Another Will Smith movie is scrapped

Netflix is ​​quietly stopping its plans for a sequel to "Bright". However, it does not seem to be due to the Oscars scandal.


In recent weeks, Will Smith has seen several of his film projects paused or canceled, due to the slap in the face he handed out at the Oscars. And here comes another setback for the actor: the planned "Bright 2" will not happen.
 
David Ayers' "Bright" was the Netflix movie from 2017 that mixed cop action with a fantasy world inhabited by orcs. The streaming service announced its plans for a continuation already four years ago. Two years ago, they gave the directing job to Louis Leterrier.
 
Now, however, they have come up with other ideas. Bloomberg journalist Lucas Shaw wrote on Twitter that "Netflix has abandoned its plans for a sequel" but also adds that "it is unrelated to the event".
 
In other words, Netflix may have quietly scrapped "Bright 2" even before the Oscars, as far as we know. No major loss for Netflix viewers, I'm sure.
 
For Smith, on the other hand, it is another job less. In recent weeks, both "Bad Boys 4" and the Netflix thriller "Fast and Loose" have ended up in the firing line. Whether the actor's career after The Slap can recover remains to be seen.

“365 days: that day”: the sequel to the film that was all the rage in 2020 arrives

This second part will premiere on Netflix. S*x abounds again in this continuation of the relationship between Laura and Massimo. The original film was accused of promoting r*pe culture

The film 365 days premiered on Netflix in 2020 and returned shocking numbers. It entered the daily Top 10 in more than 90 countries and was ranked on Google as the fourth most searched movie in the world for the year.

With these numbers it was almost impossible for there not to be a second part and this is how 365 days now arrives: that day. Laura (Anna-Maria Sieklucka) and Massimo (Michele Morrone) were the protagonists of this film in which s*

 

x scenes abounded in the middle of a gangster fight. In the sequel we will see this couple again, but the relationship between the two will not be rosy.

Jealousy and betrayal will be integrated into this bond, and to this will be added the complexity that Massimo faces with his family. The appearance of Nacho (Simone Susinna), a mysterious man, in Laura's life, will generate a new conflict.

Blanka Lipinska, author of the novels on which both films are based, told Variety about this new story and the role that Laura will play: “This is, without a doubt, a story about a woman. About how we can be naive, blind; about how much we love; about how we learn from our mistakes and have the opportunity to correct them.”

365 days: that day is directed by Barbara Białowąs and Tomasz Mandes, while the script was left to Mojca Tirs, Blanka Lipińska and Mandes. Also returning to the story are Olga (Magdalena Lamparska), Laura's best friend and her most faithful confidante, and Domenico (Otar Saralidze), Massimo's lieutenant.

In Sieklucka's words, 365 Days: That Day "offers a new look at the character of Laura, who has matured" and "goes much deeper to tell us more about the relationship between the lovers." In the sequel, she added, "she is stronger." Perhaps this comment derives from the memory of the reactions to the first film, accused of contributing to rape culture due to its scenes of sexual violence. Although Netflix was asked to remove it from its catalog, the platform left it arguing that it was not an exclusive production but an acquired fiction and that it has a warning about the content at the beginning.

But it seems that this sequel will not be the only one. In the words of its author, we could have more chapters on the future of Laura and Massimo. “I created a story that is now known all over the world. I am proud of the actors for their dedication to the project and proud of the team that worked so hard on the film. One thing I can promise you is that it's not over yet!” she announced.

"Beverly Hills Cop 4" is moving forward with a new director

Time for another action comedy with Eddie Murphy in the role of Axel Foley. Now the director is in place.
At a time when many old movie icons are returning to the roles that made them famous, Eddie Murphy is also getting ready to play the constable from California again. Team arm in LA. Yes, you know - the cop in Hollywood.
 
Deadline writes that "Beverly Hills Cop 4" has found its director in Mark Molloy, so far best known from the world of commercials. This will be his first feature film. Molloy thus replaces "Bad Boys For Life" duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who are probably too busy with their superhero movie "Batgirl" for HBO Max.
 
When the film can be recorded is not known, however, we know that it goes directly to Netflix.
 
The first time Eddie Murphy played the cocky cop Axel Foley was in "The Cop from Hollywood" from 1984 - the most lucrative film of the year. A sequel came out in 1987, and the third and most recent film was released in 1994.
 
