This Max mafia film was so realistic, its writer feared for his life

Mobster movies explore the violent and shocking underworlds of corruption and amorality. From Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather to Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning The Irishman, they're popular. These gangster movies do their utmost to make a secret world accessible to most and sublimate the turmoil and bloodshed via very personal and occasionally relatable individuals, always wondering if the ends justify the methods. Matteo Garrone, who director Gomorrah (2008), allegedly colluded with genuine mafia members to make the film. After receiving death threats for disclosing mafia secrets in his non-fiction book of the same name, Roberto Saviano spent eight years under armed guard. The film is harsh and disturbing.

What's ‘Gomorrah’ About?

Mob films are docu-dramas that introduce audiences to unexpected groups. Gomorrah takes viewers into Naples' harsh streets and shows how culture and criminality intersect. The film follows the Casalesi clan in Naples' Camorra crime group. Two factions fight after an assassination in a hair salon, setting the story of five people whose lives are touched by the conflict. The story is like ripples in a pond, where one occurrence and its mayhem affects or infects everyone.

The film opens with mafia middleman Don Ciro (Gianfelice Imparato) distributing illicit cash. As a result of the salon hit, this seemingly harmless individual is ambushed and forced to sell out his countrymen to survive. His treason leads to his bosses' death, ending in a bloody, bullet-soaked cash flurry. In uncertain times, Don Ciro limps past his former bosses' bodies as the assassins leave him a mound of bloody money. This beautiful Naples street introduction shows the audience what drives its members. Violence is daily and for pay. This is disturbing since the book it's based on is based on genuine occurrences.

Next arcs, like Totò (Salvatore Abruzzese) at 13, relate similar stories. A bag of guns and drugs is returned to the gang by the boy. He tries to join and is shot in the chest while wearing a homemade bulletproof vest. Gangsters must master guns. The youngster later helps his group lure a woman out of her apartment to murder her, a horrifying tale of innocence ruined by gangland life.

How Does the Movie Differ From the Book?

The film's events are fictional, but the book is based on journalist Roberto Saviano's childhood in Naples. Saviano wrote in The Guardian that he was outraged about neighborhood violence as a child.

Soon after his 2006 book was published, Saviano received death threats. He recounts the sobering occurrence in The Guardian "My mother received a brochure in the mailbox. She lived in Caserta, while I lived in Naples. I was photographed with a pistol to my head and the word “Condemned”." However, the threats continued, forcing the author to live under armed escort for eight years. The mafia's corrupting and frightening influence was even used to make the film, which Saviano may yet be protected from.

Did Matteo Garrone Cast Real Mobsters in ‘Gomorrah’?

Matteo Garrone cast real-life mobsters in his film. Variety reports that many of the film's non-professional performers had real-life ties to the Camorra clans and have been imprisoned for extortion and drug trafficking since its debut. The film's brutal and spectacular depiction of Naples mafia life was lauded due to the director's ability to get great performances from non-professional actors. Realism from the filmmaker and many of the performers' tough Naples upbringing made the picture a hit, winning the Jury prize and a Palme d'Or nomination at Cannes in 2008.

Because it never stops, the mafia's reach continued. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Casalesi clan member and Castel Volturno massacre culprit Oreste Spagnuolo said that the director worked with and paid protection money to real-life mafiosos to make the picture. While these charges have never been proven in court, they are commonly believed because the director didn't have as bad a mob experience as Saviano during filming. This supports Saviano's claim that the mafia corrupts Italian society.

Gomorrah is a terrifying, breathtaking thriller that shows Naples' filthy underbelly with startling elegance and beauty. It is a mafia movie you must see, packed with gritty brilliance that comes from deep knowledge of the topic. Although fictitious, it catches the essence of Saviano's book, never glorifying mob life but revealing the hazardous realities of a romanticized existence.


This Pirates of the Caribbean movie was made in a very disorganized way, which will make you shiver

It's possible that Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is one of the best action-adventure movies of the 2000s. It was based on a popular Disney theme park ride and came out in 2003. Other than two very disappointing versions, there was nothing else like it. It was a classic adventure story with a modern twist. The characters were recognizable, and everyone in the group gave great performances. Please don't forget what a huge hit the first movie was; it was like fire in a bottle, and not even the sequels could top it. There were a lot of great performances in this movie. Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow was a legend, Keira Knightley made everyone fall in love, Orlando Bloom got a huge boost after The Lord of the Rings, and Geoffrey Rush, Zoë Saldaña, and Jack Davenport kept the audience laughing.

