Well, that just expanded our hearts a couple sizes. This Christmas, it will have been twenty years since Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas was first released, and Jim Carrey acts like he just jumped off the set. It’s quite amazing how the actor can transform his face into the character without the need for makeup or prosthetics.
Disney never openly fired Johnny Depp in his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, unlike, say, James Gunn being fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after past tweets. Disney reinstated Gunn after several months of fan outcry, but any Pirates decision may also be based in economics. Depp is an expensive star and the most recent film wasn’t as well received as the studio hoped. They may save money by going with a reboot, although that would be a gamble too.
Joining Robert Pattinson and Jeffrey Wright in The Batman’s cast are Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Colin Farrell as Penguin, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson and Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál. In addition to directing, Matt Reeves also co-wrote The Batman’s screenplay with Mattson Tomlin.
Certain film directors have a visual language all their own, with a style that is instantly recognizable to audience. Chief among them is acclaimed filmmaker Wes Anderson, who has had celebrated works in both live-action and animation. Anderson has followed up his acclaimed animated movie Isle of Dogs with The French Dispatch. Officially titled The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun, the upcoming dramedy focuses on quirky, rogue journalists who are describing a fictional city. The movie will follow three distinct stories, allowing for Anderson to bring on a massive ensemble cast of names. Some of the actors involved in the upcoming movie include Benicio Del Toro, Adrien Brody, Elisabeth Moss, Tilda Swinton, Timothee Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Bill Murray, Liev Shreiber, Saoirse Ronan, and Liev Shreiber among others. The movie looks like it might be the first Oscar hopeful of 2020, and will hit theaters July 24th.
There Are Better Character Dynamics
As established earlier, now that we know who Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky are as people, To All The Boys 2 (which should have been called 2 All The Boys, for the record), allows the characters to interact and communicate with each other in more sincere, believable ways. Additionally, whenever John Ambrose enters the scene, the ways in which they intertwine with their personal backstories is more investing than the romantic triangle between Lara Jean, Peter Kavinsky, and Josh Sanderson, where Lara Jean was the only real, honest connection between these three characters. This time around, it is apparent that these three characters have a history together, outside of their romantic relationships, and it makes the dynamics found between them more investing to watch. There are more stakes in place, and you believe that Lara would both want to stay with Peter AND get together with John too.
Imagine A Grand One-Shot Music Number About Your Relationship
Courtesy of 2017’s almost-Best Picture La La Land comes a what-could-have-been story of romance and heartbreak. The beauty of Damien Chazelle’s musical is how it highlights the beauty of love, even the ones that don’t end up panning out. A romance such as the one Ryan Gosling Sebastian and Emma Stone’s Mia had is often shown beat-for-beat and it ends in happily ever after. In La La Land, audiences fall in love with this couple’s chemistry, but they are also faced with the struggles of a young relationship diverging on two paths. During the film’s beautiful finale, Sebastian imagines their future, but it’s all in its head. Often we romanticize our lost relationships after the fact, but they were better off breaking up.
Spoilers ahead for All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.
Couldn’t have one teen romance franchise without a love triangle moment, could you Netflix? Now To All The Boys fans have a discussion dividing them in half. Team Peter or Team John Ambrose? Back in 2018, when All The Boys I’ve Loved Before became a big hit, Noah Centineo was all the rage. His curly hair and Mark Ruffalo-esque likability really sparked a fling between the teens of today. But, now Jordan Fisher has debuted his John Ambrose McClaren on Lara Jean and we’re just confused.
The last time we saw her onscreen, she was setting out to find out what’s west of Westeros (answer: the islands of Aegon, Rhaenys and Visenya, then probably nothing until you get to Asshai), but in April, Maisie Williams is heading to the big screen for the long-delayed Marvel movie, The New Mutants. The actress plays the mutant Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane, in Josh Boone’s film. Maisie Williams recently teased the ‘progressive’ story we can expect in The New Mutants, saying:
To be fair, some characters in Birds of Prey felt pretty similar to how they’ve been shown in past projects, such as Harley Quinn, with her story echoing the kind of shenanigans she’s gotten into in her solo books, and Huntress, who carried out the same mission of vengeance she has in the comics. Others, however, deviated from their traditional depictions, especially Cassandra Cain, who, as writer Gail Simone pointed out, doesn’t resemble her comic book counterpart whatsoever.
Take, for instance, Christian Bale’s suit in The Dark Knight. The outfit that his Bruce Wayne acquired in Batman Begins, with help from Morgan Freeman’s Lucius Fox, was designed with a chest piece strong enough to stop a knife, but when its immodest weight proved problematic in combative situations, he opted for a lighter, sleeker, yet more vulnerable Batman suit. Either kind of Batsuit has it advantages and disadvantages.
