[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.

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.

[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!

Power Rangers (@ThePowerRangers) Movie To Feature First Openly Gay & Autistic Superheroes!

power rangers movie cast

The movement for inclusion and representation of all types of people continues to make waves and break new ground. This time around the frontier moves beyond the superhero/action adventure genre in the upcoming Power Rangers movie.

Yep, one of the Power Rangers will become cinema’s first openly gay superhero, and another will be on the autism spectrum!

The news broke earlier today, much to the surprise of fans and moviegoers everywhere. “Trini Kwan,” the Yellow Ranger,  portrayed by Becky G., will apparently be a lesbian in the film, but a fledgling one, meaning she is just coming to realize and accept her sexual orientation. Meanwhile, “Billy Cranston,” the Blue Ranger, played by RJ Cyler is on the autism spectrum. This definitely falls in line with the film’s motif of the Rangers being outcasts and different in high school.

Power Rangers is breaking down a barrier no superhero movie has before. The Lionsgate reboot of the ’90s children’s TV show is the first big-budget superhero movie to feature an LGBT protagonist.

During Power Rangers‘ second act, there’s a scene in which the titular heroes learn that the Yellow Ranger, Trini (Becky G), is coming to terms with her sexual orientation, with one character assuming she’s having “boyfriend problems,” and soon realizing that perhaps she’s actually having “girlfriend problems.” It’s a small moment, but one director Dean Israelite calls “pivotal” for the entire film.

“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Israelite tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
