The decade old veil is slowly being lifted on the long anticipated ‘Masters of the Universe’ movie. The film will be directed by Aaron and Adam Nee [Band of Robbers] from a screenplay penned by ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Men in Black: International’ scribes Matt Holloway and Art Marcum. Production has already found its He-Man in actor Noah Centineo. ‘The Perfect Date’ star had this to say about the upcoming block buster:
“It’s a really big responsibility. This is like first one in, last one out every single day, which I’ve done before but I’ve never done it on a studio level. Which studio level is the same as indie, but like they got playback. So it not like that much (laughs). But it’s cool, man. It’s a big opportunity, and I feel more than ready to tackle it.”
Many fans are curious about the tone ‘MOTU’ will carry. The original screen play was written by David S. Goyer. And according to creature designer Carlos Huante, the film was going to be ‘Lord of the Rings’ epic:
“I’m not going to talk too much about it, I know they’re making it still. But I’ll tell you it was… just the story of Greyskull and that sort of thing and there was some really cool stuff in there. I don’t think they’re gonna make that version. I know they’re not going to. It was like a Lord of The Rings film, it was huge! And there was all kinds of stuff in there, you could have divided up that script into three movies and it would have worked. That’s how big it was.”
“It was a more fantastic version of Lord of The Rings, is what I’ll say. It’s a more colorful and fantastical version of Lord of The Rings, but it felt as real as Lord of The Rings. It was very real but very far-out. It was a final return to science fiction fantasy where we’ve only had one: Star Wars.”
Centineo was questioned about his thoughts on the new direction and tone for the film, here’s what he had to say:
“It’s a new universe, and it’s a new studio and their take on a universe. The Nee brothers, Adam and Aaron Nee, they’re directing it, and they’re the filmmakers in charge of the story, and they are doing one hell of a job developing the world and all these things, so. I can’t tell you what tone they’re going for, but they’re genius, so.”
Lastly, Noah was asked if he had been practicing the famous He-Man line, ‘I HAVE THE POWER!’ To which Noah responded:
“Oh, I’ve been screaming it until my voice is probably fried, man”
‘Masters of the Universe’ is set to hit theaters, March 5, 2021
Tenet: What Is It And When Is It Out?
What is TENET?
‘Tenet’ is the new film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar) starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Kenneth Branagh. In terms of plot, very little is known about ‘Tenet’ but the plot synopsis reads as follows: “Armed with only one word — Tenet — and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.” Given that it’s Christopher Nolan, we know to expect something strange to do with time or non-linear storytelling but we just don’t quite know what…yet. Boasting a budget rumored to be over $200 million, ‘Tenet’ was filmed in seven countries around the world and includes some extraordinary action set pieces, including crashing a real 747 plane into a building (with no CGI)! It certainly promises to be a thrill ride that you don’t want to miss in cinemas.
When is Tenet out?
‘Tenet’ is scheduled to come out on July 17 but given COVID-19, many fans have been wondering if it will sadly get delayed. According to the film’s social accounts, it is still scheduled for July 17 but what’s interesting is that on the new trailer that dropped on May 22, rather than putting the film’s release date at the end, the trailer ended with the words “Coming to Theaters” which implies that the July 17 date isn’t firmly set in stone. It seems that Warner Bros. are aiming for July 17 but if cinemas aren’t open yet in big cities such as Los Angeles or New York, they may have to delay it to later on in the summer. But the film will definitely be released in cinemas as that’s something Christopher Nolan is very keen on. It certainly won’t be released on streaming and you will have to go to a cinema if you want to see it, it just depends on if that’s in the middle of July or later on in the summer once cinemas reopen.
Why is this film so important?
TENET is such an important film as it will be one of the first films to be released theatrically for months. The only film scheduled for release before Tenet is ‘Unhinged’ starring Russell Crowe, due to be released on July 1, but that seems a bit optimistic. Other than ‘Unhinged,’ ‘Tenet’ will be the first film shown in cinemas once they re-open and if ‘Tenet’ is a success and people return to cinemas, other summer blockbusters such as ‘Mulan’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984‘ can be released.
Will you be going to see Tenet in cinemas on July 17?
