Published

It’s been a huge year for actress Alexandra Shipp. The Arizona native played Aaliyah in Lifetime’s Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, stars in the forthcoming N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton and will now be featured in 20th Century Fox’s, X-Men Apocalypse.

Producer Bryan Singer announced via Twitter on Thursday that Shipp will play Storm in the upcoming superhero film. Bryan also confirmed that Sophie Turner and Tye Sheridan were also cast in the movie.

“Meet our new and brilliant young mutants: as as and as . ,” he tweeted.

And although Shipp hasn’t directly responded to the big news, she did post this photo on Instagram after Singer’s announcement with the caption:

“My current mood right now.”

Halle Berry played Storm in 2003’s X-Men 2, a role in which the star quickly became known for. So we present this question: Will Shipp deliver?

    I would have rather seen storm die than this girl play her. I’m sorry but she sucked in that Aaliyah disaster movie. This young lady doesn’t have the chops for the big screen.

    Storm regardless is an African woman not even African American. These people should be sued for misrepresentation, false advertising and if it could be a crime “white washing” black culture. No offense to the girl but out of respect and considering a huge lack of knowledge If I was her I wouldn’t accept the part because as a partially black woman I would prefer for my culture to be portrayed the way they are supposed to and maybe people will realize more the influence we have on the rest of the world. This may seem small to some people but blacks are tired of significant black influences being portrayed as lighter than as if the white ness

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
