A new TV spot for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit the web today and among other things, it sees Leia with a lightsaber.
Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman finally arrived on Netflix this week. The highly-anticipated and long-in-development gangster film sees Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci reuniting for the first time since Casino and it’s also the first time Scorsese and Al Pacino have ever worked together (if you can believe it).
Up until this year, Natalie Portman had a rather rocky relationship with Marvel Studios. Jane Foster was generally considered a fairly boring character who was just ‘Thor’s girlfriend.’ Portman was also reportedly unhappy with Patty Jenkins’ decision to quit Thor: The Dark World and became frustrated with Jane not being given much to do. So, it wasn’t a huge surprise when she didn’t appear in Thor: Ragnarok and her cameo in Avengers: Endgame was digitally composited from unused footage.
One of the biggest questions audiences had after Joker was how Batman would fit into this new universe. The film dropped enough hints about the future of the character: showing Arthur Fleck meeting a young Bruce Wayne and the riot he inspired indirectly leading to Thomas and Martha Wayne’s murder. It seems inevitable that any Joker sequel will have to deal with the introduction of Batman and his ties with Arthur Fleck/Joker.
There are two characters who haven’t featured prominently in the marketing for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, for obvious reasons. Both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa are set to return in Episode IX yet either haven’t been seen in the flesh in the trailers (Luke) or have been absent from previous posters (Luke and Leia). But this new IMAX one-sheet for the movie makes a change and includes them alongside leads Rey and Kylo Ren.
It seems that the buzz surrounding the Snyder Cut of Justice League isn’t going away anytime soon. The movement has been dominating social media to mark the two-year anniversary of the movie’s theatrical release, and seems to be gaining more momentum than ever before. Snyder himself has been the ringleader, sharing countless images from his original vision of the superhero blockbuster in an effort to continue drumming up support.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart have struck up quite the dynamic in recent years, with the two completely opposite-sized movie stars appearing together in Central Intelligence, Hobbs & Shaw, Jumanji and the upcoming sequel The Next Level. The two are close friends off-screen as well and are constantly poking fun at each other on social media, while Johnson even stepped in to cover some of Hart’s media engagements when the latter was injured in a serious car crash.
As one of the most popular stars in the movie business, one that’s enjoying a huge career renaissance after a recent string of critical and commercial hits, Keanu Reeves is arguably more in demand now than at any other point in his decades-long Hollywood career.
We’ve spoken to a few people who saw early test screenings of Sonic the Hedgehog and they said the original design made it look like a horror show.
