Box Office: ‘Shang-Chi’ Dazzles With Mighty $71.4 Million Opening Weekend



Natalie Portman on Summer Reading, Britney Spears, and the Scent of Love


Some behind-the-scenes glimpses of Thor have made the rounds online. What kind of training have you undergone for the role? 


It was really fun. I worked with a trainer, Naomi Pendergast, for, I think it was, four months before shooting, and then obviously all the way through filming. We did a lot of weight training and a lot of protein shakes—heavyweight training that I haven’t ever done before. Of course, I’ve never really aimed to get bulky. It was very physical, so it was a lot of both agility work and also strength work.


How Disney and Scarlett Johansson Reached the Point of No Return


The Disney/Johansson Schism Reportedly Soured a New Russo Bros/Marvel Deal


According to The Wall Street Journal, Anthony and Joe Russo "hit an impasse" in their negotiations to helm another MCU film after word broke that Johansson is suing Disney for releasing Black Widow day and date in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access without re-negotiating her original contract, which stipulated the film would open exclusively in theaters. The Russo Bros. are now said to be wary of signing a new deal until they have a clear idea of how their next MCU movie would be distributed, as well as how the duo's payment would be handled.


The Russo Brothers have directed four Marvel Studios films so far, beginning with 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and continuing on to Captain America: Civil War in 2016, Avengers: Infinity War in 2018 and Avengers: Endgame in 2019. All four movies were critical and box office hits, with Endgame becoming the highest-grossing film of all time (not adjusted for inflation in ticket prices) until Avatar's re-release in China in March. The Russos have since turned their attention to directing the Apple TV+ drama Cherry and Netflix's action movie The Gray Man while leaving the door open for their return to the MCU in the future.


‘Blade’ Director Bassam Tariq Teases MCU Vision: ‘We Can’t Deny What Wesley Snipes Did’


“What’s exciting about the film that we’re making is [there] hasn’t been a canon for ‘Blade,’ as we’re reading through the comics and everything,” said Tariq. “Him being a daywalker is the one thing that’s been established, and you know we can’t deny what Wesley Snipes did, which was he basically got this whole ball rolling. A Black man created the superhero world that we’re in, that’s just the truth. For me to now be working with somebody as talented and a juggernaut as Mahershala Ali, and the writer Stacy Osei-Kuffour, I’m just so — I’m so honored to be working with real Black juggernauts and Black talent. For me to just be with them in this room and listen and learn as I build this out, it’s really an honor.”




How Egyptian Filmmaker Mohamed Diab Went From Cairo to Marvel (Via Palestine)


“Definitely, when you see this you will not recognize that it’s me directing it,” he says. “But I’m so proud of it. I always love to have a new challenge.”


“My movies are hard, serious and about big topics, and I feel strongly that Moon Knight is going to be like that — it’s going to be entertainment but also heavy,” he says. “At the same time, we’re being so creative with the jokes and with the action. As I keep saying to my wife: I can’t believe I’m funny in another language!”
