Sure, why the hell not! — Michael Rooker has joined Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious family. Details surrounding Rooker’s addition are being kept secret along with the rest of the film. What we do know is the 64-year-old jack-of-all-trades will play a character named "Buddy". Which, if you ask me, already sounds like the kind of guy who packs a good chew and is relatively proficient under-the-hood.
'Where'd You Go, Bernadette' Review
“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” is co-written and directed by Richard Linklater (“Boyhood”). It stars two-time Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett as the title character. And as she did in “Blue Jasmine”, Blanchett sinks herself into a role that’s dark, complex, unsettling and relatable.
'Blinded by the Light' Review
In a movie summer that’s already showcased the music of Elton John and the Beatles, The Boss now gets his shot as headliner. “Blinded by the Light” is inspired by the music of Bruce Springsteen and the real-life story of a Pakistani teenager whose life was changed by Springsteen’s songs.
'The Angry Birds Movie 2' Review
If you’re looking for a family-friendly, end of summer treat, “The Angry Birds Movie 2” is your best bet. Sony Pictures Animation sequel to their 2016 hit (based on the mobile game phenomenon) is even more free-spirited and fun than the original.
Ewan McGregor in talks to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi for Disney+ Series
As usual, every major outlet - but Disney and Lucasfilm - confirmed this news... — Before we breakout the bubbly, it appears there are many pieces that need to fall into place before we can officially embrace the possibility of seeing Obi-Wan Kenobi over on Disney Plus!

Harry Styles passes on 'THE LITTLE MERMAID'
The search for Prince Eric continues…. — Harry Styles has passed on playing the role of Disney’s handsome prince. According to The Wrap, the 25-year-old singer-turned-actor “respectfully declined” Disney’s offer despite multiple outlets assuring the entire world that Styles had landed the role opposite Halle Bailey in early July. Since then, 'no news' led many to presume a deal was done and Styles was locked in to star alongside Melissa McCarthy, Jacob Tremblay, Awkwafina, and Javier Bardem.
'Dora and the Lost City of Gold' Review
I did not have high hopes for “Dora and the Lost City of Gold”. The ads/trailers make it out to be a goofy, low-brow, slapstick comedy adventure that tarnishes the popular Nickelodeon show. And turning a beloved cartoon into live-action is always major risk.
'The Kitchen' review
Allow me second to wipe this clown makeup off. Your boy thought 'The Kitchen' was going to be 2019’s Widows. Why the high expectations? Maybe its because it was adapted from a DC Vertigo comic. Or maybe it was just the cast which included three exciting actresses; Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss and Melissa McCarthy, who I expected to bring varying degrees of excellence to the table. 'The Kitchen' is also a 1970s New York crime flick so what could go wrong? Everything, apparently.
Djimon Hounsou joins the cast of 'A QUIET PLACE 2'
When I say Djimon Hounsou, you say [fill in the blank]! — Djimon Hounsou, a man whose Gladiator character could have penned one of the greatest unwritten New York Times bestselling self-help books, has joined the cast of John Krasinksi's A Quiet Place 2!
'Brian Banks' Review
“Brian Banks” is the latest “based on a true story” drama about a football player. But unlike with “Invincible”, “The Express” or even “The Blind Side”, football actually takes a major backseat. And that’s refreshing.
'The Art of Racing in the Rain' Review
You may be thinking “The Art of Racing in the Rain” is just another talking dog movie. Think again. This adaptation of author Garth Stein’s 2008 best-selling novel is in a different class than the recent, lighter “A Dog’s Purpose”, “A Dog’s Journey” and “A Dog’s Way Home”.
Wesley Snipes joins the cast of 'Coming to America 2'

Keanu Reeves was close to starring in "Hobbs & Shaw" according to David Leitch
It goes without saying, Leitch is leaving the door wide open for Keanu to join the "Fast & Furious" family... — The rumors are true folks. Keanu Reeves was primed to join the Fast & Furious family. The keyword here - was.
'Hobbs & Shaw' Review
In a recent interview, Dwayne Johnson said the intention of “Hobbs & Shaw” was to make a movie that not only fans of the “Fast & Furious” series would enjoy but also those who’ve never seen a “F&F” movie. Turns out “Hobbs & Shaw”, featuring Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Calvin… I mean, Deckard Shaw, fails to do either.
Jared Leto joins Denzel Washington and Rami Malek in 'The Little Things'
In which Leto goes full method on Denzel and Rami? — Whether you love or hate, there's no denying the fact JARED LETO is an elite consumer of whatever weird, creepy, or challenging roles Hollywood seems to dish up. Now that Sony's Morbius has wrapped production, the 47-year-old Oscar winner moves onto his next project where he'll play yet another creepster opposite Denzel Washington and Rami Malek in John Lee Hancock’s serial killer drama “The Little Things”.
Get used to hearing the name Kelvin Harrison, Jr. He stars alongside Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Octavia Spencer in the new NEON drama “Luce”. Harrison, Jr. had roles in 2017’s “Mudbound” and “It Comes At Night”, but his performance as the title character in “Luce” will skyrocket him to stardom.
Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Rooney Mara, Michael Shannon in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro's 'Nightmare Alley'
Percent chance this turns out to be terrible? .001 — Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of 'Nightmare Alley' already sounded like a winner the moment the two-time Academy Award winner announced plans to adapt Lindsay Gresham's novel.

James Wan returns to write and direct an all-new original horror film
The man behind the second highest-grossing horror franchise of all time - SAW - has an all-new horror project brewing. — It’s been four years since we last saw James Wan behind the camera for what was just his sixth directorial contribution to the horror genre. Which, considering Wan’s contributions as director, producer, and writer have yielded over 25 films throughout his accomplished nineteen-year career, I will admit six felt like a low number. Four years later, we have learned that Mr. Wan is expected to return as writer and director for an all-new original horror project!
