Kingsman The Golden Circle TV Spot

Just a couple weeks ago, the first trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle arrived, giving us a peek into the sequel that finds Eggsy (Taron Egerton) dealing with yet another threat to the world. This time, the Kingsman agents find their headquarters completely destroyed, forcing them to team up with another secret agency in the United States known as the Statesman. Their headquarters just so happen to be located in Kentucky, where Eggys has a hard time getting a good martini in new footage that debuted in conjunction with the Kentucky Derby over the weekend.

Mary Poppins Returns Synopsis

Disney is continuing to dig around in their vault for new movies inspired by their old movies with Mary Poppins Returns, a sequel to the 1964 live-action musical classic Mary Poppins that will have Emily Blunt stepping up to play the titular nanny instead of Julie Andrews. The film won’t arrive until Christmas Day in 2018, but production has already begun at Shepperton Studios in Shepperton, Surrey, England.

Along with Disney’s announcement of the commencement of production, the full cast has been confirmed (most of which we already knew about), and the official synopsis has been revealed as well. Check out the Mary Poppins Returns synopsis and more details after the jump. Read More »

Who Should Play Young Albus Dumbledore

Even before Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters this weekend, we knew that the future of what is now a five-film franchise would have a focus on the villainous plans of Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp. This includes his conflict with Albus Dumbledore, who we know eventually stops him in 1945 thanks to the Harry Potter books.

As such, casting is underway to find an actor other than Michael Gambon to play Albus Dumbledore since the character is roughly 60 years younger in the Fantastic Beasts timeline than he is in the Harry Potter franchise. There haven’t been any names mentioned as being in talks for the role yet, so now that audiences are flocking to see Fantastic Beasts this weekend, we thought we’d propose some potential names for who should play young Albus Dumbledore in the future sequels. Find out who made our list after the jump. Read More »

kingsman resurrection

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2014, a wild reinvention of old school spy movie imagery that never spared the gore while ruthlessly satirizing just about anything remotely connected to modern politics and espionage. It’s a messy movie, but it’s the best kind of messy – it has so much on its plate and so many targets in its sights that it moves breathlessly from one bizarre idea to another.

And it had a high body count, with large swaths of the original cast not living to see the credits roll. And now, a long-simmering rumor associated with the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, has been seemingly confirmed: a certain dead character will somehow make it back for the sequel. This feels like the kind of reveal that will inevitably surface in a trailer, but proceed with caution and consider this a spoiler warning.

Bridget Jone's Baby

The onslaught of sequels won’t end with summer. Fall brings a whole new batch, including Bridget Jones’s Baby. Fifteen years after the first film, Bridget (Renée Zellweger) is a little older, a little wiser, but no less prone to getting into awkward scrapes. More specifically, she’s dealing with a surprise pregnancy and two potential fathers. In one corner, there’s Mark Darcy (Colin Firth), the former man of her dreams. In the other, there’s Jack Qwant (Patrick Dempsey), a charming American suitor.

Our gal is left to figure out which one is the biological father of her child — as well as which one she wants to be with happily ever after. Watch the Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer below.

kingsman 2 details

There’s a whole lot about Kingsman: The Golden Circle that sounds new. Eggsy (Taron Egerton) will be heading across the pond to America for this new adventure, meeting new friends (like Ginger, played by Halle Berry) and new foes (like Poppy, played by Julianne Moore) along the way. But there’ll be a few familiar elements as well, including Merlin (Mark Strong). And the first Kingsman 2 poster suggests another old friend has joined the fray.

(Spoilers ahead, though it doesn’t look like the marketing team is exactly going out of its way to keep this particular plot point under wraps.)  Read More »

Bridget Jones's Baby trailer

Last we checked in with Bridget Jones in 2004’s The Edge of Reason, everyone’s favorite “wanton sex goddess” was getting engaged to the dreamy Mr Darcy (Colin Firth). In this fall’s Bridget Jones’s Diary, our girl, now in her 40s, finally seems to have it all: a great job, a handsome man, and even an adorable little bundle of joy on the way.

… Except that, in typical Bridget Jones fashion, the job’s a struggle, the handsome man is actually two handsome men, and she’s not quite sure which one is the father of that baby. Plus, her English accent seems kind of iffy — though that’s really Renee Zellweger‘s problem, not Bridget’s. Watch the first Bridget Jones’s Baby trailer after the jump.  Read More »
