Next week, “The Flash,” a movie about the fast superhero played by Ezra Miller, will be available for streaming on Max. The movie will debut on Warner Bros. Discovery’s Max on Friday, August 25th. Ezra Miller plays the role of Barry Allen, and this is the first time the character has a movie just about him.
Even though “The Flash” had a big budget of around $200 million, it didn’t do well at the box office. It only made $108 million in the US and $160 million worldwide during the nine weeks it was in theaters. The movie’s second weekend in theaters was particularly bad, with a huge 73% drop in earnings.
The movie “The Flash” has received a rating of PG-13. Currently, the audience seems to like it, giving it an 83% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics, however, have given it a 64% score.
Here’s a brief summary of the movie’s plot: Barry, who has superpowers, goes back in time to change the past. Unfortunately, this leads to a different future where General Zod is back, and there are no Super Heroes around to help. To fix things, Barry needs to bring an older Batman out of retirement and save a captured Kryptonian, even though it’s not the one he initially intended to save. To save his world and return to his own time, Barry has to race against time itself. But will he have to make a big sacrifice to make everything right again?
In addition to Ezra Miller, the main cast of “The Flash” includes Sasha Calle, Michael Shannon, Ron Livingston, Maribel Verdú, Kiersey Clemons, Antje Traue, and Michael Keaton.
According to Variety, the movie “The Flash” is being made by a team of producers, including Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco. The person who wrote the screenplay is Christina Hodson, and the initial story idea came from John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, and Joby Harold. These creators used characters from DC comics as inspiration. The movie has important people overseeing it as well, like executive producers Toby Emmerich, Walter Hamada, Galen Vaisman, and Marianne Jenkins. This information is from Variety.
