FALSE FLAG

A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

Predictive Programming is the concept whereby conspirators plan a false flag operation, they hide references to it in the popular media before the atrocity takes place; when the event occurs, the public has softened up, and therefore passively accepts it rather than offering resistance or opposition.

SHE-HULK (2022)
[DISNEY+]


 

She-Hulk is an upcoming American television series created by Jessica Gao for the streaming service Disney+, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is intended to be part of the television series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) produced by Marvel Studios, sharing continuity with the films of the franchise. Gao serves as head writer with Kat Coiro leading the directing team.

Tatiana Maslany stars as Jennifer Walters / She-Hulk. Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Ginger Gonzaga, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Jameela Jamil also star. The series was announced in August 2019, with Gao hired in November. Coiro joined to direct multiple episodes in September 2020, and Maslany was cast. By December, Roth and Ruffalo had joined the cast and Anu Valia was also set to direct. Filming began in mid-April 2021 in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Georgia, and was expected to last until that August.

She-Hulk is scheduled to be released in 2022, and will consist of ten episodes. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.

Development

In August 2019, Marvel Studios announced at the D23 conference that a series based on She-Hulk was being developed for the streaming service Disney+, to be set in their shared universe the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). That November, Jessica Gao was hired to serve as the head writer.

The series will consist of ten 30-minute episodes, equaling approximately six hours of content. In February 2021, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige stated that some of their series, including She-Hulk and Moon Knight, were being developed with the potential to have future seasons made, in contrast to series like WandaVision (2021) which were developed as limited events that lead into feature films instead. Brad Winderbaum also serves as an executive producer.

Future

In November 2019, Feige stated that after introducing She-Hulk in the series, the character will cross over to the MCU films.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Black Panther. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to Black Panther (2018) and the 30th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Ideas for a sequel began after the release of Black Panther in February 2018. Coogler negotiated to return as director in the following months, and Marvel Studios officially confirmed the sequel’s development in mid-2019. Plans for the film changed in August 2020 when Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman died from colon cancer, with Marvel choosing not to recast his role of T’Challa.

RYAN COOGLER
(Director, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever)


 

Ryan Kyle Coogler (born May 23, 1986) is an American film director, producer, and screenwriter. His first feature film, Fruitvale Station (2013), won the top audience and grand jury awards in the U.S. dramatic competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. He has since co-written and directed the seventh film in the Rocky series, Creed (2015), and the Marvel film Black Panther (2018), the latter of which broke numerous box office records and became the highest-grossing film of all time by an African American director.

Coogler’s films have received significant critical acclaim and commercial success. In 2013, he was included on Time‘s list of the 30 people under 30 who are changing the world. His work has been hailed by critics for centering on often overlooked cultures and characters—most notably African Americans.

He frequently collaborates with actor Michael B. Jordan, who appeared in his first three feature films, as well as composer Ludwig Göransson, who has scored four of his films.

In 2018, Coogler was named the runner-up of Time’s Person of the Year and he was included in the annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

In 2021, Coogler, Zinzi Coogler, and Sev Ohanian founded multimedia company Proximity Media to create event-driven content across various platforms.

Black Panther

In January 2016, Coogler signed on to co-write and direct the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Black Panther, making him the youngest Marvel Studios filmmaker. The film, starring Chadwick Boseman as the titular character, began production in January 2017, and was released in 2018. Michael B. Jordan appeared as main antagonist Erik Killmonger, having thus starred in all of Coogler’s feature films.

Upon release, the film was an overwhelming commercial success, grossing the fifth largest opening weekend box-office results of all-time, as well as the second highest four-day gross in history. It eventually became the highest-grossing film in history directed by an African American. After the release of A Wrinkle in Time in March 2018, it was the first time the top two films at the box office were directed by an African American filmmaker— Coogler for Black Panther and Ava DuVernay for A Wrinkle in Time.

The film was also a critical success. Rotten Tomatoes’ critical consensus reads, “Black Panther elevates superhero cinema to thrilling new heights while telling one of the MCU’s most absorbing stories—and introducing some of its most fully realized characters.” Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called Black Panther “a jolt of a movie” and said “in its emphasis on black imagination, creation and liberation, the movie becomes an emblem of a past that was denied and a future that feels very present. And in doing so opens up its world, and yours, beautifully.” Brian Truitt of USA Today awarded the film four out of four stars and called it Marvel Studios’ best origin film since Guardians of the Galaxy. The film was also noted for its representation of black people and subject matter related to Afrofuturism.

Kevin Feige confirmed in April 2018 that Marvel Studios plans to create a sequel to Black Panther once Coogler returns to direct it. In October 2018, Coogler had completed a deal to write and direct a sequel to Black Panther, which is titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

In February 2021, Coogler’s production company Proximity Media signed an exclusive five year deal with Disney to produce content for them, which includes a Disney+ television series based in Black Panther’s home country of Wakanda.

Development began in 2016. It is the first Bond film distributed by Universal Pictures, which acquired the international distribution rights following the expiration of Sony Pictures’ contract after the release of Spectre in 2015. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer subsidiary United Artists Releasing holds the rights for North America, as well as worldwide digital and television rights; Universal also holds the worldwide rights for physical home media. Danny Boyle was originally attached to direct and co-write the screenplay with John Hodge.

007: No Time to Die (2021) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

A young Madeleine Swann witnesses the murder of her mother by Lyutsifer Safin in a failed attempt to murder her father Mr. White. Safin is shot by Madeleine as he searches for her, but survives. Madeleine flees onto a nearby frozen lake and falls through the ice, but Safin rescues her.

After the capture of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Madeleine is in Matera with James Bond. Spectre assassins ambush Bond when he visits Vesper Lynd’s tomb. Though Bond and Madeleine overcome the assassins, Bond believes that Madeleine has betrayed him despite her pleas and leaves her.

Five years later, MI6 scientist Valdo Obruchev is kidnapped from an MI6 laboratory. Approved by M, Obruchev has developed “Project Heracles”, a bioweapon containing nanobots that infect like a virus upon touch and are coded to an individual’s specific DNA, rendering it lethal to the target but harmless to others. Bond has retired to Jamaica, where he is contacted by CIA agent Felix Leiter with his colleague Logan Ash. Leiter asks for help in tracking down Obruchev but Bond declines. The same evening, Bond encounters an MI6 agent named Nomi who has succeeded him as the new 007. Being informed by Nomi about “Project Heracles”, Bond subsequently agrees to help Leiter.

Bond goes to Cuba and meets a CIA agent named Paloma who is allied with Leiter. Bond and Paloma infiltrate a Spectre meeting for Blofeld’s birthday to retrieve Obruchev. Blofeld, who is using a disembodied “bionic eye” to lead the meeting while still being imprisoned in MI6, orders his members to kill Bond with the nanobots. Instead, the nanobots kill all of the Spectre members, as Obruchev had reprogrammed them to do so on Safin’s orders. Bond captures Obruchev before meeting Leiter and Ash. However Ash is revealed to be a double agent working for Safin as he kills Leiter and escapes with Obruchev.

Moneypenny and Q arrange a meeting between Bond and Blofeld in prison to try to locate Obruchev. However Safin visits and coerces Madeleine to infect herself with nanobots to kill Blofeld, as she has been in contact with him since his imprisonment. When Bond encounters Madeleine at Blofeld’s prison cell, he touches her and unknowingly infects himself before she leaves. During the interrogation, Blofeld confesses to Bond that he staged the ambush at Vesper’s tomb to appear as if Madeline had betrayed him. Bond reacts by attacking Blofeld, unintentionally causing the nanobots to infect and kill him.

Bond tracks Madeleine down to her childhood home in Norway. There he learns that Madeleine has a five-year-old daughter named Mathilde, whom she claims is not his. Madeleine confesses to Bond that Safin’s parents were murdered by Madeleine’s father on Blofeld’s orders when Safin was a boy, prompting him to seek revenge on Blofeld and Spectre. Despite having succeeded in killing Blofeld and destroying Spectre, Safin continues his rampage as he, Ash, and their men are on their way to capture Bond, Madeleine and Mathilde. Though Bond manages to kill Ash and several of Safin’s men, Safin successfully captures Madeleine and Mathilde.

Q, Bond, and Nomi locate Safin in a Second World War base on an island between Japan and Russia. They infiltrate Safin’s headquarters and learn that Safin has converted the base into a nanobot factory, where he has Obruchev create millions of nanobots so that he can unleash them globally to kill millions of people and establish a new world order for himself. Bond kills many of Safin’s men while Nomi kills Obruchev by pushing him into a vat of nanobots. After rescuing Madeleine and Mathilde, Bond has them escape with Nomi from the island while he stays behind to open the island’s silo doors, which would enable a missile strike from the HMS Dragon to destroy the nanobots.

Bond kills Safin’s remaining men before confronting Safin himself; they fight and Safin shoots Bond before infecting him with nanobots programmed to kill Madeleine and Mathilde. Despite his injuries, Bond kills Safin and opens the silos. Speaking by radio with Madeleine, Bond tells her he loves her and encourages her to move on without him, and she confirms that Mathilde is his daughter as Bond bids her farewell. Bond accepts his fate as the missiles hit the island, destroying the nanobot factory and killing him.

At MI6, M, Moneypenny, Q, Tanner and Nomi drink in Bond’s honour. The film ends with Madeleine taking Mathilde to Matera as she starts telling her about Bond.

What If…? (2021) – Season 1 First Look

1X01 – WHAT IF… CAPTAIN CARTER WERE THE FIRST AVENGER?


 

What If… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” is the first episode of the first season of the American animated television series What If…?, based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. It explores what would happen if the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) occurred differently, with Peggy Carter taking the Super Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers and becoming the superhero “Captain Carter”. The episode was written by head writer A.C. Bradley and directed by Bryan Andrews.

Jeffrey Wright narrates the series as the Watcher, with this episode also starring the voices of Hayley Atwell (Carter), Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones, Bradley Whitford, Ross Marquand, and Darrell Hammond. The series began development by September 2018, with Andrews and Bradley joining soon after, and many actors expected to reprise their roles from the MCU films. The episode shows Carter dealing with sexism while becoming a superhero. Animation was provided by Blue Spirit, with Stephan Franck serving as head of animation; they took inspiration from 1940s serial films and old war films.

“What If… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” was released on Disney+ on August 11, 2021. Critics praised Atwell’s performance and the action sequences, but were mixed on other returning film actors’ performances, elements of the animation style, and whether the story was a good introduction to the series or too similar to The First Avenger.

PLOT SUMMARY

During World War II, Steve Rogers is chosen to become the world’s first super-soldier by receiving the Super Soldier Serum developed by Dr. Abraham Erskine. When Erskine asks if Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) Agent Peggy Carter wants to watch the procedure from a safe distance, she chooses to stay in the room.

As inventor Howard Stark prepares to put Rogers through the procedure, Heinz Kruger—a spy from the Nazis’ science division Hydra—attacks the lab and attempts to steal the serum. He kills SSR leader Chester Phillips and shoots Rogers before Carter kills Kruger. With limited time to complete the procedure, Carter volunteers to take the serum. She is successfully enhanced, but new SSR leader John Flynn refuses to allow her to join the war because she is a woman.

In Norway, Hydra’s leader Johann Schmidt / Red Skull obtains the Tesseract, a powerful artifact that can manipulate space, which he plans to win the war with. Flynn refuses to send anyone to stop Schmidt, but Stark secretly gives Carter a costume and a shield made of vibranium, which she uses to attack a Hydra convoy and successfully retrieve both the Tesseract and Hydra scientist Arnim Zola. After this success, Flynn promotes Carter to a combat role and she becomes “Captain Carter”.

Carter and Rogers rescue Rogers’ friend Bucky Barnes when he is captured by Hydra forces, with Rogers piloting a weaponized and armored “Hydra Stomper” suit that Stark built with the Tesseract. Carter and Rogers go on to fight in numerous battles with Barnes and the Howling Commandos until Rogers goes missing, presumed dead, during an attack on a Hydra train.

Carter and her allies infiltrate Schmidt’s castle after she obtains its location from Zola, and find Rogers alive. Schmidt uses the Tesseract to open a portal and summon an interdimensional creature, which quickly kills him. Carter and Rogers battle the creature until the Hydra Stomper runs out of power. As Stark closes the portal, Carter sacrifices herself by entering it while pushing the creature back into it.

Almost 70 years later, the Tesseract opens another portal which Carter emerges from, meeting Nick Fury and Clint Barton.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) [HBO MAX] – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE (2021)
[HBO MAX]


 

Zack Snyder’s Justice League, often referred to as the “Snyder Cut“, is the 2021 director’s cut of the 2017 American superhero film Justice League. It presents Justice League—the fifth film of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and the sequel to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)—as director Zack Snyder intended it before he left the production. Like the theatrical release, Zack Snyder’s Justice League follows DC Comics’ Justice League—Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and the Flash (Ezra Miller)—as they attempt to save the world from the catastrophic threat of Darkseid (Ray Porter), Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), and their army of Parademons.

Justice League, released by Warner Bros. Pictures in 2017, suffered a difficult production. Its script underwent major changes before and during production between 2016 and 2017. In May 2017, Snyder stepped down during post-production following the death of his daughter, and Joss Whedon was hired to finish the film, completing it as an uncredited director. Whedon oversaw reshoots and other changes that incorporated a brighter tone and more humor, and reduced the runtime significantly in accordance with a mandate from Warner Bros. The theatrical version of Justice League received mixed reviews and was a box office disappointment, leading Warner Bros. to re-evaluate the DCEU’s future, and to focus on developing films around individual characters with less regard for a shared narrative.

Many fans expressed interest in an alternate cut more faithful to Snyder’s vision, which they and members of the cast and crew nicknamed the “Snyder Cut”. Industry insiders considered the release unlikely. However, Warner Bros. decided to move ahead with it in February 2020; in May, Snyder announced that the original cut would be released as Zack Snyder’s Justice League via the streaming service HBO Max. It cost around $70 million to complete the visual effects, score, and editing, with new material filmed in October 2020. The release was originally planned as both a six-episode miniseries and a four-hour film, but the miniseries concept was scrapped in January 2021. The film is dedicated to the memory of Snyder’s daughter, Autumn.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League was released on HBO Max in the United States on March 18, 2021. It became the fourth-most-streamed film debut on the platform that year. Most critics considered it to be superior to the 2017 theatrical version, with praise for Snyder’s direction and improved characterization, but criticism for the film’s length.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Five thousand years ago, Darkseid and his Parademon army attempt to conquer Earth using the three Mother Boxes. They are foiled by a coalition of Old Gods, Amazons, Atlanteans, humans, and a Green Lantern, leaving behind the Mother Boxes, which are hidden separately. In the present, Superman’s death triggers the Boxes’ reactivation, attracting Steppenwolf, Darkseid’s disgraced lieutenant. Steppenwolf aims to regain Darkseid’s favor by gathering the boxes to form “The Unity,” which would terraform Earth into a copy of Apokolips, their homeworld.

Steppenwolf fights the Amazons on Themyscira and takes the Mother Box guarded by them. Diana Prince receives a warning from the Amazons, then learns about Darkseid’s assault on Earth and Steppenwolf, informing Bruce Wayne. The two seek to form a team of metahumans to protect Earth. Having previously failed to recruit Arthur Curry, Bruce locates Barry Allen, while Diana locates Victor Stone. Barry joins while Victor refuses until his father Silas and other S.T.A.R. Labs employees are kidnapped by Parademons seeking the Mother Box the humans hid. Steppenwolf kidnaps and slaughters Atlantean Guards watching over their Mother Box and takes it with only Mera and a reluctant Arthur left to guard it.

