Over the years, Vin Diesel has lent his talents to franchises like xXx and The Chronicles Of Riddick, where he has been a badass all over the world, the galaxy, and beyond. And between roles like Xander Cage and Richard B. Riddick, Diesel has shown up in everything from World War II epics to intimate stories about people trying to make it in the world. The man can do it all.
This article contains spoilers from the movies mentioned in this list. Read on with caution!
Land Of The Dead (2005)
If we’re looking specifically at post-apocalyptic scenarios, the fourth entry in George A. Romero’s Dead saga, Land Of The Dead is probably the best representation of humanity after society has come crumbling down. With a cast that includes Simon Baker, John Leguizamo, Dennis Hopper, and Asia Argento, Land Of The Dead is just as violent and thoughtful as the previous entries in the saga. Set years after the dead first began to rise from their graves and eat their victims, this 2005 zombie flick argues that just because you’re rich and powerful, it doesn’t mean you can shield yourself from what’s happening outside your door, or walls in this case.

These past few decades, we’ve seen many talented, respected actors take on the famous role of The Joker in several different interpretations of the iconic character. Whether it’s Jack Nicholson’s memorable version from Tim Burton’s Batman, or Mark Hamill’s long-standing voice-only version of the Clown Prince of Crime, the late, great Heath Ledger’s incredibly disturbing Oscar-winning performance as the legendary Dark Knight foe, or, recently, Joaquin Phoenix’s outstanding Oscar-winning take on the title character in Joker, we’ve seen several acclaimed actors crush it in this part.
Though not everyone did the villainous role justice (looking at you, Jared Leto), almost every actor who adopted this challenge did wonderful work. And there’s a good chance that we’ll see another actor or 12 pick up the torch in the future. But who should be next? Here are six performers who’d be great Jokers.
A Quiet Place: Part II
Original Release Date: March 20th
Originally set to come out on March 20th, John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II was the first major movie to bump up against the COVID-19 pandemic. The release date was originally planned to mirror the first A Quiet Place, which came out in March 2018, but clearly that’s not happening anymore. Unlike some of the other films on this list, however, one advantage that it holds on to is the fact that it’s completely finished, meaning that it can basically come out whenever it’s possible for films to start coming out again. This in mind, it’s likely that what was once a winter release is going to hit theaters in summer, as in early July – and the horror feature might even end up earning more money than it would have on its previous timeline.
Bruno Oliver, it seems, also does not want to screw us over. Because as part of the interview, he took the time to illustrate how to recreate the sandwich in our own kitchens. That means we can all have at least one halfway decent quarantine meal — that is, if we can find all of the ingredients.
The campaign’s original goal was to reach £200,000, but it’s since reached over £440,000 and is well on its way to £500,000. Dr. Salaj Masand, one of the doctors spearheading the campaign is overjoyed at the progress he and his team have made. While speaking to the trade, he had this to say:
Interestingly, Snyder revealed that Superman’s final scream would be heard around the universe, including the galaxy and worlds beyond. As a result, he would ultimately wake up the dormant Mother Boxes. These devices, of course, played a crucial role in 2017’s Justice League, and this was also meant to be the case in Snyder’s original version.
20. The Final Destination: Samantha Lane – Rock through the head shot by lawnmower
The false leads in the Final Destination franchise are a treat, mostly because it causes audiences to try and outthink the movie and predict how all of the pieces are going to fall into place. In this regard, Samantha Lane’s exit from the mortal coil is a delight, as just so many things go wrong during her salon appointment – from the broken chair, to the body butter squirted on the floor, to the hairspray sliding towards the flat iron. At the end of it all, though, the end death is rather simple, finding the rock thrown by Samantha’s son prior to entering the salon caught up in a lawnmower and launched right through her eye.
Lady Bird’s biggest strength is the performances by Saorise Ronan and Laurie Metcalf. They both make you frustrated and sympathetic towards their behavior. Despite their fighting, like many mother and teen daughter relationships, both clearly do love and appreciate each other underneath all the disagreements. It’s not easy growing up, and it’s even harder being an adult.

COVID-19 has completely changed the way the film industry will operate in 2020, and perhaps beyond. Some of the biggest film releases of the year, including No Time To Die, Mulan, and Black Widow, have been pushed back. Some movies have hit VOD early, after spending a scant few weeks in theaters. Other films’ releases have been shifted entirely to streaming platforms, meaning they may never see a theatrical release.
