Patty Jenkins will exit Wonder Woman movies after making the third one.

Patty Jenkins Gave the DCEU one of its few bright spots with her 2017 take on Wonder Woman. The acclaimed filmmaker is now returning to the world of superheroes with the much-delayed and highly-anticipated sequel Wonder Woman 1984. In an interview with the German publication Geek. Jenkins revealed that she will likely be saying farewell to the world of the Amazonian superhero after one more movie.

Quote:"The next one (WW3) is probably my last Wonder Woman movie. So I have to put everything I want to show there. We have to think carefully."

While comic book movie fans will no doubt be disappointed to lose the director who built up such goodwill towards a character that had been shortchanged for decades, it makes sense for Jenkins to bid adieu to the franchise after having already given it her all in the first three films. Especially when it came to Wonder Woman 1984. Patty Jenkins spoke about how the movie allowed her to expand Princess Diana's backstory in ways the original Wonder Woman could not accommodate.

Quote:"WW84 gave me a chance to do a lot of things that I couldn't accommodate in the first movie. I was so happy to tell the Wonder Woman origin story. It was almost her birth, but we really haven't seen what she is capable of. It is exciting for me to show her at the peak of her strength. But it is also very important that she fights an internal struggle: she is a Goddess and tries to help humanity. She is not only someone who fights evil, she tries to show bad people how to improve. It's an interesting dilemma."

So it seems, much like Christopher Nolan was done with Batman after three movies. Jenkins will be done with Wonder Woman after three movies. And she already has a very clear idea of where she wants to take the character within the span of her three movies, as Jenkins had explained in an interview with Vanity Fair last year.

Quote:"I have pretty clear plans for Wonder Woman 3. Whether I [direct] it or not, I see how her arc should end in my incarnation of Wonder Woman. I have great passion for that."

The interesting thing about the Wonder Woman trilogy being planned by Jenkins is that it spans a greater time frame than any other superhero movie. The first took place during the height of the Second World War, the second takes place in the middle of the 1980s, while the last movie in the series is confirmed to be a contemporary tale that will finally bring Jenkin's version of Wonder Woman into the 21st century. But viewers will have to wait a good long while for the final part of the trilogy since even the release of the second film itself has been in such a state of flux.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman 1984 features a stellar lead cast comprising of Gal Gadot as Diana. Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva/Cheetah. Pedro Pascal as Maxwell Lord and Natasha Rothwell. The film is expected to release on October 2, 2020.

Fan art and photoshopped images are really selling The Umbrella Academy fans on Aidan Gallagher as the next Boy Wonder.

[Image: Aidan-Gallagher.jpg]

It seems like it's just a matter of time before a new version of the Boy Wonder appears in another live-action DC project. And many fans of The Umbrella Academy are calling for Aidan Gallagher to be the next Robin. Just days ago, the second season of The Umbrella Academy premiered on Netflix. Quickly earning great acclaim from big fans of the show. One of its brightest spots appears to be the performance of Gallagher as Number Five. And many people watching have already come up with the next role for Gallagher that would be perfect for the actor.

"So I started watching The Umbrella Academy last night. And the only thing on my mind is how perfect of a Robin Aidan Gallagher would make". One Netflix subscriber tweeted after tuning in to the show. Many other tweets echo these very same sentiments. With the Damian Wayne version of Robin specifically getting a lot of suggestions for Gallagher to play in some kind of DC project. On social media, photoshopped images of Gallagher wearing the Robin mask have also been making the rounds. And they've been doing a lot to really sell people on the idea. Interesting fan art photos of the fantasy casting are floating around as well.

Prior to his fan favorite role on The Umbrella Academy. Aidan Gallagher was known for starring as the titular Nicky in the Nickelodeon series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn. The series aired for 82 episodes across four seasons between 2014 and 2018. He was a fan favorite on that show as well. Earning two nominations for Favorite Male TV Star at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. A year after Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn ended. Gallagher began appearing on The Umbrella Academy for Netflix. Quickly becoming an even bigger star upon the success of the series.

