Director Ryan Coogler and his wife Zinzi Evans served up coupledom vibes on the carpet. Last week, a Facebook group was formed to try and sabotage the film's success. Here's what Ryan had to say about it all: “For me, I’m looking forward to everybody seeing the film,” Ryan told the Huffington Post.“I’m really looking forward to sharing the film with audiences regardless of what their political views are … that’s kind of where I [stand on that].”
