"Proud Mary (Taraji p Henson) 2018 got no buzz or promo. Y'all going?"


  

          

This flick got overshadowed by just the tickets for black panther going on sale, smh

And i thought the empire fans was gonna be hype for seeing cookie as a assassin

No critics screenings= maybe it just aint good. Or studio already gave up on it
########
Proud Mary might not be that proud after all.

The Taraji P. Henson-starrer was one of the year’s most anticipated films when the trailer dropped last year. Henson’s turn as Mary, a hitwoman working for an organized crime family in Boston, seemed like the black response to Atomic Blonde—that is until this year rolled around, where it seems like Sony and Screen Gems have completely dropped the ball on promoting it.

Proud Mary is out this Friday, and social media has been flooded not with excitement for the film but confusion as to why it’s not being pushed harder. Is it a case of a studio underselling a black film, as is customary in Hollywood? Or does Sony want to hide the fact that the film might not be very good?

It’s not screening for critics this week, so don’t expect any advance reviews of Proud Mary. Furthermore, critics attending the film’s press junket weren’t allowed to screen the film first, so interviews with Taraji will have to remain vague as it’s a little hard to discuss a film that you haven’t seen yet with an actress.

Henson herself has even voiced frustration with the promotion of the film.

I just didn't get it - like it's referential in some way or some purposeful style I'm not dialed in to

I will say when I saw the trailer I was surprised it was the first time I was hearing abt it - agree that it seems more like something that should be getting a splashier push

You got a solid genre flick foundation, a dope ass title, and Taraji (who nobody doesn't not love, don't even front).

But that trailer is trash.

You know it's drama, but it sound real good.

the promo billboard look like an 'Expendables' afro.

I feel like she's being sabotaged, for some reason.
