Last month we got our very first look at actor Charlie Hunnam in costume as King Arthur on the first day of filming his new movie Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. Today we get another look at Chuck as Arthur on the UK set of the film. Knights, as you may know, is being directed by Guy Ritchie and will also co-star Eric Bana, Jude Law and Djimon Hounsou … among others. The cast sounds great, yes, but I know that quite a few of us are only here for Charlie :) Have a look at your new king below. More »
Yesterday we learned the disappointing news that director Michelle MacLaren decided to pull out of the Wonder Woman feature film project due to creative differences with the movie studio. Today we learn the very hopeful news that director Patty Jenkins has signed on to direct Wonder Woman instead. Jenkins was previously hired by Marvel Studios to direct Thor 2 but she left that project before filming production started. Next, she will bring the story of Wonder Woman to life on the big screen which, I must say, is a huge relief. More »
Earlier this month, we saw the first photos from the Vancouver set of the new Marvel Studios movie Deadpool and today we get to see a bunch of great new set photos. As you will see in the gallery presented here, Ryan Reynolds was on set in full costume as Deadpool and he was joined by actors Brianna Hildebrand, who plays Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Ed Skrein, who plays Ajax. The inclusion of these characters, along with the X-Men mutant Colossus (who will also appear in the film but is not pictured here), means that Deadpool will absolutely be tied to the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe — hopefully, in a brilliantly clever way. It’s always great when we get to see a movie being filmed as set photos are released but it only tends to make me really anxious to see the final product … which, I’m sadly well aware, won’t be in theaters until February of next year. Sigh. Still, it’s fun to see these Deadpool set photos. I can’t wait to see more.
Belle, Beast, Gaston, LeFou and Maurice
Taking a page from the cast of the upcoming DC Comics superhero movie Suicide Squad who shared a first cast photo last week, the cast of Disney‘s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast posed for and snapped a group selfie photo together, which was shared on Josh Gad‘s official Instagram profile. It looks like Josh (LeFou) took the photo and he posed alongside Dan Stevens (Beast), Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston) and Kevin Klein (Maurice, Belle‘s father). Everyone looks happy and appropriately cheesy in this first B&B cast photo. Check it out below. More »
Jake Gyllenhaal has been taking on more serious and much darker roles lately, including his 2014 role in Nightcrawler that earned him an Academy Award nomination, but this summer, Jakey Poo will be taking on a bit of lighter fare. Jake has signed on to make his musical theater debut in order to play the role of Seymour in a new musical production of the off-Broadway hit Little Shop of Horrors this summer for a very limited time only. This production of Little Shop will be part of the New York City Center Encores! Off-Season series and will only run for 3 performances only. OMG! Click below to learn more casting news about this Little Shop production and find out when, exactly, you’ll have the chance to see Jake in the show. More »
A return to Walley World
Today we learn, yet again, that everything old is new again with the release of the first promo photos from the forthcoming sequel/reboot of the National Lampoon’s Vacation movie franchise. Actors Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold in this new Vacation movie, with actor Ed Helms taking over the role of their son Rusty. Christina Applegate has been added to the movie as Rusty‘s wife, along with the couple’s two sons. As you can probably guess, the Griswolds will make a return trip to Walley World in this new movie (undoubtedly with hijinks along the way) because it has to turn out exactly like the old movies. Yay … ? More »
She left over creative differences
Back in November we learned the exciting news that Michelle MacLauren signed on to direct the forthcoming stand-alone Wonder Woman movie. Today we learn the sad news that she has pulled out of the project. According to an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, MacLaren clashed with the movie studio over the direction of the film and left the project over creative differences. HMMM. This does not bode well, at all. Click below to learn more about this upsetting development of the Wonder Woman film. More »

Meet his son, Derek Jr.
In February we learned that filming production of the long-awaited sequel film Zoolander 2 would take place in Rome, Italy but in March, filming actually began DURING Paris Fashion Week (like, right there on the runway). Today we get another update from the Zoolander 2 set from actor Ben Stiller who reveals that his Derek Zoolander character will have a grown son in the sequel. Stiller posted a photo of actor Cyrus Arnold on his official Instagram profile and introduced him as “son of Derek”. LOL. Meet him below. More »
Isn’t it such a great feeling to know that you totally called something? I totally called Eddie Redmayne being a thing. It’s so ridiculous but I truly believe that, because I used to obsess about his minor character in The Other Boleyn Girl so much (when I watched it every night for about 6 months), I put all this positive energy into his career. And now, here he is—an Oscar winner for his role in The Theory of Everything, and a frontrunner for the lead in the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
