MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21

WONDER WOMAN 1984---new Japanese trailer released for the sequel.

LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrE20S54Hz4



JAMES BOND---a rumor claims Tom Hardy was offered the 007 role in June and the announcement will be made in November for the tentative NO TIME TO DIE premiere or early 2021. Hardy is 43 years old, which would make him second to Roger Moore's 45 when he first appeared as James Bond in LIVE AND LET DIE. Earlier, Hardy commented on the rumor, “If I mention it, it’s gone. You know, there’s a saying amongst us in the fraternity of acting, and in the fellowship of my peer group, that if you talk about it you’re automatically out of the race. So I can’t possibly comment on that one”.
However, one British newspaper columnist doubted the credibility of the rumor which originated on, "...an unsourced post on a Star Trek blog that hardly anyone has heard of."





SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY---Alden Ehrenreich said the news media was a factor in the movie being a disappointment, “[SOLO] didn’t do as well as other STAR WARS movies, but it still did well for a movie. And so it was kind of this medium thing. But that’s not newsworthy. Even at high-level journalism, there’s an intense pressure, sometimes, it feels like, to [either] catastrophize or celebrate. And I think that’s really f—ing dangerous, especially when it pertains to the stuff that really matters, like the state of the world.
An article headline that says 'things are complicated, and there are good sides and bad sides' isn’t getting the emotional response. And I just think we really have to take a step back, and give a lot more thought to the way our emotions are being run by the stories we’re getting inundated with.” SOLO made $393 million versus its almost $300 million production cost.





THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST---Jim Caviezel commented on the status of the long-gestating sequel, “Mel Gibson just sent me the third picture, the third draft. It’s coming. It’s called THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST: RESURRECTION. It’s going to be the biggest film in world history.”

THE HUNT FOR ATLANTIS---Netflix movie franchise underway based on the novel about a billionaire who hires a brilliant female graduate student and an ex-SAS commando to win a race to find the lost city of Atlantis. The novel is the first of a 15 novel series.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN---Queen Elizabeth II stripped sexual predator/producer Harvey Weinstein of his Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) which was awarded in 2004. The announcement said his CBE, “shall be cancelled and annulled and that his name shall be erased from the Register of the said Order.”

SPACEBALLS---after the success of composing the GHOSTBUSTERS theme, Ray Parker Jr. was approached by Mel Brooks for his SPACEBALLS parody movie, which he declined. Parker said he was, "...fooling around, doing something, chasing girls or waterskiing." He said he would welcome a second chance to work with Brooks.

ROMY AND MICHELE'S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION---Mira Sorvino said she wants to return for a possible sequel, “It’s not in my hands. It’s up to Disney. I would be so grateful if they would decide to do it.” She added, “I know that Lisa and that [screenwriter] Robin Schiff is interested in it. Maybe Alan [Cumming] is interested in it. I heard that maybe Janeane [Garofalo] is interested in it.”

TRIVIA---more James Bond movie trivia.
Carey Lowell co-starred with Talisa Soto as the Bond Girls in LICENSE TO KILL, Timothy Dalton's last James Bond movie. Lowell also co-starred with Soto's husband, Benjamin Bratt, in LAW & ORDER.

Jesus wept! Old Tim looks like he's enjoying every minute of his last time in the role there. Good on 'im, and I would be doing the same in his shoes, ha, ha.

Tom Hardy is a perfect fit for Bond. Ok, he might not be everyone's idea of suave but he will have the height and weight, plus his own charm to be the best since Connery. Mainly because Connery probably had more beef than was originally thought of by Fleming (who liked the idea of David Niven). But he was the first and set the whole movie franchise in motion.

Tom Hardy as Bond is too short (5'9"), too old and is COVERED in tattoos. If not for those 3 things though....

Daniel Craig is only 5'10".

As dragon's post said, Roger Moore was 45 when he started as Bond. Was he too old?

Where did we leave The Passion? Oh yes, the temple in Jerusalem was left with a Harvey Dent and there are only three days left to rebuild it. I'll admit to being a bit curious as to how the first time round can be topped. That is the claim. I can't help feeling that Gibson and his team have to be game, set and match to take on the final part of ET, which basically sets the yardstick for getting to the finish line with maximum tearflow. Aided and abetted by the score, of course.

Considering that was four years older than Connery was when he hung up the tux, yes, he was.

Remember they had to tailor Roger Moore's movies to his limited physicallity for the role and his more comedic style. It worked for RM, but I don't think they will ever go back to that type of Bond movie. Yes, Daniel Craig is too short too, in fact, I think TH would have been a better Bond than Craig. (Yes, of course in my opinion. Tom Hardy certainly has the intensity for the role)

RE: Solo- While I agree the news media are sensationalists it had nothing to do with the failure of the film. It wasn’t a good movie and they put way to much money into it. The general public was in agreement on this one.

The Bond thing is bullshit. EON has always made it a point to have a press junket for announcing a new man in the role; they wouldn't let this slip out. Not to mention, it would look very bad if they announced a new actor before letting the new film out. Thats a PR SNAFU they wouldn't allow.

The website only started the rumor to get click / ad revenue, which I'm sure it has in spades - but it doesn't link to anything or anyone or has anything that can be confirmed. Its a rumor mill and a shoddy one at that.

That said, Tom Hardy is having the same career Colin Ferrel had, where they keep trying to shoehorn him into action movies and he repeatedly ends up the worst element in the whole.

You'r right about Colin Farrell. If he has an Irish accent and is in an offbeat film that allows him to be comedic, he's great: In Bruges, The Lobster. In anything else where he has to have an American accent he really suffers.

When its made over $2 billion then I'll consider what you've said.

SOLO was an absolutely brilliant movie, one of the very best that year - and I wish I could tell that to Ehrenreich personally. A shame it didn't fare better, because I would have LOVED to see a sequel -- especially with that whole Darth Maul sub plot.

This is very odd. Why not make the sequel 15 years ago? Passion was made in 2004. Christ was resurrected after 3 days, and Caviezel is now 16 years older. Will they "deage" him?

Being dead for three days would add years on anyone, Joan.

There just waiting for the return of the real deal. Why settle for knockoffs?

Daniel Craig was an ok change of pace for James Bond, but it's time to find someone a little taller, a little suaver, and a little more sophisticated for the next round of movies.
Tom Hardy would be a mistake.

The Broccoli family also needs to sit down and watch all of their own movies from the beginning to understand what worked for 45 years and how they're currently messing up a good thing.
