Last night I had the chance to check out a private screening of F. Gary Gray’s new film, “Law Abiding Citizen.” To call this movie great would be an immense understatement.
But let me first start off by bowing down to the fantastic Viola Davis. Her role in this film is both strong and poignant. There are few actors that can draw me in and allow me to see the the character – and NOT just the actor. But, her portrayal as the Major of Philadelphia was a WHOA moment.
Written by Kurt Wimmer and with a budget of $50 million, Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and Gerard Butler have amazing chemistry, and both give riveting performances in this new thriller.
The film takes place in Philadelphia and tells the story of Clyde Shelton (Butler), a man who decides to exact revenge on his family’s killers, as well as the criminal justice system.
After a home invasion, Clyde Shelton (Butler), a top-notch former spy, now retired, is told that one of the criminals who killed his wife and daughter would get off, due to his cooperation with the district attorney’s office, and the other would be put on death row.
Shelton seeks revenge, not just against the criminals, but the entire justice system. He is quickly captured, but Nick Rice (Foxx), a corrupt D.A. who got one of the murderers off, quickly realizes that prison isn’t enough to keep Shelton from killing those who kept the criminals from getting the sentence they deserved.
Shot on location in and around Philadelphia, filming locations included Philadelphia’s City Hall and the old Broadmeadows prison.
FUGGIN AWESOME FILM!!! ITS DEFINITELY A MUST SEE!!
Special shoutout to Kenny Hamilton and 95.5 The Beat for the exclusive sneak peek.
Though AG Entertainment’s Velvet room is known for opulence, it’s also known for treating people like shit. And last night was no exception as Jaime Foxx quickly realized.
Foxx held his official afterparty at the popular nighttime party spot. But after garnering major resistance at the door [typical], it seems all hell broke loose.
Per one of my G.U. spies at Velvet Room last night:
OK Scoop! Alex and company at Velvet Room was acting stank to Jaime Foxx’s family and his people about letting them in. No one would let them in and everyone yelling at them. So Jaime came out and left the venue He looked pissed. Alex camp tried to smooth things over, but Foxx wasn’t going for it.
Wow that Alex Gideon never ceases to amaze me.
Why does he act out so much.
This is personally why whenever there is an event at Velvet room I opt out. AG treated me like shit one time at the door and I haven’t been back since.
Out of all the venues in this city, I find it interesting how AG wanna act out like they do. Especially a invited celebrity.
Jaime Foxx is fight mad that his now infamous nekkid photo has leaked on the internet. And rather then blaming himself for the stupid move it seems Jaime is pissed at all the media coverage.
Foxx was ‘pissed’ when he learned that these naked photos surfaced on the net and lawyer sent a seething letter [to the website] demanding that the photos be taken down. The lawyer claimed that the photo was in connection to a movie role for which Jamie is currently preparing. The website has since removed the photo.
Jamie has a teenage daughter (Corrine, 15) which is definitely embarrassing, considering that her friends have access to the internet and most likely saw the photo. [Source]
Perhaps the lesson for all should be to NOT take any pictures of yourself that you’ll know you’ll be ashamed of should they leak. Or at least keep your face out of it for God’s Sake.
No disrespect, but was Foxx looking out for daughter when he took the picture? Then why should anyone/the media look out for him?
Is it embarassing? Absolutely. But he’ll be alright at the end of day.
Yesterday I told you about Jaime Foxx and some rumored nude pics that were circulating the web. The picture displays what appears to be the Oscar winner, flexing in front a mirror rocking a wave cap nothing more.
But, unfortunately you’ll probably never see it as Jaime is sending out legal notices to anyone who posts it. Just ask MTO.
According to Foxx’s legal team, the photo is his property – and that it was taken in connection with a “movie role.”
But one of my peoples tells me that Jaime took this photo a while back once he became impressed with the way his muscles were developing.
A movie role Jaime? Really??
Foxx had better be lucky the revealing picture was released on a Friday when everybody is more worried on figuring out their weekend and not the latest gossip.
But something tells me there’s more pictures to come.
Kids have we gotten the memo that taking nude pictures of yourself is a bad idea? Good.
Ive said a 1000 times that I am no fan of Drake, but I am slowly becoming OK with the idea that he’s gonna be in my face for years to come. I’m sure I will come around soon enough, but right now I just can’t do it.
But I have a lot of luv for Trey Songz and Jaime Foxx.
The stars joined forces for a new video recently. Check it out some behind the scenes footage below.
