Director Ava DuVernay can add another important “first” to her growing list of accomplishments. With A Wrinkle In Time, she’s become the first black female director whose movie has earned more than $100 million domestically. She took to Twitter to acknowledge the historic achievement – “Lovely room to be in. But can’t wait for more sisters to be here too.”
Thirteen other black directors have been able to achieve this, but Duvernay is the only woman on the list. Recent additions to the $100 million club include Ryan Coogler for Black Panther ($699 million), Jordan Peele for Get Out ($176 million) and Malcolm D. Lee for Girls Trip($115 million).
