Ziggy Marley, Queen Latifah, Madea, LFW, Oprah it's all happening on the BFS ...


Here are a few of the events posted on the network that are happening this weekend: 

Now out on general release across the UK: Just Wright ...

Queen Latifah stars as Leslie Wright, a straight-shooting physical therapist, gets the gig of a lifetime working with NBA All-Star Scott McKnight (Common). All is going well until Leslie finds herself falling for Scott, forcing her to choose between the gig of a lifetime and the tug-of-war inside her heart. Oblivious to her romantic overtures, McKnight is instead drawn to the affections of Leslie's gorgeous childhood friend Morgan (Paula Patton), who has her sights set on being an NBA trophy wife. Is Leslie destined to play the role of "best friend" forever or will Scott finally see that what he always wanted is right in front of him?
