It came and went in a week at the theaters. So who would do another one? Director Ridley Scott, that's who; he's reportedly signed on to produce and direct a film with Butler, about a failed coup against the president of Equatorial Guinea.

If you live in New York City and you missed past screenings of Raoul Peck’s (Lumumba) most recent offering, Moloch Tropical, well, you’ll get yet another chance to see it! Come on folks – you have ZERO excuses now! I expect every (ok, maybe not every) New Yorker who reads this blog to have seen this film already, and if you haven’t, make an effort to see it when it screens again at the Haiti Film Fest at Spike Lee Screening Room in Long Island University on Dekalb and Hudson, in Brooklyn.
