Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
Discover Donna's (Meryl Streep, Lily
James) young life, experiencing the fun she had
with the three possible dads of Sophie (Amanda
Seyfriend). Sophie is now pregnant. Like Donna,
she'll be a young mother, and she realizes that she'll
need to take risks like her mother did. A follow-up to
the 2008 film Mamma Mia!, which is based on the musical
of the same name. The film also stars Christine
Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce
Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan
Skarsgård, Dominic Cooper and
Cher. Both a prequel and a sequel, the plot is set
after the events of the first film but also features
flashbacks to 1979 to tell the story of how Donna came
to be on the island of Kalokairi and trying to figure
out who fathered her daughter, Sophie.
Dwayne Johnson stars as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who keeps
people at a distance but shares an unshakable bond with George, the
extraordinarily intelligent, incredibly rare albino silverback gorilla who has
been in his care since he rescued the young orphan from poachers. But a rogue
genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of
enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other
similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across
North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with discredited
geneticist Kate Caldwell (Naomie Harris) to secure an antidote,
fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global
catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
