There’s still one week left before Black Panther hits theaters, but luckily we now have the banging soundtrack to keep us occupied.
The Black Panther soundtrack just dropped early Friday, giving us an early look at what is surely to be one of the best movie soundtracks of the year with songs by Grammy-winner Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Khalid, Vince Staples, The Weeknd, and many more.
Give it a listen here:
The soundtrack sounds less like a movie soundtrack and more like a regular album, but it’s clearly inspired by the characters of Black Panther and the fictional African country, Wakanda.
The second track, “All The Stars,” received its own music video, which came out on Wednesday.
Emily Blunt on the pressure of playing Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins is a woman with a talent for putting things back together again.
“Which is why it’s rather apt that after 50 years, she’s returning to our screens at a time when the world is arguably most in need of being put back together.
And, Emily Blunt — who plays Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel Mary Poppins Returns — is well aware of the impact her character has already had on the lives of those who watched the 1964 movie starring Julie Andrews.

Instantly compelled by what he sees, Van Gogh lunges into action, assembling his easel and grasping several paintbrushes in his left hand, while using his right to commit bold, feverish brushstrokes to canvas. His passion is enthralling—so much so, we forget that Dafoe is not a real painter at all.
At Eternity’s Gate envisions the final years of Van Gogh’s life, through a series of vignettes that straddle truth and fiction (much, though not all, is based on the trove of letters the artist left behind). We see his plight as an artist in Paris, his infatuation with the light and landscapes of Arles, and his declining mental health—including when he famously cut off his ear. But it’s not a straightforward account. “This isn’t a biopic, it doesn’t explain his life,” Dafoe recently explained at the New York Film Festival. “It’s really about painting.” Indeed, it is, first and foremost, the story of a painter as told by a painter: Schnabel, who is known for an idiosyncratic painting practice ranging from canvases covered in shattered plates to inkjet prints painted with purple-hued goats…………………………….”
