11 minutes ago While the film world is currently dominated by thrilling franchises and shared universes, there are certain filmmakers who are essentially living royalty. One of them is director/writer/producer Spike Lee, who has made hyper stylized dramas that often explore the black experience in America. While he's been busy with his Netflix series She's Gotta Have It, a new Spike Lee joint will soon hit theaters with BlackKklansman.

In a visceral modern thriller from director Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA's most highly-prized and least-understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in. The whole plan sounds pretty easy, but it all goes to hell real fast as seen in the new trailer. Wahlberg's Silva character at one point says, "If … [Read more...] about Final Mile 22 Trailer Features Unreleased Migos Song ‘Is You Ready?’

Larry Moneta, the vice president for student affairs, waited for his usual order from the campus coffee shop - a hot tea and vegan muffin, according to Indy Week. But the vulgar rap song he heard on the speakers bothered him."Get paid ... get paid. ..," Young Dolph raps in the song, using the n-word.
