    Michael Rooker is the latest addition to Fast and Furious 9

    by Emily Keen

    Guardians of Galaxy fame Michael Rooker is officially on board for Fast and Furious 9.

    The sizzling line up made of Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson, and Helen Mirren will now be joined by Finn Cole, Anna Sawai, and Vinnie Bennett.

    Rooker who played Yondu (Peter Quill’s mentor) in the Guardians of Galaxy, landed the role of Buddy in the ninth sequel of The Fast and Furious series. His addition to the roster was confirmed by ‘Deadline’.

    Yondu’s character dies at the end of the second volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy while saving Peter Quill. Superhero movies are known for invariably scheming resurrections, but that won’t happen to Yondu. Director James Gunn made it pretty clear that he had no plans of bringing Rooker’s character back to life in Guardians of Galaxy Vol. 3.

    With the production kicked off in June 2019, not many details of Fast and Furious 9 are known yet. Justin Lin is back at the helm after having amazingly delivered the pitches of third through sixth parts of the franchise. The script is penned by Daniel Casey.

    Rooker already has Harold Becker’s Sea of Love, Tony Scott’s Days of Thunder, Alan Parker’s Mississippi Burning and Oliver Stone’s JFK to his credits. The year 2020 seems quite overwhelming for Rooker who will also star in Amazon’s The Dark Tower pilot. His imminent projects for the year include Fantasy Island releasing on February 28 and Monster Problems on March 6.

    Fast and Furious 9 will be hitting the screens on May 22, 2020. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will not be a part of the film thanks to their commitments to Hobbs and Shaw. But it would be interesting to watch where the script goes with Rooker’s coming in. Also for fans who crept out thinking this could be a wrap, be assured that the tenth installment is already in place with April 2021 locked in for release.

    Spiderman: Far From Home to Re-release with Extended Cut

    by Emily Keen

    Spiderman: Far from home will sling back to the theatres on August 29 with a full scale extended cut.

    The extended version will be showcased in IMAX and other large formats in select areas. The web-slinger re-release promises four minutes of brand new action sequences that will get fans pouring in for the second time.

    The sequel starring Tom Holland proved a major success on Sony’s watch. The Sony/Marvel spin-off opened locally on 2nd July and went on to be the biggest success in Sony’s 95-year-old history. It is now officially Sony’s highest-grossing exclusively owned project beating Skyfall, as ‘Deadline’ reported this morning. It is also the only non-Disney movie to hit $1B this year.

    It’s been three weeks since the film smashed a record of worldwide collection and Sony decides to role the dice one last time for the Labor Day weekend.

    Far from home has Spidey coming to terms with the death of his mentor while trying to stick to his old reputation of a friendly neighborhood Spiderman. It is just heartwarming to see a kid who just had a battle of universal scale coming back to his old awkward form. Just as his life is starting to spell normal another other-worldly threat looms in. And there begins a battle that will in true sense determine his worth as an avenger.

    The selling point remains to be Holland’s adorable Peter Parker. Him wanting to pour his heart to his love interest (Zendaya) and then messing up his love story for his duties as a superhero is phenomenally portrayed.

    With the forever likable Holland and eagle-eyed Fury watching his six, they throw in more charm with Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. He picks up the thread dropped by Tony Stark, taking up as Parker’s new mentor. What else would a winning Spiderman script look like?

    And the re-release! Well, that just looks like a success party where fans get to savor up the experience with extra spice.

    Why ‘Godzilla: King of Monsters’ did not fare well at the box office?

    by Emily Keen

    Forbes had a pretty empirical justification for why the Godzilla: King of monsters was not able to recreate the magic as Godzilla did. It was the five-year gap the makers took to release a sequel. The void created by the Godzilla Franchise was substantially filled in by two Jurassic Park movies, Rampage, The Meg, Pacific Rim: Uprising and Kong: Skull Island.

    Another argument could be the unpopular cast line up of the sequel, which could not compete with the popular faces of Kong: Skull Island – Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, and John Goodman.

    The monster movies genre squeezed in multiple scripts in a period in which Godzilla could have launched a sequel. It would not be wrong to assume that the audience by now was almost saturated for another tale of monster combat.

    King of Monsters released at the end of May 2019. Considering the competition it faced from Aladdin, John Wick 3 and Detective Pikachu, it obviously stood a very little chance of reviving its old record of collections ($200,676,069 in the household market).  And of course, how can we forget the show stopper of the year – Avengers Endgame that brought down Avatar from the spot of number one grossing movie that it held for almost a decade.

