Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh both came down with pneumonia, but pushed through filming on set of Black Widow. The latest Marvel movie is scheduled for release later this year, starring Scarlett, 36, back in action as her Avengers character Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow and Florence, 25, as Yelena Belova – who is like a sister-figure to Natasha. Production wrapped on the film last year, with filming taking place in London, Norway, Morocco, Atlanta and Budapest, but the movie’s director Cate Shortland has now revealed that Black Widow’s leading stars both fell ill. Scarlett and Florence came down with pneumonia on set but pushed through with filming despite being unwell.

‘It was like being in the army,’ filmmaker Cate told The Gentlewoman, as she touched on the intense schedule production brought with it. Cate also opened up about what it was like to work with Scarlett and how the actress had pushed her to create a standalone Black Widow film that meant something.

‘She’s completely unpretentious,’ Cate said of Scarlett. ‘And that makes her really fun to be around. She’ll be joking with the best boy or the runner, there’s no hierarchy. She appreciates people and makes people feel appreciated.’ Cate continued: ‘[Scarlett] really pushed to make something that wasn’t flimsy or superficial. She wanted to make something that meant a lot to young people and to women. ‘She knew it was possibly her last film as Black Widow – she didn’t want to leave Marvel making a feel-good movie.’

Black Widow will pick up from the event of Captain America: Civil War and will follow Scarlett’s character Natasha as she confronts her past and broken relationships she left behind to become an Avenger. The movie also stars Stranger Things actor David Harbour, Rachel Weisz and will see Robert Downey Jr feature as Tony Stark. Since last year, Black Widow has faced multiple pushbacks due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Disney now announcing that its release date has been scheduled for July 2021.

The next movie that I have replace out previous DVD DVD Screen Captures today is her 1998 and first mainstream staring movie The Horse Whisperer. Scarlett plays Grace MacLean a little girl who getting into a horse accident that kills her best friend, takes her leg and hurts her horse badly and rightfully so she is traumatised from it and wants nothing to do with her horse any more, But with her mom (Kristin Scott Thomas) making her and the help of Tom Booker (Robert Redford who was the Director as) she learns to love again and come to terms with what happened to them both. It’s a very heartfelt movie and show’s from a young age Scarlett would become the star she is today and it had me crying my eyes out to. More movies to come soon with us jumping to 2001 time.

W Magazine – Scarlett Johansson’s 30-year career is a testament to the fact that she has the range. But recent years have brought plenty of criticism that the 36-year-old can go too far—though, as Johansson again made clear in a new interview with the Gentlewoman, she has no regrets. It all started with Ghost in the Shell, a 2017 manga series that arguably should have starred a Japanese actor. (Johansson defended her decision, asserting she “would never want to feel like [she] was playing a character that was offensive.”) The outcry over Johansson’s next role, as a transgender massage parlor owner, was even more extreme, to the point that Johansson eventually stepped away from the film—but not before defending herself first.

“You know, as an actor I should be allowed to play any person, or any tree, or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job,” she infamously told the magazine As If. And, unlike stars such as Timothée Chalamet and Kate Winslet, she’s staunchly stood by Woody Allen. “I love Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime,” she told the Hollywood Reporter in 2019, referring to the well-documented allegations of his sexual misconduct. “It’s hard because it’s a time where people are very fired up, and understandably.”

At this point, one has to wonder if Johansson is actually drawn to controversy. And according to her interview with the Gentlewoman, the answer is yes. “Yeah, I’ve made a career out of it,” she said. “I’m going to have opinions about things, because that’s just who I am.” At the same time, she continued, “I mean, everyone has a hard time admitting when they’re wrong about stuff, and for all of that to come out publicly, it can be embarrassing. To have the experience of, Wow, I was really off mark there, or I wasn’t looking at the big picture, or I was inconsiderate. I’m also a person.”

“I can be reactive,” Johansson continued. “I can be impatient. That doesn’t mix that great with self-awareness.” Hence why she’s been trying to learn how to recognize “when it’s not your turn to speak.”

Still, Johansson doesn’t really sweat it. “I don’t think actors have obligations to have a public role in society,” she said. “Some people want to, but the idea that you’re obligated to because you’re in the public eye is unfair. You didn’t choose to be a politician, you’re an actor. Your job is to reflect our experience to ourselves; your job is to be a mirror for an audience, to be able to have an empathetic experience through art.” Her goal is for the audience to “see pieces of themselves, or are able to connect with themselves through this experience of watching this performance or story or interaction between actors or whatever it is.” And “that,” she asserted, is her job. “The other stuff is not.”

