Ambitious plans to bring Star Wars to life in the two parks include creating Disney’s largest single themed land expansions ever at 14 acres each, transporting guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.

Colin Trevorrow Will Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

Today at D23, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn confirmed that writer-director Colin Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX, which is set for release in 2019.

Heroic Hollywood scooped this confirmation a few few weeks ago.

While production won’t begin for a few years, Trevorrow is heading to Lucasfilm this year to begin working with artists and his fellow Star Wars directors. “Colin is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw ‘Safety Not Guaranteed,’” says Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “The power of that film paired with the enormous success of ‘Jurassic World’ speaks volumes about his abilities both as a storyteller and skilled filmmaker. We are thrilled to have such an incredible talent as Colin join our family and step into the Star Wars universe.”

Trevorrow states, “This is not a job or an assignment. It is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, filmmakers, artists and craftspeople. We’ve been charged with …

#D23 EXPO #CaptainAmerica Civil War Presentation. Who's Side Are You On?

Heroic Hollywood scooped this story a few days ago and now THR has confirmed it.

War broke out at D23 Saturday, where footage from Captain America: Civil War debuted.

Chris Evans (Captain America) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon) flew in from Germany, where the film is completing its final week of shooting.

TV's big remake push is showing no signs of slowing down.

Based on the feature film from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow Pictures, the potential series will take place 15 years after the movie. The planned Training Day series is set in the LAPD of 2015. (Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington starred in the feature.)

Antoine Fuqua, who directed the feature film, will helm the pilot, which was written by feature writer and former LAPD detective Will Beall. Jerry Bruckheimer Television's Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman will executive produce alongside Fuqua and Beall. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television, where Bruckheimer is based, and Fuqua Films.

#ToyStory4 Will Be A Love Story With Woody & Bo Peep

Disney Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter confirmed on Friday what fans have speculated about for the better part of a year: "Toy Story 4" will revolve around a romance between the blockbuster's main character, a toy cowboy voiced by Tom Hanks, and a nursery rhyme doll.

"It's a love story with Woody and—and this is news—Bo Peep," he told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." Lasseter revealed the plot point last winter but kept the details under wraps.

Lasseter rose to prominence in 1995 as director of Pixar's "Toy Story," a movie about toys that come to life and the first feature-length computer-animated film. The groundbreaking picture and its two sequels have earned about $2 billion at the international box office.
Pixar, which Disney purchased in 2006, is also preparing to release follow-ups to the 2003 blockbuster "Finding Nemo" and 2004's "The Incredibles."

"At Pixar and at Disney, we only make sequ…

Shane Black's Predator To Reinvent, Not Reboot

New film to play around in existing universe.
By Brandon Wolfe
Last year, it was announced that Iron Man 3’s Shane Black was working on a reboot of Predator (a film in which Black had a small acting role) with his old Monster Squad writing partner, Fred Dekker. However, producer John Davis has clarified that the film will actually be an “inventive sequel” that will incorporate the existing series’ lore.

"Shane shot a movie and he's doing a pilot now, but I've read a lot of his (Predator) script and I think it's genius. I think it's genius and I think it's entertaining, and what it did is recreate a famous franchise in a different, interesting way; looking at it from a different light.

He's just an amazing writer-director. He's got a way of looking at this that makes you excited again. I love this franchise. It was the first movie I ever did. I remember in being in the jungle with Arnold [Schwarzenegger] as a 28-year-old and going, 'This is a fun …

CW Developing Friday the 13th Series

Jason's Creek or Kill-more Girls?
By Brandon Wolfe
The CW will take a break from its usual teen dramas and repeat-pillaging of DC Comics to head down to Crystal Lake. The network is source developing a series based on the Friday the 13th film franchise as a horror/crime thriller. Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle, creators of the NBC series The Pretender, are developing the series, which intends to reimagine slasher Jason Voorhees in a more grounded framework. The story will center on a detective's search for his missing brother, which brings him into contact with a serial killer long thought to be dead, but whose killing spree has resumed. The series will also update Crystal Lake from a remote wooded area into a bustling town with a dark history.

