The long wait for a new Venom movie is almost over. Venom: There Will Be Carnage will hit theaters later this year and from IGN we exclusively unveiled the new official trailer with the director of the film, Andy Serkis. What secrets do these first images hide?

Take a look at the trailer below first.

The dysfunctional relationship between Eddie and Venom

Right after starting, the trailer makes it clear that Eddie and Venom are having a hard time living in the same body. Eddie is trying to rebuild his life and career as a journalist, but the symbiote only cares about continuing to beat up evildoers and satisfy his appetite.

A strange stage in the relationship“Andy Serkis tells us.”They’ve been together … a year and a half, more or less, since the last movie. And they try to find out how they can be together. Eddie is fighting. He cannot concentrate. You are trying to get on with work. And he, of course, only thinks about himself, in general.

Serkis continues, “So having this other being in your little apartment is like seeing some kind of weird, fucking version of yourself in the mirror. And Venom, of course, feels trapped, because he can’t leave Eddie’s body unless he has his permission. And when they come out, the deal is: you live in my body, you live by my rules. And we are threatened. We are in a dangerous position. We have to shut up. And no one should know because of everything that happened in the past, if people find out and realize what is happening, we will both be taken to Area 51“.

In other words, even though the sequel is about the long-awaited showdown between Tom Hardy’s Venom and Woody Harrelson’s Massacre, it is clear that Eddie will continue to be his worst enemy.

Cletus Kasady’s obsession

The first Venom movie features Cletus Kasady, played by Woody Harrelson, through a post-credit scene, with the character imprisoned and promising that “When I get out of here, and I will, there will be a carnage“.

That scene implied some kind of relationship or connection between the two characters, and this trailer for the sequel shows that Cletus has developed a keen interest in Eddie. In fact, he seems almost to be Eddie’s Clarice Starling’s Hannibal Lecter.

Serkis makes it clear to us that Cletus is attracted to Eddie because he feels a kindred spirit. Meanwhile, Eddie sees this relationship as an opportunity to delve into Kasady’s twisted past and discover the burial sites of his murder victims, thus reigniting his own journalistic career.

They both had a special childhood with strange relationships with their parents and their families. And there is an inherent loneliness that you both recognize in each other”Says Serkis. “Cletus walks over and talks to Eddie Brock at the beginning of the story, we learn that he is the only one he will talk to. And the police therefore want Eddie to investigate and try to find out where some of the bodies of Cletus’ victims are.“.

Has a mission”, Adds Serkis. “But he’s also selfish just like Eddie can be. He wants to go in there and get a story, go back to what he likes to do, which is to write and be a journalist. So this really establishes the confrontation, or false relationship, that Eddie pretends to have with Cletus in order to gain information.“.

As the trailer shows, Cletus’ madness is reflected through the strange and intricate drawings that line the walls of his cell. Those drawings may or may not have special significance to the plot, but they definitely offer a glimpse into the terrifying mind of Cletus Kasady.

Cletus has an extraordinary mind and imagination, similar to that of a child but vivid, and expresses himself by drawing”Says Serkis. “His cell is completely covered with these really strange marks and expressions. It is how you represent your anger, frustration, sadness, despair and loneliness.”.

We wanted to give the feeling that it has been there for some time and that it has gone through several stages … so that we could really see what is going on with the darkness of the character“.

How does Grito fit in?

While Carnage is clearly the central villain of this story, The sequel also features Naomie Harris’ character Francis Barriston (known as Scream).. In the Marvel comics, Scream is a partner and lover of Carnage. Although Serkis is silent on whether the two will have a romantic relationship in the film, he reveals that she will have a lot to do with the film’s emphasis on problematic characters with abusive parents.

She is a damaged soul and has suffered in her childhood, but there is a real vulnerability in her, and she is suffering a lot… She has been living in isolation for many years.”, Serkis tells us. “All of these characters are multifaceted, totally truthful and believable, and yet … She is also dangerous and I think she has her own sense of justice, and I think when that line is crossed, you see a very, very dangerous dark side, and that’s what we wanted to do with the character “.

Serkis confirms sequel will explore tension between Eddie and ex-girlfriend Anne Weying (played again by Michelle Williams). At this point, Anne is still in a relationship with Reid Scott’s character, Dr. Dan Lewis, but Serkis comments that the old spark may still live on.

She made a decision in her life, ‘I have to move on. I can’t be with this person. It is not to be trusted at all. It is not sincere. I have enjoyed this wild type of person, but it is not for me. At the end of the day, I have to find someone I can trust, with whom I can move on, form a reasonable relationship, not get carried away all the time by this madness. ‘ “.

Bringing Matanza to Live Action

It wouldn’t be a great superhero movie if the main villain remained powerless and behind bars the entire time. The trailer makes it clear that Cletus will cheat death during his attempted execution, somehow bonding with the symbiote and becoming Carnage.

