Faces of Black Excellence

Changing history with filmmaking: here are 10 movies you probably didn’t know were directed by black filmmakers

The Fantastic Four: Rise of the silver surfer

Directed by Tim Story, this movie cast a four-man superhero blockbuster, which was a sequel to the 2005 film, Fantastic Four. It was released by 20th-century fox, and if there was any doubt about the accomplishments of black directors, Tim definitely flipped the script. Producers invested $120 million and raked in $290.4 million in profits, according to fantastic four movies. Tim was commissioned to direct the movie after the success of the Fantastic Four in 2005; it was his biggest-budget film, and he definitely didn’t disappoint.
