Barbershop: The Next Cut
Stars: Ice Cube, Margot Bingham, Common, Nicki Minaj, Anthony Andreson
Directed By: Malcolm D. Lee
Synopsis: It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin and his longtime crew are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.
Our Two Cents: I must admit it I totally want to check this out.
Stars: Gal Gadot, Ryan Reynolds, Alice Eve, Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman
Directed By: Ariel Vromen
