‘Kingsman 3’ Set For Nov. 2019 Return With Matthew Vaughn On Board

‘Kingsman 3’ Set For Nov. 2019 Return With Matthew Vaughn On Board
Manners maketh man. And writer/director Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman are going to make the third Kingsman film.

The third ‘Kingsman’ film – now simply called Kingsman 3 – is set for theaters on November 8, 2019 in what’s being called the capper to the previous two-part series.

Reports on just who will be involved are mixed. Some stories indicate no actors are on board, but others claim Taron Egerton will reprise his role as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin. Fans are hoping Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges from the prior film will also appear.

The British Goldman has hinted that there will be third installment in the past, but this is the first confirmation. There are also rumors of a prequel in the works to the beloved action film, although its second chapter, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, killed off much of the secret organization.

New 'Overlord' Images and Synopsis Reveal More of Bad Robot’s WWII-Set Horror

New 'Overlord' Images and Synopsis Reveal More of Bad Robot’s WWII-Set Horror
We're still a few months out from the bonkers-looking WWII-set horror flick Overlord — which is definitely not a Cloverfield movie, or so we're told — but Paramount and Bad Robot released a whole bunch of new photos and a synopsis that shed a little more light on this dark thriller.

These batch of images gel with the over-the-top insanity promised by that first AC/DC-set trailer, with a troupe of American paratroopers crash-landing in a Nazi-occupied France that is 100% more horrifically mutated than they could have imagined. The J.J. Abrams

'Kingsman 3' Confirmed for 2019; Matthew Vaughn Will Write and Direct
20th Century Fox has officially confirmed that a third Kingsman film is on its way — currently slated for a November 8, 2019 release date — with Matthew Vaughn back on board to both write and direct.

The film would follow up 2017's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, an odd duck of a spy-satire/action-thriller that was met with a lukewarm critical reaction but took in just about about as much as Kingsman: The Secret Service at the box office.

Tessa Thompson Heads to ‘Avengers 4’ Set in Atlanta With Chris Hemsworth

Tessa Thompson Heads to ‘Avengers 4’ Set in Atlanta With Chris Hemsworth
Perhaps the most notable superhero absence in “Avengers: Infinity War,” after actual Avengers members Ant-Man and Hawkeye, was that of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who was one of the leads in “Thor: Ragnarok.” “Ragnarok,” notably, ended right before “Infinity War” began, so it was kind of a big deal that she wasn’t even mentioned.

Valkyrie isn’t dead, of course — that much was confirmed by the Russo brothers and “Infinity War” screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely on the “Infinity War” audio commentary. Since Thanos only killed half of the Asgardians in his ambush, that must mean that either she’s with the half who survived or she left before Thanos’ ship ambushed them.

Whatever the explanation, there is now reason to believe that Valkyrie is going to show up in “Avengers 4.” While her appearance in the film has not been confirmed officially and likely won’t be for a while,

A Look at Ecam Incubator Documentary Project ‘The Garcias’

San Sebastian — Part of The Screen’s Incubator – a new initiative from Madrid-based film school Ecam intended to promote the production of feature films and develop emerging talent – Paco Nicolás’ “The Garcias” received a €10,000 grant to be used in the production of the family reunion-themed documentary.

In Spain series like “The Middle” and “The Goldbergs” dominate the daytime airwaves, with “The Simpsons” occupying an arguably larger part of modern Spanish culture than it does in the States – for decades “Los Simpson” has been on every day, year round during Spain’s famous siesta hour.

That penchant for family entertainment representing a bygone era is something that Nicolás will look to tap into with his found-footage documentary “Los Garcia.” That and the ever-present meme of recreated family photos mixed with last year’s Goya and Karlovy Vary winner for best documentary, the similarly-Spanish “Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle.

‘Overlord’ Review: Bad Robot Delivers a Thrilling Nazi Monster Mash | Fantastic Fest

Overlord is not a Cloverfield movie. Let’s just get that out of the way. The latest Bad Robot film steers clear of their big name monster franchise in favor of another kind of monster: Nazis. And not just any old Nazis (though there are plenty of those) — mad scientist Nazis, who use captured soldiers and helpless local villagers as test subjects in their horrible experiments, creating super-strong, super-grotesque mutants in hopes of building thousand-year soldiers to last their thousand-year empire. Classic Nazi stuff. The film sets the stage with a banger of an aerial action …

Ecam Incubator Participant Daniel Castro On Catfish Comedy ‘Old Man In Love’

Madrid — As far as film genres go, comedies often have the greatest difficulties in traveling abroad and translating in a meaningful way to foreign audiences. But, by the very nature of its narrative, Daniel Castro’s “Old Man in Love,” and upcoming project and part of the Ecam Incubator for Spanish films in development, will to buck that trend.

An intercontinental “love story,” “Old Man in Love” follows a too-trusting professor in his 70s across the globe as he looks to track down the four-decades-younger girl of his dreams.

Carlos, who teaches at the University of Navarre – one of Spain’s most prestigious and conservative Catholic universities – has all but given up on finding love as his online endeavors to court someone less than half his age have so far proved fruitless.

Just as his hope runs out, the genial geriatric is contacted by a young swimsuit model in Argentina named Claudia,

San Sebastian: Exploring Teen Angst in Brazil’s ‘Butterfly Diaries’
Participating in San Sebastian’s Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum, Paula Kim’s debut feature “Butterfly Diaries” is pitched along the lines of controversial series “13 Reasons Why” and Marti Noxon’s anorexia drama “To the Bone,” both on Netflix.

‘Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown’ Premiere: The Host Who Was Tough, Shy, and Taught the World to Be a Good Guest
The September 22 world premiere of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” at this year’s Tribeca TV fest wasn’t a memorial. While the series won the Emmy for Outstanding Informational Series or Special just a few weeks ago, it did so under the burden of Bourdain’s recent suicide. However, the Season 12 opener, “Kenya,” was a joyful episode that focused on Bourdain and “United Shades of America” host W. Kamau Bell.

In the episode, the pair explored the country’s capital of Nairobi as well as the savannah and more rural communities, with memorable sequences in which Bell’s dining options included cow’s blood beverage and a goat’s eyeball.

At the Q&A following the premiere, director Morgan Fallon told Bell that his rookie status was an advantage: “What’s nice from, a scumbag producer point of view, is that we knew that you were going to eat anything

H. Jon Benjamin Tweets ‘Me So Horny’ Joke, Quickly Apologizes

H. Jon Benjamin Tweets ‘Me So Horny’ Joke, Quickly Apologizes
H. Jon Benjamin, famous for his voice work on shows like “Archer” and “Bob’s Burgers,” is used to making people laugh. So it probably came as a surprise when his latest attempt at a Twitter joke fell flat: “Quick idea for the name of a tea shop- ‘ooh me so horny, me love you oolong time tea shop.’” The tweet has thus far received more than 100 responses, most of them negative — a Twitter phenomenon often referred to as The Ratio.

Originating as a line in Stanley Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket,” “me so horny” has been used as an Asian stereotype in the decades since the film’s release. Following the reactions to his tweet, Benjamin apologized within hours: “Sorry I offended many. I agree this ‘joke’ was lazy and incompetent and formulated quickly while making a cup of oolong tea,” he wrote.
