Anthony Mackie is back in the first full-length Altered Carbon season 2 trailer. 

In season 2,  Takeshi Kovacs, first portrayed by actor Will Yun Lee before transferring to actor Joel-Kinnaman, finds himself in a newer body 30 years after the events of the season 1 finale.

Netfix Series On Assassination Of Malcolm X Prompts New Investigation

The Netflix documentary series Who Killed Malcolm X? has raised enough questions that the case will be reinvestigated. The Manhattan district attorney’s office have said it would review the case after new information came to light. It’s also working with the Innocence Project, a non-profit that works to exonerate the wrongly convicted. 

The district attorney’s comments came days after the release of the Netflix docuseries. The series features historian Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, who is looking for answers to the questions around Malcolm X’s assassination more than five decades later, including whether the real perpetrators were caught.

Shortly after civil rights activist Malcolm X took the stage at the Audubon Ballroom in New York on February 21, 1965, shots were fired and the icon was pronounced dead. Three men were convicted in 1966. Mujahid Abdul Halim (known as Talmadge Hayer and Thomas Hagan), Muhammad Abdul Aziz (known as Norman 3X Butler) and Khalil Islam (known as Thomas 15X Johnson) were sentenced to life in prison.

Ava DuVernay Set To Direct New Netflix Documentary On Nipsey Hussle

Netflix has announced that Ava DuVernay — known for her work on the Emmy-winning When They See Us, A Wrinkle in Time and Selma — has been tapped to direct and produce a feature-length documentary on the late rapper Nipsey Hussle. The documentary will be a co-production between DuVernay’s company Array Now and Nipsey’s Marathon Films. According to multiple reports, Nipsey’s estate reached out to DuVernay to direct the film.

DuVernay seemingly confirmed the news by tweeting a checkered racing flag emoji, which symbolizes “the marathon continues,” a phrase used by Nipsey fans that simply means his memory will live on forever.

Nipsey was fatally shot outside of his Los Angeles clothing store, the Marathon Clothing Company on March 31, 2019. He was 33.
