No Time To Dieís Director Explains Why Heís Not Changing The Movie During Delay
2020-07-10 07:36:03

No Time to Die was one of the first major film releases to push itself back on the calender, even before it was clear in the U.S. that theaters would need to close. The movie was pushed back from an April release to November. Many filmmakers would love tobe given several extra months before a movie is released. There's an opportunity to complete work that maybe wasn't quite done the way one wanted or to come up with entirely new idea that might improve things in the edit. However, Cary Fukunaga isn't doing much of anything with NO Time To Die. 

When asked by Empire about taking the exra time available to do extra work on No Time To Die, Cary Fukunaga says that he reached a point mentally where he was done with the movie and so he's not looking to dive back in. According to the director...

"You could just fiddle and tweak and it doesn't necessarily get better. For all intents and purposes, we had finished the film. I had mentally finished the film. Mentally and emotionally." 

The complete process of making movie can take all of one's attention for well over a year, especially when you're talking about films like James Bond movies. After having No Time to Die be such a major part of Cary Fukunaga's life, he reached a point where the work was done, and so the idea of not being done simply doesn't appeal to him. He got the movie to a point he was willing to walk away, and he did. 

And he director also says that just because he could keep messing with the movie, it doesn't mean that the result would actually be a better film. maybe in some cases, you could make a particular sequence a little tighter or more engaging, but you're just as likely to make something else not work as well, or make changes that have no ultimate impact on the project, just spinning your wheels for the sake of keeping busy. 

Odds are if there really was something Cary Fukunaga wasn't happy with, he would go ahead and take the time to fix it. He probably wouldn't be so mentally done with it if there was something about it he felt needed fixing. We can be fairly confident then that the movie at least meets with his approval, and thus, it's probably in pretty good shape. 

No Time to Die will be final outing as James Bond for Daniel Craig, and so many fans are probably really expecting something special. If the movie will live up to the hype is anybody's guess, though at this point, it seems that nobody is worrying too much about the part. The movie is ready, and all that's left is for the world to see it. That will happen, barring future delays, in November.

Tom Cruise Met With The U.K. Government To Figure Out Mission: Impossible 7 Quarantine Rules
2020-07-09 07:18:17

In a typical situation, it seems unlikely Tom Cruise would speak with the UK government when filming a movie in their country. But these are anything but typical. So, now to get Mission:Impossible 7 rolling again, Tom Cruise met with them to go over quarantine rules. 

According to Deadline, the UK will allow a small cast and crew to travel to the country to film without quarantining for 14 days. Culture secretary Oliver Dowden contacted Tom Cruise to go over plans and how Mission: Impossible 7 can resume filming at Warner zBros, Studios Leavesden. This is a major step forward for the blockbuster, making it one of the first major blockbusters to start up production. 

Earlier this year we learned from First Assistant Director Timothy Gormley that Mission: Impossible 7 was slated to start filming again in September in venice. But director Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise must have unfinished business in the UK and want to get started earlier there. And now it looks like that'll happen sooner rather than later. 

This could mean there's more to be shot in the UK that had to stopped back in March. At that time, while Mission: Impossible 7 filming halted in Italy, Tom Cruise was still filming dangerous stunts on a test track in Surrey, England. 

Filming in Venice, Italy was going to be the biggest part of the Mission: Impossible 7 production, but before Tom Cruise even traveled to that location, things came to a screeching halt. Earlier it was reported that the studio considered scrapping filming in Italy at all, moving things to a sound stage, instead. Now, it sounds like the hopw is they'll be able to film in all the originally planned locations. 

How the cast and crew are going to film in those locations has yet to be seen. But, according to actor Simon Pegg, Mission: Impossible 7 production will likely start with all the outdoor stuff, saying that should be "doable" people working in close proximity will also need to be tested for COVID-19 frequently. 

