The next Cloverfield could have a strange new home. Brie Larson goes military in prep for Captain Marvel. David Mazouz says the Joker is still coming to Gotham, just not in the form you think. Plus, new looks at Pacific Rim Uprising and this week’s X-Files. Spoilers get!
Cloverfield III/The God Particle
A new report from THR suggests that the third movie in the loosely-related Cloverfield franchise could find a surprising home at Netflix, thanks to Paramount looking to cull its upcoming slate of movie releases.
Untitled Reed Morano/Kathleen Kennedy Project
In an interview with IMDB, Reed Morano confirmed the meeting she took with Kathleen Kennedy was not about the Star Wars franchise, so you can cross that one off your list of speculations.
No, I’m not doing Star Wars. Will you stop adding fuel to the rumors. It’s just a meeting, and that’s all I can say.
On the latest episode of MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, Anthony Russo stated he and his brother are “too tired to shoot anything that’s not going into the movie” when asked if anything was being filmed to throw off fans and journalists.
Sony has pushed back Slender Man three months—it now opens August 24th, 2018. [Coming Soon]
Holmes & Watson
Meanwhile, Columbia Pictures’ upcoming Sherlock Holmes comedy has also been pushed back. Its new release date is December 21st, pitting it against Aquaman and Bumblebee. [Coming Soon]
Remember to grab a parent or legal guardian, because New Mutants will be “the hardest PG-13 ever made,” according to director Josh Boone in the latest issue of Empire Magazine.
This movie is probably the hardest PG-13 ever made. I mean, we’ve pushed it. The horror is pretty dark, but there’s also an emotional core, too. If I can scare you and make you cry: that’s the goal.
Brie Larson’s prep for the role is in full swing.
Pacific Rim: Uprising
Empire has a new picture of John Boyega’s Jake Pentecost suited up and ready to fire off an elbow-rocket-powered punch.
Meanwhile, a new poster has been released, just in time for the new trailer coming later today. [Coming Soon]
New set pictures from filming have revealed that Iris will be suiting up for a stint as one of Central City’s super-protectors.
Meanwhile, Team Flash gets “downsized” by a new metahuman with the ability to shrink anything he touches. Sound off on which obscure DC villain you think he’s playing in the comics. (Gordon thinks its Dr. Shrivel from Atom Special #2.)
Finally, enjoy a sneak peek from tonight’s Darin Morgan-penned episode, “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat.”
