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.

Announcing The Commencement Of ‘The First Purge’ (Trailer)

This prequel is the story of how The Purge got started. Anyone notice drug-dealer-turned-resistance-leader Dmitri is played by Y’Lan Noel (from Issa Rae’s HBO series “Insecure”)? Cool, right?

The First Purge is doing something rare for horror franchises this deep in their run. Instead of playing it safe, it builds on the socio-political commentary from Election Year to drive home the ramifications of a government-sponsored extermination of marginalized peoples by the wealthy elite. And with our current combustible political climate, the franchise will continue to have ample material to evolve and reinvent a dystopian world that far too often hits close to home.
Ismael Abdusalaam, Imprintent.org

Interesting continuation of The Purge series’ violence-with-conscious-points. It’s out now. Go!

Michael Myers Will Hunt & Haunt You In Your Nightmares Because Of This ‘Halloween’ Reboot (Trailer)

Yeah! Several have tried it, but this version looks like it’s winning. Believe in the ‘boogie man’ that is Michael Myers when the 2018 “Halloween” version hits theaters in October! Got comedic actor Danny McBride and the producer of “Get Out” attached… plus the classic film’s OG Jamie Lee Curtis in there.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

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.

Meryl Streep & Tom Hanks Expose Government Corruption In “The Post” (Trailer)

In our society, the press is supposed to function as a ‘watchdog on government’… to ‘comfort the afflicted and afflict to comfortable’… a very necessary role. But we have seen, time and again, how that can be a very DANGEROUS role for those in the press; who have dealt with threats on their lives and livelihoods to keep us all up in OUR government’s business (because it is OUR business).

Watergate. Iran Contra. The baseless war in Iraq (to take out weapons of mass destruction that were NOT there)… scandals uncovered by the press. When they do what they are meant to do, reporters serve a critical role in our democracy; holding those in power accountable.

This is an homage to those in the press who did their duty, at great risk, back in the day. “The Post” is looking like another incredible movie that tells a compelling real-life story about what some key figures in the press went through to keep America (and the world) informed about what the government tried to keep covered up.

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in “The Post,” a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

Well, bring ’em out, bring ’em out, FOX! Let’s see if you got something to scream about when this hits theaters next April. Prediction: If this goes over well, the X-Men Universe will never be the same.

Watch The Final Teaser For “Geostorm” (Trailer)

Sending prayers to Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas, and all in the wake of the hurricanes and tropical storms. Much has happened in the way of natural phenomena attacking humanity where it lives since the first “Geostorm” trailer we posted. Of course, this epic enviro-thriller will take things extremely over the top, but it does kind of trigger feelings regarding our own dealings with nature’s wrath.

Okay, on with the trailer. One last look (trailer) before it hits big silver screens.

Action/Fantasy/Thriller: Natalie Portman Stars In “Annihilation” (Teaser Trailer)

The teaser doesn’t give much away about the story, but it might give you a case of the heebies and the jeebies (that ‘music’ though)! A little digging… so Natalie Portman’s character’s husband got into a spot of trouble in a spot that’s like a dark Narnia meets the Savage Land meets the Bermuda Triangle. Guess the rest of the story will come to us on or before 1st quarter 2018.

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, “Annihilation” stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (“Ex Machina,” “28 Days Later”).

‘Hunger Games’ Director Francis Lawrence Directs Jennifer Lawrence Again, This Time Starring As The “Red Sparrow” (Trailer)

From playing shape-shifting infiltration specialist mutant Mystique to ‘Hunger Games’ insurrectionist, it’s like Jennifer Lawrence’s roles have been a demo reel for a blood pressure-raising spy thriller like this. Especially when it is being directed by the same guy that helmed the ‘Hunger Games’ blockbusters, Francis Lawrence. Check out the trailer for “Red Sparrow” above. Looks like it goes sultry to gritty faster than 0-to-100… real quick!

Dominika Egorova is many things.
A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.
A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit.
A master of seductive and manipulative combat.

When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.

In Theaters March 2, 2018

AMC Screens “The Walking Dead” Season 8 Teaser At SDCC (Trailer)

Aw HELLLLLLL naw! That could NOT be all a dream. I will go on record saying how lame that would be. So, no, the nightmare world king of AMC Originals, “The Walking Dead,” was all real. I declare it!

(Okay, as real as a zombie series can get on TV. And after watching the Comic Con trailer above, you will see just how real sh!t can get!)

Watch The “Fear The Walking Dead” Season 3 Trailer Shown At SDCC 2017 (Trailer)

If you have not been keeping up with “Fear The Walking Dead” (or worse yet, have not gotten into the series)… It is okay. You have time to binge before it starts back up again. Get with your cable provider and get into the On Demand section. Watch some excellent zombie-genre television.

Now, that is my opinion and plea for you. But watch what the pros teased and lured San Diego Comic Con attendees with this year. Dope right?

Dave Bautista & Brittany Snow Are Trying To Make It Through Martial Law In ‘Bushwick’ (Trailer)

Martial Law in Brooklyn, New York. Sure, that’ll go down smoothly. Eff Sparta… This… Is… Bushwick! A lot of crazy with a promise built right into the trailer above that there is ‘no let up.’ So, we will see Dave Bautista do some more azz kicking outside the wrestling ring, on the big screen, sans any body paint.

(Well, does blood count?)

Ransom? Nah, Son! Kidnappers Try To Run From Halle Berry In “Kidnap” (Trailer)

You took the wrong kid!

YES! This looks like a lot of good buttery popcorn munching. Halle Berry going ‘mad mommy mode’ on some kidnappers that she is about to make PAY for taking her baby! Mad like ‘angry’ AND mad like ‘crazy’ at the same damn time!

Full disclosure: I see that the folks who brought us that screen trash they call “Transformers” are involved. So this could be a bunch of hollering and crashes and boom-boom-pow with no substance or discernable storyline. PLEASE let this be a movie with some heart that drives the drama – more “Armageddon” than “Ah, look at Megan Fox run, bounce and scream soooo sexy.”

(Because, no diss to ‘bouncy sexy women’ depending on that to ‘make’ the movie is turribull… it’s just turribull #BarkleyVoice)
