Press/Video/Photos: Coach and Spike Lee Just Released a Dusty, Dreamy Short Film Starring Michael B. Jordan

Michael B. Jordan is keeping busy. Fresh off a trip to the Oscars, the actor is now starring in a new short film directed by none other than Spike Lee. The 90-second clip is called Words Matter, and it’s part of Jordan’s work with Coach as the brand’s global face for menswear.

In it, the Black Panther star hits the desert outside L.A. on a motorcycle (clad, of course, in Coach gear) and discovers a series of rocks with words like “evil” and “bigotry” written on them. He tossed them aside. Then he wanders a little further, towards a lonely swing set that’s appeared for some reason—just go with it, okay?—and replaces the rocks with new ones, this time emblazoned with words like “truth” and “love.” Nary a word is spoken aloud the entire time. It’s all about the vibe.

“Collaborating with the iconic Spike Lee on this short film for Coach was an inspirational experience,” Jordan said in a press release. “Spike’s art has moved the cultural dial for decades. I’m proud of the powerful messaging of this film and to be working alongside a brand that cares about putting that narrative into the world as much as I do.”

Lee also chimed in. “I’m honored to get to collaborate with giants in their respective fields, Michael B. Jordan and Coach,” he said. “It was truly a magical day working, shooting in the desert. Enjoy.”

Press/Video: Michael B Jordan surprises high school students in his hometown

Michael B. Jordan surprised high school students in his hometown of Newark, New Jersey, to help mentor and inspire teens pursuing careers in the arts.

The “Black Panther” star returned to the classroom through a program sponsored by Coach, where he serves as the brand’s new face of menswear.

The Hollywood man of the moment said returning to school “inspired” him.

“To see these kids get up here and be fearless and just kind of, you know … just put themselves out there,” he said. “I got inspired again … I got the chills.”

The kids Jordan met with are in a program called the Future Project, which works to empower students by helping them develop the mindset and skills to achieve their dreams.

“Dreams are so important,” Jordan said. “The arts, manifest those emotions. They manifest … those dreams.”

“You cut the arts out,” he added, “you’re cutting kids’ ability … to dream.”

Jordan said when he sees the students’ faces, he sees “the future.”

“Hopefully I’m going to give ’em a job in the next five, 10 years,” he added.
