Rob Brydon, Shabana Azmi Board Lily James and Emma Thompson Comedy ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It?’
Working Title and Studiocanal romantic comedy “What’s Love Got To Do With It?,” directed by Shekhar Kapur (“Elizabeth”), has added to its cast.

Joining the existing cast of Lily James (“Yesterday”), Shazad Latif (“Departure”) and Emma Thompson (“Last Christmas”) are British actors Rob Brydon (“The Trip to Greece”) and Asim Chaudhry (“Wonder Woman 1984”), Pakistan’s Sajal Ali (“Mom”) and veteran Indian actor Shabana Azmi (“Kaali Khuhi”).

The film is based on an original script by Jemima Khan “(The Clinton Affair,” “The Case Against Adnan Syed,” “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks”).

“It’s a story of identities,” Kapur has said, describing the film. “It’s about cultural clashes and it’s a comedy, but it’s about hiding behind an identity and how identities can become tribal, and how tribalism can lead to clashes and fundamentalism. It’s a romcom, but based on this fundamental idea of people

The Sopranos Prequel The Many Saints of Newark Gets a New Fall Release Date
Audiences will sadly have to wait even longer before returning to the world of The Sopranos with upcoming prequel The Many Saints of Newark, with release having now been pushed back to Fall 2020. Just one of many projects that have been delayed again amid the ongoing global situation, The Many Saints of Newark will now hit screens on September 24, 2021, pushing it back a full year from its original release date.

James Bond Expert Explains Why Bridgerton Star Shouldn’t Be The Next 007

James Bond Expert Explains Why Bridgerton Star Shouldn’t Be The Next 007
Until No Time to Die finally gets released, which still might not be for a while yet based on recent reports, James Bond fans will have to keep themselves busy with speculation over who will be chosen as Daniel Craig’s successor. Luckily, there are no shortage of candidates rumored to be next in line, even if the latest odds still have Tom Hardy as the frontrunner.

The newest name to enter the conversation is Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, based almost entirely on the strength of his performance in Netflix’s smash hit series. However, renowned 007 expert Dr. Ian Kinane, editor of the academic peer-reviewed publication International Journal of James Bond Studies, has now explained why the 31 year-old shouldn’t be the next actor handed a license to kill.

“It isn’t unheard of that a future James Bond is known to have donned period costume at some point in his pre-Bond career.

First Trailer For Godzilla Vs. Kong Might Finally Be Coming Soon

First Trailer For Godzilla Vs. Kong Might Finally Be Coming Soon
In theory, we’re only four months away from the release of Godzilla vs. Kong, but it still shouldn’t be taken for granted that we’ll be seeing the latest chapter in the MonsterVerse debut simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max at the end of May. After all, with Morbius being delayed another eight months and No Time to Die widely expected to follow suit, we could be seeing another industry-wide reshuffle.

Godzilla vs. Kong might have the cushion of HBO Max to fall back on, but Warner Bros. and Legendary might still push the movie to protect their chances of international success, especially when the streaming service isn’t available outside of the United States. Then there’s the disagreement between the two parties, which looked like it might be heading for the courtroom at one stage, but last we heard the studio and production company were

Blockbusters May Leave Summer — Here’s What That Means for Theaters

Blockbusters May Leave Summer — Here’s What That Means for Theaters
On January 11, Dr. Anthony Fauci said theaters and music venues could safely reopen by this fall — some 18 months or more after Covid-19 forced their closure. As director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, his federal role is advisory but his timetable carries major weight in determining public attitudes toward when it’s safe to rejoin the masses in closed spaces. For theaters — and in turn, the studios — the bottom line is this: Not Summer.

This comes as reports circulate that “No Time to Die” could delay its rescheduled April 2 release. The newest James Bond film, with a reported budget of over $200 million, was the first title to shift in early March 2020. Unverified reports suggest it could be pushed back to September or later. (IndieWire has learned any decision to delay will not be made this week).

This raises a slew of questions and issues. Let’s parse

Tom Hardy Still The Odds-On Favorite To Replace Daniel Craig As James Bond

Tom Hardy Still The Odds-On Favorite To Replace Daniel Craig As James Bond
If things had gone to plan, we might have found out who the next actor to play James Bond would have been by now. The 25th installment in the franchise, and Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007, was initially set to be released in April of last year before the Coronavirus pandemic came along and turned the entire world on its head.

No Time to Die was first pushed to November, and then even further back to April of this year, but there’ve been a flurry of reports making the rounds that the latest globetrotting espionage actioner could end up being shunted once more. If the stories turn out to be true, then Craig’s swansong as cinema’s most famous secret agent will arrive 20 months behind schedule and six years after Spectre, making it the second longest gap between movies in Bond history.

