With a heist crew that includes Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina, how can you not be stoked for Ocean’s 8? Just in case you needed a little extra convincing, Paulson has debuted the first official poster for the Steven Soderbergh-produced sequel / spinoff, and it has one hell of a tagline.
The notion of Taika Waititi bringing his delightful sensibilities to another major franchise — or any form of media, really — is certainly attractive. After reinvigorating the Thor series with the outlandishly entertaining and colorful (in more ways than one) Ragnarok, Waititi likely has his pick of projects to take on next, though many fans of the filmmaker would probably rather see him deliver another original feature. But if Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy had it her way, Waititi would sign on to direct a Star Wars movie.
During the pivotal scene in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Colin Farrell’s Percival Graves is revealed to be none other than the storied villain Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp in a short cameo. The casting of Depp, who will have a more prominent role moving forward, has drawn ire from fans and journalists alike due to his alleged physical and verbal abuse of ex-wife and actress Amber Heard. While women everywhere are being empowered to break their silence after suffering years of misogynistic abuse, J.K. Rowling has broken hers to stand in support of an abuser.
Ryan Reynolds is adding another quirky note to the delightfully bizarre timeline of his career, which is already punctuated with a strange collection of notable characters like Van Wilder, Green Lantern, and Deadpool — the latter of which has helped us forget all about the first two (until now, I am so sorry). The actor is trading in his mercenary spandex and seemingly infinite mental Rolodex of profanity for a Pokeball and some decidedly family-friendly language in Detective Pikachu.
News broke late last Friday evening that Fox had halted production on Bohemian Rhapsody, curiously citing the “unexpected unavailability” of Bryan Singer. Although a representative for the director released a statement citing a “personal health matter,” many suspected that Singer’s absence and subsequent production interruption signaled the director’s imminent exit — whether by choice or by force. Those suspicions have been proven correct, as a new report reveals that Singer has been fired from Bohemian Rhapsody over repeated absences and unprofessional behavior that has led to altercations with the cast of the long-developing Queen biopic.
When Kevin Spacey was hit with allegations of sexual misconduct, Netflix took swift, immediate action: Production on House of Cards was suspended as Netflix launched an internal investigation, and Spacey’s employment with the streaming giant was terminated. While the company acted responsibly in the wake of growing allegations against Spacey, it also came under fire for its hypocrisy. Danny Masterson, star of The Ranch, is the subject of an active police investigation based on four women’s claims that the actor raped them in the early 2000s. Netflix has taken no action against Masterson, and according to at least one company executive, there’s a disturbing reason behind it.
In Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn was one of the few shining spots in David Ayer’s otherwise messy attempt to introduce the grimy super-villain collective. Margot Robbie’s natural charisma elevated the character beyond Joker’s occasional girlfriend and sidekick (and emotional punching bag), and she really zeroed in on the aspects of her personality that have made Harley Quinn such a fan-favorite. It’s no surprise that Warner Bros. is already plotting a pair of spinoffs for the character, but according to Robbie, there’s a third Harley project in the works, too.
Surely, at some point while watching Scooby-Doo’s animated adventures over the years, you must have wondered aloud to no one in particular, “Where the heck did Daphne and Velma come from? I mean, what is their deal?” The history of the Mystery Machine’s lady passengers has been shrouded in secrecy for far too long, but thanks to a new live-action movie, we will finally learn the details of their murky past. And maybe — just maybe — we’ll find out how they wound up hanging out with a stoner who owns a van, a dog with a limited vocabulary and a speech impediment, and a man who is clearly old enough to be their father.
Wonder Woman and IT made a huge impression at the box office this year, but both failed to overtake 2017’s biggest hit: Beauty and the Beast. Released back in March, Disney’s blockbuster reimagining of its animated classic is still the highest-grossing film of the year, and as we wade into the prestigious waters of awards season, the studio is making sure that voters don’t forget about it.
Leave it to Marvel to drop some awesome news on this sleepy Thanksgiving eve, and they’re definitely giving us all something to be thankful for: Jude Law has signed on to play the male lead opposite Brie Larson in Captain Marvel, which marks Larson’s big — and highly-anticipated — MCU debut. Depending on your particular feelings about such things, you may be disappointed or thrilled to learn that he won’t be playing her love interest.
Pop culture nerds undoubtedly have a laundry list of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving — maybe it’s Jeff Goldblum, or another great (and overwhelming) year of peak TV, or a new Star Wars sequel. For some of you, it might be this first teaser for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (oh, they’re just going to stick with that title? OK), which features Chris Pratt interacting with a cute little velociraptor. Although…if we’ve learned anything from these people and their terrifying attempts at playing god with “amusement” parks, it’s that you should never, ever get close to these things.
It seems that Channing Tatum’s long-developing — and frequently delayed — Gambit movie is finally back in business. After losing two directors and his leading lady, Tatum took the X-Men spinoff back to the drawing board to re-develop the screenplay. With Fox’s X-Men universe quickly expanding following the success of Deadpool, it looks like the studio is ready to give Gambit the green light, and they’re eyeing Lizzy Caplan to join Tatum.
