After 17 years of waiting, we finally got to see the bad boys of Miami grow up with Bad Boys For Life. And it was worth the wait. Without Michael Bay at the helm, the Miami cops actually got to grow a little, have some real heart-to-heart moments, and do and say things we just don’t see in Bay’s movies. Co-directors Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi managed to recharge the franchise and make a sequel both modern and nostalgic.
After the success of Bad Boys for Life, another sequel is already in the works. If all goes according to plan, expect Fallah and El Arbi back to direct. While speaking with the Belgium filmmaking duo behind Black, which is what caught Will Smith and Jerry Bruckheimer‘s attention, they told us about their plan to direct one more sequel. They also told us about making the movie’s massive motorcycle chase scene, paying homage to Bay and the ’90s, and more.

When you’re a cannabis baron who wants to get out of the game, you will inevitably have gangster upstarts sniffing around your territory.

Paramount Pictures had to deal with a bit of a nightmare scenario when the reveal of their Sonic the Hedgehog movie was downright laughable. The reaction was so unfavorable that the studio chose to overhaul the design of the SEGA video game character and push the movie back from a November release last year to a February release this year. Thankfully, the new character design has been approved by fans, and it looks like the movie is tracking to have a solid opening for the Presidents Day weekend in February, which also happens to be Valentine’s Day weekend.

The Gentlemen is being touted as a return to form for Guy Ritchie — not the director behind blockbuster bombs like King Arthur or tepid Disney live-action remakes like Aladdin, but the electric, raucous auteur behind Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. And Ritchie is aware of this going into The Gentlemen, a contemporary gangster movie that has a sense of timelessness to it. But The Gentlemen is very much about the times, or rather, a time gone by: the era in which gangsters did things the old, mean, dirty way. But the times, they are a’changing, and a new guard of gangsters — represented by a delightfully unhinged Henry Golding — threatens to upend the balance. Or do they?

For the casual Star Wars viewer, Admiral Ackbar is a character who probably doesn’t even register in the long term. More discerning fans will know him from his famous “It’s a trap!” moment, which has since been meme’d to within an inch of its life. And even more hardcore fans love Ackbar so much that they’ve registered their fury online about the character’s death in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (we’ll get to that in a second).
Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli) is credited as one of the writers of 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and he recently took to Twitter to reveal that Ackbar originally had a significant role to play in that prequel – if only J.J. Abrams hadn’t have laid claim to Ackbar first.
