Tim Travers and the Time Traveller’s Paradox
Deadline also reports Samuel Dunning, Joel McHale, and Danny Trejo have wrapped filming on Tim Travers & The Time Traveler’s Paradox, a new sci-fi comedy from director Stimson Snead. In the film, Dunning stars as “a narcissistic but broke scientist who seeks to solve the paradox of what happens to your past self when a future version travels backward in time. His work attracts the attention of the head of a mercenary army played by Machete star Trejo, while McHale plays a conspiracy theorist radio host whose interviews with the scientist protagonist on his mind-bending work frame the narrative.”
Dune: Part 2
During a recent interview with Collider, Dave Bautista stated Dune: Part 2 is “much more cutthroat” than the first film, with “some funny moments” of “absurd humor.”
This is so amped up from the first film. The first film was just an introduction to what this film is. There’s just so much going on, it’s so much more cutthroat and political and intense. And there are moments of levity where [there are] some funny moments, and they’re kind of absurd humor, but there are those moments. So it’s just so much more amped up than the first film.
Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3
In a separate interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Bautista described Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 as “the perfect exit” for his character, Drax.
I think, yeah, it’s weird, I don’t know why it’s news. I feel like it’s…so this is my seventh film as Drax, and my third Guardians, and it’s like our trilogy, and that’s kind of what we all signed up for, to do a trilogy. This will be the last version of our Guardians of the Galaxy.
It’s hard, but it’s time, and it’s the perfect exit. We all had those perfect kind of character arcs and such a storybook ending.I constantly relate it to the way I finished my wrestling career, I ended it on a storybook note and I would never go back and tarnish that, and it’s the same with this, with Drax. I just got to end it in a perfect way, and I would never sign up for another job as Drax just to get a paycheck, I wouldn’t tarnish that and I won’t do it.
