With Spike Lee’s latest film, ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus,’ pegged to have its World Premiere on June 22nd at the 18th Annual American Black Film Festival, Blackfilm has revealed this first image from the romantic horror comedy. Funded through the acclaimed director’s Kickstarter campaign, the film is cryptically described as follows: “Human beings who are addicted to Blood. Funny, Sexy and Bloody. A new kind of love story (and not a remake of “Blacula”).” While very little is known about the project, the likes of Zaraah Abrahams, Stephen Tyrone Williams, Michael K. Williams, Felicia Pearson, Steven Hauck and Elvis Nolasco star. Expect more news about ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’ soon.
Side note: this month marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Spike Lee’s groundbreaking ‘Do the Right Thing.’ Lee recently spoke with HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill about the film’s anniversary and how, after so many years, ‘Do the Right Thing’ is still relevant and being taught in classrooms around the world. For Lee, the purpose of making the film was to get people engaged in discussions about race. Check out the chat below.
Sony Pictures has unveiled this brilliant Propaganda-style poster and first trailer for ‘The Interview,’ which stars Seth Rogen, James Franco, Lizzy Caplan and Randall Park. Written and directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, ‘The Interview’ revolves around a handsome talk show host (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who find themselves in way over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea. The film opens on October 10th in the US and October 29th in the UK and Ireland.
In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.