Whether it's for a DC movie or a television series. It's clear that a lot of people would be stoked to see him take on Robin next. On the big screen. The last version of Robin we saw came in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises. Though we didn't actually see the character donning the tights and fighting crime. He had previously been portrayed by Chris O'Donnell in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.

As the second season of The Umbrella Academy is looking to be just as well-received with viewers as the original. There's a good chance that Netflix will renew the show for a third season. Given their history. It's obviously impossible to say for sure until an announcement formally make by the streamer. In any case, there's likely to be great things in the future for Gallagher. Whose fan base has grown tremendously since appearing on the popular Netflix show. You can take a look at some of the fan tweets calling for Gallagher's casting as Robin straight from Twitter below.

[Image: Changeland-Review-Seth_Green-Breckin_Mey...eviews.jpg]

I went into this film thinking it was a comedy about mishaps between two friends in Thailand, and I was so wrong! This was a beautiful tale about living life in the moment and really appreciating what you have rather than regret what you don’t.

Seth Green (“Robot Chicken (TV)”, “Austin Powers series”) stars as Brandon, a very emotionally numb man who decides to leave quietly on a trip to Thailand with his best friend, Dan, Breckin Meyer (“Clueless”, “Road Trip”). As the trip goes on, Brandon learns that he left a lot behind in life to focus on someone that never gave him love in return.
Seth Green shines in his directorial debut and proves that he’s just as capable behind the camera as he is in front of it. Green gives each character their moment and lets the beautiful scenery breathe. Like the characters, I was left in awe everywhere they went.
Green does a fantastic job as Brandon and portrays him with a very realistic personality. Brandon is someone who would rather go numb than approach reality, and I know that I’ve done that before. Green doesn’t get too many dramatic roles but this character reminded me of watching Michael Fassbender in “Shame”, but a way less grotesque version.
Meyer’s Dan was not essential, but I was glad he was there during Brandon’s journey. Dan is mostly there as a guide for Brandon’s past mistakes and makes sure the party is always there to lift his best friend.
The supporting cast is sufficient in their roles with Macaulay Culkin (“Party Monster”, “Home Alone”) being the standout. Culkin plays Ian, a tour guide who helps Brandon realize that life is worth living and not just thinking about what’s next. He still has his comedic timing and looks like he is having a blast in this role.
I felt like the writing was a bit off at times, but Green (credited as the only writer) definitely has a future with this type of storytelling. There were a few times I got emotional, but those were due to the performances rather than the writing. I felt like we got more from what he didn’t say rather than another conversation about what he should do next.
I really hope to see Green headline more films in the future, as this was a great representation of what he can with a dramatic piece. People may only know Green for being ‘Scott Evil’ but I hope they check this film out to see what ‘Scotty’ can really do.

As suggested by Venice Film Festival chief Alberto Barbera last week, the 77th edition has added to its lineup. Both Pedro Almodovar’s The Human Voice and Regina King’s One Night In Miami are now among the Out of Competition titles for the Lido event that runs September 2-12.

Almodóvar’s latest, a 30-minute adaptation of the original stage play by Jean Cocteau, was filmed and edited in record time as soon as the lockdown was lifted. Tilda Swinton, who is receiving the Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award in Venice, stars in the Spanish master’s first English-language project. It centers on a desperate woman who waits for the phone call of the lover who has just abandoned her.

One Night In Miami is King’s feature debut to which Amazon Studios recently acquired global rights, and adds to the American contingent in Venice. The story follows a young Cassius Clay (before he became Muhammad Ali) as he emerges from the Miami Beach Convention Center as the new World Heavyweight Boxing Champion. Against all odds, he has defeated Sonny Liston and shocked the sports world. While crowds of people swarm Miami Beach to celebrate the match, Clay — unable to stay on the island because of Jim Crow-era segregation laws — instead spends the night at the Hampton House Motel in one of Miami’s historically black neighborhoods, celebrating with three of his closest friends: activist Malcolm X, singer Sam Cooke and football star Jim Brown. The next morning, the four men emerge determined to define a new world for themselves and their people.

