Hyping up the new “live-action” version of The Lion King on Jimmy Kimmel Live!Mandalorian producer Jon Favreau told Kimmel that he was “actually writing part of the second season now.”

Spider-Man: Far from Home

Thanos is creating chaos inside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe once again. MCU fans are now arguing over what the Mad Titan’s snap is actually called after the release of Spider-Man: Far from Home. The Tom Holland-starring sequel is the first time we’ve been able to see what life is like in the post-snap world and it refers to the event as something else. For the past several months, fans have been referring to the event as the Decimation, but that may have been thrown out the window now.

In Spider-Man: Far From Home, the snap is referred to as the “Blip.” So, which is it, the “Blip” or Decimation? MCU fans are currently still trying to state their case for the true name and it’s starting to get a bit ugly...

Jumanji: The Next Level

 Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level

There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the first trailer for Jumanji: The Next Level, and we still have a couple months to go before the film is released to the public. However, there’s something that’s stood out in this first round of marketing, and that’s the fact that Karen Gillan’s Ruby Roundhouse seems to be the only character that hasn’t changed in the film’s lineup.

With everyone else in the Jumanji: The Next Level crew switching into new avatar experiences, it almost looks like Ruby’s not going to change much, as she’s still under the control of Morgan Turner’s Martha. It’s a possibility that’s given us pause, but it looks like it won’t be much of an issue.

That quote was dropped during Karen Gillan and Jack Black’s time ...

The Rise of Skywalker

The Rise of Skywalker

Timothy Zahn‘s upcoming Thrawn: Treason book may provide us with some information on the Death Star in The Rise of Skywalker. The first trailer for the upcoming movie dropped earlier this year and Star Wars fans were quick to notice that the destroyed remnants of the Death Star are on display, though it is unclear where it is. It could be Yavin 4 or Endor, but fans are beginning to think it could be somewhere else. Thankfully, it looks like some answers could be on the way.

A new excerpt from Thrawn: Treason has been released and it brings Palpatine, Thrawn, Director Krennic, and Grand Moff Tarkin together. The short snippet isn’t heavy on information, but it goes into detail about the making of the first Death Star before the events of A New Hope...

Halle Bailey to star as Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid!

Walt Disney Pictures has announced that 19-year-old Grown-ish actress Halle Bailey of the R&B group Chloe x Halle will play the lead role of Ariel in Disney’s Little Mermaid live-action movie adaptation!

“After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,” said director Rob Marshall in a statement.

Avengers: Endgame

As promised, a new version of Avengers: Endgame arrived in theaters today, supposedly the last big push for the film before it leaves theaters, hopefully (at least as far as Disney’s concerned) as the new #1 biggest film of all time.

Marvel said fans that they would get “a video introduction by director Anthony Russo and an unfinished deleted scene from the film, and it will be a chance for fans to get a head start on the upcoming Marvel Studios’ “Spider-Man: Far From Home” via a special sneak peek!” The “unfinished deleted scene” involved the Hulk, and would have introduced the character instead of the way he’s revealed in the film, having lunch with Captain America, Black Widow, and Ant-Man...

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes

When you break it down, it’s crazy how many iterations of Sherlock Holmes we’ve seen crop up on both the big and small screen in the last 10 years. While the character never really ever left the public consciousness, Robert Downey Jr.’s version in Guy Ritchie’s 2009 film started a brand new wave of adaptations featuring the great detective, and various film and television projects have left us with different incarnations of the caustic investigator played by Ian McKellen, Will Ferrell, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jonny Lee Miller.

Now that particular list is growing longer, as Henry Cavill is soon to become the latest star to play Sherlock Holmes on the big screen.

Specifically he will be doing so as part of Enola Holmes – a new movie based on the boo...

Queen and Slim

Queen and Slim

Universal Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for Queen & Slim. Footage from the upcoming drama was revealed at CinemaCon earlier this year and it got people talking. After seeing this first trailer, it’s easy to understand why. Headlined by Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya, with newcomer Jodie Turner-Smith partnered up with him on this intense journey of lovers on the run, this looks like it could be an awards season contender and, more than that, a socially relevant piece of cinema.

The trailer starts out rather nice, with a new romance being struck up. However, things devolve rather quickly as a situation between this couple and a police officer gets ugly in a hurry...

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

The figures are in for new mobile game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite‘s launch, and the results are both encouraging and a little discouraging when weighed against the launch of the similar Pokemon Go.

Early reports from data firm Sensor Tower reveals that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was the number one download on Apple’s U.S. App Store (for the free apps category). It’s believed to have achieved about 400,000 downloads and about $300,000 in revenue during its initial day of public availability. Those numbers certainly aren’t bad in and of themselves, but a look at Pokemon Go‘s launch numbers reveals some interesting comparisons.

During its first day of availability, Pokemon Go was downloaded a stunning 7...

Spider-Man: Far From Home

When you’re a superhero, you do as a superhero does: brood on a rooftop. Now it’s time for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker to have his existential crisis, as he ponders how his superhero double life is wreaking havoc on his personal life in the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home clip. And because it can’t be a Spider-Man movie without Peter having a morally dubious male mentor, Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) steps in to give Peter a superhero pep talk

Every superhero needs a good rooftop to brood on, but in the case of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he gets to do it from an beautiful European city balcony. But despite the idyllic setting, Peter’s emotions aren’t in any less turmoil, as he weighs the superhero life with his love life...

