News from around the web

Black Adam is the next superhero to get the movie treatment in the DC Extended Universe and Warner Bros. showed the forst footage from the 2022 movie at #DCFanDome this weekend.

The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as the title character Black Adam who is the antihero from the Shazam! movie, which is also getting a sequel in 2022.

A little known fact is that Dwayne Johnson was an executive producer on the first Shazam! movie.

Alongside Johnson the film stars Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Shahi and Aldis Hodge among many others.

There is no UK release date yet but the movie hits US cinemas on 29th June 2022 so expect a similar release time line.

Star Wars fans around the world have their opinion of what is the best lighsaber battle in the Star Wars movie franchise, so on this Star Wars day at we though we would give our opinion of what we think is the best battle seen on screen in the ever growing list of movies.

5. Rey Vs. Kylo Ren (with help from Finn) from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

There had been a Star Wars drought for a number of years (10 years) and with the buyout of Lucasfilms still fresh in everyones minds as well as the (at the time) badly received prequel trilogy the fan base wanted a good Star Wars movie.

JJ Abrahams was put in charge of directing the film, a life long fan of the series, and he delivered in spades, bringing arguably the best Star Wars film to date.

We instantly took to the new characters of the Rebel Alliances Rey and the First Orders Kylo Ren, and with Rey's force powers hinted at throughout, the dual between the two was inevitable, and at the end of the film Abrahams delivered, set within a forest of the Star Killer Base while the planet explodes around them.

4. Yoda Vs. Count Dooku from Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones

We knew Yoda was a Jedi Master and that he had fought in the Clone Wars that started at the end of the second part of prequel trilogy, and George Lucas knew he had to deliver.

As Yoda walks into the hanger where Count Dooku was trying to board his ship you simply knew what was about to happen, and as he pulls across his robes to reveal a small lightsaber this was the moment, he force pulls his weapon to his hand and turns it on.

The battle doesn't last long, but seeing the small green Jedi Master who usually finds it hard to walk bouncing around the walls during the fight is a joy.

3. Obi Wan Kenobi Vs. Darth Vader from Star Wars

The original movie introduces us to the legendary weapon, something not really seen on the big screen before but throught the stories Ben Kenobi tells Luke during the movie we know that the weapon is elegant and the Jedi are lethal with it.

We also believe at this time that Darth Vader is the arch enemy of Ben Kenobi, and by the end of the movie there has to be a metting of the two, and while trying to escape the Death Star the two come face to face.

Despite the technological abilities in special effects at the time this thrilled fans of a generation and when the inevitable happens at the end we are shocked at the loss of our new hero.

2. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader on Cloud City from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

This battle comes as no surprise, we have seen Luke go through the training, and go off to rescue his friends, and we get the foreshadowing fof things to come on Dagobah.

When Luke goes into the carbon freeze chamber and the two enemies ignight their sabers in low light we get the almighty battle between the two enemies.

The style and technology used in this film is so much greater than that of the original Star Wars that it feels fresh and thrilling, and at the end of the battle we get one of cinemas greatest reveals, so good to this day it is celebrated as THE movie twist of all times.

1. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs. Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

The movie gets a lot of criticism, but over the last 20 years time has been kind and in the grander scheme of the saga the fan base is looking at this film more favourably, and it has the best lighsaber battle of all time.

It had been 16 years since we'd had any proper Star Wars to enjoy and despite the film not getting the critical reaction Lucas wanted the Dual Of Fates was spectacular.

The highlight is at the start of the battle as Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan face the Sith Lord Darth Maul, as the John Williams music 'Duel Of Fates' starts to get more intense Maul ignites a single blade on his lightsaber, then the money shot happens and another blade appears from the other side, every Star Wars Fan looked on in amazement as the incredible battle unfolds between the 3 warriors.

The only real shame is that, inevitably, Darth Maul dies at the end of the movie, although in quiet spectacular style, but with little screen time fans wanted more, although as seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story they have brought him back and who knows if he'll appear in another movie or not?

Due to restriction enforcement in England set by the Government due to large increases in COVID-19 cases cinemas in the UK will be closing their doors for the second time in 2020 from November 5th.

The restrictions, at the moment, are to be set in place until 2nd December, but there is every possibility that when it comes to public places like shops, bars and yes cinemas, it will take a bit longer to open up.

This means that there will likely be no box office to report in the coming weeks, and the reopening which could take a couple of weeks, will be slow with very few blockbuster film released.

Which films is this going to effect? It has been mainly small indie film which have enjoyed the exposure over the last couple of months, and in the coming week there were no sizeable film scheduled.

Ryan Reynolds next movie Free Guy is coming on 11th December, things may have re-opened by a week by then but this could be sent to 2021, also there is every possibility that it could see a digital release

On the 18th of December there is Death On The Nile from Kenneth Branagh, which may see a schedule change and just as easily it could go direct to streaming.

Coming 2 America has been sold to Amazon Prime and will make its debut on that platform around the same time frame.

Wonder Woman 1984 is the next big blockbuster due for release and there is every possibility that this will be pushed to spring 2021 , altohugh if this happens then there will be another round of schedule changes as we have Raya And The Last Dragon, Morbius and the much delayed No Time To Die all set around to debut around Spring.

Its yet another blow for the cinema industry and with many major companies already struggling how many closures can cinemas handle before going down.

Streaming is not the way most people want to see big blockbusters, but we also want to feel safe when we go out to enjoy a new movie, time will tell but lets hope this closure controls the virus and cinemas make the necessary safety measures so we can enjoy what could be a blockbuster packed 2021.

Warner Bros. release a new trailer for their tentpole film Tenet which is directed by Christopher Nolan, the film is currently set for a July 17th release.

The movie looks like a fantastic sci-fi movie in the typical Christopher Nolan vein of through provoking and head scratching excellence, the movie stars a whole host of big names like John David Washingtonm, Robert Pattinson, Kenneth Branagh and of course Michael Caine.

With cinemas currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic there is no decision yet on when they will reopen, so although there is no change of release Warner Bros. may yet move it to later in the year.

This will be a shame as the cinema chains are in some ways waiting for a big blockbuster before reopeneing, although at the moment local authorities are looking at how people can social distance inside a movie theatre before allowing them to open their box office again.

If the movie does get released it will kick off the movie season with Wonder Woman 1984, Mulan, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run and Bill And Ted Face The Music following close on its heels .

There is still doubt if the public will 'risk' going to the cinema when things first start opening up again but Tenet is currently set to be the first test things out.

Still enjoy the trailer as its the first sight of a new film we've had in a while.

This weekends box office is going to be an interesting watch. The global coronavirus will do a couple of things to cinemas attendance, it is keeping people at home as they self isolate and in many countries including the UK and US cinema owners have shut their doors to help prevent the spread of the virus.

At the UK box office this weekend, Friday, 20th March 2020, there are 2 new releases, originally there were more, including A Quiet Place Part II which would have made the box office look different, but many film have been put back to later this year or next year.

Can either of these two movie knock Onward from the top of the UK box office chart?
