It was announced last September that 'Harry Potter' franchise author J.K. Rowling is working with Warner Bros. on a spinoff titled 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' and now comes word that the studio will follow in the footsteps of the 'Hobbit' franchise by making the exciting new project into an even more exciting new trilogy, milking every bit of of this magic for what its worth.
In what had become an inevitability at this point with the insanely rising box office numbers, Disney's smash hit animated film 'Frozen' has now become the highest grossing animated film of all time, usurping former crown holder 'Toy Story 3,' which held the title since 2010. And judging by these numbers and the love for the film, it doesn't look like 'Frozen' is going to "Let It Go" so easily.
In case you didn't know by now (or if your mom didn't make it a point to tell you, since it's like, one of the only facts she probably prides herself on knowing about actors), Hugh Jackman has some musical theater chops. Oh, you didn't see 'Les Miserables'? The 'Wolverine' and 'X-Men' star recently took that talent to BBC Radio 1 to perform a cover of the 'Les Mis' song "Who Am I," repurposed with lyrics about his on-screen alter ego, Wolverine, and the results are, well, okay, they're pretty charming.
While we're still a few weeks away from the debut of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Sony has premiered another clip from the film, and this one dispenses with all the danger and villainous threats, instead focusing on something a little more lighthearted and fun. Spidey shows off his epic free fall and web-slinging skills in the latest bit of footage, giving us a respite from all the madness -- but don't worry, it's still a lot of action.
A Hobbit in space? Maybe! Dominic Monaghan, known for his role in the 'Lord of the Rings' films and for playing Charlie on the J.J. Abrams-produced hit series 'LOST' has been talking to his old friend about showing up in 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' As a Jedi? He wishes! But he has spoken to the director about a supporting role.
While we've been hearing from star Channing Tatum for some time that 'Magic Mike 2' is in the works, even though original director Steven Soderbergh has since retired from making movies, now we've got something more official to go on: the film has been given a very delightful and appropriate title, and a director has officially been chosen to choreograph all those new dance routines.
Sad news today: beloved character actor James Rebhorn, who most recently starred on Showtime's 'Homeland' as Carrie Mathison's father, has passed away at the age of 65. Rebhorn, who also recently appeared on 'White Collar' and is known for roles on 'Seinfeld' and in 'Scent of a Woman,' passed on Friday afternoon.
Following the tragic death of star Paul Walker, 'Fast and Furious 7' delayed production, but now the film is revving up its engines once again to finish shooting. Questions arose before regarding how director James Wan and his production team would handle Walker's remaining scenes on the film, and now we may have some answers: with the help of a little CGI.
We've been keeping you guys updated on the status of a new Pee-wee Herman movie courtesy of Pee-wee star and creator Paul Reubens over the course of the last couple of years, but now producer Judd Apatow brings us an update himself. While it was previously rumored that Apatow would direct the new film, the funny guy's been keeping busy, but he assures us that the new Pee-wee project is definitely still in the works -- with a script and everything!
Following yesterday's news from Fox that 'Wolverine 3' will be released in 2017, following 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' we now have even more news about the upcoming 'Wolverine' sequel, which seems to be picking up steam pretty quickly even though its release is still a few years away: Hugh Jackman will indeed return as your favorite Canadian mutant, and David James Kelly will be providing the script for the newest installment.