Of course, the frequent delays in filming has caused both Mission: Impossible 7 and 8 to have their release dates pushed back. The original plan was to have Mission: Impossible 7 release on July 23, 2021 and Mission: Impossible 8 release on August 5, 2022. Now, however, #7 will release November 19, 2021, amd #8 release on November 4, 2022. But, with the ever shifting release date schedule, it wouldn't be surprising if these dates ended up changing. 

Mission: Impossible 7 isn't the only movie production gearing up and rolling the cameras soon. It was reported recently the Jurassic World: Dominion will be filming in mid-July at Pinewood studios. The Matrix 4 and Avatar 2 have also started their productions back up as well. 

Hopefully, Tom Cruise and the cast and crew of Mission: Impossible 7 can stay safe and healthy while filming again in this challending time.

Cameron Diaz Reflects On What Itís Like To Quarantine With A New Baby
2020-07-07 07:20:04

The recent quarantining hasn't been easy on anyone. However, it's posed an extra challenge for many parents including new moms like Cameron Diaz. The actress just got real about what it's been like to get used to having a baby at home during these unprecedented times. 

Cameron Diaz gave birth to her daughter, Raddix at the very end of 2019, and shared the happy news with fans in early January 2020. Just a couple of mounths later, the recent health crisis forced most of the worls into some form of lockdown not exactly what anyone would hope for in their first few months as a new parent. It sounds like even Diaz and husband Benji Madden ended up having to make some big changes to how their day-to-day lives operated as a result, as she noted on Instagram. 

"It's crazy. We did it all on our own as well from the very beginning. We had a night nurse for a few weekends before any of this happened, but just like for the weekend just get some sleep. And we haven't since. It's amazing to be able to spend the time, but my little one just started rolling over. So right now, you can put yours down and leave her, but you can't just leave her on the bed while you do your calls. But yeah, it's really wild."

Despite the unexpected craziness of raising a newborn during a pandemic, Cameron Diaz has tried to find a silver lining in the situation. That includes recognizing how lucky she and Benji Madden are to be able to spend so much time with their daughter:

"Also this time to foucus on her, that you don't have to go into work, that you can work from home. I mean obviously, there's maternity leaves but being able to actually be with her. What I'm finding with my daughter is like, wow. I get to have really foucused time with her and her dad gets to be home too, He's like here he gets to pop in and out all day long, where otherwise he's be at the office. It's so nice." 

With this little glimpse into her world, Cameron Diaz joined a whole host of ther celebrities who've given us updates about their own experience in quarantine in the past few months. unlike some of her counterparts, who've lamented the fact that they've had to take a break from work, the actress hasn't taken on a movie role since 2014's Annis. Sge's alluded to the fact that she seems to be happy taking a step back from the spotlight. Still, it's good to hear she and her family are doing well, and have made the most of their time together.

Tom Hanks Has Some Blunt Thoughts For People Refusing To Wear Masks
2020-07-06 07:38:43

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people from all walk of life, including celebrities. case in point, back in March, Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, both tested positive for the coronavirus while they were in Australia for Hanks to shoot Baz Luhrmann's upcoming Elvis biopic. The two made a full recovery and returned to the United States by the end of March, and like many folks, they've continued to socially distance so as not to go another round with this disease. 

Alas, America's dad isn't so much mad, but definitely disappointed with how the United States has been handling the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically with the people who are refusing to wear masks while out in public. As the actor recently said during a press conference promoting his new movie Greyhound. 

"There's really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mark, social distance, wash our hands. Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things - I just think shame on you. Don't be a pussy, get on with it, do your part. It's very basic. If you're driving a car, you don't go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it's common sense." 

With a firmly worded statement like that, I'm surprised Tom Hank didn't send us to our rooms... figuratively speaking. Still, considering what he's been through, along with just caring for the general well being of other, I can understand why he's so frustrated. Hanks brought up the mask issue while comparing the thematic parallels of what the characters in Greyhound deal with to the pandemic-related trouble wr're dealing with in real life. 

