Nowadays, watching a superhero movie without a post-credits scene or two feels almost incomplete. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gave us an unprecedented four mid-credits scenes, and a few MCU movies before that had had at least two. But the DCEU is different, with both Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman eschewing the post-credits scene rule in favor of letting the movie end at the credits and allowing audience members to go the heck home. However, Suicide Squad did have one — which featured Amanda Waller handing over her files to Bruce Wayne. No doubt that was meant to connect Suicide Squad to the Justice League, but does that mean the upcoming Wonder Woman will also have a scene after the credits have rolled?
Folks, it’s true: the 2008 Mamma Mia! movie that starred Meryl Streep and Stellan Skarsgard dancing in sequined bellbottoms is getting a sequel. Not only that, it already has a director and a release date. Not only THAT, according to the press release, some, if not all, of the original cast is expected to return for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!
How about a nice little Star Wars rumor to start the weekend? The Last Jedi comes out in a little more than six months from now, and while we know pretty much nothing about the plot, that won’t stop us from speculating about every new prop the cast might be carrying in this movie! Apparently, Luke Skywalker does have some gear with him besides those five books in his cave, and one of these items is particularly intriguing.
Man, Johnny Depp is having one PR disaster after another these days. Between lat year’s abuse allegations to this month’s hot goss about his inability to stop himself from spending money, you’d think he’d have run out of messes to get himself into by now. Well, shockingly, you’d be wrong, because news just got out that Depp had rejected an early draft of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales script because its villain was a woman.
It wouldn’t be a superhero movie without a glowy weapon of some sort. Wonder Woman has a sword and a shield, but her coolest weapon is her lasso of truth, which makes whomever is stuck in it unable to lie — and also acts as a pretty useful fighting tool on its own. World War I soldiers probably aren’t going to expect to get roped by a screaming Amazon during battle.
Looks like the world is gradually righting itself: Carrie Brownstein will soon be a big-budget feature film director. Big [clap emoji] budget [clap emoji] feature [clap emoji] film [clap emoji] director [clap emoji] Carrie [clap emoji] Brownstein [clap emoji]! The female half of the Portlandia duo has landed herself her first feature directing gig for MGM’s fairy tale reimagining Fairy Godmother.
Folks, we’re finally going to hear Angela Bassett say the words, “Your mission, if you choose to accept it….” Well, probably. I haven’t read the script of Mission: Impossible 6, but I do know that today Bassett was cast as Ethan Hunt}s new CIA director.
Just in case you forgot, we’re getting another movie based on Dr. Seuss’s immortal holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas pretty soon. And also just in case you forgot, said title character is going to be voiced by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. And said Grinch movie, now has its first official, extremely fuzzy promo art.
Amazon has just announced their upcoming June slate, and subscribers will be getting quite a few treats next month. Two highly anticipated (and very good) Amazon Original movies are joining the site: Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, a film that, if you’re not already, will make you fall in love with Adam Driver, and Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar winner The Salesman. If you missed either of these when they hit theaters during awards season, now you have all the time in the world to enjoy them.
Hugh Jackman’s The Greatest Showman, a musical about the life of famed circus director P.T. Barnum, had a tough time getting off the ground. Before La La Land, if you can believe there was such a time, studios looked askance at any who suggested a rebirth of the Hollywood musical. But Jackman and director Michael Gracey were not to be deterred, working like mad to get their circus musical off the ground, and it paid off. The Greatest Showman will hit theaters this December, and the first images hit the Internet today.
Michael Moore has been secretly filming a documentary about Trump’s election victory since November, and just in time for Cannes it was picked up today by Bob and Harvey Weinstein. Fahrenheit 11/9, a play on the title of Moore’s award-winning 2004 documentary about the September 11 terrorist attacks Fahrenheit 9/11.
Since online pirates tend to view “don’t steal stuff” as more of a guideline than an actual rule, it’s no surprise that eventually they’d start taking aim at Hollywood. And, hey, why not start big, with, say, Disney, the biggest studio in the business? And instead of pilfering something like Coco, how about going after, I dunno, maybe Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth installment in one of the most recognizable brands worldwide? Well, that’s exactly what a group of hackers apparently did.
