without remorse director

We’re living in the middle of the Stephen King adaptation Renaissance and Hulu is trying to make a John Grisham TV universe happen, so why not more Tom Clancy? Your dad’s favorite author passed away in 2013, but his work has lived on as other writers dabble in his universe and video games continue to plaster his name on the box. And then there’s Jack Ryan, the buzzy Amazon series starring John Krasinksi as Clancy’s most famous hero.

But what about Clancy’s second most famous hero? A few months ago, we learned that the great Michael B. Jordan was going to star in film adaptations of the novels Without Remorse and Rainbow Six, playing the hardened soldier John Clark. Now, we know who is going to direct that first movie.

The not-so-secret secret is that no one wants to host Hollywood’s award shows anymore. Comedians, talk show hosts and actors stand to gain nothing and lose a whole bunch by taking the gig. And yet, the show must go on. Yesterday, Kevin Hart stepped to the plate to hose the next Oscars ceremony. Now, we know who will host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards: Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh.

The Star Wars series has always been a home for wizened older actors with a talent for lending gravitas to sometimes silly situations. Just to name a few: Alec Guinness, Ian McDiarmid, and Max Von Sydow.

blue beetle movie

That sound you hear is Warner Bros. taking a long hard look at how Marvel Studios has elevated so many second-string superheroes into box office sensations and muttering “Why can’t we do that?” And with a new Blue Beetle movie, it certainly sounds like they’re going to try to do just that. And this character feels like he could be a big deal – he has the crazy armor of Iron Man, the teenage angst of Spider-Man, and beneath the costume is a Latino kid, offering Warner Bros. a chance for special first for superhero cinema.

Top five favorite business rivalries – go! Coca-Cola versus Pepsi. Edison versus Tesla. Marvel versus DC. Disney versus Universal. And, of course, Nintendo versus Sega. That latter was the subject of the 2015 book Console Wars, which tells the tale of how the scrappy video game company Sega took on the colossal industry titan Nintendo in the ’90s, fought hard, grew fast, and ultimately flew too close to the sun.
