It seems quite clear that these theme parks lands based on single properties, not simply similar concepts, are what we’re going to continue to see more often as time goes on. And while previous versions of the idea have their strengths, and all are great in their own way, Avengers Campus feels like it’s found the right balance. Now, both Disney, and its competitors, can take what Avengers Campus has done, and make each element bigger and better. We certainly haven’t seen the end of this idea, but the next massive and impressive theme parks lands we get will largely have Avengers Campus to thank.
Luca is inspired by Enrico Casarosa’s own childhood living in the Italian Riviera and his experiences with his best friend (aside from the whole sea monster bit). Casarosa was much like Luca, more afraid and reserved, whilst his friend was daring and bold like Alberto. As the director shared with us, the ending of Luca actually came about when he was talking to his real best friend about the importance of friendship, including the cycle of growing apart. Casarosa expanded on reaching the finale to CinemaBlend (also in the video above):
As fortunate as Gemma Chan feels to get a second chance at the MCU, she is also in rare company now. Of the hundreds of actors who have appeared in a Marvel movie, very few have been asked back to play a second role. She joins the likes of Chris Evans, who played the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four series before donning Captain America’s shield, and Mahershala Ali, who will play Blade after portraying villain Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes on Luke Cage.
We’ll get a chance to see how Gemma Chan embodies her new role when Eternals finally hits theaters on November 5, 2021.
Christopher Coppola, Nicolas Cage’s brother, confirmed that Joy Vogelsang passed away last month on May 26. The producer and director announced the news through a sentimental Facebook post. In the post, he detailed his final day with his mother, unfortunately mentioning that he had to leave her side for a few hours and sadly was not with her when she passed away.
The Scream co-director’s Instagram post also highlights the fact that Scream fans will still find familiarity in the series when the new film hits theaters. He tagged many of the film’s stars, including returning Scream icons Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox and David Arquette, all of whom will be reprising their roles in the fifth installment. They will be joined by a batch of fresh blood, including Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera and Jack Quaid.

With In The Heights out in the world, comparisons to Hamilton are inevitable. For the past six years, we’ve attached Lin-Manuel Miranda’s name to the Broadway phenomenon that has far surpassed and overshadowed his original 2008 musical in popularity. While there are some common threads between the two, such as both being heavily influenced by hip-hop music, how might they have influenced each other?
Brixton Lore’s Cybernetic Enhancements (Hobbs And Shaw)
The first (and for now, only) Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs and Shaw not only left behind much of the cast from previous films (only Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw remain), but it went full sci-fi action thriller with the introduction of the “Black Superman” Brixton Lore (Idris Elba) and his cybernetic enhancements. The former MI6 field agent who has a history with Shaw, Lore will stop at nothing to help the techno-terrorist organization Eteon steal The Snowflake (more on that next) and carry out the group’s diabolical plan.
With his various cybernetic enhancements, Brixton Lore has superhuman strength, extreme durability that allows him to fall from a building and not miss a step, and unmatched hand-to-hand combat skills that push Hobbs and Shaw to their limits. Oh, and he also has enhanced vision like he’s terminator or something. Too bad we never got to see Dominic Toretto, the franchise’s original superhero, take on Lore.
Sebastian Stan’s recollection of these fight sequences is a testament to how bonds can form between co-stars on set. Yes, it can be intimidating at times, but it’s in those moments that camaraderie is born. And although Chadwick Boseman isn’t here anymore, Stan can always cherish the special connection he and his co-star formed while working together.
In December 2016, Illumination Entertainment continued its momentous run at the box office with the arrival of the animated jukebox musical comedy Sing. With a star-studded cast that included the likes of Matthew McConaughy, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Taron Egerton, and dozens of other famous actors and singers, a great story, and excellent execution, the movie became a quick hit with fans of all shapes, sizes, and species. And, just like other Illumination projects, like the Despicable Me franchise for example, Sing will soon have a sequel of its own.
As it stands there’s a lot we know about the upcoming animated sequel from the Sing 2 release date, its expansive cast including new additions Bono, Bobby Cannavale, Pharrell Williams, and Latitia Wright, and much, much more. So, while we look toward the arrival of the anticipated musical comedy, let’s break down everything we know about Sing 2 before it’s released in theaters…
So while things may never be exactly the same as they were pre-pandemic, especially for former annual pass holders, the park is slowly but surely getting back to a point where it can still be the Happiest Place on Earth for its die-hard fans. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on news of the new membership program as it arrives.
