Denzel Washington Returns To Serve Another Helping Of Bloody Justice In ‘The Equalizer 2’ (Trailer)

Ha! That K. Dot music sets the tone for this trailer for real. Damn right it’s “go” time! Especially when Denzel sets that stopwatch around a roomful of soon-to-be-dead bad guys.

Not all enemies are created equal. Watch #TheEqualizer2 new trailer now and don’t miss Denzel back in action July 20th.

Denzel Washington returns to one of his signature roles in the first sequel of his career. Robert McCall serves an unflinching justice for the exploited and oppressed – but how far will he go when that is someone he loves?

The Loving Generation: The Obama Era (Documentary)

Hmm… can a Black President actually be ‘politically black’ for real? What does that even mean? What did Barack Obama’s Presidency mean… to you?

“It was the first time I saw the nation recognize that I exist.”
Jaweer Brown

Great quote. We still have work to do, but great quote. And this documentary episode, too.

Jim Carrey Stars In The Darkest Movie Of His Career To Date (Trailer)

Wow. “Dark Crimes” for real. Heavy on the recognizable faces, but somehow casting does not diminish the story. Jim Carrey is not being uber-silly or uber-philosophical… he threw himself into this role and told this story. At least, that is what I am getting from this stunning trailer.

Hollywood Sex Tape Broker (Documentary)

Wow. Point blank, like that. Kevin knows and declares that people in Hollywood do stupid things; like putting out sex tapes (or even making them, risking them getting leaked). Says he is the man to see if you want to release a celebrity sex tape… and the man to see if you don’t want a sex tape to see the light of day. In short, he’s the man…

VICE went to Los Angeles to meet Kevin Blatt, who’s now become Hollywood’s go-to guy when it comes to releasing or obtaining a celebrity sex tape. After releasing Paris Hilton’s ‘1 Night in Paris,’ Blatt’s been involved in sex scandals with A-list celebrities and was even an expert witness at the Hulk Hogan-Gawker trial. On this episode of ‘Fameish,’ he leads VICE through the underground celebrity sex tape industry, arguing that his business has done “more good for people than bad.”

HBO’s ‘King In The Wilderness’ Examines The Final Years Of Dr. King (Teaser)

We’ve posted on activist/educator Dr. Bernard LaFayette on here, a close associate of Dr. MLK Jr. back in the day. Bet money he could speak on this and more (and he might). But let’s see what this HBO joint has to say. Looks intriguing.

Coming in April, this documentary follows Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the last few years of his life, from the vital role he played in the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to his assassination in 1968.

Tiffany Haddish & Kevin Hart Star In “Night School” (Trailer)

When we tell you that the timing of our posts sometimes floors even us… but then again, it’s a good bet that they had this worked out for the online trends… Anyway, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish were just online clowning together days ago (we posted here)… and now… movie trailer like BOOM!

An Extended First Look At ‘The Death Of Superman’ Animated Movie (Trailer)

I remember buying my brother TWO copies of the ‘Death Of Superman’ bound volume comic when it came out decades ago. Not because I was thinking “collectors’ item… ka-CHING!” Nah, it was because I knew we’d be wearing that thang out reading it; and it was prudent to keep one ‘in the clip’ as a backup.

Epic story. Supes went out the one way he was supposed to… not withering from waves from a green glowing space rock… but from defending the earth, his home (Metropolis) from Doomsday… and falling dead on the battlefield with HONOR. The Super Scout and The Monster BEAT THE F**K OUT OF EACH OTHER!! A fight to the death!

And now DC is doing a movie about it… again. Remembering that they kind of screwed the Krypto with the Doomsday angle in the bloated Batman Vs. Superman movie they did, I’m just saying, “DC, do NOT screw this up!!”

Learn About Malcolm X And His Influence Then & Now (Trailer)

Martin and Malcolm. That’s how we usually characterize the study. Both exerted Overwhelming Influence in our struggle for Civil Rights.

Viewers join in on a road trip from the nation’s capital to the headquarters of the voting rights struggle, Alabama, with Malcolm X co-worker, journalist and lecturer, A. Peter Bailey for a journey through the countryside to meet friends and family of Malcolm X and fascinating front-line veterans of the war for civil rights. We’ll draw the curtain on public perception of Malcolm X, to show you the real man through personal stories from those who knew him.

Johnny Knoxville Stars & Gets Scarred In “Action Point” (Trailer)

Baaahahaaaaaaa! The pull up [attempt] at the end though!!

Can’t believe they are still putting out #Jackass type movies… But this one is over the over-the-top with the slapstick schtick. The line of the “Action Point” movie MUST be the line of this teaser: “What this place needs is an excitement enema!”

But does it though? Does it?

It doesn’t matter either way, because come June 1st, America may as well get ready for the ‘procedure’…

“The Camels Of Arabia” Tells A Story Of Traditions, Pride, And Million Dollar Prizes (Documentary)

VICE continues to bring us insight by focusing on what’s important. Want to learn about a people, focus on what is important… to them. “The Camels of Arabia” are VERY important. Watch and learn…

Camels are the Clydesdales of Saudi Arabia, venerated for their good looks, grace, and speed. Even as the country rapidly modernizes, the animals remain a central part of Saudi culture, and a lucrative one—with prized camels selling for more than $1 million.

VICE trekked to Al-Dahna for the King Abdulaziz Camel Festival—the largest of its kind—where titans of business and politics in the Middle East flock each year for a display of the finest camels in Saudi Arabia. Hundreds of participants pit their camels head-to-head in a frenzied race and beauty contest for a chance to win roughly $57 million in prize money, and a chance to meet Saudi Arabia’s king and crown prince.
