There's no information on how big of a role Bruce Lee will play in the story, but it's great to know that he will in some way be involved with the story. You can see a Tweet from Moh below honoring Lee along with one of his videos.
It's been 45 years since this man passed. #brucelee has inspired me in so many ways... Martial arts, acting, his philosophies on life. But look at the loving way he looked at his children. I know the exact feeling he felt ❤️ RIP Bruce. Walk on 🌊 pic.twitter.com/H0xjb0GSKJ
Tarantino's new film has been described as a Pulp Fiction-like film that centers on characters around Los Angeles in the summer of 1969. The Manson Family murders serve as a backdrop to the story, which follows the two lead characters Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), a former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), who will be played by Robbie.
Damian Lewis will play Steve McQueen; Dakota Fanning is set as Squeaky Fromme, the Manson follower who later tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford; Nicholas Hammond will play director Sam Wanamaker; and Emile Hirsch is playing Jay Sebring, the Hollywood hairstylist who was one of four victims in the Tate murders. Luke Perry will play Scotty Lancer, Clifton Collins Jr. will play Ernesto The Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson is Land Pirate Keith, and Al Pacino is playing Marvin Schwarz, who will be DiCaprio’s character’s agent in the story.
The movie also stars James Marsden, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant, Burt Reynolds, and Tim Roth. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be released on August 9th, 2019.

Thanks to Tom Holland, we have a video from the set of Spider-Man: Far From Home featuring a scene being shot where we see Peter Parker (Holland's stunt double) being blown away by a burst of water.
This video has fans speculating that one of the other villains that could show up in the film is Hydro-Man. I guess that could be a possibility, but there also could be a ton of other reasons as to why Peter Parker is being blasted with water. But... if it is Hydro-Man... cool! For those of you not familiar with Hydro-Man, he's a villain that has the power to manipulate water.
Holland shared the the video as a way to promote a charity he's involved with called The Brothers Trust, which was started by his parents. Fans who donate to the cause will be entered for a chance to come hang out with Holland on the set of the film.
All we know about the sequel so far is that Peter Parker will be on summer vacation with his friends in Europe and that he will be facing off with the villain Mysterio. You can read up on some additional rumored information regarding Far From Homehere.
The movie stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Michael Keaton, Jake Gyllenhaal, J.B. Smoove, and Numan Acar.
Jon Watts is directing the film from a script written by Erik Sommers and Chris McKenna. Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters July 5, 2019.
Would you want to see Hydro-Man in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel?
Ronald D. Moore has filled out the main cast of his upcoming Apple sci-fi series. Joel Kinnaman, who most recently starred in Netflix's Altered Carbon, is set to take on the lead role. The story is set on a world where the global space race never ended and Kinnaman will play a man named Edward Baldwin, who is one of the top NASA astronauts.
It's great to see Kinnaman land another big series role. He is also attached to star in the Amazon series adaptation of the film Hanna and is also known for his roles on the shows House of Cards and The Killing.
The series also cast Michael Dorman (Patriot) and Sarah Jones (Alcatraz) in the series and they have been cast as Gordo and Tracy Stevens, a prominent NASA couple.
There's no title for the series yet, but I've liked the work that Moore has done in the past so I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. It certainly has an interesting premise.
Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool creative team were on cloud nine after Deadpool ended up being a huge hit at the box office and it didn't take long for them to get to work on developing a sequel. The first thing that happens in that process, though, is to come up with an initial idea for the story and Reynolds pitched a really weird one that the studio was not impressed with.
While talking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, The actor shared the pitch that he made and it involved a heist based around Deadpool stealing the big red chair from the TV show The Voice. As you might imagine, the idea was rejected! He says:
“At the time – my first pitch to the studio was not met very well. I pitched them for [Deadpool 2]… the whole story of the movie would be Deadpool trying to steal the big, red chair from The Voice. And they were like: ‘That’s just the dumbest thing ever.’”
That might have made a fun little gag in the film, but to set a whole story around that is kinda ridiculous. Think about it, the success of a billion-dollar film franchise could have rested on a sequel based on a joke about stealing a piece of furniture from a TV show! At the same time, it's Deadpool, so anything is possible!
