7 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

So looking at Jemaine Clement and Mick Jagger there are some startling similarities, especially in their voices. as most of you should know, shame on those that don’t, Mick Jagger is the main vocalist for the Rolling Stones and is a rock legend in his own right. Jemain Clement is the voice of  Nigel in Rio and Rio 2.  He’s also the voice of the giant crab in Moana.  Clement also looks a lot like Benecio Del Toro when you really look at him. When you hear the two side by side it’s kind of amazing to hear how alike

'Annabelle' Sequel Eyes $30+ Million Opening as Summer Slow Down Continues

10 August 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Saturday Am Update: WB and New Line's Annabelle: Creation is off to an excellent start, bringing in an estimated $15 million on Friday (including $4 million from Thursday previews) on its way to a weekend around $35 million if not more. It's also great news for director David F. Sandberg who helmed last year's hit Lights Out for WB. That film went on to gross nearly $150 million worldwide on a budget under $5 million. The film received a "B" CinemaScore, matching the score for the first film. Open Road's The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature is performing even worse than expected, delivering an estimated $3 million on Friday. This is already shaping up to be the lowest opening for a film playing in over 4,000 theaters by a wide margin. Currently the worst opening for an opening that size belongs to The Emoji Movie with $24.5 million, but with the $9 million or so Nut Job 2 is »

20 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been over five years since audiences first fell in love with scene-stealer Amandla Stenberg in “The Hunger Games,” but the actress is officially ready for her own starring role. That’s because Stenberg’s new film “Everything, Everything” just released this weekend.

The film — based on the 2015 novel by Nicola Yoon — stars Stenberg as Maddy, a young woman who has been diagnosed with the genetic disorder Scid and is forced to spend her life indoors in a sterilized and controlled environment. But after falling in love with the neighbor boy (Nick Robinson, “Melissa & Joey), Maddy begins to question the veracity of her disease, only to discover her mother (Anika Noni Rose) may have some secrets of her own.

Ferdinand Trailer Stars John Cena as a Big, Happy Bull

28 March 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Blue Sky Studios and 20th Century Fox have debuted the first trailer for Ferdinand, directed by Carlos Saldanha (Rio) and starring the voice of John Cena! This animated adventure is based on the classic 1936 children's tale The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, with illustrations by Robert Lawson. The studio has also released the full poster, along with new photos that showcase the voice cast members alongside their animated characters.

Ferdinand tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. Ferdinand, a little bull, prefers sitting quietly under a cork tree just smelling the flowers versus jumping around, snorting, and butting heads with other bulls. As Ferdinand grows big and strong, his temperament remains mellow, but one day five men come to choose the "biggest, fastest, roughest bull" for the bullfights in Madrid and Ferdinand is mistakenly chosen. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. »

Deadpool 2 Targets Janelle Monae as Domino

8 March 2017 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans of Deadpool have had reason to be very encouraged about the future of the franchise recently. The very first teaser for Deadpool 2 debuted alongside Logan in theaters, which Fox quickly released online, and the reaction has been insanely positive. This Deadpool 2 sneak peek, which is essentially a short film containing no actual footage from the sequel, hints at the arrival of Cable. But there was no mention of Domino, who we know will be in the movie as well. Despite the character's lack of presence over the weekend, we now hear that Janelle Monae is the frontrunner for the role.

On a recent episode of The Hashtag Show, it was reported that Moonlight and Hidden Figures star Janelle Monae is wanted as Domino. It was previously reported that Scandal star Kerry Washington was in the running, and it isn't clear if things didn't work out with her »
