Which Starlet Could Become The Next Super Heroine In Oya: Rise of the Orisha!

March 8th, 2013 by Kenya

Admit it, at one time or another you’ve dreamed of possessing supernatural powers or imagined being a superwoman, holding the balance of good and evil within your hands. In African folklore, the goddess Oya does just that. Oya is considered to be very omnipotent; representing feminine leadership and is known to be a powerful warrior.  The film, Oya: Rise of the Orisha resurrects mythical deities from African folklore, known as Orishas, into modern-day superheroes in Britain.

Oya-goddess

 

Who Is OYA?  Oya: Rise of the Orisha focuses on a young woman named Adesuwa who has the unique ability to transform into the fearsome warrior goddess, Oya, the Orisha of change.  As the Goddess of storms, her powers are similar to that of Storm from the X-Men. She brings good fortune to her followers and is the only African Orisha brave enough to confront death (as the goddess of funeral processions and cemeteries known as “Oya’s Garden.”)  The film follows Adesuwa as she goes on a head-stomping mission to keep the doorway between the Orisha and humanity closed. Filled with action, mystical adventure and more the question we’re left to wonder, which British starlet could take on the role of being such a powerful warrior woman?

 

Check out our top picks and why below…

 

Oya-film cover-2

1. Naomie Harris

 

1123220 - Skyfall

 

NaomieHarris-read

Naomie Harris has played Tia Dalma in Pirates of the Caribbean and was recently cast as Eve Moneypenny in the Oscar-nominated James Bond film, Skyfall. Being named a Bond Girl is synonymous with kick-ass sensuality, cunning intellect, and superior power- she can definitely handle the superior warrior title and is our top pick.

2. Sophie Okonedo

 

Sophie-Okonedo-1

 

Another excellent choice, Sophie Okonedo of Aeon Flux, Hotel Rwanda and The Secret Life of Bees fame. We’ll next see her alongside Will Smith in M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi film, After Earth (slated for release: June 2013). Her acting chops are fine tuned, her gaze is commanding and she would undoubtedly bring the essence of OYA to life in Rise of the Orisha.  
 
 

 3. Thandie Newton

 

thandie-newton-lo-feet-47500720Well known for her work in The Pursuit of Happyness, Mission: Impossible II, Crash and For Colored Girls, Thandie Newton is not afraid to get physical. She is stunningly beautiful and has proved a wide acting range.

4. Marianne Jean-Baptiste

Marianne-JeanBaptiste

Soon to star in RoboCop (2014), Marianne Jean-Baptiste previously made history as the first Black British actress to receive an Academy Award nomination for the 1996 drama Secrets & Lies. We’ve also seen her in 28 Days and Takers. No stranger to action or sci-fi, Marianne would be another brilliant choice to bring Oya to life.

Oya-film cover-1

 

Through their visually stunning film, Oya: Rise of the Orisha (FBTwitter), filmmakers Nosa Igbinedion is working to bring Oya’s story to the big screen. Using IndieGoGo, Nosa Igbinedion is seeking crowd funding to make a short film of the script to secure a deal with a larger production company.  Would you like to see this film on the big screen?  Who would you pick to bring the Orisha Oya to life?

The Oscars 2013 Preview: Who’s Nominated, Who Should Win And Why You Should Watch?

January 15th, 2013 by Lifestyle Staff

Award season is officially here! The 2013 Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are approaching with the nominations recently revealed for each category. This award ceremony acknowledges excellent achievements in cinematography and its prestigious reputation dates back to 1929. The Oscars will premiere Sunday, February 24, 2013 on ABC hosted by Family Guy’s voice and creator Seth McFarlane. Whether you love it for the the red carpet fashion, the movie recaps, or seeing the masters of ceremony and hearing great speeches, we have a few highlights of this year’s Oscars’ nominees, movies, and what to expect on this year’s red carpet.

 

Best Movie

After creating quite a buzz for the latest release of his movie last year, Quentin Tarantino’s Django is nominated for Best Movie, Cinematography, and sound editing. Let’s see if this outstanding production will take home just one, or all three. It’s unfortunate and a bit surprising, however, that Jamie Foxx nor Kerry Washington are nominated for their roles, as they were pivotal supporting characters and heavy promoters for the leading film.

 

1138856 - Django Unchained

Best Actor

Shedding that tear during the movie Flight meant something. That riveting performance by Denzel Washington set him in place for the sixth Best Actor Award nomination of his career and a chance to win this award for the third time. If you seen any of his phenomenal films, you know that Denzel almost never disappoints.

Best Actress

History was made with the announcement of this young actress, Quvenzhane’ Wallis, as the youngest nominee ever for the Best Actress Award. At the age of only 5, she auditioned for the role of Hushpuppy in the movie Beasts if Southern Wild; now 9 years old planning to make her appearance at the Oscars. Little people doing BIG things!

Best Supporting Actor

Considering the fact that every Best Supporting Actor nominee this year has won an Oscar, to see Robert DiNero take another one home wouldn’t be less deserving, especially for those still impressed by his award winning role in the movie Godfather. Robert DiNero is nominated for his role as Pat Sr., the sports-obsessed father of a man recently released from a psychiatric hospital  in the movie Silver Linings Playbook.

Best Supporting Actress

This nomination isn’t for her role as Cat Woman in the movie Batman the Dark Knight Rises, but we can still be excited that Anne Hathaway was recognized for her second Oscar nomination of her career for the role as Fantine, a young mother who loses her job in a factory and struggles to take care of her daughter in Les Miserables. The movie  is considered an Oscar glory already with more than four nominations.

The Red Carpet

Pictured below are a few of last year’s best dressed gowns. Every year, the audience is wowed by flowing gowns as artists parade in their best dress for this special occasion. Long splits and creative ways to show skin without wearing a cocktail dress is what excites most and gets people talking. This year, like every year, the standards are higher as the leading ladies of Hollywood strive to out do last year’s best dressed.

Angelina Jolie strikes a pose with some peek-a-boo leg action that drove fashion critics wild last year. What will she do next?

2. Lincoln

Steven Spielberg’s narrative feature about president Abraham Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, proves its relevance by making the number two spot in the box office for its second weekend in theatres. Hopefully you and the family are fans of the 16th U.S. President because there are two hours and thirty nine minutes of him in store.

 

 

 

3. Skyfall

4. Wreck it Ralph

Can we ever get enough of Disney movies? Disney Studios has done it again with the light-hearted film, Wreck It Ralph.

Make sure you don’t drink and drive during the holiday! …and certainly don’t drink and fly a plane.
