11 Attractions That Are Better At Walt Disney World Than Disneyland

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

There’s something of a polite rivalry between fans of Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Depending on which coast you’re on, or at least closest to, there’s a knee-jerk response to the question of which theme park is better. While it’s mostly impossible to compare Disneyland and Walt Disney World, the latter park is simply so much larger than the Disneyland Resort that any true comparison is near impossible, but on a per attraction basis, that comparison is a little easier to me.

Previously, we looked at 10 attractions that you can find at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World that are superior at the original Disney theme park. However, there are a lot more attractions that the two resorts share, and just as many, or technically slightly more, that are a much better experience at Walt Disney World. Here they are…

Splash Moountain

Splash Mountain

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Found in Disneyland’s Critter Country, the most fascinating thing about Splash Mountain is that the attraction is based on Song of the South, a Disney movie that the company actually wishes everybody would forget ever existed. However, while Uncle Remus is nowhere to be found, Splash Mountain does bring back the animated characters of the film, like Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear, in a classic log flume ride Guests float In single-seat logs through a story that sees Brer Rabbit decides to leave his home in the Brier Patch, though doing so causes him to run afoul of Brer Fox and Brer Bear. He is very nearly captured and eaten before he convinces them to throw him back in the Brier Patch as guests fall down a 50-foot drop.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: While the basic structure of Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World is the same, a lot of details are different. Splash Mountain can be found here in Frontierland as there is no Critter Country. In addition, the log ride vehicles are two-seaters as opposed to be single seaters found at Disneyland. The story that you go through here is pretty much the same as the Disneyland version. However, the ride itself is longer ,which means this version of the attraction simply gives you more of that story with more characters.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: Sometimes bigger is truly better. The Walt Disney World version of the attraction just has a lot more to offer than Disneyland. In addition to the one massive drop that each ride has, the Walt Disney World version has four smaller drops whereas Disneyland only has two. Disney World also has more, and better, animatronics. Many of the animatronics used at Disneyland were recycled from an earlier attraction called America Sings, while at Walt Disney World most of the animatronics were made for this ride so they are of a little bit newer vintage.

Astro Orbiter

Astro Orbiters

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: if you find yourself in the hub of Disneyland’s Main Street USA and you head toward Tomorrowland, the first thing you see is Astro Orbiters. It’s right there at the entrance to the land. The ride itself is a simple one, very similar to Dumbo’s Flying Elephants. You simply board a ride vehicle get pulled up in the air and get to fly around in a circle. You have simple control to raise and lower the ride vehicle a little bit, and after a couple minutes, you are lowered back to the ground on the ride is over.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: Astro Orbiter is ultimately the exact same ride at Walt Disney World and nearly everything about it is the same. It’s located in Tomorrowland just like at Disneyland. However here, the ride is not found at the front of the land, but somewhere more towards the middle. In fact, you have to go up a small staircase to get to it because the ride is located on the roof of another building.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: Location makes all the difference. Because Astro Orbiter is just in the middle of Tomorrowland and because it’s on top of a building, you are flying through the air that much higher than you are at Disneyland. This makes the otherwise basic ride a bit more thrilling and also opens up the view. There’s simply a lot more to see. The entrance to Tomorrowland at Disneyland is currently undergoing renovations, which might open things up a bit and allow riders to see a bit more there, but currently the bottlenecked entrance to Tomorrowland limits how much you can see while you are flying through the air.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh can be found in Disneyland in Critter Country, alongside Splash Mountain. The attraction replaced the Country Bear Jamboree with a simple dark ride that takes you through familiar stories from Disney’s Winnie the Pooh movie. The queue is located entirely outdoors, which is nice on pleasant days, though certainly when it gets hot it can get a little uncomfortable. It’s a fairly simple ride as things go, but if you are somebody who was ever mildly disturbed by Winnie the Pooh’s Heffalumps and Woozles, then there is certainly excitement of this ride that might give you the creeps.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: The actual ride is essentially identical at Walt Disney World when compared to Disneyland. So, like many other attractions, the differences come before you actually get on the ride. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at Walt Disney World is located in Fantasyland alongside many of the park’s other simple storybook dark rides. The queue here is also indoors as are many in Florida because it rains so much more often. However, this indoor situation gives the attraction the ability to theme itself a little more with pages from Winnie the Pooh story books on the walls and even some interactive screens that can keep people entertained while they’re waiting for the ride.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: The queue at Walt Disney World gets you in the mood for the ride a little bit better than it does at Disneyland. Also, the location can’t be overlooked. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh just makes more sense existing in Fantasyland than it does at Critter Country. Fantasyland is the place where you want rides like this, which makes the experience more enjoyable. Also, as an added bonus, the Walt Disney World version of the attraction includes a couple of easter eggs referencing Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, the much beloved attraction that it replaced.

Toy Story Mania

Toy Story Mania

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Toy Story Mania is a combination of an attraction and game as it combines 3D screens with an interactive ride vehicles that are taken through a variety of different scenes where they can use pop gun-style devices attached to the ride vehicle to shoot darts at balloons or throw baseballs at plates or toss rings in Toy Story-themed carnival games. The ride can be found at the Pixar Pier area of Disney’s California Adventure in Disneyland Resort, the highlight of the queue is a massive Mr. Potato Head animatronic voiced by the late Don Rickles who is actually capable of interacting with the quests in line to some degree.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: Toy Story Mania can be found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. The attraction saw a bit of a retrofit and overhaul to the show as part of the building of Toy Story Land. The entrance to the ride was actually shifted so that you can now enter it from the new land. The attraction itself is identical to the one at Disneyland. The biggest difference is in the mechanics whereas Disneyland attraction has only a single track, Walt Disney World has multiple tracks, so the attraction can handle a lot more people in a shorter amount of time.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: Once again, when the ride is the same, the queue makes a difference. Walt Disney World’s indoor queue has a lot more theming, which is a big deal. As you walk through the line, you are surrounded by giant sized versions of classic toys making you feel like you are the size of a toy which is kind of the idea, since the ride itself is supposed to be a “play set.” There’s a little bit of this at Disneyland, but because the queue is mostly outdoors, there just isn’t nearly as much on it. Toy Story Mania fits a lot better in the Paradise/Pixar Pier area in California than the ride did when it was simply located inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but inside the new Toy Story Land where the entire land is designed to make you feel like you’re the size of a toy, even the location is superior at Walt Disney World.

