THE BOUNCE BACK MOVIE SCREENING IN ATLANTA | Shemar Moore + Bill Bellamy Monday 05 December, 2016
This week, actor Shemar Moore, and comedian/actor Bill Bellamy, wrapped up their multi-city press and screening tour for their new movie, The Bounce Back! Hitting the cities of New York and Atlanta, each experience was filled with fans, fun and a few surprise guests!
Of course I was there as media. No I didn’t get a chance to take a picture with these fine men (yes I cried in the car after the fact lol jk) but I did take some amazing photos. Check out the photos I took on the red carpet of the screening below!
This cute duo has went from The Brothers (2011) movie to The Bounce Back and its exciting to see two actors who are vets in the industry come together and produce a romantic comedy.
Fun Fact: It was less about 2 1/2 years ago when actor Shemar Moore raised over $630,000 on Indiegogo to help fund this feature film “The Bounce Back,” which he stars in and also executive produces. What a way to use your celebrity to bring your own film to life. I am very proud of him that he executed this successfully, and with the love of his fan and generous donations here is The Bounce Back movie! So he isnt just fine ladies, he is intelligent and savvy!
THE BOUNCE BACK TRAILER
Synopsis: Matthew Taylor (Shemar Moore), is a single father, author and relationship expert who is on a whirlwind book tour promoting his new best seller, The Bounce Back. He has got it all figured out until he meets the acerbic Kristin Peralta (Nadine Velazquez), a therapist who’s convinced he’s nothing but a fraud. Matthew’s life is turned upside down when he inadvertently falls for Kristin and has to face the painful truth of his past relationship.
After the red carpet, event host, Satchel Jester, opened up to introduced Shemar and Bill who shared their love and appreciation to the audience as well as their experience working on the film. Once the movie began, Shemar and Dr. Heavenly Kimes snuck out of the theater to do a FB Live interview, which was posted in real time on Shemar’s Facebook fan page where 8M+ followers were able to enjoy a one-on-one conversation with the actor.

At the end of the screening, Shemar reunited with host Satchel for a brief Q&A session that dug a little deeper into his passion behind the film and what’s next in his career.
The final highlight of the evening was a surprise love and relationships panel discussion that explored the themes of the film offering advice and tips on overcoming heartbreak, identifying and accepting bitterness, when not to listen to friends and “bouncing back” overall. The panel involved renowned heart experts: Dr. Heavenly, Jack A. Daniels, Dr. Alduan Tartt and Joyce Littel.
I think this was a great project and Shemar Moore’s vision was executed well. It was well produced, it had cute and funny moments in the film and most importantly it was a cool diverse film. You will see people from every shade in the film, its a film for EVERYONE. I would recommend this as a cute girls night out film with the ladies and you can oogle the men throughout the film. Yeah I definitely don’t recommend bringing your man…nope bad idea lol.
The Bounce Back opens nationwide on Friday, December 9! #TheBounceBack #TheBounceBackMovie
