They’ve been dating for a long time now, and speculation has been rife that Emma Stone and Dave McCary had secretly tied the knot. After months of rumours, it has been confirmed the two have indeed got married. It has been reported that Emma and Dave met each other in 2016, when she was a guest host on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and he was a segment director on the show.

While the couple revealed that they had got engaged back in December 2019, the wedding had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sources say that the two were to get married in March earlier this year, but postponed it. Now, however, it has been revealed that the two tied a knot although the exact date has not been confirmed. There was some speculation of the nuptials back in May, after the actress was seen sporting a gold band instead of her engagement ring in a video interview.

It is being reported that the couple opted for a quiet ceremony and wanted to keep things low-key given the current pandemic situation. Ever since the two started dating, Emma has refused to divulge too much about the relationship, preferring to keep it under wraps. The couple is yet to make an official announcement.

It's kind of a cheap card to promote a movie with a little baby. But that's just what "Rob-B-Hood" does. Entertainment for the whole family imbued with a good portion of an "Oh, how cute!"-element.

Career thieves Thongs (Jakie Chan or Thanh Long) and Octopus (Louis Koo) pull off a drugs heist at a vast Hong Kong hospital in the hope that the expensive medication can be sold off on the blackmarket. While their boss – simply known as ‘Landlord’ (Hui) – awaits their arrival. The two moderately inept crooks run into trouble with the hospital security and are nearly apprehended. But are ‘saved’ when all of the attention switches to an assailant intent on kidnapping a newborn baby and its mother. Thongs inadvertently becomes a hero and the two escape sans much of the booty they had managed to swipe. Nonetheless, both men soon squander what money they did make from the crime.

[Image: sieutrombaomau2.jpg]

Thongs blowing it on his gambling addiction and Octopus on showering his spoilt girlfriend with needless gifts. Neither has anything to show for their years of working on the other side of the law and neither heed the advice of Landlord who keeps his ill-gotten gains in a safe in his bedroom. In a moment of great irony, Landlord himself is burgled and his stash swiped in the blinking of an eye. A crime that leaves him with nothing for his impending dotage. One last great heist is planned. And this time it is the kidnap of the very same baby who Thongs saved earlier in his hospital escapade.

[Image: sieutrombaomau1.jpg]

The rumour that Rob-B-Hood had originally been envisaged as a much darker action film comes as little surprise. The theme of baby-napping is hard to match up with the kind of frothy family frolics lined up here. Essentially that proves to be at the very heart of the problem of the film. It cannot decide what tone it should adopt and what audience it should be attracting. Mixing zany Canto-comedy with Chan’s usual physical ingenuity, heavy melodrama and moments that hint at a darker underbelly beneath the main narrative. ‘Rob-B-Hood (Ke Hoach B) is a very unstable emulsion and an awkward production to appreciate all the way through.

Quote:It's also noteworthy how many cameos we have in "Rob-B-Hood".
[Image: sieutrombaomau.png]

After admirably trying to recall the great works of his youth with ‘New Police Story’. And dip his toe into the waters of historical adventure with ‘The Myth’. Jackie descends into a calculated attempt to appease the Hong Kong public with ‘Rob-B-Hood’. A film that is a backwards step for a star who still offers so much. It almost appears as if Chan has accepted his advancing years. Yet seems scared to go for a straight dramatic role that doesn’t overtly target the box-office. This attitude is a disservice to Jackie Chan and the skills he has an actor and film-maker. He may not be Tony Leung Chiu-Wai or Wong Kar-Wai. But he certainly as enough cinematic savvy to break free from people’s misconceptions about him. Even in the action-comedy sub-genre he has so often excelled in there should still be so much more from Chan.

Quote:It seems lazy to rely on the charms of a baby to accrue box-office dollars.

Yet so many films from so many countries have tried it to obvious success. Not that the idea of using a baby as the main star is inherently awful. But too many film-makers just plonk the infant in front of the lens, ignore silly things like storylines and what for the audiences to go melt (‘Three Men And A Baby’ comes to mind). Rob-B-Hood does at least offer a few distractions from this trick and attempts to develop its characters beyond mere ciphers. Jackie plays against type as a hopeless gambler who is a disappointment to his elderly father while Louis Koo (Co Thien Lac) once again mocks his slick image by appearing as an under-the-thumb lothario.

