Upcoming Must-See Lola 2 Movie Empowers Women through Boxing and Self-Defense [TRAILER]


Boxing movies have been a mainstay in the film industry for decades, but the majority of these films tend to center around male-driven stories. However, “Lola 2,” the highly anticipated sequel to the 2020 hit “Lola,” is set to break that mold by telling the inspiring story of a woman who faces the challenge of balancing motherhood with a successful boxing career.

Produced by the Hollywood powerhouse Monica “Dollphace” Floyd and directed by Antoine Allen, “Lola 2” boasts a predominantly female cast, including the talented Taja V. Simpson, Elise Neal, Tamala Jones, Torrei Hart, rapper DreamDoll, and female professional boxer Claressa Shields. Additionally, Jackie Long and legendary Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr. lend their talents to the film.

In the original “Lola,” fans were introduced to Lola, portrayed by Simpson, who takes up boxing after being attacked and eventually becomes a competitive fighter. The upcoming sequel continues her story as she becomes a champion amateur boxer, falls in love, and has a baby. Now, Lola struggles to give up her championship and leave the ring with her career unfinished. Centered around a powerful female protagonist, the film celebrates the strength and resilience of women throughout history, delivering a powerful message that reminds us that no matter what our dreams are, they can come true with determination and hard work.

As a leader in the entertainment industry, Monica Floyd was thrilled to work with Antoine Allen to bring Lola’s story to life. “Antoine has a great spirit and a passion for uplifting women,” says Floyd. “It was important to him to cast a female in the leading role, and I was excited about the opportunity to empower a woman. I was happy to provide the resources needed for the film to be successful on an elevated level.”

Floyd is the CEO of True Vision Media Group, where she employs her natural talents to motivate others to dare to be different and to dream big. As a director, producer, and writer, she has worked on theatrical and television films that have garnered critical acclaim. She is constantly pushing the envelope to create new and innovative content and to change the landscape for independent filmmakers everywhere.

As Women’s History Month draws to a close, “Lola 2” is the perfect encore, celebrating the strength and resilience of women. It’s a movie with a message that will stay with you long after the credits roll, reminding us that no matter what obstacles we face, we can achieve our dreams if we put our minds to it.

Before diving into “Lola 2,” we recommend checking out the original film as it remains particularly relevant in light of recent news that TLC’s T-Boz shared about how a sex trafficker targeted her daughter. Lola’s story serves as a powerful reminder for women to be aware of their surroundings and to learn self-defense. “Lola” and “Lola 2” together make a compelling film franchise that showcases the strength and resilience of women, delivering a message that is both timely and timeless.

“Lola 2” will premiere on AllBlk on April 6, 2023, so mark your calendars for this must-see film event.
