We caught wind of these developments through a report made by Deadline. Apparently, Predator 5, or whatever it will be titled, is moving forward with Trachtenberg in the director’s chair, and writer Patrick Aison crafting the script. Aison has written and produced on espionage series like Jack Ryan and Treadstone, so this creative team is already starting to sound interesting in these early stages.
As for 5cream, that title quickly went viral when the fifth Scream movie was announced, and it looks like the cast and crew also enjoyed joking about it while shooting. The joke is actually a reference to Scream 4, which was stylized as SCRE4M during that movie’s marketing. 5cream would be a hilariously weird choice for the movie’s name, but still preferable than the official title for some fans.
Bob’s Burgers fans, rejoice, as Deadline is reporting that writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin have boarded Deadpool 3. The outlet mentioned that Ryan Reynolds has been meeting with writers over the last month to hear their pitches for the threequel. Ultimately, Reynolds and Disney thought the sisters were a great fit for Deadpool 3, so they’ll be handling screenplay duties.
Extraction hit Netflix back in April, and marked stuntman Sam Hargrave’s directorial debut. The blockbuster’s ending certainly teased the possibility of a sequel, with moviegoers eager to watch Chris Hemsworth’s character Tyler Rake take out countless more enemies. Hemsworth recently teased he burgeoning franchise’s future, saying:
Matthew McConaughey isn’t exactly the first person to decry the current state of American politics. He calls the system “broken” and thus, he has little interest in getting involved in it. Having said that, he also makes it clear that, were the system different, he would be more interested. So the idea has appeal to him. Of course, thus far, it doesn’t appear that our political system is going to be any less broken in the short term, so how likely this is of ever happening is difficult to gauge.
This makes a great deal of sense, considering how much Marvel movie consistently make in theaters. After all, every single installment in Phase Three was a box office and critical success. And with the fandom having to wait longer than anticipated for Black Widow to finally kick off the next slate of movies, anticipation for Cate Shortland’s upcoming MCU debut is at a fever pitch.
Black Widow‘s tenure in the MCU is currently available on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.
For decades the Disney company has based its employee training around the “four keys.” Those have been safety, courtesy, show, and efficiency. Earlier this year, a fifth key was added, inclusion. The transition of Splash Mountain is one element of this new focus on inclusion. The ride’s current theme, while not explicitly…problematic, from a race perspective, is related to a movie that has some serious problems in that regard, and the redesign to The Princess and the Frog was clearly chosen not only because it works thematically, but because that film features Disney’s only African-American Princess character.
Kate Winslet is diving into Pandora with both feet for the Avatar sequels… literally. Winslet will be playing the new character Ronal, who is a Na’vi from the Metkayina tribe. As a result, she’s filming her role in the franchise via motion capture, while also doing a ton of work in the water since said tribe are free divers that live on a reef. So once again she’s working with James Cameron on a movie that requires hours spent in the water. It’s kind of their thing.
The cat is out of the bag, or rather the daughter is out of the cage, with Borat Subsequent Moviefilm running around the world on Prime Video. So from this point on, Maria Bakalova’s career will have that film to thank for whatever happens next. Which, if the public’s reaction is any indication, should be a future that could bring her mother to tears of a proud and happier variety. If you haven’t seen it for yourself, head over to Prime Video and see the Borat sequel everyone’s been talking about. While you’re at it, check out the 2020 release schedule, if you want to see what’s still on track to debut throughout the rest of this calendar year.
We’re all juggling a bunch of balls on any given day and trying not to drop any. That was true before quarantine, during quarantine and will remain true after the events of 2020 are well behind us. But there’s that whole concept (and I’ve seen it attributed to both James Patterson and Nora Ephron) about how some balls are made of glass and some are made of rubber. The gist is: It’s OK to drop the ones that are made of rubber, but if you drop the ones made of glass, they’ll shatter. The ones made of glass are more fragile, more important, but it’s not always easy to spot which priorities are which.
