Mila Kunis: "We understood that the film would flop"

 The actress explains how the "Matrix" directors' ambitious "Jupiter Ascending" turned into a disaster. Most actors have one - that big movie that could be as awesome as you want, but tanked hard at the cinema and was seen by everyone.   For Mila Kunis, it's "Jupiter Ascending" that sticks out like a black spot on her resume. But what really happened to the "Matrix" directors' spectacular sci-fi film, named one of the big flops of 2015? Money problems happened.   The actress says in a new interview that the film's budget was cut shortly before shooting, which was the death knell for the project:   - When did we know the film would flop? Before production even started, because our budget was cut in half. We would have actually received twice as much money, and then you can do so much more, explains Kunis.   - This type of script has a good story, but also other things that are really spectacular. But for a thousand different reason

Fifth Olympic gold: "Toboggan Mama" Geisenberger triumphs in front of Berreiter


Fifth Olympic gold: "Toboggan Mama" Geisenberger triumphs in front of Berreiter

Natalie Geisenberger stayed cool on her record hunt. The "toboggan mom" glided through the Yanqing ice track as if on rails, passed the exit of the treacherous curve 13 a fourth time without any problems - and was welcomed at the finish by the jubilant German delegation. With all her experience, the record world champion raced to her fifth (!) gold medal at the Winter Games and now has her sights set on an Olympic record.

Debutante Anna Berreiter rounded off the strong German result with silver. Team D had already celebrated a double victory in Pyeongchang 2018 and Sochi 2014 with Geisenberger at the top, since 1998 the Olympic champions in the women's singles have always come from Germany. After Johannes Ludwig's triumph in the men's category, the German lugers, used to success, celebrated their second gold medal in China.

The fact that Julia Taubitz ultimately missed the podium by a long way came as no surprise on Tuesday: After her fall the day before, the world champion fought her way up a few places to seventh place, but ultimately she was only convincing in two of four runs. Bronze went to ROC athlete Tatjana Ivanova.

With her fifth coup, in 2014 and 2018, she also won in the team, Geisenberger caught up with Claudia Pechstein after gold medals. If the German relay wins the team competition on Thursday, the 34-year-old would even leave the speed skater behind after Olympic victories and become the most successful German winter Olympian.

But what Geisenberger means a lot more: After the birth of her son Leo in May 2020, she made it back to the top of the world. After giving birth, the Bavarian quickly returned to world-class level. In Yanqing she remained almost flawless and also celebrated a victory over her own fear.

Remarkably honestly, the best female tobogganer in history spoke about her respect for curve 13, in front of this treacherous section of the world's longest toboggan run at 1475 m. Here Taubitz fell in the second round the day before, Geisenberger had the same fate in the World Cup in November and in the penultimate training session.

"I wasn't nervous about the race, but about the curve down there," Geisenberger reported halfway through the race. Men's Olympic champion Ludwig described the point that lifts many sleds out of the wrong direction due to the round throat as an "executioner".

But Geisenberger, who also wore a necklace with her son's hand and footprints around her neck as a lucky charm during the race, kept her nerve - as did Berreiter. The 22-year-old, a passionate late sleeper, stayed wide awake in all four runs and rewarded herself with her biggest success to date.

Taubitz, on the other hand, who cursed after repeated mistakes in the third run ("So Eine Scheisse"), has to wait at least four years for her big moment on the Olympic stage. The changing of the guard in the German team did not take place in China. Olympia's queen of the ice rink remains: Natalie Geisenberger.

"Zack Snyder's Justice League" is divided into six chapters

 Quite helpful if you prefer to watch the four-hour movie as a miniseries. Do you remember when Zack Snyder announced that his cut version of "Justice League" would be released as a miniseries in four episodes? That idea was quickly scrapped, and what we will see on HBO Nordic in just two weeks is a feature film with an emphasis on long - the superhero party clocks in at a full 4 hours and 2 minutes. But the idea of a miniseries seems to have followed, because the film is divided into clear chapters. I've seen it and can confirm that "Zack Snyder's Justice League" consists of six chapters and an epilogue. After a few minutes of introduction and subtitles, the first text sign appears. Four hours of DC action certainly feels sickly luxurious to many, but somewhat impractical to others. Would you rather divide the film into two sessions? Turn off just when part 4 is about to begin, which is about halfway into the story.

"Annabelle 3" in progress - this is what the film is about

 The horror sequel has received an official synopsis. The last time we saw her was in the summer of 2017, in David F. Sandberg's prequel "Annabelle: Creation".   Soon, the anything but playful doll Annabelle will be back in the cinema. Thanks to an official synopsis, we now know what the audience can expect from the sequel, where the couple Ed and Lorraine Warren (from the "Conjuring" movies) get tampas with evil spirits in their own home. To stop Annabelle from destroying more, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren take home the possessed doll. She is to be locked up "in safety" in their locked room with artifacts, behind sacred glass and with the blessing of a priest. But an unholy night of horror awaits when Annabelle brings to life the other evil spirits in the room, who are all on the same goal - Warren's ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends. "Annabelle 3" belongs to the same horror universe as the "Conjuring" movies
