Cate Blanchett Is Cheesy as Hell in Thor: Ragnarok, but It Totally Works

  • BuzzSugar
There are a lot of reasons to be excited about Thor: Ragnarok. Based on the trailers, we can swoon over Thor's new haircut, a somehow more-handsome-than-before Hulk, and the sweet swagger of our old pal Loki. That's all fine and dandy, but in my opinion, the most exciting detail about the third Thor movie is the inclusion of Cate Blanchett. This Oscar-winning actress is a jack of all trades: she's shined in dramas like Carol and Blue Jasmine and fantasies like Lord of the Rings. But when it comes to her role as an evil character, there's an added level of delight. The iconic actress joins the fold as Hela, the eldest daughter of Odin and sister of Thor and Loki. Oh, and she's also the goddess of death. RelatedWhat Those 2 Postcredits Scenes in Thor: Ragnarok Mean What is it about an evil Cate Blanchett that really sucks me in?

Harrison Ford Hasn't Been Better in Years

Harrison Ford Hasn't Been Better in Years
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Blade Runner 2049.]

Though he has a vast filmography, Harrison Ford is largely defined by three characters he portrayed in the early 1980s: Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Rick Deckard. This trio of heroic figures share some DNA aside from the man who plays them, but what those roles have in common now is that Ford is has been revisiting them. In 2008, after a nearly two-decade hiatus, the actor donned the fedora and held the whip again in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Two years ago, he stepped back...

Terminator 6: why franchise-building is its biggest enemy

Ryan Lambie Sep 27, 2017

The Terminator series is making its third attempt at a trilogy. But would it be better as a one-off story, Ryan wonders...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for all the Terminator films released so far.

Genisys probably seemed like a good idea at the time. After the so-so critical and financial performance of Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation, the fifth entry in the series would, as far as its producers were concerned, take the saga back to its glory days: the nightmarish chases of The Terminator and the eye-popping special effects of T2, widely regarded as the franchise's high-water mark.

Will Marion Ravenwood Return in Indiana Jones 5?

Will Marion Ravenwood Return in Indiana Jones 5?
The Indiana Jones 5 story is finished, but details are being kept under tight lock and key until further drafts of the screenplay can be hammered out and perfected. We know for certain that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Dr. Henry Jones Jr. We also know that there is no way the franchise is bringing back Shia Labeouf and his character Mutt Williams. But one lingering question does remain. Will we see the return of Marion Ravenwood, played by the ravishing Karen Allen?

It makes sense that we'd see her in some capacity. She first debuted in Raiders of the Lost Ark way back in 1981. And no other female character in the franchise has ever been able to carry the same kind of torch. Ravenwood did turn back up in the last installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. She didn't just put in a cameo,

‘Indiana Jones 5’ Won’t Bring Back Shia Labeouf’s Mutt, Screenwriter Says
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” ended with the tease that Shia Labeouf‘s character, Henry “Mutt” Jones III, may take up his father’s job as a globe-trotting, whip-slinging archeologist. But David Koepp, screenwriter for the fifth “Indiana Jones” movie, says his script will be 100 percent Mutt-free. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Koepp said that the next Indy film will have the same format as the others — with Harrison Ford playing Indy as he searches for an artifact with immense power — but noted that “the Shia Labeouf character is not in the film.” Koepp...

One of the burning questions on everyone’s lips is whether Shia Labeouf‘s character is going to be in the next Indiana Jones movie, which is currently being written by David Koepp. Well, the screenwriter has been speaking with Entertainment Weekly and has stated that Mutt Williams, who Labeouf played in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, will definitely not be returning.

Shia Labeouf Won’t Return for ‘Indiana Jones 5’

  • Collider.com
In a surprise to probably no one, Indiana Jones 5 will not be Indiana Jones and the Adventures of Indy and Mutt. Indeed, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford’s return to the franchise with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull introduced Shia Labeouf’s Mutt as Indy’s long-lost son, conceived with Karen Allen’s Marion Ravenwood, and the film’s ending even had a nod towards Mutt picking up the whip and hat if/when Indy decides to retire. But in speaking with EW, writer David Koepp—who’s penning the screenplay for Indiana Jones …

Indiana Jones 5 Has a Script, Shia Labeouf's Mutt Won't Return

Indiana Jones 5 Has a Script, Shia Labeouf's Mutt Won't Return
Fans who hated Shia Labeouf's Mutt Williams in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull can breath a sigh of relief. The character will not return, played by Labeouf or otherwise. A script has been completed for the movie, and is currently undergoing rewrites. No set start date has been announced, but screenwriter David Koepp assures Entertainment Weekly that the process is humming along quiet nicely.

Koepp won't reveal whether or not Indiana Jones will get a true protege, as Disney plans to reboot the franchise. It's believed that Disney and Lucasfilm are looking to reignite this title as a viable new series, though after Indiana Jones 5, neither Harrison Ford nor director Steven Spielberg will be back. So how it continues is anyone's guess at this point. Just know it won't be the continuing adventures of Mutt. Says Koepp.

