Of the five actors James Gunn tagged in his post, Joel Kinnaman, who plays Rick Flagg, is the only returning cast member from David Ayers’ 2016 Suicide Squad. Portuguese actress Daniela Melchior will play Ratcatcher, and Steve Agee is lending his voice to King Shark. As for Joaquin Cosio and John Cena? Their roles are still being kept a secret — at least, for now.
8. Burning (2018)
Released in 2018, Lee Chang-dong’s Burning follows what seems to be a love triangle involving aspiring novelist Lee Jong-su (Yoo Ah-in), his childhood friend Shin Hae-mi (Jeon Jong-seo) and Ben (portrayed by The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun), but as the plot unfolds, we realize that this is anything but a simple romantic feature. Before Ham-mi goes off for a trip to Africa, she asks Jong-su to watch her cat, Boil, while she is gone. Upon her return, Hae-mi is joined by the mysterious, and wealthy, Ben. Once Ben reveals to Jong-su what he likes to do in his free time, the tone of the picture changes entirely.
At the Minamata press conference in Berlin, Johnny Depp said (via Variety) he had a “strange fascination” with W. Eugene Smith and his photography, which was enhanced when he “read a bit about his life and what he’d gone through, what he’d experienced, what he’d sacrificed to capture those moments, to capture those photos.” Depp said the Minamata scandal was “a story that needed to be told” and he wanted to “harness the power of media or cinema or art and use it to open people’s eyes.”
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.
