Will "Gringo" Be One of the 2018 Biggest Blockbusters?
Everyone is talking about the upcoming action-drama "Gringo", starring British-Nigerian actor David Oyelowo! The story follows Oyelowo's character Harold Soyinka, a businessman, who realizes that instead of going to Mexico, he probably should have just stayed home...
During his trip, he discovers he's gotten mixed up in some dirty business with two-faced colleagues, the DEA, drug lords and business moguls. The upcoming movie, which releases on March 9, also stars Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Joel Edgerton, Thandie Newton, Sharlto Copley, and Yul Vazquez.
Meryl Streep Joins Cast for Season 2 of "Big Little Lies"
If you loved Season 1 of "Big Little Lies" and are a fan of Meryl Streep, then get ready for this announcement: Streep is set to join Season 2 of "Big Little Lies" as Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgård)! I know, we were shocked too. The 21-time Oscar nominee will play a doting grandmother to her two grandsons following the death of their abusive father.
However, while she may be family-oriented, it's not her only motive for coming to town. She is coming to learn more about went on behind-the-scenes of Perry and Celeste's marriage and ultimately, what led to his shocking death. The series will also introduce several other characters, including Bonnie's (Zoë Kravitz) parents.
So, we gave you the good news first but now it's time for the bad news: "Big Little Lies" won't be returning until at least 2019. So, it looks like we will all just have to wait to see what will happen next in Monterey!
