  1. Hello, I am wondering what your favourite tv show is. Mine is parks & rect
  2. Post your favorite romance movie.
  3. Leonardo DiCaprio After watching his acting in Inception and Blood Diamond I became a fan of his movies and keep watching almost all the movies of him. Who is your favourite one?
  4. Daniel Craig revealed why he returned for No Time to Die, his fifth and final outing as the iconic MI6 agent James Bond. Craig first debuted as 007 fifteen years ago in 2006's Casino Royale, a much more serious take on the spy than what had come before it. Craig would go on to star in Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, with the latter becoming one of the most successful James Bond films of all time critically and commercially. Overall, Craig's tenure as Bond has been marked by more serial storytelling in contrast to the previous entries in the franchise and that will be more apparent than ever in No Time to Die. The plot of the upcoming film remains largely under wraps, but Craig and those involved have said it is a more interconnected story, one that will bring Bond full circle emotionally from Casino Royale. No Time to Die will see the return of Léa Seydoux's Madeleine Swann from Spectre, in addition to Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas as new characters. Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Jeffrey Wright, and Christoph Waltz are also returning, while Rami Malek will play Bond's new adversary, one that has mysterious connections to his past. This past is something that was on Craig's mind while filming No Time to Die and it is one of the reasons he returned for the upcoming film. In an interview with Games Radar, Craig said that he felt there was a story that needed to be finished regarding his version of Bond. This ties to back to Vesper Lynd, Eva Green's character from Casino Royale and Bond's love interest in the film, as well as the shadowy organization Spectre, explored in the film of the same name. Once the story began to come together, Craig realized that it was something he needed to finish. We started talking about it and I went, ‘There might be a story we need to finish here – something we started in Casino [Royale]. Something to do with Vesper, and Spectre, and something that was connected, in a way.’ It started to formulate. And I thought, ‘Here we go.’ Previously, Craig had said that Spectre would be his final Bond film, famously saying that he would rather die than do another one. Naturally, the story called for just one more film despite the fact that Spectre could've been a fitting end for the character. Bond once again drives off into the sunset with a woman, this time with Seydoux's Swann, but, as Craig has hinted, his story did feel incomplete. After Skyfall and all the ways that Craig's films have hinted at Bond's past, there was clearly more to mine there. No Time to Die has been promoted heavily as Craig's final outing, lending a finality to the film that other entires in the James Bond franchise haven't had. Many think this could mean that Craig's Bond will die and the mantle will be taken up by someone else. With studios looking to grow out interconnected universes more than ever before, it wouldn't be shocking to see No Time to Die lay the groundwork for future installments, something that has rarely been done in the franchise before.
  5. John Cena made a stunning return to the WWE at the company’s Money in the Bank event. For over a decade, Cena was the WWE’s biggest superstar, and he even crossed over into the mainstream with a rap album and various movie ventures. He holds the joint record of 16 world titles and headlined the biggest money match in WWE history with fellow wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson at WrestleMania 28. However, since 2016, Cena’s WWE appearances have been more sporadic due to his ever-increasing acting commitments. The former WWE Champion stars in the latest Fast & Furious (F9), as well as the upcoming The Suicide Squad, and he recently wrapped his Suicide Squad spin-off show Peacemaker. However, despite his busy schedule, the rumors of a return to wrestling have never stopped. As WWE were gearing up for the return of live crowds and with arguably their second-biggest pay-per-view, SummerSlam, in August, the wrestling rumor mill swirled that Cena would be making his return to set up an epic showdown against Universal Champion Roman Reigns at SummerSlam. Cena himself fuelled the speculation, assuring fans it was a question of when, not if, he would return to WWE, as he stated he had not had his last match and that he could not wait to have his “next one.” WWE fans have not been able to see The Suicide Squad star since his cinematic match against The Fiend at WrestleMania last year. However, now, the wait is over. Last night’s Money in the Bank PPV, WWE’s first PPV with a full capacity crowd since March of 2020, closed with Reigns defeating Edge to retain his Universal Championship. In the storyline, Edge had been positioned as Reigns' last top-tier challenge, and after winning, Reigns grabbed the microphone to say that the whole world could acknowledge him. However, as seen in WWE’s post on Twitter, the Champion was then interrupted by a returning Cena, who made his long-awaited return to a thunderous ovation from the Texas crowd. Instead of acknowledging Reigns, the returning Cena delivered his trademark “You Can’t See Me” hand gesture before playing to the crowd to bring the PPV to a close. The WWE legend even addressed the live crowd after the show went off-air, claiming this is not a one-night return, but it’s his first night back. The return not only effectively set up a blockbuster match for WWE’s SummerSlam show, an event they reportedly plan to stack with big money matches, but it provided the company with a memorable moment that reemphasizes the importance of a live crowd on the company’s first PPV back with an arena full of fans. The now expected SummerSlam main event will be only the second match between Cena and Reigns, but only this time, instead of Reigns trying to establish himself as the top star, he’s now firmly cemented his place at the top, doing some of the best work of his career. Wrestling fans will no doubt be excited for what the two superstars will have in store for them moving forward. It will be interesting to see how long Cena is back in WWE, and despite making his return, he’ll more than likely have some time put aside to promote The Suicide Squad, which hits theatres and HBO Max before SummerSlam. Regardless of how long he’s back for, though, judging by Texas’ reaction, wrestling fans are clearly ecstatic about Cena’s WWE return.
