Sundance: Nnamdi Asomugha on Wrongful Conviction Drama 'Crown Heights'

18 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Brooklyn is coming to Park City with the Sundance premiere of Crown Heights.

Crown Heights, based on a 2005 This American Life episode, follows the story of best friends Colin Warner and Carl King, when Warner is wrongfully convicted of murder and King, despite having no investigative or judicial experience, dedicates himself to proving his innocence.

NFL cornerback-turned-actor Nnamdi Asomugha stars as King, with Atlanta's Lakeith Stanfield starring opposite as Warner.

"There was something very altruistic about him. It was like he wanted to free all people from any sort of injustice," said Asomugha of King, whom he spent time with in New York prior to the feature »

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

Even Donald Glover Was Surprised by Atlanta's Golden Globes Victory

8 January 2017 9:04 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

FX's Atlanta was one of the night's first winners at the Golden Globe Awards, snagging the trophy for best comedy TV series. After taking the stage to give his acceptance speech (and conveying his personal shock), Donald Glover soaked in the moment, thanked the people of Atlanta, and expressed how glad he was that so many people liked the show. The win comes off Glover's best actor snag at the Critics' Choice Awards, and even though Silicon Valley won best comedy then (much to the dismay of actor Keith Stanfield), it seems Atlanta is getting the praise it deserves.