As for his current health, Tom Hanks said that he and Rita Wilson are still doing fine, and that their initial bout with COVID was just 10 days of "very uncomfortable symptoms" that were never life threatening. In addition to having talked about has and Rita Wilson's struggles with the coronavirus on various other occasions, Hanks has also donated plasma at least twice in order to help medical professionals develop a coronavirus vaccine. 

It should also be noted that Tom Hanks is far from the only celebrity who's advocating for people to wear masks.

Hugh Jackman Remembers How James Mangold Made Filming The Logan Ending So Special
2020-07-03 08:19:03

Three years ago marked the end of an era, as after 17 years, Huge Jackman made his final apperance as Wolverine in the R-rated Logan. Rather than leave things open ended for this iteration of the clawed mutant, the third of the character's X-Men spinoffs concluded with him dying in battle, with his female clone "daugher," Defne Keen's Laura, a.k.a. X-23, by his side as he took his final breaths. 

Hugh Jackman recently recalled the day he shot Wolverine's death scene in Logan, specifically how director James Mangold went out of his way to ensure that the cast and crew didn't rush through that period of filming. As Jackman explained while speaking with fellow Les Miserable star Anne Hathaway for variety's Actors on Actors segment: 

"I remember when we shot that scene, we were shooting [at a] very high altitude, and there was thunderstorms going off everywhere, and we had to shut down. So he just said: 'We can't do this big stunt scene. But we're just going to do the death scene.' I'm like, 'Like, now?'He gors, 'I'm just going to have you and Dafne [Keen}, and if you could just do that.' I'm like, 'All right. Okay.' He knew that's best for me. We got there and we're shooting the scene. Dafne was 11. She was fantasic. We shot Dafne, and he turned around in after two takes and he goes, 'Let's just kick out. Let's do another.' I said, 'You sure? I feel like...' and he goes, 'Man, let's just stop the clocks. Let's not worry about everthing. This is the end of 19 years. Sit in it. Sit in it for half an hour,' and he rolled the cameras. Him just allowing me that moment because I'm like you: I'm aware of everything. Him just allowing me to just kind of, not just as an actor but a Hugh, to remember that moment. It was a luxury that I'll never forget."

Not only was Hugh Jackman was propelled to worldwide fame when he was cast as Wolverine for the first X-Men movie, he ended up playing the role across nine movies total. So naturally the entire process of hanging up the claws during Logan was going to be an emotional experience, but clearly shooting this scene was a particularly special moment. 

Given the way the weather was behaving that day, as well Hugh Jackman and Dafne Keen having already shot a few takes, it would have been easy to either move on after those takes or rush through any extra takes. However, james Mangold understood that this was something that needed to be charished, and thus had the foresight to tell Jackman to take his time with the material. clearly the two actors delivered the goods during that 30 minutes of filming, as the take that was selected served as one of Logan's most powerful moments, if not at the top of the list. 

Ultimately, Logan ended up being one of the X-Men franchise's most pritically successful movies, ranking on Rotten Tomatoes at 93% among professional critics and a 90% audience score. It also did quite well for itself at the box office, collecting approximately %619 million world wide. 

Tha main X-Men film series concluded last year with the release of Dark Phoenix, and the entire era of Fox-produced X-Men will wrap up once The New Mutants finelly arrives. While there are plans for the X-Men to be incorporated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point, no details have been provided on how that will be accomplished.

Kristen Bell Opens Up On How Frozen 2ís Anna Was Inspired By Her Own Depression
2020-07-02 06:49:26

Frozen II is a unique movie in many ways. It's in a class by itself as the highest grossing animated film ever made, but it's also one of Walt Disney Animation's few sequels. These things alone would make the film morthy of it's own documentary series, but the new Disney+ Series, Into the unknown: Making Frozen 2, which debuted the past weekend, also shines a light on another way the film is special. It deals with some powerful emotional issues you don't usually see in animated "family" movies, like depression, and it's thanks to Kristen Bell that the movie did that. 

