The Get Down star Justice Smith is the latest actor to join the ever-expanding cast of Jurassic World 2. The Hollywood Reporter, the outlet that broke the news, didn’t provide any further information about who Smith would be playing in the sequel or the size of his role.
Smith, who is 21 years old, has only appeared in a handful of projects across his short career. Outside of The Get Down, his most high-profile role by far is that of Radar, friend to Nat Wolff’s Quentin, in Paper Towns.

Throughout Spider-Man’s live action adventures, there has always been one element from his costume that has been missing: the classic underarm webbing as seen in artist Steve Ditko’s designs of the first Spider-Man comics. That is about to change, though, as Marvel has revealed Spider-Man will get a suit upgrade that will include the underarm webbing in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
This was announced in Sao Paulo, Brazil at Comic Con Experience 2016 where Marvel held a panel. Marvel’s own Vice President and Executive Director of Digital Media Ryan Penagos was in attendance and live tweeted the panel, describing a clip from Homecoming. The scene seems to take place from Spidey’s point of view as he’s talking with Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan and then Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark opens up a briefcase with an upgrade for the webslinger. The next scene shows Spider-Man leaping off »

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Justice Smith has signed on for a role in Universal Pictures & Amblin Entertainment's upcoming sequel to their 2015 mega-blockbuster Jurassic World. Details on his role are being kept under wraps for the time being, but he's now the third new addition for the hotly anticipated sequel, following Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Rafe Spall (Life of Pi), who both joined early last month. The dinosaur sequel, which is due out June 2018, will once again be headlined by Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol.2) & Bryce Dallas Howard (Black Mirror) - who will reprise their roles as Owen & Claire from the original film - and they probably won't be the only familiar faces as B.D. Wong (Gotham) is also expected to return in some capacity. Production has been slated to begin spring 2017 in England with J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) in the director's chair. »
There’s been an effort to recognize stunt work with its own Academy Award in recent years, and it’s easy to see why in “The Evolution of Stunts with Damien Walters.” Walters, a former gymnast, has performed stunt work in such films as “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “Captain America: The First Avenger” and next month’s “Assassin’s Creed.” Watch a two-and-a-half minute sample of his work below.

The allusive video contains callbacks to several famous movie scenes: the plane flying overhead in “North by Northwest,” the house falling on Buster Keaton in “Steamboat Bill Jr.” and wire-fu reminiscent of “The Matrix” and its predecessors. It begins with comparatively low-key stunts and escalates from there, culminating in the stuntman doing a front flip while on fire.

We've been hearing about the Rocketeer remake for awhile now, which is tentatively called The Rocketeers. It appears that quite a few directors have seen Disney about the movie over the past couple of years, with each pitching their own take. 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg was someone very eager to take on the job. He didn't land it, but he's showing off art he used in his pitch.
Earlier today it was announced that Dan Trachtenberg will be directing the biopic The Secret Life of Houdini, a job he landed on the success of this year's surprise hit 10 Cloverfield Lane. True life drama aside, Dan Trachtenberg is a genre fan at heart. And he jumped at the chance to possibly direct a Rocketeer remake.
The original Rocketeer landed in theaters way back in 1991, and it was a modest hit for Disney. This WWII set story has gained quite a »
Marvel may be taking risks more often in the future, because they are really starting to pay off. Doctor Strange has now grossed more than $600 million worldwide and similar to movies like Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy before it, was considered to be a bit of a risk and was definitely outside the norm for comic book movies. It turns out, audiences like a little bit (or in this case a lot bit) of Strange.
According to Box Office Mojo, Marvel Studios' latest Doctor Strange is just shy of $616 million worldwide, after adding to its total over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Domestically, the movie has already grossed more than $200 million, after adding another $13 million over the weekend. That puts it over other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies like The Incredible Hulk ($135 million}, Captain America: The First Avenger ($177 million), Ant-Man ($180 million) and Thor ($181 million). Worldwide, it has also already passed »
Disney's Moana topped the extended holiday box office with the second largest five-day Thanksgiving opening of all-time and the third largest three-day Thanksgiving opening of all-time, leading a top twelve that grossed a combined $173 million. Moana was, however, the only real success story among new wide releases as Allied and Bad Santa 2 fell short of expectations and Rules Don't Apply delivered the worst wide opening of 2016. Other bright spots are to be found, though, in the likes of holdovers such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Doctor Strange and Arrival as well as a solid expansion for Amazon and Roadside's Manchester by the Sea. At the top, Disney's latest animated adventure Moana delivered an estimated $55.5 million three-day opening and an estimated $81.1 million five-day opening. As already noted, the five-day opening ranks as the second largest Thanksgiving debut ever behind Disney's Frozen ($93.6m five-day) and just ahead of »

