Chris Rock & Martin Lawrence New Film Creating New Controversy Amongst Media Outlets

We just discovered that the first official trailer for the new Chris Rock and Martin Lawrence film titled Death at a Funeral has just been released online and we seem to have a little controversy brewing amongst the media already.

First we have to state the facts of the movie in case you haven’t hear about it; Death at a Funeral is a remake of the 2007 British movie of the same name, Death at a Funeral which stars Rock and Lawrence, as well as Tracy Morgan and Kevin Hart just to name a few and takes place at a funeral ceremony that turns into a debacle of exposed family secrets and misplaced bodies. Now add all of that with a family twist.

Several media outlets have contacted us to suggest that the film is extremely racist amongst other things, and that they will report this as so. Some outlets have already launched their opinions as such, but we will reserve that right until we have seen the film. After all no one has screened the film yet, only the trailer. To us, it’s a bit difficult make any informed decision based on this few-minute trailer so let’s just wait and see. In the meantime here is the trailer;

VH1 Jumps Into Housewives Genre With New NBA Wives Series

We just discovered from the VH1 network that they are preparing to launch a new series, patterned almost exactly after The Atlanta Housewives, titled Basketball Wives. It seems as if this is the new genre now, after the success and spin-offs of all of the Housewives titled shows.

Anyway, the eight-episode half-hour series will show the wives and girlfriends of players Shaquille O'Neal, Eric Williams, Antoine Walker, Jermaine O'Neal and Udonis Haslem's. (We ask why are girlfriends on the show?)

We also hear that Shed Media is producing the series, with co-star Shaunie O'Neal also earning an executive producer credit, even though we recently discovered that she recently separated from her NBA All-Star husband Shaquille O’Neal. How this will affect the show will remain to be seen since the majority of the show was filmed before the break-up.

"Having been around these remarkable women for several years, I have always recognized that behind every NBA star is a strong, exceptional woman, one who must deal with the unique challenges of being married to the game as well as the player," said Shaunie O'Neal.

The series premieres March 15, 2010.
