We can dig it Moguls. Jesse Martin is set to star as the late GOAT in the biopic Sexual Healing and his Marvin Gaye vibe is on point. What do you think?
Harrison Ford stops by Jimmy Kimmel to promote the movie 42. And of course the subject Star Wars came up. Mr. Ford couldn’t address the topic but he did get a chance to come face to face with his past.
Will and Jaden Smith team up for the first time since 2006′s The Pursuit of Happyness, with After Earth. The story is about a general and his son as they try to survive on Earth 1000 years after humanity was wiped out. The movie drops June 6th.
I love Superman, but from the scenes I have been seeing in the different trailers…… Hmm let’s put it this way, I sure hope we get some action with this reboot. Superman finally flies into theaters June 14.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes “The Hangover Part III,” the third and final film in director Todd Phillips’ record-shattering comedy franchise.This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.
Going to the movies is often an expensive proposition. Depending on when and where you hit the theater, you may have already spent a decent amount of cash on a ticket even before you hit the concession stand. Go to more than a few movies a month, and you’re probably spending more at the theater than you do on your monthly cellphone bill.
Enter MoviePass, a service that attempts to cut costs for movie buffs, allowing you to go to the theater and see a 2D movie every day for a single monthly price, ranging from $29.99 to $34.99 depending on your location. Available for iOS for a few months, the MoviePass app launched for Android this week.
According to MoviePass CEO Stacy Spikes, Android owners have been anxious to get access to the app. Spikes told Mashable that some Android owners claim to have even been considering switching to iPhone just to have access to the service.
Yesterday, I took time out to see ‘Lincoln’ and ‘Django Unchained’, back to back. Yes, in that order. I needed to get a glimpse of what slavery was like in the imagination of white men.
As a black filmmaker, I find that I wrestle with thoughts of ‘responsibility’; ‘who will see it’, ‘what impact will it have on the discourse in America’, ‘what images will I be projecting to our youth/to the world’. I’ve often noted, even in film school, white filmmakers don’t have that burden. They were free to write, to be, to create without thinking about this stuff. I’m certain they thought about other things but, the burden of race was not in their baggage. There is such a thing as privileged Art, privileged filmmaking. We see it in the current slate of insipid films coming out of Hollywood. Films that are not responsible or accountable to anyone or anything.
There is so much response to ‘Django’ that I needed to see it. Spike Lee’s words were instructive. I respect Spike. He paid his dues. He is someone who pays attention to representation. Having had him as a Professor, I know that he is someone who gives an ear and a hand to black filmmakers, actors, even people behind the camera. Spike does not need to justify his commitment to black america AT ALL. So, I was disturbed by the awful things said about Spike. For many blacks in and out of the business, Spike Lee champions us, he is a hero. But, hey, we don’t really worship our heroes while they are alive. I saw this quote on Facebook, it was posted by someone that I, usually, find interesting. After he saw ‘Django’, he wrote, “Spike lost.” I will return to this later. Continue reading
Beyonce announced that HBO will air an up close and personal documentary Feb. 16, 2013.
“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”
I am a little surprised that Bey will air her personal life considering how private the Carters are.
Was never an Iron Man fan growing up. He just seemed so c-level compared to Spider-man and Batman. But this right here…. looks like it will continue the Iron Man hype.
This movie with Leonardo DiCaprio looks like a Mogul in action.
“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
