Robert Pattinson Could Star In A Star Wars Movie

Published

on

After being the new Batman, Robert Pattinson could leap to the Star Wars saga and, more specifically, to the Kevin Feige film.

Disney / LucasFilm some time ago assigned a Star Wars movie to Marvel Studios head producer Kevin Feige. For now, there are few details of what they are preparing, but several names have been rumored for the project, such as Brie Larson (Captain Marvel) or Chris Evans Captain America. Now reports indicate that they want Robert Pattinson to lead that story.

Having given up on the big box office hits for nearly a decade after the Twilight saga conclusion, Robert Pattinson has significantly softened his stance. After being praised for his performance in Christoper Nolan’s Tenet, many who criticized him as the new Batman are thinking better of it. Also, exciting offers come to him, and one of them could join him in Star Wars.

It would be an exciting leap in his career

Robert Pattinson is expected to headline at least three solo Batman movies from director Matt Reeves, which will keep him busy for a few years. But the same sources that were right that the Fast and Furious franchise will have scenes in space and that Ben Affleck returns for The Flash all the information is already official, now assure that the former star of Harry Potter and Twilight could end up joining another of Hollywood’s most iconic franchises, Star Wars.

Based on this information, Kevin Feige is interested in Robert Pattinson being the leader of his first Star Wars movie. The Marvel Studios boss wants to focus heavily on the original characters and apparently has a role in mind for the new Batman.

Kevin Feige is stated to be a massive fan of Robert Pattinson as a devoted and dedicated talent and Sees him as the proper candidate to enroll in a Star Wars challenge that also stays shrouded in mystery. It’s unclear what precisely the blockbuster’s movie will be about or what it will involve, but it will undoubtedly seek to emulate the success it brought to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

By

“Nomadland” is the winner of this year’s People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The recession-era road trip drama, starring Frances McDormand, tells the story of a woman travelling the American West alone in her van.

Directed by Chloe Zhao, “Nomadland” is already a favourite with critics, and picked up the Golden Lion for best film at Venice Film Festival earlier this month.

But the TIFF People’s Choice win helps solidify its buzz ahead of awards season.

Several previous People’s Choice winners have gone on to pick up the best-picture Oscar, including “Green Book”, “12 Years a Slave” and “The King’s Speech”.

Last year, “Jojo Rabbit” won the prize before picking up six Academy Awards nominations.

The TIFF People’s Choice honour has usually carried a $15,000 prize, but organizers say no cash prize is attached this year.

“Nomadland” beat out Regina King’s directorial debut “One Night in Miami”, which reimagines a real-life 1964 meeting between Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Sam Cooke, and Jim Brown. Her film was the first runner-up.

Canadian filmmaker Tracey Deer’s coming-of-age drama “Beans,” set around the Oka Crisis, was the second runner-up.

No One Knows Why Romans Had X-Rated Coins

Published

By

As influential as Roman society unquestionably was, they were definitely into some weird shit: Fighting the underclass to the death for fun, cleaning their teeth and clothes with pee, and apparently, money printed with … whatever is going on here:

People have been finding these pornographic coins that date back to first-century Rome all over Europe for centuries, but the thing is, no one can tell what they used for. Believe it or not, the official Roman currency didn’t bear dicks with wings, although it was coincidentally called “asses,” e.g., “This loaf of bread costs three asses,” which must have been very confusing to the local sex workers.

It’s been theorized that these coins, which depict some kind of sexual scenario on one side and a number on the other, were used in brothels, although not to avoid butt bemusement. Bringing currency bearing the emperor’s image into a brothel would have amounted to treason, although calling them “asses” somehow flew fine, and many of the employees were foreign, so people assumed the coins served the dual purpose of a kind of sexy Pictionary: “This act for this much money.” You know, like when your phone dies in a foreign country and reducing you to pointing at pictures in restaurant menus.

However, there are a number of problems with this theory, none the least being what on Earth the dick with wings might represent. (Sex so good you go to the afterlife?) Maybe they were gambling chips. Maybe they were satirical art. No one knows, but what’s important is that we need to start manufacturing and distributing our own version of this to confuse future archaeologists.
