While that sounds awesome, that authenticity doesn’t come without a cost. Flying a fighter jet is incredibly grueling, and it takes an insane amount of training to even step foot inside of a cockpit. That’s why Tom Cruise personally designed an endurance program to get his co-stars physically ready to fly. To prepare for his role as Goose’s son, Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, Miles Teller (Thank You for Your Service, Escape from Spiderhead) engaged in water survival training in a device called the “dunker” – a machine that essentially does its best to drown its occupant. Don’t worry about the actors too much, though: Tom Cruise was with his co-stars every step of the way. Talk about a great wingman.
So she shaved it! It does make me wonder as well. What does my scalp look like? Do I want to know? Tiffany Haddish has loved her decision so much that she has kept her hair short, currently only having a bit of hair on the top of her head right now. The actress often uses wigs on red carpets too, recently rocking a whitish-blonde short bob at the Venice Film Festival while promoting The Card Counter. Take a look at what it looked like when she first buzzed her hair off:
The Hunger Games (2012)
Last but not least, yes, The Hunger Games is considered science fiction. Dystopian science fiction, sure, but science fiction nonetheless. Directed by Gary Ross and starring Jennifer Lawrence, Donald Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games is about a future society where wealth and income inequality have gone way past overboard. So much so, in fact, that the wealthy get to watch kids from poorer districts hunt each other down and kill each other on live TV. It’s like The Running Man … but with less Arnold.
Without any information about the story to work with, it’s impossible right now to guess what kind of setting Chris Pratt and Sam Richardson will find themselves in the next time together, only that alongside whatever action unfolds, there will be plenty of laughs. Still, both of these men have plenty of comedic experience, so it’ll be interesting to see how their respective styles will blend together. Along with starring as Andy Dwyer in Parks & Recreation, Pratt’s gotten to show off his humorous chops in the MCU, The LEGO Movie and Onward. As noted earlier, Richardson starred as Richard Splett in Veep, and his other big credits include Detroiters, BoJack Horseman, M.O.D.O.K., Good Boys and Promising Young Woman.
His unwillingness to actually watch himself in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent aside, it sounds like Nicolas Cage had an enjoyable enough time making the movie under the direction of Tom Gormican, who previously helmed 2014’s That Awkward Moment. As for what we can expect from this fictional version of Cage, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent follows him at a point in his career where he’s struggling, to the point that he accepts $1 million to perform at the birthday party of one of his fans, who’s named Javi. But as it turns out, the super-rich Javi, played by The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal, also happens to be a powerful drug lord, and Cage is subsequently approached by U.S. federal agents to help them bring down Javi’s operation. The increasingly-crazy situation becomes even more personal for the actor when his wife and daughter are taken captive.
Unlike her previous roles, Alfre Woodard was able to bring out her maternal side on the big screen. She tapped into the dynamics of being a Black woman in the 1970s, giving a realistic portrayal of a woman balancing work, everyday life and motherhood. Despite not being a real family, the acting titan gave off motherly vibes with her young co-stars, especially in the intimate moments.
When you check out the bonus features, you can see what the actresses actually looked like on set when filming the Black Widow sequence, but as they shared, a ton of it was practical. When Scarlett Johansson first read the scene, she didn’t think much of it, but when it came actually shooting it on a motorcycle with Pugh right behind her, it sounds like it was pretty intense.
Look, it depends when you want to get there, and also, what the appetite is. If people want more Venom stories, then, to jump straight to Spider-Man, you could be missing out on so many great supervillain characters in between now and then. So, in a way, by rushing to it, you might be closing the door.
In the end, Tenet began its domestic theatrical rollout on September 3, 2020, but it only made around $363 million worldwide and, according to Variety, lost Warner Bros approximately $50 million. Cut to the present, because Nolan wasn’t contracted or have any first-look deals set up at WB, it was easy enough for him to look for other studios to house his Oppenheimer biopic, which will explore the man’s role in creating the atomic bomb during World War II. Nolan ultimately agreed to sign a deal with Universal, but not just because the studio will fully finance his estimated $100 million picture.
But Step Up was like the perfect amalgamation of both those ideas, and it pretty much became the de facto dance series of that time period. Just think, most dance movies were one and done, or got a straight-to-DVD sequel like Save the Last Dance 2, or Stomp the Yard: Homecoming. But I would say that Step Up pretty much set the reference point for all other dance movies. So much so, that you could even say, oh, this is like Step Up but on a college campus. Or, this is like Step Up, but with cheerleaders. That’s how big Step Up got in the 2000s, and it’s a huge shame that we haven’t gotten a new movie since 2014. I mean, come on, people! Bring dance back to the theaters! I want my Step Up 666: Dance, Lucifer, Dance! It could happen!