  6. Lashana Lynch explains how her new 00 Nomi differs from James Bond in No Time to Die. The 25th Bond movie is set to be Daniel Craig's last as the iconic spy, though his sendoff has dragged on for far longer than anyone expected. No Time to Die was once scheduled to premiere in April 2020 before becoming the first major movie to delay its release amid the coronavirus pandemic. After several additional delays, No Time to Die remains scheduled for October of this year, where many hope it will finally stay. No Time to Die's delayed release has postponed several major reveals fans have been waiting for, including Craig's replacement in the 007 role. Though the next actor to play James Bond the character won't factor into the film, there have been a lot of rumors surrounding Lynch's Nomi. Revealed in the No Time to Die trailer as a new 00 who rose up the MI6 ranks following Bond's retirement, Nomi very much feels like a successor to 007 legacy. At the same time, whether she has actually taken on this code number remains unclear. In a special No Time to Die feature with Total Film (via GamesRadar), Lynch pulled back the curtain on Nomi and where she fits into Bond's world. The two are very different agents, Lynch explained, and that makes for an intriguing dynamic between the two. The actress said: “Bond has been doing this a long time, and he has a more old- school approach, where he might roll his eyes at Q’s gadgets. Whereas Nomi is like an updated double-O agent. She’s technologically advanced, which is a bit intimidating for Bond, because he’s been away from the game for a long time.” This was previously hinted in the first No Time to Die trailer, which saw Nomi lightly threatening to shoot Bond in the knee "that works." Since fans saw him last in 2015's Spectre, Bond has put aside his gadgets and missions to live a quiet life with Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux). As a result, the next generation of 00s have upped their skillset and gadgetry, and it likely makes for quite the shock when Bond gets back in the game. The differences between Nomi and Bond also seem to reflect Craig's departure from the franchise; he's done his part well, but now it's time for someone new. Even now, well ahead of No Time to Die's release, Nomi feels like a fascinating character who could very well lead her own story. Her clashes with Bond can provide ample conflict for the movie, though hopefully not so much that it will overshadow the larger fight with mysterious villain Safin (Rami Malek). The James Bond franchise's future plans are still unclear at this point, so it isn't even certain that any members of Craig's tenure will continue on past No Time to Die. Still, should Nomi make it through this year's installment unscathed, there could be plenty of room for her in future installments.
  7. No Time to Die star Rami Malek is adding fuel to the rumor fire that his villain Lyutsifer Safin is in fact classic James Bond villain Dr. No. The 25th installment in the ongoing James Bond film franchise will see Daniel Craig return as the MI6 agent better known as 007 for one more film after beginning the role in 2006's series reboot Casino Royale. The cast will also see the returns of Léa Seydoux as Spectre love interest Dr. Madeleine Swann, Ben Whishaw as Quartermaster "Q," Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter, Christoph Waltz as Blofeld, Ralph Fiennes as M, and Rory Kinnear as Tanner. The story for the film picks up five years after the capture of Blofeld with Bond having left active service, only to be drawn in as Felix enlists his help in the search for a missing scientist, putting him in the path of a villain whose schemes could result in the death of millions. Despite initially expressing hesitance to return to the role after Spectre, Craig confirmed he would play Bond for No Time to Die as his final outing. Development took a longer path than his prior outings as multiple directors came and went when Sam Mendes elected not to return, with Danny Boyle attached for a time before departing over creative differences and Cary Joji Fukunaga signing on to help rewrite and direct. With just a couple of months left until the film's arrival, Malek caught up with Total Film to discuss No Time to Die. When the conversation turned to the ongoing rumors of his villain secretly being Dr. No, the Oscar winner played coy but did say, "I would never shoot something like [those rumors] down. It’s intriguing." And, when asked which Bond films he watched in preparation for his role, Malek cheekily said, "Only Dr. No." Though Malek's teasing may not be too different from his previous comments on the film, the fact that he hasn't given up and leaned in one direction or the other is sure to be enticing for those hoping to see him portray Dr. No. With No Time to Die set to be Craig's final outing as Bond, facing a villain who is both intelligent and destructive in his actions would be a good way to send off his iteration of the character. Not to mention, given that Craig's first portrayal of the role worked as a semi-origin story for the super spy, it would be an intriguing full-circle story to see Dr. No debut in a modern setting. With Christoph Waltz's Blofeld also confirmed to return, the story definitely dictates the need for a villain who won't be outshined by the Spectre antagonist. Since Skyfall saw a completely original villain created for the films who proved to be one of the biggest threats to Bond, Malek's Safin could very well stand on his own as a new iteration of Dr. No. Audiences will be able to see what Malek's villain has in store when No Time to Die arrives on October 8 in the U.S.
