In his sophomore directorial effort, THE GREAT DEBATERS, Denzel Washington stars as Melvin B.

Below, Blackfilm shows us a first picture of Washington instructing his students in the proper way one goes about shitting down another debate team's throat. Or something to that effect. The flick's set for release next year. Click through for bigness.

Rap Ho

I think everyone has seen this story before, just substitute debate team with hockey team, baseball team, math [link]


Oprah's "a" producer and not "the" producer? The womans worth more then most small countries and she can't shell out a few bucks to get an uninspiring Denzel Washington vehicle made on her own dime? sad.

Hahaha

I don't know why but when I saw that pic all I could think is that it looks like Denzel is guest staring on like some 70's sitcom or something. Like he is a new teacher and Mr. Kotter has invited him over as a guest to his house or he's trying to tutor J.J. Walker at home. Now that I would watch... but not another movie about kids in a school trying to prove they aren't as stupid as people think.