It was a lot of fun working with this character in terms of design and taking him from the world of comics.”, dice Serkis. “It was wonderful to have the opportunity to bring this character that had never been seen on the screen before, in our story we played with physics, with how he moves and how he handles his tentacles“.

In the comics, the symbiotes get progressively stronger with each new host, meaning that Carnage is usually too powerful for Spider-Man or Venom to control alone. But Serkis explains that his film seeks to reflect the differences between Venom and Carnage. Cletus may not have Eddie’s physique, but his deranged personality opens up a whole new world of possibilities.

“It can turn into fog and resort to all sorts of tricks. It can take different forms. It can arm itself, it can do many different things”Says Serkis. “Symbiotes reflect the person who is their host. Slaughter is darkness, joy, wit, strangeness. Cletus has intelligence and a sense of humor, and we wanted to reflect that in the symbiote that is linked to him.“.

Given Serkis’s history with motion-capture performances (playing Gollum in the Lord of the Rings movies, Caesar in Planet of the Apes, King Kong, etc.), it should come as no surprise that he brought that experience to his life. first direction. Serkis tells IGN that a lot of attention was paid to the way these characters move on screen. to highlight the physical differences between Venom and Carnage.

Venom is … pretty straightforward in a way. He’s like a quarterback. He is very firm, physically very heavy, where brute force is his thing. While Carnage, in the same way that Cletus is psychologically and physically manipulative, he can take your energy and change it completely. So we wanted the whole style of the movement to be very idiosyncratic, weird. Basically, it would be like trying to fight an octopus.“.

Serkis adds: “Also, what we were able to do, which was amazing, was work with dancers and actors on a capture stage, and then watch things come to life and use little snippets to practice and test things out. It was a really exciting period in the making of the film, it was the Matanza motion tests. That was a really exciting part.“.

Venom: There Will Be Carnage It will premiere on September 17, 2021.

Today at DC Fandome we have been able to see the first and long-awaited images of Black Adam, with Dwayne Johnson, as Shazam’s archenemy!

Without a doubt, the DC Comics film projects have captured all the attention in the DC Fandome, and one of them is the expected Black Adam of Dwayne Johnson, that if last year he presented several concept art of the film, today he has followed in the footsteps of The Suicide Squad by James Gunn last year, and has revealed a video with some brief images of the shooting, however the highlight has come when Johnson has presented one of the opening scenes of the film.

In it we can see archaeologists accompanied by a group of mercenaries in what looks like Egyptian ruins and there they free Black Adam of what could be your prison . The scene is very revealing because it shows us the enemy of Shazam! showing some of his powers and having no compassion for his enemies.

Johnson among other things has said in the Black Adam panel that “He was born to play the character” and that the movie would feature a lot of action.

You can see behind the scenes and the scene below:

Little is known about the film’s plot, we will surely know his origins, and how he became the magician’s champion, it is likely, apparently in the teaser, that Black Adam will come to face the society of justice, with Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Destiny, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, or Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, among others.

First appearance in the comics

Black Adam was created by Otto Binder and CC Beck, and first appeared in The Marvel Family N.º 1
in December 1945. However, Black Adam was revived as a recurring character later at DC Comics, who licensed the characters from Fawcett Comics publisher in 1973.

Black Adam was a predecessor of Shazam! whose origins are in ancient Egypt, and who made his way into modern times to challenge the hero and his allies. However, since the early 21st century, DC Comics writers Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S. Goyer have redefined Black Adam as a corrupt antihero trying to clear his name and reputation. Featured roles in comic series such as Justice Society of America (JSA), Villains United, Infinite Crisis and New 52 have raised the character’s prominence in the DC Universe.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, the cast includes Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam, Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz / Isis, Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Destino / Kent Nelson, Aldis Hodge as Carter Hall / Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Al Rothstein / Atom Smasher, Marwan Kenzari, Joseph Gatt as Squad Leader, Uli Latukefu, Quintessa Swindell as Maxine Hunkell / Cyclone, Donny Carrington, Mohammed Amer, Angel Rosario Jr. as Mercenary, James Cusati-Moyer, Bodhi Sabongui, Chaim Jeraffi as Djau, Stephan Jones as Commander, Rahiem Riley as Foreign Resident, Tre Ryan as Mercenary, Cameron Moir, Jalon Christian, Tang Nguyen, DJ Stavropoulos and Juan Szilagyi.

Through over 1,000 years of royal history, it is entirely likely that a few unexpected family links have turned up.

We need only look at how the Queen is 20th cousins with Paris Hilton or how Prince Charles is eighth cousins with Harry Potter actor Ralph Fiennes.

But the relations are not just through historical ancestors, they are also brought in through marriage.

With this in mind, let’s explore how the Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are linked to Strictly Come Dancing Star Greg Wise and acting royalty Dame Emma Thompson.

The Queen and Prince William



Prince William is the Queen’s third grandchild and second eldest grandson

Let’s start with two very familiar faces. Prince William is the Queen’s second eldest grandson and third eldest grandchild.

