The first trailer for the second season of The Mandalorian arrived earlier this week. And we took a deep dive into the first footage frame-by-frame. However, a more eagle-eyed fan picked up on a detail that we missed. And it appears to show evidence of the return of Boba Fett – or at least his armor. That’s all we’ll say up here. If you want the more details with spoilers, you’ll have to keep reading below. You’ve been warned!

The shot from The Mandalorian season 2 trailer which seems to contain evidence of Boba Fett is this one:
On the surface, it’s just a quick shot of Mando flying away on a speeder bike. But if you take a closer look, there’s probably a reason that the shot comes and goes so quickly.

Twitter user Calvin Pine (@JayGatspy) posted the following images in response to Making Star Wars:

If you look at the shot, you can make out the distinct shape and colors of Boba Fett’s jetpack. The only thing missing is the projectile missile that usually sticks out of the top. But it’s not unreasonable to assume that maybe it misfired while he was being eaten by the Sarlaac in the Great Pit of Carkoon. I’m less convinced that the other shape is the helmet of Boba Fett, but only because of the lack of discernible details. But if the jetpack is there, the helmet probably is too, so we’ll go with it.

Another answer could lie in a story from Star Wars Legends, specifically J.D. Montgomery’s short story “A Barve Like That: The Tale of Boba Fett” for the Star Wars: Tales from Jabba’s Palace book. The short story revealed that Boba Fett crafted a telepathic connection with one of the Sarlacc’s former victims to convince the creature to eat his jetpack, resulting in an explosion. I’m not sure why it couldn’t be as easy as the jetpack misfiring. Especially after he was launched into the pit by Han Solo inadvertently triggering it with a staff, but whatever.

Quote:The question is, how does Boba Fett’s armor end up in the hands of The Mandalorian. And why isn’t the grown-up clone wearing it himself? Well, that’s a little more complicated, because when we first see Boba Fett’s armor in The Mandalorian season 2, it isn’t worn by Han Solo’s nemesis.

In case you missed it back in May, Timothy Olyphant is playing a character in The Mandalorian who was originally introduced in Chuck Wendig’s Star Wars: Aftermath book series. Going by the name of Cobb Vanth, the character is the self-appointed sheriff of the Tatooine-based settlement Freetown. In the books, he’s wearing a mysterious set of Mandalorian armor that was acquired from Jawas who scavenged the wreckage of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi. It’s been assumed that armor belonged to Boba Fett.

It’s likely that Mando crosses paths with Cobb Vanth and reclaims the Mandalorian armor. Does he know of Boba Fett? Or is he just returning the armor of who he believes is a fallen fellow Mandalorian? We’re not sure. But there’s a chance that we’ll see Boba Fett reclaim this armor since actor Temuera Morrison has been said to return as the bounty hunter in this season of The Mandalorian. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how all that plays out. And what impact it has on the trajectory of Mando’s story.

The Mandalorian season 2 debuts on Disney+ on October 302020.

Meet She-HulkTatiana Maslany. The Orphan Black star has joined the Disney+ show as the eponymous green-hued lawyer/superhero. Maslany’s casting comes on the heels of the announcement that Kat Coiro would be directing several episodes of the show, including the pilot. Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao is in charge of the writer’s room for the series. Which Disney+ hopes to premiere in 2022.

[Image: She-Hulk-Tatiana.jpg]

Deadline is reporting that Tatiana Maslany has been cast as She-Hulk.  In the comics, She-Hulk is Jennifer Walters.

Quote:“A lawyer who, after an injury. Received an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin. Bruce Banner, and acquired a milder version of his Hulk condition. As such, Walters becomes a large, powerful green-hued version of herself; however, unlike Banner, she still largely retains her personality – in particular, she retains the majority of her intelligence and emotional control, although like Hulk, she is still susceptible to outbursts of temper and becomes much stronger if enraged. In later issues of the comics, her transformation is permanent.”

