Movies with black presidents in the last 25 years

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.

Deep Impact
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.

    Color is really a distraction and does not improve readability
    as we can only confirm in our Kindle 3 review. Adhere to the following

    You forgot Idiocracy.

    Idiocracy is included (the one where he comments he has no idea what it’s about). Idiocracy is prophetic and sadly spot on with where society’s going.

    I find it interesting that nearly every movie featuring a Black President is a disaster movie. Maybe Hollywood is trying to say something.

        Add “Big Game” with Samuel L to the list…….probably a fantasy about Barack

      Hollywood IS trying to tell us something.

      However, the sheeple – i.e, sheep + people, as people are as sheep – don’t listen, take notice or care because, 1, they are too distracted with sport, entertainment and surviving – the bread and circuses of ancient Rome, and, 2, the sheeple don’t really want to admit that 90% of what we’re told are lies and the only reason why i say 90% are lies is because 99% is too hard to take!!!

    Maybe not worth a heading but certainly worth a mention: Morgan Freeman is Vice-President in London Has Fallen.

    All disaster movies much like the real thing!!!

    Have a look at the stories in the movies with black presidents and compare them to the real life presidency of Barack Obama. Are there any similarities? Coincidences? Or conditioning?


    We will need to wait for Hillary Clinton or other, to be elected the first female president and compare movies with female presidents to the real life presidency of the female president?

    After 0bama, “Black President” is a punchline!

    It’s crazy that people believe the color of your skin determines your ability to rule a country! There’s no difference between a black snake and a white snake, the snake still bites.

    ‘Battleship’ – 2012. Barack Obama – cameo role, but still playing himself as President. Fleeting appearance where he appears on large screens organising an evacuation of cities.
