Now, with the rest of the cast already set, Disney has finally chosen an actor to play Prince Eric. According to reports, Jonah Hauer-King has landed the role.

The Little Mermaid

Disney is not going to stop with the live-action adaptations of their animated classics. Not as long as films like Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and the Beast keep making the box office gold that they are making. With films like Dumbo, Aladdin, Mulan, and The Lion King currently in the works, the studio is continuing to go through their vault of award-winning animated films and pairing them with an almost perfect creative team. Case in point, The Little Mermaid, which will have new songs by Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken.

We reported on the film when it first broke in August of last year, and now there are new reports saying that the live-action film is looking to land Rob Marshall as director. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Screenwriter: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated R | 141 Minutes
Release Date: September 22, 2017

When getting a sequel, you’d expect something on a larger scale, something more epic than its predecessor. And a lot of times, a sequel can deliver on just that. But then there are those times where it just falls short or just stays the course. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is pretty much the latter. The film, which prides itself in dressing in sharply tailored suits, adds nothing new to the franchise. It’s same shop, same tailor, same pocket square, same tie, just a different knot. But it tries to add new elements by introducing the Statesman – the American version of the Kingsman but with more Stars and Stripes aesthetics.

But with barely any stakes and an eccentric villain with a lack of originality, Kingsman: The Golden Circle doesn’t do much of anything but put on the same exact suit, but with a different color and a different tie knot. My full review below.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

The new trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle dropped earlier today, which was just in time for their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The cast includes Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Sophie Cookson, all of whom are returning to reprise their roles of the agents of a super secret British spy organization. They will be joined by Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges, and Pedro Pascal, who serve as agents of the Statesman, the American version of the Kingsman. Julianne Moore is Poppy, the film’s villain. Matthew Vaughn also returns to direct the sequel.

When it comes to Hall H, you can almost always expect some new footage from the film, and the cast to give it some extra hype. There was also a video that saw this world crossing over with the animated comedy Archer. Check it out below.
