If you love 90’s hip-hop, then VH1’s upcoming television movie is just for you.
Starring Wood Harris and Antoine Harris, The Breaks follows three friends trying to fulfill their passion in the music industry.
Taking place in the summer of 1990, the movie brings a sense of nostalgia that even the stars could not resist. “The era felt present,” Wood told HipHollywood exclusively. “That’s the wonderful thing about hip hop … it such a youth preserving art form.”
As for the music, Antoine explained to HipHollywood that there was a “bar” considering Premier did the score. “Unreal,” Antoine used to describe the music.
And considering this is movie about hip-hop, we had to ask the film’s stars how they felt about Billboard’s recent controversial list of the top 10 rappers; which by the way did not include Tupac Shakur.
According to Wood, the list was done to “have controversy,” meanwhile, Antoine could not resist revealing who would land in his top 10. “When Billboard puts a stamp on something like that, if you’re making a top ten list and 2Pac isn’t on it, that should say a lot about hip hop and Billboard right now.”
He added, “If I had to make a top ten, I would have to say Pac before I get into my top three.”
The Breaks, also starring Mack Wilds, Method Man and Afton Williamson premieres on Jan 4 on VH1.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
