Hedy Lamarr – TBD
Gal Gadot is arguably one of the most beautiful faces in Hollywood today, and so it should come as no surprise that she will be portraying classic beauty Hedy Lamarr in a Apple TV+ limited series about the actress’ life and career. According to IndieWire, Gadot will be playing the “most beautiful woman in the world” in the series that will span 30 years of her career and will take audiences on a journey that will see Lamarr’s escape from pre-war Vienna, rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood, and her fall from grace in the early days of the Cold War.
The series, which is being called Hedy Lamarr, was first announced in 2018 as a Showtime original, but Apple TV+ picked it up as the streaming platform was beefing up its list of shows and movies. No release date has been announced at this point.
Some filmmakers find their stride with their second movie. For writer/director Quentin Tarantino, he cemented his legacy. Pulp Fiction is Tarantino’s career-defining film. Hot off the success of Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino not only proved himself to be the real deal, but he earned his status as one of the greatest filmmakers of the late 20th century. His Palme d’Or winning triumph is arguably his finest masterpiece, reviving John Travolta’s career while also turning Uma Thurman and Samuel L. Jackson into major superstars.
Tarantino may never top himself when it comes to Pulp Fiction, but when you make a movie this good, who needs any extra valor? It’s a movie that shaped cinema — especially indie cinema — for decades, and we’ll still feel its impact reverberate for years to come. So, yeah, Pulp Fiction is a pretty big deal. If you love this highly-influential film, here are some interesting behind-the-scenes facts worth knowing.
It’s far from uncommon for actors to end up using boxes or other objects in scenes, but frequently, it’s because they’re trying to make one actor not appear too short. It’s potentially important when it comes to framing the shot as well as useful to making your action hero look taller, and therefore more menacing. However, in Kong: Skull Island the movie wanted Samuel L. Jackson to look bigger than he was, but Jackson decided he needed to look even bigger than that.
Well, there you have it. It looks like Sean Gunn is hoping for some real Kraglin growth in Guardians fo the Galaxy Vol. 3. And in addition to gaining proper control over Yondu’s signature arrow, he’s also hoping the character has more control over his own personal path. And without his leader/friend with him, Yondu is seemingly going to have to grow up fast for the threequel.
Marvel fans can re-watch Sean Gunn’s tenure in the MCU on Disney+. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.
The track itself was basically complete, if you were wandering through the park, it was hard to miss, and yet, for months now Universal has just pretended like the thing wasn’t there. However, that all changed yesterday with the first official announcement of the Jurassic World Velocicoaster. With the utter lack of official announcements before now, it was anybody’s guess what this ride would be like, and while we’ll have to wait until next summer to know for sure, the teaser video is sure to have a lot of people very excited. Check it out.
Willow Smith, a performer in her own right, often joins Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” to discuss personal feelings and experiences. This week, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself back to the table to talk about going public about the August Alsina entanglement, calling it a “total breakdown of any mask.” Willow Smith also wanted to share her own thoughts about how her mother responded, noting,
Of course, this type of power is known to corrupt. From the trailer for The Craft: Legacy, it seems that Lily’s power begins growing at an alarming rate. We see as she lashes out against people at school and home, eventually concerning the rest of the coven. This is an interesting departure from the original movie, which saw Nancy and her friends go to the dark side with new girl Sarah coming to the rescue.
As of right now, a release date for the film has not been announced, but Deadline states that the film is a priority for the studio following the success of the original. Favreau’s film earned $1.6 billion globally at the box office. With this in mind, one can understand the desire to put out a follow-up as soon as possible.
In addition to his iconic role as T’Challa in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chadwick Boseman also starred in a ton of other notable projects, all will privately battling colon cancer. Some of those roles include 42, Marshall, Get On Up, all of which showed him fully immersing himself to transform into a figure from history.
The reviews for the new Netflix film, Enola Holmes, which focuses on a previously unknown member of the Holmes family, are pretty solid. By all accounts, including my own, it’s a fun little movie that most will probably enjoy watching. However, I’m not sure anybody is going to have quite as much fun watching it as the cast apparently had making it. A new blooper reel has been dropped online by co-star Henry Cavill that shows that there was much laughter on the set.
