Judas And The Black Messiah: New Release Date Revealed For Fred Hampton Story Starring Daniel Kaluuya & Lakeith Stanfield

Published: Wednesday 23rd Dec 2020 by Sam

‘Judas and the Black Messiah’ has a new release date.

Full story below…

Five decades after the assassination of iconic civil rights leader/Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton at the hands of the FBI, his life story is being brought to screens by way of Warner Bros and  Shaka King.

Like many titles before it, the film saw its release date in limbo as Hollywood grappled with the effects of the global health crisis. It was originally scheduled for this August before being temporarily removed.

Those eager to see the hotly anticipated flick needn’t fret because it will officially be released on February 12 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max (in line with the studio’s new strategy). Aptly in time for award season.

Its arrival is timely given the flames of outrage over racial injustice.

‘Judas And The Black Messiah’ is anchored by Oscar-nominee Daniel Kaluuya (as Hampton), Lakeith Stanfield (as his ‘Judas’ William O’Neal), Ashton Sanders, Algee Smith, Martin Sheen, and more.

As if the cast wasn’t stellar enough, Ryan Coogler (director of Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’) and Charles King are on board as producers.

    The Messiah was not black but Judas was black.

      They were both black. This is a MELINATED planet. Don’t ever forget that.
