I remember like it was yesterday: 15 years old, seeing a trio of films at my local theater twenty years ago. This particular day the trip consisted of Anaconda, Austin Powers, and my favorite of the three, Luc Besson‘s original space saga, The Fifth Element. Now, two decades later Besson wrote and directed another new space adventure, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and to get crowds ready, The Fifth Element is returning to theaters thanks to Fathom Events and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The first trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk from two-time Academy Award winning Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Brokeback Mountain, and Life of Pi director Ang Lee has been released online by Sony Pictures.
The movie, which is based on the book of the same name from author Ben Fountain, follows Billy Lynn who is being celebrated with some fellow soldiers during the halftime show of a football game after a battle in Iraq. It stars newcomer Joe Alwyn as Billy Lynn, as well as Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin.
Check out the trailer for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk along with a synopsis below.
One of the reasons why Rush Hour 3 couldn’t match its predecessors on a comedic level, is because a lot of the jokes seemed like they were rehashed, dated, or just pulled from the bin of unused Rush Hour jokes. So Arthur Sarkissian would like to alleviate that problem by making Rush Hour 4.
According to him, the fourth Rush Hour will be “more gritty.” Yes, the one word that almost everyone dreads when they hear filmmakers say it, has been brought up, and it’s for a Rush Hour sequel.
Deadline is reporting, and subsequently confirming rumors, that there is indeed a fourth feature being worked on in the Friday franchise. The news first broke when actor Tiny Lister revealed that he’s beginning to chat with Ice Cube to get moving on a fourth film in the franchise, which Cube is currently in talks with New Line to write, produce, and star in, with the possibility of also directing.
What’s the greatest thing in the world during the holiday season time period when absolutely no exciting news is being reported? Well, a super-duper new fan made piece of art work in which some of the beloved and soon-to-be-returning characters of the ultra-popular animated series Futurama are used in a spoof of the also-popular science fiction film, The Fifth Element…naturally!
The image takes the lead Bruce Willis character and replaces him with Philip J. Fry; the Milla Jovovich character and replaces her with Amy Wong; and the Chris Tucker character is replaced by Professor Hubert Farnsworth. Lesser bits of the movie like the singing blue chick are replaced by Leela…and yes, Bender does make a cameo.
