Jungle Cruise: Dwayne Johnson Lobbying For Wonder Woman’s Patty Jenkins To Get Behind The Wheel

27 April 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off his turn as the larger-than-life Luke Hobbs in The Fate of the Furious – a performance that seemingly warranted a spinoff movie involving his former DEA agent and Deckard Shaw, the volatile loose cannon played by Jason StathamDwayne Johnson is already beginning to make headway on another project: Jungle Cruise.

With a script now in place – J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are the brains behind the latest draft – Johnson officially climbed on board the long-brewing Disney actioner three weeks ago, when it was revealed that the Mouse House is targeting a production start in the early stages of 2018. That means the search for a director to get behind the wheel of Jungle Cruise is well underway, and it seems that Dwayne Johnson already has someone in mind. As part of AP’s The Big Story (via Collider) on Patty Jenkins’ foray into the DC Extended Universe, the »

Into the Badlands Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Palm of the Iron Fox

Daddy's home, and boy is he pissed!

On Into the Badlands Season 2 Episode 4, we had some major Shakespearean drama afoot, right out of King Lear. Ryder the dick met his end (Yes!) at the hands of daddy Quinn, and I for one am very happy. 

I'm not a fan At All of the Quinn family, especially Ryder.

I do hate Quinn's terrible accent, but at least he's a compelling character.

Ryder was just a one-note jerk, and the actor was awful Imo. 

The world was better without you. You should have stayed dead.

Just like Willy Shakespeare said in King Lear, "How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child! Away, away!"

The only thing sharper? Quinn's sword, evidently, as he gutted his thankless son.

I guess this means Quinn is back as the Baron. »

'Beauty and the Beast' to Repeat at #1 Over 'Power Rangers', 'Life' and 'CHiPs'

23 March 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

As has been the case over the last three weekends, this weekend is looking to outperform last year and, once again, by a significant margin. The big story, of course, is Disney's Beauty and the Beast as it continues to blow the doors off, becoming one of the fastest films to top $200 million at the domestic box office and, by the end of this weekend, will have topped $300 million in just ten days of release. In addition to Beauty and the Beast's second weekend, three new wide releases make their debut including Lionsgate's Power Rangers, Sony's R-rated sci-fi Life and WB's R-rated comedy CHiPs, all of which will have varying degrees of success as the top twelve should top a combined $180 million, making it the second largest weekend of the year. As of Wednesday, Disney's Beauty and the Beast has brought in $217.6 million domestically and another $244.3 million internationally. This »