  8. Craig Mazin, the writer and creator behind HBO’s critically acclaimed limited series Chernobyl revealed that Zack Snyder asked him to assist in Justice League reshoots in 2017. Mazin is also known for his comedic writing, including Scary Movie 3 & 4 and the Hangover sequels. Now, Mazin is making headway in penning and producing adaptations of popular video games. Snyder, whose other notable work includes Sucker Punch and 300, is most known for his work within the DCEU. Snyder directed his vision of 2017’s Justice League after having previously directed Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Unfortunately, Snyder left the film towards the end of production due to a family tragedy. The film was then infamously finished by Joss Whedon, who drastically changed Snyder’s vision, creating an entirely different movie that was not received well by critics or audiences. Due to the lack of success of Whedon’s 2017 film, a fan-led movement emerged in support of releasing the Snyder Cut of Justice League. The whopping 4-hour-long cut was released earlier this year on HBO Max and garnered both financial success and critical acclaim. In the podcast Scriptnotes, hosted by Mazin and fellow prominent screenwriter John August, Mazin revealed that Snyder had approached him and a few other writers to assist with reshoots for Justice League in 2017. In a larger conversation about how the pandemic changed the state of movie theaters, Mazin said the writers were brought in to refine some things over a week of writing right before Snyder left the film. Mazin asserts that he always liked Snyder’s original cut—despite not being a big superhero film fan—which was closer to three hours at the time instead of four and has never seen Whedon’s version. I saw the Zack Snyder cut back when he was working on it. Because they were talking about maybe doing a week or reshoots or something like that. And so he invited two or three – I think there were three or four of us, writers, to watch the movie in the state it was in and then just have a conversation about some things that they might be able to do to tweak some things up over the course of a week of writing. And I, you know me, I’m not like a huge superhero movie guy, but I really liked it. I liked it. I thought it was really good. I thought there were a couple things, like OK here’s some suggestions and things. And then Zack left the project. And so that was it. Literally, I think he left like the next week. And I never saw the Joss Whedon version. Mazin then predicts that the overwhelming acceptance of Snyder’s four-hour-long film will lead to a greater demand for lengthier film extravaganzas made exclusively for streaming. This could certainly change the roles of screenwriters and directors in the film industry, leading to more potentially anthological films like Cloud Atlas, or more auteur films like The Irishman, without the pressure of box office numbers that could never compete with the newest MCU or DCEU film. This change could lead to more fluidity between directors and collaborating with others, akin to bringing in outside writers for reshoots and fine-tuning edits like in Mazin and Snyder’s case. As for Mazin and Snyder, they are both remaining busy. Snyder just released his most recent film, Army of the Dead, a few months ago and is set to direct an adaptation of Ayn Rand’s famous novel The Fountainhead. Mazin is currently the scriptwriter behind the star-studded film adaptation of the Gearbox video game Borderlands. Mazin is also the writer and co-executive producer of the highly anticipated HBO series adaptation of the popular video game The Last of Us.
  9. New character posters for Dune show off the entire cast in character. The adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal science fiction novel has faced a long road to the big screen, but it is finally set to hit theaters this October. Dune has long been thought to be unadaptable, but that did not deter director Denis Villeneuve from trying. The film will follow Timothée Chalamet's Paul Atreides, son of Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac) as their house leaves the planet of Caladan to take stewardship over the dangerous and barren planet Dune. The planet is home to the coveted spice melange, the source of much of the Empire's power. Dune is only adapting the first half of the novel, much to fan's chagrin. In addition to Chalamet and Isaac, the film has a veritable cast of Hollywood heavy weights that will occupy this strange sci-fi world. Rebecca Ferguson will play Lady Jessica Atreides, wife of Leto and mother of Paul, while Zendaya will play Chani, a Fremen from the planet Dune and Paul's love interest. Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Jason Momoa, Chang Chen, and Javier Bardem also star. Now, new character posters have been released showing off the cast in costume (via Dune News). Skarsgård's poster as the Baron Harkonnen highlights his villainous role while Chalamet looks on with a serious face, teasing his eventual role as the leader of the Fremen people. The rest of the cast can be seen in their posters with their unique costumes, hinting at each character's function and fate in the upcoming movie. Dune is already one of the most highly anticipated films of the year and it seems like Warner Bros. is gearing up for the film's promotional cycle after all these months. In addition to the new posters, Dune's second trailer is coming soon and a new IMAX event clip showed off previously unseen footage from the film. Additionally, ahead of the wide release of the film, Dune will premiere at the Venice International Film Festival on September 3, giving audiences and fans an idea of what's in store for the film. With such a vast sci-fi world to explore, it's no surprise that Villeneuve is adapting only the first half of the book in the upcoming film. Dune's first trailer hinted at where the film may cut off, showing the chaos as House Atreides faces off against House Harkonnen on the desert planet and sending Paul and Lady Jessica into the dangerous sandworm infested landscape. With a few short months to go until the film is released, expect more Dune images, videos, and posters to trickle out as Warner Bros. continues to ramp up anticipation for the long-awaited blockbuster.
