Highly Anticipated Fall Movies

While 2018 has been the year of iconic movies, such as the Incredibles 2 and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. The fall has many highly anticipated movies as well, which critics are expecting to be just as enjoyable as their summer predecessors. Even though it is only June and we have the only bee given a handful of trailers to watch – here’s a showcase of a few of the films that are being released through September and November that has film fanatics raving.

Fantastic Beats: The Crimes of Grindelwald

This fantasy drama is a sequel to the hit movie of a similar name, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This film is also tenth in the world of wizard series created by the famed author, J.K Rowling. While the cast is filled with familiar faces that were featured in the first film, such as Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law, as they are attempting to stop a powerful dark wizard while also having to face and hopefully conqueror new threats that are dividing the world of wizards even more.

This film is going to be released on November 16th, and diehard fans of the Harry Potter series and the original Fantastic Beast film are going to be flooding the theatres this fall. From the trailers and the premise released, the film seems to be a direct continuation of the ending of the first film. While the magical is vibrant and unique – the drama lies within the cast of characters as their feelings and trust are being tested as the plot grows tenser.

Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s undeniable, everyone knows of Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of the famed musical group Queen. While he may have passed away over a decade ago, his legend remains in today’s world. Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic of the singer’s life in the group. The lead of Freddie Mercy is played by esteemed actor Rami Malek, who is known for his roles for Mr. Robot and the Night at the Museum series.

This film is expected to be released on November 2nd and already has a few trailers which has Queen fans and movie critics alike excited. One of the highlights of the film is Malek’s likeness to Mercury – which many are expecting to be a great show of a modern-day representation of the British singer’s life and career.

Although the hype surrounding this movie is mainly positive – there are a few critics who are nitpicking the trailers. The main complaint is that the trailers are not showing an accurate description of Freddie Mercury’s sexuality – which many of the film fans have simply stated: “you can’t get the entire movie from a minute trailer”.

The Old Man and the Gun

Who doesn’t love a charming leading character who is a famed bank robber? That’s the main concept gathered from The Old Man and the Gun trailers. While this film is a crime centred movie filled with comedy, it is based on the life of Forrest Tucker, a man who is the ideal of crime and iconic prison escapes. While not much is known about the film, it does feature a colourful cast that has Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek, Robert Redford, and Danny Glover. This film will be released on September 28th, and from what the trailers are showing, it’s going to be a film that has the protentional of becoming a blockbuster success.

Theory of Poker

David Sklansky had the idea that college kids should take up poker and drop out of school, as he was an actuarial student fascinated by numbers instead of the written word. In the end, Sklansky’s mathematical prowess led to leaving school, his goal was to take up poker tournaments, and between 1982 to 1983 he won three gold bracelets.

Sklansky enjoyed a poker career of over 30 years in which he amassed over $1.38 million. However, it was not at the poker tables he made his most meaningful contribution to the world of gambling or poker, but at this typewriter by realing casino gambling books.

While he made a name for himself in poker, Sklansky stopped participating in poker tournaments in 1991 to write and pursue other gambling games. Despite the phenomenal results he enjoyed in tournaments he loved the freedom offered by cash games. Currently, over thirteen books are available, and Sklansky praised for the wisdom he shared but also for how easy it is to read and understand.

Sklansky’s Constant Need to Learn More About Casino Games

If you can learn anything from the poker master and casino gambling books it is that the more you know and learn about gambling or anything else, the better off you are. Another hugely important factor in gambling is fully understanding online casino bonuses. Sklansky believes that if you’re better than everyone else you make money immediately, if there is something you know, and the other person is not willing to learn then he takes their money.

Survival of Heritage & Art Ordinations Depends on Audience Engagement

Art and heritage organisation’s only hope, to remain appealing and relevant is to focus on attracting a larger audience. One of the major factors is the relationship between the audience and the art providers since both arts and heritage sights face several challenges in a modern world.

Heritage and arts organisations need to radically change their audience approach if they wish to survive and remain relevant. After series thought, several realised several traps they fall into. Most heritage sites believe that everyone would find gardens, monuments, the theatre and galleries interesting. While this is mainly true, with online entertainment available in the comfort of people’s homes, it is time to approach the audience completely different. Organisations looking for growth via both its existing or new audiences, often relied on creating project posts. While experts believe a shift is vital in the core and culture activity of such organisations, the fact remains on how audiences are approached.

The first step is to know the audience, often not attended to, as organisations focus on running the operations. The route to true insight might be by establishing a framework offering a more convenient way to remain updated with the ever-shifting interests of the audience. Heritage, museums and art studios need to push the boundaries, take calculated risks and do more to develop new appetites and tastes in attracting an ever-evolving audience

Art & Heritage Sites Interact Better with Audience via Communication, Learning & Socialising

The new way of understanding an audience is by adopting a digital strategy. Given the increasing speed at which individuals live and the demands on their time. Planned cultural experiences need human participation, but even in these, the need for a radical change is vital. Instead of making museum or art gallery visits a special occasion, it should be an experience the world wants to enjoy every day. This would require ways that tap into people’s experience and involve new models of engagement. Digital is integral but focussing purely on it might not be the answer, the only way is to get to the core of what the audience really need and want.

