The Boondocks TV Trailer

If you haven't already tuned into the Boondocks, you do not know what you are missing. It hypes you up, makes you laugh, and get's you thinking. Aaron McGruder is the man, and a fellow gemini I might add. Plus, there is talk about a Boondocks Movie. Riley on the Big Screen ... very exciting.

Cartoon Network's newest show, The Boondocks, created by Aaron McGruder, is the latest in a series of popular politically incorrect, "adult" animated shows. The show is based on McGruder's popular comic strip and like its print predecessor, most of the incendiary dialog comes from the mouths of Huey and Riley, two inner city kids who live with their Grandpa.

Queen Latifah in Ice Age: The Meltdown

Big things for Queen Latifah, she will be in the Ice Age sequel: The Meltdown. The original film was quite entertaining for kids of all ages. I hope the movie does really well for her, like Eddie Murphy in Shrek. Now that was a big money maker.

Diego, Manny and Sid return in this sequel to the hit Ice Age. This time around the Ice Age is over and is starting to melt, which will destroy their valley. So they must unite and warn everyone about the situation.

Inside Man Movie Trailer

Denzel and Spike Lee is always a good combination. I think with every year Spike is upping is 'pay grade' and I am so proud of him for it! Inside Man is definitely a testimant to how far Spike Lee has come in the game.

Tough cop, Detective Frazier matches wits with clever bank robber Dalton as a dangerous cat-and-mouse game unfolds. Unexpectedly, Madaline, a power broker with a hidden agenda, emerges to inject even more instability into an already volatile situation.

Starring: Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Willem Dafoe

Akeelah and the Bee: Movie Trailer

Akeelah and the Bee looks like a good, Black Family Movie. I'm loving this new trend of Black Movies like Akeelah's and ATL that highlight the types of struggles educated, inner city Blacks face when trying to juggle in between their world and the white world of academia.

This is the story of Akeelah Anderson (Keke Palmer), a precocious eleven-year-old girl from south Los Angeles with a gift for words. Despite the objections of her mother Tanya (Angela Bassett), Akeelah enters various spelling contests, for which she is tutored by the forthright Dr. Larabee (Laurence Fishburne); her principal Mr. Welch (Curtis Armstrong) and the proud residents of her neighborhood. Akeelah's aptitude earns her an opportunity to compete for a spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee and in turn unites her neighborhood who witness the courage and inspiration of one amazing little girl.

Starring: Laurence Fishburne, Angela Bassett, Keke Palmer
Directed by: Doug Atchison
Distributed by: Lions Gate Entertainment
Release Year: 2006

The New African American Trailers Blog

I am very excited about creating this blog. For those of you who know my work, you know I'm all about Black Content, so this blog I hope will be yet another space to promote African American productions particularly those in the area of Black Media. This blog stems from my first listing of Black Trailers on Black Scene, which is still up and running if you like to take a lookt at it. I had lots of fun puttin the original Black Scene together, but I felt like it was too static. Blogs are great for one the fly updates. ... well enough of the babble on to the meat.

welcome and enjoy.