I mean, I can see why Deadpool would want the chair. I'm sure he could put it to good use. In the end, I liked the direction that they ended up talking the story. He went on to talk about that little Brad Pitt cameo in the film as The Vanisher, and explains that it was a hard sell:
"He doesn’t speak and he’s invisible. And [Fox] are like, ‘Why Brad Pitt?’ Oh, because you see him, you know, for a quarter of a second… then he unfortunately dies by electrocution."
I'm still surprised that they managed to get Brad Pitt to do that! That was so great! Anyway, what do you think about the initial pitch that Reynolds made for Deadpool 2?
Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 10 years of Marvel trying to get everyone into superheroes. It’s finally out on Digital, Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K which means that fans will be re-watching the film several times to find all the little Easter eggs and references. The home release also means that Screen Junkies has finally given the film the Honest Trailer treatment. The film may have been great, but that doesn’t mean people won’t find things to laugh at.
If you're still wondering whether or not the scene at the end of Inception was reality or a dream, Michael Caine might have an answer for you. The actor revealed even he was confused when he first received the script for the film, and didn't know which parts of the film took place in reality and which ones took place in a dream. Caine recently revealed at a London screening for the film (via Syfy Wire) that Christopher Nolan helped him understand things more easily, and told him the scenes he was in were real:
"When I got the script of Inception, I was a bit puzzled by it, and I said to him, 'I don't understand where the dream is. I said, 'When is it the dream and when is it reality?' He said, 'Well, when you're in the scene it's reality.' So, get that -- if I'm in it, it's reality. If I'm not in it, it's a dream."
Well, there's the answer, Inception has a happy ending. That said, Nolan has gone on record to say the ending of the film is meant to be intentionally ambiguous, so if you're someone who really doesn't want this film to have a happy ending, be sure to point that out when someone mentions this quote.
That said, I've always been curious: were you a fan of Inception's ambiguous ending, or did you feel like you needed an answer for what happened?
Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming Israeli spy thriller The Angel. The film is based on the true story of a man named Ashraf Marwan, "who was Egyptian President Nasser's son-in-law, and special advisor and confidant to his successor Anwar Sadat, while simultaneously one of Israeli Intelligence's most precious assets of the 20th century."
This Looks like a solid spy movie and the fact that it's based on a true story makes it even more interesting. The film stars Marwan Kenzari (The Promise), Toby Kebbell (War for the Planet of the Apes) and Hannah Ware (Aftermath).
The Angel was directed by Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) from a script by David Arata (Children of Men). It will premiere on Netflix on September 14, 2018.
I've got a fun trailer for an action-packed zombie film for you to check out called Redcon-1. Don't write this movie off just because it's another Zombie film, it actually looks like it could be a good and entertaining movie! Especially with zombies that have enhanced combat and fighting skills!
The story follows a squad of eight Special Forces soldiers who embark on a suicide mission to rescue an important scientist from a city that is overrun with zombies. The film is also said to include "genuine relentless fight action and bristling with real military hardware."
After a zombie apocalypse spreads from a London prison, the UK is brought to its knees. The spread of the virus is temporarily contained but, without a cure, it’s only a matter of time before it breaks its boundaries and the biggest problem of all… any zombies with combat skills are now enhanced. With the South East of England quarantined from the rest of the world using fortified borders, intelligence finds that the scientist responsible for the outbreak is alive and well in London. With his recovery being the only hope of a cure, a squad of eight Special Forces soldiers is sent on a suicide mission to the city, now ruled by the undead, with a single task: get him out alive within 72 hours by any means necessary. What emerges is an unlikely pairing on a course to save humanity against ever-rising odds.
The cast of the film includes Oris Erhuero, Carlos Gallardo, Mark Strange, Katarina Leigh Waters, Martyn Ford, Joshua Dickinson, Michael Sheehan, Akira Koieyama, Euan Macnaughton, Marc Baylis, and Madeleine Kelly.
