Donald Glover, Ryan Gosling, Ezra Miller Lead Willy Wonka Shortlist

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are two very different films. The latter isn’t as beloved as the former, but it has its fanbase. But now Warner Bros. wants to retell that story once again. This time, with a new face of the sweet and peculiar candy company.

We previously reported that Paddington director Paul King was hired to direct a new adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s children’s book. Now there are new reports saying Solo: A Star Wars Story star Donald Glover, Blade Runner 2049‘s Ryan Gosling, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘s Ezra Miller are on the shortlist to play Willy Wonka. More on the story below.

The First Purge

The concept of The Purge makes for a very intriguing film while also having us question the socio-economic disparities that exist today. It is a modern-day slasher with a political twist. During the franchise, we got to see how the rich were able to protect themselves while also taking part in killing, while those who were unable to afford such luxuries were forced to fend for themselves or also take part in the lawless night.

Now, we will get to see that world once more in The First Purge. A new trailer for the prequel has just dropped, which will chronicle how it all began. Check it out here below.

fantastic beasts 2 title treatment

It doesn’t sound like we will be looking for more Fantastic Beasts in the sequel. Instead, fans will be looking at the crimes of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). That’s because the official title of the sequel to the Harry Potter prequel is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

And to commemorate the title’s announcement, Warner Bros. has released the first official look at the cast, including our first look at Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore. Check out the image below.

Before Blade Runner 2049 arrives in theaters in just a little over one month from now, some prequel short films are being released.

The first short, which is directed by Ridley’s son Luke Scott, has now been released online. It’s titled “2036: Nexus Dawn,” and sees Jared Leto‘s character, Niander Wallace, as he aims to see a prohibition on replicants repealed.

Movie Review: Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle Creation
Director: David F. Sandberg
Screenwriter: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony LaPaglia, Miranda Otto, Samara Lee
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated R | 109 Minutes
Release Date: August 11, 2017

All the possessed portraits, toys, and haunted spirits we’ve seen in James Wan‘s Conjuring films leaves plenty of room for world building. As such spinoffs are released to expand upon that world, though it has been met with mixed results. For one thing, Annabelle: while a commercial success, the spinoff was a critical disappointment. But studios are more concerned with the former, so of course, we’re going to get a continuation of that poorly received spinoff.

But here is the surprising thing about Annabelle: Creation, it’s actually pretty good. Lights Out director David F. Sandberg‘s latest effort uses all the traditional horror tropes that deliver plenty of chills and thrills. But because it uses all those familiar elements, it all suffers from the same pitfalls. Still, it is a prequel spinoff that gets the job done, and really, that’s all you could ask for. Check out my full review below.
