Netflix is releasing a live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s renowned manga. Tomorrow Studios, the studio behind Netflix’s now-cancelled Cowboy Bebop adaption, is producing the series.
Where It Started
One Piece is arguably one of the most popular and well-known manga franchises of all time. Since its first appearance in an issue of Weekly Shonen Jump on July 22, 1997, the manga has been published in 969 chapters and 95 volumes, with more on the way.
How It’s Coming
Filming had been planned for a long time, and if not for the global pandemic, production would have begun in the summer of 2020. We’ve experienced many delays and fake filming start dates since then. The majority of the filming is taking place at Cape Town Film Studios, which has plenty of room for the pirate ships. According to a source close to the production, three pirate ships have been built so far for the program.
Even with multiple tweets and announcements that came out, producers and those on the job have yet to give out a release date. One thing is for sure; we are about to get treated to an adaptation that’s long overdue!
Latest Indiana Jones Movie Drops Its First Trailer
Finally, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’s debut trailer has been made public. Harrison Ford dons his iconic whip and archeological gear for the final time in the fifth installment of the acclaimed film series.
A Shocking Surprise
However, they went a step further and unveiled the entirety of the Indiana Jones 5 trailer. And, to be honest, it appears completely bizarre. In the fifth installment, Indy will battle some Nazis, and it appears that he will travel back to the 1960s to do so. It seems amazing how drastically Disney was able to de-age the 80-year-old actor to resemble him a few decades ago.
He also rides a horse through a big US parade, and Mads Mikkelsen portrays a rather wicked character. The movie’s female lead is played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Harrison Ford had nothing but admiration for the Fleabag performer. The first video from the movie was shown at the D23 expo earlier this year, and the principal actor in the movie undoubtedly experienced some emotion at that time.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Releases Its First Trailer
The last time we saw Star-Lord and his rag tag bunch of extraterrestrial friends in a stand-alone movie was five years ago. The public has now been given a trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
A Bit of a Surprise
Although they’ve been in multiple Avengers movies, Chris Pratt’s character hasn’t had a solo adventure in a very long time. However, they’re back and they look better than ever. The third installment of the fantastic Marvel franchise has not yet given a concrete on what’s to come, but hopefully the trailer would give us an idea on what’s going on.
Keeping the Standard
We appear to be in for a picture that jumps between planets and is full of action, drama, and astonishing emotion. In one scene, Rocket is seen as a young racoon, and there may also be the beginnings of a possible love affair between Rocket and an otter. As the Guardians move through space, the visuals are stunning, nothing less of what we’ve been expecting from the franchise.

The Internet Goes Wild After Will Smith’s Latest Movie Gets Boycotted by Critics
Due to the ongoing repercussions from Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock at the Academy Awards earlier in the year, fans have had a mixed reaction to the historical action movie Emancipation, which was directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars Smith.
The Plot of the Movie
Gordon, also known as “Whipped Peter,” was a Black American slave who managed to escape the Louisiana plantation where he was kept captive in the book Emancipation. In order to avoid hunters and bloodhounds, he traveled more than 60 kilometers in ten days before arriving at a post of Union soldiers in the early 1863.
Even though Smith has said he understands if people don’t want to watch Emancipation, a sizable portion of folks who would not view this movie because of its relationship with Smith are puzzling fans of the actor.
Emancipation debuts in American theaters on December 2 and becomes available on Apple TV on December 9. Hopefully people would still support the film, and see the film for what it can truly be.
