Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith are tired of playing it safe in new UK trailer for ‘Queen & Slim’

  • HeyUGuys
Entertainment One has released a UK trailer for Lena Waithe’s drama ‘Queen & Slim’ starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith.

The film comes from Emmy-winning writer Waithe (Netflix’s Master of None) and Melina Matsoukas and is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.

Waithe wrote the script based on an original idea by bestselling author James Frey. The feature-film directorial debut from Melina Matsoukas (executive producer of HBO’s Insecure) stars Academy Award® nominee Daniel Kaluuya as “Slim” and rising star Jodie Turner-Smith (Syfy’s Nightflyers), as “Queen.”

First Trailer for Sophia Takal’s Horror Remake ‘Black Christmas’

After successfully teaming up for the “New Year, New You” episode of Hulu’s Into the Dark, producer Jason Blum and director Sophia Takal are reteaming to remake the horror classic Black Christmas. A staple of independent cinema for a decade now, Takal’s film follows up on her well-regarded episode and previous directorial outing Always Shine.

An early entry into the ever growing sub-genre of Christmas horror, Bob Clark’s 1974 Black Christmas concerned a group of sorority sisters who are stalked by menacing phone calls and a killer during the Christmas season. Takal’s film will be the second remake, following Glen Morgan’s ill-received 2006 Black Christmas.

Takal’s film stars Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt. In addition to directing, Takal also co-wrote the film with film critic April Wolfe.

‘Black Christmas’ Trailer: Sophia Takal and Blumhouse Do Frat Bro Slasher

‘Black Christmas’ Trailer: Sophia Takal and Blumhouse Do Frat Bro Slasher
Jason Blum is finally putting his money where his mouth is. After an unfortunate gaffe about the dearth of women horror directors landed him in hot water late last year, the producer backed actress-turned-filmmaker Sophia Takal’s third feature, a remake of Bob Clark’s 1974 horror classic “Black Christmas.” The recently released trailer teases a pro-sisterhood take on the original, which starred Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and John Saxon and has long been hailed as one of the earliest examples of a slasher film. Takal’s version features Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt.

For those unfamiliar with the story, here’s the official Blumhouse synopsis: “Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Poots) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters… prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one.

Black Christmas Trailer: Holiday Horror Classic Gets a Blumhouse Remake

  • MovieWeb
Blumhouse and Universal Pictures have dropped the first trailer for their upcoming Black Christmas remake. The first version of the horror movie hit theaters in 1974 and was remade again in 2006. However, the 2006 version of the movie took some liberties with the source material and horror fans weren't too impressed with it at the time. It's unclear which direction Blumhouse has decided to take their adaptation, but if one wants to avoid spoilers, stay away from looking at anything having to do with the 1974 original or the 2006 remake.

Black Christmas takes place as Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. But as Riley Stone (Imogen Poots) and her Mu Kappa Epsilon sisters-athlete Marty (Lily Donoghue), rebel Kris (Aleyse Shannon), and foodie Jesse (Brittany O'Grady)-prepare to deck the halls with a series of seasonal parties, a black-masked stalker begins killing sorority women one by one.

Black Christmas Gets a Feminist Remake [Trailer]

Listen. I think I know how you feel. The last thing you want to see is yet another remake of the slasher classic Black Christmas but just stick with me for a minute because this new iteration of the story is not exactly what you might expect.

Written by April Wolfe and Sophia Takal and directed by Takal who impressed with Always Shine (review) a few years ago, the movie stars Imogen Poots as the kick-ass protagonist but this time, she bands the sisters together to take down the masked killer.

This is definitely not the Black Christmas of old.

While a straight remake holds little interest I must admit that this new twist on the classic sto
