Superfly — In Theaters June 15th
A reimagined take on the 1972 blaxploitation film of the same name, starring Trevor Jackson, Jason Mitchell, and Michael Kenneth Williams (who is giving me serious “Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” vibes for some reason). The action moves to Atlanta, and the money is now cryptocurrency.

This is a super fucked up Mother’s Day-themed trailer for a super fucked up horror movie. Enjoy!

It’s a live-action version of The Little Mermaid (the story, not the Disney cartoon), only it’s set at a circus in Mississippi? Or… something? This naked cash-grab stars Gina Gershon, Shirley MacLaine, and one of the Pevensie kids from The Chronicles of Narnia.
