Screen Gems likes being in the Morris Chestnut business. Back in 2014, the actor signed a three-picture deal with Sony’s Screen Gems. Their last picture headlined by Chestnut, The Perfect Guy, made close to $60 million at the box office, which isn’t too shabby for a movie that cost $12 million. Understandably, the studio wants this collaboration to keep going. Their newest thriller, When the Bough Breaks, is both executive produced by and stars Chestnut.
Watch the When the Bough Breaks trailer below.

Marvel’s Phase Two is ready to start next month, and with all those films lined up, fans have begun heavy speculation on what Phase Three will hold. It’ll start on November 6, 2015 with Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man. From there the possibilities include Doctor Strange, another Iron Man/Thor/Captain America sequel or maybe Black Panther. The latter has been rumored for several years, with screenplays and pitches apparently falling by the wayside as Marvel focused on other films.
The latest update concerns actor Morris Chestnut. Best known for Boyz N The Hood, American Horror Story and this year’s Kick-Ass 2, Chestnut took to Twitter and Facebook Monday telling fans “It’s time to get familiar with the Black Panther character!” Just as the Internet began to pick up on the hint, he deleted the Tweet and Facebook posts.

A good chunk of Hollywood will spend the next several weeks praying to the Oscar gods, but as prestigious as the award is, it’s important to remember that it’s hardly a guarantee of smooth sailing. Halle Berry is living proof of that. Since picking up her statuette in 2002, she’s starred in a few decent films and a whole lot of bad ones. There’s still a chance she could turn it around, but based on this first trailer it’s tough to say which side of that divide The Call falls on.
Berry stars as Jordan, a 911 operator who picks up a call from a kidnapped teenager (Abigail Breslin, just about all grown up). Jordan soon realizes that the abduction has ties to an incident from her past, and that she must face her demons if the girl is to get out alive. The film was directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist), who, come to think of it, hasn’t had a solid win in a while either. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Whereas the first movie concentrated on a small group of costumed vigilantes, Kick-Ass 2 widens the scope to bring in new allies for both the heroes and the villains. The latest additions to the good guy side are Morris Chestnut (Boyz n the Hood), who’ll be helping out Chloë Moretz‘s Hit-Girl, and Robert Emms (War Horse), who’ll join forces with Kick-Ass (Aaron Johnson).
As for when we’ll actually get to see Chestnut, Emms, and everyone else engaged in battle, Universal’s just set a summer 2012 release. That puts the sequel just over two years after the original, which isn’t a bad pace considering Kick-Ass 2 looked unlikely to happen at all until a few months ago. More details after the jump.
