The Last Jedi Has 4 Big Cameos All in One Scene
The Disney era of Star Wars has seen A-list celebrities doing cameos in small roles, which have been pretty fun for fans. Unfortunately for Disney and Lucasfilm, because these are such big celebrities, it's been tough for them to keep things secretive. It's been no different with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as some of the big names who are going to cameo have already leaked online. Now we have word that an entire group of major celebrities will all cameo together in a single scene.

Warning: minor spoilers ahead for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Previously, it had been revealed that the royals, Prince Harry and Prince William, were both going to be making cameos in the latest chapter of the Skywalker saga. It was also revealed pretty early on that Tom Hardy was also going to be making an appearance in the movie, as well as singer Gary Barlow.

Jessica Chastain Game To Play Adult Bev For New Line Horror Sequel It: Chapter Two

Soon after Andy Muschetti’s horror reboot began raking in the box office cash – It‘s lifetime total is now simmering around $677 million (!) – and New Line and Warner Bros. issued the go-ahead for a sequel, it didn’t take long before the Internet dreamed up a wishlist of big-name stars for the adult Losers Club.

And so, as Bill Hader (Richie) and John Krasinski (Ben) were tossed into the proverbial hat for It: Chapter Two, Beverly Marsh quickly boiled down to a two-horse race between Amy Adams (Justice League) and Jessica Chastain. Neither Adams nor Chastain have been approached about a potential deal, but when Screen Rant caught up with the latter, the Molly’s Game actress revealed her desire to reunite with Andy and Barbara Muschetti.

Amy Sedaris on the Biggest Challenge in Modern Comedy and Why Michael Shannon is So Darn Funny

Amy Sedaris on the Biggest Challenge in Modern Comedy and Why Michael Shannon is So Darn Funny
Amy Sedaris is a comedy legend thanks, in part, to Jerri Blank. When Sedaris was in her mid-30s, she originated the “Strangers With Candy” role, playing a 46-year-old high school freshman who looked like she was pushing 60. She was “a boozer, a user, and a loser,” and it showed.

Now, Jerri still shows herself in ways good and not so good.

“[Today people] recognize you from Jerri, which means I’m starting to look like Jerri Blank,” Sedaris said in an interview with IndieWire. “So [that] just makes you feel old.”

But with fake age comes real experience. Though her most famous character barely starts to tell the story of an acclaimed sketch performer, playwright, advice columnist, and author, the series and its effect on modern comedy is undeniable.

The ‘Halloween’ Franchise Ranked From the Worst to Best Slash

The ‘Halloween’ Franchise Ranked From the Worst to Best Slash
There was no way to predict that a low-budget, independent horror movie with a no-name cast would go on to become one of the most influential films in cinematic history. But 40 years ago, John Carpenter built the framework for one of the most successful franchises ever and helped create the “slasher” genre with the 1978 smash Halloween.

In the ensuing years, Michael Myers (aka The Shape) became one of culture’s preeminent boogeymen, Carpenter’s haunting theme continued to set an ominous mood and the fictional town of Haddonfield dealt with a serious body count problem. While the motivations for Michael’s actions grew more convoluted, he remained a terrifying force four decades later.

Now, with a new Halloween in the works from director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride, featuring original star Jamie Lee Curtis as the ultimate survivor, Et decided it was time to look back on the franchise to determine which film is a dull

10 Future A-List Actors Who Made Horror Movies
We all have to start somewhere, right? Despite its history of cinema classics and major box office success, the horror genre is often maligned as somehow less worthy of respect than other types of films. For whatever reason, it's not as easy to get an A-list actor to headline a horror movie as it should be. But beggars can't be choosers. Plenty of Oscar-nomintaed thespians had no problem making horror flicks on the way up. Today, we're looking at 10 future A-List actors who made horror movies before they became big time celebrities.

Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger

There may be no greater example of the phenomenon we're talking about here than the fourth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, which starred two future A-list actors and is demonstrative of the shrewd and cynical strategies of Hollywood. In 1994, relative unknowns Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger had already been in Dazed and Confused

Gore Verbinski is in talks to direct “Gambit,” Channing Tatum’s “X-Men” spinoff for Fox.

Tatum is producing with partner Reid Carolin through their Free Association production company, along with Simon Kinberg. “Gambit” has been in development for several years at Fox with Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman previously attached as directors.

Charlize Theron-Seth Rogen Comedy ‘Flarsky’ Gets Release Date

Charlize Theron-Seth Rogen Comedy ‘Flarsky’ Gets Release Date
Lionsgate has set a Feb. 8, 2019, release date for Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen’s comedy “Flarsky” from “50/50” director Jonathan Levine.

Lionsgate handled distribution on two previous Levine films — “50/50,” which starred Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and “Warm Bodies.”

Rogen will play an unemployed journalist named Fred Flarsky, battered by his own misfortune and self-destructive ways, who endeavors to pursue Theron’s character — his childhood crush and babysitter, who now happens to be one of the most powerful and unattainable women on earth. The script is written by veteran comedy scribe Dan Sterling.

Rogen’s Point Grey Pictures, Theron’s Denver and Delilah Films, and Good Universe are the production companies. The movie is currently in pre-production.
