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

 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)…

Uncut Gems is comedy / crime / drama set in New York City’s diamond district. A place where you’ll find jewellery store owner and dealer to the rich and famous, Howard Ratner.

Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie; Starring Adam Sandler, LaKeith Stanfield, Idina Menzel and Julia Fox, Howard must find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend…

I like energy, much of what I see in this trailer, and I need to know how things work out for Howard. I’m also in to see Sandler do well in a non- purely comic role.

The Weeknd, Jonathan Aranbayev, Jacob Igielski, Noa Fisher, Paloma Elsesser, Eric Bogosian, Keith Williams Richards, Tommy Kominik, Louis Anthony Arias and Sean Ringgold also star.

Uncut Gems Release Dates: December 13th (Limited Release) – 25th, 2019 (US)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Someone Great (2019)


Someone Great is a new comedy / romance from writer / director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson – and featuring a cast that includes Gina Rodriguez, LaKeith Stanfield, DeWanda Wise and Britanny Snow.

Rodriguez plays Jenny who’s on a mission to enjoy one last New York City adventure with her two best friends; and all following a devastating breakup on the eve of her cross-country move to San Francisco…

I’m most interested in the chemistry between the three female leads and what is hopefully beautiful images of both New York City and San Francisco.

Someone Great Release Dates: April 19th, 2019 (US)…

Come Sunday is based on the true story of Evangelist Carlton Pearson who was ostracised by his church for preaching that there is no Hell.

Directed by Joshua Marston; the cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Lakeith Stanfield, Jason Segel,  Martin Sheen…

I’m in for reasons including, Ejiofor makes good choices, I want to to see the arguments from both sides, I want to know the story of a person with enough courage to risk it all. Lastly, the subject matter is just so very interesting.

Come Sunday Release Dates: April 13th, 2018 (US)…

In Crown Heights, Colin Warner is a young man wrongfully convicted of murder and his best friend Carl King devotes his life to proving Warner’s innocence. Written and directed by Matt Ruskin; Lakeith Stanfield, Nestor Carbonell, Brian Tyree Henry and Zach Grenier star…

This one I’ll watch for three reasons. Firstly I’m desperate for this story to end well – because so often in these circumstances it does not. Second, what a dream to have a friend like Carl King. He’s surely the best kind of friend anyone could  have. Third, Following Get Out (2017), I’d just love to see a character played by Stanfield actually escape his captors. That would make me happy indeed.

Bill Camp, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Yul Vazquez, Hunter Emery Josh Pais and Natalie Paul also star.

Crown Heights Release Dates: August 25th, 2017 (US)…
