Paramount Pictures announced yesterday the release date and full cast list for their upcoming Transformers spin-off entitled Bumblebee. The powers that be at the studio are looking to take the franchise in a new direction, hiring Kubo and the Two Strings helmer Travis Knight to breathe life into the franchise – and they will be doing so just in time for Christmas. Bumblebee is now set to be released on December 21st, 2018 – the same day as DC’s Aquaman and four days before Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns.
Yesterday Variety confirmed that visual effects studio Weta Digital has begun work on the four sequels to James Cameron’s Avatar. The New Zealand-based shop most recently did the effects and motion-capture work on War for the Planet of the Apes, with director James Cameron praising the digital house for their work on the Apes sequel, as well teasing that since the company has only gotten better since the original Avatar, it now means they can push the effects work even further.
OPENING THIS WEEK
It looks as though Blade Runner 2049 will be adding another prestigious composer to the already stacked list of composers. Revealed in a recent interview with Studio Cine Live (via the Film Music Reporter) director Denis Villeneuve confirmed that Hans Zimmer is now working on the score alongside A Cure for Wellness and upcoming IT composer Benjamin Wallfisch. Sicario and Arrival composer Johann Johansson, who originally signed on to score the film, is still involved on the project with Villeneuve saying that they are maintaining the theme written by him.
Paramount Pictures has released a new teaser trailer for Mother!, the new horror movie directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. The movie tells the story about a couple’s relationship becoming tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.
