news number 60 talking about the latest happenings in film and tv have a wonderful week now let us coming from what happened on film in the television world last weekend. Let's start with this weekend's box office numbers worldwide, they're hoping to hit 100 million to make a profitable film that gets a bigger release this weekend. It attracted three million which is pretty solid for a small independent film like this fall which will open to 1400 theaters where it is expected to make a two million dollar It will also be streaming at the same time e.t the extraterrestrial had its 40th birthday. anniversary re-released in imax, which we've obviously seen grossed a million dollars in its 389 auditoriums for th The three-day weekend also marks the first time a Steven Spielberg-directed film will be screened in Imax.
Jaws will also hit theaters in Real at Imax. On September 2nd we should take mom to see Jaws I Love It one of her favorite
movies has surpassed $100 million at the worldwide box office which is very rare for a writer and director to make the in their first
movie or their first three Passing $100 million milestone eaten with each of my films I'm not sure if it's ever been done with anyone who's also done R-rated films so that's quite a feat for Jordan Peele. I wonder if Shyamalan did it. I don't know how much money I'm The first one he made six cents ago yeah you're right you're right and then we have a day shift for another new release which is Netflix's latest release, and i can tell you first hand why was the worst promoted
movie of the year did you watch the whole thing i had to turn it halfway so you asked me last night if you wanted to see the day shift and i thought i literally blew up what did i say i was like you still trust in netflix
movies that's like no i was like it's friday it's vampires i mean how can you screw up netflix there are some great vampire
movies but they're usually a good time but there would you be surprised at how few vampires there are in this film i originally had absolutely no faith in netflix and i could tell they have an instagram account like 200 followers in.
I think they realize that investing money to even market this
movie isn't worth it, but I'm glad you actually tried. I tried. I tried. I love Jordy Fox. i love vampires Yeah, but yeah What was up man, on to the
news, oh I'm so glad I didn't Now we gotta read the
news We gotta read the
news. I'm here. Actress and singer Olivia Newton-John has passed away at the age of 73. Our mother really loved Olivia Newton John so we listen to a lot of her albums also another uh actress died and shea died uh i think it was yesterday she she finally died she had a car accident and was in a coma for a few days and then she unfortunately succumbed to her injuries yes she was on life support and the family released her from life support it is a very very sad situation the first picture of
depp as king louis the 15th was made for the french drama jean du barry published it follows the story of real-life historical figure jean-dew berry who was louis 15th last lover who lived in abject poverty because barry went from a working class woman to kurdistan and louie's favorite mate they fell in love and she moved to versailles for versailles, much to the annoyance of the gospel court, which is now scandalized d by their presence sounds interesting, this fil m going to get a lot of buzz because it's the first project for the dying
depp since yes i definitely won't be making any money but we'll see i wonder if he'll be fine at least we're streaming yes i will probably stream but i'm not sure if jens ohren is a lot of
moviegoers for stuff like that anyway yes maybe the pirate
movie would be a big hit if it wasn't but it seems interesting and you really the pic looks cool he wears like uh he is uh his eyes are covered by a headscarf great costume yeah the makeup is really cool so dc huge
news yeah dc has
rumors that isn't, nothing has been confirmed, but there's a lot of rumor speculating about the
Flash, and there's a lot of rumor talking about three different possibilities DC is considering regarding the project, the
Flash they either make because it's final con verses where they are now t they got arrested and they are going to court for burglary oh my god so then i think they are so they have three options either release and have ezra attend and no option in marketing and press, or they do the release and they have Ezra put out a public statement, probably on video, telling the world what's going on and filling in and apologizing, or they might even scrap the whole project altogether, what the third option is so either i mean it looks like the third option is the best because this
movie is still not coming out for 10
more months and expect ezra mill to be her best for the next 10 months will show behavior?
I doubt it, so I have a feeling they'll probably scrap it, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, ezra was even recalled for regularly scheduled additional summer photo shoots for the
Flash, which happened even after she shot
more than once earlier this year had been charged and arrested that Hawaii was in. This suggests that while Miller has a problem, a difficult relationship with the discovery of the Law Warren Brothers will get her behind the camera and behind her and moving forward with the additional footage , which is now a very controversial situation has been released so all this drama has been going on in the controversy, they've been researching with him all along so this is a mess and I honestly think they're probably going to scrap it, because i said it you expect ezra to know in the next 10 months before the
movie release has problems.
