Directed by George Nolfi, The Banker is a new drama based on the true stories of Bernard Garrett (Anthony Mackie) and Joe Morris (Samuel L. Jackson).

Garrett, a revolutionary businessman was one one of the first African American bankers in the United States. Both Garrett and Morris dared to take on the racially oppressive establishment of the 1960s by helping other African Americans pursue the American dream.

Additional key cast includes Nia Long, Nicholas Hoult, Jessie T. Usher…

I like the idea of Mackie, Jackson and Hoult on screen together. Looking forward to seeing their characters play the game and win.

Colm Meaney, Paul Ben-Victor, Gregory Alan Williams, Michael Harney, Taylor Black, James DuMont and Rhoda Griffis also star.

The Banker Release Dates: December 6th, 2019 (US)…

Directed by Tim Story, Shaft is the latest crime / action movie starring once again Samuel L. Jackson as New York City police detective John Shaft.

Shaft’s son John Shaft Jr. (Jessie T. Usher) is in town to enlist his father’s help to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death.

I don’t remember seeing the Shaft movies that came before this new instalment. All I know is that so far, I like the humour. Especially Shaft’s response to his son’s reference to James Bond: ”If that dude was real, he’d think he was me.

Shaft Release Dates: June 14th, 2019 (US & UK)…

THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD (2017): New Trailer From Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson…

In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynolds is the latter and Samuel L. Jackson, the former. The bodyguard and hitman are not quite getting along. Still they must learn to work together because one of them has to testify at the International Court of Justice…

I don’t know if Reynolds and Jackson have been in a movie together before, but I’m certainly a fan of their chemistry. I’m also getting something of a The Other Guys (2010) vibe – and I’m sure that’s a good thing.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Based on the novel by Stephen King, Cell is the new Tod Williams directed sci-fi / horror / thriller from Samuel L. Jackson and John Cusack…

The last apocalyptic movie I watched (The 5th Wave (2016) was quite the let down. May this one not be that. The story actually reminds me a little of another Samuel L. Jackson movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014).

Cell Release Dates: July 8th, 2016 (US); September 1st, 2016 (UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
