"The Butler."

Screenings of the film are apparently being held around the country (whether private or public), as I've read a few reactions to the film, primarily on social networking sites. And all I can say is that, based on what I've seen/heard thus far, this will likely be one of those polarizing movies, that sharply divides audiences. 

Can't wait for the conversations that follows after the film is released in just over 2 months, on August 16th

Here's the first poster for Lee Daniels' The Butler, which covers several decades in the life of Eugene Allen, the White House butler who served many presidents, and is loaded with a cast that includes: Forest WhitakerOprah WinfreyDavid OyelowoColman DomingoJohn CusackAlan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Melissa LeoLiev SchreiberJesse WilliamsAml AmeenLenny Kravitz, Cuba Gooding Jr and many more.

Music for the film is composed by the legendary Quincy Jones.

Laura Ziskin Production, The Butler is produced by Pamela Oas Williams, the late Laura Ziskin, Lee Daniels, and Cassian Elwes. It's executive produced by Hilary Shor and Adam Merims; and co-produced by David Jacobson.

Check out the poster below; watch the trailer underneath if you haven't seen it:

    " you told Harpo to beat me. All my life I had to fight, I had to fight my daddy, I had to fight my uncles, I had to fight my brothers. Girl child ain't safe in a family of mens, but I never thought I'd have to fight in my own house" ~ Oprah, aka Sofia & Gloria Gaines ( she fired Harpo and married the butler)

    And I'll be there on August 16th.
