Welcome to our biweekly appointment where we update you on the most important news from the world of cinema. Several important and highly anticipated movies such as Black Adam and Amsterdam have been released during this period. Between strange indictments, flops and upcoming news, we advise you not to miss this biweekly column for anything in the world.
Henry Cavill will return as Superman
After seeing “Black Adam” we can be fairly certain that the Superman we love will return. Unfortunately, even for those who have not seen the movie this is no longer a secret, since the actor himself announced the news on social media. As The Rock rightly said, this is a very important factor because it denotes that now the DC Universe will listen much more to the fans than before. Of course, they will not be able to grant every wish, but at least it seems like they are learning from their previous mistakes.
Kanye West accused Tarantino of stealing his idea for Django
Kanye West is not someone who can be considered aligned with a certain American progressive thought. In fact, every month a new controversy arises because of him commenting controversially on so many topics such as Black Lives Matter and many others. Not so long ago he jumped into the spotlight again by saying something rather interesting.
According to Kanye West, the idea for “Django”, Quentin Tarantino‘s 2012 movie starring DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and many others, was in fact the rapper’s idea. West stated that he himself had proposed the subject of the movie to the “Pulp Fiction” filmmaker, originally as an idea for a video clip. Apparently, Tarantino used that idea to make “Django” years later, without telling him. The idea was the following: “a freed slave (played by Foxx) works with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to rescue his wife from a plantation.”
Of course, we don’t really know the details of the conversation, but West has likely forgotten the fact that there was already a film titled “Django” in 1966, directed by Sergio Corbucci.
Amsterdam is getting poor reviews by critics and audiences alike
David O. Russell is a director much loved by audiences and critics for his past films, yet he seems to lack the same polish as before. All in all, the filmmaker’s trademarks can be seen in every film and his writing is recognizable, yet the critical response is less and less enthusiastic about his work. “Accidental Love” from 2015 is a film no one remembers, and even those who do, it’s probably because of its troubled production. “Amsterdam”, his latest work, is getting very low reviews by both critics and audiences, despite its star-studded cast including Margot Robbie, John David Washington and Christian Bale.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania got its first trailer
“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”, arriving in 2023, is promising a familiar journey in a never-before-seen scenario. Directed by Peyton Reed, it is the third installment featuring the two superheroes Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne (Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly), who can shrink as small as – you guessed it – an ant and a wasp. This entry seems like typical “heroes’ journey” flick, similar to movies like the “Center of the Earth” starring Brendan Fraser. It will be interesting to see how the filmmaker will work on this thread without neglecting the requirements of a Marvel movie.
From the previews, we know that the story delves more deeply into the character of Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton), the – now teenage daughter – of Scott, a character who will prove pivotal in confronting the villain Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) from a distant time. The three superheroes will go on an exploration of the Quantum Realm, in an adventure that will take them to meet new and strange creatures, venturing beyond the limits of human imagination.
