By now I have a sick feeling inside that people might be getting a bit sick and tired of the fantastic actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (His daughter happens to be my neighbor, not that that affects my opinion on him). People may scoff and ignore his next major Blockbuster release Rampage. Well how the fuck can you scoff now when the plot of it is basically happening right there there in Hong Kong. Like twice the length of the other puny hogs around him and with roughly 5000% more muscle bulk than the others. Honestly must be like a god amongst them. I mean I’ve always heard that pigs and hogs only have feeding and breeding on their mind which is why they get castrated on farms, so they only eat and grow massive for meat. Well if they can get their brains together for one second and realize they have a leader who can take on humans and rule the world if we were just going hand to hand. I mean short of a 50 cal bullet I’m not even sure other calibers can take Hogzilla out. I mean yea i know shit head poachers take out Elephants all the time but Hogs are a whole nother animal entirely, literally. Same logic where a 9mm can probably shoot any person but when a crazy coked out juiced meth head comes charging at you. It’s gonna take a couple .45 probably. Well same logic as hogzilla except times 100 and bullets look like they’ll bounce off him when he charges the streets of Hong Kong. I mean it’s eating trash! It’ll eat anything and every thing and continue to bulk up. That includes, half eaten steaks, bullets, trash, humans, skulls, etc. Guy’s such a monster it almost makes me think he’s a marketing ploy now just so people watch Rampage. I don’t want to know monsters can happen naturally out there in the wild.
Universal Pictures is bringing its roster of classic movie monsters back to the forefront with its newly named Dark Universe series — the long-promised web of films kicking off with The Mummy this summer. The next film in the series to hit theaters will be Bride of Frankenstein on Feb. 14, 2019.
Universe has ditched its previous plans to release a Dark Universe movie in 2018 and will instead focus on the 2019 Bride of Frankenstein, which will be directed by Beauty and the Beast’s Bill Condon. There are no details on who will play the titular role, though Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley called the movie a story about “a very modern woman in a very classic tale.”
As for other characters in the cinematic universe, Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem are already onboard to play the roles of The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster, respectively, while Russell Crowe is making his debut as Dr. Jekyll in The Mummy. The cast for that film also includes Tom Cruise as the lead and Sofia Boutella in the role of the mummy. According to Universal, the films are connected by the “mysterious, multi-national organization” Prodigium, specifically led by Dr. Jekyll.
In a video released on its website and Twitter, Universal teased a retrospective of the classic films to build hype for its “new world of gods and monsters.”
Every Head studio Exec in Hollywood right now in board meetings:
Wild news coming out of Hollywood. Honestly didn’t think to consider the fact that The Mummy coming out next month would be part of a shared movie universe. Honestly thought it was more of a Tom Cruise was tired of fighting The Syndicate in the MI franchise and wanted to up the action by fighting mystical monsters like ancient Egyptian mummy gods or whatever. I was gonna go see it but didn’t really take an interest in it till now knowing that it’s suppose to be a small part of a larger franchise and then I looked at the cast and realized Russell Crowe was going to be Doctor Jekyll.
This might be Hollywood getting out of hand and some could say it’s ruining movies. It is getting kind of annoying having to spend money to watch a movie that’s poorly written because it has to share things and lead into things for other movies that’s gonna come out. Its almost like the idea of writing a movie in mind for a sequel except the sequel has almost nothing to do with this one. Almost. If they do it well enough and cover enough of the primary story I could care less. Iron Man 2 alluded to Thor in an end credit. If that’s all there is, little easter eggs, bring it on. But if half way through The Mummy Tom Cruise is speaking to Doctor Jekyll and then half way through morphs into Mr. Hyde and bounces out and we’re just left with that then Id be pissed.
