[Watch] Oscar Buzz Continues With “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete” Starring Jennifer Hudson and Anthony Mackie

By Posted on 0 1 m read

George Tillman Jr. has tapped the powers of Jennifer Hudson, Anthony Mackie, Jordin Sparks and introducing Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon, for a new film entitled The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete.


During a sweltering summer in New York City, 13-year-old Mister’s (Brooks) hard-living mother (Hudson) is apprehended by the police, leaving the boy and nine-year-old Pete (Dizon) alone to forage for food while dodging child protective services and the destructive scenarios of the Brooklyn projects. Faced with more than any child can be expected to bear, the resourceful Mister nevertheless feels he is an unstoppable force against seemingly unmovable obstacles. But what really keeps the pair in the survival game is much more Mister’s vulnerability than his larger-than-life attitude.  -Codeblack Films & Lionsgate

The film, in select theaters October 11, is also co-produced by Alicia Keys who offers new, original music for the score. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
