“Charm City Kings” Hits The Streets… And The Screens… This Coming April (Trailer)

Okay. OKAY!

Meek Mill making it work in the movies. Salute. And this “Charm City Kings” looks epic. Teaser showing snips from what should be a wild story to tell. Check it…

Fourteen-year-old Mouse (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) desperately wants to join the Midnight Clique, an infamous group of Baltimore dirt-bike riders who rule the summertime streets. His older brother, Stro, was their top rider before his tragic death—a loss that consumes Mouse as much as his passion for bikes. Mouse’s mom (Teyonah Parris) and his police mentor, Detective Rivers (William Catlett), work overtime to help the charismatic teen reach his full potential, but when the Midnight Clique’s leader, Blax (Meek Mill), takes the boy under his wing, the lure of revving his own dirt bike skids Mouse toward a road way past the straight and narrow.

Puerto Rican director Angel Manuel Soto (Dinner Party, 2018 New Frontier VR experience at Sundance Film Festival) returns to the Festival with this electric feature that pulses with teen gusto, thumping Hip-Hop, and amazing bike tricks. Soto directs an astonishingly talented cast to create a narrative bursting with pitch-perfect performances and intoxicating emotion. Based on the documentary 12 O’Clock Boys, Charm City Kings is one boy’s unforgettable journey toward manhood.

(AND Jada and Will Smith are helming this as Executive Producers?? Oh heeeell yeah!)

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.

50 Cent Enters Partnership To Produce An Animated Version Of The “Trill League” Graphic Novel (Trailer)

VERY interesting. Could this be a ‘move over Justice League‘ situation in the making? 50 is on fire with his studio production moves (which reminds me, the last episodes of “Power” just started Sunday… gotta get on that).

I saw a reviewer post a video on “Trill League” on YouTube and went looking for a trailer on an ‘official channel.’ This one above is as close as I could get to that. Looks like this teaser has been floating around on the Tube for years. Now, it’s getting ‘real.’

Trill League, an animated series based on Anthony Piper’s graphic novel, is a combination of superheroes, anime, and Hip-Hop culture. Piper is co-creating, writing, and executively producing the series with Jameel Saleem (Disenchantment, Whiskey Cavalier). The executive producers are 50 Cent and Jermaine Johnson of 3 Arts Entertainment, which is producing the series with 50’s G-Unit Film & Television in association with Lionsgate TV.

Okay, This Is REALLY The Final Season Of Marvel’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D” (Trailer)

… on ABC, at least. I am still holding out for a return to the storyline in some fashion on Disney+ or something. Why not? It was supposed to be a wrap last season, but ABC (owned by Disney) brought it back. Let’s keep bringing it back!

Counting Agent Phil Coulson from the Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, and Captain Marvel movies… who died and came back to life to eventually become the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. …only to die and return (sort of, at least in borrowed body form) as single-minded evil alien slayer ‘Sarge’… who bites it… THEN we get a new and improved good ole [Life Model Decoy, or LMD] Phil Coulson (thanks to ancient mysticism and super-futuristic sci-fi tech)… I mean wowwww! That Coulson has gotta be part cat with all those lives, right?

And I was and am still here for ALL of it! Come on Season 7. Hurry up!

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.
