Andrew Erwin, who will co-direct the movie with his brother Jon Erwin, said Zachary Levi is “born to play” Kurt Warner, an Iowa native who later led the St. Louis Rams to Super Bowl victory during his first season as a starter (the only quarterback to ever do so besides Tom Brady). Zachary Levi spoke about his new role with these words:
This has been a week that’s seen the stories surrounding Joss Whedon’s time as the fill-in director of Warner Bros’ Justice League get more interesting as time has gone on. What started as a simple rescinding of support given to the director by one of the film’s stars, Ray Fisher, had quickly turned into allegations of “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable behavior” being displayed on the set of the 2017 would-be blockbuster. And now, those allegations have been soundly denied by one of the two alleged “enablers” of such behavior, producer Jon Berg.
Sadly, there’s no mention of a potential release date, as Emancipation’s bidding war took place against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic. With that particular complication, it’s probably difficult to scope out just when Antoine Fuqua and Will Smith will be able to get things into motion and make this harrowing story of historic escape. And there’s of course the obvious stumbling block of the current film on Smith’s plate, the tennis biopic King Richard, needing to be completed for its November 19, 2021 release.
While I’m grateful for my health and my ability to work from home and I know missing out on the movies is not something to whine over, it’s still hard to remember what happened, and how we got here, much less slog through a world that’s missing a lot of the small joys we all look forward to, in my case, plunking down into big, comfy theater seats. Remembering that we’d be at the point where we could pre-order Black Widow’s release really just highlights how far we’ve strayed from where we thought we’d be this year. Stay safe and be kind to one another.
While this version of the Quantum Realm certainly would have been cool to see in Avengers: Endgame, I’d argue that the final product did a better job of reflecting its microscopic nature. Granted, if you kept up with the Ant-Man movies, you were already well aware of the, but for those who skipped out on Scott Lang’s solo adventures, then Endgame caught you up to speed on this strange alternate dimension.
This cringe-worthy scripted scene of Rose Byrne licking Steve Carell’s face was surprising, to say the least, when it appeared in the Irresistible trailer. It comes so fast and sudden after Rose Byrne’s character calls Steve Carell’s character fat, it takes you off guard a little.
But, this is the type of extreme and hyperbolic comedy that you might come to expect from Jon Stewart, who played with satire and extremes for years on his hit comedy show The Daily Show. It’s also the kind of comedy Steve Carell is familiar with since he worked with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show in the past. So, all things considered, Steve Carell is the perfect fit for the role.
Kind of, because the guys to talk a lot about the state of the movie-release calendar for the rest of the year, and how that will affect the awards season (of just ANY movies that we get to watch). As movie release dates keep getting pushed back, the guys take a pretty bold stance on the future of movie theaters in 2020. Take a listen.
Sam Neill’s comments to Yahoo! are sure to delight audiences who are eagerly anticipating any indication of Jurassic World: Dominion‘s contents. Because while Jeff Goldlbum had limited screentime in the most recent Jurassic World movie, Dominion will put the OG’s back in action. With dinosaurs now free and living roaming the world, smart money says characters Ian Malcolm, Ellie Sattler, and Alan Grant will presumably be a valuable resource given their experienced in the park.
There’s no word if this Jason Momoa-led movie is a remake of the original cartoon classic or a total reimagining. But, if I had to guess, I’d say it’s unlikely this is a remake of the cartoon classic and will probably be its own thing entirely. Whatever it turns out to be, they have quite the screenwriter in David Berenbaum, considering Elf is practically a Christimas classic at this point.
What a class act. Tobin Bell understands what a complicated and fascinating his Saw character is, and can see a future for Jigsaw to be played by another actor sometime in the future. Although if that happened, said performer would have some ver big shoes to fill; Bell is a bonafide horror legend at this point.
