Child's Play 3's Chucky Doll 

There will be a 4K Blu-ray DVD release of the first three Child's Play films. 

A demonic doll named Chucky was introduced in 1988 when the first film in the Child's Play trilogy was released. 

The original horror trilogy has spawned several spinoffs, including Bride of Chucky in 1988, Curse of Chucky in 2013, and the latest Syfy channel TV program Chucky, developed by the original Child's Play creator Don Mancini. 

As a result, a new 4K Blu-ray edition of the original trilogy of Child's Play films has been made available. 

Scream Factory said the DVDs will feature all three films in the trilogy: Tom Holland's Child's Play in 1998, John Lafia's Child's Play 2 in 1990, and Jack Bender's Child's Play 3 in 1991. 

On the 16th of August, the DVDs will be available for purchase. 

On their own, the Child's Play films can be purchased, or as part of a Shout Factory-exclusive package that includes additional Chucky-related merchandise. 

NECA Toys, a prominent toymaker, has created a unique burned Chucky action figure for the sale. 

The Shout Factory website presently has pre-orders available for all of the items.

Chucky has been an iconic horror villain for more than three decades since the premiere of Child's Play. 

It's already sold out on Shout Factory's website, a testament to Chucky's enduring popularity. 

The release of the Child's Play trilogy on 4K Blu-ray might bring new fans to Mancini's creation, and not only those from the Cult of Chucky. Chucky could see a boost in his fan base. 

According to Maverick's producer, Top Gun 3 plans are not imminent.

Following the critical and economic success of Top Gun: Maverick, producer Jerry Bruckheimer claims there are no imminent plans for Top Gun 3.

Following the critical and economic success of Top Gun: Maverick, producer Jerry Bruckheimer claims there are no imminent plans for Top Gun 3.
The long-awaited sequel to Tony Scott's 1986 classic Top Gun finally premiered in theatres this past weekend, breaking many box office records, mostly owing to the COVID-19 epidemic.
Tom Cruise's best opening weekend of his career, with $156 million, was not only achieved by Top Gun 2, which beat out Pirates of the Caribbean 3 (also produced by Bruckheimer).

Val Kilmer, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, and Ed Harris are among the newcomers that join Cruise in the cast.
The film picks up 36 years after the events of the first, with test pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell returning to the Top Gun programme to mentor the son of his late RIO (Radar Intercept Officer) and closest friend, Goose, Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw.
Following the huge box office success of Maverick, many are starting to wonder if there will be a third Top Gun film.

Here is a guide to the cast and returning characters of Top Gun: Maverick.

New Deadline interview with Bruckheimer discusses the possibilities of a third Top Gun film.
Maverick 2 won't be coming any time soon, according to the producer, but he didn't rule out the possibility.
"Let's ride this wave," says Bruckheimer, referring to Maverick's successful opening weekend.

Reviews for Top Gun: Maverick was praising the film's powerful aerial sequences, which were all shot on location, as well as its unexpectedly poignant plot, even before its theatrical debut.
As a result, whereas a third Top Gun film was formerly considered a strong possibility, it now appears certain in light of the film's monetary success.
Even some of the cast of Maverick have expressed interest in a potential sequel, with Teller presenting Top Gun: Rooster as an option for his character in addition to Bruckheimer.

Top Gun 3 might possible, according to the film's director, Powell, who shared his own needs for a high-flying sequel.
It's hard to envision another Top Gun movie without Cruise and director Joseph Kosinski, who was essential in the sequel's devotion to physical filmmaking rather than CGI and green screens.
In any case, perhaps Bruckheimer is correct: it might be wiser to enjoy Top Gun: Maverick for now rather than speculate about Top Gun 3. 

In Empire Strikes Back, Kenobi insists that Yoda was correct about Leia.

In The Empire Strikes Back, Obi-Wan Kenobi reiterates a recurring theme in Disney's Star Wars films: Yoda was accurate about Leia all those years ago. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 

In The Empire Strikes Back, Obi-Wan Kenobi confirms what Yoda said about Leia Organa having "another" hope, continuing a Disney Star Wars theme. 

The Skywalker family has been at the heart of the Star Wars narrative for more than 40 years. 

Throughout the films, the Skywalker Saga has played a significant role, from Anakin in the prequels through to Rey and Kylo Ren in the sequels. 

However, this all began with the original trilogy's principal hero, Luke Skywalker, and his identical twin sister, Princess Leia. 

In spite of their divided response among Star Wars fans, Disney's sequel trilogy did allow for a larger emphasis on other heritage characters. 

When it comes to the sequel trilogy, Leia Organa earned more than her fair amount of screen time, while Luke Skywalker and Han Solo both underwent emotional arcs in their respective films. 

This, together with Obi-Wan Kenobi's reaffirmation, shows Yoda was correct all along concerning the Skywalker sibling. 

Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars: Who Is Playing Leia? 

In 1980, one statement sent Star Wars fans into a frenzy of speculation and debate: "No, there is another." 

