Squel For Venom Finally Announced By Sony

Squel For Venom Finally Announced By Sony

A shocking news has just come from Venom. Following its success at the box office, now the official Venom sequel gets the green light from Sony. The report reported by Variety also stated that the studio had appointed Kelly Marcel as a script writer. Previously, he was known to have written Fifty Shades of Gray which also became hits like Venom. As for now Marcel is also involved in biopic Elvis Presley and Cruella, a Disney film that tells of a female villain from 101 Dalmatians.

Venom himself worked on Ruben Fleischer with the main play Tom Hardy. Although not a good film in the eyes of critics, Venom is still fun to watch thanks to entertaining interactions between Eddie Brock (Hardy) and the parasite symbiote. Noted Venom has earned revenues of $ 855 million and entered the ranks of the best-selling film in 2018.

Besides Hardy, the Venom sequel will be starred by Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson. While the Williams character is speculated to be transformed into She-Venom as in the comics, Harrelson is certainly ready to perform fully as a Carnage villain, the Venom “twin” known to be more brutal. There is no certainty whether Spider-Man (Tom Holland) finally came along, despite the fact that he became an inseparable part of the comic Venom story. In addition, because of Fleischer’s busy masterminding of Zombieland 2, it is not certain that he can return to gush Venom 2, so that the studio is reportedly potentially looking for a new director.

FYI, Venom is positioned as the first film of Sony’s Marvel Universe (SMU). Next the second film to be produced is Morbius, a film about vampires from the Spider-Man universe starring Jared Leto. Sony also has other SMU film projects being developed including Kraven the Hunter, Silver and Black, Silk to Nightwatch.

Movie Review : Phantom Threat ( 2017 )

Movie Review : Phantom Threat ( 2017 )

This is the latest film from Paul Thomas Anderson, and the description above may also apply to the filmmaker. Judging from the uniqueness of the film and its directing style, perhaps it is not wrong to categorize Anderson as an eccentric artist. Reynolds has a distinctive habit, in which he likes to sew secret messages that are hidden behind every shirt he makes. To be personal, he said. Cut my bangs if this does not refer to how the self-conscious Anderson slipped into interesting little things that were not really relevant in every film.

This film is a film about a perfectionist made by a perfectionist. Yup, narcissistic director. Do you know what a perfectionist produces? The work that is almost – if not certain – is always perfect.

Anderson put out extreme skills in building the film. Every detail is sewn with precision. This film is beautifully made. As a film about fashion, costumes in the Phantom Thread are charming. Scoring which was dominated by the piano strings from Jonny Greenwood endlessly created a luxurious but moody feel. Not only writing and directing, Anderson reportedly even highlighted his own film without the help of a cinematographer.

When the film presents something abstruse we will realize that the actual Phantom Thread is a love story that is “sick”. This film is probably Anderson’s most straight and simple film, but he is still absurd. In fact, the top part is somewhat ridiculous if we were not washed away before. On the surface Anderson packed the film as a dark film but there was a strange warmth flowing beneath it.

Final Destination ‘Will Be Rebooted, Involve’ Saw ‘Writers’

Final Destination ‘Will Be Rebooted, Involve’ Saw ‘Writers’

Adding to the long list of old franchised franchises, this time the Final Destination is ready to spawn the latest series that repeats everything from the beginning.

Acting as a production house was New Line, the studio behind the success of the Final Destination franchise in the early 2000s. Even though the five Final Destination films have never received a warm welcome from critics, this line of sadistic horror films has its own appeal in attracting audiences, as evidenced by the total revenue of $ 665 million made by the five films.

The last time Final Destination launched the latest series in 2011, and after all this time being left retired, this franchise was re-turned on to the studio in the form of a reboot whose script was written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. They both seem to be familiar with blood-soaked films, considering that both of them have written the scripts of four Saw films (starting in the fourth series) plus Piranha 3DD. Patrick and Marcus are also involved in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, a horror film from Guillermo del Toro that is ready for release in August 2019.

Broadly speaking, the five Final Destination films tell a handful of people who survived the deadly accident. The survivors were then warned by the main character that they would be killed in a pathetic manner. Unfortunately, even though the protagonist had already explained the bad signs he felt, the survivors were killed one by one in a series of incidents that were unusual and out of reason.

According to the news from THR, Patrick and Marcus will update the premise of Final Destination reboot, although it is not yet known what changes they want to make. Meanwhile, New Line – which is on the wind because the horror films are always successful – currently still has not determined the director.

Aquaman Has The Potential To Have a Sequel

Aquaman Has The Potential To Have a Sequel

Until this moment, Aquaman has not aired in theaters. But with a positive response in the initial screening and predictions of a solid box office debut, this film directed by James Wan had a big chance of being successful. Knowing that, Toby Emmerich as the leader of Warner Bros. now it has begun to set off to overtake Aquaman’s sequel.

