Aretha Franklin Film To Be Released Early 2019

NEON has acquired the North American rights to Amazing Grace, the long-awaited Aretha Franklin film which made its World Premiere at DOC NYC and then went on to screen at AFI to a rapturous response. Following its Oscar qualifying run in New York and Los Angeles, NEON is planning an early 2019 theatrical release. The film has already been garnering standing ovations during its New York qualifying run.

Realized by Alan Elliott, the 1972 concert film presents Aretha Franklin with choir at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, when the legendary queen of soul was 29 years-old and at the peak of her vocal powers.  Elliott produced alongside Joe Boyd, Chiemi Karasawa, Rob Johnson, Sabrina Owens, Tirrell D. Whittley, Jerry Wexler and Joseph Woolf.

Sabrina Owens, Franklin’s niece and personal representative of the Aretha Franklin Estate remarked about the film “Amazing Grace is the heart and soul of Aretha Franklin. This film is authentic and is my aunt to her core. Our family couldn’t be more excited for audiences to experience the genius of her work and spirit through this film.”

WATCH NOW: ‘Avengers 4: Endgame’ Movie Trailer

The sequel, Avengers: Endgame, has a brand new movie trailer and celebrates Marvel’s 10-year achievement of building a Cinematic Universe other comic book companies can be envious of.

The trailer features everything that has happened over the last decade including Tony’s Stark’s first time wearing the Iron Man suit to fighting Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, which was released earlier this year. Many of Earth’s biggest superheroes are still dealing with the loss of their friends who died in Marvel’s most climactic ending yet.

Avengers 4 is the final film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It comprises 22 different films including Spider-Man: Homecoming, which filmed in Georgia, and the upcoming Captain Marvel. Avengers 4 will reportedly be the last Marvel movie for many major actors including Chris Evans, who played Captain America. Other Avengers actors Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth have not revealed if they’re leaving following Avengers: Endgame.

Avengers: Endgame will be released on April 2019. Captain Marvel will be released prior to Avengers: Endgame and it will be followed by Spider-Man: Far From Home.


Mary Queen of Scots – Watch New Trailer Now

“Mary Queen of Scots” explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart (Ronan). Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Robbie).  Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.

Director: Josie Rourke (artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse)

Writer: Beau Willimon (“The Ides of March,” “House of Cards”), based on Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart by John Guy

Producers: Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Debra Hayward

Cast:  Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Gemma Chan, Martin Compston, Ismael Cordova, Brendan Coyle, Ian Hart, Adrian Lester, James McArdle, with David Tennant, and Guy Pearce

Showtime’s ‘BILLIONS’ Season 3 Casting Call for a Restaurant Scene

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming on December 4th in New York City.

About Billions:

Wealth, influence, and corruption collide in this drama set in New York. Shrewd U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades is embroiled in a high-stakes game of predator vs. prey with Bobby Axelrod, an ambitious hedge-fund king. To date, Rhoades has never lost an insider trading case — he’s 81-0 — but when criminal evidence turns up against Axelrod, he proceeds cautiously in building the case against Axelrod, who employs Rhoades’ wife, psychiatrist Wendy, as a performance coach for his company. Wendy, who has been in her position longer than Chuck has been in his, refuses to give up her career for her husband’s legal crusade against Axelrod. Both men use their intelligence, power, and influence to outmaneuver the other in this battle over billions. The high-profile cast is led by Emmy winners Paul Giamatti (“John Adams”) and Damian Lewis (“Homeland”) as Chuck Rhoades and Bobby Axelrod, respectively.
