“The heist thriller “Widows” has arguably the most impressively stacked ensemble cast of the year, including Viola Davis, Liam Neeson, Daniel Kaluuya, Michelle Rodriguez, Brian Tyree Henry, Carrie Coon, Robert Duvall, Jacki Weaver, Colin Farrell and Cynthia Erivo.
Which makes it all the more impressive that 28-year-old Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki has been singled out for her performance as Alice, a young woman who gets out from under the repression of her abusive husband and her exploitative mother to discover she has more to offer than anyone, including herself, had previously known.
“She resonated on many, many levels,” Debicki said of the part during a recent interview in Los Angeles. “I mean, I’ve been looking and waiting for some time to play somebody like Alice, somebody who was very real and raw and multidimensional, had an arc that was quite an amazing sort of growth in that woman’s life. So there was me as the actor looking at it and thinking, ‘I just want to get my hands on that.’”
In the movie Davis plays Veronica, a woman who is suddenly in debt to a dangerous gangster when her husband, a career criminal, dies during…………………………………..”

How The Blair Witch Project changed horror for ever
The movie’s marketing took advantage of trust in the early internet, but fake news isn’t what it used to be
“We will never get a movie like The Blair Witch Project again. Having said that, weve had dozens of movies like The Blair Witch Project. In the 20 years since its release, it has transformed the horror landscape, and more besides. Found footage is now a sub-genre in itself thanks to it. How many horror movies have we seen claiming: This all really happened, honest? How many occult symbols and folk myths have crossed our screens? How many gung-ho teens have set off on an adventure, never to return? And how many times has a gimmicky horror reaped rewards for virtually no outlay? Blair Witch did not invent all these tricks but it put them together to create a phenomenon. It is the 21st centurys Exorcist………………………………………………….”
Yes, ‘New Mutants’ is still coming, Probably.
Jean Grey comes into her powers in ‘Dark Phoenix’.
“The X-Men are part of the Disney family now, and never has that felt clearer than at the studio’s CinemaCon presentation Wednesday.
Disney touted both Dark Phoenix and New Mutants as part of its upcoming slate, alongside the usual Avengers and Star Wars and Pixa
What exactly the X-Men’s future looks like at the Mouse House, though, remains unclear.
Deadpool clearly isn’t going anywhere. “You’ll be seeing more of Deadpool in the years ahead,” promised studio chairman Alan Horn, after sharing Ryan Reynolds’ cheeky tweet about Fox joining Disney.
And New Mutants, despite delayed release dates, reports of reshoots, and rumors of a straight-to-streaming distribution plan, does seem to be headed to cinemas — it was included on a slide of Disney’s 2019 theatrical releases.
But the core X-Men franchise led by James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Sophie Turner is evidently coming to a conclusion. Dark Phoenix, out this summer, was described by 20th Century Fox’s Emma Watts as “the perfect sendoff” to the X-Men series……………………………………………………….”
Dog assassins are a thing in ‘John Wick: Chapter 3’ and holy crap we can’t wait
These good boys are ready to help. Also, John Wick and Sofia are there.
“The entire John Wick franchise was set into motion by the death of a dog. Now, in John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum, the canine species finally gets a shot at revenge.
In footage revealed exclusively at CinemaCon, two Belgian shepherds owned by Sofia (Halle Berry) take an active role in the fight, bringing down the bad guys who would harm Sofia and John (Keanu Reeves).
The scene opens with the two human assassins in what looks like a desolate, deserted castle, preparing for some dramatic event to come.
Parabellum knows exactly how long we’ve been waiting to see some dogs fuck some shit up.
Then the henchmen arrive and the shooting starts, and Sofia’s dogs spring into action. They race ahead to take down minions for Sofia to shoot. One mauls a guy, sending him off the side of a high wall.
At one point, Sofia spots a baddie coming at them from above — so she bends over and lets one of her dogs springboard off her back, leap onto that high wall, and attack that dude directly.
Mind you, Sofia and John are in the battle as well, frantically running around and shooting at nameless villains in the gracefully choreographed way we’ve come to expect from these films………………………………………………………………….”