In The Empire Strikes Back, Yoda states this in response to Obi-claim Wan's that Luke is the Rebels' only hope in combating the Galactic Empire. 

Many people were baffled as to who Yoda was referring to at the moment. 

After three years, the questions were resolved when Luke and Leia's relationship was confirmed in Return of the Jedi. 

It's no secret to Yoda that Leia is incredibly important to the Skywalkers and the galaxy as a whole, but in Obi-Wan Kenobi, episode 1, her biological father Bail Organa only serves to underscore this fact. 

Bail calls Obi-Wan for aid when Leia is kidnapped by Vect Nehru, saying that Leia is equally as essential to the galaxy as Luke is. 

Obi-Wan is spurred into action, leading him to Daiyu and discovering that Anakin/Darth Vader, the father of Leia and Luke, is still alive. 

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 

Since acquiring Lucasfilm, Disney has given Leia a lot more screen time. 

The princess appears in various episodes of Star Wars: Rebels and was shown to have great force skills in The Last Jedi and was granted her own lightsaber and personal trainer in Luke, as seen in The Rise of Skywalker. 

After all, Yoda was right all those years ago when he said that Leia was important. 

To Yoda, Leia's importance is comparable to Luke's, which makes sense. 

Because his species matures differently, Yoda, who has been around during the High Republic as well as the Clone Wars, is nearly 900 years old at this point. 

A large number of Jedi have been taught under Yoda's tutelage as a result! 

This shows how important Leia is to the Jedi, even if Yoda has trained countless new Jedi throughout the years. 

In Obi-Wan Kenobi, Bail Organa's demands for Leia's help are only strengthened by Disney's extension of the Star Wars world on Disney+. 

Jurassic Park Seatbelt Fan Theory: Sam Neill Denies

No great symbolic sense was made out of the iconic seat belt flailing, Neill claims, indicating another motive for the scene. 

"Seat belts" in the original Jurassic Park movie aren't real, according to actor Sam Neill of the film. 

As Dr. Alan Grant, Neill appeared in the 1993 film version of Jurassic Park directed by Stephen Spielberg. 

In 2001's Jurassic Park III, he reprised the role. 

Aside from a cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, Neill has maintained a steady but somewhat low-key filmography since that point. 

Reuniting with Jurassic World: Dominion director Colin Trevorrow and returning to reprise Neill's role is sure to thrill many fans of the series. 

The original Jurassic Park has been a fertile ground for online speculation since its release. 

The seat belt notion of "life finds a way" is one such hypothesis. 

In the first Jurassic Park film, Dr. Alan Grant has difficulty securing his seatbelt while flying in a helicopter. 

The "female" ends of the seat belt are tied together by him in his haste. 

Even though all the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park are female, this scene has been noted as a prediction of this discovery, which some see as an example of how life "finds a way." 

The "life finds a way" seatbelt idea has been disproved by Neill, putting an end to the online fan speculation. 

In an interview with Gizmodo, Neill was asked about this notion and if Spielberg ever mentioned the symbolism while filming Jurassic Park. 

There is no "huge symbolic meaning" in the fan idea, according to Neil's response. 

Alan Grant's character feature that Grant despises technology serves as an explanation for the event, he says. 

Grant "hates everything to do with the contemporary world," Neill argues, therefore the character gets confused when confronted with surprising intricacy to an apparently ordinary basic gadget. 

See the whole quote from Neill: 

I don't believe it had a wonderful allegorical meaning [laughs]. 

My guess is that wasn't the intent. 

Just how much does Alan Grant despise technology was the subject. 

His aversion to computers is well-documented. 

He despises contemporary society and the use of seatbelts, which you'd think would be easy to understand.. 

However, I've been on helicopters asking, 'Where the heck is the other part of this?' 


That's really fascinating. 

On the Internet, this type of stuff is common. 

"There are two female components."" 

That's a good one. 

"Jurassic Park 3" star Sam Neill plays Dr. Alan Grant. 

However, Neill debunks any notion that Spielberg had this in mind when he made the first picture, despite the theory's amusement. 

Though the "life finds a way" seat belt idea was well-reasoned, it appears less sensible to Neill than to fans. 

It's as if Alan Grant if he were alive in the twenty-first century, were disdainful of the internet and its many hypotheses. 

Neill is still a part of the Jurassic Park franchise, despite this fan theory's demise. 

Alan Grant's long-awaited return to Jurassic World: Dominion will be interesting to see what Colin Trevorrow does with it. 

Some fans are hoping for a nod to the original Jurassic Park, while others are hoping for easter eggs from the previous films in the franchise. 

Is there anything more we can expect once Jurassic World: Dominion opens on June 10? 

The MCU's Next Avengers Team Is Taking a Big Step Forward With Ms. Marvel.

Phase 4 MCU initiatives have already created the basis for Young Avengers appearances, and Ms. Marvel will do even more in the near future. 

In the long run, the planned Ms. Marvel series will help pave the way for an MCU equivalent of Young Avengers. 

Even with all of the preparations that have been made, there is no official confirmation that Young Avengers will be part of the MCU. 

