PROUD Mary

Taraji P. Henson has beautifully portrayed the confident, independent woman in prior movie and TV roles. Her new film, “Proud Mary”, is no exception. Although it seems the film offers some of your typical clichés of the action film genre, there is something to Ms. Henson playing the modern black female anti-hero.  The film feels like a homage to that bygone era of BLAXPLOITATION films of the 1970s (for those of you who were around back then), where you had strong Black female leads like Pam Grier (Foxy Brown), and Tamara Dobson (Cleopatra Jones) kicking ass and taking names.

The film’s trailer definitely appeals to those seeking the kind of action you would typically see in male-driven action flicks. Many online posts have compared it to “Atomic Blonde”, which is completely different story. It will be interesting to see how the film is marketed and received as the theatrical release date nears.

“Proud Mary” is due in theaters on January 12, 2018.

The “Movies With Melanin” Tour Is Coming!

Ever wish you could see some of your favorite old-school movies back on the big screen? Imagine having the opportunity to see the films that may have been the centerpiece of many of your coming-of-age- experiences back at the multiplex. Imagine getting the opportunity to see legendary films like “Coming To America” and “Waiting To Exhale” the way they were meant to be seen one more time? Who wouldn’t love to see some of those great movies your parents shared with you on the old VCR or DVD or on late night TV in their original big screen glory? Well, former Twitter and Reddit executive, Mark Luckie has decided to make sure everyone has that cinematic experience. His “Souled Out Cinema” experience will initially show “Waiting To Exhale” and expand to other theaters. The team has a Kickstarter campaign, with a goal of raising $75,000 by November 17th. Funds will cover securing venues and obtaining licenses to screen films. Donor perks include getting their name shown in the credits before each movie screening, access pre-sale tickets or a lifetime pass to any SOC showing.
