera with an SNL cast member. Much like Cardi and Chadwick's presence on this weekend's new episode makes it watchable, so too does their presence in this batch of promos. See for yourself below:

Cardi's expertly timed SNL appearance arrives amid Invasion of Privacy mania. The album, Cardi's studio debut, dropped Friday and will undoubtedly open at the top of the Billboard 200. The record avoids the arguably overpacked vibes of recent high-profile releases by keeping the experience at a concise 13 tracks. Migos, Chance the Rapper, SZA, 21 Savage, and J Balvin are among the features.


Boseman is fresh off the massive success of Black Panther, which just last month was designated the most tweeted about movie in history. Thankfully, Ryan Coogler's Marvel smash will soon kick Titanic out of the coveted Top 3 Biggest Movies Ever club. As of Tuesday, the film had bagged just over $650 million in the U.S. and was less than $7 million away from taking the No. 3 spot from the—let's face it—extremely overrated James Cameron ship-sinking romp.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Directors Say Thanos Demands You STFU and Not Spoil Anything

When it comes to Avengers: Infinity War spoilers, the Russo brothers are like Black Panther's M'Baku: They will not have it!

As the creative duo is set to begin the press tour for the film, they went to Twitter to ask fans not to ruin the film for others by spreading spoilers. But to be careful, they're not screening the entire film either.

“We will be visiting fans all over the world screening only a limited amount of selected footage from the film in order to avoid spoiling the story for future viewers,” read the letter, held in place by an Infinity Gauntlet with at least four stones in place. “We will not screen the film in its entirety until the Los Angeles premiere shortly before the film’s global release. Everyone involved with the film has worked incredibly hard for the past two years maintaining the highest level of secrecy.” And it turns out “only a handful of people know the film's true plot.”

The letter continues: “We’re asking that when you see Infinity War, in the coming months, that you maintain that same level of secrecy so that all fans can have an equal experience when they watch it for the first time. Don’t spoil it for others, the same way you wouldn’t want it spoiled for you.”

But in case their polite plea wasn't enough, they reinforced it with a more threatening one: #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. Yikes.

There's bound to be heavy spoilers in Infinity War since it's confirmed that character deaths will happen, making way for the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We. Can't. Wait.

‘Black Panther’ Composer Ludwig Göransson Will Also Score ‘Venom’ Movie

Black Panther composer Ludwig Göransson has signed on to score Venom starring Tom Hardy, another highly-anticipated comic book adaptation for the silver screen, according to an exclusive report by Deadline

While it will not be an extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Sony's origin story about the popular Spider-Man antagonist still has tons of fans eager for an edgier adaptation of the iconic villain than the abysmal version played by Topher Grace in 2007's Spider-Man III.

This will not be the first time that Göransson has worked on a film with director Ruben Fleischer. The pair also appeared in the same credits for the 2011 comedy 30 Minutes or Less. Other notable movies composed by Göransson include two of Ryan Coogler's other projects, Creed and Fruitvale Station, as well as hit television series like Community and New Girl. 

Of his work on Black Panther, Göransson told Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision, “I was incredibly excited as it was a dream of mine to score a superhero movie. I also felt incredible pressure to pay homage to African culture and its traditional music. It’s not lost on me that I’m a Swedish guy from one of the coldest countries in the world.”

Along with contributing to his fair share of successful movie scores, the Swedish producer and composer has also worked alongside the multi-talented Donald Glover as the producer for his Childish Gambino albums. In fact, the two are reportedly currently working together on the next (and apparently the last) Gambino project. 

Filmgoers will be able to listen to Göransson's latest work on Venom when the supervillain flick finally hits theaters on October 5.
