Sparkle 2012, Friday August 17, 2012
The original poster in 1976 and the current poster of 2012
I am so excited to see this movie on Friday!!! I have been waiting all summer for this and August 17, will be here at the end of the week. I have no doubt that this is going to be an awesome movie, and it is full of talented actors and actresses. The film stars Jordin Sparks, Derek Luke, Whitney Houston, Mike Epps, Cee Lo Green, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Tamela Mann and Omari Hardwick. In 1976 the original version was released and even though it was before I was born, I can remember the first time I saw it as a little girl and I feel in love with it.
Set in the 1960s, three sisters form girl group and soon become Motown sensations, but fame becomes a challenge as the close-knit family begins to fall apart. Filled with love, violence, drugs, and heartbreak this movie is going to keep you on your toes. I am not sure if I am going to be able to handle seeing Whitney Houston sing, especially in a church…I will have to make sure I have a box of tissue with me.
