It would be nice to have info on “black films” opening each week in theaters all over the world; but I don’t readily have access to that info. If anything, I rely on readers to let us know about films opening in their cities that we haven’t written about, since it’s nearly impossible to keep track of it all.
I think we do a good enough job in covering Europe – especially the French and UK scene – but there’s a lot of land still left to explore, and we’ll get there… eventually.
But speaking of the UK scene… readers across the pond should know that renaissance man Noel Clarke’s sci-fi horror movie that he’s been super-secretive about, titled Storage 24, opens this Friday.
As a recap its synopsis reads:
London is in chaos. A military cargo plane has crashed leaving its highly classified contents strewn across the city. Completely unaware London is in lockdown, Charlie and Shelley accompanied by best friends Mark and Nikki are at Storage 24 dividing up their possessions after a recent break up. Suddenly, the power goes off. Trapped in a dark maze of endless corridors, a mystery predator is hunting them one by one. In a place designed to keep things in, how do you get out?
Clarke, who co-wrote the screenplay, stars in the film; he plays Charlie. Rounding out the starring cast are Antonia Campbell-Hughes as Shelley, Colin O’Donoghue as Mark, and Laura Haddock as Nikki.
This is one of 3 films Clarke will release this year; the other 2 being a rom-com titled The Knot, and the sports drama Fast Girls, which has been out for about 2 weeks now.
No word on whether Storage 24 will travel.