    Godzilla: King of Monsters’ domestic collection as of 18/08/19 stood at $110,381,893.

    The theatrical run of the sequel is wrapping away and Blu-ray is set to release on August 27. The only hope that the franchise is now left with is Godzilla vs Kong releasing on 13 March 2020. Godzilla vs Kong will be directed by Adam Wingard and written by Terry Rossio. Adam Wingard has already tried his hands at thriller and supernatural flicks like The Guest and Death Note respectively.

    Godzilla vs Kong will be his first dive into the monster verse. For him, the project definitely looks like a catch-22. But let’s not forget that King of Monsters was Michael Dougherty’s first attempt into the monster films league too. And if it wasn’t for the factors of the gap and a fatigued audience, it was no less than a jaw-dropper.

    Good boys saves the day for Universal post the abrupt ban on The Hunt.

    by Emily Keen

    Good Boys ranked number one at the box office this weekend.  The original comedy had the second-highest opening behind Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Funeral.

    This is Universal’s second original film of the year to reach number one after Us in March. Universal’s low budget line up apparently seems to play well at the field.

    But that’s not all that the original R rated comedy accomplished. It managed to grab the top spot with one Disney studio release in the running. Disney movies are notorious for invariably calling dibs on the first two spots when it comes to collections.

    The story of Good Boys revolves around boys in their pre-teens who set out on the journey to uncover the norms of sexuality in anticipation of a kissing party- through a series of shenanigans and forbidden activities of course. Remember Porky’s (1981)? Except Porky’s was about teenagers!

    Gene Stupnitzky in his directorial debut has served the plot just right and with consistent hilarity and a hint of uniqueness to an abundantly rich genre. Although $21 million may not be a very impressive opening collection, for mid-August, the #1 spot accomplishment stays noteworthy for an R rated original comedy feature.

    Hobbs And Shaw went on to take the second spot in its third week. The Fast and Furious spin-off could not retain it’s the top position for obvious reasons – a dreary script that lacked conviction. It surprisingly stands tight in the household with the Chinese market is yet to throw in into the global collection.

    The Disney remake The Lion King stood at the third spot with $11.9 million. The movie is now the tenth highest-grossing movie of the time with a global collection of $1.4 billion.

    Idris Elba Wants to Return as Heimdall. Will It Be In ‘Thor 4’ or ‘Loki’?

    by Kaylen Summers

    Idris Elba is one of those actors who joined the MCU during its early days. The actor first made his appearance as Heimdall in 2011’s Thor directed by Kenneth Branagh and went on to play the role in both Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok. Elba also made a brief appearance in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and in Avengers: Infinity War- where the character met his unfortunate end in the hands of the mad titan.

    Now, it seems like the actor is hoping to return back to the franchise. That’s pretty ironic coming from Elba, as the actor clearly expressed his remorse in playing the character with a wig and contact lenses for hours. He even blasted the experience in an interview from five years ago.


    However, during a recent appearance on ABC Radio that Elba was asked about his role in the MCU to this point and in the future. Though character perished in the opening scenes of Infinity War, the actor was pretty open in expressing his desire to return back to the franchise.

    “Of course,” the actor said. “Listen, Heimdall is essentially part of the god family. So you know, he essentially could be alive. I’m just saying! I’m just putting it out there. The Heimdall character goes way back into, you know, the Thor mythology, And I’m sure there will be an interesting way to bring that alive. Of course, I would. Yes.”

    Loki also died in Infinity War, but we will be seeing him in the upcoming series show on Disney+. So, as true fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we don’t mind seeing Thor’s best pal and keeper of the Bifrost back in action once again.

    With that being said, the only thing left is to decide when and where we can expect Heimdall’s return. Of course, Loki’s upcoming show is a perfect place as the story is taking place on a different timeline formed as a consequence of the ‘time heist’ in Endgame.  However, it will be more sensible for the actor to be returning back in Waititi’s 2021 film, Thor: Love and Thunder. If that’s not working out with Fegie, there is also Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3. Who knows. Maybe we will be seeing some ‘Asgardians of the Galaxy’ after all.

    What do you think? Is there any possible way for Heimdall to return back to the MCU? Or is it the last of him? Let us know in the comments below.
