Bawn TV never fails to deliver quality content. The dramas, movies, series, and projects on the network’s platforms continues to grow; the latest of these being its new movie, District, loosely based on Tyson Anthony’s novel, Hood Goods.

As you may already know, District began as a web series starring Brandon Anthony and Tami Roman, however, after a “tift” between Tami and production the series scrapped and made into a film. We have to say this was a surprising move on behalf of Bawn TV, but definitely an appropriate one.

 District tells the story of Miller (Brandon Anthony) a young man who grew up in the projects and had to raise himself after his mother (Tami Roman) was incarcerated after defending him from his abusive father.

Miller is strong, independent, and compassionate, but has a weakness for his friend, Trayvon (Jeffery Erskine), a crack addict. On top of all this drama, Miller seeks to find a way out of the projects with a little help from less than savory friends.

Overall District could have easily been one of the greatest web series ever produced, and we hate to see it end. (Is a recast possible?) Brandon, Tami, and Jeffery are all amazing actors, and this story hits a little too close to home if you are gay and stuck in inner city life. Still, it is definitely award worthy and even more interesting is Brandon Karson’s role in the film. We do not want to give anything away, but you have NEVER seen him in a role like this one. It is a true testament to his growth as an actor and his rising star power. You can see District subscribing to for yourself by Bawn TV. Happy viewing!

DOPE! “Black Panther,” Director, Ryan Coogler, To Produce “Space Jam” Sequel!

It is hard to believe it has been over twenty-two years since Space Jam made its debut to audiences worldwide. As many of you recall the movie was nothing short of a mega-hit as it showcased Warner Bros.’ Loonie Tunes’ characters alongside Michael Jordan to take on a group cartoonish aliens bent on enslaving them. Many were surprised that a sequel to the film did not ensue, but there is good news! Not only is there a sequel coming soon, but LeBron James stars in it AND it will be directed by Black Panther’s director, Ryan Coogler!

Ryan Coogler, as you may already know, is currently the highest grossing Black director, and one of the best filmmakers alive. His films, Fruitvale Station, CreedThe Sculptor, and of course Marvel’s Black Panther, are . He will definitely keep and some extra flavor to the Space Jam sequel. Ryan usually works with Michael B. Jordan in each of his films, and the two have become quite the dynamic duo. We wonder if he will make an appearance in the sequel. Anything he is in is always great!

Even more interesting are the other possible NBA players Ryan could cast in the film. The previous film had appearances from Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bogues, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, and Larry Johnson. It would definitely be great to see Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Steph Curry, and Iman Shumpert.

Space Jam is an epic, and beloved childhood film and we are so happy to revisit that world. What do you guys think? Are you excited about the sequel? Sound off in the comments section below!

The film is set in the nineties and centers on Air Force pilot, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who goes missing in action, and returns to Earth with super powers after an encounter and experimentation by an alien race known as The Kree. She returns to Earth partly amnesiac, with few memories of her life.

She is later discovered by a disillusioned Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), he soon realizes she may be Earth’s only hope when the planet finds itself caught in the interstellar war between The Kree and their archenemies the shape-shifting race known as The Skrulls!

From the trailer we can see that Captain Marvel is invulnerable, can fire energy blasts, fly, and possesses superhuman strength, speed, and agility. She is rumored to be the most powerful hero in the MCU and very well may be what other superheroes need to stop Thanos and restore the universe after the events of Avengers: Infinity War. We loved seeing appearances from The Kree, Skrulls, and even the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell, portrayed by Jude Law!

Captain Marvel has to be one of the most highly anticipated superhero films to date, and may be Marvel Studio’s answer to Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman. It stands as the first female-led superhero film from this particular studio, which is progressive, but surprising. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has other strong female leads, namely Black Widow, who many thought would have had her own standalone film. Perhaps this will open the door for more super-heroines!  What do you guys think of the trailer? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Marvel’s tiniest heroes are still two of its mightiest! We are super psyched as Ant-Man & The Wasp finally goes digital and comes to Blu-Ray this October!

When we last saw Scott Lang, aka the second “Ant-Man,” he was in Captain America: Civil War, where he was recruited by Captain America to fight off Iron Man and a few other heroes to save Winter Soldier and stop Baron Zemo. However, Scott was subsequently arrested for his actions and placed on house arrest for two years, alienating himself from Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), the original Ant-Man and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne. Flash forward to present day and Hope has become a superhero herself, operating with her father and utilizing a modified version of her mother, Janet’s (Michelle Phifer), Wasp suit equipped with wings and “stingers” that can fire blasts of electrical energy. Hank may have discovered a means of rescuing Janet from the Quantum Universe just as the latter telepathically reaches out to Scott. Hope and Hank reluctantly enlist Scott’s help in saving her, but a mysterious villain with quantum powers of her own, Ghost, wants their technology for herself. Scott and Hope will have to team up as Ant-Man and Wasp to not only save Janet, but keep Hank’s shrinking technology out of the government and organized crime’s clutches!

The Avengers may be dealing with Thanos and saving the universe, but its nice to see the smaller adventures are just as action packed.  October 2, 2018 you’ll be able to digitally watch Marvel’s Ant-Man & The Wasp; and then on October 16, 2018 you’ll be able to add the Blu-Ray to your collection.  Happy viewing!
