Moviestart once again publishes a selection of the most interesting news from the world of cinema over the past few days.
The American company Marvel has released the final teaser for the blockbuster “The Eternals” starring Angelina Jolie. The film will open up a new corner of the superhero universe for fans. The film is based on Jack Kirby’s fantastic saga about an immortal alien race of powerful creatures.
According to the plot, the main characters arrived on Earth seven thousand years ago. For centuries, the Eternals have secretly helped the inhabitants of the planet and protected them from monsters. However, the atrocities of the dark lord Thanos force them to come out of the shadows and take part in saving the Earth.
The film was directed by Oscar winner Chloe Zhao. Her film “The Land of Nomads” this year won many awards at world film festivals, and recently the International Film Press Federation recognized the picture as the film of the year. The cast of The Eternals includes Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chan, Keith Harrington, Richard Madden and others.
It is not yet known in what format the new blockbuster will be released: it is likely that, together with theatrical distribution, it may also be released on the Disney + platform. The premiere is scheduled for November 5, 2021.
The first frame of the fantastic drama “Finch” has appeared on the Internet, which will be released on November 5 exclusively for the Apple TV + streaming platform. The main character in the film will be played by two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks. The actor is known for his work in such films as Forest Gump, The Green Mile, The Terminal and Philadelphia. In the debut shot, which was recently published by the Apple Original film company, Tom Hanks, aka Finch, stands next to his robot Jeff and his dog Goodyear.
The film tells the story of a robotics engineer who turned out to be the only person who managed to survive after the solar cataclysm. Most of the world’s population perished, and on the ruins of the metropolis, Finch creates a new world for himself and his four-legged pet. However, the man realizes that he will soon die, so he decides to build Jeff’s robot to look after Goodyear in his place. So, all three go on a final journey, during which an engineer shows Jeff what love, friendship is and what it is like to be a living person.
The film was directed by Miguel Sapochnik, known for staging the film The Rippers and several episodes of Game of Thrones, True Detective and House Doctor. Caleb Landry Jones (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Skeet Ulrich (“It Can’t Be Better”) and Laura Cunningham (“A Case of the Brave”) will also star in the film.
Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe actress Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place, Poirot) will play the first female detective Kate Warne in a new project from Amazon Studios. And her Jungle Cruise co-star Duianne Johnson will produce the upcoming film.
The tape promises to be a dynamic adventure-detective, in which Kate Warne will gain authority and respect in a field where men have ruled for years. Thanks to her brilliant mind and unmatched investigative abilities, the first female detective is in no way inferior to the legendary Sherlock Holmes. She paves the way for future female detectives and changes the way detective work is done forever.
Kate Warne became famous for entering the profession at the age of 23, and after a couple of years she began to run a detective bureau, where only women worked. She was also an undercover detective for a time during the American Civil War and prevented an assassination attempt on Abraham Lincoln shortly before his inauguration.
The script for the project will be handled by Gustin Nash (“Rebellious Youth” and “College Tricks”). The name of the picture, as well as other details of the production, are still unknown.

A documentary by Shout! will tell how the young boy William Henry Pratt of British-Indian descent became one of the most famous actors in the history of horror films. To portray this on screen, director Thomas Hamilton interviewed a dozen filmmakers who were inspired by horror films with Boris Karloff. For example, Guillermo del Toro, Joe Dante, John Landis, Christopher Plummer and other filmmakers in their work often relied on the experience of the legendary artist. And del Toro said that he has not yet made a single film that Boris Karloff has not cast a shadow on.
In addition to the directors and actors, Karloff’s daughter Sarah will also speak in the film, who will share previously unknown facts about her father’s life. The documentary will premiere on 17 September.

One of the best-selling artists in the world, rapper Eminem, will take part in 50 Cent’s production project after a long hiatus. This time he will play a cameo role in the series “Black Mafia Family”. Its hero is Rick Vershy, an American drug dealer and the youngest FBI informant in US history.
The TV show from the Starz channel will tell about the illegal activities of an organization called the Black Mafia Family, which deals with drug trafficking and money laundering. It was founded in Detroit by brothers Demetrius and Terry Flenory in 1989, and by the 2000s the gang had established cocaine sales throughout the United States.
Eminem has previously tried his hand at acting on the big screen. In 2002, he played the main character in the movie 8 Mile, which was largely autobiographical for the musician. Then he received an Oscar for Best Song. Fans hope that the new role will be just as bright and significant in the performer’s career.
