10 Of The Best Quotes In The Original Top Gun

Marvel Cinematic Universe Star Pom Klementieff Talks Disney-Fox Merger, X-Men Dreams
Pom Klementieff may have entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe playing Mantis in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” followed by appearances in the last two “Avengers” movies, but that wasn’t her original superhero plan.

“My dream was to be in X-Men,” she told Variety on Thursday at the Chanel dinner for its new fragrance Gabrielle Chanel Essence at Chateau Marmont. “It was my dream. I remember seeing Storm, Halle Berry. I was like, ‘F—, I want to do that.’ She was like me. She was mixed. I’m Korean, Russian and French. So I wanted to be in X-Men.”

But then she got cast in “Guardians.” “That was better because it’s funnier,” Klementieff said.

She also said it would be “fun” if the Disney-Fox merger lead to a Guardians and X-Men crossover.

“But you know what I really want with the Fox merger, I want to be on ‘The Simpsons,

Paramount Boss Bigs Up Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek Movie

When Wyck Godfrey climbed aboard Paramount Pictures two years ago, he was tasked with reviving some of the studio’s struggling tentpoles – big-name franchises in the vein of Terminator, Star Trek and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The Transformers series has already veered off-course with the really rather brilliant Bumblebee, while the Powers That Be have finally committed to a true Top Gun sequel.

That leaves Star Trek in need of a facelift, given progress has already been made on Tmnt and the sixth Terminator movie. The answer? Godfrey believes that placing someone like Quentin Tarantino in control of the flight deck is enough to pique everyone’s curiosity in a post-Beyond landscape.

Via The New York Times:

But Mr. Godfrey insisted otherwise. Imagine, for instance, Paramount giving “Star Trek” to Quentin Tarantino. “Suddenly people’s eyes light up,” Mr. Godfrey said. “Yours just did.”

Paramount Again Finds 2018 Box Office a ‘Quiet Place’ Despite Hits Like ‘Mission: Impossible’
Even with the massive success of John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place” and the latest installment of Tom Cruise’s “Mission Impossible” series, Paramount had a mostly flat 2018 at the box office.

Though it crawled up a spot from 2017 to take sixth place in market share, pulling in just over $700 million in domestic box office to date, the Viacom-owned studio still lagged well ahead the five other majors and showed little sign it would reclaim the No. 1 spot it held as recently as 2011.

“It’s a year where they have to take stock and look forward to creating more franchises like ‘Mission: Impossible’ as well as working with filmmakers like John Krasinksi to come up with unexpected hits like ‘A Quiet Place’ that could be hugely profitable for the studio,” comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian said.

Top Gambling Related Episodes from Well-Known TV-Series

We all watched TV-series at least once. A lot of people like watching it all the time, but the thing is not all these people can notice gambling related moments in separate episodes.

Today we are going to show you our top of gambling related episodes from well-known TV-series around the world.

Why Use Casino as a Tool to Attract Viewers?

Why do screenwriters come up with the episodes, that involve casinos’ parts? There are several explanations. We can start with the fact, that most people have not visited casinos, whether they are brick-and-mortar or online, for their own reasons. Somebody is afraid of losing all the money, somebody thinks that this is a huge threat to life and online roulette games or online slots make a lot of harm. That’s why, through the screen, they want to look at the inside of the work and playing in the casino.

William Goldman, Legendary Screenwriter, Dead At Age 87

  • CinemaRetro
(Goldman with James Caan on the set of "A Bridge Too Far"- 1976)

By Lee Pfeiffer

There's an old joke among writers about the naive young starlet who thought she could make it in Hollywood by sleeping with screenwriters. Indeed, the people who made it possible for hit films to exist by writing the scenarios the actors carried out on screen were often regarded as being very low on the industry totem pole- and relatively low-paid as well. Not so with novelist and screenwriter William Goldman, who elevated regard for screenwriters while demanding- and receiving- the kind of breakthrough salaries that revolutionized the film industry's respect for writers. Goldman has died from cancer in Manhattan at age 87. He was known to be opinionated, abrasive and demanding, but no one questioned his talents. He won Oscars for "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" and "All the President's Men". Among his other

Tom Cruise Will Fly Aircraft in Top Gun 2, But Not a Fighter Jet

Paramount has confirmed that Tom Cruise will fly in "certain aircrafts," not fighter jets in Top Gun 2. Additionally, the studio also revealed that filming has not been halted in order for the actor to learn how to fly a fighter jet. Cruise is known for doing his own stunts, which has included flying a helicopter in Mission: Impossible - Fallout, but he is stepping up his game for the Top Gun sequel. Let's just hope he doesn't break any bones this time.

Last week, it was reported that Tom Cruise had shut down the production of Top Gun 2 in order to learn how to fly fighter jets. However, the sequel will continue to film through the spring of 2019, according to sources at Paramount. As for the flying of fighter jets, that isn't true.

Top Gun 2 First Look Has Tom Cruise and Jennifer Connelly Recreating an Iconic Scene
Top Gun 2: Maverick set images show Tom Cruise and Jennifer Connelly recreating the famous motorcycle scene from the first movie. It's 32 years later, and Cruise looks pretty much the same as he did in the original film while taking Connelly for a spin on Maverick's Kawasaki Ninja H2, which isn't really known for hosting passengers. Much like Maverick, that bike has the need for speed. However, the two look to be enjoying themselves in the latest set photos from the highly anticipated sequel.

Tom Cruise's Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell is now a captain in Top Gun 2 as seen by the patch on his trademark bomber jacket. In addition to the jacket, Cruise is also wearing the aviator sunglasses, and truly looks remarkably similar to how he did during the filming of the first Top Gun. Jennifer Connelly is on the back of the bike, also wearing a bomber
