Its been well over a decade since the release of 2000’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.’ And despite earning over $200 million worldwide on a $17 million dollar budget, fans weren’t clamoring for a sequel.
In recent years, rumblings of a possible sequel in the works caught on with fans of the original. I’m sure in part this was attributed to the predominance of social media in mainstream society. Nevertheless, fans have been heard and we now have our first look at the Netflix and select theaters movie ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny’
‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny‘ Hits Netflix and select theaters February 26, 2016. Starring: Donnie Yen, Michelle Yeoh, Harry Shum Jr. and Jason Scott Lee.

Plot Details Revealed For A New “Power Rangers” Reboot
Paramount has revealed that a “Power Rangers” reboot is in the works. ‘The End of the F—ing World’ creator Jonathan Entwistle is in talks to direct. The movie will follow an all new story, with no connection to the 2017 film. The screenplay is being penned by Patrick Burleigh, [‘Peter Rabbit,’ and ‘The Runnaway.’]
The upcoming reboot will reportedly see the new Power Rangers time travel to the 90’s and have to find their way back to the current timeline. The plot also details the possibility of the original rangers returning.
While information is scarce, at least one original ranger has taken to social media too throw his hat in the ring for the original team to return.
Jason David Frank has had multiple roles throughout the history of the Power Rangers. Most notably, (Tommy Oliver) the green ranger and white ranger. Frank, hoping to fuel his fan base, has asked that old and new fans of the rangers, reach out to Paramount and lobby for the return of the original cast to the upcoming feature film.

Let’s just put Lord Drakkon in the film that will sum it up haha !! #theycouldvebeengods #drakkon because any ranger can be crossed back through the boom comic universe. I don’t get why they don’t use an easy formula… A proven one @kyledhiggins comment for the Lord bellow 🔽
The 2017 movie, starring Bryan Cranston, Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Bill Hader and Naomi Scott was liked by Power Rangers fans, but also met with harsh criticism which led the film to a dismal $142 mil box-office take, on a $105 mil budget.
Would you be excited to see the 90’s “OG” Power Rangers return to theaters? Drop a comment below!
Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ To Reveal The One True Mandarin
‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ was announced at SDCC as part of Marvel’s upcoming phase 4 slate. It is set to be the third film in Phase 4 and will be released February 12, 2021. ‘Ten Rings’ will feature Shang-Chi ( Simu Liu ), a Kung-Fu Master, who will face off against, The Mandarin. You heard that right, THE MANDARIN. But not that Mandarin, The real Mandarin.
‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will be the first Asian led Marvel film. It will follow the legendary martial artist on his quest to stop The Mandarin (Tony Leung) on his quest for world domination. The Mandarin is villain that many MCU fans know little about, especially after ‘Iron Man 3’ pulled the old bait and switch by having the Mandarin revealed to be an actor played by Ben Kingsley named Trevor Slattery, whose sole purpose was to divert Stark’s attention from the true villain of the film, Aldrich Killian.
Shang-Chi (Chinese: 尚氣; pinyin: shàng qì; literally: ‘rising of the spirit’) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin, first appearing in Special Marvel Edition #15 (cover-dated December 1973) in the Bronze Age of Comic Books. Often referred to as the “Master of Kung Fu”, Shang-Chi is proficient in numerous unarmed and weaponry-based wushu styles, including the use of the gùn, nunchaku, and jian. In later years, he gains the power to create countless duplicates of himself, and joins the Avengers. -Wikipedia
