If you keep forgetting that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword hasn’t actually come out yet, you’re not alone. Indeed, if you keep forgetting it exists at all, you’re probably not alone there either. After all, it’s been nearly two years since Guy Ritchie entered production on his medieval fantasy epic, which was originally supposed to open in summer 2016. Even Warner Bros. barely seems to be paying this film any mind — they haven’t released a new trailer for its would-be franchise-starter since Comic-Con.
But with about three months to go until release, the studio is finally getting around to marketing it for real. Today, we’ve got the new King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer, starring Charlie Hunnam as the legendary leader and
the Young Pope Jude Law as the villainous Vortigern. Eric Bana, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, Aidan Gillen, and Eric Bana also star. Read More »

The internet has given millions of people a platform to complain about things that don’t matter in the entertainment world, but it has also given millions of people a platform to complain about things that really, really matter and should be carefully considered by everyone working in a creative field. The subject of Hollywood whitewashing, where ethnic characters and stories are given a painful Caucasian makeover, belong in the latter camp. For every Scott Derrickson, who genuinely listened to and learned from fans concerned about whitewashing in Doctor Strange, you have people in positions of authority who really, really don’t give a shit.
So when the producer of Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin says the cast will be diverse, we should all pause and take notice.

Though most of Hollywood is interested in remaking, rebooting or retooling the highest rated TV shows and highest grossing blockbusters franchises, some attention is being paid to giving the treatment to cult classic titles. Such is the case with a series adaptation of Guy Ritchie’s crime comedy Snatch.
Snatch has been turned into a 10-episode series at Sony’s free streaming service Crackle (the same company behind Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and the Joe Dirt sequel no one asked for). It doesn’t follow the same story as the movie, but it tries to capture the spirit and style with the chronicle of a real life heist that happened in London. It also features Harry Potter franchise star Rupert Grint and Gossip Girl heartthrob Ed Westwick in the ensemble cast, but will it be enough to get people to watch?
Check out the Snatch TV series trailer below and decide for yourself, but beware it’s slightly NSFW. Read More »
While Warner Bros. has plenty of heavy-hitters like The Lego Batman Movie, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Dunkirk, and Kong: Skull Island coming out next year, they have a few other notable titles that have a chance at success. There’s Guy Ritchie‘s King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword, Dax Shepard‘s R-rated CHiPs movie, a romance called Everything, Everything, and, a film guaranteed to make some bucks, Annabelle 2 — and these four films all have new release dates.
Below, learn the new King Arthur release date and more.

Back in April, it was announced Crackle was developing a 10-episode television adaptation of Guy Ritchie‘s Snatch.

Sadly, director Guy Ritchie didn’t attend Comic-Con this year to promote a Man From U.N.C.L.E. 2. We’re not going to see that sequel anytime soon (or ever…), but Ritchie is currently hard at work on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Today, the first trailer for the fantasy film debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. Since Ritchie was preoccupied, only Charle Hunnam (Pacific Rim) was present to discuss the movie, which he described as possessing a “magical realism” quality.
Below, watch the King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer.

If you had forgotten that Guy Ritchie was directing an expensive movie based Arthurian legend, you’re not alone. Warner Bros. has been pretty quiet about the upcoming King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which is supposedly the first in a series of films following Arthur Pendragon and the various knights who would eventually gather at his Round Table. It looks like that silence has officially broken as two new image from the film have arrived, showing off Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur and Jude Law as the villainous Vortigern.

While making the publicity rounds for Captain America: Civil War, some surprising news came from Robert Downey Jr. that Sherlock Holmes 3 was still in the works. In fact, there was even a chance that the film could shoot later this year. Shortly thereafter, the sequel landed a writer with James Coyne hired for the gig. Now producer Joel Silver adds more hope that the sequel will happen, and he indicates that this probably won’t be the last one.

Just last week, Robert Downey Jr. offered an update on the next Sherlock Holmes movie, suggesting that a third film in the series could start filming later this year. Considering the apparent lack of momentum on the project, it sounded unlikely. If nothing else, it sounded like Downey trying to keep people interested in a project that was still nowhere close to existing. After all, the last serious piece of news about the film had arrived in 2011, when Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce was hired to work on a screenplay.
However, it seems that he may have been more serious about this than expected, because a new writer has officially boarded Sherlock Holmes 3.
