Production is officially underway on Christopher Nolan’s next film, the World War II based Dunkirk, which chronicles the evacuation of the city during the British military operation that saved 330,000 lives as Allied soldiers were surrounded by German forces. Nolan is directing from an original screenplay he wrote himself with Warner Bros. pictures describing the film as an “action-thriller.”
At an event last night at Blumhouse Pictures, producer Jason Blumhouse announced legendary Master of Horror director John Carpenter will executive produce a new movie in the Halloween series. Miramax and Blumhouse Productions are co-financing production of the project with longtime series producer Malek Akkad overseeing the project under his Trancas International Films banner. No other details have been revealed on whether it’s a straight reboot, spin-off or continuation of the previous series, Blumhouse and Carpenter are aiming for a Halloween, 2017 release date.
Joss Whedon may be on a break from Marvel movies, but that doesn’t mean he’s slowing down. In an exclusive interview with The Wrap, Whedon, who was at the HeForShe Media Summit in Los Angeles being honored for his work on behalf of women’s right, revealed some clues about his next project, currently in the scripting stages. Speaking a bit about the story, Whedon told the Wrap he's working on the script and didn't reveal much details.

Another Marvel rumor has been put to rest. Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays Kingpin in Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil series, addressed a rumor that his character would possibly appear in the forthcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming film in the MCU – which of course got fans buzzing about the possibility with many wondering what it might look like pairing the colorful Spidey with the dark and violent Daredevil nemesis. But it was not to be. D’Onofrio took to social media in order to debunk the rumor.
STX Entertainment has unveiled a new trailer for writer/director Gary Ross’ Civil War drama Free State of Jones. The film chronicles the true story of a defiant Southern farmer named Newt Knight, played by Matthew McConaughey, who defected from the Confederacy and led an armed rebellion against the Southern soldiers, banding together with small farmers and local slaves to secede Jones County, Mississippi from the Confederacy.
Disney and Pixar have released the brand new trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo - Finding Dory. Director Andrew Stanton returns to helm the follow-up, which finds Dory voiced by Ellen Degeneres, suddenly remembering details about her family, which sends her on a life-changing adventure to go and find them, during which she runs across a host of new characters.
