Florence Pugh Is A Master Of Hiding Her English Accent
You might not know it from her more high-profile characters, but Florence Pugh is actually a Brit. With the exception of her recent roles in Fighting with My Family, Outlaw King, Lady MacBeth, and the BBC-produced miniseries The Little Drummer Girl, the actress, born January 3, 1996, in Oxfordshire, England, is best known for playing an American in Midsommar and Little Women and even as a Russian assassin in Marvel’s upcoming Black Widow solo movie.
Zack Snyder’s daughter committed suicide while the director was working on post-production of Justice League, forcing him to step back from the film, making it not just a worthy, but a fitting, cause for the Snyder Cut fans to get behind. There’s no reason to believe they’re anywhere close to done raising money either. Somehow, the Snyder Cut movement is at least as strong now as it was at the beginning, and it shows no sign of fading away. As long as there are people calling to “Release the Snyder Cut” they will likely continue the charity campaign as well, as a way of raising awareness of both the charity cause, and their own.
The Batman is finally gearing up for production, with the actors all getting into the right shape and appearance for their respective comic book roles. For instance, Zoe Kravitz cut her hair into Selina Kyle’s signature pixie cut. Photos of Colin Farrell with silver hair recently arrived on the internet, which made DC fans think he was rocking those locks to play Oswald Cobblepot. But he recently shut down those rumors, while rocking his regular brown locks. As Farrell put it,
Security on big blockbusters is notoriously tight, as the filmmakers and crew attempt to keep secrets and plot points until the theatrical release. This applies to Star Wars, superhero movies, and of course the James Bond franchise. Rami Malek’s role as Safin has been largely kept under wraps, with only a few brief appearances in the upcoming blockbuster’s trailers. While promoting No Time to Die‘s upcoming release, Malek seemed to put his character’s identity into question, saying:
waiting in lines at theme parks comes with the territory, but theme parks also know that doing so is the least fun part of any vacation. As such, many have tried to implement systems that cuts down on the standing around. At Walt Disney World, the FastPass+ system allows you to book a limited number of rides in advance where you’ll be able to skip past most of the queue, however, the newest, and most popular rides in the park, the ones at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, have not used the FastPass+ system since they opened, However, today Disney revealed that the first Galaxy’s Edge attraction, Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, will begin to use FastPass+ on February 19.
This means that if you already have a Walt Disney World vacation booked for February 19 or after, you can book your FastPasses right now. If you happen to have the trip scheduled right at the beginning of the time frame, you even have something of an extra jump. Normally, guests staying at Walt Disney World resort hotels can book their FastPasses 60 days before their vacation, while those staying off property can only book 30 days out. This frequently means that high demand attractions like Flight of Passage end up giving out all the FastPasses to those staying on property, and those who are not are out of luck. But in this case hotel guests aren’t getting the extra jump, at least not for the first couple days.
FastPass+ works on a two tier system at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is a Tier A attraction as is the Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster in Toy Story Land. This means that when selecting their three FastPasses of the day in advance, guests can only choose one ride or the other. The other two FastPasses of the day can come from the Tier B attractions, which covers everything else in the park that uses the system.
While Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opened at Walt Disney World after the version at Disneyland, the park has been seeing advancements in the land first. It got Rise of the Resistance first, and now its seeing the FastPass addition first, as Disneyland’s Smuggler’s Run still has not been put on the FastPass system there.
Several years ago, three more Fast and Furious film were conformed, that will bring the franchise to the nice round number of 10. With the ninth film in the bag, there’s just one more Fast and Furious film confirmed, although, additional spinoffs are always possible, and if everybody involved is still interested and the fans keep coming back, the possibility for even more in the main series is always there.
When one Star Wars fan asked Gary Witta if there were ever any Return of the Jedi references that never made it in Rogue One, he had a massive one to share. As he states, Admiral Ackbar was going to have a significant role in the climax of the anthology film. He was going to lead the orbital attack! But J.J. Abrams nabbed the character first for The Force Awakens and apparently they couldn’t share.
Last year, Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers’ Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, joined the franchise’s billion dollar club, and at last summer San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed a sequel was in development. We hadn’t heard much about the project since then, but half a year later, word’s come in that Captain Marvel 2 is indeed moving forward, and it already has some talent attached.
According to Deadline, Matt Damon will play Denny Malone in the upcoming re-team-up with James Mangold. In the book, Denny becomes involved in a major corruption scandal involving Harlem drug gangs, mobsters, dirty cops and federal investigators. The detective is offered a deal to testify against his team in order to save his own skin.
Jungle 2 Jungle
Jungle 2 Jungle is one of those movies that feels like it’s made up. A man travels to Venezuela to divorce his first wife, only to learn she had a son shortly after their separation who has been raised within the native Amazon tribe she’s living with. The boy is encouraged to go to New York City, retrieve fire from the Statue of Liberty and return home as a tribe leader. Tim Allen’s character, who only just met his son, agrees to take him to New York for an adventure that, against all odds, works out for the better. Trying to explain this movie makes it even weirder, though one could watch through without thinking and potentially not be alerted by the weirdness.
