  1. A hilarious fan video depicts Clifford the Big Red Dog as a kaiju in the vein of a Toho Godzilla movie. Norman Bridwell’s beloved Scholastic character made his debut in 1963, and now, after nearly 60 years, the giant canine is finally making his way to the big screen in a live-action film, Clifford the Big Red Dog. Earlier this week, Paramount released the family-friendly movie’s first full trailer. Clifford the Big Red Dog follows Emily Elizabeth, a young girl who meets a mysterious man (John Cleese) named Mr. Bridwell—a Vonnegut-esque stand-in for the Clifford books’ original author. Bridwell tells Emily that Clifford will mature based upon how much she loves him; naturally, the love of Emily and her family results in the pint-sized puppy growing ten feet tall and causing hi-jinks all around New York City. As director Walt Becker has stated, Clifford is a CGI character made to look like a photorealistic version of a big red dog. In the books, Clifford’s size varies depending upon the story and is sometimes as big as three stories tall. The creative team’s efforts to avoid making him feel like kaiju haven’t stopped the internet from making jokes. RELATED: MonsterVerse Titans That Could Challenge Godzilla After GvK YouTube video game enthusiast Matt McMuscles recently shared a hilarious crossover video mixing footage from Clifford the Big Red Dog’s trailer and a Toho Godzilla movie. Unlike the King of the Monster’s exploits in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, Godzilla was very much an enemy to humanity in his earlier cinematic outings. Check out a very different Clifford trailer below: Click Here to View the Original Post Reminiscent of reactions to Sonic the Hedgehog and Paddington trailers of yesteryear, some have found Clifford the Big Red Dog’s trailer jarring. At one point, the scarlet pet wrecks inflatable balls with people inside—not exactly the most comforting of sights. While McMuscles’ mashup certainly doesn’t help, Clifford’s havoc pales in comparison to Godzilla’s battle against the ruler of Skull Island in the MonsterVerse’s biggest film to date, Godzilla vs Kong. A Clifford the Big Red Dog film was first announced back in 2012 at Universal before making its way to Paramount. Becker has been working with Scholastic since 2017 in an attempt to stay true to the original intent of creator Bridwell. As was the case with Paddington, looks can often be deceiving. Hopefully, Clifford doesn’t frighten audiences when he makes his way to theaters on September 17. Even if he does, the MonsterVerse always leaves room for more titans.
  2. Elizabeth Banks is off to the Emerald Isle to film Cocaine Bear, a movie based on the true story of a black bear who died of a drug overdose way out in the Appalachian mountains. The actress, comedian, director, writer, and producer semi-recently directed a Charlie's Angels remake and served as an executive producer on TV shows including Shrill and DC Super Hero High. Although Banks got her start in comedy, the multitalented entertainer has expanded her creative scope with extensive roles and credits in action movies like The Hunger Games and Power Rangers. It was announced in March that Banks will direct and produce a film inspired by a 1985 news story about a bear who happened upon a lethal stash of coke in the wilds of Georgia's Chattahoochee National Forest. The bear died shortly after consuming some of the cocaine, but the rest of the drugs mysteriously disappeared before he was found. The suspect dealings leading up to and following the bear's death are rife with material for a crime thriller. The story's central (human) figure is Andrew Carter Thornton, a former police officer who began smuggling cocaine, a situation that would ultimately lead to his death. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who previously worked with Banks on The Lego Movie, will produce. The film will be distributed by Universal Pictures.

START NOW RELATED: Cocaine Bear True Story: The Facts Behind The Pablo Eskobear Movie Banks shared that she and her family have temporarily relocated to Ireland while Cocaine Bear films. The actress tweeted a video she made of her experience in the country thus far, which has included visiting the Irish Sea and driving on the left side of the road, among other things. Banks also cracks open a bag of Tayto chips, which she fails to refer to as "crisps" in the local vernacular. In the video, Banks explains that the movie will shoot abroad, despite the fact that the events took place stateside: Click here to view the original post It makes sense that Banks would choose Ireland as a filming location, as the country's rolling green hills are a suitable dupe for the North Georgia mountains in which the events of the movie take place. Banks doesn't reveal whether the movie will film any scenes in Tennessee or Kentucky, where the story also travels. Although the director has relocated to film in Ireland, little information has been made available about what or who exactly will be filming there. The "cocaine bear" story is publicly known, but details about the script's focus or a synopsis haven't yet been shared. Neither have any cast members have been announced, nor has it been clarified whether Banks herself will act in the film. Regardless, it's exciting that production appears to be well underway for Cocaine Bear. As for what we do know, Jimmy Warden (The Babysitter: Killer Queen, The Roommate) adapted the story into a script, which will be served by Warden's experience melding comedy and horror (or, in this case, thriller). The movie has been pitched as a "character-driven thriller," but it's unclear what tone the film will take. Given Banks' comedic sensibility and the internet's collective amusement toward the subject matter, an element of dark comedy would be appropriate. On the other hand, the story itself has all the makings of a tragic narcotics thriller, and it looks like Warden and Banks plan to focus on the drama of Thornton's downfall.
