Advertising Week was reimagined this year with an enlightening virtual event that was broadcast live this week from New York.
In preparation for the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (opening May 17, 2019), cast members: Halle Berry, Keanu Reeves, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Lance Riddick, Ian McShane, and director Chad Stahelski, all joined the NYC press conference to talk about the highly anticipated film.
Twenty-seven years after the release of the 1992 film “Boomerang,” which starred Eddie Murphy, Halle Berry, Robin Givens, Eartha Kitt, and Grace Jones, BET is helping to pick up the story from the film decades later, with their new series aptly titled “Boomerang.”
23-year-old Lamar Johnson is a name you won’t soon forget. The Canadian actor and dancer is featured in three big upcoming films: “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” the adaptation of the best-selling novel “The Hate U Give,” and his latest film “Kings,” which he spoke to The Knockturnal about. If you don’t know much about him yet, you certainly will.
Opening nation-wide on April 27th, ‘KING’ stars Oscar winner Halle Berry and Daniel Craig.
For context, Rodney King was an African-American taxi driver, whose ill-famed recorded beating by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1991 sparked civil unrest – starting the Los Angeles riots soon after. It was highlighted that King’s beating was a prime example of the abuse of police experienced by the African-American community in Los Angeles at the time.
According to distributor The Orchard: “As the civil unrest in Los Angeles grows following the acquittal of four of the officers accused of beating Rodney King, Millie and Obie must navigate the chaos that surrounds them in order to ensure her children’s safety. KING focuses on the fragility of family relationships and touches on turmoil and tensions of the past, which sadly prove to be more relevant than ever in today’s social and political climate.”
The riots lasted for 5 days, causing the deaths of over 63 people, and injuring thousands. Cast include: Lamar Johnson, Kaalan “KR” Walker, and Rachel Hilson. The film is directed and produced by Deniz Gamze Ergüven and Charles Gillibert respectively.
Halle Berry takes what a mother will do to save her child to the next level in the Aviron Pictures’ film Kidnap, which is being released in movie theaters on Friday (August 4th).
Halle Berry is back on the big screen and she is facing every parents biggest nightmare.
