Creed 2 Director

A few months ago, Sylvester Stallone revealed on his Instagram page that he would be directing Creed 2, the follow-up to Ryan Coogler‘s acclaimed Rocky spin-off from 2015. The silence that followed was deafening and now it seems like we know why – he’s not directing it. In fact, a brand new director whose name and work you probably don’t know is stepping behind the camera.

The best Movies Streaming November

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Break out the cranberry sauce: it’s almost time for Thanksgiving. Soon you’ll be forced to sit at a table with your family and have a conversation. How terrifying! My advice: skip all that and stream some movies. If your family complains, advise them to sit down and stream the movies along with you. It’s win-win! Also, bring beer.

You don’t have to force a conversation with movies; you just have to watch them. Isn’t that glorious? Of course, with the ever-growing list of streaming services out there, it can be hard to pick a specific film to watch for your own specific needs. But since I’m such a nice guy, and it is the season of giving, I went ahead and assembled a cornucopia of great films for you to stream in the next few days. There’s stuff(ing) here from David Lynch, Guillermo del Toro, Ryan Coogler, and more! We’ve got horror, family films, fantasy, romance, action – you name it! So get ready to binge on these films, but make sure you save room for leftovers. Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

Ivan Drago in Creed 2

Update: This past weekend, Sylvester Stallone posted a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #drago, which is yet another piece of confirmation that a member of the Drago family will be a character in Creed 2. Read our original article from July 5 below for speculation about how this might play out in the sequel.

Ever since Creed hit theaters in the fall of 2015, surprising us all with just how outstanding a spin-off of Rocky could be, fans have been wondering when/if a sequel would come together. Though MGM CEO Gary Barber once mentioned that he would like to get a Creed sequel together for release in November of this year, that’s certainly not happening. But that doesn’t mean the prospect of a sequel is dead altogether.

Sylvester Stallone has been taking to Instagram over the past couple of weeks with some interesting nostalgic posts that seem to hint at what’s in store for Creed 2. In fact, one of them seems to flat-out confirm what kind of territory the story could be heading, and it includes a face from the past who could really make things interesting. Read More »

Fahrenheit 451 movie

Black Panther Movie Details

In exactly one week, the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con will be kicking off in Southern California, bringing us a slew of huge updates about the big comic book blockbusters on the way, as well as plenty more tentpoles and popular TV shows that audiences are soaking up in theaters and at home. But before that, Entertainment Weekly will be releasing their annual Comic-Con preview issue, and the first film to have new details released is none other than Marvel’s first 2018 release.

Black Panther will mark the first solo adventure for the African superhero introduced in Captain America: Civil War. The Marvel Comics character is played by Chadwick Boseman (42, Get On Up), and as we saw in the first teaser trailer released for the movie not too long ago, we’re going to dig deep into the mysterious country known as Wakanda. The nation holds many secrets, including one of the rarest metals on Earth, which Captain America fans should be familiar with, as well as a transfer of power, a disagreement with new leadership, and plenty new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Stars Before They Were Famous

By the time we’re done with The Avengers 4 in 2019, there will have been 22 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only does Marvel Studios have a massive roster of movies, but they have an insanely huge cast that they have to bring together when it’s time for The Avengers to assemble and save the world from an impending threat.

Most of the superheroes in the MCU are quite recognizable names who had long careers before joining comic book movies like Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson, but others didn’t become household names until they starred in the Marvel movies in question. No matter how famous they are now thanks to the MCU, there was a time before these actors and actress were famous, and a new video highlights just what they were doing before you even knew who they were.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Wrong Answer

Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan are two of the most exciting collaborators working in Hollywood today because they’re telling stories from a perspective that doesn’t align with what the industry unfortunately considers the default (ie. stories from a white male POV). Creed, their entry into the Rocky franchise, was one of the best blockbusters of 2015, but go back and watch 2013’s Fruitvale Station for the best sense of how they approach storytelling from a unique angle. And the pair is also working together on next year’s Black Panther, which could be one of the biggest films of 2018.

Now, word has come out that the director and actor are reuniting for another smaller scale, non-franchise movie called Wrong Answer, based on the real life story from a few years ago of middle school teachers caught in an epic cheating scandal.
