No “Baywatch 2”: That’s why the sequel with Dwayne Johnson will never exist

Even before “Baywatch” with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron was released in 2017, a second part was planned. Nevertheless, “Baywatch 2” will never come, which the leading actor The Rock has already confirmed.

The once most successful series in the world as a model and also one of the largest current film stars in the main role, with which much becomes box office gold – before the movie release of ” Baywatch ” (2017) with  Dwayne Johnson , everything actually indicated a hit.

But after the film reboot of the cult series fell through with the critics (18 percent with Rotten Tomatoes, 37 with Metacritic), it was largely ignored by the moviegoers. Especially in the United States, Baywatch generated a disappointing $58 million.

The fact that the film did not become a colossal flop was mainly due to Europe. So, a total of $177 million was raised, which is still not enough to justify a continuation with a pure production budget of $70 million (plus marketing costs etc.).

Tickets for just under $42 million were sold in movie theaters in Germany, France and the UK alone.

DEFINITELY NOT A “BAYWATCH 2”

Until shortly after the US theatrical release, a second part was still being aggressively flirted with , the authors Damian Shannon and  Mark Swift had already had a “great story”  in their heads.

Visit free2watch to watch movies online for free. Baywatch and all the other movies with The Rock are available there.

However, after the movie put down a belly smack in the USA, it was understandably completely silent about the sequel plans. And already in spring 2018 Dwayne Johnson gave the whole thing a final rejection: “There is no chance on God’s green earth, under God’s hot sun, that we will ever make a sequel to ‘Baywatch’. That won’t happen, ”the mega-star didn’t leave any back doors open at the time.

THE ROCK DOESN’T REGRET “BAYWATCH”

Nevertheless, he does not regret “Baywatch”. “We had a lot of fun and did it with good intentions. If we had done it right, it could have been great, ” admits Johnson. We doubt that, because it would have needed a much better script, but at least the ex-wrestler can still gain something positive from the whole thing: “I learned valuable lessons from ‘Baywatch’. Unfortunately, only after the film was released. “

“Baywatch”, in which, in addition to Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach,  Jon Bass as well as David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson can be seen in short cameos, can be seen on TV this Sunday, February 2nd.

“Little Women 2”: Could there be a sequel to Greta Gerwig’s Oscar candidate?

Greta Gerwig’s film adaptation of “Little Women” has been in cinemas since January 30, 2020, has been nominated for six Oscars, and has thrilled critics. Sequels to the drama are not excluded! We explain what they could look like …

The novel adaptation ” Little Women ” by Greta Gerwig on February 9, 2020 could take home six Oscars at the 92nd Academy Awards . The drama is nominated in the categories Best Film, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Music and Best Costume Design.

The critics are enthusiastic about the new edition of the classic novel and diehard “Little Women” fans have not been able to get enough of the four sisters for over 100 years. That literally cries out for a sequel. But is that even possible?

THE “LITTLE WOMEN” UNIVERSE COULD CONTINUE TO GROW

Even if Little Women may not be able to keep up with the box office results of Marvel blockbusters, there is always potential for a sequel. When you consider that the novel of the same name by US writer  Louisa May Alcott was published in 1868 and is still loved to be read, there is no denying a great interest in the story of the four sisters.

It’s a good thing that Alcott’s “Little Women” universe is still full of surprises and other stories . First, however, we should take a look at the current movie.

WHAT HAPPENS IN GRETA GERWIG’S “LITTLE WOMEN” …

The four sisters Jo ( Saoirse Ronan ), Meg ( Emma Watson ), Amy ( Florence Pugh ) and Beth March ( Eliza Scanlen ) live together with their mother ( Laura Dern ) in poor but rather happy circumstances. Only the absence of her father ( Bob Odenkirk ), who serves in the Civil War, is always worrying.

Jo and her sisters grow up slowly and try to find themselves and their tasks in life. Your ideas about the future differ widely. While Amy is pursuing a career as a painter and looking for the perfect man, Jo does not want to know about marriage and plans to become a famous author. The neighbor boy Laurie ( Timothée Chalamet ) doesn’t make things easier with growing up …

… AND HOW IT COULD GO ON IN “LITTLE WOMEN 2”

Attention, spoilers!

In fact, Louisa May Alcott wrote sequels to “Little Women” because the books quickly found many readers and were sold well. And in the current movie by  Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”) we already find the first traces of these sequels. So Jo actually fulfills her dream of writing and founds a school with which the March family begins a completely new chapter in life.

The school’s novel Little Men, published in 1871, is about Jo’s school . However, the focus of the story here is no longer just on Jo and her family, but also on the students who attend their unconventional lessons and are slowly becoming young adults themselves.

Another novel appeared in 1886, ending the “Little Women” series. In “Jo’s Boys”, the students from Jo’s school and the March youngsters have grown up and are moving out into the world to go their own way, learn professions and fall in love. However, their paths always lead them back home.

Stories for another “Little Women” film are definitely there. Of course, we do not know whether the film will actually be continued. So far, neither the cast nor Gerwig have commented on a sequel.