Although the team rescues the kidnapped employees, the facility is flooded, trapping them until Arthur helps them escape. Victor retrieves the last Mother Box, which he had hidden. He reveals that it was used to rebuild his body after a car accident, explaining that the Boxes can rearrange matter at the will of their masters. The group realizes that they could use the Box to resurrect Superman, though Steppenwolf will inevitably discover it as a result. Meanwhile, Steppenwolf receives a vision of the Anti-Life Equation, a secret power sought by Darkseid, and he informs his master. An amnesiac Clark Kent is resurrected, but attacks the group. Before he can kill Bruce, Lois Lane arrives and calms Clark down, and they go to his family home in Smallville, where he regains his memories.

Steppenwolf retrieves the last Mother Box, but not before Silas sacrifices himself to supercharge it with laser heat, allowing Victor to track it. Without Superman, the five heroes travel to an abandoned Russian city, where Steppenwolf aims to form the Unity. They fight their way through the Parademons and Superman arrives and subdues Steppenwolf, but Victor fails to separate the boxes. The Unity is formed, destroying the planet. Barry enters the Speed Force before the shockwave reaches him, reversing time to give Victor the necessary charge that allows him and Superman to separate the Boxes. The team kills Steppenwolf, throwing his body to Darkseid’s feet back on Apokolips through a portal. Darkseid vows to return to Earth to complete his quest for the Anti-Life Equation.

After the battle, Bruce, Diana, and Alfred Pennyworth agree to set up a headquarters for the team at Wayne Manor. Barry acquires a job in Central City’s police department, Victor is inspired by an audio message left by Silas to use his abilities for good, Arthur goes to see his father, and Clark resumes his life as a reporter and Superman.

Enola Holmes (2020) Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Enola Holmes is the youngest sibling in the famous Holmes family. She is extremely intelligent, observant, and insightful, defying the social norms for women of the time. Her mother, Eudoria, has taught her everything from chess to jujitsu and encouraged her to be strong-willed and to think independently.

On her sixteenth birthday, Enola wakes to find that her mother has disappeared, leaving behind only some birthday gifts. A week later, she meets her brothers Mycroft and Sherlock at a train station, although they fail to recognize her at first, not having seen her in many years. Sherlock finds her to be intelligent, whereas Mycroft finds her troublesome, and as her legal guardian intends to send her away to a finishing school run by the stern Miss Harrison. The flower cards left by her mother reveal secret messages and lead to hidden money, which Enola uses to escape disguised as a boy. On the train, she finds the young Viscount Tewkesbury hidden in a travel bag. She thinks he is a nincompoop, but warns him that a man in a brown bowler hat (named Linthorn) is on the train searching for him. Linthorn subsequently finds and tries to kill Tewkesbury, leading to him and Enola jumping off the train to escape. Neither having any food, Tewkesbury forages for edible plants and fungi. They travel to London and part ways.

Disguised as a proper Victorian lady, Enola continues to trace Eudoria and leaves cryptic messages in the newspaper personal advertisements. Enola discovers pamphlets and a safehouse containing explosives, and learns that Eudoria is part of a radical group of suffragettes. She is attacked by Linthorn, who tortures her for information about Tewkesbury, attempting to drown her. They fight, but she ignites the explosives in the safehouse and escapes. Enola decides to pause the search for her mother and instead find Tewkesbury again, intending to save him because she thinks him incapable of defending himself. Enola visits the Tewkesbury estate at Basilwether Hall to learn more. Meanwhile, Mycroft has Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard search for Enola.

Enola finds Tewkesbury selling flowers in Covent Garden and warns him of the danger. She takes him to her lodgings, but is caught by Lestrade and imprisoned in Miss Harrison’s finishing school by Mycroft. Sherlock visits her and admits he is impressed by her detective work. Tewkesbury sneaks into the school, and they escape together, stealing Miss Harrison’s motor car. They reach a fork in the road and, rather than returning to London, Enola decides they must go to Basilwether Hall and face Tewkesbury’s uncle, who she has deduced was trying to kill him. The estate is seemingly deserted, but Linthorn ambushes them, firing a shotgun. Enola trips him using a jujitsu move, causing a fatal head injury. Tewkesbury’s grandmother is revealed as the real villain: a staunch traditionalist, she did not want him to take his father’s place in the House of Lords and vote for the Reform Bill. She shoots her grandson in the chest, but he survives thanks to a plate of armor he had hidden under his clothes. Sherlock arrives at Scotland Yard and Lestrade asks him two questions: first, how he managed to solve the case, and second, how his sister solved it first.

Enola shares a tearful goodbye with Tewkesbury. She finds and deciphers a message in a newspaper but deduces that it was not sent by her mother. At the meeting point, Sherlock and Mycroft discuss Enola, and Sherlock suggests becoming her guardian. They decide to leave but Sherlock notices a clue, choosing not to look for Enola. All the while Enola has been watching, disguised as a newsboy. Returning to her lodgings, Enola finds her mother waiting there. They embrace, and Eudoria explains why she had to leave, and why she must leave again, but she is impressed by what Enola has become. Enola has found her freedom and her purpose—she is a detective and a finder of lost souls.

Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 2020, Bill and Ted have failed to write a prophesied song to unite the world. Their marriages and careers are deteriorating, and time and space are beginning to collapse.

Kelly, the daughter of Bill and Ted’s deceased time-travelling guide Rufus, arrives to take them to 2720 AD in San Dimas, California. Her mother, the Great Leader, tells them that they have until 7:17 p.m. that night to write the song or reality will collapse. Fearing they will not be able to write the song in time, they use Rufus’s time-traveling phone booth to get the song from their future selves. However, they discover their future selves have failed to write the song, their wives have left them and they blame their past selves for their failures.

An impatient Great Leader sends a time-traveling robot, Dennis, to kill them, hoping it will stabilize reality. Kelly travels back to the present to warn them, but instead meets their daughters, Billie and Theadora (Thea), who decide to help make the song. Using Kelly’s time machine, Billie and Thea recruit musicians Jimi Hendrix, Louis Armstrong, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ling Lun (in 2,600 BCE), and Grom, a drummer from prehistoric times. Billie, Thea, and their band return to the present to meet up with Kelly and a time-displaced Kid Cudi, but Dennis inadvertently kills them and sends them to Hell.

Bill and Ted travel to 2067 and find their elderly future selves on their deathbeds. The elder Bill and Ted give their younger selves a USB drive containing the fabled song by “Preston / Logan”, stating that it must be performed at 7:17 PM at “MP 46”. Dennis appears and, upon learning Bill and Ted have the song, informs them of his blunder. Bill destroys the USB to goad Dennis into killing them so they can rescue their daughters in Hell. This backfires as a distraught Dennis turns his weapon on himself, but Bill and Ted throw themselves in the way of the beam. All three are sent to Hell, where Bill and Ted locate their daughters and the band. With the help of their daughters, Bill and Ted settle their differences with their old bandmate Death to return everyone alive to 2020.

The group arrive on Interstate 210 at the MP 46 marker, just as reality is collapsing. Bill and Ted realize that the song is only to be performed by them, not written by them, and that “Preston / Logan” on the USB drive actually refers to Billie and Thea. Additionally, for the song to repair the universe, it must be performed by every person in history, all across time. They are joined by their wives, who have realized they are happy with their lives.

The four use Rufus’ phone booth to create infinite copies of themselves across time and space, handing instruments to everyone who ever lived. Everyone across reality performs the song, with Billie and Thea producing, while Bill and Ted lead the band on guitar. The performance repairs the universe and everyone returns to their proper time periods.

THE INVISIBLE MAN (2020)


 

The Invisible Man is a 2020 American-Australian science fiction horror film written and directed by Leigh Whannell, inspired by the novel of the same name by H. G. Wells. It follows a woman who believes she is being stalked and gaslit by her abusive and wealthy ex-boyfriend—even after his apparent suicide—and ultimately deduces that he has acquired the ability to become invisible. The film stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Michael Dorman, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

The development of a new film based on Wells’s 1897 novel began as early as 2006. The project was revived as part of Universal’s attempted Dark Universe in 2016, intended to consist of their classic monsters, with Johnny Depp attached to star in the title role. After The Mummy was released in 2017 to critical and financial failure, development was halted on all projects. In early 2019, the studio changed their plans from a serialized universe to films based on individualized story-telling and the project reentered development. Principal photography lasted from July to September 2019 in Sydney, Australia.

The Invisible Man was released in the United States on February 28, 2020, by Universal Pictures. The film received positive reviews from critics, with praise for Moss’ performance and, as described by TheWrap, the combination of scares with “a smart narrative about how people can be manipulated and abused in harmful relationships”. The film grossed $142 million worldwide against a $7 million budget. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic closing theaters across the world, Universal announced the film would be made available for digital rental just three weeks after it was released theatrically.

The Invisible Man (2020) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Cecilia Kass is trapped in a violent and controlling relationship with wealthy optics engineer and businessman Adrian Griffin. One night, Cecilia drugs Adrian with diazepam and escapes his highly secured house with the assistance of her younger sister, Emily.

Cecilia hides out in the home of her sister’s friend Detective James Lanier and his teenage daughter, Sydney. Two weeks after Cecilia’s escape, Adrian seemingly commits suicide and leaves her $5 million. His lawyer brother, Tom, handles the arrangements. Cecilia suspects another presence in the house after several strange events, but James assures her she is just traumatized and paranoid. During a job interview, she finds her work portfolio’s contents removed, then faints. The doctor says high levels of diazepam were found in her system. In her bathroom, she finds the same bottle of bloodied diazepam with which she drugged Adrian, and dropped, during her escape.

Cecilia, accompanied by James, meets with Tom. She believes that Adrian faked his death and used his optics expertise to become invisible in order to torment her, but this idea is rebuffed. Later, Sydney is hit by an unseen force while comforting Cecilia, and she and James assume that Cecilia did it and is becoming unbalanced. Alone at the house, Cecilia tries various tactics to catch the figure. She finds Adrian’s phone in the attic, on which she immediately receives a text saying “surprise”. Cecilia dumps paint down the attic trap door and it coats a previously invisible figure. A violent struggle ensues but she escapes. She goes to Adrian’s home to investigate his lab, where she finds an invisible bodysuit, confirming her suspicions. Right after she hides the suit in their former bedroom’s closet, the invisible figure attacks again, so she flees and contacts Emily. The pair meet at a restaurant, where the invisible figure slits Emily’s throat and places the knife in Cecilia’s hand, framing her for murder.

While awaiting trial, Cecilia is remanded to a psychiatric hospital, where she learns she is pregnant. Tom offers to get her charges dropped if she agrees to “return to him” and raise the child, implying that Tom helped stage his brother’s suicide. He reveals Adrian tampered with her birth control to impregnate her. Cecilia refuses the offer and steals a fountain pen from him. That night, she fakes attempting suicide to lure out the invisible figure. When the figure tries to stop her, she stabs him repeatedly with the pen, causing the suit to malfunction. The security team arrives, but the figure incapacitates them before fleeing the hospital, with Cecilia in pursuit. To protect her unborn child, the figure instead threatens to attack those she loves.

Cecilia races to James’ house and finds the figure attacking him and Sydney. She shoots the figure to death, but when unmasked, she finds Tom in the suit. Police storm Adrian’s house and find him alive, tied up and claiming that Tom held him prisoner. They conclude that Tom killed Emily, as well, but Cecilia believes that Adrian set his brother up as the fall guy for his crimes.

To get Adrian’s confession, a now exonerated Cecilia meets him at his house secretly wearing a wire tap, while James listens in from a few blocks away. She agrees to mend their relationship, but only if he confesses to killing Emily. Adrian insists that Tom was responsible, but claims that the experience changed his outlook on life and how he treated her. After Adrian says the word “surprise”, Cecilia excuses herself. Moments later, the security camera captures Adrian seemingly slitting his own throat. Cecilia returns and, apparently distraught, calls 911. Out of the camera’s sight, however, she taunts a dying Adrian, indicating that she had used the spare bodysuit to kill him.

When James arrives, she confirms what the camera captured. He notices she is carrying the suit, but allows her to leave.

The series began with a theatrical feature film that was released on August 15, 2008, and debuted on Cartoon Network two months later on October 3, 2008. It is set in the fictional Star Wars galaxy during the three years between the prequel films Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Being a reboot of the previous 2D series Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003–2005), each episode had a running time of approximately 22 minutes to fill a half-hour time slot instead of the 3–15 minute episodes that the previous series had. Dave Filoni was the supervising director of the series.

In early 2013, Lucasfilm announced that The Clone Wars would be “winding down”. Thirteen episodes comprising a new sixth season were made available in the U.S. for streaming on Netflix, along with the entirety of the series, beginning March 7, 2014. A project known as The Clone Wars Legacy adapted unproduced story arcs into other formats, such as comics and novels. The series was revived for a seventh and final season of 12 new episodes, which premiered on Disney+ on February 21, 2020.

The Clone Wars received mostly positive reception from critics and became a significant ratings success, becoming one of Cartoon Network’s highest-rated shows during its initial run. The series was also nominated for numerous industry awards, including the Daytime Emmy Awards and the Annie Awards.

A related series, Star Wars Rebels, was released during the hiatus between the sixth and seventh seasons of The Clone Wars, featuring several characters from The Clone Wars, including Captain Rex, Ahsoka Tano and Maul. Star Wars: The Bad Batch, a spin-off series centering on the titular clone trooper team introduced in the seventh season, premiered on May 4, 2021.

SEASON 7: THE FINAL SEASON (2020)
[DISNEY+]


 

On July 19, 2018, Lucasfilm announced at San Diego Comic-Con that The Clone Wars would return with 12 new episodes to be released on Disney+ during the service’s first year. The seventh and final season premiered on February 21, 2020.

PLOT SUMMARY

Season seven consists of three story arcs. The first one is focused on Captain Rex’s character, as he, Anakin, and a team of clones with genetic mutations rescue ARC Trooper Echo, previously believed to have been killed in action, and defeat the Separatists on Anaxes with his help. The second one focuses on Ahsoka, who befriends sisters Trace and Rafa Martez and helps them settle a debt with the Pyke Syndicate, while trying to conceal her Force powers because of the sisters’ hatred of Jedi. The final arc, which is set concurrently with Revenge of the Sith, depicts the Siege of Mandalore, a battle that had been referenced in previous Star Wars media. Ahsoka reluctantly returns to the Republic to lead an assault alongside Rex and Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze against Darth Maul’s forces on Mandalore in hopes of capturing him. Unbeknowst to them, Maul has foreseen the fall of the Republic and the Jedi Order, and Darth Sidious turning Anakin to the dark side, and hopes to prevent these events by killing the latter. After Maul is captured, Sidious executes Order 66, causing Ahsoka to be attacked by her own clone troopers, whom she is hesitant to kill. She manages to restore Rex’s free will, and releases Maul to cause a distraction, but he ends up disabling the ship they are on. All three ultimately escape, with Ahsoka and Rex later burying the clones who died in the ship’s crash, and going their separate ways. The final scene of the series shows Darth Vader finding Ahsoka’s lightsaber among the ship’s wreckage some time later, and leaving with it in silence.