Seeing that makes the fact that the movie almost didn't happen even stranger. Even though it wasn't as notoriously cursed as some other sets, making the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was a mess from start to finish. An ambitious project with lots of big action scenes probably won't have the easiest days on set. Luckily, The Curse of the Black Pearl doesn't have any scary supernatural backstories or serious injuries, so it doesn't get the bad reputation that movies like The Exorcist and The Wizard of Oz do. Even though the cast and crew of this ship weren't looking for trouble, they found it everywhere they turned.

Michael Eisner is an executive at Disney. 'The Curse of the Black Pearl' Was Not True

Gore Verbinski directed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie, and Jay Wolpert wrote it. From the start, they were the favorites. Even the idea of making a pirate movie was risky, since most people thought the genre was dead after Cutthroat Island, which came out in 1995 and was a huge disappointment. The movie was also based on a theme park attraction, which the company has failed to do three times before, most recently with Mission to Mars (2000) and Tower of Terror (1997). Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was supposed to be a direct-to-DVD movie, like a Disney animated sequel. This shows that the studio and Michael Eisner, who was CEO at the time, didn't believe in the idea.

The creation of the movie was very up and down because of this, and Eisner wanted to stop everything more than once. He thought that the movie's PG-13 rating, which it would get because The Curse of the Black Pearl was Disney's first PG-13 movie, would scare off young people. Besides that, he believed that teens would not like a version of the silly ride at Disneyland. Author James B. Stewart says that the budget was also a problem because Eisner wouldn't give the team the big budget they needed to make a movie that would compete. The Country Bears Movie, another Disney park adaptation that came out in 2002, bombed at the box office. Eisner almost stopped production again, but Verbisnki and his team talked him out of it.

Something else that was a big problem was how Depp played Captain Jack Sparrow. Hugh Jackman was first considered for the lead part, and the idea for the character was a pretty standard cool pirate. He thought that because pirates were like rock stars in their time, giving the part more of a psychedelic edge would make it more relatable to modern audiences. Depp would play Errol Flynn as Keith Richards. The studio wasn't pleased or even sure what to think of Depp's performance at first. They kept going with it anyway, and Verbinski was given $140 million to work with. But money doesn't fix everything, and this was just the start of a rough ride.

It was hard to film "The Curse of the Black Pearl" because of motion sickness and a tight schedule.

People who know a lot about making movies could tell that making a pirate movie would be hard because some of it had to be shot out at sea. Whether they're building a set on the ocean for Waterworld or using a controlled body of water for The Abyss, shooting in water is usually a bad time for the cast and team. At best, they have to deal with a lot of problems, and at worst, they get hurt. Most people like the ocean, but they shouldn't be near it for a long time, and expensive film tools shouldn't be there either. Also, the team only had five months to make the movie on location in St. Vincent, which is an island in the Caribbean. Keira Knightley was only 17 years old when the movie was shot, which added to the problems. This meant that her mother had to be at every shoot, and greasy pirates twice her age had to flirt with the young actor. Johny Depp says in the movie's audio introduction that this made him feel 100 years old.

The DVD audio commentary and the behind-the-scenes documentary An Epic At Sea: The Making of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl both have different stories from the shoot. There's a short commentary by Knightley and Davenport and a full commentary by Verbinski and Depp. What they have to say about the time they spent shooting is very interesting. In September 2002, for example, a fire broke out on one of the sets before the main filming even started. It caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, but luckily no one was hurt.

Keira Knightley got stuck on a reef while filming the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie.

But when they got to filming "The Curse of the Black Pearl," the ocean was the most difficult boss. People who lived on the islands knew that filming at night on the reef was not a good idea. Keira Knightley and her mother got stuck on a reef and had to wait for help for almost an hour. On set, people got very seasick, and the medicine that was supposed to help them fell asleep very quickly, which made it very hard to work. Still, they didn't give up, and they started shooting at night on a set that was closed off.

The movie had a very tight shooting schedule, so the crew had to keep shooting all the time to stay on track. This led to a lot of mistakes that no one seemed to notice, like crew members being visible in the frame. The final cut was finished four months before the launch, and Gore Verbinski is said to have worked 18-hour days to make the edit. It was a tough test of filming, but it paid off in the end. The movie came out on time, didn't hurt anyone badly, and was a huge hit.

