Christopher Nolan is back, with WB dropping a trailer for his craziest movie ever -- Tenet. Check out the official trailer to Tenet below:
Until now, Tenet has been shrouded in mystery and even though the official trailer is here, Nolan's new movie is still shrouded in mystery. John David Washington heads up Tenet, playing what seems to be some super-spy saving the world from World War 3.
Nolan being Nolan, we have some time travel goodness here, stunning cinematography (it wouldn't be a Nolan movie without it), and oodles of mystery. Nolan shot Tenet across 7 different countries, so we should expect some truly beautiful shots throughout the movie.
Amazon is wanting to get the filming of their massive Lord of the Rings TV show underway, as apparently casting agencies are after people to play orcs.
According to LadBible, who reported that casting agents are currently seeing in mass people with "wonderful noses" or "character faces". The requirements also detail people should join if they are over six feet tall or under five feet. The report says that two casting agencies are currently taking in requests for people of any background and ethnicity.
The LadBible also says that the casting agencies are looking for "long lithe dancers" as well as "stocky mean-looking bikers" and "redheads of all ages, shapes and sizes". The whole idea behind finding these peculiar looking people to be used as orc extras is that their faces will require less make-up. New Zealand's Stuff.co.nz reported that Amazon's casting calls are now "urgent" as they want to hurry the shooting process along.
Ever wondered what Pickle Rick would taste like? Next year you will be able to try, as Pringles is making their own flavor.
Yes, you read that correctly. Pringles has announced that it will be making a special 'Pickle Rick' flavor of its potato crisps. According to the official Pringles Twitter account, these special edition Rick and Morty-themed Pringles in 'Pickle Rick' flavor will be released "On 2/2".
What would these even taste like? Would it be a normal pickle chip flavor plus something that's meant to taste like Rick? What would that even be? Maybe an alcoholic taste to fit the character's personality? Who knows. I suppose we will only know what Pickle Rick tastes like when the chips release until then we just have to enjoy these play-on-words. "I turned myself into a can of Pringles Morty! I'm Pringles Rick!"
The actor from the movies that inspired Rick and Morty's creation wants to see the Back To The Future characters meet their cartoon counterparts.
If you didn't know, Rick and Morty is inspired by Back To The Future characters Dr. Emmett Brown (Doc) and Marty McFly. During an interview at German Comic Con Dortmund, Christopher Lloyd, who played Dr. Emmett Brown in all of the Back To The Future movies, was asked if he is aware of Rick and Morty, his response was perfect. "I think it's fabulous. I've watched it, I love the humor in it, I love the characters."
Llyod continues and says, " I've had a fantasy that they make another Back to the Future, Back to the Future 4. And Back to the Future 4 - it's not happening - but if it did, Back to the Future 4 collides with Rick and Morty. Someway, somewhere in another time zone, in another space zone." It would be awesome if Adult Swim could manage to get this crossover event happening, as I think fans would absolutely love it. Maybe Rick and Morty could see Marty and Doc during one of their adventures, and then Rick could criticize how inferior Doc's time travel machine is while Morty feels nervously familiar around Marty, but he doesn't know why.
The new Michael Bay movie starring Ryan Reynolds arrived on Netflix just this past Friday, and what you probably didn't notice when watching it was Ryan Reynolds shooting a cameo video on screen in the movie.
Firstly, thanks to Deadly Fun for the side-by-side comparison image as I can say I would of never spotted while watching the film. The above image is a screenshot of the video Ryan Reynolds posted to Instagram over a year ago. In this video he talked about appreciating the stillness and the quiet moments in Michael Bay movies, while behind him an epic car chase is Florence is unfolding.
The bottom image shows Ryan Reynolds recording that same social media cameo video of himself from a different location. To top this all off, at the time of the car chase Ryan Reynolds' character in the movie is being chased by the bad guys. What a hilarious cameo, and surely one of the best of all time.
