“You have the right to remain silent”

USA Open: October 24, 2019 (Scottsdale AZ)

Atlas Distribution Company—Featuring: Adam Carolla, Dennis Prager, Tim Allen, Jordan Peterson, Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Ben Shapiro, Dave Rubin, Cornel West, etc.

NO SAFE SPACES reveals how identity politics and the suppression of free speech are spreading into every part of society and threatening to divide America.

The First Amendment and the very idea of free speech are under attack in America today. A growing number of Americans dont’t believe you have the right to speak your mind if what you have to say might offend someone, somewhere. They advocate for ‘safe spaces’ in which people won’t be offended by ideas they may find troubling. But is that what America is about? In NO SAFE SPACES, comedian and podcast king Adam Carolla and radio talk show host Dennis Prager travel the country, talking to experts on the right and left, tour college campuses and examine their own upbringings to try to understand what is happening in America today and what free speech in America should look like.

Universal Pictures—Starring: Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Chloë Sevigny, Indya Moore, Bokeem Woodbine, Benito Martinez / Director: Melina Matsoukas

A couple’s first date takes an unexpected turn when a police officer pulls them over.

From Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe (Netflix’s ‘Master of None’) and Melina Matsoukas, the director of Beyonce’s “Formation” and the Nike “Equality” campaign, comes Makeready’s new drama, ‘Queen & Slim.’

While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith, in her first starring feature-film role), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.

As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances, and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

Joining a legacy of films such as “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Thelma & Louise,” “Queen & Slim” is a consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence.

USA Open: December 13, 2019

Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company—Director: Clint Eastwood / Screenwriter: Billy Ray / Starring: Olivia Wilde, Jon Hamm, Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates

Directed by Clint Eastwood and based on true events, RICHARD JEWELL is a story of what happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth.

“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.

The film stars Oscar winners Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) as Watson Bryant and Kathy Bates (“Misery,” TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Richard’s mom, Bobi; Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver”) as the lead FBI investigator; Olivia Wilde (“Life Itself”) as Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Kathy Scruggs; and Paul Walter Hauser (“I, Tonya”) stars as Richard Jewell.