He was born at St Mary’s Hospital on June 21, 1982 to the Prince and Princess of Wales and was raised at Kensington Palace.

He will one day be the king, likely succeeding his father as William V.

Prince William and Kate Middleton



The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married in 2011

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met in 2001 when they were both students at St Andrew’s University in Scotland.

The couple were together for many years before they got engaged in Kenya in 2010.

They married at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011 and have three children, Prince George (b. 2013), Princess Charlotte (b. 2015) and Prince Louis (b. 2018).

Kate Middleton and Helena Bonham-Carter

The royal and the actress share a great-great-great grandfather

It would appear that Helena Bonham-Carter doesn’t just play royalty in her day job, she is directly related to them too!

Hello! Magazine reported that the pair share a great-great-great grandfather who was “A Yorkshireman who worked in the wool trade”, making them distant cousins.

But the royal links don’t stop there for the actress who is famous for playing Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter series and the Queen Mother in the King’s Speech, as it would seem she has also has a link to Princess Margaret – another character she embodied for seasons three and four of The Crown.

Bonham-Carter’s uncle reportedly dated the Queen’s younger sister, with the actress commenting: “They always remained good friends. I have photos of them together and they look really dashing as a couple”.

Kenneth Branagh and Helena Bonham Carter previously dated

Helena Bonham-Carter was in a relationship with actor and filmmaker Sir Kenneth Branagh between 1994 and 1999.

According to an L.A. Times article, Bonham-Carter and Branagh first met in 1988 when they “both took part in a poetry reading on a boat floating down the Thames”.

It is thought the two Harry Potter stars began their relationship while Branagh was still married as the pair worked together on the 1994 film Frankenstein.

The pair married in 1989

The couple were married in 1989 but divorced after six years in 1995.

While it is unclear exactly when their relationship broke down, Thompson has made it clear that she does not blame Bonham-Carter.

She called any ill will “blood under the bridge,” adding, “You can’t hold on to anything like that.”

Joking, she went on to say that she and Bonham Carter were both “slightly mad and a bit fashion-challenged.

“Perhaps that’s why Ken loved us both,” Thompson said in jest.

“She’s a wonderful woman, Helena.”

Dame Emma Thompson and Greg Wise

The couple married in 2003

Lastly we have Strictly star Greg Wise and his wife Dame Emma Thompson. The pair married on July 29, 2003 – having previously met on the set of Sense and Sensibility.

Thompson recalled their unconventional meeting in an interview with Graham Norton.

She said: “Before [Greg] did the job, he went to see a friend of his who was a bit witchy and she said he would meet his future partner on the film,” she explained.

By now, it’s a seven-year-old rumor. You’ve probably listened to it ad nauseam. Back in 2014, the hacking of Sony’s email revealed a message from its president, Amy Pascal, in which she wrote: “Idris [Elba] I should be the next Bond. “

And so, for years, Idris Elba has wandered through the world of James Bond fans who were shouting throughout the forums whether or not the actor should follow Daniel Craig as the next 007. (Of course, Elba didn’t help. when he tweeted in 2018: “My name is Elba, Idris Elba”, which he later admitted was a joke). After the premiere of Sin time to die, Elba told a journalist: “No, I am not going to be James Bond.” Fortunately, in the Esquire cover story featuring Elba, Elba has added some context as to why he’s perfectly fine without needing to disguise himself as a spy, hinting that his BBC crime series, Luther, already fills that spy hole in your life.

This content is imported from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

“I’m joking, but this is my response to Bond,” Elba said. “[Luther] is my great character who lives in the same space as the Bournes and the Bonds of the world. Not in terms of spy work, but as a character who fights against evil and who will stop at nothing for it. And we create it from scratch. Neil Cross and I turned to the creation of John Luther. I have never been more grateful for a character that moves on. I love him. And he is a difficult character to interpret. It is very absorbing, but I have liked to bring it to life every time. I loved it”.

On another part of the cover, Elba addressed some of the racist reactions of fans to the rumors about Bond:

From a certain perspective, hey, there is a logic: Bond is Nordic; It shouldn’t be played by a black man. But from another sector there was something like ‘Idris Elba is a bastard, he’s disgusting, he’s not fucking James Bond, he’s never going to be James Bond’. That was hate.

Then Elba was silent for a moment, and continued:

If you get to a level like mine, I can’t sit here and worry that some jerk with a pseudonym will write, ‘Idris is black, he shouldn’t interpret. . . I do not mind; I shouldn’t worry about it. Also, I have thick skin. I’m old and ugly enough to know they love you, then they hate you, and then they love you again.

Read our Oct/Nov cover story starring Idris Elba here.