  10. Lionsgate acquires Kevin Smith's highly-anticipated Clerks III, which is set to begin production next month with the original cast returning. The acclaimed 1994 black-and-white comedy marked Smith's feature debut as a writer, director, editor, star, and producer. The original Clerks centered on convenience store clerk Dante Hicks and video store clerk Randal Graves as they deal with the mundanity of their jobs and customers they hate. The success of Clerks sparked not only the launch of Smith's career but also his interconnected universe known as the View Askewniverse, primarily connected with the characters of Jay and Silent Bob, portrayed by Jay Mewes and Smith. One such installment was 2006's Clerks II, a larger financial success and well-received, though not nearly as acclaimed as its predecessor. Given his love for the films' characters, Smith has expressed an interest in a third Clerks movie for years and teased script development on multiple occasions, and the time seems to be here finally. Four years after announcing the script had been complete for the project, Lionsgate has announced it has acquired the rights to Clerks III with Smith writing and directing. Set to begin shooting next month in New Jersey, the long-awaited threequel will also see the return of original stars Jeff Anderson as Randal, Brian O’Halloran as Dante, Jay Mewes as Jay, Kevin Smith as Silent Bob, and Rosario Dawson as Becky. Smith wrote in a statement: “There’s a saying from the Tao that goes something like ‘To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return.’ Thanks to Lionsgate, we get to return to where it all started with almost the whole cast that started it all! And for the first time since the first time we ever made a movie in 1993, we’re shooting the entire flick on location in New Jersey, as an ode to both the enduring allure of cinema and the resourcefulness and lunacy of its storytellers. Years ago, Dante and Randal made me a filmmaker – so now it’s time I return the favor.” The news of the threequel finally getting underway is enough of an exciting revelation, but the plot itself is actually the most enticing. Following Randal as he enlists his fellow clerks to make a movie immortalizing his life at the iconic Quick Stop after a major heart attack, the film is already feeling like one of his most personal in years. While Jay and Silent Bob Reboot may have been a fun bit of nostalgic fan service for some, it didn't really feel like it had much to say in the way of evolving the story of its titular characters or the larger View Askewniverse. Even more interesting and exciting for Smith fans is the confirmation that Dawson will be returning as Clerks II newcomer Becky. Having only reunited with the writer/director on Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, her first outing in the View Askewniverse was a far more charming turn from the actress and makes her return for Clerks III all the better. With so much of the story rooted in his own life events, here's hoping the third and possibly final outing in the Clerks franchise sees Smith return in stellar fashion.
  11. Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson calls out her Marvel Cinematic Universe co-star Mark Ruffalo for not getting a matching tattoo with the rest of the Avengers cast. Both actors have been figureheads of the MCU since they first co-starred together in 2012's The Avengers. While the film was Johansson's second film playing Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in the MCU since joining in 2010's Iron Man 2, it was Ruffalo's first foray into he franchise after replacing Edward Norton as Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk who left the franchise after starring in the Hulk's solo film back in 2008. The pair have appeared together in all four Avengers movies and were even paired together for a controversial romance in Age of Ultron. While Black Widow is Johansson's final film in the MCU, after Natasha heroically sacrificed herself in Endgame to help Hawkeye recover the Soul Stone from Vormir, Ruffalo looks set to stick around a while longer. He will be reprising his role as Hulk in upcoming She-Hulk series on Disney+ that is set for release in 2022, with Tatiana Maslany as Banner's cousin Jennifer Walters. Johansson's chiding of Ruffalo came about during her appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers while promoting her long-awaited solo movie. Johansson explained that after working together for close to ten years, the main Avengers ensemble -also consisting of Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Jeremy Renner- decided to get matching Avengers themed tattoos to commemorate the last time the six would work together. The only member of the cast that didn't want to take part was "Ruffalo because he’s lame" according to Johansson . She went on to explain that the group considered different options to get him on board, but the actor remained strongly opposed to it. You can read Johansson's full statement below: "We have an Avengers tattoo. The only person who doesn’t have it is Mark Ruffalo because he’s lame, basically. We tried to get him to do it. We said ‘What if we do it with like white ink? What if we did it in water and we could have the experience of all doing it together?’ He just shut it down, it was not a thing. He’s such a party pooper." It's unclear why Ruffalo would choose not get a tattoo alongside the co-stars that he had worked so closely with over the past decade, however he has previously stated that he is afraid of needles so that was likely a significant factor. Johansson's comments are clearly meant in jest however, with good-natured ribbing being a huge part of the behind-the-scenes culture in the MCU - one need only look at the hilarious feud between Anthony Mackie and Tom Holland. It's not the first time an ensemble cast have opted to get matching tattoos with one member refusing to. After The Lord of the Rings trilogy finished filming, the primary cast -including Ian McKellan, Orlando Bloom, and Viggo Mortensen- all had the Elven word for 'nine' tattooed on themselves with John Rhys-Davies refusing to take part. Still, Ruffalo's decision not to take part in the group activity doesn't detract from both his and Johansson's involvement in a highly iconic movie franchise. Likewise, it doesn't detract from the close friendship between the co-stars that developed over the years which will likely endure long after the actors have left the MCU. Black Widow is out now in theaters and on Disney+
  12. The cast shortlist for the role of Barbara Gordon in DC's upcoming Batgirl movie has been revealed. Warner Bros. has been working on getting a Batgirl movie off the ground for years and, at one point, Joss Whedon was set to write and direct the film. Whedon left the project in 2018 after being unable to crack the story, but Warner Bros. has found a new creative team for the film. Christina Hodson, who has written Bumblebee, Birds of Prey, and 2022's The Flash, will now write the screenplay with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the pair behind 2020's Bad Boys for Life, directing. Plot details are unknown at this time, but it is known that Barbara Gordon will be the character under the cowl in Batgirl. Barbara is the daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, a prolific Batman character that has been played by the likes of Gary Oldman, J.K. Simmons, and Jeffrey Wright in 2022's The Batman. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Batgirl will head straight to HBO Max, the first major DC film to do so amidst a larger effort for the DCEU to expand into original streaming series and films. Now, the shortlist for the highly coveted titular has been revealed by Deadline. Warner Bros. executives are expected to start testing a slew of actors for the role sometime this week. Among the stars set to test are Zoey Deutch, Leslie Grace, and Isabella Merced. Haley Lu Richardson's name was also mentioned, but it is unclear if she has dropped out of the testing process before the announcement. The Batgirl movie has the chance to launch any actress who plays the character to a new level. Deutch has starred in several high-profile films and television shows, including Ryan Murphy's Netflix series The Politician and 2019's Zombieland: Double Tap. Merced has several credits to her name and the actress most recently starred in the live-action Dora and the Lost City of Gold. Grace only has one acting credit to her name - John Chu and Lin Manuel Miranda's musical In The Heights, which garnered critical acclaim earlier this year. Richardson, meanwhile, has starred in a collection of indie films. DC is clearly gunning for a burgeoning young actress instead of a big name player for the role of Barbara Gordon. This could help them lock the actress in for multiple films in Batgirl turns out to be as successful as they hope. The DCEU is still very much experimenting what their next phase of films is going to look like and while Batgirl may be a key player in that, only time will tell how well the movie performs on HBO Max.
