STARS A-PLENTY AT SCHMOOZE-AND-BOOZE CINEMACON FESTIVAL


    Hollywood unveiled what it hopes will be a summer of blockbusters during a week of stars, schmoozing and boozing at the annual CinemaCon festival at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. 
  Stars were front and centre as the studios promoted their fares, which range from sequels to remakes to --hooray! quite a few original themes.

  One of the surprises was the appearance of Quentin Tarantino with Leonardo DiCaprio to talk about his upcoming controversial movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,  set in the 1960s when the Manson murders rocked Hollywood.

It not only reunites DiCaprio with Tarantino, following their teaming in 2012's Django Unchained, but also includes Brad Pitt, who starred in the director's 2009 Inglourious Basterds.

"It is the most exciting star dynamic since Paul Newman and Robert Redford," Tarantino said of DiCaprio and Pitt. "It's very hush-hush and top secret. But I can tell you that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood takes place in 1969, at the height of the counterculture hippie revolution and the height of new Hollywood. Street by street, block by block, we'll transform Los Angeles into the Hollywood of 1969."

  Other highlights of the week included:

 Cher providing a shot of adrenaline by performing the hit Abba song Fernando from the upcoming Mama Mia! Here We Go Again!. In it she plays Sophie’s (Amanda Seyfried) grandmother, an entertainer who hasn’t left Las Vegas in 25 years, in the musical sequel/prequel that’s due out July 20.


.. Footage from Bohemian Rhapsody, showing Freddie Mercury (Remi Malek who bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Queen singer) joining the band in 1970 with Brian May and Roger Taylor, the movie's joint producers. .
.
 .Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy and “La La Land” writer-director Damien Chazelle took the stage to “Rocket Man”to introduce the initial trailer for “First Man,” in which Gosling transitions from dancing to moonwalking as astronaut Neil Armstrong.

.Tom Cruise and director Chris McQuarrie  walking the audience through the absurdly complicated HALO (High Altitude, Low Open) parachute jump that Cruise completed 106 times, after a year of preparation, for just three usable takes in Mission Impossible: Fallout.  They were later joined onstage by co-stars Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg and Angela Bassett.

 Jamie Lee Curtis, who’s returning to battle Michael Myers 40 years later in “Halloween,” showing off scenes from the horror update. She promised that the sequel “will scare the living shit out of you.”

  And many, many more.....

  2. Surprisingly enough, millions do. If you don't it's probably because you have no interest in pop culture or what's going on around you.
    Or, more likely, you live in a vacuum of self-interest.
