The big question is whether or not audiences will still be on board the Disney remake train by the time this rumored Rapunzel adaptation hits theaters. In the next few years, there will be a ton of live action remakes for us to feast our eyes on. The already divisive Mulan is soon to hit theaters, but the studio is also developing new versions of The Little Mermaid, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Sword in the Stone, Lilo & Stitch, and Bambi, just to name a few. While there are some rumblings from fans that enough is enough, it seems there are other fans who still can’t get enough. And they may be excited for yet another live action princess to root for.
The Batman’s director shared a video on Twitter on February 13. Just under a minute long, the clip – entitled “The Batman – Camera Test” offers a dramatic close-up look at Robert Pattinson in Bruce Wayne’s iconic batsuit (and a hint at Michael Giacchino’s powerful, foreboding score for the film!). But since the footage has a red tint to it, Matt Reeves strategically kept us in the dark where the overall coloring of the suit is concerned. But luckily, some talented fan artists were happy to let their imaginations run wild. Though none of the images they created are in any way official, they do offer up some idea of what we might expect.
While You Were Sleeping (Disney+)
Released in 1995, While You Were Sleeping stars Sandra Bullock as Lucy, a family-less Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) fare token collector. Every day, hot businessman Peter Callaghan (Peter Gallagher) enters the train at her station. She has developed a crush on him despite them never speaking. One day, muggers attack Peter and push him onto the train tracks. Lucy rescues him and takes him to the hospital. The nurse misunderstands Lucy and believes that she is Peter’s fiancé, which is relayed to Peter’s estranged family. While Peter is in a coma, Lucy pretends to be his fiancé while starting to develop feelings for his brother, Jack (Bill Pullman).
On that adjusted gross list, the first Star Wars movie is actually still above Avengers: Endgame. The “adjusted” list of highest-grossing movies is currently Gone with the Wind, Avatar, Titanic, Star Wars, Avengers: Endgame, The Sound of Music, E.T., The Ten Commandments, Doctor Zhivago, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
After many fans were convinced Nathan Fillon was playing Arm-Fall-Off-Boy in the movie, James Gunn recently debunked that theory. Tons of new characters are joining the cast this time around, with Taika Waititi, Michael Rooker, David Dastmalchian, Pete Davidson, Peter Capaldi, Sean Gunn and Storm Reid coming on board, just to name a few. Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang and Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller are also reprising their roles.
The famed private investigator, who rose to prominence following a profile in The New Yorker of which he was the subject, at first appeared to be an unnecessary, and almost bumbling, presence in the investigation of Harlan Thrombey’s death, which seemed like an open-and-shut case of suicide. Daniel Craig’s character was even judgmental of his own deductive reasoning, on account that he was unable to identify the anonymous person who hired him for the case in the first place. However, by the conclusion of Knives Out, Benoit Blanc manages to piece together the events prior to and following Harlan Thrombey’s death with pin point accuracy, ultimately rendering any criticism of his skill a moot point.
As far as Long Shot as a whole is concerned, the movie was a critical success, ranking at 81% among critics and scoring a 75% among audiences on Rotten Tomatoes. Commercially though, it only made a little over $53 million worldwide off a reported $40 million budget. The cast of the movie originally known as Flarsky also included O’Shea Jackson Jr., June Diane Raphael, Bob Odenkirk, Alexander Skarsgård, Ravi Patel and Andy Serkis.
The second resort we were in, called Ischgl, shares the border. There were little signs, like, ‘This way, Switzerland.’ I’m, like, let’s do it. So I’m by myself, I’m skiing down, I was like, this is so lovely and, like, but I don’t see a chair lift back at all. And I end up in a small town in Switzerland. Gone for, like, three hours. I have to figure out, like, a bus and a tram. I had no money.
According to the history lesson Mikey gives his friends in his attic earlier in the film, One-Eyed Willie hid his treasure sometime in the early 1600s, which means that, in 1985, these traps are nearing 400 years old. It is highly unlikely that such contraptions, many of which are based on a rope and pulley system, would have been equipped with the durability to withstand damage from weathering, termite damage, and countless other factors.
As Avatar was once the highest grossing movie in the world, and it’s taken quite a bit of time and money to get to the next film in the series, there’s a massive bet that is about to either pay off or wipe out. Even this particular scenario is a double-edged sword, as if Avatar 2 succeeds, Disney might just want to park its money there. However, if it fails, that’s something that’s going to trigger more restructuring and damage control, which could muddy the waters even more.