Peter Pan's flight

Peter Pan’s Flight

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Peter Pan’s flight is one of the single most popular attractions you will find at Disneyland. It’s the one part of Fantasyland that always has a significant line because the ride, while simple, significantly improves on the standard Fantasyland dark ride experience. Rather than sitting inside a car that is pulled around the floor on a track, the pirate ship design ride vehicles here are pulled on a track overhead so the pirate ship actually flies through the air. Much of the actual scenery to view while on the attraction is below you showing off some impressive miniature work. Beyond that, the ride takes you through the story of Disney’s Peter Pan we all know it pretty well.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: Structurally speaking, Peter Pan’s flight is identical at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. However there are a handful of minor differences. There is a cool element in queue here where you can watch Tinkerbell fly around the bedroom of the Darling children and there are other interactive elements as well. The ride itself is largely the same at both parks. Although, the Disney World version is a bit longer.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: This one is really close, as the rides are so similar. Many of the show scenes simply have a different art style between the two parks, and various people may feel differently about which is better. But the fact that Walt Disney World’s attraction is longer, and therefore can take a slower pace so you can soak in everything, makes it the better attraction.

Star Tours

Star Tours

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: While Star Wars is now a huge part of Disney Parks thanks to the opening of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, before any of that, we had Star Tours. The attraction is a motion simulator experience that sees guest take on the role of intergalactic tourists who are looking for a pleasant vacation experience checking out various points in the Star Wars galaxy. The queue takes you past C-3PO and R2-D2 working on ships, as well as various droids doing the Star Wars equivalent of standard airport security, like x-raying luggage as well as the passengers themselves. Once on board your craft, a confused and lost C-3PO becomes your pilot and you are taken through a variety of different Star Wars experiences from all three trilogies. The attraction is randomized so you will only get a few select pieces from a variety of options making the re-rideability of the attraction very high.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: Star Tours in Florida is found at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. While the exterior of the Disneyland version of the attraction simply looks like the rest of Tomorrowland, at Walt Disney World the entrance is located in a small forest resembling part of Endor, a holdover from when that was the location you were supposed to be visiting to in the earlier version of Star Tours. The space includes a small Ewok settlement and a massive AT-AT Walker as well.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: It seems almost silly to give Walt Disney World the win here based on the first part of the entrance queue, but it’s really the only significant difference between the two attractions, and there’s really no argument that the Hollywood Studios version isn’t better.

Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Dumbo The Flying Elephant

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Dumbo the Flying Elephant wasn’t technically speaking a day one attraction in 1955, but that was only because the ride wasn’t quite ready. It opened shortly thereafter and has been a staple of Disney Parks ever since. Just board the flying elephants and the attraction pulls them up into the sky and you get a circle view of Fantasyland as you go around and around with some basic ability to move your ride vehicle up and down.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: For a long time the Walt Disney World version was literally identical to the Disneyland attraction. It was practically located in the exact same spot in Fantasyland. However, when Walt Disney World’s Fantasyland received a major renovation, things changed significantly for Dumbo the flying elephant. The ride was moved to to a new corner of Fantasyland called The Storybook Circus and the ride was also doubled, as there are two separate rides that guests can take.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: Considering that Dumbo the flying elephant in the movie was a circus performer, the circus environment for the attraction makes a lot of sense, and the fact that the iconic ride can handle twice as many guests as the Disneyland version make the Disney World one better overall.

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: What used to be the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disneyland is now Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout. The structure of the ride is ultimately the same as it was, but of course the attraction itself is completely different. Guests find themselves visiting the collection of The Collector, Benicio del Toro’s character from the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Upon entering to The Collector’s private office, they are met by, of all people, Rocket, who tells the guests he needs their help to break out the rest of the Guardians who have all been captured. Guests make their way to the gantry list where they assist Rocket in breaking the security of the Collector’s fortress, causing the ride vehicle to shoot up in the air and fall down and high-speed. In between the falls guests view video screens which show the Guardians of the Galaxy escaping, all to the ’70s pop soundtrack we associate with the characters.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: In Florida, the classic Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is still available. Upon entering the Hollywood Tower Hotel, guests view a short video clip where a Rod Serling sound-alike tells the story of the hotel and the maintenance service elevator that can transport you to another world. Upon boarding the elevator guests are taken through the hotel before experiencing the same drop ride experience as can be found at Disneyland.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: It’s a bit more difficult to compare these two rides now because they’re so different but, while the Guardians experience is the newer of two, there’s something to be said for the classic Twilight Zone experience. It fits the spooky hotel and drop ride experience a bit better. Even if we were still comparing the original Disneyland version of the attraction, Walt Disney World Is still the superior one, because all Disneyland’s has is the drop ride portion of the attraction, while Walt Disney World has a bit more story building up to the climax.

Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Jungle Cruise was an opening-day attraction at Disneyland in 1955 and it is still incredibly popular experience today. Upon boarding your boat, you are taken by your personal skipper on a tour of the rivers of the world. Specifically, you are taking down famous rivers in Africa and Asia. You float by various scenes where you are surrounded by different animatronic animals as humans, all while your boat skipper tells some of the best terrible jokes you ever heard.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: The Jungle Cruise made the leap to Walt Disney World as soon as it opened in 1971, though the ride did undergo a few changes. Like everything else at Walt Disney World, the attraction is much larger, and includes a significant sequence in a sunken temple that you won’t find in California.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: The addition of the temple in Jungle Cruise makes the Walt Disney World version ever so slightly better than what you can find at Disneyland. It’s a minor difference, to be sure, but when you’re dealing with a classic attraction any little bit helps. It will be interesting to see if the forthcoming movie results in any significant changes to either version of the ride that might change this opinion.

