First Trailer And Poster For Almost Christmas Tease Seasonal Shenanigans

15 June 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood’s knack for ensemble festive comedies will continue unabated this year in the form of Almost Christmas, an ensemble dramedy that revolves around, you guessed it, a bickering family that is forced to set aside old differences while sharing the same roof during the holiday period.

No, it’s not the Griswolds; for David E. Talbert’s (Baggage Claim) festive feature will center on Danny Glover’s beloved patriarch “who asks his family for one gift this holiday season: to get along. If they can honor that wish and spend five days under the same roof without killing one another, it will be a Christmas miracle.”

Written and directed by Talbert, along with the producing support of Ride Along‘s Will Packer, Almost Christmas isn’t likely to herald any comedic revolutions anytime soon, but as a star-studded crowd-pleaser, it ought to do just fine come November. It features a cast led by Kimberly Elise, Danny Glover, John Michael Higgins, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, Jb Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Omar Epps, Nicole Ari Parker, Jessie T. Usher and DC Young Fly.

Taking full advantage of the holiday release window, Almost Christmas will revel in seasonal shenanigans when David E. Talbert’s comedy opens on November 11. In the meantime, a new poster introduces that all-star cast, who simply can’t contain their excitement to kick off the festive celebrations.

Rlj Entertainment weighs in on 'Nina' controversy

3 March 2016 4:15 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The head of the distributor behind the Nina Simone biopic has responded to a growing furore over the suitability of Zoe Saldana to play the celebrated singer and Civil Rights activist.

Rlj Entertainment founder and chairman Robert L. Johnson, who also founded the Black Entertainment Network, defended his star, whose parents hail from Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic, calling her portrayal “an exceptional and mesmerising tribute to Nina Simone.”

Saldana has come under fire from Simone’s daughter Lisa Simone Kelly, among others, after a trailer appeared of the actress with blackened skin.

The trailer added fuel to a fire that took hold in 2012 when images first appeared of Saldana in make-up as Simone.

Ever since the actress stepped in to replace Mary J Blige, who pulled out due to scheduling changes, she has drawn the ire of Kelly and representatives of the family.

They claim she is too light-skinned to play the classically trained concert pianist »

The retired neurosurgeon, whose personal charisma could generously be likened to that of a hung-over Dmv agent, was determined not to throw away his shot. He raised both of his arms in front of him, turned his palms to the country, and unleashed his signature drawl:

A specific debut date is Tbd.  "Confirmation" will co-star Jennifer Hudson, Erika Christensen, Grace Gummer and Kimberly Elise.  Washington executive produced the picture with Grant, Janice Williams and Michael London.
