“John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” is gearing up to take down Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Lionsgate’s third installment of the Keanu Reeves action franchise is over-performing forecasts, which had been in the $30 million and $35 million range. With at least $50 million at 3,850 sites, it should handily beat the fourth weekend of Disney-Marvel’s megahit “Avengers: Endgame,” which is heading for about $30 million.
The first “John Wick” debuted with $14.4 million in 2014 and 2017’s “John Wick: Chapter Two” launched with $30.4 million. “John Wick 3” sees Reeves return as an ex-hitman on the run from assassins. Stuntman-turned-director Chad Stahelski helmed the movie, written by series creator Derek Kolstad. Halle Berry, Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos and Asia Kate Dillon also star.

Chris Rock is teaming with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures for a fresh reimagining on the next Sawmovie. The comedy multihyphenate has written a story that is being adapted by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, and Rock also will executive produce. Lionsgate has dated the film for release on October 23, 2020.
“When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that reimagines and spins off the world of the notorious Jigsaw Killer, we were all-in,” said Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group chairman Joe Drake. “Saw is one of the highest-grossing horror franchises of all-time, and it’s one of Lionsgate’s most successful film series. This upcoming film will still be as mind-bending and intense as all the previous Saw films. Chris conceived this idea, and it will be completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision and passion for this classic horror franchise.”
Said Rock: “I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004. I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.”
Added longtime series producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules: “Chris wants to put his own spin on the Saw franchise in the way Eddie Murphy put a completely fresh perspective on buddy-cop films with 48 Hours. This new Saw is going to be an event film in the making for horror fans. It will have all of the twists and turns and hardcore layers that our fans expect directed by one of the masters of the craft, Darren Lynn Bousman. We can’t wait to get started.”

The Mortal Kombat movie reboot is finally happening, with James Wan (The Conjuring, Aquaman) set to produce. We've been hearing about this project for several years now, with only the occasional update every handful of months. Though, actual progress seemed to be moving at a snail's pace. However, things have finally firmed up and Wan will be teaming up with New Line Cinema to bring the beloved and violent video game franchise to the big screen for modern audiences.
According to a new report, Mortal Kombat will shoot in South Australia, with pre-production set to get underway later this month. It's expected that the production will utilize Australian crews and will even do post-production and visual effects work down under. As previously reported, commercial director Simon McQuoid is set to helm the project, which will serve as his feature directorial debut.

Comedian and actor Tim Conway, best known for his roles in TV’s McHale’s Navy and for making his co-stars on The Carol Burnett Show laugh, has died at 85.
He died on Tuesday morning from water on the brain, his rep toldVariety.
Since Supergirl has gone through 3 origin changed over the years I'll tell just go over her original.
Kara Zor-El was born over a decade and half after Krypton's explosion. At some point her parents found out their nephew Kal-El had survived and was living on Earth. When Kara was fifteen, a meteor shower pierced the dome surrounding Argo City and shredded the lead shielding protecting the Argonians from the radioactive soil. Before Kryptonite poisoning could claim their daughter's life, Zor-El and his wife Allura built a space rocket and sent her to Earth where she was found by her cousin. Superman was thrilled to find out he had family left, but he couldn't take her in, so he sent her to Midvale Orphanage where she adopted Linda Lee's identity as Superman trained her. Eventually Kara was adopted by Fred and Edna Danvers—changing her name to Linda Lee Danvers—and when Kal-El deemed her as ready, her existence was revealed to the world.
I really love the DC comic book statues that Diamond Select Toys have been making. There bright, bold, and just fun. Supergirl, like Superman in terms of the comic books is a symbol of hope, hence the bright colored costume, and still a bit naive in terms of seeing good in everything. Hence the innocence yet lips that are a bit pouty sculpted on Supergirl's face. Even the base she is on is colorful. It's definitely one of the more lighthearted sculpted statues I've seen, and I enjoy that.
You can clear as day see the eyes of wonder on the face. You can see how well done the cheekbones accent the lips in terms of giving her that pouty look. Also notice how the eyes are bright yet realistic. I love how the hair is designed to flow and blow around. Etched in, shaded and painted golden yellow the hair looks great. I also love how her fists are clenched or battle but yet there is still a look of innocence on her face. You can see the costume is faithful, from the vibrant blue to the red and yellow S on her chest. It's shaded, not to look battle worn like a lot of the statues, but shades to make other areas appear brighter. And let me tell you, when the light hits it just right this thing does shine.
This side view gives you a good look at how Supergirl's arms are outstreched back with a clenched fist reasy to give the one two punch while breakfast ng a chain.Notice how each finger is sculpted individually. You also see the extra effort done when presenting her leg. Look how the calf area is placed in the boot. You can see where there would be an actual bent opening on a real leg. I also like how her cape is blowing over to the other side leaving this side open for view. You can notce the shading on her shorts and throughout the costume and bare skin areas. The hair even flows to the side to accent the view of the neck. Even her ear is sculpted to look real. The craftsmanship on this is just fantastic to say the least.
The back is pretty much cape. And that's cool because as you see in the front, the entire body is full desigbed and it's visable from the side. The cap turs primarily to the right and it's etched to show every line where it would be blowing and moving in the real world. The bright red colors with dark red shaded in really makes the cape come alive. And the big "S" symbol on the back of the of the cape gives it a stamp of approval.
Finally we have the base. It's a pretty cool design. It's a combination of fire and almost a molten lava type substance. I I like how the flames are swirling around the boots. The boots look amazing and you can even see the wrinkles and indents in them where the foot is causing pressure.
