Harrison Ford in Yellowstone Spinoff ‘1932’

The Yellowstone spinoff series 1932 has welcomed Academy Award winner Helen Mirren and Academy Award candidate Harrison Ford to its roster, according to Paramount+. 1932 will begin a new chapter in Taylor Sheridan's Western universe, following a new generation of the Dutton family.

Yellowstone, directed by Sheridan, recounts the difficulties of the Dutton family, led by patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner), as they strive to preserve control of the United States' largest contiguous cattle ranch. Yellowstone, set in the present day, is a different kind of Western, one that is more related to the present than to the past. The original series was just renewed for a fifth season by Paramount+, and Sheridan is developing a prequel series, 1883, starring Sam Elliot, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw.


Nicolas Cage’s New Film Blu-ray Release Date Revealed

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, an adventure comedy starring Nicolas Cage, has been given an official Blu-ray release date by Lionsgate. In the film, Cage plays himself, or a version of himself who is creatively unfulfilled and heavily in debt. As a result, he accepts a million-dollar job to attend a superfan's birthday party (Pedro Pascal). The film only becomes more absurd from there.

The picture will be accessible digitally on June 7th, according to Lionsgate. On June 21, it will be released on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (with Blu-ray and Digital), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital), DVD, and On-Demand. Deleted sequences, interviews with Cage, and behind-the-scenes glimpses at how the stunts and special effects were recorded, to mention a few, are all included in the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital versions. Fans can acquire the DVD editions, which include deleted scenes and a Q&A with the cast and producers at SXSW, among other things.


Chris Hemsworth

In the new teaser for Netflix's Spiderhead, Chris Hemsworth plays a sinister researcher. Hemsworth will next be seen in Thor: Love and Thunder, Extraction 2, and Furiosa, a prequel to 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road. Spiderhead, a science-fiction thriller based on a short tale by George Saunders, will be his next appearance on television. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski, the director of the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, and written by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

Spiderhead is a film about two criminals who choose to have their sentences reduced by participating in medical experiments with mood-altering drugs on a remote island complex. Hemsworth plays Steve Abnesti, the facility's charming but mysterious administrator, while Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett play the inmates Jeff and Lizzy, who become subjects of Abnesti's experiments. The thriller was first previewed in Netflix's 2022 Movie Preview teaser earlier this year, and promotional photos have since teased the intriguing dynamic between Hemsworth's Spiderhead persona and Teller and Smollett's characters.


Doctor Strange 2 Has A Big Villian Problem

Moving forward, the Marvel Cinematic Universe faces a major Thanos dilemma, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness demonstrates that Phases 4 and 5 will need to create an even more deadly antagonist. Thanos' reign as the shared universe's bad guy came to an end in Avengers: Endgame, which marked the end of the Infinity Saga. Following The Mad Titan's demise, the MCU has continued to explore many themes, ranging from The Blip's impact to the growth of the cosmos.

Throughout Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one question has lingered in the minds of fans: where will the MCU go next? After Thanos, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a major step forward for the shared universe, but the film doesn't reveal who Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the other Avengers will face next. Instead, the film serves as a prequel to a larger universe plot, pitting Doctor Strange against Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) for America Chavez's fate. It teases potential perils like Cthon and the multiverse-shattering intrusions. However, the finale of Doctor Strange 2 may leave viewers confused about the MCU's strategy.
