Latest Flicks / Re: Star Wars 7 Announced for 2015

This is certainly the first Star Wars movie to ever release in the cold Winter holiday season instead of the usual warm Spring.

I guess it depends on where you live  :)


Springtime  isn't warm in Baltimore, Maryland? ???

Haha! I was thinking more of the Dec. premiere in places like L.A., Arizona, Hawaii, etc. and it's always warm(at least warmer than Maryland) when we visit N. Carolina during the Winter holidays.

Who was the first?


The Butterfly. She premiered in Hell-Rider #1 published by Skywald Comics in 1971. I still have my copy(along with some of their other books).

She was the first female African & Black superhero I had ever seen in comicbooks.

She was the SECOND Black female super-heroine I read(1971), but I'm OLD!!!! :)

What did AMERICAN MASTERS reveal about his passing? I'm asking because I never really looked into it.


You can watch the whole episode on Youtube and also read this:

Kristopher, what is this from?

Peace,

Its a gorgeous scene, isn't it?

Back in th' day, this is how MARVEL used to fill up a page!


Yup! it's a really great scene that speaks volumes!!! Valiant is doing some of the best comics out there now. I especially love how they're handling "Livewire". She has rapidly moved up on my list of favorite Black female comic characters. She's now Number 3, right behind Vixen and Michonne. :)

Maybe "Black X-Men" would have looked something like this?

The White House's YouTube account just published a video interview between President Obama and reporter, author, and creator of HBO crime drama The Wire, David Simon. Simon is the interviewee, and speaks frankly about the nation's policing problems, from the drug war to over-incarceration. Who's to say why President Obama invited the lead writer from one of his television shows to chat in the White House, but the video feels like an opportunity for the President to illuminate a number of controversial conversations about changes that need to be made about how our nation polices itself.

Also, Omar is President Obama's favorite character. President Obama has great taste.

Would this man be a live if he wouldn't have ran.

I think he would still be alive. He would have been held for ransom by the justice system until a relative or friend paid off the money he owes for "child" support. Happens everyday in America, regardless of "race".

I'm not into that "binge watching" crap, but DAMN, this show is addictive!!! I had planned to pace myself, 2 episodes a week, but that's not going to happen. About to start Episode 9.

An ethnically diverse cast is paying off in a big way for Furious 7.

The Universal movie opened to a franchise-best $384 million over the weekend at the global box office, including $143.6 million domestically the biggest debut since The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in November 2013 ($158 million). More impressive, its global bow was the fourth-best of all time.

According to Universal, 75 percent of the audience in North America was non-Caucasian, generally in line with previous installments. Hispanics, the most frequent moviegoers in the U.S., made up the majority of ticket buyers (37 percent), followed by Caucasians (25 percent), African-Americans (24 percent), Asians (10 percent) and other (4 percent).

"The importance of diversity of the ensemble cast in the Fast and Furious franchise has been an integral part of the success of the brand," said Rentrak box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian. "There is literally someone within the cast that is relatable on some level to nearly every moviegoer around the world, and this has paid big dividends at the box office and also in terms of how casting decisions will be made in the future for these types of large-scale action epics."

Dergarabedian and other box office pundits are hard-pressed to think of another franchise that is as ethnically diverse, even as Hollywood in general is criticized for a lack of diversity both behind and in front of the camera.

Furious 7's ensemble cast includes Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and, of course, the late Paul Walker. Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges, martial artist Tony Jaa and Djimon Hounsou also star.

"Someone that I admire quite a lot recently said this is a franchise that really looks like America, and there are characters that everyone can relate to. I think that's a big plus," said Universal president of domestic distribution Nicholas Carpou.

Overseas, Furious 7 opened to $240.4 million, the No. 3 foreign opening of all time and likewise pointing to the broad appeal of the cast. The movie delivered huge results in Latin America, Europe and Asia (Mexico led with $20.8 million, followed by the U.K. with $19 million). In 26 countries, the movie delivered the biggest opening weekend of all time, including Mexico and Taiwan ($10.3 million).

The desire to see Walker one last time no doubt contributed greatly to Furious 7's stunning performance. Universal intended to open the seventh installment on July 11, 2014, but production was halted in November 2013 when Walker died in a tragic car crash during a Thanksgiving hiatus.
