Fans are loving this new feud-like interaction, but people seem to be in agreement in the comments of Hugh Jackman’s post that someone else would be a better fit to take up the reigns as James Bond. One commenter even brings up a name that has not been big on the Bond radar, Lucifer star Tom Ellis. The actor would be pretty perfect as 007, as he pretty much already looks the part in Netflix’s Lucifer – accent and tux at the ready.
Adapting stage musicals to fit into a film’s length of time usually results in a number of songs and scenes being cut. Dear Evan Hansen was no exception in this regard, with Stephen Chbosky and company making changes to the story for a unique take on film. I had the privilege of speaking with Ben Platt ahead of the movie’s release, where I asked him which cut aspect of the stage musical he missed the most this time around. But rather than a cut song like “Anybody Have a Map?” it was a piece of dialogue. As he explained,
Almost exactly a year ago, Enola Holmes hit Netflix and dazzled fans of mystery with a fresh twist on the Sherlock Holmes story, with the detective’s younger sister solving a conundrum of her own. Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown starred as Enola, a quirky and clever young girl with an eye for observing and Justice League’s Henry Cavill played the world’s greatest detective and a lot of people loved it. The movie is now getting a sequel, and there will in fact be a number of welcome familiar faces.
It’s fitting that Winston Duke references a silverback gorilla in the above post considering that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Jabari Tribe worships the gorilla god Hanuman. More importantly, that ripped back is impressive, and while that alone doesn’t provide any clues about what to expect from M’Baku in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, at least we can take comfort knowing he’ll still be boasting a warrior’s physicality. Really though, what will it take for everyone to try to make ‘M’Backu’ a thing? What’s that? You want me to leave it alone? Ok, moving on.
It’s been a long time coming, longer than many Bond fans expected, but finally we can say the time has come for No Time To Die to reach its excited audience. Ahead of the 007 film hitting UK cinemas and internationally this weekend before expanding to the U.S. in early October, Daniel Craig, the cast of the movie and the theme songstress Billie Eilish have arrived at the London premiere for the film.
You might still be able to catch Free Guy in theaters, should you feel like heading out to the movies. Or, you can rent or purchase Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer’s action-comedy wherever you enjoy your digital media. Those of you holding out for the physical media will have to wait until October 12th, as the movie will then be available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
Joel Coen Is Making This Movie Without His Filmmaking Partner And Brother
Going back to their 1984 feature-length film debut Blood Simple, Joel and Ethan Coen, known together as the Coen brothers, have written and directed some of the most important films of all time including Fargo, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and No Country For Old Men. And even though Ethan Coen wasn’t credited as a director on some of those movies, he has very much been part of the process. That all changes with The Tragedy of Macbeth.
Upon reading about the movie, you might find it strange to only see Joel Coen’s name listed as the writer and director for The Tragedy of Macbeth, but that will be the case this time around. During a 2020 interview with Collider, composer Carter Burwell (who composed many of Coen’s movies including his latest) discussed working with Joel Coen on his own when they were first talking about this film. And even though things will “be a little different,” Burwell said he thinks the movie will have that familiar Coen voice.
But according to Dave Bautista, it was all good. They actually laughed about the incident, and once Bautista changed clothes and the bleeding stopped, they went back to filming their fight scene, which was an absolutely fantastic fight scene. Spectre may have its issues as a movie, but that sequence is not one of them.
Even though she isn’t surrounded by friends in person, she does have a ton of well-wishers throwing love her way. On her Instagram story Gwyneth Paltrow shows off all the people who are sending her birthday wishes, and there are a couple stand out names who recognized Paltrow on her birthday. Reese Witherspoon is one such celebrity, as she posted a photo of Paltrow and tagged her after giving the “brilliant woman” a big happy birthday. You can check out her tribute below:
It should be interesting to see what other talent joins John Logan’s upcoming movie at Blumhouse. Obviously Carrie Preston is experienced with horror, as does the incomparable Kevin Bacon. He famously appeared in the original Friday the 13th, and also appears in other iconic additions to the genre like Stir of Echoes and most recently You Should Have Left. And with Bacon also serving as a producer for the upcoming movie, one has to wonder if this will be the start of a continued collaboration with Blumhouse. We can only hope.
