Channing Tatum Was Apparently More Productive In Quarantine Than Most Of Us

Channing Tatum said he’s been spending more time with his daughter recently, and out popped The One and Only Sparkella, a book dedicated to promoting self expression in young girls. He has dedicated the book to Everly, calling her “the most brilliant magical being that I have ever known” and his “greatest teacher” in his dedication. So cute! He also wrote this in its dedication (via People):

Halloween And 4 Other Horror Franchises That Would Be Scarier During A Pandemic

The Conjuring

To be entirely honest, I don’t think The Conjuring would be as terrifying in a pandemic as some of these other franchises, but it’s only because the premise doesn’t get much more terrifying. Dealing with active malevolent spirits in the midst of a pandemic would be a nightmare, especially when there’s no real reprieve from them during a shutdown. Oh, the crazy ghost in your house that won’t stop rocking in the creaky rocking chair? Too bad, you can’t leave the house.

Primal Fear Ending Explained: A Closer Look At That Dark Twist

What Happened At The End?

Vail wants to prove Aaron’s innocence by arguing that he has dissociative identity disorder. To prove this, Vail has Aaron take the stand and then tries to provoke him to get his other personality, Roy, to appear. Vail’s attempts alone don’t work, so he lets prosecutor Janet Venable (Laura Linney) interrogate Aaron.

As expected, her tough approach leads to Aaron bringing out Roy, who attacks Janet in court. This leads to Aaron getting a verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity. He’ll be transferred to a maximum-security mental health facility. Janet points out earlier in the movie that that sentence will likely lead to him only being locked up for a few months.

If Noah Segan Isn’t In Knives Out 2, It’ll Ruin Thanksgiving

There’s a good reason why that seemingly hyperbolic statement is correct, and it came from the recent interview I conducted with Noah Segan on behalf of his recent horror film The Pale Door. Since Rian Johnson admitted that the follow-up to Knives Out that would see Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc returning for a brand new mystery, that leaves the fate of Trooper Wagner in question. So I had to ask, would Noah prefer to return as Trooper Wagner, or would he want to play a new role, even though word hasn’t been officially given that he’d be in the next Blanc film. Mr. Segan, in truly characteristic fashion, had this to say:

Reservoir Dogs: 10 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About The Quentin Tarantino Cult Classic

The First Sundance Screening Was A ‘Disaster’

It’s always a great honor to have your independent film premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Founded in 1978, the Utah-based film-centric event is a cornerstone for some of the biggest, most exemplary indies of the past few decades, and Quentin Tarantino’s directorial debut is one of the movies that helped establish this film festival as the place where careers foster and grow and young, up-and-coming filmmakers become some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Alas, while Sundance played a pivotal role in Reservoir Dogs‘ future success, the film’s first screening was a legendary disaster. It was a complicated process bringing the film to the festival, with the final print reportedly shipped a mere three days before its first screening, and the film was plagued by a faulty projection, misbehaving lights, and a power outage at a crucial point. 

According to Tarantino, part of the problem was that the theater didn’t have a scope lens for the projector, so the movie didn’t look right all the way through. And it got worse from there. Here’s what Tarantino said:

AMC Head Honcho Reveals Thoughts On Mulan Going Straight To Disney+

Going into 2020, the plan was for Mulan to play in theaters starting March 27, and the world premiere was even held in Los Angeles on March 9. However, due to the global health crisis, Mulan’s release date was pushed to July 24 and then moved back to August 24 before being taken off the calendar altogether. Mulan will still have a theatrical run in various other countries, but if you live in the United States, you’ll need to have access to Disney+.

Why Bill And Ted Face The Music Was A Sequel Worth Waiting Almost 30 Years For

It’s hard for even me to properly explain what the Bill and Ted franchise means to me, I’m not sure I even understand it, but I’m certainly going to try. While many people reading this likely discovered the first two movies on DVD, or even VHS, I saw both of them in the theater. I was very much looking forward to seeing the new movie that way as well, even going so far as to try and track down the friend I saw the first two movies with, who I haven’t seen or spoken to in a couple of decades. That was not meant to be, but Bill and Ted Face the Music is here. It’s the first movie that I’ve actually been willing to spend PVOD money on because I wanted to see it so much, and it was totally worth waiting nearly three decades to see it end.

The Tenet Questions John David Washington Knows He’ll Get From Family And Friends

John David Washington plays a character with no name in Tenet. He’s a CIA agent lured into a mission involving a Russian arms dealer (Kenneth Branagh) who practices time inversion, thanks to an invention that happened… in the future. I know. It’s a lot. When we spoke with Washington, we asked what questions he expected to get from friends and family, now that Tenet is starting to screen, and he told us:

Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Admits Being ‘Half-Satisfied’ With The Original Movie

One difference between Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and the original is the remake is being split into two parts. While the original tried to cram a massive epic into two hours, it looks like Villeneuve’s approach will be to give it breathing room over those two parts. For some movies, this doesn’t play out too well, like The Hobbit trilogy. But, for Dune, it just might work.
