Jada in “The Women”

The first pics of Jada Pinkett’s latest film “The Women” have been released.
The film is being directed by Diane English. The cast includes some of the best of Hollywood including Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Bette Midler, Candice Bergen and Cloris Leachman. The film is a remake of George Cukor’s 1939 film which was based on the 1936 play by Clare Boothe Luce. “The Women” is scheduled to be released in October.

The Perfect Film

Hello all! Its been a minute since I’ve posted, but I am back to the grind of school and work. Anywho, Check out these pics from ‘The Perfect Holiday’ (formally ‘The Perfect Christmas’). The film is produced by and stars reel sista Queen Latifah.

The film also stars my favorite reel sista Gabrielle Union, who was last seen in Tyler Perry’s ‘Daddy’s Little Girls’ and the ever-so-sexy Morris Chesnutt. This marks the latest Gabrielle/Morris collaboration. The two have also co-starred in ‘The Brothers,’ ‘Two Can Play That Game,’ and ‘Breakin All the Rules.’

Two of my favorite former TV sistas Jill Marie Jones (formerly of ‘Girlfriends…i still miss Toni Childs) and Rachel True (from Half & Half) play Gabrielle’s friends in the movie.

Here’s the synopsis from blackfilm.com :

THE PERFECT HOLIDAY is a heart-warming holiday story of Nancy (played by Gabrielle Union – “Daddy’s Little Girl” & “Bring it On”), a loving single mother of three who falls for Benjamin (Morris Chestnut – “Best Man”, “Like Mike” & “Breakin’ All the Rules”), a talented but struggling songwriter who is working part-time as a mall Santa. Conflicts arise when her oldest son, 10 year old John-John, convinces his younger brother and sister to join him in mischievous plots and schemes against their mother’s new boyfriend in the hopes that she will reunite with his hero – their rap-mogul father J-Jizzy (Charlie Murphy). Being narrated by Queen Latifah in a magical role of “Mother Christmas” opposite Terrence Howard, who plays a hard-to-dislike Scrooge-ish character named “Bah-Humbug”, THE PERFECT HOLIDAYsuccessfully brings together all the elements that will make this a Holiday Classic

I for one can not WAIT for this movie to come out. ‘THe Perfect Holiday’ is set to hit theatres on December 14, 2007.

Until next time, keep shining!
