Here's the Scoop...

I think at the end of every month I'll post all of the movies that I've seen in those 30 or 31 days, with ratings, and you can take or leave what I thought for future recommendations and such.

I watch new movies, old movies, classic movies, forgotten movies, all kinds of movies.

As a preview, this month I watched 'Black Panther' (2018) and 'Fantastic Voyage' (1966). Ratings and more coming at the end of June.

Be Well,
Steve

Michael B. Jordan trains for a big fight in first trailer for 'Creed II'
Michael B. Jordan sets out to prove himself once again inside the boxing ring in the first trailer for upcoming sequel, Creed II.

The clip, released Wednesday, features Jordan's Adonis Creed, getting ready for a big match alongside returning stars Tessa Thompson as his love interest Bianca and Sylvester Stallone who once again portrays Rocky Balboa.

Rocky is seen trying to convince Adonis not to get into the ring with his next opponent, Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Rocky IV antagonist Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) who killed Adonis' father Apollo Creed.

"I don't got a choice," Adonis says. "That's the same thing your father said and he died right here in my hands," Rocky responds.

Creed II is being directed by Steven Caple Jr. who was handpicked by Stallone and Jordan to helm the sequel after Stallone announced he would no longer be directing the project. The film is set to hit theaters on Nov. 21.

"Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history," reads the synopsis.

??? Guess Who ???

Which 'Bridesmaids' star has exited an Apple comedy series due to her 'Wonder Woman 2' role?

Kristen Wiig has exited an untitled Apple comedy series from Reese Witherspoon as it conflicts with her shooting schedule on superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984.

The planned half-hour comedy series executive produced by Witherspoon under her Hello Sunshine studio, is based on Curtis Sittenfeld's upcoming short story collection, You Think It, I'll Say It. Collen McGuinness (30 Rock) is serving as creator and showrunner.

The show's production schedule overlapped with Wiig's filming schedule on the Wonder Woman sequel where she is portraying the central villain, Cheetah, noted The Hollywood Reporter.

Apple is still eager to develop the series with the production team now regrouping, Variety reported.

The series would have marked a return to television for Wiig who transitioned over to films after appearing on Saturday Night Live from 2005-2012.

Wonder Woman 1984, from returning director Patty Jenkins and featuring Gal Gadot once again in the title role, is set to arrive in theaters on Nov. 1, 2019.
