The adaptation of the animated feature follows the studio’s live action slate of films that has recently exploded with a 1 billion haul from Beauty of the Beast; and will follow with the retellings of Dumbo, The Lion King and now, Aladdin.

Variety is reporting that Fox Searchlight has given an awards season release date to Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy film The Shape of Water. The film stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones and Octavia Spencer and is about a lonely government facility janitor whose life is changed when she discovers and falls in love with an aquatic man — played by Jones — who is being held captive for testing.

In a recent interview with Blackfilm.com, standout Deadpool actress Leslie Uggams, who played the loveable yet fierce Blind Al opposite Ryan Reynolds, confirmed she would return for its sequel in Deadpool 2.

Focus Features has released the first official trailer for The Beguiled, the new film from director Sofia Coppola that stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning. The story takes place at an all-girls school in Virginia 1864 , during the Civil War when a wounded Union soldier is discovered nearby and taken in, upsetting the balance of the school that has been sheltered from the outside world.

Earlier this year, Woody Harrelson mounted an experimental production by filming a movie live and broadcasting it movie theatres for one night only. The movie, shot in real time and with one continuous shot (and only one camera) is written, directed and starring Harrelson and is entitled Lost in London. Based on a true experience Harrelson had in 1992, the film finds him learning that he’s the subject of the latest celebrity tabloid scandal.

1) Carrie Fisher will not be in Star Wars Episode IX after all

3) Box Office Report

4) The Man From UNCLE sequel in the works

During a new interview with ABC during Star Wars Celebration this past weekend, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy revealed that Carrie Fisher will make her final bow as General Leia Organa in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The news comes just as Fisher’s brother Todd Fisher said they would use footage of Carrie from the last two movies in the series to fill in Episode 9.

Deadline is reporting that Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon is in early talks to helm the remake of The Bride of Frankenstein for Universal Pictures’ monster universe. Condon has said in many interviews that the property is one of his favorites, with Condon even including a sort of homage to the James Whale film in the climax of his Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.

It’s Monday which means it’s time for the weekend box office. With an estimated $100.2 million domestic and a massive $432.3 million from 63 international markets, The Fate of The Furious took the No 1 spot at the weekend box office with $532.5 million worldwide, beating the all time global opening previously held by Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ $529 million. The Boss Baby took the No 2 spot with $15.5 million with Beauty and the Beast taking the No 3 spot with $13.6 million domestic. Beauty and the Beast also added $22 million internationally as its worldwide total climbs to $1.043 billion. Smurfs: The Lost Village finished in the No 4 spot with an estimated $6.5 million as it dropped 51% in its second weekend with a domestic total now standing at $24.7 million. And rounding out the top five is WB's Going in Style, bringing in an estimated $6.35 million with a domestic total now at $23.3 million.

In a new interview with Slash Film for the release of Free Fire, star Armie Hammer revealed that a Man From U.N.C.L.E. sequel is currently being written by the original film’s co-writer. Producer Lionel Wigram responded to Hammer’s query about a sequel, confirming one was being written; with Hammer saying he is asked over and over again about a follow up.

While the development of the next Star Wars films remains a mystery, one thing we do know is that Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi and Colin Trevorrow’s Episode 9 will continue the tale of the Skywalker saga. But what will happen after Episode 9 and will Lucasfilm continue the Skywalker saga in possible Episodes 10, 11, and 12?

A second trailer has been released for Ana Lily Amirpour’s sophomore effort The Bad Batch. The movie features Arlen played by Suki Waterhouse alongside Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, Jim Carrey and Giovanni Ribisi, and is described as a psychedelic dystopian love story with cannibals.

Having taken her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga.

Alvarez and Jay Basu will co-write the story, with Basu penning the script. The duo will take on that project after Alvarez directs the script he wrote with Basu for The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Sony’s continuation of the Lisbeth Salander saga they began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Lionsgate has unveiled the first red-band trailer for the action comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson. The film stars Reynolds as the world’s top protection agent, a man who is tasked with serving as the bodyguard for his mortal enemy, a notorious assassin played by Samuel L. Jackson.

THR is reporting that Dope breakout star Shameik Moore has been cast as the voice of Mile Morales in Sony’s upcoming animated movie Spider-Man. The project doesn’t spotlight Peter Parker as the web-head this time around but will instead feature Miles, the popular incarnation introduced in 2011 who is half black and half Latino. Also joining the production is Ray Donovan star Liev Schreiber who will voice the movie's villain; though the character's identity is being kept under wraps.

According to Deadline, Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently tracking for a huge $150 million dollar opening weekend, with the report further breaking down that the movie is at an 88% awareness among audiences – which should continue to grow even stronger as Marvel continues its marketing campaign. Deadline also states that since the movie is only three weeks out, the figure could be on the lower end, with some industry experts estimating it could even surpass Captain America: Civil War’s $179.1 million opening from May of last year.

According to a report from Jeff Sneider at The Tracking Board, a sequel to Eddie Murphy’s classic 1988 comedy Coming to America is confirmed and moving forward at Paramount, hiring original writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield to pen the script. Murphy recently teased a sequel on his Twitter feed before removing the tweet (and his account) when he claimed the account had been hacked.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Josh Brolin has been cast in the role of Cable opposite Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2. The production has been looking to find the right actor for the role for many, many months now, with reports saying Stranger Things’ David Harbour, Michael Shannon and even Brad Pitt were up for the role. With Brolin on board, the actor has officially snagged his second Marvel Comics character – the first being of course Thanos, who will finally appear in the Marvel Studios’ Avengers Infinity War. Additionally, sources for THR say that Brolin has a four-picture deal for the part including Deadpool 2 which likely means he will also be locked to play the character in the upcoming X-Force movie. There is still no release date set for Deadpool 2.

Annapurna Pictures has unveiled the very first trailer for Oscar-winner and Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow’s highly anticipated new film entitled Detroit. Scripted by Hurt Locker’s Mark Boal, the crime drama is set against the backdrop of the Detroit riots of 1967, which were initiated by a police raid of an unlicensed bar in the city’s Near West Side. Confrontations quickly turned violent resulting in the deaths of 39 people and leaving hundreds wounded as the riots lasted for five days. The ensemble cast also includes John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, John Krasinski, and Will Poulter. It opens in theaters on August 4th.

THR reports that Dolph Lundgren is making a return to studio movies, joining the cast of James Wan’s Aquaman alongside Jason Momoa. Lundgren will play King Nereus of the aquatic kingdom Xebel; claiming Aquaman’s Queen Mera as his own while also wanting to kill him. The movie is set for release on December 21st, 2018.

According to THR, Edgar Wright’s next movie he’ll direct will be an adaptation of Andrew Smith’s outlandish sounding novel entitled Grasshopper Jungle; with New Regency is final negotiations to pick up the project to distribute. Grasshopper Jungle will team Wright with the creative teams behind the upcoming Venom and Jumanji movies - screenwriter Scott Rosenberg and producer Matt Tolmach. The book to movie adaptation will follow a teenage boy dealing with sexual confusion who accidentally unleashes an apocalyptic, genetically engineered plague on the world that brings about six-foot-tall praying mantises with insatiable appetites for food and sex. Yes. You heard that right. A release date has not been determined.

Warner Bros. and DC Films have debuted a new poster for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash and Ray Fisher as Cyborg – who all appear front and center in the team-up image. Justice League is set to be released in theatres on November 17th, 2017.
