'Cut Throat City' Movie Is Getting an Awards Campaign After Netflix Success

The number one movie on Netflix right now is a new film titled Cut Throat City and an awards push is being planned after the massive success!

You might not have heard much about the film yet as it’s not a Netflix original, so the streaming service is not promoting it. Some incredible word-of-mouth helped the film secure the top slot on the trending chart.

Cut Throat City was directed by rapper RZA and it features an all-star cast with Shameik Moore, Wesley Snipes, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Kat Graham, Demetrius Shipp Jr., Eiza Gonzalez, Ethan Hawke, and Terrence Howard.

Opening on a gritty graphic novel animation, Cut Throat City finds four boyhood friends return to NOLA’s Lower Ninth Ward in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. As FEMA fails to provide aid to their wracked community, they reluctantly turn to a local gangster for help. When that job goes horribly awry, they must outrun–and outsmart—a system rife with corruption and filled with both malevolent and colorful characters.

A press release from the film’s distributor, Well Go USA Entertainment, says that the film will be getting an awards push this year!

Planters' Super Bowl Commercial 2020: Mr. Peanut's Funeral Features Baby Nut!

Planters made headlines when they decided to change up their Super Bowl commercial plans due to the death of Kobe Bryant.

The first commercial that the brand planned on airing featured the death of Mr. Peanut and the second one was his funeral.

The funeral scene did air, but it definitely ends on a positive note because Mr. Peanut is reborn as Baby Nut… kind of like how Groot was reborn as Baby Groot!

Wesley Snipes and Matt Walsh are featured in the ad after being with Mr. Peanut when he died.

This Planters Super Bowl Commercial 2020 Will Not Air, Features Mr. Peanut's Death Scene

Planters was planning on airing two commercials during the 2020 Super Bowl, but now only one will be shown out of respect for the death of Kobe Bryant.

In the first ad, the Mr. Peanut character is riding in a car with actors Wesley Snipes and Matt Walsh, but they crash off a cliff. The three of them are hanging off a tree, but their weight is causing it to snap, so Mr. Peanut falls to his death.

The second commercial is going to be a funeral for Mr. Peanut. This will still air, but instead of airing in the third quarter, it will air during the second quarter, before the tribute to Kobe during the halftime show.

You can watch the “Road Trip” ad right here.
