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.

A Look At Life “Across The Tracks” In The 1960s (Trailer)

Powerful story on racial identity: The way you see it, the way the world sees it, the way the way you see it changes as time goes on and the world changes… Wow.

If you could choose, which would you choose? Are you sure? This is SELF-examination time. Be sure to examine in context, too. This treatise always makes for compelling movie-making (ex: “Imitation Of Life”).

Two African American sisters grow up in racially charged 1960s Georgia, but one is born with fair skin. And when schools integrate in their small town, she decides to change her destiny – by passing for White.

A Powerful Cast, Including Queen Latifah And Jill Scott, Tells The Story Of The Water Crisis In “Flint” (Trailer)

Coming to Lifetime Television in a few days. Cannot believe this went on… is likely still going on. And it is NOT fake news. Hell, it is hard to imagine that this is real life sometimes. But this trailer is teasing a movie that tells the story as it should; with passion and high emotion. People HAVE to CARE when this happens; made to care, and care enough to DO SOMETHING!

“Flint” is the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation. LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt, “Breaking Bad”), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland, “Sneaky Pete”) and Nayyirah Shariff (Jill Scott, “Steel Magnolias”) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents. Golden Globe®-winner, Academy Award® and Grammy®-nominee Queen Latifah (“Star”) also stars and executive produces. World Premiere October 28 at 8/7c on Lifetime.

Christopher Meloni Stars In SyFy’s Original “Happy!” Coming To Starting December 6th (Trailer)

Well, would you look at this… Elliot Christopher Meloni Stabler from “Law & Order: SVU” has got himself another gig. Looks like a cross between “Roger Rabit” and “Sin City” – like those two flicks had a fling and abandoned the baby. And it grew up with no home training, unhinged and macabre af! Probably helps the aura of this movie; the fact that Meloni also starred in the very graphic “Sin City” sequel.

But enough of the past. This trailer is for “Happy!” (based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name). The series follows Nick Sax (played by Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hitman – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt).

Eljay Williams Presents The Soundtrack For His “Pathways” Movie (Mixtape)

Dope movies ought to have dope sounds associated with them, right? Yes. Like this “Pathways” flick. Good movie. Confirmed because the squad saw and approved (you should if you have not already). Now, for the tunes. Listennnn!

All music on this soundtrack either appeared in the film Pathways (Sean’s Lament), has been used to promote the film or has been inspired by the film. These are some of my favorite songs from some of the dope artists I know and were part of my backdrop while writing the film. These artists’ words and sound inspired me and I am grateful that they lent their talents to my dream. Thank you all.
Eljay Williams

Peep the trailer after the jump.
