Whoa! Before The Force Awakens hit theaters and John Boyega likely said goodbye to casually hanging out at sushi joints, Lana Condor met up with him as part of the casting process for The Last Jedi. Finn and Rose spent a good part of Episode VIII together, so one of the last passages into nabbing the part was making sure the two could click with audiences on screen.
Later, a disheveled Hal returns to town and attacks Jack. He informs us that the ice did crack and the sled did sink. His sister and her husband died, and the dogs “ran off.” This one’s for all the dog lovers in the audience apparently, because in the book, the dogs die with everybody else. In fact, in the book, only three other dogs survive this far with Buck, the rest having died during the trips with Francois and Perrault. In fact, in the book, Hal himself also dies, so this scene never happens.
However, he’s known about Chris Rock’s interest in all things Saw ever since the two of them met at a Variety party in 2014, a year before Whannell’s directorial debut, Insidious 3, came out. Per Leigh Whannell’s telling of the story, Rock didn’t seem too interested in him when they were introduced, but when Rock’s agent told him that Whannell wrote Saw as they were walking away, the SNL alum turned around and told Whannell how he was a big fan of the franchise.
Apparently The Call Of The Wild has trouble drawing the line between being realistic and being just the fun family movie that it wants to be. Yolanda Machado called out the film’s villain, played by Dan Stevens of FX’s Legion, Beauty and the Beast and Downton Abbey. Here’s what she said in her review on The Wrap:
J.D. Dillard, the director behind indie sci-fi films Sleight and Sweetheart, has been tapped to direct a Star Wars project, with Luke Cage writer Matt Owens penning the script, The Hollywood Reporter has just learned. However, as of right now, it remains to be seen if this Star Wars project will be a theatrical offering or be put on the Disney+ streaming service.
Understanding that Grace has become a serious danger to both herself and them, Aiden and Mia need to find escape or refuge, but are handicapped by their cell phone being dead. Their solution is to go into the attic and barricade themselves in until their father finally makes his way back to them. Staying safe for this long proves to be an untenable situation, however. Needing to use the bathroom, Mia makes her way back downstairs slowly and carefully… but the efforts aren’t enough. Grace not only manages to find her, but Richard’s gun as well.
If such a comic book series set later in the timeline were to be given the green light, I’m guessing that Marvel would handle its publication. Regardless, at least now Star Wars fans have a way to follow along with the next stage of Rey, Finn and Poe’s lives. When we last saw them in The Rise of Skywalker, they were celebrating their victory over The First Order, and Rey closed out the movie by burying Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa’s lights on Tatooine and taking on ‘Skywalker’ as her last name.
French writer/director Claire Denis co-wrote and directed the acclaimed but under-seen sci-fi movie High Life, which starred Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche. The Stars at Noon definitely sounds like a departure from The Batman but it does seem to be Pattinson’s pattern to balance big movies like Twilight, Tenet, and The Batman with smaller independent films. In 2019, Pattinson’s eclectic filmography included The Lighthouse, The King, and Waiting for Barbarians — a film he made with Johnny Depp that still somehow didn’t get a wide release.
On November 17, 2019, the members of the Release the Snyder Cut movement received a tremendous boost when both Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck tweeted out the hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that they encouraged the push that is trying to get Warner Bros. to release Zack Snyder’s version of the troubled superhero movie, Justice League. Today, during a press event for Affleck’s new movie The Way Back, we took a moment to thank him for showing that support, and he finally explained why he did it. Said Affleck:
4. My Girl (1991)