Maslany has won acclaim for her work on Orphan Black. So having her join the world of Marvel is bound to be a big attention-getter. I guess the big question now is: how will She-Hulk appear as a character? Unlike the Hulk, She-Hulk remains in her hulked-out form all the time. So are they going to slather Maslany in green make-up, or will the part be digitally created, with Maslany performing motion-capture/voice work? I guess we’ll see.

The other day it was reported that Kat Coiro was set to direct the pilot episode as well as several other episodes of the show. Coiro’s credits include episodes of It’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaDead to MeBrooklyn Nine-Nine, and more, as well as the upcoming feature Marry Me. So She-Hulk joins a growing line-up of Marvel shows on Disney+, including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, due out this year; WandaVision, set for December; Loki, coming early 2021; What If…?, which is set for mid-2021; and the following, which are all scheduled for 2022: HawkeyeMs. Marvel, and Moon Knight.

Delroy Lindo gives one of the year’s best performances in Da 5 Bloods. So it’s only fitting that Netflix has decided to push for a Best Actor Oscar nomination. The streaming service could’ve hedged their bets and tried to campaign Lindo for Best Supporting Actor. But will instead save that for the rest of the film’s cast: Jonathan MajorsClarke PetersNorm LewisIsiah Whitlock, Jr., and the late Chadwick Boseman.

I try to stay out of Oscar punditry because I find it rather crass. And I hate turning movies into sporting events. But in case you’re unaware of this, let me give you a super-quick crash-course on “category fraud”. You see, the Oscars are a game. If you’ve gone this far in life assuming the Academy awards people simply on merit, you are sorely mistaken. There’s an entire system in place, almost like politics, involving campaigning and flesh-pressing and all sorts of other frivolities. And studios are happy to play along because they want that Oscar glory.

As a result, studios like to get strategic around with who gets nominated based on the odds of who could win what. Because of this, they’ll often push people who are clearly leads in supporting categories. For example: even though Cate Blanchett plays the titular role in Carol, Rooney Mara is clearly the lead of that film. The movie is almost entirely from her perspective, and she’s in more scenes. And yet, when the Academy Award season rolled around that year, Mara got pushed – and was nominated for – Best Supporting Actress. The reasoning: the Weinstein Company (ugh) wanted to campaign Cate Blanchett for lead. And they didn’t want to have two people from the same film competing for the same Oscar.

That’s just one quick example. It happens all the time, and when Da 5 Bloods came out and Delroy Lindo began earning rave reviews for his performance. I began to see the Oscar pundits theorizing which category he could be nominated in. Especially since there are so many other major parts in the film. There was a concern among the people who care about these sort of things that Netflix would campaign Lindo for Supporting Actor. Even though the case can be made that he has the biggest, most essential part in the film.

Well, no one needs to worry about that anymore, because Variety has confirmed Netflix will campaign Lindo for Best Actor, while the rest of the cast – Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., and Chadwick Boseman – will be campaigned for Best Supporting Actor. While there’s no guarantee Lindo will actually get the nomination, he really should. Not only does he give a phenomenal performance. But he’s also long overdue for award season recognition for his years of exemplary work.

This is an all-star cast remake of King Hu’s 1967 classic “Dragon Inn”. The story is basically the same, but with a macabre, dark twist and a love triangle thrown in.

[Image: tanlong.jpg]

Tsao Siu-yan is a powerful eunuch, the ruthless leader of the East Chamber, a security agency of the Ming Dynasty Emperor. The movie kicks off with him overseeing the butchering of some officers by his army. Yang is one of them being executed, meanwhile his two children are exiled and escorted to the desert border. This is actually Tsoa’s cunning plot to lure out Yang’s trusted general Chow Wai-on.

However, it is Yau Mo-yan, a rebel swordswoman who rescues the children and guarding them across the desert to safety. Consequently, they take refuge in Dragon Gate Inn (Tan Long Mon Khach San) while waiting for Chow to join them. However, Tsao and his army are not far behind and this eventually accumulates in a crash between the rebels and the East Chamber. A big battle is ensure. But will those rebels survive the ordeal. And what is the fate of those poor children?

