12 YEARS A SLAVE
A glimpse of African-American history hits the big screen once again Friday. Directed by London native Steve McQueen, this film tells the story of Solomon Northup, a born-free New Yorker kidnapped in 1841 and sold into slavery. As he struggles to adjust to his new life, a chance at freedom presents itself. Based on the autobiography of the same title, this powerful movie presents the heartrending horrors of slavery in a way not captured before. Check out our exclusive chat with the star of the film, Chiwetel Ejiofor.
I’M IN LOVE WITH A CHURCH GIRL
The title makes it clear what the film is about. But just in case you’re stumped, Ja Rule plays a successful entrepreneur with a criminal history. But when he locks eyes with a devout churchgoer and finds both love and faith, his past suddenly catches up with him. This real life story reminds us of the goodness of forgiveness and redemption. Watch Ja Rule’s return back to the entertainment industry, and make it a date night. See what the leading man had to say about the film here.

Standing on the stage of a packed Madison Square Gardens, Hart does just that and explains himself. Pick up this stand-up or enter our giveaway to add this one to your Kevin Hart collection.