Yeah I don't know I would say if I say if they release it Ezra Miller is in no way involved in the press tour shape or form no red carpets no interviews no talk shows it would be a disaster because of it there's just so much negative heat in the film, there's a I mean, and that's unlike Batgirl, that's not, that's, uh, that's what it's got, it's got a $200 million budget, but they have probably put almost $350 million into this project I can't write it off, I don't think like they did with Batgirl and cost her um less, but I mean that's a lot of money to invest in a project to just pulling the plug so they have to decide soon it's probably going to be a half billion dollar project yes an investment that is very absurd so I don't know what's going to happen but let's move on to some
news pass that sometimes Cruz and his film partner Christopher Mcquarrie want to make a musical film and other films, they also plan to make another action film with potential for an off-mission franchise impossible, according to Deadline their plans go even further and include a desire to make a I'm doing Ovie Musical something to do with cruises and also something to do with Cruz's Tropic Thunder studio executive Les Grossman so in addition to the two possible mission films coming out about three or four other projects they are developing report me for a less lavish
movie and they're going and they're going to go into space with doug lyman and he's 60. is he i thought he's older than this no he's 60. my god yeah he just doesn't slow down it's amazing he's got six huge projects in the series like he has no intention of slowing down, he's the tom brady of acting, he just listens h never up and he he's still at the top of his height, uh, he's still at his peak, still at his peak, there's no peak for Tom Cruise, I always go up and I will for every single one of you show up, the top gun is still in theaters. listen we should call this we should do it like a top cruise podcast we will talk enough about that next up we have craven the hunter
news a loud star kev uh atj craven aaron taylor johnson i read this does sorry i was reviewing it i thought you would understand and i was like oh this is like a maybe like who's atg you are like a singer craven is shot entirely on location which will make all the difference it's going to be something really beautiful to add to our personal story and also set Craven apart from the Marvel stage look.
It's important that this character is in the real world, it's also important for the authenticity of the story, walking the streets barefoot and you're picking up on those elements and playing around with them, so I like that approach to filmmaking that's possible and so the practicality of filmmaking I really enjoyed that aspect of the approach that filmmakers must crave. I think that bodes well for the film. It seems like it's going to be some city exterior shots as a lot of the step photos were He's running through the cities and jumping on cars and stuff. Also, it was shot almost entirely in London in England so I'm assuming there aren't many exotic locations in this film as we may not be in London but London there will be plenty of trolleys could be Emily Blunt in Ryan Gosling and David Leach's Fall Guy film, which we all knew when we saw it we did the Q a After Bullet Train with David Leach and his producing partner Kelly McCormick.
They talked about this
movie Falling Guy starting filming in a few months in Australia might be Australia so they will join here so two excellent leads for this role. This film is an adaptation of the classic 1980's television series of the same name that aired on ABC and followed a trio of Hollywood stunt performers who are looking for a side hustle as bounty hunters, sounds like a really cool time, that's a great cat, a casting -duo for emily blunt and ryan gosling yes i think they will be dynamic ic on screen next she
hulk officially premieres on august 18th on disney plus so to all marvel fans august 18th is the tag and it has been confirmed that not only will daredevil appear in the show but captain america will also have a cameo Appearance Thomas Jane was recently interviewed and spoke about how Punisher his
movie almost got a sequel and they tried to selling the idea to various directors, but the studios, writers and filmmakers can never really make the project work, and there's the butt tending to rob zombies The sequel and the details were eventually scrapped with amazement at the top of the film. sorry you know that
movie the original predator i mean punisher it's a cool
movie it was premature sure i liked it it was pre superhero craze and that
movie was epic travolta's death in that oh man so good awesome so i think thomas jane did a great job he is a perfect punisher yes it is a tough character we have seen him many times they are early adaptations on tv with the butterfly knife there weren't many superhero
movies that came out.
You know, there are
movies like Daredevil, Punisher, yeah, studios, a lot of times they're headed towards R-rated
movies because Like Blade was a franchise, and I think, like, I think the studios didn't see the potential for that the kid-friendly superheroes of PG-13 had and that's why they always went for the hard-nosed hard-R
movies like Punisher and those others because I think they thought it would do better and kids didn't show up, um seeing the other superheroes, so it's interesting to see how they realized that when we started making pg pg-13 superhero
movies, we made bank. I think they saw the dark knight in dark knight rises and spider-man yeah yeah spider-man trilogy sure is ok next we have
news four where we talk about superheroes uh the russian brothers the next
movie the electric state, which currently stars millie bobby brown and chris pratt, just added an absolute stac ked cast including stanley tucci, michelle yeo and brian cox the story is set in an alternate off starring a logan roy reference is sequel the story is set in an alternate future where it follows a teenage girl played by millie bobby brown who realizes