Elba’s reasoning can be respected in this case: why take on the role that so many actors have played over the years when you’ve already made a name for yourself as an original hero, John Luther? Not to mention the effect of all the hatred man has received over the years. With Esquire writer Tim Lewis writing that the Bond investigation marked the “only moment in our interview where there’s a chill in the room (or rather, in the Zoom app), which he really dislikes,” such Maybe we should put an end to this rumor once and for all. In any case, that did not stop the director of No time to die, Cary Joji Fukunaga, told Lewis what he thought of the idea of ​​Elba in the famous role:

It would be a piece of cake. Elba could easily do it. When he walks into a room, you can feel the smoothness with which he handles himself. And that’s the kind of softness that Bond gives off, that confidence in any situation: strength, calm and awareness. In terms of physicality and the ability to move with blows, you can imagine Elba handling a situation where things get ugly or dangerous, and then ending up with a smile or some clever ironic occurrence.

Whether you live and die for Batman or if Wonder Woman’s your No. 1, it was the best day to be a DC Comics superhero fan.

The virtual DC FanDome returned for a second year Saturday, with plenty of new trailers, first looks and big news coming from the world of DC superheroes on screen. DC FanDome premiered the new trailer for Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman,” and fans saw early glimpses at John Cena’s “The Suicide Squad” HBO Max spinoff “Peacemaker,” Dwayne Johnson’s superhero debut in “Black Adam” and more.

For even more of a superhero flex, the event also included appearances from Pattinson, Cena, Johnson, filmmakers J.J. Abrams and Ava DuVernay, “Flash” movie star Ezra Miller, “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” actor Zachary Levi, and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” stars Jason Momoa and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

‘The Batman’: New trailer shows Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight taking on the Riddler

‘The Suicide Squad’: John Cena makes the most of his ‘second chance’ in Hollywood

Watch the entire FanDome event above and below are all the biggest highlights.

Robert Pattinson takes his turn as the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.”

‘The Batman’ drops a new trailer and some Robert Pattinson trivia

In addition to the newest trailer, a behind-the-scenes reel showcased glimpses of Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman and much more from the new flick (out March 4, 2022), which finds a young Batman working out his rage and taking on a case that shakes him to his core. “So many people connect with him on such a deep level for so many reasons,” says Pattinson, a longtime Bat-fan.

He also told a story about how on his first day of work, Pattinson had to wear Val Kilmer’s rubber Batsuit from 1995’s “Batman Forever.” “It was crazy but I remember putting it on and thinking, ‘This is going to be absolutely impossible.’ I remember doing like two takes and (director Matt Reeves) being like, ‘What can we do about that sweat?’ Nothing!”

Pattinson also teases a Caped Crusader where the delineation between Bruce Wayne and Batman “isn’t so clear. He’s a little bit out of control. He gets lost in it every time he puts (the suit) on at night. He’s becoming this sort of odd creature.”

‘Shazam!’ sequel piles a ton of mythology on Zachary Levi’s hero

“You’re in store for a treat, y’all,” Levi says about the new “Fury of the Gods” sequel, coming in 2023. A behind-the-scenes reel teased bigger action and a heroic lair for the Shazam family, led by the Levi’s title teen-turned-superhero. The upcoming film will introduce a bunch of new mythological elements, including minotaurs, harpies and dragons, as well as a couple of goddesses who threaten Philadelphia and the world, played by Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu.

‘The Flash’ sneak peek shows Michael Keaton’s Batman (well, his ears at least)

Miller said he and “The Flash” director Andy Muschietti didn’t have enough footage for a full trailer but he did bring a little sneak peek at the upcoming movie (Nov. 4, 2022) with a voiceover from Michael Keaton returning as the Batman from the Tim Burton films. “You can go anywhere you want, right? Any universe? Why do you want to stay and fight for this one?” Keaton’s Bruce Wayne states to Miller’s speedster Barry Allen as fresh footage hints to the Flash’s new supersuit and time-traveling, multiverse-hopping abilities. And while fans didn’t get a chance to see Keaton in his costume for the first time since 1992’s “Batman Returns,” the teaser did show his superhero’s iconic ears from to whet audience’s appetites.

‘Peacemaker’ trailer teases John Cena’s patriotic jerk and his feathery best friend

Cena’s morally questionable patriot stole the show in James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” and gets not only his own HBO Max action comedy series premiering Jan. 13 but also an eagle sidekick who gives out hugs. Peacemaker’s an egotistical guy who goes to violent extremes in the name of liberty. He also has some daddy issues (with Robert Patrick as his father). But the teaser that dropped at FanDome hints that he might get some help with his attitude from co-workers such as rookie handler Adebayo (Danielle Brooks), a very green newcomer who’s only worked with animals before, and the goofy costumed Vigilante (Freddie Stroma).

