Todd Phillips‘s origin movie about Gotham City’s Clown Prince of Crime now has an official title: Joker. Looks like the film took Sean Parker’s advice and dropped the “the.” (It’s cleaner.) They’re moving quickly on this one, because Joker, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, is coming to theaters next year.
Meanwhile, the wait to see Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie just got a couple of weeks shorter. Sony Pictures has shifted some release dates around on its calendar, and the result is a new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood release date, the long-delayed adaptation of The Crow biting the dust for seemingly the hundredth time, and some other additions that fans of Little Women and the Valiant comic Bloodshot might be interested to learn about.

Patient Zero might be such a film – it takes your standard zombie-style outbreak, and adds an interesting new twist to it. It also features Stanley Tucci as a very cool cigarette smoking zombie, so it has that going for it. Watch the Patient Zero trailer below.

Tom Hardy is an Oscar-nominated actor who has already played one of the most famous Batman villains of all time. So why did he sign up to play a Spider-Man villain in a movie that doesn’t even feature Spider-Man? That was the question on many people’s lips when Hardy was first announced to star in Venom, the first film in Sony’s Spider-Man-adjacent cinematic universe.
But while Hardy often prefers to let his work speak for itself (or at least, prefers to speak about it behind a mask), the Venom actor is finally revealing what drew him to this symbiotic antihero.

Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island) has been interested in making a Metal Gear movie for years. He’s totally immersed himself in the world of the popular video game series, even befriending creator Hideo Kojima, and I can’t wait to see what he eventually does with a movie version.
To celebrate the 31st anniversary of the original Metal Gear game, Vogt-Roberts has announced that over the next 31 days, he’s going to be sharing pieces of fan art that might influence the look of the eventual film – assuming it ever makes it into production.
