fantastic beasts 2 cast

Joining the hunt for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is former Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, as well as a bevy of other new and familiar characters from Harry Potter lore. One of those familiar characters: the renowned Nicolas Flamel, whose Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone formed the basis for the first Harry Potter book and movie. Now we’ll get to see him as a young and strapping wizard, and hopefully better for the wear than Johnny Depp‘s evil Grindelwald, whose terrorizing presence will be even bigger in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

Pottermore has dropped a bunch of new information about the Fantastic Beasts 2 cast and characters, as well as a rudimentary synopsis of the film.

Kate Winslet in Avatar Sequels

It’s been 20 years since James Cameron made one of the biggest blockbuster dramas of all time.

Now one of the Best Picture winner’s stars is heading to a far away world to reunite with James Cameron.

All of the Avatar sequels are now in production (along with the three other sequels that will follow over the next eight years), and Kate Winslet has been confirmed have a role in the anticipated sci-fi follow-ups . Find out more about casting Kate Winslet in Avatar sequels below. Read More »

Venom jenny slate

Sony teamed up with Marvel Studios to allow Spider-Man to swing over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean that Sony is content to give up their entire piece of the superhero pie. They still own the rights to dozens of characters in the Spider-Man pantheon, and they’re crafting their own separate universe with films like Silver and Black that will try to stand on their own without the web-slinger getting involved. Good luck with that, right?

But while that sounds like a misguided idea, I must admit that they’re making some interesting choices so far. First up for them is a Venom solo film, which has slowly gathered an unexpectedly terrific cast. Tom Hardy is playing the title character, and now the latest addition to this cast might make you raise an eyebrow: Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) is now in talks for a Venom role.

Transformers: The Last Knight, the latest in Michael Bay‘s monstrous Transformers franchise, may be one of the worst-reviewed films of 2017, but you can’t keep those Autobots down. Bumblebee, the first in a probably endless series of Transformers spin-offs, is currently in production.

Crazy Stupid Love and Focus directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are currently developing Pandemonium, a biopic of WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon, and a new rumor says that The Hangover and American Sniper star Bradley Cooper has been offered the role of the boisterous and media-savvy personality.

Charlie's Angels reboot

Charlie’s Angels may be getting a punk-pop makeover. Elizabeth Banks‘ upcoming reboot of the action-comedy is reportedly eyeing indie favorite Kristen Stewart as well as Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o for the lead roles.

The action series already received a campy modern reboot in the early 2000s with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu donning the wings, but it may be time for some new stars to take on the mantle first originated by Farrah Fawcett and her glorious feathered hair. Hopefully now set to a soundtrack of grungey indie rock or the whistling of a melancholic wind through drapes — whatever Kristen Stewart listens to.
