Exploring Oil Options in the Gulf of Mexico: Tim Duncan’s Talos Energy Big Pay Off

Tim Duncan is determined to explore oil options in the Gulf of Mexico. In recent months discoveries of oil and gas in the Mexican side of the gulf have triggered a “feeding frenzy” to succor drilling rights. Duncan understands that there is a risk involved but with his recent acquisition of Stone Energy he feels that it is an acceptable risk.

The merger of Talos Energy with Stone Energy does give Duncan leverage he didn’t have before. The combination of the public entity and Duncan’s private entity with both companies providing similar services was the catalyst for the merger. Duncan understands that the risky Mexican waters provide some unique challenges. It was the realization of these challenges that drove him to consider combining forces with Stone Energy.

Duncan was challenged to get the deal done so he can gain leverage on new oil and gas fields in Mexican waters. The opportunities to obtain drilling rights and utilize the newer technology was hard to resist. Duncan does thrive on challenges. In the past, Duncan was instrumental in obtaining the Phoenix field and rehabilitating it after Hurricane Rita destroyed it. Phoenix field now produces 16,000 barrels a day with the expectation of producing more.

The acquisition of Stone Energy’s assets provides Talos Energy with new resources such as the Pompano platform. These existing platforms allow Talos Energy to explore the area and make new discoveries.

Duncan’s experience in the oil and gas industry spans twenty years. He worked for Zilkha Energy as an engineer in 1996. It was while he was working at Zilkha Energy that he learned the most about geology and the new developments in the industry. Duncan pursued this interest and helped launch Gryphon Exploration in 2000. The discoveries he made there encouraged him to continue his passion. It led him to cofound Phoenix Exploration in 2006.

Exploring new oil and gas fields is in Duncan’s blood. Talos Energy is poised to uncover many oil fields with untapped resources. The lesson learned from the BP disaster won’t be repeated and Duncan’s hope is for a rebound for deepwater explorers.

Actor Who Played Colossus Wants Colossus to Fight Thanos

Stefan Kapicic, the star who plays as Colossus in the Deadpool movies was asked who he wanted to see Colossus fight next after fighting the Juggernaut. He has answered that he would love to see Colossus take on Thanos. This is an interesting statement because X-Men and Avengers are both Marvel characters. However, there are hurdles to seeing this happen. For one thing, Fox has the movie rights to these characters. The only way that this can be a possibility is when the deal is finalized between Fox and Disney. However, this is not expected for a while.

Another thing that is interesting is that there is a link between Deadpool and Avengers. This link is actor Josh Brolin who plays Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool. This link has enabled Deadpool to make the joke calling Cable Thanos. Another interesting thing that Deadpool and Avengers share is that both recent releases have been praised by audiences and critics. While Deadpool is not making nearly as much as Avengers partially because of the rating, they both have high levels of praises. Some of the early reviews have stated that Deadpool 2 was even better than Infinity War.

As of right now, there are talks about a Deadpool 3 and an X-Force movie. Also, depending on how the deal goes with Disney and Fox, the characters might start appearing in the MCU. The only thing is how it would work if this does happen. Disney and Fox would be a big thing for the MCU.

Australian Aboriginal Culture Touted in New Netflix Film

This month, Netflix released Cargo, an original film invoking themes of zombies and a global apocalypse. Set in the deserts of Western Australia it stars Martin Freeman, Susie Porter and Simone Landers. The dark film offers vivid cinematography and an original spin on the conventional horror pandemic motif.

The movie opened to largely positive reviews, including a favorable write up on the Screenrant.com website. One distinctive element in the production involves the decision to portray the traditional intuitive Aboriginal culture in Australia as furnishing a survival advantage during the downfall of a doomed consumerist society. A strikingly high percentage of Aborigines don’t contract the ravaging illness which decimates other people in the movie.

A Film Debut

Actress Simone Landers portrays Thoomi in the film. The teen avoids the contamination of a grim zombie-causing pandemic. She crosses paths with Andy, a father desperate to promote the survival of his young daughter. Together they face a challenging trek through a world transformed by a deadly and devastating plague. The film casts talented Simone Landers in her first professional acting role.

A Star With Extensive Credits

Martin Freeman who plays Andy in Cargo by contrast possesses a lengthy series of acting credits. Many viewers in the United States may remember his guest appearance as the devious Lester Nygaard in the 2014 season of Fargo. His roles include portraying Dr. Watson in the British-based Sherlock television series. He has starred in numerous movies (including appearing in recurring roles in The Hobbit franchise based on the J. R. R. Tolkein fantasy novels and as intrepid Iain MacKelpie in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot(2016)). The character of Andy in Cargo perseveres with determination despite overwhelming odds against his child’s survival.

Andrew Lincoln Exits The Walking Dead

Fans of the AMC zombie series The Walking Dead will be shocked to hear that series star Andrew Lincoln has announced that he will no be part of the horror series following the show’s upcoming ninth season. Lincoln is only expected to appear in six episodes next season. The actor has been playing Rick Grimes, an ex-cop turned leader in a post-apocalypse America, since the show’s first season in 2010. While Lincoln has not said why he wants to quit the zombie series, speculation rests on the actor wanting to spend more time with his family. The Walking Dead films in Georgia while Lincoln’s family lives in the United Kingdom. Lincoln has also stated that he feels that Rick’s story arc is coming to an end, and he wants to see the character’s journey come to completion.

Lincoln is not the only actor who has been with the show for a long time to exit the series recently. Last season, Chandler Riggs, who plays Rick’s son Carl on the show, left after his character suffered a bite from a walker. Like Lincoln, Riggs had been with the show since it began in 2010. Additionally, it was recently announced that Lauren Cohan, who has played Maggie since the show’s second season, would also only appear in six episodes of the coming season.

