‘Candyman’: Nia DaCosta Becomes First Black Female Filmmaker To Open Movie To No. 1 At Domestic B.O. https://t.co/wo2xsG7zsF— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) August 30, 2021
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.