[Image: sieutrombaomau3.jpg]

Some of the sub-plots are throwaway devices with little real importance other than the chance to shoe-horn in another popular actor. But a few seem to have enough life of their own. The mentally unstable villain is an unusual. Yet welcome inclusion and even helps us feel some measure of sympathy for his mourning. Enough ideas are thrown at the screen so that some stick and others flounder though the weaker moments tend to slow the pace right down.

Quote:Sadly, "Rob-B-Hood" is full of flaws as already stated.

Rob-B-Hood boasts a luxuriant budget that makes its presence felt through every frame of the production. It’s well shot, well-
designed and packed with intriguing sets. From the incredible hospital location at the beginning to the ice-shrine of the finale. The cast is also full of legends and current stars with Chan, Hui and Biao rubbing shoulders with Choi, Koo and Daniel Wu, albeit in a cameo. That so much was packed into this film makes its shortcomings more difficult to stomach. Yuen Biao is such a welcome figure on the screen that seeing him eventually marginalised to what amounts to an extended cameo is hard to bear.

[Image: baybym.jpg]

At over two hours long, this is a film that never understands the limitations of its concept. And eventually gets dragged into maudlin melodrama. This, though, is the difficulty throughout Rob-B-Hood, a work that tries to please so many audiences while eventually alienating many. Despite some wonderful Jackie moments. The end fight with various musical instruments and the stunt where he jumps down the air conditioning units stuck to the side of a block of flats . It proves to be a movie where the need to be ‘cute’ is more important than the desire to entertain. When it kicks into gear there is much to enjoy and a typically inventive Hong Kong vibe about the whole film. Unfortunately the production is sometimes that unpleasant spectacle of seeing one of the true masters of physical cinema compromised by pandering too much to their family market.

Apple just scooped up Cherry, the first movie from the Russo Brothers since Avengers: Endgame. And the Russo’s first non-superhero movie in a long, long time. The project reunites them with Tom Holland, who plays a war vet with PTSD who becomes a bank robber. It’s based on the novel by Nico Walker, which is in part based on Walker’s true story (he’s a US Army veteran currently serving time in prison for bank robbery).

[Image: Cherry-Movie.jpg]

According to Deadline, the Apple deal for Cherry was in the “high $40 millions.” It’s yet another big get for Apple, who also swooped in to buy Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon. Other big Apple deals include the Tom Hanks movie Greyhound, the Will Smith movie Emancipation, and Sofia Coppola’s On The Rocks.

Cherry marks the return of the Russo Brothers. And it has them moving beyond the world of Marvel for a grittier drama. Based on the novel by Nico Walker. Cherry finds Tom Holland playing “Walker, a young Cleveland man who. After being spurned by the love of his life, joins the army before she returns to tell him she has made a mistake and they belong together. He becomes an Army medic in Iraq and sees violence and carnage no one should. Returning with a raging case of undiagnosed PTSD, he is prescribed the opiate Oxycontin. Soon, he and his young wife move from pills to heroin, and he turns to robbing banks to pay their debts and feed their habit.” Ciara Bravo co-stars as the wife of Holland’s character.

Quote:The film is already finished, and there’s hope that it’ll be an awards season contender. Which means we could see it very soon. Per Deadline, “The plan is to qualify with the Academy. And premiere the film in early 2021 on Apple TV+”.  Jessica Goldberg and Angela Russo-Otstot penned the script. With the rest of the cast consisting of Kelli BurglundJack ReynorForrest GoodluckJeff WahlbergMichael GandolfiniKyle Harvey, and Thomas Lennon. His name is curiously absent from the Deadline story. But Bill Skarsgård is supposedly in the movie, too. Skarsgård recently played Holland’s father in The Devil All the Time.

I’m very curious to see how this all turns out. I’m just going to come right out. And say that I don’t think the Russo Brothers’ Marvel movies are particularly well-directed. That’s not to say they’re bad – I’m just saying the least interesting thing about those movies is how they’re directed. So I’m interested in seeing how the Russos fair now outside the Marvel bubble. To be clear, this isn’t the first non-Marvel movie they’ve directed – they also helmed Welcome to Collinwood and You, Me and Dupree.

