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.

Naomie Harris Is “Black And Blue” And On The Wrong Side Of The ‘Thin Blue Line’ (Trailer)

These streets are a war zone.

True that. And this movie is true to that. We know that ‘boys in blue’ can leave the boys in the hood “Black And Blue.” However, this ain’t quite that, esp. for Naomie Harris. It can get really real [dangerous] when those in blue are Black… and up against their own. Edgy, nail-biting trailer!

(And wow! Black Lightning’s Nafessa Williams AND Marvel’s Luke Cage’s Mike Colter AND Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s Frank Grillo are in this, too? Screen action veterans, all across the sci-fi comic hero universes!!)

“Queen & Slim” Debuts In Theaters This Coming November (Trailer)

So they’re making “Queen & Slim” out to be the Black “Bonnie & Clyde”… and a dope version at that!

From trailblazing, Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s Master of None) and Melina Matsoukas, the visionary director of some of this generation’s most powerful pop-culture experiences, including Beyonce’s “Formation” and the Nike “Equality” campaign, comes Makeready’s unflinching new drama, “Queen & Slim.”

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a Black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a Black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

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.

Did you watch the Super Bowl? Yes? No? No matter… the bigger question is: Did you see the commercials? Some sucked, but that new trailer for the forthcoming Jordan Peele movie “Us” though. WHEW!

The Grimes Gang Faces A ‘New Enemy’ On ‘The Walking Dead’ In 2019 (Trailer)

Well, it’s not really the Grimes Gang anymore, is it?
#NoSpoilers

Have you been keeping up with AMC’s series ‘The Walking Dead’ lately? Get your binging in before it returns with new episodes in February 2019 if you have not. It is still compelling television.

The storyline took a turn I kinda figured it would eventually, but not like this. Not like this…

And isn’t that why shows of this caliber are friggin awesome?? Because even the expected is delivered in an unexpected way.

A couple of weeks and TWD is back at it. One question though: WTF is Negan doing at…

This Is “Us”… But This Family’s Facing Way More Drama… And Horror (Trailer)

Amber Stevens West Brings Her ‘African’ Fiancée Home To Meet Her Family (Trailer)

Looks like another one of those is-it-worth-going-through-all-that romantic comedies. The crazy thing is I hate these until I sit down and watch them. Then I end up liking about half of them (not bad). But I don’t want to like them. They just win me over; starting with getting me to even watch in the first place.

And how do they get me to watch? Well, “Love Jacked” obviously knows the secret… cast a super-cute lead like Amber Stevens West (wowzers)! “Love Jacked” debuts in theaters October 26, 2018.

(Full disclosure: I actually like the supporting cast for this one, too.)

Andre 3000 Coming Back To The Big Screen In A Sci-Fi Thriller Called “High Life” (Trailer)

Well. This looks… ominous.

Okay, so don’t try to figure out everything that is going on in this trailer. There is enough meat in what is plain to see: Andre 3000 is back on the big screen (November 7 in France, in 2019 in the U.S.) with a box office hitter like Robert Pattinson (dude from the “Twilight” movies), in a sci-fi thriller that includes a space trip to a black hole.

Yeah, we good. See you next year 3 Stacks.

The Final Teaser For The “Predator” Reboot Is Shorter And Packed With More Crazy Action (Trailer)

Why should we give the “Predator” reboot a chance at the box office? Because,

They’re large.
They’re fast.
And f**king you up is their idea of tourism!

Movie line of the year!! Dialogue like that, plus whatever has Keegan-Michael Key hollering, “YEAH!” like that. Gotta risk the price of the ticket to see.

From the outer reaches of space to the backwoods of southern Georgia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before. And only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biology professor can prevent the end of the human race.

Where to begin to describe this. Okay, war itself is already gory and scary. But how about that just being the backdrop of a movie? How about making a zombie soldier project gone horribly wrong the main plotline? JJ Abrams went and did it. Not sure if we’re ready for it, but we have until November to get there. Peep the trailer.

After More Than 20 Years, “Tales From The Hood” Gets A Sequel (Trailer)

Wow! Spike Lee and the original creators are back with “Tales From The Hood”… TWO! Remember the first one, with mad creepy Mr. Simms, played by Clarence Williams III? Well, Mr. Simms is back… played by Keith David; who is acting just as creepy, just as mad, and not playing with y’all!

In the wake of the success of Jordan Peele’s “Get Out,” studios have been racing to make their own “socially aware” genre films. While most will miss the point completely, there’s one in the works that’s perfectly primed for a revival. Rusty Cundieff and Darin Scott‘s 1995 “Tales From The Hood” was hugely ahead of its time, putting an urban spin on “Tales From the Crypt” and sharing several stories in what is easily one of the best anthology films ever made. Now, 20 years later, it’s getting a much-needed sequel – on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital and On Demand on October 2, 2018.

“Tales from the Hood 2” introduces the audience to four new dreadful short tales, that follow the original film’s cult classic roots. Sparked with both humor and terror, this brand new movie is said to be filled with even more gritty social commentary and cultural subtext that will provoke and haunt viewers, while putting them on the edge of their seats.
