The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Now that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has come to a close, Marvel Studios is digging into the making of the show with another installment of their documentary series Assembled. This hour-long glimpse into the production of the series features plenty of interviews with director Kari Skogland, head writer Malcolm Spellman, stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and more.

But there are some interesting details on the technical side of shooting that were surprising to hear about. Plus, there’s a makeshift commercial for a clothing store featuring Daniel Brühl in character as Baron Zemo. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Read More »

Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Rush

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). On and off the track, the two drivers as push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: It’s not likely that you’ll hear Ron Howard’s racing drama Rush mentioned in the conversation of the greatest sports dramas of all time. But thanks to the performances of Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl as Formula 1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, the movie features one of the most intense, playful, and rousing rivalries that the big screen has ever seen. The movie not only makes great use of Hemsworth’s natural movie star looks and charisma, but it utilizes Brühl’s impressive skills as a chameleon of a character actor, making for the best of enemies on the track.

Fans, as they are wont to do, began demanding that Marvel release the extended “Zemo cut” of Brühl dancing. And now, Marvel has delivered. Sort of.
