Sandra Bullock Reveals She’s Still Embarrassed By This Movie She Starred In Years Ago

Sandra Bullock has starred in a number of hit movies, but throughout the decades, she’s also had a few clunkers.

One of those being Speed 2: Cruise Control. The 1997 sequel to the beloved action flick ‘Speed‘ starred Bullock alongside Jason Patric as a couple trying to stop a Caribbean cruise ship from crashing into an oil tanker.

The original director of ‘Speed’ returned alongside Bullock, but Keanu Reeves did not. Years later, he talked about how he was confused by the script.

At the time, I didn’t respond to the script. I really wanted to work with Sandra Bullock, I loved playing Jack Traven, and I loved ‘Speed,’ but an ocean liner? I had nothing against the artists involved, but at that time I had the feeling it just wasn’t right.

And looking back at it now, Bullock feels the same. During a recent interview to promote ‘The Lost City‘ an interviewer brought up Speed 2, claiming he loved watching it as a kid.

Bullock admitted she’s embarrassed by the film…

I have one [that] no one came around to and I’m still embarrassed I was in. ‘Speed 2’ I’ve been very vocal about it. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island. That’s one I wished I hadn’t done and no fans came around that I know of, except for you.

The sequel was slammed by critics and it only made $164 million worldwide at the box office, which was nothing compared to the $350 million the original film brought in.

Personally, I think there should be a Speed 3 involving a rogue self-driving vehicle, but that’s just me.

Sandra Bullock Reveals She’s Taking A Break From Acting To Spend More Time With Family

Sandra Bullock is one of the more beloved actors in the world. I can’t think of a single person who dislikes her, and if there is someone out there who hates her, the problem is probably with them.

Unfortunately though, we might be seeing less of the 57-year-old actress. While promoting her upcoming comedy-action film ‘The Lost City’ she revealed that this might be her last movie for a while.

I take my job very seriously when I’m at work. And I just want to be 24/7 with my babies and my family. That’s where I’m gonna be for a while.

She says that when she’s on set, she’s fully on set. It’s an all day commitment, which means she often misses some important bonding time with her children. She has two kids, ages 12 and 10.

Bullock did not reveal how long the break will be, but she did hint that when her kids get closer to 16 or 17, she’ll probably make a comeback.

And if she holds true to that, we could be without Bullock for over five years! It’ll be interesting to see if she stays true to this. We have seen actors in the past try this same thing, only to come back one year later because their family couldn’t stand them just pacing around the house all day.

What do you think? How long will she last?

Sandra Bullock Is The Queen Of Netflix After The Success Of ‘The Unforgivable’

Sandra Bullock got in with Netflix before it was the cool thing to do. You’ll remember she helped bring Netflix its first legit blockbuster hit with Birdbox back in 2018.

The film had everyone talking for months, accumulating over 280,000,000 hours of watch time.

The high-concept horror thriller premiered in the fourth quarter of 2018, a time when Netflix film chief Scott Stuber was just building his slate. While he delivered a new movie every week in 2021, that was hardly the output from the film unit at the time, especially with a marquee name like Bullock. Social media and late night shows were abuzz over the novelty. Nearly a month after premiering, Kim Kardashian West told her Twitter followers she “really liked” the movie, and asked if anyone else had watched.

It’s currently ranked as the number two film premiere for a Netflix original behind only the action-comedy Red Notice.

And now, Bullock has another top 10 hit with the streaming giant. It was revealed this week that her mystery thriller ‘The Unforgivable‘ has been viewed 186,900,000 hours to date, which is good enough for number nine on Netflix’s top releases.

With the popularity of The Unforgivable, Bullock, 57, joins Ryan Reynolds in having two of her films ranked on Netflix’s collection of most popular films. Along with Red Notice, Reynolds, 45, also stars in 6 Underground, which pulled in 205,470,000 to rank at No. 6 on Netflix’s list. 

Bullock knows how to get the people’s attention. The film wasn’t exactly a hit with the critics, but the response from critics doesn’t really matter all that much when it comes to movies released on streaming platforms.

Most people will just browse through the site, find something that looks interesting, and click play.

And you have to admit, the logline for The Unforgivable is pretty intriguing…

Ruth Slater, a woman released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime and attempts to re-enter society. She must try to put her life back together again in a world that refuses to forgive her past.

Watch Sandra Bullock And Channing Tatum In First Trailer For ‘The Lost City’

Both Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum have proved they can lead an action-comedy flick. Tatum with 21 Jump Street and Bullock with Miss Congeniality.

Now, they’re joining forces for the upcoming action-comedy film, The Lost City. In the Paramount film, Bullock plays Loretta Sage, a novelist who has spent her career writing about exotic places in her romance-adventure books.

She’s reluctant to promote her new book because she’d rather spend her time in the bathtub while drinking Chardonnay with ice. Nevertheless, she agrees to go on tour with Alan (Tatum), the hunky cover model who serves as the face of her series, to meet fans and sell copies of her novel.

But of course, things don’t go as planned. During the promo trip, Bullock’s character is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire played by Daniel Radcliffe.

Tatum’s character wants to prove he’s more than just a pretty face, so he sets off to rescue her in the dangerous jungle.

Brad Pitt makes also makes an appearance in this movie, so there are some real heavy hitters involved here.

Check out the trailer below. The Lost City will hit theaters on April 15, 2022.

Check Out Sandra Bullock In The First Trailer For Upcoming Drama Film ‘The Unforgivable’

Sandra Bullock stars in a movie? We watch the movie. That’s just how the world works. Bullock has a starring role in the upcoming Netflix drama, The Unforgivable.

