The INCREDIBLE JESSICA JAMES Is Coming To A Netflix Near You on JULY 28th!


This movie was written for Jessica Williams of The Daily Show...by a white dude. However, I have to say that she looks calm, confident, cool and funny in the movie trailer below. I'm really looking forward to seeing her character move on after a break up start dating again and tell the bald faced truth about what she's feeling about herself, others, and life in general.


You just don't get to see black women do this is a comedy that much.  And that guy LaKeith Stanfield with the incredible face from GET OUT is in it too as her crazy ex.
THE INCREDIBLE JESSICA JAMES won a few nods at Sundance and such. Like Viola Davis' LILA AND EVE, I wish it gotten some real time at a movie theater. But if enough films with black stars hit it big on Netflix after Sundance, then may the big screen is next for more and more black female led films

... if Netflix isn't just straight messing up the moving going experience for everybody in its bid to take over the movie universe. I don't like this debuting on Netflix crap to tell you the truth. Going straight to TV used to be what happened to loser-movies not winner-movies like this one. 
But I digress... 

There is more hope (evidence of things to come) than just wishing (no evidence) in that last statement about us seeing more and more movies with black female leads.  


Taraji P Henson was one of three stars in HIDDEN FIGURES last January and she is the lead in PROUD MARY as a hit woman in January of 2018.  And just before that she was in NO GOOD DEED with Idris Elba. If Jessica Williams has a hit with JESSICA JAMES I'm thinking she or Viola Davis will be next to grace the big screen as the black female lead.

As it stands the next black woman ensemble movie is coming out next week. I'm definitely going to go see GIRLS TRIP with Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith.

In the meantime, check out the trailer for THE INCREDIBLE JESSICA JAMES. I'm needing some black girl magic with sweetness and light in it right about now. I'm hoping Jessica Williams can deliver some laughs and maybe some GET OUT type discomfort/surprises for the white folks....because white folks need that every day judging by who they put in the White House.

In fact, entertainment with discomfort ought to be the goal of every POC made movie and television show. Male supremacy and white supremacy both should be impacted by art if we're going to call some of our entertainment "art."