Ms. Marvel's character, on the other hand, increases the likelihood of this happening. 

"The Youthful Avengers" is a group of young superheroes in the comics who may be seen as Marvel's Young Justice or Teen Titans. Several Phase 4 movies and TV series have included characters that make up this group. 

With the introduction of WandaVision's children Billy (Wiccan) and Tommy (Speed), we met Eli Bradley (Patriot), The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Kid Loki), Hawkeye (Kate Bishop), and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (America Chavez). 

The fact that Ant-Man introduced Cassie Lang as Stature and that Avengers: Endgame transformed her into an adolescent leads us to believe that a Young Avengers film is already in the works, even before Phase 4. 

For further information, see the list of upcoming Phase 4 films that will feature the Young Avengers cast. 

In light of the new Ms. Marvel TV series, the concept of a Young Avengers endeavor seems much more plausible. 

Although Kate Bishop and America Chavez are featured as the primary characters in the MCU stories Hawkeye and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness respectively, their true roles as protagonists were played by Hawkeye and Doctor Strange in each of those stories. 

Ms. Marvel, on the other hand, marks the first time an MCU show has featured a teenage protagonist, and with Kamala Khan already confirmed to star in 2023's The Marvels, it's clear that the MCU wants to feature younger characters in leading roles, and Young Avengers would be the most straightforward way to do so. 

Ms. Marvel's World of Avatar 

Iman Vellani is the person in question. 

Kamala Khan is a prominent Indian actress. 

Even though Kamala Khan is a youthful Marvel hero, she has never been a member of the Young Avengers in the comics, which is the biggest problem with that premise. 

Since the Youthful Avengers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are based on the Champions, another young superhero team, Kamala's inclusion in the MCU's Young Avengers squad would be understandable if that team's design cues came from the Champions. 

When Joaquin Torres, another member of the Champions was introduced in the comics as a replacement for Sam Wilson as Falcon, something like that may have already been set up in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. 

However, as having two groups of young superheroes may be redundant, a combination of Young Avengers and the Champions makes the most sense, as they were created as a more simple superhero team. The characters from both groups are already in the MCU. 

There have been rumors about the MCU making Young Avengers for years, and Ms. Marvel makes it far more plausible. 

A superhero team made up of young characters would be a simple and effective method for Marvel to showcase its younger characters, even if Kamala Khan does not appear in the Ms. Marvel books. 

With all that Marvel has done in the previous several years, it isn't hard to see how the Young Avengers will fit into the MCU's overall storyline. 

The Director of Jurassic World Dominion Shares Advice It was Steven Spielberg who gave him this opportunity


Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World Dominion, discusses the counsel Steven Spielberg provided him during working on the film. 

Trevorrow offers Steven Spielberg's advice on making Jurassic World Dominion. 

Jurassic World: Dominion was released as the final film of the series, which began 14 years after Jurassic Park shut down its doors 

Trevorrow's first Jurassic World was a critical and popular success, thanks to the addition of Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt as Claire Dearing and Owen Grady, respectively. 

When dinosaurs escaped from a U.S. mainland facility in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it left a dramatic cliffhanger that set the scenario for Jurassic World: Dominion. 

Dominion's return of Spielberg's original legacy characters was, by far, the most eagerly awaited feature. 

They must find Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and the other survivors of the initial dinosaur rampage in Spielberg's 1993 Jurassic Park: Dr. Ian Malcolm and Dr. Ellie Sattler. Those characters were all able to escape the dinosaurs in that film.

As THR reported, in a recent interview with Trevorrow, the director emphasized the significance of linking Dominion to current events. 

As a bonus, the film's former director provided him some suggestions. 

Dominion's accessible, human element was emphasized by Spielberg, even when the action/adventure environment felt far distant from reality, according to Trevorrow. 

Spielberg also spoke to some of the most famous characters from his own films, and their connection to the everyday. 

Here's what Trevorrow has to say about it: 

"As you watch the movie and recall what he said, you'll find that his counsel is frequently so apparent that it's easy to miss. 

And it said, "Remember the characters," in this film specifically. 

Remember, they are human beings. 

People like them, scientists and parents, are experiencing the most incredible things. 

It turns out he's a master at this, too. 

In the real world, individuals make errors and fail, even Indiana Jones, who is a professor who frequently fails and is injured. 

With the introduction of these actual individuals in real environments, he created a hero that was distinct from everything that had come before. 

Although I adore superhero films, this is a film about our reality with one major difference: it's not a superhero picture." 
Dominion, Trevorrow's follow-up to Spielberg's advice, is out in cinemas. 

It's clear that Claire and Owen are aware of their flaws in the latest part of Jurassic World and seek assistance when necessary. 

Jurassic Park's legacy cast members are shown as average humans who must rely on technology and their own brains to rescue the day rather than superpowers in Dominion. 

The COVID-19 epidemic is also a subtle theme in Dominion, emphasizing humanity's struggle to coexist in harsh and uncertain times. 

