The Woman King | Viola Davis, John Boyega | Premiering at TIFF! | Sept. 16, 2022

Recommended Posts





Inspired by true events that took place in The Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful states of Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries, The Woman King tells the story of Nanisca (Davis), general of the all-female military unit known as the Amazons, and her daughter Nawi (Nyong’o), who together fought the French and neighboring tribes who violated their honor, enslaved their people, and threatened to destroy everything they’ve lived for.

Sweet. The Dora Milaje were actually based on these women warriors.

Wonder Woman, Black Panther, The Woman King...seems like women warriors are all the rage. Can we get a Marvel film about the Valkyrior (sort of like a prequel to Thor Ragnarok starring Tessa Thompson and her fellow Vallhalla maidens)? Cuz I would watch the sh** out of that movie)...

Omg, yes! 


Give me. 


Viola and Lupita could even pass off as sisters to be honest.


But I’m not complaining about getting a badass mother-daughter duo
