Movie Preview: Let’s take another shot at “The Color Purple”

Iconic novel, mutli-Oscar-nominated film by Spielberg, Whoopi and Danny Glover and Oprah and yet not widely-accepted Alice Walker adaptation when it came out back in the ’80s.

So let’s take another shot. Is that the new Little Mermaid in this Oprah-Spielberg-Quincy Jones produced remake? Why yes it is Halle Bailey.

Taraji and Coleman Domingo and Louis Gossett Jr. and singer/bandleader Jon Batiste and David Alan Grier are the biggest names in the cast. But then, I don’t know H.E.R.

More musical? More magical realism? Directed by Ghanese filmmaker?

Christmas Day.
