It feels like a lifetime ago when I was sharing updates of a movie from a comic-con but here we are. This week Cinemacon is taking place and there have been a whole bunch of exciting developments. So, let’s get to the movie news of the week.
The Greta Gerwig-helmed Barbie film starring Margot Robbie as Barbie, Ryan Gosling as Ken, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Emma Mackey, Alexandra Shipp, Issa Rae, and so many other actors has released its first official image. Here it is.
This is an amazing picture for only one reason: the car. It looks like an actual Barbie car brought to life and that alone is shocking. Now, is Margot Robbie giving me Barbie vibes? She’s blond, she’s pretty, but I’m not quite sure yet. We’ll see.
Apparently will be dropping on the same day as Oppenheimer next year, July 23.
The Batman is officially getting a sequel with Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves returning! While this isn’t necessarily surprising it is nice to hear.
Moon Knight did it. It made me cry…a lot. This week’s episode was origin storytelling at its finest. Like WandaVision‘s eighth episode, it takes a look back through Marc’s life and what we learn is nothing short of depressing.
This episode featured DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) in a way that felt so comprehensive and perfectly illustrated in this series. When the episode ended I literally couldn’t stop crying, even as I read people’s tweets about the episode and their tearful reactions to the series’ shocking outcome.
I feel like I know what’s going to happen next week which is fine because honestly, I want it to transpire. I need the showdown between Moon Knight and Ammit. I’m just hoping the finale wraps up this portion of the story in a nice bow and leads into an announcement of a second season because I need more Moon Knight. He’s a fascinating character and Oscar Isaac is a GREAT addition to the MCU, which is something I didn’t expect at all.
All in all, next week’s finale is setting up to be one to remember…I think.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