  13. New set photos from 2022's The Flash show Ezra Miller's Barry Allen meeting with an alternate version of himself. Long left in development hell, the Scarlet Speedster's solo film finally got off the ground earlier this year alongside some exciting news about who would star. Miller will be reprising his role as the DCEU hero, as will Ben Affleck as Batman. In addition, Michael Keaton will be returning as his version of Batman from Tim Burton's 1989 film. Little is known about the plot, save for the film is likely adapting the Flashpoint comics arc, one of The Flash's most famous storylines. In addition to two Batman's, The Flash will also feature Sasha Calle as Supergirl and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West. Filming has been underway on the film for quite some time and set photos have slowly trickled out, hinting again at the plot of the film. The DCEU seems to be gearing up to introduce some sort of Multiverse, giving the franchise somewhat of a reset after the release of Zack Snyder's Justice League. That reset may include multiple Barry Allen's if new set photos are any indication. The Flash Film News posted photos of Miller talking with what looks to be another Barry Allen, likely from another timeline. The pair can be seen being filmed while walking down the street having an intense conversation. Developing...
  14. Desperately need that Archives.
  15. When Empire chatted to Neil Cross about his small screen adaptation of The Mosquito Coast last month, we couldn't help but sneak in a question about the cinematic future of Idris Elba-starring detective series Luther. Naturally, as befits someone ironbound to studio secrecy and children/pet endangering NDAs, Cross couldn't be specific, but mentioned exciting future developments. Two pieces of news have now crossed the radar, albeit unofficially, with Collider talking up Jamie Payne as the director of the film and Giant Freakin' Robot reporting that Netflix has the rights to make and screen the film. Payne, of course, is a Loofah veteran, having handled season – sorry, series 5 – of the show, with that five-episode run appearing in 2019. His CV also includes a long list of shows, including Outlander, The Alienist, Doctor Who, The Hour and Call The Midwife, which we firmly expect will be a stylistic template for the Luther film. Or, you know, very much not. Plot details have not yet been revealed, but expect there to be murders, Luther being grumpy, his coat being rumpled-y and colleagues/bosses who wonder whether he's gone too far this time.
  16. In all the exciting casting announcements surrounding John Wick: Chapter 4, one crucial returning veteran was consistently left unnamed. We now know Ian McShane will officially return as Winston. Yes, the owner of the New York branch of the Continental Hotel, who has been both a friend and (as directed by his higher-ups) foe to Keanu Reeves' central figure will be bringing his suited style to the new movie. Lance Reddick's Charon and Laurence Fishburne's Bowery King are among the other returning faces alongside Reeves, while newcomers to the franchise include Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Marko Zaror, Rina Sawayama, Scott Adkins and Bill Skarsgård. "I couldn’t be happier than to welcome Ian McShane back to John Wick: Chapter 4, enthuses director Chad Stahelski. "He is not only an amazing actor but is an indispensable collaborator who has helped define the world of John Wick." The story has yet to be revealed, but we do know it'll see Wick as ever battling foes from his past and present, with cameras rolling and production set for New York, France, Germany and Japan, among other places.
  17. The cameras might already be rolling, but that isn't stopping the latest Indiana Jones film from adding another cast member. Antonio Banderas is the latest actor to join up in an unknown role. With James Mangold handling directing duties (having co-written the script with Jez and John-Henry Butterworth), the new film sees veteran director Steven Spielberg staying involved as a producer, alongside Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emmanuel. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renée Wilson are all in the cast for the movie, which is keeping its story locked away in a giant warehouse for now, but looks from recent set images to be taking place, at least partially, in the 1960s. Harrison Ford injured his shoulder rehearsing a fight scene last month, but Mangold and the team are continuing to shoot while he recovers and the film is still on track for a 29 July release next year.