Journey of the Little Mermaid

Journey of the Little Mermaid

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, as it is called at Disney California Adventure, is your standard storybook dark ride as found in many Disney parks. You board a seashell on an omni-mover track and you are taken through a telling of the Disney version of The Little Mermaid. There’s a very cool “Under the Sea sequence with dozens of dancing animatronic fish, and a huge Ursula as well.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: The ride called Journey of The Little Mermaid is the same ride at Walt Disney World,though it can be found as part of Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. Once again, because we’re simply dealing with a ride that tells the story of the movie, the attraction is largely the same.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: Once again, it’s all about the queue and the theming. Disneyland’s queue is about as bare bones as you can get. It’s easy to walk past the attraction and not even notice it because little is done on the outside of the building to tell you there’s even anything there. Walt Disney World’s queue is incredibly elaborate. You’ll find waterfalls and castle walls and ships with Ariel figureheads built into the mast. Everything about this queue is designs take you to the world of The Little Mermaid the Disneyland version simply doesn’t do that.

The Haunted mansion

Haunted Mansion

What The Ride Is Like At Disneyland: Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion is located in the part of the park known as New Orleans Square, so the house is designed to look like a southern mansion that has fallen on somewhat hard times. Upon entering the mansion, you find yourself in a room with no windows and no doors that appears to be stretching. You can walk down a narrow corridor where busts appear to be following you and you enter your “doom buggy” for a trip through the mansion and various spooky scenes, including a head that speaks to you from within a crystal ball and a party where ghosts are dancing. Even 50 years later, this is still one of the greatest attractions in the history of a Disney theme park.

What The Ride Is Like At Walt Disney World: Located in Liberty Square at Walt Disney World, Haunted Mansion is done in a more Gothic style to better fit its location. This version of the attraction forgoes the section where you must walk to your doom buggy and puts you on board the ride vehicle almost immediately. Therefore, many aspects you walk past at Disneyland you ride past at Walt Disney World. Most of the haunted scenes you see here are identical to the ones at Disneyland. However, there are a couple of scenes like an M.C. Escher-inspired staircase, and a shadowy figure playing the piano, that can only be found in the Florida version of the attraction.

Why Walt Disney World Is Ultimately Better: While I had previously stated that the Disneyland version of The Haunted Mansion was superior between Halloween and Christmas because it’s the only one to get The Nightmare Before Christmas overlay, for the rest of the year, the Walt Disney World version is is the one to experience. The additional rooms here give you a reason to seek out the Florida experience.

While Walt Disney World may do some of its attractions a little better than Disneyland, the fact is none of these attractions on either list are in any way bad. They’re all great, and while I think there are some clear reasons why one version of a given attraction might be superior to another, there’s enough variety in here that a lot of people may have very different opinion for very logical reasons.

In the end, whether you are visiting Walt Disney World or Disneyland, there is plenty to keep you entertained and show you a good time. If anything, the fact that there are superior versions of some attractions at one park versus the other gives you a reason to visit both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, and not keep your vacations focused on a single coast.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Is Getting Re-Released With New Footage

Spider-Man: Far From Home came out at the beginning of July, so by now it’s close wrapping up its theatrical run… or at least, that’s what we thought. Fresh off becoming not just the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie, but also Sony Pictures’ highest-grossing movie of all time (surpassing 2012’s Skyfall), the studio has announced it’s bringing an extended cut of Far From Home to theaters.

This version of Spider-Man: Far From Home is four minutes longer than the original theatrical cut thanks to a “never-before-seen action sequence.” It’s hitting the silver screen in the United States and Canada on Thursday, August 27, and will be available in IMAX and large formats in select locations.

Why The Hulk’s Arm Didn’t Heal At The End Of Avengers: Endgame

We saw many times throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe how hard it was for an individual to harness the power of one just Infinity Stone, so calling on the power of all six seems unimaginable. And yet, two characters were able to survive such a task: Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and Hulk in the latter half of Avengers: Endgame. In the Green Goliath’s case, he walked away with a permanently damaged arm.

However, we’ve seen numerous times that The Hulk can take a lot of punishment because like his comic book counterpart, he has a regenerative healing factor. So why didn’t Hulk’s arm heal by the time Avengers: Endgame was over. That’s just what a fan asked directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and this was their response:

It’s one thing to get a beatdown from The Abomination or Surtur, but as Joe Russo laid out while he and his brother were answering fan questions about Avengers: Endgame for WIRED, the Infinity Stones are on a different level. These artifacts have been around since the beginning of the universe, and if you’re wielding that much power, there’s no way you’re going to come out of the experience unscathed.

Just look at Thanos. At the end of Avengers: Infinity War, he was damaged on the left side of his body and appeared weakened after wiping out half of all life in the universe, and when the heroes tracked him down at the beginning of Avengers: Endgame after he used the Infinity Stones again to destroy the Stones, the left side of his face was noticeably scarred. We saw Thanos kick Hulk to the curb in Infinity War, so if even The Mad Titan was permanently damaged by the Infinity Stones, Hulk had to be as well.

Still, this was something Hulk needed to do. Five years after Thanos committed genocide, Ant-Man managed to break free from the Quantum Realm regrouped with the surviving Avengers, leading them to realize they could use the Quantum Realm to travel through time, retrieve the Infinity Stones from different points in history and bring them back to the present to undo The Decimation.

Ultimately they were successful, and not only did Hulk bring the dusted back to life in 2023, he ensured they were returned safely. By the end of Avengers: Endgame, Hulk’s arm was in a sling, and while one can imagine it’ll regain basic function eventually, if Hulk appears in the MCU again, he won’t be at his physical peak thanks to this heroic act.

Avengers: Endgame is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, and be sure to look through our Marvel movies guide to learn what this franchise has coming up.