The film is based on Kemp Powers’ 2013 stage play and explores what happened during those pivotal hours. Eli Goree plays Clay, Kingsley Ben-Adir is Malcolm X, Aldis Hodge is Brown and Leslie Odom Jr plays Cooke. The film is also scheduled for Toronto.

Says King, “We are pinching ourselves to have been selected to be a part of the Venice Film Festival — such a prestigious festival. Excited to announce another step in this film’s journey.”

Almodóvar comments, “I am very excited about coming back to Venice in such a special year, with COVID-19 as involuntary guest. Everything will be different, and I am looking forward to discovering it in person. It is an honor to accompany Tilda in a year in which she is receiving a very much deserved award. As a matter of fact, The Human Voice is a festival of Tilda, a display of her infinite and assorted registers as an actress. It’s been a spectacle to direct her.”

“It is an extraordinary pleasure and a great honor to welcome Pedro Almodóvar back to Venice, a year after awarding him the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement, with his new film,” said Barbera. Of Miami, Barbera added, “Regina King’s film could not be more in step with the events of recent months and the importance of fighting against every form of racism that continues to prevail in our society. We are delighted that Venice can help to bring to public attention a film that is important for its content and confirms the talent of a great actress in her debut as a director.”

This complements a 2020 roster that is light on major studio titles with only Searchligh’s Nomadland and Sony’s The World To Come figuring in the competition, though the latter is an international acquisition. Overall this year, there is a very global/art house sense to the main lineup for the first major international film gathering since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

In early July, Venice organizers outlined certain changes owing to sanitary protocols imposed by the COVID crisis. The overall number of films in the official selection has been reduced, while the competitive sections will maintain their usual procedures and format, as will the Out of Competition section, and Biennale College Cinema — though social distancing will be imposed.

Also last week, Barbera shared with Deadline details of the process — and challenges — in building the lineup and preparing for the festival, saying “The fact that we had to work under huge uncertainty,” was the major difficulty during the months since the pandemic began, and even as he put the finishing touches on the roster.

It seems like Bond girl Ana de Armas will have to attend the premiere of 'No Time To Die' alone.
'No Time To Die', which is the latest installment of the spy franchise, is set to hit screens in the UK on November 12.

And according to the reports, the makers of the movie reportedly want Ana, who stars as Paloma, to walk the red carpet solo.


A source has claimed they want to keep all attention on the film's stars, including Daniel CraigRami MalekNaomie Harris and Lashana Lynch.

"This film premiere has been a long time coming and franchise bosses want the spotlight to be on the stars of the film," the source said.

"It would be a disaster if it was all about Ben Affleck's mushy PDAs with Ana overshadowing the event. A circus sideshow is strictly off the menu and the head honchos want to keep it all on-brand," added the source to a publication.

Ana and Ben met while they were filming the movie 'Deep Water' at the beginning of this year.

They have been publicly displaying their love for each other during walks near the actor's home.

A Moment of Romance is responsible for many a Hong Kong Cinema cliché. And indeed the film is itself far from original. A disaffected youth, a "good girl" romantic interest and a cartoonish villain all figure into the 1990 hit.

Director Benny Chan has his way with the clichés, and throws in enough slow motion, syrupy Cantopop montages and hyperemotional crescendos to tax even the most weepy audience member. However, regardless of its genre excess—or perhaps because of it—the film succeeds, and is even viewed a classic of its genre.

Andy Lau (Luu Duc Hoa) is Wah Dee, a tough triad member who gets drawn into a spiraling circle of events. He's picked by fellow gangmember Trumpet (Tommy Wong) to be the getaway driver in a jewel heist, but things don't go as planned. The getaway is chaotic, and Dee takes a rich student, Jojo (Wu Chien-Lien), hostage to make good his escape. Trumpet wants her dead, as she's seen their faces, but Dee lets her live, saying that he'll be responsible for her. Presumably, Dee believes she'll let them off in exchange for her life, but he doesn't even posit such an exchange. He merely puts her on his bike, takes her home, and lets her go. He's like a Chinese Clint Eastwood, only he rides bikes and looks like Andy Lau.

