Exclusive: Warner Bros and Guy Ritchie have set French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey to play Guinevere in Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur. The casting comes after the studio set Sons Of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur.
Berges-Frisbey was in the cast of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She was born in Spain, grew up in France and started on French TV in 2007. She had to learn English when she was cast as the mermaid Syrena in the Pirates blockbuster. Since Joby Harold wrote this to span as many as six installments, this is potentially a major star-making role for the young actress.
Berges-Frisby is repped by CAA, Untitled and Artmedia.

Into The Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.
Get your first look at the brand new poster from Disney.
This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.
Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, »

Disney's upcoming live-action musical, Into the Woods, based on a play of the same name has revealed an all new movie poster that features Meryl Streep's villainous Witch character front and center. Come inside to check it out!
To be honest...this is just kind of a boring poster. While it's menacing and shows off the danger that the Witch poses, with the snarly looking woods as well, it also does very little to attract people. If I were to see this in the theater, I wouldn't automatically think, "I want to know more about this movie." That's not to say that it's horrible by any means, it's just not all that exciting either.

Disney has premiered the first poster for Rob Marshall's new musical, Into the Woods, based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim. Featuring a massive ensemble cast, Into the Woods surrounds a baker and his wife's quest to break a witch's curse in order to start a family. Along the way, they encounter several well-known fairy tale characters, and together they learn what happens after "happily ever after". The film stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, Emily Blunt, Tracey Ullman, Anna Kendrick and Billy Magnussen. This is one film that very well could have a big effect on the Oscar race once it arrives on December 25, though Marshall hasn't exactly had the best track record since Chicago as Memoirs of a Geisha and Nine fell rather flat and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was... well... you know.

London's incredibly varied architecture - encompassing Shakespearean and Victorian-era buildings, secret underground tunnels and modern skyscrapers - has seen the city double for everything from 19th century Paris in Les Misérables to outer space in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Digital Spy takes a tour of the capital to find out more…
1. Millennium Bridge, Thames Embankment
We're used to seeing tourists snapping photos and commuters walking briskly across this distinctive bridge, but on August 12 last year, onlookers stopped and gasped as a group of exotically-attired aliens ran across the suspension bridge. This was no prank or stag do, but rather a scene from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which can currently be seen taking the international box office by storm. Incredibly, the bridge was doubling for outer space, albeit with a CGI generated backdrop to hide St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern.

Mexico has named Cantinflas as its Best Foreign Language Film Oscar submission, just in time for the film’s theatrical push into Mexico and Latin America this month. The biopic of famed Mexican comedian Mario Moreno aka Cantinflas was released by Pantelion in the U.S. on August 29 and has grossed $5 million stateside in 400 theaters. Director Sebastian del Amo co-wrote the script with Edui Tijerina. Óscar Jaenada (The Losers, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) stars opposite Michael Imperioli in the tale of the oddly mustachioed icon who rose from humble beginnings, earned the nickname “The Charlie Chaplin of Mexico,” and helped launch the country’s golden age of cinema.
Pantelion’s been pushing Cantinflas hard for months, attaching its trailer to screenings of studio blockbusters and marketing to multigenerational Latino audiences. The film opens in Mexico on September 16 via Videocine Distribucion and will release in 14 Latin American countries during the next few months. »

Alongside Johnny Depp, Kiera Knightley and Geoffrey Rush. Orlando Bloom was a key piece to the puzzle when the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise first launched back in 2003 with The Curse of the Black Pearl, but his tenure with the franchise seemed to have ended after the second sequel, At World's End, in 2007. Director Rob Marshall helmed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides back in 2011, and while both Depp and Rush were back in character as Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa, respectively, Bloom (and Knightley) were left off the guest list. We assume the Lord of the Rings star had completed his tenure with the franchise, but now that the fourth sequel is starting to get back into active development, it sounds as though it's possible Bloom could return as well. This story comes to us from the Daily Mail, which nabbed a few quotes from Orlando Bloom about »
Orlando Bloom seemingly retired from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise with the third film, "At World's End". He and Keira Knightley's characters were replaced by two other youngsters in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" who didn't quite capture the public's attention.
Now, appearing at Brisbane's Oz Comic Con over the weekend, Bloom said there's actually been talks about his character of Will Turner returning in the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales":
"There have certainly been some discussions about it and I'm open to it."
It's not clear just how far or formal those discussions have been though. He did use the panel to gush over his time filming the previous movies:
"That whole experience working with Johnny (Depp) and (director) Gore (Verbinski) was really amazing for me. I had a great time working with Johnny, one of the reasons I »

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides made about $1.05 billion worldwide in theaters back in 2011, so you’d best believe that Walt Disney Pictures is interested in making Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (a.k.a. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales). The Mouse House recently set the swashbuckling blockbuster for a Summer 2017 release date and began to hammer out a deal that will allow the movie to be shot in Australia at a lower cost than would be required to film elsewhere.
Johnny Depp is lined up to reprise his famous role as pirate Captain Jack Sparrow in the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film installment, but ...

While Orlando Bloom, who starred as Will Turner, helped turn Pirates of the Caribbean into one of cinema's biggest franchises, starting with Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl in 2003 and continuing on in 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the actor was suspiciously absent from Disney's 2011 adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. That may not be the case with Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (tentatively titled Dead Men Tell No Tales), as the actor reveals he's had discussions about returning, and is open to the idea.
"There have certainly been some discussions about it and I'm open to it."
The wording of his comments leave it unclear »
We already know Johnny Depp is signed on to return as Captain Jack Sparrow for Disney's fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which was previously revealed to be called Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Keith Richards will also return as his father Captain Teague. But it sounds like one more familiar face might be around, one that was missing from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Yahoo UK recently spoke to Orlando Bloom about the possibility of returning as Will Turner in the high seas adventure series, and he said, "There have certainly been some discussions about it and I'm open to it." Speaking about the franchise, Bloom fondly remembered: "That whole experience working with Johnny and Gore [Verbinski] was really amazing for me. I had a great time working with Johnny, one of the reasons I jumped at the opportunity was because Johnny was involved. »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best.
On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Exclusive: MGM is negotiating with Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin to star in the Thea Sharrock-directed Me Before You, the adaptation of the Jojo Moyes best-selling novel. Karen Rosenfelt is producing Sharrock’s feature debut. MGM is partnered with New Line and Warner Bros, which has dated the movie for August, 2015 release.
Clarke, whose breakout came playing the mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s Game Of Thrones, is playing Sarah Conner in Terminator: Genisys, and she is also going to star with Nicholas Hoult in Go Down Together, the Michael Suscy-directed revisionist take on Depression Era outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Though a newcomer, Claflin’s track record is pretty remarkable: the final three The Hunger Games films, Snow White and The Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
