Carmen explains that she’s her own woman in Carmen Jones (1954). For her performance in this role, Dorothy Dandridge became the first African-American woman nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress.
You know what I love about 2017′s line up of superhero films? There are 6 of them, all in one year. One from Fox, Two from DC, Three from Marvel Studios. And all of them are nothing like each other. I mean, just look at this line up:
Logan, a Western inspired R rated film that redefines what the phrase ‘dark/grim superhero movie‘ means.
GotG 2, a sequel to perhaps the most proudly weird superhero movie ever made that’s set to be even weirder.
Wonder Woman, the first female led superhero film (ignoring Supergirl and Catwoman, which we do, cause those movies bombed big time), which is about a warrior from Themyscira fighting Germans in World War 1.
Justice League, DC’s first big team up movie.
And then there’s Thor Ragnarok. Which seems set on out doing Guardians of the Galaxy in terms of over the top comic book weirdness.
Of all the movies coming out this year, the only one that doesn’t feel completely unique is Spider-Man Homecoming. But even that has a villain never before seen in a Spider-Man film, an extremely diverse supporting cast compared to the previous SM films, and it’s going to co-star Iron Man.
