Ms. Marvel Series Coming To Disney+

Movie Review: #TheBelkoExperiment Welcome to @JamesGunn gore-fest!

Welcome to James Gunn's gore-fest!

Rama returns.

Will “The Belko Experiment” do to office setting workplace what “Jaws” did to swimming in the ocean? All joking aside, this R-rated gore-fest by James Gunn goes to prove that inside the mind of that dude who gave us Marvel’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy” is actually a hidden secret door that when you open it leads to all kinds of twisted imaginations. “The Belko Experiment” is gnarly.

Directed by Greg McLean, scripted by James Gunn, the story focuses on about 80 Americans working in an non-profit corporate workplace in South America and they find themselves locked in their own building. An unknown voice form the intercom system forces them to engage in a deadly game of kill or be killed.

Yes, you can describe it just as that one critic says that this is basically “Battle Royale” meets “Office Space,” it certainly throws “The Hunger Games” out the window. So essentially, the concept itself is not unique, I guess there’s a sick part of us that wants to watch what humans will do to each other if their survival depends on it, the same sick reason why ancient Romans loved watching gladiators fight. This is not the smartest plot that James Gunn has ever concocted but it’s his attempt on tackling psychological and social studies from his own perspective. As a horror thriller, “The Belko Experiment” is choppy and all over the place. It fails to make the office play some kind of a supporting role. And the characters’ weapons, which are basically whatever they could get their hands on, makes it hard for us to take them seriously. The film puts more emphasis on coming up with the most ridiculous ways to die as opposed to building up the suspense. Yes, it begs you to ask what would you do if you were in their situation, but halfway through you couldn’t care less about that anymore and you just want to see them annihilate each other, like an unfiltered deathmatch.

Disney Says Bye To Spider-Man In Any Upcoming Films For Now

Deadline is reporting Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

This comes at a moment when the last two films Kevin Feige produced broke all-time records — Disney’s Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing film of all time, and Spider-Man: Far From Home this week surpassed the James Bond film Skyfall to become the all time highest grossing film for Sony Pictures.

Sources said there are two more Spider-Man films in the works that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland front and center. Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON In Sacramento #RunBrittanyRun

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON On August 22nd at 7:00 PM In Sacramento.

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend — except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.




The Netflix original series Living With Yourself is an inventive existential comedy that asks: do we really want to be better? Miles (Paul Rudd) is a man struggling in life. When he undergoes a novel spa treatment that promises to make him a better person, he finds he’s been replaced by a new and improved version of himself. As he deals with the unintended consequences of his actions, Miles finds he must fight for his wife Kate (Aisling Bea), his career, and his very identity. Told from multiple perspectives, the eight-episode series was created and written by Emmy® Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (The Battle of the Sexes, Little Miss Sunshine) and stars Paul Rudd and...Paul Rudd. Greenberg executive produces with Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern for Likely Story, Tony Hernandez for Jax Media, Dayton, Faris, Rudd, and Jeff Blitz. Living With Yourself launches globally Friday, October 18 on Netflix.