Quite unexpected announcement of a new console from Microsoft. Here the Xbox X Series

Yesterday’s awards The Game Awards 2019 brought many exciting announcements, but one completely stole the whole show, and it comes with the trailer revealing the look of Microsoft’s next-gena.Lecturers The Game Awards 2019 announced for some time, they have a lot of news for us, but did not disclose the new Xbox nobody expected. Meanwhile, the event began with just such a strong accent, and although we have some doubts about the name of the new console, because it is not too catchy, it’s probably quickly cease to pay attention to it, like it was her code name, Project or Scarlett.Let’s get right to it, namely the design of the new Xbox, because really we have the opportunity to watch it the first time, and this is highly surprising. The console does not resemble its predecessor because neither competitor, because instead of a flattened “box” rather get kind of “tube” in a square. This means that the Xbox X-Series is much higher than you might expect (in my mind we can already see problems with it under TV) and more like some of compact PC solutions than the console. But we are considering its components should this at all surprising? Not at all, especially if we look at the power of the new console, which has been shown using material from Senua’s Saga II Hellblade filmed on the engine, which you can see above. Yes, by the way, we learned that recently purchased by Microsoft studio Ninja Theory, is preparing to continue his hit, which will be the occasion of the start of the new console title. I just look at the trailer to see that both the continuation Hellblade and Xbox X-Series, we have many good things to offer.In the case of the console it happens thanks to a new graphics architecture from AMD RDNA, as well as the “latest” processor family paired Zen 2 of 6 GB of RAM GDDR6. All this is to make the console will support ray tracing in real time gameplay and in the 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Microsoft also mentions that the equipment will provide support to the resolution of 8K to 120 frames, although it seems a bit exaggerated announcement, corresponding technology for minimizing input lag and ultra-fast SSD of a new generation, which has virtually eliminated load times of games.What’s more, we do not have to worry about our current collection of games, because Microsoft promises backward compatibility with the thousands of production of the four-generation Xbox, and recalls that the compatibility also retain all the giant gaming accessories with the Xbox One, eg. The first generation falls Elite. Besides, we can count on the transfer of records between the states game consoles, and the console will still have the physical drive, so it probably is not the moment in which the industry moves to digital editions. At the end of yet another important message, namely the release date, although this could not look different … end of next year.

Hyperloop car in Las Vegas already has 1,200 meters in length

The company Boring Company, owned by Elon Musk, announced the acceleration of works related to the construction of the world’s first commercial system Loop, which will allow for fast, underground transportation vehicles.Corporation in May last year received approval and huge funds for the construction of the future transport system called Loop in Las Vegas. The authorities recognized the huge potential in this form of transport after the first test system in Los Angeles. We remind you that it is in the City of Angels was built 2-kilometer stretch of experimental.Gambling City authorities want to take advantage of the benefits flowing from the Loop system to communicate with each other the most important part of the city. Two tunnels leading in both directions, they have a length of 1600 meters with three stations and street casinos and connect the airport to the convention center. The choice was not accidental, the center is part of the Tourism Agency Las Vegas and visited by over a million people a year.Company Elon Musk announced that it now already built 1,200 meters of tunnels 3600 meters. Loop system is to be put into use at the beginning of 2021 but all indications are that it can be done quickly, because even in the autumn of this year.The authorities wish to Las Vegas in tunnels advantage of special vehicles Loop, which can carry on its board to 16 people and a platform for cars. Loop has a target to carry 4,400 passengers per hour. The cost of building the entire infrastructure of the future, travel will cost 50 million US dollars and become the showcase of the city not only in the United States, but also worldwide.Elon Musk is confident that such a network of underground tunnels will eliminate the problem of traffic jams in metropolitan areas. For now willing to test-the first one, which has a length of approx. 2 kilometers and is located in Los Angeles. Apparently the length of the tunnel does not allow to communicate efficiently distant parts of the metropolis, but we must remember that the project is still in the experimental phase. All volunteers can ride inside a tunnel full electric Model X and not waste time standing in traffic between the freeway and the streets 105 Hawthorne Municipal Airport. Loop system performs perfectly. The car is undertaken by a special lift from the street, and then lowered inside a tunnel with a diameter of 3.4 meters. Once you find a tunnel, the wheels are attached special bumpers / stabilizers with wheels. The car is moving so far in the tunnel between the seat SpaceX station and O’Leary, a speed of approx. 60 km / h (soon to be 130 km / h, and the target 240 km / h).Boring Company The Company already has an order for the construction of Loop system not only from the authorities of the City of Los Angeles, but also in Chicago. In both cases, the underground tunnels will connect the city center with international airports and to be the fastest and cheapest form of transport for residents. Musk wants to pass the price does not exceed $ 1.

Samsung has created an application through which we learn about what data we collect SmartTV

Consumers are becoming more aware of their rights regarding the collection of data, the Korean company instead of hiding your head in the sand, coming out to meet them … at least a bit. Samsung used CES 2020 to present not only their new TVs for the current year, but interesting software, and specifically accompanying the company’s SmartTV application Privacy Choices. As it turns out, smart TVs have gone in recent years has really come a long way and now no major problems effectively profiles of their users and keep track of their activity, so customers need tools with which they will be able to manage all this.And here comes into play precisely Privacy Choices, which is an application in which you can easily preview what data has been collected about the user based on his preferences in the selection of materials and decide whether they are true. It is true that Samsung was not yet ready to present the application in action on one of their TVs, but assured that the software will soon be available to all. But it is actually the application will have any greater significance?It is difficult to assess, because we have not met all the details yet, but as long as it will serve only insight into the data, not their real control, or the removal or modification, in the field of digital privacy little will change. In short, we can see our actual habits of television, but they will also be a mystery to giants such as Netflix, Amazon or Spotify, whose services we use on our TV or other devices. I do not think that’s what it’s all about, but let’s wait … maybe Samsung will surprise us even when betray all the details.
