Armie Hammer Joins Nat Turner Biopic The Birth Of A Nation

13 November 2014 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you are like me, you may have done a double take at the headline “Armie Hammer Joins The Birth of a Nation.” In this case, we are not talking about a remake of the starkly racist silent film by D.W. Griffith, but rather a biopic of slave-turned-revolutionary Nat Turner being directed by Nate Parker.

The Birth of a Nation will tell the story of Turner, an African-American slave who led a bloody slave rebellion in 1831. The insurrection moved across Virginia, liberating slaves and leaving 60 white men, women, and children dead in the aftermath. Nat Turner was eventually captured and hung, but he remains one of the most controversial figures of pre-Civil War America.

Actor Nate Parker makes his directorial debut with The Birth of a Nation, in which he’s also starring, so it’s a feather in the cap to land Hammer to appear in the film. The »

Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg not a fan of Facebook movie The Social Network

10 November 2014 4:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This  may seem like a headline from a few years back, but trust us when we tell you this is current news!

In a Q&A over the weekend, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was asked about David Fincher’s The Social Network, a movie that chartered the creation of Facebook with Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) portraying its creator. From the sounds of things, he was not a fan…

“I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about that movie in a while. I kind of blocked that one out,” Zuckerberg told the audience. “I think the reality is that writing code and then building a product and building a company is not a glamorous enough thing to make a movie about, so you can imagine that a lot of this stuff they had to embellish or make up. They went out of their way in »
