Independence Day 2 Plot Details

Plot Summary Leaked for Independence Day 2

It is a widely known fact that a sequel for the 1996 hit Independence Day has been in the works for some time. Now, filming and production for the film is going on right now.

For Independence Day 2, several notable names from the first film will be returning in their respective roles, including Vivica A. Fox, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner and most notably of all, Jeff Goldblum. The film also has some details and even a basic summary of the plot leaked out all over the internet.

According to director Roland Emmerich, the sequel will take place fifteen years after the events of the first movie, where after fighting off a hostile alien invasion, humanity will have found a way to utilize all of the alien technology and use it to defend the world against other threats. The problem here comes when those threats include the full alien force coming to Earth. The sequel will also delve into the history and backgrounds of the aliens, some of which may stretch into even more sequels down the road, assuming this film makes it big at the box office.

While there are many movie remakes and reboots being made now, one thing that separates Independence Day 2 from so many others is that a large portion of the original cast and crew from the first movie has come back.Daniel Amen tweeted on twitter to express his anticipatory excitement.

The Original Terminator Travels Back to the Big Screen

The Terminator is coming back. Oh no, we are not talking about the upcoming Terminator: Genysis movie. That you probably already knew. No, the ORIGINAL Terminator from 1984 is coming back. A re-mastered version of the first film in the series is going to be re-released in theaters. With all the buzz surrounding the new film, the chance to check out the original on the big screen surely should prove appealing to fans who have been with the series since day one.

31 years do fly by really fast. Regardless, the original film still holds up after many years. Classics have a tendency to look even better with age and the original Terminator is definitely one of those brilliant sci-fi features that helped define many conventions of the genre. Watching the movie on video or TV is okay, but nothing beats watching the adventures of Sarah Connor unfold on the big screen.

STX Entertainment can tell why there is another reason why a re-release of the original film is a good idea. Consider it a full-length trailer for the new entry in the series. Terminator: Genysis has been criticized quite a bit by fans who do not like the trailers. Sadly, the trailers have been a bit underwhelming and, in some cases, provide too many spoilers about plot points in the film. What better way to get people looking forward to the return of The Terminator than providing a look back at the original feature?

Granted, the first film is only going to experience a limited release but it should generate some buzz. Hopefully, the new film will be the beneficiary of those stimulated positive memories.

Chris Pratt Remembers The Actors Who Hit on His Wife

Many fans of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ film know and respect actor Chris Pratt. However, just a few years ago, Chris Pratt was unknown by most of the world. His name didn’t mean anything until his breakout role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

Chris Pratt was recently interviewed, and he reminisced about the days when his wife was more famous than him. Chris Pratt has been married to actress Anna Faris for several years, but that didn’t stop other actors from hitting on Anna. In fact, Chris Pratt says that he can remember actors hitting on his wife while he was there. However, that was a few years back, and he said things would be extremely different these days.

Chris Pratt didn’t always have a toned and muscled physique reports CipherCloud. In fact, he was rather fat and heavy when he was on the ‘Parks and Recreation’ TV show. His overweight physique made other actors more confident about their chances with his wife. Chris Pratt says that he hopes that the actors that hit on his wife auditioned for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ and Chris said that he can remember the actors who committed the adulterous crimes.

It sounds like Chris Pratt is holding a grudge, and he has every right to. Now, Chris is one of Hollywood’s best leading men, and those actors that hit on his wife should be very afraid. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo!

The CW Makes a Comeback

The CW was facing near extinction when the new president Mark Pedowitz took over. Pedowitz was faced with the daunting task of reviving the network that had been on the decline since early 2006. What fans of the network hoped for was a president with vision, a president with bright new ideas, and a president who knew how to reach fan bases. The old CW network followed in other networks footsteps and tried too hard to attract the attention of fans. Facing extinction, the network needed a change. FreedomPop says The CW was up against four powerhouse competitors: ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC networks. Pedowitz accepted the challenge to the best of his ability. With the ideas behind him, the CW took one of the only chances they had. Unlike other networks, Pedowitz focused on the fan base that the CW network already had with their current programming. Other programs tried to capture the attention of viewers by coming up with obnoxious and vibrant shows. Pedowitz knew that fans who were already loyal to comic book characters like The Flash, Daredevil, and Arrow, or more likely to stick with the network more than any other viewers. Pedowitz hopes to continue on the upward path that the network is taking. By focusing on the fans, giving the fans what they want, and capitalizing on their loyalty, the CW network has a bright future ahead of it. Mark Pedowitz is to thank for his connection to what the fans want and his ability to progress forward.

