Time Travel Flick “See You Yesterday” Comes To Netflix (Trailer)

So this is how Spike Lee does sci-fi. Compelling concept: Time travel flicks often involve the main character(s) going back in time to right a wrong… but a police killing… that’s gonna hit home for us. Yep, Netflix’s latest Spike Lee joint might be its latest hit!

High school best friends and science prodigies C.J. and Sebastian spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. But when C.J.’s older brother Calvin dies after an encounter with police officers, the young duo decide to put their unfinished tech to use in a desperate bid to save Calvin. From director Stefon Bristol and producer Spike Lee comes “See You Yesterday,” a sci-fi adventure grounded in familial love, cultural divides, and the universal urge to change the wrongs of the past.

Will Smith Plays A Dual Role In “Gemini Man,” Coming To Theaters This Fall (Trailer)

So kind of like that movie “Looper”Will Smith vs. younger Will Smith in this sci-fi action drama.

Watch the new trailer from visionary director Ang Lee, starring Will Smith. “Gemini Man” is in theatres October 11th, 2019.
– Paramount Pictures

Ang Lee? “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” Ang Lee? Well, the production quality should be top-notch. Just hoping the storytelling doesn’t get too ‘lofty’ (which was the knock on his version of “Hulk”). Looks like some good watching given the trailer.

Action Flick “Anna” Set To Kick A** In Theaters This June (Trailer)

“Anna” is gonna kill it (because she’s an assassin, get it?). Off topic but sort of not… That restaurant fight scene in the trailer feels like a scene that should be in a Marvel ‘Black Widow’ movie (if they ever get it together and make one).

“Joker” Comes To Theaters This Fall (Trailer)

Whoa, Zazie Beetz (with your fine self)… you are in the MARVEL Universe… why the jump to a DC origin story? Actually, though, this looks pretty dope. Good casting and compelling storytelling; let the trailer tell it.

There will be immediate comparisons to Heath Ledger’s (RIP) “Joker” to be certain.

Famous Last Words: Let’s Hang Out At “Ma’s” (Trailer)

Maaannn, these kids get everything they want and a lot of what they don’t. Kids will be kids… who will end up dead… messing with Ma… and NOT following her rules!

Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe.

Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.”

But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty And The Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart Of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Books To Big Screen: Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark Comes To Theaters This Summer (Trailer)

How are they just gonna try sneak flipping the sweet “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” song from ‘Wizard Of Oz’ into like the evilest eeriest theme music ever?? Wow.

From the dark imaginations of Academy Award®-winner Guillermo del Toro and acclaimed director André Øvredal, based on the iconic book series, comes Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark — in theaters this summer.

It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time—stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home.

Action Anti-Hero Flick “El Chicano” Comes To Theaters May 3rd (Trailer)

Dope! This is like the way Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. retold the Ghost Rider character’s story… crossed with some elements of ‘The Equalizer’ and Marvel’s The Punisher. Make way for the Latino Frank Castle aka The Ghetto Grim Reaper aka El Chicano!

When L.A.P.D. Detective Diego Hernandez is assigned a career-making case investigating a vicious cartel, he uncovers links to his brother’s supposed suicide and a turf battle that’s about to swallow his neighborhood.

Comedy: “Kevin Hart: Irresponsible” Coming To Netflix This April (Trailer)

Okay. So it looks like Kevin is gonna talk about his marriage scandal… pretty bold. But then again, when he got a grip on things he talked about his first marriage’s end candidly; on and off stage. Being able to speak on what most would think should be ‘too personal’ kinda makes a comedian ‘bulletproof’ right? But I remember his cheating and getting caught on tape was off limits (re: his friend Michael Blackson’s comments on the scandal hitting Kevin too close to home when word first got out).

Back on stage. Back to business. On April 2, Kevin Hart brings his sold-out comedy tour, Irresponsible, to a global audience for his first original Netflix standup special. The one-hour special was filmed in front of a sold-out audience of over 15,000 people at the O2 Arena in London, England. Hart touches upon his friends, family, travel… and a year filled with Irresponsible behavior.
– Netflix

Trailer looks funny. Get that Netflix paper then, Kev!

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.
