It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.
Check out the brand new trailer now.

"This neighborhood was always rough... but there's something different going on." They're back for more! Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for Barbershop: The Next Cut, known as Barbershop 3, the second sequel continuing the Barbershop story about the Chicago crew's shop. The first movie opened in 2002, with the sequel in 2004, and they're finally getting back into the mix with this third one. Pretty much everybody is "back for a fresh cut." Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer, Regina Hall, Anthony Anderson, Eve, Jb Smoove, Lamorne Morris, Sean Patrick Thomas, Tyga, Deon Cole, Common and Nicki Minaj star. This isn't really a franchise we follow nor is it one of our favorites, but some of you might want to check this out. Here's the first trailer for Malcolm D. Lee's Barbershop: The Next Cut, direct from WB's YouTube: It's been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin's Barbershop. »

Barbershop: The Next Cut Movie Trailer. Malcolm D. Lee‘s Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) movie trailer stars Ice Cube, Common and Anthony Anderson. Barbershop: The Next Cut‘s plot synopsis is currently unknown. I’m not sure what I can say here. The initial film in this franchise (I can’t believe I’m writing this) was a mediocre comedy.

The trademark wisecracks flow in the first trailer for New Line-mgm’s “Barbershop 3: The Next Cut,” released five months before its April 15 opening.
The third version of the Chicago-set franchise sees the barbershop — run by Ice Cube’s Calvin — having teamed up with the beauty shop, operated by Angie (Regina Hall), in a single location. The new faces include Common and Nicki Minaj.
Cedric the Entertainer, Anthony Anderson, Jb Smoove, Lamorne Morris, Sean Patrick Thomas, Deon Cole and rapper Tyga are also in the trailer, which focuses on the shop coming together to prevent gang violence. At one point, Cube admonishes Cedric for failing to hit the floor during gunfire and responding, “I’m too old to get up.”
The trailer also sees Cedric give a youngster a George Jefferson-style cut for talking back to his mother.

The film is directed by Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man Holiday, Scary Movie 5, Soul Men) from a screenplay by Kenya Barris (the Are We There Yet? TV series) and Tracy Oliver. Barbershop: The Next »

Your favorite crew is back. It's about real talk. It's about real change. It's been 12 years since the original Barbershop debuted in 2002. Now, Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer are returning to clean up their neighborhood with a little help from Nicki Minaj and a cast of all-star talent. Today, Ice Cube brought the first trailer to GlobalGrind. And we also have the official poster which reunites the entire shop.
Barbershop: The Next Cut is bringing the Beauty Shop inside their doors for a joint business to help both parties keep afloat, and with the girls and guys working side by side, you can bet that every day is going to be a party. That is, if the raining bullets don't accidentally kill someone first. There's a serious new problem in town. And it needs to be addressed by a community that can actually do something about it.

Thirteen years ago, if you had said the modest comedy hit "Barbershop" would launch a franchise, few would've believed you. But here we are with "Barbershop: The New Cut," and the gang is back for more shop talk, with a few new faces along for the ride. Ice Cube, Common, Nicki Minaj, Eve, and Cedric The Entertainer are the lead players this time around, with the plot revolving around the addition of women to the traditional boys club space - and the sparks that ensue as a result. And in terms of the creative process, Malcolm D. Lee left his door open. “Whatever suggestions Cedric and Cube had — whether it was for me or any newcomer to the movie — they were always about making the movie better,” the director told EW. “I really appreciated, and I think Nicki did too. She’s a star in her own right. Here »

While the Scrooge of Humbug will be a wealthy real estate mogul rather than a banker, the story will remain otherwise unchanged. Scrooge will be visited by the three ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, who will show him the error of his miserly ways and lead him to redemption.

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.
“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”
“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has extended a record-breaking 322 invitations for membership. No doubt that after last year's dust-up over the lack of Academy Award nominations for "Selma" and the dearth of black nominees in general, the organization and president Cheryl Boone Isaacs are still looking to increase diversity among the ranks. Perusing the list of new invitees, there are several names of interest to our readers, whose work we've covered frequently on this site including actors David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Kevin Hart; directors Abderrahmane Sissako, F. Gary Gray, Malcolm D. Lee, and Rick Famuyiwa; documentary editor Lewis »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.
Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.
Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »
