Chadwick Boseman in Marshall

Marshall Trailer #1 (2017) “The Only Way to Get Through a Bigot’s Door is to Break it Down”

Before he was the Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman turned in two of the most impressive biopic performances in recent years portraying baseball icon Jackie Robinson in 42 and soul legend James Brown in Get on Up.  This fall Boseman will be portraying Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice and civil rights pioneer.  The film, directed by Reginald Hudlin, focuses on a case early in Marshall’s career, before he became one of the most formidable lawyers and jurists in American history.  Co-starring with Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, and Josh Gad, Boseman’s Marshall will arrive in theaters October 13, 2017.

  1. Cool! I have a pet peeve with cynical PC Hollywood product, but if they can get the right message out there, artfully and sincerely, I’m there, and everyone else should be there too, with thier kids.

    I was wrong about being wrong about Twin Peakes. After the past few episodes, the entire run, from the 1990-91 series to the current one, is taking on a stature in my heart and mind that is comparable to a certain space opera. I still have to wait to see how it all pans out, and I will never make the mistake of recommending it to just anyone, but I’m happy.

    1. The saga of you and Twin Peaks is one that deserves its own equally cryptic TV show. How excited would Lynch be about the meta concept of someone following the saga of his own work? I think we both know you’d stand a pretty good chance at being written into the saga as the only person aware that the thing is a TV show (and I’ve heard similar up and down reactions from a few other friends over TP as a whole lol).


      1. Well I realize now that Lynch’s films do not have messages, or if they do the messages are tangential. He is just trying to manipulate your emotions, and he is damn good at it.

        Mulholland Drive is relatable because no one’s life turns out the way they thought it would, everyone remembers the hopes they once had and the innocence lost, and everyone looks back and wishes things had been different.

        I am now just sitting back and letting Lynch play me like a violen. I am sick and tired of being coddled by filmmakers. It’s about time someone like Lynch came along to ask me to think to understand his work, and to deliberately give me nightmares. His show is not easily digestible. He gets me to feel things that are complicated. He is a genius, and the new TP is not even halfway over.