  18. Spike Lee accidentally first announced Titane as the winner of the 2021 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival awards show. The festival was founded in 1946 and is considered to be one of the biggest film festivals in the world, alongside Venice Film Festival, Berlin International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, and the Sundance Film Festival. Since 1959, it has been more than just a festival, but also a marketplace for sellers and buyer across the film industry. The festival shows a wide variety of films, including F9 as the mystery blockbuster this year. The Palme d'Or is the top prize of the Cannes Film Festival and is considered to be one of the most reputable awards in the world of film. The award was first created in 1955, but was known as the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film previously. The award was replaced by the Grand Prix before being brought back in 1975. The first film to win the award under the title of the Palme d'Or was 1955's Marty, which would go on to also win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The Cannes Film Festival includes a jury panel of highly distinguished contributors to the arts are led by a jury president. In the 2021 festival, Lee marks the first Black jury president with Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Song Kang-ho, Tahar Rahim, Mati Diop, Jessica Hausner, Kleber Mendonça Filho and Mylène Farmer acting as jury members. Variety reported from the Cannes Film Festival awards ceremony, where the honors are announced. With Lee being the jury president, he was the one to introduce the award-winners. However, he accidentally first announced Titane as the Palme d'Or winner. Canal+ posted a tweet with a video that captures the moment. Jury member Laurent instantly tries to stop him from reading the awards as people are immediately frazzled by the mistake. See below for the full video: Titane is a French-Belgian drama written and directed by Julia Ducournau (Raw), making her the second female director to ever be awarded the Palme d'Or. The film follows a serial killer who hides her gender behind the face of a young boy who has been missing for 10 years. Lee is the filmmaker behind titles such as Do the Right Thing, BlacKkKlansman, and most recently, Da 5 Bloods. Laurent, who tries to stop Lee from reading the Palme d'Or winner, as she starred in Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds as Shosanna, the theater owner. This isn't the first time that a big awards mess-up caused a lot of commotion - just look at the 89th Academy Awards in 2017. With Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presenting the award for Best Picture, an error resulted in La La Land being announced as the winner, despite the fact that Moonlight actually won. Lee's mistake certainly created an odd atmosphere at the awards ceremony of one of the biggest film festivals in the world. Nevertheless, it makes for a funny moment for viewers to watch and the creative team behind Titane was still in tears as Lee officially announced the award later that evening.
  19. Netflix unveils the first trailer for Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild, the anime film adaptation of Capcom's hit action-RPG video game franchise. The fantasy-themed franchise puts players in the shoes of an unnamed Hunter as they journey through a world in which humans, nature and giant monsters co-exist. Players can slay or trap some of the latter as part of quests given by locals. First launching in 2004, the Monster Hunter games currently sit as the publisher's second best-selling series behind Resident Evil, with over 72 million units sold worldwide. Capcom and Pure Imagination Studios first announced development on Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild in 2018 with an original 2019 release plan, though it lingered in development and was slated for August 2021 instead. The story centers on young man, Aiden, who calls himself a Hunter, as he attempts to protect his isolated village. He learns that an Elder Dragon is making its way there and must leave home to set off on a journey with first-rate Hunter Julius to build a team to help tackle the threat. The film will mark the origin story of Aiden, better known as the Ace Cadet in Monster Hunter 4 and the Excitable A-Lister in Monster Hunter: World. With a month remaining until it arrives on the streaming platform, Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild. Set in the fantastical world, the first trailer for the anime film offers a look at the pulse-pounding adventure and the various creatures the humans will face, both friendly and dangerous. Check out the trailer below: Though no specific runtime has been confirmed for the film at this time, the visual effects for Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild is looking thoroughly impressive for a first-time feature effort from Pure Imagination Studios. Prior to the Netflix film, the studio have primarily worked in short projects, including Legoland's The Lego Movie: 4D — A New Adventure and online short film/series Lego Jurassic World: The Indominous Escape. From the gorgeous and colorful vistas to a variety of monsters, the animation studio's first feature-length effort is looking very promising from a visual standpoint. After the loose approach Paul W.S. Anderson took with his film adaptation of the franchise, it also is interesting for the trailer to point towards a game-set story for Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild. Much like fellow Netflix anime video game adaptation, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, the decision to expand upon the rich lore of the source series for a new original story is a far more enticing venture for fans of the game franchise. With any luck, the film will meet the high bar already set when it arrives on Netflix on August 12.
  20. LEGO has revealed images for the latest addition to their Star Wars Ultimate Collector's Series, the Republic Gunship. LEGO sets that fall under the Ultimate Collector's Series category are primarily geared toward adult collectors, and are therefore more detailed and pricier than typical sets for children. Fans played a direct role in selecting the Republic Gunship as the next UCS set, with the gunship receiving the overwhelming majority of votes during a LEGO Ideas poll conducted last year, beating out both the TIE Bomber and the Nebulon-B Frigate. Thanks to fans, the Republic Gunship will be the first prequel-era UCS set since 2010. The gunship, known in-universe as the Low Altitude Assault Transport (LAAT), first debuted in 2002's Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. It is considered one of the most iconic designs from the prequels, with the ship popping up in countless other prequel-era stories. Although Attack of the Clones is considered to be one of the weaker entries in the Skywalker Saga, it has recently been enjoying lots of love with references and cameos from the film making their way into new projects like The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Now, LEGO seems to be giving the film its turn in the spotlight. According to Brick Fanatics, the Ultimate Collector's Series Republic Gunship is expected to release on August 1st for $349.99 USD. At 3,292 pieces, the set will also include minifigures of Mace Windu and a Clone Trooper Commander as well as a signature UCS placard and a display stand. Check out the sheer scale of the set in the image below: What's notable about the Republic Gunship is that it is the first model from the prequel era to receive a UCS set in more than a decade. The last set was Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter, which, coincidentally, also debuted in Attack of the Clones. Otherwise, every UCS set since 2010 has pulled from the original trilogy era of the Star Wars mythos. It's clear from the results of the LEGO Ideas poll that prequel content and merchandise are still in high demand. Despite the prequel trilogy's mixed reception, the films have retained a solid following thanks to fans who evidently resonated with the tragedy of Anakin Skywalker. The powers that be would be wise to keep a finger on the pulse of the fandom so that all corners of the Star Wars fanbase (original, prequel, and sequel fans alike) might have a chance to celebrate their love of the franchise.
