RDJ’s music is infused with his experiences
If you are a fan of the actor Gerard Butler, then you may be interested in his latest movie, Plane. The aforementioned movie stars Butler as a commercial pilot whose plane crashes in the Philippines, and he has to rescue the passengers. He is joined by Idris Elba, who plays another hapless pilot, and Toby Kebbell, who plays the man who gets caught up in action. It is a solid ensemble cast, and the film may have a few surprises for you.
Butler’s movie was a hit, and it seems like the actor is taking on more roles in the coming months. In fact, he is slated to play a similar role in a forthcoming movie by director Guy Ritchie, Sherlock Holmes. This particular movie is a prequel to the original and starts filming next month. It is expected that the production is on track to be the box office smash that it has the potential to be.
RDJ’s response to Quentin Tarantino’s “Marvel-ization of Hollywood” statements
Quentin Tarantino recently took a shot at the Marvel Cinematic Universe with statements about the movie stars who appear in the films. He said, “It’s not about the stars; it’s about the Marvels,” but his remarks were met with an outcry from the internet. In response, actor Robert Downey Jr. has been responding to his critics.
The recent Spider-Man: No Way Home film proves that people care about the actors cast in comic book roles. Even Marvel Studios director James Gunn has weighed in with his views. However, some fans are more than willing to root for Robert Downey. He recently attended the Governors Awards at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. His appearance on the red carpet was not what most fans would have expected.
However, his look for the role of Iron Man has transformed. This is due to his role in the upcoming show, The Sympathizer, which is based on the novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen.
RDJ’s interview with the NY Times
In a 2008 interview with the New York Times, Robert Downey Jr. made a big announcement. One of the most impressive claims was that he was involved in the creation of one of the largest computer companies in the world. The other big news was that he was promoting a movie franchise that would be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. However, the most impressive feat is that he managed to do something others have failed to do for years.
Among other things, RDJ showed off his wits by telling the Times he was a “master of self-promotion”. He also did the aforementioned’mimirme’ and did the most interesting thing by using the latest in web-enabled devices to enquire about the history of his name. During the aforementioned presser, the media aficionados on hand were awestruck. For starters, they were surprised that RDJ actually acknowledged that he had played a role in the invention of the computer.
RDJ’s upcoming movies
Gerard Butler recently spoke with Uproxx about his new movie, “Plane.” He said the film has a similar vibe to the Has Fallen trilogy.
The Butler trilogy started with Olympus Has Fallen in 2013. It spawned two sequels, London Has Fallen, and Angel Has Fallen.
Fans loved the action-packed thrillers. They also applauded Gerard’s underdog quality. A scumbag whose name is spat out by his character resembles a headline in the LASD.
“Olympus Has Fallen” spawned two sequels. Antoine Fuqua directed the first one. It grossed $170 million worldwide.
Gerard Butler followed that up with his next film, “Plane.” He plays an airline pilot on a mission to Singapore. But he must protect passengers when his plane crashes on a remote island.
Gerard Butler says “Plane” is a throwback to the 1990s. He tells Uproxx that the movie is more of a grittily realistic aesthetic than a superhero flick.
Gerard’s Has Fallen movies follow the tried-and-true formula of a government or Secret Service operative battling to save the President. However, the trilogy focuses on the plot more than the hero.