While fans worry that Lincoln and Cohan’s exits will lead to the show’s end, AMC plans to continue the series despite the exit of two of its biggest stars. Part of the network’s plan to keep audiences interested in the series is to offer actor Norman Reedus, who has played Daryl Dixon on the show since season one, a larger paycheck to stay with the series. Rumors are that the show’s writers hope for Reedus to assume Lincoln’s position as leading actor on the series.

The Darker Side of Muppets Explored With Happytime Murders

When people think about muppets, they think about the characters that they have seen in shows like Sesame Street. However, there is a new movie coming out that is based on the concept of muppets. This is called Happytime Murders. This is a violent film filled with foul language and adult themes. One scene in the trailer shows a muppet getting blown away. This shows that the film is going to involve murder and other acts not expected in a show about muppets.

Melissa McCarthy has a lead role in Happytime Murders. The overall feel of the film is reminiscent of The Heat. In this movie, Melissa McCarthy plays the role of a detective who has to solve the case of the murders of the Happytime Gang cast. This seems pretty straight-forward. The trailers show enough footage for people to make an assessment of the kind of movie they expect to get. This could be reminiscent of some of the action comedies of an earlier era.

One thing that people make comparisons to is Who Framed Roger Rabbit. However, this film puts muppets in the place of the cartoon characters. This is also not the first time that human actors have interacted with muppets on the big screen. There are plenty of films that feature some of the muppets and characters similar to muppets. Either way, this could go one of two ways. This can actually be a good film, or this can turn out to be a mediocre movie going experience.

Adam Milstein and anti-Semitism

Adam Milstein holds positions in other organizations most of them to do with philanthropy, to get. He is also a partner in the management of Hager pacific properties. He is a graduate of the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s Of Science Degree in Business and Economics in 1978 and later in 1981 he got an MBA from USC (University of Southern California). Adam Milstein has also served in the IDF during the Yom Kippur War that was back in 1973. He is also Chairman of the Board of the Council of Israeli-American, of which he is a co-founder.

Other than, his charity work, which largely focuses on the growth of the Jewish People as well the State of Israel. Adam and his wife are co-finders of a foundation that sponsors the education of not only students but also young professionals who wish to connect to their Jewish roots, those who want to identify with the State of Israel and provide an information hub of facts about the Israel state and the Jewish people. In 2016, Algemeiner named Milstein its Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life.

Recently Adam Milstein opened up, about the growing anti-Semitism that has long been associated with the radical right but has now begun increasing on the left as well, and it is a well-known fact that radical Muslim movements also incite their followers with vicious anti-Semitism. In the world that is becoming increasingly connected, these three groups are now exchanging ideas, tactics and even sharing their views online. This created a surging wave of hate, bigotry, and racism that has opened the gates to radicalization.

From his words to his work, and the partnerships he gets involved in, it becomes clear that Adam Milstein holds a deep spiritual and emotional connection to his Israeli Homeland. He believes that identifying with their Israeliness opens a world that many young American Jews conditioned to think that Jewish ties are centered around the synagogue, have never thought of before.

Though Milstein plans to continue working on behalf of Israel, he also has opinions that are less than famous especially among who have lived in Israel all their lives.

Michael B. Jordan and Donald Glover Rumored for Black Panther 2

Given the success of Black Panther (and Avengers: Infinity War). There has been talk about the eventual sequel to the film. Among the rumors that are floating around is the casting of Donald Glover and Michael B. Jordan. While it is understandable why Ryan Coogler would cast Donald Glover, Michael B. Jordan would be an interesting choice for the sequel because his character, Killmonger has died in the first film. In Donald Glover’s case, he is not that much of a stranger to the MCU. He has appeared in Spider-Man Homecoming and made some contributions to the Black Panther film.

The rumors of Michael B. Jordan being included in the cast for Black Panther 2 brings about a lot of theories. One thing is that it takes away from the already debunked idea that Black Panther 2 would take place before the events of Infinity War. Another thing that this idea brings about is curiosity of what exactly might happen in the events of Avengers 4. One thing that has been suggested is that the events of Avengers 4 will lead to a new timeline. So it is likely that some of the events of Avengers 4 might lead to the resurrection of Killmonger among some other characters.

One thing that is important to understand is that this is currently a rumor. Nothing has been confirmed. At most, the creative team behind Black Panther 2 is considering the possibility of bringing in certain characters and bringing back others. Nothing has been finalized.

Jamie Foxx Casted in Starring Role For Spawn Reboot

The Spawn Reboot is taking a lot of steps forward. The most recent announcement related to the upcoming reboot is that Jamie Foxx has been confirmed for the starring role. Given the direction that Todd Mcfarlane is taking with this film, this might be very faithful to the comic book. Todd has reportedly said that he does not want to make the typical hero film. As a matter of fact, he is hoping to take the horror film approach with Spawn. Therefore, Spawn is going to be treated like the antagonist in his film as opposed to the protagonist. They are also going to back away from the backstory approach.

This is going to be a fresh approach to the comic book movie and comic book films in general. For one thing, comic book films have always started off with the backstory or has gone into the backstory. This film is going to deal with the actions of Spawn from the perspective of other characters. Todd McFarlane is going to put together a supernatural thriller with elements of mystery and horror. Todd has stated that if this film is successful, then there are going to be sequels that go into the backstory.

Jamie Foxx is going to take on the role that was first played by Michael Jai White back in 1997. Todd has stated that Jamie has the range to pull off the role of Al Simmons, the ex-CIA officer who has made a deal with the devil after he was killed.
