On the Megalopolis set, Francis Ford Coppola responds to accusations of misconduct: “I’m not sentimental.”

Megalopolis, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, was one of the most talked-about films at this year’s 77th Cannes Film Festival. The Guardian released an article before of the film’s debut that went into detail about the director’s purported misbehaviour on production as reported by staff members. Coppola has now discussed these claims in a new interview and vehemently refuted them.

Coppola’s remarks
When Coppola was questioned about the accusations during the interview, he mentioned his mother Italia and remarked, “She looked like Hedy Lamarr.” I own the photo. I didn’t insult the girls I had crushes on, despite my mother’s advice that making an approach towards a lady indicates you disrespect her. I’m not sentimental. I’m too timid.

Following the publication of the Guardian article, Megalopolis executive producer Darren Demetre made the following statement: “I was never aware of any complaints of harassment or ill behaviour during the course of the project.”

Concerning Megalopolis
Megalopolis, which has been in development for a long time, is described as the director’s passion project. The movie, which is self-financed, supposedly has a $120 million budget. Adam Driver, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Shia LaBeouf, Aubrey Plaza, Laurence Fishburne, Talia Shire, and Jason Schwartzman are among the film’s star-studded ensemble. Despite receiving a seven-minute standing ovation from the Cannes crowd upon its debut, the picture was met with mixed reviews upon its release.

The movie centres on an architect named Caesar, played by actor Adam Driver, who plans to reconstruct New York City as an idealised city after a catastrophe. The setting is a future metropolis reminiscent of the Roman Empire. Coppola’s first picture in ten years is Megalopolis, following the 2011 horror picture Twixt.

Deadpool and Wolverine might shatter box office records, which would be unprecedented for an R-rated film.

The insane collaboration of Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds will eventually lead to record-breaking demand for Deadpool & Wolverine. Who knew, though, that the numbers would plummet even before of the highly anticipated film’s official release date?

Marvel’s first R-rated MCU film is poised to break records and establish a precedent unlike any other. The Quorum, a website that disseminates pre-release film tracking to the public, released a new report that Deadline discovered. It suggests that the next groundbreaking success is already projecting a $200–$239 million domestic opening in the US.

Deadpool and Wolverine’s anticipated first-week box office
Why is this such an urgent matter? First off, there hasn’t been a breakthrough hit that has shot through the roof with such enormous numbers in the declining box office environment in a long time. Though it was first left out of the box office discourse, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s Bad Boys: Ride or Die turned out to be quite the unexpected early bloomer, generating a massive boost for the box office with a domestic debut of $56 million.

Second, no other R-rated film has ever had a $200 million opening weekend. As a result, the rumoured Deadpool threequel, which stands alone apart from the film series, is prepared to take a very different turn.

The American box office record for an R-rated opening is currently held by the first Deadpool movie, which brought in $132.4 million in February 2016. Nevertheless, those characters cannot be associated with the MCU because Disney acquired 21st Century Fox rather late in the game, and the next buddy movie is acknowledged as Deadpool’s formal introduction into this side of the Marvel universe.

Assume that the projected number is confirmed when the movie opens in theatres on July 26. If that’s the case, it may also be hailed as the biggest summer opening, surpassing even Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out 2, which is expected to have a $100 million start this weekend.

Deadpool & Wolverine also has the greatest PLF score, according to Quorom, indicating that audiences are already in accordance with their elite desires to see this movie in a high-end format.

Currently, the data indicates that although 66% of respondents are interested in seeing the movie, 61% would rather do so in a cinema, and 77% are prepared to pay to do so. Furthermore, the predictions for the upcoming absurd Deadpool movie launch could surpass the existing estimates.
