BEATS (2019): New Trailer From Anthony Anderson, Uzo Aduba, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Khalil Everage…

Starring Anthony Anderson, Uzo Aduba, Khalil Everage and Emayatzy Corinealdi, Beats is a promising new coming-of-age drama set in Chicago’s South Side.

Directed by Chris Robinson, the story focuses on a reclusive teenage musical prodigy and his unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck high school security guard…

This well-edited trailer has me interested because of the way Uzo Aduba’s character asks the revealing question: ‘Are you gonna… make sure my son doesn’t get shot walking home from school?

Another reason to see this is the fact that I already feel quite invested in August’s complete evolution. I want to see him make it through to the other side and I definitely want to know just how great his beats actually are.

Last but not least, did I already mention Uzo Aduba? Something tells me we’re really going to enjoy her performance.

Paul Walter Hauser, Ariana Burks, Julian Williams, Dave East, Ashley Jackson, Megan Sousa, Evan J Simpson and Jeremy Phillips also star.

Beats Release Dates: June 19th, 2019 (US)…

Today’s movie comes in the shape of a TV mini-series. I don’t ordinarily feature mini-series on here but this trailer…!

British actor Malachi Kirby, Matthew Goode, Forrest Whitaker and Anna Paquin are the stars of Roots – to name just a few. Based on the book by Alex Haley, Roots presents a portrait of American slavery, following the journey of one family, their will to survive and transcend their circumstances.

As many will be aware, this is not the first dramatisation of Alex Haley’s best selling book. The previous version starred LeVar Burton and was released in 1977 to great critical acclaim. I’ll be watching because this trailer looks great and Roots is based on Haley’s own family history.

Other cast members include Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Anika Noni Rose and Tip “T.I.” Harris.

Exploring the life and music of celebrated jazz musician, Miles Davis; Miles Ahead is directed by and stars Don Cheadle…

I’m really liking the approach taken with this trailer, the style, editing and pace is very engaging. It also looks like Mr. Davis had quite the sense of humour. Something that must have been fun to be around. Except of course, if you’ve somehow wronged him in any way. Bring on the good, good music.

Ewan Mcgregor and Emayatzy Corinealdi also star.

Miles Ahead Release Date(s): April 1st, 2016 (US); April 22nd, 2016 (UK)…

Directed by Karyn Kusama, Michiel Huisman and Logan Marshall-Green are the stars of  The Invitation, a tense new thriller/ horror movie set at a dinner party where things aren’t quite what they seem…

In addition to the unsettling tensions, it looks like The Invitation will be one of those stories that reminds us all to always trust our instincts and get the hell out if the situation doesn’t feel right. Though, I guess if everyone did that, where would scary movies be – dare we ponder…?

John Carroll Lynch, Emayatzy Corinealdi and Mike Doyle also star.

Release Date(s): March 25th, 2016 (US)…
