When it comes to breakthrough roles, Tom Hiddleston becoming Loki was one of Marvel’s best castings. Not only did Hiddleston graduate from indie films to blockbusters overnight, but he got to work with Anthony Hopkins. But even a two-time Oscar winner can get starstruck while filming a Marvel epic. Hiddleston admitted even Hopkins and other veterans occasionally fanboy out on the Marvel sets.
Throughout all of the Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway interviews I conducted, there was a huge connective thread that everyone had in common. That singularity came from the cast’s love for co-writer/director Will Gluck’s collaborative energy. Though Elizabeth Debicki was given notes to tone down the bossy nature of Mopsy Rabbit, it was all part of the process that honed the finished product into the delightful family film that all can enjoy. Even with the delay in release, and a couple years removed from the original recording sessions, Debicki easily described the experience as follows:
In association with Comic-Con, Paramount Pictures is screening Snake Eyes in 10 cities across the United States and Canada on Wednesday, July 21, two days before its wide release. If you live in, or are close to, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Miami, San Diego, Houston, Phoenix and Vancouver, you’ll be able to partake in one of these fan screenings, with specific details on how to reserve a spot to be revealed at a later date over at @snakeeyesmovie.
The Pizza Planet truck can be found later on in the movie. It’s a perfect homage considering the original home to pizza is, in fact, Italy. I’m sure Portorosso’s pizza is much, much better than the joint the Toy Story toys and Andy hung out in.
If there was ever an era that fit the Bond aesthetic in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, it would definitely be Sir Roger Moore’s. Yes, Thunderball feels like a huge influence, as it hits some of the same thematic materials from that film. Antonio Banderas’ Aristotle Papadopoulos feels like a sillier version of Emilio Largo, right down to his plot to hold Europe for ransom if his demands aren’t met. Plus, the entire final showdown takes place on the villain’s yacht, which again, is totally Thunderball.
Just like in the original story, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One and Part Two sees the titular hero tracking down Holiday, who is killing people associated with the Falcone crime family. Along with Batman running into colorful members of his rogues gallery during the course of his investigation, Long Halloween also chronicles Harvey Dent’s slow decline into darkness. Part One’s main cast includes Jensen Ackles, the late Naya Rivera, Josh Duhamel, Billy Burke, Titus Welliver, David Dastmalchian, Troy Baker, Julie Nathanson and Jack Quaid, among others.
The two are seriously building a rapport ahead of the new movie, as they argued over crocs in a Deadline interview about Pussy Island, which Channing Tatum admitting Zoë Kravitz may know best.
Tatum: When someone can just come out and tell me I should not be wearing Crocs, and is so adamant about it, she completely convinced me and I never wear Crocs anymore.
Kravitz: I was just trying to be a good friend, Chan.
Tatum:I get it, but I totally loved Crocs for a hot second, and in one hang she was like, ‘You can’t ever do that again.’ And I said, ‘OK, fine.’
Kravitz: Just to be clear, there are people out there who can pull off the Crocs thing; I just wasn’t sure you were one of them.
Of course, the fact that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will only be a stop on this road only makes the film more exiting. It’s not only going to take these characters forward but it will also set up the next steps, and we can only begin to imagine what that will be. Since we’re literally dealing with multiverse concepts, basically anything is possible. And this also does leave open the possibility of a WandaVision Season 2. If the story is going to go someplace after Multiverse of Madness there’s no reason to assume that a second season Disney+ isn’t at least possible.
This may seem like a ton of movies, but this list barely scratches the surface of all the great titles featured on Paramount+. In addition to all the previously mentioned films, the streaming service also has great comedies like Let it Ride, Election, and Tropic Thunder, out-there ‘90s movies like eXistenZ, Trainspotting, and Face/Off, a whole lot of romance with the likes of Romeo and Juliet, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and Grease Live, and then Samuel L. Jackson greats like Shaft.
If you want even more streaming options after reading about all these great films, take a look at our lists on the best movies on Netflix and best Amazon Prime movies, both of which are updated regularly.

Leslie Odom Jr. may have have been the one to win the Tony Award for Hamilton but that musical won many other awards because of the combined work of a number of performers on the stage, as well as the design team and crew. Leslie Odom Jr. made his feature film debut in Redtails, a movie about the Tuskegee Airmen, where he played one of several pilots. He also recently appeared in Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express, a film that is, much like the Knives Out sequel, a whodunit with an incredibly impressive cast.
