A big part of what makes the John Wick franchise so popular is its mythology. It’s an action-packed trilogy that sees a secret world of assassins living amongst the populous. The fight choreography is splendid, with each fight and gun battle looking more like a beautiful stylized dance. It is the perfect way to showcase stunt work and highlight how vital stunt people are to a film like this one.

Now, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum gets its home release on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD. Check out my review of the film and all of its bonus features here below.

The Lighthouse

You seriously have to love what A24 is able to put out time and time again. The studio pushes the boundaries of cinema with their collection of films, which are directed by visionaries and great storytellers.

Take for instance Robert Eggers, the man behind this year’s The Lighthouse. Shot entirely in black and white, this maritime fantasy horror is also a dark comedy that delves into the madness that two lighthouse men, played by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, go into when they find themselves seeing strange and mysterious things on a remote New England island in the 1890s.

A24 has released a new trailer for the film, and you can check it out below.

Apple TV Plus

Apple is among the media giants that will be entering the streaming business. And now we are getting a better look at the service from their Apple Events. Among the things that were talked about, including the new iPhone 11, was when Apple TV+ will be launched and how much it will cost.

We can expect to start watching Apple TV+ content starting November 1, 2019, and the cost to access that content will be $4.99 per month. That’s $2.00 less than the $7.00 Disney is charging for their Disney+ streaming service, Netflix’s $12.99 per month for streaming alone, HBO Now’s $15.99 per month, and Amazon Prime’s $8.25 per month. Essentially, it is the cheapest of the entire lot. But there may be a good reason for that. More on the report below.

Paramount To Bring A ‘Face/Off’ Remake From ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Writer

Face/Off

John Woo’s 1997 hit Face/Off was a stylized action blockbuster with an absurd premise that was perfectly paired with performances from John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. An FBI agent (Travolta) surgically traded faces with a psychotic killer (Cage) so that he could discover the location of a bomb that could cause massive devastation.

The film was a commercial success, and since studios are high on getting remakes and reboots into theaters, it should come as no surprise that there are reports that Paramount is now developing a remake. More on the report below.

Aladdin (1992)
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray
Director: Ron Clements, John Musker
Writer: Ron Clements, John Musker, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio
Cast: Scott Weinger, Robin Williams, Linda Larkin, Jonathan Freeman, Frank Welker, Gilbert Gottfried, Douglas Seale
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated G | 90 Minutes
Release date: September 10, 2019

Disney adapting their animated classics into live-action films are sometimes predicated on the critical and commercial success of the predecessor, though the studio’s recent wave of live-action adaptations has been met with varying degrees of success. But what matters most is how these films perform at the box office, and as long as they at a hit, the studio will come out with more and more. And, of course, none of these live-action films would be here without their animated origins.

Take, for instance, 1992’s Aladdin, before we can get into reviewing the live-action film from Guy Ritchie (to come soon), we must look back at the animated film by Ron Clements and John Musker. Considered to be one of the best from the Disney film era known as the Disney Renaissance, Aladdin is a beautifully animated musical that continues to hold up well. But with new technologies and televisions bringing us higher definition and better picture quality, it was only a matter of time before Disney started to go back in their vaults to release upgraded versions of their greatest hits.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

There’s no doubt that Spider-Man fans were holding on to the hope that Sony and Disney could find some sort of common ground after they broke up. Sony seemed to place the blame on Disney for being too greedy, while star Tom Holland remained optimistic about the situation.

However, at a recent entertainment summit, Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra said “for the moment the door is closed.” More on the report below.