The hard work that went into making the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie made both the movie and the people who worked on it better. Everyone on the team worked together to make something truly amazing, even though they were always afraid that Michael Eisner would kill the idea. There were times when this writer wondered if the crazy production story was worth it for the end result. But in the case of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, there's no doubt that it was. Will the new version be able to bring back that magic? Time will tell. It was a real treasure of a movie, though, thanks to Verbinski, the cast, and the team who worked hard and took every risk.


You'll be wondering right up to the very end in Netflix's daring new murder mystery

The fact that Netflix is dedicated to making foreign feature films accessible to people all around the world is one of the company's most admirable qualities. It is called Colors of Evil: Red, and it is the most recent hidden treasure that the streamer has discovered. It comes from Poland. The film, which is a crisp psychological whodunit, is based on the novel written by Małgorzata Oliwia Sobczak. It provides two solid hours of twists and turns, culminating in a climax that is both unexpected and rewarding. A film directed by Adrian Panek is a picture that is both snappy and well-acted. It showcases some of Poland's top performers, such as Maja Ostaszewska, Jakub Gierszał, and Zofie Jastrzębska, who portray Monika, a young lady who is both gorgeous and free-spirited. Her murder leaves a multitude of prospective perpetrators. When you finally get to the point when Colors of Evil: Red throws you a final curveball, you will feel as though you have been on an emotional rollercoaster journey that is packed with carefully created red herrings.

'Colors of Evil: Red': What Does It Really Mean?

Her mother, Helena (Ostaszewska), is a Polish judge in the Tricity area, and her daughter, Monika Bogucka, is also very active and full of life. Despite the fact that she hails from a stable and law-abiding household, she is resolute in her intention to go out on her own and establish herself in the world by doing what she wants. When she is offered a position as a bartender at a nightclub in the neighborhood, she knows that she is moving in the right path. By the time she starts dating her physically abusive boss, Waldemar Mila (played by Wojciech Zielinski), she also draws the attention of the club's owner, Lucasz "Kazar" Kazarski (played by Przemysław Bluszcz), who is a violent criminal lord. As soon as Maria washes up on a Polish beach naked and with her face down, there is no shortage of those who are suspected of being responsible for her death. Inspector Leopold Bilski, played by Gierszal, will have to work his way through a long list of her numerous lovers in order to discover who perpetrated the horrific act and stole her lips as a memento. Additionally, in order to deal with the shock and grief she is experiencing as a result of her daughter's sudden death, Monika's mother, Helena, becomes involved in the inquiry. While this is going on, she is also having an affair with the medical examiner Tadieusz Dubiela, played by Andrzej Konopka. Tadieusz Dubiela is the one who has a filthy little family secret that will be essential in solving the riddle of Monika was murdered.

Adrian Panek's 'Color of Evil: Red' features a bleak setting that contributes to the suspenseful atmosphere.

In order to establish the whodunit component of Colors of Evil: Red, Panek uses the new source material and skillfully offers the spectator with at least five probable suspects. However, in addition to that, he makes use of the gloomy and desolate Polish city backdrop as a character in and of itself in order to contribute to the macabre atmosphere prevalent throughout the picture. It is important to note that this is not a lighthearted or lighthearted psychological thriller; rather, it is a riveting murder mystery that is interwoven throughout the story. Before ramping up the emotions through the urgency of a devastated mother and a determined Inspector who leads the audience down a winding and suspenseful road to find the person responsible for such a heinous murder of a young, innocent woman, Panek suffocates the viewer with an overarching sense of hopelessness and despair. Panek gives the viewer a sense of hopelessness and despair.

The movie "Colors of Evil: Red" also takes inspiration from a number of well-known directors of psychological thrillers.

When the body of Monika is rolled over by the detectives at the murder scene, the shot of her face is a raw and viscerally horrifying moment in the movie. She is not only bloated and purple, but her eyes are a milky white color, and her lips have been severed from her face, leaving her teeth and gums exposed. Her eyes are also a milky white color. This particularly horrifying moment is quite evocative of some of the noirish body horror that we have seen from master directors like as David Fincher in Seven (notably the stirring scene of "Gluttony"), and it is very similar to the way that this particular moment was handled. That is a lofty accolade that does not come lightly, but Panek certainly delivers shots that are similarly tight and gut-wrenching.

