Black Panther Trailer


Wakanda is one of Africa's biggest nations, it's still a third world country but it's also holder of many secrets. It's former ruler was King T'Chaka, the nation loved their King but he was killed by a bomb explosion, since then his son T'Challa is his rightful heir and  leader of the Black Panther tribe.

After returning to his country, T'Challa finds his country of Wakanda fragmented and in disarray; though his people are still loyal to the crown and his lineage, many people have seized the opportunity to take a piece of Wakanda for themselves - one of which T'Challa is all too familiar with.

Klaw is T'Challa's nemesis and is an incredibly intelligent yet despicably evil man who will go to any lengths to take what he thinks is his for the taking. Klaw wishes to take the Wakandan land for his own and is willing to destroy all its citizens if needs be.

Daniel Kaluuya Says The Deeper Themes Are What Make Get Out Special


Daniel Kaluuya

And now he's been propelled into the A-list with his starring role in this year's sleeper hit, the smart horror thriller Get Out, about a young black man meeting his white girlfriend's family for the first time.

But this film also put him in the news last week when Samuel L. Jackson made a comment about his casting in the film. "Because Daniel grew up in a country where, you know, they've been interracially dating for a hundred years," Jackson said. "So what would a brother from America have made of that role?"

Get Out Review

Extraordinary

Leave it to a comedian to make one of the scariest movies in recent memory. Jordan Peele moves into writing and directing with this offbeat comedy, a fresh and fiendishly smart story with engaging characters and provocative themes. It's a combination of a knowing issue-based drama, lively romantic comedy and unhinged horror that hits all of its targets with precision. And it keeps us gleefully entertained with its escalating terror.

The story centres on Chris (Sicario's Daniel Kaluuya), whose girlfriend Rose (Girls' Allison Williams) invites him home for a weekend to meet her parents Missy and Dean (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford). Rose assures Chris that they're so liberal that they won't mind at all that he's black. But things don't feel quite right from the start. For one thing, there are two creepy servants (Betty Gabriel and Marcus Henderson) who seem to be lurking everywhere. And Rose's brother Jeremy (Caleb Landry Jones) revels in stirring up problems. As things get increasingly freaky, Chris calls his best friend Rod (Lil Rel Howery), an airport security officer back in New York, for advice. Then things take an even more bizarre turn when Missy and Dean's friends arrive for an annual party.

Peele begins to play with the audience right from the start, using Michael Abels' disorienting music and Toby Oliver's quirky camerawork to maximum effect. Often this involves pushing us far too close to a character whose behaviour is just a bit off. Every moment is undercut with humour, including awkward moments and snappy gags that serve as a relief valve even as they set us up for something scary. It's such clever filmmaking that we have little choice but to sit back and enjoy the ride. And woven through all of this is an inventive and lacerating exploration of attitudes toward race in American society.

I'm Either 'Too Black' Or 'Not Black Enough: Daniel Kaluuya Hits Back At Samuel L. Jackson


Samuel L Jackson Daniel Kaluuya

Samuel L. Jackson has managed to upset a lot of people once again with his opinions about cross-cultural race issues. After expressing disapproval at a British actor being cast in the role of an African-American in the Jordan Peele horror film 'Get Out', star Daniel Kaluuya has hit back.

Daniel KaluuyaDaniel Kaluuya slams Samuel L. Jackson's comments about him

Following his suggestion that black people in Britain don't have the same awareness about race issues as black people in America, Samuel L. Jackson has incited 'Black Mirror' actor Daniel Kaluuya to respond to those comments; and it seems he holds a lot of resentment 'that [he has] to prove that [he's] black'.

Get Out Trailer


When Chris packs up for the weekend to go and meet his girlfriend Rose's family for the first time, his biggest concern is that they might not approve of him being a black man. Thankfully, they seem to be accepting, but he's slightly disturbed by a pair of strange black housekeepers that live there named Georgina and Walter. When his pal back home discovers that black people have been going missing from the area for years, he tries to brush it off in order to get through the weekend, but he can ignore it no longer when one of the missing people shows up at a garden party on the estate looking particularly disturbed and warning him to 'get out'. But it's much too late for that now.