Birds of Prey (2020) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

BIRDS OF PREY (2020)


 

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), also known as Birds of Prey and Harley Quinn or simply Birds of Prey, is a 2020 American superhero film based on the DC Comics team, the Birds of Prey. Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is the eighth installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and serves as both a spin-off and sequel to Suicide Squad (2016). It was directed by Cathy Yan and written by Christina Hodson. It stars Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, Ella Jay Basco, Ali Wong, and Ewan McGregor. The film follows Harley Quinn, who, after breaking up with the Joker, is threatened by Gotham City crime lord Roman Sionis and joins forces with Helena Bertinelli, Dinah Lance, and Renee Montoya (who go on to form the Birds of Prey) to save Cassandra Cain.

Robbie, who also served as producer, pitched the idea for Birds of Prey to Warner Bros in 2015. The film was announced in May 2016, with Hodson being hired to write the script that November, followed by Yan signing on to direct in April 2018. The majority of the cast and crew were confirmed by December 2018. Principal photography lasted from January to April 2019 in Downtown Los Angeles, parts of the Arts District, Los Angeles, and soundstages at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. Additional filming took place in September 2019.

Birds of Prey is the first DCEU film and the second DC Films production to be rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America, following Joker (2019). The film had its world premiere in Mexico City on January 25, 2020, and was theatrically released in the United States in IMAX, Dolby Cinema, ScreenX and 4DX on February 7, 2020. It grossed $201 million worldwide, falling short of its widely reported break-even point of $250–300 million. The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, with praise for its fast-paced action and Robbie’s performance as Quinn. A spin-off focused on Smollett’s Black Canary is in development.

Birds of Prey (2020) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Four years after the defeat of the Enchantress, the Joker breaks up with Harley Quinn, throwing her out on the Gotham City streets. She is taken in by Doc, the owner of a Taiwanese restaurant, and recovers from her relationship by cutting her hair, adopting a spotted hyena (whom she names after Bruce Wayne), and taking up roller derby.

Harley gets drunk at a nightclub owned by Roman Sionis, a ruthless crime lord, and cripples his driver after said driver insults her. She meets burlesque singer Dinah Lance, who later rescues an intoxicated Harley from an attempted abduction. Sionis is impressed by Dinah’s fighting skills and appoints her as his new driver. The next night, Harley blows up the Ace Chemicals plant as a way to publicly announce her breakup with Joker. Meanwhile, GCPD Detective Renee Montoya investigates a series of mob killings carried out by a crossbow-wielding vigilante. Finding Harley’s necklace at the scene of the Ace Chemicals explosion, Montoya notes that Harley is in danger without the Joker’s protection. She tries to recruit Dinah as an informant, but Dinah rejects the offer.

Sionis sends Dinah and his sadistic right-hand-man Victor Zsasz to retrieve a diamond embedded with the account numbers to the fortune of the Bertinelli crime family, who were massacred years ago. Young pickpocket Cassandra “Cass” Cain steals the diamond from Zsasz and swallows it after she is arrested. Harley, fleeing from Montoya and several other people she had wronged, is captured by Sionis’ men. Zsasz informs Sionis that Cassandra has the diamond, and Dinah warns Montoya. Sionis kidnaps and makes Harley recover the diamond for him, under the threat of death, and also places a bounty on Cassandra. Breaking into the GCPD with a variety of firework-inspired non-lethal grenade launcher rounds, Harley frees Cassandra and the pair escape.

After escaping, Harley and Cassandra bond while hiding out at the former’s apartment. Doc is approached for information by the “crossbow killer”, who is revealed to be Helena Bertinelli. Having survived her family’s massacre and becoming trained as an assassin, Helena has been targeting each of the gangsters responsible for her family’s murders, preferring the moniker “Huntress”. Harley’s apartment is later bombed by criminals looking for Cassandra, and Doc sorrowfully reveals that he sold Harley out. Harley calls Sionis and offers to turn Cassandra over in exchange for his protection, agreeing to meet at an abandoned amusement park. Dinah notifies Montoya of the rendezvous, but her betrayal is noticed by Zsasz, who informs Sionis. A devastated Sionis dons his ritualistic mask from which he gets his nickname, “Black Mask”.

At the park, Montoya confronts Harley, but Harley knocks her out of a window. Zsasz arrives and tranquilizes Harley before holding Dinah at gunpoint, but he is killed by Helena, who reveals Zsasz was the last of her family’s killers. Montoya returns, and a stand-off ensues until they realize Sionis has arrived with a small army of masked criminals. Using Harley’s old gear, the makeshift team successfully withstand and repel their attack. During the battle, Cassandra is captured by Sionis, while Dinah reveals her metahuman ability of supersonic-level screaming, defeating several of Sionis’ mobsters. Harley gives chase on roller skates, and with assistance from Helena, the pair pursue Sionis. At a nearby pier, the final confrontation occurs. Sionis prepares to kill Cassandra, but she pulls the ring from a grenade that she slipped in his jacket after taking it from Harley’s weapons chest earlier. Harley throws Sionis off the pier just before the grenade detonates, killing him.

In the aftermath of destroying Sionis’ criminal empire, Montoya quits the GCPD. Using the money within the accounts hidden inside the diamond (which had been recovered from Cassandra), Helena joins with Dinah and Montoya in establishing a team of vigilantes called the Birds of Prey. Harley and Cassandra escape, selling the diamond itself to a pawn shop and starting their own business.

In a post-credits audio clip, Harley is about to reveal a secret about Batman but is cut-off mid-sentence.

STAR TREK: PICARD (2020)
[CBS All Access/Paramount+]


 

Star Trek: Picard is an American television series created by Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, Kirsten Beyer, and Alex Kurtzman for the streaming service CBS All Access (later rebranded as Paramount+). It is the eighth Star Trek series and was launched in 2020 as part of Kurtzman’s expanded Star Trek Universe. The series features a retired Jean-Luc Picard, who has been deeply affected by the death of Data in the film Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) and the destruction of the planet Romulus in the film Star Trek (2009).

Patrick Stewart executive produces the series and stars as Picard, reprising his role from the series Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as other Star Trek media. Alison Pill, Isa Briones, Evan Evagora, Michelle Hurd, Santiago Cabrera, Harry Treadaway, Jeri Ryan, Orla Brady, and Brent Spiner also star. The series was first rumored in June 2018, and was officially announced that August. Stewart had previously said he would not return to the franchise after Nemesis. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout, Weed Road Pictures, Escapist Fare, and Roddenberry Entertainment, and was designed to be slower and more character-focused than previous series in the franchise. Filming takes place in California, which granted the series large tax credits. Chabon served as showrunner for the first season, with Goldsman and Terry Matalas taking over for the second and third seasons.

Star Trek: Picard premiered on CBS All Access on January 23, 2020, and its first season ran for 10 episodes until March 26. The second season is set to debut on Paramount+ in February 2022, with the third premiering in early 2023. The series was met with positive reviews from critics, who praised Stewart’s performance and the focus on character over action, though some criticized the series’ slow pace. Several tie-in projects were created for the series, including an episode of the companion series Star Trek: Short Treks.

Michael Chabon (born May 24, 1963) is an American novelist, screenwriter, columnist and short story writer. Born in Washington, DC, he spent a year studying at Carnegie Mellon University before transferring to the University of Pittsburgh, graduating in 1984. He subsequently received a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the University of California, Irvine.

Chabon’s first novel, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh (1988), was published when he was 25. He followed it with Wonder Boys (1995) and two short-story collections. In 2000, he published The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, a novel that John Leonard would later call Chabon’s magnum opus. It received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2001.

His novel The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, an alternate history mystery novel, was published in 2007 and won the Hugo, Sidewise, Nebula and Ignotus awards; his serialized novel Gentlemen of the Road appeared in book form in the fall of the same year. In 2012 Chabon published Telegraph Avenue, billed as “a twenty-first century Middlemarch,” concerning the tangled lives of two families in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004. He followed Telegraph Avenue in November 2016 with his latest novel, Moonglow, a fictionalized memoir of his maternal grandfather, based on his deathbed confessions under the influence of powerful painkillers in Chabon’s mother’s California home in 1989.

Chabon’s work is characterized by complex language, and the frequent use of metaphor along with recurring themes such as nostalgia, divorce, abandonment, fatherhood, and most notably issues of Jewish identity. He often includes gay, bisexual, and Jewish characters in his work. Since the late 1990s, he has written in increasingly diverse styles for varied outlets; he is a notable defender of the merits of genre fiction and plot-driven fiction, and, along with novels, has published screenplays, children’s books, comics, and newspaper serials.

Steven William Moffat OBE (born 18 November 1961) is a Scottish television writer and producer. He is best known for his work as showrunner, writer, and executive producer of two BBC One series: the science fiction television series Doctor Who and the contemporary crime drama television series Sherlock, based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. In 2015, Moffat was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire for his services to drama.

Born in Paisley, Scotland, Moffat, the son of a teacher, was formerly a teacher himself. His first television work was the teen drama series Press Gang. His first sitcom, Joking Apart, was inspired by the breakdown of his first marriage. Later in the 1990s, he wrote Chalk, inspired by his own experience as an English teacher. Moffat, a lifelong fan of Doctor Who, wrote the comedic sketch episode The Curse of Fatal Death for the Comic Relief charity telethon, which aired in early 1999. His early-2000s sitcom Coupling was based upon the development of his relationship with television producer Sue Vertue.

In March 2004, Moffat was announced as one of the writers for the revived Doctor Who TV series. He wrote six episodes under executive producer Russell T Davies, which aired from 2005 to 2008. Moffat’s scripts during this era won him three Hugo Awards, a BAFTA Craft Award, and a BAFTA Cymru Award. Between episodes, he wrote and produced the modern-day drama series Jekyll, based on the novella Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. In May 2008, it was announced that Moffat would succeed Davies as showrunner, lead writer and executive producer of Doctor Who. Around the same time, he dropped his contract with film director Steven Spielberg for a film trilogy based on artist Hergé’s character Tintin. Part of the lone script he wrote was used in Spielberg’s film The Adventures of Tintin, eventually released in 2011.

Production on Sherlock‘s unaired pilot episode began in January 2009, while series 5 of Doctor Who—Moffat’s first series as executive producer—began production the following July. Moffat won another Hugo for his writing as a Doctor Who showrunner, while his work as a Sherlock showrunner won him a BAFTA Craft Award and two Primetime Emmy Awards. In January 2016, Moffat announced he would be stepping down from running Doctor Who after six series. Sherlock‘s fourth and most recent series aired in January 2017. Moffat’s last Doctor Who episode, “Twice Upon a Time”, aired at Christmas in 2017. In March 2019, Moffat began production on Dracula, based on Bram Stoker’s novel, which was commissioned by BBC One and Netflix and was first broadcast on BBC One in January 2020.

The Witcher is a fantasy drama streaming television series created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, based on the book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. Set on a fictional, medieval-inspired landmass known as “the Continent”, The Witcher explores the legend of Geralt of Rivia and Princess Ciri, who are linked to each other by destiny. It stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan and Anya Chalotra.

The first season consisted of eight episodes and was released on Netflix in its entirety on December 20, 2019. It was based on The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, which are collections of short stories that precede the main Witcher saga. The second season, consisting of eight episodes, is scheduled to be released on December 17, 2021. In September 2021, Netflix announced that the series had been renewed for a third season.

Writing

The first season was told in a non-linear manner, spanning different time periods. Hissrich said this was inspired by Christopher Nolan’s 2017 film Dunkirk. She pointed out that Yennefer’s story covers around 70 years and Ciri’s only about 2 weeks. Hissrich also said that Yennefer and Cirilla were given more prominence to allow the viewers to understand them better. By showing their backstories, along with Geralt’s, “we get down to the soul of the story. It’s the story of a broken family. It’s a story of three people who are on their own in the world, really orphans all living in the margins of society who are determined to not need anyone, and yet of course they do.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

For Star Wars.

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER (2019)


 

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (also known as Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker) is a 2019 American epic space opera film produced, co-written, and directed by J. J. Abrams. Produced by Lucasfilm and Abrams’ production company Bad Robot Productions, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following The Force Awakens (2015) and The Last Jedi (2017), and the final episode of the nine-part “Skywalker saga”. Its ensemble cast includes Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Naomi Ackie, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’o, Keri Russell, Joonas Suotamo, Kelly Marie Tran, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. The Rise of Skywalker follows Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron as they lead the Resistance’s final stand against Supreme Leader Kylo Ren and the First Order, who are aided by the return of the deceased Galactic Emperor, Palpatine.

Following initial reports that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would write the script for Episode IX, in August 2015, Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct and to write a script with his collaborator Derek Connolly; both ultimately retain story credit with Abrams and Chris Terrio. In September 2017, Trevorrow left the project following creative differences with producer Kathleen Kennedy, and Abrams returned as director. John Williams, composer for the previous episodic films, returned to compose the score–his final score for the franchise. Principal photography began in August 2018 at Pinewood Studios in England and wrapped in February 2019, with post-production completed in November 2019. With an estimated budget of $275 million, it is one of the most expensive films ever made.

The Rise of Skywalker premiered in Los Angeles on December 16, 2019, and was released in the United States on December 20. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the acting, action sequences, musical score, and visual effects, but criticized the story, pacing, and its perceived departures from the plot and themes of The Last Jedi. It grossed over $1.078 billion worldwide, becoming the seventh-highest-grossing film of 2019; although it was the lowest-grossing installment of the trilogy, it turned an estimated net profit of $300 million. It received three nominations at the 92nd Academy Awards (Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Sound Editing) as well as three at the 73rd British Academy Film Awards (also Best Special Visual Effects, Best Original Music, and Best Sound).

PLOT SUMMARY

Following a threat of revenge by the resurrected Emperor Palpatine, Kylo Ren obtains a Sith Wayfinder, leading him to the uncharted planet Exegol. There, he finds Palpatine, who reveals that he created Snoke as a puppet ruler to control the First Order and lure Kylo to the dark side. Palpatine unveils the Final Order—a secret armada of Star Destroyers—and tells Kylo to find and kill Rey, who is continuing her Jedi training under Resistance leader Leia Organa. Poe Dameron and Finn deliver intelligence from a spy that Palpatine is on Exegol; Rey has learned from Luke Skywalker’s notes that a Sith Wayfinder can lead them there. Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewbacca, BB-8, and C-3PO depart in the Millennium Falcon to Pasaana, where a clue to a Wayfinder is hidden.

Kylo initiates a Force bond with Rey to discover her location; he travels to Pasaana with his warrior subordinates, the Knights of Ren. With the help of Lando Calrissian, Rey and her friends find the clue—a dagger inscribed with Sith text, which C-3PO’s programming forbids him from interpreting—and the remains of a Jedi hunter named Ochi and his ship. Rey senses Kylo nearby, and faces him. The First Order captures the Falcon, Chewbacca, and the dagger; attempting to save Chewbacca, Rey accidentally destroys a First Order transport with Force lightning. Believing Chewbacca to be dead, the group escapes on Ochi’s ship.

The group travels to Kijimi, where a droidsmith extracts the Sith text from C-3PO’s memory, revealing coordinates to a Wayfinder. Rey senses Chewbacca is alive, and the group mounts a rescue mission to Kylo’s Star Destroyer. Rey recovers the dagger and has visions of Ochi killing her parents with it. Kylo informs her that she is Palpatine’s granddaughter; the Sith Lord had ordered Ochi to recover Rey as a child, but her parents hid her on Jakku to protect her. General Hux saves Poe, Finn, and Chewbacca from execution, revealing himself as the spy. He permits the group to escape on the Falcon, but is discovered and killed by Allegiant General Pryde. The group flies the Falcon to the Wayfinder’s coordinates on a moon in the Endor system.

