Marvel’s The Defenders (Series Trailer)

The full official trailer for “The Defenders” is here, and it is teasing a Netflix team-up series that is more badazz than any of the hero’s that comprise the team! Is that possible? Watch the trailer all the way down to that hallway fight where Luke, Jessica, Fist and Daredevil are kicking much azz and giving no damns about their names… Then YOU decide for yourself!

Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones). A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together. The Netflix original series will launch globally on August 18, 2017.

Not saying I don’t care what you think, but if you don’t think Marvel’s “The Defenders” is gonna be worthy, WE DON’T CARE! So.. haters can go binge ‘Scandal’ reruns or something.

Bill Nye Speaks On His Mission To ‘Save The World’ And On How Political Science Has Become (Video)

The hero we have been waiting for to return… It’s Bill Nye The Science Guy! He’s here to “Save The World” with not only the spread of scientific interest & knowledge, but apparently promoting a point of view. Science is political. You actually know that. Think about great socio-political battles we have fought. They have been over questions that put politics smack dab in the middle of what should be apolitical pursuits: When does life begin (e.g. pro life vs. pro choice)? Are slaves really people or something ‘less than’ that should be owned or controlled (e.g. pre- through post civil war, the battle for civil rights in courtrooms and on congressional floors)? And there is a ‘less uncomfortable’ (but no less important) battle that Bill mentions here… Is Climate Change (e.g. Global Warming) a man-made phenomena that we can/must stop?

As Flavor Flav would say, “We got some nonbelievers out there!” So the fight is on. Save us Science Guy… with KNOWLEDGE… not politics!

The Science Guy sits down with Bridget Carey to talk about his new Netflix show and the three biggest problems the world is facing.
– CNET

Great interview! Take away two things: (1) Most important, Bill is back, now on Netflix, AND (2) Bridget Carey is hella cute…had to be said.

Robert Glasper – “The Cross” feat. Lianne La Havas x Common

If Jesus died on the cross why I gotta carry it?
Common

Wow. The mark of good instrumentation… the levels to which it pushes accompanying vocalization. Like, just LISTEN to what that music Robert Glasper put down for “The Cross” pulls out of Lianne La Havas and Common. The singing. The lyrics!

Might have to watch that “Burning Sands” this weekend just because of this.

This song was written by Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins, and Common for the film “Burning Sands” on Netflix now!

In the 90’s one man ruled Hollywood with an iron fist. Sandy Wexler was not that man.
– Netflix

An ‘Iron Fist’ huh? Clever, Netflix, clever. And kudos, Adam Sandy, that Jennifer Courtney is some serious Eye Candy!

Naked (Netflix Trailer)

Mm mm mm. Why not have sexy azz Regina Hall waking up in the raw on the elevator though… because equal rights!! We’re here for you, Regina. WE support your right to bare(ness), even if Hollywood doesn’t (haaaa)! For seriously though, this trailer is like that Bill Murray “Groundhog’s Day” movie mashed into everyone’s worst wake up at school in your draws (or less) nightmare. What is it with that dream anyway?

When Rob Anderson (Marlon Wayans), a charming man-child, arrives in Charleston the night before he is about to marry the woman of every man’s dreams, Megan Swope (Regina Hall), he hasn’t written his vows, learned the steps for the first dance, or even remembered to bring the ring. Instead of taking care of his responsibilities, Rob goes out for a night on the town with his best man (Jonathan Todd Jackson). Then something unexpected happens… Rob wakes up naked in an elevator with no idea how he got there. When the elevator doors open Rob is shocked to find that it’s late in the morning and he has only one hour to get to the church or miss his own wedding. He tries desperately to get to the chapel, streaking through a city marathon, stealing clothes, avoiding capture by local police, a near death confrontation with a vicious motorcycle gang, and many other obstacles only to find himself waking up in the elevator again and again. Some unknown force has conspired to make Rob live this hour repeatedly until he finally grows up and becomes the man that his amazing fiancée deserves to marry. On Netflix August 11.

Netflix is winning. Ought to be hilarious!

War Machine (Netflix Teaser Trailer)

Dude. Getting that Netflix account (or ‘borrowing’ that sub from someone who loves you) is gonna be the MOVE! Box office beast Will Smith is already doing something for the bingers. Now, monster movie star Brad Pitt with this “War Machine” trailer comes to Netflix?

