Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger Season 2 Premieres Thursday, April 4 On Freeform (Series Trailer)

I never like it when my shows take long hiatuses, esp. in the modern TV era when most networks’ shows break their seasons in half (like a series premiere, then a midseason finale, then a midseason premiere, then a season finale). Too much time away from the viewers. Out of sight, out of mind, out of a job.

But Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger had a pretty good premiere season. Hopefully, the long hiatus means a powerful second season is on the way. We will see next month!

Based On A True Story, “The Best of Enemies” Coming Soon To Theaters (Trailer)

Great casting choices – Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell – to portray two passionate, stubborn societal adversaries who would go through such dramatic challenges and changes in life.

THE BEST OF ENEMIES centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.

The Fresh Prince & His West-Philadelphia-Born-And-Raised ‘Bel-Air’ Story Retold As A Drama (Fan-Made Trailer)

Yooooo! If big-time producers could deliver this, today, you’d watch! Every week. And that line where Will says his life is NOT a sitcom… Oh, that is just scriptwriting GOLD! And the Meek Mill shirts are a dope touch.

What would happen if Will Smith made The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air today? Bel-Air, a story of a kid from Philly whose life got turned upside-down… in 2019.

A fan-made film.

Starring Jerry Madison as Will Smith.

Shout to Director/Cinematographer/Writer Morgan Cooper for this great concept & trailer!

The World Will Never Be The Same. ‘Brightburn’ Comes To Theaters This May (Trailer)

Of all the super-sci-fi-thriller…

I mean. At first, I wanted to smack the kid. Repeatedly. Then, seeing the trailer… it becomes VERY apparent… that that would VERY bad for my health #DeadAzz #KillerKid

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

The ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Debuts In Theaters April 12th (Redband Trailer)

Yeah, this “Hellboy” trailer had to be redband to really get the point across. Truth is, the snip with Hellboy and the sorceress making out in the bloodbath alone earns that stamp.

Yes. That is in there. Watch!

Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.

Debut Season Of “Doom Patrol” On The DC Universe Streaming Platform (Trailer)

Cyborg’s in there on the team, too. Cool!

New episode every Friday. Already started on February 15th.

DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

I’m catching up on this this weekend. I promise you. Looks like the storylines could go really far out there given this trailer!

The Latest Offering Of The X-Men Franchise, “Dark Phoenix,” Hits The Big Screen June 7th (Trailer)

Well, well. The old run of the ‘X-Men’ blockbusters starting around the turn of the century put out a take on The Phoenix Saga. But this version though… Maaaaan, LET’S GO!

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

After 10 Years Of Extraterrestrial Occupation, The Resistance Rises (Trailer)

Food for thought: That word ‘insurgency’ we hear in the news nowadays takes on a different meaning when WE are the insurgents, right? The colonialists that raised an army in America, eventually led by General George Washington… Brittain considered them insurgents (not ‘freedom fighters’ or the resistance that would ultimately give birth to the United States of America).

That said, I’m rooting for the insurgents in this “Captive State” trailer, and for the movie itself. Hope it smashes at the box office. Looks like some good popcorn chewing scarfing action!

Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, “Captive State” explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.

RaMell Ross’ Critically-Acclaimed Documentary On Black Life In The Rural South Debuts On PBS (Trailer)

Saw RaMell talking to Trevor on ‘The Daily Show’ about this. Oscar-nominated. Cool. Put the lens on being Black and from Alabama (raising my hand)… and it’s February (Black History Month). Word.

RaMell Ross’s “Hale County This Morning, This Evening,” one of the year’s most critically acclaimed films, is a dreamy and intimate journey through the world of Hale County, Alabama, a richly detailed glimpse into life in America’s Black Belt.

“Horror Noire” Explores How Black People Love Horror Movies, But Don’t Always Get Love Shown In Return (Trailer)

Yeah. Why do they do us like that? Why do we have to die so fast, at least in the older horror movies? We ain’t tripping…

(Really. That’s Becky-With-The-Good-Hair who always trips and falls when running from monsters & killers. She oughta die ASAP, right? Haaaa!)

Based on the acclaimed book of the same name by Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman, HORROR NOIRE takes a critical look at a century of genre films that by turns utilized, caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and embraced both Black filmmakers and Black audiences.

Featuring interviews with Ernest Dickerson (Bones), Rusty Cundieff (Tales from the Hood), Jordan Peele (Us), Tina Mabry (Mississippi Damned), Tony Todd (Candyman), Paula Jai Parker (Tales from the Hood), Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep), and Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman.

Gabrielle Union & Jessica Alba Are “L.A.’s Finest” (Series Trailer)

Interesting that this will be on Charter, a cable platform. Word on the Interwebs is that the pilot for this “Bad Boys” spinoff-for-TV series was passed on by NBC (which is owned by Comcast, a huge Charter competitor) first. Let’s see if ‘little bank’ can take from ‘big bank’ on this occasion.

Looks like a dope trailer, setting up ‘Syd’ (Gabrielle Union reprising her role as Martin Lawrence’s character’s sister from “Bad Boys II”) as the centerpiece for some good storytelling on the small screen.

From the universe of the Jerry Bruckheimer/Michael Bay “Bad Boys” franchise, “L.A.’s Finest” follows Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has seemingly left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history, Syd is forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret. Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules, and speed limits, Syd and Nancy become a force to be reckoned with – on the streets, and in each other’s lives.

The first three installments in the 13-episode series will be exclusively available to Spectrum video subscribers free On Demand (and without ads) on May 13, after which new episodes will release every Monday until the finale.

Debuting in 2019, Spectrum Originals is a premier destination for premium original series available exclusively to Spectrum video subscribers on-demand and ad-free. This free service will launch with the Sony and Bruckheimer-produced drama “L.A.’s Finest,” starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba. An initiative of Charter Communications, Spectrum Originals is the latest expansion of Charter’s market-leading video offerings, which include regional sports networks and its award-winning Spectrum News services. More information on Spectrum Originals can be found at www.spectrumoriginals.com/lasfinest.

Three Generations Of “Shaft” Are About To Hit The Streets? You Damn Right (Trailer)

Oh man hell yeah! This is gonna be dope. Different angle going heavy on the ‘non-cool’ “Shaft” descendant ‘JJ’ (John Shaft, Jr.) in this chapter. Looks like they kept the Black super-cool street justice vibe and amped the comedy. And kept the sexy… Wow! The sistas in this one (Regina Hall, too… nice look, even as a bitter babymama, ha!). Check out the trailer.

JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Jessie T. Usher), may be a cybersecurity expert with a degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ’s youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft (Samuel L. Jackson) agrees to help his progeny navigate Harlem’s heroin-infested underbelly. And while JJ’s own FBI analyst’s badge may clash with his dad’s trademark leather duster, there’s no denying family. Besides, Shaft’s got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that’s professional and personal.

And you see ‘Double R’ (Richard Roundtree) is still right in there with the sh!ts, too!

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!

Shorter than the first trailer. But just as much thrill chill (not easy chill, SCARY DISTURBING chill) jammed in there.