Rey retrieves the Wayfinder from the remains of the second Death Star, but she is met by Kylo, who destroys the Wayfinder and duels her. In a dying act, Leia calls to Kylo through the Force, distracting him as Rey impales him. Sensing Leia’s death, Rey heals Kylo and takes his ship to exile herself on Ahch-To. There, Luke’s Force spirit encourages Rey to face Palpatine and gives her Leia’s lightsaber. Rey leaves for Exegol in Luke’s X-wing fighter, using the Wayfinder from Kylo’s ship. Meanwhile, Kylo converses with a memory of his father, Han Solo; he throws away his lightsaber and reclaims his identity as Ben Solo. Sensing Leia’s death and Ben’s redemption, Palpatine sends one of his superlaser-equipped Star Destroyers to destroy Kijimi as a show of force.

Rey transmits her coordinates to R2-D2, allowing the Resistance—now led by Poe and Finn—to follow her to Exegol. There, she confronts Palpatine; he demands that she kill him to allow his spirit to pass into her. The Resistance launches an attack on the Sith fleet, with Lando leading reinforcements from across the galaxy. Ben arrives on the planet, where he overpowers the Knights of Ren and joins Rey, but Palpatine drains their power to rejuvenate himself. He incapacitates Ben and attacks the Resistance fleet with Force lightning. Weakened, Rey hears the voices of past Jedi, who lend her their strength. Palpatine attacks her with lightning, but Rey deflects it using Luke and Leia’s lightsabers, obliterating Palpatine before dying herself. The wounded Ben uses the Force to revive Rey at the cost of his own life; Rey kisses Ben before he vanishes. Meanwhile, the Resistance defeats Palpatine’s armada, while people across the galaxy rise against the First Order. The Resistance returns to their base to celebrate.

Rey visits the abandoned homestead on Tatooine where Luke grew up and buries his and Leia’s lightsabers. A passerby asks her name; seeing the Force spirits of Luke and Leia watching her, she replies, “Rey Skywalker.”

His directorial film work includes Mission: Impossible III (2006), Star Trek (2009), Super 8 (2011), and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). He also directed, produced and co-wrote The Force Awakens, the seventh episode of the Star Wars saga and the first film of the sequel trilogy. The film is his highest-grossing, as well as the fourth-highest-grossing film of all time not adjusted for inflation. He returned to Star Wars by executive producing The Last Jedi (2017), and directing and co-writing The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

Abrams’s frequent collaborators include producer Bryan Burk, producer/director Tommy Gormley, actors Greg Grunberg, Simon Pegg, Amanda Foreman, and Keri Russell, composer Michael Giacchino, writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, cinematographers Daniel Mindel and Larry Fong, and editors Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey.

Career

On January 25, 2013, The Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm officially announced Abrams as director and producer of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh entry in the Star Wars film saga. It was also announced that Bryan Burk and Bad Robot Productions would produce the feature. Following the news that he would direct The Force Awakens, speculation arose as to Abrams’s future with Paramount Pictures, under which he had released all of his previous feature work as a director, and which had a first-look deal with his company, Bad Robot Productions. Paramount vice-chairman Rob Moore stated that Abrams would continue to have a hand in the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible franchises going forward.

Abrams directed, produced, and co-wrote the screenplay for The Force Awakens, which opened in theaters on December 18, 2015, and grossed over $2 billion at the box office, making Abrams the first director of a $2 billion movie since James Cameron. Despite its strong box office performance and positive reviews, the film was considered by some, including Star Wars creator George Lucas, to be too similar to the original 1977 film. In 2016, Abrams responded towards these complaints, stating: “What was important for me was introducing brand new characters using relationships that were embracing the history that we know to tell a story that is new — to go backwards to go forwards”.

In September 2017, it was announced by Lucasfilm’s president, Kathleen Kennedy, that Abrams would be returning to direct and co-write Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with Chris Terrio. The film was released in December 2019; it received mixed reviews from critics and fans, while audience reactions leaned more positively.

Doctor Sleep (2019) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

DOCTOR SLEEP (2019)


 

Doctor Sleep is a 2019 American supernatural horror film written and directed by Mike Flanagan. It is based on the 2013 novel of the same name by Stephen King which is a sequel to King’s 1977 novel The Shining. It is the second film in The Shining franchise. The film, which also serves as a sequel to the 1980 film adaptation of The Shining, directed by Stanley Kubrick, is set several decades after the events of the original and combines elements of the 1977 novel as well. Ewan McGregor plays the lead role as Danny Torrance, a man with psychic abilities who struggles with childhood trauma. Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Cliff Curtis, and Carl Lumbly have supporting roles.

In the film, Dan Torrance, now an adult, must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as the True Knot, whose members prey on children who possess the shining to extend their own lives.

Warner Bros. Pictures began developing a film adaptation shortly after Doctor Sleep was published in 2013. Writer-producer Akiva Goldsman wrote a script, but the studio did not secure a budget for the film until the box office success of its 2017 horror film It, also based on a novel by King. Flanagan was hired to rewrite Goldsman’s script and direct the film. Flanagan said the film would try to reconcile the differences between The Shining novel and film. Filming began in September 2018 in Georgia, including Atlanta and the surrounding area, and concluded in December 2018.

Doctor Sleep held its world premiere at the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles on October 21, 2019, and was theatrically released worldwide from October 31, 2019, and in the United States on November 8, 2019. The film received positive reviews from critics, with praise for its performances but criticism for its length. Grossing just $72.3 million worldwide, its performance at the box office was considered to be disappointing compared to the other King adaptations released in 2019, It Chapter Two and Pet Sematary. However, despite the box office performance, the film enjoyed a resurgence of interest and popularity when it premiered on streaming services in 2020.

Doctor Sleep (2019) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 2011, Dan Torrance, still traumatized from his family’s 1980 ordeal at the Overlook hotel, lives in a New Hampshire town and drinks alcohol to suppress his shining. He is recovering through Alcoholics Anonymous and becomes a hospice orderly, where he uses his shining to comfort dying patients, who nickname him “Doctor Sleep”. Meanwhile, the True Knot, a cult of psychics led by Rose the Hat, extend their lifespans by consuming “steam”, a psychic essence released by torturing and killing those who have the shining.

In 2019, the True Knots are starving as steam has become increasingly rare. They torture a boy to death for steam, which Abra Stone senses, a young girl whose shining is even greater than Dan’s. She telepathically alerts Dan about the murder, but Rose senses Abra in the process. Rose projects her consciousness across the country and infiltrates Abra’s mind, but is physically injured by a psychic trap set by Abra. Rose sends the remaining members after Abra for steam.

Abra informs Dan about the True Knot. Although he is initially skeptical about stopping them, he changes his mind and recruits his friend, Billy Freeman, and Abra’s father, Dave, to help. They successfully kill most of the group except Rose, but Billy and Dave are killed and Abra is captured by Rose’s partner, Crow Daddy. Dan shines into Abra and saves her from Crow Daddy, killing the True Knot member in the process. Dan brings Abra to the Overlook as a last resort, believing it will be equally dangerous for Rose. He starts the hotel’s boiler and explores the dormant building, “awakening” it with his shining. At the same time, he has visions of his time at the hotel, including his father Jack’s breaking into a bathroom door to kill his mother Wendy.

Rose arrives at the Overlook and overpowers Dan in a fight, but he saves himself by opening boxes in his mind where he had trapped the Overlook’s ghosts. Drawn by Rose’s power, the ghosts overwhelm and devour her, before turning on Danny and possessing him in a bid to try and make him kill Abra. After an emotional moment where she cuts through his possessed mind, bringing back the real Danny, he realizes that to “close the door” once and for all, The Overlook has to burn.

Danny has to remain behind to get the job done, telling Abra to leave to save herself. He goes to the boiler room but regains control before the hotel can make him deactivate it. Overloading the boiler to the hotel, he watches the fire spreading. And as the last moment of peace with Wendy, Dan sees a vision of himself as a child being comforted by his mother. Abra survives the explosion as help arrives at the burning hotel.

Sometime later, she speaks to Dan’s projection just like he used to speak with Dick, Dan comforts Abra, telling her to “shine on” and not to hide her gifts from the world, and they assure each other that they will both be okay. Abra starts to own her powers at that moment, she finally tells her mother the truth—that she’s been conversing with a ghost, that Danny and her dad are okay, and there is an afterlife where they’re at peace.

In the final scene, Abra sees the woman in the tub, heading into her bathroom to dispose of another one of the Overlook’s insidious ghouls, just as Danny did all those years earlier.

Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 1998, three years after destroying Cyberdyne Systems Corporation, Sarah and John Connor are enjoying life by a beach in Livingston, Guatemala, when they are suddenly accosted by a T-800 Terminator. One of several sent back through time by Skynet, the Terminator kills John and leaves, despite Sarah’s attempts to stop it.

An advanced Terminator, the Rev-9, is sent back in time to Mexico City in 2020, to murder Dani Ramos, while a cybernetically enhanced soldier, Grace, is sent from 2042 to protect her. The Rev-9, disguised as Dani’s father, infiltrates the automobile assembly plant where Dani and her brother Diego work, but is thwarted by Grace, who escapes with the siblings. The Rev-9, using its ability to split into two distinct entities (its cybernetic endoskeleton and shape-shifting liquid metal exterior), pursues them, killing Diego and cornering Grace and Dani. However, Sarah arrives and temporarily disables both entities using explosives.

Dani, Grace, and Sarah retreat to a motel. Sarah reveals that she found them because in the years since John’s death, she has received encrypted messages detailing the locations of arriving Terminators, each ending with “For John”, allowing her to destroy them before they become threats. Grace notes that Skynet and John do not exist in her future and thus Sarah had succeeded in destroying the former after Cyberdyne went defunct. However, humanity’s future is threatened by another AI called Legion, originally developed for cyberwarfare; this system is built in Skynet’s place. When Legion became a threat to humans, an attempt was made to neutralize it with nuclear weapons, resulting in a nuclear holocaust and the AI creating a global network of machines to terminate the human survivors. The survivors then organized as the Human Resistance to counter Legion’s onslaughts, and Dani’s destiny is linked to their war against it.

Grace traces Sarah’s messages to Laredo, Texas. Barely evading the Rev-9 and the authorities while crossing the Mexico–United States border, they arrive at their source, where they discover the same T-800 that murdered John. Having fulfilled its mission and with Skynet no longer existing, the T-800 was left aimless. Through learning, however, it became self-aware. During that time, it learned from humanity and developed a conscience, taking the name “Carl” and adopting a human family. After learning how its actions affected Sarah and being able to detect the location of temporal displacements, Carl decided to forewarn her of them to give her purpose to make amends. Carl offers to join them against the Rev-9, and they prepare to destroy it, with Sarah begrudgingly agreeing to work together for Dani’s sake. Anticipating the Rev-9’s arrival, Carl bids its family farewell and tells them to escape.

They seek out a military-grade electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from an acquaintance of Sarah’s. The Rev-9 catches up with them, forcing them to steal a plane to escape, though the EMPs are destroyed in the resulting shootout. During the flight, Grace reveals the Rev-9’s motive that Dani becomes the future founding commander of the Resistance who destroyed Legion. The Rev-9 boards their airplane and temporarily subdues Carl, forcing Grace, Sarah, and Dani to parachute from the plane into a river near a hydroelectric plant, with Carl and the Rev-9 following close behind.

Bludgeoned, the group makes their stand inside the plant. In the ensuing battle, Carl and Grace force the Rev-9 into a spinning turbine, causing an explosion that critically damages the two Terminators, while mortally wounding Grace. The severely damaged Rev-9 endoskeleton incapacitates Sarah, forcing Dani to confront it herself. A dying Grace tells Dani to use her power source to destroy the Rev-9. Dani tries to fight it but is quickly overpowered. Carl reactivates itself and restrains the Rev-9, allowing Dani to stab it with Grace’s power source. Carl drags itself and the Rev-9 over a ledge, right before the power core explodes, destroying them both.

Sometime later, Dani and Sarah watch a ten-year-old Grace at a playground with her family, the former determined to avert Grace’s death and Legion’s rise. Sarah then tells Dani she needs to get ready, with Grace watching as the pair drives off.

Watchmen (2019) [HBO] – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

WATCHMEN (2019)
[HBO]


 

Watchmen is an American superhero drama limited series based on the 1986 DC Comics series of the same title, created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The TV series was created for HBO by Damon Lindelof, who also served as an executive producer and writer. Its ensemble cast includes Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Andrew Howard, Jacob Ming-Trent, Tom Mison, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Louis Gossett Jr. and Jeremy Irons. Jean Smart and Hong Chau joined the cast in later episodes.

Lindelof likened the television series to a “remix” of the original comic series. While the series is technically a sequel that takes place 34 years after the events of the comics within the same alternate reality, Lindelof wanted to introduce new characters and conflicts which created a new story within the Watchmen continuity, rather than creating a reboot. The series focuses on events surrounding racist violence in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 2019. A white supremacist group called the Seventh Kavalry has taken up arms against the Tulsa Police Department because of perceived racial injustices, causing the police to conceal their identities with masks to prevent the Seventh Kavalry from targeting them in their homes following the “White Night”. Angela Abar (King), a detective known as Sister Night, investigates the murder of her friend and the chief of the police, Judd Crawford (Johnson), and discovers secrets regarding the situations around vigilantism.

The series, originally promoted by HBO as an ongoing drama series, premiered on October 20, 2019, before concluding its nine-episode run on December 15. Lindelof left his role as showrunner after the first season, stating that he had completed his intended story. HBO subsequently confirmed there are no further plans for the show to continue without Lindelof returning in some capacity, and reclassified the work as a limited series with possible future installments.

Watchmen received widespread critical acclaim for its performances, writing, visuals, score, and expansion of the source material, as well as commendation for highlighting the 1921 Tulsa race massacre, which became more poignant in the wake of the 2020 George Floyd protests. The series received several awards, including 26 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and 11 wins, including Best Limited Series, King for Best Actress for a Limited Series, and Abdul-Mateen for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series; the most for any show in 2020.

Watchmen (2019) – Season 1 Trailer

PREMISE

The series takes place 34 years after the events of the comic series. In the comic’s alternate history of the 20th century, vigilantes, once seen as heroes, were outlawed due to their violent methods. In 1985, Adrian Veidt, formerly known as the vigilante Ozymandias, created a fake attack on New York City by a squid-like alien that resulted in millions within New York being killed, coercing nations to work together against a common threat and to avert a nuclear holocaust. Veidt’s actions disgusted his former companions, with Rorschach planning to tell the world of Veidt’s misdeeds before he was vaporized by Doctor Manhattan, who subsequently left the planet. Unbeknownst to Manhattan, Rorschach had sent his journal to be published beforehand.

The show takes place in 2019 Tulsa, Oklahoma. A white supremacist group, the Seventh Kavalry, inspired by Rorschach’s writings and masked image, wages violent war against minorities and the police that enforce special reparations for victims of racial injustice. On Christmas Eve 2016, during an event that came to be known as the “White Night”, the Kavalry attacked the homes of 40 police officers working for the Tulsa Police Department. Of those who survived, only two stayed with the force: Detective Angela Abar and Police Chief Judd Crawford. As the police force was rebuilt, laws were passed that required police to not disclose their profession and to protect their identities while on the job by wearing masks, which included allowing for costumed police officers. As Crawford’s police force attempts to crack down on the Seventh Kavalry, Abar finds herself at the center of two competing plots to kidnap Doctor Manhattan, who has been working with Hooded Justice, the original masked hero and survivor of the Tulsa massacre.

