Starring Kevin Hart, John Travolta, and Game of ThronesNatalie Emmanuel, Die Hart follows Hart as a fictional version of himself; a man who must learn what it takes to be an action hero.

Hart enrolls in an action star school owned by Ron Wilcox (Travolta) in a training program that sees Emmanuel’s character show him the ropes.

Dreaming and actually preparing to be what you dream of are two very different things as Hart finds out. Wilcox isn’t ready to go easy on him so he has no choice but to dig deep to bring out the action star within.

From the trailer, we are in for a lot of comic moments (something that the lead star has never failed to bring to the table) but it is hoped that it would enough to sustain the interest of viewers.

Die Hart is set to be released on July 20, 2020. Check out the trailer below:

He will star alongside Jodie Turner-Smith and Felicity Jones in the film directed by the Guard Brothers.

According to Variety, Borderland follows an Irish paramilitary soldier who witnesses the shooting of his wife by a SAS sergeant and makes it his personal mission to exact revenge

The script is written by Ronan Bennett and it is inspired by the novel The Road to Balcombe Street.

Filming will begin in the UK in early 2021, and the directors had this to say about the project:

’Borderland’ is a vengeance-fueled chase movie, fusing some pulse ticking action with a powerful message for our times. We’re thrilled that the script, driven as much by character as it is by plot, has attracted such a first-rate cast.”

Black Widow director Cate Shortland confirmed what has been a major fan theory for some time, revealing that the movie sets up Florence Pugh’s character Yelena Belova as a new superhero.

Shortland said:

[Kevin Feige] realized that the audience would expect an origin story so, of course, we went in the opposite direction. And we didn’t know how great Florence Pugh would be. We knew she would be great, but we didn’t know how great. Scarlett is so gracious, like, ‘Oh, I’ handing her the baton.’ So it’s going to propel another female storyline.”

The filmmaker also added that Black Widow will give MCU fans the closure that Avengers: Endgame didn’t over the death of Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff.

In ‘Endgame,’ the fans were upset that Natasha did not have a funeral. Whereas Scarlett, when I spoke to her about it, said Natasha wouldn’t have wanted a funeral. She’s too private, and anyway, people don’t really know who she is. So what we did in this film was allow the ending to be the grief the individuals felt, rather than a big public outpouring. I think that’s a fitting ending for her.”


Initially set for release on May 1, 2020, Black Widow is now slated for arrival on November 6, 2020.
