BlacKkKlansman opened this past weekend, and even though it didn’t debut in one of the top spots on the box office charts, it earned a respectable $10.8 million from just over 1,500 theaters. More importantly though, it’s been raking in all sorts of critical acclaim with a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, not to mention an A- from CinemaScore.
If you haven’t seen BlacKkKlansman yet, now is the time to go out of your way to see Spike Lee‘s most successful movie in over a decade. And once you see the movie (or if you already have), then you might be interested in a little BlacKkKlansman contest we’re holding that includes a poster signed by director Spike Lee and a few members of the cast.

Alongside the giant shark swimming into theaters this weekend in the form of The Meg, director Spike Lee is coming back to the big screen with what many have called his best and most accessible film in over a decade (though our own review finds the film to be a little clumsy while also enjoyable and outrageous).
BlacKkKlansman follows the real life exploits of Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. But that’s not his crowning achievement. Stallworth set out to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s by going undercover in the racist organization. And a set of new BlacKkKlansman clips introduces us to some of the characters involved in this incredible true story. Read More »
Rumors have pegged the actress/singer Zendaya as playing Peter Parker’s usual love interest Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the name Michelle that she’s been given on call sheets and by director Jon Watts has been deemed to be nothing but misdirection. However, for those who don’t buy the overt cover-up, Zendaya has just thrown out more details about her character that certainly don’t make her sound like the Mary Jane Watson we know. And to go along with these new details, a rumor has surfaced pegging who might actually be Peter Parker’s love interest in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Honestly, when word came that Zendaya could be playing Mary Jane Watson, I was a little disappointed. No, I wasn’t upset because a traditionally white character may be played by a black actress, because that’s ridiculous. But I was disappointed to hear that Mary Jane was going to end up becoming the Spider-Man Homecoming love interest again so soon. However, if Zendaya’s statements from yesterday are to be believed, that might not be the case.

Even though Spider-Man: Homecoming is currently in production down in Atlanta, Georgia, details on the franchise reboot’s story have remained largely under wraps. For example, even though we’ve heard about the parade of supporting stars who have been cast in the movie, we haven’t heard who any of them are playing in the movie. However, that changes today as director Jon Watts has revealed some of the characters who will be played by the young co-stars who are surrounding Tom Holland as the new Spider-Man.
