Anna Kendrick’s response to Ellory Smith’s tweet was just Anna Kendrick being Anna Kendrick. Without even trying, the actress managed to be funny even when apologizing over a song. But “Cups” was everywhere after Pitch Perfect became a runaway hit. It was in commercials, television shows, social media, radio, etc. But that’s just how popular that song was with any and everybody replicating Kendrick’s scene on social media. Of course, young campers would be doing the full routine at camp – they were the target audience. Anyway, as the adage goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
During the recent IGN Fan Fest event, Wingard was on hand to field some big questions surrounding Warner Bros’ potential blockbuster. And right out of the gate, he was put on the spot and quizzed on whether Godzilla vs. Kong is merely a stop in the road to greater things, or the end to the Godzilla trilogy. Adam Wingard, optimistic but pragmatic as ever, had this to say:

Star Wars is a property that has been passed down across generations, with the iconography immersed into pop culture. Characters like Chewbacca have shown up throughout the franchise’s timeline, including the recent sequel trilogy. And it turns out that The Rise of Skywalker had a deleted scene where Kylo Ren tortured the beloved Wookie.
2020 was a tumultuous time for Hollywood, especially for big studios such as Marvel. The COVID-19 shutdown pushed back the Phase Four slate by almost a year. One of the projects affected was the much-anticipated Black Widow solo film. Since missing its release date in March 2020, the film has been pushed back numerous times. But the wait for the Scarlett Johansson-led film is ending shortly as its May release draws closer. It turns out the wait is getting to Tom Holland and the Spider-Man: No Way Home cast just like the rest of us.
Some of the stories that Disney World employees have to claim after such confrontations are quite upsetting. One guest, after being told to put wear a mask by a security guard, spit on said park worker after proclaiming, “I’m a guest.” Another story saw a rowdy park goer pushing fellow guests, removing his mask, and throwing his phone Starbucks employee; all in an intoxicated state. Needless to say, that was one of the cases where an arrest was made, and that guest later plead not guilty.
It’s almost hard to believe it, but Zack Snyder’s Justice League is almost here. After years of fan campaigning and crowdfunding, the titular filmmaker was given millions by HBO Max to complete his version of the blockbuster. Fans are just weeks away, and Snyder is helping to buoy anticipation through thrilling teasers that feature new footage. The latest of these includes Black Suit Superman, and a full callback to Man of Steel.
Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie is the generous benefactor to the fans wanting more information about Mission: Impossible 7, sharing this first look through his Instagram account. And in true McQ fashion, the black and white photo is an artistically obscured peek into what the first of two sequels will have in store for Henry Czerny, and his return to service in the IMF. You can see it for yourself, in the absolutely framable snapshot below:
She’s got a point. Horror movies are at their best at the movies, where the audience collectively experiences the same moments of tension, relief, and (of course) fear. Add in the power of a big screen and proper sound equipment, and Halloween Kills will presumably be elevated if its able to hit theaters this fall.
The Keanu Reeves renaissance has been in full effect in recent years, partly thanks to the John Wick films. The 56 year-old actor has managed to keep busier now more than ever. At every turn, there’s either his likeness popping in other media, a new film being greenlit or an out-of-the-box cameo in an unexpected project. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run falls into the latter category. The film’s director explained how the celebrated actor ended up in the SpongeBob sequel.
Of course, if she had Tom Holland with her to speak about this Marvel vs. Star Wars, debate he’d likely humble himself too. Either way, it’s super interesting how Daisy Ridley looks at her own career in comparison to the 24-year-old Spidey actor. She clearly got a firsthand look at what his life is like when they shot Chaos Walking together.
