Black Hollywood showed up in numbers this weekend to join in on the #OccupyCityHall movement in an effort to support all initiatives that invoke change.
The ongoing #OccupyCityHall movement was sparked as a result of the Los Angeles Police Commission’s decision on Tuesday, July 12, that the fatal shooting of Redel Jones last year was justified and “in-policy.” Jones, an African-American woman who matched the description of a robbery suspect, was shot in an alleyway in South Los Angeles after police say she moved towards an officer while holding a knife.
Those who were in attendance joining the movement at Los Angeles City Hall yesterday, Sunday, July 17, were Megan GoodDeVon FranklinMarlon Wayans,Terrence JOmar EppsKeisha EppsTina Knowles-LawsonBoris KodjoeNicole Ari ParkerKimberly EliseChris SpencerEva MarcilleDondre Whitfield, Lance GrossAffion CrockettLogan BrowningKendrick Sampson and Datari Turner.

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

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 crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard 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 it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

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

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and 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.