Furthermore, the broad perspectives and angles that he employs are evocative of the harsh right angles and linear approaches that Michael Mann utilized in films such as Heat and the film adaptation of Manhunter. Several of the sequences involving heavily armed police officers will also bring to mind the film Heat. There is a trace of M. Night Shyamalan in the way that he used his backdrops to become another mystery character in movies like The Village and Unbreakable. The muted and dismal ambient ambiance is also particularly reminiscent of Mann. There is a possibility that the film's twisting conclusion is not on par with that of The Sixth Sense, but what is? This is the illustrious company that Panek is endeavouring to replicate, and despite the fact that Colors of Evil: Red may have a considerable distance to traverse, it still possesses outstanding pieces and wonderful storytelling.

In the role of a distraught mother who is looking for answers, Maja Ostaszewska shines.

This Polish suspense novel stands out for a number of characteristics. First and foremost, it does an excellent job at constructing a gripping whodunit with its unsettling narrative. But out of all the characters in Colors of Evil: Red, Maja Ostaszewska's portrayal of Helena, a mother who is emotionally wounded, stands out as the one that stands out as the most memorable. As a profoundly devastated parent going through the inner anguish of losing her only kid, she is so believable from the minute she has to identify her daughter at the morgue, which is a moment that breaks her heart. One of the most heartbreaking moments in the movie is when she makes an attempt to end her life by taking her own life by walking into the turbulent waters of the ocean. Roman, her husband, played by Andrzej Zielinski, comes to her rescue, but the torment that she is experiencing on the inside is so evident that it is impossible to take your eyes off of her when she is on screen.

Helena's reaction during the final reveal is just the proper amount of sadness and incredulity, which emphasizes the solid twist ending. When she finds out that she has been closer to the killer and his accomplice than she ever thought, she is shocked and disbelieving. Ostaszwska gives an impressive anchor to the cast, which is both brilliant and intriguing. Because of the physical correctness of the set pieces and actors, Colors of Evil: Red is an international picture that would still be simple to follow without subtitles. However, it is unquestionably better with the assistance of the captions rather than without them.


Which slasher film has the highest-grossing box office total of all time?

Within the realm of horror, where things like chainsaws, knives for fingers, and iconic masks are commonplace, there is one psychopath killer who dominates the box office more than any of the others. Aspiring slasher fans might anticipate that it will be a classic, and while it is, it is not necessarily a classic in the way that you might anticipate. The slasher film that has made the most money is Halloween, more especially the version that was released in 2018 and directed by David Gordon Green. The fact that this reboot of the brand received a lot of interest from fans may come as a surprise to some people, especially when one considers how much love is showered upon the classics.

The 2018 film "Halloween" breaks the record for the highest grossing slasher film of all time.

One of the primary themes of the 2018 Halloween is to carry on the narrative that was established in the 1978 original Halloween. After Rob Zombie grabbed control of the brand with his Halloween films from 2002 and 2009, the series slipped into a period of silence since then. Perhaps it was because of the drastic shift away from Laurie and Michael's mythos, or perhaps it was simply that fans did not like the increase in the amount of violence that was shown in the Zombie flicks. Regardless of the circumstances, the internet and the horror community were ecstatic when it was revealed that Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to her role as Laurie Strode. There was considerable misunderstanding regarding the manner in which Curtis would return since it looked that her character had passed away in Halloween: Resurrection. However, as was indicated earlier, Green's version of Halloween takes place in a separate chronology and only concerns itself with the events that occurred after the 1978 Halloween. These are the timelines for the series, which you should check out if you are puzzled about them.

The event that takes place on Halloween takes place forty years after Laurie had survived a terrifying attack by Michael Myers in her picturesque village of Haddonfield, Illinois. Myers has been incarcerated in a mental institution, but in a manner that is reminiscent of the boogeyman, he discovers a means to escape and bring himself back to Haddonfield. While he is there, he is looking for blood and to find Laurie, the one who managed to escape. Laurie, unbeknownst to him, is prepared to confront him in a Terminator-like manner! For the entirety of her existence, she has been preparing herself and her daughter for the potential that dad could return at some point in the future. She has transformed her house into a bunker for the end of the world, complete with explosives, booby traps, and concealed weaponry. Her daughter and granddaughter are unable to comprehend the situation; yet, when they learn that Michael has returned, they express their appreciation for Laurie's extraordinary actions in preparation.

How much money did the movie "Halloween" make at the box office around the world in 2018?

