The 2015 WITIN RADIO Summer Blockbuster Movie Guide

This weekend, the release of the big-budget action feature Furious 7 kicks off blockbuster season with an early start. Typically films released from now until the late fall aren't usually the types of films you hear about during Oscar season, but even if they’re not exactly socially aware / tear jerkers, you can still have a great time at the movies.

Here’s a look at some summer blockbusters that we are actually looking forward to seeing this summer. Get your popcorn, soda and candy ready !

#1) Fantastic Four (August 7)
The film's casting is "out of the box" and the film is also said to be taking a new twist on the origins of the Superhero family. In a generation of superhero reboots, its not easy to create one that stands out. But thanks to a decidedly young cast of rising stars—Michael B. Jordan (Parenthood, Friday Night Lights), Kate Mara (House of Cards), Miles Teller (Whiplash)—Fantastic Four could finally be the next generation's great Marvel franchise.

#2) Ant-Man (July 17)
Paul Rudd is one of our favorite actors and has been tapped as the lead roll in this film. Ant-Man was never a fan favorite superhero growing up but Let’s face it, a man that can shrink and control ants is an incredibly lame superhero. But, with a sense of self-awareness and the always affable Paul Rudd in the lead roll, it’s hard not to at least be curious as to how Ant-Man will play out.

#3) Straight Outta Compton (August 13)
No matter if you're a Rap/ Hip-Hop fan or not, there is no denying that the legendary group NWA pioneered the genre. This film is said to follow a similar model as the Biggie Smalls biopic , Notorious but is slated to feature Rap Moguls Ice Cube & Dr. Dre.  

#4) San Andreas (May 29)
Well, it wouldn't be summer without a disaster flick ! San Andreas has everything you could possibly want in a guilty pleasure summer disaster movie: Huge special effects; wide-spread destruction; The Rock.

#5)  The Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1)
Marvel’s Avengers franchise knows exactly what it is and what its fans want: Star-studded, action-scene eye candy, laced with witty one-liners and superhero banter ! Age of Ultron probably won’t be the next Dark Knight ( *Cough...We like DC Comics better), but it should still be a lot of fun.

#6) Tomorrowland (May 22)
We have never been Disney fans but for a film based on a dated Disney park, Tomorrowland looks promising. And, considering Lost mastermind Damon Lindelof( Prometheus, The Leftovers ) is the script’s co-writer, the George Clooney sci-fi epic could have some darker twists than your average Disney adventure.

Exclusive Interview: 804 Street Media CEO Lance Cooper

Last week, the staff of WITIN RADIO had the opportunity to meet with 804 Street Media CEO & Editor In Chief , Lance Cooper.During the interview we had the opportunity to speak with Lance on his life's work, his company's Social Media presence, and the state of Black America.

When did you launch 804 Street Media & what was the catalyst for you launching 804 Street Media ?

"The official brand evolved into a business around 2013, but the grind to put the 804 (Richmond. Virginia) on the map started back in the 1990’s. Everything started with hip-hop. In 1997 I had a rap group here in Richmond. Virginia was on the rise, we were actually the only rap group from Richmond to share a stage with Nas. This was around the time "It Was Written" dropped. Eventually, however the group parted ways. I put the microphone down and started promoting other artists. Coming from one of  the hardest places to "get on" from is Virginia, because support on every level…
