Confession time: sometimes, when my dad and I went to the movies, we’d sneak into other movies after our main attraction. In later years, this would include us going to see Face/Off after watching Men In Black, as well as experiencing The Last Samurai after the disappointment that was Timeline. So when Toy Story came out, I was expecting to just watch that movie and be on our way home; an expectation dashed by the fact that my best friend George and his father were at the same movie theater, for the same movie. Running into each other in the lobby, our fathers wanted to go see Goldeneye, and we accompanied them.
Old is done filming and on schedule for its July 2021 release date! The director, writer and producer of the movie shared that making the movie was an “incredible experience” set in a beautiful country with welcoming people. M. Night Shyamalan is going back to his home in Philadelphia now, but he offered fans some hope about the movie’s shoot. Plus, there’s an interesting image of two hands, the left holding some circular object as the clapper drifts in a pool. Perhaps it’s a hint, but chances are we won’t know the significance for quite some time.
To provide some context, George Clooney recalled to GQ how in 2013, he scored a huge payday from doing Gravity. Granted, it wasn’t anywhere the kind of money Clooney would later make from selling Casamigos, the tequila company he started with Rande Gerber and another friend, but it was enough that the actor, who was single at the time and had no prospects of ever starting a family, wanted to pay it forward to the people who’d helped him when he was a down-on-his-luck actor.
The big screen experience is something that film directors, when possible, love to preserve. However, there is an unavoidable eventuality that a movie like Tenet will be available on so many personal platforms, the artist can’t control how the audience ingests it. Thankfully, despite the consistent perception that director Christopher Nolan isn’t a fan of viewers watching his movies on their phones, the man himself has come out and said that he’s actually ok with that.
Spike Lee’s upcoming project sounds like it has roots with his late mother Jacquelyn Shelton Lee, who he thanked specifically “first and foremost” with the statement. Lee’s mom was a huge fan of the musical genre and it greatly influenced his interest to contribute to the genre himself in the near future with this movie. Based off these words, it sounds like the project will be a no holds barred certified musical, complete with song and dance numbers.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League will follow the same basic premise as the theatrical version, i.e. Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg and an eventually-resurrected Superman battling Steppenwolf and his Parademon army when they come to Earth in search of the three Mother Boxes. Again though, the specific beats of that narrative will play out quite differently, from Cyborg being reincorporated as the “heart” of this Justice League story, to Robin’s death being elaborated upon, to characters like Darkseid and Ryan Choi showing up. Even Jared Leto’s Joker, who was never planned to appear in the original Justice League, has been thrown into the mix.
How Fantasy Separates Come Away’s Reality From Fiction
Throughout Come Play, we see the imaginations of David, Alice, and Peter triggered at certain points in their lives, mostly while at play. Sticks become weapons, an overturned boat becomes a pirate ship, and pocket watches start running backwards. Just as Alice decides to spurn her aunt Eleanor, in favor of that trip to Wonderland, things get brighter and more colorful, with Alice dressed like the storybook character she’s meant to represent. This signals the dramatic shift from the drab, subdued atmosphere that was present just a couple of scenes prior.
In his action movies, Dwayne Johnson’s characters can do many things, like defying gravity, bullets and sometimes even death itself. Unfortunately for Red Notice, Dwayne Johnson couldn’t fit inside a Porsche because of his overwhelmingly large muscles and giant frame. But rather than sweep that moment under the rug, he laughed along and shared the story on social media. Check it out:
What is the nod? In case you haven’t heard this one before, there is a sleeping pod on the Kryptonian scout ship that is unearthed in Man of Steel. When Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) first enters the ship, he walks past an open pod, and sweeps the dust off of a second pod, revealing a shriveled-up Kryptonian body. These scout ships came from Krypton eons ago, when the powerful race was exploring the galaxies at the height of their power. But… who was in the open pod?
The Fantastic Four have been adapted for the big screen a few times before, to varying success. An unreleased movie was produced back in 1994, but never actually made it to theaters. The most famous film version came in 2005, starring a pre-Captain America Chris Evans as the Human Torch. That project became a bonafide franchise after a sequel hit theaters in 2007, with a disappointing box office performance which cancelled plans for a threequel and Silver Surfer spinoff.