The Avengers: Ranking All The Major Characters By Costume Design

Iron Man (2008)

What is a superhero without their costume? A nudist crime-stopper, perhaps, but no matter. It’s clear that one of the most impressionable aspects of a great superhero character is the outfit they wear in the midst of saving the day. And when it comes to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s obvious that Marvel has a treasure trove of characters, many of whom have some sharp costumes. But who of the Avengers and their allies is wearing the best compared to the rest?

It’s a tough matter to decide. Clearly, after so many movies and quite a few costume changes, many of the most beloved characters in the MCU have gone through a wardrobe update or two. If there is one big rule in fashion, after all, it’s that you can’t be seen in the same outfit all the time. Therefore, as we have already noted, it isn’t exactly easy to figure out who wore it best and which costumes we should choose from all the available options. But we did the best we could, tried to rank them accordingly and explain our rational in the process too.

You might agree or you might disagree, but here is our personal ranking for the 10 best costumes worn in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Let’s begin.

Tessa Thompson - Thor: Ragnarok

10. Valkyrie (Thor: Ragnarok)

Tessa Thompson really rocked the role of Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. The actress, already on the rise through stand-out performances in Dear White People and Creed, made a big impression in her supporting role in the Thor threequel. But what also made a great impression were the outfits she wore as the character, which were created by costume designer Mayes C. Rubeo.

As we see in Thor: Ragnarok, Valkyrie is perpetually drunken, disheartened and sarcastic, but also sullen. Valkyrie has lost the ones she loves and has learned that she needs to depend on herself (and often only herself) to make in a cruel world. Her first outfit, therefore, is modest and practical by design. She need something that is both comfortable and dependable, both for fighting and for getting around. But as Valkyrie becomes both more confident and depend in both herself and her peers, she has a beautiful outfit that show off her valor — literally — as she lays her opponents to waste. It’s both narratively fitting and visually stunning. It’s, in short, quite easily one of the best outfits we’ve seen from the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet.

Cate Blanchett - Thor: Ragnarok

9. Hela (Thor: Ragnarok)

Similarly, but also from a different perspective, the costume seen on the antagonistic Hela, played by the wonderful Cate Blanchett, was also quite eye-catching and similarly appropriate for the character. As someone who was often prevented from getting her proper due in life, this character is both cloak in dark vengeance, but also someone who wants to make an entrance. She is going through heinous and criminal means to make a name for herself, but she’s doing it in style. Her costume, cloaked in dark colors but also completely fetching and eye-popping, provides that proper balance.

Hela gets what she wants, and she isn’t afraid to take everyone down in the process if they get in her way. This costume, once again by Mayes C. Rubeo, provides that balance of life-long alienation and that desire to be someone great — even if that means being evil in the process. It’s a tricky balance for a costume designer, but it’s also a delightful challenge. Thankfully, this costume captures those contradictions in a visually appealing style.

Tom Holland - Spider-Man: Homecoming

8. Spider-Man (Spider-Man: Homecoming)

As a crime-fighter who needs to keep his identity a secret, not only for his own safety, but the safety of the people he loves, Spider-Man is cloaked head-to-toe in his costume, and he needs to stand out. Spider-Man’s costume is, by a large extension, his identity, and how he keeps his real identity masked — both literally and figuratively. Therefore, it’s apparent that the costume needs to only only be exceptional. It needs to practical and fitting.

Spider-Man’s costume has changed more than three times throughout the course of Tom Holland’s five-film appearances inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Everyone has a personal favorite, but for me, I’m partial to his costume in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The outfit, made and designed by Tony Stark, is both humble and high tech. Designed in real-life by Louise Frogley, this costume is a nice balance of what we expect from Spider-Man of old and what we can expect from the new age of Spider-Man. The gadgetry, complete with a built-in voice system, allows Spider-Man to play with more tools than we’re used to seeing from the friendly neighborhood web guy. But there’s also a pretty severe learning curve as well.

Spider-Man embodies the trials of growing up and learning how to go from being a boy to a man. He’s a very human character, even if he is given the powers of a spider. Therefore, the best Spider-Man movies focus on the hard battles between your established identity and the man who wants to become. This costume, which is both practical but also filled with many wonderful surprises, is the costume that really captures the wonders of what Spider-Man can be inside the MCU. And it’s easily one of the best costumes in this universe.

The only reason I’m rating it a little lower is because, well, we have several other costumes from other movies to compare it to, and tech in the costume still feels decidedly not Spider-Man. But hey, maybe that’s just me. It’s an argument worth having. And goodness knows, it’s an argument I’ve had several times by now.

Chris Hemsworth - Thor: Ragnarok

7. Thor (Thor: Ragnarok)

Of all the Marvel heroes, Thor is the one who hasn’t often gotten his due. The character, while a prominent Avenger, was often seen as a lesser one (unjustly, in my view), compared to some of his heroic peers. But for many folks, Thor stood out in a big way with Thor: Ragnarok, which allowed the character to have a bigger arc than we’re used to seeing from the often cocky and self-righteous character. He is taken down to his core essentials and stripped of his planet, his family, his hammer (temporarily) and even his eye and hair. It’s a lot for one demi-god to go through in a short span of time.

And the costume reflects that journey. Over the course of Thor: Ragnarok, his costume (once again designed by Mayes C. Rubeo) is also stripped down and more rugged, reflecting the hard-knocked journey that our titan of a character endures. In order to properly reflect his hardships, we need to see him become more diminished and distraught. His character is theatrical by design, but I appreciate that this process is more subtle when it comes to his costume. Little by little, it’s taken apart, until it’s basically its core that remains. That’s a good reflection of the character himself and endurance.

Evangeline Lilly, Paul Rudd - Ant-Man And The Wasp

6. Ant-Man (Ant-Man And The Wasp)

Similar to Spider-Man, Ant-Man’s costume needs to keep things covered and private. The costume has the power to shrink and grow its wearer, and it is one that needs to be practical in some respects, but it also visually appealing. Because of that, you need to make something that’s both not too clunky and not too impractical for the character. It’s a tricky combination, but it was accomplished thanks to costume designer Sammy Sheldon in Ant-Man and Louise Frogley in Ant-Man and the Wasp. While it’s hard to pick between the two films, it’s worth celebrating the great costumes found inside the newly-released sequel.

