David Leitch Interview

Don’t say the word “grounded” to director David Leitch. The filmmaker behind Atomic BlondeDeadpool 2, and most recently, Hobbs & Shaw, wants his big blockbusters to live in a fantasy land far, far away from gritty reality. He wants his escapism to look cool and stylish, not familiar. It’s probably why his sensibilities were suited for the Fast & Furious franchise, which are basically superhero movies with cars instead of capes.

Hobbs & Shaw is probably the most fantastical entry in the series, with minor elements of science-fiction and superhuman acts performed by the titular duo. Realism has no place in this franchise, which allowed Leitch to have as much fun as possible with all the franchise’s toys and staples. While staying true to the family spirit and ridiculousness of the franchise, Leitch also brought his eye-popping graphic novel style to the Fast & Furious franchise.

Recently, at a press day for the Hobbs & Shaw Blu-Ray release, the filmmaker told us about bringing his style to the series, his fondness of John Woo and Jackie Chan, and his distaste of the word “grounded.”

jumanji the next level trailer

After the sensational box office success of 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, director Jake Kasdan and co. knew they had to bring its sequel to a whole new level. And they did more than simply title the third Jumanji film Jumanji: The Next Level. They brought in two legendary comedians in the form of Danny DeVito and Danny Glover — for about the 15 minutes of the movie. The rest of the movie will consist of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart doing DeVito and Glover impressions, respectively. Genius.

Jumanji: The Next Level takes us back into the world of the video game, which has now malfunctioned and accidentally pulled in DeVito and Glover’s cranky grandpas, swapping them in the bodies of Johnson’s Dr. Bravestone and Hart’s Franklin Finbar. Shenanigans naturally ensue. Watch the new Jumanji The Next Level trailer below.

There’s something to say about consistency in television. How many mighty shows have we seen fall in their final seasons? Too many, but for a show to stay true to its self, evolve, and entertain for many years, that’s a feat. It’s an accomplishment HBO’s Ballers pulled off through its five-year run on HBO, where it was the cable network’s most popular 30-minute comedy, and yet not the most popular comedy to talk about. It wasn’t ever a show to tweet about every Sunday anyway, but in spite of generally solid reviews for a solid show, there wasn’t much love for a Dwayne Johnson performance that deserved more attention. But Ballers was one of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s faves for good reason.
