  1. Al Pacino, Dan Stevens to Play Troubled Priests in Exorcism Horror ‘The Ritual’ (EXCLUSIVE)

    https://variety.com/2024/film/global/al-pacino-dan-stevens-the-ritual-horror-david-midell-1235979115/

    Based on a true story, “The Ritual” follows two priests — one questioning his faith (Stevens) and one reckoning with a troubled past (Pacino) — who must put aside their differences to save a possessed young woman through a difficult and dangerous series of exorcisms. The film is an authentic portrayal of Emma Schmidt, an American woman whose demonic possession culminated in harrowing exorcisms. Her case remains the most thoroughly documented exorcism in American history.

    We'll probably flush them down their own toilet bowl and then go and lose to Bournemouth.

    All jokes aside, getting these six points on the board was critical for us. Especially after that little wobble. City and Liverpool under massive pressure now.

    Liverpool are not winning the PL, both the players and fans know this . The Crystal Palace loss at home confirmed this.

    But yes City are definitely under pressure.

    Another bald fraud from the Dutch league? Guess one is not enough! :D

    At least now there will be a competition to see who's the real Bald Dutch Fraud!

    :lol:

  4. Glen Powell to Star in Edgar Wright’s Remake of ‘The Running Man’

    Glen Powell, Hollywood’s favorite rising star, has nabbed his first action vehicle.

    The actor, who cemented his leading-man status with the hit romantic comedy Anyone but You, will star in Paramount’s The Running Man, a new adaptation of the Stephen King novel that Edgar Wright will direct.

    Wright, who’s been attached to the project since 2021, is also producing along with partner Nira Park and genre mainstay Simon Kinberg.

     

    Amazon MGM Studios upcoming stuff:

     Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans’ movie Red One. While we agree to keep mum about the details of the Santa Claus rescue movie, let’s just say the originally conceived for Prime Video title is definitely meant for theatrical, which is where it’s going on Nov. 15; the only wide release currently on that weekend. Let’s just say that Red One is a fire-breathing Christmas action movie that completely reinvents the holiday genre. There hasn’t been a mass appealing Christmas tentpole in six years, the last being Illumination/Universal’s The Grinch which made over a half billion worldwide. Red One is a really fun original action film for both Johnson and Evans, and it’s a world building piece of IP which lends itself to potential sequels set around different holidays.

    Plan B’s The Nickel Boys which will hit theaters this year, the movie based on Colson Whitehead‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and starring Oscar nom Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard).

    There’s also the Bart Layton directed Crime 101 based on the Don Winslow novella which will be released in 2025.

    Also destined for theaters next year is the Luca Guadagnino directed, Julia Roberts starring After the Hunt which is produced by Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer and Allan Mandelbaum and Guadagnino’s Frenesy banner. The film is an intense dramatic thriller about a college professor (Roberts) who finds herself at a personal and professional crossroads when a star pupil levels an accusation against one of her colleagues and a dark secret from her own past threatens to come to light.

    Coming in 2026 is the Ryan Gosling headlining and produced astronaut movie Project Hail Mary from scribe Drew Goddard and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller directing.Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary is getting adapted into a movie, with Ryan Gosling on board to star and produce, Christopher Miller and Phil Lord (the Spider-Verse films) directing, and Drew Goddard (The Martian, Netflix’s Daredevil series) penning the script.

  5. I love ingredient breakdowns like this.

    I mostly use red onions in my daily cooking as the other varieties are more expensive where i live. 

    What onions do you mostly use?  And how do you use them?

  8. I'm really looking forward to what Amorim can do with this squad, especially defensively.

    An excellent in-depth analysis of his tactics if anyone's interested:

    Core Tactical Approach

    Unless anyone has footage from his Casa Pia third division games which proves otherwise, Amorim has always used a 3-4-3 base system for all his teams. This naturally has some variations in different phases of play – and indeed it’s these variations that mark him as an interesting coach tactically (which will be discussed in detail in Part 2 and Part 3) – but his core idea has always been built on a clear positional 3-4-3 foundation with inside forwards3 in the half spaces, wing backs providing width and 3 CBs to recycle possession and provide security at the back, enjoying the strong positional coverage that the formation naturally brings.

    Amorim’s tactical approach is founded upon a solid defence. Having gone almost two decades without a title, Amorim’s prioritised solidity without the ball as the way to bridge the gap to FC Porto and Benfica, with Sporting conceding the lowest xGA in the league in both of his first two full seasons, and again currently lead the way this season.4
