Hot off of musical heist caper Baby Driver, Ansel Elgort has already lined up his next project. The actor and EDM artist will be starring as a young mid-twenties John F. Kennedy, yes, that John F. Kennedy, in a movie about the former president’s bravery in the South Pacific during World War II.
Daniel Day-Lewis is primarily known for his method acting: it can take him years to fully prepare for a role, and he’s the kind of actor who really likes to immerse himself in the material. Remember when he had the Lincoln cast and crew and Steven Spielberg calling him Mr. President? Up until now, he’s never gone so method that he can’t get back out again, but if the rumors are true, his latest role might have inspired a career change.
The end of one month means the start of another, which also means that new things are coming to a streaming platform near you. Netflix’s July instant releases are stacked, and include a few classic cartoon dinosaur movies, the premieres of a new Netflix original shows, and one Star Wars Story.
Remember that book you loved as a child, that featured simple black and white illustrations of a Spanish bull who’d rather smell flowers and sit under his favorite cork tree than get riled and fight a bunch of dudes with pointy sticks in an arena? Well, it’s a movie now, and none other than John Cena is voicing the titular Ferdinand, whose chance encounter with the back end of a bee sends him packed into a truck and hauled off to the bullfights. There’s just one wrinkle: he won’t fight.
One of the most charming aspects of Captain America: Civil War was the relationship between Tony Stark and Peter Parker, the Avengers’ youngest, spunkiest recruit. It”ll be fun to see their friendship blossom in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and a new featurette delves a little deeper into their hilarious mentor-mentee dynamic.
Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen or heard before. Not only does it have a stellar soundtrack, the movie itself was built around its own music. Car doors slamming, keys turning, guns firing all had to be precisely timed to fit with whatever song would be playing over the action once the film was all cut together, and a new featurette explains just how complicated that was to do.
Justice League is set to be Warner Bros. biggest superhero team-up film yet, with metahumans we’ve met and a few we haven’t coming together to fight against injustice. Even those who aren’t traditionally members of the team are in for this fight, including a few of Wonder Woman’s Themysciran compatriots.
Disney Animation and Pixar are heading into a bright new era of culturally influenced moviemaking, ushered in by Frozen’s Nordic-inspired production design and continued through Big Hero 6 and last year’s fantastic Polynesian fairy tale Moana. For their next trick, Pixar is traveling to the Land of the Dead for Coco, a Mexican-inspired adventure about a boy who finds the soul of a long-dead musician in the underworld. It also seems like Coco is taking a cue from Moana, because all of the cast for Coco is Latino.
The owner of the largest privately-owned Star Wars memorabilia collection in the world, known as Rancho Obi-Wan, has announced today that it has been systematically robbed over a period of many months from 2015 to 2016. Steve Sansweet, who offers tours of the ranch and its many pieces of Star Wars history, says that not only do the items taken make up about $200,000, it appears to be an inside job.
The nunsploitation film seems to be making an odd comeback recently — with even Paul Verhoeven catching the fever and announcing his lesbian nun movie Blessed Virgin — and nothing looks more promising than a ton of comedy greats banding together to make a raunchy, hysterical version of Bocaccio’s The Decameron, replete with clergy members throwing around f-bombs and nuns throwing around turnips.
