"Black or White" Hits Theaters This Friday!

If you're planning on visiting the movie theater this weekend, you should definitely see "Black or White" starring Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer. Other stars include Anthony Mackie, Jillian Estell, Jennifer Ehle and more.

"Black or White" is about a bitter court battle that ensues between a white maternal grandfather (Kevin Costner) and a black paternal grandmother(Octavia Spencer) over custody of their biracial granddaughter who seeks custody. And with the help of her brother (Anthony Mackie), the little girl is torn between two families who love her deeply. With the best intentions at heart, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings on race, understanding and forgiveness.

South Florida Welcomes its First Zaxby's Restaurant

Known for its famous chicken wings and chicken fingers in the Southeast, Zaxby's is celebrating the grand opening of its new location in West Palm Beach at 5613 Okeechobee Boulevard. 

If you aren't familiar with this restaurant chain, Zaxby's is an alternative to fast food which offers prepared-at-order chicken fingers, wings, sandwiches and salads.  Their most popular menu items are its hand-breaded Chicken Fingerz and Traditional or Boneless Wings, smothered in a choice of nine sauces with names like Wimpy, Tongue Torch, Nuclear and Insane. 

Zaxby's also offers four salads, or Zalads: The House, The Blue, The Caesar and its newest addition, The Cobb. All of Zaxby's Zalads are prepared with chicken, three kids of lettuce, interesting ingredients-such as French-Fried onions- fresh veggies and juicy tomatoes, and are larger than most salads served elsewhere. 

The restaurant chain has more than 640 restaurants in 15 states, including Florida, Alabama and Georgia. The West Palm Beach licensee plans to open six more Zaxby's in the county over the next five years.

Academy Award® nominee Quvenzhan√© Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars as Annie, a young, happy foster kid who's also tough enough to make her way on the streets of New York in 2014. Originally left by her parents as a baby with the promise that they'd be back for her someday, it's been a hard knock life ever since with her mean foster mom Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). But everything's about to change when the hard-nosed tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) - advised by his brilliant VP, Grace (Rose Byrne) and his shrewd and scheming campaign advisor, Guy (Bobby Cannavale) - makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in. Stacks believes he's her guardian angel, but Annie's self-assured nature and bright, sun-will-come-out-tomorrow outlook on life just might mean it's the other way around.

Just in time for the Christmas season, "Annie" hits theaters on December 19, 2014 and you along with your family have a chance to see it in advanced in Miami!
