Chris Rock rocks you with laughter
in Paramount Picture's Top Five, in theaters December 12, 2014
On December 12, 2014 Paramount Pictures will release Top Five starring Chris Rock and Rosario Dawson. Rock wrote and directed
Top Five. I was expecting to laugh because Chris Rock is legendary for bringing the funny to what he does, but I did more
"laughing out loud" than I expected. So be prepared because Top Five will rock you with laughter from the beginning
to the end.
Top Five follows comedian Andre Allen (Rock)
who is trying to get his comedic magic back after becoming sober. A sober mind has him rethinking on a lot of things in his
life, like a runaway wedding with a reality star (Gabrielle Union) that he has - for lack of money - been hired to "make
an appearance" at, which has become a very public high-profile event.
In comes journalist
Chelsea Brown (Dawson) from The New York Times, who is also a former alcoholic, who witnesses first-hand his struggle with
his relationship and career. During the interview she helps him with her straight-forward personality, and he helps her through
her relationship woes. As a result they - well - you just have to watch the film to find out.
Five has cameo appearances by what seems to be all Chris' close friends who include Whoopie Goldberg, Jerry Seinfield, Adam
Sandler, and DMX. Top Five co-stars include Ben Vereen, JB Smoove, Kevin Hart, Leslie Jones, Amelia Fowler, Tracey Morgan,
Sherri Shepherd, and Cedric the Entertainer.
The comedy is executive produced by Hip-Hop mogul
Shawn "Jay Z" Carter, and produced by Eli Bush, Barry Diller and Scott Rudin. The IAC Film and Scott Rudin production
Chris Rock's career was nationally launched as a case member of "Saturday Night
Live." As a stand-up comedian Rock was noted by Comedy Central as the 5th greatest stand-up comedian in the country.
The South Carolina native does the voice of Marty (the Zebra) in the Madagascar franchise films, and the hit comedy-series
"Everybody Hates Chris" is based on his childhood. He created and produced the comedy-series which aired on UPN/The
CW from 2005 - 2009. He has garnered three Grammy Awards (comedy albums), and four Emmy Awards (comedy specials). Chris Rock
also served as host of the 77th Academy Awards.

20th Century Fox releases Exodus: Gods and Kings a magnificent remake of the 10 Commandments, in theaters December
I went to a very early viewing of footage from the 20th Century Fox presentation of Exodus: Gods and Kings, to be released
to theaters December 12, 2014, back in September and the Ridley Scott directed remake of the famed 10 Commandments film was
magnificent. Scott stayed close to the Biblical storyline, used the technologies of today and presents it in 3D to bring it
more to-life so we can practically feel the plagues, experience the parting of the sea, and fight out way through the wars
of that era. Makes it worthy of becoming ‘the' film to watch for the story of Moses.
Golden Globe nominated Christian Bale (Batman Forever) is Moses born a
slave, raised as an Eygptian prince, rejected as an adult by the Pharaoh for being a Hebrew, and then used by God as a Prophet
to free 600,000 slaves. With just his faith Moses accomplishes this by showing the Pharaoh that God is real.
(The Great Gatsby) is Egyptian Pharaoh Ramesses II, Oscar winner Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3, Gandhi) is Nun, and Oscar nominated
Sigourney Weaver is Queen Tuya mother of Ramesses II.
Cooper, Bill Collage, Jeffrey Caine, and Steven Zaillian wrote the screenplay, and Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, Michael Schaefer,
Mark Huffam, and Ridley Scott are producers. Exodus: Gods and Kings is a Chernin Entertainment, Scott Free Productions Babieka,
Volcano Films production.
