In new crime / comedy / drama The Lovebirds, Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani are a couple trying to clear their name after being pulled into a bizarre murder mystery. Will their relationship survive the night following the day’s unexpected events?

Directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick (2017); additional key cast includes Anna Camp, Paul Sparks, Kyle Bornheimer…

I’m not yet sure that I’m sold on the premise / believability of this movie just yet, but I do want it to be good.

Also, it’s probably safe to say at this point that Hollywood currently has a thing for murder mysteries right now. First Murder Mystery (2019), Then Knives Out (2019), now The Lovebirds – and I’m probably forgetting another one or two. Maybe.

Joe Chrest, Kenneth Kynt Bryan, Moses Storm, Blaine Kern III, Andrene Ward-Hammond, Jaren Mitchell, Matthew Rimmer, Catherine Cohen, Rebecca Chulew and Kelly Murtagh also star.

The Lovebirds Release Dates: April 3rd, 2020 (US); April 24th, 2020 (UK)…

THE PHOTOGRAPH (2020): New Trailer From Issa Rae, Chelsea Peretti, LaKeith Stanfield, Y’lan Noel…

Β From Writer / director Stella Meghie, The Photograph is a new comedy / romance starring Issa Rae, Chelsea Peretti, LaKeith Stanfield and Y’lan Noel.

A series of intertwining love stories set in the past, the present and all about forgiveness, courage…

In the style of Joey Tribbiani at that Thanksgiving dinner in Friends: ‘Issa, good! LaKeith, Good! A very real looking depiction of a modern love story, good!’

Or, to put it another way, I can relate the more than one of the themes in this good looking trailer, and I like the cast.

Courtney B. Vance, Kenneth Kynt Bryan, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Teyonah Parris, Lil Rel Howery, Rob Morgan, Christopher Cassarino, Jamaal Burcher, Jasmine Cephas Jones, and Wakeema Hollis also star.

The Photograph Release Dates: February 14th, 2020 (US & UK)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Little (2019)


Written and directed by Tina Gordon Chism, Little is a new comedy starring Issa Rae, Regina Hall, Justin Hartley and Marsai Martin.

The story centres around a woman having difficulty with the pressures of adulthood, and somehow gets to relive the life of her younger self…

As a fan of both Rae and Hall, I’m definitely watching this one and I’m more than ready for the comedy, colourful fashion, boss action, etc.

Tone Bell, Caleb Emery, JD McCrary, Mikey Day and Abbie Gayle also star.

Little Release Dates: April 12th, 2019 (US & UK)…
