Kamehameha unified the Hawaiian Islands following a series of battles during the 1790s and took steps to ensure they remained a united realm after his death. Johnson had been eyeing the movie in recent years and decided to move forward on it during the filming in Hawaii of his hit comedy “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”
Johnson has starred in three New Line titles — “San Andreas,” “Rampage,” and “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
Producers are Van Allsburg, William Teitler, Mike Weber, Ted Field, and Feigco’s Jessie Henderson. Van Allsburg wrote the original children’s books that served as the basis for “Jumanji” and “The Polar Express.”
“The Sweetest Fig” was published in 1993 and takes place in Paris, centered on a wealthy dentist who lives alone in an apartment with his dog, who he mistreats. The dentist is given two magical figs from an old woman as payment for removing a tooth — and after eating one, discovers that his dreams have come true and plots to become France’s wealthiest man. But his dog eats the second fig, which transforms the dentist into the dog and the dog into the dentist.

The film will see Silverstone playing Susan Howard, who along with her husband Bob (Corddry) pay a visit to the marriage counsellor Judy Small (Watkins) in an effort to save their relationship. However, while she appears trustworthy at first, Small ultimately manipulates the couple, putting the two at odds, and bringing their marriage almost to the breaking point.
Producton on Judy Small is now underway, with the film marking the directorial debut of William Teitler, whose producing credits include Jumanji, The Polar Express, Zathura: A Space Adventure and What Maisie Knew.
Silverstone was recently seen on the big screen in Book Club, and also stars as the lead in Paramount Network’s comedy series American Woman.

The show itself — technically two separate history plays, mercifully condensed into a single three-hour production that, frankly, could stand to be shorter still — continues to be performed today due not to any particular interest in its eponymous monarch, but as a credit to Falstaff, by far the most amusing in Shakespeare’s great panoply of characters,
The company is a China-backed firm with offices in Beverly Hills, Calif. It operates under the leadership of CEO Peter Luo, and came to notice in 2016 through a deal with “Aquaman” director James Wan. Starlight then signed deals with F. Gary Gray, Roland Emmerich and Jon M. Chu last year, and invested in the Thurgood Marshall biopic “Marshall.”
Thursday’s announcement did not identify specific projects or details of the financing. Zemeckis, whose credits include “Forrest Gump,” “The Polar Express,” “Cast Away,” “Flight” and the Back to the Future trilogy, lavished praise on Luo for his support of filmmakers.
“Under the leadership of Peter Luo, Starlight has created an environment that is incredibly friendly to filmmakers,” he added. “I could not be more
The cause of death has not yet been determined.
Carrington, whose stage name was Debbie Lee Carrington, may be best known for her performance as Thumbelina in 1990’s “Total Recall,” where she played a prostitute. In one of the film’s more violent scenes, she stabbed one of the villains before shooting at police with a machine gun. As a little person, she often played a stuntwoman for child actors, including in “Titanic” and the “Child’s Play” series. Carrington also took on a number of costumed roles across film and TV, from characters in several “Star Wars” films and “Men in Black.”
Born in San Jose, Calif., in 1959, Carrington attended University of California, Davis until she answered a casting advertisement by Little People of America
This weekend, moviegoers rated two new openers, the gay teen romance “Love, Simon” and the faith-based drama “I Can Only Imagine,” the highest CinemaScore possible: a sterling A+. And while it’s telling that this weekend spawned such high marks for such very different films, it also speaks to what happens when Hollywood churns out the films that certain audiences are so eager to see.
Zemeckis won Gold Derby’s poll with an astonishing 49% of the vote, leaving everyone else in the dust. Steven Spielberg (“Schindler’s List”) came in second at 15%, while Jonathan Demme (“The Silence of the Lambs”) was the only other double-digit vote-getter at 10%. Rounding out the top five here were Spielberg (“Saving Private Ryan”) at 9% and James Cameron (“Titanic”) at 8%. Far below the rest we had Sam Mendes (“American Beauty”) at 4%, followed by Clint Eastwood (“Unforgiven”) at 2%. Three directors tied for last in our poll with 1% of the vote each: Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”), Mel Gibson (“Braveheart”) and Anthony Minghella (“The English Patient
"Elf is the most beloved holiday movie in my household because it's a film that makes you feel warm, happy and silly, and everyone needs some of that come the holidays. That, plus Will Ferrell's elf antics will never get old!"
The top 5 holiday movies are rounded out by The Polar Express, Love Actually, which actually got a Love Actually 2 sequel of sorts on
What’s a Christmas movie without a sprinkling of musical magic? Many of our favourite festive hits are defined by their soundtracks, so, in the spirit of the season, I’ve rounded up 10 classic scores that never fail to put a smile on our faces.
One simply cannot celebrate Christmas, or indeed compile a Yuletide soundtrack list, without John Williams’ heartwarming masterpiece. A late replacement for Young Sherlock Holmes composer Bruce Broughton, Williams once again demonstrated his ability to redefine practically any genre. Featuring a host of memorable themes, anchored by the whimsical ‘Somewhere in My Memory’, plus some drum-machine laden action material and some truly heavenly original carols (‘Star of Bethlehem’ being the absolute highlight), Home Alone set a new standard for Christmas scores.
Yes, despite all the current internet speculation,
For years this character has been portrayed in movies. He has appeared in cameos and starring roles. In fact, it seems that just adding Santa Claus (and the holiday season) to a film can make it have a longer life. People love nostalgia. They
It feels like finally, the Christmas period has rolled around and the collection of assorted chocolate, wine and badly wrapped presents have begun to collect ready for December 25th. And with this season comes the one thing that most people have in common regardless of your religion, traditions or where you live. I am of course talking about the festive film, so called because of its reliance on Christmas comedy, family feuds or Santa in one form or another.
No matter what you do during the month of December, one certainty is that you will turn on the TV to watch a film that you know, deep down, isn’t very good. Yet, this is the fifteenth year you have watched it so why turn back now? (it would have been sixteen in a row except for that year you had to go to the in-laws…

It’s been over 20 years since ‘Toy Story‘ was first released. In that time, the landscape of film animation has changed so dramatically that you can separate the time difference as before as after ‘Toy Story.’ At one time, every animated feature release by Disney was a must-see event because: A–they were the results of years of painstaking detail and were made
