The Apocalypse is looking pretty good right now.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the Amazon TV series Good Omens, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s whimsical, and very British, apocalyptic comedy. It’s some inspired casting that bodes well for the adaptation of another Gaiman work, who is on a roll right now after American Gods. A good omen for the show, you might say.

Home Again trailer

Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon has another comedy coming up. The last two comedies she starred in, Hot Pursuit and This Means War, weren’t embraced as warmly as Sweet Home Alabama or Legally Blonde, but her next film, Home Again, which is Hallie Meyers-Shyer‘s directorial debut, looks more grounded than her last two comedies.

Below, watch the Home Again trailer.

Home Again Trailer - Reese Witherspoon

Over the past few years, Reese Witherspoon has taken on an eclectic batch of projects like the animated musical comedy Sing, Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Inherent Vice, an Oscar-nominated turn in Wild, and an impressive recent turn in the intriguing HBO series Big Little Lies. But now she’s going back to the well with a new romantic comedy, but this one comes from the offspring of two filmmakers best known for their work in the genre.

Home Again stars Reese Witherspoon as a 40-year old woman named Alice, recently separated from her husband, who decides to start her life anew by moving back to her hometown in Los Angeles. Choosing to live a little more spontaneously, she allows three young filmmakers to crash at her place for a bit, which creates all sorts of new surprising relationships.

Passengers Reviews

Just a few days before Christmas, the sci-fi adventure romance Passengers will hit screens, putting Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence at the center of a story that feels like Titanic in space. While we’ll have to wait a little longer to see this one, some members of the press have already seen the movie ahead of time, and the first Passengers reviews have started to hit the web.

While both Pratt and Lawrence get acclaim for their performances, the consensus seems to be that their talents are wasted on a movie that never quite reaches its full potential, seemingly because director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) doesn’t really know how to keep Jon Spaihts‘ script (which made the Black List years ago) as interesting as it should be on screen.

The Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory hits theaters in just a handful of months and we haven’t seen much. Because Pixar Animation Studios operates almost completely off the grid in Emeryville, we often don’t find out about some of the voice cast until the month or so before release.

But every once in a while an actor slips up and reveals themselves as part of a new Pixar animated feature. This time the actor is Golden Globe-nominated actor Michael Sheen (Kingdom of Heaven, The Queen, Masters of Sex). Hit the jump for more on the Michael Sheen Finding Dory casting.

Conan Wolverine auditions

We all know that Hugh Jackman can’t be Wolverine in the X-Men franchise forever, and we’ve heard that the Australian actor is done with the role that made him a star after he completes a starring turn in the third Wolverine film in 2017. But don’t worry, because he’s also slated to pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse and may have a cameo in Deadpool.

Still, someone has to pick up the claws and replace Jackman eventually. So as part of his stream of Comic-Con themed episodes this week, being shot in San Diego, Conan revealed some of the auditions to play Wolverine with names like Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex,) Hannibal Buress (Neighbors), Patton Oswalt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and more in the running.