Ant-Man is a character who is often changing, both literally and figuratively. Through the costume, he is able to see the world in new lights, and the costume highlights his personal growth and how big the world can be when he’s just a tiny speck running around stopping crime. It is a costume that is both expendable, but also well-fitting, without becoming too bulky or visually uninteresting. It also helps that the costumes for The Wasp, played by Evangeline Lilly, and Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen, are also highly exceptional, particularly for Ghost’s costume.

Benedict Cumberbatch - Doctor Strange

5. Doctor Strange (Doctor Strange)

There’s no doubt that in the comics, Doctor Strange has one of the coolest costumes. Complete with a cape that literally has a mind of its own and a nice medallion to compliment the ensemble, it’s a visually striking piece, and it’d definitely need to be down justify on the big screen. Thankfully, costume designer Alexandra Byrne knocked it out of the cosmic stratosphere with her great work in Doctor Strange’s introductory 2016 movie, Doctor Strange.

Wielding some mystic powers and cosmic capabilities, Doctor Strange has some extraordinary magic on his side, and he looks snazzy to boot. Byrne made sure the surgeon-turned-sorcerer lived up to his appearance in the comics, and the result is one of the best-looking costumes seen from the MCU to date.

Brie Larson - Captain Marvel

4. Captain Marvel (Captain Marvel)

The newest mainstay player for The Avengers, Captain Marvel is one of the most powerful and outstanding Marvel characters. Her name is Captain Marvel, after all. Therefore, it’s important that the costume reflections her awesome stance in the MCU. And thankfully, the costume did not disappoint.

Designed by Sanja Milkovic Hays, Captain Marvel’s costume is stunning, and one that grows with the character — like many other characters seen on this list. As Carol Danvers finds her identity, Captain Marvel’s costume becomes more vibrant and prominent. Thanks to the wide burst of colors used to make it stand out, the costume becomes a clear part of her identity, and why she becomes one of Marvel’s most triumphant heroes. It’s a newer addition to this ongoing list, but we like to think that Captain Marvel earns her rank through the exceptional costume that she sports in Captain Marvel.

Iron Man (2008)

3. Iron Man (Iron Man)

He’s the one who started it all. The Robert Downey Jr.-led origin story that jumpstarted what we now know today as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a roaring triumph of a blockbuster; one that really stood out for a lesser-known character and provided the troubled actor with a buoyant, visually stylish and significant return to the public. Since he’s wearing a costume that he himself assembled, Tony Stark needs to ensure his suit is great. It’s the source of his powers, after all. Thankfully, this introductory film for the billionaire arms dealer-turned-heroic world saver equipped the guy with quite several really great suits.

As we’ve mentioned before with other characters, Tony Stark’s journey is chronicled through his super-suit. As the character grows into a more well-rounded person, so too does the tech suit grow more extravagant. As a result, we witness the progression of the character through the development of his suits. And as he gets better, so too does his metal suit. Costume designers Rebecca Gregg and Laura Jean Shannon did some extraordinary work.

Chris Evans - Captain America: Civil War

2. Captain America (Captain America: Civil War)

Captain America is a character who, in the wrong hands, can seem kinda dorky and dweeby. He is the do-gooder in a team of world-savers, the guy who wants to preserve justice and order in a place where chaos is often persistent — even, sometimes, in his home base of S.H.I.E.L.D. The guy is someone who is always wanting to do the right thing, even under drastic measures. And he is all about the red, white and blue of America’s colors.

Therefore, the costume needs to reflect that. While Captain America’s costume hasn’t always been super (I’m looking at you, The Avengers), the transition has been unfolded surprisingly well throughout the films. And while I’m partial to his costume in The First Avenger, and there are quite a few fans of his costume in The Winter Soldier (which is very blue, to parallel the character’s disposition), the one worth recognizing here is found in 2016’s Civil War.

This costume, designed by Judianna Makovsky, is notably a very mid-point costume for our America-loving hero. Proudly displaying the red, the white and the blue of our conflicted character, who is caught in an internal battle with his own life-saving peers, Steve Rogers is morally at odds, but he’s clearly still about the values of his country (and the world). He wants what is best for the people, and that involves freedom. Even if some of the other Avengers do not agree or understand that, he sticks to his morals and he wears them proudly — both literally and figuratively. That’s seen quite prominently here.

Chadwick Boseman - Black Panther

1. Black Panther (Black Panther)

It would be hard to pick anything else for the #1 spot on this list. Costume designer Ruth E. Carter won an Oscar for her stunning and extravagant costume work in the monumental blockbuster Black Panther, and her costume work was rightfully recognized. It’s an extravagant accomplishment for any genre and it is clearly the work of a seasoned designer working on a big budget and doing incredible stuff. That can prominent be seen with Black Panther’s outfit.

The work of an exceptionally talented designer, the costume given to Black Panther is a vibrant, extravagant work. It feels like an organic extension of the character, representing everything that’s significant about Wakanda, and Chadwick Boseman makes it look damn good to boot. It’s beautiful work only one of the dazzling costumes found in the film. It’d be hard to justify any other costume to select in its place; this deserves the top spot.

There are several other, highly exceptional costumes we could’ve picked, and we’re sure you have your personal favorites. Let us know what you think in the comments below, and we hope you give your reasons for why you think one costume should be picked over another. There are several to choose from.

Sylvester Stallone Shares New Bloody Rambo: Last Blood Image

As Rambo V: Last Blood inches closer to its release, the final marketing push behind the film has become a bit more forceful. The title tells moviegoers exactly what to expect: more badass action sequences, more blood and more Sylvester Stallone, all for the last time. We already know a bit about the film, but the sheer joy of watching Rambo utterly annihilate scores of one-dimensional baddies is a joy that even mild spoilers can’t ruin.

