Shirley Movie Review 'Amazing'

Henry Cavill Cast In Witcher

Fans of the Witcher games have been fan-casting the titular monster-hunting sorcerer for years now – and now Netflix has confirmed the actor who will play Geralt of Rivia in its upcoming serialised adaptation. Fresh from a stand-out turn in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Henry Cavill will be saddling up for the epic fantasy series. Fittingly, he's a massive gamer who's previously outed himself as a huge fan of the series. Presumably he’ll be growing his moustache back out to play the grizzled hunter-for-hire - here’s hoping there are no surprise Superman reshoots on the horizon.

While the video games – especially 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – helped to popularize the story, the tale originates in a series of novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The first series on Netflix will consist of eight episodes, with the streaming service’s ‘See What’s Next’ social media account confirming that it will be based primarily on the books. The show’s executive producer Lauren S. Hissrich also tweeted about Cavill’s appointment to the role, writing: “He was my first meeting. I didn’t have writers or scripts yet – just a greenlight and a lot of passion. That was four months ago, and I’ve never forgotten the passion he brought. He IS Geralt. He always has been. I’m so thrilled to welcome HENRY CAVILL to the #Witcher family.”

With the lead now cast, production on Netflix’s Witcher series can’t be too far off – it seems this could be the service’s hopes for a Game of Thrones-style epic fantasy hit, while Amazon pursues its Lord of the Rings show. In the meantime, we’ll be getting stuck back into Wild Hunt – and its two giant expansion packs.

Behind The Scenes of Disney's Dumbo

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. A new trailer, images and poster are now available. The trailer features Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Finley Hobbins and Nico Parker.



Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.

Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny ve…

Who Is Pete Davidson 'The King of Staten Island' Featurette

Scott (Davidson) has been a case of arrested development ever since his firefighter father died when he was seven. He’s now reached his mid-20s having achieved little, chasing a dream of becoming a tattoo artist that seems far out of reach. As his ambitious younger sister (Maude Apatow, HBO’s Euphoria) heads off to college, Scott is still living with his exhausted ER nurse mother (Oscar® winner Marisa Tomei) and spends his days smoking weed, hanging with the guys—Oscar (Ricky Velez, Master of None), Igor (Moises Arias, Five Feet Apart) and Richie (Lou Wilson, TV’s The Guest Book)—and secretly hooking up with his childhood friend Kelsey (Bel Powley, Apple TV+’s The Morning Show).



But when his mother starts dating a loudmouth firefighter named Ray (Bill Burr, Netflix’s F Is for Family), it sets off a chain of events that will force Scott to grapple with his grief and take his first tentative steps toward moving forward in life.

The film also stars Steve Buscemi as Papa, a veteran firefi…

Seberg is inspired by true events about the French New Wave darling and Breathless star, Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart), who in the late 1960s was targeted by the FBI because of her support of the civil rights movement and romantic involvement with Hakim Jamal (Anthony Mackie), among others.
