Star Wars 9 Brings in Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie

The cast of Star Wars 9 has officially been announced by Disney and Lucasfilm as filming is set to kick off next week. In addition to plenty of familiar faces, both from the original trilogy and the last couple of adventures in a galaxy far, far away, some new cast members have officially boarded what is being billed as the final chapter in the Skywalker saga by the studio. Those new additions include Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie.

Of the two new additions, Naomi Ackie is certainly the lesser-known, but she's not a total newbie. She starred in 2016's Lady Macbeth and was part of the cast for the TV miniseries The Five. She also starred on an episode of Doctor Who. That's something she and Richard E. Grant have in common, as he's also appeared on the long-running sci-fi series.

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson Are Coming Back For The Hitman's Bodyguard Sequel

For those of you who enjoyed the Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson action comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard, you'll be happy to hear that Millennium Films is developing a sequel. The sequel will be called  The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, and the two lead actors are expected to reprise their roles. 

There's no word on what the plot of the film will entail, but it will obviously heavily involve the wife of Samuel L. Jackson's character, who was played by Salma Hayek in the first film. While there is no script for the movie yet, it's being described at the Cannes Film Festival as "The Good. The Bad. And the Batshit cray."

The first movie turned out being a fun and entertaining action movie. Reynolds and Jackson had great chemistry, but it will never be in the same league as buddy cop films like Lethal Weapon, True Lies, or Bad Boys.

Disney Led the Charge in November as 2017 Looks to Close Strong

Disney Led the Charge in November as 2017 Looks to Close Strong
The year saw a lift from November box office grosses as this past month was only the third time ever November receipts totaled more than $1 billion, led by Disney and Marvel's release of Thor: Ragnarok, which delivered nearly 28% of the month's total. Heading into the November, 2017 was trailing 2016 by 5.3%, but coming out of it this year was 4.4% behind 2016 thanks to what was the third largest November ever and a 5.1% improvement over November last year. Disney led the month — after not having released a film since Cars 3 in mid-June — with two new wide releases in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok and Pixar's Coco, both of which have been overwhelmingly successful. Ragnarok was the month's highest grossing title with $281.7 million and Coco delivered the fourth largest three- and five-day Thanksgiving weekend opening ever and generated over $82 million in its first nine days in release. Coco's total has since climbed over $135 million domestically and over $400 million globally,
