The sequel to Finding Nemo has finally been announced. It will be known as Finding Dory. The film is set about a year after the Finding Nemo movie. Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang will be making a return. The movie is set to be released on November 25, 2015.
A movie trailer that has been buzzing as of late via social media has been the trailer for Alex Cross. This movie is based off of James Patterson’s Cross and is due for release in October of this year. If you aren’t familiar with this character that James Patterson created, I recommend reading many of his thriller novels as the character appears in close to twenty novels. Morgan Freeman has portrayed Alex Cross in the movies Along Came A Spider, and Kiss The Girls.This upcoming film stars Tyler Perry as the protagonist Dr.Cross and Matthew Fox as his antagonist.

It may be hard to believe that Mark Wahlberg has not ever received a high school diploma with the success he has had as an actor and producer of hit t.v series. If you know about Mark’s past growing up in Dorchester, Massachusetts then you are familiar with the trouble that he ran into.
Will Smith is back on top after an absence of nearly four years but for how long? The third installment of Men In Black released this past weekend and ascended to number one on the box office charts with a total of 69.25 million. Was it enough to beat out The Avengers? Yes it was. Was it enough for Will to reclaim the title as “Mr. Blockbuster”, only time will tell. Will has the ability to produce sequels for past blockbuster franchises such as Bad Boys, I Am Legend, I Robot, and Hancock but for now that it is a waiting game with a lot of speculation. Will Smith is one of my favorite actors and he can sure deliver but can this installment of Men In Black out perform the not so good Men In Black 2? The first film is a classic and helped continue to push Will to the moon. With the production budgets being so high for his films, these movies really need to bring in a ton of money. No matter how much Men In Black 3 makes internationally, it is important to bring in high profits domestically as well. Lets just hope that we’ll see much more of Will Smith in the near future. He is one of the rare attractions as an African American in Hollywood, especially when it comes to the representation of global superstars.
The Hunger Games has been number one at the box office for four weeks straight but it seems likely that will come to an end this week with the premieres of Nicholas Spar’s The Lucky One and Steve Harvey’s Think Like A Man. With all of the advertising for Think Like A Man starring Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, and many other known actors, it seems as though this will be the film to knock off The Hunger Games. Even though the former is only appearing in just over 2,000 theaters, the big name of Kevin Hart is sure going to draw people of all nationalities to see the predominantly black cast. Though it will be the end of the The Hunger Games’ run at the number 1 spot, fans should be ecstatic to know that the film has already grossed more than 540 million and counting.
I know it has been a bit since my last post but I must blog about this. It’s official. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged to be married. Brad proposed to Angelina just over a week ago. The couple has been together for about seven years now of course after working on the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith(check post title for reference). With six children(3 adopted) lets hope that their unity continues to last. So congratulations to Brad and Angelina.
