Tony

Can't wait for this movie to come out! I know the media machine will be singing the praises of Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson, but the one to watch is Anika Noni Rose! She wowed me when I saw her on Broadway in "Caroline or Change". She played a 15 year old girl, but her voice moved effortlessly from a childlike quality to a deep, mature soulful sound. Her amazing performance allowed her to win the Tony Award that year for Best Featured Actress in a Musical. I liked her so much that I even bought the terrible movie, "From Justin to Kelly" because she was in it. Counting down the days till next Christmas!!!

Oh thanks for the pictures. For some reason the trailer wasn't loading for me. It looks exqisite. Tony is soooo right; Anika Noni was THE reason to watch that horrible movie. Well, her voice and Justin's little melons.

Rod,

A Belated Happy New Year to you and yours. Thanks for all of the good info in the past and I eagerly look forward to viewing your site in the future. GOD BLESS.

I echo the comments made about Anika Noni Rose. Loved here in "Caroline or Change" and she's the only seasonsed actor among the Dreams.

And we know Eddie has his own special role for Johnny. We're just not sure who'll get "top" billing.

But I have to wonder, why is it no Black director ever gets to helm these big Black cast pictures?

Gene

Yes, yes, Bernie. I'm sure Eddie has an opening that Johnny can fill.

Michael

Rod. YOU'D BETTER WORK!

These girls look wonderful. I'm so glad that you took the time to go behind the scenes and show it all to us.

Bernie has a valid point but what quality black director could do this? Between our lack of interest and the studios refuse to give us a chance, sometimes we are on the sidelines.

Rod, since you have created a category for this film, THE QUEENS DEMAND WEEKLY UPDATES!!

SEE!

THIS IS WHY YOU ARE THE MASTER, BABY!!!!

UPFRONT!

AHEAD!

DETAILED AND DESCRIPTIVE!

YOU ARE THE BLOGBEAST!!!

I'm glad for Jennifer. She deserves her 15-minutes and more.

If interested, I think Robert Townsend or Spike Lee could have directed this movie easily.

Joseph

Why those Beyonce look white in those pictures?

david

I thought I was the only one that noticed Beyonce's new skin-color. Good lord, what is this girl up to? Is she going to pull the MJ trick on us? Hope not (although I wouldn't mind if she opted for a race change).

I see that Jennifer is still self-medicating with sugar-coated doughnuts. I love her so much, I can't wait to see her in Dreamgirls.

Yes, Anika rocks - can't figure out why she did that Clarkson movie.

Jennifer is gonna rip it, watch and see

"AND I'M TELLING YOU!!!"

algie

Chango

Interesting, nothing is said about Danny Glover.

marcus

shouldn't eddy play the agent, and Jamie play the singer? seems like they'd be better suited if they switched... all the same looks like a show I can take my moms to.

Bobby

I'm glad that Bill Condon is doing directing this movie version of "Dreamgirls." This movie has been too long in the making, and it needs someone who is passionate about it at its helm.