According to Steven Spielberg, Trevorrow intends to anchor Jurassic World IV in a wild and crazy dino-filled adventure by focusing on his primary characters. 

Sadly, Dominion has received a poor review from critics. 

The picture received a dismal critical reception, earning a dismal 30% on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Audiences, on the other hand, have given the picture an audience rating of 79%, applauding its action-packed narrative, tremendous nostalgia and intelligent treatment of its returning characters from Jurassic Park. 

Jurassic World Dominion has divided moviegoers and critics, but the last part of the trilogy has generated enormous excitement, making it the highest-grossing non-superhero movie since the beginning of 2019. 

The legendary characters and counsel of Spielberg have endured, regardless of whether or not Trevorrow's approach convinces every spectator. 

In the new Love & Thunder trailer, Thor assembles a new team to face Gorr.

Chris Hemsworth's Thor assembles a formidable crew to take on Gorr the God Butcher in the latest teaser for Thor: Love and Thunder. 

Taking on Gorr the God Butcher is the focus of a new teaser for Chris Hemsworth's Thor: Love and Thunder. 

Thor, who made his MCU debut in 2011, has since appeared in three solo films and a handful of Avengers team-ups, making him a fan favorite. 

Taiki Waititi, the filmmaker of Thor: Ragnarok, is returning at the helm of Thor: Infinity War. 

Christian Bale's character, Gorr the God Butcher, appears in the first trailers for Thor: Love and Thunder. 

Thor appears to be on the villain's hit list of gods he wants to kill. 

Thor: Love and Thunder not only introduces Gorr to the MCU, but it also reunites the original Guardians of the Galaxy and Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, who first appeared in Thor: Ragnarok. 

It has also been revealed that Natalie Portman's Jane Foster, now wielding the Mjölnir and bearing the moniker of Mighty Thor, will be returning in this film. 

More on this: The Thor movie Love & Thunder teased has FOUR different versions of the character. 

Thor is shown assembling a crew to take on Gorr in a new teaser from Marvel. 

Korg, Valkyrie, and the Guardians of the Galaxy are all part of the squad, with the teaser hinting at a major clash. 

The new trailer is here:. 

It's not clear what the heroes will confront when they finally meet Bale's Gorr, but the teaser hints that the picture will have a similar tone to Thor: Ragnarok, with ferocious combat but also Waititi's distinctive odd comedy, like in Thor: Ragnarok. 

In Thor: Love and Thunder, Natalie Portman reprises her role as Jane, and Thor refers to her as "the old ex-girlfriend" to Korg. 

One-on-one battles between Valkyrie and Gorr are also hinted at in the teaser, with Valkyrie using a blazing lightning bolt in the foreground. 

Thor: Love and Thunder, in which Bale will play the villain, is expected to include Gorr as one of Thor's most cruel and dangerous foes ever. 

While Thor may be able to battle Gorr alone, the trailer hints that a squad of heroes will be needed to have any hope of victory. 

With the release of Thor: Love and Thunder slated for July 8th, the fate of Thor and the other heroes versus Gorr the God Butcher has yet to be revealed, but fans won't have to wait long. 

On behalf of Forrest Gump and Pulp Fiction, Tom Hanks defends the latter's win for Best Picture.

Tom Hanks has defended Forrest Gump against claims that the 1994 film is a throwback to a bygone era that didn't deserve to win an Oscar over Pulp Fiction.

Tom Hanks defends Forrest Gump against claims that Pulp Fiction should have won Best Picture. 

When Tom Hanks starred in a passionate picture about a man's journey through American history, it became an unexpected hit, collecting $678 million in 1994. 

In addition, it won the Academy Award for Best Picture, edging out Quentin Tarantino's seminal crime drama Pulp Fiction. 

Before the Academy Awards, Tarantino's picture had already won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1994. 

It was Hanks' rousing and poignant drama, not Tarantino's edgy and post-modern hit-man flick, that received the major prize at the Oscars. 

In addition to being contentious at the time, moviegoers still dispute fiercely to this day that Tarantino's groundbreaking film deserved to win over the popular and perhaps even blatantly deceptive film Forrest Gump.. 

Forrest Gump's Original Casting Plan Would Have Been Much Worse, as We Now Know 

Actor Hanks, on the other hand, is well aware of the criticisms leveled against Forrest Gump and in support of Pulp Fiction. 

A recent New York Times article revealed that Tom Hanks went out of his way to defend the film against Tarantino fans who reject it as "boomer nostalgia". 

According to the performer: 

" The problem with “Forrest Gump” is it made a billion dollars. If we’d just made a successful movie, Bob and I would have been geniuses. But because we made a wildly successful movie, we were diabolical geniuses. Is it a bad problem to have? No, but there’s books of the greatest movies of all time, and “Forrest Gump” doesn’t appear because, oh, it’s this sappy nostalgia fest. Every year there’s an article that goes, “The Movie That Should Have Won Best Picture” and it’s always “Pulp Fiction.” “Pulp Fiction” is a masterpiece without a doubt. Look, I don’t know, but there is a moment of undeniable heartbreaking humanity in “Forrest Gump” when Gary Sinise — he’s playing Lieutenant Dan — and his Asian wife walk up to our house on the day that Forrest and Jenny get married. "

That iconic "magic legs" moment, where Forrest, who had a twisted spine and had to wear "magic legs," meets his amputee buddy Lieutenant Dan (Gary Sinise) with prosthetic limbs and can't control his joy, is what Hanks is referring to here. 

