Final Trailer for Tyler Perry's Film 'Acrimony' Starring Taraji P. Henson

"You don't know what he did to me..." Lionsgate has debuted one final trailer for Tyler Perry's new drama titled Acrimony, an infidelity thriller starring Taraji P. Henson. We featured the first trailer for this film last year, about a woman tired of standing by her husband who continues to lie and cheat on her. Lyriq Bent plays her husband, with a cast including Danielle Nicolet, Jazmyn Simon, Tika Sumpter, Jason Vail, and Ptosha Storey. For those wondering, the word acrimony is a noun meaning "bitterness or ill feeling", though this trailer explains this as well. The film is told mostly through flashbacks, with Henson retelling her story of how she first met him and all the abuse she has quietly received over the years, before turning vicious and vengeful. Did she kill him in the end? Maybe, maybe. You'll have to see this to find out. Here's the

Playing Nola Darling Is All in the Details for DeWanda Wise (Exclusive)

Playing Nola Darling Is All in the Details for DeWanda Wise (Exclusive)
Anyone who has watched Netflix’s TV adaptation of Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It, the filmmaker’s acclaimed and controversial 1986 film debut, has not only noticed that DeWanda Wise has reinvented the iconic role of Nola Darling for a 2017 audience, but that her version of Nola wears a nose ring -- well, sometimes.

There's a pattern to when and why the Fort Greene, Brooklyn-based polyamorous artist dons the accessory: when she's about to -- or has had -- sex with one of her three male partners.

And it was all Wise's idea.

"Sex for Nola is more than this physical act. That's why there are candles. It's this thing that's deeply imbued in ritual, and it was like a facet of the ritual that I contributed to Nola," she tells Et. In fact, she wears a different ring depending on the partner Nola has just been with -- financier Jamie Overstreet (Lyriq Bent), model-photographer Greer Childs

She's Gotta Have It Nails Why We Need More Depictions of Black Female Sexuality

  • BuzzSugar
Spike Lee's latest jaunt is an explosive reboot of his 1986 film She's Gotta Have It. In the sexy Netflix update, Lee really dives into the characters he created over 30 years ago in a 10-episode series that soaks in every inch of Brooklyn while telling the stories of the melanin-rich characters who live there. Even so, truly not enough words can be said to describe the show's main character, Nola Darling, whose sexual exploits are just as timely as ever. Nola is a living embodiment of the direct opposition to any negative stereotypes ever spoken about black people and, especially, black women. She's arguably the heroine all women need and an accurate representation of the millennial woman, which is nothing short of refreshing.

‘She’s Gotta Have It’: Spike Lee’s Wild New Ending is Awkward and Provocative for All the Right Reasons

‘She’s Gotta Have It’: Spike Lee’s Wild New Ending is Awkward and Provocative for All the Right Reasons
[Editor’s note: The following article contains spoilers for the “She’s Gotta Have It” Season 1 finale, “#NolasChoice,” written and directed by Spike Lee. For a spoiler-free review, click here.]

Anyone looking to escape their own awkward Thanksgiving dinners by bingeing “She’s Gotta Have It” was in for a rude awakening in the Season 1 finale. Determined to set the record straight for herself and her three beaus, Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise) invites each of her lovers over for a surprise meeting of the men. While the dining room table discussions are just as awkward as you can imagine — and more so once Nola reveals her latest artwork — the episode overall turned out to be a beautiful statement of autonomy, agency, and understanding, helped along by the night’s in memoriam honoree: Prince.

But we’ll get to Prince in a second. Given the events of the season, it felt inevitable Jamie Overstreet (Lyriq Bent), Greer Childs (Cleo Anthony), and Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos) had to meet. They had come close so many times, be it near run-ins around Fort

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Review: Spike Lee Brings Nola Darling to 2017 with Style and Depth in New Netflix Adaptation

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Review: Spike Lee Brings Nola Darling to 2017 with Style and Depth in New Netflix Adaptation
In 2017, “She’s Gotta Have It” may have more to say about men than women. Though primarily focused on the same independent woman from Spike Lee’s 1986 feature film — the sexually liberated Nola Darling, played here by DeWanda Wise — the series, directed in its entirety by Lee, often feels more focused on correcting men’s behavior than celebrating the singular human being at its core.

That’s not a damning issue, only a nagging one. Many, if not all, of the messages within Lee’s 10 episodes are valuable, insightful, and rarely so thoroughly discussed via a serialized narrative — not to mention told from a proudly black perspective. While the overriding educational value can lead to an academic disconnection at times, Lee’s revisitation is as singular and powerful today as it was 30 years ago.
