The Buzz on Akeelah and The Bee

We've been excited about Akeelah and the Bee for a good while now and were more than a little concerned when the film's release date inched further and further away from what was originally expected. But now, the film seems destined to reach even greater heights with the recent announcement that Starbucks will begin a massive in-store promotion for the film--marking the first foray into the movies for the Coffee giant.

We're ecstatic to see the first on-screen pairing of Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne since the What's Love Got To Do With It? and Boyz 'N The Hood days. These two master thespians alone are enough to get us into the theaters.

But keep a keen eye on Keke Palmer, who stars as Akeelah. At the tender age of 12, she's already received several major acoolades; she's been nominated for an Image Award, Screen Actors Guild award and a Young Artists Award. You'll be seeing much more of Keke Palmer; she's shot a pilot television show for Disney (Keke & Jamal) and will co-star in the upcoming Madea's Family Renunion.

The industry is buzzing about Akeelah and the Bee and for good reason!

Akeelah and the Bee opens nationwide April 28th.
