Considering the spot Red Granite is currently in with the Malaysian and U.S. goverments, it’s slim that Jordan Belfort will be getting the $300 million he’s asked for in his lawsuit. However, he could be freed from the rights agreement he made with the production company. Belfort could negotiate the rights to his Wolf of Wall Street sequel memoir, Catching the Wolf of Wall Street. Check out what Red Granite’s lawyer said about the case:
We Haven’t Seen Her Reunite With Anyone From Her Old Life
When Carol Danvers returned to Earth in 1995, she crossed paths again with her best friend, Maria Rambeau, and Maria’s daughter, Monica. The reunion was welcome, but short-lived since Carol went back into space, and while she and Nick Fury were near each other at Tony Stark’s funeral, we never actually saw them reunite with one another.
The only notable absences from the big Ghostbusters reunion is Rick Moranis’ Louis Tully, as Moranis hasn’t appeared in a movie in twenty years, and Harold Ramis’ Egon Spengler, who died back in 2014. Bill Murray spoke about the fallen Ghostbuster in the on-set interview with these words:
At the beginning of January, the streaming platform removed Dr. Dolittle, Strange Magic, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Sandlot and so forth. Now, as of February 1, one of those titles is returning to Disney+: the 1993 cult-classic The Sandlot. And hey, this is great news for fans of the baseball-centered family comedy!
While horror movies are made with the intention of scaring movie-goers, it’s not uncommon for the people who make them to have a lot of fun during production. Those who possess the prankster spirit can find nearly endless opportunities to get up to some mischief on spooky, dimly lit sets and with creepy props and elements of production design, and it can often make the whole experience a lot more fun between takes.
Floria Signismondi’s new film The Turning is a prime example. Most of the production took place on the grounds of a creepy mansion/estate in Ireland, and actress Brooklynn Prince did her best to utilize it to her advantage and scare her co-stars. As I learned sitting down with Prince and Finn Wolfhard during the film’s Los Angeles press day, however, the efforts didn’t exactly go as planned:
That’s because Denis Villeneuve wants to bring new, original stories to the screen instead of just playing the hits with sequel after sequel. So he wouldn’t want to just do extensions of what’s been done before with a continuation of Blade Runner 2049. However, as the director told Empire, he would still be interested in revisiting the universe of the film to tell an entirely new story.
Whether The Force Awakens intentionally lifted from Clone Wars or it was just a coincidence, Genndy Tartakovsky (whose credits also include the Hotel Transylvania movies, Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack and Primal) seems to okay with the similarity. And to be fair, these shots are seen in wildly different circumstances, with the Clone Wars ships having recently crashed, while the Star Destroyer Rey passes by after scavenging having crashed during the Battle of Jakku, which occurred decades earlier following the events of Return of the Jedi.
Sonic the Hedgehog may be opening on Valentine’s Day, but the Blue Blur has his sights set not on candy hearts, roses, chocolates or even golden rings, he’s eyeing major box office bucks.The latest tracking is in for Paramount’s adaptation of Sega’s iconic videogame franchise and Sonic the Hedgehog is projected to enjoy a 4-day opening weekend between $41 million and $47 million according to Deadline.
But as we saw in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck’s Batman was still in tip top physical shape, with his workout including tire dragging and weighted pull-ups. With the kind of physique he had, it’s no wonder that he ended up wearing a bulkier costume, although the carbon fiber tri-weave definitely contributed to the suit’s size too.
Kanye West is a rapper, a songwriter, a record producer, an entrepreneur and a fashion designer and now we may be able to add casting director to his list of skills and occupations because he hit on a positively inspired choice of who could play him in a movie. Yes, apparently Kanye West once actually called actor Danny McBride, asking him to play him in a movie about the acclaimed musician’s life.
