Blind Item #10

One of the lead actors of this new movie which is a sequel to a movie that didn't do that well and the sequel is going to do worse didn't even bother to show up for a Q&A about the movie. Why? He wants as far away from the bomb as he can. He let the other lead, a foreign born A- list mostly movie actor handle the duties solo.

The last jedi cast? Worst movie I have ever seen. Sadly, it is not that one, i suspect.

Sal Salington said...

Yeah, it's Eastwood letting Boyega take the heat for Pacific Rim 2. But then, Boyega does have a producer credit, so seems fair to me.

Tierney said...

Eastwood was being his inherited-squinty self on GMA this morning, talking about Pac Rim. So, not him/it.

Brayson87 said...

Sounds like Pacific Rim, but damn I loved the first one. Stringer Bell in a giant f*cking robot!

LooLooEasy said...

I wonder if this is Soldada (sequel to Sicario) that stars Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin.

Brayson87 said...

Oh yeah LooLoo, I like your guess, Sicario was nothing compared to Narcos.

Sorry, Scott Eastwood, but if I was at that event I’d much rather see John Boyega anyway πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

Tomb Raider and Wrinkle in Time aren't sequels.

This is Pacific Rim: Uprising.

Rich of Scott Eastwood, not like the movie needs him.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

Goggins. He seems pretty cool though. Major league 3 didn’t finish him off.

Brayson87 said...

Goggins is cool, he was great on Justified and The Shield and The Hateful Eight. Plus he has a good appreciation for the importance of interior lighting.

Lurky McLurkster said...

Goggins is awesome. Don't forget his reoccurring character on SOA. The scenes with him and Kim Coates were the best part of the show.

Dusty Fairy said...

I love him. He was amazing on The Shield, Justified, and SOA.

Dusty Fairy said...

Agreed!

Cindy said...

It's Scott Eastwood. I was at the screening and Q&A. John Boyega is funny and charming guy. Too bad the movie is awful.

Shawn McGuire said...

Pac Rim 1 was amazing. I doubt the director of some Smallville episodes can live up to Guilllermos creation.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

I love how Del Toro lights and photographs his movies but PR1 put me right to sleep.

The uprising of a rim didn’t pique my interest to see this film

Pacific Rim didn't do that well nationally ($119M, considered a bomb I guess, $150M budget), but killed internationally ($411M), which warranted a sequel. Big spectacle monster movies almost always do well overseas, esp. Asian countries. It will prob not do well again domestically, and once again have great numbers internationally. Wouldn't even doubt that there will be a 3rd movie at some point.

First one wasn't horrible, certainly better than any Michael Bay Transformer movie, or anything he puts his name on really. I was entertained; with these movies you pay for the spectacle, just don't insult my intelligence. Didn't feel like this movie did. But, as always, insulting intelligence is subjective I guess lol.

Walt Goggins recently co-stared on “Vice Principals” on HBO, with Danny McBride. Season 1, episodes 2 & 7 are my personal favorites.

dummypants said...

I just want to say I love John Boyega and I hope he keeps his nose clean and far away from these blinds.

Sign Name Below said...

@brayson +100 !!!

Roger Moore said...

Just to be diff, Johnny Depp and "Sherlock Gnomes." I like the "Pacific Rim" line of pursuit, too.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I LOVEd first one too! I’m not sure how I feel about the second one, it makes me think of child soldiers. Pity because I LOVE MΓ‰CHA! My brother and cousin are going to Japan in the summer to see Gundam!!!!!!

They should’ve stuck with age-appropriate (conscription/military age) characters like Idris Elba and Hunnam and the Rinko/Mako.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

+1 IT WAS AMAZIIIIIIIING

Scandi Sanskrit said...

πŸ¦– KAIJU BIG BAIJUUUII πŸ¦•

Ides of March said...

+1 Roger Moore. Depp letting McAvoy do all the publicity.

The Kenzie Face said...

I love him on Vice Principals. So, so perfect. His Instagram is also endlessly entertaining.

Orville said...

Definitely Pacific Rim the movie might do poorly in America BUT studios care MORE about the foreign box office.

Major G said...

Totally Pacific Rim. Good riddance, Sam Westfield. We know & like John Boyega more anyway. Wait, that was his name, right?
