Predator is back and scarier than ever. First things first i need to set one thing straight. I have never seen a predator movie before, I have been meaning to for years now, however i have never gotten the chance.
As a newcomer to this franchise this trailer looked thrilling, engaging and action packed. The 20th Century Fox logo in predator vision was a nice detail at the start. It has suspense as the trailer leads up to the reveal of the ship and the predator itself. The ending got me really excited as we get a glimpse of Predator vs Predator a showdown that has not been seen on the big screen before!! I will definitely watch the rest of the films in the franchise before this releases on September 14th. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Shane Black has in store for us. I'm sorry I couldn't talk more about the trailer as I don't really know any of the characters or the story at the moment, however this is the official synopsis of the film:
"From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series."ow, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species.When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race."
Thank you so much for reading this short article. I hope you return later in the week for any breaking news or major updates to film or tv! :)
The Weekly Oddity 24th June 2018- 'Spiderman: Far From Home', Star Wars Stories Paused, Netflix Fires Comms Boss
Spiderman Sequel Title Revealed as 'Spiderman: Far From Home'
The next Spider-Man movie is keeping on brand with its "home" theme after the original's title of 'Homecoming'.
Tom Holland revealed on his Instagram account this Saturday that Spider-Man: Far From Home is the title of the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. Holland also continued the fun he's been having on social media, noting that following the events of Avengers: Infinity War, the idea of a Spider-Man sequel seems rather impossible considering.. well.. you know what happened.
The Far From Home title suggests that this will be the first Spider-Man solo movie to take the red and blue wall-crawler out of New York and put him in other parts of the world, such as London (based upon set photos).
Sony and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: Far From Home opens July 5, 2019 and will be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to follow Avengers 4- after that we aren't sure where Phase 4 will take us.
Lucasfilm halting Star Wars 'Story' films after Solo's Box Office Disappointment.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Lucasfilm are currently reassessing their plans for future Star Wars movies in the wake of the disappointing performance of May's Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is having to fight to make much more than $350 million worldwide.
"They haven’t slowed down development," says a source with knowledge of Lucasfilm’s thinking, "but they are licking their wounds." Hopefully this will see a change in the blip that seemed to be Solo and put the Star Wars franchise back on track before it's too late.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and her team are regrouping and figuring out the direction of the movies beyond the final installment of the main series of films, Star Wars: Episode IX, which is scheduled for release Dec. 20, 2019.
Rumours suggest that an Obi Wan movie is in the works while a Boba Fett standalone film-directed by James Mangold- is confirmed.
Netflix Comms Boss Jonathan Friedland Fired Over Use of 'N-Word'
Mr Friedland who had been at the streaming company for seven years, was fired on Saturday for using the derogatory 'N-Word' twice during meetings. In an internal memo, Chief Executive Reed Hastings apologised to staff for not acting sooner.
Jonathan Friedland wrote in a tweet: "I feel awful about the distress this lapse caused to people at a company I love." Hastings referred to his actions as showing 'a deep lack of understanding'
Friedland continued to say: "Leaders have to be beyond reproach in the example we set, and unfortunately I fell short of that standard when I was insensitive in speaking to my team about words that offend in comedy"
"Several people afterwards told him how inappropriate and hurtful his use of the N-word was, and Jonathan apologised to those that had been in the meeting" Mr. Hastings wrote.
"We hoped this was an awful anomaly never to be repeated." Mr. Hastings reiterated.
In a tweet subsequently deleted, Mr Friedland wrote: "Rise high, fall fast. All on a couple of words."
Something of a hotly debated topic recently in the entertainment industry is the prospect of a Disney-Fox merger which could see the mouse-house acquiring franchises such as the X-Men, but why does it matter, what does it mean for the future of Disney owned properties such as Marvel's Cinematic Universe? Let us explain.
Although the merger between Disney and Fox would finally unite the Marvel properties (we're hoping for an Avengers/X-Men crossover, come on Kevin! Please!)– it hasn't been easy to get the ball rolling since the move was first announced in December last year. Not only does the merger have to be approved by the US government, there's also the small matter of Comcast, owner of NBCUniversal, which wants a chunk of that 21st Century Fox pie.
Comcast, the current opponent to Disney has offered an impressive $65 billion – in cash – for the company's entertainment assets. As of 21st June 2018, Disney has bumped up its earlier bid to buy 21st Century Fox from $52 billion to a huge $71.3 billion.
Disney boss Robert Iger has said that, if its bid is successful, the Disney-Fox merger will "bring significant financial value to the shareholders of both companies. We believe that we have a much better opportunity, both in terms of approval and the timing of that approval, than Comcast does" Iger continued to say, according to The Wall Street Journal.
"We remain convinced that the combination of 21 Century Fox‘s iconic assets, brands and franchises with Disney‘s will create one of the greatest, most innovative companies in the world."
But do you agree with Bob Iger? Would you prefer a merger between 21CF and Comcast? Or do you just want that Deadpool cameo in Avengers 5? Let us know below! :)
The wait is finally over... but it will hurt. Luther series 5 is coming soon to BBC. View the trailer below
Albeit short and not showing any footage apart from the wonderful Idris Elba enigmatically walking up to the camera and breathing heavily, the trailer doesn't provide much information about the upcoming series other than - "It will hurt". Take from that what you will. We will be covering the series later this year on A Space Oddity so stay tuned!
