Within an interview with Entertainment Weekly magazine, Indian actress Priyanka Chopra stated that she was a huge fan of the 1990s syndicated TV series “Baywatch” and that it prompted her first acting career in Bollywood movies.

“My mom and me , it was our favourite thing to see,” stated that the 34-year-old former Miss World beauty-pageant winner. “I loved the theme tune, I loved how everyone was backlit, running in slow motion. As soon as I turned into a Hindi movie actress, I used to shoot inspiration and do all of my slow movement acting from ‘Baywatch’.”

Ms. Chopra co-stars from the silver-screen version of “Baywatch,” as Victoria Leeds, a drug-running villain who matches wits with lifeguards Mitch Buchanan and Matt Brody, played with Dwayne Johnson along with Zac Efron respectively.

Inspired by the trailers, the action-comedy doesn’t take itself seriously, and yet, consequently to Ms. Chopra, which could just be exactly what movie audiences that this summer might use.

“There’s so much on the planet that is happening right now that is dark and heavy, and I believe people require a reason to smile,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “You need a break from the news for a second. Somewhere only and good over evil, and you wish to believe in humanity and individuals laugh. ‘Baywatch’ provides you all of this.”


In preparation to the Chinese premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming next month, Marvel has published several promotional posters featuring the web-slinging hero along with famous landmarks around the nation. From getting in accord with the Terracotta Warriors Spider-Man has made his presence in China.

Even the #Spiderman reboot has been well received when it opened in the U.S. earlier this summer, but it’s yet to hit on China, among the world’s largest markets. If these thoughtful posters are any sign, Marvel is looking to increase the achievement in the Middle Kingdom of Spidey.

So far as big screen superhero adventures go, the two biggest names in the industry are Marvel Studios, the group behind , and Warner Bros., the studio responsible for assembling the . However, long before Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Length of Justice, until Iron Man, and even before 2002’s genre-defining Spider-Man, there was Bryan Singer’s .

Released way back in 2000, X-Men combined a group of super-powered people in a thought-provoking action blockbuster that   had been half summer scene, and half an thought-provoking drama. The end result was a franchise which, while it has noticed its ups and downs over time, has endured and lived for seventeen decades, and is still showing no signs of quitting. The tenth and latest film from the series, , started into a spectacular $88 million, and is now closing in about $200 million people and $550 million worldwide.

What is next for Deadpool, Wolverine, Professor X, and the rest of 20th Century Fox’s stable of Marvel characters? Let us Look at Each Fox/Marvel Project Currently In Development.

14 Wade Wilson as he appeared in Deadpool film Every Fox/Marvel Movie & TV Show Currently In Development

The X-Men movie series has generally skewed towards largely self-serious, timelinessalong using a strong serving of big-budget action/adventure. 2016’s eschewed all of the internal logic and stoic characterization of this franchise in exchange for broad and raunchy R-rated comedy… And it worked! Deadpool, despite being the smallest budget of any X-Men movie at just $58 million, proceeded to function as highest-grossing movie in the series yet — shooting in a remarkable $783 million worldwide.

Though the talent has been changed around slightly a sequel was quickly green lit. The first Deadpool has been helmed by Tim Miller in his own directorial debut, and it was anticipated that he would return for the protagonist. But, Miller finally awakened ways with the job due to creative differences with celebrity and producer Ryan Reynolds. Eventually, David Leitch (John Wick) stepped in to take the reins on Deadpool 2.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, it is known (based on the post-credits stinger of their very first movie) which Cable will take a look. Since that time, a amount of actors were rumored for the job, by Pierce Brosnan and Brad Pitt into Stephen Lang and Russell Crowe, it looks like every middle-aged top man has been considered for the time-traveling cyborg. The current frontrunner appears to be none besides Michael Shannon (Man of Steel). Whatever the case turns out to be, a formal announcement is anticipated soon. In the meantime, Drew Goddard (Netflix’s Daredevil, Cabin in the Woods) has been brought in to gloss the script to the subversive superhero sequel, which will feature Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as fan-favorite comic character Domino.

Deadpool 2 has no formal launch date however, but Fox includes March 2, 2018  and June 29, 2018 penciled in to their Marvel movies, and it is fair to anticipate Deadpool to property on the earlier date, together with the second being earmarked for New Mutants (but more about this in a little).

X Force Messiah Wars Cable Deadpool and Wolverine Every Fox/Marvel Movie & TV Show Currently In Development

For a time, it was speculated that, after Deadpool 2, Deadpool 3 would ostensibly focus on the X-Force group, together with Deadpool himself becoming part of the film’s costume of mutants. Recently it was confirmed that Deadpool 3 and X-Force are, in reality, two individual films, both of which are being proposed at the same time. Based on how scheduling finally ends up, it is possible   audiences might receive two movies starring Deadpool over the course of a single calendar year. Deadpool 3 does not have a director yet, however Joe Carnahan (Stretch, Narc) has been connected to write and possibly direct X-Force.

