Gladiator 2” was first announced in November 2018, and producers Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald assure fans of the swords-and-sandal action movie that a follow-up is still gearing up for production. The producers were asked by HeyUGuys about the next “Gladiator” installment and revealed, “We’re working with Ridley. That’s one we wouldn’t touch unless we felt in a way to do it was legitimate. We’re working with an amazing writer as well — Peter Craig.”

Parkes added an intriguing new detail about the script: “It picks up the story 30 years later…25 years later.”

The original report on “Gladiator 2” mentioned the sequel would focus on Lucius, the son of Connie Nielsen’s character Lucilla from Scott’s original film. Lucius is the nephew of Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus, the Roman leader killed by Russell Crowe’s Maximus. Crowe’s character died at the end of the first

Exclusive: Sarah Paulson on the ‘iconic’ world of Glass for M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable Trilogy Finale

M. Night Shyamalan’s twist endings became his trademark following the global success of The Sixth Sense in 1999. His next film, Unbreakable, in 2000 cemented his reputation as rug-puller in chief when it also featured a dramatic reveal at the climax. Fans of David Dunn and his nemesis Mr. Glass (Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson respectively) wanted more, and the director commented at the time that the film was set up to be the first of a trilogy. It took many years for this promised trilogy to come to light, but when it did the reveal came in true Shyamalan fashion.

The final moments of 2016’s Split were audacious in their revelation. This film about a serial killer with a split personality was a secret sequel to Unbreakable, and there was more to come. This year James McAvoy’s Beast, Willis’ Dunn and Jackson’s Mr. Glass came together for

UglyDolls Star Janelle Monáe on Sharing Love: "We Are One Living, Breathing Organism"

Janelle Monáe has cultivated a liberated disposition in Hollywood and the music industry. She's bubbly, she's black, she's queer, she's herself - and she doesn't want to be anything else. But it hasn't always been easy for Monáe to embrace who she is. Like many of us, the 33-year-old singer and actress has struggled with self-confidence and is in a constant process of learning to fully love herself. Thanks to pure dedication and music, she's become much more comfortable within her own skin.

"Self-love starts inward. If you don't love you, I don't think you could ever really love anybody else," Monáe told Popsugar over the phone on April 16. It's this message of self-love that allowed Monáe to connect so well with her character Mandy in the upcoming film UglyDolls.

‘UglyDolls’ Film Review: You’ve Seen This Toy Story Before

‘UglyDolls’ Film Review: You’ve Seen This Toy Story Before
Doubling as both a colorful recycling bin for tropes and ideas from a variety of preexisting children animated features and a casting session for “The Voice”‘s next batch of hosts, Kelly Asbury’s plush-inspired film “UglyDolls” is underscored by a well-intentioned message of self-acceptance, even if the delivery vehicle is unremarkable.

Developed from a story by Robert Rodriguez and written by newcomer Alison Peck, this musical adventure about misshapen plush dolls that were rejected by quality control in a toy factory is as energetic as its mechanics are perplexing. Sure, one must give in to the fantastical elements in films of this kind, but some of the plot details in this mashup production (“Toy Story” + “Monsters Inc.” + a generic stage show) are as visibly defective as its heroes but much less huggable.

M. Night Shaymalan's Glass Gets the Honest Trailers Lashing

M. Night Shaymalan’s Glass may have not been met with the best reviews, but I loved it! I don’t care what anyone says, that was a great movie and a great conclusion to what the director started with Unbreakable in 2000.

That being said, I still did get a kick out of this Honest Trailer for it. The Screen Junkies gave it quite an amusing lashing as they tore it apart and highlighted several aspects of the film that I’m sure many of you have already noticed. They just point them out in a funny and entertaining way.

One of the many things pointed out is Bruce Willis doing as little as you’d expect, Samuel L. Jackson not doing much at all, and James McAvoy doing everything else! “But when these three finally get together, they’ll go toe to toe, in scene after scene of intense…

The poor reviews for Glass made M. Night Shyamalan cry

M. Night Shyamalan, the director of 2019’s Glass, has revealed that the film’s poor reviews evoked a strong emotional response in him.

When news broke that iconic director M. Night Shyamalan would be making a sequel to Unbreakable and Split, a lot of fans were very excited. Unfortunately, the reviews for the film upon release were less than stellar.

This is something that Shyamalan found particularly tough, as he explains during a lecture at NYU’s Stern School of Business (via Indiewire):

“I was in London when I heard the U.S. reviews for Glass were poor. I was in a makeup chair for a TV show, and I cried. We’d just come back from the London screenings, which were through the roof. We had only great screenings of the movie around the world. So essentially I wasn’t prepared. I had this false sense of being

Glass’ Negative Reviews Made M. Night Shyamalan Cry

Poor M. Night Shyamalan can’t catch a break, can he? To say that the director of Glass has had a tumultuous, up-and-down career within the Hollywood machine would be quite an understatement. Unfortunately, things seem to be on a bit of a downturn for the hit-or-miss director once again after the poor critical reception of his most recent blockbuster, and he took it harder than normal.

During a lecture at the Stern School of business at NYU this week, Shyamalan said that he was in London, in a make-up chair, when he heard the bad news about Glass. “I cried,” he said. “We had great screenings of the movie around the world, so essentially, I wasn’t prepared,” the director continues. He would go on to say how “distraught” he was that day. “Honestly, I was feeling like, ‘Will they ever let me be different without throwing me on the garbage pile?

Glass Bashing Reviews Brought M. Night Shyamalan to Tears

Glass Bashing Reviews Brought M. Night Shyamalan to Tears
M. Night Shyamalan admits the negative reviews for Glass made him cry. Shyamalan quickly rose to prominence with 1999's The Sixth Sense and was hailed as the next Steven Spielberg. However, things changed just as quickly with 2006's Lady in the Water, which was a disaster. Things started to pick up again for the director with the release of 2016's Split, which saw Shyamalan getting the best reviews since The Sixth Sense. Pressure was mounting for Glass and the director was sure he was continuing his good luck streak after a string of positive and enthusiastic screenings.

Glass was released earlier this year and instantly torn to shreds by critics. M. Night Shyamalan appeared at NYU's Stern School of Business at a Scholar-in-Residence lecture earlier this week and told the story of finding out his latest movie was getting torched. The movie was a box office success, but it was

M. Night Shyamalan Says Bad Reviews of ‘Glass’ Made Him Cry

M. Night Shyamalan Says Bad Reviews of ‘Glass’ Made Him Cry
With the release of “Split,” M. Night Shyamalan saw his best reviews since the 1999 breakout “The Sixth Sense.” As the surprise sequel to 2000’s “Unbreakable,” the 2016 “Split” won over many critics who had become skeptical of his bumpy filmography. But when he completed his trilogy with the January 2109 release of “Glass,” Shyamalan found himself in a familiar place.

“I was in London when I heard the U.S. reviews for ‘Glass’ were poor,” Shyamalan told the NYU’s Stern School of Business, where he delivered the 2019 Ashok C. Sani Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence lecture April 16. “I was in a makeup chair for a TV show, and I cried.”

While “Glass” made nearly $250 million worldwide, it landed the director some of his worst reviews (Rotten Tomatoes: 37%). The filmmaker has always been sensitive to criticism, but he also shared his ability to contend with the backlash, and offered advice for uncertain film students in the room.
