Coming To America’s Eddie Murphy On Being Forced To Add A White Character To The Original Movie

So if Coming to America had progressed without this studio note, Louie Anderson wouldn’t have been included in the feature, and presumably his character, an employee at the McDowell’s fast food restaurant named Maurice who Akeem briefly works alongside, would have been played by a Black actor. But things didn’t unfold that way, and having been impressed by Anderson’s comedy work in the ‘80s, Eddie Murphy thought that he’d be “perfect” for the role.

As powerful as Darkseid is, he can’t rule Apokolips and try to conquer the universe all on his own. So like any good boss, he delegates work, and among the minions who serve him is his uncle Steppenwolf. Unlike in the theatrical cut of Justice League, where Darkseid was only mentioned once, Zack Snyder’s Justice League features Darkseid and makes it clear that Steppenwolf is carrying out his will on Earth. But how does their relationship in the DC Extended Universe compare to their dynamic within the traditional DC Comics mythos?

There are hit Broadway musicals, and then there’s Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s tale about America’s founding became a sensation when it debuted on the great white way, going on to win Tonys, a Grammy, and even a Pulitzer along the way. Disney+ subscribers were able to be in the room where it happened when a filmed performance arrived last summer, and became a must-see event. Now we can see what Hamilton would look like if performed by the adorable denizens of Animal Crossing, and I just can’t look away.

Bob Odenkirk’s Nobody Has Screened, See What People Are Saying

Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) is returning to the big screen in director Ilya Naishuller’s Nobody – but you should prepare to see him in a totally new light. The film stars Odenkirk as Hutch Mansell, an underestimated dad and husband who takes life’s indignities on the chin and never pushes back. He’s a nobody (get it?). When thieves break into his home and Hutch does nothing to defend himself or his family, his son Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack) and his wife Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman) pull further away from him. But the aftermath of that incident lights a fire under Hutch, and he takes action to save his family from a dangerous adversary and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.

Nobody was written by Derek Kolstad, who also happens to be the screenwriter for the John Wick films. Will Bob Odenkirk become the new John Wick? We’ll just have to see about that. The new movie doesn’t release in theaters until March 26, but critics have already begun posting their thoughts on Twitter. Let’s see what they have to say.
