Screen Juice: ’13th’ Rocks Netflix / Beyonce ‘Lifetime’ Biopic On The Way?

Published: Wednesday 12th Oct 2016 by David

Welcome to Screen Juice, the TGJ original feature carved out to keep you in the cut with all things TV and Film related.

Why today’s edition is one you don’t want to miss?

Movie news from Ava DuVernay and Beyonce below…

Ava DuVernays gripping documentary ’13th’ is on its way to becoming one of Netflix’s highest-viewed projects following its release on October 7th 2016.

Why millions are flocking to the platform to watch it?

Its exploration into how the U.S. legal system found a way to enslave Africans after the horrific trade was abolished and, much to the surprise of its viewers, the ways in which said system earns money when it imprisons men of colour.

Watch ’13th’ on Netflix today.


Elsewhere, it seems Lifetime may be preparing to release its very own Beyonce biopic.

After offering fans their interpretation of Aaliyah‘s life and announcing it was do the same for Britney Spears, the company has learned of a report which claims to have scored the scoop on its plans to set its sights on the entertainer.

A Dish Nation source shares:

Lifetime have enjoyed huge hits with their biopics especially on pop culture – and they think Beyonce has the potential to be another one. No-one has yet managed to create a drama about Beyonce’s astonishing rise from a dreamer in Houston to one of the greatest artists of all time, through family sacrifices, group fights and her rollercoaster love life with Jay Z…and Lifetime feel they should be first.”
But their difficulty is getting an actress, who can sing and dance like Bey, to look, sound and act the part. They want the leading star to be as convincing as possible rather than getting hate from her fans.
“It is a delicate position for the network. If they make the film a critical acclaimed drama then they can score huge ratings and achieve global sales too. But if it they don’t, then that will be a PR disaster.

Lifetime is yet to deny this.

        @Retàrd DEATH!!! You’re comparing a single released month’s ago along withs video to a 1 month old song!?!?! At least Hold Up debuted higher than PI lmao! But the real question is how long will PI stays on the charts? It keeps tumbling further and further down every week! Will it ever see Hold Ups sales? Will it see it’s streaming numbers? LMFAO!!!

        Fad will never!!! Her biggest stage is the Super bowl and even than 75% of the population still ain’t here for it! Im hope she debuts a new meat dress. Because we all know that performance will fade into Oblivion like her Flop to Flop era! ?

      • RihNavy October 12, 2016

        I thought it was called “ass to mouth” or whatever

      • HailLegendBeysus October 12, 2016

        ? Not Ass to Mouth ???

  15. Onyourwrostday October 12, 2016

    Kristal from June’s dairy

  16. Yellazone October 12, 2016

    I think Beyonce is too young to have her story told; she hasn’t reached her prime and she has so much more to offer. Furthermore, I would prefer if a larger network like HBO, VH1, or even MTV would house her biopic. Lifetime doesn’t have a stellar reputation for representing anyone well and they do a deplorable job of executing the story of everyone’s life. Everyone deserves better than what Lifetime can and will offer!

  17. Metzo October 12, 2016

    A Beyonce Biopic would be very interesting.
    Given that DC Beyonce is so different from the 34 year old Bey we know now.
    She was houston ghetto, super funny, shady, a lil self-centered, and very hard-working (still is hard working).
    Now she’s laid back, kinda mysterious, media-trained, classy but no f**** given Beyonce.
    So it would be interesting to see how they showcase her growth both in personality and brand, her relationship with Jay-Z ect

  18. HailLegendBeysus October 12, 2016

    So apparently Bey and Jay have donated $15m to help rebuild Haiti! ?????

  19. Career Ender October 12, 2016

    they can show all that and even her sacrificing 1 million people to be famous and you’d still be broke and unemployed

  20. HailLegendBeysus October 12, 2016

    Bey has also been nominated for 8 Soul Train Awards. She’s looking to extend her title as the most awarded artists there as well!
    Queen of VMA’s
    Queen of BET’s
    Queen of Soul Train Award’s
    Soon to be Queen of Grammy’s

  21. Career Ender October 12, 2016

    Rim Job and LOL are the current clowns of TGJ they have dethroned Keri Queen
    They never stan stan for their fav (that’s if they have a non flopping one or any). They only come to bash Yonce
    LAX, Mark, LB, Sybil, Ozzy, Blue Ivy Rod, Molly, Keri Qween, Chile Please, Common Sense, Suicide Blonde, Slayriah, Ratedxxx, whiye girl mob, mob force, teacher, Centurion, Cake like lady gaga, WHUT, Commander of tge navy, those irrelevant Africans nobody cares about etc..
    They all tried but flopped, Bey is still here winning and slaying all their and uour faves. Yall clowns will join them soon into oblivion and no return

  22. SippingmyTea ☕ October 12, 2016

    These biopics need to stop. unless they do it the right way. like the Selena movie , the way Selena family was involved. If the family is not involved then don’t do it.

  23. BEY>RIH October 12, 2016

    The movie woill be long if they’re are covering Bey’s long illustrious career.

  24. FC/JC October 12, 2016

    Just waiting for the s*** to hit the fan……. Bey will probably block it legally though, somehow, someway.

  25. Caleb October 13, 2016

    So not a single comment on “the 13th” documentary???

  26. Paulo October 13, 2016

    I bet you Bey will oppose this but Matthew’s greedy ass will go ahead and greenlight it. as a fan of the whole group and not just Bey I hope some of the LIES get exposed.
