JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 Director Confirmed and Info on The Returning Cast

1 Comment

John Wick: Chapter 3 is inching closer to production! We have some new information on the film thanks to That Hashtag Show. We already know that Keanu Reeves will be back to kick some ass as he fights to survive the army of assassins that will be out to kill him.

We've now learned that John Wick: Chapter 2 director Chad Stahelski will return for this next chapter of the franchise and that he will start shooting it on March 1st in New York City with additional filming possibly taking place in Spain and Russia.

As far as the rest of the cast goes, it's being reported that Common will return as Cassian, Laurence Fishburne will be back as the Bowery King, and Ruby Rose set to return as  Ares. you can bet your ass that Ian McShane will return as well. 

There's also going to be a few new characters introduced including the main antagonist, who is said to be the head of a Japanese crime syndicate. That character will be played by Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine, Avengers 4). Reeves and Sanada previously appeared together in the 2013 film 47 Ronin. The report goes on to say:

We’ve also been told that there is a yet to be cast female role opposite Reeves. The studio is searching for an actress in her late 20s to early 40s and is open to diverse casting. While we’ve heard that Reeves is keen to bring actress Tilda Swinton into the John Wick franchise, this may NOT be that role.

When previously talking about the film, Stahelski discussed what he wanted to play with in this third chapter, saying:

“We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world… I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two, that I’d like to go back to on [chapter three] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York. So rather than massive set pieces, I’d like to show you cooler and more intricate ones… I think it would be a mistake budget wise and creatively to just go big and blow up a freeway. That’s not our gig. That’s a comic book or a Bond gig. We want to show you cool and intricate details. What are those little details in everyday life? Hopefully – we make people look at garbage collectors and cleaner vans and homeless people a little differently now.”

John Wick: Chapter 3 is set to be released in theaters May 17, 2019. As we get closer to production, expect to see more news released on the film in the near future.

DJI might unveil Mavic Air at drone event next Tuesday

1 Comment

DJI has sent out invitations for an “Adventure Unfolds” event next week on January 23rd. There’s not a lot of information included about to expect, just a teaser video with some dramatic music, drone shots, and what might be close-ups of a new drone.

But according to DroneDJ, the Chinese drone company is rumored to be announcing a new “Mavic Air” drone, a possible successor to the company’s existing ultra portable Mavic Pro model that would be smaller, faster, and lighter.

There’s also evidence to support the idea of a smaller Mavic, if you’re interested in reading too much into DJI’s teaser video. The voiceover in the video says “from seemingly insignificant size comes formidable strength and power.”

From a more practical perspective,...

A smaller, folding Mavic is exactly the drone I'd be thrilled by. Cross your fingers!

New Photo From Marvel's ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Features The Two Main Heroes Suited Up!

New Photo From Marvel's ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Features The Two Main Heroes Suited Up!

Here's a new photo from Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp that shows up Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne all suited up and ready for battle. In a previous interview with director Payton Reed, he talked about The Wasp saying:

"This is really her coming out party as a hero. Her power set is fantastic. She and Scott both shrink, but there the flying, and the fighting style of The Wasp is different from Ant-Man's."

He also talks about the importance of Janet Van Dyne's (Michelle Pfeiffer) role in the story, saying:

"She's a very important character. It's fair to say if someone were to have spent thirtysomething years in the Quantum Realm and survived, it would have an effect. What did she eat? All she eats is cereal called Quantum Krispies."

I really like the character Ant-Man and I can't wait to see him back in action! The last time we saw him was in Civil War and this new film will play off of the events that happened with Ant-Man in that story.

The movie also stars Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Michael Pena as Luis, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, T.I. as Dave, Randall Park as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jimmy Woo, Hannah John-Kamen as the Ghost, and Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster.

Here's the new synopsis that was released:

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant-Man and The Wasp, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a super hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.

Ant-Man and The Wasp will be released on July 6th, 2018.

Realmax’s prototype AR goggles fix one of the HoloLens’ biggest issues

1 Comment

Hong Kong-based Realmax is an augmented reality startup, one of many trying to crack the highly sought after smart glasses market that’s taken CES by storm this year. The company’s prototype product, which it’s brought to the show floor in Las Vegas this week, is very much a work-in-progress, but it does have one promising step up over the competition: the product has the widest field of view (FOV) of any AR device I’ve ever personally tried, including the HoloLens.

I didn’t get to spend an extensive amount of time with the Realmax headset. But I did try two different demos, the first of which filled my field of vision with a mermaid and a school of ocean-dwelling fish, while the second floated virtual satellites around a 3D map of the...

Like Tim Cook, I believe that AR is the next real leap in technology. 100-degree FOV is a big deal for that technology.