Now, Sylvester Stallone himself has shared a new image from the film and it’s all kinds of amazing. We’re betting that, like its preceding installments, the film is going to make an absolute killing at the box office. Why wouldn’t it?

As you can see, this Instagram photo Sylvester Stallone shared depicts his character sitting astride a horse with one blood-caked hand grasping the reins. It’s honestly not much, but at this point, we’ll take anything we can get as we wait for the film’s September release.

What did catch our attention was Sylvester Stallone’s short-but-sweet caption, which promised that a new teaser will drop Tuesday. He really didn’t need to say any more, honestly. And while this is exciting, it’s not the first footage we’ve seen. Nor is it the first trailer we’ve seen. Still, we’re chomping at the bit to see what else Stallone and company will show us.

Rambo: Last Blood will see John Rambo traveling to Mexico to save his friend’s daughter from the cartel. Adrian Grunberg directed the film and Stallone co-wrote it along with Matt Cirulnick. Before principal photography began in October 2018, the film had a fairly troubled production.

Its predecessor, Rambo IV, was released in 2008 to mixed reviews. Various versions were started and scrapped for months after that film’s release, and nothing was set in stone until Stallone announced in May 2018 that Last Blood would be released in fall 2019.

The franchise-starter Rambo: First Blood was released in 1982 and was a box office hit. It followed veteran John Rambo as he battled corruption in a small town in Washington. Despite the fact that the film suffered slightly from a mixed critical response, the film’s box office performance encouraged the studio to pursue a highly successful franchise, and it got one.

Now, decades later, we’ve arrived at Rambo’s final adventure, and it promises all the action, violence, and steely determination we’ve come to expect from the series and its muscle-bound protagonist. September can’t come soon enough!

Rambo V: Last Blood hits theaters on September 20. Are you excited? Are you indifferent? Are you a casual fan who may or may not catch it in the theater? What other 2019 movies are you excited for? Let us know in the comments below!

Sean Gunn Teases An Upcoming Ravager Reunion

With James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 seemingly now a part of Marvel’s Phase 5, pending an appearance in something like The Eternals or Thor: Love and Thunder, it could be a while before we see the Ravagers onscreen again. Fear not though, because the band of interstellar rogues won’t be entirely absent from the world during that time. In fact Sean Gunn is actually teasing an upcoming Ravager reunion. Take a look:

Yes, you can meet the Ravagers in person, and unlike Peter Quill, you don’t need to get abducted by Yondu’s Ravager Clan to do it. As Sean Gunn teased on his Instagram, a Ravager reunion, or as he dubbed it, a “Ravager Hoedown” will be happening at Bubba Fest! America’s Original Southern-Fried Comic Con, which takes place in Knoxville, Tennessee from August 23-25.

Sean Gunn, who plays the on-set Rocket Raccoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy and the two most recent Avengers films, as well as the Ravager Kraglin, will reunite at the convention with actor and fellow Ravager, Chris Sullivan. Chris Sullivan played the hilariously-named and unfortunate-looking Taserface in the second Guardians movie. He was the Ravager who mutinied against Yondu, was ripped by Rocket and died. Chris Sullivan is also known for his roles in This Is Us and Stranger Things.

These two former cinematic allies will be reuniting after Sean Gunn’s Kraglin accidentally started Taserface’s mutiny in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. This reunion will give fans an opportunity to meet two of the Ravagers in person and undoubtedly ask pressing questions about the beloved projects they are and have been in.

For Sean Gunn, that means Avengers: Endgame (yup, he was in there) questions and for Chris Sullivan, that means This Is Us, in addition to the Guardians questions of course. Chris Sullivan and Sean Gunn are also both slated to reprise their respective roles in voice form for Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series What If…?, so that represents a whole host of possibilities fans can ask futile questions about.

Although Sean Gunn and Chris Sullivan are the only two Ravagers that will be in attendance at Bubba Fest!, there are many other famous and familiar names from the worlds of film, television, wrestling and comics who will be in Knoxville. Among them are Chuck Norris, Michael Madsen, Lee Majors, Brian O’Halloran, David Fielding, Jamie fookin’ Lannister himself Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and the creator/co-creator of Thanos, Drax, Gamora and Shang-Chi, Jim Starlin.

Other than the aforementioned What If…?, we’ll presumably next see the Ravagers and Sean Gunn’s Kraglin in his brother James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. With Yondu dead and Kraglin leading the Ravagers into battle in Avengers: Endgame, we’ll have to see if he plays an even bigger role in the third film.

If you’re interested in attending the Ravager reunion at Bubba Fest!, you can still get tickets at the website. Check out our guide to see when all of the MCU’s Phase 4 films are hitting, and stay tuned to CinemaBlend for the latest movie news.

That Time Cardi B Taught Constance Wu To Give A Lap Dance On The Set Of Hustlers

What are friends for? Whether they be best buddies, or in the case of Hustlers co-stars Constance Wu and Cardi B, valued co-workers, there’s always something that they can do to make life just a little easier. In the scenario we’re about to lay down, that “something” is tips on how to give a good lap dance.

Who says you can’t learn something new and exciting in Hollywood? In a recent interview, the Crazy Rich Asians star told a short, but incredibly funny story about how her fellow Hustlers star decided to show her the ropes:

As a former stripper herself, Cardi B is the expert tier teacher/ringer that the cast of Hustlers definitely needs, as it’s primed to tell the true story about how a group of women fleeced men in positions of high finance. Naturally, everyone from musical sensation Lizzo to Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart needs to look like they can act the part, so everyone needed some professional lessons, as well as the potential for some pointers from their recording artist colleague.

Constance Wu’s on-set lessons weren’t the extent of her education in stripping, as she also told EW that in addition to Cardi B’s informal tutelage, there were also pole-dancing classes that were given on the weekends. So her prep for the showstopping dances featured in Hustlers also included a classroom curriculum that saw her building her skills outside of when the cameras were rolling.