[Image: thiennhuoc1.jpg]

Unfortunately, things are not that easy. The cops find Jojo's purse at the crime scene and drag her in for questioning. She still won't identify the robbers, but Trumpet doesn't want to take any chances. Dee rescues her again from Trumpet's clutches, but the seeds are sown. With an internal gang war brewing, Trumpet wants Dee dead, and the cops (led by Lau Kong) want him brought in. And, Jojo wants his affections.

The "good girl loves bad boy" scenario is far from new. But A Moment of Romance (Thien Nhuoc Huu Tinh) is far more than a teenybopper romantic fantasy. Dee is a through-and-through triad, meaning he's not averse to violence or criminal activity. But there's a basic morality within him that prevents him from simply doing away with Jojo. His existence reveals itself to be one of resigned self-loathing. He's not happy with his life, but sees no real exit. It's that internal angst that drives him to reject Jojo at first, and even to mistreat her in hopes that she'll leave. Eventually he accepts her love, but the choice is not made frivolously. It's handled quietly, and with a subtle emotional weight.

Not that A Moment of Romance is devoid of the grandoise cinematic flourishes that characterized most Hong Kong films (phim hanh dong xa hoi den) of the day. There's a large helping of slow motion, romanticized visuals and overblown Cantopop tunes that line the way, but Benny Chan manages to use all of the above without alienating his audience. The core emotions that the film mines are so innately compelling that they're not lost beneath bombastic montages or sudden flashes of gangland violence. The actors neither overplay nor underplay the material, and inhabit their roles perfectly.

[Image: thiennhuoc.jpg]

None of the above would matter, however, if it weren't for the character of Wah Dee or Andy Lau's performance. Saving, and even loving Jojo may reaffirm part of Dee's humanity, but his decisions have believable and compelling consequences. The affirmation of Dee's morality comes with a price, and only one outcome is truly possible. Andy Lau brings a righteous anger and hidden tenderness to an exceptional genre character. What's so compelling about the character and the performance is that Wah Dee acts and doesn't talk. The filmmakers go the character and action route in telling this story. And the result is far better than what you'd expect from this genre.

Charlize Theron shares a video of shaving her head for Mad Max Furiosa Role.

[Image: Mad-Max-Charlize-Theron.jpg]

As Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron played the most kickass female protagonist of a Hollywood movie since Ellen Ripley in Alien. Theron recently took a trip down memory lane, and shared a video on Instagram of herself getting her long locks shaved off in preparation for the role with the following message.

https://www.instagram.com/charlizeafrica/

Quote:"In honor of our @ctaop drive-in screening of Mad Max tonight, throwing it back to the point of no return with creating Furiosa. A huge thank you to @thegrovela and @CHCre8tive for making tonight happen! So excited to see this movie on the big screen again."

The actress shared the video as part of a promotion for her celebrity charity event screening of Mad Max: Fury Road on Friday night on the roof of The Grove parking lot. The event, which was a joint effort of TheronŢs nonprofit CTAOP (Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project). The Caruso property and event agency CH Cre8tive, was meant to offer a new way to hold charity functions in the age of social distancing.

Aisha Tyler was also present for the function as the emcee, along with Theron's Fury Road co-star Nicholas Hoult. The two also took part in a pre-screening Q&A moderated by the New York Times' Kyle Buchanan, during which Theron noted the similarity between the fashion style of their post-apocalyptic movie and the world as it actually is today.

Quote:"We're basically dressed like Tom Hardy in the film. We're wearing muzzles to protect ourselves. I always felt like this story was a cautionary tale. It feels so imminent. The story of the search for community and belonging and finding your tribe really resonated with me. We need to do better. We need to take care of each other."

Starting out as a dramatic actress with an Academy Award for her performance in Monster. Charlize Theron is today known as an action movie icon. With star-making turns in Fury Road, Atomic Blonde. And the most recent The Old Guard. The actress' star has never been higher. And she made good use of her celebrity at the drive-in charity event, with proceeds going towards helping CTAOP fight HIV in Africa, and in aid of the 'Together for Her' campaign committed to stopping gender-based violence during the lockdown.