Black Widow has been moved again this time to July 9th but now it will be both in cinemas and Disney+.

LA Times – The Walt Disney Co. has set a new opening date — July 9 — for its much-anticipated Marvel Studios film “Black Widow.” The feature will be released simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+ for an additional fee, the company said Tuesday.

Disney’s “Cruella” will be released May 28, also in theaters and through the Disney+ Premier Access strategy, which charges a $30 fee for new movies. Pixar’s “Luca” will go directly to Disney+ on June 18 for no additional charge.

The decision has been the subject of will-they-won’t-they speculation in Hollywood as theaters reopen in major cities in hopes that the return of blockbusters will draw filmgoers back to the big screen. Movie houses in the greater Los Angeles area reopened last week, following the return of cinemas in New York City.

Theater companies were hoping Disney would stick with its previously planned May 7 release date for “Black Widow.” The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines has boosted optimism among some analysts that audiences will start to come back to theaters when there are major Hollywood movies to see.

But continued concerns over the spread of the coronavirus and capacity limitations on theaters are still giving studios pause when it comes to their largest productions. Blockbusters depend on wide theatrical releases to become profitable.

“Today’s announcement reflects our focus on providing consumer choice and serving the evolving preferences of audiences,” Kareem Daniel, chairman of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution, said in a statement. “By leveraging a flexible distribution strategy in a dynamic marketplace that is beginning to recover from the global pandemic, we will continue to employ the best options to deliver The Walt Disney Company’s unparalleled storytelling to fans and families around the world.”

With an estimated budget of more than $200 million, “Black Widow” certainly qualifies as a big Hollywood movie. Though films such as “Tom & Jerry” and “The Marksman” have come out during the COVID-19 pandemic, , most big-budget films have been pushed back.

The release date for the Scarlett Johansson superhero spy thriller has been delayed by roughly a year because of the pandemic, which kept indoor theaters closed for the bulk of the last 12 months. Its most recent postponement was in September, when Disney moved it to May 7 from Nov. 6 amid continued concerns about the coronavirus’ spread.

Disney’s announcement comes just after the British movie theater company Cineworld said that Regal Cinemas — the second largest U.S. chain — will reopen its doors starting in early April. The phased reopening begins with “a limited number of cinemas” opening for Warner Bros.’ “Godzilla vs. Kong” on April 2 and will expand with “Mortal Kombat” on April 16. Both movies go to HBO Max the same day they hit theaters.

Cineworld also said Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with Warner Bros. that will return the Burbank-based studio to the model of exclusive windows for theaters in 2022. Starting next year, Warner Bros. will release movies in theaters for 45 days before they can be released to the home through premium rentals.

The standard theatrical widow for new movies before the pandemic averaged about 90 days; attempts to close that gap were long resisted by theaters. But pandemic closures accelerated studios’ attempts to experiment with different models.

Universal previously reached similar agreements with AMC Theatres and Cinemark, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 3 chains, respectively. Under the deals, Universal movies can go to premium video on demand after 17 days. With Cinemark, the window lengthens to 31 days for movies that gross more than $50 million in an opening weekend.

Disney has pursued a three-pronged approach to releasing movies during the public health crisis. The entertainment giant sent “Hamilton” and “Soul” straight to Disney+ while theaters were hobbled. With “Mulan” and “Raya and the Last Dragon,” the company put the films on Disney+ through its Premier Access strategy. For other big movies, Disney has chosen to push back opening dates until a theatrical release is more likely to succeed.

Black Widow promo is starting again and Scarlett at last has her first magazine cover and photoshoot of the year with The Gentlewoman Magazine – Spring 2021. It’s a amazing photoshoot and how good does she look with long hair like this and a very good interview as well. You can pre-order the magazine HERE for £8 + Shipping but please note shipping is a lot right now. You can view the photos in the gallery and read some of the interview below, please click the link to read the full one.

The Gentle Woman – Back in the leather catsuit for the eighth time in May, Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson’s sassy Marvel character, has her own film at last. Over 30 years in show business, the 36-year-old actor has soared steadily from indie darling to box office draw, and she now has the powers to cast a woman in the director’s chair. It’s Scarlett’s fanatical commitment to outlandish parts that keeps fans coming back for more. And with her own production company, she’s free to make work as rich and as challenging as she is herself.

