The hype was strong this past week as rapid-fire announcements were made about Black Panther‘s expanding cast. Unfortunately, we have to wait two years to see Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan accompany Chadwick Boseman on the big screen. To keep the hype train going, Marvel confirmed the actors and characters for a closer MCU installment, 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Welcome Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, and Karl Urban to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Razzle dazzle, folks! It’s time for my favorite part of the year–Awards Season! With both the SAG Award nominations coming out and the current topic of discussion getting released, we’ve got a lot of potential winners of greatness. Though I could take a moment and give some attention to all the various ceremonies coming up, I think it is best to focus on one of the two big heavy hitters–The Golden Globes. Sometimes known as a fancy booze party rather than a respectable event, this is definitely one of the shows to watch for this season. Curious to know the nominees? Let’s take a look at the list.
When I look at photographs and images from the ’50s, much of it brings a sense of utter joy and delight. A tribute to an era that was built on the positive notions of those that survived the past World War, looking to the future at their baby boomer offspring and chrome automobiles. But somewhere, beneath the cracks, we begin to realize that those pictures do not tell the complete story–for this was a time of important works of art, ones that spoke of a more deeper decade than we could ever imagine. One such novel, The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, serves as the inspiration for Todd Hayne’s latest project, Carol, a movie that explores the more interesting aspects of that mysterious time.
