Last night, in LA, the Urban Movie Channel, along with RLJ Entertainment, hosted a private screening of the much anticipated “Black Bird.” In case you didn’t know, Mo’nique, who recently made headlines for allegedly being “Black Balled” in Hollywood, is featured in this film, and I for one, am glad to see our girl back on the big screen.
“Black Bird”, written and directed by Patrik-Ian Polk, along with Rikki Beadle Blair, is a film about a seventeen year old boy named Randy, who is fighting an ongoing internal battle, all while caring for his mentally ill mother after his father left. Not too sure what the story is about…judging from the site, I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Randy is gay. I don’t know…I might be jumping ahead of myself, here. Just a guess…lol
The screening was hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier.
The cast includes Mo’nique, Isaiah Washington, Kevin Allesee, Gary L. Gray, Nikki Jane, Torrey Laamar, Terrell Tilford, D. Woods & newcomer Julian Walker.
A few weeks ago, a private screening was held here in Atlanta, GA. The below image is from that screening. Blackbird hits theaters April 24th!
