Let’s be honest: Gugu Mbatha-Raw should be a star. After her revelatory performances in “Belle” and “Beyond The Lights,” she should be on the short list of must-land leading ladies from prestige Oscar bait to summer blockbusters. It hasn’t happened yet, but the Brit is in the middle of a noteworthy phase of her career that might finally put her front and center.
Last year, Mbatha-Raw co-starred in the incredible “San Junipero” episode of “Black Mirror” and stole a scene or two from Jessica Chastain in “Miss Sloane.” This past weekend, she starred in the box-office smash “Beauty And The Beast” as Plumette (a mostly vocal performance), and in October will appear in the sci-fi thriller “God Particle,” which was recently revealed to be the third installment of the “Cloverfield” franchise (whatever that really means).
