“There was a time when interracial dating was a taboo practice that could lead to physical harm or even death. Today it seems to be of greater acceptance as with celebrity power couples Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or Ice-T and Coco. “The Swirl” takes a comedic look at this serious topic by digging into the cultural shift in attitudes around interracial relationships.” – Moguldomstudios
“The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin,” a documentary that chronicles the Bitcoin digital currency, debuts Wednesday at the Tribeca Film Festival.
“The film tells the story of Bitcoin, a revolutionary technology that’s changing the game of how money works. It takes you on a journey of how it all started and how it boomed, and highlights some of the early entrepreneurs and enthusiasts in the space that helped paved the way.”
- Nicholas Mross, Director
It’s big & it’s coming to SMASH into theaters May 16th. It’s the return of what is arguably the most iconic monster in the history of film. The return of Godzilla. There’s not much more that’s revealed involving the plot & storyline to this movie reboot other than it’s implied that Godzilla could quite possibly be tangling against a number of other monsters that may have been created due to man’s arrogance & scientific ignorance.
“An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.” – Legendary Pictures (Godzilla 2014)
After a couple of shorter trailers leading up to the Super Bowl, director Michael Bay & the makers of the fourth installment of the Transformers films give us more of the premise & of what we can expect when the new sequel hits theaters this summer. After viewing this trailer it appears this could be the darkest sequel of the Transformers movies that have up to this point grossed close to $3 billion dollars worldwide. Not only does the film appear to be grittier, but the fans will not find former lead actor Shia LaBeouf in the lead role in this one although producers have easily found a suitable replacement.
Mark Wahlberg plays a struggling mechanic trying to make ends meet to support his family when he makes a discovery in search for scrap auto parts. It turns out that one of the beat up vehicles he finds turns out to be Optimus Prime. There’s not much else given away in the storyline between the Autobots, Decepticons, & the adversarial government forces but from the trailer it’s clear the popular ‘Dinobots’ from the cartoon series will surface in the film. I’m looking forward to it when the film hits theaters June 27th.
The summer sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man film is set to hit theaters May 2nd. Things begin to change for Peter Parker when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
Marvel’s first Avenger returns this April 4th in ‘Captain America: The Winter Solder’. Chris Evans continues the lead role as Captain America, while actor Anthony Mackie makes his Marvel debut as ‘The Falcon’. A few notables from the Avengers movie also bleed into this film as Samuel L. Jackson is featured as well as the beautiful Scarlett Johansson who reprises her role as Natasha Romanoff aka The Black Widow. The new film picks up in Washington D.C. following the cataclysmic events that played out in New York during The Avengers movie with Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, trying to adjust to the modern world. Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of their new ally, ‘the Falcon’ to battle against an unexpected and formidable enemy-the Winter Soldier. This looks like it’s going to be good.
Ceasar is back this Summer 2014 with ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ which is the sequel to the modern day remake classic ‘Rise of Planet of The Apes’ in 2011. Look for ‘Dawn of The Planet of The Apes’ July 11, 2014….
“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.” – Dawn Of Apes
I’m looking forward to May 23, 2014 when Marvel’s upcoming “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” will hit theaters.
“The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.” – Marvel
We posted the UK trailer for the coming ‘Mandela’ movie earlier on here. Needless to say it was an incredibly short teaser of what’s to come. The film currently slated to be released November 29th seeks to chronicle Mandela’s life from his childhood in a rural village to his eventually ascent as the first democratically elected President of South Africa. Early rumors about the screenplay have the focus of the film to be on on Mandela’s younger days in South Africa. Nelson Mandela recently turned 95 after suffering a few life threatening health related issues so hopefully he will be with us when the world celebrates as the film hits theaters. Of course we posted the short version earlier, but now take a peek at the official ‘Long Version’ of the movie trailer.
‘Nothing is more twisted than the truth.’
True indeed. And nothing, in recent times, is more twisted than this movie from Spike Lee. His version of “OldBoy” is an interpretation of the original Korean flick by the same name. Here’s a Wikipedia passage on it:
‘The film follows the story of one Oh Dae-su, who is locked in a hotel room for 15 years without knowing his captor’s motives. When he is finally released, Dae-su finds himself still trapped in a web of conspiracy and violence. His own quest for vengeance becomes tied in with romance when he falls for an attractive sushi chef.’
The core of the story was maintained in the Spike Lee joint, with Josh Brolin as the imprisoned lead. So was the gore (the trailer hints at some of it). Yeah. Spike went there with this one.
Starring: Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen (twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s younger sister), James Ransone (from Spike’s “Red Hook Summer”), Sharlto Copley (the dude that played ‘Murdock’ in the “A-Team” movie).
Marvel is gearing up to release one of the most anticipated big budget movies of the summer. Here’s another brand new trailer for The Wolverine starring Hugh Jackman. In this particular trailer Jean Grey makes a brief appearance to setup the coming story of Wolverine’s trip to modern day Japan where he’s offered the gift of mortality & also does battle with the Silver Samurai among others. Looking forward to when it when ‘The Wolverine’ hits theaters July 26th.
Check out the third trailer to the upcoming ‘Man Of Steel’ film due to hit theaters June 14th….Some great actors involved with this project. Without teasing too much as to what’s coming in the film, at least in this trailer we find out what the “S” on his chest stands for. Looking forward to see what else the filmmakers have put together when the film hits theaters this summer.
Check out this new extended trailer for the upcoming big budget summer film starring Brad Pitt called ‘World War Z’. These new zombie flicks sometimes makes you wonder if Hollywood is getting us prepared for something that could actually happen. The premise of the film centers around Brad Pitt who plays a worker for the U.N. desperately trying to find out why an apocalyptic pandemic of zombie outbreaks are bringing down entire nations around the world. Before you laugh at the thought that any of this could be even remotely possible you may want to read about how countries like Russia are reportedly working on weapons that can turn people into zombies. Now that’s a possible horror story. World War Z hits theaters June 21st….

Marvel’s upcoming ‘Iron Man 3′ film starring Robert Downey Jr returning in the lead role as Tony Starks is slated to hit the theaters & here comes another interesting trailer to get us ready for the film. It’s expected that Don Cheadle is returning as Tony’s friend Jim Rhodes who wrecks havoc as the Iron Patriot suit but is that enough for Iron Man to defeat his latest foe? In this particular trailer I’m wondering if director Shane Black may have revealed too much in this new trailer as to HOW Tony Stark plans to defeat his nemesis the ‘Mandarin’. We’ll see when the film hits theaters May 3rd. Can’t wait!

Shout out to Will Feagins, Jr., who has directed many a hot music video we’ve posted on here. Now, the brother brings us “Change in the Game” – a documentary that ‘discusses some of the changes that have affected how Hip-Hop is created and received as well as factors that influenced those changes such as, technology, commercial success and the relationship between the artists new and old.’ Looks like its going to be a dope film indeed. If you want to be among the first to see it, come to Atlanta’s A3C Festival 2012 (follow the link to our prior post on A3C below), where the film will make its debut! Another reason to love Atlanta… and Hip-Hop!
