Black Films Coming to the Big Screen: July Spotlight
Capital City Black Film Festival is proud to bring you this monthly highlight of films with Black casts, Black crew and telling Black stories. Here’s July’s Black Films Coming to the Big Screen spotlight:
Sorry to Bother You
In a dystopian, not-too-distant future, black telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe of material glory. As his friends and co-workers organize in protest of corporate oppression, Cassius falls under the spell of his company’s cocaine-snorting CEO Steve Lift, who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. Sorry to Bother comes to the screen on Thursday, July 5.
The Equalizer 2
Summertime is a perfect time for another great Denzel Washington blockbuster. This sequel looks to be just as thrilling as the first. The Equalizer 2 follows Washington as “Robert McCall” on a quest for justice and vengeance. The film drops July 20.
The First Purge
This prequel showcases the events that lead up to the very first Purge event. It’s jam-packed with some talented Black actors and actresses. Most notable of The First Purge‘s stars includes Y’lan Noel, also known as “Daniel” in the hit HBO series Insecure. Catch the horror film on July 4.
