History is truly the story of mankind at large. It marks our greatest triumphs and our darkest tragedies. One of the greatest moments in human history occurred during the sixties, when after centuries of slavery, and decades of legalized discrimination, segregation was outlawed and African-Americans dared to fight for the right to vote.

The battleground was Selma, Alabama on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. On one side were Civil Rights leaders and the other state troopers, determined to stop their fifty mile march/protest from Selma to Montgomery.

 

Selma Movie (1)

The movie, Selma, documents the events surrounding the historic march; told from the point of view of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo), and based on FBI files declassified during the passage of the Freedom of Information Act. The film showcases his struggle with nonviolence and the brutality committed against those who dared to share his dream. You have seen the old footage of dogs, brutal cops, water hoses, and bodies in the street; but you have never seen it like this. Every scene of murder, violence, and oppression will make your eyes water–sometimes with rage–at what thousands endured so that future millions would have a better life. In addition to a history recap, you find out some interesting in information about The Kings and the current whereabouts of those (good and bad) involved in  Bloody Sunday and the March On Montgomery in Selma. Directed by Ava DuVernay, and produced by Oprah Winfrey, this film will do more than touch your heart, it will empower and embolden it!

I rarely get emotional over films. However, with the current and growing racial crisis stirring in our country this movie could not have come at a better time. Until the last two years, we all lived in a bubble of what was perceived uneasy, but accepted racial equality and felt relatively safe. Now we are reminded that now, just like then, injustice is always present and must be always fought. Take your children, drag your friends, organize your church members. Selma  is coming and things just will not be the same again!

You can catch Selma in theaters in limited release on Christmas Day; and in theaters everywhere on January 9, 2015.

This first trailer for the film is dark and bleak, as you would expect it to be from heroes are now grieving and desperate. Thanos handed them their first true defeat and now they are out for his blood. Iron Man is adrift in space and Cap is rounding up forces for revenge! We love the darker outlook, it makes us wonder just what it will take for our heroes to defeat Thanos and restore the universe to some sort of order. Hawkeye’s return and his somber expression tells us his family did not survive, and there are so many questions we have about how Ant-Man managed to get out of the Quantum Dimension? When we last saw him in the post-credits of Ant-Man and The Wasp he was left stranded there when Janet Van Dyne, Hope Van Dyne (Wasp), and Hank Pym were all wiped out in Thanos’s cosmic-level genocide.

avengers endgameAll we know is that Captain Marvel is expected to join their ranks in this film, and perhaps we will see a few more surprising heroes come to the forefront. We really wish they would have used Netflix’s Marvel heroes, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Daredevil as backup to boost the ranks…Still we are stoked for this film. It’s time for some avenging–one more time! Avengers Assemble!

You be sure to catch all the action April 26, 2018! Happy viewing!

[TRAILER] “Fish Out Of Water!” Warner Bros. Releases New Extended “Aquaman” Trailer!

Warner Bros. remains “unbothered” in its attempts to expand the DC Cinematic Universe, and from the looks of it Aquaman will be taking it to the next level in the titular superhero’s first standalone feature film! When we last left Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa) he, alongside Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Cyborg, managed to defeat Steppenwolf and stave an invasion from the latter’s homeworld of Apokolips. Well it looks like Aquman is back in action–this time not only to save the surface world–but his own home of Atlantis as he goes to battle with his half-brother, Ocean Master for the fate of the kingdom and the world at large!

The new trailer for Aquaman has been released and it looks amazing! Everything about this film screams action and thrills. From underwater battles and an amazing origin story to deadly sibling rivalry and super villains! Check out the full trailer above!

We have to say Aquaman may very well redeem the DC Cinematic Universe. Thus far, only Wonder Woman has been met with critical acclaim, but we just know the King of Atlantis has the potential to have a film just as great. We loved seeing Ocean Master, and more so Black Manta in the mix. We are about to see just how deadly two of the biggest villains in his rogues’ gallery are. Black Manta’s eye beams from his signature helmet, alone, are terrifying!

Based on the trailer we can also see that he is not alone in his battle for Atlantis, with Mera by his side. This film may very well show just how the two of them fell in love. The desert scene and the clip we see of them running from Black Manta and his henchmen, only prove they are quite the Dynamic Duo on their own.

Finally, seeing Aquaman in his iconic costume, as more than a king, and with Poseidon’s trident is EVERYTHING!

Besides the action and the story we are hoping in future trailers and the film we get to see Aquaman’s sidekicks and family including Vulko, Aqualad, Tempest, Dolphin, and Aquagirl. Saving the world was hard, but saving the ocean–which is infinitely bigger is even harder! Be sure you catch Aquaman in theaters everywhere December 21, 2018!

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

This will definitely be a fight for the ages seeing Adonis go up against, Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago– the man who killed his father. If Viktor is anything like his father this may very well be a fight to the death for Adonis. We cannot wait for the film to debut this fall, Creed was epic and its sequel will undoubtedly be just even greater. After all Michael B. Jordan is in it! Did we we mention that Dolph Lundgren, “Captain Ivan Drago,” himself will be reprising his role as well! Hmmm maybe he and Rocky will have a nice final showdown as well.

What do you all think of the first trailer for the film? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
