With Game of Thrones coming to an end after eight seasons, star Peter Dinklage is jumping back into the feature film world – this time at Netflix. Dinklage, best known for playing the politically savvy Tyrion Lannister on the HBO fantasy series, will star in Last Sons of America, Netflix’s adaptation of the Boom! Studios post-apocalyptic graphic novel. Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, The Batman), whose production company has a first-look deal with Netflix, is set to produce the new film. Read More »
When it comes to Mission: Impossible, director Christopher McQuarrie and star Tom Cruise are on a roll. The pair have teamed up to deliver two thoroughly entertaining installments of the action spy franchise. In fact, Mission: Impossible – Fallout is arguably the best of them all. Now, the duo are teaming up for two more sequels that will be shot back-to-back and released in consecutive summers in 2021 and 2022. And we already have word on another team member who will be joining them.
Rebecca Ferguson made her debut as the sultry and dangerous MI6 spy Ilsa Faust in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. She also became the first female cast member to recur in the entirety of the franchise when she returned as the character in Fallout last year. The actress recently confirmed that she’ll keep the trend going by being part of Mission Impossible 7. Read More »
Nicolas Cage recently described his upcoming film Prisoners of the Ghostland as the “wildest movie” he’s ever made, and that’s saying something. The film teams him with legendary Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono, director of Why Don’t You Play in Hell? and Suicide Club. Now we have two updates on the project, one good, one bad.
First, the good: Green Room‘s Imogen Poots is joining the cast. Now the bad news: Sion Sono has apparently suffered a heart attack. But reports indicate he’s doing well, and is not in any critical danger. So I guess that’s good news after all.

Before Ben Affleck scored the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. was looking at several actors to take over for Christian Bale as the newest iteration of The Dark Knight. One of the men they considered was Scott Adkins, the martial artist and star of down and dirty direct-to-video action films like Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning.
Years later, the actor’s Batman audition tape has made its way online, and you can watch it below to get a glimpse into an alternate reality in which Adkins ended up wearing the cape and cowl in Batman v Superman. Read More »
Ezra Miller is keeping busy.

Miller has signed on to lead The Mourner, an emotional drama film directed by Casper Kiriya (Casshern).

I’m still shocked that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the second-highest grossing movie in Sony’s history, coming in only behind the James Bond hit Skyfall at the worldwide box office. But audiences ate it up, and the studio has a sequel slated for release this winter with many of the previous film’s cast members coming back for more. Now we can add one additional name to the list of Jumanji 3‘s returning players: Nick Jonas, who played Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough, the avatar of a kid from 1996 who became trapped in the game – much like Robin Williams’ character Alan Parrish in the original movie.

The cast of the Avatar sequels just got a major upgrade. Edie Falco, of The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie fame, will head to Pandora as new character General Ardmore. Falco is a phenomenal actress, and her presence in James Cameron‘s CGI-enhanced world is surely welcomed. It’s not clear which of the sequels Falco will be appearing in – both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 have wrapped filming with the main cast, and while Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are both greenlit, neither have begun filming yet, as Cameron and company are waiting to see if 2 and 3 will make a splash at the box office.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprisingly huge hit at the box office from the end of 2017 and into 2018. The half-sequel, half-reboot raked in over $962 million at the global box office, so another film was inevitable. But it wouldn’t be a proper sequel without a key part of the original cast, and for some reason their deals didn’t close until this week.
Jumanji 2 (or Jumanji 3 for those keeping the real count) will arrive at the end of the year. While we don’t know how the sequel will follow up the last film, we now know that Alex Wolff, Madison Iseman, Ser’Darius Blain, and Morgan Turner will be back as high school kids who got trapped in the video game version of the troublesome board game.

For two seasons, the FX series Legion has focused on David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. In the comics, that’s mostly because he’s the son of Professor Charles Xavier, something that has only been hinted at on the show. We haven’t seen the telepathic mutant appear on the X-Men series yet, but that will change with the show’s third and final season.
Legion has landed Harry Lloyd as Professor X, though the extent of the character’s involvement in the end of the series has yet to be revealed. Lloyd may best be known for his role on Game of Thrones as Viserys Targaryen, the corrupt, doomed brother of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen. Read More »
