In fact, a new report indicates that Johnny Depp had only filmed one scene prior to his exit. Those in the know may understand why, as THR revealed the reason Warner Bros. has to pay Depp his full due after leaving Fantastic Beasts 3 is due to a classic “Pay or Play” contract saying the studio must. Just as the name implies, should a star be committed to a project with this famous clause in play, whether the film happens or they get fired, they still get paid. So with one scene in the can, Johnny Depp will have gotten an entire paycheck out of the deal.
While Scream 5‘s contents will remain a complete mystery for the foreseeable future, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett have assembled a strong cast to make the highly anticipated movie into a reality. In addition to the trio of original stars, actress Marley Shelton will be reprising her role as Judy Hicks from Scream 4. There’s also a stellar cast of young cast filling out the cast, including The Boys‘ Jack Quaid, Jenna Ortega (You, The Babysitter 2), 13 Reasons Why star Dylan Minnette, Jasmin Savoy Brown (The Leftovers), and Melissa Barrera (Vida, In the Heights).
Of course, there is more to the 41-year-old New Yorker than donning capes to fight crime, space battles, or tending to the wounds of superheroes. Rosario Dawson was the head Old Town girl, Gail, in both Sin City movies, a skilled stunt driver who bested Kurt Russell in Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse segment Death Proof, a drug-addict exotic dancer in the film adaptation of Tony winner Rent, and proved she has what it takes to survive in a world ruled by the dead for more than a decade in Zombieland: Double Tap.
However, for every Rosario Dawson role you remember and praise her for, there is one that could have slipped your mind, failed hit your radar, or you just never got around to seeing it. Well, allow us to remind you of what you have been missing out on (or help beef up your to-watch list) with just seven of the actress’ greatest hits that deserve more attention, starting at the very beginning of her career.
Set in 1970s London, Cruella follows the eponymous character as she rises through the fashion industry and becomes increasingly obsessed with dog skins, especially from Dalmatians. Along with the aforementioned actors, the cast includes Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Jamie Demetriou. Tony McNamara and Dana Fox penned the most recent version of the screenplay.
This one is simple. Which one has the most exciting action?
RoboCop has blood and gore galore, and all of it’s exaggerated with great intention. Still, even though the film is a commentary on the numbing effect of violence, it still looks freaking badass. Especially the scenes with the stop-motion ED-209 robot. Awesome stuff.
Total Recall’s Action
Total Recall is an espionage movie at its heart, so there’s plenty of sci-fi gunplay, as well as cool hand-to-hand combat. But for a 1990’s Arnold Schwarzenegger film, it’s a lot more cerebral than combative.
Starship Troopers’ Action
Starship Troopers shows the effects of war as the soldiers fight alien bugs, but it’s really not all that interesting. For a much more visually impressive movie about soldiers fighting bug-like aliens, see Edge of Tomorrow.
The Action Victor – RoboCop
By being a commentary on violence, it actually delivers the most exciting action by far. Strange how that happened, but it did.
Candyman is one of the highly-anticipated films of 2021 because of Jordan Peele as co-writer and producer, Nia DaCosta as director and co-writer, a talented cast, and an already rich storyline and film history. As a fan of horror movies, a fan of what Peele does to horror, and someone who was terrified of the original Candyman character, this is a film that I am anxious to see.
Like any film that has a lot of buzz around it, the Candyman team behind this “spiritual sequel” remains quiet–keeping anticipation and suspense high. Despite the secrecy surrounding this film, there are a few important things that we know about the new Candyman flick.
Spoiler warning: I will be mentioning a few plot points and spoilers from the original Candyman**. Proceed with caution.**
One could make the argument that David Fincher is forgetting about the wave of “micro-budget” titles (which is to say movies that are made for less than $10 million) that have become a big part of the release calendar, but the core of his point is wholly factual. With studios ever more focused on massive investments or guaranteed prestige pictures, movies that aim for a budget in the $30-50 million range have become hard to get made and, as a result, rare.
Warning: spoilers for The Village are in play. If you’ve somehow escaped spoilers for this M. Night Shyamalan film, and want to remain that way, don’t follow us into the woods.
A little over 16 years ago, M. Night Shyamalan was on a hot streak, as his career had delivered three solid hits into the world: The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs. Terror laden tales of people overcoming personal trauma, and becoming stronger than they ever could have imagined, this landmark trio served as the foundation for the writer/director’s meteoric rise in the Hollywood firmament. And then, on July 30, 2004, all of that changed when The Village saw critics, and even fans, turning against the steadily climbing auteur and his visions. Part of the problem was, folks didn’t know what to make of The Village’s ending, and there’s a really good reason for that.
Born in 1924, Shirley Chisolm grew up in Brooklyn, New York and attended Brooklyn College before earning her Masters degree at Columbia University. Her first step into politics was in a support role, as she helped campaigns for those she supported, and she was a member of the Brooklyn Democratic Clubs and the League of Women Voters. She first ran for a seat in the New York state assembly in 1964, and while she faced resistance she first won in the Democratic primary and then trounced her Republican and Liberal party opponents in the election. In 1968 she ran for U.S. House of Representatives serving New York’s 12th congressional district, and once again won in a landslide, making her the first Black woman ever in congress.
Henry Jones Gasping In Shock At Indiana Jones Killing Nazis
Not long after Indiana Jones comes to rescue his dad, several Nazis enter with machine guns, demanding they hand over Henry Jones’ Grail Diary. Henry Jones scoffs, mocking the Nazis for believing Indiana Jones would be stupid enough to bring the diary all the way back. Of course, Indiana Jones did just that. But, instead of handing it over, Indiana Jones seizes a machine gun and guns down the Nazis. Henry Jones, in absolute shock, says, “Look what you did. I can’t believe what you did.”
