    dwayne johnson is black? at first i thot why is he on this list, is his son black then i watch the trailer….nope -_-

    • LOL… Yes, The Rock is Samoan and black

  • Elle

    he’s not a black guy, this is not a black film. he’s popular with the idea that he may be black but he never, never ever talks about his race, is there someone else we can choose.

  • Elle

    he’s not even a brother, he never talks about his heritage, he doesn’t date black women and he can never represent. why is he always under black anything, the one drop rule needs to be forgotten when it comes to him he’s like the tiger woods of movies.

    You totally left out Idris Elba, starring in the Sci-Fi Epic Pacific Rim. This movie looks awesome…

    I’m looking forward to 42. I like movies that showcase black history.

  • I love me some Mark Wahlberg too!! All of these movies look good… I hope that “Yelling To The Sky” movie with Zoe Kravitz hits theaters sometime this year too, because I’ve been hearing about it for a minute!
