Janelle Monae walks the carpet while attending the drive-in premiere of her new movie Antebellum on Monday night (September 14) at The Grove in Los Angeles.

The cast of the movie stepped out for a socially distanced rooftop cinematic experience ahead of the film’s PVOD premiere this weekend.

Joining Janelle at the event were co-stars Gabourey Sidibe, Jena Malone, Jack Huston, Kiersey Clemons, Achok Majak, Lily Cowles, and London Boyce, as well as filmmakers Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz.

Antebellum will premiere as a Premium On-Demand release on all platforms on September 18. The movie was originally going to debut in theaters earlier this year, but Lionsgate decided that it was important to release the film as soon as possible because of the film’s timely themes.

In Antebellum, successful author Veronica Henley (Monae) finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality that forces her to confront the past, present and future – before it’s too late.

FYI: Janelle is wearing an Elie Saab gown and a Carolina Santo Domingo clutch.

Gabourey Sidibe & Boyfriend Brandon Frankel Gush Over Each Other in Cute Instagram Post!

Gabourey Sidibe and her boyfriend Brandon Frankel have written the sweetest messages for each other on Instagram as a way to kick off 2020!

The 36-year-old Oscar-nominated actress is featured in many selfies that Brandon posted to his page. He also wrote a lengthy caption about his love for her.

“Here’s to 2020- this past year was one of the toughest, but also one of the most rewarding and fulfilling of my life all at the same time! I’m truly thankful for my close family, friends, associates past and present…and most of all, for THIS Queen right here,” Brandon wrote. “You’re a ball of sunshine, so generous and giving of your time, resources, and love- and your excitement and passion for life and people/things you love truly lights up my heart.”

“You’ve taught me so much about life, myself, and the world that is truly invaluable. You make me push myself to be a better me, even though you probably don’t even realize you are. I love you more and more every single day- which seems impossible, but continually amazes me. Here’s to 2020- and thank you for loving me so unconditionally. I love being your forever-Dork. ❤️❤️❤️,” he added.

Gabby wrote a comment on the post saying, “You’re my favorite Love Song. You’re the cherry on top of this last decade and the foundation of the next. I’m excited for all the matching hoodies, Mickey/Minnie outfits to DisneyLand, and your favorite shirts that somehow become MY favorite shirts. You make me happier than I’ve ever been. I’m so glad we found each other and I’m gonna point and yell ‘DOG!’ for you, when I see one in public forever.

While Gabby has only posted subtle hints to their relationship on Instagram, Brandon has been sharing photos with her since May 2019.

Brandon used to work at Paradigm Talent Agency and he started his own brand partnerships and talent representation agency called Contra Inc. in 2017.
