After Incident at the Oscars, Will Smith Gets Banned For 10 Years

Published

on

Despite the fact that Smith’s departure meant he was no longer a voting member of the Academy, he might have been invited to subsequent ceremonies and nominated for consideration in the future. However, due to the recent judgment, the movie star will be unable to do so for the next ten years.

Making Things Controversial

The Academy has been struggling to come up with a reaction to the incident over the last few days, as public and celebrity opinion has swung against Smith, with numerous of his Hollywood peers criticizing his behavior and demanding that he face consequences.

Quite the Scene

One of the possible penalties was Smith’s possible expulsion from the Academy; however, Smith bolted before he was pushed last week, announcing in a statement that he was resigning his membership. Despite this, the Academy’s 9,000 members were stated to be “split down the middle” over how harshly Smith should be penalized for his violent reaction.

Regardless of the apology or not, Will Smith has now been banned by the Academy for the next ten years. While this would seem like an appropriate punishment for the actor, some may say that ten years might not be enough.

Hugh Jackman Responds to Requests for Sequel of The Greatest Showman

Published

By

The 2017 musical movie, based on the book and musical about circus leader Phineas Taylor Barnum and his diverse group of bright and dynamic performers, was a box office triumph, starring Zendaya, Zac Efron, and Michelle Williams. Hugh Jackman has expressed his thoughts on the potential of a sequel to The Greatest Showman.

Open Doors

However, Hugh Jackman, who plays Barnum in the film, has spoken up about whether or not a sequel is possible. Jackman told PEOPLE on Thursday, May 12th, at the 2022 Tony Awards nominations luncheon in New York, that he is “always open” to the idea of a sequel.

More Support

However, just because Jackman is ‘open’ to the concept of a sequel doesn’t mean he believes it will actually happen. While Jackman sounds enthused about a sequel to the 2017 film, Michelle Williams looked much more so.

Despite their promise to work together if a sequel is made, Jackman warned that they may be running out of time to make it. “But it took us eight years to get that first movie made, you know, to create and write music and build it,” he added.

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 to Cast Margot Robbie in Lead Role

Published

By

Margot Robbie is set to star in a new Pirates of the Caribbean film, but Johnny Depp may not return. In four further sequels, he resumed the role, but his involvement in a planned sixth film has been in doubt in recent years and even up to now with recent events.

Success to Come

It won’t be a surprise if Disney would reboot the whole Pirates franchise, even though the fifth film was a huge commercial success, with a gross profit of $800 million worldwide, it’s only gotten a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 30 percent.

Right for the Role

Legendary Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer claimed two Pirates scripts were still in the works, including the one with Robbie, in a recent interview ahead of the release of Top Gun: Maverick.

“Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We’re developing two Pirates scripts – one with her, one without her,” he remarked when asked about the franchise’s future and the possibility of a female lead. “Not at this time,” Bruckheimer stated, “the future is yet to be decided.”
