Newly confirmed Shazam director David F. Sandberg made a name for himself with the well-received horror films Lights Out and the upcoming Annabelle: Creation. But he’ll be doing the superhero shift into the DCEU with Shazam. The adaptation is an unusual property; with his alter ego a kid named Billy Batson who shouts, “SHAZAM” and transforms into a costumed adult who basically has the powers of Superman – but with the mind of a child.

Variety is reporting that the release date for Pacific Rim Uprising has been delayed, again, this time by only one month. The sequel saw a series of release dates that first started on April 7, 2017; which was then moved to August 4, 2017 and then again to February 23, 2018. Now, the date has been set for March 23rd, 2018 – only a month, with no reason given as to why.
Split still stands as one of the best surprises of 2017. The R-rated thriller grossed more than $276 million worldwide and revealed that, all along, it was a sequel to Unbreakable. Collider’s own Steve Weintraub recently sat down with Jackson at the press day for The Hitman’s Bodyguard where Jackson revealed to Steve that filming begins this September 25th on Glass with a release now set for January 18th, 2019.
In 2015 they announced a LEGO spinoff called The Billion Brick Race, with Jason Segel and Drew Pearce writing and co-directing. We haven’t heard much since until yesterday when THR announced that Segel and Pearce are no longer involved and Jorge Gutierrez, the director behind The Book of Life, is now onboard to develop and direct. Plot details are still under wraps with a release date yet to be determined.
People Magazine exclusively released the newest trailer for Goodbye Christopher Robin. The Fox Searchlight film highlights the relationship between the title character and his famous author father, A.A. Milne, and explores the creation of Winnie the Pooh and his friends.
