Incredible incident on film set: Alec Baldwin kills the director of photography with a gun (which had to be loaded with blanks)

In the coming months we will certainly investigate more thoroughly what happened on the set of the film “Rust”, where the well-known actor Alec Baldwin accidentally shot (at least for the moment) the director of the photography, killing her.

I vaguely remember other incidents of the kind, but more than anything else they were accidents due to stuntmen who had to do stunts or dangerous scenes …

I don’t remember pistol accidents. Now, while admitting the actor’s good faith, it’s amazing to think how a gun was loaded with live bullets when it only needed to be loaded with blanks.

Baldwin is among the producers of the film while behind the camera of the independent film “Rust” is the director Joel Souza, 48, who was also injured and is now hospitalized at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe. However, there was nothing to do for director of photography Halyna Hutchins, who was shot and transported in serious condition by air ambulance to the University of New Mexico hospital in Albuquerque, where she died shortly after the arrival of she.

Weapons subdue our freedom

Commenting on Pawel Kuczysnki’s drawings can often be trivial. But precisely because the obviousness of things is often overlooked that we become blind. Gun bullets are like makeup lipsticks. In a free and democratic country one might think that the use of weapons is part of one’s freedom. But it is freedom that concedes the use of weapons, or is it the use of weapons that decides freedom..? When the use of weapons rages in the world, force is thought to be the only way to dictate the law and freedom is disguised by the shortest means of reaching one’s ownPurposes:…

A musical track waiting for TOPGUN Maverick (2) in december 2020

 

While waiting for the film to come out, I will place this instrumental track that resurfaces the mythical topgun with Tom Cruise

Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled to be released on December 23, 2020, by Paramount Pictures. It was originally scheduled to be released on July 12, 2019, but was moved back a year in August 2018. On March 2, 2020, Paramount moved the film up two days early on June 24, 2020 from its original release date on June 26, 2020. On April 2, 2020, it was announced that the film release was delayed until December 23, 2020 due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.

 

The autobiography of Val Kilmer, a book entitled “I’m your Huckleberry” was published in the United States in early April. It contains a series of interesting ideas and anecdotes. The actor, who turned 60 on December 31 and who recently had a difficult life due to throat cancer, talks about colleagues and films made, and among these there could not be Top Gun. But it doesn’t end there. Kilmer also tells about his participation in the sequel Top Gun: Maverick, where we will see him reprise the role of the fighter pilot Iceman.

In the autobiography Val Kilmer starts from the first film and talks about his initial skepticism towards the project: “I didn’t want the part” – he writes. “I didn’t care about the movie. I wasn’t interested in the story.” Then he goes on to tell of his audition: “I presented myself with the air of an idiot. I was wearing a pair of ridiculous oversize Australian shorts in vomit green. I read the lines as if I didn’t care. And yet, incredibly, they told me that I got the role, which made me feel disheartened rather than gassed. “

The new Top Gun trailer has been released.

I believe that Top Gun 2 will be the film of the year 2020 but also one of the colossal (or historical films) of the ’20s. Although I was born in the second half of the 80s, I manged to still enjoy the legacy of this film, which has left an indelible memory of the 80s in everyone’s memory. It is impressive to think that this film launched the Reyban culture – the brand of sunglasses – and contributed to the global success of actor Tom Cruise.

Although this film will not match the success of its predecessor – at least in mass culture – it will be a great success and a great confirmation, especially for those who love the action genre.

Undoubtedly the film top gun follows the nature of many Americans in military or patriotic fanaticism. But in any case, the film still leaves a romantic imprint like few films have ever made in history. Another interesting thing is the music and the soundtrack that will accompany the scenes in the film. TopGun is unforgettable especially for its soundtrack, in particular for the song “Take my breath away” of Berlin. I don’t think there will be a hit of the same caliber but I still hope in the beauty of the music.
