[VIDEO] Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) Documentary set for June Release!

chris brown

“Welcome To My Life…” That is the name of Chris Brown’s documentary set for release this June. As you recall the singer/rapper/dancer teased news of a documentary about a year ago (you can see it by clicking here) and now a trailer has been released. Check it out below:

The trailer looks amazing and truly nostalgic. We get to stroll down to seemingly simpler times when Chris was the artist we all knew and loved. He had the potential to be the greatest entertainer on the planet and somehow, somewhere he lost his way. Eerily his shortfall sounds like Michael Jackson’s in the “not getting to have a childhood” arena. However, and unsurprisingly, we had no idea he was ever suicidal. Even more riveting are the labels attributed to him like “misogynist” and “violent.” This documentary goes there and we aren’t talking about Degrassi!

We definitely think a documentary on Breezy is definitely overdue. Over the last few years his life, career, and talent have been marred and overshadowed by controversy. Whether it is the lingering domestic violence, a restraining order from Karrueche Tran, or some mishap with a random woman or camera man as of earlier this week.

What do you guys think of Chris Brown’s documentary? Will you be tuning in? Sound off in the comments’ section below.

When you think about having a need for speed and animated movies, there’s only one Pixar– film that should come to mind.

That’s right everybody the “Cars” film franchise is back for another installment and this time, we’re putting ladies first!

Cars 3

Cars 3

According to a film synopsis of “Cars” given to the masses by Pixar Studios:

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!

Of course, Owen Wilson will be back reprising his role as Lightning McQueen but for this third installment, we’re adding a couple other movie big shots to the roster. Kerry Washington, Bonnie Hunt, Lea DeLaria and Katherine Helmond are just a few of the ladies joining the already star studded cast. I love that they’re adding diversity to a film that centers around such a male dominated sport.

Deuces centers on a drug dealer of the same name, played by Larenz Tate. The man is a virtual drug lord who has his city on lock, earning him the ire of the local law enforcement and envy of those around him. Lance Gross is “Jason,” a new hustler on the streets trying to infiltrate Deuces’ crew. However, trust is a rare commodity as the heat intensifies on Deuces and his crew, putting the city’s most notorious criminal in an increasingly more dangerous and desperate spot. Check out the trailer below!

We definitely are feeling the hell out of this film!  The trailer looks amazing. Hopefully it will be picked up as a series as Netflix can never have too many original series. Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Productions  is definitely making some major moves! Thanks to Larenz’s role in the upcoming fourth season of Power, and Rotimi’s appearance on this film, however, you get a feel of Starz’ hit seriesThe cast of this film is what really draws you in, however. Rick Gonzalez, Meagan Good, La La Anthony, and Rotimi are amazing actors, and we cannot wait to give you a full review of the film. Flavor Unit’s deal with Netflix may very well usher in that Living Single reboot we have all been clamoring for! Only time will tell. Just be sure you tune in tomorrow April 1st!

[VIDEO] 5 Things You Missed In The New “Justice League” (@justiceleaguewb) Movie Trailer!

justice league movie poster

What is currently trending at #1 on the internet? Warner Bros/DC’s official movie trailer for the upcoming Justice League movie!

Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman are banding together to face off against an otherworldly attack. Yes, you were probably expecting Superman to be among their ranks, but do not forget he was “killed” in last year’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice after helping to defeat Doomsday.

The trailer has been met with rave reviews, with many fans feeling Warner Bros. may have finally gotten things right with their budding DC Cinematic Universe. Still, unless you are a true fanboy/fangirl there are a few things you may not recognize or have known from the trailer. Well, rest assured we have your backs and are going to educate you in a little comic “geekdom!”

The “Death” of Superman

As we mentioned Superman was seemingly killed in his battle with Doomsday, but avid comic book readers know he was only injured so badly he fell into a coma and his vitals could not be detected by conventional Earth technology. Thus, eventually The Man of Steel will return to life. This is confirmed by the appearance of Amy Adams as “Lois Lane,” and from the angle she is looking up at she may be seeing a bird or plane–or Superman!

Amazing Movie & Awesome Cast! Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) FOREVER!

Lionsgate knew it had a hit on its hands when it greenlit the reboot for Saban’s Power Rangers movie.

This film plays off our nostalgia for the simpler, cooler time of 1992 when “five teenagers with attitude” were granted amazing powers and even more amazing costumes and vehicles (Zords) to save the world from the evil sorceress, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Flash forward twenty-five years to the rebooted film and Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Zack (Ludy Lin), Billy (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G), and Kimberly (Naomi Scott) are still teenagers, but rebels and outcasts as well. We officially have “The Breakfast Club meets super-heroism” in the latest addition of Power Rangers!

power rangers movie cast

Much of the series is the same. The Power Rangers are still defending Angel Grove, they still have their dino-themed zords (The Tyrannosaurus, Mastodon, Triceratops, Sabertooth Tiger, and Pteradactyl), Zordon, and Alpha 5. However, Rita, Goldar, and the Putty Patrol are bigger, badder, and deadlier than ever. This time around the The Power Rangers are a freshly chosen team of recruits brought together by mischief and happenstance rather than true friendship. Just as they learn of their amazing new powers, Rita Repulsa, a former Ranger a resident villainess, has been reanimated a hungry for the power of The Zeo Crystal; a rock that apparently ceded Earth with the ability to create life. It is up to the Rangers to overcome their own insecurities and teenage angst to stop Rita from retrieving the crystal and destroying all life on Earth.

“Tale As Old As Time…” Disney’s “Beauty & The Beast” (@beourguest) Is EPIC!

beauty and the beast movie poster he

Disney has truly found itself a new niche with these amazing live action films over the last few years.

Maleficent definitely led the way, but the company’s current live action feature, Beauty and The Beast takes the cake!

This film is nothing short of epic and does an amazing job of adapting the original animated film to a live action format!

The film is based on Belle (Emma Watson), a “funny girl,” and inventor who shares her love for art, learning, and invention with her doting father, Maurice. Belle tires of her “provincial life” in her little village where everything is the same day to day. She longs for adventure and something more than a regular life. Beautiful and intelligent, her attributes earn her the affections of the arrogant and narcissistic village “hero,” Gaston (Luke Evans). However, Belle soon gets more than what she bargained for out of life when she finds her father has been imprisoned by The Beast (Dan Stevens) and selflessly takes his place. Whereas Belle sees herself as his prisoner, she is single-handedly the last best hope The Beast and his servants have to regain their humanity.