Hanging behind Scarlett Johansson, who’s at home in New York, is a painting by the artist Lois Dodd, once described as the most famous painter of windows in America. It’s a huge canvas, dominated by a deep purple dusk and a large clapboard house, one celebrated window lit up yellow, looming above Scarlett’s head like an idea. “I was thinking maybe I could frame it so it looks like I’m in the painting,” she says. It’s one of those mid-Zoom thoughts you have as you see yourself, yet again, pinned in the corner of a screen.

Over the past year and its many Zooms, with the surplus of events on one hand and the lack of happening on the other, Scarlett has learned a few things about herself. “Well, I’ve never spent this much time off. Ever. In my entire life.” She widens her eyes behind thick black-framed glasses. “I’ve been working for almost 30 years!”

She’s 36.
“It’s crazy,” she says. “It’s insane. I have a really long white beard that I shaved off just before this.”
You could retire, I suggest.
“It’s not even early retirement,” she says, a little rueful.

From child acting – off-Broadway as a kid, Manny & Lo at 12, The Horse Whisperer at 14 – her career has grown exponentially and irrepressibly, indie to Marvel. She’s not the kind of actor who, having hit the superhero jackpot, slides lazily into a plateau, making one film a year playing an approximation of herself. Instead, she’s somehow retained the status of a character actor with blockbuster effect. Or, as Sofia Coppola, who directed her in Lost in Translation, the film that catapulted her career into the big leagues back in 2003, put it over email, “She’s proven that she can be a bombshell and also a respected actress with depth and strength.”

Over her years enmeshed in the Marvel universe, Scarlett has revealed a mastery of hand-to-hand stunt combat, but she’s also given her character, Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, mystery and humour. “What’s really great about her as an actor is she can’t do fake,” says Cate Shortland, the director of Black Widow, Scarlett’s first stand-alone Marvel film, due to be released in May. “There’s no BS; she has to believe it.” Rachel Weisz, her co-star, agrees. “She is extremely talented and hard-working and passionate about her role. She’s a straight shooter, very focused and clear about the story she is telling.”

In return, the Marvel machine has given Scarlett incomprehensible wealth and genuine power. She was the highest-grossing female actor in Hollywood in 2018 and 2019 and now has the heft of a mogul: she can get movies made and hand-pick her directors. (Of the 49 women directors considered for Black Widow, the under-the-radar Cate Shortland made the last three and was then chosen after conversations with Marvel producers and Scarlett, who had liked her previous film, Lore. “It was about that connection,” Shortland says now.)

Though Marvel tends to dominate the landscape, it’s Scarlett’s other roles that reveal her particular elasticity as an actor. She can stretch from a strangely loveable disembodied voice (Her) to a haunting alien killer (Under the Skin), from a synchronised-swimming 1950s movie star (Hail, Caesar!) to a devastated divorcing actor (Marriage Story). She seeks characters that derail preconceptions – particularly those related to her beauty, the kind that has bamboozled male journalists for decades – and brings to them an alchemy of fanatical commitment, off-kilter wit and a sardonic intelligence that often reveals itself in perfect, ironic opposition to the wide-eyed, credulous expression on her face. Over email, the director Noah Baumbach, who wrote the part of Nicole in Marriage Story specifically for Scarlett, recalled moments in the film “where nothing is spoken and her face says everything. It’s that thing when the internal becomes external. And a close-up can be the greatest shot imaginable.”

Reportdoor – Disney CEO Bob Chapek has insisted that Scarlett Johansson-front superhero movie Black Widow is still on course to make its debut in theatres worldwide. During an investor call on Thursday, Chapek said the company has no plans to send the Marvel Studios project to its streamer Disney Plus, as per Deadline. “We are still intending for it to be a theatrical release. We are going to be watching very carefully to see whether that strategy needs to be revisited,” he said. After Wonder Woman 1984’s Select Release on HBO Max, Marvel Fans Wonder if Black Widow Will Also Follow Suit and Come Out on Disney+

Black Widow, featuring Johansson in her last appearance as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, was originally scheduled for release in May 2020 but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The film is currently slated to release on May 7 this year. During the pandemic, Disney has made some bold moves to compensate for the closure of movie theatres. It took the decision of sending its big-budget live-action movie “Mulan

” to Disney Plus. Black Widow, Eternals, West Side Story And Other Movies That Have Postponed Their Release Dates!
The studio also sent animated feature “Soul” to the streamer, while another movie “Raya and the Last Dragon” will be debuting simultaneously in theatres and on Disney Plus for an extra USD 30. “Some films we will take theatrically. Some films we will take to Disney Premiere Access. And in some cases, we will take it directly to service (Disney Plus). It’s really about flexibility. We’re going to steer our decision making over time given (the needs) of our subscriber base,” Chapek said.
