ANIMANIACS--trailer released foe the Hulu animated series.

WILLOW---Warwick Davis is returning for the untitled Lucasfilm/Disney+ tv series sequel to the 1988 Ron Howard movie. John M. Chu (CRAZY RICH ASIANS) will direct the pilot. Jonathan Kasdan (SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY) is the writer.




BACK TO THE FUTURE 4---co-writer Bob Gale commented on a fourth movie, "We told a complete story with the trilogy. If we went back and made another one, we’d have Michael J. Fox, who will be sixty next year, and he has Parkinson’s Disease. Do we want to see Marty McFly at age sixty with Parkinson’s Disease? Did we want to see him at age fifty with Parkinson’s Disease? I would say ‘No, you don’t want to see that.’ And you don’t want to see BACK TO THE FUTURE without Michael J. Fox. People say, ‘Well, do it with somebody else.’ Really? Who are you going to get? All you’re gonna do is beg comparisons to the originals, and you’re not going to match up. And we’ve seen this repeatedly with sequels that go back to the well after many, many years, and they go ‘Ah, well, THE PHANTOM MENACE, maybe my life would have been better if I hadn’t seen it.’ There are a lot of extra sequels like that. We didn’t want to be those guys who did a movie that was basically a moneygrab. Universal says to us, ‘You’d guys would make a whole lot of money,’ but we’re like, ‘Well, we’ve already made a whole lot of money with these movies, and we like them just the way they are. And as proud parents, we’re not going to sell our kids into prostitution.’"
He added, "We have an understanding with Spielberg and Amblin that there would never be another BACK TO THE FUTURE movie without our blessing or being involved. So, it's not going to happen."





DAY SHIFT---Jamie Foxx will star in this Netflix movie about a man who works as pool cleaner to support his young daughter and his real occupation as a vampire hunter.

THE SON---Jake Gyllenhaal will star in this Denis Villeneuve/HBO movie based on the Jo Nesbo novel.

FAST & FURIOUS---the franchise will end with two more movies underway and Justin Lin returning as the director.

THE WOMAN IN THE HOUSE---Kristen Bell will star in this Netflix eight-part miniseries whose synopsis says, "Bell plays the heartbroken Anna, a woman who sits with her wine, staring out the window and watching life go by without her. When a handsome neighbor moves in across the street, she starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?"

TRIVIA---character actor James Best, best known for THE DUKES OF HAZZARD and THE KILLER SHREWS, has an uncredited appearance in FORBIDDEN PLANET as a crewman on the C-57D spaceship.

Yeah, can't wait to see how much Oldman overacts (again) in this one.

Plus, I hope the film depicts F. Scott Fitzgerald referring to Mank as "Monkey Bitch", as he did in real life.

Ouch. There's a discussion for our next meeting. Oldman is my fourth favourite actor of all time (after Nicholson, Hopkins and Holm)! So this film is both attractive to me as a longtime Fincher AND Oldman fan. I hope it delivers.

Don't get me wrong: I adore the guy, but he's not exactly the "b" in subtle!

He can be, like in TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY. But yeah -- his ACTING-acting is why I like him so much.

I think your Nicholson obsession merits the discussion! Nicholson's not an actor I would associate with your taste, and I'm surprised you hold him in such high regard.

Ian Holm was a magnificent actor--among the best ever. I've always maintained that he would be considered the greatest ever--if he were six feet tall.

Even better if he were 66 feet tall.

Just saying.

He acted as though he were, making him all the greater.

Oh, wait! Am I missing a sci-fi reference?

Wow, like a dream. The only time I've ever seen anyone turn down an opportunity on a dragon53 post.

ageism
[ ey-jiz-uhm ]
a tendency to regard older persons as debilitated, unworthy of attention, or unsuitable for employment.

ableism
[ ey-buh-liz-uhm ]
the tendency to regard people with a disability as incomplete, diminished, or damaged, and to measure the quality of life with a disability against a nondisabled standard

I just... why would you say those things Bob?

I think its refreshingly honest. Do YOU want to see MJF return as Marty McFly in such a debilitating state? I think its far more disrespectful to push him out for display all for the sake of making more money. Let him have his private life and leave him alone.

I'll copy and paste my comments from the other side of the board: That music was really annoying. I really enjoyed Moana though I admit it was very derivative. This doesn't give me good vibes. Another film made for China. The protagonist looks like she came from the Tinker Bell series and comes off as oriental Rey. The fast cutting/slow mo shots don't excite me either.

Sure, I would love to see Marty back. It's always weird to me how some people immediately shoot down the reappearance of an old hero - immediately thinking that he or she will do the same stunts and physical acting as decades ago. Same with Indy and Ford too. Ultimately, it comes down to HOW they write the character. It obviously wouldn't make sense to have a 60-year-old Parkinson victim surf around on a hoverboard, but perhaps be in a mentor capacity in some form? A more laidback performance? Same for Christopher Lloyd too.

Perhaps Bob Gale should not waste his time presuming what we, the audience, would want to see.

I don`t want Hollywood to do a Back To The Future sequel or a prequel or a remake or a reboot. However with that said I could consider them to do a spin-off.

You see I have the idea of a spin-off that I think could work...as a television series. When Doc & Clara`s two kids Jules & Verne grow up they could perhaps go on to do some time travel adventures and that is something I would not mind see but they do not need to call it Back To The Future.

Reboot Back to the Future with Tom Holland as the new Marty McFly; he'd be great.

With covid the branding of Hollywood will be sky high, so yeah, it's refreshing to see someone who doesn't want to do it. Age, able, who really cares. It really isn't about that.

To be fair, he’s probably right that seeing a 60 year old Marty McFly with Parkinson’s behind the wheel of the Flying Delorean would be either tactlessly funny or horribly depressing and not really the feel good adventure the original trilogy was.
