Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon to Star in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’ Movie


Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon will star in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming World War II epic “Oppenheimer,” a drama about the development of the atomic bomb.

It is not clear who Downey Jr. and Damon will be playing in the film. Nolan is assembling a star-studded cast, one that includes Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer and Emily Blunt as his wife Katherine. Oppenheimer, a physicist who was integral to the Manhattan Project, is known as the father of the atomic bomb. Though exact plot details have been kept under wraps, the story is expected to dramatize the creation of the nuclear weapon.

Universal Pictures is distributing “Oppenheimer,” which the studio describes as an “epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.” The film carries a $100 million production budget.

Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe lost in space?

Marvel’s fourth phase is proving fickle, with a muted critical response to its latest film releases and its TV shows fluffing their creative lines. Can the comic-book heroes pull it back from the brink?

This weekend the Eternals – a celestial race of supers who have hidden away for thousands of years – will emerge on to cinema screens across the world to take on their evil counterparts, the Deviants.

So far, so Marvel, but initial reaction to the film has been curiously muted. Though a reliably unreliable metric, the film’s Rotten Tomatoes score has dropped to 53%, the lowest of any film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (though, it should be noted, nowhere near as low as other Marvel and wider comic-book fare).

It’s by no means a washout, but the film has been criticised for its dense plotting and patchy CGI and, despite the efforts of Chloé Zhao in the director’s chair, it has seemingly been hampered by the idiosyncratic hallmarks of the MCU.

Marvel is very far from crisis stations, but its “fourth phase” has proven fickle. Notwithstanding the impact of the pandemic, the response to its films and TV properties has been uneven, with the Multiverse-shaped way ahead promising to make the universe ever more complex. This suggests a huge amount of confidence, but the MCU is in danger of fluffing its creative lines.

While films such as Iron Man 3 and Thor: Ragnarok were comedic riffs on the parameters that the MCU so clearly defined, its latest offerings have balked at the chance to deliver something new, and suffered for it. Cate Shortland’s Black Widow felt as if it was forced from above to quip its way out of a much darker, frankly more interesting tone. It’s a film, too, that was released years too late. Set after the events of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, the film lacked meaningful stakes, given that Marvel fans already knew the eventual fate of the super-assassin.

‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 Teaser Shows Eleven and Will’s Life Beyond Hawkins


Netflix just released a “Stranger Things” Season 4 teaser in honor of “Stranger Things Day” — Nov. 6, the same day the sci-fi drama character Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) first went missing in Hawkins, Ind. in 1983. The new season will launch summer 2022.

In it, Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and Will are living new lives in California, where Eleven seems to be having a hard time adjusting, although she doesn’t admit that when writing to Mike (Finn Wolfhard). Her letter serves as narration for the teaser, which you can watch below.

“I even like school now. I have made lots of friends,” she says, as she’s ignored by peers in the school hallway. “Even so, I am ready for spring break, mostly because I get to see you. We will have the best spring break ever.”

The teaser ends in a montage of classic “Stranger Things” chaos: explosions, car chases, a creepy doll, a military arrest and more. The song “A Place In California” by Jeremiah Burnham plays in the background as the teaser comes to a close.

Blade Runner and Alien TV series in the works


Speaking on Monday ahead of the release of his new film House of Gucci, Sir Ridley told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he had already "written the pilot for Blade Runner" as well as "the bible" - the plan for a 10-episode series.

The original Blade Runner movie, set in a dystopian future Los Angeles in 2019, was released in 1982, starring Harrison Ford.

Its sequel, Blade Runner 2049, was released in 2017, starring Ryan Gosling alongside Ford; and an anime series called Blade Runner: Black Lotus premiered earlier this month on the Adult Swim channel.

Sir Ridley said: "We're already into having written the pilot for Blade Runner and the bible, so we’re already presenting Blade Runner as a TV show, which will probably be the first 10 hours.
"And then Alien is a similar thing. Alien is now being written for pilot."

The 1979 Alien film starred Sigourney Weaver and Tom Skerritt, and was followed by three sequels - as well as prequels and crossover Alien vs Predator movies alongside comic books and video games.

Last year, FX channel boss John Landgraf described the new project as "the first Alien story set on Earth".

He said: "By blending both the timeless horror of the first Alien film with the non-stop action of the second, it's going to be a scary thrill ride that will blow people back in their seats."

‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’: Chris Columbus Wants to Direct Sequel Movie With Original Trio


The director of the first two films in the series, Chris Columbus, told Variety said he wants to direct a film adaptation of the stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and he wants the original trio to return.

In the interview, when specifically asked if the director thought there would be more films in the series besides the current run of prequels, Columbus stated, “I would love to direct The Cursed Child. It’s a great play and the kids are actually the right age to play those roles. It’s a small fantasy of mine”.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore​



Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is an upcoming fantasy film directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J. K. Rowling and Steve Kloves. A British and American co-production, it is the sequel to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018), the third instalment in the Fantastic Beasts film series and the eleventh overall in the Wizarding World franchise. The film stars an ensemble cast including Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, William Nadylam, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Jessica Williams, Jude Law and Mads Mikkelsen. Set several years after the events of The Crimes of Grindelwald, it follows Albus Dumbledore tasking Newt Scamander and his allies with a mission that takes them into the heart of dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald's army.

Principal photography was set to begin in early 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; filming commenced in September 2020. Following the pandemic setbacks and the re-casting of Johnny Depp with Mikkelsen, the film's release was pushed back to 15 July 2022, before being eventually set to 8 April 2022 in the United Kingdom and 15 April 2022 in the United States in 3D and 2D. Two more Fantastic Beasts films are in development.