By uttering "magic legs" and "Lieutenant Dan," Forrest's utterance reveals "everything that they had gone through and makes the spectator grateful for every ounce of agony and tragedy that they endured." 

It's "intangible s—t," he argues, and "is not simply jogging along to Duane Eddy's 'Rebel Rouser,'" he continues. 
Despite what the phrase "boomer nostalgia" implies, Tom Hanks is right when he says Forrest Gump has the power to impact an audience on a deeper level. 

Nevertheless, his argument is unlikely to dissuade admirers of Pulp Fiction, who feel that it is considerably more inventive and hip, and ultimately had a far bigger effect on the art of filmmaking. 

Even if Pulp Fiction is likely to have had a bigger impact on other directors, Forrest Gump is undeniably a cultural classic that continues to affect mainstream culture. 

While Forrest Gump was universally adored, Pulp Fiction attracted cinephiles and admirers of all things hip and indie at the time (1994). 

And, of course, the Oscars nearly always favor films that appeal to a broad audience over those that are more specialized. 

In the previous 30 years, one thing hasn't changed: 

Here's Why Spider-Verse 2's New Antagonist Can Only Exist in Cartoon Form

Director Joaquim Dos Santos explains why the film's antagonist, The Spot, could never have been successfully portrayed in real action and why animation was the only option. 

One of the directors of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse explains why the film's new antagonist can only be successfully shown in animated form. 

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the first film in the franchise, was released in 2018 and was the first animated film based on the Spider-Man comics. 

The 2019 animated feature film Into the Spider-Verse was a critical and commercial triumph, earning the Golden Globe and Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film and grossing $375.5 million throughout the world. 

Sony was so confident in the success of Into the Spider-Verse that a sequel picture was approved in the final week of the month leading up to its theatrical release. 

In Across the Spider-Verse, Miles Morales will continue his adventures as Spider-Man, teaming up with Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman and other Spider-Men from different dimensions to take down a dangerous foe. 

As opposed to the Kingpin that Morales faced in the previous film, Jason Schwartzman voices the antagonist The Spot in the upcoming Spider-Verse sequel. 

Related: No Way Home Can Be Copied Across the Spider-Verse, and Two Spider-Man Injustices Are Fixed 

Director Joaquim Dos Santos explained to CartoonBrew (via The Direct) why animation was the best medium for The Spot. 

Dos Santos called The Spot "art come to life," and he has the ability to create portals to other realms, both outside and inside of his own body. 

The filmmaker spoke on why it would be impossible to recreate The Spot in a live-action film and why animation was the only option for a true likeness. 

In another quote, the filmmaker compares Schwartzman's The Spot to paint splattered on a white paper, saying: 

    "And his living ink really is just, I think we’ve all been saying, it’s not just an effect. Its artistry comes to life. It’s something that can only really happen in animation. You can imagine Spot as a dude in a sock suit in a live-action Spider-Man film. It’s not going to work. It’s just not going to work. So his art comes to life. He’s the inkwell spilled on the page. It all goes back to sort of comic books and comic book art."

Marvel's Miles Morales, Spider-Man Across Multiple Dimensions 

The distinctive visual style and high level of artistic achievement in Into the Spider-Verse have been widely praised by critics. 

Trailers for Across the Spider-Verse suggest that it will visually resemble its predecessor, Spider-Man: Homecoming. 

The original Spider-Verse film gained notoriety for reimagining the visual possibilities of animated films; the sequel looks to be leaning into this, pushing the medium's limits by incorporating a character that could not be transferred into any other form. 

In a tribute to the inventiveness of the animation team, one of the film's directors, Justin Thompson, has said that it took a whole year to design the tools and techniques used to produce The Spot. 
There has never been a superhero picture franchise like Spider-Verse. 

While staying true to the source material and creating a compelling version of Miles Morales' Spider-Man, Into the Spider-Verse also succeeded in subverting viewers' expectations of what animated films are capable of and their role in the cinema industry as a whole. 

Since the previous film received praise for its visual flair, great hopes have been placed on the characters, action, and cinematography in Across the Spider-Verse. 

Now that Dos Santos has teased the film's intriguing new animated enemy, there's little doubt that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will deliver on the visual front. 

Ursula's voice actress Pat Carroll has died at the age of 95.

Disney's legendary villain Ursula in the original The Little Mermaid passed away at the age of 95. 

The obituary for Pat Carroll's death 

It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of actress Pat Carroll, well known for her role as Ursula in Disney's The Little Mermaid. 

She was born in Louisiana in 1927 and made her film debut in Hometown Girl in 1948. 