Eddie Murphy is now 61 years old, as you probably wonder, and apparently not yet "too old for this shit".
 
And now: one of the best movie themes of the 80's!

Trailer: Colin Firth in World War II drama "Operation Mincemeat"

Director John Madden's new film tells the true story of two British intelligence officers, who together planned and carried out a daring operation.
The year is 1943 and the Allies are planning, in an attempt to stop Hitler's grip on Europe, an invasion of the island of Sicily. To help the operation succeed, two British intelligence officers draw up a plan, using a daring and somewhat odd strategy. The hope is that one will be able to mislead the German military, by providing a dead body with false documents.
 
The operation went by the name "Operation Mincemeat", and now it has been translated for the big screen, in a drama of the same title. The real story is told by John Madden, who has previously been behind films such as "Hotel Marigold", "Proof" and "Shakespeare in Love".
 
At the top of the cast is Colin Firth, in the role of Ewen Montagu, one of the leading men behind the plan. As his collaborator Charles Cholmondeley, we see Matthew Macfadyen, known from one of the lead roles in "Pride and Prejudice", and in recent years from the acclaimed series "Succession".
 
Now they have released a trailer for the war drama, which gives a first look at what seems to be a partly serious, but perhaps most of all entertaining depiction of the event.

X: Impressive horror with Xtra everything

We are hardly spoiled with good horror, especially those who are not remakes or sequels. Ti West delivers a hard-boiled slasher that manages to combine blood and sex with thought-provoking, human themes.

"X" is like a really good wine. When you first taste it, it is good and slips easily down your throat. But it is when you are hungry and the fantastic aftertaste comes that you really enjoy. Because even if "X" on the surface is a 1970s-inspired slasher (which also takes place in the mentioned decade) about some crazy lantis who terrorize a porn film production, it has more layers than you can count. When the subtitles roll and you really start to digest the film, you realize that it actually has something to say.
 
One can only applaud the director / screenwriter / producer Ti West, who has previously given us low-budget gems like "The House of the Devil", "The Innkeepers" and "The Sacrament". Clearly a fan of the genre as he previously manages to combine effective retro horror with black humor and human themes. But that, as here, succeeding in including old age, sexuality, prejudice and identity-seeking in a horror film that on paper sounds like a B-film is very impressive.

 It is a film that builds up slowly and subtly but becomes all the more frightening once things start to happen. There are more nasty situations - and a lot of blood - rather than cheap jump-to-effects. We also care about the characters who, despite their flaws and shortcomings, are unusually sympathetic and human to this type of film.
 
Much is due to West's script, which refuses the kind of hip, politically correct dialogue we often hear in modern slasher films. This is not least noticeable in an almost brilliant scene where our main characters discuss their roles in the porn film they record but also in society. How their morals - and in some cases double standards - are reflected in their view of s@x.
 
Someone who impresses all the more is the main character Mia Goth ("Suspiria", "Emma"), superb in a cool double role. Not only is her ambitious porn actress Maxine Minx an unusual heroine who does drugs, fucks and aims hard at the stars. British Goth has also adopted a credible American Southern dialect for the role. But she also plays the older, creepy lady Pearl, where in addition to fantastic makeup, she also gets an older woman's movements and behavior so that it is almost impossible to see that the wrinkled, thin-haired and slender Pearl is actually played by a 28-year-old. It is almost more impressive than Tilda Swinton's contribution as an older man in "Suspiria" (in which Goth also starred).

 
Goth is also backed by a flawless ensemble. It's extra fun to see "Pitch Perfect" star Brittany Snow steal every scene she's in as a promiscuous porn star with a twinkle in her eye. Martin Henderson ("The Ring") does a wonderful Matthew McConaughey imitation better than McConuaghey could have done himself. And between this one, "Scream" and "Studio 666", Jenna Ortega proves that we have a new horror movie star to count on.
 
"X" with its rural and 1970s environment is similar to many classic horror films - but at the same time manages to have something to say between the once-motivated sex scenes and all the happy splatter violence. It's a smart, fun, bloody and nicely packaged gift for fans of the genre who usually have to go through tired remakes and sequels. West and Goth have already filmed a prequel, "Pearl", and expectations are high!