Watchmen

In August 2018, it was announced that Lindelof would be adapting Alan Moore’s Watchmen as a series for HBO. He had previously been quoted as saying it was his favorite graphic novel and a huge inspiration on Lost. The series, which features an original story set after the events of the graphic novel, premiered in 2019 to critical acclaim. On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the series has a 95% “certified fresh” rating based on 112 reviews, with an average rating of 8.58/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “Bold and bristling, Watchmen isn’t always easy viewing, but by adding new layers of cultural context and a host of complex characters it expertly builds on its source material to create an impressive identity of its own.” While HBO had not confirmed a second season following the show’s broadcast, Lindelof stated that if there were, he would not likely be back for it, but instead have another producer step forward to tell another story set in this universe. Lindelof said he felt that the show was “not my story” and that “These nine episodes are sort of everything that I have to say at this point about Watchmen“. He created the first season to be a complete story.

PLOT SUMMARY

Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) lose a court case to Saban Films, who are making a new Bluntman and Chronic film, Bluntman V Chronic. They also unknowingly gave up naming rights, and can no longer call themselves “Jay and Silent Bob”.

Jay and Bob visit Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee), who tells them about the Bluntman and Chronic reboot, directed by Kevin Smith. Largely completed, but a major scene is to be shot at the annual fan convention “Chronic-Con” in Hollywood. They have three days to get to Los Angeles to stop film completion and win back their identities.

Departing for California, they first arrive in Chicago, where Jay sees his ex Justice (Shannon Elizabeth) is a local weatherperson. Jay and Bob visit Justice, who tells Jay he left her heartbroken by never visiting her in jail. She has since married Reggie (Rosario Dawson) and given birth to their love child, Millennium “Milly” Faulken (Harley Quinn Smith). Introducing Jay to their daughter and her best friend Sopapilla (Treshelle Edmond), but urges him to never tell her who he is.

Justice leaves for vacation, and Milly forces Jay to take her and Sopapilla to Hollywood with them. Drugging Jay and Bob with a strong edible, they wake up on a highway in New Orleans, where they meet Milly’s two other friends, Jihad (Aparna Brielle) and Shan Yu (Alice Wen). Saying they want to go to Chronic-Con as Shan Yu is a huge fan of the first film and it is her dream to attend. Stealing a van, they drive to California. Milly blames her bad behavior on never knowing her dad.

Jay and Bob are abandoned by the group and set off in search of the van. They find it in a vacant area, where the Ku Klux Klan have kidnapped the girls and are having a rally. Bob steals a klan hood and passes himself off as the new Grand Dragon to distract them while Jay rescues the girls. They throw a portable toilet at the Klansmen and flee.

Making it to Chronic-Con, they sneak in. Jay and Bob plan to ruin the shoot, while the girls want to be extras to fulfill Shan Yu’s dream. Agreeing to part ways, Jay hugs Milly and lets her know he is proud.

After attempting to sneak past a familiar security guard (Diedrich Bader), Jay and Bob are pursued throughout the con. They hide in an empty panel room where they are met by Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck), who has just finished recording a podcast with Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams). Holden donated his sperm to Alyssa and her wife (Virginia Smith) so they have a child, whom he helps co-parent. Holden tells Jay that fatherhood gave him a new purpose. This inspires Jay to abort the mission and be a father to Milly. Holden gives them VIP badges, which grants him and the girls access to the panel with Kevin Smith.

Noticing that Bob bears a resemblance to Smith, Milly sneaks backstage and knocks out Smith, giving Smith’s clothes to Bob as a disguise. They bring Milly and Shan Yu on stage to film the scene, but Shan Yu realizes, knocks Bob unconscious, bringing out the real Kevin Smith. Shan Yu reveals herself to be a Russian spy, bent on destroying American pop culture conventions. Jay tells Milly he is her father. Bob regains consciousness outside and puts on a large metal “Iron Bob” suit that was to be used in the filming of the scene. Controlling the suit, Bob incites a riot at the panel and disarms Shan Yu and her henchmen.

After getting home, Jay shows Milly the Quick Stop and tells her the stories of his and Bob’s adventures, including meeting Justice. Dante Hicks (Brian O’Halloran) arrives to open Quick Stop and bemoans the fact that the steel shutters are once again jammed closed.

In a post-credits scene, Jay tells Milly that for the past twenty-five years, he and Bob have been pranking Dante by jamming gum in the locks.

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL (2019)


 

Men in Black: International (stylized as MIB: International in promotional material) is a 2019 American science fiction action comedy film directed by F. Gary Gray and written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. It is the fourth installment of the Men in Black film series, and the first one to not feature Will Smith as the main actor. It is loosely based on the Malibu/Marvel comic book series of the same name by Lowell Cunningham. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rebecca Ferguson, Rafe Spall, Laurent and Larry Bourgeois, and Liam Neeson. Emma Thompson reprises her role from the third film, while Tim Blaney returns to voice Frank the Pug from the first two installments.

Talks of a fourth Men in Black film began after the release of Men in Black 3 in 2012. In February 2018, Hemsworth signed on to lead a spin-off while Gray was hired to direct, and Thompson joined the cast the following month. Filming took place in New York City, Morocco, Italy, and London from July to October 2018.

Men in Black: International was theatrically released in the United States on June 14, 2019, by Sony Pictures Releasing, under its Columbia Pictures label. The film was a box office disappointment and received generally negative reviews, who criticized the “lackluster action and forgettable plot” and considered it to be the worst of the series, although the chemistry between Hemsworth and Thompson was praised.

Men in Black: International (2019) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 1996 Brooklyn, Molly Wright witnesses her parents being neuralyzed by agents of Men in Black while she helps an alien escape, before being neuralized herself to no effect. Twenty-three years later, rejected from government agencies due to her “delusions” regarding alien life, Molly tracks down an alien landing and follows MIB agents to their headquarters in New York City. Caught entering the agency, Molly makes an impression on Agent O after revealing she had bypassed neuralization, arguing that her obsessive search for them makes her ‘perfect’ for the job and has no life outside her search for the agency. She is awarded probationary agent status as “Agent M” and assigned to the organization’s London branch.

There, M meets High T, head of the London branch, and Agent H. M learns that H and High T fought off an invasion of the Hive – a parasitic race who invade planets by merging with the DNA of the conquered species – at the Eiffel Tower in 2016, using a wormhole included in the original migration to Earth; H has since become unconcerned with his duties and only keeping his job due to High T covering for him. M arranges for herself to be assigned to assist H in his meeting with Vungus the Ugly, his close friend and alien royalty. During their night out with Vungus, they are accosted by mysterious alien twins able to manifest as pure energy. They fatally injure Vungus, who gives M a strange crystal before he dies, claiming that H has changed since they last met and cannot be trusted. M points out that few people knew Vungus’ location, and he was likely betrayed by one of the agents present when High T assigned H to guard him. Nervous at the possibility of a traitor within MiB, High T assigns Agents C and M to conduct an investigation while H is demoted to desk duty, with evidence suggesting that the twins had DNA traces of the Hive.

H convinces M to join him in following a lead to Marrakesh, where they recover “Pawny”, the last survivor of a small group of aliens attacked by the Twins. Pawny pledges loyalty to M, and they are trapped by MiB agents coordinated by C, who recovered video footage of Vungus passing the crystal to M and believes she is the traitor. With the aid of alien contacts Nasr and Bassam, H escapes with M and Pawny on a rocket-powered bike, and they learn that Vungus’ crystal is a weapon powered by a compressed blue giant. As they repair the damaged bike, Bassam steals the weapon and takes it to Riza Stavros, an alien arms dealer and H’s ex-girlfriend. Travelling to Riza’s island fortress, the trio attempts to infiltrate the base, but are caught by Riza and her bodyguard Luca Brasi. Luca, the alien M rescued as a child, returns the favour by allowing them to leave with the weapon while he keeps Riza contained. The three are cornered by the Twins, who are killed by High T and a group of agents.

Although the case appears concluded, H and M review the evidence and realize that the Twins’ phrases suggest they required the weapon to use against the Hive, especially when the only evidence of Hive DNA was provided by High T. They discover High T has deleted the case file and not sent the weapon to evidence, and has gone to the Eiffel Tower with the weapon. C also realizes High T’s deception, and allows H and M to follow High T to the Eiffel Tower. As they travel to the reopened wormhole, M’s questioning of H’s memory of the Hive’s defeat reveals he was neuralyzed when the Hive converted High T into one of their own. The High T/Hive hybrid activates a wormhole to draw the Hive to Earth, but H draws out High T’s true personality long enough for M to use the weapon at full capacity to destroy High T and the Hive infestation trying to reach Earth.

With the truth of High T’s conversion exposed, Agent O joins H and M in Paris, where she grants M full agent status and appoints H probationary head of MiB’s London branch.

Dark Phoenix (2019) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

DARK PHOENIX (2019)


 

Dark Phoenix (also marketed and later released on home media as X-Men: Dark Phoenix) is a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics X-Men characters. It is a sequel to 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, the seventh and final mainline installment in the X-Men film series, and the twelfth installment overall. It was written, co-produced, and directed by Simon Kinberg (in his feature directorial debut) and stars an ensemble cast featuring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, and Jessica Chastain. Dark Phoenix tells the origin story of Jean Grey’s transformation into the Phoenix, which is triggered by a cosmic force that enhances her psychic abilities. It follows Jean’s struggle to avoid hurting the people she loves when the force unleashes her repressed trauma that causes her to become emotionally unstable and unable to control her powers.

After X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) erased the events of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) from the series’ timeline, Kinberg expressed interest in a new adaptation of Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s “The Dark Phoenix Saga” in a future film that would be more faithful than his previous attempt with The Last Stand, which was met with a mixed reception, with even Kinberg and co-writer Zak Penn ultimately unimpressed with the final product. The new adaptation was confirmed as a follow-up to Apocalypse in 2016. Kinberg signed on as director in June 2017, with the majority of the cast set to return from Apocalypse. Filming began later that month in Montreal and was completed in October 2017; the entire third act was reshot in late 2018 following poor test screenings. The film was dedicated to the memory of X-Men co-creator Stan Lee, who died on November 12, 2018.

Dark Phoenix was theatrically released in the United States on June 7, 2019, produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is the lowest-grossing installment in the main series, and the second-lowest grossing X-Men film behind The New Mutants (2020), which was released in theatres during the COVID-19 pandemic. It grossed $252 million worldwide on a $200 million production budget, and Deadline Hollywood estimated the film lost $133 million due to its high marketing and distribution costs. It received mixed reviews from critics.

Dark Phoenix (2019) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 1975, eight-year-old Jean Grey is involved in a car crash which seemingly kills both her parents, leaving her an orphan. Professor Charles Xavier takes her to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, where he promises to teach Grey to use her gifts for good.

In 1992, during the first mission of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, the shuttle is critically damaged by solar flare-like energy. The president calls upon the X-Men to save the astronauts, and Jean is struck by the energy. Miraculously, she survives the blast and absorbs the rays, saving her team’s aircraft. Her psychic powers are greatly amplified, but her emotional state begins to deteriorate, leading Raven Darkhölme to scold Xavier, claiming he puts the team in unnecessary danger. As she becomes increasingly stressed, Jean’s powers become harder to control. She accidentally unleashes her power on mutants celebrating at Xavier’s school.

Xavier reveals to the rest of the X-Men that he placed mental blocks in Jean’s mind to suppress her trauma. Raven is shocked at Charles’ revelation. Meanwhile, the blocks in Jean’s mind are destroyed by her enhanced power and her childhood trauma returns. She travels to her hometown after seeing visions of her father.

Jean finds her father alive; he had survived the car crash and forsaken her. She recovers complete memory of the accident and realizes that, unable to control her powers at the time, she had accidentally rendered her mother unconscious at the wheel with telepathy, causing the crash and killing her. This realization causes Jean’s powers to spiral further out of control. The X-Men arrive and, after a brief skirmish in which Peter Maximoff is injured, Xavier freezes everyone to allow Raven time to persuade Jean to come home. Jean lashes out against Raven, accidentally killing her, and flees, while Hank McCoy weeps over Raven’s body.

Hank confronts Charles, considering him responsible for Raven’s death. Jean travels to the island of Genosha, a mutant refuge run by Erik Lehnsherr. She asks for help in controlling her rage, and he initially agrees. U.S. military helicopters land on the island demanding Jean’s surrender. Jean attacks them, but Erik stops her and angrily banishes her, refusing to help.

Jean is found by Vuk, the leader of a shape-shifting alien race known as the D’Bari, who assumes human form. Vuk explains that the cosmic force she absorbed had wiped out the D’Bari home planet and consumed everything in its path until it was drawn to Jean. She offers to help Jean learn to use the force safely.

Hank leaves Xavier’s school and allies with Erik and his faction of mutants in an attempt to kill Jean in New York City. Learning of Erik’s plan, Kurt Wagner teleports the X-Men to New York to save her. While the two factions battle, Erik confronts Jean, and is defeated by her amplified powers. Xavier arrives, and convinces her to read his memories, which helps her former personality resurface. Feeling remorseful, she offers to let Vuk take the force from her. While the transfer takes place, Charles realizes that it will kill Jean and that Vuk intends to use the force to conquer Earth. Scott Summers blasts Vuk away with his optic beam, and Jean loses consciousness. U.S. government troops arrive and subdue both mutant factions.

All of the mutants are placed on a train headed towards a containment facility. Vuk and her D’Bari forces attack the train. When the D’Bari overpowers the soldiers, one frees the mutants from their restraints. Charles and Scott convince Hank, Erik, and his allies that Jean is still inherently good and not beyond help. Now united to protect Jean, the mutants deal with most of the D’Bari attackers before Vuk arrives and heads for Jean, defeating each mutant who attempts to stop her.

Charles confers with Jean within his mind, and she forgives him for his errors, understanding that he did what he did out of love and that the X-Men became her real family when her father abandoned her. Jean awakens, saving the mutants from Vuk’s attack and an ensuing train wreck. She then disintegrates the remaining D’Bari. Vuk once again attempts to drain the force from Jean, but Jean grabs hold of Vuk and flies into outer space. She unleashes all of her power and kills Vuk, but the strain causes her to vanish in a burst of energy in the form of a phoenix.

In the aftermath of the incident, Xavier’s school is renamed the “Jean Grey School for Gifted Youngsters”. Charles retires as dean, and Hank takes his place. In Paris, Charles is surprised at a café by Erik, who invites Charles for a game of chess. As they begin, a flaming phoenix appears high in the sky, revealing to be Jean, who survived as she flies away in the sky.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Five years after the existence of the “Titans” was revealed to the world, Dr. Emma Russell, a paleobiologist working for the Titan-studying organization Monarch, and her daughter Madison witness the birth of a larva called Mothra. Emma calms Mothra using the “Orca,” a device that can emit frequencies to attract or alter Titan behavior. A group of eco-terrorists, led by former British Army Colonel Alan Jonah, attacks the base and abducts Emma and Madison, while Mothra flees and pupates under a nearby waterfall.

Monarch scientists Dr. Ishirō Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham approach former employee Dr. Mark Russell, Emma’s ex-husband and Madison’s father, to help track them down. Mark is reluctant at first due to his hatred toward Godzilla, whom he blames for the death of his son during the events in San Francisco, but eventually agrees. The Monarch team follows Godzilla to Antarctica, where Jonah plans to free a three-headed Titan codenamed “Monster Zero”. Emma frees and awakens Monster Zero, who battles Godzilla, devours Graham and escapes. The team later realizes that Emma is working with the terrorists. From a Monarch bunker in Boston, Emma contacts Monarch and argues that the Titans must be awakened in order to heal the Earth from the damages that humans have caused.

