Keep your local cinephile in your prayers. Yesterday’s whirlwind news that Tom Cruise was jumping off a burning helicopter from Paramount to Warner Bros. now seems like a distraction from some questionable logistical decisions the studio has once again made. Mickey 17, Bong Joon-ho’s highly-anticipated sci-fi jaunt starring Robert Pattinson, was slated for a March premiere but has since been scrubbed from the WB release calendar. While Warner Bros. announced the move in a press release, they have yet to justify the decision. Optimistic fans are hopeful that Mickey 17’s delay is a sign that the film is a worthy award season contender and didn’t fall victim to David Zaslav’s tax write-off spree.
On the flip side, the news of a big action movie’s release date being pushed up likely made waves in the most peculiar group chat imaginable (if it even exists). Ahead of his latest Netflix release, Kevin Hart claimed to be a part of a group chat with some of Hollywood’s hardest-working action stars. The roster starts with The Rock and Mark Wahlberg, whose presence in the chat is believable enough considering the two have worked with Hart previously. But things get a little questionable with the inclusion of Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Hart joked to People that it’s a “real secret chat” and that he could “get in trouble from the other action guys” for even disclosing its existence.
