‘Operation Fortune’ Character Posters Show Jason Statham & Aubrey Plaza Dressed to Impress


The Guy Ritchie-directed action movie also stars Hugh Grant, Cary Elwes, Josh Hartnett, and Bugzy Malone.
Lionsgate has released a brand-new collection of character posters for Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre, the upcoming action thriller from Guy Ritchie (The Gentlemen, Sherlock Holmes) set to make its U.S. debut in theaters in just over a week’s time on March 3, 2023. The new images show the leading cast dressed in the way you would expect from a group about to attend a secret black market weapons deal.

The story of Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre follows a team of operatives led by super spy Orson Fortune (Jason Statham) as they hunt down a super weapon held by the billionaire arms dealer Greg Simmonds (Hugh Grant). With his team of world-traveled and tested operators consisting of Aubrey Plaza, Cary Elwes, and Bugzy Malone, a daring plan is formulated to infiltrate an arm’s deal and take down Simmonds and his new weapons technology: blackmail the billionaire’s favorite Hollywood actor Danny Francesco (Josh Hartnett) and use him to bait out Simmonds and save the world. With a plan like that, what could go wrong?
The posters feature all the previously mentioned cast members in fancy clothes that can also be seen in the trailer for the film released earlier this month. Along with their names, we also get an understanding of their position on the team. From these posters, we know that Plaza’s Sarah Fidel is the team’s resident “Tech Genius” while Elwes’ Nathan Jasmine is the “Shot Caller” and Malone’s J.J. Davis is known as the “Sharpshooter.” To round out the rest of the cast, Statham’s Fortune is the “Superspy” while Hartnett’s Francesco is known as the “Star Recruit.” In the case of Grant’s character Simmonds, his place as the film’s villain is put on full display as he has been kindly given the title of “supervillain.”

Operation Fortune Finally Comes to Theaters Next MonthCo-financed by Miramax and SFX Entertainment, Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre was originally set to release early last year on January 21, 2022, but was suddenly removed from the release schedule for the production studios without comment. The film was released in international markets earlier this year in January with Lionsgate getting the U.S. Distribution rights earlier this month and announcing its upcoming March 3 release date. Ritchie serves as both the director of the upcoming film as well as a co-writer, having penned the screenplay alongside Ivan Atkinson and Marn Davies. Both Atkinson and Ritchie are joined by Bill Block as the film’s producers.
Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre arrives in theaters on March 3. You can check out the new character posters and read the film’s official synopsis below:

“In the film, super-spy Orson Fortune (Jason Statham) must track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology wielded by billionaire arms broker Greg Simmonds (Hugh Grant). Reluctantly teamed with some of the world’s best operatives (Aubrey Plaza, Cary Elwes, Bugzy Malone), Fortune and his crew recruit Hollywood’s biggest movie star Danny Francesco (Josh Hartnett) to help them on their globe-trotting undercover mission to save the world.”

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors


Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims


Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
