Given the sentimental nature of the story, it seems appropriate that George Clooney would extend that tenderness to his fans. Clooney seems to have a generally jovial demeanor so, for some, it may not be too surprising that he would be generous when it comes to his fans. Despite this, it’s also good to see that he’s making sure to take his safety and that of the fans into consideration.
Whether Or Not They Loved The Movie, Some Fans Loved Thunder Force’s Representation Of Female Superheroes
Just because you don’t like a movie doesn’t mean that you can’t find something within its narrative or presentation that’s worthwhile and that seems to be the case for a number of Thunder Force fans, who despite not enjoying the movie all that much, took note of the triumphs it made in the representation department. Throughout the movie, Lydia Berman (Melissa McCarthy), Emily Stanton (Octavia Spencer), and Tracy Stanton (Taylor Mosby) are all treated with respect (well, when Lydia isn’t eating raw chicken) and prove that you don’t have to be prototypical superhero to save the city from a supercharged villain like William “The King” Stevens (Bobby Cannavale) and his band of miscreants.
One Twitter user seemed underwhelmed by the acting and story, but noted that there was a lot of LGBTQ representation, which honestly isn’t something that happens enough in the superhero genre:
Cyborg wouldn’t have been the only superhero interacting with Flash either, as the movie is set to star Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton as their respective versions of Batman, as well as Sasha Calle appearing as Supergirl. Because Cyborg’s role was apparently so integral to the forthcoming DCEU movie, it’s unclear if his role will now be filled by another character or if The Flash script has been rewritten to flow without said role. Either way, with just weeks to go until The Flash begins principal photography, it’s hard to see how the decision to remove Ray Fisher could be overturned so quickly so that he’d be ready for the shoot. Maybe at the very least, something would be worked out where the actor only briefly appeared.
When you’re able to call something your ‘dream job,’ it’s a beautiful day in whatever profession you’ve chosen. That particular wisdom applies even more when you happen to be an actor like Octavia Spencer, and the dream job happens to involve a friend like Melissa McCarthy, which is exactly what happened on Netflix’s Thunder Force set. When it comes to this super-powered comedy’s formula for success, Spencer chalks the dream-like quality of the gig to her chemistry with not only her co-star, but also their shared writer/director, Ben Falcone.
Disney’s Magical Express gave guests booking vacations to Walt Disney World the ability to go right from their place to the bus taking them to their hotel, without even requiring them to pick up their bags. The good news for fans of that service is that Mears Connect, which will begin service on January 1, 2022, the day after the Disney Magical Express ends, will still provide many of those services, including luggage handling. However, the one big difference is that while the Magical Express was a free service, according to The Points Guy, Means Connect will not be, although, exactly what it will cost has not yet been announced.
Along with his physical accomplishments, Luke Evans has been killing it on the acting front in recent years. In addition to Beauty and the Beast, 2017 saw him reprising Owen Shaw in Fate of the Furious and playing William Moulton Marston in Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, followed by State Like Sheep and 10×10 in 2018. 2019 saw Evans appear in six movies, including Murder Mystery and Midway, and his most recent cinematic appearance was in Crisis, which dropped in March. Evans also starred with Daniel Brühl and Dakota Fanning in the TNT series The Alienist, and provided his voice for the Hulu animated series Crossing Swords.

My Fair Lady (1964)
Starring Audrey Hepburn as a Cockney flower girl, and Rex Harrison as a stuffy phonetics instructor, this film, based off of the Lerner and Loewe stage musical, which in turn, is based off of the Bernard Shaw play, Pygmalion, is a fun little story with some pleasant songs. It’s a little long, but if you dig musicals, then you really can’t go wrong with My Fair Lady.
In 1965, My Fair Lady was the seventh musical to win Best Picture, and believe it or not, The Sound of Music, another musical, won the very next year. When it came out, My Fair Lady was the most expensive American movie ever made, and it shows in the set designs and costumes. There was a bit of a controversy since Audrey Hepburn’s singing was mostly dubbed, but otherwise, it’s a pretty squeaky-clean musical and fun for the whole family. With a little bit of luck, you’ll get a chance to watch it.
Having said that, Michael B. Jordan says that, ultimately, this franchise is supposed to be something independent of the Rocky movies, and if that’s the case, it needs to stand on its own without the support of the previous franchise, and that franchise’s star character. Jordan continued,

The theatrical box office has been so empty for more than a year there are basically tumbleweeds rolling through it. Most of the movies that have hit theaters have been smaller productions that were never expected to set records, as all the movies that need strong box office to succeed have been continually delayed waiting for that time that people are both willing and able to return to theaters. But with the release of Godzilla vs. Kong, it appears that time may have finally come, and the studio has reacted to its risky arrival.