[Image: tanlong.jpeg]

Donnie Yen (Chung Tu Don) really camps up his role as eunuch Tsao Siu-yan. However, he sort of disappears during the middle part of the movie. But reappears to engage in the unavoidable final fight at the end. Ironically, his face off is with three non-martial arts stars so don’t expect him to go all out doing hand to hand like in the Ip Man movies.

Tony Leung Kar-fai is terrific as Chow Wai-on, the rebel resistance fighter and he does look the part, casually riding a camel through the desert and proceeds on to save the day. The rebel swordswoman, Yau Mo-yan, who rescues the children, is played by Brigitte Lin. She’s actually Chow’s lover and this is where the movie adds the love interest aspect. Both of them have great, sexually charge chemistry and it’s a pleasure to watch them on the screen, even the parts when they hardly talk.

[Image: tanlong1.jpg]

Maggie Cheung (Truong Man Ngoc) plays Jade, the tarty owner of Dragon Gate Inn who runs it as a ‘black inn’. She flirts, seduces her male customers and eventually kills them, before they end up in her kitchen and become part of the menu. This is the macabre element which is a total contrast to King Hu’s movie. However, Maggie is so good here that she absolutely steals the movie every time she’s on the screen. In fact, the best part of the movie is her duel with Brigitte’s character. Yau Mu-yan where they try to steal each other’s clothes. It is a witty confrontation with some light raunchiness and a delight to behold. Indecently, Tony, Maggie and Brigitte team up again in Wong Kar-wei’s “Ashes of Time” in 1994. Another visually stunning wuxia movie.

[Image: tanlong2.jpg]

The desert setting of “Dragon Gate Inn” is another big plus. The desert colours come into play to bring out the sense of remoteness and urgency. Tony Ching Siu-tung is the action choreographer; the action is fast and more of the acrobatic type rather than the hand to hand combat. However, he makes all the non-martial arts stars look good when they fight. Together with producer Tsui Hark, they have created a beautiful looking movie with break neck kinetic action.

[Image: tanlongmon.jpg]

“Dragon Gate Inn” is a fantasy wuxia tale about heroism, chivalry among resistance fighters. A movie full of beautiful visuals with an equally tense atmosphere. To top it off, it has plenty of witty dialogue, some well-placed dark humor and the acting from all cast members is hard to fault. Overall, a very entertaining movie and a must watch.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had their big on-screen reunion after decades and it was something straight out of a ‘wild’ fantasy.

Hollywood’s former sweethearts sat down for table read of the 1982 cult teen comedy, ‘Fast Times At Ridgemont High’, along with actors Sean PennJulia RobertsShia LaBeoufMatthew McConaughey, John Legend, with narration by Morgan Freeman.

Brad and Jen, who have been plagued with romance rumours since their big reunion backstage at the SAG awards, surprised all as they read aloud a raunchy scene from the coming-of-age teen drama.

“Hi, Brad,” said Jennifer, who played high school 'sex queen' Linda Barrett.

"You know how cute I always thought you were. I think you're so sexy. Will you come to me?" she continued as Freeman readout explicit details of the day-dream sequence.

While the actress struggled to keep a straight face through the reading, Brad blushed brightly. Finding it impossible to hold back their laughter, Julia, Matthew, Sean and even Jimmy Kimmel gave in and beamed watching the former couple work together.

Their highly anticipated on-screen reunion came 19 years after Brad made a guest appearance on Jennifer’s hit television show in 2001.

The couple who wed in 2000 and separated in 2005, never worked together on a feature film.

The virtual event served as a fundraiser for humanitarian organizations in their bid to raise funds for COVID-19 relief efforts.

In the summer of 2019, word came out that a new Saw movie starring Chris Rock was in the works. Causing several of us to do a double-take. “Wait a second,” we said. “Chris Rock? Like…the Chris Rock? In a new Saw movie? And it’s based on his own idea? How on Earth did that happen?”

[Image: spiral.jpg]

Well, it took more than a year, but now we finally have an answer – and weirdly. So it involves an unlikely movie directed by Tyler Perry.

