Chris Pine may have found his next starring role – and hopefully it will require plenty of goofy accents.
He’ll lead Paramount’s remake/reboot of The Saint, a spy thriller about a literary character named Simon Templar, a master of disguise who serves as a Robin Hood-type figure who robs corrupt politicians or evil rich people and redistributes their ill-gotten wealth to those in need. Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman) is set to direct.

Wonder Woman 1984 won’t be coming out in June as originally planned thanks to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down movie theaters. As of now, the DC Comics sequel is slated for release in August, but we’re still getting new details about the movie thanks to magazines who had to prep their promotional spreads for the movie months in advance.
Today, two new photos from Wonder Woman 1984 have arrived along with a few new details about where we find Diana of Themyscira in the 1980s. It should come as no surprise that with no friends or family alive and near her in 1984, she finds herself very lonely. But as we’ve seen in the trailers, a familiar face is about to return.

Chris Pine is going to slap on some thick-framed glasses and grow himself a mustache to play noted sex symbol Walter Cronkite in Newsflash, which focuses on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Rather than push another JFK conspiracy theory, Newsflash chronicles Kennedy’s death through the lens of how it was covered by the TV news. Cronkite’s noticeable attempt to fight back tears when announcing Kennedy’s death live on air became a powerful image that still resonates to this day, and his coverage of the assassination made him one of the most trusted newsmen in America.

Earlier this week, director Patty Jenkins debuted a jaw-dropping poster for Wonder Woman 1984 on her Twitter feed, but the only footage that’s been shown so far was what played at Comic-Con last year and the additional brief look we saw at CinemaCon this April.
One aspect of the sequel we’ve been super curious about is the return of Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), who seemingly met his end in the climactic moments of the 2017 original. In a new interview, Pine was asked about the differences between working on this sequel and working on the first film, and while he didn’t specifically answer how it’s possible that his character comes back, he did talk about how this film operates and how Steve Trevor operates within it. Check out his quotes below. Read More »
One of the hallmarks of Peak TV – the era in which we live where there’s just so much good TV, too much for any one person to watch – is the presence of people you typically only associate with the big screen. Certainly, some of the agreed-upon best TV shows of the 21st century are able to tell longer-form stories than any film, or even series of films, could. But shows like The Sopranos, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and others also stand out either because they looked as impressive as films or because they featured people from the world of film on a small screen, no longer thought of as slumming it.
Of course, the downside of the migration of cinematic talent to the world of TV is that it’s no longer automatically remarkable to see an A-list movie star on a TV show, or a big-name director behind the camera of such a show. Timing, as they say, is everything, and timing is part of what makes the TNT limited series I Am the Night something of a letdown. It ought to be a big deal — the director and one of the stars of last year’s zeitgeist-y superhero film Wonder Woman have reunited for a period-piece crime drama that incorporates both fictionalized elements as well as the infamous Black Dahlia Killer to tell the story of a young woman whose past is far more sordid than even she realized. Instead, I Am the Night is a show that feels out of place in 2019.

Wonder Woman took us back to World War I. Wonder Woman 1984 is set to take us on back to the ’80s. So it would seem apparent that director Patty Jenkins would set the still-unconfirmed Wonder Woman 3 in another time period in the past, right? Not so. Jenkins, who recently suggested that third Wonder Woman movie would be her last, wants to finally bring Diana to the present. But, as we learn more Wonder Woman 3 details from both Jenkins and co-star Chris Pine, Gal Gadot‘s Diana will probably be heading to the future alone.

Hard-boiled dialogue. Trips to the morgue. Boozy floozies. Sharp-dressed men lurking in the shadows. Dames, death and danger. We’re knee-deep in the world of pulp and noir. This is a highway trafficked by Raymond Chandler and James Ellroy. Where the women are imperiled, the men are corrupt, and not even all the stars of Hollywood can cut through the darkness. Say hello to I Am the Night.
The Wonder Woman team of director Patty Jenkins and actor Chris Pine re-team to tell this tantalizing tale, and the results should please viewers looking for something akin to True Detective meets L.A. Confidential. It’s not quite as good as either of those titles (I Am the Night very badly wants to be a James Ellroy novel come to life, but can never match Ellroy’s edge), but it does the trick.
