These Photos From London’s Star Wars 8 Premiere Will Make You Smile The European premiere for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the Royal Albert Hall in London featured fan favorite actors and the British Royal family. Tensions are building as the worldwide release dates for Star Wars: The Last Jedi grow ever closer. Though they had no way of getting into the film’s European premiere in London, fans still lined the streets outside the Royal Albert Hall on the night of the gala event. The reasons for this devotion were two-fold.

And now we have another one today this one coming from The Hollywood Reporter. They are reporting that Woody Harrelson is in talks to join the movie in an undisclosed role.

Frank Castle Will Return: ‘The Punisher’ Season 2 Confirmed By Max Covill Jon Bernthal will bring the pain all over again. Violent superhero stories might be a thing of the past once the Disney/Fox merger completes, but one ‘hero’ that will likely be unaffected is The Punisher. Netflix has confirmed through social media that the show featuring Jon Bernthal in the title role will return for a second season. Time to reload. #ThePunisher Season 2 is coming.

Since Thanos first appeared in 2012’s The Avengers, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and company have been teasing the impending showdown between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the Mad Titan.

Box Office Prediction: Managing The Last Jedi Expectations Star Wars: The Last Jedi should go down as one of the most commercially successful films of 2017, but it likely will not reach the high marks of its direct predecessor, The Force Awakens. In 2015, Lucasfilm brought the galaxy far, far away back to the big screen with unprecedented results. Riding waves of positive buzz and arriving in theaters 10 years after Revenge of the Sith, Episode VII rewrote the box office record book with $247.9 million in its opening weekend. The film went on to earn a whopping $936.6 million domestically, blowing Avatar‘s U.S.

Kristin Chenoweth to Star in Stage Musical Version of Meryl Streep’s ‘Death Becomes Her’ Tony- and Emmy-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth is attached to star in a stage musical version of the 1992 dark comedy “Death Becomes Her,” which Universal Theatrical Group is currently developing. Chenoweth would play Madeline Ashton, the vain actress first played by Meryl Streep in director Robert Zemeckis’ hit, which won an Oscar for visual effects. The film starred Streep and Goldie Hawn as bitter rivals who drink a mysterious potion expecting eternal youth — only to discover that they have died and become walking and talking corpses.

Monsters University Meets Call Me By Your Name in Hilarious Fan-Made Trailer Although Monsters University and Call Me By Your Name might not have much in common on the surface, that hasn’t stopped one intrepid YouTuber from creating a mash-up trailer of the two films. After all, Monsters University was a Pixar foray into prequel territory, showing off in detail the early years of Mike and Sully along with a great student/principal rivalry. Conversely, Call Me By Your Name is an intimate look at a hidden relationship from director Luca Guadagnino that deserves all the Oscar hype it’s received.

Fear comes home in latest TV spot for Insidious: The Last Key James Wan has certainly carved out quite the sizeable horror empire for himself, in addition to THE CONJURING and SAW franchises, there's also INSIDIOUS, which finds all manner of horrific demons seeping over to our world from a nightmarish realm known as the Further. A fourth film is now less than a month away, and INSIDIOUS: THE LAST KEY puts the spotlight on Dr. Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), one of... Read More...

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Director Robert Rodriguez Attempts To Explain The Anime Eyes Fox Alita: Battle Angel is a project James Cameron had been trying to direct for years, but since he’s occupied with filming the goings on at Planet Catsex, he’s handed over the directing duties to Sin City‘s Robert Rodriguez. When the first trailer dropped last Friday, one question raised by many people boiled down to, “What the hell is up with her eyes?” To be fair, the character in the manga and anime Battle Angel Alita is supposed to be immediately recognizable as not human, and boy howdy do those eyes accomplish that.

The revolution isn’t over yet. USA Network announced that Mr. Robot has been renewed for a fourth season, shortly before its third season finale airs. This renewal comes on the tail of the most invigorating season of the grim hacker show yet and star Christian Slater‘s third nomination for a Golden Globe for his work as the title character. The third season has found idealistic hacker Elliot Anderson (Rami Malek) attempting to undo the devastating consequences of his hack that brought down the global economy, engineered by his wrathful alternate personality Mr.

By Jacob Oller The music of Stranger Things made us dive into the show, but it’s much more than that. The ‘80s live on in the two seasons of Stranger Things and I’m not talking the clothes. The sounds of the decade are everywhere and have been since the beginning. To understand this, a video has lined up key sequences of the show with musical themes from giants like E.T. and Goonies – not to mention the work of John Carpenter. The moog is right for dancing and Stranger Things is nothing if not a dedicated student.

