Something Wicked this way…still comes. Two years after a film adaptation of the smash hit stage musical was announced, Universal struck Wicked’s planned 2019 release date from its roster. But the musical’s creator Stephen Schwartz insists that — despite the lack of a release date — the Wicked movie is still in the works.

the girl in the spider's web trailer

Update: We have added the very different international trailer to the post. You can watch it below.

The marketing so far for The Girl in the Spider’s Web have been all about the titular “Girl,” Lisbeth Salander, played in this latest film by The Crown‘s Claire Foy. It’s a smart move, since the role originated by Noomi Rapace in the Swedish films and Rooney Mara in David Fincher’s acclaimed U.S. remake has left big boots to fill for the Emmy-nominated actress.

But the newest The Girl in the Spider’s Web trailer finally introduces us to Lisbeth’s complex web of allies, including the familiar journalist Mikael Blomkvist, played by an unfamiliar face.

if beale street could talk jake gyllenhaal

On top of being an uber-talented actor and the thinking girl’s heartthrob, Jake Gyllenhaal has now ascended to becoming this fall movie season’s behind-the-scenes hero.

Gyllenhaal made headlines earlier this summer for having a part in getting Jamie Lee Curtis to return as Laurie Strode for the Halloween reboot, which helped make it one of the most anticipated movies of the season. And now he’s revealed to have helped get Barry Jenkins‘ adaptation of If Beale Street Could Talk to the big screen — and it happened almost by accident.

a simple favor trailer

Paul Feig has become a major name in comedy over the years. His last four movies have been blockbusters: Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy and yes, Ghostbusters. To some, his latest movie, A Simple Favor, may seem like something different, but it’s more of a Paul Feig movie than you may be expecting.

Based on the novel by Darcey Bell, the story follows single mom Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), who becomes friends with Emily (Blake Lively) when their sons have a playdate. One day, Emily asks Stephanie to pick up her son during a work emergency. Emily never returns, and this is just as surprising to Emily’s husband (Henry Golding). The plot thickens and the trailer definitely teases the film’s twists and turns, but there are still moments for macabre humor and outright silliness.

Feig spoke with /Film by phone about his take on the thriller genre, what a Ghostbusters sequel might have been and development on the Play Doh movie. A Simple Favor is in theaters this Friday.

his dark materials season 2

Update: HBO, perhaps noting that they will soon have an epic fantasy-shaped hole in their schedule when Game of Thrones ends next year, has joined the production of BBC’s His Dark Materials. According to Deadline, the prestigious American network will act as a co-producer on the series, distributing it outside of the United Kingdom. Our original story continues below.

Fans of Philip Pullman‘s formidable fantasy series His Dark Materials have been nervously anticipating the BBC’s lavish adaptation — and for good reason. The first attempt at adapting the ambitious three-book saga about two children who take on the Kingdom of Heaven was an expensive dud that squandered its perfect cast.

Now BBC’s His Dark Materials has recruited a promising cast, an Oscar-winning director, and an equally lofty budget, but the question remains: Will it be good? BBC seems to think so, renewing His Dark Materials for a second season before the show even hits the airwaves. Now that’s something that even an alethiometer couldn’t have foreseen.
