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)
My Girl is a coming of age story starring Anna Chlumsky, Macaulay Culkin, Dan Aykroyd, and Jamie Lee Curtis. 11-year old Vada (Anna Chlumsky) lost her mother at a young age. She spends her summer working with her funeral director father, Harry (Dan Aykroyd), dreaming of being a writer, crushing on her creative writing teacher, and obsessed with death. She also spends most of her time with her best friend, Thomas J (Macaulay Culkin).
The pre-title sequence has been a staple of the Bond franchise since the second entry, 1963’s From Russia with Love. The pre-title sequences are known for huge action scenes and wild stunts that start the movie off with a bang, while often operating in a standalone fashion that delineates them from the rest of the narrative. These pre-title sequences lead into the equally anticipated opening credits and theme song, and it seems that No Time To Die might have the longest ones to date.
However, rather than ram the tree down his opponent’s throat like he did in King Kong vs. Godzilla, the giant gorilla will chuck the tree like a spear at the radioactive reptile’s face. It’s possible this reported scene could be cut from the final version of Godzilla vs. Kong since the movie will surely go through more edits between now and November, but based on the visuals alone, I suspect if it’s real, it’ll be kept in.
The two actors are friends and have been for some time, so although John Krasinski still jokes with Chris Evans about losing Captain America to him, it’s friendly ribbing. It’s a pity that we’ve never seen these two friends together onscreen, and even if John Krasinski does join the MCU, that ship has sadly sailed.
A common thread in the Onward reviews is that there is a certain standard of quality that people have come to expect from a Pixar film due to the years of the company constantly delivering films that meet that incredibly high bar. And fairly or unfairly, that means that Pixar films are judged based on that track record of success. Because of that, some may find Onward to be a bigger miss than others. Slashfilm‘s Josh Spiegel highlighted this, giving Onward 5 out of 10 and writing:
The bigger issue would be where to put them? Because Baby Yoda, in this hypothetical scenario I’m creating, would be a complex animatronic, he would likely need a stationary location. This would be a photo op where guests go inside a building, rather than something just set up on the street. If it were just the Mandalorian, he could walk out in any theme park, take pictures and then walk backstage, but with the animatronic that wouldn’t be as easy to do.
His first big role in that line was expected to be in Masters of the Universe, in which Noah Centineo is supposed to play He-Man. Unfortunately, just a few weeks ago, Sony delayed Masters of the Universe for a second time, this time pulling it from its March 5, 2021 slot and taking it off the schedule entirely. What is good news for Tom Holland’s Uncharted is not great news for Noah Centineo.
The question was asked of Zack Snyder by a fan after the director posted a photo of his Batman, Ben Affleck, wearing the tactical combat suit from the Knightmare scene in BvS. If you don’t recall, in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) has a nightmare where an angry Superman (Henry Cavill), his troops and the Parademons have overwhelmed our planet. It was a hint of what might have been to come if and when Darkseid came to Earth.