As if that wasn’t enough of a variety of professional stripping teachers, Jennifer Lopez’s role as the experienced veteran of the stripping scene, Ramona, required she take what could be considered A.P. classes in stripping and movement. This meant that J. Lo had to work with Johanna Sapakie, a choreographer and Cirque Du Soleil aerialist, which puts to rest any and all claims casual moviegoers may have about how much effort she, Constance Wu, and Cardi B put into their on screen professions. If that doesn’t do it, then perhaps the insanely perfect shape Lopez has gotten into for Hustlers will silence all remaining critics. Abs like that hold up in court, folks.

Hustlers is one of the first big movies to head our way in the fall movie season, with writer/director Lorene Scafaria primed to return to the big screen with a story so outrageous, it just has to be true. Which only recalls a key rule of storytelling: the more convincing everything else is, the more likely your audience will be to buy the really outrageous stuff.

So thank you, Cardi B, on behalf of moviegoers everywhere who are ready to see Hustlers grab all the loot it can walk away with on September 13th. But don’t forget any of the other box office excitement that’s set to debut between now and then, especially when our 2019 release schedule is the perfect reminder of just what’s on the way.

Fast and Furious 9 Just Added A Guardian Of The Galaxy Star

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham may be sitting out the upcoming Fast & Furious 9 due to being busy with spinoff Hobbs & Shaw, but the next entry in the Fast & Furious franchise is ensuring that there will be plenty of well-known actors involved. The latest casting update is that Guardians of the Galaxy’s Michael Rooker is being brought in to participate in the high octane craziness.

According to Deadline, Michael Rooker will be playing a character named Buddy, who is a last minute addition to the production, which started rolling cameras in late June. No details were provided about this Buddy, so we’ll have to wait and see whether he’ll be an ally or adversary to Dominic Toretto and his gang of car enthusiasts.

As the outlet noted, this makes 2020 an even bigger year for the actor. He was already slated to appear in Fantasy Island (based on the same-named TV series), Monster Problems and Amazon’s pilot for The Dark Tower, but now he also gets to take part in another popular film franchise, just two years after he bid farewell to another one of those.

Michael Rooker has assembled a wealth of credits from over three decades of acting, ranging from Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Mallrats to Days of Thunder (another car-centric movie) and The Walking Dead, but in recent years, he’s arguably best known for playing Yondu in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Rooker’s Yondu died at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to save Peter Quill, and and while superhero stories are known for impermanent deaths, James Gunn has said that he doesn’t plan on resurrecting Yondu for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, leaving Rooker free to lend his talents to another film series that cherishes family.

Ad Astra And Ford V Ferrari Are The Most Important Films For Fox’s Future With Disney

Ad Astra Brad Pitt looks out the spaceship window

Ever since the ambitious merger of Disney and Fox closed earlier this year, the fate of the latter studio has been somewhat of a question mark. While its new corporate parent has done everything to assure folks that it won’t fold entirely, recent developments have thrown the fate of those decisions into question.

Most importantly, there’s the recent third quarter dip in Disney’s bottom line, thanks to many factors, which included the financial failure of Dark Phoenix at the box office. Admittedly, while the company’s theme park division also accounted for the bump in the road, the film studio is admittedly the bread and butter of the Walt Disney Company’s operations.

With that core tenet in mind, it looks as if the next two films on the Fox docket, the Brad Pitt sci-fi drama Ad Astra and the Christian Bale/Matt Damon racing biopic Ford v. Ferrari, are going to be the most important films to the future of Disney’s conjoined film dominion. Here are the reasons why they’ll be so important.

The Fox Brand Has Yet To Be Defined In Disney’s Corporate Structure

In the environment of the Fox/Disney merger, the exact purpose of the 20th Century Fox label hasn’t been defined just yet. Much as Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm Ltd. have their respective brands and slates of production, it would be assumed that in order for Fox to survive, it needs to prove itself useful.

Should Ad Astra and Ford v. Ferrari become box office hits, the studio would very easily have a defined lane to stay in. Operating within a PG-13 – R-rated playing field, Fox could evolve into a powerhouse that takes up the mantle that Touchstone Pictures and Hollywood Pictures once operated under in Disney in the ‘90s.

More mature projects can flourish under this banner, with mid-to-high budget figures and independent of the more blockbuster portions of the joint film operations of Disney/Fox. If this strategy pans out, more experimental films can be crafted, finding new and exciting paths for creators to take with their work.

Both Movies Are Driven By Impressive Star Power

The importance of star power is something that’s still debated in the realm of the cinematic market. While it’s hard to try and determine which concepts will draw audiences to the theater, it’s even harder to gauge which performers can still pack ‘em in the aisles at your local movie house.

Combining the star power of both Ad Astra and Ford v. Ferrari, you’ll see Brad Pitt, Liv Tyler and Tommy Lee Jones leading that first film, with Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Jon Bernthal and even Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe taking up the cause for that second picture. That’s a lot of well-known names, appealing to a nice cross generational mix of potential filmgoers.

It’s a wide spectrum of names that could draw in just the right balance of older and younger film fans to their local cinemas. While the casts and the content of these films don’t scream Marvel Cinematic Universe levels of popularity, there’s enough firepower to rack up two outside of the box hits at the box office, and keep Fox in play for the foreseeable future.

Ad Astra Is A Potential Sleeper Hit

There’s a two-pronged structure that could ensure Fox would stay alive into the foreseeable future. All that needs to happen is for the studio to rack up a blockbuster-sized hit with audiences and an awards season title that produces a killer amount of buzz. Since Fox only has a co-production credit on Terminator: Dark Fate, its blockbuster hopes are probably better pinned on Ad Astra.

In terms of the audience-friendly blockbuster, Ad Astra could replicate the record-setting success that 20th Century Fox had with The Martian back in 2015. While there’s no pre-existing source material for director James Gray’s high concept space adventure, the right comparisons between this film and the Matt Damon adaptation of Andy Weir’s exciting tale of survival on Mars could mean blockbuster returns.

