Bernie Sanders sneaks into ‘Friends’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Forrest Gump’ … the best memes of the American politician

Bernie Sanders did not win the primaries when he ran for president of the United States for the Democratic Party in 2020, but he has won another award no less important: the best meme of 2021. And we are still in January.

Despite not being part of the government, Sanders became one of the protagonists in the inauguration of Joe Biden, the applauded new leader of the American nation who has been welcomed with open arms in Hollywood. A photo of him sitting with his eyes closed, his arms folded and his hands covered by warm gloves, went viral and became the pattern to introduce Sanders into all kinds of situations through Photoshop.

Bernie Sanders sneaks into the movies

The internet has worked its magic and Bernie Sanders has slipped into the most legendary audiovisual productions, from ‘The Big Lebowski’ to ‘Friends’, through ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Ghost, beyond love’ or ‘This dead man is very alive’. The latter is especially funny because its original title is ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’.

Sometimes it has been the actors and filmmakers themselves who shared images from their own films with Sanders in them, as is the case with Jamie Lee Curtis and ‘Risky Lies’, Ian McKellen and ‘The Hobbit’ or Mark Hamill and ‘Star Wars’. Here we leave you the best cinematic memes that we have found of the American politician.

The politician has already spoken of the viral phenomenon and has launched a jerseys campaign with stamped image. All the money that is raised with the purchases will go to charity, so you can already feel a better person buying funny clothes.

‘Star Wars’: Paul Bettany wants to reprise Dryden Vos

There is less than a week left for the premiere on Disney + of ‘Scarlet Witch and Vision’ on January 15 and its cast is in the middle of a promotional campaign for the series. During an interview for the YouTube channel Jake’s Takes, journalist He asked Paul Bettany which character in his career he wishes he could continue to develop and the actor has no doubt: Dryden Vos, the villain of ‘Han Solo: A Star Wars Story’.

Vos was part of the Crimson Dawn Crime Syndicate under Maul (Ray Park / Sam Witwer). He recruited Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke) and hired the Beckett Gang to steal coaxium. After being betrayed by Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and facing him in a battle, he ended up dying at the hands of Qi’ra with his own weapon, so the character does not have much future, but the past: “Oh, I would love to play with Dryden Vos. I love that idea.” Bettany responds in the interview.

A future at Disney +

There were many rumors about a possible spin-off series of the young Han Solo, rumors that Ron Howard himself commented in an interview with the podcast Lights, Camera, Barstool in November: “Nothing is said about a possible sequel. What I say is not a spoiler or anything, but there is interest in these characters. I think the world of gangsters is very interesting, but I can assure that it is not developing not a movie or anything for Disney + right now. But it’s great that Solo has been shown so much appreciation, so of course it’s a good way for this to eventually change. ” In the end, the one who got his solo series was the character of Lando Calrissian, although it has not been anticipated if it will be the incarnation of Billy Dee Williams or that of Donald Glover.

In addition, in the coming years a new season of ‘The Mandalorian’ will arrive on Disney +, the solo series of ‘Ahsoka’, ‘Andor’ and ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’, ‘Rangers of the New Republic’ and many other projects of the ‘Star Wars’ universe that seems to be expanding endlessly.


Strategies and protocols for filming erotic scenes

If there pandemic It was happening in the era of analog image, the only special effect at hand would lie in the arbitrariness of the montage and in making the out-of-field the key to access all the shots. That is to say, instead of filming an instance of happy eroticism of a couple, this could be observed satisfied. But in the digital age anything is possible. Who could have guessed at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) that Peter Cushing Was it not him but Guy Henry with the face of that one thanks to a process of digital assembly between the gestures of the deceased actor and the other who lent his body? Fantasy of The congress, by Ari Folman, a film released just eight years ago, in which legendary movie stars could give up their image rights so that digitally generated versions of them could be used in films of the future is no longer just a fantasy.

Indeed, the digital constructionism it has already produced prodigious dinosaurs and gigantic monkeys that take up the past tradition of romantic love without us noticing the ontological invariance of the case. That is why kissing a mannequin or inflatable doll in the register and completely disrupting it in post-production is undoubtedly a solution that even the most seasoned eye will simply be able to miss, although it will not be long before the presence of a man or woman. a woman can be simulated by software.

Another option that producers are evaluating is the use of ultra-thin sheets capable of warding off possible infections and at the same time ideal to be invisible in post-production. For those who want to corroborate how these tricks work, it is enough to review some recent chapters of the American soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.

The prevailing logic is none other than an aesthetic of the prophylaxis, perhaps an unexpected extension of the prowess of the condom to any epidermal exchange, a sort of puritan fantasy by which pleasure is simulated and neutralized while waiting for the improvement of some software that will resurrect old stars of yesteryear to materialize fantasies and to ensure our status as secret witnesses of the moments of intimacy of strangers.

‘Star Wars’: Robert Downey Jr. could be in talks with Lucasfilm

After playing one of the most important and beloved superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Robert Downey Jr. could make the leap into the ‘Star Wars’ saga to give life to one of the future villains of ‘The Mandalorian’ and ‘Ahsoka’. The rumor came from the web We Got This Covered, where they ensure that The ‘Iron Man’ actor has reunited with Jon Favreau to play Grand Admiral Thrawn, a brilliant and ruthless strategist in the Imperial Armed Forces.

According to this website, Downey Jr. would have a significant and recurring role, and not a simple cameo, and they even venture to talk about a “long-term contract”. Thrawn’s character is mentioned in the second season of the Mandalorian by Ahsoka Tano, Rosario Dawson’s character, who goes after his trail with the intention of facing him, so she could also have a lot of presence in her future solo series. Mitth’raw’nuruodo, Thrawn’s real name, has appeared in the animated series’ Star Wars Rebels’ and ‘Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes’, the video game’ Star Wars: Force Arena ‘and multiple canon novels of the’ Star Wars universe ‘.

Although for now they are only speculation, this theory began to generate a great disturbance in the Force when Noah Outlaw, responsible for Kessel Run Transmissions and known for his firsts, he echoed the news in a tweet that he later deleted and in which he assured that the actor would go to a galaxy very, very far away, but not with the character we believe.

More and more titles on the way

We learned a few weeks ago that Chris Pratt would be in the cast of Taika Waititi’s movie as Star-Lord, and although it was not confirmed by Kevin Feige in his Disney Investor Day presentation, it was Pratt himself who did it. He has escaped in a direct on Instagram while talking to Tom Holland: “Did you just say you’ll be in ‘Thor’?” Holland asks, to which Chris Pratt responds: “Yeah, was I not supposed to say it?”. “It’s crazy, I don’t think anyone knew”, to which Pratt says: “No, they did. I think they knew.”. We knew it, but official confirmation is fine.

In addition to that, the actor revealed when he was going to go to the shoot: “I’ll be with ‘Thor’ in Australia, so I will travel to Australia in a week. Filming is therefore imminent. As we already knew, the fourth installment of the films focused on the character of Chris Hemsworth will feature the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who will become the new goddess of thunder. Christian Bale has also been confirmed in the role of Gorr, the butcher of gods. Also returning are Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif.

Pedro Pascal and Oscar Isaac have been very good friends for many years. The paths of Hollywood led them to end up in the same universe, although they have not shared adventures together like Din Djarin and Poe Dameron. While one continues to triumph with ‘The Mandalorian’, the other said goodbye to ‘Star Wars’ at the end of 2019 with the premiere of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’.
