In honor of Sundance Festival, I decided to put together the movies I’m excited to see this year. Both on the small and big screen. I’m really excited with the range of movies coming out – Biopics, comedies, documentaries, dramas. I’m here for it all. Let’s get into this list.
- All Eyez on Me // Scheduled Release Date: November 2016 – If you are a hip hop head, you already know who this movie is about. They have been talking about a Tupac movie for a VERY LONG time so I’m that it finally got the green light! Benny Boom is the director which is interesting because he has most notably directed music videos. The movie was originally supposed to be directed by Anthony Fuqua and I honestly would’ve loved his directorial execution. Also, this is the first leading role for Demetrius Shipp, Jr., the guy that is cast as Tupac.
- Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall // Airing Date: February 5, 2016 – This documentary explores the period the legend Michael Jackson went from the Jackson 5 to releasing one of the greatest albums ever made, Off the Wall. One of the producers of this project is Spike Lee so I have hope that he will do it justice. It airs February 5, 2016 at 9 pm on Showtime.