Tiffany Haddish, John Cho Join Ike Barinholtz’s ‘The Oath’ Tiffany Haddish and John Cho have joined “The Oath,” written and directed by Ike Barinholtz, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap. Carrie Brownstein, Billy Magnussen, Meredith Hagner, Jon Barinholtz, Nora Dunn, and Chris Ellis are also joining the cast of the film that marks Barinholtz’s directorial debut. QC Entertainment and UTA are co-representing the film for domestic sales. Sean McKittrick, Ray Mansfield, Edward H. Hamm Jr., Andrew Robinson, David Stassen and Barinholtz will produce.

‘Nightmare Alley’ Remake Coming From Guillermo del Toro (Maybe, at Some Point) Guillermo del Toro may have recently made a film about a god of the seas, but the Mexican-American director is the king of unfinished projects. The Shape of Water director has announced that he will be helming a new project, a remake of the 1947 noir Nightmare Alley. But to add more to his ever-growing slate, del Toro is also attached to produce Antlers, a supernatural horror film for Fox Searchlight. They both sound like exciting projects for the acclaimed director, who is truly one of the most visionary and creative filmmakers working today.

The Dark Crystal Returns to Theaters in February Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal is returning to theaters this February in a newly restored version, but for two-nights only.

What is Stan Lee‘s cameo on Runaways? When can we expect a Nightwing casting announcement? Will Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse have any connection to the live-action Spider-Man movies? Do you support fans petitioning to get Patty Jenkins a Golden Globe nomination? Will Gwen Stacy be introduced in the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel?

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is almost finished baking, but it needs a little extra sugar before it makes its way to theaters. Like any big-budget tentpole that relies heavily on CGI effects, there are significant reshoots planned for Disney’s adaptation of the E.T.A.

So we reported earlier that James Franco filmed almost 30 minutes of recreated THE ROOM footage for his film, THE DISASTER ARTIST. That's quite an impressive feat - made even more impressive when you consider most of it doesn't seem to have actually made it into the final cut. It's also really, really, eerily accurate - almost frame perfect. You can see at least some of the... Read More...

So, after all the hype and drama behind the making and release of the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie, it kinda came and went. It was savaged by critics, and received mixed-to-negative reviews from fans, as well as being a legitimate flop at the box-office. Which is a shame, because I actually didn't mind the film (though it was certainly flawed). However, this wasn't the first JUSTICE LEAGUE film proposed by... Read More...

Netflix is Bringing She-Ra Back By Sheryl Oh The Princess of Power will be rebooted on the streaming service. The 80s just keep coming back in a big way. This week, it has been announced that Princess Adora is heading back to the small screen courtesy of Netflix and Dreamworks Animation. New episodes of She-Ra: Princess of Power will be premiering sometime in 2018. She-Ra was first conceived as Prince Adam/He-Man’s sister, in a very binary attempt to appeal to girls after the latter became a hit for boys in both the toy store and onscreen.

While fans can walk around inside a physical recreation of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios theme parks, there’s nothing that simulates the experience of being a student at the school from the Harry Potter books and movies.

The series finale of GAME OF THRONES won't air until 2019, which should give you plenty of time to purchase a box of Kleenex or two, for when the program comes to an epic and bloody end. Recently, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on HBO's long-running fantasy drama, described the table reading session for the series finale of GAME OF THRONES to Entertainment... Read More...

Black Lightning is a historic character, as he was the first black superhero to headline his own DC comic-book series. So it's nice to see him get his due on the CW - which in many fan's eyes - does a better job with superheroes than the DCEU does. Even if you disagree (I can't say, as I don't really watch the CW DC shows), I think the trailer embedded above looks... Read More...

Woody Woodpecker, the cartoon bird who laughs a lot, went and got himself a feature-length film, and now the trailer has arrived to make us all question our very existence. This live-action comedy has Woody making life a living hell for human beings everywhere, like the mischievous elf Puck from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Also, there are poop jokes. Watch the Woody Woodpecker trailer below. Foolish mortals, what have you done? What ancient, cursed tome have you cracked open to unleash the unspeakable terror that is this Woody Woodpecker trailer? You remember Woody Woodpecker, right?

The credits start to roll, the lights come up, and as the crowd stands from their seats, they hear a song. It’s hard enough to keep an audience occupied for two hours. Now try holding their attention for just another two minutes before they’re out the door. “I was hoping I had a song I could sing for as long as people wanted to hear it,” said Elvis Costello, an artist and rocker who knows a thing or two about music made to grab you.

Steven Spielberg shows no signs of slowing down. The 70-year-old filmmaker will be delivering the excellent The Post to theaters this month and releasing his pop culture extravaganza Ready Player One in 2018. But just because Spielberg seems to be constantly plowing ahead into the future, that doesn’t mean we can’t stop and reflect on his past.

