Mark Strong spills on Shazam! secrecy

–SNIP–

Speaking at the premiere of Cirque du Soleil ‘OVO’ at The Royal Albert Hall in London, he spilled: "If you stop reading the script for 20 seconds then the whole thing goes fuzzy and you have to start again. Everything is watermarked and traceable too.

"I’m playing an evil bastard called Doctor Sivana, they are always the best characters to play, the most fun. I was Sinestro in Green Lantern which I though was a rather good film but it didn’t do what they wanted so I feel like I’ve got unfinished business in the DC world, I played a pretty evil character in that and he was meant to get even worse in the second one but that never happened but I think I’m going to get the chance to do that in ‘Shazam!’, I hope so."

–SNIP–

Someone liked ‘Green Lantern’ after all.

Well Langella also liked Masters of the Universe.

When you’re 10/10 GOAT in something, I bet it holds a special place.


#3598

Of all things, you certainly couldn’t fault Strong’s performance as sinestro. As a lifelong GL fan I couldn’t have asked for a better adaptation, there!


#3599

Yes, Strong as Sinestro and all the stuff in space were enjoyable. Anything happening on Earth and the lack of chemistry between Reynolds and (forget her name) killed the movie.


#3600

His wife I believe :wink:


#3601

Yes, Blake Lively. Must suck for them to have read the reviews and everyone saying the same thing.


#3602

Hmm. A bit of a step down from Famuyiwa. Did anyone like Vacation?


#3603

Never saw it.
Was it bad?

He also directed Game Night, and I’ll hold off until that happens. Basing it of Flashpoint is still a dumb idea.


#3604

It was spectacularly bad. It was the first comedy I ever watched where the way it was shot somehow made it aggressively unfunny. They relied on cheap CGI to hit the punchlines of the jokes and the comedic timing was noticeably off. I laughed once at one really brutal and morbid joke, and that was it.

I really liked Homecoming, though.

#3606

Well, among other things, this trailer answered my question as to which Vanessa Williams is voicing Amanda Waller (Yes, there’s more than one).


#3607

#3608

YES!

Abo Wizard lives!

Interesting “blind item” here: http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2018/01/himmmm-blind-item-2_19.html


#3610

The “family” is the Nolan brothers.


#3611

Not the Snyders? Really?


#3612

The Krankies.


#3613

Why would you make the Snyder-verse the one for children!? Didn’t they watch Man of Steel???


#3614

That sounds more like the Universal Monsters debacle.


#3615

That’s a good point. Which other failed attempts at building a cinematic universe can we attribute this to?