Monster Pictures has released a new teaser trailer for Occupation: Rainfall, the sequel to 2018's Occupation.

[Image: Sound-Of-Metal-Trailer.jpg]

We have a new trailer for Occupation: Rainfall. This serves as a sequel to 2018's Occupation and is said to be one of Australia's biggest ever sci-fi movies ever made. The teaser has made its way online ahead of the movie's world premiere screenings at Monster Fest 2020, which is taking place on October 30 in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. But before that happens, we've been offer a looking at what is coming down the pipeline. And it looks like a massive, wild spectacle.

The trailer opens with a shot of a city on fire. With some voiceover letting us know how dire the situation on Earth has become. We then get a tease of an uneasy alliance formed between humans and a member of the invading alien race that has put the world in such peril. It is very much just a teaser, with lots of impressive shots consisting of gigantic space stations, aerial combat, explosions, flying beasts and just about everything one could hope to see in a gigantic sci-fi flick.

Luke Sparke is returning to the director's chair for the sequel. The cast includes Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians), Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Daniel Gillies (Vampire Diaries), Dan Ewing (Love and Monsters), Dena Kaplan (Dance Academy), Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Attack of the Clones), Mark Coles Smith (Last Cab To Darwin), Jet Tranter (Thor: Ragnarok), Lawrence Makoare (The Lord Of The Rings), David Roberts (The Matrix: Reloaded), Vince Colosimo (Chopper), Zac Garred (General Hospital) and Trystan Go (The Family Law). Sparke had this to say in a statement.

Quote:"It's so rewarding after 2 years of work to finally show this teaser trailer for the Occupation sequel. We're aiming for Australia's own action franchise here, equal parts sci/fi and adventure. I don't think some of what we are doing has ever been attempted in an Australian film before. And I can't wait for the lucky viewers attending the World Premiere screenings at Monster Fest to experience it all first before the full release!"

Occupation: Rainfall picks up after the events of the first movie. We are now two years into the intergalactic invasion of Earth. Survivors in Sydney, Australia are fighting back in a desperate battle, with casualties piling up by the day. But the resistance and their unexpected allies uncover a plot that could see the war come to a certain end. With the Alien invaders hell-bent on making Earth their new home, the race is on to save mankind.

Aside from a stacked ensemble, the movie also features effects by the same Australian teams and artists that were a part of Thor: Ragnarok, I am Mother and Spider-Man: Homecoming. The sequel is produced by mother and daughter duo Carly and Carmel Imrie and co-executive producer, Todd Williams. Monster Pictures is distributing throughout Australia and New Zealand. Film Mode Entertainment will be handling distribution in other markets. So Occupation: Rainfall does not yet have a release date set. Be sure to check out the trailer for yourself from the Monster Fest YouTube channel.

The long-awaited sequel recently started production in North Carolina and has already been hit with a setback.

[Image: Scream-5-Release-Date.jpg]

The Scream 5 production will continue, despite three crew members testing positive for COVID-19. Work on the highly anticipated sequel brings back franchise stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox. Hollywood studios are currently looking for the safest ways to get back to work during the ongoing public health crisis, but there are always going to be some kind of setback. Matt Reeves' The Batman had to halt production back in March. And then again in September when star Robert Pattinson tested positive. However, things seem to be back on track now.

As for Scream 5, the positive tests were revealed yesterday, though filming was also completed yesterday. The production team will take the weekend off, before getting back to work on Monday. As for how they will be able to get back to work, it appears that the three crew members were not in the "main pod," which includes the actors, directors, assistant directors, and director of photography. It isn't clear which pod that the unnamed crew members were a part of.

Quote:Until a vaccine is widely available, production stalls are likely to keep occurring across the industry. Much like professional sports, the entertainment industry is going with the "bubble" way of life, along with separate pods of people who all work on the set. There is supposed to be little to none interaction between separate pods while on the set, though it's unclear how that is being managed with so much going on behind-the-scenes. Whatever the case may be, it seems that the Scream 5 production has a good plan in play.

