[BOX OFFICE] ‘JOKER’ HAS PASSED $1 BILLION

Joker has passed $1 BILLION at the Box Office

The greatest revelation of the year, without doubt, is Joker.

Being a DC and low-budget movie, few expected it to became the phenomenon it did. Top that with an R-Rating and things would’ve seemed logic.

But… surprise, surprise! It’s the first R-Rated movie in the history to cross the $1 Billion mark and also with the lowest budget in the highly exclusive $1B club. China is also a big market, yet Joker was banned over there, making these figures even more impressive.

I’ve seen it at the theaters and enjoyed it. Already in one of the first scenes (the one on the buss) it was revealed to me that Jaquin Phoenix IS a GREAT ACTOR. He has through this movie a great impact.

I think they did the things the way they did for the fans to speculate and to leave all doors open for, what I hope will become, more stories about the great DC villain. The ball is in your half, Warner, WE WANT MORE!!

‘KRYPTON’ SEASON 2 TRAILER HAS DOOMSDAY, BRAINIAC, ZOD AND LOBO

Lobo in Krypton season 2 trailer

The second season of the DC series will arrive this summer. Doomsday and Brainiac I’ve seen in SMALLVILLE, a show that aired from 2001 to 2011 and centered around a teenage/young adult Superman (played by Tom Welling). Zod I know of from MAN OF STEEL, the Superman movie with Henry Cavill as main role. He was the main villain.

Fans of this show are pretty excited over the characters and there is a certain buzz around the Internet, mainly the reason to why I wanted to post this. Much thanks to the Lobo reveal (present in picture above).

Timeweise, the show is set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet – Krypton – and follows Superman’s grandfather.

The video description sais that:
Zod! Brainiac! Doomsday! Lobo! Seg-El’s enemies are closing in, and the future of his home planet of Krypton has been stolen. Join the fight to take it back when Krypton returns to SYFY on June 12.

So there you have it: you’ve got some time to catch up with the show.

The synopsis released for this season is:
What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He’s on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

‘VENOM’ SEQUEL IS OFFICIAL

In something that DOES NOT come as a BIG SURPRISE, Sony has announced the VENOM sequel. Original screenwriter Kelly Marcel will return to write the follow-up but a new director may be hired thus replacing Ruben Fleischer.

Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson are expected to be part of the cast. If the end-credits scene of the original is a hint, then we’ll get to see Carnage’s debut on the big screen.

The original VENOM was released last year and it grossed more than $800 million globally, making it one of the heavy-weights of the year. Critics were meh, but audience had a blast.

No release date is set yet but it’s believed that it will arrive in theaters some time during 2020. We’ll keep fingers crossed.
