Disney distribution executive Cathleen Taff showed exhibitors a behind-the-scenes package from Guy Ritchie’s upcoming live adaptation of “Aladdin” — the first time anyone has seen Smith step into the role made famous by the voice work of Robin Williams.
“To state the obvious, no one could replicate the iconic performance of Robin Williams,” Taff said.
Alden Ehrenreich has some very big shoes to fill. Really, it's hard to imagine bigger shoes to fill than taking up the mantle of Harrison Ford's Han Solo, but that's what the 28-year-old actor has on his shoulders. In a recent interview leading up to the release of Solo, Ehrenreich was asked about his deal with Lucasfilm. He was clearly a bit unsure if he was supposed to
Months ahead of its series debut, the streamer and retail giant has handed out an early second season renewal for Krasinski-fronted series Jack Ryan.
Not set to premiere until Aug. 31, the eight-episode drama is based on Tom Clancy's popular CIA books. Krasinski stars as the titular character in the drama that follows Ryan as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.
The story is a revisionist take that transposes Rose Red into the Snow White tale, making her a key player in the later moments of the classic story. When Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarfs to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.
This is definitely an interesting and fresh cinematic approach to taking on the classic fairytale. There's no director attached to the project yet, but apparently, the studio is currently on the hunt for one.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was a huge success for Sony Pictures. It's made over $956 million dollars, and it recently became Sony's highest grossing domestic release of all time beating out Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Audiences loved this movie and the studio betting that they will all return for a sequel. The upcoming film is already in development and is being written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. There's no director attached to the film yet, but Jake Kasdan directed the Welcome To The Jungle film. I imagine the studio will try to bring the director back on board if they can.
According to Sony, “The Oath” season 1 — which premiered March 8 with the bingeable release of all 10 episodes — has been Crackle’s most-watched original series ever and currently has the highest viewer-retention rate. Sony didn’t release specific metrics, however.

Mack was indicated on April 19 on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy in New York federal court. She appeared before Magistrate Viktor V. Pohorelsky at the Brooklyn courthouse in New York’s Eastern District.
The expectation is that Mack is cutting a deal with prosecutors to provide information against NXIUM founder Keith Raniere, who was arrested last month in Mexico and remains in federal custody. A bail hearing for Raniere is set for next week.
Her mother, Melinda Mack, was in court and put up her home in Los Alamitos, Calif. as collateral for the bail, in addition to property and a bank account owned by Allison Mack. The actress accused of helping run a secretive sex cult appeared
The Marvel superhero adventure is eyeing a debut weekend of $225 million to $245 million, with a possibility of even crossing the $250 million mark. If numbers reach the end of that range, “Infinity War” could have one of the biggest debuts of all time. The hefty launch should go a long way to justify its wildly expensive price tag of somewhere from $300 million to $400 million.
As of now, the biggest opening weekend of all time belongs to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which bowed with $248 million in 2015 and went on to make over $936.6 million domestically. Only five films in history have hit the $200 million mark in their debuts.
“Infinity War” picks up two years after the events of “Captain America: Civil War” with the Avengers teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy
30West and FilmNation Entertainment have cast Denis O’Hare, John Early, Max Casella and Megalyn Echikunwoke for Mindy Kaling’s comedy “Late Night,” directed by Nisha Ganatra.
The film also stars Kaling, Emma Thompson, John Lithgow, Hugh Dancy, Reid Scott and Paul Walter Hauser. 30West and FilmNation Entertainment are financing. Kaling wrote the script and is also producing with Howard Klein, alongside Imperative Entertainment and FilmNation Entertainment, which are also handling international sales. 30West and CAA are handling Us rights.
Thompson plays a late-night talk show host at risk of losing her long-running show right, when she hires her first female writer (Kaling) who revitalizes her show and her life. Principal photography has commenced in New York.
Jennie has been a role model for young girls and has been outspoken about her Christian faith and her focus on her family after retiring from softball in 2010. So she should have no problem getting support from fans, since previous conservative or Christian contestants like Bristol Palin, Candace Cameron Bure and Sadie Robertson have done extremely well in their respective seasons on the show.
In addition, Finch is already rumored to be one of the contestants to beat this season.
Mara Justine and Compton resident Marcio Donaldson were sent home, as were country singer Garrett Jacobs and Johnny Brenns, who made his first official stage appearance as a musician on the show. While none of the contestants were happy to leave, it’s safe to say there were no sore losers during this round.
Justine showed her poise and maturity when she said after the show, “I feel good. What a blessing it is to
For documentaries, the organization will now grant eligibility to any film that wins a “qualifying award” at a competitive film festival, regardless of distribution platform. That further opens the doors for a streamer like Netflix, or even television companies like HBO, to forgo the previously held theatrical release requirement entirely. That is, provided they win a prize from an Academy-approved list of festivals, which will be made available in the spring. It also levels the playing field for international hopefuls.
A critic review requirement is still in place for documentary features, but the list of approved outlets has expanded in New York and Los Angeles. Reviews from television critics are still not acceptable,
Despite the obstacles, the 2015 drama is getting a follow-up with this summer’s “Sicario: Day of the Soldado.” Unlike the first film, which centers on Emily Blunt’s novice agent, the sequel focuses on Alejandro Gillick, the brutally efficient hit man who oversees off-the-book operations for the CIA. Oscar-winner Benicio Del Toro returns to the role, along with Josh Brolin, who once again plays the government official Matt Graver. Blunt sits this one out.
“I felt the character could be explored further,” Del Toro told Variety during an interview at CinemaCon.
