Universal’s Monsters Are Getting Another New Movie, But Not One We Were Expecting

It’s especially exciting how experimental Universal is getting with its plans for monster films, and I’d imagine it’s stretching itself across multiple genres and types of filmmakers can only help the studio succeed, following scrapped plans to build an extended Dark Universe with interconnected characters after the highly disappointing reception of The Mummy remake, starring Tom Cruise, in 2017.

Daveed Diggs Admits He’s Uncomfortable Singing In Hamilton And What Helped Him Get Through

One of the most lasting presences among the talented original Hamilton cast is Daveed Diggs, who has since moved on to work in movies such as Blindspotting, and his new television series based on Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer on TNT. During his time in the Broadway phenomenon, he played two characters (Marquis de Lafayette in the first act and Thomas Jefferson in the second) and, apparently, at one time he was self conscious about spewing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s lyrics on stage.

Snyder Cut: Justice League’s J.K. Simmons Is Ready For Reshoots If Zack Snyder Calls

Luckily, the things that HBO Max were willing to foot the bill for are no small potatoes, and Snyder has been promising to bring us a lot of the things which were missing from the original theatrical cut of Justice League, and which fans have been clamoring for, for so long now. This is said to include Superman fighting in his black regeneration suit, a lot more backstory for Cyborg (plus more for the Flash to do on screen), some Darkseid, and (wouldn’t you know it) more of the secondary characters. So, this could mean that we will get to see more than the quick snippet of J.K. Simmons as Gordon.

10 Times Tom Hanks Freaked Out On Screen And It Was Perfect

Cast Away – Chuck Cuts His Hand And Creates Wilson

Two Oscars and the several other high profile roles didn’t stop Tom Hanks from bringing his sense of comedic (or tragic) timing in the 2001 epic Cast Away which saw him playing FedEx analyst Chuck Noland who gets stuck on a deserted island in the middle of the Pacific. Going in, you know there’s going to be a moment where Chuck loses all touch with reality (and sanity), and that moment comes when he slices his hand open and inadvertently creates Wilson. After cutting his hand, Chuck kicks water-logged FeEx boxes, grabs the volleyball, and yells to the heavens like a madman. There are other freak-outs here, but nothing comes close to this one.

Honorable Mention: Chuck creates fire.

Epic Avengers: Infinity War Behind The Scenes Video Shows How One Scarlet Witch Fight Came Together

When we’re first reintroduced to Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Infinity War, she’s on the run with her beloved Vision (Paul Bettany), hiding out in Scotland of all places. As their storyline across the two-part juggernaut that reunited Earth’s mightiest heroes looks like it’s going to be a little more on the romantic side of things, Thanos’ Black Order invades their privacy and proceeds to engage in some fisticuffs with the pair of lovers. And, as we can see in a recent video that’s been discovered on the internet, that fight took quite a bit of stunt work to come together.

Tenet Star Reveals The Unique Way Christopher Nolan Works

Of course, this is the type of thing one would expect from a director who’s employing tons of CGI in their films, but Nolan has a particular affinity for using practical effects whenever possible, so I can imagine that one of the things Elizabeth Debicki is talking about probably has to do with the director making sure scenes are designed in a way, and locations are chosen and set up in a way, that makes such practical effects easier. I mean, the man blew up a real 747 airplane for Tenet, so he’s not afraid to put that budget on the big screen.

Palm Springs Had Crazy Ideas For Andy Samberg’s Character The Hulu Film Just Couldn’t Afford

As it stands, Palm Springs makes the most of its single location. Yes, Nyles wakes up every day at a desert resort. But he’s also forced to endure a wedding reception (for which he was meant to be a guest), and he spends his time messing with other characters, romancing Sarah, and… well, let’s just say “avoiding” the character played by J.K. Simmons.

Chris Hemsworth’s Hulk Hogan Movie: 5 Things I Really Hope We See In This Film

The Rise Of Hulkamania Better Be Told Through A Montage

If the Hulk Hogan movie focuses on the rise of Hulkamania in 1984, then I really, really, really hope that a lot of what leads to the first WrestleMania is told through the hallmark of any great ’80s movie: the montage. Just imagine about halfway through the movie when Hogan returns to WWF and finds himself selling out arena after arena, appearing on late-night talk shows, recording an album, and just being the superstar that he was at the time all told through a montage.

Greyhound Ending: What Happened At The End Of The Tom Hanks Movie, And What It Means

Warning: spoilers for Greyhound are in the water. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, turn around and come back once you’ve experienced it for yourself.

This weekend sees Tom Hanks headed into another perilous adventure based on a true story, as Greyhound makes its debut on Apple TV+. However, if you’re a Hanks fan, or a World War II history nut, you probably already knew this. In which case, you’re here to read more about what exactly Greyhound’s ending entails, as the film is a little vague about where it leaves Hanks’ Captain Ernest Krause. As it turns out, the finale to the film actually takes on a bit of a different meaning when you really look at it.
