Drive-Away Dolls

Release Date: September 22, 2023

Set for release this fall, the action-comedy-thriller Drive-Away Dolls got its first tease at 2023’s CinemaCon. Ethan Coen writes and directs the project, which features Pedro Pascal, Matt Damon, Margaret Qualley, and Colman Domingo in starring roles.

Here’s what film’s official description:

Jamie regrets his breakup with his girlfriend while Marian needs to relax. In search of a fresh start, they embark on an unexpected road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals.

With the film premiering this fall, there should be a trailer releasing soon from Focus Features. As far as the movie’s overall vibe, we know that the CinemaCon presentation described it as a “sleek and sexy road noir.”

Gladiator II

Release Date: November 22, 2024

The upcoming Gladiator sequel, currently titled Gladiator II on IMDB, is currently filming with production occurring in the UK, Morocco, Spain, and Malta. The project already had an impressive cast before Pascal entered talks with the project. Paul Mescal, Barry Keoghan, Connie Nielsen, and Denzel Washington all joined the project, with Ridley Scott directing. Scott previously helmed the original film in 2000.

It’s unknown the character that Pascal will play in the sequel. However, here’s what we know about the film’s plot.

The sequel will continue the story of Lucius (Mescal), the son of Lucilla (Connie Nielsen). Set years after the original 2000 film, Lucius is now a grown man. (And according to Russell Crowe, who is not appearing in the film, Lucius is now Emperor).

Additionally, Lucius was also the nephew of Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix’s character in the 2000 film), the son of Roman leader Marcus Aurelius who murdered his father, seized the throne, and wound up in the gladiator ring with Maximus. Despite being mortally wounded, Maximus skewered the Emperor before fading into the great beyond to reunite with his slain wife and son. Maximus saved the boy and his mother while avenging his own family and left a strong impression on the young Lucius.

The movie is set to release on November 22, 2024.
