The British actor spoke about the importance of arts funding while collecting his EE RIsing Star award on Sunday night.
With the success of ‘Get Out’ and ‘Split,’ and the likelihood of ‘It’ becoming a box office smash, horror cinema seems to be seeing a resurgence in critical and commercial acceptability. Depending on who you talk to, recent years have been either a treasure trove or a wasteland for horror movies. On a cult level, interest in the genre has arguably never been higher, with innumerable websites and blogs covering all things horror and scores of horror-based film festivals and conventions popping up across the globe.
Kaluuya, who shot to stardom earlier this year thanks to his performance in the horror film ‘Get Out’, has been cast as W’Kabi, the confidant to Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa/Black Panther. Clearly he’s rather enjoying himself working on ‘Black Panther’, too, because Daniel Kaluuya has been waxing lyrical about it, as well as its director Ryan Coogler, but made sure to insist to GQ, via Metro, that it doesn’t just copy ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Captain America’. This is like ‘Game Of Thrones’.
