Does Gran Turismo have a post-credits scene?

This week, moviegoers in select locations around the country have the opportunity to strap in for a video game movie that doubles as a sports bio pic: Gran Turismo. After eight years away from the big screen, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp made his cinematic return with the story of professional racer, Jann Mardenborough, a man who owes his career to the skills that he gained from playing the Gran Turismo video games. It wasn’t an instantaneous journey for Mardenborough, and the film dramatizes the journey that he embarked on in order to take the wheel on some of the most prestigious race tracks in the world.

Archie Madekwe stars in the film as Jann Mardenborough, with Stranger Things‘ David Harbour as Jack Salter, Orlando Bloom as Danny Moore, Darren Barnet as Matty Davis, Djimon Hounsou as Steve Mardenborough, Geri Halliwell as Lesley Mardenborough, Takehiro Hira as Kazunori Yamauchi, Josha Stradowski as Nicholas Capa, Daniel Puig as Cai Mardenborough, Maeve Courtier-Lilley as Audrey, Richard Cambridge as Felix, and Emelia Hartford as Leah Vega.

We aren’t going to spoil the ending of the film in this post. However, we will tell you whether Gran Turismo has a post-credits scene, and what you can expect when the credits roll.

No, Gran Turismo does not have a post-credits scene. Was anyone really expecting a CGI Mario to come along and challenge Jann Mardenborough to a race? Just imagine Chris Pratt’s voice saying “Want a real race? Let’s-a go!” If that’s what you wanted, then you’re going to be disappointed. Gran Turismo simply isn’t that kind of movie. It is a video game film, but it’s more rooted in reality.

But if you do stick around for the credits, what you’re going to see is a behind-the-scenes look at the real Jann Mardenborough alongside the actor who portrayed him, Archie Madekwe. The film notes that Mardenborough was also a stunt driver for his own character in the movie. Also, through a series of photographs, viewers get to see Mardenborough’s real parents, Steve and Lesley Mardenborough, alongside pictures of their respective performers, Djimon Hounsou and Geri Halliwell. Even the creator of the Gran Turismo video games, Kazunori Yamauchi, appears in a picture opposite a pic of his Hollywood counterpart, Takehiro Hira. Beyond that, there’s just the regular film credits.

Gran Turismo is now playing in limited release. It will go wide on Friday, August 25.

Does Shazam! Fury of the Gods have a post-credits scene? And if so, how many?
Shazam points to something in Shazam: Fury of the Gods.

Moviegoers now expect to linger after the end credits roll for superhero movies, as they know there will be one or two (or in some cases, more) "stingers" that tease about the endless sequels and cinematic universes that dominate the pop culture landscape. Just last month, Marvel Studios stuck two end credits scenes at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which teased the growing threat of Jonathan Majors' villain Kang and the second season of the Disney+ series Loki.

DC is no stranger to end credits scenes either, and with the release of its newest film, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, fans have to be wondering if that movie has a post-credits scene or two. Is the future of the DCEU teased? Do any other characters show up like Batman, Black Adam, or the Flash? To find out what happens, keep reading!

Does Scream 6 have a post-credits end scene?

Thanks to modern superhero movies like Iron Man and Black Panther, it's now a ritual for audiences to linger after the end credits roll for pretty much any movie nowadays. If a classic movie like The Sixth Sense was made today, there would be an end credits scene with the ghost of Bruce Willis' character hanging around another poor psychic kid to tease a sequel, The Sixth Sense 2: Deader Than Ever.

Horror is a genre that's recently seen some post-credits scenes lately. The original Insidious and last year's Terrifier 2 both had end credits scenes, which can be important to build up a franchise and tease the sequel we all know is coming at some point. The Scream franchise isn't known to have end credits scenes, but in today's moviegoing climate when every movie seemingly has one, a viewer has to ask: does Scream 6 have a post-credits end scene?
Well, does Scream 6 have a post-credits end scene or not?

5 great Netflix kids movies to watch in the summer
A family of four stand next to each other and make awkward faces.

What a summer it's been for kids' movies. Inside Out 2 is breaking box office records every single day. The Pixar sequel became the fastest animated movie to cross the $1 billion threshold and could legitimately become the highest-grossing animated film of all time. Despicable Me 4 will not catch Inside Out 2's box office grosses, but the Minions are well on their way to becoming one of the most popular movies of 2024.

While animated movies are an excellent option for families, they only represent a portion of the movies offered to kids. Netflix has entire genres and subgenres dedicated to children, from comedies and dramas to fantasy and sci-fi. Below is a list of five kids movies to watch this summer. Our selections include a popular video game adaptation, a sports comedy from a comedic icon, and a fun body-swapping adventure.
