"Cloud Atlas." While on the set of this movie, Tom Hanks started calling Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski, "Mom and Dad," because they worked so well together and as leaders of the cast and crew.

The sequel to Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson-starrer The Hitman’s Bodyguard will now open in the US two months earlier than expected. The new film, titled The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, will be released by Lionsgate on 16 June instead of 20 August, reported Deadline.

The move came after Disney decided to release action-comedy Free Guy , also starring Reynolds, on 13 August.

Scarlett Johansson voiced Mandy in the Spongebob Movie.

The film now arrives the weekend after Warner Bros/HBO Max’s musical In the Heights debuts in the theatres and prior to the release of Universal's F9 on 25 June. Directed by Patrick Hughes, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard sees bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Jackson) stuck in another dangerous mission, this time with Darius' con artist wife Sonia (Salma Hayek).

The movie Gravity was more expensive than the Indian Mars mission.

As Bryce tries to protect this dangerous couple, this trio finds themselves in the crosshairs of a powerful maniac, played by Antonio Banderas. The movie will also feature Morgan Freeman, Frank Grillo and Richard E Grant.
