    Weekend Box Office January 6-8: A Solid Opening for ‘Hidden Figures’ (Continued Strong Word of Mouth Should Give It Legs)

    January 8, 2017
    Sergio Mims

    As for this weekend, I’ll give you just one guess which film was
    number one… Of course it was yet again “Rogue One”. Though the film’s box office fell almost 56% from last weekend, it did well enough to stay on top for another week with $21.9 million, for almost
    half-a-billion-dollars domestically to date, aiming for a billion
    worldwide with $914.4 million so far.

    But in a very close second was “Hidden Figures” which earned a solid $21.8 million. In fact, the film actually beat “Rogue One” on Friday out-grossing it by $1.5 million. But those “Star Wars” geeks had their say and “Rogue One” beat “Hidden Figures” on Saturday and won the weekend, but just by a whisker. Although “Figures” had the highest per-screen average for any film in the top 20 this weekend, and was made on a very modest production budget of $25 million (though it looks like it cost twice that amount on the screen); the extremely positive word of mouth that it’s getting should help it become a very successful and profitable film for Fox.

    HBCU Students, Faculty, Alumni Invited to Share Personal Stories & Photos for Stanley Nelson’s New Documentary
    January 7, 2017

    His most recent film, 2015’s “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” now widely accessible on various home video formats, veteran documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson is now set to premiere his next work, an ambitious two-hour documentary and multimedia project that explores the pivotal role Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have played in American history, culture, and national identity.

    An official selection of the Documentary Premieres program at the upcoming 2017 Sundance Film Festival which kicks off later this month, the first ever project of its kind on HBCUs is titled “Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.” It will feature the voices, photos, letters, diaries, home movies and a variety of never before seen or heard media that reveal this important aspect of collective American History, via the many stories from HBCU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The documentary will tell stories of Americans who would not be denied a higher education, demonstrating how the 150-year history of HBCUs has influenced generations of Americans and shaped the landscape of the country.

    New Trailer: ‘Media’ – Turmoil Within a Wealthy Family in Original Movie (Potential Series) Coming to TV One in Feb.
    January 7, 2017

    TV One’s upcoming original movie “Media,” which may also be acting as a backdoor pilot to a potential series (especially if it plays well), will explore the drama and secrets behind a powerful family dynasty. It could very well become the network’s bid at a signature primetime high-drama series, which it currently lacks.

    The executive producing team of Cathy Hughes and her production partner Susan Banks conceived and produced the project.

    Directed by Craig Ross, Jr., “Media” is described as a riveting story of a wealthy family battling the competitive challenges of keeping their status and position in the communications industry. Passion, intrigue and murder become a lethal recipe for powerful matriarch Jackie Jones and her children. Portrayed by Penny Johnson Jerald, Jackie is the founder of Jones Universal Media Properties, known as JUMP, the world’s premier urban media conglomerate. A family tragedy forces her son, prominent lead city attorney and prosecutor Michael Jones, played by Brian White, to abandon his political aspirations and take over the company, just as a ruthless rival challenges JUMP’s longtime domination of a lucrative industry. Michael is confronted by sins of the past, and the dangers of the present when Jabbar Randolph (played by Gary Dourdan), CEO of JUMP’s biggest competitor, is released from prison. Grabbing back the reigns from his brother, Will, played by Stephen Bishop, Jabbar embarks on a mission of revenge, betrayal and corporate intrigue.