  3. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who plays Ravonna Renslayer in Loki, responded to the character's possible Kang the Conqueror connection. Over the series' first four episodes, Ravonna has quietly emerged as one of Loki's villains thanks to her role in the Time Variance Authority. Her relationship with Owen Wilson's Mobius M. Mobius crumbled in the fourth episode when he found out that the TVA is staffed with Variants who have been kidnapped from their lives on the Sacred Timeline. In response to his discovery, Renslayer "prunes" Mobius, seemingly sealing his fate. It is also revealed in Loki episode 4 that Ravonna took Sylvie from Asgard when she was younger due to an unseen Nexus event caused by the Loki Variant. Ravonna also hid a major secret - the Time-Keepers aren't real. Instead, they are androids and false figureheads of the TVA. As the incidences keep stacking up, it's becoming clearer that Ravonna is more evil than she was initially portrayed as and her connection to one future MCU villain could explain that. In the comics, Ravonna Renslayer has a long history with Kang the Conqueror and Mbatha-Raw addressed that history in a new interview. Continue Scrolling To Keep ReadingClick the button below to start this article in quick view. START NOW RELATED:MCU Theory: Loki's Time Keepers Secretly Work For Kang Speaking with Polygon, Mbatha-Raw says that she took a look at the comics history of Ravonna Renslayer before taking on the role, but that ultimately much of it didn't pertain to the story being told in Loki. Still, the actress makes it clear that she is aware of the Kang connection and his impending introduction in the MCU. When asked if Loki was laying the groundwork for the supervillain's introduction, Mbatha-Raw simply laughed and suggested that they could get together in the future or the past, nodding to the Disney+ series' timeline shenanigans. I took a look at it, but I also knew it wasn’t the most useful information for the story we were telling in Loki. That was how [series director] Kate Herron and our producer Kevin Wright steered me. They told me not to go too deep into that stuff, because it isn’t really the part of time we’re dealing with. Who knows, maybe we get together in the future or the past or whatever. What is time, anyway, in the TVA? In the comics, Ravonna Renslayer and Kang the Conqueror have a long history, one that involves an ill-fated relationship. Initially, Ravonna sacrifices herself to save Kang, but their love becomes more complicated once he betrays her. How this could play out in the MCU remains a mystery, but one thing is clear - Kang is coming in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and with such an obvious connection, audiences can't help but wonder how he could factor into Disney+'s current series. The actor who will play the villain, Jonathan Majors, has denied rumors he will appear as Kang in Loki, but he is likely sworn to secrecy and wouldn't be able to reveal something like that anyway. With only two episodes left, though, it seems like Majors may be telling the truth. There's a lot of ground left to cover in Loki, including unveiling who, exactly, is running the Time Variance Authority. Still, it seems clear that the presence of Ravonna Renslayer isn't an accident and whether it's indirect or not, the TVA's most fearsome judge is teasing Kang the Conqueror's arrival one way or another.
  4. Ryan Reynolds officially joined TikTok and his first post is a hilarious throwback to an iconic scene from his 2005 film Just Friends. The Christmas romantic comedy featured Reynolds as Chris Brander, a formerly obese high school student who became a successful record producer as an adult. He returns to his hometown during the holidays and tries to woo his best friend and childhood crush. Reynolds starred alongside rom-com veterans Amy Smart, Anna Faris, and Chris Klein. Just Friends was a surprise box office hit, earning more than $50 million upon its release. The feel-good film showcased Reynolds' natural talent for comedy and jumpstarted his career as a bankable rom-com leading man. The movie opened with the actor wearing a fat suit for his character, lip-synching to the song "I Swear" by the 90's boyband All-4-One while looking in the mirror. The scene is still so funny to watch today, 16 years after the movie first premiered. RELATED: Every Ryan Reynolds Movie Ranked From Worst To Best Reynolds chose to recreate his iconic "I Swear" scene for his debut post on TikTok on Wednesday. In the video clip, the 44-year-old star is seen sliding into the frame as he mouthed along to the song's chorus. He also waved his fingers just as he hilariously did in Just Friends when his character was pretending to serenade his longtime crush. “I swear you will be disappointed by this account,” Reynolds jokingly wrote in the caption. Click here to see the original post Within hours, the video received millions of likes and Reynolds instantly became one of the most followed celebrities on TikTok. While Reynolds is known for his funny quips on social media, Reynolds' entry to TikTok isn't just for laughs. His succeeding posts promoted the Wrexham Football Club, which he owns with fellow actor Rob McElhenney. The pair recently announced that TikTok has sponsored their new soccer team, which explains why the actor finally decided to create an account on the social media platform. Reynolds may be new to TikTok, but the actor isn't afraid to make fun of himself (and others) on social media. He's been known to play pranks on fellow celebrities and even his wife, Blake Lively, on Twitter and Instagram. The actor's sense of humor certainly provides comic relief amid all the haters and trolls on the internet. And because he has such a strong following, it was only a matter of time before he also hopped on TikTok. This means fans will surely be seeing more spoofs and funny antics from the Deadpool and Just Friends star in the coming days.
