What to Expect from Tessa Thompson and Jonathan Majors in ‘Creed III’

The Creed franchise was so much more than a boxing film. It’s a celebration of Black culture through the lens of an underdog sports movie. In it, we witnessed the rise of a champion in Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) who not only stepped out of his father’s shadow, a father he never knew but also faced his demons fighting his father’s killer while also telling a powerful Black love story. And we get to see how all of that evolves in Jordan’s directorial debut, Creed III.

Trailer Revealed for Ron Howard’s Thai Cave Rescue Film, ‘Thirteen Lives’

In 2018, in a small rural village in northern Thailand, thirteen lives were changed forever after being trapped in a cave for 18 days. The junior football team, which consisted of twelve children and their adult coach, went hiking along the caves of Tham Luang, but a unexpected rainstorm caused the cave to flood — trapping them deep within the caves.

NOC Review: ‘No Time to Die’ is Capital Closure for Craig

It’s a bittersweet experience walking into the final installment of a film franchise you’ve enjoyed for 15 years. Something about the finality of a series you’ve seen grow and develop over the years hits you in the feels. Yes, I know Bond’s been around for close to 60 years. And yes, I grew up watching Bond movies like everyone else. I was nine when Goldeneye came out, and saw all of the Brosnan films as well when they hit theaters too. But to be honest those just didn’t register on any emotional level for me. I simply didn’t care about the character or the franchise unless I was playing as him on N64. That was until Daniel Craig came along.

Actions Speak Louder than Words: Henry Golding on Being ‘Snake Eyes’

Few comic book characters mean more to me than G.I. Joe’s resident Ninja Commando. Created by Larry Hama and based on the Hasbro action figure designs, Snake Eyes wasn’t just my favorite action figure, he unlocked my imagination as a child. A silent warrior with a classified name and background meant that anyone could be beneath that iconic all-black mask. So for years, Snake Eyes looked like me until the comics eventually revealed the man underneath was yet another white-guy-who-happens-to-be-best-Asian.
