Dwayne Johnson Teases DC Cameos in Black Adam and Shooting Will Start in 2019

Dwayne Johnson recently sat down with FilmStarts for an interview and it's was there he revealed that Black Adam could start shooting in early 2019. He also teased that some DC characters will appear in the film. When talking about when the film would start shooting, he said:

"With Black Adam I don’t think we’re going to start early next year. Early next year right now it looks like I’m going to be shooting Jumanji, and then after that if everything goes well I’ll shoot a movie called Red Notice with Rawson Thurber again, with Gal Gadot, and another actor yet to be named. But Black Adam possibly at the end of next year. It’s coming along great, the script is coming along great we’re very happy with it."

Johnson went on to tease that some other DC heroes may show up:

'Suicide Squad' and 'Sausage Party' Look to Take Down Newcomers, 'Kubo', 'War Dogs' & 'Ben-Hur'

'Suicide Squad' and 'Sausage Party' Look to Take Down Newcomers, 'Kubo', 'War Dogs' & 'Ben-Hur'
Three new wide releases are hitting theaters this weekend with Focus Features' and Laika's stop-motion animated project Kubo and the Two Strings serving as the widest debut of the lot. Fellow openers include Warner Bros' War Dogs and Paramount's Ben-Hur, though none of this weekend's new releases are likely to find themselves atop the box office. The DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad is looking to threepeat as the weekend's #1 film while Sony's R-rated animated feature Sausage Party hopes to hold off Kubo for a second weekend in the runner-up position. Overall this weekend should be yet another improvement over the same weekend last year with the top twelve pulling in around $120 million altogether. Before we get to the weekend's new releases we'll begin with a couple of carryovers, starting with Suicide Squad, which, along with 19 other wide release films in 2016, dropped over 60% in its second weekend. Of those 20 films,

Review: The Hangover 2 – Occasionally Entertaining if Pointless Sequel

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Long before it was even released and became the huge critical and commercial success that it did, 2009′s The Hangover had impressed test audiences enough that a sequel was swiftly greenlit. Invite scoffs though this did, the infectiously crude, surprisingly sweet bent to the humour and all that it had to say about male group dynamics did well to distract from the fact that it would lead to the inevitable cash grab.

Well, it’s two years later and The Hangover Part II is just that cash grab. While the cast is clearly game and the film isn’t without its moments of inspired lunacy, the sheer laziness with which the original film’s premise is soulessly recycled makes it a film difficult to feel enthusiastic about from the outset. It lacks the loony harmlessness of its predecessor and in upping the stakes also finds that

Screenwriter Scot Armstrong Talks The Hangover Part 2, What’s up with Old School Dos, His Directorial Debut Road To Nardo, and More

When you think of Todd Phillips' filmography, there's a few key names that come to mind:  Will Ferrell (who's starred or cameo'd in a good number of Phillips' films) for instance, or Juliette Lewis (who appeared in Old School and Due Date), or Seann William Scott (who cameo'd in Old School and starred in School For Scoundrels).  Add another name to that list:  Scot Armstrong, who wrote Old School, Road Trip, School For Scoundrels, and this week's The Hangover Part Two for the director.  We interviewed Armstrong prior to the release of the Hangover sequel, and he had some interesting things to say about sequels, dark comedy, the chances for a Hangover Part Three, and he also talked about his directorial debut Road to Nardo. Read on for the interview, after the jump... He may not have the same name-recognition as the director he's been working under for the past decade or so,

'Hangover Part II' Rakes in Over $10 Million at Midnight

'Hangover Part II' Rakes in Over $10 Million at Midnight
Looks like lots of people didn't mind showing up to work hungover. The Hangover Part II delivered the biggest midnight launch of the year. The ribald comedy raked in an estimated $10.4 million at 2,600 locations, handily topping Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' $4.7 million midnight start. It also achieved the record for largest midnight debut ever for an R-rated movie, surpassing Paranormal Activity 2's $6.3 million. Two years ago, the first Hangover grossed $1 million in its midnight start at 760 locations. Between The Hangover Part II and Kung Fu Panda 2, this Memorial Day weekend should be a real scorcher, particularly compared to last year's Sex and the City 2/Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time debacle. With Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides also in the mix, this could very well be the highest-grossing Memorial weekend ever, topping 2007's $256 million haul (led by Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

The Hangover Part II – The Review

If you weren.t able to put 2+2 together, The Hangover Part 2 is director Todd Phillips. follow up film to Due Date, and sequel (of sorts) to The Hangover (2009). It.s becoming apparent that Phillips is very much a one-trick pony, but it.s a trick he.s rather good at. not great, but good. If Phillips. films were a game of chance, they.d be roulette and we.d be betting on red or black. His films are 50/50, with the original Hangover, Old School, and some would even say Road Trip, being his hits, while his other films fared less favorably with many viewers.

Before I elaborate further, I want to make this perfectly clear. The Hangover Part 2 is funny, no. it.s down right hilarious, nearly as much so as The Hangover. For that reason, the film succeeds, but not all success is equal. Let.s consider the necessity factor.

The Hangover Part II Review

Two years on from their foggy night of debauchery in Sin City, the Wolfpack are back, this time to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of mild-mannered dentist Stu in Thailand. At first reluctant to invite Alan along (given his tendency to drug his supposed buddies for life), he soon joins the others on their journey to the exotic location.

So far so roofie-free, although the characters make constant reference to the drug (is this to remind audience members who have forgotten the catalyst for the first film’s exploits?). As expected however, things run far from smooth, and Stu, Alan and Phil wake up on the morning following an innocent evening of beers on the beach, to find themselves in a dank Bangkok hotel room with no memory of how they got there, and missing a vital part of the wedding party, in the form of Stu’s 16-year-old future brother-in-law.

