In the last 25 years Hollywood has produced 5 movies with black presidents. These are:
- The Fifth Element (1997)
- Deep Impact (1998)
- Head of State (2003)
- Idiocracy (2006)
- 2012 (2009)
In my opinion Morgan Freeman was the best black president, but the Fifth Element was the best movie out of this short list.
The Fifth Element
In this awesome futuristic science fiction our black president is played by Tom Lister Jr. President Lindberg in this movie is not only the commander in chief for U.S. of A but the whole planet. He does an OK job for saving the planet from the Great Evil which awakens every 5000 years.
In this movie the Earth is threatened by a huge comet that could wipe out the whole civilization. Our black president is Tom Beck who is played by Morgan Freeman himself. The legend.
Head of State
Chris Rock is the American president here. Apparently it’s a comedy. I haven’t seen it. I think Chris Rock is funny only a small percentage of the time.
I have no idea what this movie is about. Terry Crews is our actor playing the President here.
2012 was a movie shot in 2009. In this movie the black president is Danny Glover. His character, Thomas Wilson, helps coordinate the efforts to save human kind from a giant flood by loading 400,000 people into arks.
As of now there are no movies about Barack Obama’s presidency. He’s the 44th president of the United States, from 2008 to hopefully 2016.
People of the future: This article was written in early 2013. If there are new movies out there with a black president just leave a comment here and I’ll update this page.
