Another f'in movie about slavery. Never watch another one. I don't care who's in it. Of course the industry will continue to finance that shyt. Keeping "for profit" black trauma at the forefront.

Was Chris Rock present?

I’m really tired of the Slavery movies. Can we please place ourselves in different roles.

These recent slavery films have been different than in the previous century; they're not torture porn; they actually focus on a storyline that isn't demeaning to black folks. I just finished Keke Palmer's film "Alice", and I highly recommend that everyone watch this! The film is based on a true story about an actual plantation that was still in existence during the 70s. It was tucked away in an isolated area of (in real life it was Louisiana) Georgia. The woman, who the film is based off of, did yours across the country documenting her experience. My point is, if we don't watch these films (slavery related) we can't truly learn what our ancestors endured and take steps from repeating said history. Just like the upcoming midterms in November; some states have slavery on the ballot to be voted on. Y'all keep thinking Democrats and Republicans are the same, but Republicans are the ones revoking Roe v Wade; Republicans are the ones trying to block student loan forgiveness; Republicans are the ones who are trying to bring back slavery in some states, while outlawing interracial dating in others. It is not a game; we need to support Democrats and we need support filmmakers who make movies about slavery. It's important for all black Americans.

A-lister who never needed a private screening with Hollyweird friends before so why now? Is he pulling out all the stops to prove people still like him? Willard must've really hit rock bottom mentally.

I'm tired of the kind of movies we usually see, but I'm here for films based on The 1619 Project. white people don't want us to see, read, or even think about enslaved people as central to the development of American institutions. That's the movie I wanna see.

Will is talented but he ain't pullin' off that accent for me. Giving this a hard pass from.

If we can truthfully tell our story then who will?

@10:
If white people didn't want you to see tis movie then why was it backed by apple?
Enough with the white narrative already.
get off the floor already, no one holding you down but your own mind.

Dave Chapelle was there? Wasn’t he just talking smack with Kevin Hart and Chris Rock about Will? Now he’s up in his face like they are besties, supporting this project! This is hilarious! That’s why taking sides is stupid. Mofo’s like Dave go where the money and clout is at.

I’d prefer we tell our own story. Slave movies shouldn’t go away just because you’re embarrassed. Are you embarrassed your people died for you to have freedom of speech? Are you embarrassed that you can do all the things your ancestors could never do and you now take advantage of it. I’m not embarrassed. My people fought, did the most and died for me to be here today. I live a good life and forever thank them.

This looks good. F the Academy. Will shouldn't stop his grind and just keep right on perfecting his art. We don't need their awards.

Celebrities always kiss each other's a$$es. Guess what Will it doesn't matter if celebs still like you. The general public, aka fans are the ones that pay to watch your movies and keep you famous. Private screenings for people that are just going to tell you how great the movie is even if it's trash seems counter productive. Also if white people are still mad about that slap they will try to destroy you.

@10 Black folks ain't interested in that. History? No. They want Paid in Full/Power type movies. Drug dealing, killing, betrayal, and Gucci. Much rather glorify that than learn anything that matters.

Vote red 🔴 in November & in 2024. Time to leave the democratic plantation. The democrats don’t support reparations so why should we support them? We need real tangible’s not fish fry’s & a pat on the head. The democrats have lost the black vote so gon’ & pander to immigrants. The red wave is coming! & I’m non partisan, but the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Did we even exist prior to slavery? We’re done with the coonery… looking towards the future.

@12:58 you need to take some community college lessons in writing Black vernacular before you try to i itate us. White troll on the premises.

I cannot imagine one more way a slave story can be told. Why they want to keep taking us back to where it all began when they act like the opportunities to move forward never came and alot of em still kooning. Most in that same room not married to not one black Queen. not even Will all he ever wanted was a hood booga who can wear heals.

I am sure it will be an excellent movie. However I cannot ever watch anymore slavery movie, it insite too much rage, and trauma in me, just seeing that clip alone caused tears to fall out my eyes, as a psychic medium I have tapped into akashic records and seen, the horrors of slavery, movies like this makes me want to kill white people, I'm already bipolar, manic depressive with psychosis , and a practitioner of Obeah. I don't want to leave the theater in a rage, and go home doing spiritual work on random ass white people. Taking lives that did nothing to me. Movies like this Nubians are called black people, feel on an ancestral level, and it's like being retraumatized all over again. I can't imagine walking out of a theater happy after seeing this. No thanks.

Give me a movie on Black Wall Street and show how we had something good until hunkies destroyed that too. They destroy everything we do when we start coming up and sticking together. Yt's flooded drugs into our communities. That's a big reason for the decline of our race. Anything rachet is the norm now. We have always been a proud race that have proven we can be successful. Yt's see that and get jealous. They find ways to lie on us, incarcerate our ppl, no jobs/glass ceiling, worst education, murder us in the streets on camera and punish us for just being alive. Pls VOTE candidates out of office that don't have our best interest or run for the seat yourself.

@10:03. How the hell do you know he’s never had a private screening of his movie?
