Said Stallone in Cannes, “In every film, Rambo never goes home, he goes out the to the jungle or Afghanistan. In the new one, he does come home, but in a way he never arrives. He’s there, but he’s not. That’s what the whole story is built around. As soon as he walks outside his door, he has no more control. The world controls you.” He also added, “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people getting hurt.”
Speculation is building about potential Venice titles with private screenings for the festival under way. The event, which runs August 28 – September 7, will make its lineup announcement on July 25. Beyond the movies we highlighted yesterday, another that could be in the mix is the Safdie brothers’ Uncut Gems, which is meant to be strong.
