“BlackkKlansman”, “SuperFly” Reboot and An Alien Invasion: First Reel Look

Published

on

“BlackkKlansman” Based on a True Story   From the man who brought you “Get Out” comes another story that will change the way you view race relations.  Jordan Peele teams up with another director whose films opened our eyes about  race in America, Spike Lee for the movie “Black Klansman”. The movie website says, “THE EXTRAORDINARY TRUE STORY OF THE AFRICAN AMERICAN POLICE OFFICER WHO WENT UNDERCOVER TO INVESTIGATE THE KKK.” The dramedy was co written by Lee based on the autobiography of Ron Stallworth. John David Washington stars as Stallworth–a Colorado Springs detective who infiltrates the local KKK and eventually rises to become the head of the local chapter.  The film also stars Adam Driver(“Star Wars”) and actor/singer/civil rights activist Harry Belafonte makes an appearance.  So far, the film is a success with critics earning a 96% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  The site’s critics say, “BlacKkKlansman uses history to offer bitingly trenchant commentary on current events — and brings out some of Spike Lee’s hardest-hitting work in decades along the way.” Accompanied with the Temptations hit “Ball of Confusion”  providing filler commentary about the tone of the movie, the trailer has the tagline “Dis joint is Based upon some fo’ real, fo’ real sh*t”— we can’t even argue with that point.

“Black Klansman” hits theaters August 10.  Until then, here’s your First Reel Look at “Black Klansman”

Mike Coulter Joins Michael Peña to Save The World  If aliens are invading earth, it’s a good thing Marvel’s Luke Cage lives here.  After two seasons of fighting to defend Harlem, Netflix “Luke Cage” star Mike Colter is broadening his horizons and calling on another Marvel hero’s sidekick  who steps up to  the lead role to help save the day.  “Ant Man’s” Michael Peña co-stars in the  new sci-fi flick “Extinction”.  Peña has little time for wisecracks in this role as he plays a man on a mission after recurring nightmares in which he foresees the destruction of the world from an alien invasion. As his visions begin to come true, Pena’s character awakens to an unknown strength he has that could keep his wife and kids safe from harm and may be the key to saving the planet.   “Extinction” streams on Netflix July 27th.  Until then here’s your First Reel Look at the apocalyptic thriller “Extinction.

“Superfly” Reboot Hopes to Make a Fine Buy for Moviegoers Vanity Fair says a reboot of the blaxploitation hit “Superfly” couldn’t come at a better time saying “A vulgar, truth allergic man is president. America is hamstrung by governmental scandal, unwinnable war, epidemic drug abuse, and racist police brutality.”  That was the backdrop in which the original 1972 film was released.  It starred Ron O’Neal as a cocaine dealer needing to make that final big score before quitting the life permanently.  Vanity Fair says half a century later and not much has changed to usher in the reboot.  Director X (Julien Christian Lutz) says he wanted to remain true to the original source material and “The hair, the cars, the music, the women-I didn’t want to leave anything out…”  But some things had to change–instead of peddling drugs on Harlem streets, 21st century Priest Youngblood walks the streets of upscale Atlanta.  Playing the lead role in this reiteration is Trevor Jackson(“Eureka”, “American Crime”) who is still looking to get out of the life of crime after he is attacked by a rival dealer. “Superfly” opens in theaters nationwide July 15.  Until then, here’s your First Reel Look at “Superfly”.

    Do not watch the stupid movie Superfly. That movie is just as offensive as the movie Soul Plane.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t “Superfly” rebooted years ago with Snoop Dogg as the movie title character? I’m sure this version would be just as good, if not better than the last reboot or the original.
