Lena Waithe says she believes Queen & Slim has the potential to become a classic film

first_imgL-R – Daniel Kaluuya, Matsoukas, Waithe/Photo – Eric Charbonneau(NEW YORK) — With a strong opening weekend for Lena Waithe’s feature film debut Queen & Slim, the Emmy winner tells ABC Audio that she believes fans have the ability to make her new romantic action-drama a classic. “To me what you take away from it is what you bring to it,” Waithe says. “I think that to me is my mission as an artist. I never want to tell people how to feel. I never want to be in control over how people receive my art.”She continues, “The rest really up to people… and they really make it what it is, you know. To me, Do the Right Thing, Boyz n the Hood, Love Jones. Those movies are classics. Not just because the artists, but because of what the people have said. And the people have kept those movies alive and the people keep revisiting those films. Even more so, I will say, than critics.”Waithe’s film, which she wrote and executive-produced, stars Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith as a new couple who go on the run after a minor traffic infraction turns deadly. Waithe hopes her film follows in the footsteps of films she grew up on that later became classics.“Black people are the reason why Love Jones is so talked about… is the reason why The Five Heartbeats is so phenomenal,” she explains. “Because… I love that story.” So far, Waithe’s dream seems to be coming true. Thanks to the support of fans and celebrity friends like Snoop Dogg, Kelly Rowland, Big Sean, and Lil Rel, who decided to buy-out screenings of the film, Queen & Slim brought in an estimated $11.7 million for the three-day weekend and $15.8 over the five-day weekend.Queen & Slim, directed by Melina Matsoukas, is in theaters.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Broncos’ Vic Fangio addresses Emmanuel Sanders’ ‘living in a world of suck’ comment

first_img Odell Beckham Jr. says loss to Rams ‘will be very good for’ Browns Broncos coach Vic Fangio had a simple explanation for Emmanuel Sanders’ postgame comments Sunday. The wide receiver told reporters after Denver’s 27-16 loss to the Packers that the team was “living in a world of suck.” Fangio was asked about Sanders’ statement when he met with reporters one day later.  “You just have a strong upper lip, look at the positives, realize what the negatives are, do your best to correct those negatives and know who you are as a person, as a team and as a player and as a coach,” Fangio said. “We’ve all had some success at different degrees throughout our careers, even the players, especially the young ones, and us as coaches. We’ve got to just stick to it and get through the hard times.”Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco completed 20 of his 29 passes for 213 yards with an interception against Green Bay while Courtland Sutton finished with a team-high five receptions for 87 yards. Phillip Lindsay rushed for Denver’s only two touchdowns in the loss.  Broncos’ Emmanuel Sanders after loss to Packers: ‘We’re living in a world of suck’ “He was just repeating what I had said in the locker room after the game,” Fangio said. “I told them, ‘We’re going to have to deal with everybody thinking we suck.’ All of us, not just players—coaches, everybody, the whole organization — we need to deal with that. He was basically just repeating what I had said.”Emmanuel Sanders: “We’re living in a world of suck.”#4Broncos @CBSDenver— Michael Spencer (@MichaelCBS4) September 22, 2019Denver stayed with the Packers for most of the game but ultimately fell at Lambeau Field to drop to 0-3 in 2019.  Related News Kyler Murray: Cardinals offense ‘got predictable’ in Week 3 loss to Panthers Take ’em with you, @I_CU_Boy!#DENvsGB— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) September 22, 2019“We’ve got the players here to win,” Fangio said. “I believe in these players, I enjoy being around them every day. They’re a bunch of good guys. They’re trying their butts off. We just have to play a little bit better. Along with that, we have to coach better. If we’re breaking down fundamentally in certain areas at critical times, that is an indictment on us as coaches too, not just the players.”The Broncos will face the Jaguars in Week 4. They last made the playoffs in 2015.last_img read more

Steel Sensations…Jones or Gradkowski?

first_imgLandry jones (AP Photo/File)As we are less than two weeks away from the start of training camp, it’s become the time to start thinking about position battles that will be taking place.  We all know who the starting QB is and we are surely all thankful for having one of the best in the business to lead the way.  However, an extremely important position battle is for the right to back up Big Ben. In the event he gets hurt, who should the Steelers call upon?They’ve left their options to two veterans they’ve had on the roster for the last 4 years, Bruce Gradkowski, who missed all of last season but has a decent amount of starting experience or Landry Jones who elevated himself to the number two job last season and garnered some success while starting  a few games when called upon.While Gradkowski does have the more accomplished career, he hasn’t played much at all since joining the Steelers a few years ago. He’s older than Jones and he’s coming off a season in which he was on IR and couldn’t even practice with the team.  Sure, he’ll have training camp and the pre season to knock off the rust but does it make sense now to have him as the backup or does it make more sense to continue to develop Jones and maintain him as the number two for several more seasons?If you haven’t guessed what I think just yet then let me spell it out for you, I believe the job should go to Jones. He played well enough to be the number two guy last season. He caught some flak from the fans for not living up to their standards but when Big Ben is who you’re being compared to, it’s hard to live up to those standards, no matter who you are.  I think the fact that he’ still young, he played some significant snaps last year, got first team reps with guys like Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton, to name a few; and had some success along the way, provides the right recipe for Jones being that guy this season.Time will tell and both guys will play it out on the field. My suspicion is the Steelers expect the job to go to Gradkowski and I assume he feels that way too or he probably wouldn’t have signed on to come back this season but I think the job should and ultimately will go to Jones.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association – Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.
