“You gotta have a plan,” he told us. “I think if you don’t have a plan, someone else is going to have a plan and you end up looking like a f*cking idiot and you end up doing what somebody else wants you to do. You can’t be somebody that you’re not.”

Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’
We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.
The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.
Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.
Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