Escape Plan: The Extractors

Escape Plan: The Extractors

We have a brand new, red-band trailer for Escape Plan: The Extractors that brings the home-video Sylvester Stallone action someone out there has probably been craving. This is, amazingly, the third entry in this franchise, which kicked off with a big screen edition in 2013 and co-starred Arnold Schwarzenegger after he left political office. Now, Stallone has teamed up with Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista and 50 Cent for an action-packed hostage situation.

For the most part, these direct-to-video action flicks seem to be a dime a dozen and rarely stand out. Based on the trailer at least, this actually looks like it could easily deliver enough thrills to justify spending $1.50 to rent this from a Redbox on a Wednesday night...

Captain Marvel’s Honest Trailers

Captain Marvel’s Honest Trailers

Nick Fury’s last course of action before being dusted at the shocking end of Infinity War was to call on Carol Danvers. But before we could witness her join the Avengers in the battle against Thanos, fans were treated to her origin story. Captain Marvel was a $1.1 billion box office success about the titular hero … and grunge looked good on her!

Now that the movie has made its way to home release, she has her own Honest Trailer and it’s a particularly hilarious episode that targets all the ‘90s set pieces, just how “emotional” Carol is and Fury and Goose’s relationship. Take a look:

The trailer starts off just as Captain Marvel does, with that heartbreaking tribute to Stan Lee as “Epic Voice Guy” John Bailey gets a bit emotional...

‘Pennyworth’ : Batman’s Butler

‘Pennyworth’ : Batman’s Butler

Before Alfred was Batman’s loyal manservant he was … well he was still Alfred, but he was, like, way cooler. He did awesome spy stuff! The messes he cleaned up [puts on sunglasses] were international incidents with the fate of the world at stake.

At least that is the premise of the new series Pennyworth, coming to EPIX later this summer. On the show, Alfred (played by Jack Bannon) is still a young man, working for Bruce Wayne’s pops Thomas many years before Bruce’s birth. The show will show how Alfred became Alfred, and presumably why he’s so loyal to the Wayne family (and so oddly adept at sewing battle wounds and fixing Batmobiles).

Watch the show’s full trailer above; Here’s the series’ synopsis:

Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred...

Men In Black: International

Men in Black: International is one of Sony’s big summer blockbusters and hoping to launch a new series within the franchise, but it was actually the cheapest installment in the property to make. On the big screen, Men in Black got its start back in 1997 and was one of the biggest hits of the year, earning $589.3 million worldwide and positive reviews praising the fresh concept and buddy cop chemistry between Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. Unsurprisingly, sequels were made, but both followups failed to recapture the magic of the original and saw diminishing returns.

After a potential crossover with Sony’s successful Jump Street franchise went south, the studio opted to give MIB a soft reboot in the form of this weekend’s Men in Black: International. Pairing Thor: Ragnarok co-stars Chr...

‘Dark Phoenix’

The news looked bad for Dark Phoenix after its Friday box office numbers were released, and it seems worse now. Experts claimed it was headed for an opening of about $35 million, but the film — the 12th movie in the X-Men franchise — wound up with even less than that.

According to estimates, the film earned $33 million in the U.S. in its opening weekend. That’s not only the worst debut for an X-Men movie in the 20-year history of the series, it’s the worst debut for an X-Men movie in the 20-year history of the series by $20 million dollars. The previous low was The Wolverine, which opened with $53.1 million in U.S. theaters in 2013.

These numbers aren’t adjusted for inflation either. After you do that, these numbers look even worse. X-Men’s $54...

Spider-Man’s New Stealth Suit

Spider-Man’s New Stealth Suit

Spider-Man: Far from Home features a suit that is more complicated than the Batsuit. Peter Parker has shown off a few new looks in the promotional material for the sequel, but none have been more intriguing than the black stealth suit. Tony Stark obviously won’t be around for the movie, but his influence is there and so is a lot of his tech, thanks to a hidden lab on a Stark jet. With that being said, a lot of hard work went on behind-the-scenes to bring the new suit to life.

The Stealth Suit in Far From Home is not a Tony Stark design. However, the suit is “very much in the world” of Black Widow and S.H.I.E.L.D., according to Graham Churchyard, the costume FX supervisor on the sequel...

John Wick 3 Parabellum

In this third installment of the adrenaline-fueled action franchise, super-assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) returns with a $14 million price tag on his head and an army of bounty-hunting killers on his trail. After killing a member of the shadowy international assassin’s guild, the High Table, John Wick is excommunicado, but the world’s most ruthless hit men and women await his every turn.

The Good

John Wick 3 did not skip a single moment of suspense following up where John Wick 2 left off. The first 20 minutes of the movie were incredibly suspenseful given the pressure of the looming countdown. If you have ever seen an episode of the TV show “24“, then this will feel pretty similar...

Oceans 8

Oceans 8 throws us back in to the action with the release from prison of Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), Danny’s (George Clooney) younger sister. After five long years in the penitentiary, Debbie reunites with her former partner in crime Lou (Cate Blanchett) to formulate a monster plan to remove $150 million dollars worth of jewels from the neck of actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway) at the iconic Met Gala. In true Oceans fashion, it takes an army, and the pair recruit jewellery maker Amita (Mindy Kaling), profiteer Tammy (Sarah Paulson), pickpocket Constance (Awkwafina), hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna) and fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham Carter) to help them pull off the diamond snatch of the century.

Let me be level headed for a hot second first...
