With production continuing on Aquaman from the Australia set, actor Dolph Lundgren shared a new photo and video through his social media channels. The video was posted to the actor's Snapchat, where we see Dolph on a stunt rig, practicing an underwater scene where he swims up to a certain character, portrayed in the rehearsal by an unidentified man, before pulling up and coming to a stop, coming face to face with him. The video also showcases the actor going back through the footage, to see how his movements look on camera. Unfortunately, the actor isn't in his full King Nereus costume, but hopefully we'll get our first official look at him soon.
On the official Dolph Lundgren Instagram, the actor posted a photo where he's seen wearing a harness for wire work, revealing that wire work is a "good core workout." He's not in full costume here either, but perhaps these rehearsals do indicate that we're getting closer and closer to seeing him on the set in full costume. Still, even if that does happen soon, it's entirely possible that we won't get an official first look at King Nereus. Regardless, this is the first updates we've seen from the set in quite awhile, following a set photo that surfaced last month featuring the first meeting between Aquaman and Mera.
The character of King Nereus is quite a recent one in the DC Comics pantheon, created by DC Films president Geoff Johns and Paul Pelletier, debuting in Aquaman Vol. 7 #19 (June 2013). This character rules an underwater kingdom known as Xebel, the homeland of Mera, who Nereus claims as his own, as he formulates plans to kill Aquaman. While it remains to be seen if this particular story line will be used in the movie, Jason Momoa teased this Aquaman movie will be based on the New 52 reboot comics, which is where King Nereus was introduced. Nereus' primary power is Hydrokinesis, allowing him to manipulate water in any way, although it remains to be seen if the movie version of Nereus will retain the same powers.
The video was posted on Twitter by a user named MAHDi, who revealed that he found this video on Dolph Ludgren's Snapchat. He also refers to the Aquaman secret working title, Ahab, which was revealed back in December, long before filming actually started. Filming is expected to last throughout the summer in Australia, with another report revealing that the production has set up a fall shoot in Italy. There will reportedly be scenes filmed at Castle of Venus in Erice, on the island of Sicily, just off the coast of Italy. No details have been released about what exactly is being filmed there.
While very little about the story has been revealed, director James Wan has confirmed that the DC Comics character Aqualad will not have a presence in this movie. Star Jason Momoa has described Aquaman, which hits theaters on December 21, 2018, as a "coming of age story," while director James Wan has hinted at some romantic adventure elements, comparing this story to the iconic 1980s movie Romancing the Stone, starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. While we wait for more plot details, take a look at the set video and photo for Aquaman.

Michael Douglas’ son Cameron tested positive for marijuana while on probation after being released from prison.
According to court documents obtained by People, Cameron had marijuana in his system during a random drug screening in April.
During a May 9 court hearing, probation officers told the judge that a lab tech accused Cameron of “attempting to manipulate the results” of his drug test by submitting “something that was not his urine.”
More testing was done and a third test came back positive for marijuana, the probation office said.
The probation officers asked the judge to be lenient toward Cameron, saying “relapse »

Page plays a medical student who joins four of her classmates — Luna (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons — in post-midnight experiments of stopping their hearts for short periods of time to get first-hand glimpses of the afterlife. The initial forays seem pleasant enough, but the afterlife seemingly bites back with increasingly disturbing images, based on their sins from the past, and begins intruding their everyday lives.
The word “murderer” appears at the bottom of a pool while one character is swimming. Page’s character sees a car tumbling off a rural bridge into a river and cries “I’m going crazy,” and Luna declares, “This experiment needs to end.”

In a post-Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping world, the concept of Flatliners loses a bit of its edge after viewing Bill Hader’s one-off scene, but nonetheless a remake will arrive this fall. Starring Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, Diego Luna, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons, the first trailer has landed, which followed a group of medical students who experiment with dying, then coming back to life.
“We viewed the original movie as a jumping-off point – and are now telling a re-imagined story with new characters,” producer Michael Douglas tells Fandango, who debuted the trailer. “We have learned more and more about the world, and science keeps answering so many questions and taking us to so many previously unexplored places – but still no one knows what happens after we die. That’s a question we’ll be asking ourselves forever.”

