    I'm actually getting tired of talking about this project, and almost didn't post this new piece of news; alas, I am posting it.

    Trailer & Release Date For "The Obama Effect" (Charles S. Dutton, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Megan Good)

    Here's a project I've long forgotten about, since we first wrote about it in 2009! So, we're talking 3 years ago. And since then, nothing's been written about it on this site because, well, nothing about it has come our way... until today!

    'Anchorman' Director Adam McKay To Helm 'Uptown Saturday Night' Remake With Will Smith & Denzel Washington

    This is a project that has been in development so long we figured it was simply never going to happen. First picked up way back in 2002 by Warner Bros. as a starring vehicle for Will Smith, the project has been kicked around for over a decade and David Dobkin ("Wedding Crashers") was long ...

    New In Release This Weekend: "Restless City," "Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story," "96 Minutes"

    Nothing new in wide release this weekend, as far as *blac cinema* is concerned; but a few limited-release titles you should be aware of, starting with AFFRM's 3rd release, Andrew Dosunmu's visually-stunning immigrant tale Restless City, which, I assume, you're very well familiar wit...

    Emile Hirsch Joins Toni Collette & Pierce Brosnan In Big Screen Version Of Nick Hornby's 'A Long Way Down'

    Emile Hirsch certainly isn't predictable. The actor has vacillated from indie to movies to blockbusters to everything in between and you only have to look at recent batch of films -- "Killer Joe," "The Darkest Hour," "Savages" -- to realize that he moves very much to the beat of his own drum.

    Is Ang Lee's 'Life Of Pi' The Oscar-Contending, Blockbuster Surprise Of 2012? CinemaCon Wowed By Early Footage

    Let's just get this out of the way: making snap judgements about a movie based on ten minutes of footage is a bit ridiculous, but that said, first impressions mean a lot. It wasn't a fun week for Peter Jackson at CinemaCon who saw his 48 fps preview of "The Hobbit" heavily scr...

    Watch: Blake Lively & Chloƫ Moretz Go White Trash In Red Band Trailer For 'Hick'

    Well, we will say this. You ain't seen Blake Lively or Chloë Moretz -- or hell, most of the other cast really -- in anything like this before. Whether it all works or not is entirely a different matter, but the red band trailer for "Hick" is sure to grab your attention.

    24th James Bond Film Now Slated For A 2014 Release, But Will Daniel Craig Return?

    It has been a long four years since we last had James Bond saving the world on the big screen. Throughout the history of the franchise, the producers have generally stuck to a new Bond film every two years, though there have been hiccups along the way (the longest gap was six years between &quo...