The House of Mouse must be pretty happy right about now, as they ruled over the box office this weekend thanks to both Moana and Doctor Strange, with the former taking in $55.5 million and the latter pulling in another $13.4 million. Both of those figures are significant, and here’s why.
In regards to Moana, that weekend gross puts its total five-day debut at a well-deserved $81.1 million, which means it’s now the second-highest Thanksgiving opening of all-time, with only Frozen ahead of it – as that film hit $93.6 million back in 2013. Furthermore, Disney is now the undisputed king of Thanksgiving debuts, as the top 6 all belong to to them.
The good news doesn’t stop there, either, as the studio’s other effort, Doctor Strange, has now brought its worldwide total to over $600 million, making it the biggest single-character launch for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beating out The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger, »

As Doctor Strange continues to rake it in all over the world, Marvel's latest has made history as the highest grossing first solo installment in the McU. The Sorcerer Supreme's first big-screen outing has now amassed $616 million globally, beating the studio's other single-character debuts, Iron Man ($585M), The Incredible Hulk ($263M), Thor ($450M), Captain America: The First Avenger ($370M), and Ant-Man ($519M).

One of the great quests of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, going all the way back to the early days of Phase 1, remains assembling all six of the Infinity Stones. Now that Doctor Strange is out, we know that there is only one remaining Infinity Stone to be found. Or is there? A new, and pretty solid, fan theory suggests it has been right in front of our eyes the whole time.
The theory comes from a guy named Ryne Short, who submitted it to Comicbook.com. He posits that Heimdall, played by Idris Elba in the Thor movies, has the Soul Stone, safely on Asgard. Here is how Ryne Short backs up his theory.
"In Norse mythology, Odin gives him his sight. Heimdall's eyes are orange. In Thor: The Dark World, he is quoted saying he can see all the souls in the nine realms. And in Thor's vision in Age of Ultron, »
Back in August, it was rumoured that Zendaya is portraying the iconic character of Mary Jane Watson in Marvel and Sony’s upcoming Spidey reboot Spider-Man: Homecoming, and that her true identity would be a big reveal in the film.
The Disney Channel star has since suggested that she won’t be portraying a love-interest in the film, and now she has categorically denied the rumour, telling Et that: “I’m not Mary Jane unfortunately, but I am in the movie which is exciting. My character’s name is Michelle. If that’s what everybody wants to think, I’m gonna let people think whatever they want to think.”
Now, it’s entirely possible that Zendaya is misleading us in order to preserve the secrecy, but then again the original report came from El Mayimbe, who is a notorious fibber, so… I guess we won’t know for sure until July. »

