Our Favorite Part of Love Island Might Just Be Announcer Matthew Hoffman

  • Popsugar
Solid narration can make a great series that much better (see: Jane the Virgin), a fact that the creators of Love Island - CBS's newest, and most scandalous, Summer show - are well aware of. Following in the footsteps of Love Island UK announcer Iain Stirling (whose Scottish accent and good-humored jabs at the reality show's contestants often leave viewers in stitches), television host Matthew Hoffman is serving as the self-proclaimed "Voice of Love Island" this Summer - and half of the internet is already wishing Hoffman could narrate their own lives. Before we invite his charming commentary into our own romantic entanglements, though, we should probably get to know Hoffman a bit better: who is Matthew Hoffman, really? Let's find out.

He's No Stranger to the Stars

The ever-charming host of Regal Cinema's Sit Down With the Stars, Hoffman's interviewed every celebrity under the sun, from Emily Blunt to Denzel Washington.

The sequel to A Quiet Place is shaping up.

Christopher McQuarrie Says the Worst Scene in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Was the Studio’s Idea

Christopher McQuarrie Says the Worst Scene in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Was the Studio’s Idea
One of the best directors on social media is hands down Christopher McQuarrie. The “Mission: Impossible — Fallout” filmmaker often uses Twitter to share screenwriting tips, provide director’s commentary to his films or movies he’s watching, and offer up his honest thoughts on the industry. A recent McQuarrie Twitter thread found the director musing on logic and explanations in films with otherworldly elements.

“‘Ghostbusters’ understands that logic is overrated,” McQuarrie wrote. “They knew exactly what needed explaining and what didn’t. Most importantly, the protagonists are just trying to make a living. They only become traditional heroes in the final act.”

McQuarrie had hoped to be just as limited on explanations when it came to his 2014 science-fiction action movie “Edge of Tomorrow,” starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. McQuarrie adapted Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s Japanese novel “All You Need Is Kill” for the Doug Liman-directed movie. The writer shared

Dark Phoenix To End Box Office Run As Bigger Bomb Than Fantastic Four

The signs weren’t good beforehand and, sure enough, Dark Phoenix didn’t send off Fox’s X-Men franchise on a high. Reviews tore it to shreds and its box office gross was disappointing, with the movie earning the lowest-opening weekend of any X-film ever. As its cinematic run winds down, however, it’s looking very likely that Dark Phoenix will be the biggest flop of the whole franchise and an even bigger dud than Fantastic Four.

Let’s look at the evidence, shall we? Dp is currently showing in 426 domestic theaters, with its overseas showings also drying up. In fact, it was being pulled from cinemas just a couple of weeks after its release due to its box office failure. With opportunities running low, it seems a safe bet that Dark Phoenix will end up making around $250 million, according to Forbes.

Karlovy Vary Review: Casey Affleck’s Narrative Directorial Debut ‘Light of My Life’ Finds Tenderness in Dystopia

The new film from Casey Affleck arrives at the tail end of a smattering of telling coincidences and sliding door moments. In February 2017, he won an Academy Award playing the lead in Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, a film that was originally intended to be the directorial debut of one John Krasinski. That actor would eventually release his next directorial effort A Quiet Place in spring of 2018, a few weeks after Debra Granik’s somewhat similar albeit sci-fi-free Leave No Trace had premiered in Sundance. A survivalist, eco-sensitive, sci-fi/horror hybrid that Krasinski wrote, directed, and starred in, it did gangbusters while Granik’s film was warmly embraced by critics and audiences. And now we have Light of My Life, a survivalist, eco-sensitive sci-fi/horror hybrid that is written by, directed by, and starring Casey Affleck.

Lucasfilm Eyeing Emily Blunt To Play Mara Jade In Upcoming Star Wars Movie

The Star Wars Sequel Trilogy has so far given us a drastically different post-Return of the Jedi world from the one seen in the Expanded Universe fiction, which is now known as Star Wars Legends. Still, many fans remain hopeful that a few of their favorite non-canonical characters will one day appear in live-action, and it seems Lucasfilm does indeed plan on bringing some of the more well known figures from the EU to theaters.

Sources close to We Got This Covered have told us that now that characters like Luke, Leia, Han, etc., are all gone from the franchise or are on their way out, and the Sequel Trilogy is about to wrap up, the studio’s looking to the Expanded Universe for ideas on where to go next, and one person that they’re eager to adapt to live-action is none other than Mara Jade.
