Apple TV have released the trailer Emancipation which is Will ‘Slapper’ Smith’s first major film project since… you know what.
Emancipation is written by William N. Collage and tells the true story of “Whipped Peter” (Smith), a man who escapes from slavery, relying on his wits, unwavering faith and deep love for his family to evade cold-blooded hunters and the unforgiving swamps of Louisiana on his quest for freedom.
Pete (as he was known to his pals) joined the Union Army in the 1860s after escaping from slavery. His story became well known when shocking photos taken during his army medical examination – showing his bare back heavily mutilated from whipping – were widely shared as part of the abolitionist movement at the time and went on to help in the fight against slavery.
The movie had originally been slated for release earlier this year, but was pushed back after one of Hollywood’s privileged elites slapped another one of Hollywood’s privileged elites.
This happened during a live show that is packed to the rafters with Hollywood’s privileged elites. The show is used by Hollywood’s privileged elites to pat each other on the back and congratulate themselves for their privileged elite status. They do this all the while telling those who are not Hollywood’s privileged elites, how privileged we are.
Emancipation will be released in select cinemas on 2nd December, before coming to Apple TV a week later, meaning it will be eligible for the 2023 Oscars race that I don’t care about.