Jason Momoa returns for a more mature, action-packed ‘Aquaman’ sequel

Aquaman riding a giant sea horse? Yep, that’s definitely happening in the upcoming sequel “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” (Dec. 16, 2022). Momoa and director James Wan revealed a behind-the-scenes reel featuring concept art and co-stars Patrick Wilson and Amber Heard. Wan promised a more mature followup with fun and heart taking the Justice Leaguer to new underwater worlds. Plus the Mateen’s villainous Black Adam is still on his quest for vengeance and to kill Aquaman (and also gets a cool new submarine). “I think fans are going to be very happy,” Mateen says.

Dwayne Johnson is electric in ‘Black Adam’ first-look scene

Johnson kicked off the event with a first-look scene at his upcoming superhero debut in “Black Adam” (in theaters July 29, 2022), directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. It showed the title antihero, a brutal and uncompromising figure, who reveals himself in a black cape and hood amid the depths of an ancient structure as he magically electrifies a dude into a skeleton. “It’s the kind of project that I know comes once in a lifetime. And I know I was born to play Black Adam,” Johnson says. Also impressed by the movie’s scale is Pierce Brosnan, the former James Bond who plays Dr. Fate: “I’ve never seen the likes of this before.”

Miller said he and “The Flash” director Andy Muschietti didn’t have enough footage for a full trailer but he did bring a little sneak peek at the upcoming movie (Nov. 4, 2022) with a voiceover from Michael Keaton returning as the Batman from the Tim Burton films. “You can go anywhere you want, right? Any universe? Why do you want to stay and fight for this one?” Keaton’s Bruce Wayne states to Miller’s speedster Barry Allen as fresh footage hints to the Flash’s new supersuit and time-traveling, multiverse-hopping abilities. And while fans didn’t get a chance to see Keaton in his costume for the first time since 1992’s “Batman Returns,” the teaser did show his superhero’s iconic ears from to whet audience’s appetites.

‘Peacemaker’ trailer teases John Cena’s patriotic jerk and his feathery best friend

Cena’s morally questionable patriot stole the show in James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad” and gets not only his own HBO Max action comedy series premiering Jan. 13 but also an eagle sidekick who gives out hugs. Peacemaker’s an egotistical guy who goes to violent extremes in the name of liberty. He also has some daddy issues (with Robert Patrick as his father). But the teaser that dropped at FanDome hints that he might get some help with his attitude from co-workers such as rookie handler Adebayo (Danielle Brooks), a very green newcomer who’s only worked with animals before, and the goofy costumed Vigilante (Freddie Stroma).

Jason Momoa returns for a more mature, action-packed ‘Aquaman’ sequel

Aquaman riding a giant sea horse? Yep, that’s definitely happening in the upcoming sequel “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” (Dec. 16, 2022). Momoa and director James Wan revealed a behind-the-scenes reel featuring concept art and co-stars Patrick Wilson and Amber Heard. Wan promised a more mature followup with fun and heart taking the Justice Leaguer to new underwater worlds. Plus the Mateen’s villainous Black Adam is still on his quest for vengeance and to kill Aquaman (and also gets a cool new submarine). “I think fans are going to be very happy,” Mateen says.

Dwayne Johnson is electric in ‘Black Adam’ first-look scene

Johnson kicked off the event with a first-look scene at his upcoming superhero debut in “Black Adam” (in theaters July 29, 2022), directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. It showed the title antihero, a brutal and uncompromising figure, who reveals himself in a black cape and hood amid the depths of an ancient structure as he magically electrifies a dude into a skeleton. “It’s the kind of project that I know comes once in a lifetime. And I know I was born to play Black Adam,” Johnson says. Also impressed by the movie’s scale is Pierce Brosnan, the former James Bond who plays Dr. Fate: “I’ve never seen the likes of this before.”

The actress talks about the challenge of playing a Crellin in Sharp Objects.

Sharp Objects has reached the end of its season, however the hit HBO series, which kept its audience waiting for what each week’s episode would bring Amy Adams, is available on its platform. One of the most endearing characters on the show is undoubtedly Amma Crellin, played by Eliza Scanlen, who spoke about her character.

Nuances

Amma is an amazing character. You don’t see many young female roles like her …

I know, and especially at such a young age. I am aware of how lucky I am to have gotten this role, especially when in the middle the 18-year-old characters are played by 28 or 30-year-old actors […] I think I was lucky enough to see myself young enough, and also that there was such a young character with so many nuances, so complex. And so dark, too.

In terms of research, what did you look for when looking for information to compose not only the character of Amma, but also the family environment?

When researching for a character, I like to know everything about him and everything about his world. […]I started by working on Amma’s mindset and how trauma can permanently affect a family, especially a multigenerational family. This family has been assaulted by devastating trauma, and the fact that it continues to affect them today was indicative of the complexity of these characters and the depth of the investigation that had to be done. I focused a lot on the way people abuse power.

Amma is irritable and when you meet her you don’t immediately fall in love with her, but she lives under a lot of pressure. You have a level of responsibility within that family that makes it hard to imagine what it’s like to grow up like this, with so many expectations placed on you. Is it something you have considered?

