First look at Angelina Jolie’s Animated Film About Life Under the Taliban (Trailer) via @lisafordblog

Angelina Jolie is lending her support to the Canadian co-produced movie, "The Breadwinner". “I am proud to be a part of this beautiful film with this timely and very important subject matter. Millions of girls around the world have to grow up before their time, working to provide for their families at a very young age and in difficult circumstances. They have the strength to do what no one should ask little girls to do.” - Angelina Jolie

Premieres Today – “I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO” (Official Trailer) via @lisafordblog

MOTHERJONES: "In the eyes of filmmaker Raoul Peck, the voice of author James Baldwin has been largely forgotten in the 30 years since his death. Yet Baldwin's words remain uniquely relevant today. I Am Not Your Negro, Peck's Oscar-nominated documentary, which hits selected theaters this week, recounts Baldwin's incisive examination of the systemic racism that underpins the black American experience. The film—based on letters, published work, and notes from Remember This House, Baldwin's unpublished manuscript about his contemporaries Medger Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr.—also serves as a critique on how Hollywood has clouded the bitter reality that African Americans faced in their struggle for civil rights."

STAR WARS’ PRINCESS LEIA – Dead Today at 60 – RIP CARRIE FISHER x (Vintage Video) via @lisafordblog

"Theres no room for demons when you're self possessed" - @carrieffisher RIP Princess... CARRIE FISHER. I remember watching her as PRINCESS LEIA in the STAR WARS films and telling myself that Fisher was a symbol of strength and girl power. This woman spoke openly about mental illness and helped so many people. Carrie Fisher wasn't just Princess Leia, she was a phenomenal human being.

David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD with Will Smith and Jared Leto is in theaters August 5, 2016, and all I can say is this flick will be amazing.

We’ve got Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as The Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and lots more (including some heroes, too, like Ben Affleck as Batman!)"
