Next weekend, the 2017 Essence Music Festival will explode into the Big Easy along with a ton of exclusive events. Ashlee Nicole Spills and affiliates of Netflix invite you to be the first to check out two films: Naked and The Incredible Jessica James, for FREE. (RSVP below)
Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall star in Naked, a Netflix Original Movie that is the remake of the 2000 Swedish film Naken. Wayans, who stars as Rob Anderson, is a charming man-child who wakes up on his wedding day, naked in an elevator. He relives the hour before the ceremony over and over again.
Check out the trailer:
The Incredible Jessica James stars Jessica Williams, former senior correspondent on The Daily Show and co-host of 2 Dope Queens podcast. In the Netflix Original Movie, Jessica plays an aspiring playwright in NYC who, recovering from a big break-up, falls for a divorced man. With uncertainty about a new career and relationship, she soon realizes her life is not fully under control.