Yes, exactly, and she wants to be the perfect daughter for Adora, but she feels that Marian is like an omnipresent angel who is above her and with whom she can never compete. I can’t imagine what it would be like to live with that for a lifetime, and also knowing that he has a sister that he has never met, like a lost brotherly opportunity.

Adora’s overbearing personality overshadows Amma’s independence, her freedom of thought, her curiosity … therefore, she has no choice as a person but to exercise that control elsewhere, and she finds that place in her friends. . She does not know what to do to receive some kind of gratification, and that ends up being harmful to her life and her future. It is an interesting vision of small towns, but I think it applies to any place and any type of situation, whether within a family or in the work environment.

The show really reminded me of how scary teenage girls can be.

They can be bad. Very bad. They have a certain power and if they realize it, they can be quite threatening. They know that they have power over certain people. It is really scary when they realize that a person is vulnerable and inferior. Amma definitely has that.

What was it like working with Amy?

She was like a big sister to me on the show, but also on set. Not only did he help me with life on set and guide me through that, but he also told me so many life stories and taught me life lessons. She has been a great support to me. She is a normal person who just happens to enjoy acting and who happens to be fantastic at it. I couldn’t have asked to work with a more caring person.

It is not being easy to continue with the saga of ‘Black Panther’. The protagonist of the Marvel movie, Chadwick Boseman, has passed away after years of suffering from cancer, and The one who seems to be the natural heir to the throne of Wakanda does not stop starring in controversy.

Letitia Wright, the actress who plays Shuri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has denied in an Instagram post the rumors that he has defended an anti-vaccination stance in the filming of ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’. The rumors came from an article by The Hollywood Reporter, which claimed that according to an anonymous source the actress shared her anti-vaccine ideas with the team. Wright claims that they are “completely uncertain”.

In the past the young Guyanese has expressed anti-vaccine sentiments on social media, eventually having to temporarily delete his Twitter and Instagram accounts due to the criticism he received after sharing a skeptical video about the COVID-19 vaccine. “My intention was not to harm anyone, my only intention by sharing the video was to express my concern with what the vaccine contains and what we are getting into the body … nothing more”he explained at the time. In the new statement, he does not specify his position regarding the vaccine or if he has received it..

The full release, which is liked by Chris Pratt, reads like this: “God bless you. I am saddened to have to talk about the rumors published by The Hollywood Reporter on October 6, 2021. The news spoke of my conduct on the filming of ‘Black Panther 2’. I honestly state that this was completely untrue.. Anyone who knows me or who has worked with me knows that I work very hard and my main concern is always to carry out work that is impactful and inspiring. That has been and will always be my only concern. I will continue to hold God’s hands and be guided by verse 54:17 of Isaiah. I keep working on healing. Thank you for your prayers. And I keep praying for God’s love, peace and joy for all of you. God bless you”.

The image that accompanies the text is a photo that quotes the aforementioned verse from the Bible, which reads like this: “No weapon forged against you will prosper, and you will condemn every tongue that rises against you in judgment”, Isaiah 54:17.

Also, rugged

The last words about healing refer to the accident Letitia Wright suffered recently while filming the Ryan Coogler-directed sequel in Boston (although the main recording takes place in Atlanta). The actress had to be hospitalized, but the thing would be settled with some minor injuries and a recovery time.

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ will hit theaters in July 2022 and will bring back Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, while Tenoch Huerta will play the villain. Also joining the cast is Michaela Coel in an unknown role, which some fans theorize could end up as X-Men Storm..

Built primarily for locals but also drawing tourists since opening almost a decade ago, the Smith Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Las Vegas has become a cultural hub for both the city and the region. In addition to other programming, its popular Broadway Las Vegas series returns this month, ending a pandemic-related hiatus.

For Myron Martin, founding president and CEO, the reopening is both a relief and the culmination of a lot of hard work to schedule productions amid the uncertainty.

“This has been a tough year and a half or so,” Martin said. “It’s tough to not be surrounded by the team that you built, to not greet our guests every day like we’re used to, to have the ghost light [the theater tradition of keeping a single light burning at all times] being the only illumination on the stage for most of these days and months that we’ve been closed.”

“Cats” reopened the theater with performances from Oct. 12 to 17. That will be followed by the world premiere of the musical “An Officer and a Gentleman” (Oct. 26 to 30) as it launches its 50-city North American tour. Based on the hit film starring Richard Gere and Debra Winger, the stage production celebrates triumph over adversity with the same memorably romantic ending. In addition to “Up Where We Belong,” other ’80s classics — “Alone,”https://www.travelweekly.com/North-America-Travel/”Don’t Cry Out Loud,”https://www.travelweekly.com/North-America-Travel/”Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and “Material Girl” — are featured.

