Director Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Sicario’ Opening In Theaters This September 18th

Stepping away from the overdone comic-book genre that seems to be dominating big screens these days, a new film titled Sicario from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve will be opening in theaters this fall. The script comes from actor-turned-screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (White Rush, Sons of Anarchy) and centers upon an FBI agent who is recruited by a government task force to aid in the ongoing drug war happening at the US/Mexican border. Starring in the leading roles are actors Emily Blunt (The Adjustment Bureau, Edge of Tomorrow), Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men, Men In Black 3), and Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Traffic), with Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, The Wolf of Wall Street), Jeffery Donovan (Burn Notice, Changeling) and Victor Garber (Titanic, Argo) also appearing in the supporting cast. The film received very positive reviews and an Official Selection nod at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will be open in theaters nationwide this September 18th, a pretty solid contender for Scott Cooper’s Black Mass with Johnny Depp, which opens the same weekend, so mark your calendars! The trailer is available here on MADE.

John Singleton To Re-Write, Produce, And Direct Tupac Shakur Biopic

tupac

John Singleton came right into the spotlight of Hollywood in 1991 when Boyz N The Hood was released to audiences already enveloped in the turbulent grunge/rave scene of the early ’90s. The filmmaker attended USC immediately after graduating from high school in 1986. During his time at school he wrote the script for Boyz N The Hood which was then picked up by Columbia Pictures, who then financed the film and earned Singleton two Oscar nominations, one for Best Director and the other for Best Screenplay (written directly for the screen). Singleton has done an impressive body of work since then, going on to write/direct Poetic Justice (1993) and Shaft (2000), as well as direct films such as 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003) and Four Brothers (2005). Now Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Singleton has signed on to re-write the screenplay and also produce and direct a film about the late rapper Tupac Shakur. A biopic about the artist was in the works a few years ago with Antoine Fuqua heading the project, but the director fell away from the movie, which will now be co-produced/financed by Morgan Creek Films and Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films. Tupac was a highly influential artist in the early 1990s, with his work consisting of themes involving social class systems and the economic hardships and conditions of inner city living to name a few. He also made several appearances as an actor, including a supporting role in John Singleton’s Poetic Justice, making the director’s involvement with this biopic all the more personal. Tupac was wounded in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996, and died at UMC Southern Nevada six days later at the age of 25. There is no word yet as to who will be taking on the role of Tupac.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather v. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez – Sept. 14th.

Mayweather v. Alvarez
Two men enter, one man leaves….still undefeated that is. On September 14th, Floyd “Money” Mayweather (44-0-26KO) will fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1-30KO) at the MGM Grand in what is anticipated to be the highest selling fight in history since Money and the Golden Boy met in 2007. This fight is projected to sell more than $18M in tickets, not counting PPV orders.

This will be the second fight of Mayweather’s megadeal with Showtime following his victory over Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero. Money’s deal with Showtime spans 30 months and includes 6 fights and is estimated to be worth $200M.

I was surprised to hear, through twitter, that Mayweather had selected to fight Alvarez. I would’ve liked to see Canelo get one or two more fights under his belt as his skills are stil developing. Canelo’s defensive skills were evident as he slid by Austin Trout’s punches, in his last match, though he is not known for being a defensive fighter.

Though Alvarez has fought his share of professional fights, he has not yet faced a fighter with the defensive expertise as Mayweather.  I ‘m excited to see Alvarez’s gameplan, as we all know, there is a list of 44 other gameplans Mayweather has picked apart, and sent back to the gym.

Hard work, dedication.
