Filmmaker Zack Snyder’s name has become synonymous with the DC Extended Universe, after kickstarting the property with projects like Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. His version of Justice League also finally arrived on streaming this year, revealing his four-hour vision for the blockbuster. There’s currently an online debate about whether or not Batman perform oral sex on his partners, and Snyder has weighed in with a hilarious NSFW response.
For now though, Dominic Toretto is still hanging around with his crew, which includes Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Ortiz, Tyrese Gibson’s Roman Pearce, Ludacris’ Tej Parker and Nathalie Emmanuel’s Ramsey. And those aren’t the only familiar faces returning for F9, as Dom will reunite with his sister, Jordan Brewster’s Mia, as well as Sung Kang’s Han Lue, who, despite appearances to the contrary, did not die in that car crash during Tokyo Drift. However, on the other side of the coin, the next Fast & Furious movie is bringing Dom and Mia’s estranged brother, John Cena’s Jakob, who has teamed up with Charlize Theron’s Cipher to make Dom’s life hell.
Greenland Brought In More Than $52 Million Worldwide In 2020, Despite Being Released During The Pandemic
Prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, Greenland was slated to open in theaters in the United States on June 12 of that year, but that date, and others like it, came and went, with the movie eventually forgoing its domestic run in favor of VOD release that October. And while American audiences never got to see Gerard Butler get his family to safety on the big screen, moviegoers in other territories ventured out to see the movie, which collected a total of $52.3 million worldwide throughout the second half of 2020, according to Box Office Mojo.
These numbers, combined with surprisingly favorable reviews, must have been enough for Greenland: Migration’s producers and financial backers (which include Anton, Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures, and Gerard Butler and Alan Siegel’s G-BASE) to put their resources into the upcoming sequel.
Marco Barricelli (Massimo Marcovaldo)
As Giulia Marcovaldo’s father, Massimo – an intimidating, yet kindhearted, fisherman and cook – we have Marco Barricelli, who is best known for his long history as an actor, writer, director, and educator in the world of theatre. However, for those who those who do not seek entertainment from the stage, the veteran performer has eight screen credits to his name – the most recent being Luca. He debuted on a 1987 episode of the popular daytime soap opera Guiding Light, appeared on the NBC legal drama L.A. Law in 1991, and had a four-episode stint on the dramedy The Book of Daniel (which only lasted twice as long in 2006), to name a few gig. Barricelli has even lent his voice to a few video games, including 1996’s Clandestiny and Manhunt 2 in 2007.
“Black Sheep” is now being listed on three major music charts: the Rock Digital Song Sales, Alternative Digital Song Sales and Hot Rock & Alternative Songs charts. The song is currently at No. 7 on the Rock and Alternative charts and No. 34 on the Hot Rock & Alternative charts. The song reportedly sold 2,000 copies within the week and was streamed over one million times in the U.S.
When it comes to breakthrough roles, Tom Hiddleston becoming Loki was one of Marvel’s best castings. Not only did Hiddleston graduate from indie films to blockbusters overnight, but he got to work with Anthony Hopkins. But even a two-time Oscar winner can get starstruck while filming a Marvel epic. Hiddleston admitted even Hopkins and other veterans occasionally fanboy out on the Marvel sets.
Throughout all of the Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway interviews I conducted, there was a huge connective thread that everyone had in common. That singularity came from the cast’s love for co-writer/director Will Gluck’s collaborative energy. Though Elizabeth Debicki was given notes to tone down the bossy nature of Mopsy Rabbit, it was all part of the process that honed the finished product into the delightful family film that all can enjoy. Even with the delay in release, and a couple years removed from the original recording sessions, Debicki easily described the experience as follows:
In association with Comic-Con, Paramount Pictures is screening Snake Eyes in 10 cities across the United States and Canada on Wednesday, July 21, two days before its wide release. If you live in, or are close to, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Miami, San Diego, Houston, Phoenix and Vancouver, you’ll be able to partake in one of these fan screenings, with specific details on how to reserve a spot to be revealed at a later date over at @snakeeyesmovie.
The Pizza Planet truck can be found later on in the movie. It’s a perfect homage considering the original home to pizza is, in fact, Italy. I’m sure Portorosso’s pizza is much, much better than the joint the Toy Story toys and Andy hung out in.
If there was ever an era that fit the Bond aesthetic in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, it would definitely be Sir Roger Moore’s. Yes, Thunderball feels like a huge influence, as it hits some of the same thematic materials from that film. Antonio Banderas’ Aristotle Papadopoulos feels like a sillier version of Emilio Largo, right down to his plot to hold Europe for ransom if his demands aren’t met. Plus, the entire final showdown takes place on the villain’s yacht, which again, is totally Thunderball.
