Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie star in first-look for ‘Bombshell’

Published

on

Lionsgate

Starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, “Bombshell” follows the story of several female Fox News personnel and their sexual harassment claims against the network’s founder, Roger Ailes.

Theron stars as Megyn Kelly, Kidman as Gretchen Carlson, Robbie as Kayla Pospisil and John Lithgow as Ailes.

Ailes’ sexual misconduct was first brought to the forefront in 2014 with Gabriel Sherman’s book, The Loudest Voice in the Room, in which he detailed how Ailes offered a well-known television producer a raise if she slept with him.

Two years later, Carlson filed a lawsuit against Ailes for sexual harassment and claimed she was fired for fending off his advances. Kelly later followed suit, detailing her experience with Ailes in her 2016 book, Settle for More.

After Ailes departed from Fox News in the same year, he later was named advisor for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Bombshell is scheduled to arrive in theaters Dec. 20.

BBC Documentary ‘A Fresh Guide to Florence with Fab 5 Freddy’ headed US this Fall

Published

on

Hip-hop pioneer Fred Brathwaite AKA Fab 5 Freddy has announced that his acclaimed BBC documentary — A Fresh Guide To Florence With Fab 5 Freddy, which debuted in the UK this past weekend — will be coming to the US this fall. The documentary follows Fab 5 Freddy as he embarks on a quest to uncover the hidden black figures of Italian Renaissance art.

“Not only were Renaissance artists making art that defined high aesthetic ideals but they were also groundbreaking in showing an ethnically diverse, racially mixed Italy in the 15th and 16th century. You just have to look at the art,” he said in a statement.”

"You need to see this, baby!" Hip hop legend and art lover Fab 5 Freddy explores 15th-century Italian renaissance art. 🎨

Posted by BBC Arts on Thursday, July 25, 2019

The documentary centers the hip hop legend and art lover as he examines the 15th and 16th century Italian Renaissance art in 15th-century style – on horseback. Amidst superstar artists such as Michelangelo and powerful patrons such as the Medicis, Fab discovers ground-breaking images of a multi-racial and multi-ethnic society that have slipped through the cracks of art history. In a 5-star review, The Financial Times says Fab “visits Florence to insouciantly blow the dust off art history” and The Guardian says that he is “on terrific form.”

A Fresh Guide is just another chapter in the incredible year for Fab 5 Freddy. He released the highly praised 4/20 Netflix documentary Grass Is Greener, which traces the history of cannabis in America and its relationship to people of color. The film takes an unparalleled look at the history of cannabis usage in America through the lens of popular forms of music — jazz, reggae, and hip hop — while also examining the racial disparities and injustices within that world. The film has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and just was named to the UK-based Grierson Awards shortlist for Best Single Documentary (International).

A Fresh Guide To Florence With Fab 5 Freddy will come to US homes this fall, date and other details to be announced later this year.

‘Hustlers’ Trailer: Jennifer Lopez joins forces with Cardi B and Constance Wu for Stripper Crime Drama

STX Films’ upcoming film, Hustlers, written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, was inspired by Jessica Pressler’s New York Magazine piece “The Hustlers at Scores.” The story followed a group of strippers who stole from the rich. The article focused on Roselyn Keo, who would have done well on Wall Street, but she was born with “the waist-to-hip ratio scientists have concluded affects men like a drug.”

These hustler dancers worked in a group, and the cast includes Julia Stiles (Dexter, 10 Things I Hate About You, The Business of Strangers), Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King, Big, Married to the Mob), Lizzo (2 Dope Queens), Stormi Maya (Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), and hip-hop artist Cardi B in her film debut. Her song “Money” plays in the background of the trailer.

The film is set in the early 2000s when bankers made out like bandits and club managers took 40 percent off the top of any bundle of cash the strippers made in tips.

Hustlers is scheduled to hit theaters on Sept. 13.