Paramount Pictures are on a positive hype train leading up to the release of the Sonic The Hedgehog movie, and what better way to get some more eyeballs on the upcoming blue blur than The Rock tweeting about it.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the most followed Twitter accounts out there, he's easily within the top 150 accounts with his 14 million followers. So how does a marketing team leverage those followers to get them to tune into what they want them to see? Easy. Get the main character of the movie to mention the owner of the account directly, or at least that's what Sonic did to The Rock, and he replied.
The upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie that is a living representation that the internet can fix things that are originally disgusting, and turn them into something beautiful, posted a short clip about The Rock. Sonic says, "Where am I? What year is it? Is The Rock president???". The Rock then retweeted that video, and said "So crazy I used to love playing Sonic in college. Many moons later this... life can be so damn wildly unpredictable and surreal at times." I mean, how cool would it be to see one of your favorite video game characters as a kid saying your name in an extremely high-budget movie.
The fifth episode of Rick and Morty Season 4 just aired yesterday, marking the end of the first half of season 4. So when will the radical adventures return?
I won't be getting into any of the events of the fifth episode (I will save that for another article), so you can cease worrying about whether or not this one contains spoilers. According to a Twitter post on the official Rick and Morty Twitter account, season 4 of Rick and Morty will be returning to our screens sometime in 2020. Here's the official quote, "Rick and Morty Season 4 will return in 2020".
Adult Swim doesn't specify when the fourth season of Rick and Morty will return, but if I were to guess when it would be aired, I would say closer to the end of January. I would also assume that after the festive season is over and we have moved into the new year, that we will get an official promo from Adult Swim giving us a solid date. I'd guess that promo will be released within the first two weeks of January, hyping us for the end of the month when the episodes return.
Episode 5 for Rick and Morty season 4 releases today, and to increase hype levels just that much more, we have another teaser trailer to clip.
The above video has been posted onto the official Rick and Morty Twitter account, and from what is shown, we can piece together the last teaser clip with this one to enjoy one long clip. Earlier this week the Rick and Morty Twitter account posted a short clip of Morty getting bitten by a space snake, and it seems that the above teaser clip is the dialogue part that was cut out from it.
The clip begins with Morty telling Rick that he needs to pee, Rick then immediately declines Morty's need to relieve himself but instead suggests for him to swallow a centipede that makes him not have to go. Morty, of course, says no to swallowing a centipede, and just after Rick comments that Morty isn't the victim in the transaction, but the centipede is, the spacecraft gets a flat tire. Morty asks Rick "how the hell do you get a flat tire in space Rick?", Rick replies, "obviously from something sharp in space Morty". Then Rick reveals the secret flat tire experience he has programmed into his spacecraft.
Henry Cavill originally teased the black Superman suit for Justice League before director Zack Snyder left the movie when his daughter took her own life, in that time WB took over control and replaced Snyder with The Avengers director and changed the entire movie -- including the entire plot of the black Superman suit.
Back in July 2017, I wrote about the black Superman suit and said at the time: "Could he return with the black Superman suit that Henry Cavill teased on Instagram earlier this year? Superman could even rock a beard, which would be beyond awesome. A bearded, evil Superman?"
I continued, pondering: "That sounds like Superman being evil to me... so bearded Supes with a black suit? PLEASE, DC... but I have one request: bad Superman is beaten by Justice League, for the true Superman to arrive after. I want the true hero behind Superman to be in Justice League, but I'm totally down with a pissed off, and vengeful Kal-El".
DC is on quite the offensive right now, pressing all the right buttons with the recent Wonder Woman 1984 trailer and then news that the story is mostly locked in for Wonder Woman 3 -- and now we have a Shazam 2 release date.
Shazam 2 will arrive in theaters on April 1, 2022 -- once again starring Zachary Levi in the titular role, something he was born for (along with Chuck). DC has needed to announce Shazam 2 quicker than usual, as the child stars in the movie will only get older as time goes on -- if DC and WB waited as long as they have for a sequel to Man of Steel, then the kids would be adults before we got it.
Levi himself said: "If we don't shoot another movie real quick, then they're just gonna be men. There's no point in saying 'Shazam' to transform, they're already transformed! So that's all I can tell you about the sequel, but I'm very excited to get into it, making it, and I hope you all enjoy it when we do".
