FIRST PROMO LOOK: Jennifer Hudson & Terrence Howard's "Winnie" Poster

​ ​ ​ ​

Here's the first look at Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard as Winnie & Nelson Mandela in a promo.  Their new bipoc, Winnie, is sweeping the film festivals this year.  And the movie will soon hit the big screen.

 

Check their new promo poster inside....

It's gotten rave reviews from critics, and has gotten some criticism from Winnie Mandela herself.  But Jennifer Hudson is putting her Oscar-winning acting chops back on display with Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard for their new Winnie movie.

The movie, shot in South Africa, tells a story that chronicles the life of political activist Winnie Mandela from her childhood through her marriage and her husband's incarceration.

A few stills from the movie:

The 15 million dollar budget is sure to lend way to a box office hit. No release date for the U.S. has been set.  But it will be shown in Canada this December.

I luv Angela Bassett, but she

I luv Angela Bassett, but she is not the ONLY black actress that can do serious black roles. Geezzzz, let somebody else play a leading role as a mother or wife! Congrats to J-Hud!!!!

Because if you're serious

Because if you're serious about quickly replacing your full time income (just to start) and spending your time doing what YOU want to do, I'm ready to show you exactly how I was able to go from $600 to my name to bringing in $6,000 per month like clockwork. And what's best is it will work for you even if you're totally clueless about the Internet or technology, have no experience or education and just wanna chill out in your house and never talk to anybody. This system works because YOU don't have to! Get the details .. Just type in your name, email and phone below. Then get ready to experience something different. Something that actually works!! http://BeInspired.OneBigPowerline.com ttys God Bless:)

Oscar worthy performance is

Oscar worthy performance is what I have heard. I hope she gets another one to stuff down the haters throat. Hating a** idiots. I guess you would be happy for her if she was sitting in the projects somewhere with 6 babies, six baby daddys and living off welfare, then you would be content.

I tell. You n*ggas never stop

I tell. You n*ggas never stop trying to tear each other down. Not one of you have seen this film yet but all this negativity. SMDH!! That is why a lot of you will never prosper because you are too bust trying to rip people apart and block your own blessings. What is for Jennifer is for Jennifer and you can't stop it, but you can stop your own by being nasty and negative. Do better negros!!

I never followed anyboby

I never followed anyboby until i heard Jennifer Hudson on American Idol the first time. It was then God let me know she will be one of the biggest stars ever born. This is just the beginning for Jennifer. Jennifer if you are reading this. Please do not let the negative bloggers who can not act at all and have not even seen the film yet but can determine how well you can act. Keep on doing what God is given you to do and we will continue to see you at the top. God have me praying for you Jennifer. Jennifer remember no weapon in hell can stop where God is taking you.

Jennifer Hudson always comes

Jennifer Hudson always comes across as very arrogant and snobbish. Lo and behold, turns out that she is EXACTLY that! She has a terrible attitude and she really showed her true colors when she had a "twitter" altercation with someone who USED to be her fan. Jennifer Hudson is annoying, arrogant, and just needs to go away....and may she take those annoying ass Weight Watchers commercials with her!

Are you serious? Like who are

Are you serious? Like who are you to say these things. Do you really know her, do you go over her house are you friends with her? Only a person who is close to her would know these things. You are the one who is sounding ignorant? Bringing up the twitter altercation is so childish and it is so over. Nobody even cares about that plus I an tired of people who hold these celebrities to such a high standard. I'm sure you have gotten angry or lost your cool, why can't a celebrity? They are just as human as the next one. Get a life and stop making crazy accusations!

This looks like a Lifetime

This looks like a Lifetime movie. The makeup and wardrobe look amateurish and costume-y. Everything about this looks low budget and forced down to the fake gaze in the eyes to the IPAGES do it yourself movie poster. AMESS.com....I bet Winnie is laughing her azz off at this crap.

LIES! The reviews have NOT been favorable at all. Most fo the critics trashed the movie, hence why the release has been delayed for months. Even Winnie Mandela wasn't pleased at all. Expect it to go str8 to DVD.

Yes, that's pretty much what

Yes, that's pretty much what I have heard and read about this movie also. Not a huge fan of Jennifer's acting ability, but will probably watch it anyway...when it goes to video, that is. And too bad Angela Bassett didn't play opposite Terrence Howard in this movie; now that would have been a powerful acting duo!!

The movie itself has not

The movie itself has not gotten the best reviews BUT in each one that I read, they said Jennifer's acting is one of the strong points. I was skeptical too but they (who are NEVER nice) said she proved she is an oscar worthy actress. IDK how I feel about Terrence, but im gonig to check it out regardless. How many black films are there? Exactly.

Think this would work better as a TV movie. Who wants to see a movie about Winnie? Nelson - okay, Winnie no.

I swear blogs bring out the

I swear blogs bring out the worst part of people. Let's just be happy that in a time of whats seems to be overt rasicm that a historial movie of love and life is being told about an African woman and during a time of what seems like blacks can't get work that there are at least two working and playing the only black in an all white cast or a black in the group so that every race is represented. I just think whether you love it hate it support it or protest against it stop spreadingyour negativity.

this is not right at all,it

this is not right at all,it is highly disrespectful to her because in no way can a film director portray the life of a person without the person acknowledging the truth of it. The things people will do for money.She should sue these producers,for violation of personal identity and misconstrued images