“The Play That Goes Wrong” (Nov. 9 to 14), melding the humor of Monty Python with a Sherlock Holmes mystery, and “A Christmas Carol” (Nov. 23 to 28) follow. Next year brings “My Fair Lady” (Jan. 25 to 30), 10-time Tony Award-winner “The Band’s Visit” (Feb. 15 to 20) and “Tootsie” (May 24 to 29).

The musical/cultural phenomenon “Hamilton,” which appeared at the Smith Center for nearly a month in 2018, will return for the 2022-2023 season.

Whether the Smith Center would attract the highest-profile Broadway tours was a question when it opened in March 2012 with a star-studded celebration that aired on PBS.

“We were unproven,” Martin said. “Even our friends in New York, the Broadway producers and agents, had no way of knowing what level of success we would actually attain.”

Las Vegas Strip resorts experimented with Broadway in the early 2000s. But it wasn’t until a six-week, sold-out run of “Wicked” at the Smith Center during its inaugural season that Las Vegas definitively proved to be a good touring market for Broadway shows, Martin said.

Ever since, the Smith Center has gotten its fair share of first-run tours. The national tour of “Kinky Boots” launched there in 2014, and the venue has produced several other shows in anticipation of them eventually heading to Broadway. It is consistently ranked among the top theaters in the world by Pollstar magazine.

The Smith Center’s main performance space, Reynolds Hall, can seat up to 2,050. State-of-the-art acoustics and masterfully designed sightlines make any event an unforgettable experience for guests, Martin said.

“Every seat’s a good seat. There are no obstructed views. Acoustically, it’s extraordinary. And it’s just comfortable and beautiful at the same time,” Martin said.

Two more intimate venues, the 240-seat Myron’s (named for Martin) and the 200-seat Troesh Studio Theater, are also housed in the Smith Center.

Myron’s features jazz and other live music, with small plates, snacks and beverages, in a cabaret-style experience. Troesh is a flexible space with large windows and two tiers of general admission seating; it hosts classical ensemble performances, plays, family shows and stand-up comedy.

Built through a public-private partnership with numerous donors, a car-rental fee and the city of Las Vegas, the $470 million Smith Center is the city’s first performing arts center. So its programming complements the Strip’s world-renowned offerings, Martin said.

“Nobody’s better than Las Vegas at entertaining guests. The hoteliers and the concert promoters who do their work up and down the Strip are unmatched. They really do an extraordinary job,” Martin said.

He estimated that audiences normally include about 90% locals, which includes those from the short-drive market of northern Arizona and southern Utah. However, he said, the split between tourists and locals becomes closer to 50-50 when it’s a blockbuster show such as “Wicked” or “Hamilton.”

“We’re proud to show off this jewel of Las Vegas to people who come in and visit from out of town. And we’re very welcoming when they join us for a show,” he said. “[But] we bring the things that our local population wants to see, and we give them an experience that is unmatched. And that’s our niche.”

In addition to the Broadway productions, the Smith Center schedule includes performances by a pair of Broadway icons, Kristin Chenoweth (Dec. 31) and Patti LuPone (Jan. 22); music legends Johnny Mathis (Nov. 6) and Paul Anka (March 10); and acclaimed jazz performers Branford Marsalis (Oct. 29 and 30) and Boney James (March 26).

The Smith Center will also host renowned dance groups Ballet Folklorico (March 23) and Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (April 9) as well as speakers Garrison Keillor (Jan. 21) and Neil deGrasse Tyson (March 8).

Tickets can be purchased at the Smith Center’s website, thesmithcenter.com/tickets, where the venue’s Covid-19 protocols can be found.

He estimated that audiences normally include about 90% locals, which includes those from the short-drive market of northern Arizona and southern Utah. However, he said, the split between tourists and locals becomes closer to 50-50 when it’s a blockbuster show such as “Wicked” or “Hamilton.”

“We’re proud to show off this jewel of Las Vegas to people who come in and visit from out of town. And we’re very welcoming when they join us for a show,” he said. “[But] we bring the things that our local population wants to see, and we give them an experience that is unmatched. And that’s our niche.”

In addition to the Broadway productions, the Smith Center schedule includes performances by a pair of Broadway icons, Kristin Chenoweth (Dec. 31) and Patti LuPone (Jan. 22); music legends Johnny Mathis (Nov. 6) and Paul Anka (March 10); and acclaimed jazz performers Branford Marsalis (Oct. 29 and 30) and Boney James (March 26).

The Smith Center will also host renowned dance groups Ballet Folklorico (March 23) and Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (April 9) as well as speakers Garrison Keillor (Jan. 21) and Neil deGrasse Tyson (March 8).

Tickets can be purchased at the Smith Center’s website, thesmithcenter.com/tickets, where the venue’s Covid-19 protocols can be found.

It’s been so long since the premiere of Batman Begins – 84%, that the Batman trilogy starring Christian Bale is about to reach two decades of life faster than we think. Unlike other films in superhero cinema and, to be honest, also graphic novel adaptations, The Dark Knight trilogy left a mark on mainstream cinema that will never be erased. It is not for nothing that it is said that the movie Batman: The Dark Knight – 94% is one of the best superhero movies ever, and Christopher Nolan’s work has not really found competition despite the fact that movie studios, in some cases, prefer to bet on more quantity than quality.

