Disney's Jungle Cruise Is Said To Be Dwayne Johnson's Indiana Jones Movie

Director Jaume Collet-Serra and Dwayne Johnson are currently prepping up to start shooting Disney's Jungle Cruise in Atlanta. We don't really have a lot of details on the film other than that it is based on Disneyland's classic adventure ride. 

Cb recently had the opportunity to Jake Morrison, who is the visual effects supervisor on the film and he gave a little insight into what the film will entail. The most important thing that he mentioned was that this will be Johnson's Indiana Jones film.

"I mean I've got to say, I'm incredibly excited about the whole thing, it's really like Dwayne is in a new Indiana Jones film. It's Dwayne at his best, and that is a man with some severe charisma. And then we're putting him on this huge adventure, and they've just literally announced the female lead in the picture is Emily Blunt. So, we're really excited.

Shazad Latif on the Voyage From ‘Star Trek’ to the World of Online Jihadism

Shazad Latif on the Voyage From ‘Star Trek’ to the World of Online Jihadism
Back from his maiden voyage as Starfleet officer Ash Tyler on “Star Trek: Discovery,” British actor Shazad Latif has boldly gone into the strange new world of online jihadist recruitment in Timur Bekmambetov’s “Profile.”

The film, which screens in the Berlinale’s Panorama section, is based on French journalist Anna Erelle’s book “In the Skin of a Jihadist,” about her investigation into the recruitment of young women by Isis. It chronicles the online relationship between a British reporter, played by Valene Kane, and Latif’s character, a charismatic Londoner-turned-terrorist in Syria.

“Profile” is the latest in a growing number of “screenshare films” that Bekmambetov has championed, including this year’s thriller “Search,” which present vérité storytelling set entirely on the screens of digital devices.

For Latif, it was an opportunity to work with Bekmambetov, whom he describes as “visionary” and “very good at creating mini-genres.” It was also a chance to explore a “very weird love

‘Your Move’ DVD Review

Stars: Luke Goss, Robert Davi, Patricia De Leon, David Fernandez Jr., Jeanette Samano, Luis Gatica, Alain Mora, Barbarella Pardo, Denitza García, Tonya Bordeaux, Zokai Holmes, Laura Martin, Jordan Simkovic, Mopar Murray | Written and Directed by Luke Goss

Former pop star turned actor Luke Goss has had an interesting post-pop career, carving his own path in Hollywood, appearing in a number of action movies since his star-making turn in Blade 2. He has put in some great performances in a bevy of direct-to-market action movies (in particular the two Death Race sequels); and that’s despite any shortcomings said movies may have had! Though to be fair Goss’ schtick: smouldering good looks and a quiet demeanour, hiding a hard man of action hero proportions – goes a Long way in these types of genre films.

However with Your Move, Goss not only appears in front of the camera as the films star, but

2018 Oscars: Does Best Picture champ have to win an acting award first?

2018 Oscars: Does Best Picture champ have to win an acting award first?
The Shape of Water” numbers three acting bids among its leading 13 Academy Awards nominations for lead Sally Hawkins and supporting players Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer. According to our exclusive Oscar odds none of them is predicted to win on March 4. Should that scenario play out, does that mean that their film won’t win Best Picture?

Not so fast.

While 53 of the 89 Best Picture champs to date include an Oscar-winning performance, 36 of them (40%) did not win any acting awards. And among those three dozen winners are four of the eight films — “The Hurt Locker” (2009), “Argo” (2012), “Birdman” (2015) and “Spotlight” (2016) — decided by preferential ballot under the newly expanded slate of Best Picture nominees.

Surprisingly, an even dozen of the Best Picture winners did not even reap any acting nominations. That is welcome news for “Arrival,” which does not number an acting bid among its eight nominations. However, four of those films

Meryl Streep in ‘One True Thing’: A look back at her 11th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome

Meryl Streep in ‘One True Thing’: A look back at her 11th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 11 of the 21-part Gold Derby series Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

The latter half of the 1990s found Meryl Streep struggling to find a proper follow-up to her sublime, Oscar-nominated turn in “The Bridges of Madison County” (1995).

First, there was “Before and After” (1996), a sleepy collaboration with filmmaker Barbet Schroeder and leading man Liam Neeson. The picture, among Streep’s worst box office performers to date, was out of theaters within a month.

A bit more successful was “Marvin’s Room” (1996), a family drama that at last paired Streep with Diane Keaton, plus Hume Cronyn, Gwen Verdon and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film garnered modest reviews and box office receipts upon opening that December and it was ultimately Keaton,

‘Tad The Lost Explorer’ & The Mythological Locations in Film

Mythical cities and locations have intrigued historians, scientists and humankind for centuries. Did they exist? Where did these stories come from? Well, whether we’ve found any real-life evidence related to these legendary locations, films have explored these in great depth over the years. One such film is Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas; Midas was a revered king in Greek mythology in which he had the power to turn everything he touched to gold. To celebrate the release of the film in cinemas on the 9th February we’ve looked at movies that include some of these widely speculated wondrous locations.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire

“…in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea.” Maybe one of the more famous mythical locations in history, Atlantis was first introduced to us by Plato in his Timaeus and Critias works.

‘Black Panther’ Review: Dir. Ryan Coogler (2018)

Black Panther review: Ryan Coogler kicks off Marvel’s 2018 with one of the most anticipated movies in the studio’s epic series of superhero films.

Black Panther review by Paul Heath.

Black Panther review

Marvel Studios’ first film (of three) set to be released in 2018 is the one with the most expectation. First off, there’s the director and co-writer Ryan Coogler, the 31-year-old helming a $200 million movie as his third feature (following the flawless Fruitvale Station and the outstanding Creed), then there’s the fact that this is the first McU movie post-Thor: Ragnarok from Taika Waititi, a film, for me, that switched up the successful Marvel formula somewhat with its wonderful off-beat humour and unique charm.

There have been waves of horn blowing from across the pond too with the U.S. critics lauding it as the best Marvel movie yet, and then there’s been the
