Kingsman 3 Script Has Been Written Confirms Taron Egerton

  • MovieWeb
Eggsy himself says that Kingsman: The Golden Circle will get the follow-up that was promised. While speaking at Ace Comic Con Midwest, Taron Egerton (Rocketman) confirmed a script for the final installment of Matthew Vaughn's initial Kingsman trilogy has already been written. Although he wasn't allowed to reveal much about Kingsman 3, the actor had this to say about his next stint in the Kingsman suit.

"It's a really neat idea. That plan, at the moment, is that we'd like to do another one, one more time."

When Vaughn chose Egerton as his Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, he was taking a bit of a risk. Taron Egerton was generally unknown at the time, but Kingsman sparked the young actor's career which now includes popular projects like Sing and its upcoming sequel, Netflix's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and Rocketman in which he lended his voice and acting chops to portray music legend Elton John.

Watch Robert Downey Jr. Talk to Animals in New Dolittle Trailer
Robert Downey Jr. has a new set of superpowers — and a pair of mutton chops — in the first look at his latest movie role.

The Avengers star may have packed away his Iron Man suit, but now Downey Jr. has a knack for talking to members of the animal kingdom in Dolittle.

Based on a series of 1920s children’s books by Hugh Lofting, Dolittle follows the famed fictional physician, now a widower who keeps his animal friends as company, as he rediscovers his courage on a quest to find a cure for an ailing queen.

‘Official Secrets’ Review: Dir. Gavin Hood (2019)

Sometimes a film stumbles into its timeliness with poetic coincidence. With all the talk of whistleblowers currently dominating the news, albeit the other side of the pond this time, there’s something rebellious and empowering about Official Secrets arriving at this moment. It’s also a film that highlights the importance of a well-crafted script and a director who knows how to compose tension. In the wrong hands this could have been stale and dull, instead, under the watchful eye of Gavin Hood, it’s a brilliantly aggravating film that ignites a revolt within you, but keeps you calm and focused.

Universal Renames Robert Downey Jr. Vehicle To ‘Dolittle’, Issues First Trailer

  • Deadline
Update: Universal Pictures has renamed The Voyage Of Doctor Dolittle to simply Dolittle. The film will still be released wide on its previously announced date of January 17, 2020. The studio also issued the production’s first trailer.

The move marks yet another shuffling for the film, which originally was slated for an April 12, 2019 release date, then moved to January 17, 2020, which is the four-day Mlk weekend.

The move is seen as an effort to capitalize on early winter rolling vacations overseas; not to mention, Q1 has served as a great play period for family fare, including Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle holdover business, which generated close to 60% of its $404.5 million domestic box office after Christmas, not to mention other titles like Disney’s Moana and Fox’s Night at the Museum 1 and 3, which legged out overseas in the January play period.

"We have no choice but to embark on this perilous journey..." Universal Pictures has debuted the magical first official trailer for the new Dolittle movie, titled in full (originally) The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.

Robert Downey Jr. is setting sail with some furry friends in the first trailer for “Dolittle,” Universal Pictures’ reimagining of the classic story about a man who could speak to animals.

“We have no choice but to embark on this perilous journey,” he says.

Along the way, he encounters a host of perilous dangers, including a ferocious tiger who cals him “lunch,” backed up by his animal friends — a gorilla, an ostrich and an octopus to name a few.

The film has undergone several shuffles in recent months, with Universal Pictures renaming the flick Dolittle” in place of its original title “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.” The film was also moved from its original April 12, 2019 release date to the longer Martin Luther King holiday weekend.

Robert Downey Jr. would rather talk to animals than people as the new Dr. Dolittle. But, as seen this official “Dolittle” trailer released Sunday, he is soon forced to leave his hideaway and set sail across the sea to a mythical island.

Dolittle Trailer: Robert Downey Jr. Can Talk to Animals

  • MovieWeb
Dolittle Trailer: Robert Downey Jr. Can Talk to Animals
Robert Downey Jr. is talking to animals in the first trailer for the long-awaited Dolittle trailer. The movie is Downey Jr.'s first major role since this year's massively successful Avengers: Endgame. Additionally, this is the actor's first non-Marvel Cinematic Universe project since 2014's The Judge. Taking on the role of Tony Stark for the past eleven years has been an all-consuming journey for Downey Jr., though he was remarkably able to make Dolittle during that time.

The Dolittle trailer finds Robert Downey Jr. as the famous Dr. going through some rough patches and showing his magical connection with the animals. Fans have been waiting a long time to see Rdj in this role and it doesn't look like he'll be letting anyone down. Visually, the movie looks like it will have to be seen on the big screen to truly appreciate all of the special effects and CGI. With that being said,

Robert Downey Jr. And Tom Holland Reunite In First Dolittle Trailer

Though the past decade or so of his career has seen him fighting alongside the likes of Thor, Captain America, the Hulk and more in order to protect our planet from all kinds of enemies, Robert Downey Jr.’s schedule has finally cleared up and the actor is wasting no time in moving onto some non-Marvel projects.

We haven’t seen him in a role other than Iron Man in quite a while, but that’ll soon change as Rdj will be back on our screens early next year in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle. Or at least, that’s what it was originally titled. Now, however, according to the film’s first trailer – which you can catch up above – it’ll go by just Dolittle. And yes, this is the same Dolittle who talks to animals that we already met in the 1967 original and then again in the 1998 remake with Eddie Murphy.

Harry Potter Star Says He Doesn’t Want Anyone Else Playing Voldemort

Though all seven books have already been used up, there’s always talk of there potentially being more Harry Potter movies down the line. After all, J.K. Rowling did co-write The Cursed Child stage play, which extends the story of the Boy (now Man) Who Lived. Ralph Fiennes, star of the original movies, doesn’t think any more are likely to happen, but if they do, he has one message to other actors: hands off Lord Voldemort.

ComicBook.com caught up with Fiennes at New York Comic-Con and asked him about the possibility of more Potter on the big screen. As part of his answer, the British star made clear that he wants to be the one to get the call to come back and play Harry’s nose-less nemesis.

“I will be very possessive about Voldemort, though. I don’t want anyone else playing Voldemort.”
