Danny Boyle Will Direct ‘Bond 25’ Later This Year
It seems to be official — the long, tiresome saga surrounding the next James Bond movie has finally come to an end. Daniel Craig will once again don his suit and tie, with Danny Boyle getting behind the camera to direct the 25th installment of the iconic 007 franchise…as long as the script meets his approval.
John Travolta Is Playing a Crazy Stalker in a Movie Directed by Fred Durst (Yes, That One)
Say what you will about John Travolta’s career, but you can’t deny that it’s been interesting. And the actor’s latest cinematic curiosity is no exception, though you may need a moment to really process every insane element in the following statement: Travolta is playing a psychotic stalker obsessed with an action movie hero played by Devon Sawa in a new thriller titled Moose, from director Fred Durst. Yes, that Fred Durst — as in the one who rap-rocked about “nookie” and boasted a seemingly endless supply of Adidas athleisurewear during Nu Metal’s reign of terror.
‘The Last Jedi’ Alternate Scene Gives Phasma and Finn a Different Showdown
Even those who adored Rian Johnson’s Star Wars sequel (like us) can probably agree that at least one thing was a little lacking: Captain Phasma. Although we were excited for the return of Gwendoline Christie’s super shiny and ultra-intimidating trooper, she didn’t have a whole lot to do in The Last Jedi. Given the focus of Johnson’s story, that’s understandable, but we would’ve liked to see just a teeny bit more from Christie’s antagonist. Thanks to this alternate scene, now we can.
‘Christopher Robin’ Trailer: Ewan McGregor Gives Winnie the Pooh a ‘Hook’
Aside from Ewan McGregor’s sharp-dressed form, the first observation you’ll make when watching the teaser trailer for Christopher Robin will probably be something like, “Um, isn’t this just Hook, but with Winnie the Pooh and that handsome Scottish man?” And yes, it’s basically that…but hopefully better given some of the talent involved.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Has Also Joined That ‘Kung Fury’ Movie
Arnold Schwarzenegger is the President of the United States of America…in a movie, at least. The action icon and former Governator of California has joined the cast of Kung Fury, the upcoming feature film based on David Sandberg’s 2015 short film of the same name. Schwarzenegger is the latest name to join the full-length version of the cult favorite, which is set in the ’80s and pays homage to the martial arts and cop flicks of the era.
Zac Efron Makes for a Killer Ted Bundy in First Look at ‘Extremely Wicked’
The fact that Zac Efron, handsome human man, looks a lot like Ted Bundy, infamous serial killer, is making us a little…uncomfortable. But maybe that’s the point of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the new film in which Efron portrays Bundy and reminds us that yes, even charismatic and very attractive people can be total murder monsters.
Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson Top List of Highest-Grossing Actors in 2017
It looks like Vin Diesel has bested Dwayne Johnson in at least one arena, clocking in at number one on Forbes’ list of the highest-grossing actors of 2017 — and throwing a little more fuel on that Fast & Furious feud (say that five times fast). Thanks to The Fate of the Furious and xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Diesel edged out his Fast co-star / arch-nemesis, and with fewer 2017 releases under his belt.

Lucasfilm Committed to Rian Johnson’s New ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy Before He Even Had a Story
The first reviews of The Last Jedi are in, with many critics hailing the new Star Wars installment as the best since The Empire Strikes Back. And if critics are that impressed with filmmaker Rian Johnson’s work in the iconic galaxy far, far away, then the folks at Lucasfilm are twice as thrilled — which is why it wasn’t too surprising to learn that the studio had signed Johnson to develop a brand new Star Wars trilogy, complete with new characters and an epic new journey. What might surprise you, however, is that Lucasfilm gave Johnson the OK even though he didn’t have a story idea to pitch.
Daisy Ridley Is Leaving ‘Star Wars’ After ‘Episode IX’
Although only the second installment in the latest Star Wars trilogy is hitting theaters in a couple of weeks, Lucasfilm is already looking ahead to the future of the franchise. The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson has been tapped to develop a new trilogy with new characters as the franchise finally leaves the Skywalker saga behind. That means we’ll be saying goodbye to some of our favorite characters from the current trilogy — and that includes Rey, according to Daisy Ridley.