Understanding Visitors, Developing Audiences are Key to Heritage & Art Long-Term Future

Art galleries and museums now focus on spending both money and time on attracting different audiences in the most engaging ways. A twelve-month project of collecting information allowed museums to create detailed profiles of their audiences, which provided an insight into the visitor’s experience on which several physical improvements followed. By increasing the satisfactory levels of visitors, it is finding ways to enrich each visit that could attract visitors from around the globe to art galleries and museums.

The Star Wars Franchise Is Alive and Well

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in 2015, it was immensely popular and gave life to The Star Wars Franchise that took place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. There are now two more in the franchise that will happen as well as one that has had development issues but should hit the big screen in the not too distant future.

Solo: A Star Wars Story – Release Date May 25, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story is the 2nd movie in the Star Wars franchise that is not of the original order after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This movie focuses on a young Han Solo that will be played by Alden Ehrenreich as well as a great cast that includes Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, and Donald Glover playing Lando Calrissian, who was first seen in The Empire Strikes Back. The production for the Solo movie was not a smooth one in the beginning with the directors of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who helmed the Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, being fired after only a few months. Ron Howard was brought on to bring his expertise behind the lens, and the film has created a ton of buzz, especially since the trailers have been released.

Star Wars: Episode IX Release Date December 20, 2019

Star Wars: Episode IX has also had some problems behind the scenes in early pre-production, and that was mainly due to the death of Carrie Fisher. Colin Trevorrow was first slated to be the director, but he dropped out after Fisher passed away and Lucasfilm brought back J.J. Abrams, who directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The main stars of the last two original Star Wars films, not the spinoffs, in John Boyega, Adam Driver, and Oscar Isaac will all be back for what will be the 9th of Star Wars original series, which may be the last one. Or will it? With the popularity of all the movies and the spinoffs created because of it, the 9th and “final” saga will likely not be the finale.

Boba Fett – Rumored to be released in 2020

If they have a move about Han Solo why not have one about his nemesis, who is the best bounty hunter in the galaxy. The movie about Boba Fett began development back in 2014, but also had some issues when Josh Trank would be directing. However, when his Fantastic Four remake was a big-time bomb and not even a year later, Trank was fired, and no director has been named as of yet. There is no casting information and the Star Wars faithful have been looking forward to any information about the Boba Fett movie. Will Han Solo be in it? Just one of the many questions about the highly anticipated movie that may never even come to be.

The Star Wars franchise is alive and well and Solo: A S

tar Wars Story is next in line. Both of the last two of the series and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have been HUGE at the box office, so don’t expect a falloff in the franchise that has spawned a legion of fans and some of the most popular movies of all time.

Biggest Museum Heists of All Time

Art has been stolen for as long as it has been created. For the last couple hundred years, some of the best pieces of art have been held in museums that has seen some of the biggest museum heists of all Time. Here are some of the biggest and most brazen museum heists of all time.

The Louvre, France 1911

It goes without saying that Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is the most famous painting in the world. However, it was stolen from the Louvre in Paris in 1911 by three handymen that worked there. The three his overnight in a supply closet at the museum and one of them in Vincenzo Perugia was the one that put up the protective glass around the famous painting. The thing is the painting was so famous that it was impossible to sell and Perugia hid it in a trunk for over two years. He was caught trying to finally sell it. This theft is not the biggest one in terms of the money of the art stolen, but with the most iconic painting the world-over it has to be on the top of the list.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, USA 1990

This heist was not only relatively recent but also the biggest in terms of the art that was stolen. There were two thieves in this heist, as they were disguised as Boston Police officers. They came to the museum under the guise that there was a disturbance at the museum telling the guard on duty at the time to go get his partner and when he did both were handcuffed by the thieves and hid them in the basement duct-taping them to the pipes there. They stole nearly $500 million worth of paintings with some of the more famous ones being Rembrandt’s Storm on the Sea of Galilee, Manet’s Chez Tortoni, and Vermeer’s The Concert. The thieves were never caught, and these days there are empty frames that hang where the famous stolen paintings used to hang.

The Stockholm Museum, Sweden 2000

In late December of 2000 armed thieves stole nearly $30 million worth of paintings from famous artists such as Renoir and Rembrandt. They set up a diversion in the form of an explosion of two cars to throw the police off their trail and keep them busy while they then used semiautomatic weapons to overtake the museum security and steal the precious art. The thieves then used a small boat as a getaway and were never heard from again.

The Kunstahl Museum, Holland 2012

Gang members from Romania took part in this heist where seven valuable paintings by the artists of Monet, Picasso, Matisse, and Gaugin. The total value of the stolen art was $24 million and, surprisingly, they were not caught right away, as they were making their getaway they tripped the alarm of the museum. However, the Kunstahl Museum is a rather small museum, which, at the time, only used electronic security and no guards were on duty to protect the art.
