First Look At Heartbreaking “Bobbi Kristina” Biopic

Published

on

TV One just released the trailer for it’s upcoming biopic Bobbi Kristina and it’s definitely going to be a tearjerker.

Per the network, the film “aims to restore what has been lost amidst the tabloid headlines:  the real Bobbi Kristina Brown, a.k.a. “Krissy” — the vibrant, talented and troubled only daughter of pop music royalty Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, who died too young, and whose memory has been overshadowed by the circumstances of her death.”

In the heartbreaking first look, we see Bobbi Kristina played by Joy Ravaris trying to cope with the sudden death of her mother Whitney Houston. In one scene she tearfully tells her aunt Pat Houston played by Vivica Fox that Nick Gordon, is “the single best thing that’s happened” to her since losing her mom.

Audiences also see her relationship with her mother (played by Demetria McKinney) and her struggles to live up to her enormous singing abilities.

Directed by Ty Hodges, Bobbi Kristina also stars Hassan Johnson as Bobby Brown and Nadji Jeter as Nick Gordon.

The film comes just two years after BK’s untimely and tragic death at her Georgia home. Her autopsy showed that she died due to drowning in a bath tub mixed with a lethal dose of alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine.

Gordon was found legally responsible for her death and was ordered to pay her estate $36 million. He remains a person of interest in the criminal investigation.

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

Published

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.
