Director Spike Lee’s New Drama ‘Chi-Raq’ Opening In Theaters Today

Director Spike Lee‘s update of Aristophanes’ play Lysistrata set in the violent streets of modern-day Chicago titled Chi-Raq is opening in theaters today. Set primarily in Chicago’s Southside, the film utilizes modern gang violence to tell Aristophanes’ tale of a group of women who decide to keep sex from their male counterparts in order to encourage them to stop the street violence that is destroying their homes and families. Lee adapted the screenplay with writer Kevin Willmott (The Battle for Bunker Hill, Jayhawkers), which features actors Nick Cannon (Bobby, Day of the Dead), Teyonah Parris (How Do You Know, They Came Together), Wesley Snipes (Blade, Demolition Man), Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers, Unbreakable), John Cusack (The Raven, Hot Tub Time Machine), and Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls, Lullaby). For Hudson, the film carries a unique weight: she has lost three family members to the gun-violence dividing the streets of Chicago. Comedy veteran Dave Chappelle (The Chappelle Show, The Nutty Professor) is also expected to make an appearance. The trailer is here on MADE; check it out in theaters today.

New Boxing Drama ‘Creed’ With Michael B. Jordan Now Playing In Theaters

A new boxing drama titled Creed is opening in theaters today, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. Writer/director Ryan Coogler (The Sculptor, Fruitvale Station) pitched the script to Sylvester Stallone (Rambo, The Expendables) about a semi-sequel in the Rocky film series that finds former Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa mentoring the son of his old friend and rival Apollo Creed. Stallone will be reprising the role of Balboa alongside lead actor Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) as Adonis Creed, with actors Tesse Thompson (When A Stranger Calls, Selma), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show, Just Wright), and Ritchie Coster (American Gangster, The Dark Knight) appearing in the supporting cast. This will be the first time Stallone has reprised his Oscar-nominated role since 2006’s Rocky Balboa, which he also directed. Ryan Coogler directed this new film from a script he cowrote with Aaron Covington (The Mischievous Case of Cordelia Botkin, Potter’s Field). Personally, the fact that Stallone is once again on the big screen is really upsetting, and as far as seeing a new boxing movie, the studios should really have pushed for a later release considering the already forgettable Southpaw just opened in theaters not even six months ago. That being said, Michael B. Jordan is an excellent actor and Coogler received high marks for Fruitvale Station at the Cannes Film Festival in 2013. Maybe if Stallone’s screen time is kept to a minimal it might turn out alright, but chances are I won’t be the first to see it, so you’ll have to let me know.

Also opening in theaters today is Victor Frankenstein with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Woman in Black) and James McAvoy (Wanted, X-Men: First Class). Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
