This looks like a good one. This documentary about civil rights activist Angela Davis took 8 years to make and it’s now available to view at a theater near you (I hope).
Cute little actress Quvenzhané Wallis is on a roll. She is up for an Oscar nomination for her role in Beasts of the Southern Wild, the youngest Best Actress nominee ever.

Willow Smith was originally slated to play the role, but dropped out of the project.
NO! SAY IT AINT SO!!! Toni Braxton did a recent interview with “GMA” and confessed that her heart isn’t in music anymore. Well as a fan who has all of her albums, I’m not happy to hear her say that. But I do understand the music biz is not what it used to be. The singer/actress has focused on her other talents like acting. Toni has a new Lifetime movie “Twist of Faith” that premieres Saturday.
Rapper/actor Kid Cudi will make his film debut in “Need for Speed”. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie is a street-racing movie, based on the Electronic Arts video game series. Kid Cudi will be co-starring with “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul.
Paul will play a small-time street racer who signs up for a New York-to-Los Angeles race to get revenge after he’s framed for the death of a friend. Cudi will play a member of his crew in the movie, which DreamWorks says will seek to capture the tone of Seventies car-culture movies.