She plays an ex-con hoping for redemption after being released from behind bars. Check out the official synopsis from Netflix:

Released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, Ruth Slater (Bullock) re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.

Sounds like a different role for Bullock, so we’re looking forward to seeing a new side of her. This movie was directed by Nora Fingerschmidt. I don’t know much about Nora, but I do know she has a very cool last name,

The cast includes Vincent D’Onofrio, Linda Emond, Jon Bernthal and Richard Thomas.

Check out the trailer below. It’ll hit select theaters on November 24 followed by a release on Netflix on December 10.

Daniel Radcliffe Joins Sandra Bullock In ‘Lost City of D”

The upcoming romantic adventure drama ‘Lost City of D‘ just added to its already impressive cast.

According to a new report, Daniel Radcliffe has joined the project, and he will be playing a villainous role.

The Paramount flick stars Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum…

The story follows a reclusive romance novelist (Bullock) who was sure nothing could be worse than getting stuck on a book tour with her cover model (Tatum) until a kidnapping attempt sweeps them both into a cutthroat jungle adventure, proving life can be so much stranger, and more romantic, than any of her paperback fictions.

Patti Harrison and Da’Vine Joy Randolph will co-star in the movie, which is being directed by Adam and Aaron Nee.

Last we heard, it’s scheduled to be released inside theaters on April 15, 2022, so you still have a solid year of waiting.

In the meantime, you can catch Daniel Radcliffe in the 2020 thriller/drama, Escape From Pretoria.

But just be warned, he ain’t Harry Potter no more.

Check Out The Trailer For The Upcoming Thriller-Horror Film ‘Bird Box’ Starring Sandra Bullock

Back in 2009, Sandra Bullock won multiple awards for her starring role in ‘The Blind Side,’ and now in 2018…she’s actually blind. Or at least blindfolded.

In Netflix’s upcoming horror flick ‘Bird Box‘ Bullock plays a desperate mom trying to lead her kids to safety. You see, a mysterious creature has taken out most of the world’s population. If you lock eyes with this creature, you’ll die, which is where the voluntary blindness comes in.

Trevante Rhodes and John Malkovich also star in the movie, which on paper sounds like the opposite of A Quiet Place.

I must admit, it’s a pretty engaging premise, and Bullock always brings just the right amount of drama to her roles, so I am pretty hyped for this movie.

It’ll be released inside select theaters and on Netflix December 21, 2019. Check out the trailer below…

The First Trailer For ‘Ocean’s 8’ Has Arrived, Check Out The Madness Inside!

It feels like we’ve been hearing about this movie for years, and that’s probably because we have. They started promoting this movie back in 2015, teasing the all-star cast, which includes Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway and Rihanna.

Ocean’s 8 is scheduled to be released next June, 11 years after the final installment of the original series.

“The trailer positions Sandra Bullock’s character at the helm of a new heist crew anchored by Cate Blanchett. Mindy Kaling plays a jewelry expert, Rihanna a mysterious hacker type, Helena Bonham Carter works in fashion, Sarah Paulson’s a reluctant mom, and Awkwafina plays a street-smart hustler. The target is Anne Hathaway’s character, or more specifically, her $150,000,000 necklace.”

The early reaction to this trailer? Pretty positive. It does look entertaining, so at least there’s that. It doesn’t exactly feel original or even necessary, but at least it’ll be entertaining!

As mentioned above, Ocean’s 8 will hit theaters June 8, 2018.

In addition to the photo, Warner Bros. shared this nugget of information

“In Summer 2018, the tide will turn as Debbie Ocean (SANDRA BULLOCK) attempts to pull off the heist of the century at New York City’s star-studded annual Met Gala. Her first stop is to assemble the perfect crew: Lou (CATE BLANCHETT); Nine Ball (RIHANNA); Amita (MINDY KALING); Constance (AWKWAFINA); Rose (HELENA BONHAM CARTER); Daphne Kluger (ANNE HATHAWAY); and Tammy (SARAH PAULSON).”

That’s right, folks. This movie won’t be hitting theaters until June 8, 2018. You still have a LONG time to wait, so you best get comfortable.

This photo will be all you have for several months.

‘The Heat’ Screenwriter Reveals The Script Was Originally Written For Amy Poehler And Tina Fey


In 2013, the buddy cop comedy film The Heat was released. It was a moderately successful film, it received mostly positive reviews from critics, and it was a huge success at the box office, grossing $230 million worldwide against a $43 million budget.

The movie will always have a special place in my heart because it marked the first time I started saving my ticket stubs. No one cares about that except me, so now I’m realizing it was a useless piece of information to include. I apologize.

Anyway, Katie Dippold wrote the script, and while she was discussing the new Ghostbusters film (which she co-wrote) she talked about how The Heat was originally written for Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Dippold was writing for Parks & Recreation when she created the first draft of the script. At the time, she believed Poehler would play the foulmouthed police officer and Fey would play the more reserved FBI-agent.

After she sold the script for a reported six-figure total, she got the surprise of her life when her “dream director” Paul Feig agreed to jump on as the director. While discussing casting, Feig mentioned he wanted a lead project for Melissa McCarthy, and apparently McCarthy was wanting to do a movie with Sandra Bullock.

And that’s when Dippold took a step back and realized McCarthy and Bullock would be perfect, “If you read the first draft, every now and then something starts to feel more like Melissa.”

I’m sure the film would have been successful either way, but it probably wouldn’t have made as much money had it starred Poehler and Fey. If you want to compare apples to apple juice, 2015’s Sisters comedy film (starring Fey and Poehler) made just $105 million at the box office. Not bad, but it’s not $230 million.