A source says: "It's like the town from Jaws. It's like Amityville 20 years later, and someone says, 'I think the shark is back.' Everyone is like, 'Oh, s--t. We can't have the shark back, we finally g…

#LIFE OFFICIAL TRAILER STARRING #ROBERTPATTINSON & #DANEDEHAAN

Playing a screen icon such as James Dean is not a task that is shouldered lightly, but it’s one that Dane DeHaan is tackling, appearing alongside Robert Pattinson in the first trailer for Life.



Control’s Anton Corbijn is back chronicling the lives of real people for this one, and Luke Davies wrote the script, which tracks the pair’s interaction in 1955 before Dean became an international icon. Photojournalist Dennis Stock met Dean at a party and quickly realised he could be something special. Initially defensive and feeling guilty that he spent so much time away from his son, Stock emerged from his shell as he hung out with Dean in Los Angeles, New York and Indiana, chronicling his world for Life Magazine.

Of course, there was always a struggle to convince his bosses that Dean was worth covering, since no one realised quite what he’d become. On the evidence of this, DeHaan’s doing a solid job channelling the more vulnerable side of Dean (and pulling off the unlikely trick of fillin…

Official Trailer For #BURNTMOVIE Starring #BradleyCooper

Here is the official trailer for BURNT! Starring an all-star ensemble cast including Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson, BURNT is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.



Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all – and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). BURNT is a remarkably funny and emotional story about the love of food, the love between two people, and the power of second chances.

Movie Review: 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'

The bland spy caper The Man from U.N.C.L.E. compromises its agents in the field.
Review by Matt Cummings
If there's one thing that can be said about Director/Writer Guy Richie's breathless directorial resume, it's that he's always been able to entertain while keeping his unique vision for a film intact. Even if they're not to everyone's liking (I personally love his take on Sherlock Holmes), one can never criticize his casting and the twists he throws in as a writer. Unfortunately, something's missing from his current project The Man from U.N.C.L.E.; it comes across as too old for younger kids to remember and not much like the one that tore up evening television in the mid-1960's.

When the art thief Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) is forced by the CIA to carry out spy missions to expunge his criminal record, he runs into the towering KGB operative Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) during an operation in Cold War East Berlin. Distrustful of each other afte…

Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

N.W.A film is entertaining but still straight outta the biopic playbook.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Partway through Straight Outta Compton, the biopic of hip-hop/gangsta rap pioneers N.W.A, the group is about to play a packed-house show in Detroit. Members of the Detroit Police Department have instructed the group of a laundry list of things they are forbidden to do during the show, the biggest of which is that they are not allowed to perform their hit song “F*ck Tha Police” under penalty of arrest. Taking to the stage, the group appears for a time to abide by the edict, but ultimately refuses to kowtow to authority and defiantly belts out the song. When the police attempt to shut them down, a riot begins to break out and the group is cuffed and tossed into a police van as the crowd turns on the arresting officers. Piled on top of each other in the van, the group begins laughing triumphantly, attempting to high-five as best they can with their hands bound behind them. It was totally wor…

New #THETRANSPORTERREFUELED Trailer

Here is a NEW TRAILER for their upcoming action movie, THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED - opening nationwide on September 4, 2015!

Frank Martin (played by newcomer Ed Skrein), a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life - or so he thinks - transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women to outrun a …

#SesameStreet Is Headed To HBO

According to Variety  “Sesame Street,” is headed to HBO.

The Time Warner pay-cable service said it would license the next five seasons of the venerable program, which has taught preschoolers for decades about numbers, letters, emotional development and the joys of a rubber ducky. The series has become a mainstay of the American cultural experience, and has often served as one of the first pieces of video entertainment experienced by the nation’s tykes.

New episodes will begin airing on HBO as early as late fall. And there will be more of them: HBO will air twice as many “Sesame” episodes in a season than has been the recent norm, lifting the number produced to 35.

“Sesame Street” will still appear on PBS, which will has aired the program since 1969. But new episodes will first appear on HBO, and then be provided to PBS after nine months. It was disclosed yesterday that PBS would run only half-hour episodes of “Sesame Street” in the fall, as opposed to a full hour – which has been th…