At the beginning of her career as a guest star, she appeared on several television shows and variety shows, including an Emmy-winning role on Caesar's Hour. 

On the stage, Carroll also appeared in musicals, such as the 1965 Cinderella adaption starring Rodgers and Hammerstein. 

A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Garfield were just two of Carroll's many voice acting credits by the 1980s. 

The American re-do of Studio Ghibli's My Neighbor Totoro, which aired in 2005, featured her voice as well. 

Ursula in The Little Mermaid, Disney's 1989 classic, was her most well-known role. 

Since then, she has reprised Ursula in other spin-off projects, including the Kingdom Hearts video game series and two direct-to-video sequels to The Little Mermaid. This performance was a career-defining moment for the seasoned actress. 

Why Ursula was exiled in The Little Mermaid 
THR claims that the 95-year-old actress has died this week, which is sad news. 

After a long battle with pneumonia, the multi-generational entertainer passed away at her Cape Cod, Massachusetts, home. 

Kerry Karsian, her daughter, verified the news Monday, July 31. 

With her late ex-husband Lee Karsian's acting daughter Tara and her casting director daughter Kerry, Carroll leaves a large and accomplished family. 

The Little Mermaid's Ursula 

It seemed only fitting that Carroll's final appearance as Ursula in The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse would be as a cameo. 

In Disney's Tangled The Series, she provided the voice of Old Lady Crowley. 

As Joan in the 2014 comedy film BFFs, Carroll's last live-action role was 

Hollywood comedian Melissa McCarthy has been cast in Carroll's role as Ariel in the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid, which is being produced by Disney. 

Pat Carroll, the actor most known for portraying one of Disney's most infamous villains, left a lasting impression on the worlds of cinema, television, and theatre. 

The actress was as well-known to youngsters in the 1950s for her variety of programs as she is now for her work in animation and movies, and she is well-known to audiences of all ages throughout the world. 

A Disney fan favorite, "Poor Unfortunate Souls" from The Little Mermaid will live on because of her amazing voice. 

We send our condolences to her family during this difficult time. 

According to Robert Patrick, James Gunn or James Cameron is the most entertaining director.

Actor Robert Patrick, well known for his roles in Terminator 2 and Peacemaker, tells who of James Cameron and James Gunn was the most enjoyable to work with. 

Robert Patrick, who starred in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Peacemaker, discusses which director he enjoys working with the most: James Cameron or James Gunn. 

Of the two, Patrick was most recognized for his performance in Cameron's Terminator 2 as the T-1000. 

Cameron was able to push the frontiers of VFX with the T-1000 Terminator model since it was constructed of liquid metal, and the character's demeanor was heavily reliant on Patrick's athletic yet robotic performance. 

In the film Peacemaker, Patrick plays the father of John Cena's lead character. 

Reuniting on screen for the first time since 2006's WWE film The Marine, the two actors featured in Peacemaker, which was written and directed by Gunn. 

On top of being a racist and homophobic criminal mastermind, Auggie Smith is also a supervillain in Peacemaker who goes by the moniker White Dragon. 

As a follow-up, Walking Dead's latest Terminator cameo references Robert Patrick's episode. 

Patrick took part in a rapid-fire Q&A session at the end of the Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast. 

After he was asked a pointed question regarding two of the biggest filmmakers he's worked with, Cameron and Gunn: which director is more enjoyable to work with? 

In response to Rosenbaum's comment that Gunn was the more enjoyable director, Patrick said, "Just like that!" 

Copland, T2, and Walk the Line all appear in this portrait of Robert Patrick. 

Considering Patrick's link to his Terminator 2: Judgement Day villain and Cameron's film, his answer is quite fascinating. 

Patrick reprised his role as the T-1000 in Universal Studios' T2 3-D: Battle Across Time ride and had a brief appearance in John McTiernan's Last Action Hero outside of Terminator 2. 

That said, Patrick hasn't worked with Cameron again since Terminator 2, but that doesn't mean he didn't appreciate working with the filmmaker as much as he did. 

After working with Gunn, Patrick's Peacemaker character was killed off in the season 1 finale, although working with Gunn certainly had an effect on him during the few episodes they worked on (at least in terms of "fun"). 

From Die Hard 2 through Terminator 2, From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and everything in between, Patrick has been a very distinctive presence in Hollywood over the previous three decades. 

It's not a slight on Cameron that Gunn would be more enjoyable to work with, despite the fact that Hollywood rarely indulges in favoritism. 

Since Cameron is recognized for his technical prowess and lack of frills, it stands to reason that Gunn, despite his similarly serious demeanor, would be a better fit for the project. 

In light of what is known about James Gunn and James Cameron's approaches to filmmaking, Patrick's clear statement appears totally sensible. 

For the Biggest Star Wars Debate, Mark Hamill resurrects the Bernie Sanders meme.

When it comes to the age-old Star Wars question of "who shot first," Mark Hamill adds his own comedic spin by resurrecting an old Bernie Sanders joke. 

It's the largest Star Wars discussion, and Mark Hamill has added the Bernie Sanders meme. 

