Nia DaCosta's 'Candyman' Makes History! 🐝

At 31 years old, Nia DaCosta becomes the first Black Woman filmmaker to have a movie open number 1 at the Domestic Box Office



Candyman marks the second-highest grossing 3-day domestic weekend B.O. opening for a Black female director

DaCosta is poised to bring in another Box Office hit with her film The Marvels, which is another milestone: The first black woman to direct a film from Marvel Studios.



The update is directed by Nia DaCosta and co-written by Jordan Peele (with DaCosta and Win Rosenfield). It still involves the menacing figure who comes after you if you say his name five times in front of a mirror, but this scene reaches back to the story of the original film.
