TIFF’s In-Depth Conversation With Michael B. Jordan & Jamie Foxx Is Both Light-Hearted And Heavy (Video)

Man. Jamie was funny enough as the class clown to get the teacher to give him a weekly five-minute set AND keep some Crips laughing. And that’s just the top of the convo. Plus you can go on the career journey with Michael… killing the game #Killmonger

Hollywood megastars Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx are both at the top of their game. They first gained fame for roles on television: Foxx with In Living Color in 1991 and later The Jamie Foxx Show, and Jordan with his heartbreaking turn as Wallace in HBO’s The Wire. In 2013, Jordan made his major feature-film breakthrough in Ryan Coogler’s acclaimed Fruitvale Station. He has collaborated with Coogler on two more game changers: Creed, their acclaimed expansion of the Rocky saga; and the mega-hit Black Panther. In 2016, Jordan founded his production company Outlier Society in order to focus on more eclectic and diverse stories and voices. Outlier Society recently co-produced HBO Films’ Emmy-nominated adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, which netted Jordan a Producers Guild Award. Foxx is renowned for powerful lead performances in Ray, for which he won an Academy Award, Michael Mann’s neo-noir Collateral, and Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. TIFF proudly presents this conversation with two iconic artists and producers about their creative process, their desire to tell inclusive stories, and Just Mercy, their highly anticipated new film premiering at the Festival.

Best. “Black Panther” Teaser. Ever!! (Trailer)

Okay, so Wakanda is not real. But styling its geography, geopolitics, and people makes the “Black Panther” movie real enough to reward watchers for agreeing to suspend disbelief. In other words, we don’t feel stupid for believing in vibranium-fueled fights… in ancient hidden cities laden with high-tech… spaceship-looking flying back-and-forth… bustling cityscapes where many random vehicles, streets and buildings get wrecked…

If the storytelling is good, we will be here for it all. And from what this trailer is showing us, the storytelling is gonna be good.

Action-packed but so ‘real’ and so good! So really good it’s surreal!

Enjoy the trailer thoroughly.

Creed (Trailer)

Damn. I… DAMN! This is a great idea. All that is left is the delivery. What if we took the guttural energy of the “Rocky” franchise, put it in a movie, but not necessarily a sequel? How about a movie about a son – not Rocky Balboa’s, but Apollo Creed’s son – that we never knew about? That kid, could come up HARD, like his dad. Gravitating toward boxing, as a metaphor for a life rife with fights, this kid could be brash and indignant – just like his dad – but not like his dad. He doesn’t even have to like his dad; because he never knew his dad.

But he knew of his dad’s greatness… and his dad’s great in-ring nemesis and out-of-ring friend… the guy his dad trained to go next level [against Clubber Lang]… the guy who seconded in his corner the night his dad DIED in the ring…

The guy who would ultimately coach him to greatness. WOOOOO! Balboa teams with a Creed (played by Michael B. Jordan) again. Give him the damn red, white and blue shorts. LET’S GO!!!

Oh wait, it doesn’t come out until this Fall (November 25, 2015). In the meantime, watch this trailer for “Creed” – from the makers of [Jordan’s breakout biopic] “Fruitvale Station.” Please, Hollywood, PLEASE get this right.