Welcome back to our weekly roundup of what’s going on in theatre, film, and TV. FILMBreakthrough British actor Hannah John-Kamen has just been added to the cast of the upcoming sequel to “Ant Man”. The first film, developed by cult British writer and director Edgar Wright (“Shaun of the Dead”, “Hot Fuzz”) defied expectation to become one of Marvel’s most critically successful films. Tipped to be the second in a much longer franchise, the sequel is called “Ant Man and The Wasp”. Director Peyton Reed (whose debut feature was “Bring It On”) is building a supporting cast around stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas. John-Kamen is also to be seen in Steven Spielberg’s eagerly awaited dystopian blockbuster “Ready Player One” alongside Ben Mendlesohn, comedian T.J. Miller, and fellow Brits Simon Pegg and Mark Rylance. She’ll also play a supporting role in the remake of “Tomb Raider, »
Gambling and the movies have enjoyed a continuing relationship over the years. In the last three decades alone, the motion picture business has seen gambling and casinos play a huge part, not only in location settings, but as a huge part of the story. In this article, we thought we’d take a look at the films that have had their story influenced by gambling and had the narrative affected as a result.
The first film on our list is Rain Man, Barry Levinson’s 1988 Oscar-winner starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman where the two played the long lost Babbett brothers who are united after their father passes away, leaving the family’s fortune to elder sibling Raymond (Hoffman), an autistic savant. Charlie Babbett (Tom Cruise), who wasn’t even aware of his brother’s existence, and has only been left his father’s old car in his will. Learning »

"My favorite memory, I guess [was] doing that crazy kitchen scene," Close said, laughing. "Clinging to Michael Douglas with his underpants around his ankles. I thought that was pretty great."

The cast for Ant-Man 2 has started to grow as the upcoming Marvel production adds its first new major cast member. Black Mirror star Hannah John-Kamen has officially joined the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp, in an unspecified role. Though, it has been noted that she is playing a "key role," which means she won't just have a bit part in the story.
The news comes courtesy of Variety, which is pretty much the next best thing to Marvel Studios making the announcement themselves. That said, the studio has not yet commented on the casting of Hannah John-Kamen, so no further details on her role in Ant-Man and the Wasp are available at the present time. But with production set to ramp up on the sequel next month, we should be hearing more about her part in the near future and, in all likelihood, more additions to the cast. »

One of the very best actors of his generation, Richard Gere has appeared in over 50 films in a career that spans four decades. Famed for his roles in such classics as An Officer and A Gentleman, Pretty Woman and Chicago, the Golden Globe winner has taken on some smaller films in recent years that have gained him a new audience such as Time Out of Mind, Arbitrage and his new film, Norman, which is released in UK cinemas this week.
The film tells the story of Norman Oppenheimer (Gere), a small time “fixer” who becomes close to a young Israeli politician. Over the course of three years, their relationship changes and when the politician becomes a hugely influential world leader, Norman’s life (and his lies) begin to unravel…
Speaking exclusively to HeyUGuys’ Scott Davis, Gere talks about his love of the quirky films he has been involved with recently, »

Back in November, Sony Pictures made a numberof changes to their upcoming release schedule, including a shift of their Flatliners remake release date, pushing it from the summer slot of August 18 to September 29. As it turns out, there was a good reason for that shift, with director Niels Arden Oplev assembling his cast once again for reshoots, which will take place in Toronto next month. If the studio would have kept the old release date, it would have been cutting it too close for comfort.
Iatse 873, the local Toronto chapter of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees union, revealed on their website that Flatliners reshoots have been scheduled in Toronto for eight days, spanning July 24 to August 1. If Sony would have kept the August 18 release intact, the production would have certainly been rushing to get this new footage into the movie in just a few short weeks. Still, even with the release date delay, »
“I won’t be ig-nored, Dan,” said Alex Forest (Glenn Close) to her illicit lover Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) in Fatal Attraction. And so said a large enough number of disconcerted people who were fed up with being ig-nored by the political elite gathered around the Potomac basin to swing the Electoral College vote in favor of Donald Trump. Go fuck yourselves, they said. Bend over, said Trump.
It’s been one lie after another, one alternative fact after another, and one tweet after another since the inauguration, all to assuage the ego of the malignant narcissist who sits in the oval office. His sickophants trip over each other in their eagerness to obfuscate the truth and stay in their own bubbles of power. Erstwhile enemies, thugs, and bullies are welcomed and coddled and credit is taken where it is not due. Everything is upside down and inside out. And »