Movie Review: The Hangover Part II (2011)

Bradley Cooper, Ken Jeong, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis in The Hangover Part II

Photo: Warner Bros. When I saw The Hangover back in 2009 it had me rolling. When it came time to watch it again on Blu-ray I immediately began to feel the film's length. The novelty had already started to wear off and while it still had its share of laughs it simply wasn't anywhere near as funny as it was the first time around. That said, you can probably predict my opinion on The Hangover Part II when I tell you it is pretty much a carbon copy of the first film only set in a different city.

Last time it was Doug (Justin Bartha) that was getting married as he and his friends Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) and his now brother-in-law Alan (Zach Galifianakis) took to Las Vegas for a bachelor party that went all kinds of wrong.

Extended Summer Forecast

Extended Summer Forecast
Every summer seems to get more and more derivative as Hollywood piles on the sequels, adaptations, remakes and movies that just feel shopworn. Summer 2011 continues this trend, differentiated by a few more superhero movies and comedies than normal, a 3D onslaught (15 titles, more than doubling last year) and the highest number of sequels to $200-million-plus movies yet (six, compared to the previous high of five in both 2007 and 2009).So much franchise fare may be less risky than more original fare, but less risk also means less potential reward. Therefore, the overall summer box office should be business as usual and not game-changing. It's those major sequels that seem poised to lead, but the somewhat wobbly start for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is a reminder that audiences don't always go for rote. As boring as it sounds, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part Two) and Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Why ‘The Hangover Part II’ Feels Just Like the Original Film

Why ‘The Hangover Part II’ Feels Just Like the Original Film
Warner Bros. Pictures The stars of “The Hangover Part II

Any similarities between “The Hangover” and “The Hangover Part II” are entirely non-coincidental.

To follow up his hit 2009 film “The Hangover,” which earned $467.5 million worldwide and became the top-grossing R-rated comedy of all time, writer-director Todd Phillips worked with co-writers Craig Mazin and Scot Armstrong to produce a sequel script that used the original film as a literal template. As a result, both films revolve around three friends (played by Bradley Cooper,

[Review] The Hangover Part II

It’s rare to encounter a sequel that’s more rewarding when you haven’t seen the original. But director Todd Phillips has created an enigma of sorts in the next incarnation of his 2009 smash hit The Hangover. It may be under the sequel moniker, but The Hangover Part II does nothing to advance “the world” or the characters that inhabit it. Sure, it isn’t a comic-book movie or an evolving franchise, but the sheer lack of inventiveness makes this one of the laziest films we are bound to get this summer.

The film is filled with callbacks, but it is not preposterous to claim one may have a better experience if they have no knowledge of the original. By using an identical structure, beat-for-beat, the element of surprise is gone. A crazy Asian man jumping out of an ice box instead of a car trunk, masturbation/penis jokes

Movie of the Week

The Hangover Part II

The Stars: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms

The Plot: Right after their infamous Las Vegas bachelor party, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu’s plan for a subdued pre-wedding brunch, however, goes seriously awry.

The Buzz: Like many wines and cheeses before him, Hangover II writer/director Todd Phillips has aged well. With Road Trip, his directorial debut, he made a film just funny enough to facilitate the production of his 2nd film, the far superior, Old School. From there Phillips helmed Starsky and Hutch, which was respected well enough, for what it was, before taking a major misstep with School for Scoundrels. Phillips bounced back big-time from his first flop,

Todd Phillips talks 'The Hangover Part 3'

As the highly anticipated "The Hangover Part 2" finally hits theaters this weekend, director Todd Phillips is already discussing plans for the third and final chapter of the highly successful franchise. This should come as no surprise. The first installment broke box office records and became the highest grossing R-Rated comedy in history.

Phillips (who also helmed "Due Date" not too long ago) has already stated that he always imagined "The Hangover" as a trilogy. That said, he also mentioned he wants to take the final film into a new direction rather than rely on the same template that is used in the first two installments. "The Hangover Part 2" hits theaters Thursday. (via Screenrant)

'The Hangover Part II': Looking Back On The Wolf-Pack's Path

'The Hangover Part II': Looking Back On The Wolf-Pack's Path
What a long, strange trip it's been since the first "Hangover" film dropped in 2009. Who could predict that an original comedy starring three mid-level actors would gross hundreds of millions around the world, or that it would become the new standard of bromance comedy, or that you'd actually want to drink more after seeing where alcohol had led the wolf-pack?

But less surprising is how the careers of the actors involved have taken off. Almost all of the primary actors in "The Hangover" have found increased success in the biz, whether it's as action stars, comedic bit players, or reality TV stars.

How far have they come, and where are they going? Find out after the jump!

Zach Galifianakis

"The Hangover's" breakout star floated for years in the alternative comedy scene as one of those perpetually hilarious comedians who never seemed to get a big break. His turn as man-child Alan sparked mainstream attention,

Zach Galifianakis Tells 'Rude' January Jones to 'Be Nice'

Zach Galifianakis apparently has no love for January Jones. During an interview with ShortList, the star of "The Hangover Part II" was told that the "Mad Men" beauty recently described him as the "most naturally funny person she'd ever met." He, however, reacted to the complimentary comment by bashing her.

"That's really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other," the 41-year-old recalled their previous encounter. "It was crazy. I was at a party - I'd never met her - and she was like, 'Come sit down.' So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, 'I think it's time for you to leave now.' "

The "Due Date" actor continued to share what he told her in response to her rude remark. "So I say, 'January, you are an actress in a show and everybody's going to
