In LUKE CAGE, Marvel’s Netflix series about the reluctant hero (Mike Colter) with indestructible skin, Alfre Woodard plays Mariah Dillard.

MOONLIGHT: Composer Nicholas Britell gets classically serious in the down low hood – Interview

In a tough urban environment, being loud and proud is something reserved for the macho occupations of drug dealing and gangsterism, certainly not in the far more vulnerable act of proclaiming oneself as gay. It’s a contrast that marks both filmmaker Barry Jenkins’ artistically subtle approach to MOONLIGHT, and his composer Nicholas Britell’s classically ethereal score. As divided into three “chapters,” Jenkins paints the quiet coming of age of Chiron, the seemingly meek son of a crack addicted mother who falls under the foster fatherhood of the sympathetic dealer Juan (Mahershala Ali, currently impressing as the far more villainous crime kingpin […]Read On »

LUKE CAGE: Cheo Hodari Coker and Mike Colter power fists onto Netflix – Interview

LUKE PAGE poster | ©2016 Netflix

Luke Cage, as played by Mike Colter, was introduced last year on Netflix’s MARVEL’S JESSICA JONES. The hero with impenetrable epidermis seemed an ideal romantic match for Krysten Ritter’s super-strong heroine – until Luke found out that Jessica was (while brainwashed) responsible for the death of his beloved wife. Now Colter and Luke have the title in MARVEL’S LUKE CAGE, which debuts its entire thirteen-episode first season on Netflix Friday, September 30. Luke has returned to Harlem and wants to keep a low profile, but a brewing gang war may make that impossible. Executive producer Cheo Hodari Coker (a writer/producer […]Read On »
