The We All Die Young Cast Includes Justice Smith, Idris Elba And Taylour Paige
In the lead-up to the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2021, Deadline got the scoop on We All Die Young and its small (for now, at least), yet extremely talented cast, consisting of a diverse group of actors at various stages of their respective careers.
First is Justice Smith, the Pokémon: Detective Pikachu star who most recently appeared on the HBO Max original series Generation, and will soon return to action in Jurassic World: Dominion. In the upcoming hip hop drama, Smith will portray Marcus, a 25-year-old rapper who finds himself in a rather difficult position in terms of his career and life. Idris Elba, coming off The Suicide Squad, will play Marcus’ long-time mentor and father figure who also happens to own the record label that releases his albums. Taylour Paige, who made waves with her electric performance as the titular character in the 2021 based-on-true-events drama, Zola, will play a woman who comes into Marcus’ life and forces him to reevaluate his situation.
The 52-year-old shared the latest Halloween Kills trailer with her followers, and it features a moment with her early on speaking with some kids in the hopes of protecting them from Michael Myers. We don’t know if she’ll survive the knife of the Haddonfield killer, but as the trailer reveals, there will be a lot of callbacks to characters from the 1978 original. As Laurie Strode plans her revenge on the killer, other members of the neighborhood that share some of her trauma seem to be trying to keep surviving as well. Here is Richards’ caption:
I love these kinds of Halloween costumes because, while some might be content to simply buy a costume at the store, and others might work hard to design something complex from scratch, this falls someplace in between. The hammer might have been purchased or built, and the same goes for the wig and the beard. But the rest of the costume was quite possibly just clothes that were sitting in the closet, and finding a great use for that stuff for Halloween is always fun.
In case you were wondering, the other four Hollywood-produced films to reach this milestone are pretty much the usual suspects you’d expect. And at the time of this writing, through numbers provided by Box Office Mojo, Free Guy is within striking distance of another Disney movie’s impressive showings. From the top of the pack and in descending order, here are the other movies that make up 2021’s brightest stars:
Why Bride Of Frankenstein Lives Should Inspire A Movie
What a clever reimagining of Frankenstein this would be. Plus, it could finally forward the story of Bride of Frankenstein in a way horror fans have never seen before. From what I gathered from the maze’s take on the story, the Bride was created to be the mate of the monster, but perhaps rejected his ideas to vanish into the woods and be a couple forever. She seems to kill the monster, but much like him, she still longs to not be the only monster in the world. Therefore, she starts to push back against humanity and actually kill people in order to harvest their body parts and create horrifying monsters of her own, and perhaps resurrect the monster in the process into her own perfect mate. It would turn the tables beautifully! … And horrifyingly.
Jake Gyllenhaal’s response, as well as some further explanation from director Antoine Fuqua, came out of my inquiry about what luxuries both of these collaborators missed thanks to The Guilty’s tight shooting schedule. On top of shooting their film during the COVID-19 pandemic, the remake of the 2018 Danish film from director Gustav Möller was initially intended to be shot over the course of five days. That schedule stretched to 11 days, which saw Gyllenhaal looking to have 15-20 page chunks of dialogue memorized for each day. For a normal production, that’s already an intense experience, but for one that threw technology into the mix, it was even more stunning.
The Supporting Cast Includes Jonah Hauer-King, Javier Bardem, And The Voice Talents Of Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, And Awkwafina
Along with Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy leading the show in the lead roles, The Little Mermaid cast will also include the supporting talents of Jonah Hauer-King and Javier Bardem as Prince Eric, our hunky human prince, and King Triton, the King of Atlantica and Ariel’s intensely overprotective father, respectively. Additionally, Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, and Awkwafina will each lend their voices to three prominent parts. Specifically, Diggs will be heard as Sebastian, Ariel’s loyal crab, Tremblay will lend his pipes to the role of Flounder, Ariel’s tropical fish best friend, and Awkwafina will voice Scuttle, Ariel’s winged wingman who has been changed from a seagull to a diving bird.

After being delayed more than a year, the film side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally launched this past July with the release of Black Widow in both theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings followed two months later, but unlike Scarlett Johansson’s solo outing as Natasha Romanoff, Simu Liu’s MCU debut was released exclusively in theaters. However, we finally know when Shang-Chi will become available to stream on Disney+, and it’s not too far off.
Even though the main Fast & Furious film series will start winding down in the coming years, the franchise will continue to expand through spinoffs like Hobbs & Shaw 2 and a yet-to-be-titled female-led movie. So if Universal Pictures is willing to delve into R-rated territory with this property, maybe a Han spinoff could be in the cards, whether it’s set after F9/the remaining main Fast & Furious movies, or, as has become common with this character, we wind the clock back a bit, such as between Fast & Furious 6 and Tokyo Drift, or to the period between Tokyo Drift and F9 when he was working for Mr. Nobody. Han certainly has a big enough fanbase who would surely turn out in droves to see him spotlighted in a story taking place far away from the Fast & Furious franchise’s traditionally PG-13 confines.
As you’ll see reflected as you continue reading this feature, there isn’t a ton of color diversity when it comes to lightsabers, with most of them being either blue, green, or red, but that’s what makes Mace Windu’s weapon so special. Though it has the same Kyber crystal construction as most, it emits an amethyst plasma blade that allows it to stand out in a field of Jedi doing battle. Sadly, though, the special laser sword has seemingly been lost in the Star Wars universe ever since Anakin betrayed the Jedi Order by pledging his allegiance to Senator Palpatine and letting the future emperor kill Mace Windu with Force lightning. (As for why the lightsaber is purple, the answer is simple: Samuel L. Jackson wanted it that way, and George Lucas acquiesced).
