It’s that time again: time to round up everything coming and going from all the streaming services at the start of the new month. Netflix has a pretty fantastic slate for this June, which includes their Cannes contender Okja, directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal. There’s also a few popular 2016 releases like Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only the End of the World, and Catfight, that movie about Sandra Oh and Anne Heche beating the living daylights out of each other. And if you want to hear a bunch of animated plants sing Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” give Trolls a shot.
Some days it seems like a new sequel rumor hits the Internet every day. Whispers of Top Gun 2 have been floating around the stratosphere for a few years, with the movie even getting a screenwriter at one point, Val Kilmer vowing to return, and even a mysterious meeting with Jerry Bruckheimer. Sometimes, because of timing or lack of resources or myriad other reasons, sequels just don’t end up happening even if they’re hyped. But today brings good news for Top Gun 2 hopefuls: it’s definitely happening, and Tom Cruise himself says it’ll start filming within the next twelve months.
Mel Brooks is arguably the king of cult classics, having made a ton of movies in his heyday that are still just as funny now as they were in the ’70s and ’80s. And since the current climate in Hollywood is a combination of sequels, reboots, and nostalgia, it’s no wonder that at least one Brooks comedy is looking to get a sequel. Brooks recently revealed that he’s been chatting with MGM about the possibility of a sequel to his immortal Star Wars send-up Spaceballs.
Because Disney and Lucasfilm are, by now, experts at releasing only as scant an amount of information as they want to, we know next to nothing about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We know who’s in it, and who most of them will be playing, and that Mark Hamill finally has lines this time, but aside from that, it’s all a big mystery. There are a few big questions raised in The Force Awakens that Last Jedi will have to answer, one way or another, but a new Japanese poster suggests that the movie is going to drop a pretty huge bombshell — the hugest in Star Wars history, no less.
Since online pirates tend to view “don’t steal stuff” as more of a guideline than an actual rule, it’s no surprise that eventually they’d start taking aim at Hollywood. And, hey, why not start big, with, say, Disney, the biggest studio in the business? And instead of pilfering something like Coco, how about going after, I dunno, maybe Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth installment in one of the most recognizable brands worldwide? Well, that’s exactly what a group of hackers apparently did.
Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has finally hit theaters, Disneyland is firing up the marketing campaign for their Tower of Terror revamp Mission: Breakout! The ride enlists resort attendees on a mission to help the Guardians of the Galaxy escape the Collector’s stronghold, and uses music cues from some of the greatest Awesome Mix hits.
Vin Diesel is kinda like that guy at all the parties who always wants to talk to you about his awesome new startup. It’s gonna be the best, way better than the last one, it’s gonna win tons of awards and make billions of dollars. Sure, Vin, you say. That sounds great. But he just keeps doing it. It comes from a good place: the man loves his movies. But, boy, does he love hyping them even more. Most recently, he suggested that we haven’t even seen Groot’s mega-evolution yet — the first two forms have just been kid stuff.
Yes, Robert Downey, Jr. is definitely going to play Doctor Dolittle, the veterinarian who can talk to animals. Sure, fine, cool. And for those of you who are interested, there’s some good news: you won’t have to wait as long to see it, since the release date of the film has been pushed up a month to accommodate for Star Wars: Episode 9.
From what we hear about Jurassic World 2, it’s going to be a heck of a lot different from Jurassic World, and from most of the rest of the Jurassic movies. We don’t know a ton about the plot, but we do know that the dinosaurs will be used as a kind of metaphor for the treatment of animals in modern society. There’s a lot this movie can do with this: the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park are genetically engineered, making them, by law, property of the InGen bioengineering company. But how can you own a living creature, really? James Cromwell says that his Jurassic World 2 character will be used to examine this situation.
Amazon released their list of what to look forward to streaming on their instant video service next month, and May has some absolute winners. Not only did the site nab Oscar nominee Manchester by the Sea, they’ll also have available to stream last year’s Best Picture winner Moonlight, their new Original Series Dino Dana and I Love Dick, and a ton of classic James Bond movies.