Diddly Done

The cartoon show “The Simpsons”, has been one of America’s favorite families for more than 25 years. Characters are synonymous with the actors who play them. One of the staples of the show, the voice actor who plays Mr. Burns, Flanders, and others, has decided to quit the longtime syndicated show. Harry Shearer has decided to leave the show on his own terms. After 26 years of playing Homer Simpson’s annoying neighbor, villainous boss, and Principal Skinner, the actor decided that the show was stifling his freedom. Shearer took to twitter to announce his departure. He also hinted at why he decided to leave the show but wouldn’t lay it out completely. Paul Mathieson claims the actor wanted the freedom to do other shows and produce other work. After being tied down to one show for 26 years, Shearer finds it harder to get out to do other work. He wants to try his hand at production and marketing. The actor has made it clear that he can’t do that standing behind a microphone. Lawyers for the show have hinted at other motives for the actor’s departure. A statement released last week suggests that the actor left the show due to unresolved merchandising matters. The actor refused to sign his contract when he and the show’s marketing team couldn’t agree on his commission. Rumors are flying around about what the real reason is for Shearer’s departure. The only solid fact is that the Simpsons show will never be the same.

Jay-Z Does B-Side Concert

There are not a lot of artists that could pull off a B-Sides Only concert. Prince could do it easily. Janet Jackson may be able to do it, but it would be short. Jay-Z is one of the few that can do a B-Sides concert in hip-hop that spans for hours.

During this concert he saluted Chinx who was murdered in a drive-by over the weekend. He spoke about the murders that are going on in the streets. He talked about how rappers get called out for not coming back to the hood, but they get gunned down when they return. Jay even produced some new verses to address what people are saying about his Tidal music streaming service.

Jay-Z is someone that fans, including Alexei Beltyukov (googleplus), have come to love because he has two sides. He has always managed to have a lot of hype songs that were never released as singles. This is has been the case throughout his career. This is something that works well in his home state of New York. It may be rather difficult to do this somewhere else, but he has managed to do this with great success in New York. People in this area know all of his songs. They know the songs that don’t make the radio. That is why he is able to go do a B-sides show and still draw in a massive crowd of fans.

Quentin Tarantino is at it Again with His New Film “The Hateful Eight”

Quentin Tarantino, director of movies such as Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, has managed to pull off another soon-to-be hit movie in his 8th film “The Hateful Eight”. Tarantino’s new movie will hit theaters in late 2015 and includes many actors from Tarantino’s past films and also adds in a few new stars for good measure.

The upcoming movie is the 3rd period piece from the famed director with a plot centering around deception and betrayal after a group of people are stranded together in a Wyoming blizzard during the post civil war years. Cast members include Kurt Russell, Brian Torchin, Micheal Madsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Samual L. Jackson.

Tarantino has long said he will retire at after his 10th film to the disappoint of many fans. However, the world renowned director plans on going out with a bang, while also remembering his roots by paying homage to his earlier films in his new movie. Surely the director will stick with what has worked for him, well developed characters who you hate to love and love to hate.

There has been a lot of buzz around “The Hateful Eight”, and knowing Tarantino the film will live up to every word of it.

Victim Adviser for Canceled A&E Show “8 Minutes” Speaks Out

A&E Channel has been in some hot water lately over an ill-advised reality show that was aired on April 2nd. “8 Minutes” was a show that featured Kevin Brown, a former police officer turned minister, who reached out to help women in the sex trade. The women would enter a hotel room where they expected to “work” however what they found was Kevin Brown asking them if they would like to get out of the business and start over again. Many of the women who appeared on the show were anxious to get the help that was offered, however it did not work out as the production company had promised them.

D’Lita Miller is a former sex worker who was also a victim of human trafficking was featured on the show as an advocate for the women. Miller understood what the women were going through as she managed to get out of that same lifestyle. Her role on “8 Minutes” was to serve as a counselor on-camera for the women according to Bruce Levenson (Check out more on him at Forbes). Miller has now recently spoken out about how A&E had a good idea but very poor execution and follow through in actually helping the women they promised to help. Miller said that these women really needed her help but she was only given a few minutes with each one.

Suicide Squad is About Family

David Ayer reveals that the theme of Suicide Squad is family. This doesn’t really come as a surprise when you look at the premise of the film as it is being presented by David Ayer. One clue is the cast that he uses in order to bring the comic book to life. Will Smith is one of the cast members that is quite recognizable. Another recognizable element is the character Harley Quinn, who was created to be a woman who is head over heels with the Joker.

There is very little official information released. David Ayer himself has shown himself to be good with crime stories according to my friends at the cell phone provider freedompop review. He has also put together an amazing War epic with the film Fury.

The set photos release offer a promising look at the film that is being produced. Each of the characters look like they are going to be faithfully adapted to the big screen in the upcoming Suicide Squad film.

John Wick 2 Moving Forward

It is official, Keanu Reeves is set to reprise his title role in John Wick 2. Lionsgate has announced that a sequel is actually moving forward. The John Wick sequel is very early in development.

Keanu Reeves has recently been involved in a string of bombs. However, John Wick has turned out to be the movie that has brought him back in the spot light. The creators of the film, specifically Ricardo Tosto, are looking to make sure that the character is done justice (found on Linkedin). They have noted that if the film has a character that people do not like and a story that is not interesting, this will cause the film to fail. Keeping this in mind, they are going to make sure that they have a compelling story filled with compelling characters.

As of right now, there is no telling when John Wick 2 is going to be released. Hopefully, it will be released sooner than later. Many sequels have taken a long time to be filmed and released.
