Expresso Hollywood News Update at 6.30 pm on 24th May 2022

You are listening to the Expresso Entertainment Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Hollywood brought to you by The Indian Express.

Let’s begin with news from the streaming giant Netflix and its upcoming release ‘The Gray man’. Along with an official first look at the movie unveiled in late April 2022, the release date has been confirmed for July 2022.
The Russo Brothers movie stars Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, Dhanush, Ana de Armas, and Regé-Jean Page in the lead roles.

Based on the novel of the same name by Mark Greaney, The Gray Man revolves around a cat-and-mouse chase that occurs between the characters of Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. Ana plays a CIA agent in the movie, meanwhile, Dhanush’s role in the film is still unclear. The text on his character poster reads -‘Lethal Force’.

“In the meanwhile, the first trailer of “Mission Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One” is out and it has caused a lot of excitement amongst the cine-goers. Tom Cruise offers mind-bending and breathtaking action sequences.

While one part of the clip shows a part of a train going off the rails into the deep end, in another bit towards the end, we see our protagonist jumping off a cliff while riding his motorbike. Basically, Ethan Hunt is back on a new, and seemingly more dangerous mission.

The audience is taken on a solely visual journey with quick cuts. While recurring characters like Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson make an appearance, we are introduced to a fresher set of talented artists like Hayley Atwell, Indira Varma, and Pom Klementieff.”

Following up with the sequence of events gauging Will Smith’s famous slap, David Lettermen on Netflix comes back with an interesting episode. He invites Will Smith as a guest to his Late Night show. This is Smith’s first interview to stream since his controversial assault on Oscar presenter Chris Rock earlier this year. However, the interview with David Letterman was recorded before the Oscars ceremony. In the interview, Smith talked about his acting and music career and getting disillusioned with everything at one point. The actor also opened up about his childhood, why he never cursed in his raps, and feeling like a ‘coward’ growing up.

“Let us now look at news from the Marvel Universe. The first official trailer for the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder is out, following a teaser that was released recently. “Thor: Love and Thunder” is the fourth film in the Thor series and the 29th overall in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor, who must lose the extra weight that he gained before the events of “Avengers: Endgame” and find renewed purpose in his life. The trailer begins with the fan-favorite character Korg narrating tales of Thor’s adventures. We watch as he reunites with his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who will take on the mantle of Mighty Thor in the film, and get our first look at Christian Bale as the villainous Gorr the God Butcher.”
“In other news, Doctor Strange and his multiverse got to linger a little longer atop the weekend box office as Tom Cruise and Top Gun wait in the wings. Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was the top-earning film of the weekend for the third straight week, bringing in $31.6 million in 4,534 North American theaters, according to studio estimates released Sunday.

It finished on Sunday with $803.2 million in worldwide ticket sales. This makes it the No. 2 Hollywood film of the pandemic era behind Spider-Man: No Way Home with $1.89 billion. It had earlier surpassed No Time to Die with $774.2 million and The Batman with $768.5 million.”

One of the most awaited films of all time, ‘Armageddon Time’, starring Anthony Hopkins, Anne Hathaway, and Jeremy Strong, has stirred Cannes like no other American film at the festival this year. Gray’s movie, which Focus Features will distribute in the US later this year, has been received as a successful triumph for the New York filmmaker of The Immigrant and Ad Astra not just for the detailed excavation of his childhood but for how the film reexamines his own white privilege growing up. It portrays how race and money can tip the scales in the formative years of young people.”
“Speaking of great films, Cristian Mungiu has come out with an exquisite slow burn named ‘RMN’. It is about a man who is at odds with his wife and his life — to the universal — townspeople driven by a visceral suspicion of the other. And that other could be ethnic Romanians, Bulgarians, Germans, and a group of Sri Lankan immigrants, the latter becoming the butt of easy, collective hatred. These people are dirty, yells a woman at a town meeting, face contorted in fury. Mungiu continues with this brand of naturalistic cinema which goes along, picking up narrative threads, erupting into shockingly powerful moments.

“And Finally, the famous actor Margot Robbie has been tapped to play the lead role in the Ocean’s Eleven prequel film set at Warner Bros.

According to Variety, the movie is billed as a heist comedy and follows con artists who rob hundreds of millions from a Las Vegas casino. This follows the original Ocean’s trope.

Robbie’s impressive director Jay Roach is attached to make the film from a screenplay penned by Carrie Solomon. The story is expected to be set far away from Sin City, in 1960s Europe. The Ocean’s heist franchise, based on the 1960 Rat Pack film, was launched by filmmaker Steven Soderbergh back in 2001 with Ocean’s Eleven.”
