Hey guys! Horrorella here...

Even though we are gearing up for Halloween, you know that Christmas will be here before you know it. And to help get you in the spirit, the full trailer has been released for BLACK NATIVITY -  Kasi Lemmons' (EVE'S BAYOU, TALK TO ME), adaptation of the stage production originally developed by Langston Hughes.

In a contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes' celebrated play, the holiday musical drama BLACK NATIVITY follows Langston (Jacob Latimore), a street-wise teen from Baltimore raised by a single mother, as he journeys to New York City to spend the Christmas holiday with his estranged relatives Reverend Cornell and Aretha Cobbs (Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett). Unwilling to live by the imposing Reverend Cobbs' rules, a frustrated Langston is determined to return home to his mother, Naima (Jennifer Hudson). Langston embarks on a surprising and inspirational journey and along with new friends, and a little divine intervention, he discovers the true meaning of faith, healing, and family.

The film co-stars Mary J. Blige, Tyrese Gibson, Vondie Curtis-Hall, and Nasir “Nas” Jones. It hits theaters on November 27th.