A staggering $259 million has been raked in at the box office throughout the world by the 2018 film Halloween. With a whopping $86 million lead over the picture that came in second place, Scream (1996), this makes it the highest-grossing slasher film of all time. In point of fact, the Scream franchise is responsible for a sizeable portion of the top ten highest-grossing slashers franchises of all time. We came in second with the original, followed by Scream 2 in third place, Scream 3 in fourth place, and Scream VI in fifth place. Despite the fact that that franchise is extremely popular, Halloween demonstrates that horror fans have a strong affinity for the bogeyman and Laurie Strode, the ultimate last girl. When we include the entirety of the Halloween franchise, we find that Halloween Kills, which has grossed a total of $133 million, is the second highest-grossing picture in the franchise. The film Halloween 5: Revenge of Michael Myers, which grossed $11 million worldwide, was the installment in the series that performed the worst at the box office as a whole.

'Halloween' (2018): How Much Did It Cost To Make The Movie?

Beginning with a budget of $10 million, the budget for Halloween (2018) was far more than the budget for the original Halloween, which was only $325,000. In spite of the fact that inflation makes the difference appear to be fairly substantial, Green's version of Halloween was actually less expensive to produce than Rob Zombie's version, which had a budget of fifteen million dollars. When compared to the amount of money that was made from the picture, the budget for the movie appears to be rather low. Blumhouse was able to proceed with the production of two additional sequels in this timeline, which were titled Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. This was due to the fact that the reboot was exceptionally successful. Fans have hypothesized that a new chronology could be created for the franchise, despite the fact that Green's timeline of the game would come to an end after Halloween Ends. Given that the boogeyman never passes away, are we supposed to assume that the fact that Halloween is over indicates that there is a conclusion?

There has been a notable increase in the number of people participating in the horror franchise.

The return of horror in recent years is a contributing factor to the success of Halloween. Due to the resurgence in popularity, a great number of well-known properties have been brought back to the big screen. Some franchises, like as The Exorcist, have had a difficult time finding fresh ground, in contrast to the Scream franchise, which has been welcomed with success. Despite the fact that these cherished properties are making a comeback, fans of the genre are still flocking in large numbers to voice their support for the new ventures. Immaculate, The First Omen, and Late Night the Devil are just a few examples of films that have left spectators feeling incredibly astonished. It is possible that many of these are not considered to be slashers, despite the fact that they are all classified as horror films. It is possible to experience a resurgence of interest in the slasher subgenre as the horror genre continues to gain prominence. When all is said and done, who doesn't enjoy a good jump scary?

A classic is always a classic, and it is never a bad idea for horror lovers to begin revisiting all thirteen films in the Halloween franchise! This is true even when there are new entrants in the genre. Prime Video allows you to stream virtually all of the films in the franchise, so if you want to view any of the films in the series, you may do so. Just make sure that you don't become so preoccupied with observing them that you fail to notice the shape that is hiding along your clothesline...

The film Halloween is currently available for purchase or rental on Prime Video in the United States.


Your Only Keanu Reeves Movie to Cross $1 Billion at the Box Office Will Surprise You

It’s rare for an actor to maintain popularity and longevity in Hollywood, and yet, Keanu Reeves has been a box office darling for over three decades. From Ted in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure to shooting his way through Paris as John Wick in John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves is one of the few movie stars left to bring audiences to the theaters. With so many iconic roles in the expanse of his filmography, such as Neo in The Matrix movies, it would be safe to assume that one of Reeves’ franchise movies has crossed over into the $1 billion box office club. Surprisingly, a franchise movie that Reeves was involved with has passed $1 billion, but it’s not one where Reeves stars as an assassin or an officer of the law. Instead, his sole entry to the $1 billion box office club is a movie where he voices an animated stuntman – Toy Story 4.

Duke Caboom Showcases Keanu Reeves’ Voice Acting Range
Reeves is one of the new cast members who jumped into the fourth installment of this beloved Pixar franchise as one of the new toys Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) encounter while on a road trip with their new owner, Bonnie (Madeleine McGraw). While his character doesn’t bring the same jokes per minute as Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele do as Ducky and Bunny, respectively, Reeves succeeds in making his mark in a franchise filled with memorable toys as Canadian stuntperson, Duke Caboom.

