All the Money in the World

News of Mark Wahlberg taking a $1.5 million paycheck for his reshoots on Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World came as a shock to many, especially when his co-star Michelle Williams was only paid 1% of that. Details of the staggering wage gap only got darker when it was reported that Wahlberg would only approve of Christopher Plummer, who was to be Kevin Spacey‘s replacement, if he got paid a large sum of money. It was a polarizing subject, with some saying Wahlberg was greedy, while others criticized Williams for not asking enough. To make matters worse, both are represented by the same agency, WME.

However, in order to quell an already volatile situation, Wahlberg has donated his $1.5 million paycheck to the Time’s Up movement. Plus, Williams has released a statement responding to the donation. More on the story below.

There Was A Staggering Pay Difference Between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg For ‘All The Money In The World’ Reshoots

All The Money in the World

After Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault last year, the actor was taken off numerous projects from his Master Class to House of Cards. But the one move that made shockwaves was when Ridley Scott decided to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes in All the Money in the World and replace him with Christopher Plummer. It was a daunting task. And one that proved to be costly. But the film ended up being recognized by many for Scott’s ability to complete the reshoots in nine to ten days, and still release the film on its original release date.

The reshoots were only one part of the story, however. It’s how much the film’s co-stars were paid that is making headlines now. According to various reports, the pay between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg was staggeringly different. The former was only paid a mere $80 dollars per day, while the latter took home a near $2 million paycheck. More on this story below.

Ridley Scott in talks for Merlin saga

Ridley Scott is a man who never takes breaks, and as such, he is always adding titles to his pile of films that are slated to be made. He proved himself to be a tireless filmmaker when he finished reshooting All The Money In The World after having to cut Kevin Spacey out of the film and replacing him with Christopher Plummer. Scott spent nine days effectively erasing the disgraced Spacey out of the film and substituting his scenes with that of Plummer’s. So as we wait to see what Scott has in store for us next, the director looks to be adding to his filmmaking slate with Disney.

According to new reports, Scott will be collaborating with Disney to work on an adaptation of The Merlin Saga, which centers on the legendary wizard’s early years before he became the advisor to King Arthur. More On the story below.

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 banner

Blade Runner 2049
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Screenwriter: Hampton Fancher, Michael Green
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated R | 163 Minutes
Release Date: October 6, 2017

Blade Runner doesn’t have all the flashy substance that makes up what some would say is a traditional sci-fi film, but it sure does have all the nuances and subtleties that would make for a great sci-fi noir. Slow-burning detective stories still continue to unravel even in the distant future. You still have the stark monochromatic colors, a constant stream of pessimism, and a character that is drawn into the world of crime. You add a splash of sci-fi, that not only mixes well together, but proves that the elements can work in the right hands.

Blade Runner 2049, Denis Villeneuve‘s strikingly visual follow-up, takes place 30 years after Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The filmmaker stays true to the themes explored by Scott’s adaptation of the Philip K. Dick book (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), while also building upon the mystery and intrigue, as well as adding even more themes that will have audiences talking, even well after the film has ended. Check out the full review below.

Blade Runner 2049 Prequel Short "Black Out 2022"

The final of three Blade Runner 2049 prequel shorts, titled “Black Out 2022,” was released recently.

This one is a little different from the previous two shorts, “2036: Nexus Dawn” and “2048: Nowhere to Run.” For one thing this short is much longer, clocking in at nearly 16 minutes in length. The other two were only around six minutes in length. It’s also not live-action like the previous two were. The final prequel short was instead created in the style of Japanese anime. In fact, it was made by Shinichiro Watanabe of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo fame.

You can find more on Blade Runner 2049 and check out the new prequel short below.

SDCC 2017: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Is Out With The Old And In With The New

SDCC 2017 Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi cult classic. Because the first film started in 2019, the panel projected a timeline of events that has happened in between the first film and now. A new line of replicants have been built, one of them being played by Dave Bautista‘s character, and while all of that exposition was nice. It was Jared Leto‘s entrance that really stole the show. He was there as a hologram. How could anyone beat that?

Check out more on their SDCC 2017 panel below.