Doctor Strange spent two weeks at #1 in North America before being dethroned by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and despite that movie scoring over $200 million worldwide this weekend, things are still looking good for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Sorcerer Supreme. With $17.7 million during its third weekend domestically, Doctor Strange now has a total of $181.5 million, a figure which means it has passed previous origin stories Captain America: The First Avenger, Ant-Man, and Thor. Overseas, the movie earned an additional $26 million to take its global haul to $571.5 million. That means it's now ahead of Ant-Man's $519 million and rapidly closing in on Iron Man's $585.2 million. $100 million of that came from China (no easy feat), and as a result, Doctor Strange has already passed X-Men: Apocalypse's worldwide total of $544 million. Why does that matter? Well, the X-Men franchise features far more recognisable characters and has been established for quite some time, »
After a successful theatrical run, earning $162.1 million domestically and $415.2 million worldwide, Universal debuted Jason Bourne on Digital HD this week, ahead of its Blu-ray and DVD release on December 6. Today we have an exclusive preview that takes fans inside the epic Las Vegas car chase scene. This preview features interview segments with star Matt Damon, director Paul Greengrass, producer Frank Marshall and second unit director Simon Crane.
Simon Crane, a legendary stunt coordinator who has worked on Titanic, Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan before transitioning to a second unit director, reveals in this preview from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment that he can't believe what the city of Las Vegas is letting them get away with. Paul Greengrass reveals that they were allowed to shut down the entire Las Vegas strip, which was filled with several stunt cars and stunt drivers for this thrilling action sequence. Matt Damon reveals in »
While Peter Parker’s first solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has a long way to go before it hits theaters, Marvel Studios will reportedly be releasing footage from the film in about a month’s time. According to Comicbook.com, the very first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming is attached to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is set to make its theatrical bow on Friday, December 16th.
Supposedly, the news comes from unnamed sources close to the production, so while it would make perfect sense for Marvel to debut the trailer alongside what will probably be one of the biggest movies of 2016, nothing is official yet. If the report is true, however, then fans will be getting a trailer for the latest Spider-Man reboot much sooner than expected.
Usually, when a major release attaches its trailer to another major release, the footage actually lands online a »

Last year Universal Pictures relaunched the Jurassic Park franchise with Colin Trevorrow’s box office smash Jurassic World, the first chapter of a new trilogy of movies. It was marketed as a fresh start, as opposed to Jurassic Park 4,. However, with J.A. Bayona gearing up to go into production on the sequel, the director has revealed that he considers the next instalment to be both Jurassic World 2 and Jurassic Park 5.
“I think somehow it’s both,” Bayona told CinemaBlend. “It’s a very good question, and what we’re doing is a sequel to Jurassic World, but it’s definitely the fifth chapter of a longer saga. It’s very interesting. It’s always tricky, but you need to find a balance in what people expect to find, and the new stuff you’re bringing to the story. And I think the story is looking for a connection between »

Disney continued its record-breaking year this weekend as 2016 became the studio's best year at the domestic box office ever. Contributing to that success, of course, is the studio's latest Marvel Studios release, Doctor Strange, which led the weekend box office for the second week in a row, contributing to a weekend in which the top twelve was up 56% compared to the same weekend last year. The weekend's success was a combination of strong holdovers such as Strange and fellow sophomore features Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge, along with newcomers including Arrival and Almost Christmas, all of which helped the top twelve combine for over $150 million. Dropping only 49% in its second weekend, Disney and Marvel's Doctor Strange delivered an impressive $43 million in its second weekend as the film's domestic gross climbs to over $153 million in just ten days of release. Among Marvel's single-character intro features this is the second fastest title to top $150 million domestically, »

Doctor Strange was #1 again this weekend in North America, while moviegoers overseas continue to flock to the critically acclaimed Marvel Studios release. With a current haul of $153 million domestically, its $339.6 million international earnings takes the movie's worldwide total to $492.6 million, an incredible number at this point. A sequel is guaranteed, but still hasn't been announced. Why? Well, Doctor Strange has already managed to pass The Incredible Hulk ($263 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($371 million) and Thor ($449 million). Next up is Ant-Man ($520 million), and as you no doubt already realise, each of those got a sequel (with the exception of The Incredible Hulk, though that's down to complicated rights issues rather than a lack of success at the box office). Doctor Strange will be hurt by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them next week, but that shouldn't stop it from going as high as $650 million - $750 million by the time »
