With summer blockbuster season 2017 in full swing, and with Fast & Furious 8 speeding over the $1bn mark already, a bunch of filmmakers are furiously putting together their films for release this time next year (or thereabouts). Here, as things stand, is the state of summer blockbuster season 2018. We’ve veered towards UK release dates on the whole, but as always, things can quickly change.
Also, we’ve not included unnamed films: Universal, for instance, has reserved a slot for one of its classic monster universe movies, but not told anybody what it is yet. As more information pops up, we’ll keep this list up to date…

Phil Lord and Chris Miller will direct. »
Oh, Disney. Growing up in the ‘90s, Disney pretty much ruled my world. However, when the ’00s came around, the company took quite the dip in quality. Rather than focus on telling great stories, they shifted their strategy to a quick buck. Over time, that strategy started to fall flat, and in the age of innovation, they found themselves scrambling to regain their credibility.
Not anymore. Between the renaissance of their animated films, their great live-action fare, Marvel, LucasFilm, and Pixar, they are pretty much a one-stop shop for all things magical. In case you needed a reminder of the iron grip Disney has on your childhood, your children’s childhood, and everyone else in between, the studio decided to announce a whole lot of release dates just to remind you.

Leo Matsuda — a longtime animator and storyboard artist who made a splash with the short film he wrote and directed, Inner Workings, which played before Disney's Moana and was shortlisted for an Oscar — has signed with Wme and Gotham Group for representation.
In addition to Inner Workings, Matsuda also directed the short PreKissToric Times. He spent years working for Disney, where he worked as a story artist on such huge studio hits as Zootopia, Big Hero 6 and Wreck-It Ralph. He received an Annie Award nomination for storyboarding in an animated feature for his work on Wreck-It Ralph.

After winning the Oscar for 2014’s “Big Hero 6,” producer Roy Conli was lured to what seems to be a far-flung project: a Disneynature doc, “Born in China,” which explores the life cycles of wild pandas and other native Chinese wildlife. However, he said that it was less about the animals and more about their collective capacity to communicate complex emotions and ideas.
“I’ve always loved the structure of multiple stories,” said Conli, a longtime Disney Animation executive who famously mounted the premiere of “Angels in America” at the Mark Taper Forum in 1992. “There are multiple characters that you need to fall in love with, and they will add up to one story. That was the same with this. You had five species, but you concentrated on three animal families.”

Dancing With the Stars' Disney Night did not disappoint!
From Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy's badass Paso Doble inspired by Mulan, to Sharna Burgess' adorably fun Wreck-It Ralph choreography for Bonner Bolton, the stars showed off their playful sides for a truly magical Monday in the ballroom.
Now, Et's breaking down the best moves from week five of the dance competition show!
Dance highlight: While Emma's choreography was breathtaking once again, the true highlight began at the 1:19 mark, when Rashad assisted his partner into two beautiful spins on the floor, one in which he was holding only her right arm and leg. A delightful, strong way to end the routine, coming off their nearly perfect score from last week's Most Memorable »

The 31-year-old admitted to Et’s Nischelle Turner that the gossip about her dating life does get frustrating.
“This journey isn't about that, this show isn't about my dating life, it's about Bonner right here and what we're doing out on that floor every day, so I want to have everyone be so proud and impressed and inspired by what he did today,” she told Et of her partner Bonner Bolton.
Bolton, in fact, was one of her rumored romances, as is model and actor Pierson Fode. So why all the interest in her personal life?
“I have no idea,” Burgess told Et. “Possibly because »
In the highly likely event that you’re still recovering from last week’s Most Memorable Year theme, Dancing With the Stars followed that up on Monday with the perfect chaser: Disney Night. (Thanks, corporate synergy!)

Below, let’s run through the evening’s strongest and weakest dances:

Following his scene-stealing role in “Kong: Skull Island,” John C. Reilly has returned with a rather different project: the music video for Lil Dicky’s “Pillow Talking.” Clocking in at nearly 11 minutes, the video takes the form a post-coital conversation between Dicky and an unnamed woman (Taylor Misiak), who debate everything from the military to dinosaurs. Reilly has a cameo as God amid the stream-of-consciousness oddity, because why not? Watch below.
Occasionally tense, the conversation reveals that a.) the two don’t know each other especially well and b.) they don’t agree on much either. Reilly appears twice, talking about Earth and saying that “This shit is boring. It needs more shit” and “I’ma put dinosaurs on this bitch.” The song is taken from “Professional Rapper,” Dicky’s debut album.

Spider-mcu No More?
After scoring massive praise in Captain America: Civil War and a lot of hype for his solo outing Spider-Man: Homecoming, it appears Spidey’s time in the McU will be short-lived. In an interview, former Sony president Amy Pascal noted that their partnership with Disney could come to an end after the Homecoming sequel. “One of the things that I think is so amazing about this experience is that you don’t have studios deciding to work together to make a film very often,” Pascal explained. “In fact it may never happen again, after we do the sequel. Because Sony, and Disney, and Marvel all decided that the right thing to do was to allow Peter Parker and Spider-Man to be in the McU and to work with the Marvel guys and have them produce this film”. This would make a lot of sense, given the announcement »
