A few of your fave YBF celebs are on the promo trail promoting their upcoming projects. Peep pics of Will Smith, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tessa Thompson, Michael B. Jordan and more inside….
Last night in Hollywood….
A debonair Will Smith stepped out to promote Peter Landesman’s upcoming sports flick Concussion for a special screening at the 2015 AFI FEST held at the TCL Chinese Theatre. The NFL drama is expected to hit theaters on Christmas Day. (Hmm…gunning for that Oscar Award).
The 47-year-old hunk will be playing American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma. Once he attempts to go public with his discoveries, he finds himself fighting against some of the most powerful institutions in the world.
Back on the carpet…
The Hollywood vet chopped it up with singer Leon Bridges who wrote a track for the film titled, “So Long.”
Beyond The Lights starlet Gugu Mbatha-Raw looked amazing on the carpet in an army green gator skin floor length gown and deep red lippie. This is a very bold look, but she totally pulled it off.
She will star as Prema Mutiso, wife to Dr. Bennet Omalu and mother of his two children.
Co-star Hill Harper, who will play Christopher Jones, was front-and-center for last night’s special screening.
Cycle House Instructor Nichelle Hines came out to support.
Southpaw director Antoine Fuqua kept it dapper in a blue suit on the carpet before checking out the flick.
After the show, it’s the after party….
Lead stars Gugu and Will were all smiles for the after show festivities.
Undefeated boxing champ Floyd Mayweather loves to party, so he was in the mix to celebrate.
Actress Sara Lindsey, who also stars in the film, made her rounds chopping it up with her co-stars Will and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
Creed stars Tessa Thompson and Michael B. Jordan are still heavy on the promo trail to promote the Rocky sequel, set to hit theaters November 25th
The twosome came out to support their new film but to also support a good cause.
The YBF stars joined forces with Warner Bros. digital campaign #IFightFor where they honored Big Brothers Big Sister of Metro Atlanta personalized message entitled “I Fight For a Big Future.”
During the ceremony, Tessa and Michael presented the BBSS of Metro Atlanta a $5,000 donation to go towards their mentoring program, and to have a new mural for their local headquarters created by Studio Number One. Nice!