It’s too early to tell exactly what Deadpool 3 might entail, although it’s likely it might set the stage for X-Force. In the comics, the X-Force is a top-secret squad of mutants sent on key black-ops missions (believe Stryker’s team at X-Men Origins: Wolverine), and the rotating roster of mutants on the group has showcased Cable, Deadpool, Wolverine, Psylocke, Domino, and a lot more, incluing — that is the case — Dead Girl. It’s currently unknown which, if any, of these mutants will show up in the movie, although it’s exceptionally improbable which Wolverine will look, despite Ryan Reynolds’s fantasies.

Magik and the X Men New Mutants Every Fox/Marvel Movie & TV Show Currently In Development

Between Deadpool, Logan, also X-Force, it is clear that Fox is willing to let the X-Men brand stretch its legs and research new thoughts outside of their franchise’s recognized confines. This trend is set to continue at the approaching X-Men spin-off, New Mutants. The creative  group behind The Fault in our Stars (director Josh Boone, writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber) are top this particular X-Men story, which is being described as “John Hughes meets Stephen King.”

New Mutants, such as seemingly any big-name blockbuster nowadays, is being pitched as a trilogy, and will likely include the iconic Demon Bear from the comics. The throw is now unknown, however, with filming scheduled to occur in May, formal announcements ought to be right around the corner.

The movie is expected to contain characters like Cannonball, Wolfsbane, Magik, and Sunspot, all of whom will likely be played by teenaged actors. Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) will be firmly rumored to the Use of Wolfsbane, and James McAvoy might make an appearance as Professor X. While no release date has been announced, expect this one to heat up quickly, as it is forecast to enter full-tilt production.

x men apocalypse sophie turner Every Fox/Marvel Movie & TV Show Currently In Development

2016 saw two X-Men movies hit theatres. To begin with, Deadpool arrived and blew away expectations, making well over ten times its own funding in global grosses. It was. 2016’s other X-Men movie, Apocalypse, while by no way a dismal failure, failed to enrapture audiences such as Deadpool or 2014’s Times of Future Past, earning $543 million worldwide on a funding of $178 million. Not a collapse, however maybe not a lot to write home about.

Still, the X-Men brand   is stronger compared to the box-office under-achiever here and there, and production on the next chapter of this mainline X-Men saga is now underway. It was previously rumored that the movie would be eligible X-Men: Supernova, however, that’s since been revealed for a mere placeholder, and also the picture’s true title stays under wraps. However, dependent on this working title, as well as plot threads out of Apocalypse, it is likely that the new film, set from the 1990s, will inform its own version of the Dark Phoenix Saga, which explores   the immense energy inside Jean Grey (Sophie Turner). This story was previously hinted at in X2: X-Men United, and then made into a subplot within 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. It’s now anticipated that the movie will give that story the attention and care that it deserves.

It’s currently unknown which cast members are returning, because the contracts for show leads James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Fassbender have all run their route. In terms of directing responsibilities, Bryan Singer is stepping aside to let somebody else take the reins, and the current frontrunner is Simon Kinberg — q longtime writer for the franchise, dating back into The Last Stand.

Gambit cards Every Fox/Marvel Movie & TV Show Currently In Development

Gambit’s very first appearance at the X-Men movie world arrived from the oft-maligned Origins: Wolverine, in which the card-playing cajun had been played by Taylor Kitsch. A Gambit sacred movie  was rumored to follow along, but after the tepid critical reception to Origins, it quietly faded away.

The legend goes that, until the character has been cut out of X-Men: The Last Stand, a young Channing Tatum had auditioned to perform with the explosively-charged mutant. In the past several decades, Gambit has surfaced as a potential star vehicle for Tatum. For a little while, it was anticipated the Gambit, directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), could hit theaters in summer 2018, however the film struck a snag in August 2016 if the director dropped out to unite DC’s Dark Universe.

As of right now, the strategy will be to get Channing Tatum to return to Gambit after he completes work on Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, where stage Fox will have found a new director, and — hopefully — a script. Whether this strategy finally stands outside, or when Gambit is met with much more delays, is anyone’s guess. Thinking about the standing of Louisiana’s favorite mutant superhero, it is far better to wait a little longer to get a movie that is better than to be stuck using a sub-par product.

Legion David and Lenny group therapy Every Fox/Marvel Movie & TV Show Currently In Development

This year, X-Men expanded into the area of tv with Legion, a cerebral and visually enthralling take on mutants and their abilities which feels like a cross between 1960s psychedelia and the movies of Nicholas Winding Refn (The Neon Demon, Just God Forgives). At best, it is only tangentially-related into the larger X-Men movie series, but that should not be held against the series; after all, this criticism is every bit as true of Logan and Deadpool. The series has been shown to be successful, and David Haller’s journey by his own psychosis will continue at a second season, which was recently purchased by FX.

Legion might be a far out trip into the outskirts of this X-Men world, but a more traditional television project is also in the works; a series together with the working title of Gifted has been ordered to series from Fox, and is likely to broadcast this fall on the community. The very first incident is being directed by Bryan Singer himself, the guy who was at the helm to the first movie and also three of its sequels. While plot details are being withheld, the series will center on a set of youths that are mutant and their parents on the run by the authorities. It will be set within the larger X-Men world, although it is unknown if some big-screen actors will soon be making appearances on this series.