Indeed the making of Aquaman 2 is only a discourse and there has not been any decision about the project. Even the script has not been done yet, as no one has occupied the position of script writer and director. However, according to a report from THR, Emmerich felt the discussion related to the Aquaman sequel was not too early, especially after the first film was estimated to have earned domestic income above $ 65 million in the first week. What’s more, Aquaman 2’s discourse also appeared thanks to the critics’ warm welcome to the first film at the initial screening.

Well, hopefully if Aquaman later proves to be financially and critically successful, WB will bring Wan back to direct the acting duo of the main actors Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Amber Heard (Mera). The reason, one of the things that was often appreciated by critics from Aquaman was Wan’s steady direction. Uniquely, in the same news from THR, Wan acknowledged that he and Heard often joked that Aquaman’s first film should be titled The Adventures of Mera With Her Sidekick Aquaman, because the heroine which he said almost always appeared in each of these scenes had more super power than the king of Atlantis.

Setting after the Justice League, this film tells Arthur Curry a.k.a. Aquaman who realized he was the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis and he had to lead his people to protect the world from threats. Previously, Wan signaled Aquaman would resemble the Raiders of the Lost Ark, where the adventures of Aquaman and his partner, Mera, would be an exciting spectacle.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

The third franchise from HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON will soon be enjoyed by animated film lovers in the world. Different from the previous two films, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3 will be given the subtitles of THE HIDDEN WORLD.

No doubt, according to the title, this film will again tell the adventures of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his cute dragon Night Furry in searching for a secret world that has been considered a myth. In addition, Night Furry will later meet and fall in love with other female dragons with the type of Light Furry.

Both of these dragons are equally rare but unfortunately, there is a new figure in this film namely Grimmel the Grisly (F. Abraham Murray) who is in charge of hunting night furry dragons throughout the world. Feeling threatened, Hiccup decided to alienate all dragons in Berk by hiding at The Hidden World.

If previously Toothless was very identical to his funny and adorable behavior, at a glance in the trailer there was one scene which was quite unexpected. After meeting Light Furry, Toothless also shows his ability as alpha (dragon ruler).

Together with Hiccup, he will be the one who will lead all the dragons in Berk to go to The Hidden World. But of course, the trip won’t be that easy. There are so many obstacles that they have to face together.

Review: Roma

Review: Roma

Rome is the latest film from Alfonso Cuaron, a great filmmaker who is the first Mexican director to ever get an Oscar. He called this film his “most personal” film so far. It might be personal for the Cuaron, but what is clear is that it’s not for me. His expertise in directing is clearly displayed on the screen, we immediately know that this film must have been made by people who are talented from birth or perhaps already have a lot of experience. However, I did not feel the impact of this film as he (I think) he meant. Do I have to go to a psychiatrist?

This film is a semiautobiographical film from Cuaron about his childhood in the 70s in a city called Rome in Mexico. Instead of focusing on his childhood life, Cuaron chose to tell a side that has not been told, about important people who are often forgotten. He gave a tribute to a person who was almost a lifetime nameless, but had greatly contributed to raising him.

It is also interesting to watch films that place more boisterous elements, and are usually more cinematic, in the background, while non-dramatic elements are the main part. From the beginning Cuaron had hinted this through a simple opening scene but had strong impressions. We see planes flying in the sky through reflections of puddles on the floor. The floor was flooded because it was being dipel.

The one who mopped it was Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), one of two assistants who worked for a middle class family consisting of Sofia’s mother (Arina de Tavira), father (Fernando Grediaga), and four small children. Together with his friend, Adela (Nancy Garcia), Cleo diligently and tirelessly takes care of the household, from washing, cooking, caring for children, to cleaning the floor from dog poop which is like never ending.

Bird Box Breaking Record In Netflix

Bird Box Breaking Record In Netflix

In its efforts to compete with Hollywood studios, Netflix often produces original films that are not less interesting than films that air in theaters. After Rome’s work by Alfonso Cuaron successfully amazed critics, there was one more Netflix original film that later became the spotlight.

The film is titled Bird Box, which is often compared to A Quiet Place. Armed with a unique premise and a pretty good quality film, Bird Box has just broken the record as a Netflix production film with the most viewers in the first week, which Bright previously held. No kidding, Netflix’s official Twitter account announced, there were 45,037,125 accounts watching Bird Box in the first seven days of release.

For information, the Bird Box is a sci-fi horror film made by Susanne Bier who put up Oscar-winning actress, Sandra Bullock, as the main star. The story itself focuses on the struggle of a mother and child through a dangerous river, to find shelter from the attacks of mysterious monsters that threaten the world. Unfortunately, to be able to escape the terror of this invisible monster, humans must close their eyes, which makes Bullock’s character journey more challenging and thrilling.

Bird Box is known to launch on the Netflix streaming service on December 21, 2018. The popularity of Bird Box immediately gave birth to many funny memes on social media, followed by various theories and discussions that discussed mysterious monsters in the film. Although classified as a critic among critics, in fact Bird Box is also a lot of thumbs up by horror movie lovers.