While there may be a lot of mystery surrounding whether The Greatest Showman is any good or not — the review embargo remains while the movie swoops up surprise Golden Globe nominations for best comedy/musical and best actor — there is no mystery to the fact that this is a straight-up musical. And these new The Greatest Showman featurettes are here to remind you of that, offering you plenty of clips of Hugh Jackman buoyantly dancing to the songs written by the acclaimed composers of La La Land. There’s a lot of hyperbole going on in The Greatest Showman — the most obvious being the tit

Goosebumps Movie Sequel Lands A New Director The Goosebumps movie sequel, which is tentatively titled Goosebumps: Horrorland, has found a new director in Ari Sandel.

Black Panther International Trailer Is the Best One Yet A new international trailer for Marvel's Black Panther has arrived online and it comes with a bunch of amazing new footage.

It appears that another bullied kid is attending the Avengers: Infinity War premiere next year after Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo aka the Hulk/Bruce Banner personally invites him to the event.

Weekend Update hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che have earned a big promotion at Saturday Night Live. The team have been named co-head writers of the show, according to a report from Variety. Che and Jost join current head writers Kent Sublette and Bryan Tucker, meaning there are now four head writers of SNL, so can we really call any of them “head” writer? Saturday Night Live has experienced a creative and popular resurgence of late, fueled largely by the Donald Trump campaign and presidency, a seemingly limitless supply of gallows humor.

Getty Image Despite Mark Hamill’s feelings that George Lucas could’ve added his experience to the production of the new Star Wars trilogy, the man himself feels that things are in good hands. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucas offered high praise to Johnson after screening The Last Jedi ahead of its premiere: The Star Wars creator recently screened the highly-anticipated upcoming installment and thought it was “beautifully made,” Connie Wethington, a rep for Lucas told Heat Vision.

After an insane last-minute comeback by the bad guys, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his coalition were beaten down pretty hard but still not broken, driven underground by a newly emboldened Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors. The Kingdom has been abandoned, and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) taken. Alexandria burns under Negan’s scorched earth retribution. The Hilltop readies itself for a final battle.

Location-based virtual reality company Dreamscape Immersive closed a $30 million round of funding on Wednesday, spearheaded by AMC Entertainment, Nickelodeon and Dubai billionaire Majid Al Futtaim. The Los Angeles-based company, which uses body-mapping technology to allow up to six people to interact as full-body virtual avatars in a computer-generated world, also received investment from VRSense Solutions Limited, and Image Nation Abu Dhabi.

Getty Image In the dark times (the late 1990s), when you had to, ugh, go to a movie theater to watch a movie trailer, I was one of the many thousands who begged his parents to take him to see Meet Joe Black. I had no interest in the film itself — I am still unsure if the titular Mr. Black is Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins, or if there’s a little Joe Black inside all of us — but I wanted to see the teaser for Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Director Matthew Vaughn is currently working on ideas for Kingsman 3, but will he return to direct it or hand it off to someone else?

"A man on top of his game." HBO has unveiled the first brief teaser trailer for a feature-length documentary titled David Bowie: The Last Five Years, a profile of the late musicians final five years. The filmmaker behind this doc also made a film about the best five years of Bowie's life, and now will follow that up with this one, with seems to look back at his entire career and how it culminates in these final five years.

The reviews are in, and Disney's Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a huge hit with Rotten Tomatoes critics.

Wait, Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger are starring in a period action-movie together, and I haven't heard about it?! And it's being released in just a couple months?! What the hell kind of world is this?! Well, a part of that reason is that this is a Chinese-Russian co-production, and that it's only got an official Russian release lined up so far (at least according to imdb).... Read More...

Is it just me, or is Kevin Hart everywhere, these days? This is not a complaint, mind you, I think he's one of the funnier talents to enter the limelight of the past few years. Today, it's been announced that Hart will play a hitman in ON THE ROAD, a forthcoming comedy produced by Will Packer (RIDE ALONG) for Universal. BROOKLYN NINE-NINE's Aeysha Carr will write the movie, which... Read More...

After four seasons of breaking out (and in) of a variety of locations, the adventures of Michael (Wentworth Miller), Lincoln (Dominic Purcell), Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), and the rest came to an end in 2009, but, after rumblings of a revival, the series returned earlier this year for nine-episodes. Fan reaction was mixed and unfortunately the revival wasn't exactly a ratings juggernaut, but... Read More...

Ed Helms hasn’t quite been able to parlay his success on The Office onto the big screen, but perhaps his new film The Clapper will change that. The quirky romantic comedy has Helms playing a professional infomercial audience member who finds himself smitten with a gas station attendant played by Amanda Seyfried.

Our latest original video offers up a comedic take on what really happened in the first pitch meeting for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As you know, a few years after the underwhelming fan response to the prequel trilogy, George Lucas sold the rights to the franchise to Disney, who then laid out plans for a new film series that would serve as sequels to Lucas’ first three efforts in the galaxy far, far away. The stakes were understandably high, but thankfully, Episode 7 proved to be a return to form for the beloved franchise.
