Blog #TehTarik: Movies for December Holidays

It’s the year-end holidays and that also means there’s an interesting line-up of family-friendly movies at the cinemas. Most, if not all of us, are spending as much quality time with family over the month-long end of year school holidays so why not a trip to the cinema this weekend (and the next)?

What’s Currently Showing

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Ryan Coogler, the movie’s director, who also co-wrote the script with Joe Robert Cole, faced the task of rewriting the script and changing the course of the popular franchise upon the untimely death of Chadwick Boseman in 2020. Boseman played the Black Panther/King T’Challa in the first movie.

The result? A box office hit lauded to be one of the best to come out from Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe while still paying a moving tribute to honor Chadwick Boseman and his character’s legacy as Black Panther.

Marvel’s Wakanda Forever premiered in Brunei cinemas in November, but the movie is still running through December.

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile
