Certainly, for many fans, just being able to walk Downtown Disney probably felt like going home again, and there’s nothing wrong with that. At the same time, most of the stores at Downtown Disney can be found elsewhere, so it’s not like there was any particular need for people to go to DTD to get their Starbucks.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a behemoth presence in the film world over the last decade and change of filmmaking. And while the MCU has become a well-oiled machine of hit movies, it hasn’t been without some missteps. The franchise has previously been criticized for largely featuring white men throughout its first two phases. And while Phase Three took some major steps forward in regards to inclusion, Anthony Mackie recently spoke to the need for diversity behind the camera. And now The Russo Brothers have responded to Mackie’s concerns.
In court, Johnny Depp added there was no way the poop in the bed could have ever come from either Pistol or Boo, whom he described as weighing 3-4 pounds, though the lawyers for the other part did speculate on Amber Heard’s story the poop came from the dogs. What’s most interesting about these allegations is that while both parties don’t agree about what happened, what’s absolutely for certain is a short while after Amber Heard turned 30, poop was found in Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s bed. Depp confirmed he laughed about the incident at the time and still finds the whole thing absurd, noting,
The Jurassic Park franchise has been entertaining moviegoers for decades, continuing to push the boundaries of technology, and both visual and practical effects. The dinosaur-centric property returned to theaters with Jurassic World, which has grown into its own bonafide trilogy. Jurassic World: Dominion will wrap up the story, with the threequel starting production back up in the U.K.. Rumors recently made their way around the internet that multiple crew members had already tested positive for COVID-19, but now production is setting the record straight.
At the same time, the park needs to make sure the feline population stays under control. To that end, the park reportedly has a TNR program, which stands for “trap-neuter-return.” The cats are picked up, fixed, and then returned to the park to do their thing. They’re also given vaccinations against disease. This program was originally handled by an outside company but since 2007 Disney has been handling it internally. Kittens that are born inside the park are picked up and given homes. There are five feeding stations around the park for the felines, as well as shelters to give them a place to sleep.
Rambo has been an interesting franchise over the years. First Blood, saw Sylvester Stallone in a film that, while it wasn’t light on action, was much more focused on the character drama of a man suffering from PTSD. The sequels, however, have been unapologetic action movies. First Blood Part II actually has Rambo basically go back and refight the Vietnam War (and win). The latter two Rambo films, Last Blood included, have also gone hard on the visceral violence. I can only imagine how bloody the Extended Cut of Last Blood is considering the theatrical cut was not shy in that regard.
There’s a lot of moving pieces that need to fall into place with Alita: Battle Angel’s prospects for the future, and Emma Watts’ hiring at Paramount could be the key to pushing things along at a new, more interested home. Should this be the case, there’s hope for not only reviving Alita: Fallen Angel, but also The Mouse Guard or any other discarded properties in previous development at Fox. Ultimately, the fans will need to make their voices heard, and the powers that be will have to have some meetings to discuss those wishes. It doesn’t seem impossible, as Alita: Battle Angel was made in the first place, and that feels pretty spectacular in and of itself.
While montages are commonplace in feature films, found in the majority of releases, they have a special significance in time loop stories. Why? Because as soon as a character is shown in a montage reliving multiple days in a short blast to move the plot along, all concept of chronological time is thrown out the window. The audience no longer knows if they have witnessed all of a protagonist’s time in the loop, or if all that’s shown is bits and pieces.
At the end of the day, the only people that really know how long characters spend time looping are the filmmakers and the actors – and the new comedy Palm Springs is no exception. As such, I felt compelled to ask about it when I had the opportunity to talk to the film’s stars, Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti, during the movie’s virtual press day last month:
When it comes to the Star Wars films, there’s an unbelievable amount of thought that goes into production, from the design of each of the unique planets and details on the droids, to which hairstyle Luke Skywalker is going to don after thirty years away from audiences. Ahead of his brief return in 2015’s Force Awakens, Mark Hamill almost donned a bun for his comeback. Take a look:
For over a decade, Kumail Nanjiani has been steadily rising in the Hollywood ranks. But, you know the comedian has come a long way from his stand up days, because he’s going to be in a Marvel movie next year. Does it get any bigger than that? Audiences will get to see the Silicon Valley star suit up with Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry and Richard Madden for The Eternals. As Nanjiani recently said, though, he had to put a lot of thought into what the first Pakistani superhero would look like on the big screen. In his words:
