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 BlackParade.
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.
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.
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…
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.
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.
Black Panther is a traditional superhero movie in the way that its’ a fun, partly humorous, definitely colourful and action-packed visual experience. It’s the classic story of a hero rising to defend the many from a destructive outside force. This time, instead of the main location being somewhere that’s recognisably the United States, the main setting is a fictional African nation named Wakanda.
Directed by Ryan Coogler of Creed (2015)and Fruitvale Station (2013), including all that this movie means in terms of representation, Black Panther is also memorable for me thanks to the great visuals and the ways in which the story is that little bit different from other superhero movies. There’s also the undeniable cool factor thats courtesy – in part of the stunt work, and shooting style.
I liked all the performances and particularly enjoyed seeing Andy Serkis in a role I wasn’t expecting him to play. The smart, empowered and powerful female characters were another highlight.
In terms of what’s next for the franchise, the way Black Panther ends certainly has me very intrigued about how the follow-up will unfold. Particularly since I’msomeone who’s quite aware of the nature of humans when it comes to power and resources.
No doubt you’ve probably already seen this one but in case you haven’t, watch it because it’s a good and fun… and Marvel.
Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed 2015) and starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett, Black Panther is Marvel’s latest comic book superhero movie. As is the case with all super hero movies, Black Panther is about a hero rising to defend many from an outside enemy. Boseman is T’Challa, the new ruler of the advanced kingdom of Wakanda and it’s up to him to prevent his land from being torn apart…
My general fatigue where superhero movies are concerned will need to simmer down a little just so I can enjoy this movie. I love how ‘queenly’ and in charge Lupita looks, especially at 1:11 in the trailer. Boseman is an actor we can all rely on – along with the rest of the Black Panther cast, so yes, I’m very excited indeed. And since February is my birthday month, I’ll consider this film as the personal gift to me that it is… in my head.
How very far away February suddenly seems.
Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker, Florence Kasumba and Andy Serkis also star.
