[FFmpeg-user] watermark text with background at the bottom center of video

I am currently using the following command which writes text with a black
background, but the text goes to the top left of the video.

ffmpeg -i myvideo.flv -vf drawtext="fontfile=/root/video/Bristol.otf:
text='Stack Overflow': fontcolor=white: fontsize=24: box=1:
boxcolor=black at 1:  x=(w-text_w)/2: y=(h-text_h)/2" -codec:a copy output.flv

I want to have a full black background cover the bottom of the video and in
the center of the black background write the text.

How would I achieve this?
