The track opened with Smith and Fallon rapping about Smith's life before he was cast on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. "Let's teach them all something about Will Smith," rapped the actor before mentioning his hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. He continued, "You can call him jazz/ You can call me dapper."

Surveying the last 30 years of Sundance, there’s usually been at least one in-competition film with black leads. In 1992 and 1989, there was one black film in competition, while 1993 had two. But prior to 2020, there had never been more than five.
Black filmmakers saw a renaissance in the late ’80s and early ’90s, a period that introduced Spike Lee, Wendell B. Harris Jr, Robert Townsend, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Julie Dash, Matty Rich, the Hudlin Brothers, Leslie Harris, and others. Some of their films premiered and competed at Sundance, but even then they never composed a significant presence.
Between 1989 and 1993, a total of 10 films with black leads

A number of filmmakers from around the globe have managed to launch or boost their careers in Germany, in some cases far easier than they could have in their native countries.
Well-established in Brazil and Germany, Karim Ainouz will be in Un Certain Regard with “The Invisible Life of Eurídice Gusmão,” which being sold by Germany’s The Match Factory.
The film follows two women in Rio de Janeiro from the 1940s to the 1970s and is produced by Rt Features and Germany’s Pola Pandora.
Ainouz has made Berlin his home for the past decade while moving between Germany and Brazil, where he also teaches in Fortaleza.
Uruguayan filmmaker Carlos Morelli, who likewise teaches scriptwriting, came to Germany with an artist-in-residence program in 2008.
Morelli’s latest feature film,
Previously, users were able to express their interest in seeing a movie, such as Captain Marvel, and that would generate a number that indicated the percentage of people interested in seeing that movie. That feature has now been disabled, as this number was particularly vulnerable to negative review bombing. As Rotten Tomatoes explains, there was some confusion between that number and the Audience Score, which is only revealed via user reviews once the movie has actually been released.
Nora Fingscheidt’s feature film debut, which screens in competition in Berlin, explores the difficult and timely social issue of children who fall through the system while at the same telling a human story about a little girl seeking only to be with her mother.
Since launching their company, Weydemann Bros., in 2012, the team has striven to make films that are socially relevant. While their works often deal with societal issues, they are not necessarily front and center.
Sarah Winkenstette’s forthcoming “Zu weit weg,” for example, is a children’s film about the friendship between a German boy who has to leave his village because it’s being
A lawyer for Ribeiro has filed the lawsuit against “Fortnite” company Epic Games, claiming the dance moves are the actor’s “intellectual property.” Attorney David Hecht told NBC in a statement, “Epic has earned record profits off of downloadable content in the game, including emotes like ‘Fresh.’ Yet Epic has failed to compensate or even ask permission from Mr. Ribeiro for the use of his likeness and iconic intellectual property.”
According to CNN, the lawsuit states, “Twenty-seven years later, The Dance remains distinctive, immediately recognizable, and
Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks on the sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” has filed lawsuits against the companies behind the video games Fortnite Battle Royale and the NBA 2K games, accusing them of lifting the dance, often referred to as the Carlton Dance, that he popularized on the series.
In a lawsuit filed against Epic Games in federal court in California on Monday, Ribeiro contends, “Through its unauthorized use of Ribeiro’s highly popular signature dance (‘The Dance’ or ‘Dance’) in its smash-hit, violent video game, Fortnite Battle Royale (‘Fortnite’), Epic has unfairly profited from exploiting Ribeiro’s protected creative expression and likeness and celebrity without his consent or authorization.”

According to the suit, Ribeiro created the dance in 1991 and first performed it in
“Boarding School” includes an odd mix of narrative elements within a classically Grimm child-endangerment scenario that would work best played as a modern fairy tale. Yet Yakin chooses to pace the film more slowly as a serious drama, which keeps the suspense from building real momentum and exacerbates the script’s implausibilities. A more magical-realist treatment might have have
Billionaire Boys Club was never going to be a big hit. It was released on VOD by Vertical Entertainment prior to making its way to theaters. VOD releases that also do a limited theatrical run are never big earners at the box office. But this is particularly terrible. The movie rolled out in eleven theaters across the U.S. in San Francisco Bay, Phoenix, Detroit, Minneapolis, St.
With an impressive list of on-screen credits that got kick-started with the teen films Pump Up the Volume and the period-set coming of age drama This is My Life from Nora Ephron, making her filmmaking debut, actress Samantha Mathis has been a steady presence in features and on television shows for three decades. With notable performances in Gillian Armstrong’s Little Women, Jocelyn Moorehouse’s How to Make an American Quilt, Mary Haron’s American Psycho, and John Woo’s Broken Arrow, Mathis has had a versatile fluidity through memorable performances in all sorts of different genres. Recently, her recurring role in the post-apocalyptic FX show The Strain allowed her to explore her strongest role to date, and now she’s back in a complex performance in the horror / thriller Boarding School, from writer / director Boaz Yakin.

His latest expands his craft with the dark horror / mystery / coming of age film Boarding School, starring young newcomer Luke Prael, who plays a pre-teen lad named Jacob, who with his behavioral problems is sent to a boarding school, where he discovers some shocking truths about his bloodline, as well as the instructors running the place. In this interview, Yakin discusses the film’s young actors, as well as the mature themes presented in the film.
Before then, Hulu viewers will get a chance to see another acclaimed docudrama, the film “Detroit” by Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”). She reteamed with screenwriter Mark Boal, who also picked up an Oscar for “The Hurt Locker,” for this acclaimed film. “Detroit” documents the riots that beset the motor city in the summer of 1967 after the police raid an unlicensed bar on July 23 and arrest the 82 patrons and staff.
