We have been waiting months to hear more about Jordan Peele’s latest flick, and thankfully today (July 22) we’re getting a little more information. Just a little though.
The filmmaker revealed the title and the first poster for his next project. The movie is titled ‘Nope‘ and it’s set to star Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun. As most of you know, Peele previously worked with Oscar-winner Kaluuya on his debut feature, Get Out.
Check out the poster below…
What does it mean? No idea. We don’t really know anything else about the project, beyond the cast, title, release date and this poster.
He didn’t even provide us with a logline, and he probably won’t for a long time. We probably won’t get more information until the trailer drops sometime early next year, at least that’s our best guess.
Of note, on the IMDB page for this project, there’s an actor credited as a “Fry’s Customer” and an actor credited as “Kid Sheriff”
What does that tell us? Not sure. Fry’s was a big box electronics store, which recently shut down all stores due to the changes in the retail industry and COVID-19. So it’s possible one of the characters works at a Fry’s, or maybe some aliens take over a store. Or maybe all the electronics in the world cause some sort of mayhem.
I DON’T KNOW! WHY IS THERE A KID SHERIFF? We’ll just have to wait for more answers.
While most studios are solely focused on sequels/remakes, Pixar has been out here taking chances. After the release of Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4 in 2018/2019, the studio has been focused on original material.
They released Onward and Soul in 2020, both original films. And their next feature, Luca, is also an original idea.
The original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.
This film was directed by Enrico Casarosa, and he told reporters that this story is deeply personal for him, because he’s also a sea monster from another world.
No, really. It’s a personal story for him because it’s set in the Italian Riviera, where he grew up.
This is a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often set the course of who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in Luca.
Pixar just released the new poster you see below for the film. It’s currently scheduled to be released on June 18. It’s not clear if it’ll be released on Disney+ or theaters…or both.
Most movie releases have been pushed back, due to the theaters being closed all across the world, but that doesn’t mean the party has to end completely.
We still have streaming platforms like Netflix, and thank God for that. They most recently provided us with Love is Blind and the incredible Tiger King documentary, and now they’re getting us ready for an action flick starring Chris Hemsworth.
Extraction, which is set to hit the streaming giant on April 24, stars Hemsworth as Tyler Rake, “a mercenary who’s tasked with liberating the son of a crime boss who has been kidnapped.”
This film marks the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave, who previously worked as a stunt coordinator on several big action flicks. The movie was written by Joe Russo, one half of the Russo brothers.
Wes Anderson, the filmmaker responsible for films like Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Bottle Rocket, is just about ready to release his latest film, The French Dispatch.
Searchlight Pictures released the first poster for the film this week, and you can definitely tell it’s a Wes Anderson flick. This poster works for no other filmmaker.
The plot of this movie has been kept under wraps, but we do know it “brings to life a collection of stories from the fictional issue of an American magazine published in a fictional 20th-century French city.”
This project has an impressive cast, which includes Timothee Chalamet, Owen Wilson, Frances McDormand, Jeffrey Wright, Benicio Del Toro and Tilda Swinton.
Anderson reportedly worked with a $25 million budget, which is the same budget he had for Grand Budapest Hotel.
The French Dispatch is scheduled to hit theaters July 24, 2020.
Not much is known about the plot at this point, but Charlize Theron is expected to return as Cipher, the villain of The Fate of the Furious. (That doesn’t necessarily mean she’s the villain of this movie; Fast bad guys have a habit of turning face after a movie or two.)
The previous film, Fate of the Furious, was not received well by critics or the general audience, but it still made over $1 billion worldwide.
And as long as they keep seeing box office results, they will continue to pump these films out.
‘A Quiet Place‘ was released back in 2018. The thriller/horror was a hit with just about everyone. The film has a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and made a cool $340 million against a budget under $25 million.
And obviously with success like that, you knew there was going to be a sequel. And just like the first film, this sequel was directed/written by John Krasinski.
Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe have all returned for this sequel. The official synopsis reads:
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path
You can check out the teaser trailer below. The full trailer is expected to drop on New Year’s Day. It’ll hit theaters March 20, 2020.
Another live-action adaptation of a literary classic? You got it! Coming right up.
The first trailer and poster for 20th Century Fox’s ‘The Call of the Wild‘ film have arrived. Harrison Ford stars as John Thornton, but all eyes will be on the dog Buck, who is the real star of the film.
A big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s.
Chris Sanders is directing the film, which is significant because it’ll be his first live-action flick. He previously directed Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon, and The Croods.
In addition to Ford, this film will also star Dan Stevens, Karen Gillan, and Omar Sy.
The Call of the Wild will hit theaters February 21, 2020. Check out the trailer below…
Dwayne Johnson, one of the biggest movie stars in the world, is planning for the future. It was announced this week that his superhero movie spinoff of ‘Shazam!’ will hit theaters Christmas 2021.
He also shared a poster for the ‘Black Adam‘ film on his Instagram page, writing, “I’m honored to join the iconic #DCUniverse and it’s a true pleasure to become, BLACK ADAM. This role is unlike any other I’ve ever played in my career and I’m grateful to the bone we’ll all go on this journey together. BLACK ADAM 12.22.21″
Production on the film will reportedly begin in June of 2020, which means the movie will likely have a long post-production process.
This gig has been a long time coming for Johnson. He’s been linked to the character for over a decade now. Even though he’s starred in some seriously huge blockbuster films, this has to be one of the most special moments of his career.
