Sope Aluko, a Christian actress born in Nigeria who holds U.S. and British citizenship, said that the set of "Black Panther" (2018) felt "almost like church."
"During breaks we shared our testimony of how we got to where [we] did and most of the people were testifying to God's miracles, it was almost like church," Aluko told Okay Africa's Ezinne Mgbeahuruike.
Mgbeahuruike had asked her, "How was it working alongside such heavy hitters like Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, and Forest Whitaker?" The actress responded that the "Black Panther" set "felt very familiar and like home."
"We had early call times but I didn't even feel the long set hours because it was such a good time. I didn't feel like I was amongst stars, everyone was so down to earth and normal," Aluko explained. Then came the "church" comment.
It may be encouraging for Christians often afraid of the secular values of Hollywood to hear that God's miracles were discussed on the set of a major motion picture set to release this year. But the context of Aluko's remarks should be even more encouraging.
Aluko suggested that discussing God's miracles in a way that felt "almost like church" was "down to earth and normal." She thought of it as "such a good time," and "very familiar and like home."
What’s she trying to do, get them all blacklisted in Hollywood?
Seriously though, some of the strongest Christians I’ve met have been Nigerian expats. They’ve been taking crap from Muslims there for decades.
Well, that’s very nice.
Still not going to see the movie.
No need to see the Movie with all those new Lexus Commercials.
A guy in a Black Costume jumping into the Sunroof reminded me of the old Hertz Commercials.
The hype for this movie is off the charts. Seriously, how good can it be? It sounds like more FUBU marketing.
“During breaks we shared our testimony of how we got to where [we] did and most of the people were testifying to God’s miracles, it was almost like church,”
Great. Make a movie about that and I might go to see it.
Well, okay then. They are madly pumping up this movie. I walked by a television, and they had it on the national evening news.
What a flaming waste. That is just one reason I haven't watched networks in nearly twenty years.
A guy in a red costume did it earlier...
I’m not interested in the comic book movies, but it’s nice that the cast had a good time.
Still not going to see the movie.
Why does a proud Nigerian woman apparently want to live anywhere except Africa..?
It isnt. True blockbusters like Titanic, the original Star Wars, Godfather, Jaws, 2001 and others, became great because people actually just liked the product that was put before them.
This? This is a flipping comic book movie. The acting will be no better or worse than Deadpool or The Dark Knight. It will have some action sequences and explosions, like all the others.
On it’s own, it would likely be an ok movie, sustained by comic book fans that know the story. Now? it’s a failure because it’s box office will tank into the ground after 7 days because the hype-train will bring a bunch of people in that have no idea what they are watching, and no idea why.
Because it’s a COMIC BOOK MOVIE!
A nigerian born actress who holds both us and british citizenship.
But then even Peter Jennings refused to gove up his Canadian citizenship when he became an American for the purpose of voting against Booosh.
I fully expect the world to end if the number of white people attending does not exceed every figure ever presented for a movie with a black person in it.
Truth be told, I haven't been in a movie theatre since around 1999...I think it was Spiderman.
The environment sucked, the movie sucked and the cost was outrageous.
I don't think things have changed since then...if anything they have gotten worse.
I could care less about this stinking movie...or any of them.
Pant load of smelly stuff.
I actually would have a preferred a nice, thoughtful cinematic treatment of the actual Black Panther movement under the helm of some new director willing to explore all facets of the period objectively. As the movement was divisive even among the African-American civil rights community.
Methinks all the anti white hype has producers worried and they are now trying to figure out how to rebrand this movie oopsy

That would certainly have been totally different from this!
My 21-year-old son is planning to see it this weekend. From the reviews I’ve read, I expect he will like it.