Emma awakens Rodan in Mexico, and the Monarch team lure it towards Monster Zero. After Rodan is defeated, Godzilla ambushes Monster Zero and severs his left head. During the fight, the U.S. Navy launches a prototype weapon called the “Oxygen Destroyer”, seemingly killing Godzilla. Unaffected, Monster Zero regrows his lost head and awakens all the other dormant Titans around the world, with Rodan submitting to his rule. As a result, Madison disowns Emma.

Through mythological texts, Dr. Ilene Chen discovers that Monster Zero is King Ghidorah, a prehistoric alien seeking to transform the Earth. Mothra emerges from her cocoon and flies to Monarch’s Bermuda base to communicate with Godzilla, who is recuperating in an ancient underwater city. Via submarine, the team locates Godzilla’s lair, which is highly radioactive. They deduce it will take too long for Godzilla to heal on his own and decide to detonate a nuclear warhead to speed up the process. Serizawa sacrifices himself by manually detonating the warhead, reviving Godzilla and increasing his power.

Emma realizes the destruction Ghidorah and the other Titans will bring to the world is far worse than anything humans could inflict, but Jonah ignores her pleas to stop. Madison overhears this and steals the Orca. Arriving at Fenway Park, Madison broadcasts a frequency that calms the Titans but unwittingly attracts them all to her location. Ghidorah lands in Boston to destroy the Orca. Godzilla arrives to engage him in battle with Monarch personnel’s assistance. Mark leads a team to rescue Madison and escape the city after learning Godzilla’s radiation levels are increasing and will lead to a thermonuclear explosion. Mothra arrives to help Godzilla but is intercepted by Rodan; she defeats him but is injured in the process.

Ghidorah overpowers Godzilla and prepares to kill him, but Mothra sacrifices herself and transfers her energy to Godzilla. Mark, Emma, and Madison are reunited and reactivate the Orca to lure Ghidorah away from Godzilla. Emma sacrifices herself to lead Ghidorah away, giving Mark, Madison, and the Monarch team time to escape. Godzilla enters a newly empowered state and defeats Ghidorah. Rodan and the other Titans converge on Godzilla and bow to him.

During the ending credits, news clippings and Monarch files show that the Titans are helping to heal the planet, a suspected second Mothra egg has been discovered, and some of the Titans are converging on Skull Island. Ancient cave paintings of Godzilla and Kong in battle are shown. In a post-credits scene, Jonah and his forces purchase Ghidorah’s severed left head in Mexico.

Game of Thrones – Season 8 (2019) [HBO] – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

For the fans.

GAME OF THRONES (2011)
[HBO]


 

Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss for HBO. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, a series of fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, the first of which is A Game of Thrones. The show was shot in the United Kingdom, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, and Spain. It premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011, and concluded on May 19, 2019, with 73 episodes broadcast over eight seasons.

Set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, Game of Thrones has a large ensemble cast and follows several story arcs throughout the course of the show. The first major arc concerns the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros through a web of political conflicts among the noble families either vying to claim the throne or fighting for independence from whoever sits on it. A second focuses on the last descendant of the realm’s deposed ruling dynasty, who has been exiled to Essos and is plotting to return and reclaim the throne. The third follows the Night’s Watch, a military order defending the realm against threats from beyond Westeros’s northern border.

Game of Thrones attracted a record viewership on HBO and has a broad, active, and international fan base. Critics have praised the series for its acting, complex characters, story, scope, and production values, although its frequent use of nudity and violence (including sexual violence) has been subject to criticism. The final season received significant critical backlash for its reduced length and creative decisions, with many considering it a disappointing conclusion. The series received 59 Primetime Emmy Awards, the most by a drama series, including Outstanding Drama Series in 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019. Its other awards and nominations include three Hugo Awards for Best Dramatic Presentation, a Peabody Award, and five nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama. Many critics and publications have named the show as one of the best television series of all time.

PREMISE

Game of Thrones is roughly based on the storylines of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R. R. Martin, set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and the continent of Essos. The series follows several simultaneous plot lines. The first story arc follows a war of succession among competing claimants for control of the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, with other noble families fighting for independence from the throne. The second concerns the exiled scion’s actions to reclaim the throne; the third chronicles the threat of the impending winter, as well as the legendary creatures and fierce peoples of the North. Showrunner David Benioff jokingly suggested “The Sopranos in Middle-earth” as Game of Thrones‘s tagline, referring to its intrigue-filled plot and dark tone in a fantasy setting of magic and dragons.

SEASON 8 (2019)


 

The eighth and final season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones, produced by HBO, premiered on April 14, 2019, and concluded on May 19, 2019. Unlike the first six seasons, which consisted of ten episodes each, and the seventh season, which consisted of seven episodes, the eighth season consists of only six episodes.

The final season depicts the culmination of the series’ two primary conflicts: the Great War against the Army of the Dead, and the Last War for control of the Iron Throne. In the first half of the season, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and many of the main characters converge at Winterfell to face the Dead. During the battle, Bran lures the Night King into the open where Arya destroys him; the army of White Walkers and wights crumble. Meanwhile, Cersei Lannister remains in King’s Landing and strengthens her forces to set traps for a weakened Daenerys. The second half of the season resumes the war for the throne as Daenerys suffers losses until she finally assaults King’s Landing upon Drogon, her last dragon. She defeats Cersei’s forces, burns the city and kills Cersei and her brother Jaime. Daenerys vows to “liberate” the whole world as she has liberated the capital of Westeros. Unable to sway her from her destructive path, an agonized Jon kills her. Drogon flies away with her body, but not before destroying the Iron Throne with dragonfire. The leaders of Westeros choose Bran Stark as King, who grants the North independence and appoints Tyrion his Hand. Sansa Stark is crowned Queen in the North. Arya sails west, and Jon leads the Wildlings north of the Wall.

The season was filmed from October 2017 to July 2018 and largely consists of original content not found in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, while also incorporating material that Martin has revealed to showrunners about the upcoming novels in the series, The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring. The season was adapted for television by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

The season was met with mixed reviews from critics, in contrast to the largely critical acclaim of previous seasons, and is the lowest-rated of the series on the website Rotten Tomatoes. While the performances, production values and music score were praised, criticism was mainly directed at the shorter runtime of the season as well as numerous creative decisions made by the showrunners regarding the plot and character arcs; many commentators deemed it to be a disappointing conclusion to the series.

The season received 32 nominations at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards, the most for a single season of television in history. It won twelve, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for Peter Dinklage.

(Co-Creator, Game of Thrones)


 

David Friedman ( born September 25, 1970), known professionally as David Benioff), is an American writer, director and producer. Along with his fellow collaborator D. B. Weiss, he is best known as co-creator, showrunner, and writer of Game of Thrones (2011–2019), the HBO adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s series of books A Song of Ice and Fire. He is also known for writing 25th Hour (2002), Troy (2004), City of Thieves (2008) and co-writing X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009).

Career

In 2006, Benioff became interested in adapting George R.R. Martin’s novel series A Song of Ice and Fire, and began working with Weiss on a proposed television series, Game of Thrones. The pilot, “Winter Is Coming”, was put into development by HBO in 2007 and the series greenlit in 2010. Benioff and Weiss acted as the show’s executive producers, showrunners, and writers. It began airing on HBO in 2011. Benioff and Weiss had previously worked together on a script for a horror film titled The Headmaster, but it was never made.

Towards the end of the final season of Game of Thrones, a petition to HBO was started on Change.org. It called Benioff and Weiss “woefully incompetent writers” and demanded “competent writers” to remake the eighth season of Game of Thrones in a manner “that makes sense”. The petition eventually amassed over 1.5 million signatures. In the Chicago Sun Times, Richard Roeper, wrote that the backlash to the eighth season was so great that he doubted he had “ever seen the level of fan (and to a lesser degree, critical) vitriol leveled at” Game of Thrones.

CAPTAIN MARVEL (2019)


 

Captain Marvel is a 2019 American superhero film based on Marvel Comics featuring the character Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film was written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet also contributing to the screenplay. Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. Set in 1995, the story follows Danvers as she becomes Captain Marvel after Earth is caught in the center of a galactic conflict between two alien civilizations.

Development of the film began by May 2013. It was officially announced in October 2014 as Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero film. Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve were hired to write the film the following April after submitting separate takes on the character, and borrowed elements from Roy Thomas’ 1971 “Kree–Skrull War” comic book storyline. Larson was announced as Danvers at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, with Boden and Fleck hired to direct in April 2017. Robertson-Dworet was soon hired to re-write the script, with the rest of the cast added by the start of filming. Location shooting began in January 2018, with principal photography starting that March in California and concluding in Louisiana in July 2018. Several actors reprise their roles from previous MCU films in Captain Marvel, including Jackson and Gregg who were digitally de-aged in post-production to reflect the film’s 1990s setting.

Captain Marvel premiered in London on February 27, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on March 8, as part of Phase Three of the MCU. The film grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide, making it the first female-led superhero film to pass the billion-dollar mark. It became the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2019 and was the 23rd-highest-grossing film of all time during its theatrical run. The film received praise for the performances of the cast, particularly that of Larson. A sequel, The Marvels, is scheduled for release on November 11, 2022.

Captain Marvel (2019) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 1995, on the Kree Empire’s capital planet of Hala, Starforce member Vers suffers from amnesia and recurring nightmares involving an older woman. Yon-Rogg, her mentor and commander, trains Vers to control her abilities, while the Supreme Intelligence, the artificial intelligence that rules the Kree, urges her to keep her emotions in check.

During a mission to rescue an undercover operative infiltrating a group of Skrulls, alien shapeshifters with whom the Kree are at war, Vers is captured by Skrull commander Talos. A probe of Vers’ memories leads them to Earth. Vers escapes and crash-lands in Los Angeles. Her presence attracts S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury and Phil Coulson, whose investigation is interrupted by a Skrull attack. Vers recovers a crystal containing her extracted memories in the ensuing chase while Fury kills a Skrull impersonating Coulson.

Talos, disguised as Fury’s boss Keller, orders Fury to work with Vers and keep tabs on her. Using her extracted memories, Vers and Fury go to the Project Pegasus installation at a U.S. Air Force base. They discover that Vers was a pilot presumed to have died in 1989 while testing an experimental light-speed engine designed by Dr. Wendy Lawson, whom Vers recognizes as the woman from her nightmares. Fury informs S.H.I.E.L.D. of their location and a team arrives. Fury realizes that Keller is Talos and helps Vers escape in a jet with Lawson’s stowaway cat Goose.

They fly to Louisiana to meet former pilot Maria Rambeau, the last person to see Vers and Lawson alive. Rambeau and her daughter Monica reveal that Vers is Carol Danvers, who was once like family to them. Talos, arriving unarmed, explains that the Skrulls are refugees searching for a new home and that Lawson was Mar-Vell, a renegade Kree scientist helping them. Talos plays a recovered blackbox recording from Lawson’s jet, prompting Danvers to remember the crash: Yon-Rogg killed Mar-Vell to prevent her from destroying the engine before the Kree could recover it. Destroying the engine herself, Danvers absorbed the energy from the ensuing explosion, gaining powers but losing her memory.

Danvers, Talos, Fury, and Rambeau locate Lawson’s cloaked laboratory orbiting Earth, where Lawson hid several Skrulls, including Talos’ family, and the Tesseract, the power source of Lawson’s engine. There, Danvers is captured by Starforce and interfaces with the Supreme Intelligence. Danvers removes the Kree implant that suppressed her powers during their encounter, allowing her to reach her full potential. In the subsequent battle, Fury retrieves Goose, who is revealed to be an alien Flerken. Goose swallows the Tesseract and scratches Fury, blinding his left eye. Danvers destroys a Kree bomber, forcing Kree officer Ronan the Accuser and his squadron to retreat.

Danvers then overpowers Yon-Rogg on Earth and sends him back to Hala with a warning to the Supreme Intelligence. Danvers departs to help the Skrulls find a new homeworld, leaving Fury a modified pager to contact her in an emergency. Meanwhile, Fury drafts an initiative to locate heroes like Danvers, naming it after her Air Force call sign, “Avenger”. In a mid-credits scene, set in 2018, the activated pager is being monitored by the Avengers when Danvers appears. In a post-credits scene, Goose climbs onto Fury’s desk and regurgitates the Tesseract.

Sherwood is an American-Irish-New Zealander computer animated science fiction streaming television series created by Diana Manson and Megan Laughton that premiered on March 6, 2019, on YouTube Premium. It is a new telling of the Robin Hood legend. Some reviewers have noted the focus on socioeconomic class, as Robin lives among “the impoverished 99%,” leading rebels who will overthrow the Sheriff, who lives in an Upper City housing “the wealthy citizens of Sherwood.” Others also noted the focus on class difference, with Robin and her comrades trying to “overcome inequality and fight for justice.” Apart from this, others said the series has a cyberpunk feeling to it.

The show had a world premiere in Sydney, Australia, in March 2019. In April 2020, Sherwood was one of the originals that Google decided to make freely available in light of the pandemic.

Bumblebee (2018) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

On the planet Cybertron, the Autobot resistance, led by Optimus Prime, is on the verge of losing the civil war against the Decepticons, and prepares to evacuate the planet. A Decepticon force, led by Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave, intercepts them during the evacuation, and Optimus sends Autobot scout B-127 to Earth in an escape pod, in order to set up a base of operations where the Autobots can regroup. B-127 reaches Earth and crash-lands in California, disrupting a training exercise by Sector 7, a secret government agency monitoring extraterrestrial activity on Earth.

Colonel Jack Burns presumes B-127 to be hostile and orders his men to attack. B-127 scans a Willys MB jeep and flees to a mine, where he is ambushed by Decepticon Blitzwing. When B-127 refuses to reveal Optimus’s whereabouts, Blitzwing tears out his voice box and damages his memory core; yet B-127 destroys Blitzwing with one of his own missiles. B-127 scans a nearby 1967 yellow Volkswagen Beetle before collapsing from his injuries.

In 1987, teenager Charlene “Charlie” Watson is traumatized by the death of her father, and resentful of her mother Sally’s new boyfriend Ronald. Charlie finds a yellow Volkswagen Beetle in a scrapyard belonging to Hank, who gives it to her as an 18th-birthday present. When trying to start it, Charlie unknowingly activates a homing signal that is detected by Decepticons Shatter and Dropkick as they interrogate and slice down Cliffjumper on one of Saturn’s moons. The Decepticons head to Earth, and acquire Earth vehicle forms. They meet Sector 7, pretending to be peacekeepers, and persuade them to help capture B-127, despite Burns’ objections.

While Charlie attempts to fix the Beetle, it transforms into B-127, whom she befriends and designates “Bumblebee”. She then unknowingly unlocks a message from Optimus urging Bumblebee to defend Earth, which restores some of his memories. They are discovered by Charlie’s neighbor Memo, who agrees to protect their secret, while Bumblebee learns to use the radio to communicate. Left alone, Bumblebee unintentionally destroys Charlie’s home and causes an energy spike that attracts Sector 7’s attention. When Sally blames Charlie for the havoc, Charlie finally expresses her pain over her father’s death and leaves with Bumblebee and Memo, only to be intercepted by Sector 7 and the Decepticons. Bumblebee is captured while Charlie and Memo are returned home.