A late September release window, with Rambo: Last Blood acting as the only direct competition, could put Ad Astra into a surprising position as a big ticket hit. If that happens, the losses of films like Dark Phoenix may be forgiven in the name of helping further define the type of movie Fox should be releasing.

Ford V. Ferrari Could Be An Awards Season Contender

With Ad Astra looking to potentially win audiences over with its high minded science fiction, Ford v. Ferrari would fulfill the other side of the two-pronged structure to define the modern era of Fox movie content. That means director James Mangold could hold the key to the studio’s awards season fate.

The simple truth when it comes to 20th Century Fox is this: there are only three more films to be released on its 2019 calendar: Ad Astra, Ford v. Ferrari, and Spies In Disguise. That means the studio’s best chance for an awards season ringer is Mangold’s tale of the fateful 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Ideally, this would also be a candidate for blockbuster success, what with its budget being similar to Ad Astra’s. However, this is undoubtedly a prestige player in the Fox stable, and all the money in the world wouldn’t make up for it not nabbing some sort of nominations come Oscar night. Especially when the studio’s own awards-heavy offshoot is looking at some troubled times as well.

Jojo Rabbit and Hitler run and jump through the woods

Fox Searchlight’s Fate Hangs In The Balance, By Proxy

While they aren’t part of the Fox proper release slate, the output that Fox Searchlight will be engaging in marketing to the public in the next couple of months will also be affected by how well Fox proper can get its job done.

With Ready Or Not and Jojo Rabbit as prime examples of the studio’s output for the rest of 2019, these represent the highest profile titles that Fox Searchlight has coming in the next couple of months. And while Disney has sworn to not only keep Searchlight active, but also not to interfere with their operations, should Fox fail, that could change.

The beginnings of that interference have been seen as the parent studio is apparently getting cold feet about releasing Taika Waititi’s anti-hate satire, as the Mouse House is afraid the film will alienate Disney’s core audience. If Ad Astra succeeds, then there’s a good chance that Jojo Rabbit just might be left alone, as it will earn the studio the breathing room it needs. Should it fail hard enough, we could see Fox Searchlight’s autonomy crumble, with projects such as Antlers and Downhill potentially looking for a new home in order to free up some Disney release space.

The merger between Disney and Fox changed the landscape of Hollywood in a substantial manner, and there are going to be plenty of ripples that we’ll see taking shape in the cinematic pond throughout the rest of 2019. While those particular side effects aren’t set in stone, it’s safe to say that Ad Astra and Ford V. Ferrari are going to be the two most important films for The Walt Disney Company.

The rest of the Disney film slate this year is comprised of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Frozen 2 and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Naturally, two of those movies are monolithic sure bets, while Maleficent’s sequel is a gamble, but a very safe one considering the first film’s success. So those films aren’t going to be as much of a going concern when those third quarter results are still looming fresh in studio executives’ minds and the Fox side of the house being behind such results.

We’ll see where the rest of 2019 takes Disney and Fox, but if the latter studio wants to please the former in an impressive fashion, succeeding with those two star-powered films will be essential to saving their collective skin. So if you’re interested in saving Fox and have interest in either film mentioned above, the following information will be crucial.

Ad Astra lands in theaters on September 20, while Ford v. Ferrari revs its engines theatrically on November 15. To keep track of these films, and all others being released throughout the rest of this year, take a look at our 2019 release schedule.

The Rock Had A Secret Wedding In Hawaii

The Rock may be known for being the world’s biggest movie star, a larger than life, and just plain large actor who fronts huge blockbusters and captures the attention of millions on the big screen and on social media, but when it came to his nuptials, the man named Dwayne Johnson took a more low-key approach. The Rock, who can currently be seen in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, just had a secret wedding in Hawaii. Check it out:

As you can see, The Rock married his longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian over the weekend in Hawaii. Despite his public visibility and possibly because of it, Dwayne Johnson and Lauren Hashian kept their wedding ceremony a secret beforehand, so this news came as a surprise. But the actor made sure to let all of his followers on Instagram know after the fact that the two had finally tied the knot

The images he shared show the loving couple dressed in their wedding attire, with The Rock getting away with wearing white no less, on a rise overlooking the Pacific ocean on what appears to be a gorgeous day. Mr. & Mrs. Rock look positively thrilled and Dwayne Johnson, in true romantic fashion, even shares a photo of the couple sharing a kiss as newlyweds, with the Hawaiian sunset glowing in the background.

The Rock kept the caption in his Instagram post short and sweet, simply saying “We do. August 18th, 2019. Hawaii. Pomaika’i (blessed)” with the Hawaiian word letting everyone know how he’s feeling at his good fortune in love. In his post Dwayne Johnson also tags Hiram Garcia, who was in attendance at the ceremony and snapped these lovely photos.

Hiram Garcia is The Rock’s former brother-in-law from his first marriage to Dany Garcia and he is currently the President of Production at The Rock and Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions.

People have been wondering when The Rock would finally pop the question to Lauren Hashian for some time now. According to CNN, The Rock met the singer and music producer in 2006 and the two started dating in 2007 but he has been in no great hurry to get married.

In the past Dwayne Johnson has said that he already refers to Lauren Hashian as his wife, so there was no rush. Last year he said that his busy schedule was a factor and that they had planned to get married, but then Lauren got pregnant and didn’t want to be pregnant in a wedding dress so they waited. That wait is finally over though, they found the time and The Rock and the woman who is his rock are officially married.

The 47-year-old Dwayne Johnson and 34-year-old Lauren Hashian already have two children together, 3-year-old Jasmine and 1-year-old Tiana and The Rock has an 18-year-old daughter, Simone, from his previous marriage.

You can currently see The Rock in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Hopefully the always busy Dwayne Johnson has time for a well-deserved honeymoon, because he’s got a bunch of new movies in various stages of development on the way. You can check them all out in our guide.
