In a report from THR, veteran producer Charles Roven, who has worked on every DC Comics movie at Warners since 2005’s Batman Begins is no longer producing certain DC movies. Talks are underway to have Roven shift to a different role going forward, likely as an executive producer who is not involved in the day-to-day productions. The move comes as Warner Bros. continues to scrutinize its DC movies in the wake of Batman v Superman’s performance with audiences and fans at the box office. 
 
Marvel made a great impression with their recently released casting announcement for Thor: Ragnarok, but as for an official confirmation of the plot, we have yet to be given a synopsis. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Mark Ruffalo shed some light on what we can expect from the movie in which his Bruce Banner/Hulk role has been confirmed. When he was asked about the size of his role in the movie, he described it as an “intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor” with him also talking about how much Hulk we can expect. Thor: Ragnarok opens in theatres November 3rd, 2017.
 
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Simon Pegg and Mike Myers are joining Margot Robbie, Max Irons and Dexter Fletcher for Vaughn Stein’s noir thriller Terminal, which is currently shooting in Hungary. Terminal follows two hit men played by Fletcher and Irons as they embark on a borderline suicide mission for a mysterious employer and a large paycheck.

A new extended look at Independence Day Resurgence has been released, giving fans five whole minutes of plot and character, setting up what seems to be the major set pieces and story from the movie. The next chapter in the Independence Day franchise shows humanity using recovered alien technology and collaborating with the nations of Earth on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare them for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force when they return to finish what they started. 
 
Deadline is reporting that Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions are set to make an untitled family animated project at STX Entertainment. Sandler has a long-standing working relationship with STX chairman and CEO Robert Simonds and together they’ve made eight films with Sandler in the lead role including such popular entries as Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer and The Waterboy. 
 
Illumination Entertainment has released its first trailer for Sing the newest talking animal movie that tells the story of Buster Moon voiced by Matthew McConaughey, a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
