The new movie from the incredibly prolific and successful Tyler Perry (The Family That Preys), produced, written, directed, and acted by the man himself and based on his own play, Madea Goes To Jail also stars Derek Luke (Miracle At St. Anna) and Sofía Vergara (Meet The Browns). I’ve seen none of Mr Perry’s movies because, well, they just don’t get released over here, but this looks like it could be amusing. The film will premiere in the US on February 20th.
Do you live in or near Paris, the city of lights itself? If so, you can be among the first few to view Inside Man director Spike Lee’s latest film, the World War 2 drama Miracle At St. Anna, which premieres today at the Toronto Film Festival.
The anticipated film will screen as part of a mini Spike Lee festival organized by the Cinémathèque Française. Go here to buy seats while you still can!
Miracle At St. Anna tells the story, through flashback, of four African-American “Buffalo Soldiers” who are trapped behind enemy lines in 1944 Tuscany, after one of them saved an Italian boy. It stars Derek Luke (Definitely, Maybe), John Turturro (You Don’t Mess With The Zohan), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Stop-Loss), John Leguizamo (The Happening) and Kerry Washington (the Fantastic Four films) among others. Author James McBride wrote the script based on his own novel. Trailer after the jump.
