The party was entertaining to say the least. There was a comedian to keep the crowd going by the name of Joe Fox. There was a fashion show produced by fashion Designer Leontine Abdullah showcasing a few of her designs. A few singers graced the stage including Sabrena Whitley Robinson also a cast member for CainAbel.

According to the Huffington Post

Before today, “Selma” stood as the last unknown quantity of awards season; now, with the new trailer and a forthcoming 30-minute preview of footage at the AFI Festival in Los Angeles, its a fresh contender on the block. David Oyelowo stars as King, but the cast for this one is big: Tom Wilkinson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Alessandro Nivola, Giovanni Ribisi, Common, Carmen Ejogo, Tessa Thompson, Andre Holland, Keith Stanfield, Wendell Pierce, Niecy Nash, Lorraine Toussaint Tim Roth and Oprah Winfrey, who also produced the film.

The film, written and directed by Ava DuVarney, focuses on a three-month stretch in 1965 when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. organized a campaign to ensure equal voting rights for all men and women.

Are you going to see Selma when it hits theaters this Christmas? Leave me a comment if you saw the trailer, what did you think?

Does Marlon Wayans Push the Envelope with new comedy ‘A Haunted House 2’?

A Haunted House 2 Movie Premiere

The premiere of Marlon Wayans’ latest flick “A Haunted House 2” hits theaters this Friday Apr.18. I had the pleasure of attending the premiere and the After Party at Lucky Strike Bowling in Los Angeles.

There were numerous celebrities that came out to support the film such as Omar Epps and his wife Keisha (Total), Floyd Mayweather, Cedric the Entertainer, Brandy, and Jaime Pressly just to name a few, and of course a slew of Wayans were on deck.

The movie was a good follow up to the first A Haunted House film. You see Malcolm (Wayans) moving on from his last relationship with Kisha (Essence Adkins) to his new love interest Megan (Jaime Pressly). There were a few scenes that some would deem borderline x-rated, or offensive, but I suggest you go see the film and then make your own opinion. If you love to laugh then you will enjoy it either way.

Check out the trailer below

One of the best scenes was when Malcolm was explaining to the doll why a relationship would not work. By far you can see the growth of Marlon Wayans in his comedy.   From there the laughs continue in a roller coaster fashion throughout the film. This is not a typical film for anyone younger than 18 (although the youth of today have probably seen and or experienced worse), but this is not the movie for them.

Be sure to check out A Haunted House 2 in theaters this Friday, April 18.
