“EQ 2” Shoots Down Box Office Competition & Shondaland Lands at Netflix :Black Hollywood Wrap Up




by Ms. Black Hollywood

Denzel’s “Equalizer 2” #1 With a Bullet in Weekend Box Office   Denzel Washington has proven time and time again that he’s a sure thing on the big screen.  He proved that again with his first-ever sequel to the hit “The Equalizer”.ss  The sequel was projected to come in second behind another hit sequel “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”, but the pundits were wrong this time.  “The Equalizer 2” upset projections to this week end by opening to an estimated $35 million.  Even though “Mamma Mia” has a larger star-filled cast, experts say Washington’s sequel appealed to a more ethnically diverse group of moviegoers with Whites buying more tickets than Blacks.  A Sony spokesperson attributes the movie’s vast appeal to both Washington’s star power and  pairing him up with director Antoine Fuqua.  The movie franchise is a reboot of the TV series about Robert McCall– a retired government operative who finds himself back on the job helping people who have nowhere else to turn.  Claiming the top spot at the box office two weekends in a row may prove to be an impossible mission when “Equalizer 2” goes up against Tom Cruise’s return as Ethan Hunt in “Mission Impossible: Fall Out” on July 27.

Shondaland …More Like Shondaworld After New Netflix Deal   If this were a TV series, it would be titled ‘The Anatomy of the Scandalous Way to Get Away With Murdering Everybody Else in TV Production.’  It’s long, but accurate when talking about powerhouse producer Shonda Rhimes.  The acclaimed producer has eight(count ’em-8!) new original shows in the works over at streaming giant Netflix.  The only thing more impressive than 8 is 9…which is the number of figures in the deal Rhimes signed to move from ABC over to Netflix.  The woman who made Olivia Pope(“Scandal) and Analise Keating (How To Get Away With Murder) household names has a whole arsenal of new characters she hopes will blow audiences away.  Rhimes says don’t expect to see a carbon copy of her ABC shows on Netflix.  One of her shows is based on a real life grifter, another focuses on sexism in the tech world of Silicon Valley and another on the African Americans fleeing Jim Crow laws of the South. Rhimes isn’t just making money moves, she’s got a goal in mind.  Her ambition is to grow her Shondaland Productions under the Netflix umbrella into something huge the way Marvel Studios has expanded into a universe over at Disney.

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Reboot Is Going to Slay Viewers  It’s hard to believe it’s been two decades since Sunnydale’s Scooby gang dusted vampires and tackled every big bad the hellmouth conjured up.  If shows like “Hawaii 5-0” and “Will & Grace” can be resurrected to killer ratings, then certainly a show about a teen girl whose job is to kill monsters  can get a shot at a second life.  The original show’s creator Joss Whedon has apparently been looking for a new passion since leaving Marvel Studios after directing “The Avengers” and a few of the sequels, so he looked to where it all kind of got started to start again.  No one’s been cast as of this writing, but don’t look for the heroine of this reboot to be the blonde, White girl.  Whedon wants to make the new slayer a Black female.  Some diehard “Buffy” fans are already grumbling about the reboot “racebending” the title character.  Whedon says he simply wants a reboot of the show to be more “inclusive” this time around.

For this week’s look at what’s new and upcoming in Hollywood, that’s a wrap!

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

    I believe everything posted was very logical. However, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier post title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t good, however suppose you added a headline to
    possibly get folk’s attention? I mean “EQ 2” Shoots Down Box Office Competition & Shondaland Lands at Netflix :
    Black Hollywood Wrap Up – The Reel Network is kinda
    plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create
    news headlines to get people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited
    about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    I wonder if Mara Brock Akil is jealous of Shonda Rhimes. Shonda is making multi million dollar deals while Mara hasn’t done much since she plagiarized the book Interceptions and created the tv show The Game.