The three Scream 5 crew members will be quarantined for two weeks. And will continue to be tested before coming back to the set. Contact tracing measures have also been implemented to ensure that the production is able to run as smooth as possible to meet the January 14th, 2022 release date. As long as the main pod doesn't come down with any cases, the movie should be able to finish on time to allow the post-production enough time to edit and add in visual effects. But, it's hard to predict what will happen in the coming days, weeks, and months, though a vaccine could arrive by this winter, according to Dr. Fauci.

Scream 5 was first officially announced earlier this year. It will be the first movie in the franchise without Wes Craven's involvement, as he passed away in 2015. The sequel is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett with Kevin Williamson serving as an executive producer. Production was expected to start back in May. But the public health crisis put a stop to that, which brings us to late September. Work will stop for the weekend, but the show will go on early Monday morning. Deadline was one of the first outlets to report on the Scream 5 crew members testing positive for coronavirus.

Actress Keira Knightley played Sabé in the first of George Lucas' prequels, The Phantom Menace, which hit theaters in 1999, but she seems to have blocked all of that out.

[Image: Keira-Knightley.jpg]

Keira Knightly had no idea who she played in the Star Wars franchise. The actress played the part of Sabé in 1999's The Phantom Menace when she was 12 years-old. The character is a very important handmaiden and body double for Natalie Portman's Queen Padmé Amidala. In the movie, she is duty-bound to protect Queen Padmé Amidala, the elected ruler of the people of Naboo, against any threat, which found her having to impersonate Padmé to keep her safe from the Trade Federation. Knightly only played the character once.

Quote:In a new interview, Keira Knightley was asked about her time with Star Wars. "Your character survived, whereas Padmé did not," an interviewer said to Knightley, who replied, "Wait a minute. Who did I play? Was I not Padmé?" After being informed that Natalie Portman played Padmé and that she played Sabé, Knightley said, "Do you know, I saw the film once. I think I was 12 when I did it and it came out and I saw it the year after. And I've never seen it again. So, I played Sabé and she didn't die? Okay!" She added, "I hope she lived a long and happy life somewhere on a planet far, far away. I'm sure she did."

Keira Knightly was only 14-year old when The Phantom Menace opened in theaters, so one can imagine why she wouldn't remember a whole lot 21 years later, especially after taking on as many roles as she has since then. After clearing up the confusion, Knightly was then asked if there were ever any talks of her returning to reprise her role as Sabé. "Reprising the character I can't even remember the name of? No, there hasn't," she said, laughing. Sabé does have a larger role in the Star Wars universe, it just didn't end up on the big screen.

Back in March of this year, Keira Knightly was asked what it was like working on The Phantom Menace. "I mean, I was 12. I literally don't remember". Knightley said. "I remember the headdress being so heavy, it gave me a headache. I really remember the headache from one of the headdresses." She went on and had this to say about staying awake on set.

Quote:"And I remember being in the background for such a long time that I'd actually fallen asleep. I was just sitting in a chair, and I was in the background, but I couldn't keep my eyes open. I really remember that. But apart from that, I don't remember anything else about it."

It appears that Keira Knightly's experience in the Star Wars universe wasn't very exciting. It's also something that she doesn't seem to have a really good memory about either. But, she was pretty young when The Phantom Menace was being made, and a lot has happened since then. Knightly's career flourished and a whole new trilogy of Star Wars movies has already come and gone, along with some spin-offs and a TV series. The interview with Keira Knightly was originally conducted by ComingSoon.

It has been heavily rumored that Henry Cavill will be returning to the DC Universe as the Man of Steel.

[Image: Superman-Movies-Henry-Cavill.jpg]

Henry Cavill quickly changed the subject when asked about a new Superman contract with Warner Bros. The actor is out promoting Netflix's Enola Holmes, which he stars in alongside Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown. There have been a lot of rumors swirling lately about Cavill returning to the DC Universe as the Man of Steel. But that isn't exactly something new. However, Cavill's answer to a recent question in regard to the situation seems a bit peculiar.