The Origin Story of the New Chris Rock Saw Movie

The Hollywood Reporter has published a profile of Chris Rock in the lead-up to the premiere of FX’s Fargo season 4 (which he stars in and called “the best part [he’s] ever had”), and that piece recounts the amazing story of how Rock’s 2014 comedy Top Five led him on the journey to making Spiral: From the Book of Saw:

Quote:“When Rock was writing Top Five, he included a scene in which his character, a giant comedy star desperate to be taken seriously, is humiliated by long lines for a made-up Tyler Perry movie called Boo! while his wrenching slavery drama bombs. Somebody from Lionsgate, which distributes Perry’s movies, suggested Perry actually make a movie called Boo!, which, incredibly, he did. It was a runaway success that begat a sequel, both of which used art from the Top Five version. A truly weird case of life imitating art imitating life — and wait, it gets weirder.

Not long after, Rock ran into the head of Lionsgate’s film group at a friend’s wedding and remarked to him, half-jokingly, that he’d never seen a cent from Boo! “I don’t even think I got a special thanks,” he says now. “And I’m not complaining, I’m just saying, I’ve seen a bone thrown for a lot less.” The conversation got friendlier from there, as Rock complimented the studio’s Saw horror franchise and, having given it no prior thought, suggested they make the next one in the comedic style of [Eddie] Murphy’s 48 Hours. A few weeks later, he got a call from Saw producer Mark Burg, and a deal was struck for Rock to not only help develop such an idea but also to star.

The whole thing with Boo! is sort of like if Adam Sandler decide to actually make that fake big-headed baby movie after Funny People. So I can’t get over the fact that the Boo! movies actually used art created in Top Five. I desperately tried to find that clip of Rock’s character outside the theater so I could embed it here, but sadly came up short. But man, I’ve heard some bizarre stories about movies getting greenlit in Hollywood, and this is right up there near the top.

A new Disney+ trailer previewing what's to come reveals Marvel's WandaVision is arriving soon.

[Image: Wandavision.jpg]

Fear not, Marvel fans as WandaVision is still coming this year. The upcoming live-action series is one of the first in a new batch of shows that will tie in more directly to the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Given what is going on in the industry right now there had been doubts as to whether or not it would still arrive on time. While no firm release date has been set a new trailer previewing what's to come on Disney+ this fall confirms that the series is indeed coming down the pipeline before year's end.

The video serves as a preview of the entire slate coming to Disney+ this fall. WandaVision is included. Which is Disney publicly saying that the show is going to be here on time. If not ahead of time. Originally, the series had been set to arrive in December following the debut of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in August. However, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan's series got bumped back due to production delays brought on by the shutdown. Since this is a fall preview, it is not a reach to assume WandaVision could be coming in the fall, which would be sooner than expected. But without a firm release date confirmation. All that can be said for sure is that it isn't being pushed to 2021.

Disney+ Fall Preview Trailer

Elizabeth Olsen is set to reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff, with Paul Bettany returning as Vision. Given his death at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. It remains a bit unclear how that is going to work. From what little footage we've seen the show will be taking a cue from classic sitcoms. While also adding some trippy spectacle into the equation. It has also been confirmed that William and Thomas. The twin children of Wanda and Vision from the pages of Marvel Comics, will be included. With the 2020 release firmed up. We should expect a full-length trailer sooner rather than later.

Matt Shakman is directing the show with Black Widow screenwriter Jac Schaeffer set as the head writer. The cast includesTeyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Randall Park (Agent Jimmy Woo) and Kathryn Hahn in a mystery role. This is one of several new live-action shows being developed for the streaming service. Which will see Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige heavily involved. They will also carry budgets said to be comparable to a blockbuster movie. Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight are also in various stages of development.

The preview also includes upcoming Disney+ originals such as Black BeautyThe Right Stuff and Clouds, while classics like Big, Bend It Like Beckham and X2- X-Men United are also coming to the streaming service before the end of 2020. Not to mention The Mandalorian season 2. Which recently revealed its first trailer and is easily the buzziest title of the bunch. But if WandaVision does indeed beat The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to the punch, that will be right up there in terms of anticipation. You can check out the full preview from the Disney+ Twitter.