Those who saw the first Star Wars film are clearly enamored with the galaxy far, far away, as seen by their interactions with each other. 

Debates among Star Wars fans have always had a heart as burning as Mustafar's lava behind them, from social media to funny cosplay. 

As the franchise's fan base grows more and more fervent with each new film, fresh controversies develop. 

Han Solo against Greedo at the Cantina at Mos Eisley has been the most long-running and fierce dispute among Star Wars fans, though. 

Since the 1977 debut of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, fans have wondered if Greedo was shot first by the smuggler or his antagonist in the frenzied blaster exchange. 

Despite the fact that Han was the only one who survived, the filth from a blaster bolt is still on the wall behind him, making it impossible to determine who fired the trigger first. 

If you've ever wondered whose character fired the initial shot, you've been going back and forth for decades now.

It's now Luke Skywalker's turn to put his own amusing twist to the argument. 

Bringing a famous meme from 2021 back to life, actor Mark Hamill took to Twitter to post a fan-made edit of Senator Bernie Sanders sitting at the same table as Han and Greedo. 

Adding a final flourish, the actor jots down, "Turns out Bernie shot first," tying everything together with the legendary Star Wars dispute.

To Hamill's credit, he has never shied away from weighing in on Star Wars arguments and speculations, so his contribution is all the more valuable. 

When it comes to Harrison Ford's Han Solo, the actor has provided fans with a slew of fascinating tales. 

This latest contribution to the Han vs. Greedo Star Wars argument is no exception, thanks to Hamill and Ford's lively connection, which has allowed him to unleash his real humorous personality whenever Ford is involved. 

Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill continues to add a heart to jokes like these, proving that he isn't too far removed from the character he portrays. 

The heart of Star Wars is a passionate and funny one like Hamill's, which the franchise has proven itself through references and quips to other galaxy-spanning events. 

Moments like these enhance the Star Wars fandom, encouraging people to take a step back and tackle themes like this with a new and lighthearted perspective so many years after the publication of A New Hope. 

Sanders will not be the winner of the debate, but Hamill's Star Wars joke will stand out among the many other Star Wars gags he has provided to audiences over the years. 

As Spider-Verse merchandise reveals the Cyborg Spider-Woman,


Cyborg Spider-Woman may be a new Spider-Man in the upcoming film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. 

The films merchandising has revealed a new Spider-Man character for the next sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. 

As Kingpin unleashed a vortex to other dimensions that brought in a variety of Spider-Mans, Shamiik Moore took on the mantle of the web-slinging superhero in Sony's 2018 animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. 

The sequel to Into the Spider-Verse, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, is scheduled for release on June 2, 2023, and will see the return of Miles, Spider-Gwen, Peter B. Parker, and Miguel O' Hara/Spider-Man 2099. 

In addition to Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, and Oscar Isaac, the cast of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has been announced to feature newbie Issa Rae as Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman. 

The primary antagonists of Across the Spider-Verse will be voiced by Jason Schwartzman as The Spot and Jorma Taccone as Vulture. 

Sony's sequel is rumored to include 240 characters and take place in six separate realms, while narrative specifics are being withheld. 

There will be a number of Spider-Mans in the picture, one of whom has been revealed as a result of the film's merchandizing.

The official new merchandise for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was just shared on Twitter by user @preterniadotcom. 

Cyborg Spider-inclusion Woman in the film as a collectible figurine appears to be confirmed based on these images. 

With a cannon replacing her right arm, the new character's armor is spectacular yet heavy. 

Take a look at it after the break:

An item from the Across the Spider-Verse merchandising line previously surfaced, revealing the presence of Spider-Punk in the film. 

Cyborg Spider-Woman is a character who has featured in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated series, the 616 Spider-Man comics, and Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4, although very little is known about her. 

She hasn't appeared in any animated shorts, and her only appearance in the comics is during the Edge of Spider-Verse arc. 

Cyborg Spider-Man did appear in the original comics, though, and he was instrumental in thwarting a villain who was out to eradicate Spider-Man from the multiverse. 

Spider-function women in the film necessitate that she be given a gender-swapped version of that character. 

Cyborg Spider-big-screen Woman's debut is very certainly going to have her teaming up with the aforementioned Spider-People to take on The Spot. 

While such is the case, it is possible that this new version of Cyborg Spider-Man will only appear in the movie's numerous other Spideys, prompting the manufacture of a toy. 

Even if she just appears briefly in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Cyborg Spider-Woman may steal the show if Lord and Miller cast the right voice actor to play the role. 

Storytelling in the Star Wars Universe: An Inside Look at George Lucas' Method


Writer Lawrence Kasdan discusses George Lucas' narrative style and how he would always go after the finest potential plot element. 

Lawrence Kasdan, the legendary Star Wars screenwriter, discusses George Lucas' narrative methods. 

Following the success of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Kasdan co-wrote the screenplay for The Empire Strikes Back with the late Leigh Brackett, based on the story written by Lucas. 

