Published

Kasi Lemmons’ Black Nativity is nothing short of star power. From Angela Bassett to Forest Whitaker, the film is filled with incredible talent. But during a recent interview with co-star Luke James, it was Jennifer Hudson that the singer raved about.

“I’m a person that works off of energy and her aura is just inviting,” James told HipHollywood. “It’s a beautiful thing; especially for someone of her stature that’s gotten such accolades that you can feel her aura and it’s not tainted, it’s very positive. It’s filled with light and it just makes you want to be great and happy.”

In the contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes’ celebrated play, Luke plays a kid named JoJo who later becomes Joseph in the retelling of the Nativity story.

The film which opened this week, also stars Jacob Latimore, Tyrese Gibson and Mary J. Blige.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