Charlie convinces her brother Otis to cover for her and Memo as they follow Burns to the Sector 7 outpost where Bumblebee is being held. Shatter and Dropkick activate the message from Optimus, learning that the Autobots are coming to Earth. They torture and leave Bumblebee for dead after revealing their plan to bring the rest of the Decepticons to Earth. After alerting Burns to the truth about the Decepticons, Dr. Powell is killed by Dropkick.

Charlie electroshocks Bumblebee back to life, restoring his memories, causing him to fend off Burns’ obstruction. After evading the military with the help of Memo and her family, Charlie and Bumblebee pursue the Decepticons who are seeking to contact Cybertron using a radio tower at a nearby harbor. Shatter shoots down Burns’ helicopter when he also tries to intervene, but he is saved by Bumblebee. Bumblebee binds Dropkick with a chain, ripping him apart. Charlie deactivates the Decepticon beacon, only to be pursued by Shatter. Bumblebee destroys a dam wall, triggering a flood that causes a cargo ship to crush and destroy Shatter. Bumblebee and Charlie escape the army and arrive on a cliff overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, where Charlie, realizing that Bumblebee has a greater purpose, says goodbye. Bumblebee takes on a new 1977 Chevrolet Camaro form and drives off, and Charlie reunites with her family and Memo.

Bumblebee reunites with Optimus, who praises Bumblebee for keeping Earth safe as they watch more Autobots arrive through Earth’s atmosphere. Meanwhile, Charlie finishes repairing the Corvette she and her father were working on, and takes the classic vehicle for a drive.

The first season of the show received poor or mixed reviews, but these improved significantly in later seasons following cast changes and a greater emphasis on comedy. Recent seasons have received consistently positive reviews from critics, who praised the action, comedy, and acting.

Series Overview

In season one, Time Master Rip Hunter goes rogue after the immortal tyrant Vandal Savage conquered Earth and killed his wife and son. Meanwhile, the organization he swore himself to, turns on him. Intending to save humanity and avenge his family, Rip recruits a team of superheroes and villains, consisting of Ray Palmer / the Atom, Sara Lance / White Canary, Martin Stein and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson / Firestorm, Kendra Saunders / Hawkgirl, Carter Hall / Hawkman, Leonard Snart / Captain Cold, and Mick Rory / Heat Wave, who venture through time on a stolen time ship, the Waverider, to stop Savage’s rise to power. Meanwhile, the Time Masters send Chronos after Rip for interfering with the timeline and in the final episodes it turns out that the Time Masters were working with Savage all along. Snart also sacrifices himself to destroy the Time Masters.

In season two, following Snart’s sacrifice while defeating the Time Masters, Rip and his recruits, now called “Legends”, continue protecting the timeline from aberrations. They are joined by historian Nate Heywood / Citizen Steel, who later gains the ability to turn to steel at will, and Justice Society of America member Amaya Jiwe / Vixen, who joins the Legends to pursue Eobard Thawne / Reverse-Flash, a speedster and Barry Allen’s archenemy. After learning of the Spear of Destiny, an ancient artifact that can rewrite reality, Thawne recruits Damien Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, as well as a time-displaced Snart, from different points in time to form the Legion of Doom. However, after retrieving the Spear, Sara successfully defeats Thawne and restores the Legion to their proper times.

In season three, Rip forms the Time Bureau to replace the Time Masters and fires the Legends for causing anachronisms. When Bureau agent Ava Sharpe is captured, Rip is forced to take the Legends out of retirement. Elsewhere, the demonic entity Mallus forms a cult led by Darhk’s daughter Nora, pursuing the six totems of Zambesi, two of which are wielded by Amaya and near-future hacktivist Zari Tomaz. The Legends, assisted by speedster Wally West, retrieve all the totems and use them to successfully defeat Mallus.

In season four, Sara is promoted to captain of the Waverider after Rip’s sacrifice during the Legends’ fight against Mallus. Occult detective John Constantine informs the Legends that Mallus was not the only demon that escaped and that “magical fugitives” are on the loose. John joins the team, along with shapeshifter Charlie and Mona Wu, who is host to a Kaupe, to stop them. Ava and Sara and Ray and Nora begin relationships, and Nora becomes a fairy godmother. The Legends come into conflict with the demon Neron, who was banished by John during a show at Heyworld intended to help humans be less afraid of the magical creatures. In addition, Neron manipulates Time Bureau member Gary Green into working for him. Following Neron’s defeat, Zari’s timeline changes and she is replaced as a Legend and wielder of the Air Totem by her brother Behrad.

In season five, Astra Logue, whom John accidentally sent to Hell in a botched exorcism, has resurrected evil individuals from history known as “Encores”. Meanwhile, Charlie is revealed to be one of the three Fates who is being pursued by her sisters to recover the Loom of Fate. Mona, Ray, Nora, and Charlie leave the Legends, who defeat the Fates and Encores. In the final scene, Sara is captured by a mysterious beam.

In season six, Sara is abducted by aliens hired by Bishop who has plans to create the perfect warrior by copying her DNA and memories and combining it with other aliens upon claiming that he has seen the end of the human race. While attempting to escape her imprisonment, Sara accidentally releases a menagerie of aliens throughout the timeline. To find Sara, the Legends enlist Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz, an off-the-grid recluse who can telepathically communicate with aliens following her own abduction as they repel alien invasions throughout Earth’s history. Bishop then goes after the Fountain of Imperium that would restore Constantine’s powers only to double-cross him and destroy it so that the Zagurons would invade Earth, but the Legends revive it and defeat Bishop. In the final scene, a duplicate Waverider destroys the original and stranding the Legends in 1925 Texas.

Doctor Who – Series 11+ (2018) [BBC] – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

For the Doctor.

DOCTOR WHO (2018+)
[BBC]


 

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme broadcast by BBC One since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called the Doctor, an extraterrestrial being who appears to be human. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. With various companions, the Doctor combats foes, works to save civilisations and helps people in need.

Beginning with William Hartnell, thirteen actors have headlined the series as the Doctor, and in 2017 Jodie Whittaker became the first woman to play the role. The transition from one actor to another is written into the plot of the show with the concept of regeneration into a new incarnation, a plot device in which a Time Lord “transforms” into a new body when the current one is too badly harmed to heal normally. Each actor’s portrayal is unique, but all represent stages in the life of the same character, and together, they form a single lifetime with a single narrative. The time-travelling feature of the plot means that different incarnations of the Doctor occasionally meet.

History

In January 2016, Moffat announced that he would step down after the 2017 finale, to be replaced by Chris Chibnall in 2018. The tenth series debuted in April 2017, with a Christmas special preceding it in 2016. Jodie Whittaker was announced as the first female Doctor, and has appeared in two series and is scheduled to reprise her role in a third, shorter series due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both Whittaker and Chibnall announced that they would depart the show after a series of 2022 specials following the 13th series. Davies will return as showrunner for the show’s 14th series, twelve years after he had left the show previously, at which point Bad Wolf will take over production of the series. Bad Wolf’s involvement will see Gardner return to the series alongside Davies, as well as Jane Tranter, who recommissioned the series in 2005.

SERIES 11 (2018) – THE THIRTEENTH DOCTOR


 

The eleventh series of the British science fiction television programme Doctor Who premiered on 7 October 2018 and concluded on 9 December 2018. The series is the first to be led by Chris Chibnall as head writer and executive producer, alongside executive producers Matt Strevens and Sam Hoyle, after Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin stepped down after the tenth series. This series is the eleventh to air following the programme’s revival in 2005 and is the thirty-seventh season overall. It also marks the beginning of the third production era of the revived series, following Russell T Davies’ original run from 2005–2010, and Moffat’s from 2010–2017. The eleventh series was broadcast on Sundays, a first in the programme’s history; regular episodes of the revived era were previously broadcast on Saturdays. The series was followed by a New Year’s Day special episode, “Resolution”, instead of the traditional annual Christmas Day special.

The series introduces Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, a new incarnation of the Doctor, an alien Time Lord who travels through time and space in her TARDIS, which appears to be a British police box on the outside. The series also introduces Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill as the Doctor’s newest travelling companions, Graham O’Brien, Ryan Sinclair, and Yasmin Khan, respectively. The series follows the Thirteenth Doctor as she initially searches for her lost TARDIS, inadvertently bringing Graham, Ryan, and Yasmin with her on her travels. All three later contemplate returning to their normal lives but decide to continue travelling with the Doctor. Rather than an overall story arc similar to those in previous series, each episode of the series served mostly as a standalone story.

CHRIS CHIBNALL
(Showrunner, Doctor Who Series 11+)


 

Christopher Antony Chibnall (born 21 March 1970) is a British television writer and producer, best known as the creator and writer of the award-winning ITV mystery-crime drama Broadchurch and as a showrunner of the long-running BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. Chibnall wrote five episodes of the series under previous showrunners Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat, and was also the head writer for the first two series of the spinoff Torchwood.

Doctor Who

Chibnall is a long-time fan of Doctor Who, and appeared on the BBC discussion programme Open Air in 1986 as a representative of the Doctor Who Appreciation Society, criticising The Trial of a Time Lord (1986), especially the Terror of the Vervoids segment.

In 2005, Chibnall was appointed head writer and co-producer of science-fiction drama Torchwood. The series, a spin-off from Doctor Who, premiered on BBC Three in October 2006 to a then record-breaking audience for a non-sport programme digital channel broadcast in the UK. The programme went on to win “Best New Drama” at the 2007 TV Quick Awards and “Best Drama Series” at the BAFTA Cymru 2007 awards. The series has also been nominated for both Hugo and Saturn awards. In the US, the programme has been broadcast on BBC America and HDNet, to critical acclaim. Chibnall wrote eight episodes during the first two series, including both series’ finales, and the premiere episode of series two. He worked closely with Russell T Davies across all aspects of the show’s production.

While working on Torchwood, Chibnall also penned the 2007 episode “42” for the third series of Doctor Who. He returned for the 2010 series, penning the two-part story “The Hungry Earth” / “Cold Blood”, which reintroduced the Silurians to the series. Chibnall also wrote the second and fourth episodes for the seventh series in 2012, “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” and “The Power of Three”, as well as the online/red button exclusive Pond Life. He also penned another short, P.S., but it was never filmed, and was eventually presented online in storyboard format.

In January 2016, the BBC announced that Chibnall would replace Steven Moffat as executive producer of Doctor Who and would be the head writer and executive producer, starting with the eleventh series of the revived era. Matt Strevens joined Chibnall as co-executive producer, after having also been an executive producer on An Adventure in Space and Time. When discussing whether the next Doctor would be a woman, he stated in February 2017 “Nothing is ruled out but I don’t want the casting to be a gimmick and that’s all I can say”. After Jodie Whittaker was announced as the Thirteenth Doctor in July 2017, Chibnall said, “I always knew I wanted the Thirteenth Doctor to be a woman and we’re thrilled to have secured our number one choice.”

As with the last change of showrunners, Chibnall wrote the final moments of Moffat’s last episode “Twice Upon a Time”, so as to allow him to write Whittaker’s first lines on the show. This previously happened in the 2010 special “The End of Time”, when Moffat took over for Russell T. Davies in the final moments of the episode, writing Matt Smith’s first words as the Eleventh Doctor.

On 29 July 2021, the BBC announced that Chibnall would be stepping down from his role as the showrunner of Doctor Who, and Jodie Whittaker will be leaving her role as the Thirteenth Doctor.

On 24 September 2021, the BBC announced that Davies would be returning as the showrunner of Doctor Who, following the departure of Chibnall.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP (2018)


 

Ant-Man and the Wasp is a 2018 American superhero film based on Marvel Comics featuring the characters Scott Lang / Ant-Man and Hope Pym / Wasp. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the sequel to Ant-Man (2015) and the 20th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Peyton Reed and written by the writing teams of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. It stars Rudd as Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, alongside Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, the titular pair work with Hank Pym (Douglas) to retrieve Janet van Dyne (Pfeiffer) from the Quantum Realm.

Talks for a sequel to Ant-Man began shortly after that film was released. Ant-Man and the Wasp was officially announced in October 2015, with Rudd and Lilly returning to reprise their roles. A month later, Ant-Man director Reed was officially set to return. He had joined the first film later in the process and was excited to develop this one from the beginning. He also looked forward to introducing Hope van Dyne as the Wasp in this film, and insisted on treating Lang and her as equals. Filming took place from August to November 2017, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia, as well as Metro Atlanta, San Francisco, Savannah, Georgia, and Hawaii.

Ant-Man and the Wasp had its world premiere in Hollywood on June 25, 2018, and was released in the United States on July 6, 2018, as part of Phase Three of the MCU. The film was a critical and commercial success, receiving praise for its levity, humor, and performances, particularly those of Rudd and Lilly, and grossed over $622 million worldwide. A sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, is scheduled for release in February 2023.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Two years after Scott Lang was placed under house arrest due to his involvement with the Avengers, in violation of the Sokovia Accords, Hank Pym and his daughter Hope van Dyne briefly manage to open a tunnel to the Quantum Realm. They believe Pym’s wife Janet van Dyne might be trapped there after shrinking to sub-atomic levels in 1987. When he had previously visited the quantum realm, Lang had unknowingly become quantumly entangled with Janet, and now he receives an apparent message from her.

With only days left of house arrest, Lang contacts Pym about Janet, despite the strained relationship they have because of Lang’s actions with the Avengers. Hope and Pym kidnap Lang, leaving a large ant with Lang’s ankle-monitor on as a decoy so as not to arouse the suspicions of FBI agent Jimmy Woo. Believing the message from Janet is confirmation that she is alive, the trio work to build a stable quantum tunnel so they can take a vehicle to the quantum realm and retrieve her. They arrange to buy a part needed for the tunnel from black-market dealer Sonny Burch, but Burch realizes the potential profit to be made from Pym’s research and double-crosses them. Donning the Wasp outfit, Hope fights off Burch and his men until she is attacked by a quantumly unstable masked woman. Lang tries to help fight off this “ghost”, but the woman escapes with Pym’s lab, which has been shrunk down to the size of a suitcase.

Pym reluctantly takes Hope and Lang to visit his estranged former partner Bill Foster, who gives them a way to locate the lab. After finding it, the ghost captures the trio and reveals herself to be Ava Starr. Her father, Elihas, was another of Pym’s former partners who died along with his wife during an experiment that caused her unstable state. Foster enters and reveals that Ava is dying and in constant pain as a result of her condition. They plan to cure her using Janet’s quantum energy.

Believing that this will kill Janet, Pym refuses to help them and escapes with Hope, Lang, and the lab.

Opening a stable version of the tunnel, Pym, Hope, and Lang are able to contact Janet, who gives them a precise location to find her but warns that they only have two hours before the unstable nature of the realm separates them for a century. Using a truth serum, Burch learns the trio’s location from Lang’s business partners Luis, Dave, and Kurt, and informs a contact at the FBI. Luis warns Lang, who rushes home before Woo can see that he is violating his house arrest. Pym and Hope are arrested by the FBI, allowing Ava to take the lab.

Lang is soon able to help Pym and Hope escape custody, and they find the lab. Lang and Hope distract Ava while Pym enters the quantum realm to retrieve Janet, whom he finds alive. Meanwhile, Lang and Hope are confronted by Burch and his men, and following a lengthy chase, Ava regains control of the lab, allowing her to begin taking Janet’s energy by force. Luis, Dave, and Kurt incapacitate Burch and his men so that Lang and Hope can stop Ava. Pym and Janet return safely from the quantum realm, and Janet voluntarily gives some of her energy to Ava to temporarily stabilize her.