Eventually, he would return to work with Lucas on the film's screenplay, Return of the Jedi. 

In a record-breaking deal worth over $4 billion, Lucas sold his production business Lucasfilm and the rights to the Star Wars saga to Disney in 2012. 

In order to make the most of their acquisition, Disney quickly began production on the sequel trilogy, and Kasdan was brought on board to work alongside J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt on the writing for The Force Awakens. 

However, Lucas decided not to get involved with the second trilogy, fearing that his absence from the creative process would be detrimental to the filmmaking process. 

20th Century Fox nearly axed the Death Star Battle from the film (& Killed Star Wars) 

While working with George Lucas at Lucasfilm in the early years was an incredible experience for Kasdan, who just helmed the Disney+ docuseries Light & Magic, he spoke up to Inverse about what it was like working with him. 

According to Kasdan, Lucas's storytelling style would have been akin to that of another renowned director had he not been constrained by monetary constraints. 

See the rest of his remarks after the break: 

When I began working on major motion pictures, I had George lead the way. 

He commanded you to do the best you could. 

My favorite filmmaker, Akira Kurosawa, often asked himself, "What's the best thing that may happen next?" when he was scripting." 

That's where George goes to school, too. 

Obi-Wan Kenobi was played by Alec Guinness. 

Lucasfilm, Inc., 

Fans and filmmakers alike wonder how George Lucas would handle the continuation of his most famous narrative as the Star Wars property continues to grow with a complete slate of streaming television series and plans for new films. 

Fans are apprehensive about a possible "watering down" of his original vision for the series, despite the fact that spectators will be able to enjoy more original Star Wars content than ever before. 

Because of the audience backlash to the Mods in The Book of Boba Fett, any additions to Star Wars canon that isn't in line with George Lucas's original films will be fought vigorously. 

The remarks of Kasdan reveal that Lucas was always concerned with telling the greatest tale possible, even if it meant going in unexpected directions. 

To be sure, Lucasfilm still has the privilege of working with multiple creatives and storytellers who have worked directly with Lucas themselves. 

Dave Filoni, for example, is well-versed in Lucas's creative process and storytelling philosophy in addition to Kasdan. 

While new filmmakers will continue to contribute to the Star Wars canon, it is arguably more crucial than ever for Lucasfilm to preserve the original creative approach of the franchise's original inventor.. 

Dolph Lundgren is Rocky's alter ego. After Stallone's Comments, Drago's Spinoff Is Clarified

To Sylvester Stallone's displeasure, Dolph Lundgren answers Stallone's criticism of a Rocky spin-off centering on Drago and his son, Ivan Drago. 

Sylvester Stallone's heated comments against Dolph Lundgren's role in Drago prompted Dolph Lundgren to respond. 

Rocky was written by Sylvester Stallone in 1975, and he sold the rights to the film to Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff with the agreement that he would play the lead role. 

Stallone hired Lundgren to portray Ivan Drago in 1985's Rocky IV, nine years after the franchise-starter won Best Picture and made him a superstar. 

In Creed II, Michael B. Jordan's Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) faces up against Florian Munteanu's Viktor Drago (Dolph Lundgren's villain's son), who is the son of Lundgren's villain. 

The boxing business is now growing at a rapid pace. 

Another newly disclosed MGM project revolves around Ivan and Viktor Drago and will be directed by Jordan. Creed III will not star Stallone's Italian Stallion. 

Stallone reacted angrily to the news, denouncing the Drago spinoff and accusing producer Winkler of denying him the right to utilise the Rocky name and property.

In an Instagram post, Lundgren clarified his role in a potential Drago spinoff. 

The proposal, according to the actor, is still in the early stages of discussion, but he had assumed that Stallone was involved in its creation. 

The complete post may be seen below: 

Stallone's latest Instagram attack on Winkler comes after he doubled down on his previous remarks, claiming that the actor had not gotten a phone call from Dolph Lundgren, who earned his start in the industry thanks to Stallone's casting decision in Rocky IV. 

Both have worked on the Expendables franchise and will be reunited in the Expend4bles. 

So it's possible that Lundgren assumed Stallone was already aware of the Drago movie prior to the leak, but it's not impossible. 

That Stallone may have finally come to terms with their misunderstanding is encouraging, but it's too bad the consequences of a decision he made 47 years ago are still haunting him. 

Many other films from the 1970s and 1980s have gone to court for character rights in addition to Rocky. 

Screenwriter Victor Miller has regained control of his film Friday the 13th after a legal battle, as has Predator writer John Ridley. 

In the end, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement, and Prey, the prequel, will be available on Hulu on August 5. 

The news that a Drago spin-off was in the works shouldn't have come as a surprise to fans. 

Unexpectedly, Stallone has very no say on the IP (his Rocky prequel series notwithstanding). 

However, if he hadn't sold the rights, Stallone's career wouldn't be what it is now. 

However, it's natural to wish to leave something to one's family. 

Whatever the case may be, Lundgren's supporters can rest easy knowing where he stands in the midst of all the controversy that has erupted outside the ring.
