The Gambler Trailer Starring Mark Wahlberg

Published

on

Paramount Pictures have released the trailer  The Gambler starring Mark Wahlberg. The Gambler takes us inside the life of compulsive gambling addict Jim Bennett, played by Mark Wahlberg.

Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael K. Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Academy Award winner Jessica Lange) in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future. As his relationship with a student (Brie Larson) deepens, Bennett must take the ultimate risk for a second chance.

Sonya Walger, Anne McDaniels and George Kennedy co-star in this remake from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), which hits theaters nationwide December 19.

Barack Obama And Jordan Peele Warns About Fake News

Published

on

Fake News is a new epidemic with the advances of technology. Fake News is changing election and creating new unrealistic basis. Now Barack Obama and Jordan Peele teamed up with a PSA on Fake News.

What a coup! Let’s listen to Obama’s wisdom.

“We’re entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point at time — even if they would never say those things,” he said. “So, for instance, they could have me say things like, I don’t know, Killmonger was right! Or, Ben Carson is in the sunken place! Or, how ‘bout this: simply, President Trump is a total and complete dipsh*t.”

Hm, that doesn’t sound like Obama. It might be what he’s thinking (it’s for sure what he’s thinking), but he would never call Trump a “dipsh*t” in public. That’s because it’s not Obama — it’s a digitally manipulated Barack controlled by Peele, who warns viewers, “This is a dangerous time. Moving forward, we need to be more vigilant with what we trust from the internet… Stay woke, bitches.”

T.I. Wants People To Buying Starbucks After Black Men Were Arrested

Published

on

T.I. is ready to stop buying Starbucks.

Yesterday TMZ stopped T.I about the Philly incident which had 2 black men arrested and for sitting in a Starbucks.

“I think that we should reserve our right to stop spending our money in places that don’t respect us equally. I think that until they have made some progressive steps to let us know that they plan on rectifying the situation, I don’t see no other answer. I think that if there is one thing that America is showing us, there is two ways that you can get their attention: The loss of life, and the loss of finances. And there’s just too much that has been left undone when it come to us being treated equally and fairly in this country. I don’t have nothing personally against Starbucks. I don’t hold nothing against their shareholders or their franchise participants. But the greater good, man, that is my priority.”

Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson also issued a statement apologizing for the incident, naming the arrest a “disheartening situation,” which led to a “reprehensible outcome.” He also proposed that he give a face-to-face apology to the two men, who were released Friday morning.

T.I. was also aware of the company’s apology, though he hadn’t accepted it. “Every time we’ve been slighted, every time we’ve been disrespected, every time we’ve been devalued, every time we’ve been disregarded, it’s always just a tweet or an apology and ‘Oh, it’s cool,’” he added. “Naw, naw. There needs to be real action taken.”

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg issued a statement urging the community to work together through nonviolent civil action “as we pursue justice and demand reform.”

“We have an obligation to everyone involved, including the family of Clark, to wait for the full findings and results from the official autopsy and investigation,” Steinberg said. “As the mayor of our city, I assure the community and the public that we will aggressively seek answers to all of the questions the community is rightfully asking.”

Just as important, the mayor said, “we will aggressively seek appropriate change to the protocols and training that led to this unacceptable outcome.”
