The official trailer for the highly anticipated film "The Butler" starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey and Terrence Howard has been released. Watch the clip inside and see our real First Lady Michelle Obama posing with NFL superstar Colin Kaepernick inside....

 

For months, we've been hyping up the new Lee Daniels-directed film "The Butler".  Shot on location in New Orleans, we've seen shots of every one from Lenny Kravitz and Mariah Carey to Jesse Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr. shooting scenes for the movie.  The all-star cast helps tell the true story of Eugene Allen (played by Forest Whitaker), who served under eight presidents during his 1952-1986 stint as the White House butler. And in the midst of the story line, we get to see Terrence makeout and do some THINGS with Oprah

The Weinstein Company releases the film on October 18th and we have a first look at the trailer:

Our fabulous First Lady Michelle Obama had a photo-op with cutie San Francsico 49ers superstar and 2013 Super Bowl contender Colin Kaepernick yesterday. Colin, who's become a sports phenomenon with "Kaepernicking" where he kisses his own "guns" posed with the First Lady as she joined in and "Kaepernicked" her own famous guns.  He tweeted, "I got the opportunity to meet one of the greatest women in the world, the first lady @first_Obama and even got her #Kaepernicking". 

FYI, Colin plays a big role with the First Lady's "Let's Move" campaign where he travels around the country promoting physical fitness.

"I's real tired of these kid

"I's real tired of these kid of movies" in my Shug voice! Whats wrong w depicting Blacks in movies w power, forward progression, romance, wealth, facing todays issues, etc???? Why wont sweetazz Lee Daniels create a movie about Black Men like him & their struggles being gay & coming out the closet! Now thats a current issue we need to talk about!

I hear exactly what you're

I hear exactly what you're saying. We have a rich history and the stories should be shared. However, it seems that only a certain segment's being shared: blacks struggle to accepted, victims becoming strong. Movies are a very powerful medium and the images we see of ourselves affect us subconsciously. That's a fact. So it would be nice to more stories of us in our glory, not needing acceptance from whites, etc. The sad part is that when our stories are told, particularly those in East Africa, like Egypt, those mahogany faces are swapped out for Rachel Weisz, Angelina Jolie or Brendan Fraser.

I never sd it wasnt a part of history. you sound ignorant for criticizing my comment when u know im right. and you can take your ass to see it 2 xs if you want thats your prerogative!

Because ALL of OUR stories

Because ALL of OUR stories deserve to be told, not just those that make us look progressive or more like everybody else. Now stop sassin' you KNOW Harpo already told me to beat you!

That is true all of them do

That is true all of them do need to be told BUT when is enough enough? I want to be inspired & uplifted & see that as Blacks we can do good & live the american dream as well. Young Blacks need to know that the good life is attainable. we dont always have to see some old slave shh. Progression, upward movement...isnt that what all these people were fighting for in the 1st place. im not saying forget it & disrespect it but its a new day. dont you think these kinds of movies also add to the racial divide????????

Black people have clearly

Black people have clearly lost their damn minds and forgotten who the fuck they are. Period. And seeing the repetitive image of begging to be accepted by children is totally backward. I guess people have to bang their heads multiple times before the lesson's learned.

Add to the racial divide????

Add to the racial divide???? Shit when has it been undivided??? It's ALWAY going to be racial division until there is NO earth and ALL human forms are DEAD! But I do understand the point you are making.

Highly anticipated?........By

Highly anticipated?........By who? First you had "The Help and now you got "The Butler". I don't care how many "big names" are in it, don't nobody wanna see that shit.

This is why our community is

This is why our community is where it's at right now. Look at where you're at, there was a past that got you to where you're are. Regardless of how you felt.....this stuff happened. So you just want to erase history and pretend like we didn't go through anything? You are a problematic African American. I didn't mind The Help because BOTH my grandmothers were The Help in real life. Where I would love to see MORE black ensemble casts in things other than period pieces, the way that our community is right now, we NEED some of these movies to help REMIND people like you and kids who DON'T know what opportunities they have today. Get some knowledge sister.

The issue isn't that the

The issue isn't that the stories are being told. The issue is what's the motivation for telling these stories. Yes, I've had great-grandmothers, aunts and cousins who were "the help." But they also supported their husbands in their small businesses, some only cleaned homes if they wanted a lil spending money, and some had homes just as nice as the folks they were cleaning. Also, another thing, some of them were desired by the white husbands and sons (Hello Strom Thurmond!). There are multiple ways to tell the story. But it's the same underline theme with these. And it makes it seem as if blacks want to be with whites, living in their communities. Untrue. Blacks were perfectly happy in many of their towns. Thriving, brilliantly. Tulsa and Rosewood aren't the only ones. I've seen lynching exhibits where there were several thriving all-black towns that were trashed by insecure whites (Think Michael Moore's cartoon in "Bowling for Columbine.") Because some folks didn't know how to be descent and allow blacks to have access to good education tools (books, etc.) or even infrastructure in black neighborhoods, integration seemed like the only resolve. But there was a price. So our history is rich. So rich! And I wish the hero stories were shown more. I wish the stories pre-Columbus would be made with brown people depicting the brown saviors That's why movies like "The Butler" and "The Help" rub people the wrong way. And people can feel the way they want about them. We are so vast and beautiful as a people. My wanting to see more positive images of folks who look like me has nothing to do with shame. I love my ancestors. I appreciate what they did for me, for us, for this country, for the world. They've paved a way that is wonderful. But they wouldn't approve of the way some of these stories are being told. I can assure you of that.

Our community is not where

Our community is not where it's at, because of what I stated. (rolls eyes and smh) Nobody is trying to pretend like nothing happened or erase anything, because it can't be erased. We know what went down, but I don't wanna constantly see that shit. I don't care if you didn't mind "The Help" and i'm sure my Grandma was "The Help" along the way as well.......Your Point? What?........ You got an afro and now you think you're the ambassador for black history? smhlol...Take your "Still I Rise" speech and please be seated you fake ass Maya Angelou. lol......GIRL BYE!!!
