Without any information about the story to work with, it’s impossible right now to guess what kind of setting Chris Pratt and Sam Richardson will find themselves in the next time together, only that alongside whatever action unfolds, there will be plenty of laughs. Still, both of these men have plenty of comedic experience, so it’ll be interesting to see how their respective styles will blend together. Along with starring as Andy Dwyer in Parks & Recreation, Pratt’s gotten to show off his humorous chops in the MCU, The LEGO Movie and Onward. As noted earlier, Richardson starred as Richard Splett in Veep, and his other big credits include Detroiters, BoJack Horseman, M.O.D.O.K., Good Boys and Promising Young Woman.
His unwillingness to actually watch himself in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent aside, it sounds like Nicolas Cage had an enjoyable enough time making the movie under the direction of Tom Gormican, who previously helmed 2014’s That Awkward Moment. As for what we can expect from this fictional version of Cage, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent follows him at a point in his career where he’s struggling, to the point that he accepts $1 million to perform at the birthday party of one of his fans, who’s named Javi. But as it turns out, the super-rich Javi, played by The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal, also happens to be a powerful drug lord, and Cage is subsequently approached by U.S. federal agents to help them bring down Javi’s operation. The increasingly-crazy situation becomes even more personal for the actor when his wife and daughter are taken captive.
Unlike her previous roles, Alfre Woodard was able to bring out her maternal side on the big screen. She tapped into the dynamics of being a Black woman in the 1970s, giving a realistic portrayal of a woman balancing work, everyday life and motherhood. Despite not being a real family, the acting titan gave off motherly vibes with her young co-stars, especially in the intimate moments.
When you check out the bonus features, you can see what the actresses actually looked like on set when filming the Black Widow sequence, but as they shared, a ton of it was practical. When Scarlett Johansson first read the scene, she didn’t think much of it, but when it came actually shooting it on a motorcycle with Pugh right behind her, it sounds like it was pretty intense.
Look, it depends when you want to get there, and also, what the appetite is. If people want more Venom stories, then, to jump straight to Spider-Man, you could be missing out on so many great supervillain characters in between now and then. So, in a way, by rushing to it, you might be closing the door.
In the end, Tenet began its domestic theatrical rollout on September 3, 2020, but it only made around $363 million worldwide and, according to Variety, lost Warner Bros approximately $50 million. Cut to the present, because Nolan wasn’t contracted or have any first-look deals set up at WB, it was easy enough for him to look for other studios to house his Oppenheimer biopic, which will explore the man’s role in creating the atomic bomb during World War II. Nolan ultimately agreed to sign a deal with Universal, but not just because the studio will fully finance his estimated $100 million picture.
But Step Up was like the perfect amalgamation of both those ideas, and it pretty much became the de facto dance series of that time period. Just think, most dance movies were one and done, or got a straight-to-DVD sequel like Save the Last Dance 2, or Stomp the Yard: Homecoming. But I would say that Step Up pretty much set the reference point for all other dance movies. So much so, that you could even say, oh, this is like Step Up but on a college campus. Or, this is like Step Up, but with cheerleaders. That’s how big Step Up got in the 2000s, and it’s a huge shame that we haven’t gotten a new movie since 2014. I mean, come on, people! Bring dance back to the theaters! I want my Step Up 666: Dance, Lucifer, Dance! It could happen!
I had a white line producer, a white AD, they also read [reviews that said my last film] Shadowboxer was the worst film ever made, and they had zero respect for me, my vision, or what it was. They were New Yorkers that looked at this as a job. I kept coming home like, this doesn’t feel right, she doesn’t look right, the set looks weird. I felt like I was giving birth to an alien, literally, so I did something that I now don’t even know whether I’d have the courage to do, but I fired everybody. I shut it down.
As Megan Fox wrote on social media, she aims to ignore and defy all of society’s “puritanical emotionally repressed projections of what a woman should be.” The actress likes to push the boundaries of fashion, and with these looks, she’s reminding people that while being revealing may shock others by nature, that doesn’t mean it’s inherently offensive. There’s been a stigma around women revealing their bodies that goes back thousands of years, and Fox reminds us that it’s this belief that incites that reaction.
The other hero Shang-Chi met in his movie, thanks to Wong, was Captain Marvel. This hero would be a great one for him to team up with for a few reasons. For one, she’s another recent hero we’ve seen get an origin story. Interestingly enough, Carol Danvers now one of the older Avengers, so she’d have a lot of wisdom to throw the way of a newbie hero like Shang-Chi. Additionally, behind the scenes, Shang-Chi‘s director, Destin Daniel Cretton, has worked with Brie Larson on two other projects: Short Term 12 and The Glass Castle. They’ve created some awe-inspiring work together, and seeing how they work in the MCU, perhaps in a Shang-Chi sequel would be killer and full circle for Larson.
