We’ve got the best! Check out the most anticipated movies of 2012 coming soon to a theater near you. Some have historical value, some with comedy flare, others are legendary remakes from the past. 2012 promises to be a good year for the box office. Check out what made number 1.
Number 5- Spike Lee is set to return the beloved character Mookie from the cult classic “Do the Right Thing,” to theaters this summer. “Red Hook Summer” shares a story of a boy who moves from Atlanta to Brooklyn. We’re looking forward to seeing what Spike has up his sleeve.
Number 4- Here come The Men in Black…. part three that is. Long awaited this will serve up as a summer smash hit for sure. With Mr. Blockbuster himself, Will Smith returning along side Tommy Lee Jones, we hope “The Men in Black 3″ will be as good as it’s predecessors. Come on big Willie!
Number 3- After being in production for a couple of years, director George Lucas has finally received the green light to bring this quick classic to the screen. “Red Tails” is an epic story about the Tuskegee Airmen, the true story of the first all black military airmen. The all- star cast of Terrance Howard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Method Man, Ne-Yo and Tristan Wilds will promise not to disappoint. Don’t miss this one, support good films. You cant go wrong when you combine history and the director of Star Wars. Coming to theaters on January 20.
Number 2- If you are of a certain age then you remember the beautiful and classic film “Sparkle.” Have you wondered why these stories were never retold with a modern edge? Well ask no more, Sparkle is returning to theaters with the power house voices of Jordin Sparks and… wait for it… Whitney Houston. Also staring the hilarious Mike Epps, talented Derek Luke and soulful Cee Lo Green. We cant wait for the youngins to be brought up on game on this beautiful story.
Number 1- And the winner is…”Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.” If you have been on this planet in the last two years, then you’ve heard of the best selling book by Steve Harvey, to which the film shares it’s name and was inspired. This story will surely be full of laughs with the cast boiling over with comedians such as Kevin Hart and Gary Owens. The cast includes the hilarious Romany Malco of “40 Year Old Virgin” fame. It also includes the talented and nice on the eyes Michael Ealy, it will feature some of our Sista favs, Gabrielle Union and Taraji P Henson. Even more stars will grace the screen, Meagan Good, Chris Brown and Terrance J. The story will revolve around the ladies using Mr. Harvey’s advice in the book against the fellas. You cant wait can you?!
