Dwayne Johnson really wants us all to know that he’s currently filming his newest project, a video game adaptation of Rampage, about a trio of oversized beasts who go on a, well, rampage across a city, and only a few brave souls can stop them. Those brave souls, this time, are The Rock himself, Naomie Harris, and The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who appears in Johnson’s latest Instagram from the set.
Dwayne Johnson is the gift that keeps on giving. Not only does the actor continue to produce some of the best action movies around, but he also keeps fans entertained between releases by sharing incredible behind-the-scenes footage and images from his movies. This was the case with The Fate of the Furious and the upcoming Jumanji sequel, and now Johnson is at it again with Rampage, his 2018 movie based on the popular video game franchise of the same name.
Stretching back as far as 1890, the British monarchy has made a habit of releasing a New Years Honors List every December 31, naming outstanding Britons who will receive new orders of chivalry or other official designation. (It’s a type of being knighted, but special in some key way that I don’t fully understand; Britain’s system of honors is awful confusing.) The list singles out British-born figures who have made outstanding contributions to the nation’s “society, business, or culture.” That particular definition comes from Deadline, who noted earlier today that some familiar faces from the cinema of 2016 will soon join the esteemed ranks of the hono(u)red British: actors Mark Rylance and Naomie Harris will be among the class of 2016 inductees, adding a few letters (but what important letters they are) to their names.
The newest TV spot for Spectre is short and sweet and straight to the point, but it does offer a little bit of new footage for fans clamoring to see more of the 24th James Bond film before it hits theaters. There’s some additional flashes of action, as well as looks at new characters played by Lea Seydoux and Christoph Waltz, the latter of whom is reportedly playing a new iteration of classic Bond foil Blofeld.
Given the evolution of the women in James Bond films (and the evolution of actual thinking in real life), maybe it’s time we started referring to them as Bond Women instead of Bond Girls — Bond Girls just sounds like they’re posing for a beer calendar. At any rate, new photos and information from Spectre have arrived to give us a proper introduction to the ladies of Bond’s latest outing.
If it's a Weinstein Company film, you can usually bet that it's going to be going for Oscars, so don't be surprised if one of the year's big awards contenders is 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.' It stars Idris Elba and Naomie Harris, and is due out at the end of the year, so this new trailer hints at its award possibilities.