Prior to the release of Frozen II Kristen Bell spoke about the character arc we would see for Anna in the film came out of specific discussion she had with writer/co-director Jennifer Lee, but, likely to simply avoid spoilers, Bell was somewhat vague about exactly what made up thise conversations. However, in Into the unknown Bell speaks out directly about how Anna's Journey, and the song "The Next Right Thing" came out of the actresses own struggles with depression. Bell says...

"When Anna thinks everyone around her has perished she has to look inward and realize what else is there to live for. And this mantra of "do the next thing" came out of a conversation that Jen and I had really early on about my anxiety and depression. And I think "Do the Next Right Thing," it really is for anyone who is feeling low and struggling and does not know what to do. Because the only thing you can do at those lowest moments is one step at a time."

Animated Disney movies have never been all that afraid to go dark, but rather than focus on a potentially grisly death for a villain, the darkest moment of Frozen II comes when Anna Has to fight the desire to just ... stop. She has lost her best friend in Olaf and she believes she's lost her sister as well. Anna has largely identified herself through her relationship, and so without them, she's wondering what the real point even is. 

"Thw Next Right Thing" is a beautiful song in both its terrible feeling of loss and, eventually, it's pinpoint of light and hope that Anna eventually finds. She knows that there is a job that needs to be done, and in the end she chooses to do it, even if all she can do is focus on each next step as it comes, because the big picture is simply to big to handle. Kristen Bell admits that sometimes, she had to do exactly that...

"When I'm experiencing that, for me, if I wake up and I'm feeling very low, all I gotta do is step outta bed and then, the next right thing is to brush my teeth, and the next righ thing is to go and have a cup of cooffee, and the next right thing is to wake my kids up. And I take those steps incrementally when the world and its problems seem to big for me to handle." 

Sometimes the world and its problems seem to big to handle? No idea what that's like. 

It's maybe not too surprising that "Do the Next Right Thing"is a somewhat autobiographical song for Kristen Bell. You can feel the emotion in her words, and you see in Into the Unknown that recording the song brought tears to her eyes. It's a pain a lot of people have probably felt, and maybe, hearing Kristen Bell speak openly about the fact that she does as well, will help others do the next right things.

Gerard Butler On For Action Thriller Kandahar
2020-06-30 07:25:52

There may be quibbles as to their quality, but the action thriller genre has been good to Geraed Butler, and he's sticking with it for another move. The actor will lead new pic Kandahar. 

It also marks another team-up between Butler and director Ric Roman Waugh, who worked with the actor on Angel Has Fallen and the upcoming Greenland. Waugh wrote the new film with former military intelligence officer Mitchell LaFortune and it'll see Butler as Tom Harrfis, an undercover CIA operative working in the Middle East. An intelligence leak dangerously exposes his classified mission and reveals his covert identity. Stuck in the heart of hostile territory, Harris and his translator must fight their way out of the desert to an extraction point in Kandahar, Afghanistan, while eluding the elite specil force hunting them. 

LaFortune wrote the original version of the script based on his experience in at the Defense Intelligence Agency in Afghanistan at the time of the Snowden leaks, and production company Thunder Road snapped it up in 2016. So you know it'll be layed with real detail and accu... Oh, who are we kidding? Ot'll be stuffed full of OTT action. 

Tom Hanksí Elvis Movie Will Continue Filming After Shutting Down Over COVID-19 Diagnosis
2020-06-29 07:20:59

Many Hollywood productions are slowly staring to get ready to resume filming this summer and during the latter part of this year after a major three-month sertback. The COVID-19 pandemic altered manyinitial Hollywood plans earlier this year and, when Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson teasted positive for coronavirus while working on Buz Luhrmann's Elvis Presley biopic, it served as a wake-up call for Hollywood. After the couple announced their diagnosis back in mid-March and the film was delayed, amny other sets stared packing up, too. 

Now, it looks like the film centered on Elvis Presley and his manager, colonel Tom Parker, may continue in Australia soon ahead of its fall 2021 release date. Queensland's Premier (Australia's equivalent to a prime minister) Annastacia Palaszczuk recently met with Baz Luhemann about returning to the country to get back to work, and a "safe plan"is currently being developed for the biopic and other productions that are set for the Gold Coast. 

