Latest Look: ‘Fast & Furious’ Presents “Hobbs & Shaw” (Trailer)

The cars, the speed, the guns, the gritty witty banter… sure. Throw all that in there. But The Rock going back home, to round up the homies, to lead a Haka and an epic old school beat-the-hell-outta-everybody gang-on-gang fight???? &%$! YEAH!!!

Man, that “Hobbs & Shaw” movie is gonna take the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise in a whole other outrageous, hilarious, who-in-the-hell-left-the-gate-open direction. Lots of buttered popcorn and sodas will be sold when this hits screens!

Idris’ character looks like he is giving them hell. Haaaa!

Interesting. I just got my brother BoneBreaker Jones to watch that first “Avengers” MCU movie. I urged him to watch the movies in order as they came out. But Looper suggests a different order. Good points, too. Not mad at them for this.

Action Flick “Anna” Set To Kick A** In Theaters This June (Trailer)

“Anna” is gonna kill it (because she’s an assassin, get it?). Off topic but sort of not… That restaurant fight scene in the trailer feels like a scene that should be in a Marvel ‘Black Widow’ movie (if they ever get it together and make one).

“Joker” Comes To Theaters This Fall (Trailer)

Whoa, Zazie Beetz (with your fine self)… you are in the MARVEL Universe… why the jump to a DC origin story? Actually, though, this looks pretty dope. Good casting and compelling storytelling; let the trailer tell it.

There will be immediate comparisons to Heath Ledger’s (RIP) “Joker” to be certain.

Famous Last Words: Let’s Hang Out At “Ma’s” (Trailer)

Maaannn, these kids get everything they want and a lot of what they don’t. Kids will be kids… who will end up dead… messing with Ma… and NOT following her rules!

Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”

But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty And The Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart Of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Books To Big Screen: Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark Comes To Theaters This Summer (Trailer)

How are they just gonna try sneak flipping the sweet “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” song from ‘Wizard Of Oz’ into like the evilest eeriest theme music ever?? Wow.

From the dark imaginations of Academy Award®-winner Guillermo del Toro and acclaimed director André Øvredal, based on the iconic book series, comes Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark — in theaters this summer.

It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time—stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home.

Dope! This is like the way Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. retold the Ghost Rider character’s story… crossed with some elements of ‘The Equalizer’ and Marvel’s The Punisher. Make way for the Latino Frank Castle aka The Ghetto Grim Reaper aka El Chicano!

Comedy: “Kevin Hart: Irresponsible” Coming To Netflix This April (Trailer)

Okay. So it looks like Kevin is gonna talk about his marriage scandal… pretty bold. But then again, when he got a grip on things he talked about his first marriage’s end candidly; on and off stage. Being able to speak on what most would think should be ‘too personal’ kinda makes a comedian ‘bulletproof’ right? But I remember his cheating and getting caught on tape was off limits (re: his friend Michael Blackson’s comments on the scandal hitting Kevin too close to home when word first got out).

Back on stage. Back to business. On April 2, Kevin Hart brings his sold-out comedy tour, Irresponsible, to a global audience for his first original Netflix standup special. The one-hour special was filmed in front of a sold-out audience of over 15,000 people at the O2 Arena in London, England. Hart touches upon his friends, family, travel… and a year filled with Irresponsible behavior.
– Netflix

Trailer looks funny. Get that Netflix paper then, Kev!

Based On A True Story, “The Best of Enemies” Coming Soon To Theaters (Trailer)

Great casting choices – Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell – to portray two passionate, stubborn societal adversaries who would go through such dramatic challenges and changes in life.

THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.

Yooooo! If big-time producers could deliver this, today, you’d watch! Every week. And that line where Will says his life is NOT a sitcom… Oh, that is just scriptwriting GOLD! And the Meek Mill shirts are a dope touch.

What would happen if Will Smith made The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air today? Bel-Air, a story of a kid from Philly whose life got turned upside-down… in 2019.

A fan-made film.

Starring Jerry Madison as Will Smith.

Of all the super-sci-fi-thriller…

I mean. At first, I wanted to smack the kid. Repeatedly. Then, seeing the trailer… it becomes VERY apparent… that that would VERY bad for my health #DeadAzz #KillerKid

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

The Latest Offering Of The X-Men Franchise, “Dark Phoenix,” Hits The Big Screen June 7th (Trailer)

Well, well. The old run of the ‘X-Men’ blockbusters starting around the turn of the century put out a take on The Phoenix Saga. But this version though… Maaaaan, LET’S GO!

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
– 20th Century Fox

After 10 Years Of Extraterrestrial Occupation, The Resistance Rises (Trailer)

Food for thought: That word ‘insurgency’ we hear in the news nowadays takes on a different meaning when WE are the insurgents, right? The colonialists that raised an army in America, eventually led by General George Washington… Brittain considered them insurgents (not ‘freedom fighters’ or the resistance that would ultimately give birth to the United States of America).

That said, I’m rooting for the insurgents in this “Captive State” trailer, and for the movie itself. Hope it smashes at the box office. Looks like some good popcorn chewing scarfing action!

Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, “Captive State” explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.

RaMell Ross’ Critically-Acclaimed Documentary On Black Life In The Rural South Debuts On PBS (Trailer)

Saw RaMell talking to Trevor on ‘The Daily Show’ about this. Oscar-nominated. Cool. Put the lens on being Black and from Alabama (raising my hand)… and it’s February (Black History Month). Word.

RaMell Ross’s “Hale County This Morning, This Evening,” one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films, is a dreamy and intimate journey through the world of Hale County, Alabama, a richly detailed glimpse into life in America’s Black Belt.
