SNEAK PEEKS: Queen Latifah REVEALS New Will Smith TEASER For Talk Show + Idris Elba's LATEST "Mandela" Trailer
Queen Latifah is gearing up for the big launch of The Queen Latifah Show with the release of some fun sneak peeks! Watch the clips inside and the new "Mandela" trailer.
Starting Monday, September 16, 2013, actress and producer Queen Latifah returns to daytime television with "The Queen Latifah Show".
The chat fest is produced by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's Overbrook Entertainment and Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit along with Sony Pictures TV. So it's only right Mr. Smith kicks off the premiere with an appearance.
In anticipation of the debut, Queen Latifah has released a fun sneak peak of the premiere as well as a clip of her new tv set (which was designed by Lenny Kravitz!).

And at the movies.....
We finally have a glimpse at "Luther" actor Idris Elba starring alongside Naomie Harris in their title roles for ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’ (November 29th). You'll recall that Idris and Naomie aren't the only actors bringing the lives of Nelson and Winnie Mandela to life on the big screen as Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard will soon hit theaters in Winnie (September 6).
But unlike the Hudson/Howard project (which Winnie Mandela does not support) Idris and Naomie have the support of the Mandela family. According to Flicks And Bits, MANDELA was made with the full support and endorsement of Mr. Mandela, the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory. In fact, South African producer Anant Singh spent 16 years developing the film before they even began production. Now that's how you make a tribute movie.
Based on the amount of research and effort put into the Idris Elba project, it may be pretty obvious which movie will go down in history as official...
