Almost nothing spreads faster on the Internet than rumors of a popular movie possibly getting a sequel. Unfortunately, Dirty Work is not a particularly popular movie; so, it took until this morning for me, Dirty Work’s biggest fan, to find out that apparently director Bob Saget and company have approval from some “big cheeses” to explore making a sequel. They’re not there yet, but forward progress is being made. So, if everyone involved could stop uhhhh lifting weights and start writing the script, that would be great.
George Clooney doesn’t work as much as he used to. The actor has accomplished a lot in his career and it seems quite clear that these days he has other things he’s interested in, and so, we don’t see him on the screen quite as often as we might like. However, because we don’t seem him as much, when George Clooney does decide to get in front of a camera, or behind one, or in the case of the new Netflix film The Midnight Sky, both, there’s an automatic hope that the movie we’re getting is something special.
Nab Film Collectibles From Mondo And Alamo Drafthouse
Whether it’s to add to your own personal collection or to snag a last-minute holiday gift for a fellow film-lover, Mondo and Alamo Drafthouse are selling film collectibles and posters, with all of the proceeds going toward paying Alamo Drafthouse staff and paying debt and expenses occurred during COVID-19 closures, said Alamo Drafthouse co-founder and Executive Chairman Tim League on the Alamo Drafthouse blog.
Part of the special sale, billed by League as “Invading the Alamo Basement,” is a special auction of Mondo posters. Fifteen years worth of Mondo collectible posters are being auctioned off starting at $1 until Dec. 13. Mondo posters are known for their unique and beautiful designs of new and classic movies—as exhibited by the originally Star Wars trilogy posters shown above—and are made in limited capacities. This is a rare chance to access Mondo posters that may have long since been out of stock.
Other great movie collectibles are available to purchase and support Alamo Drafthouse, including officially licensed enamel pins of famous movies and characters; movie-inspired t-shirts; Alamo Drafthouse swag; action figures and figurines; and more.
But no, the latest Chris Pratt karate-related news has nothing to do with Parks and Recreation. The Jurassic World star has instead signed on to lead and produce a comedy called The Black Belt. In the movie, Pratt will play an “unorthodox” uncle to a teen boy who is determined to become an expert in karate.
One can understand why Christopher Nolan likes The Fast and the Furious the most given that it’s the movie that started it all, introducing us to character’s like Paul Walker’s Brian O’Connor and Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto, and showing how integral fast cars are to their lives. Still, he’s certainly not in appreciating Tokyo Drift, the third Fast & Furious movie which, aside from a Diesel cameo at the end, starred all-new characters. As of last year, we’re now at nine total Fast & Furious movies, with Hobbs & Shaw being the first spinoff and F9 only months away from arriving.
This particular story’s intrigue only grows after mention of a much earlier get-together addressing the value of films potentially shifting to HBO Max. As early as last November, Warner Bros had a meeting to discuss the strategic usage of the studio’s theatrical titles as HBO Max Originals. With that possibility in the air, pre-pandemic, the following decision was apparently made and cited by the DGA in its letter:
This gives Marvel and Sony a unique opportunity to protect the original love and lore of the classic Spider-Man movies, while simultaneously present new opportunities for these characters to be used elsewhere. For example, if Doctor Octopus never puts New York in peril with his fusion reactor, that would change a lot about each character’s timeline going forward. Otto Octavius would still be alive, MJ may never know Peter is Spider-Man or his true feelings towards her, and the world may have never seen Topher Grace play Venom.
Well, in Byron Bay, New South Wales to be specific. The location has been a celebrity haunt for a while now and it’s all really thanks to Chris Hemsworth, but more on that later. According to the most recent piece of information, Ben Affleck is also looking to jump into the housing market in Byron Bay. Per the Daily Mail, Affleck is allegedly looking for real estate in the area following his pal Matt Damon’s alleged purchase (by the Daily Telegraph) of a $22 million dollar property in the area.
No Sudden Move, TBD (Post-Production)
Matt Damon has been the unofficial king of the cameos in recent years. Beyond his above-mentioned appearance in 2019’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Damon has made memorable appearances in Deadpool 2 and Thor: Ragnarok over the last couple of years.
Damon also has done a handful of cameos in some of long-time collaborator Steven Soderbergh’s films, and could have another one on his hands with a report that he will appear in Soderbergh’s HBO Max film No Sudden Move.
No Sudden Move is set in 1955 Detroit and follows a group of small-time criminals hired to steal a simple document. However, when the job goes wrong, they search for the mysterious party who hired them and learn of the much bigger game that they have unwittingly become a part of. The unsurprisingly star-studded ensemble cast includes Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro, David Harbour, Amy Seimetz, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Kieran Culkin, Brendan Fraser, Noah Jupe, Bill Duke, Frankie Shaw and Julia Fox. Damon, according to Deadline, was set to shoot his part in two days this past November.
Within the last month, the Ratatouille musical went completely viral, with Disney getting involved and the voice actor behind Remy, Patton Oswalt, also taking notice. The creators had gone so far as to create a Playbill for the musical featuring the eighteen songs, which have been written and performed by a variety of talents from across the globe. At this point, there are songs that have been composed for just about every scene and character. Some memorable favorites including “Tango for Colette and Linguini” and “Trash is Our Treasure.” Lizzy Hale, the Senior Manager of Content at TikTok U.S, said this of the musical now coming to life:
