That’s John Boyega, dude from ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ No light sabers in this one, but no less compelling a story… Plus, it’s real.
From the Academy Award winning director of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY, DETROIT tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of ‘67.
Check out the trailer for “Detroit” (in theaters August 4th).
Okay, Cap and Falcon found Bucky… not The Winter Soldier… good ol’ Bucky! So, all’s well and we can hug and go home right? Aw hell naw. All HELL is about to break loose! Can you say love at first sight? The Captain America side of the Marvel Universe movies has always put incredible stories and action up on the big screen, and it looks like this “Civil War” installment will not disappoint on that front! Cap and Iron Man going IN… on each other? War! And is that Black Panther?? RAW!
Check out the trailer above. And do not make ANY other plans for May 6, 2016.
We posted the Red Band trailer for “Triple 9” a while back. Now as the February 19, 2015, theatrical release date approaches, we get the UK trailer for the film. Watch that above.
When a crew of dirty cops is blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute a virtually impossible heist, they realise the only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down”. The chaos that ensues when a police officer is shot in the line of duty is just the diversion they’ll need to do the job, but whether they have the will to kill one of their own is an entirely different matter. Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck, action packed finale tangled with double-crosses, greed and revenge.

The ‘redband trailer’ part pretty much means this clip is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). But since there is bloodshed AND nudity, perhaps an extra warning label is warranted. Scheming, betrayal, organized crime (international even), overt sexuality, explosions, and adrenaline rush car chases and action sequences. Check, check and all boxes check. Still, there seems to be an intriguing story.
See… corrupt cops get pulled into doing organized crime by a Russian mobster. A core element of their seedy plans was to be the killing of a rookie cop; you know, to throw good cops off their trail. And that’s where the story really gets started.
Due out February 2016. Now we know there will be more than DC Comics movies to watch in theaters next year.
(By the way, ‘9-9-9’ is the code for “officer down.” Now the “Triple 9” title of the movie makes sense.)
The Shadow League Gets Some Screen Time with Anthony Mackie Discussing His Role as ‘The Falcon’ In “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (Video)
The second, action-packed installment of the Captain America series, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Robert Redford (Alexander Pierce). In this exclusive video interview with The Shadow League, Anthony Mackie (playing Marvel’s first Black superhero, Falcon) discusses working with Jackson, Redford, and the tireless work and payoff that will come in simply seeing little boys dressed as Falcon for Halloween.
Updating the original comic book storyline of Falcon’s Harlem hustler roots, in this screen version Mackie is a standout DC soldier. Thirsty and hungry for something new, he finds himself pulled into Captain America’s cavalry while on the run from the super assassin, Winter Soldier.
That’s right. Grantland Channel lands the interview with ‘Falcon’ off the ‘Captain America’ sequel hitting theaters tomorrow. Good convo.
Actor Anthony Mackie talks about his new life as a superhero and the perks of being in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’ He also remembers long days on the set of ‘The Hurt Locker’ and talks about who he would partner with, were he to do ‘True Detective.’

Based on these recent trailers, I believe ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ will be better than the 2011 debut ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ film from Marvel. In this sequel due April 4th, respected actor Anthony Mackie appears to be an excellent choice to play the role of Captain America’s friend & Marvel superhero… ‘The Falcon.’ Check the storyline below as well as another new trailer after the jump…
“After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.” – Marvel
I agree with Anthony Mackie wholeheartedly. Why do African-American filmmakers, producers & other people in the industry keep begging the film industry for acceptance. It’s the same problem in the music industry where everyone doesn’t want to support quality work, but the focus on is solely on getting paid. Marcus Garvey said it best that we have to do for self.
