‘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

Sorry, ‘BoJack Horseman’ Fans: There Probably Won’t Be Another Holiday Special Episode

Sorry, ‘BoJack Horseman’ Fans: There Probably Won’t Be Another Holiday Special Episode
Raphael Bob-Waksberg hopes you enjoyed his 2014 “BoJack Horseman Christmas Special,” just don’t expect another holiday-themed one-off episode anytime soon.

“Broadly, no,” said the creator of the animated Netflix comedy, when asked by TheWrap if he was planning anymore holiday specials. The reason is simply a matter of scheduling. “I only get a couple weeks off per year and if I’m doing an episode between seasons it bridges that vacation time.” He said he “literally did not have a break” between making Season 1 and Season 2 because of the Christmas special.

But he does have an idea for one… if he ever felt like it, that is. And it would include the return of Vincent Adultman, a former boyfriend of Princess Carolyn (Amy Sederis), that is, according to BoJack, “very obviously three kids stacked on top of each other under a trench coat.” In what was a recurring gag through the first two seasons,

‘Game of Thrones’ Baby Names Are on the Rise in England, Especially Arya and Khaleesi

‘Game of Thrones’ Baby Names Are on the Rise in England, Especially Arya and Khaleesi
A girl has a name, and so do at least 343 others. That’s how many newborn girls were named Arya in England last year, according to a BBC report that also tracks the rise in babies named Khaleesi (73) and Tyrion (11), among other kiddos named after famous “Game of Thrones” characters. Maisie Williams’ fan favorite proved to be the most popular by far, perhaps because young Arya Stark is universally beloved and her name is easier to spell than Daenarys.

The study also notes that 2017 was the biggest year on record for girls named Sansa, though an exact figure isn’t given. In addition to “Thrones,” “Moana” and “Star Wars” exerted their influence as well: Seven little girls were named after the Disney princess, 149 were named Leia, and 21 were named Rey; Kylo was big among boys, with 70 carrying the moniker of the latest “Star Wars” villain.

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,

San Sebastian — Chile’s Manufactura de Películas is teaming with Spain’s Polar Star Films, Argentina’s Pensilvania and France’s Paraiso for Meritxell Colell’s sophomore feature “Duo,” a lyrical, dancing road-movie set in Latin America.

Project will be presented at the Co-production Forum of the San Sebastian International Film Festival, which begins today Sunday.

After 24 years sharing the stage and an emotional link, in “Duo” Mónica (49) and Colate (61), a pair of dancers try to find the meaning or a new direction for their relationship during the artistic tour that they always hoped to take. The van trip through the deserted landscapes bordering Argentina, Chile and Bolivia will test their relationship, while the couple offer contemporary dancing shows at rural schools, forgotten theaters and remote village squares.

Ben Sherwood Expected to Exit Disney After Merger With 21st Century Fox

  • The Wrap
Ben Sherwood is expected to leave Disney after the company’s merger with 21st Century Fox is complete, TheWrap has learned.

The president of Disney/ABC Television Group and co-chair of the Media Networks division has been considering the offer of a different position within the company over the past few months, as 21st Century Fox president Peter Rice is expected to take on Sherwood’s responsibilities when the deal is closed, an individual with knowledge of Sherwood’s decision tells TheWrap.

Sherwood is said to have been interested in a role at Sky — should Fox have beaten out Comcast to acquire the British pay-tv giant — and Saturday’s news that Comcast had won the auction with a $39 billion bid sealed his departure from Disney.

CNN’s Pro-Trump Commentator Jason Miller Exits After Abortion Pill Accusations

Pro-Trump CNN political commentator Jason Miller announced Saturday that he has “decided to step away” from the network after a recent accusation in a legal filing that he slipped abortion pills to a former lover without her knowledge.

“I have decided to step away from my role as a Political Commentator at CNN to focus on clearing my name and fighting the false and defamatory accusations made against me,” he said in a statement on his Twitter account.

“To be clear, none of this is is in any way true,” he said of the accusations which surfaced this week after a Sept. 14 legal filing in a custody dispute with his ex-lover A.J. Delgado over their child. “That doesn’t matter however in the current court of public opinion, where fraudulent statements and a lack of factual support rule the day as long as it fits into a tweet.”

Channing Tatum Says He’s Ready To Get Back to Work After Quiet Year
2018 has been a relatively low-key year for Channing Tatum, but he says he’s ready to get back to work.

At the Saturday premiere of animated feature Smallfoot, his only film of the year, Tatum said he took the opportunity to slow down a bit this year.

“I have a kid, man,” Tatum explained. “That is the biggest job that I have.”

The Magic Mike star, who voices Smallfoot’s main character Migo, continued that he might be reaching the end of his unofficial hiatus.

“I’m sort of ready to go back to work,” he said. “I don’t know what I’m ready to go do yet, as far as, is it acting, is it directing, is it producing, writing…Maybe I’ll come and start interviewing people, I don’t know,” he joked. “I have no clue what I’m going to do, but I’m having fun though.

Analysis: Sky Win Boosts Comcast as Global Streaming Wars Heat Up

As the fight for Sky came down to a corporate version of sudden death, Comcast came to win.

After being outbid and outmaneuvered by Disney in the hunt for the larger collection of 21st Century Fox assets, Comcast was determined not to go home completely empty-handed from the biggest media M&A battle of the last quarter-century. The Sky pay-tv service, with 23 million subscribers in the U.K., Ireland, Germany, Austria and Italy, is an important platform for Comcast as the largest media giants look to build their own global streaming platforms to compete with Netflix, whose direct-to-consumer model allows for worldwide amortization of programming expenditures.

Sky Backs Comcast Deal, CEO Darroch Says ‘Momentum Will Only Increase’

Sky has recommended that its shareholders accept Comcast’s blockbuster $39 billion bid for the company, an offer hailed by chief executive Jeremy Darroch as “the beginning of the next exciting chapter for Sky.”

Comcast won a three-round auction for Sky on Saturday, with a £17.28-per-share deal that almost certainly puts enough distance between it and rival bidder 21st Century Fox to win the battle for control of the European pay-tv heavyweight. Fox, with Disney’s approval, lodged a bid of £15.67 per share.

Had the bid been close, there was speculation that Sky might have recommended the Fox offer to shareholders.

Zendaya Wants To Do A ‘Little Mermaid’ Live Action: ‘Why Wouldn’t I?’
Even if it’s only a rumor for now, Zendaya says she’d be open to starring in a “Little Mermaid” live action film.

At the premiere of “Smallfoot” Saturday, the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” actress confirmed to Variety‘s Marc Malkin that her involvement in a live action version of the hit 1989 Disney film is so far just a rumor — but that doesn’t mean she’s not interested.

“I mean, yeah, why wouldn’t I?” she said, when asked if she’d want to do the film.

Zendaya, who stars alongside LeBron James in “Smallfoot,” an animated film about Yetis, said she has yet to meet the Lakers star.

She added that the film has several messages: “Speaking your truth, following your heart…There’s a million. And that’s the idea, we all just want at least one young person to just leave and feel inspired and want to