No Time to Die May Skip Easter for New Thanksgiving Friendly Release Date
It is looking very likely that James Bond will not be sipping martinis and despatching bad guys any time soon, with word spreading that No Time to Die is looking to ditch its current April release date and move instead to sometime in the fall. Potentially being pushed back all the way to November. With the current state of the ongoing situation in both the United States and the United Kingdom, the latter of which is a key market for 007, MGM is reportedly looking to delay the movie to later in the year.

The situation in the United Kingdom in particular has been escalating over recent weeks, with the nation recently thrown back into lockdown, bringing a grinding halt to the theater industry once again. A further delay to No Time to Die should not come as too much of a surprise, as the latest James Bond outing has already been delayed several times.

No Time To Die Reportedly Delayed Until The Fall

No Time To Die Reportedly Delayed Until The Fall
There’s still no time for No Time to Die to play in theaters.

The latest James Bond movie – officially the final outing for Daniel Craig as 007 – has reportedly been delayed once again, according to Deadline. The trade shared the disappointing but hardly surprising news this Tuesday, writing that several sources have informed them that MGM has elected to remove it from its planned April release and push it back to some unknown date in the fall.

Last year, No Time to Die broke ground as the first major pic to be delayed due to the Covid-19 outbreak. It was set for April 2020 but MGM, who are in charge of domestic distribution, and Universal, who are carrying it internationally, moved it back to November instead. Then, when it became clear that the global situation hadn’t improved as much as hoped by that time, it was held off until April 2021. Well,

U.S. Box Office Plummets 80%, Global Revenue Drops 71% in 2020 Amid Pandemic

U.S. Box Office Plummets 80%, Global Revenue Drops 71% in 2020 Amid Pandemic
North American box office revenues in 2020 hit a 40-year low, struggling to reach $2.2 billion in total amid the coronavirus crisis. Movie theaters were forced to stay closed for a significant portion of the year beginning in late March and struggled to recover when some cinemas were able to reopen months later in August.

That resulted in an 80% year-over-year decline from 2019, according to Comscore. Box office returns from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2019 brought in a near-record $11.39 billion, thanks to the smash success of “Avengers: Endgame,” “The Lion King” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home.”

Worldwide returns suffered a similar drop, with global ticket sales totaling $12.4 billion — a 71% slide from the year prior. In 2019, the global box office cemented a new industry high as worldwide receipts surpassed $42.5 billion.

The bulk of international earnings in 2020 came from China. For the first time, the Middle Kingdom was the world’s biggest moviegoing market. The country, whose

‘No Time To Die’ Poised To Depart Easter Weekend For Fall Release
In what should not be a shocker, we are hearing that MGM/Eon’s No Time to Die is bound to move from its Easter weekend release of April 2 to some time in the fall, as the world waits for this pandemic to come under control. Several sources inform us this morning. Note, the UK, is a key market in No Time to Die‘s rollout, and they’re facing a similar situation as the U.S.: They don’t know exactly when exhibition will be fully back up and running.

The leakage on the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed film started yesterday on the Dutch site Bn DeStem, in which Dutch exhibitor Carlo Lambregts revealed that he heard No Time to Die was heading from its Easter weekend date to November.

BFI-Funded Inclusive Cinema Project Tackles Racism With Toolkit Launch – Global Bulletin
In today’s Global Bulletin, Inclusive Cinema addresses racism; Swipe pops champagne documentary; BFI seeks film fund director; Sky goes green; Sovereign acquires “Verdict”; and Blackstone buys “Stars Wars” building.

The U.K.’s Inclusive Cinema project has launched a guide for improving the cinema experiences of ethnically diverse audiences and staff — a directive that challenges institutions to make good on their Black Lives Matter and anti-racism statements from 2020.

The guide, titled “Dismantling Structural Inequality in Your Cinema,” was commissioned from artist and freelancer Sadia Pineda Hameed, and is cited by its writer as “the last toolkit that cinemas should need.” The toolkit examines the role of cinemas in the context of systemic injustice and focuses on preventing harm towards people of color. From immediately actionable tools, to encouraging inner, reflective and dialogue-based work, towards undoing systemic injustice, the guide is intended to create lasting change for future generations, and

No Time To Die, Fast & Furious 9 And More Might Be Delayed Again

No Time To Die, Fast & Furious 9 And More Might Be Delayed Again
When the major studios first started pulling their big budget titles from the release calendar and delaying them for anywhere up to a year, even the most pessimistic of analysts couldn’t have predicted that once those twelve months were over, the theatrical industry would still be on its knees.

The box office was down by $30 billion last year, which indicates the size of the hit business took as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, with Warner Bros. trying to get ahead of the game by announcing their entire slate of 2021 releases for a simultaneous HBO Max and big screen premiere, which appeared to be a worst case scenario idea at the time.

Unfortunately, though, there’s little sign of things returning to normal at any point in the immediate future, with 65% of screens in the United States currently closed and the United Kingdom’s biggest chain Cineworld having shut
