Fans Question Why Taraji P. Henson’s ‘Proud Mary’ Isn’t Getting Major Promotion



Sway, Taraji P. Henson’s fans need some answers. While they are happy the Empire actresses new action flick Proud Mary is hitting theaters this weekend, they are wondering why there hasn’t been much promo.

Folks have been venting their collective frustration on social media in recent days as glimpses of Henson has emerged on a small promo tour. “The press and advertising for this is so bad,” said one user on Twitter.

“I’m saying!,” added another. “I’ve seen maybe 2 Trailers for this film. I thought it was coming out in the Summer because of the low amount of coverage.”

To be honest, the films distributor Sony Picture’s Screen Gems didn’t do much promoting the film to the press. There wasn’t a formal junket, advance screening or world premiere.

Henson’s reps told HipHollywood they “have done as much as they can, considering Henson’s busy schedule with Empire.”

Thankfully Taraji’s fanbase is strong, and black folks are determined to show Hollywood that their action-heros matter and they can have major box-office success, no matter what.

With that said GO SEE Proud Mary when it hits theaters January 12.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”



Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