Palaszczuk said she wants to ensure the movie can resume shooting "as soon as possible," but the goverment would also like to make sure the cast and crew can "operate safly," per Daily Mail. No specific date for the music biopic on The King has been disclosed, but Screen Queensland and Queensland Health are actively working toward this. 

Less than two weeks ago, Los Angeles recived the go-ahead to resume Hollywood work with a ton of restrictions, including crew being required to wear masks and the requirement for sex scenes to be rewritten, abandoned or adjsted using CGI. Production will be particulary tough for a film of this subject matter, since much of Elvis Presley's life took place in front of droves of fans and large gatherings are outlawed in many regions. 

On the day the Elvis film has to shut down, the movie's Presley actor Austin Butler was at the center of "basically hundreds of girls kissing Elvis" according to the director. Time will tell if Baz Luhrmann got what he needed for that scene since chances are something of that breadth may not be allowed under Australia's requirement. Though the Gold Coast is at a much more stable condition than the U.S. considering the country just reported its first death in a month. 

The untitled flick is set to be Baz Luhrmann's first flick since 2013's The Great Gatsby and will track Elvis Presley's rise to fame and his relationship with his manger, played by Tom Hanks. The movie has already been delayed from its original June 2021 date to November 2021. In regard to Hanks and Rita Wilson, after having coronavirus for a couple weeks in March, the two completely recovered returrned to their home in Los Angeles and have been donating plasma to support the effort for health professionals to find a vaccine. 

Knives Out, James Bond And How Daniel Craig Got Screwed Out Of A Particular Box Office Title This Year
2020-06-26 06:22:30

No Time To Die was one of the first theatrical movies to bump its release date in response to the current events that saw major theater chains closing down in the interest of public safety. This move gave the film an opportunity to be a more traditional James Bone film by opening in the franchise's usual November release slot, which is fitting for Daniel Craig's final stint in the role. However, with a recent change-up putting the film in an earlier debut slot than intended, it looks like one thing is clear: Daniel Craig is going to have to fight a little harder to become king of the Thanksgiving box office. 

I say this thanks to the inspiration of one Forbes article where, upon reflecting on the new November 20 release date, their columnist noted that No Time to Die was leaving a surefire Thanksgiving weekend record on the table for anyone else to claim. But looking a little deeper into this particular subject, I noticed an even greater possibility is being passed up, as Craig's success with Knives Out last year could have helped make him a fixture of that particular holiday, if only the 25th Bond had decided to take the ball further into the end zone. 

The lats clear time I can think of anyone being crowned the champion of any sort of holiday is, of course, that span of time between 1996 and 1997 when Will Smith opened both Independence Day and Men In Black on 4th of July weekend. With two smash hits in Back-to-back years on the same holiday weekend, Smith was known as the blockbuster king of 4th of July; and since director Rian Johnson's whodunnit was a hell of a hit that just happened to open on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a new king could have been crowned for an entirely different holiday. 

Were No Time To Die to have stuck to its November 25 guns, it would have not only potentially crused the Thanksgiving weekend record with Daniel Craig's 007 swan song, it could have in turn given Johnson's next Benoit Blanc film a cozy release date to stake out before anyone else caught wise. Any future Danel Craig film for the foreseeable future could have taken that spot without question, and the market would have been forced to bow to the chims of his charm and box office reputation. 

But alas, for some strange reason, five days were a crucial enough gap that the studio felt it had to close, and No Time To Die sits current release frame. Maybe there was some sort of behind the scenes calculation that made the movie a wise one, or maybe EON Productions was trying to help ease the pain for US audience waiting for the next James Bond adventure. It's not clear to the naked eye, but whatever the reason, this business decision will make it a little harder for Daniel Craig to claim Thanksgiving weekend his own, unless this year's Bond film somehow crushed it harder in its second weekend. Which is definitely doable, but that has just a little less of a punch than delivering that weekend a strong opening blow.