While Furiosa has stood the test of time as her own separate character. She will be portrayed in her upcoming solo movie by a different, younger actress. In the past, Theron has expressed sadness over the fact that her time as Furiosa is over. But she remains grateful for getting to portray her in the first place.

Quote:"Yeah, it's a little heartbreaking, for sure. I really love that character, and I'm so grateful that I had a small part in creating her. She will forever be someone I think of and reflect on fondly. Obviously, I would love to see that story continue. And if he feels like he has to go about it this way, then I trust him in that manner. We get so hung up on the smaller details that we forget the thing that we emotionally tap into has nothing to do with that minute thing that we're focusing on."

Wolf Warrior II, the sequel of Wolf Warrior (Chien Lang 1), is a patriotic superhero film that features and is directed by Wu Jing. And it's such a massive production you really feel like you're watching a big budget Hollywood film. Don't worry if you haven’t seen the first film, it won't take the enjoyment out of this one.

[Image: chienbinhsoi21.jpg]

Previously a soldier of the Chinese Special Forces. Leng Feng (Wu Jing of Ngo Kinh) was discharged from the army for attacking the boss of a company who assaulted the family of one of Leng's late comrades and had to serve three years in military prison. Upon his release, Leng leaves for Africa to work as a mercenary where a civil war breaks out. Leng volunteers to single-handedly rescue those trapped in a hospital and a factory. Not only because of his own heroism. But because of something deeply personal to him.

[Image: wolf-warriors-2.jpg]

Confused? Yeah, don't expect this film about a nationalistic hero to make too much sense or to be very believable. Leng is able to fight with so many weapons - guns, knives, bow and arrow ... logs (?!). And, of course, bare hands, just to name a few - and can also fight underwater for a good amount of time. Apparently breathing isn't a thing for him. However, he's also a character you want to root for because he's an ideal. But traditional Chinese male figure who's athletic, masculine, brave, observant and intelligent. He always puts women and children's safety first, and cares for everyone regardless of whether they're Chinese or not.

Considering the violence and tension of the film. The beautiful landscape shots can feel like a misfit to the overall atmosphere of Wolf Warrior II(Chien Binh Soi 2). The scenery also doesn't add to the story or to its plot development; it's really just there to be showing off. The ending of the film can also feel very much like propaganda for China, which may be a bit off-putting for some people.

[Image: wolf-warrior-2-1.jpg]

If action movies (phim hanh dong 2020) with a lot of death, blood and gore are you thing. You'll enjoy this sequel. Unlike many films of its genre. Wolf Warrior II is complicated but it's held together by a tight plot and excellent performances and stunt choreography. Wu gives an impressive performance as the eternally loyal and undefeatable fighter, and his martial arts work is wonderful. Music uses well to captivate the audience and keep them engaged even during scenes where not much is going on. There is also a good dose of brotherhood, love, and family in the story to satisfy our emotional sides. However, if violence in films bother you, give this one a miss. This review comes from Madaboutmoviez.com.

Vincent D'Onofrio thinks there's 'more to do' with Wilson Fisk. Noting it'd be 'awesome' to see Kingpin get his own movie.

[Image: Kingpin-Movie.jpg]

Who knows if we'll ever see more of Daredevil and its characters elsewhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But Vincent D'Onofrio would be totally on board for a Joker-style solo movie about his iconic character. Between 2015 and 2018, D'Onofrio shined on the hit Netflix series as Wilson Fisk. The criminal mastermind also known as Kingpin. The performance earned him a Saturn Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor and has been widely acclaimed by critics and fans as well.

Following Daredevil getting the rug pulled out from under it after three seasons.Fans have been hopeful that the show will one day continue with new episodes. Because the series is connected to the MCU, the door is also wide open for the characters to appear in other MCU projects. And that theoretically could include any of the upcoming Marvel movies. Because D'Onofrio's Kingpin is so popular, there are many fans who'd love to see the supervillain featured in a solo movie of his own. And D'Onofrio would apparently be all for it.

Quote:"Yeah, I mean, I think that'd be awesome," Vincent D'Onofrio told ComicBook.com in a recent interview. "I think there's more to do with him, but you just never know... Because when I think of Marvel, I think of so many storylines. It's like you think of DC, it's the same thing. There are so many stories. I can't imagine being in that chair trying to figure out which ones are the ones to be told next. And that's how I look at it, as a creative person. I see it much bigger than just my part. I just see it as these huge opportunities."

