Good news for anyone experiencing time linearly: Tenet is streaming May 1 on HBO via HBO Max!” HBO Max tweeted on its official page on Saturday.

Tenet got a theatrical release months before the studio decided its 2021 titles would debut on the streaming service HBO Max, owned by their parent company Warner Media, at the same time as the movies released in cinema halls.

The digital release of Tenet is an interesting turn of events following Nolan’s sharp criticism of Warner Media when the company announced its decision to premiere its productions for the year 2021 in cinemas and on HBO Max.

In a statement after the announcement in December, Nolan said: “Some of our industry’s biggest filmmakers and most important movie stars went to bed the night before thinking they were working for the greatest movie studio and woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service.”

Tenet had so far grossed nearly US $58 million in North America and over US $363 million worldwide.

Again Coronavirus Delays The Production Of The Movie “The Batman”

The production of the movie “The Batman” has been delayed as a member of the stunt team tested positive to coronavirus.

This will be the third time the Matt Reeves-directed movie will be hit by the virus, as the delays are now hills to cross for the production team, which has a strict testing regime in place.

A source told The Sun newspaper that shooting a blockbuster of this scale is difficult enough without the threat of Covid looming large.

The source continued: “While this proves Warner Bros’ testing regime is working, having so many people away from set for ten days is a headache the studio could do without, especially when they are relying on the stunt team to deliver the film’s most spectacular scenes.”

The movie is still on track to wrap next month and when it does, I think everyone will be breathing a sigh of relief,” the source added.

In September, it was revealed that Robert, 34 years, who plays the iconic superhero in the movie, tested positive to the coronavirus, and was forced to self-isolate for two weeks before filming was allowed to resume.

A spokesperson for the Warner Bros said at the time: “A member of ‘The Batman’ production has tested positive for Covid-19, and is isolating in accordance with established protocols. Filming is temporarily paused.”

Production work was also paused back in March, when the UK entered its first national lockdown.

The film which also features stars like Zoe Kravitz and Colin Farrell – has already been forced to delay its release date amid the pandemic.

The delay meant that the movie’s release date is expected to be pushed as the film is now set to debut in March 2022.

I really do believe that these giant Black icons are necessary, not only for Black kids, but for white kids to start to absorb — our people as being big and heroic.”

When you start to see the direct impact that a Black superhero had on my nephew, that’s branded on my brain,” he added.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has Mackie playing Sam Wilson, who inherited Steve Rogers’ shield at the end of Avengers Endgame and Stan playing Bucky Barnes, the hero-turned-villain-turned-hero character who shared an unshakable bond with Rogers.

My Character In ‘Monster Hunter’ Was Inspired By A Friend In The US Army – Milla Jovovich

From Resident Evil movies to Monster Hunter, Milla Jovovich is again in collaboration with her husband and filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson.

The Monster Hunter movie is based on a world where giant, destructive monsters are prevalent and people called ‘hunters’ make a living by killing them for civilians.

Milla Jovovich’s character Lt. Natalie Artemis is the leader of a group of US Army Rangers who are accidentally transported into the Monster Hunter’s world. Where, they team up with a Hunter (Tony Jaa) and fight off monsters to survive and go back to the real world.

Milla Jovovich said: “Her character Natalie Artemis is a captain in US military and an Army Ranger.

The actor added, “She’s tough, loyal and experienced.”

Milla disclosed that she took the inspiration for Natalie Artemis from her real friend, and she’s one of the few female Army Rangers in the US.

On the difference between her roles as Alice (Resident Evil) and Natalie (Monster Hunter), Milla Jovovich said: “Alice was pretty much an invention of the Umbrella Corporation. She wasn’t somebody who was good at making relationships.

“Artemis is a team member. She’s potentially a mom and wife. She is kind of every woman in a sense, albeit a strong, powerful woman. I think when you see the movie, you’ll just be able to relate to Artemis on a human level as opposed to Alice who was a bit more iconic superhero than like a real down to earth person.

Monster Hunter was released in Germany in last December and will be released in India on February 5.

The movie is directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, and the production companies are Tencent Pictures, Screen Gems, Toho Co., Ltd., Constantin Film, and Impact Pictures.

Paul W. S. Anderson, Martin Moszkowicz, Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer, Dennis Berardi, and Ken Kamins are producers.

Karnan Hits The Cinemas In April, 2021

Karnan, the new blockbuster movie directed by Mari Selvaraj, is set to hit the cinemas in April.

One of the casts, Dhanush, made this disclosure on Sunday on Twitter and also shared a poster of Karnan.

He also thanked the Karnan producer Kalaipuli S Thanu for considering the concerns of theatre owners and exhibitors, who depend on the films and theatres to a making, and said the decision to bring the film to cinemas means a lot to his fans.

Karnan releases on April 2021 in theatres. A much needed encouraging news at the right time. Thank you Thanu sir for thinking of the theatre owners, distributors, exhibitors and everybody who’s livelihood is dependent on films and theatres, even though you had other options. A big thank you on behalf of my fans as this means a lot to them,” Dhanush wrote in a note posted on his Twitter page.

The poster features the actor standing at a hilltop with a sword in his hand. Kalaipuli S Thanu unveiled the film’s teaser. Similar to the poster, the over one-minute-long clip introduces Dhanush, who is seen climbing a hilltop with a sword in his hand as a large crowd looks at him from below.

The black-and-white visuals seem to suggest that Karnan has a period setting. Without revealing much, the teaser offers perfect intrigue about Dhanush’s character and the film’s story. The hauntingly beautiful background score adds a mystery to the visuals.

The movie director, Mari Selvaraj, who became popular for Pariyerum Perumal, revealed last year that Karnan would talk about people from humble background.

He said: “It is a fictional film based on stories I have heard in my life. But unlike Pariyerum Perumal, here my protagonist doesn’t shy away from injustice because his upbringing is different.

“Karnan was supposed to be my first film, but director Ram sir told me that I have to prove myself first to narrate this script to a big star. After Pariyerum Perumal, I got a call from Dhanush sir, and Karnan happened.”

“Bernice lost her mother when she was a child and she was adopted by The Governor. The Governor got the Hero out of the prison, and he’s supposed to go and save the governor’s granddaughter. If his mission is completed, he’s supposed to be free, and he can walk away.

I had a heart attack before we went into the shooting,” said Sono

I was living in Tokyo and Nicolas Cage himself suggested, ‘Why don’t we shoot in Japan instead?’ That gave a lot of essence to the east-meets-west stuff. That became quite different and super-interesting,” Sono explained.

Sono expressed that working with Cage is a joyous thing as he’s the easiest person to work with.

He is literally the easiest person to work with in the world, in my opinion,” said Sono.

He never acts like a star at all. He tried everything he can to make this movie great for Sion. He did everything for Sion. I actually feel fantastic. Great. Just so you know, I text with Nicholas on a daily basis and we share this happiness that the movie is showing at Sundance,” Sono expressed.