  21. Coraline and ParaNorman are returning to movie theaters this fall. The dark animated stop-motion films exist in an exclusive pantheon of the family horror genre. Coraline (2009) was directed and written by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach), stemming from a novella by author Neil Gaiman. Meanwhile, ParaNorman (2012) was directed by Sam Fell and Chris Butler and was the first movie to use full-color 3D printers for animation. Fathom Events in partnership with entertainment companies LAIKA, Shout! Factory, and Park Circus confirmed that the creepy duo will once again hit the big screen. The special return exists to celebrate the 15th anniversary of LAIKA Studios. Both flicks will be presented with bonus behind-the-scenes content to give dedicated fans a look into the creative processes. Coraline creeps back into theaters on August 24, while ParaNorman is slated for a November 16 screening. Despite being one-day events, both films will have two screening times. Fans can secure their seats for Coraline as early as July 16 and for ParaNorman starting August 13 at Fathom Events. A complete list of participating theaters is currently listed on the company's website. Giving Coraline and ParaNorman a limited return theater engagement is a smart move for the studio. Both films earned critical acclaim upon release and have only grown in popularity since premiering. Bringing box office smashes back to theaters is hardly revolutionary but is definitely a lucrative venture. However, it seems like an odd choice not to have these two spine-tingling stories run during the Halloween season.
  22. Black Widow screenwriter Eric Pearson has shared that when it came to Taskmaster’s identity reveal, he wanted to connect it personally with Natasha Romanoff’s dark past. In the film, Natasha, a fugitive for violating the Sokovia Accords, finds herself face to face with Taskmaster, a formidable enemy who can instantly mimic anyone’s fighting style. It is soon revealed that Taskmaster is actually a severely disfigured Antonia Dreykov, General Dreykov’s daughter, who survived the explosion caused by Natasha years ago only to be chemically mind-controlled into being a cyborg assassin by her own father. Dreykov’s daughter was first mentioned nine years ago in The Avengers by the God of Mischief, Loki, while Natasha was interrogating him. In an attempt to cruelly taunt the Avenger about her murky history, Loki attacked her with details that Clint Barton had shared with him under the influence of his scepter: “Can you? Can you wipe out that much red? Dreykov's daughter? São Paulo? The hospital fire?" This was not the only hint towards her past, as there have been multiple references to a secret Budapest mission Natasha was on with Clint. But initially, all these clues were not meant to point towards the single dark secret that continued to haunt Natasha after she escaped the Red Room. In a chat with THR, Eric Pearson shared that in the beginning, all the hints that were dropped about Natasha’s traumatic past weren’t carefully connected. He had different pieces of Black Widow’s life when he sat down to pen the backstory for Natasha. He decided that instead of giving her some generic reason for the guilt she carried on her shoulders, it would be something that caused her to suppress her humanity. Read Pearson's full thoughts below: It was tough to crack. I couldn’t tell you exactly when. It was an ongoing discussion. It felt like a lot of pieces came together. We have the mystery of Dreykov’s daughter. And a really dark secret from Natasha. What’s something that’s a really dark secret? It can’t just be, “Oh I was going after a bad guy and some people accidentally got hurt.” It has to be something like, “I chose.” From the very beginning, we see her take action as a child to protect young Yelena. So that’s her thing. “I want to protect young girls who are potentially in harm.” If Natasha were to make a decision to harm or kill a young girl as a means to an end to get an enemy to defect from the Red Room, that’s a pretty dark secret. That’s something that would really haunt her. “Oh wait, what if that person didn’t die? And also, the father of that person has the ability to rebuild the human brain?” I have all these pieces that kind of work together, why don’t I just fit it in? Taskmaster could have just been a hired mercenary. “I’m doing this for the money.” But that’s kind of boring. My hope was to interweave it personally with Natasha’s story and her dark past. While Pearson worked on the screenplay to make the Taskmaster identity reveal as shocking as possible, Marvel Studios took several steps of its own to ensure that the bombshell revelation was not spoiled before the film’s release. When Taskmaster debuted in the trailer of Black Widow, many expected the character to be played by a male actor seeing as the villain is a man in the comics. As it was known that O-T Fagbenle was in the film, fans even predicted him to be the face behind Taskmaster’s helmet. Olga Kurylenko, who plays Antonia in the film, has revealed that to keep Taskmaster’s identity a secret, everyone on set was made to signs NDAs. To ensure that the paparazzi around the set didn’t catch a glimpse of the character’s face, Kurylenko had to walk from her tent to the set fully dressed, with an umbrella that had fabric hanging from it covering her face. Even the actress’ mother didn’t know that she was in the film. All these extensive measures have paid off after all as Black Widow successfully subverted all expectations and predictions when it revealed Taskmaster’s real face.
