Is ‘The Gentlemen’ Guy Ritchie’s Best Movie Yet?

Mickey Pearson is an American expatriate who became rich by building a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business, it soon triggers an array of plots and schemes — including bribery and blackmail — from shady characters who want to steal his domain.
Initial release: January 1, 2020
Director: Guy Ritchie
Box office: $48.4 million USD
Budget: $22 million USD

Get your Popcorn ready we’ve got a powerful cast of actors being directed by the legendary Guy Ritchie! Everyone I know was excited for this one. I like a good British gangster movie and it’s been a while since I’ve seen one. I didn’t love how the story was told in the beginning, I found it a little confusing and needless, but as the movie went on the strong performances of the characters made me forget about how the story was being told.

I give this a Nerdy Popcorn review a VERY respectable 7.2/10 – This is a easy movie to watch, I feel like you can do this one on date night, with the guys, or even as a family (Without kids under 14). Enjoyable and well acted. Well Done Sir.

Zombieland: Double Tap Released Online Early

Keep your eyes peeled because it looks like the much anticipated follow up to Zombieland has landed online earlier than it’s projected January 21st release date. To be fair – There should be literally zero wait time for movies to hit streaming services, it should be released as soon as there are no theaters still playing the movie.

The first movie was a welcomed changed from years of subpar Zombie movies. The casting was spot on and the Bill Murray cameo was perfect. It was a fun movie to watch and I really hope they’re able to recreate that same feeling – The biggest difference behind the scenes is the addition of David Callaham to the Screenplay team, David is responsible for writing the screenplay for Doom, The expendables, and more recently Wonder Woman 1984 (Set to be released 2020).

Here are the ratings from the top 3 sites:
IMDB: 7.2/10

Highest Paid Actresses in Hollywood

Ellen Pompeo: $22 million 

With “Grey’s” now in its 14th season, Pompeo is one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, earning more than $20 million a year, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She’ll receive $575,000 per episode, a seven-figure signing bonus, producing fees and back-end equity in the deal, among other perks.

Charlize Theron: $23 million

Theron likes to balance her work in smaller films, like 2011’s Young Adult, with bigger-budget fare like last year’s Snow White and the Huntsman. She also starred in Prometheus, the kind-of prequel to Aliens which earned $403 million at the global box office. Theron supplements her movie money with high-paid endorsements for brands like Dior. She’s now adding behind-the-scenes duties to her resume, executive producing a Hatfields & McCoys pilot for NBC.

Margot Robbie: $23.5 million

Margot Robbie, meanwhile, earned between $9-10 million for reprising the role of Harley Quinn in 2020’s Birds Of Prey, a fee that was bolstered by her also serving as a producer on the film.

Elisabeth Moss: $24 million

Elisabeth Moss is revealed to net $1m per episode for her lead role in The Handmaid’s Tale as well as Norman Reedus who’ll earn that same amount after succeeding Andrew Lincoln as the lead star of The Walking Dead.

Kaley Cuoco: $25 million

Some of the highest paid actresses on television have long-running starring roles in hit network comedies and dramas currently on air. Sofia Vergara, who plays Gloria on Modern Family, was the highest-paid actress of 2017. Ellen Pompeo (Grey’s Anatomy) and Cuoco also made that list. Cuoco is now reportedly worth over $50 million.

Jennifer Aniston: $28 million

The magazine estimated her net worth at $110 million in 2007, $150 million in 2014, and $200 million in 2017. It listed her earnings as $19.5 million in 2018.

Netflix’s is expected to hit $14 Billion in spending on new content this year. Apple has even had to increase their spend on original Apple TV content to $5 Billion.

Let’s take a look at the Star Power $397 Million buys you.

Ben Affleck

$8 million for “Triple Frontier”

Ben Affleck has certainly proven himself a leading man. He hasn’t really done anything that I’ve been a big fan of in a long time, but, I did somewhat enjoy the movies he’s been in.

Gal Gadot

$20 million for “Red Notice”

Gal can do no wrong, her role selection is perfect, and I cannot wait to see her in the new Wonder Woman movie. I haven’t seen much on Red Notice but I’ll be sure to post the trailer when it drops.

Ryan Reynolds

$27 million for “Six Underground”
$20 million for “Red Notice”

This doesn’t surprise me – Reynolds has been heating up for some time now. We’ll likely see a few more Netflix’s and Ryan Reynolds collaborations in the near future, but until then, here’s a trailer for Six Underground (Out December 13th, 2019

Will Smith

$35 million for “Bright 2”

Will Smith is Will Smith, he’s an action star who tried tirelessly to win an oscars in serious roles. He went back to basic when he collaborated with Netflix on Bright, which, out of his last few movies, was probably the best. This is a trailer for the first bright.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson”

More than $20 million for “Red Notice”

It’s The Rock, he is a mega movie star, beloved by all, and I’m surprised it took Netflix’s this long to lock him down for a movie. The trailer for Red Notice isn’t out yet, but, Jungle Cruise is coming out soon and I’m looking forward to it.

