Kormákur will also produce alongside Will Packer and James Lopez, and
In a memorandum (via Deadline), Amber Heard’s lawyers also claim that both Johnny Depp and Warner Bros. have been reticent to give exact dates for the filming of Fantastic Beasts 3.

He’s Been Dead For Over Six Decades In the DC Extended Universe continuity, Gal Gadot’s Diana first ventured out into man’s world with Steve Trevor in 1918, with the Amazon princess coming with the soldier to stop World War I. Diana and Steve became quite close during their short time together, but Steve met a
Well, yeah, he does, but first, that doesn’t mean he’s somehow incapable or unwilling to do other things, and second, it doesn’t mean that Disney movies are incapable of handling more topical or important storylines. Will people walk out of the new Lion King and compare it to Moonlight when it comes to groundbreaking cinema?
Willow Smith, a performer in her own right, often joins Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” to discuss personal feelings and experiences. This week, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself back to the table to talk about going public about the August Alsina entanglement, calling it a “total breakdown of any mask.” Willow Smith also wanted
While speaking with The Daily Mail, Eddie Redmayne mentioned how was alarmed by the “vitriol” that was directed at J.K. Rowling on social media, which he described as “absolutely disgusting” and led him to sending her a private note. However, Redmayne also said he disagreed with her comments, noting that he has many “trans friends
Wherever Spiderhead falls on the production schedule, considering the body of talent involved, this clearly could end up being one of Netflix’s bigger cinematic offerings. Who knows, perhaps it could even catch more steam than Extraction did and become Netflix’s most new most-watched original movie yet. To accomplish that though, over 99 million households would
Henry Cavill’s career has been booming over the past few years, but the 37 year-old actor has also been tasked with playing some truly beloved characters. Each of these roles likely comes with its own pressure, although Cavill admits that playing Sherlock in Enola Holmes was a different experience. He recently spoke to the pressure
Overall though, he’s got his heart set on the mid-budget drama. As of right now, he has a slew of mid-budget movie projects that he will either direct and/or star in. For instance, he’s set to write, direct, and star in World War II drama Ghost Army and star in the drama The Last Duel
How The End Of Hunger Games Sets Up A Sequel The final scene of the final Hunter Games film, with Katniss and Peeta raising their young children in the countryside, is a beautiful and bittersweet one, but not without loose ends that still need to be tied. We see this in Katniss’ last line, as
The Hamilton cast utilizes a variety of different narrative devices to get the point across — including taking on the part of your average apathetic voter. Instead of singing the infamous lines, “Alexander Hamilton, my name is Alexander Hamilton,” current Hamilton cast member Justice Moore sits on her couch and looks bored while she sings,
As he teases, his role was a lot more martial arts-heavy than other films in the genre might be, so he was doing some intense fight training and choreography that was “painful” and hellish, as he puts it. Plus, this is Henry Golding’s most physical role yet, so it’s understandable that the experience was not
And if there’s any reason why Tenet should come home right now, it’s this. Christopher Nolan wanted to push this movie into the theaters, and it was an interesting experiment, given world events. But the experiment didn’t really work in America, and the movie is suffering because of it. There are likely plenty of people
Initially, there was a lot more in the way of emotional stuff coming out because it was digging deep into my own personal stuff. And we pared it back. What we were left with behind was an emotionally connected Sherlock, but only emotionally connected with one person. And that was Enola. And I loved building
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett brought a bit of Scream energy with them on Ready Or Not already, with that movie centering on a newlywed being hunted by her in-laws, who are part of a dark cult. Scream 5 is still ahead of schedule by our measure, despite the small setback. It was originally intended
Screamin’ Slasher Edition (Shudder) Shudder is also a fairly new streaming service, and it’s completely made up of horror films, so this is a great hub to go to during Halloween time. As for this marathon, the screamin’ slasher edition is not for the faint of heart (especially compared to the past two). These are
It’s a perspective that probably exists not only among some celebrities but also among a lot of people who aren’t celebrities. We’re all probably a little guilty of doing things that maybe aren’t in perfect alignment with the causes we hold dear, and when you stop to think about it, that can really make you
For those unfamiliar with this movie, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is based on the real life story of seven defendants who were hit with various charges by the federal government related to anti-Vietnam War and counterculture protests that took place in Chicago during the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

More specifically, Ford was ordered to complete a “remedial runway incursion training course,” as per a recent report on TMZ. The incident that instigated this particular fallout saw Harrison Ford crossing the runway of Hawthorne Airport, despite being given instructions to hold for incoming traffic. Ford claims that he thought he’d heard himself getting the
We live in a world that just generally feels more dangerous than it used to. Things you never thought you had to be afraid of before are now quite real threats. Such is the case with COVID-19, and also the dinosaurs in Jurassic World: Dominion. The movie, which will continue the newest chapter of the
Back in 1996, Paul Rudd would have just had his big break with Clueless, the Amy Heckerling classic that had Alicia Silverstone starring as Cher and spewing the line “As if!” Witherspoon must have been 20 in the above picture, with a few films under her belt, including The Man in the Moon and A
Tom Hanks added that he doesn’t know what his father’s relationship was like with his grandfather, though the actor described Amos’ mother as a “very religious woman.” Alas, because Amos witnessed his father’s murder, he ended up becoming the black sheep of the family. Furthermore, Tom Hanks noted that this tragedy resulted in Amos never
Aaaron Sorkin was preparing to film The Trial of the Chicago 7 back in 2007, which eventually fell through due to the writer’s strike and Steve Spielberg dropped out as director. Sorkin is directing and wrote the new Netflix movie, which features familiar faces like Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eddie Redmayne, and Michael Keaton.
Personally, I didn’t think it was necessary to have him come back, but it did bring the franchise completely full circle and add immense stakes for Rey and the Resistance. If Rey was a Kenobi, the franchise could have focused entirely on Rey vs. Kylo Ren as the rest of the trilogy was doing, but
As for staying at the Twilight home, it seems to be so popular its owners are asking for a 12 month advance booking, if you can find a spot to nab. This isn’t exactly surprising, it’s rare to be able to stay in a film location, especially one that is centrally located in Portland, Oregon–
So while a few steps were taken to modernize J. Jonah Jameson for the MCU and distinguish him from his cinematic predecessor, overall, it sounds like these changes didn’t bother J.K. Simmons too much. For what my two cents are worth, the little we saw of Jameson in Spider-Man: Far From Home was still very
Last Night In Soho – April 23, 2021 Edgar Wright has been playing with genre throughout his career, between making Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver, Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Hot Fuzz.

Of course, Tom Holkenborg is no stranger to scoring major motion pictures. In the last half decade alone, his music credits have included Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Tomb Raider, Terminator: Dark Fate, Alita: Battle Angel and Sonic the Hedgehog. Still, the fact that he now gets to leave
In 2013, the dawn of humanity took a hysterical, family friendly step forward into theaters with Dreamworks Animation’s The Croods. The ensemble comedy about a cave family who embark on one of the greatest, and first, adventures in human history. For a while, a sequel was talked about as being in the works, but the
