Published

Nia Long has been in tons of films, but one director she’s tipping her hat to is Tyler Perry. Long told us exclusively on the set of Best Man Holiday that Perry pulled out all the stops to get her to be in his latest film The Single Moms Club and once on set, treated she and her castmates like “queens”.

“It was the most well oiled machine, you’ve ever seen operate,” Long said of Perry and his production crew. “You get there, you’re treated like a queen, you have fresh flowers in your trailer every day.”

And if that’s not enough, the Brooklyn native also revealed that Perry even cast her 11 year old son Masai as her son in the movie, so she wouldn’t have to be away from him while filming in Atlanta.

Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club is in theaters March 14, 2014.

    This video on ” has nia long become the worst woman in the best man holiday is a ridiculous waste of time the narrator sound s like a scorn angry person( notice I said person with no indication to race so as to not fuel his ridiculous fire anymore) I feel embarrassed as a black person to hear something like this because it totally uncalled for and undeserved the reality is that a lot of woman are raising there children alone and if she feels comfortable enough with who she is an what is is doing as a mother / woman she should be getting our support because this campaign for single mothers is important, to many of them are made to feel like they should be embarrassed by their circumstances because that is how society wants it to be this is why as arace we cannot get ahead there is too much hate and insecurity within our community and it needs to be stopped. You should really reevaluate your mentle stability because until you and all of us get it right we can’t move forward.

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

Published

on

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.