Indiana Jones 5 : Shia Labeouf's Mutt Williams Will Not Be Part Of The Film.

  • LRM Online
For fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, the last film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was met with heavy criticism. Besides the fact that folks didn't care too much for the aliens in the film, another aspect that annoyed fans was Shia Labeouf's Mutt Williams. The character was revealed to be the son of Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood, but he never seemed to really fit into the franchise, and left most fans bitter. Screenwriter of the yet-untitled fifth Indiana Jones installment, David Koepp, gave fans some relief while speaking with Entertainment Weekly.

“Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say… and the Shia Labeouf character is not in the film. We’re plugging away at it. In terms of when we would start, I think that’s up to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Ford… I know we’ve got a script we’re mostly happy with.

The Temple of Doom is Steven Spielberg’s least favourite Indiana Jones movie

If you ask any Indiana Jones fans for their least favourite instalment of the action-adventure franchise, you’d be hard pressed to get any other responses that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Unless you ask Steven Spielberg, it seems.

According to Susan Lacy, director of the upcoming documentary Spielberg, the legendary filmmaker has revealed that out of all four instalments in the series, he likes the 1984 prequel Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom the least. Spielberg apparently also acknowledges some mistakes he made with the World War II comedy 1941, which is widely regarded as one of the lowest (if not the lowest) points of a rather stellar career.

You’ll be able to see Steven Spielberg discussing his career in the documentary when it premiers on HBO on October 7th, while Spielberg is also set to reunite with Harrison Ford for a fifth Indiana Jones movie,

‘The Color Purple’ Passes The Bechdel Test, But How Many Other Steven Spielberg Movies Do?

‘The Color Purple’ Passes The Bechdel Test, But How Many Other Steven Spielberg Movies Do?
Steven Spielberg is the most famous filmmaker in the world, so it was only a matter of time before his lengthy filmography was scrutinized by 21st century standards. The Bechdel test was going to find him eventually.

The Bechdel test — coined by graphic novelist Alison Bechdel, it calls for a movie to have at least two named woman characters, who speak to each other about something other than a man — has its flaws, but it’s a simple, quantifiable way to measure whether a movie’s portrayal of women is credible. It’s not an issue that would have come up for Spielberg when he launched his career nearly 50 years ago, but times have changed.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (aka Dead Men Tell No Tales) movie review: yo ho no

MaryAnn’s quick take… The franchise finally overstays its welcome with this cacophony of CGI spectacle, a contrived and confusing plot, and a newly cruel and stupid Jack Sparrow. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the original trilogy…

I’m “biast” (con): …but started to lose a little patience with the fourth film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Okay, make it stop. This amusement-park ride has gone on long enough. It is no longer any fun. I’m feeling a bit nauseated, in fact.

I adored the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy: they were smart, fun popcorn flicks that worked as clever updates on the classic Hollywood swashbuckler, all adventure and movie-movie romance and total, wonderful nonsense. With the third installment, 2007’s At World’s End, the series even managed to whip up some satirical zing, in its plot about gig-economy independent-contractor pirates versus

Is the Alien franchise exhausted?

Anghus Houvouras on whether the Alien franchise is exhausted…

Is the reason almost every Alien movie since the original has been, at best, a mixed bag because the premise has been exhausted?

I thought about this the other day as I watched a slew of Alien: Covenant reviews pour in. Like Prometheus, it seems to be getting the kind of safe critical treatment a veteran filmmaker like Sir Ridley Scott has supposedly earned. Currently Alien: Covenant is at 76% on Rotten Tomatoes. (Prometheus ended up at 72%). Those 75% ranges on Rotten Tomatoes are quite telling, especially when it comes to established, well-renowned talent. Last year Steven Spielberg’s gigantic boring Thud The Bfg ended up at 75%. Most of Spielberg’s sub-par output end up in the mid 70’s: War Horse 75%, War of the Worlds = 75%, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull = 77%, The Adventures of Tintin = 75%. The mid-seventies for a veteran

Indiana Jones 5 Release Pushes Back One Of Marvel’s Mystery 2020 Movies

Yesterday, Disney unleashed a wave of new release dates for everything from Star Wars Episode IX to The Lion King, but something you may have missed amidst all the excitement is the fact that one of Marvel’s Phase 4 movies – if there is indeed a Phase 4 – has now been delayed.

Originally set to be released on July 10th, 2020, it’s now arriving on August 7th, 2020 instead. That’s because the fifth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise has taken that July slot. Why? Well, an official reason hasn’t been revealed, but chances are that Disney wants to give the movie more time to play to summer audiences in order to ensure that it does strong box office business. After all, it’s clear that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has reduced interest in the series while Marvel films, on the other hand, are a hit