After years of saying he would like to return for a possible Man of Steel 2. It has been heavily rumored that Henry Cavill has signed a new deal with Warner Bros. to bring his version of Superman back for three projects. It has yet to be officially confirmed, but Cavill was asked about it in a new interview. "Well, I think it's important that this should be about Enola Holmes," Cavill said when asked about the subject. However, his answer comes after he went on at great length about building a gaming PC. Painting Warhammer figures while on lockdown, and the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Cavill was then asked if his response actually meant, "no comment". But the actor grinned and replied, "I said what I said."

After being so open about a variety of other subjects. It seems strange that Henry Cavill would not comment on a possible new deal with Warner Bros. With that being said, he is out there to currently promote Netflix's Enola Holmes, which has been getting rave reviews from viewers. Cavill recently announced that he will not be going back to shoot additional footage with Zack Snyder for Justice League, despite earlier reporting stating that he was.

Quote:He says, "They are doing their own thing out there, putting the movie together from the footage they shot". When asked if he has spoken to Snyder about coming back. Cavil says, "I've not been in comms with them about it."

Henry Cavill has spoken at great length in the past about where he would like to see his version of Superman go in the future. He said, "Where we left off with Man of Steel. In particular, was the guy who had found his place, or was trying to find his place but had sort of found it by the end..." Cavill went on and noted, "Him exploring the positivity of who he is... That character who becomes an icon of hope and enjoying that experience rather than necessarily being made uncomfortable by it."

For now, it seems that there are no plans for Henry Cavil to get involved with the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Though stranger things have happened. Nobody ever though that Warner Bros. would come back to Snyder and give him another $70 million to complete his original version of the movie either. As for a possible return to the DC Universe. Cavil is keeping his lips sealed for now. You can read the rest of the interview with Cavil over at GQ U.K.

The Lost World star Julianne Moore is open to returning as Sarah Harding for Jurassic World 3.

[Image: Julianne-Moore-Not-Returning.jpg]

At least one character from the history of the franchise is not returning for Jurassic World 3. Or, at the very least, she hasn't been asked yet. This, according to Julianne Moore, who recently revealed that she has not been contacted to reprise her role as Sarah Harding in the upcoming sequel.

Julianne Moore is currently promoting her new movie The Glorias. During a recent interview, she was asked about the possibility of returning in Jurassic World: Dominion as her character from the first sequel, 1997's The Lost World. As Moore tells it, she hasn't been approached but is happily willing to dance with dinosaurs once again, provided the opportunity. Here's what she had to say about it.

Quote:"Yeah, NEP3xGASAU1gTQ||Sarah Harding}. Maybe she's not done yet. I don't know. But no one has approached me. That's ok! But if they did? Yeah, sure! Of course, of course!"

Sarah Harding was introduced in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the direct sequel to 1993's Jurassic Park. Steven Spielberg directed the follow-up, which introduces Isla Sorna, aka Site B. This is another island that John Hammond and InGen used to raise the dinosaurs before bringing them to Isla Nublar. Harding was sent to Site B to document the creatures as part of a mission that goes terribly wrong. Harding was also the girlfriend of Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm. We haven't seen Sarah Harding in the years since.

As for Jurassic World 3, it has already been confirmed that the original trio of Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) and Ian Malcolm will be returning in a significant capacity. Chris Pratt, who will be returning once again as Owen Grady, previously likened the movie to Avengers: Endgame, saying that "everyone" is in it. So we can expect to see other familiar faces beyond Alan, Ellie and Ian. There is reason to believe that Joseph Mazzello may reprise his role as Tim, for example. With that, it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to have Julianne Moore return.

Quote:That said, if she hasn't been contacted yet, it seems unlikely that Sarah Harding will be returning in the movie. But there could be more opportunities down the road. Not only did the animated Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous recently launch on Netflix, but producer Frank Marshall revealed earlier this year that the franchise isn't ending. Rather, the upcoming sequel will be the "start of a new era."

Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first Jurassic World, is returning to helm the sequel. He wrote the screenplay with Emily Carmichael. Filming has been underway for the past several weeks following the shutdown earlier this year. Plot details are being kept closely guarded but it will involve dinosaurs being out in the real world, given what happened at the end of 2018's Fallen Kingdom. We got a brief glimpse of how chaotic that can be in the live-action short Battle at Big Rock. Jurassic World: Dominion is currently set to hit theaters on June 11, 2021. This news comes to us via Collider.
