You already know Halle Berry doesn’t play when it comes to her kids. Back in 2013 the Oscar winner was instrumental in getting the state of California to pass a law that the paparazzi can’t harass public figures while they are with their children.

So it’s no surprise the first film she made after getting that bill passed is all about a mother who will stop at nothing to save her child.

“I had just gotten the bill passed, Senate Bill 606, that got the paparazzi off my kids, and that was something I didn’t think I could do, but I gained strength in knowing that if I really wanted to do something I could do it,” she explained.

“This was the first movie after I started a production company – 606 films, and this was right in line with that female empowerment saying as women we can do exactly whatever we set our minds to there are no limitations.”

And there are no limitations to what Berry will do to get her kid back in Kidnap. In the film Berry chases down the creeps who snatch her 6-year-old son played by Sage Correa, and, she told Hiphollywood she loved the physical demands of the role — when not behind the wheel of her trusty mini van.

“I had just had a baby,” joked Berry. “My son was really little when we started filming so I needed to be running my butt off.”

You can see Berry kicking some butt when Kidnap hits theaters Aug 4th.

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



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.
