MORRIS FROM AMERICA gets a new poster and trailer!
A24 and DIRECTV are excited to share the official trailer and poster for MORRIS FROM AMERICA. A smash hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival (where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award and star Craig Robinson received a Special Jury Award for Acting for his touching and nuanced performance in his first dramatic role), MORRIS FROM AMERICA centers on Morris Gentry (Markees Christmas, in an incredible breakout performance) a 13-year-old who has just relocated with his single father, Curtis (Robinson) to Heidelberg, Germany. Morris, who fancies himself the next Notorious B.I.G., is a complete fish-out-of-water—a budding hip-hop star in an EDM world. To complicate matters further, Morris quickly falls hard for his cool, rebellious, 15-year-old classmate Katrin (Lina Keller). Morris sets out against all odds to take the hip-hop world by storm and win the girl of his dreams.
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Chad Hartigan (THIS IS MARTIN BONNER), MORRIS FROM AMERICA is a delightfully original take on growing up, following your dreams, and finding your voice that features an extensive soundtrack of hip-hop standards, including Craig Mack’s “Flava in Ya Ear,” Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy,” Jeru the Damaja’s “Come Clean,” and, featured in the trailer, “Nobody Speak” by DJ Shadow (feat. Run the Jewels). MORRIS FROM AMERICA will be available exclusively on DIRECTV beginning July 7th and opens theatrically in select cities on August 19th.
DreamWorks All Hail King Julien: Season 3 Now Streaming on Netflix!
Season 3 of DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien premieres exclusively on Netflix this Friday, June 17th! We have a clip and stills from the show to share with you. Please see below!
This season, alongside Danny Jacobs’ Emmy®-winning comedic work as King Julien, All Hail King Julien has attracted accomplished talent with A-level guest stars including Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family, The Royal Tenenbaums), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development), and John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Yes Man).
You might be familiar with the Emmy®-winning show, but did you know that All Hail King Julien isn’t just a tropical adventure for children? In fact, the show has become a mecca of pop culture phenomena and not-so-subtle adult humor, bringing the jungle of Madagascar closer to modern society than you might think. With skewering parallels to our addictive consumption of coffee and ridiculous “high fashion” trends, biting representations of class and beauty standards, and emotional characters that challenge stereotypical gender roles, All Hail King Julien produces witty observations that are meant for modern-day thinkers of all ages.
Even the television industry is taking notice! Last year, the show was crowned Outstanding Children’s Animated Program; this April, the show took home the coveted award for Outstanding Writing in an Animated Program for a total of 5 Emmy® wins since the show’s creation in 2014.
