Janelle Monae is talent personified. Not only is she beautiful and a beast on the mic, this lovely lady is also one helluva actress. She is upping the ante with her acting skills now in a new genre–a thriller–“Antebellum!”

The film was created by the producers of “Get Out” and “Us” groundbreaking directors Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz (Bush+Renz) – riveting new voices in filmmaking. The film centers on a successful author, “Veronica Henley” (Monae) who finds herself trapped in a warped reality and must find a way to escape before it is too late!

Based on what we can tell from the teaser trailer, Veronica is reliving the life a slave in the Antebellum (the period of time before the American Civil War) South while being kidnapped in the present. The film plays on the fears of women being sex trafficked and kidnapped in ride share cars; and the fact that thousands of Black women are currently missing and there has been no investigation.

We are not sure how Janelle’s character will get through this, but it appears terrifying nonetheless. “Antebellum” makes it debut in 2020 and joins the growing trend of Black films in the horror/thriller genres. What do you all think of the trailer? Sound off in the comments section below!

6 underground

Ryan Reynolds is winning! Besides their inevitably being another “Deadpool” movie on the horizon when the Disney-Fox merger finally settles, he is starring into two other action films, “Free Guy,” and now, Netflix’s “6 Underground!”

Synopsis:
6 underground
What’s the best part of being dead?
It isn’t escaping your boss, your ex, or even erasing your criminal record.
The best part about being dead…is the freedom.
The freedom to fight the injustice and evil that lurk in our world without anyone or anything to slow you down or tell you “no.” 6 Underground introduces a new kind of action hero. Six individuals from all around the globe, each the very best at what they do, have been chosen not only for their skill, but for a unique desire to delete their pasts to change the future. The team is brought together by an enigmatic leader (Ryan Reynolds), whose sole mission in life is to ensure that, while he and his fellow operatives will never be remembered, their actions damn sure will.
This film sounds amazing and the trailer looks even more amazing. Hopefully this team of highly skilled soldiers and operatives will fare better than the last team a character Ryan Reynolds played and led (think X-Force from “Deadpool 2”) It gives us the same vibe as movies like “Renegades,” “A-Team,” or “The Expendables.” Netflix is really outdoing itself with its original films, and this looks as big budget as any action flick you might on The Big Screen.
Be sure to catch “6 Underground” this Friday on Netflix, Happy Viewing!

“Like A Boss” is definitely going to be one of the funniest and dynamic films of 2020. This cast is stellar, and the film comes off as “Girls Trip” meets “Bad Bosses!” Nevertheless, any film showing women in power and doing it big is a cause for celebration!

It has been a long time coming but we are only months away from the “Black Widow” movie! This standalone film will stand as a prequel of sorts falling in line between “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War;” detailing the origins of Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) herself! Marvel has finally released the first trailer for the film and it looks promising!

In the trailer we see Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, recounting her life as a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and an Avenger with cameos from Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) .

However, she now has to return to take Russia home of The Red Room, a secret organization that creates super spies/femme fatales just like Black Widow. It seems she is seeking the help of her “family” of Russian spies; a “sister”/fellow Black Widow, Yelena Belenova (Florence Pugh), Melina Vostokoff the Iron Maiden (Rachel Weisz), and Alexei Shostakovto the Red Guardian (David Harbour) to take them down.

The stakes seem to have been great, but we know she was ultimately success being that she (spoiler alert) only truly met her demise years later in “Avengers: Endgame” after sacrificing herself to claim the Soul Gem. We do, however, love seeing so many characters from her comic storylines. Red Guardian was actually her husband, but the Russian government tapped him to be their version of Captain America and dissolved their marriage. The Iron Maiden was trained similarly to Black Widow, but grew to hate living in her shadow and left Russia to become a freelance assassin and mercenary. Finally, Yelena was also code named Black Widow and has both a villian and ally to Romanoff.

Taskmaster

The villain of the film apparently is Taskmaster (rumored to be O-T Fagbenle), a villain with the ability to copy the movements and skills of anyone he has ever seen. This makes him especially deadly. In the comics he has taken on the Captain America’s shield throwing, Hawkeye’s archery, as well as the fighting style of a few Marvel Comics top hand to hand combatants.

We are hoping this film somehow will have a plot twist from “Avengers: Endgame” that allows us to resurrect Black Widow, similar to Gamora’s surprising return in the film. Black Widow has been such a staple of the Avengers films and the MCU as whole that we are not ready to let her go. Wasn’t losing Cap and Iron Man enough?