Adam Sandler

$250 million for four movies

Sandler’s Netflix movies have been major critical misfires, but that didn’t stop the streamer from signing him for four more movies in 2017 after his initial deal. His 2015 Netflix movie “The Ridiculous Six” has a 0% Rotten Tomatoes critic score. Here is the trailer for his new movie.

The LEGO Movie 2 New Trailer may have just shed some light on Chris Pratt’s Next Role! Hint: I think you’ll “Dig” It

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part – Theatrical Release Date: February 8th, 2019

The much anticipated second instalment of The Lego Movie is slated for release on February 8th, 2019, even at my age I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and can’t wait for the second.

I’m sure everyone will be happy to know that Chris Pratt will be returning to the franchise, but this time, he’ll be voicing two characters! While watching the trailer something stood out! His second character (Rex Dangervest) he’s described as a; Galaxy Defending, Archeologist, Cowboy, and Raptor Trainer.

Reference and the Movie he was in:

Pratt played Star Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy
Pratt played Josh Faraday in Magnificent Seven
Pratt played Owen Grady the Raptor Trainer in both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Pratt has yet to play an archeologist, he has, however, been rumoured to be heavily favoured by Disney to take on the iconic role of Indiana Jones!

Nerdy Trailer Alert: We finally get a look at Venom in the New trailer! Click for Trailer and Release Date

The new trailer for Sony’s Venom movie is out, and it corrects the first trailer’s mistake by actually having Venom in it. Quite a lot of Venom, actually, to the point where I might suggest staying away if you’re spoiler-averse. For everyone else, you’ll get to see Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock coming to terms with the new powers bestowed upon him by the symbiote and using them to predictably violent effect.

Venom is out October 5th. Official Movie Poster:

Nerdy Trailer Alert: Eli Roth’s “The House with a Clock in its Walls” has got us excited to See a Kids Movie

I randomly stumble upon this trailer while doing my nightly trailer marathon and I’ve got to say something about this movie makes me think it will be a delight for the whole family. One of those Halloween type movie you watch with the kids.

Jack Black and Cate Blanchett star in this spooky look at an old house filled with timely surprises. One thing that stood out was how dark this trailer was, after some research, it turns out Eli Roth is Directing which means that, although this is billed as a kids movie, it will likely be dark and twisted. The House with Clocks in its Walls is slated to be released September 2018.

 

Anyone else as excited as I am to see this?

Nerdy Trailer Alert: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” latest​ trailer has got me weak in the knee’s

Well, folks, May 24th is around the corner and Solo: A Star Wars Story has a new trailer! I watched it, I loved it, but I’m biased. Han has always been my favourite Star Wars character, Harrison Ford absolutely crushed that role, and, I’m hoping that Alden Ehrenreich does the same.

There have been numerous issues that have plagued this movie but based on what I’ve seen in the latest trailer it looks like Ron Howard was able to save Solo. One thing to note is that due to the size/popularity of the Star Wars franchise, it is inevitable that every single speed bump or non-story would be blown out of proportion.

I don’t think Solo will be breaking any all-time box office records but it will crush the opening weekend and do well. I kind of wish the release date was May 4th, it would have been perfect to include this movie into my planned Star Wars Day.

A Quite Place FINAL TRAILER is Here

Early reaction to John Krasinski’s big screen directorial debut has been phenomenal and judging by the trailers I am not surprised at all. Each trailer has gotten better and better, I am really hoping this isn’t one of those cases where the trailer is better than the movie.

I am anxiously waiting for this one to hit theaters, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a proper scary movie in theaters.

Christopher Nolan Marathon Time

Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite film-makers, I feel in love with his movies when I watch Memento (2000) 18 years ago, and have loved every movie he’s made since then. Today we list the ultimate Christopher Nolan Marathon list, Enjoy!

1. Memento (2000) – This movie only took 25 days to shoot

2. Insomnia (2002) – The only movie where Nolan is not credited for writing the movie, even though, he wrote the final draft

3. Batman Begins (2005) – Nolan was so fascinated with Cillian Murphy’s bright blue eyes that he kept trying to find reasons to have Crane remove his glasses.

4. The Prestige (2006) – Nolan meticulously studied Tesla’s experiments to recreate them with integrity. Especially the light globe scene.

5. The Dark Knight (2008) – Heath Ledger created the make-up for The Joker, when Nolan saw it, he immediately asked his make up team to recreate it.

6. Inception (2010) – Leonardo DiCaprio provided a lot of feedback and changes to the actual script. Nolan was quoted as saying “Once Leo came on board, I spent months and months sitting with him and discussing the script”

7. The Dark Knight Rises (2012) – This movie was the fastest to shoot out of all of Nolan’s Batman movies.

8. Interstellar (2014) – The plot of this movie was so secretive, Matthew McConaughey didn’t even revel the plot to his wife until the post-production was complete.

9. Dunkirk (2017) – The ticking sounds that serve as the crucial theme on the Dunkirk’s score were recorded by Hans Zimmer from one of Nolan’s own pocket watches.
