To be clear, Forest Whitaker knows how to sing. And, he’s been in musicals in the past, but he put that behind him and primarily focused on acting and working on that craft. So when asked by Collider what the difference was going from being a professionally trained singer to musicals, Forest Whitaker had some thoughts:
While Amazon has not issued an official response to this letter, following the KAA’s earlier attempt to have Borat Subsequent Moviefilm removed from Prime Video, Sacha Baron Cohen said in a statement last month that the reason he chose Kazakhstan for his character to come from was because “almost nobody in the U.S. knew anything about.” This allowed him to create “a wild, comedic, fake world,” and Cohen described the real-life Kazakhstan as “a beautiful country with a modern, proud society — the opposite of Borat’s version.” It’s worth mentioning that Kazakhstan’s government, which banned Borat back in the day, has been more receptive to the sequel, going to far as to use the character’s “Very Nice” catchphrase as part of a tourism campaign.

Diet and exercise are never easy, but Rebel Wilson seemed determined this year to make those hard changes to better herself. After her hard work, she saw the fruits of her labor. Now, looking back, she recalled what her old habits looked like, and they’re wildly different from what she does today. Here’s what Rebel Wilson had to say to People:
In August, Angelina Jolie had called for the judge’s removal on her ongoing court case with Brad Pitt. At the time, Jolie’s team had argued that Judge John W. Ouderkirk had “failed to disclose the cases that demonstrated the current, ongoing, repeat-customer relationship between the judge and Respondent’s counsel.” According to the latest information, however, the Superior Court of California in Orange County ruled that Jolie claim was not viable and was officially “denied.”
The news that the production may have skirted some rules during the pandemic, which is not a good look, is taking away from what most people involved would like to see people talking about right now, that principal photography on The Matrix 4 is now complete. Fans will certainly be excited to know that the surprise new chapter is that much closer to becoming real. While reshoots will likely be needed down the road, the movie now shifts to post-production which, considering this a Matrix movie, will probably be extensive. The Matrix 4 is set for release in December 2021.
While Tom and Jerry sees these two foes split up and somewhat peaceful, it isn’t long before Jerry’s new residence at a swank New York hotel causes an uproar that’ll bring him back together with Tom. As “four Presidents, three popes, and two kings” have previously made this city landmark the perfect spot for a “wedding of the century,” a young upstart employee (Chloe Grace Moretz) is tasked with taking care of this problem for the higher ups. Which leads her to hiring who she thinks is the best cat for the job; and leads to Jerry’s reaction confirming what audiences around the world have known for years. In this battle of wits, the competition isn’t even close.
The fifth James Bond actor would need to be found before Goldeneye could turn its gaze to the world, and sure enough, Remington Steele star Pierce Brosnan was no longer held back by a network TV contract. While he had to pass on becoming Bond the first time around, Brosnan was able to slip into the tuxedo, continuing a new tradition of the second time being the charm. Announced as the new Bond in 1994, Pierce Brosnan wouldn’t be the only change to the landmark espionage series. Goldeneye’s greater stamp on the James Bond legacy would be in the casting of Dame Judi Dench, who became the first female to play the role of M. With traditionally womanizing 007 being given a stern female boss who’d call him out as, “…a sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the cold war,” leading women in the James Bond legacy would start to change for the progressive from this point on. It all came to a head when Goldeneye was marketed to a then Bond-less world with the following explosive teaser:

The Star Wars franchise has entertained moviegoers for decades, with George Lucas’ colorful galaxy being passed down across the generations.

It’s been a rough few days for actor Johnny Depp who, following a judge’s decision against him in a libel lawsuit he had brought, was removed from his role as Grindelwald in the next Fantastic Beasts movie. While it appears the loss of the role won’t be much of a financial hit to Depp, fans are still doing their part to get the actor brought back into another successful franchise.
