BLACKkKLANSMAN Movie Trailer Released (Spike Lee)
The first trailer for Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman has been released. Actually based on a true story (truth is stranger than fiction, after all), the film's narrative centers around Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American police officer in the city, who successfully infiltrates a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. To accomplish this, Stallworth partners up with Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), to be the face to his voice. Flip does face-to-face meetings as Ron, while Stallworth, putting on his "white voice", does business with the Klan over the phone. The operation was so successful, it saw Stallworth eventually become the chapter's head.
While ripe for potential drama, Spike Lee decided he was going with lighter fare. Footage from the film was showed at CinemaCon, where many attendees remarked that it was laced with humor and came off as more of a buddy cop film than anything too heavy. Get Out's Jordan Peele and Jason Blum are Lee's partners on the film, so look out for something interesting.
We need our black leading men and women to shine and if their movies don’t make money, they don’t get roles in the future, so take this L. Yea, I know. Still though.
In the case of Deadpool 2, the raunchy jokes, physical humor, movie references and Reynolds’ charm were all on display, but it still felt a little like someone else following a paraphrased recipe, hoping to capture the magic of the original chef and dish.

Her pioneering work as a woman in show business and her place in superhero fandom will live on. She will be missed.
On every level, this movie satisfies. Top notch action sequences, levity and emotional heft can all be found here. After Killmonger, and now with Thanos, it may be safe to say that Marvel's figured out its villain problem.
A movie that almost requires repeat viewing, Black Panther lives up to the hype in so many ways. Not the most action packed Marvel movie you'll ever see but still so full of excellence and power. A masterwork by director Ryan Coogler, Captain America: Winter Soldier may finally have been unseated as Marvel's best work.
One of the key things that make Black Panther so different from the vast majority of heroes in the pantheon, and especially in the MCU, is the fact that he is also ruler of a nation.
If you're older than 35 and are an avid Star Wars fan, this movie may unsettle you, or even upset you. It is very different. The themes of hope, light, darkness and the struggle between them are there and very present but many things, such as humor, diversity, and even style are different.
Every news outlet and their mother have been reporting that Disney is set to close a deal to buy Fox's film and television divisions for upwards of $60 billion and that sale will be final within days. Now, lots of people are talking about the hardcore negatives of monopolies and business-controlled markets, and that's all well and good, but you're here to read about Deadpool and the X-Men, among others, joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Just who is the character? Who the hell is Thanos? Let's talk about a little backstory for the character in the comic books. Thanos is an Eternal. Eternals are basically very powerful immortals with a huge and convoluted back story. Even amongst the Eternals, Thanos was considered a "mutant" because of the Deviant Syndrome.