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist’s no-holds-barred exposé.
– Netflix US & Canada

Ha! Feels like some “Ocean’s Eleven” meets “Inglorious Bastards” energy in the trailer above. Just replace any goriness with snarkiness and you’ll get it. Better yet, play the trailer and wait for May like the rest of us.

Bright (Netflix Teaser Trailer)

Howwww biiiig is thiiis?! Son. Netflix got Will Smith. NETFLIX. Got. Will SMITH! When you take a star like Smith and put him in the space of Netflix, it’s really like smashing atoms in a star.

Dear White People (Series Trailer)

Okay, let’s start with the obvious about this “Dear White People” Netflix trailer… baby girl cute af! Oh, you thought ‘the obvious’ was the overt shot at White America that is the probable running theme of this series? NO. And if that offends you, I dare you to watch to the end and think about how MANY times White folks (esp. White college students) smear themselves and wear blackface. That’s in here, too. Think that might offend some of us?

Well if you don’t, or don’t get it, f**k yo’ feelings, esp. if you cancelled your Netflix subscription over this.

This is gonna be some aw-hell-naw kind of programming!

And yeah, this series is based off the movie of the same name. We posted on that years ago… here.)

Bill Nye Saves The World (Trailer)

Now that’s what we’re needing more than ever! Damn right, Bill Nye “Saves The World” and drops the science… AND the mic! With a White House and U.S. Congress that are sure to place ‘good business’ before good sense and what is good for the planet (note: good for the planet can be, and usually is, good for business), we need the return of Saturday morning Science to bring fun and knowledge to bear against all the anti-science out there.

Bill Nye – science guy, educator, mechanical engineer, and curator of curiosity – returns with a new show. Each episode of Bill Nye Saves the World tackles a specific topic or concept through lively panel discussions, wide-ranging correspondent reports from a crackerjack team, and Bill’s very special blend of lab procedure and sly personality.

Bill Nye Saves The World arrives April 21, only on Netflix.

Plus, look at all the guest stars that will be coming through. Score for Netflix. We’re ready for April already. Peep the trailer.

Barry (Netflix Teaser)

Not sure how Hollywood figured out that we’d need something a bit more palatable to wash away the nasty politics of the current U.S. Presidential Campaign. But then again, looking back, how could we not. At the very least, we’ve known and come to realize that a wildly popular – and by most accounts credible & and accomplished – President and First Lady were leaving the White House. We knew that there were no contenders to take up residence with the Obamas’ mix of composure, competence and charisma. That was sad enough.

And just when we thought we’d dug through the mud & sh!t and hit rock bottom, somebody threw down a jackhammer so we could dig for oil and bodies and get even nastier. Did you SEE the 3rd Presidential Debate? The candidates can’t even shake hands. But that phase is over now. Early voting has begun and the dust will settle after November 8th. Just in time for us to enjoy some farewell level good cinema.

Remember the future First Couple’s first date movie (“Southside With You”) we posted on here? Well, Netflix is bringing us another back, back in the day flick… talking about way back when Barack Obama was “Barry.” It won’t have as softened a tone as the aforementioned ‘date movie’ but viewers can draw strength knowing that even their President had it rough.

A young Barack Obama, known to his friends as “Barry,” arrives in New York City in the fall of 1981 to begin his junior year at Columbia University. In a crime-ridden and racially charged environment, Barry finds himself pulled between various social spheres and struggles to maintain a series of increasingly strained relationships with his Kansas-born mother, his estranged Kenyan father, and his classmates. Barry is the story of a young man grappling with those same issues that his country, and arguably the world, are still coming to terms with 35 years later. On Netflix December 16.

Check out the trailer above. Should be good watching.

13TH (Trailer)

Historical hooray for the 13th Amendment, right? Because it freed the slaves…right? But wait. Hold the Constitution a minute. What if the passage of the 13th Amendment actually gave way to 150 years of oppression of Black people? That’s what Ava DuVernay’s documentary “13TH” posits. And it’s not ‘what if’ rather ‘what it is.’ Watch the Netflix trailer above. Wow…

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary “13TH” refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.
