Dwayne Johnson shared the news Friday on Instagram, saying production just ended on the “most challenging film” he’s ever done.
“Hobbs & Shaw is officially wrapped,” Johnson wrote. “Easily the most challenging film I’ve ever produced and starred in, however based on the fans’ insanely hyped ‘break the internet’ reactions to our first trailer — this film is also shaping up to be my most rewarding.”
The wrestler-turned-box office heavyweight went on to praise co-star Jason Statham for joining him on the adventure.
“A Huge bald and brotherly Mahalo to the man who trusted me and our chemistry and ‘pushed all his chips in’ to make something bad ass and fun for the fans. My uso @jasonstatham,” he added.

The Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize went to François Ozon’s French drama “By the Grace of God,” a fact-based account of the Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal behind the ongoing trial of Philippe Barbarin, the archbishop of Lyon.
Accepting the award, Lapid said “Synonyms,” which stars Tom Mercier, would likely be considered “scandalous” in Israel and France – the pic skewers stereotypes from both nations – but added that it was ultimately a celebration.
In his review in Variety, Jay Weissberg wrote that the film takes “a Kalashnikov to the nation’s military culture and its carefully nurtured persecution complex.”
Thanking the Berlinale for selecting his film, Ozon said he did not know whether addressing child sexual abuse
Ganz's management confirmed that the Swiss actor died Friday evening at his home in Zurich following a long illness.
Ganz was an iconic figure in the German-speaking world and beyond, his gravely, Swiss-accented voice as instantly recognizable as his mercurial style, which could shift from reserved and withdrawn to volcanic in an instant.

“We thank you for your show of respect for the hard-working members of the film community, whose dedication and exceptional talents deserve the public recognition this reversal now allows them to enjoy,” said American Society of Cinematographers president Kees van Osstrom, who spearheaded the opposition.
“The honor offered by the Academy Awards is vital to validating the claim that everyone contributing to the making of a motion picture is an artist,” he added.
Van Oostrum and three other ASC members — Hoyte van Hoytema, Rachel Morrison and Emmanuel Lubezki — met Thursday night with Dawn Hudson, CEO of the Academy, and Academy president John Bailey to press their case. The controversy had exploded when AMPAS announced Monday that the portions of the awards for four categories — cinematography, film editing,

The “Empire” actor said he was attacked in the early hours of January 29 by men who shouted homophobic and racial slurs at him, tied a rope around his neck, poured an unknown substance on him, and said they were in “Maga Country,” short for Make America Great Again.

“Alita,” the cyberpunk CGI spectacle, earned $27 million when it debuted in 3,790 locations and $33 million over the four-day frame. Since opening on Thursday, the movie has generated $41 million at the domestic market. It came in slightly ahead of expectations heading into the weekend, but “Alita: Battle Angel” still has a lengthy uphill battle to become profitable. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron, the Japanese manga adaptation cost over $170 million to produce — and that’s not including the tens of millions spent in marketing.
With that said, it looks like the studio made the right decision pushing back “Alita’s” release date. Fox originally intended
The ending of “The Umbrella Academy” Season 1 is such a cliffhanger that all it’s missing is a person literally hanging off a cliff. Its dramatic conclusion involves the end of the world, though the show’s core ensemble — a group of struggling young people with superpowers — may have managed to escape the cataclysm through time travel.
What happens next to all of these characters is unclear, at least to those who haven’t read the comic book series created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bà, upon which the show is based. This meant that when it came to constructing the end of the season, showrunner Steve Blackman knew there was a chance that those final moments could be the last of the show. However, he told IndieWire, “I hope we get a second and third and fourth season, but I knew that having a great
Host: Don Cheadle
How did Don Cheadle do as a first-time host? Well, not only does Cheadle give an actual comedic monologue — honestly, one who didn’t know him might think he’s a stand-up comedian — he reminds everyone he was in an episode of “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” while doing so. Cheadle is a man who commits when he’s in a project, whether it
The night of the Oscars ceremony – which was first held 90 years ago this May – is the one essential date in the movie world calendar, the giddy, glamorous apex of industry celebration. It’s fascinating and infuriating. But the Academy Awards don’t always get it right. In fact, on many now infamous occasions, they got it totally wrong.
Giving How Green Was My Valley best picture over Citizen Kane, for example. But while there is always going to be debate over whether the best picture actually won best picture – merit is a difficult thing to quantify, after all – each year’s top prize winner and, perhaps more importantly, the reaction to it, tells us something about the cultural zeitgeist.
A couple of months ago, Keeley Hawes was in the Wolseley on London’s Piccadilly, about to have lunch, when she saw a familiar face across the room. She was meeting her husband, the actor Matthew Macfadyen. “I went, ‘My God, it’s Amber Rudd,’” she whispers. In the television juggernaut that was BBC One’s Bodyguard, Hawes was Julia Montague, the ill-fated home secretary who took no nonsense, though she took a shine to her security detail, played by Richard Madden. She had researched Rudd for the role, and the similarities did not go unnoticed. But the pair were yet to meet.
Rudd had been complimentary about Hawes
Taking its inspiration from a posthumous 2012 Vanity Fair profile by Marie Brenner, this narrative feature debut from celebrated documentary-maker Matthew Heineman casts Rosamund Pike as the renowned American journalist Marie Colvin, who risked her life to report from the front line, and seven years ago paid the ultimate price. “Why is the world not here?” was Colvin’s repeated question as she ventured into the most deadly – and often overlooked – areas of conflict. The answer seems simple: where Colvin felt an unstoppable need to witness and report on “the truth”, others often feared to follow.
Heineman’s film opens and closes in Homs, the besieged Syrian city that Colvin memorably described as “a ghost town, echoing with the sound of shelling and the crack
