Famous Impersonator Navi Takes On The Role He Was Meant For In ‘Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland’ (Teaser Trailer)

So Lifetime is gonna do The King Of Pop’s biopic. Interesting. Wonder if it will be more something for the fans, or really go into the never-talk-about parts of the ruler of Neverland.

Based on the best-selling book, Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days, and told through the eyes of Jackson’s trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. The movie will reveal firsthand the devotion Michael Jackson had to his children, and the hidden drama that took place during the last two years of his life.

Seeing that they got the guy who played Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) on AMC’s The Walking Dead. Looks like some good work by Jackson impersonator Navi in there, too. Looking forward to this movie. Check out the teaser above.

Star Trek: Discovery (First Look Series Trailer)

YES!!! Debuting on CBS television, then moving to CBS All Access, the first new Star Trek TV series in 16 years is on the way. Coming this Fall, Star Trek: Discovery! Full disclosure: I am VERY biased in favor of this series for three huge reasons: For one, because Star Trek. Second, there’s my major crush on star Sonequa Martin-Green (whose character went out like a G on AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ a few weeks ago). And then, yooooo, when Michelle Yeoh gives the order to ‘contact Starfleet’ because they have ‘engaged the Klingons’ … I got the same tingles when Captain Piccard (Patrick Stewart) delivered the classic line back in the day (“We have engaged The Borg”).

Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery. Now, one of the most iconic and influential global franchises returns to television with Star Trek: Discovery. The CBS All Access Original Series arrives this Fall.

Maaaan, I got two boners. Nerd boner. And, well, it’s almost noon, right?

Marvel Presents ‘The Gifted’ (Series Trailer)

Okay! So FOX is trying to eat off ‘superhero TV’ now. FX is on board for a second season of “Legion” – a show that leans on the door of the X-Men mutant universe. Now the big network of the FOX TV family is kicking that door in and sitting at the grownups’ table this Fall. They even have Bryan Singer at the storytelling helm. He’s the one who brought us those first Patrick Stewart x Hugh Jackman x Halle Berry X-Men! Here’s the series synopsis…

What tore them apart is what will bring them together. From Director Bryan Singer, and in association with Marvel Television, comes the all-new FOX series, “The Gifted.”

Action-adventure family drama “The Gifted,” from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Charlie Musselwhite & Nas Speak On The Music Of The 1920s And Of Today (Teaser Trailer)

They were rapping about street life and gangsta life…
Nas, Speaking On “On the Road Again” By Memphis Jug Band

A great look for PBS, this episode of “American Epic Sessions” features Charlie Musselwhite (of Memphis Jug Band) and Nas. That line from Greg Nice comes to mind: This is how we take the old to the new. Hear Nas speak on the timelessness and relevance of Musselwhite’s music. And see a bit of the performance of Nas’ cover of “On the Road Again”

(Hip-Hop flavor from the 1920s. Cool!)

Maya Angelou: ‘And Still I Rise’ (Trailer)

Miss Calypso? Really?! Wow…Had no idea. And it’s a good bet there will be much more stuff many of us did not know about the late great Dr. Maya Angelou in the forthcoming “And Still I Rise” feature. Watch the trailer above.

Dr. Maya Angelou’s legendary writings including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Phenomenal Woman and On the Pulse of Morning are merely a few examples of how words can truly change the world. Although she is most well-noted for her poetry, Maya Angelou and Still I Rise celebrates her multiple talents including singing, dancing, filmmaking, academia and civil rights activism, how she inspired generations, pushed boundaries and never ceased in her long fight for freedom for all. Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack’s extraordinary film seamlessly weaves the key messages of her poetry into the narrative of her life with rare archival footage, interviews and of course, recitals of her original works. Powerful, proud and prolific, Angelou’s story is one of true courage and creativity of a woman who fought for her beliefs and lived life to the fullest.

The Dark Tower (Trailer)

Watching this trailer had us like, “Interesting,” until Elba’s character loaded his gun barrels by snatching falling bullets out of the air into the chambers… Then it was like, “F**K THAT! WE’RE IN!”

The Making Of “Strength Of A Woman” (VH1 Trailer)

Watching the trailer for “The Making Of: Strength Of A Woman” (debuting on VH1, May 2nd at 11pm EST) you get a sense that Mary J. Blige is laying it all on the line in a few ways. First, she mentions a couple of times that this “Strength Of A Woman” project she is dropping is about healing herself; sharing her struggles, not prescribing or preaching for anyone else. That more than infers a second; Mary putting her business all the way out there (which she has done before, but that “that’s my Becky With The Good Hair” line implies some SCANDALOUS storytelling is in store). Third, The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul declares that this LP is the ‘real Mary‘… almost like a love-it-or-leave-it decision point will be laid out for the fans who cop. Risky, but hey, it’s Mary J; so folks will likely love it.

Now, we’d be pound foolish not to mention the coup of leveraging Mary’s brand in pushing an ‘album documentary’ timed around the release of “Strength Of A Woman” on VH1 where her target audiences (longtime fans of hers AND longtime fans of reality show level DRAMA) will be watching. Plus, peep all the contributors’ cameos, from Diddy to DJ Khaled.

There’s a reason the Queen is the most powerful attacking piece on the board. The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul is on the move, starting with tomorrow’s release of “Strength Of A Woman” followed by this tell-everything documentary on May 2nd.

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger (Series Trailer)

Good move for Marvel for 2018: Push further into TV. DC is doing it… very well… on The CW (Supergirl, The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow, Arrow) and Fox (Gotham). Five shows to Marvel’s one-and-a-half (Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Legion counting as a ‘half’ for now).

(Plus, Marvel is already RULING all on Netflix. Maaaan!)

American Assassin (Trailer)

Oh ho hooooo sh!t!!! Sometimes a kill-people-that-need-to-be-killed movie is the way to start a kick-azz weekend. Sometimes most of the time. In September… it’ll be one (or more) of those weekends! But today, you can start your weekend with this trailer.

AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.

Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock (Extended Trailer)

The fight is still on, just not on your TV any more. Like most relevant revolutions… not televised. So what are the Sioux still beefing about over there? Pipelines for certain. But “Awake” goes deeper; telling the story of Native-led defiance that forever changed the fight for clean water, the environment and the future of the planet. You know, ‘trivial’ pursuits like that.

Guess this is not worth the mainstream (or those who say they are not mainstream) media’s air time, huh? Good thing for this documentary.

Beatriz At Dinner (Trailer)

Whoa! That part at the end. Where Salma (sexy as HELL even dressed ‘all the way down’) told that chick, “You don’t know me.” That was too real. Like just the other day almost-said-to-coworker real!

Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a spiritual health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire real estate developer. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.

And wowwww… Don’t know Lithgow as a person, but playing THAT much of an azzhole in this movie HAD to take WORK (one hopes, even though there are some mega-anuses out here in ‘real life’ – real talk).

“Beatriz At Dinner” hits the theater screens June 9th. Watch the trailer above.

Detroit (Trailer)
