heart of stone

Gal Gadot may already have Wonder Woman under her belt, but now she’s going to add another high-profile role to her resume: the “female” James Bond. Well, so to speak. Gadot is set to star in Heart of Stone, an original spy thriller that’s being billed as a “female spin on action franchises like Mission: Impossible and 007.”

Justice League Reshoots Footage Length

When news of Zack Snyder‘s cut of Justice League coming to HBO Max was first announced, it was said that the director wouldn’t be bringing back any cast members to shoot new scenes. But the streaming service changed their mind as we learned back in September that Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher would be coming back as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg to shoot footage for the director’s cut of the DC Comics superhero movie. That made us think the reshoots would be fairly substantial, but according to Zack Snyder himself, the reshoots will only add four minutes or five minutes of new footage. Read More »

Red Notice photos

Like most Hollywood productions, the Netflix action heist comedy Red Notice temporarily shut down back in March when the pandemic began to present itself as the global threat we now know it to be. Producer and star Dwayne Johnson announced in a March 14 Instagram post that the film would be pulling the plug for at least two weeks, and included the following phrase in his seemingly inspirational caption: “Our country will do its job, as the rest of the world will do theirs.” Oh, how young and naive we all were then.

But we finally have some much-needed good news: Red Notice, which resumed production under strict safety protocols in early September, has finally finished shooting – and there are some new photos from the movie, too. Check out the photos, which feature Johnson and co-stars Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds in action.

wonder woman 1984 diana and steve

Chris Pine sat in his chair on the set of Wonder Woman 1984, his brow furrowed as he pondered the question from one of the journalists visiting the set of the superhero film. The answer he gave was just as serious and erudite as he appears to be — much more philosophical than we’re used to getting on the set of a comic book movie. But as Pine rattles off words like “archaic” and “cataclysmic,” all eyes except his suddenly turn to Gal Gadot behind him, comically poised to creep up and grab his shoulder, surprising Pine. Pine’s face lights up, and the serious atmosphere that had taken hold of the entire group beforehand eases, as Gadot settles into a seat next to Pine and the two of them give the group a peek of the sparkling banter that made the first Wonder Woman such a hit.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Cheetah is one of Wonder Woman’s most famous rogues, even considered by some to be the Amazonian princess’ main archnemesis. And on paper, it’s easy to see why: Cheetah is all rage and envy to Wonder Woman’s subdued nobility; matching Diana punch-for-punch in sheer physical power but not in emotional strength. Created by William Moulton Marston as an allegory for the folly of “abnormal emotions” like jealousy and to embody the “less developed women,” Cheetah (played by Kristen Wiig in the film) was conceived as the perfect emotional foil for Wonder Woman, and has maintained that reputation. For Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins, she was too juicy of a character to not use.

“There have been many physical manifestations of Cheetah, but the core has always been the same, which is someone who wishes they could be like these other superheroes and gods, ” Jenkins told /Film on the set of Wonder Woman 1984. It’s a fitting follow-up to Wonder Woman, which touched on how gods interfere in the lives of men, to then explore men (or women) who wish to be god-like in Wonder Woman 1984. So fitting that Jenkins had apparently considered planting the seeds of Wonder Woman 1984 in the first film, right down to the introduction of Cheetah.