Do not miss it: Batman Begins: The Movies That Inspired Christopher Nolan’s Jewel

The Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan it has been a commercial and critical success. The entire series grossed more than $ 2 billion, and critics have hailed the film series as the best in the superhero genre. What makes all three movies as a whole amazing is always up for debate because not just one particular point can be made. Of course, the trilogy is spearheaded by one of the most accomplished and skilled directors, as he is responsible for films like Dunkirk – 92% and Tenet – 83%. It’s also packed with a star-studded cast featuring actors like Christian Bale, Michael Caine, and Heath Ledger.

And despite having a highly structured storyline and compelling characters, arguably the biggest reason fans love the trilogy so much is the powerful messages and lessons that can be learned throughout the installments. In this case, Nolan’s Batman movies are more than action-packed extravagances – they’re meditations. Meditations on what it means to be a superhero and meditations on the nature of civil society and its institutions. As a consequence, there is much we can learn from these three films that can help us build and lead our own organizations or that we can simply apply in our lives.

Throughout the three films we find valuable lessons, sometimes in the voice of the wise Alfred Pennyworth, or the experiences of Bruce Wayne himself. These are the best lessons that The Dark Knight trilogy has left us:

We recommend you: How Tim Burton’s Batman Changed Hollywood and Superhero Movies

Overcome your fears

There are many brave characters in this trilogy that constantly shows the characters fighting crime and, more significantly, conquering their own fears. The most obvious example is Bruce Wayne himself, who managed to overcome his fear of death and bats after his tragic childhood. Once Bruce channels his fears, he becomes Batman and stops evil in Gotham. While this fear is also related to his bat suit, it also provides him with the much-needed mental strength to do what he wants.

Failure can be the key to success

One of the best parts of the Nolan trilogy is the supporting cast performances and one that stands out is Alfred Pennyworth, who played a significant role in giving Bruce important lessons. A constant theme of the film is the idea of ​​failure, and in one of the scenes it is shown when Bruce is trapped in a well as a child, and again when he confronts Bane (Tom Hardy) in The Dark Knight Rises. – 87%. But as Bruce’s father and later Alfred put it, the reason people fail is so that we can learn to stand up and it is this stamina and determination that makes him a hero.

Always tell the truth

At the end of Batman: The Dark Knight, Gotham District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) had embarked on a killing streak as the supervillain Two-Face. Faced with this fact, Commissioner Gordon (Gary Oldman) was concerned that the revelation of Dent’s crimes would lead the people of Gotham to lose hope, which would destroy everything that he, Dent, and Batman had tried to accomplish during the course of the movie. Gordon would tell the city that Batman had committed the murders that Dent had committed so that Dent’s memory would remain intact. That was a big mistake. When things are not going well, the best thing to do is to trust people with the truth.

Teamwork is more powerful

While Batman is known to work on his own to fight crime, Nolan’s films have shown us many times that without the help of others, he would not have been able to succeed and save others. On Batman starts, Alfred saves Bruce twice, once from the Scarecrow hallucinogen and after a fire. On Batman: The Dark KnightWithout the help of Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), Bruce would not have been able to find the Joker and without the help of Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) in The Dark Knight rises, Batman would not have been able to defeat Bane, showing us once again that working as a team is more powerful than working individually.

Don’t let failure destroy you

A running theme of Nolan’s Batman trilogy is the idea of ​​failing. It appears in all the movies, like the times when Bruce is trapped in a well or when he is almost killed by the League of Shadows. Bruce Wayne has failed many times, but instead of destroying himself, he has always managed to overcome and overcome the threats he finds in Gotham and, depending on the case, even recover the mantle of Batman. This is also very much in line with other teachings in the trilogy, which try to learn to conquer fears and use failure to achieve success.

Sometimes the truth is hidden under a mask

It’s no wonder superheroes (and villains) wear a mask. In Batman’s case, his bat suit is also one of the most iconic superhero suits of all time, but an integral part of the suit is his mask, which hides his identity and allows someone like Bruce Wayne to fight crime. and become a symbol of hope for your city. In Nolan’s trilogy, the director seems to be trying to say that everyone has their own mask, and that they will only reveal their true self and their true thoughts to the people they love and trust the most.

Actions speak louder than words

To keep his Batman identity a secret, Bruce Wayne kept his image as a millionaire playboy. At one point in Batman Begins, he is seen with two supermodels leaving a restaurant, and everything seems fine until he runs into his childhood friend. The encounter is awkward, but what results is one of Nolan’s most important quotes: “It’s not who you are underneath, it’s what you do that defines you.” This phrase should remind everyone that actions speak louder than words and ultimately define your true self.