  23. Marko Zaror has boarded the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4, but where have audiences seen him before? Zaror has joined what is becoming a very stacked ensemble of martial artists, with Donnie Yen, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Scott Adkins having already boarded. Zaror himself has been working in action films for over twenty years, in roles ranging from stuntman to full-blown hero or villain. A native of Chile, Zaror first appeared in the Mexican film Juan Camaney en Acapulco, and later was seen in the action crime movie Hard as Nails. Zaror later served as the stunt man for none other than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the 2003 action comedy The Rundown, before anchoring several low-budget action movies in Chile. Zaror first gained notable attention in 2006's Kiltro, and followed up with Chinango and the superhero movie Mirageman in 2007. Zaror was subsequently seen in probably his best-known role as the villainous Raul Quinones aka "Dolor" in 2010's Undisputed 3: Redemption, which pits him opposite Scott Adkins as Yuri Boyka. Though the series' tradition of shifting the villain to an anti-hero didn't continue with Dolor, Zaror was next seen as a henchman in 2013's Machete Kills, the first of numerous collaborations between Zaror and Robert Rodriguez. Zaror would also headline the action movie Redeemer, portraying reformed cartel enforcer Nicky Pardo, who now targets the criminal underworld with the same mercilessness as The Punisher. Zaror's next major appearance was in the 2016 Bollywood MMA movie Sultan, in which his character Marcus faces wrestling champ Sultan Ali Khan, played by Salman Khan. In 2017, he would also appear alongside Adkins, Keith David, JuJu Chan Szeto, and MMA champ Cung Le in Savage Dog helmed by stuntman-turned-director Jesse Johnson. Zaror would make the transition to television work in this timeframe too, appearing as Zolo in Robert Rodriguez El Rey Network show From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, and he also took part in the Marvel-Netflix series The Defenders, portraying Shaft, a member of the shadowy ninja group known as The Chaste, in the mini-series' first episode. Additionally, Zaror would also be seen in the minor role of Ajakutty in 2019's Alita: Battle Angel, marking his third collaboration with Robert Rodriguez. Throughout his career in action movies, one thing that's consistently stood out about Marko Zaror is his agility and flashier kicks and flips that wouldn't readily be associated with a build like his. With the John Wick movies being packed with gunplay and martial arts fights, Zaror's talents are sure to be heavily put to use in what has been reported to be a villainous role pitting him against a very formidable opponent in John Wick. Zaror has other projects in the pipeline, such as the action movies Invincible, Affinity, and One Good Thing, along with the series 100 Years, while his Chilean comic book movie Zambo Dende has also not yet been released. Still, John Wick: Chapter 4 is now all but certainly the most hotly anticipated project Marko Zaror has coming up in the near future.
  24. Writer/director Leigh Janiak said that she has plenty of ideas for more Fear Street movies. Before being adapted as a show on Netflix, the story originated as a book series by R.L. Stine. The original publication ran from 1989-1999. It would ultimately be revived in 2014, with the series still ongoing. The streaming giant brought their adaptation to their service over the course of a trilogy. Netflix made the series into a weekly event, where a new entry was released each week. It started with Fear Street Part 1: 1994 on July 2, followed by Fear Street Part Two: 1978, and ended with Fear Street Part Three: 1666 on July 16. While each installment takes place within a different time period, they all tell the story of people being terrorized by a witch's curse that won't stop until it has claimed its victims. However, given the ending of the final film, the door has been left open for another Fear Street sequel. In an interview with Collider, Janiak explained how there are still ideas around making more Fear Street content. She spoke about the Humpty Dumpty killer, who is teased in the first entry, although audiences don't get any more of him. Janiak went a bit more into detail on the idea behind this intimidating killer. She assured that this isn't the end of the concepts that have been generated behind the scenes. See below for her comments: “I love the Humpty Dumpty killer! He was in the original script. I put him in there and I kind of had this really interesting backstory that I started thinking about, about a guy that was killing people and taking their body parts and making new people out of them. Like sewing things together, like Humpty Dumpty putting things back together again. And then I just didn’t quite know what era it made sense for him to live in and what it was, and I was kind of like secretly, there’s a lot to have happen here. Maybe we’ll deal with this in another movie.” “Oh, no, no, no. We have ideas. We have ideas.” The Fear Street trilogy hasn't been shy about the influences that it draws upon from other horror films. In the case of Part Two: 1978, it even filmed at the same camp location as one of the Friday the 13th sequels. Perhaps one of the ideas that Janiak is referring to includes a way to fit the Humpty Dumpty killer into a particular time period that makes sense. It's reminiscent of a more twisted version of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster, although there would be more than one. The format of releasing one film per week has certainly benefited Netflix's Fear Street. It has been the talk of the town and has been getting a lot of traction on social media, as people have been looking forward to the next installment each week. There's no doubt that the streaming giant would certainly like to continue the series, given its positive reception. While Netflix doesn't release their viewership numbers, these films have regularly been reaching the top 10 list. Stay tuned for more information from this horror adaptation. Until then, all three films are currently streaming on Netflix.