This follows previous comments from earlier this month on Twitter. Where D'Onofrio addressed the still-uncertain potential future of the Kingpin character. "Who knows if Fisk will come back? I definitely don't know a thing". The actor said in one tweet, responding to a fan begging for Kingpin to somehow return to the MCU. Similar tweets have been coming from fans asking for the same since Daredevil was canceled.

Another tweet from D'Onofrio responds to a ScreenRant article criticizing the potential return of Wilson Fisk. With the article suggesting that bringing back Kingpin would "ruin" the character's story arc. "You underestimate Marvel's Fisk," D'Onofrio said in the tweet. "Never underestimate any villain driven by their interior life. Screen rant, you know that deep in your heart anything can happen."

Of course, bringing back Kingpin is out of D'Onofrio's hands. But there's no doubt that a lot of Marvel fans would be incredibly happy if they got to see the Daredevil characters back in the MCU in some fashion. While a continued series would be ideal, seeing Fisk and the others back in any way would be awesome, even for brief appearances in MCU movies. There's no doubt that seeing a new Daredevil or even Kingpin movie would be amazing. But they would definitely have to be R-rated to maintain the spirit of the Netflix series.

Original X-Men movie almost had Gambit as part of the Mutant team.

[Image: X-Men-2000-Gambit.jpg]

The original live-action X-Men movie came out two decades ago. But it's effects continue to be felt in modern comic book movies. In an interview with SYFY WIRE, one of the producers of the film, Ralph Winter, talked about his time spent on the project, revealing that fan-favorite X-Men member Gambit almost showed up in the very first movie itself of the long-running franchise.

Quote:"There was a long development process before I came on board. I came on board about six months into it. Everything was relatively in shape. We had to jettison some things... the Danger Room, other characters, Gambit... it was all favorite characters everyone had jammed in."

Since the film creators were mining from decades of X-Men comics, everyone had ideas for who the core team should consist of. With the character of Rogue in many ways being the center of the plot of the first X-Men movie, it seems like a no-brainer to also include her established love interest Gambit. But Winter believes the film needed to be extremely economical in sticking to introducing as few team members as possible to give time to the rest of the plot.

Quote:"In the beginning, it's hard to narrow the course so that you have enough characters to make it interesting, but not too many that you can't spend time introducing every character, every character's power, and every character's journey in the first installment... without making it boring. Even the large number we had was right on the edge of spending too much time setting them all up."

"They did a good job of introducing new characters as each movie came after that. We weren't thinking of multiple movies necessarily. We were just trying to get the first one out, make it successful and do it for the price point."

While Beast and Nightcrawler appeared in several subsequent X-Men movies, Gambit was not as lucky. X-Men Origins: Wolverine was the only film in the franchise to feature a cameo by the mutant superhero, and the bad reputation the project garnered upon release put a huge damper on any new movies the character could have appeared in.

That is not to say there is no audience interest in seeing Gambit in a live-action movie. In fact, all the way back in 2014, a standalone Gambit film was in development with Channing Tatum set to play the lead role. Unfortunately, the project was stuck in development hell for many years. And Disney officially canceled the movie in 2019 after acquiring the rights to the X-Men.

For his part, although Winter feels like the first X-Men film had to navigate a difficult path in terms of appealing to general audiences while also catering to hardcore fans who wanted to see their favorite X-Men on the big screen in traditional uniforms, he is ultimately satisfied with what they were able to pull off.

Quote:"I think it holds up. It does age a little bit in terms of some of the stuff that's there. I look at some of the things we pulled off, like Magneto and the cops. Some of that worked out really well. Some sequences could be better. On a whole, it feels pretty good as a starting movie. I feel better about X-Men 2. We had a bigger budget. We had more flexibility. A second time with the same director, crew, and cast, you can speed along. You know what people's strengths are and you can play to those. But it plays OK. I'm proud of X-Men. Happy to have my name on it."
