What’s It About: The 2017 science fiction thriller Life follows a group of astronauts played by Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson, and Jake Gyllenhaal, after they discover the first trace of life on Mars. When they bring the found organism onboard the International Space Station, however, things take a turn for the worst as the being begins to evolve and take over the ship.
Now, that would certainly be an interesting way to approach handle the iconic talking dog and his best pal on the big screen, and James Gunn seems open to doing it. Funny enough, based on what we know about Gunn’s willingness to try bold storytelling techniques, it wouldn’t be shocking at all if he actually wrote this screenplay.
Who Is Directing Thor: Love And Thunder?
In the making of Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi breathed new life into what had been considered by many to be the weakest of the solo Marvel Cinematic Universe series – so it came as a surprise to literally nobody when it was revealed that Marvel Studios wanted him back for Thor 4. In addition to directing, he is also taking care of screenwriting duties, though that is a job that he is splitting with co-writer Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who came aboard the project in February 2020. While in pre-production on Thor: Love And Thunder, Taika Waititi is also simultaneously busy directing his seventh feature film, Next Goal Wins, which is a sports comedy based on the 2014 British documentary of the same name.
If you’ve spent any amount of time on Instagram lately, you know there’s a ton of challenges being passed around to keep us entertained, as we remain separately bored in our own homes. The MCU’s very own Spider-Man, Tom Holland got on the challenge train this week with one that involves him trying to put on his shirt while doing a handstand, and he invited along fellow Marvel stars. Check it out:
The latest development in the legal battle involves an alleged affair Johnny Depp claims Amber Heard had with tech mogul Elon Musk while they were still married. Heard and Musk have confirmed to have been in a relationship shortly after The Rum Diary co-stars called it quits in 2016, but Depp has gathered information that points to the two possibly being together before that.
When Ben, along with Reed Richards, Susan Storm, and Johnny Storm, was exposed to cosmic radiation aboard a ship during an interstellar flight, the accident turned his skin into a bright, orange mineral substance, along with an upgrade in strength, durability, and agelessness. For The Thing’s MCU debut, I would recommend reverting back to the method used by Michael Chiklis in the 2005 and 2007 films, meaning Zac Efron would have to get to use to a LOT of makeup and prosthetics. But, hey, whatever it takes to get into character, right?
The buzz for The Eternals has slowly been building, thanks to an exciting cast that features Angelina Jolie, Kit Harrington, Salma Hayek, and Gemma Chan. Last December, Kumail Nanjiani went viral after he revealed the shocking transformation he’s undergone as he beefed up to take on the role of Kingo.
But like everyone else who pays for a monthly subscription, I too often find myself mindlessly scrolling down a seemingly endless list of comedies, dramas, and science fiction epics but still can’t make up my mind on what to watch. Luckily for our collective sanity we’ve put together a list of the best movies to stream on Netflix right now. Let’s get started, shall we?
Cathy Yan’s film is still a sizable win for a female filmmaker of color who had never been at the center of a high-profile comic book project like this before. When Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman broke box office records, she was a more established filmmaker with the Oscar-winning Monster under her belt, and she had a much more well-known hero at the center. Gal Gadot had been introduced in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was a bigger hit as a set-up film than Suicide Squad was for Harley Quinn. And it came just ahead of the highly-anticipated Justice League, which arrived later that year.
Hamill’s Luke Skywalker, who sacrificed himself at the end of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, managed to make a brief (but important) final appearance in The Rise of Skywalker. Now a Force spirit, he encourages Rey not to give up on the Jedi, giving her the extra push to face her grandfather, Emperor Palpatine.
