‘Takers’ To Premiere

Posted by admin with 4 Comments

Exclusive: ‘Takers’ To Premiere at American Black Film Festival
Black Voices has exclusively learned that Screen Gems’ ‘Takers’ will be the opening night film for the 14th annual American Black Film Festival (ABFF), which will run in Miami from June 23-26.

‘Takers’ stars Matt Dillon, Idris Elba, Paul Walker, Zoe Saldana, Jay Hernandez, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Michael Ealy, Chris Brown, and Hayden Christensen.

The film revolves around a notorious group of criminals (played by Elba, Walker, T.I., Brown, Christensen and Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective (Matt Dillon) who is hell-bent on solving the case.

Screen Gems will release the film in theaters on August 20.

Hayden Christensen on “The Lazarus Effect”

Posted by DHN Editor with 20 Comments

By Hayden Christensen

Editors note: More than 20 million people have died of HIV/AIDS in Africa, despite the fact it is now a preventable and treatable disease.  “The Lazarus Effect” campaign features dozens of celebrity artists helping to raise awareness of the value of 40 cents – the cost of antiretroviral medicine needed for people with HIV/AIDS in Africa to survive – by comparing trivial items worth the same amount (a stick of gum, a smear of lipstick, etc).

I recently went on a trip to Africa and came back with the need to get involved and help raise awareness about AIDS.  I was familiar with the (RED) campaign and the remarkable work they have done and are currently doing and wanted to be a part of it.  One of our initiatives is to raise AIDS awareness through “The Lazarus Effect.”  This inspiring documentary airs tonight on HBO. If you miss it there, you can see it on YouTube afterwards.

“The Lazarus Effect” addresses one of the world’s worst epidemics—AIDS in Africa. It focuses on the transformative effect of antiretroviral medicine and shows us how someone who is severely suffering from AIDS can regain their health in as little as 40 days by simply taking two pills a day that only cost 40 cents. The narrative of the documentary is told from the perspective of patients and doctors who are battling AIDS in their every day life. The story that unfolds in this documentary does not focus on the devastation and despair, but on survival. It shows what the human impact of smart aid programs has been.

Just eight years ago there were only 50,000 people across the continent who could access ARV (antiretroviral) treatment as it cost over $10,000 a year. Treatment was virtually impossible since the majority of people living in Africa make less than $2 a day.  At that time, AIDS was a death sentence and more than 6,000 people were dying each day from a preventable and treatable disease. Today, that number has been nearly cut in half. Thanks to the efforts of global health organizations the cost of these pills is less than $158 a year. This means that programs offering aid can afford to get them to the millions of people who are in need.

Three million people are on ARV treatment today in Africa, but there are still millions of people across the continent who don’t have access to the basic treatment needed to fight AIDS. They are dying, and the worst part is that treatment is available. This documentary shows what is possible when there is access to treatment.

I hope people watch the documentary and are inspired to help raise funds to support the incredible programs that ultimately save lives. I urge people to visit JOINRED.COM and learn how they can get involved.

How today’s stars will age

Posted by admin with 4 Comments

Hayden Christensen, 29
Youthful good looks. Money. Fame. Talent. A major role in the greatest movie series of all time: “Star Wars.” No wonder women love him and men want to be him. Hayden is a young Hollywood Adonis, with a baby face that will age well over the next few decades. He has a nice head of hair, piercing eyes, full lips and just a little roundness at the tip of his nose, causing him to look like the boy next door that all the girls want to date. Guys like him make normal guys like me look bad.

Thanks Lauren!

Has Natalie Portman ever heard your track “I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman?”
I’ve never met her. But I do know when she came to Canada for a film festival a friend of mine who works for “Entertainment Tonight” in Canada, at the end of the junket he asked her, “Have you heard of K-OS?” He had this on film so he sent it to me. She was like, “Yeah, I have heard of K-OS.” “Well, he has this song saying he wishes he knew you.”

I ended up meeting Hayden Christensen on a plane from L.A., he’s Canadian as well. He was like, “Yo man, I’m a fan of yours.” And I was like “Dude, I’m a ‘Star Wars’ freak.”

And we get to talking and he’s like, “Do you know I used to listen to The Rascalz CD and Natalie Portman would come in my trailer— The Rascalz are some friends I did a track with—and she loved her song?” Way back when they were doing “Star Wars.”

It’s interesting, man. Music, even meeting Hayden, putting energy out there, who you want to know…how quick it comes back to you. I think we already know who we’ll get along with. If you like someone as an actor, they probably like your music. I think she’s a fantastic actress.

First Look at Vanishing On 7th Street

Posted by admin with 1 Comment

Originally, Vanishing on 7th Street is described as more of a psychological thriller about these five survivors who are fighting to stay alive “while grappling with the meaning of existence,” since they realize they may in fact be the last people on earth. Sounds like a Stephen King-inspired thriller about some people trapped in this one location, which reminds me a bit of The Mist. I hope this is much better than that film (I didn’t love it), but with Brad Anderson directing, I don’t think we have to worry. Vanishing on 7th Street stars Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo, but doesn’t have a US distributor or release date.

First stunning stills for Brad Anderson’s Vanishing on 7th Street
Yes, that Brad Anderson, the one who did the brilliant film The Machinist is back with a post apocalyptic drama which looks like it has a noirish feel. It stars Hayden Christensen and John Leguizamo among others and sounds utterly awesome.


A mysterious, seemingly global blackout yields countless populations to simply vanish, leaving only their clothes and possessions behind. A small handful of survivors band together in a dimly-lit tavern on 7th Street, struggling to combat the apocalyptic horror. Realizing they may in fact be the last people on earth, the darkness hones in on them alone.
