From biopics to superhero movies and everything in between, here are the 10 best Chadwick Boseman movies to watch right now. Oh, and we include links to where you can watch these titles online as well! Intro

1) Get On Up

Chadwick Boseman may be most famous for his portrayal of T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War and Black Panther, but he also has a long list of successful movies. He’s starred in multiple biopics such as 42, Get On Up, and Marshall. Although he’s acted in action films like The Express and Temptation, he’s also performed comedy-focused roles like that of boxer Hurricane Carter in The New Edition Story. As well as being featured in historical movies like 42 (about Jackie Robinson) and Marshall (about Thurgood Marshall), he was cast alongside Jamie Foxx in musical film Black Nativity. There are plenty more where those came from; here are 10 great Chadwick Boseman movies worth watching

2) 42

A biopic of a baseball legend. There is nothing bad that can be said about 42. It’s a story of inspiration, determination, and perseverance. Chadwick Boseman shines as Jackie Robinson, using his tremendous acting skills to deliver one of his best performances to date. And Harrison Ford does an excellent job in portraying Branch Rickey, who gave Robinson a chance when no one else would have. This movie should definitely be added to your watch list!

3) The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

When you’re watching a show based on a famous court case, you might expect there to be some dramatic license taken with some of details of that case. But when The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story premiered in 2016, most viewers were surprised at just how accurate it was . . . down to little details like Marcia Clark’s hairstyle and specific quotes from actual witnesses. Fans of O.J., or anyone who has a morbid curiosity about how all of those events went down, will enjoy reliving them over and over again—and discovering all sorts of weird truths along the way (like Fred Goldman going through Nicole Brown Simpson’s closet).

4) Black Panther

The 2018 film Black Panther may have been a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) release, but it was more than just another superhero movie. It introduced audiences to Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa and set him up as an immensely important figure in pop culture. However, because of how successful Black Panther has been, you might be wondering what other movies you can watch starring its star. Well, if you’re looking for a mix of dramas and action films starring one of Hollywood’s most talented actors today, check out our list below: 10 Best Chadwick Boseman Movies to Watch Right Now!

5) Message from the King

This is a crime drama that follows a Los Angeles private detective who travels to South Africa after learning about his long-lost teenage brother’s murder. The movie, written and directed by David Mackenzie, is slated for release on January 20, 2017. Chadwick Boseman will play both roles in his second movie with director David Mackenzie following 2014’s Outlaw King. In Message from the King, he’ll play opposite Teresa Palmer, Luke Evans and Alfred Molina. In addition to playing Martin Luther King Jr.

6) Marshall

Despite his accolades, very few of Chadwick Boseman’s movies have made a splash in mainstream culture. But that could be about to change with Black Panther. His turn as T’Challa (aka Black Panther) is one of his best roles yet and audiences are going crazy for it. When he dons the suit, he turns into a fierce warrior with no equal — and when you see him in action you’ll understand why comic book fans fell in love with him from day one. And just like them, we think it’s time everyone gets familiar with King T’Challa/Black Panther and his great movie catalogue!

7) Draft Day

This 2014 sports drama, starring American football legend Ray Lewis and directed by Ivan Reitman, was a box office success. It’s easy to see why: With a cast of huge names including Kevin Costner and Ellen Burstyn and an athletic theme that never gets old, it’s a great watch if you like sports or just good acting. The film follows general manager Sonny Weaver Jr. (played by Costner) as he attempts to trade up in order to draft number one player in college football Zac MacCready (played by Boseman). The player is keen on joining his team but his agent wants more money than they have—the pressure’s on for Weaver Jr.

8) Miracle at St. Anna

This 2008 World War II drama follows four African-American soldiers as they engage in a mission against Germans in Italy. Told from multiple perspectives, it was nominated for several awards and features an all-star cast, including Derek Luke and Michael Ealy. However, it’s best known for featuring actor Chadwick Boseman before he became a household name as Black Panther. Catch him here in one of his earliest roles—and as arguably his most ruggedly handsome one.

9) T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War

If you enjoyed Chadwick Boseman’s take on T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War (which, it should be noted, also features a fantastic performance from Daniel Brühl as Helmut Zemo), there are plenty of reasons to be excited for his standalone movie. First and foremost is that it’s directed by Ryan Coogler. His Creed earned him an Oscar nomination for directing and helped establish Michael B. Jordan as a star, so there’s clearly something about his style that lends itself well to superhero movies. If you enjoyed Black Panther’s character arc in Civil War, then look forward to seeing more of his origin story here—something we won’t get if Marvel goes with The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo for future standalones.

10) Country Strong

(2010) Country Strong is one of many movies in which our favorite Black Panther is featured. As a young country singer who hits rock bottom when his career falls apart, he must decide whether or not he’s going to let his wife’s mental illness take control of their lives. It’s a thought-provoking movie that will have you rooting for both strong leads throughout its entirety. And in case you need another reason to love it, it also features Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw. Need we say more? If you’re looking for a quality flick with Boseman at its center, look no further than Country Strong!
