Oh, okay. So, Jared Leto is hopping from one Universe to another – Joker in DC, to being NO JOKE in the Marvel Universe… “Morbius” (not mad though). Watch this all the way to the end.

Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

Richard Jewell: The World Will Know His Name And The Truth (Trailer)

Talk about ‘no good deed going unpunished’… Not sure if the trailer is leading us away from the real plot twist of this flick, but if the authorities always consider the one who reports the crime their prime suspect… well, they can’t be mad at folks not wanting to tell them anything.

Clint Eastwood directing is a great sign. This movie will be good! Looks like a solid cast, too.

‘The Marion Stokes Project’ Looks At A Woman Who Recorded 30 Years Of How We Looked In American Media (Trailer)

Interesting. If the press, or media, provides a ‘first draft of history,’ what can we say about this lady… who recording EVERYTHING media?

For over 30 years, Marion Stokes obsessively and privately recorded American television news twenty-four hours a day. A civil rights-era radical who became fabulously wealthy and reclusive later in life, her obsession started with the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1979—at the dawn of the twenty-four hour news cycle. It ended on December 14, 2012 as the Sandy Hook massacre played on television while Marion passed away. In between, Marion filled 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows and commercials that show us how television shaped the world of today and in the process tell us who we were.

A mystery in the form of a time capsule, RECORDER delves into the strange life of a woman for whom home taping was a form of activism to protect the truth (the public didn’t know it, but the networks had been disposing their archives for decades into the trashcan of history) and though her visionary and maddening project nearly tore her family apart, her extraordinary legacy is priceless.

The Last App She May Ever Download, “Countdown” Comes To Theaters October 25th (Trailer)

Nope, nope, naw hell!!

I remember that commercial that talked about that phone number you could call to find out when you were going to die. No way I was calling then… no way I would download this sh!t now. Yeah, yeah, ha ha, laugh and say, “It’s just a movie all you want” but nah…

In COUNTDOWN, when a young nurse (Elizabeth Lail) downloads an app that claims to predict exactly when a person is going to die, it tells her she only has three days to live. With time ticking away and death closing in, she must find a way to save her life before time runs out.

This Thanksgiving In Theaters: Tom Hanks Asks, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” (Trailer)

Best. Casting. EVER! Get your issue of tissues, because the sweet memories of Mister Rogers alone might bring a tear to your eyes. Just imagine what is gonna happen when the Oscar-winning Tom Hanks brings him back to life on the big screen.

Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

The Story Behind Little Brother’s Debut Album, “The Listening” (Documentary)

When you hear them together, it sounds right…

This is how dope documentaries get done! Okay, so at 11 minutes it’s more like a mini-doc… but just right. Frame the story as a ‘making of’ but drop all kinds of gems and jewels of history (group and Hip-Hop) along the way.

Started in a college dorm room by a group of North Carolina Central students in 2001, the Justus League collective and offshoot trio Little Brother defined the sound of Durham Hip-Hop for years to come, constructing a style altogether distinct from everything to the north and south. This level of innovation turned heads with some of Hip-Hop’s biggest names, and the members of Little Brother (9th Wonder, Big Pooh and Phonte) have gone on to work with superstars like Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre and Questlove, who appears in the documentary.
