Will ‘Black Panther’ stars dominate the Emmys? ‘Wakanda Forever!’

Will ‘Black Panther’ stars dominate the Emmys? ‘Wakanda Forever!’
Black Panther” has made a whopping $699 million at the Us box office as of this writing. Now a quartet of its stars could dominate the Emmys: Sterling K. Brown, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira and Chadwick Boseman. A rallying cry of “Wakanda Forever” could give them an extra advantage over their competition.

Brown is the reigning Best Drama Actor Emmy champ for his work as Randall Pearson on “This Is Us,” so he may not need as much of a “Black Panther” boost since he’s already predicted to repeat according to our predictions with leading odds of 10/3. However, he’s in a tight race with his onscreen father played by Milo Ventimiglia, who’s breathing down his neck in second place with odds of 9/2. So maybe the success of “Black Panther” could help tip the scales in Brown’s favor. He appears in the film as N’Jobu — the

‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ DVD Review

Stars: Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Giancarlo Esposito, Rosa Salazar, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson | Written by T.S. Nowlin | Directed by Wes Ball

This third and final entry in the Maze Runner franchise gives the Ya series a rousing send-off, stream-lining the books’ overly complex plot in favour of a succession of exciting action set-pieces. It might be a little too long at a posterior-troubling two hours and twenty minutes, but better that than splitting the third part of the trilogy into two movies, like certain other dystopian teen movies we could mention.

To its credit, Maze Runner: The Death Cure assumes audiences are already familiar with the events of 2014′s The Maze Runner and 2015′s The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, because otherwise, what are you doing here in the first place? To that end, the film opens in rip-roaring fashion,

Will ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ be the latest Ryan Murphy production to dominate Best Supporting Actor at the Emmys?

Will ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ be the latest Ryan Murphy production to dominate Best Supporting Actor at the Emmys?
The television academy’s acting branch has a love affair with Ryan Murphy productions, which earn multiple Emmy nominations for their performances year after year. “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” the second installment of Murphy’s “American Crime Story” anthology series, now enters the Emmy race and could dominate the Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor category just like “The Normal Heart” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” did.

Having multiple nominees from the same series or movie can yield mixed results. Before Murphy began his anthology empire Mike Nichols‘s “Angels In America” scored four out of the five available slots for Best Movie/Mini Supporting Actor in 2004: Justin Kirk, Ben Shenkman, Patrick Wilson and Jeffrey Wright were joined by William H. Macy (“Stealing Sinatra”). Macy was unable to stop the “Angels In America” juggernaut, so Wright took home the Emmy for playing Belize and Mr. Lies, the

The Top Five Barry Pepper Movie Roles of his Career

You might not think a lot about Barry Pepper but he’s been around for a while and he’s been one solid supporting actor most of the time while at other times he’s been a lead that just doesn’t get enough credit. He’s a great actor but finding the roles in which he can shine usually means that he’s going to be the support and not the main character. Yet somehow his characters end up being some of the most crucial in the story, meaning that he’s a pillar that can’t be done without. While it’s not the same glory as

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Battlefield Earth

Battlefield Earth was bad, and I mean wretched. Trying to find anyone that really, genuinely liked this movie would be harder than trying to find someone that liked Jar Jar Binks in The Phantom Menace. Oh yeah, I went there because it’s the truth. People genuinely did not like this movie since it pretty much butchered the novel, which was in many ways pretty entertaining and had a much more meaningful ending. John Travolta and Barry Pepper might have played two of the most noted roles but that doesn’t mean much with this stinker. In fact I think people tried

Maze Runner 3 Dethrones Jumanji at the Box Office

Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has dominated at the box office all month long, but, as expected, its reign came to an end this weekend, thanks to 20th Century Fox's The Maze Runner: The Death Cure. While it came in slightly under projections, the third installment in The Maze Runner trilogy based on the books by author James Dashner, took in an estimated $23.5 million, more than enough to take down Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which is still putting up strong numbers in its sixth frame in theaters, dropping just 15.9% to take in $16.4 million.

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure opened in 3,787 theaters, posting a solid $6,205 per-screen average. This movie continues the downward trend for this franchise, as the trilogy comes to an end. The Maze Runner opened in 2014, debuting with a $32.5 million opening weekend, with $102.4 million domestic and $348.3 million worldwide, from just a $34 million budget. The

Movie Review – Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

Maze Runner: The Death Cure, 2018.

Directed by Wes Ball.

Starring Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie Sangster, Will Poulter, Giancarlo Esposito, Patricia Clarkson, Barry Pepper, Ki Hong Lee, Dexter Darden, Kaya Scodelario and Rosa Salazar.

Synopsis:

In the third and final adventure for Thomas and the Gladers, they search to find a cure for the deadly virus known as Flare. This means breaking into the Last City, run by Wckd which rules the post-apocalyptic world. It’s a maze in its own right and it could destroy them all.

There was a time when this third and final outing for the Maze Runner franchise looked cursed and destined to gather dust. It was April 2016 when, just days after filming started, star Dylan O’Brien was in an on-set accident and sustained serious injuries. Production was shut down indefinitely and everything went on hold. It took six months before he felt ready to return to acting,

Film Review: ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ Has Run Out of Life

Chicago – The third part of the “Maze Runner” trilogy is called “The Death Cure,” and that cure best describes the faint pulse of this run-out-of-steam dystopia aimed at “young adults.” It is mostly warring and not much more, except for a stab (literally) at misplaced emotion.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

The trilogy started out with promise, as they are based on a novel series by James Dashner. The first film had a drawing-back-the-curtain effect, promising that perhaps the strange maze our heroes had to go through was some sort of mind experiment. But by the second film, that effect turned into a literal and bizarre adventure in a post-apocalyptic world, a kiddie “Mad Max.” The third installment continues the second film concept, and ups the ante. More big bang effects, more guns, more 20-year-olds-portraying-teenagers-as-virus-survivalists, and less of anything to really latch onto. This is the Maze Runner film for completists only.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure – Review

It’s kind of a slow month at the movies, so join me in a cinema experiment (cue Kenneth Strickfaden’s sparking, buzzing Frankenstein lab equipment). That’s because this weekend’s new flick is a real rarity for this time of year: a franchise entry. To be more precise, it’s the third part of a trilogy based upon (oh oh) a popular series of young adult novels (that sends a chill up my spine, only matched by the name “Nicholas Sparks”). And its setting is a most familiar backdrop for such stories, a dystopian future. The first one came out in 2014, followed a year later by the middle entry. But why the nearly three-year wait? Being “heavy” on the action stunts, the leading man was injured on the set, forcing a lengthy shut down. Will this derail its momentum? Well, generally January is the “multiplex graveyard” where franchise flicks come to die.

Second Opinion – Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018)

Maze Runner: The Death Cure, 2018.

Directed by Wes Ball.

Starring Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Aidan Gillen, Will Poulter, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Giancarlo Esposito, Ki Hong Lee, Katherine McNamara, Walton Goggins, Nathalie Emmanuel, Barry Pepper, Jacob Lofland, Dexter Darden, Paul Lazenby, and Patricia Clarkson.

Synopsis:

Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the “Flare”.

Piecing together plotting in young adult fiction is a puzzle aimed at six-year olds. There’s a chosen one; often an orphan/an outsider/amnesiac who obtains/is born with something with which a malevolent organisation/force/individual has to obtain/kill in order to create/halt destruction/peace through destruction.

With that, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the much-delayed finale to the middling Ya franchise, once again falls under the paradigm of by the numbers youth fiction. In fact, its plot – a baffling, incessantly
