Who doesn’t love drama? If it includes sports, well, that’s a cherry on top! And if the star of the movie is Adam Sandler, we want nothing else. On June 8, 2022, Netflix premiered Adam Sandler starred Hustle. His love for basketball is truly visible in his acting. In the movie, Adam stars as Stanley Beren, who travels from one country to another and is an international scout for the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA.

The most interesting part of the movie is not only the story or the characters. It is the locations that give life to the events. It makes everything real and alive. Here’s all you need to know about the locations.

All the shooting locations for Hustle and NOT only Philly!

Real-life locations give a different touch to the movie and its story. Obviously, a majority of the locations would be in Philadelphia. Let us tell you about all the locations in Philly.

The director of the film, Jeremiah Zagar, along with the team, scouted locations in various areas of the city. That includes North Philly, Old City, Manayunk, South Philadelphia’s Italian Market, and Queen Village. “The way the city looks from its buildings, streets, and basketball courts,” Hustle’s co-producer Joseph Vecsey says, “you just really felt the realness there.”

Wells Fargo Center

3601 S. Broad St.

It is pretty obvious that an NBA scout for the 76ers spends plenty of his time at the team’s home stadium. Moreover, all the scenes in the film were indeed shot here at this place only.

Old Pine Church

412 Pine St.

At the beginning of the film, when Stanley comes home after a long work patch, he connects with his daughter, Alex, by playing the role of the cool parent. Even though she hasn’t completed her homework, he allows her to go to a screening of a movie at a cemetery. Stanley drops Alex off to meet her friends at Old Pine Church. It is a Presbyterian house of worship built in 1768 that is surrounded by a historic colonial-era churchyard.

The direction in each symbolic location is fantastic.

After Stan gets the news of the death of his friend and mentor, 76ers owner, Rex Merrick, he attends a wake at this place, which is a real Philadelphia chophouse. The restaurant’s luxe interior is fully put on display as Stan really connects with old friends and other teammates here.

Melrose Diner

1501-1527 Snyder Ave.

This classic Philly diner is a food-filled montage, where Stan is having a conversation with his wife, Teresa, not long after NBA prospect Bo Cruz first arrives in Philly. The conversation itself was filmed inside Fante’s Kitchen Shop, which is a historic cookware store on Philly’s South Ninth Street.

Capitolo Playground

900 Federal St.

Bo plays the game in many playgrounds. But when he played and got filmed the game on this playground, it went viral.

Ray’s Happy Birthday Bar

1200 E. Passyunk Ave.

In the film, towards the end, Stan’s daughter, Alex, is preparing to watch a 76ers game at a bar called McGlinchey’s. In reality, Ray’s Happy Birthday Bar is the place where this scene was shot.

Girard College, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Manor College, Manayunk Wall, Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia, Tom Gola Arena — La Salle University, and Girard College are all the places where the movie has been shot.

Hustle only in Philly? No ways.

Other shoot locations were Pennsylvania, as well as New Jersey, and Spain.

Locations, in any movie, play a very crucial part. Because of a perfect location, the scene enhances its intensity and can convey the message effectively. The creators of Hustle have done a brilliant job choosing these symbolic locations. Let us know about your favorite part or location in the movie.

Martin Scorsese’s Classic Where Robert De Niro Took Over Al Pacino and Ray Liotta Refused Batman Makes Way to Netflix

#Martin #Scorseses #Classic #Robert #Niro #Pacino #Ray #Liotta #Refused #Batman #Netflix

Martin Scorsese is the master of his craft. No other filmmaker in the world comes even close to the filmography of the Academy award-winning director. His films have not only stood the test of time but somehow gotten better over time. And many of his great films are in collaboration with his dear friend Robert De Niro.

De Niro and Scorsese have given the world some of the most influential films ever. Their collaboration ranges from nine feature films and a short film. All of these nine films are classics. Luckily, one of the greatest among these nines is coming to Netflix.

Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese’s exemplary film coming to Netflix

The 1990s was an amazing year for cinema, and it was just elevated by the collaboration of De Niro and Martin. It was the faithful year of 1990 when the duo dropped one of the best gangster films of all time: Goodfellas.

There is no opening scene more iconic than the “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster” from Goodfellas. The film is a powerhouse of great performances, amazing dialogues, and amazing direction.

The film was certainly a dream project for the late actor Ray Liotta. Ray reportedly dropped out of Batman 1989 to be in the crime drama film. He was supposed to play Harvey Dent. Billy Dee Williams later picked up the role.

Where Ray dropped out of a project to be in the film, Al Pacino, on the other hand, rejected it, feeling it would stereotype him.

No matter how things turned out, the film was an absolute success and is one of the best films by Martin Scorsese.

And now Netflix is bringing Goodfellas to the screens once again.

When is Goodfellas coming to Netflix?

Subscribers of Netflix will be able to stream the movie from the first of July.

Goodfellas is actually an adaptation of the 1985 nonfiction book ‘Wiseguy’ by Pileggi.

Both the film and the book are based on the narrative of Henry Hill. Henry was a former Lucchese crime family associate, who became an FBI informant. The primary characters in the film were all based on real individuals Hill knew.

Fans Predict the Most Horrific Possibility for Joe Keery’s Steve in Stranger Things Season Volume and It All Comes Down to His Hair

#Netflix #Haunts #Joe #Keery #Fans #Protect #Steve #Billboard #Die #Season

Hawkins, a small town of untold stories, is about to reveal its biggest showdown tomorrow on Netflix. Speculations were rife for a while now that an important character will depart in volume 2. Fans have been imploring through tweets and comments that their favorite character might not die aka to protect Steve on the Netflix show, Stranger Things.

However, creators seem to have a different idea about deaths in Stranger Things. They said that the death of a main character is necessary for breaking the emotional grounds this season. Worsening the situation is Netflix’s post on Twitter that is scaring the hell out of fans. Is it an end to the Steve Harrington era? Or there is still hope left for our babysitter? Read on to get all the information if you wish to protect Joe Keery this season.

Clouds of danger are looming on Steve Harrington and Netflix asks fans to protect him

Official Netflix tweeted “AT ALL COSTS!!!” with a billboard image saying ‘Protect Steve,’ leaving people restless. The post has created an uproar on Twitter with fans concerned about Harrington’s fate. The heartbreaking poster is certainly indicating some catastrophe that might leave viewers all teary-eyed. Take a look at the devastating tweet pinned below:

Moreover, the billboard photo seems to depict that Steve will have some gruesome encounter in Upside Down. This is justifiably scaring fans, especially with even Netflix asking Steve to be saved. Steve’s transformation in season 1 from an imbecile to a teenager mom won people’s hearts. And now no one including the co-director Shawn Levy wants him to die.

Unfortunately, fans can only wait until the truth comes out, which will decide the destiny of this brilliant character. For as far as we know Steve’s death is planned by Duffer Brothers because he has become a fan favorite. Therefore, killing him in the deadly volume 2 will leave a deep impact on viewers’ minds. So, they will likely end season 4 with a grand culmination as Noah Schnapp hinted in his interviews.

However, as fans of King Steve, we still don’t want these speculations to be true.
