It’s the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine, and the glass ceiling.

The milestone comes a week before Disney’s final 2018 release, “Mary Poppins Returns,” is set to arrive in theaters after earning four Golden Globe nominations. When it opens on December 19, it will push Disney past the all-time annual domestic record of $3 billion that it set in 2016. The studio’s domestic total is currently at $2.94 billion.
Disney has set multiple box office records in 2018, including the largest opening weekend in box office history with “Avengers: Infinity War” with $257.7 billion.

The film finds Godzilla facing off against such iconic beasts as Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis King Ghidorah.

The blockbuster hopeful features a star-studded cast, including Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins,
But it doesn’t have to be that way: the IndieWire staff has given a lot of thought to who is most likely to step into Hart’s shoes, given their availability, the image they’ll project for the Academy, what corporate synergy they’ll represent for broadcaster ABC, and any previous statements they’ve given about their desire to host. Based on what we know right now, these are the most likely contenders.

Talking to Marc Malkin at the GQ Men of the Year party, Massoud first described what it was like to work with Will Smith, who is playing a real life genie. “It was amazing. [Will’s] one of the most generous, grounded people in the industry,” Massoud says. “I’m just so lucky, megastar that he is.”
As for the new sounds that Disney is adding to the world of Agrabah, “We’ve got all the original music in there, plus a couple of new songs,” Massoud explains. “They’re really empowering. I gotta say one is very empowering for women, I think people are going to really,
THR spoke with writer Linda Woolverton and she revealed that had issues with the remake as she felt it changed the story she’d set out in the first film in ways that didn’t make sense or betrayed the characters. She also was naturally disgruntled that she wasn’t invited back to work on the production.
“I wasn’t totally thrilled with The Beauty and the Beast remake because I didn’t think it was exactly true to the mythology of the storytelling. And I’m not happy that I don’t get to participate. Who would be?”
With Hollywood on the brink of historic change, it’s too bad Louis B. Mayer isn’t around to witness it. It was back in 1924 when Mayer summoned every star in town, even the President of the United States, to honor the opening of his heralded new MGM studio.
The pomp and ceremony was as bogus as it was grand. Mayer’s actual assets at that moment totaled a mere $100,000. And the “G” in Metro Goldwyn Mayer (Samuel Goldwyn) had already fled the venture. Alert to all this, President Calvin Coolidge bailed at the last moment. MGM’s biggest star,

Craig Gillespie has been tapped up to direct a film about the 101 Dalmatians villain, starring Emma Stone.
Disney's focus on live-action updates of its animated classics continues apace, with the news that I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie is in talks with the studio to take over the reins on Cruella.
The film will focus on the villain of 1961's 101 Dalmatians, Cruella de Vil, presumably in much the same way as the Sleeping Beauty-inspired Maleficent. Oscar-winner Emma Stone is set to take on the leading role as the fur-loving fashion queen who strikes fear into the heart of doggies everywhere.
This version is being pitched as an 80s-set origin story with punk-rock stylings, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Risky? Sure. But since Glenn Close has already played de Vil in 1996's live-action 101 Dalmatians and its sequel (the imaginatively titled 102 Dalmatians), a radical new take
According to a new report, Craig Gillespie is in early negotiations to helm Cruella for Disney. He hasn't signed on the dotted line just yet, but this feels like a very good fit. Gillespie not only helmed a recent critical darling in I, Tonya, the Tonya Harding biopic that earned Margot Robbie a Best Actress Oscar nomination and Allison Janney a Best Supporting Actress win.

Though this past month has seen a continuous stream of theories on the most likely date that the preview will come our way, it’s currently looking like the first set of footage from the Avengers: Infinity War sequel is no more than a week away from release, with one prominent rumor being that the trailer is arriving this Monday. We’ll believe it when we see it, but if the hearsay actually has it right this time, then we could be getting some confirmation as soon as tomorrow.
