We all have it rough in this world, but orphans possibly have it worst of all. Foster care, new placements, a failing social system, and not feeling like you belong anywhere can really take a toll on you. Then one day you find yourself on a strange rock talking to an all-powerful wizard (Ron Cephus Jones), who, when you utter his name, “SHAZAM” (acronym of six “immortal elders”: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury) grants you the powers and skills of various kings, gods, and demigods to defend the world! Enter the world of Billy Batson, aka “Earth’s Mightiest Mortal” and the superhero, Shazam!

Warner Bros. is cranking out these trailer for its film and television series left and right at Comic-Con this year and it looks like it’s Shazam’s turn. You can see the full trainer above!

Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer in Shazam

Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer in Shazam! (2019)

From what we can tell from the trailer this will very much be an origin story and a coming of age tale, as Billy Batson (Asher Angel) juggles having to learn how to be a superhero with godlike powers while being an adolescent boy. Accompanying him is Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer), his foster brother, who in a sense is training him and helping him realize just how amazing he is. For those of you who are familiar with the Shazam (Zachary Levi) mythos, then you know what Freddy is destined to become his sidekick, Captain Marvel, Jr./CM3, with all of Shazam’s powers, but weakened if they are both using their super powered forms at the same time.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as “Black Adam”

We really wish the trailer had finally given us a glimpse of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as “Black Adam,” the film’s villain. Black Adam is recurring foe of Shazam’s and the first human to have gained those same powers thousands of years ago, just drawing them from a different set of gods, warriors, and demigods (the stamina of Shu, the swiftness of Heru (Horus), the strength of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti (Thoth), the power of Aton, and the courage of Mehen).

Shazam will also be facing Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong), another archenemy who similar to Lex Luthor is an evil genius! You all just be sure to catch Shazam in theaters everywhere April 15, 2019! Happy viewing!

“BIG” Fun! Marsai Martin, Regina Hall & Issa Rae Are Quite The Odd Trio in “Little!”

Dear Will Packer, how many comedies are you go to make us fall in love with? Well we definitely know the hit comedy train is not stopping with his newest comedy, Little!  The film centers on software tycoon, Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall)  who is wildly successful and hilariously selfish. Her assistant, April (Issa Rae), is an aspiring app maker and spends most of her time catering to Jordan’s every need and forewarning the staff of her wrath. Jordan’s temper is “i” when a magical spell from an angry kid turns her back into her younger, “Little,” self (Marsai Martin)!  April and Little Jordan Sanders must find away to undo the magic that has made her  a kid again, avoid the pitfalls of middle school life, all the while coming up with a pitch that will save her company from ruin!

regina hall litttle movie

We have to say we were more than a “Little” charmed with Little. The movie definitely connects with your inner child and jump starts the woes and fears that come from working for an overbearing and demanding boss. Regina, Issa, and Marsai are all brilliant actresses and their comedic chemistry is definitely one for the ages. You honestly have never seen Regina in a role like this, but Marsai’s role definitely reeds “Diane Johnson” gone “Angry Boss!” Issa is still “Insecure” as April, but she more than proves she has what it takes to become a boss and boss around a mini-boss. You just be sure to catch Little in theaters everywhere TODAY!

Grade: B+

What We Liked

marsai martin little movie

-Regina Hall as Jordan Sanders! We have never seen her as an angry boss in all the years she has been acting!

-Little Jordan’s school arc. Seeing her connect with her new friends was nothing short of heartwarming.

-Tone Bell as “Preston.” Tone was hilarious as April’s love interest. Although we are not sure if their budding relationship wouldn’t be an HR issue….

 

What We Loved

[REVIEW] Riveting! The Truth About Jordan Peele’s “Us” (@UsMovie) is SHOCKING!

The American horror film genre has always been crazy, but seldom has been it been BLACK! Award winning director, screenwriter, and comedian, Jordan Peele has been changing the color of the genre with Get Out and now, Us! Us, starring Black Panther alumni, Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, centers on a Black family visiting their summer home who soon finds themselves in danger from their doppelgangers (n. an apparition or double of a living person)! The family must outmaneuver these unexplained duplicates and fight for their loves. The origins of these apparitions is so sci-fi it will defy logic!

What We Liked

-The concept of fighting your doppelganger! They say you are your own worst enemy. This was definitely the case in this film.

-The origins of the doppelgangers. Beware of playing God!

-Lupita Nyong’o taking on the final girl moments of the film.

 

us movie

What We Loved

-The bumbling nature of Gabe Wilson (Winston Duke) was maddening, but hilarious.

-The use of rabbits as a motif of duplication and cloning

-The acting of the cast. They really played two separate people. From their make up to their demeanor, and even how they moved was so believable it will leave you wondering do you have your own doppelganger.

-The symbolization of the golden scissors in “un-tethering” people from their doppelgangers.

-The ending and explanation as to why the attacks started and the truth of Adelaide Wilson’s (Lupita Nyong’o) origins.

What We Hated

-We really wanted to see a typical Black Family’s reaction to something like this. Their response seemed very stereotypical and “Caucasian” of the horror film genre.
