CAPTAIN AMERICA---Frank Grillo commented on if he's returning as Brock Rumlow in the second sequel, "I'm cautiously optimistic that you will see me in the not too distant future in the next installment of Captain America. Very early on the [directors] said, 'Look, this is an origin film for this character. We're gonna discover who this is and this is a big movie with a lot of moving parts, but we're gonna discover you in this film and, you know, here's the information about who Brock Rumlow turns into...it's obvious Rumlow is covered in rubble and burned to crisp at the end, but you see he's still there. They don't do that for no reason...He needs a costume! Coincidentally it could be a mask with a crossbones on it."
Grillo confimerd he's starring in the US remake of THE RAID.





AQUAMAN---Jason Momoa (GAME OF THRONES) will have a cameo role as Aquaman in BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and have a larger role in JUSTICE LEAGUE.

THE MONEY PIT---the Long Island house featured in the 1986 comedy movie starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long is on the market for $12.5 million.





X-MEN: APOCALYPSE---writer/producer Simon Kinberg said the sequel will be set in 1983.

Poor old Ford, it's probably a very nasty break if they're having to screw plates in, he doesn't need that at his age. I broke my ankle a few years ago, but they managed it with just a plaster cast.

Ah The Money Pit, one of my favourite comedies from the 80s - great movie, although I think I'm a bit of a lone voice as I don't know a single other person who likes it.

I'll put my hand up to that one....it's a fun bit of fluff....

I though the US remake of THE RAID had stalled? Needs to stall more...it's a ridiculous idea....

I'm with you, Mike J. I love the movie. It's hard to believe that house is only $12.5 million.

I thought the film was hilarious! Then again I'm a Tom Hanks fan. I love him in both comedy and drama.

If I remember correctly Alec Guinness got a bit roughed up in Star Wars.

Love, love, love The Money Pit--especially the character of Max, who stole every scene he was in. (His message to the orchestra after their rehearsal is to die for.) Good score, too.

I wonder, is Aquaman being considered as a serious movie project? That's the idea I get from fan casts like this: http://www.ranker.com/list/aquaman-fan-cast/ryanwitalison

It is the one movie I walked out of. Also asked for a refund from the management.

I don't think so-I've certainly never heard anything to suggest that ever.

He was quite poorly at the time he filmed his role in TESB and did it all in front of a blue screen in one day. Perhaps you are getting mixed up with that?

It wasn't that bad, but in terms of great comedies from 1986 it comes behind the likes of Gung Ho, Ruthless People and Three Amigos!.

Wow, 1980s love truly is unconditional. wink

Speaking of which, I'd put The Money Pit above those three you mention.

Love the Money Pit - but I have to admit I found it funny when I saw it - it became absolutely hilarious after I bought our first house!

Love Money Pit but Gung Ho was the best of the lot!

Kazihiro: Can we count on you?

Hunt Stevenson: Fellas... is a frog's ass watertight?

Kazihiro: [he discusses it with his colleagues in Japanese] Yes. We believe it is.

Nothing in The Money Pit matches "Am I to understand that I'm being marked down?... I've been kidnapped by K-Mart!" (Ruthless People). Too bad the only person I can think of who worked on both - Michel Colombier - is unavailable to pick which is the better...

I don't get all the love for The Money Pit. The '80s is a decade overstuffed with far better comedy flicks.