Nightmarish swarm of ‘horror Film’ birds Assault truck in Chilling Movie

FRIGHTENING video shows a massive group of birds dive on to a truck since it tries to navigate a road busy with visitors.

From the clip — filmed using a dashcam — a truck coated with navy blue cloth rolls along a road slowly in bumper-to-bumper visitors under a gray, cloudy sky.

But when something stops happens.

A swarm of nearly a hundred black birds abruptly swoop to assault the truck, circling back, leaving and pecking at it.

“How to make a Film the secure way” at NAB Show 2017

In the NAB Show 2017 Seminar this week, we are going to be reprising our session “Preventing the Making of the Next Hollywood Blockbuster”(Las Vegas | April 25, 2017 | 1:30 PM – 2:00 PM at the Cybersecurity & Content Protection Pavilion — Booth C3830CS — Central Hall). Azure’s very own Joel Sloss will regale the crowd about the transition to secure movie creation in the cloud, made possible by Microsoft Azure along with a cadre of ISV partners who’ve ported their solutions to the stage.

Content comes in many forms and must be saved in many places, such as on servers, workstationsand mobile storage, archives, etc., which presents a enormous security challenge. Preventing this data on top of the additional challenge of properly handling private information such as health records, contract information, and paystubs, strains an already complicated data governance situation.

Within this session, we will look at an end workflow leveraging 5th Kind Avid, Contractlogix, Docusign, MarkLogic, along with SyncOnSet’s wizardry as well as Azure. Lulu Zezza, Physical Production Executive and the driving force behind the end workflow, will soon be co-presenting together with Mr. Sloss.   She noted that, “Moving into the cloud is the perfect method to apply security controls across so many different physical and logical environments, places, and information types. We’ve got people working all over the world, for various businesses, using approaches that are different, all contributing to the production. In years past it has been just like a free-for-all, together with builders getting access to things they shouldn’t, data being replicated and saved in the incorrect places, and sensitive content left out in the open.”

The new digital workflow allows a secure “script-to-screen” experience for the management of the manufacturing data and the crew’s personal HR information, to which new international privacy standards apply. Metadata captured from contracts, scripts, along with camera files is related to filming times, shoots recorded and scenes, and later to the final edit of the movie. Plus communications are stored secure and confidential. It’s a completely different way.

Join Joel at his session where you’ll hear about:

  • Brick concerns for multi-domain cloud environments
  • Secure access and device control for BYOD consumers
  • Content protection and privacy in connected and disconnected networks

Together with all the Oscar ceremonies it seems the perfect time for another installment of the ongoing series of lists of most film lines.

You may remember we did before lists of both one-word and two-word traces of dialogue so distinctive that you could actually recognize the movie from them.

So, here we go with unforgettable three-word lines, a lot of which left the American Film Institute’s entertaining listing “AFI’s 100 Years, 100 Movie Quotes” (PDF).

As always, don’t hesitate to improve my sampler along with your own suggestions in the Comment area below.

We’ll Begin with a Whole Lot of “gimmes”:

“E.T. phone home.” –“E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.” AFI rated this quotation No. 15.

“Bond. James Bond.” — By 007’s debut movie, “Dr. No,” and lots of follow-up experiences. This quotation ended No. 22.   For extra credit, try your hand in this James Bond quote quiz.

“Tora! Tora! Tora!” –“Tora! Tora! Tora!”

“Good morning, Vietnam!” –“Good Morning, Vietnam”

Many classics:

“I will be back.” –“The Terminator.” This one completed No. 37 on the AFI list.

• “Follow the money.” — Deep Throat’s sequence to Washington Post writer Bob Woodward at “All the President’s Men”

“What a dump!” — Bette Davis’ succinct comment on her surroundings in the 1949 movie “Beyond the Universe.” The quotation ended up in No. 62 on AFI’s list. Back in 1966, Martha (Elizabeth Taylor) riffs on the famous line in this spectacle from “Who is Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

“We rob banks.” –“Bonnie and Clyde.” The line ended No. 41 in the AFI ranks.

“Is it safe?” — the most perennial query within this squirm-inducing scene at “Marathon Man.” It is No. 70 on AFI’s list.

“You complete me.” –“Jerry Maguire”

“Well, nobody’s perfect.” –“Some Like It Hot.” The timeless comeback rated No. 48.

“Stop the presses.” — the greatest paper command that prompts a pressroom knockdown battle between tabloid editors Glenn Close and Michael Keaton at “The Paper”

•– the most unforgettable line by the 1951 sci-fi thriller “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and, of course, that the 2008 Keanu Reeves movie

And we will wrap up with a wonderful quote by both the Coen Brothers — a cult classic by both Minnesota relations — and also the Oscars of Sunday. Jeff Bridges, “The Dude” at “The Big Lebowski,” appears to be the clear favorite to win the Oscar for best actor, at least based on this interesting academic study.

“The Dude abides.”
