Avatar has reclaimed the top spot as highest-grossing movie ever

Avatar claimed the mantle of highest-grossing film ever at the box office at the time of its release in 2009; but the title held by the movie for over a decade was taken by Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

After its re-release in the world’s largest movie-watching market of China, sales pushed Avatar over the $2.8bn (£2bn) mark over the previous weekend (weekend beginning Friday March 12th, 2021).

Director of the doubly-successful movie, James Cameron, is currently working on four sequels to the exciting first instalment.

The second film in the franchise, after being delayed quite a few times, is now set to be released in December of 2022.

It must be questioned though, that if not for the re-release, how much longer would the pinnacle of Marvel’s decade-long story stayed at the top?

Warner Brothers wouldn’t let Justice League use Green Lantern due to future plans

If the 2011 film Green Lantern didn’t get you excited, then that makes perfect sense as it really wasn’t that good, at all. Even Ryan Reynolds who played the emerald hero has only recently watched the film himself, 10 years after its release…

Green Lantern was supposed to turn up at the end of the recently-released Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, but it was decided against; not due to the fact that his movie wasn’t the best, but because Warner Brothers have other plans for the do-gooder Hal Jordan.

While he was rather significant in the DC comics his on-screen presence in 2011 left much to be desired. The character in the comics had been a pivotal point in the creation of the Justice League, so it is actually a small wonder as to why he hasn’t been in either version of the movie.

In regard to plans for the green hero, HBO Max is rumoured to release a Green Lantern show, potentially with John Stewart as Green Lantern. Stewart is a fictional character who also donned the role of the Lantern, and was the first African-American hero to appear in DC comics, with his first comic appearance in 1971.

Puss In Boots 2 gets a release date

Everyone’s favourite ginger, talking, sword-wielding and boot-wearing cartoon cat is back! Puss has had many film appearances and even his own Netflix show, but now Antonio Banderas is back to voice the kitty in his next big solo adventure.

We first met Puss back in 2004 in Shrek 2, when Shrek’s (Mike Myers) father-in-law hired the fickle feline to kill the ogre – but since he decided to go against orders, he and Shrek became fast friends, much to Donkey’s (Eddie Murphy) displeasure.

Puss’ first solo film, after many supporting roles, followed the crafty cat as we saw his life before he met Shrek. It even received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature Film.

With director Joel Crawford in the boss’ chair, the charming sequel will follow Puss, after he realises he’s on his last life, on his journey to get these lost lives back.

The second film will be titled Puss in Boots: The Last Wish and has a scheduled release date of September 23rd, 2022.

Four Good Days trailer revealed

A new movie trailer has dropped starring Glenn Close and Mila Kunis.

The trailer shows Deb (Close) and her daughter Molly (Kunis) as the estranged pair try to battle Molly’s drug addiction.

After years of addiction, Molly’s mother seems to want nothing more than to help her daughter get clean. Their journey reveals demons from the past, testing both Molly’s willpower and Deb’s emotional strength.

Directed by Rodrigo Garcia, the film promises a deep, in-depth look into addiction; and Kunis is said to give a performance unlike any other in her career so far.

It seems that you definitely know what you’re getting into with Four Good Days, and will most certainly well up your eyes with tears as family is brought together while also being torn apart.

After its success at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, the cinemas are crying out for the days when this film will be let loose.

The film is set for cinema release on April 30th, 2021, with an on-demand release scheduled for May 21st, 2021.

Face/Off 2 director says Travolta and Cage may return

Despite rumours and talks, the new Face/Off movie will in fact be a sequel to the original from 1997, not a remake. So, this can only mean one thing - John Travolta and Nicolas Cage will potentially be back as Sean Archer and Castor Troy.

The first film followed Sean Archer (Travolta), an FBI agent, as he tries to catch his son’s killer and personal arch-enemy, Castor Troy (Cage). In order to do this, Archer employs face-swapping technology to catch the bad guy.

While it sounded crazy on paper, and was equally mad in execution, it still managed to be one of the biggest 90s action films.

Director for this sequel, Adam Wingard, stated that he is aware that while both actors like the concept of the second film, they still have to be impressed with the script before officially signing on.

The 1997 movie was principally popular due to the chemistry of Cage and Travolta, with one trying to out-act the other; and while it seems both actors have sadly passed the pique of their careers, Face-Off 2 seems the perfect way to highlight them once again.
