Adam Sandler, once one of the most famed comedians worldwide seems to be losing his stardom after a series of blockbuster office flops. Mr. Sandler’s latest film is Pixels & it’s obvious that this film was meant to bring him back on top. Unfortunately the exact opposite happened as on its opening weekend it only earned $24 Million, which is a poor showing considering the movie cost in excess of $80 million to produce.
The Cobbler, a film few has heard of from Sandler only opened at $24,000 years ago before he became a blockbuster success. Unfortunately in recent years films such as “That’s My Boy” and “Jack and Jill” have earned record lows for the actor but Pixels set a new low unlike any he has had in decades. There are a number of reasons why Adam Sandler is no longer the kingpin of funny. It’s mainly due to the fact that every role he plays in is essentially the same in terms of his comedy. His material dates back to his time on Saturday Night Live and as his audience continues to age he does not. This proves to be an issue.
Movie reviews around the globe believe that it’s time for Adam Sandler to step down from comedy and focus on dramatic acting. The film “Reign over Me” which stars Adam, Don Cheadle and Jada Pinkett Smith is truly a heart wrenching film that puts viewers on the edge of their seats. As his audience grows Sandler doing more films such as this one could allow for his acting career to remain alive for decades to come.
Marvel, a company which is beloved by billions around the world is currently owned by Disney. Disney purchased out Marvel for $4 Billion and in return they gained all movie rights, all comic book rights, merchandise rights and so on. This deal has already panned through for Disney with the earnings from all the movies & various other products sold.
On the television side of things Marvel hasn’t been able to do as well as Detective Comics (DC). Fortunately for Disney, Netflix picked up the character of “Daredevil” for a Netflix original series & its results in utter fame. It’s now one of the most popular Netflix shows ever released, beating out the likes of Sense 8 and Bloodline. Due to the mass success of this television program on Netflix there are going to be dozens of new characters introduced into the series. One of the most recent revealed is “The Punisher”, being played by Jon Bernthal from The Walking Dead (Shane Walsh). There are other characters being introduced include Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. The other characters to be introduced haven’t been revealed as of right now. No information about these future shows have been announced either.
Each of these characters will also be getting their own television series from now to 2019. That is most likely the reason as to why they’ve been announced and as to why no one else has been announced. We shall keep you up to date on any new information revealed regarding the Daredevil Netflix television series.
