This year, Harrison Ford became a dog in the animated sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2. Next year, he’s teaming up with a dog for an adventure that will see them battling the elements during the middle of the Gold Rush in the 1890s.
The Call of the Wild is based on Jack London’s classic novel of the same name and follows a dog named Buck as he is uprooted from a spoiled life as a domestic dog in California and turned into a mail delivery sled dog in the Alaskan Yukon. That’s right, the dog is actually the star of this movie, and Harrison Ford comes along to further the story. Watch The Call of the Wild trailer below. Read More »

Joker is a huge hit, probably headed towards several Oscar nominations, and just became the first R-rated movie to cross $1 billion at the worldwide box office. That’s the kind of attention studios thrive on, and want more of. And sure enough, after weeks of speculation, it looks like a Joker sequel is officially happening. Director Todd Phillips pitched Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich on an idea to develop Joker-style origin stories for multiple DC character, and while Emmerich didn’t fully go for the idea, Phillips did get the rights to develop a film on at least one character. Meaning Phillips is now working on both a Joker sequel (which will likely bring back Joaquin Phoenix) and another Joker-influenced DC origin film.
Update: Deadline is saying THR is incorrect, and that “Multiple sources said no such October 7 meeting between Phillips and Emmerich occurred, and that Phillips hasn’t even considered overseeing other DC character films.” So who is correct here?
Update #2: Variety decided to get in on the action now, too. They say the original story is half-true: Warners is exploring a sequel with Todd Phillips, but nothing has been finalized and no scripts are currently being written. As for the report of a separate DC character origin film? That’s false, at least according to Variety. The original story continues below

Following the box office performance of The Princess and the Frog (which was only seen as a disappointment thanks to Avatar stealing all of the attention), Walt Disney Animation Studios decided to abandon traditional 2D animation and charge into the computer animated arena with a new take on Rapunzel. However, eager to move away from the Disney princess moniker that didn’t appeal to boys as much, they called the movie Tangled, and it was the beginning of a whole new creative era for Disney.
Unfortunately, since Tangled was the first, it wasn’t quite as polished as the movies that would follow, like Frozen and Moana. In fact, while some of the characters and writing might be a little more clever in some respects, as the Tangled Honest Trailer will point out, the soundtrack isn’t exactly full of the most memorable tunes, even with music composed by Disney legend Alan Menken.