Lang returns home once again, in time for a now-suspicious Woo to release him at the end of his house arrest. Ava and Foster go into hiding. In a mid-credits scene, Pym, Lang, Hope, and Janet plan to harvest quantum energy to help Ava remain stable. While Lang is in the quantum realm doing this, the other three turn to dust.

Ocean’s 8 (2018) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

OCEAN’S 8 (2018)


 

Ocean’s Eight (stylized onscreen as Ocean’s 8) is a 2018 American heist comedy film directed by Gary Ross and written by Ross and Olivia Milch. The film is both a continuation of and a spin-off from Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy and features an ensemble cast including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Mindy Kaling, and Helena Bonham Carter. The film follows a group of women led by Debbie Ocean, the sister of Danny Ocean, who plan a sophisticated heist at the annual Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

After the release of Ocean’s Thirteen in 2007, Soderbergh stated he had no intentions of making a fourth film, citing his desire to have the series “go out on top”. However, an all-female spin-off was announced in October 2015, and much of the cast signed on by August 2016. Filming took place from October 2016 to March 2017 around Manhattan.

Ocean’s 8 premiered at Alice Tully Hall on June 5, 2018, and was released by Warner Bros. Pictures in the United States on June 8, 2018, 11 years to the day after the release of Ocean’s Thirteen. It grossed $297 million worldwide and received generally positive reviews from critics, who particularly praised the acting ensemble.

Ocean’s 8 (2018) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

Newly paroled con artist Debbie Ocean, the late Danny Ocean’s younger sister, convinces former partner-in-crime Lou to join her in a new heist. They assemble their team: bankrupt fashion designer Rose Weil, who is in debt to the IRS; jewelry maker Amita, who is eager to move out of her mother’s house; security hacker Nine Ball; street hustler and pickpocket Constance; and profiteer Tammy, who fences stolen goods out of her suburban home.

Debbie plans to steal the Toussaint, a $150 million Cartier necklace, during the upcoming Met Gala, using film star Daphne Kluger as an unwitting accomplice. The team manipulates Daphne into hiring Rose and convinces Cartier to loan Daphne the Toussaint. They digitally scan the necklace to manufacture a worthless cubic zirconia replica. Tammy secures a job at Vogue and gains access to the gala, as well as getting Lou hired as a nutritionist for the event, while Debbie leads Daphne to invite art dealer Claude Becker, whose betrayal sent Debbie to prison, as her date. Lou confronts Debbie for planning revenge against Becker, but Debbie reassures her that it will not jeopardize their plan.

When Rose learns the Toussaint can only be unclasped by a special magnet carried by Cartier’s security detail, Nine Ball enlists her younger sister Veronica’s help in creating a duplicate. At the gala, Lou spikes Daphne’s soup, causing her to run to the women’s bathroom, where Nine Ball has created a blind spot on the museum’s security cameras. As the male Cartier guards wait outside and Daphne vomits into a toilet, Constance deftly removes the necklace from Daphne’s neck and sneaks it to Amita, who splits it into smaller pieces of jewelry. When Daphne reappears with the necklace missing, the museum is sealed and a search of the premises and guests commences. It ends, however, when Tammy “finds” the duplicate necklace. Constance slips the Toussaint pieces to the team to smuggle out, and Debbie plants a piece of it on Becker. After the heist, Daphne joins the ladies, revealing that she already knew about the robbery which she figured out by analyzing their actions. She asks for the eighth part in exchange for saving them from jail.

When the necklace is returned to Cartier, the switch is discovered, and insurance investigator John Frazier is assigned to investigate. Having crossed paths with the Oceans before, Frazier immediately suspects Debbie, but her careful presence on the gala’s video footage gives her an unbeatable alibi. Debbie tells Frazier she may know who stole the necklace. Daphne visits Becker and sends Frazier a picture of the jewel Debbie planted. To further frame Becker, Debbie hires actresses posing as elderly socialites to sell the Toussaint off piece-by-piece and deposit the money into an account in Becker’s name. The police take Becker into custody.

As the eight celebrate their success, Lou reveals the heist’s true target: while the gala was being evacuated, she and The Amazing Yen, an acrobat who worked with Danny, replaced a Metropolitan Museum of Art display of royal jewels with replicas, escaping with gems even more valuable than the Toussaint. With their shares of the score much larger than they expected, each member of the team goes their separate ways: Amita travels to Paris with a man she meets on Tinder; Rose pays off her debts and opens her own store; Constance buys a spacious loft in the city and becomes a YouTuber; Tammy expands her business in stolen goods; Nine Ball opens a pool hall; Daphne becomes a film director (and is shown directing a lookalike); Lou takes her motorcycle on a cross-country road trip; and Debbie mixes and enjoys a martini at Danny’s grave, knowing he would be proud of her.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

For Luke.

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (2017)


Star Wars: The Last Jedi (also known as Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi) is a 2017 American epic space opera film written and directed by Rian Johnson. Produced by Lucasfilm and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the second installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following The Force Awakens (2015), and the eighth episode of the nine-part “Skywalker saga”. The film’s ensemble cast includes Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and Benicio del Toro. The Last Jedi follows Rey as she seeks the aid of Luke Skywalker, in hopes of turning the tide for the Resistance in the fight against Kylo Ren and the First Order, while General Leia Organa, Finn, and Poe Dameron attempt to escape a First Order attack on the dwindling Resistance fleet. The film features the first posthumous film performance by Fisher, who died in December 2016, and the film is dedicated to her.

The Last Jedi is part of a new trilogy of films announced after Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm in October 2012. It was produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by The Force Awakens director J. J. Abrams. John Williams, composer for the previous episodic films, returned to compose the score. A number of scenes were filmed at Skellig Michael in Ireland during pre-production in September 2015, but principal photography began at Pinewood Studios in England in February 2016 and wrapped that July.

The Last Jedi premiered in Los Angeles on December 9, 2017, and was released in the United States on December 15. It grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2017 and the ninth-highest-grossing film of all time during its theatrical run. It is also the second-highest-grossing Star Wars film and turned a net profit of over $417 million. Last Jedi received four nominations at the 90th Academy Awards, including Best Original Score and Best Visual Effects, as well as two nominations at the 71st British Academy Film Awards. The film was well-received by critics for its action sequences and emotional weight. The sequel, The Rise of Skywalker, was released in December 2019.

PLOT SUMMARY

Shortly after the battle of Starkiller Base, General Leia Organa is leading the Resistance forces in evacuating their base when the First Order fleet arrives. Against Leia’s orders, Poe Dameron leads a costly counterattack that destroys a First Order dreadnought. The remaining Resistance escapes into hyperspace, but the First Order uses a device to track them, and attacks again. Kylo Ren hesitates to fire on the lead Resistance ship after sensing his mother Leia’s presence on board, but his wingmen destroy the bridge, killing most of the Resistance’s leaders. Leia is dragged into space but survives by using the Force. While Leia recovers, Vice-Admiral Holdo assumes command of the Resistance. Running low on fuel, the remaining fleet is pursued by the First Order.

On Ahch-To, Rey attempts to recruit Luke Skywalker to the Resistance. Under self-imposed exile, Luke refuses to help and says that the Jedi should end. After encouragement from R2-D2, he agrees to give Rey three lessons in the ways of the Force. Rey and Kylo begin communicating through the Force, which puzzles them both. Kylo tells Rey that Luke feared his power; Luke confesses that he momentarily contemplated killing Kylo upon sensing that Snoke was corrupting him, which prompted Kylo to destroy Luke’s new Jedi Order. Convinced that Kylo can be redeemed, Rey leaves Ahch-To. Luke prepares to burn the Jedi library but hesitates. The spirit of Luke’s master Yoda appears and destroys the library by summoning a bolt of lightning. He encourages Luke to learn from his failure.

Meanwhile, Poe entrusts Finn, mechanic Rose, and BB-8 with a secret mission to disable the First Order’s tracking device. Maz Kanata directs them to the casino town of Canto Bight, where they meet the hacker DJ. Pursued by the local security, they escape Canto Bight with the help of stablehand children and racing animals they set free. Finn, Rose, and DJ infiltrate Snoke’s flagship but are captured by Captain Phasma. Kylo brings Rey to Snoke, who reveals that he connected their minds to discover Luke’s whereabouts.

Holdo plans to evacuate the remaining members of the Resistance using small transport vessels. Believing her plan cowardly and futile, Poe leads a mutiny. A recovered Leia stuns Poe with a blaster and proceeds with the evacuation. Holdo remains aboard the ship as a decoy to mislead Snoke’s fleet as the others flee to an abandoned base on Crait. DJ buys his freedom by revealing the Resistance’s plan to General Hux, and the First Order fleet begins firing on the evacuation transports, destroying many.

Ordered to kill Rey, Kylo instead kills Snoke and defeats his Praetorian Guard with her help. Rey hopes that Kylo has abandoned the dark side, but he instead asks her to rule the galaxy with him. Refusing, she battles him for control of Luke’s lightsaber, bisecting the weapon. Holdo sacrifices herself by slicing through Snoke’s flagship at lightspeed, crippling the First Order fleet. Rey escapes the destruction while Kylo declares himself Supreme Leader. BB-8 frees Finn and Rose; they defeat Phasma and join the survivors on Crait. When the First Order arrives, Poe, Finn, and Rose attack with obsolete speeders. Rey and Chewbacca draw TIE fighters away in the Millennium Falcon, while Rose stops Finn from sacrificing himself. The First Order penetrates the Resistance fortress using a siege cannon.

Luke appears and confronts the First Order, allowing the surviving Resistance to escape. Kylo orders the First Order’s forces to fire on Luke, but they fail to harm him. He then engages Luke in a lightsaber duel; upon striking Luke, Kylo realizes that Luke is not physically present, but projecting his image through the Force. Rey helps the remaining Resistance escape on the Falcon. Exhausted, Luke dies peacefully on Ahch-To, becoming one with the Force. Rey and Leia sense his death, and Leia tells Rey that the Resistance can rise again.

At Canto Bight, the stablehands recount the story of Luke Skywalker; afterward, one of them moves a broom with the Force and gazes into space.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017) – BLACK SUN HOLLYWOOD

BLADE RUNNER 2049 (2017)


 

Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 American neo-noir science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. A sequel to the 1982 film Blade Runner, the film stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, with Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, and Jared Leto in supporting roles. Ford and Edward James Olmos reprise their roles from the original film. Gosling plays K, a Nexus-9 replicant “blade runner” who uncovers a secret that threatens to destabilize society and the course of civilization.

Ideas for a Blade Runner sequel were first proposed in the 1990s, but licensing issues stalled their development. Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson obtained the film rights from Bud Yorkin. Ridley Scott stepped down as the film’s initial director and worked as an executive producer, while Villeneuve was later appointed to direct. Blade Runner 2049 was financed through an Alcon Entertainment–Sony Pictures partnership and a Hungarian government-funded tax rebate. Warner Bros., on behalf of Alcon, distributed the film in North America, while Sony handled distribution in international markets. Principal photography took place mostly at two soundstages in Budapest over four months from July to November 2016.

Blade Runner 2049 premiered in Los Angeles on October 3, 2017, and was released in the United States in 2D, 3D, and IMAX on October 6, 2017. The film received acclaim from critics, who praised its performances, direction, cinematography, editing, musical score, production design, visual effects, and faithfulness to the original film. It was widely considered among the best films of 2017. However, it was a box office disappointment, grossing $260.5 million worldwide against a production budget between $150–185 million. Blade Runner 2049 was nominated for and won several accolades: at the 90th Academy Awards, the film won Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects, and was nominated for Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Production Design. It also received eight nominations at the 71st British Academy Film Awards, including Best Director, and won Best Cinematography and Best Special Visual Effects.

Blade Runner 2049 (2017) – Trailer

PLOT SUMMARY

In 2049, bioengineered humans known as replicants are slaves. K (short for his serial number, KD6-3.7), a Nexus-9 replicant, works for the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) as a “blade runner,” an officer who hunts and “retires” (kills) rogue replicants. He retires Nexus-8 replicant Sapper Morton and finds a box buried under a tree at Morton’s protein farm. The box contains the remains of a female replicant who died during a cesarean section, demonstrating that replicants can reproduce biologically, previously thought impossible. K’s superior, Lt. Joshi, fears that this could lead to a war between humans and replicants. She orders K to find and retire the replicant child to hide the truth.

K visits the Wallace Corporation’s headquarters, the successor to the defunct Tyrell Corporation in the manufacture of replicants. Wallace staff members identify the deceased female from DNA archives as Rachael, an experimental replicant designed by Dr. Eldon Tyrell. K learns of Rachael’s romantic ties with former blade runner Rick Deckard. Wallace Corporation CEO Niander Wallace wants to discover the secret to replicant reproduction to expand interstellar colonization. He sends his replicant enforcer Luv to steal Rachael’s remains and follow K to Rachael’s child.

At Morton’s farm, K sees 6 10 21 carved into the tree trunk and recognizes it from a childhood memory of a wooden toy horse. Because replicant memories are artificial, K’s holographic AI girlfriend Joi believes this is evidence that K was born, not created. He searches LAPD records and discovers twins born on that date with identical DNA aside from the sex chromosome, but only the boy is listed as alive. K tracks the child to an orphanage in ruined San Diego but discovers the records from that year to be missing. K recognizes the orphanage from his memories and finds the toy horse where he remembers hiding it.

Dr. Ana Stelline, a replicant memory designer, confirms that the memory of the orphanage is real, leading K to conclude that he is Rachael’s son. At LAPD headquarters, K fails a post-traumatic baseline test, marking him as a rogue replicant; he lies to Joshi by implying he killed the replicant child. Joshi gives K 48 hours to pass the baseline test or he will be ‘retired.’ At Joi’s request, K reluctantly transfers her to a mobile emitter so he cannot be tracked through her console memory-files. He has the toy horse analyzed, revealing traces of radiation that lead him to the ruins of Las Vegas. He finds Deckard, who tells him that he is the father of Rachael’s child and scrambled the birth records to protect the child’s identity; Deckard left the child in the custody of the replicant freedom movement.

Luv kills Joshi and tracks K to Las Vegas. She kidnaps Deckard, destroys Joi, and leaves K to die. The replicant freedom movement rescues K. When their leader, Freysa, tells him that she helped deliver Rachael’s child and that the child was a girl, K understands that he is not Rachael’s child, deduces that Stelline is her daughter and that the memory of the toy horse is hers, one she implanted amongst those of other replicants whose memories she designed. To prevent Deckard from leading Wallace to Stelline or the freedom movement, Freysa asks K to kill Deckard for all replicants’ greater good.

Luv takes Deckard to Wallace Corporation headquarters to meet Wallace. Wallace offers Deckard a clone of Rachael in exchange for revealing what he knows. Deckard refuses, and the clone is killed. As Luv transports Deckard to be tortured and interrogated off-world, K intercepts Luv’s shuttle and tries to rescue Deckard. He fights Luv and manages to drown her, but he is mortally wounded. He stages Deckard’s death to protect him from Wallace and the replicant freedom movement before taking Deckard to Stelline’s office and handing him her toy horse. As K lies motionless on the steps, looking up at snow falling from the sky, Deckard enters the building and meets his daughter for the first time.

Scott served as the film’s executive producer on behalf of Warner Bros. It was released on October 6, 2017 to critical acclaim and middling box office returns. David Ehrlich of IndieWire wrote, “Few filmmakers of the 21st century have risen to prominence and prestige with the forcefulness of Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve, whose seemingly unstoppable career has been bolstered by a steady balance of critical respect and commercial success. In fact, Christopher Nolan is the only other person who comes to mind, and the similarities between the two of them are hard to ignore.”
