Black Boys Director Explains Why The Title Is Supposed To Be Confrontational

Lowman made her filmmaking debut with Teach Us All, a documentary that looks at school segregation in America. Teach Us All was acquired by 13th director Ava Duvernay’s distribution company, ARRAY, and is currently available to stream on Netflix.

The director was as thoughtful and meticulous during our conversation as she was putting together this film. Her care is evident even in the way the documentary is structured and throughout its presentation of each male that is featured. The interviews in the film hold a lot of emotion, and I wondered what the experience was for the black men and boys. How did they perceive the process of Lowman telling their story?

Pretty well, it seems. Here’s what Lowman told me:

Why Shazam!’s Zachary Levi Thought The Rock Would Prevent Him From Landing The Role

The DC Extended Universe is a franchise that seems to have a bright future. Because after a few missteps, the last slew of movies have all been critical successes. This includes David F. Sandberg’s Shazam!, which had a strong box office outing when it hit theaters in 2019. Actor Zachary Levi plays the title character once Billy transforms into a superhero, but it turns out the actor thought that Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam would prevent him from landing the role.

Bill And Ted Face The Music: Alex Winter Confirms Awesome 2001: A Space Odyssey Reference

In Bill and Ted Face the Music the modern-day versions of the characters are finally forced to write the song that is supposed to unite all of time and space, but since the two have had no success writing the song previously, they decide the only way to do it is to use time travel to go forward in time to a point after they have written the song, and get it from their older selves. This plan is, probably unsurprisingly, not as simple or successful as Bill and Ted expect it to be.

Wait, Will Shang-Chi Feature A Doctor Strange Crossover?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is an ever growing place, and there are some very exciting blockbusters coming down the pipeline. Phase Four will feature a mixture of new and returning faces, with projects like Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings bringing in new heroes to further flesh out the shared universe. The latter project will star Simu Liu as the title character, although new rumors have fans hoping that a Doctor Strange crossover will take place thanks to Benedict Wong’s character Wong.

Dune Trailer Prepares Timothee Chalamet And Zendaya For An Epic War

The trailer serves as a proper introduction for Dune audience members who might not be up to speed with Frank Herbert’s novel. We meet Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet), scion of the House Atreides, who undoubtedly is destined for great accomplishments. First, though, he must absorb a Bible’s worth of life lessons handed down by his mother (Rebecca Ferguson), his father (Oscar Isaac) and his chief mentor, Gurney Halleck (Josh Brolin).

The Dune Scene That Made Jason Momoa Cry ‘Like A Little Baby’

For now, Dune is still on track for a December release date, and the trailer has only made us more excited for the work that Denis Villeneuve and his cast have put into the movie. Dune co-stars Timothee Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Zendaya, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem. The cast alone should get you in the door, out of curiosity.

See An Insane Tom Cruise Stunt From Set As Mission: Impossible 7 Continues Filming

It’s a great-looking stunt. Even the video footage here looks great because from the first angle we just see Tom Cruise go off the edge with no visible means of support, and you just think “Well, he’s dead.” Cruise doesn’t pull the shoot until after he’s out of the frame, and since we can’t tell from here just how high up he actually is., it all feels incredibly dangerous. Luckily, in the next angle, we see the parachute come out and we can be sure Tom Cruise will live another day to do something else ridiculous.

Looks Like Ana De Armas’ No Time To Die Character Is A Martini Drinker Just Like James Bond

We won’t have that long to wait to learn more. While we’ll have to wait for Blonde to hit Netflix in 2021, we’ll see Ana de Armas opposite Daniel Craig on the big screen on November 20st of this year. Unfortunately, while it should be exciting to see the two verbally spar onscreen once more, it should be a bittersweet moment for James Bond, too, as it will mark the end of an era for his version of the character, an era that has been notable for modernizing its hero, but also its heroines. Particularly the martini-drinking ones.

Hugh Jackman Jokingly Threatens Ryan Reynolds With Lawsuit Over Deadpool 3 Fan Poster

On a separate note, the actual poster itself is definitely a movie that many of us would love to see. Given the developments in the MCU and X-Men universes, certain things would need to be altered, but this could be just the kind of madcap, dimension-hopping tale Wade Wilson needs for his third cinematic outing. And if Reynolds could somehow convince Jackman to reprise his role as Logan one more time, that would only make things better.
