Alan Rickman is also quite well known for being a method actor, with other members of the young cast also expressing some intimidation from Severus Snape, including the film’s director, Chris Columbus. Rickman’s Snape has one of the most intriguing arcs in the Harry Potter series. The actor must have been a great mentor and figure to actors like Tom Felton on set, as the Draco star also remarked that working alongside him was a “real privilege.”
Really, It’s All About The Food
It may be called the International Flower and Garden Festival, but that doesn’t mean that flowers are the only things there to enjoy. Like all the great Epcot festivals there are special booths set up all over the park with unique food offerings. Each one has a particular theme to the food, a special ingredient, nation of origin, or style, and offers a couple of small bites and a drink or two, both non-alcoholic specialties are available as are other more adult selections. Now you can not only eat and drink your way around the world, but around the entire park. Epcot has by far the best food of any Walt Disney World park, and now it’s just that much better.
Making the transition from child star to adult actor is a challenge that many have tried and failed, but Zac Efron is certainly an exception. He landed his first acting gig when he was only 15 years old, and was world famous before he turned 20, but key professional choices over the last decade have helped his career endure his maturity. The most important factor in this has been helping fans change their perception of him as a performer, and director Keith Thomas believes that Efron’s next movie, a remake of Stephen King’s Firestarter, will help him evolve in audience’s eyes even further.
Given Robin Wright’s previous roles, in movies like The Princess Bride and Forrest Gump, it’s not a surprise that she was drawn to Wonder Woman’s themes. She clearly has a sense of adventure and isn’t afraid to back down from a challenge, which made her an even more perfect fit for the role. It’s also cool to know that Patty Jenkins knew how to appeal to the actress and get her to see the value in joining the franchise.
Unfinished: A Memoir (Book)
While fans of Priyanka Chopra Jonas wait for this Amazon Prime Video original series inspired by a very important cultural touchstone in her life (among her many other projects), they can also gain ever deeper insight into her life by checking out her recent, best-selling memoir. Released on February 9, 2021, and published by Ballantine Books, Unfinished is a raw and revealing personal account of the actress’ journey to self-discovery from her childhood in India, her time spent in the United States during her teens, and her return to her home country before winning the international beauty pageant that made her a star. The book is funny, bold, shocking, traumatic, and an overall fascinating read that is must for anyone who would consider themself a fan of Chopra Jonas.
As of right now, Lee Daniels still hasn’t ventured into the superhero genre and, while he may be confused as to why he would be sought out for Wolverine, it’s not crazy to think he could helm one of the massive films. Directors who’ve helmed smaller films are indeed capable of tackling larger movies. Marvel Studios, in particular, has proven this notion by tapping indie directors for many of their productions.

We didn’t get to see too many of our favorite actors, musicians, and even wrestlers in 2020 due to everything going on in the world, but the likes of Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Stanley Tucci, John Cena (and more) weren’t just sitting around twiddling their thumbs. In fact, all three of those celebrities and others like them filled up their vacant calendars by writing books. Everything from memoirs to works of fiction and even in-depth examinations of the lyrics of a former Beatle were crafted in recent months.
To save everyone time and energy, we’ve put together a breakdown of just 15 books written by celebrities that are due to be published throughout 2021 (and some that have already been released to bookstores around the globe). There’s a lot to get into here, so let’s get started, shall we…
Now the question is if we’ll reunite with the same three Vanessa Hudgens’ characters we already know, consisting of Princess Stacy, Lady Margaret and Lady Fiona. It would be quite redundant if the threequel introduced yet another double take, but it’s kind of the fun bit of the franchise, no? And Hudgens’ latest character allowed her to play a baddie with a completely different character than the amicable Stacy and Margaret.
There were quite a few [scenes that were more difficult to get right], I mean, some of it is just sort of the end of the film is very epic and big, and we just had to think about how we do all that complexity-wise, but there were areas that were tough to get right, tone-wise. As we developed the character of Namaari and understood the relationship, the interesting deep relationship between her and Raya and how they’re sort of opposites of each other, we really wanted to get that moment that they meet, the childhood scene, right. And we rewrote that I don’t know how many times. Because what you want to evoke, what I certainly felt like I wanted to evoke in that is when you’re like a teenager and you meet another kid who loves the same obscure band, and you’re just like together forever, they’re your best friend, you’ll trust them with anything. That’s what we were looking for. And that was one of the scenes we rewrote a lot.
Who Is Playing Granny Goodness?
The first teaser of Zack Snyder’s Justice League confirmed that New God, Darkseid, is the main villain and would be accompanied by his best known right-hand man, DeSaad. However, the first real trailer for the cut (released Februrary 14, 2021) revealed that this was more than a devious duo, but an unholy trinity completed by Granny Goodness, but only to the most eagle-eyed viewers.
Seriously, you can barely tell that the elderly torture expert is even in the trailer, let alone see her face, and IMDb is no help either as her name and the actress who plays her are listed nowhere in the credits. Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates was previously rumored for the role in Ava DuVernay’s New Gods movie, but the status of that adaptation is a whole different story. Honestly, I think I am OK with staying in the dark on this reveal, considering we already know where (or, more accurately, in whom) to find another favorite DC character.