Based on a fictionalized version of Evel Knievel, Duke Caboom is one of the new toys Woody meets in his efforts to rescue Forky (Tony Hale) from Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks). Canada’s greatest stuntman is a friend and ally of Bo Peep (Annie Potts), who’s still living in the antique shop where Forky is held captive. Based on the rapport between Duke and Bo, it’s certainly suggested that the two may have had a romantic past, similar to that of Bo and Woody; for example, he refers to Bo’s sheep as his girls. Thanks to Keanu Reeves’ line delivery, Duke’s charm is enough for Woody to feel a little threatened by the posing stuntman.

Speaking of posing, Duke Caboom is a standout side character despite having less than ten minutes of screen time. When Duke rides on his motorcycle, he carries with him the bravado and confidence of a celebrity. After being introduced to Woody, Duke wastes no time showing off his athleticism by hopping through poses. Shortly after, when he initially refuses to help Bo and Woody, Duke punctuates his refusal by posing again, practically acting like a toddler without a temper tantrum. Like a child, Duke has a naivety, shown earlier in that scene when Bo describes Woody’s unwise actions of trying to get Forky undetected. Reeves’ delivery in conjunction with the animation transforms a small moment like this into comedy gold.

It’s not just humor that Keanu Reeves brings to Duke Caboom. When he learns that Woody still has a kid, it triggers Duke’s trauma of how he became a lost toy. It turns out that Duke Caboom was a Boxing Day gift to a Canadian kid, Rejean, but after Rejean realized that he couldn’t jump as far as the toy was advertised in a commercial, Duke became a lost toy and second-hand news. Recalling this memory makes him break down in tears, which is simultaneously humorous. It’s that mix of humor and gravitas that Reeves can expertly jump back and forth from thanks to years of perfecting that skill. Eventually, Duke does pull through for Woody and Bo after he jumps and crashes twice. The Canadian stuntman defies the odds to help Woody get to Forky, as well as later at the carnival when he helps Woody, Bo, Gabby Gabby, Bunny, and Ducky find Bonnie. He later permanently joins Woody and Bo’s crew to find homes for fellow lost toys.

'Toy Story 4' Triumphs Because of Pixar's Track Record of Quality Storytelling

Despite the memorable role Keanu Reeves brought to Toy Story 4, he was not the sole reason why Toy Story 4 would go on to cross $1 billion at the box office. Granted, additions such as him, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jordan Peele, certainly helped keep the comedy going in a movie targeted at kids. Toy Story 4 is part of a long-running franchise that has been critically and commercially praised. Toy Story was the first feature film by Pixar Studios; coincidentally, the year Toy Story was released was the year Reeves starred as Jack Traven in Speed alongside Sandra Bullock. Toy Story 2 is largely considered one of the best sequels ever made because of how it elevates the themes and the stakes of a computer-animated movie about toys. Toy Story 3 marks the end of an era of growing up with Andy (John Morris) as he goes off to college, but the beginning of a new chapter with Bonnie. The previous three Toy Story movies are excellent in their own right, thus having a lot of goodwill going into the fourth installment, which later translated into the 2019 box office.

In addition to being the fourth installment of an animated dynasty, Toy Story 4 matches the quality of the previous Toy Story movies. Not only is it an entertaining movie for both kids and adults alike, Toy Story 4 continues to carry emotional depth through exploring themes of purpose, change, and worth. Despite Buzz, Jessie (Joan Cusack), and the rest of the toys smoothly transitioning into Bonnie’s toy ecosystem, Woody struggles to find a new purpose in a post-Andy life. He puts all of his focus on Forky to be of value to Bonnie. Since Woody turned down Stinky Pete (Kelsey Grammer) in Toy Story 2, Woody has never strayed from his loyalty to being a kid’s toy. It’s not until he reunites with Bo Peep that his worldview is challenged and broadened. Toy Story 4 is a celebration of where Woody and the gang have been throughout the years, as much as it is a goodbye for Woody and the life he’s always known.

When it was released in 2019, Toy Story 4 defied the skeptics to prove there was more story left to tell after Toy Story 3. Its critical and commercial success paved the way for Toy Story 5 to be greenlit. Thanks to exceptional storytelling through its themes, as well as introducing memorable new characters like Duke Caboom, Toy Story 4 easily topped its predecessor as the highest-grossing Toy Story movie. As we wait for Keanu Reeves to return to the $1 billion box office again, he can be proud that his involvement in a movie of this caliber made this level of impact at the box office.

Toy Story 4 is available to stream on Disney+ in the U.S.
