BLACK PANTHER – WAKANDA FOREVER (2022): New Official Trailer From Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman…

If you thought that the teaser trailer for Black Panther – Wakanda Forever was moving, prepare yourself for the official trailer from director Ryan Coogler; starring Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Martin Freeman and Lupita Nyong’o,

Thanks to the stunning visuals, very promising battle sequences and absolutely perfect music, I have played this trailer countless times since its release.

I must also admit that each time I’ve played it, I was unable to resist beating my chest as per what happens at 1:40 seconds into the trailer. There will be very few if any dry eyes in the cinema when this comes out. Lastly, how special is the musical core/soundtrack going to be.

I’m guessing the answer is Letita Wright, the question is, who’s performance are you most excited to see? I’m certainly excited to see Wright deliver. However, I can’t wait to see queen Bassett; an actor I’ve adored ever since Whats Love Got to do With it 1993 and Waiting to Exhale (1995).

Winston Duke, Aleks Alifirenko Jr., Shalet Monique, Michaela Coel, Isaach De Bankolé and Tenoch Huerta, Dominique Thorne, and Gigi Bermingham also star.

Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright and Martin Freeman are back for director Ryan Coogler’s long awaited second Black Panther movie, Black Panther – Wakanda Forever.

Due to nervousness about sadness that could have resurfaced because of Chadwick Boseman’s absence from a cast he led so very well, I paused before hitting play on this promising trailer.

However, luckily for me and likely anyone who appreciated what Boseman did as Black Panther, I find myself comforted by the very well-chosen trailer song.

Now I can’t wait to see this movie, and the tribute it will undoubtedly be to the man who portrayed T’Challa to perfection.

Additional cast includes Tenoch Huerta, Dominique Thorne, Winston Duke, Michaela Coel, Aleks Alifirenko Jr., Shalet Monique, Isaach De Bankolé and Gigi Bermingham.

Jessica Chastain, Sebastian Stan, Lupita Nyong’o, Penélope Cruz and Diane Kruger are the stars of new Simon Kinberg directed thriller, The 355.

A spy movie about five women working together to stop a global organisation from acquiring a weapon that could thrust the world into total chaos.

First of all, is it just me or does Lupita’s outfit in teh above photo suggest Harry Potter?

Secondly, what a lovely mix of talent. I’m excited to see what the group chemistry is like and hoping to enjoy this more than I did Chastain’s last movie, Ava (2020).

Edgar Ramírez, Bingbing Fan, Jason Wong, Leo Staar, Raphael Acloque, Hiten Patel, Wong Charlie, Evie Wray, Toby Sauerback and Francisco Labbe also star.

The 355 Release Dates: January 14th, 2022 (US & UK)…

BLACK IS KING (2020): The Things I liked…

Beyoncé Knowles, an artist who many years before said that she makes music to empower girls and women has delighted her fans once again, with the release of her new visual album Black is King.

Even though Black is King is dedicated to her young son, Sir – and it features a fair amount of lifting messages for black boys and men, in no way has the queen forgotten about all the girls and women who have looked forward to the new words, moves, messaging, beats and visuals of The Lion King (2019) movie-inspired Black is King.

As expected, there are plenty of great songs on Black is King; including Water featuring Pharrell Williams and Salatiel; Already and Black Parade.

As for a brand new female empowerment anthem, all I needed to hear was the first few seconds of My Power and I knew I’d found my favourite song.

The visuals in Black is King are often so arresting that you may find it hard to look away; even if you may not be loving a song that’s playing in the moment.

Beyoncé fans don’t need telling to watch Black is King. As for film, fashion, poetry and photography fans, watch Black is King for a memorable audio-visual feast. It’s certainly more than a series of music videos playing one after the other.

The latest trailer for Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker just landed.

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver are the main stars of this promising final chapter of the Star Wars….

I must admit that he start of this trailer had me thinking that maybe this was a non-official, fan-made edit because I didn’t expect the older clips. The latter half is great, of course; especially thanks to the final revelatory image at the end. My hand definitely went to my mouth in surprise.

What are your thoughts on this new trailer edit? Let me know in the comments.

LITTLE MONSTERS (2019): New Trailer From Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad, Stephen Peacocke…

In new comedy / horror Little Monsters, protecting young children from a sudden outbreak of zombies is the job of a washed-up musician, a teacher and a kids show personality.

From writer director, Abe Forsythe; key cast includes Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad, Stephen Peacocke…

The promise of humour has me interested. I also want to see how well Nyong’o does at selling her character. Then there’s the cuteness of the adorable little kids. I need to see how many of them will cry because I’m almost certain that I’d have been howling immediately.

Kat Stewart, Nadia Townsend, Alexander England, Marshall Napier, Henry Nixon, Rahel Romahn, Jason Chong, Adele Vuko and M.J. Kokolis also star.

Little Monsters Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (UK)…

Starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver, the trailer for Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker, the final chapter of the Star Wars saga is here.

Co-written and directed by J.J. Abrams, other key cast includes Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Carrie Fisher, Dominic Monaghan and Keri Russell…

Episode 9 may well be called ‘the final chapter’ but there’s without a doubt, many, many more Star wars movies to come.

A very cool trailer, of course. Also, that great jump by Ridley’s Rey really had me wanting to sign up for a gymnastics class. Granted it was a fleeting thought but for a second there, nothing was more true in my world.