  5. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has offered to help cover the costs after some raccoons damaged a woman’s home. Gunn’s work on the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise made a group of lesser-known, comic book misfits some of the most entertaining characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of all the Guardians, Gunn has spoken many times about how connected he feels to Rocket Raccoon—the furry kleptomaniac with an affinity for prosthetics. When audiences first meet Rocket and his partner Groot, the pair have committed to a life traveling the galaxy, committing crimes, and collecting bounties. It’s the latter that leads to Rocket meeting Star-Lord, being arrested by the Nova Corps and sent to Kyln, and, ultimately, finding the family he never thought he needed in the Guardians. However, when he’s not saving the universe in the Guardians of the Galaxy films, Avengers: Infinity War, or Avengers: Endgame, the cybernetically-enhanced raccoon still finds time to cause mischief stealing expensive and often obscure things.
  6. Sung Kang opens up about the Justice for Han movement and says that said justice has yet to be delivered for the character despite his F9 return. The latest chapter of the Fast & Furious franchise sees Dominic Toretto and his family forced to go up against Charlize Theron's cyberterrorist Cipher once again after her escape during the climax of The Fate of the Furious. Things get personal for Dom, however, as Cipher is working with John Cena's Jakob Toretto, Dom's estranged brother and master thief and assassin. F9 saw the return of Justin Lin to the director's chair for the first time since 2013's Fast & Furious 6 but also marked his first time helping write the script. Lin's return helped open the door for Kang to come back to the fold as fan-favorite character Han, whom he originally helped create in with his 2002 breakout hit drama Better Luck Tomorrow. Vieweers had been calling for justice to be delivered for the character as the arbiter of his demise, Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw, shifted from antagonist to protagonist with Fate and spin-off Hobbs & Shaw and while Lin's decision to come back was inspired by the movement, it sounds like the effort isn't over. Continue Scrolling To Keep ReadingClick the button below to start this article in quick view. START NOW RELATED: Fast & Furious Complete Timeline (Including F9 Flashbacks & Retcons) In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss his return, Kang opened up about the Justice for Han movement that has been underway for the past few years. Humbled by the fans' gesture while also aware of the deeper meaning for the movement, Kang found a new connection to the role and says that the journey isn't over anytime soon to find Han his justice. See what Kang had to say below: "It taught me and instilled in me that Fast is no longer hokey. I used to always think of it as a hokey action flick, but within that, there’s so much power to make a difference and truly impact people. So I was totally honored, and that’s when I started taking it super seriously. As Sung, it’s fairy-tale land right now. But within the story, if you just take away my personal feelings and involvement, yeah, it hasn’t been served. It hasn’t been served because someone that is dear to Han [Gal Gadot’s Gisele] is not here anymore. So how is that resolved? And if I find the man responsible for it [Luke Evans’ Owen Shaw], what do I do to him? So we’ll see." For those unfamiliar or uninterested in the Fast & Furious franchise, it may have come as a surprise to some to learn that the first actress to portray Wonder Woman in a film found her first international stardom with the Vin Diesel-fronted series. But for those who have been with it across all ten films, the death of Gal Gadot's Gisele is still one that pulls at some heartstrings, namely for the connection she and Han shared and it acting as a catalyst to send Han back to Tokyo and — initially — his death. Given what seemed like a pretty definitive end for Han in Tokyo Drift/Furious 7, it certainly seems possible Gisele could return to the story, should Gadot have the time and interest to do so. Even if she doesn't, though, Kang's words regarding the Justice for Han movement ring strong, as the character's return certainly isn't enough. What matters is how Lin and the creative team continue Han's story past F9: The Fast Saga and resolve the various emotional conflicts for the character in the final two mainline installments. Only time will tell if Han will get the justice he rightfully deserves in a way that satisfies fans of both his and Deckard.
