Recently, Leonardo DiCaprio entered negotiations to take on a starring role in Quentin Tarantino’s next movie - reported at the time to be playing an aging film star set in 1969 and having something to do with the Manson Murders. Now, according to Deadline, there’s new information on DiCaprio’s character.

Warner Bros. has released a new Tomb Raider trailer. Based on the best-selling series of video games, the story follows Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) as she travels to a fabled tomb on a mythical island to uncover the mystery behind her father’s disappearance. The film opens on March 16th.

The Justice League Blu-ray has just been announced and while the release will be packed full of special features, none of them will include the Snyder Cut. Despite evidence of several deleted scenes from Snyder’s Justice League that leaked online, the upcoming Blu-ray release will only feature “bonus scenes.”

AGREE OR DISAGREE

Yesterday, some reports about John Wick: Chapter 3 popped up online via The Hashtag Show, who reported that director Chad Stahelski was set to return for Chapter 3. Our Editor-in-chief Steve Weintraub did some digging and confirmed the news. Stahelski, who co-directed the first film before flying solo on the sequel, will return to the world of Wick for the third film.

According to The Wrap, This Is Us actor Ron Cephas Jones has joined the cast of Shazam! as The Wizard, the mysterious figure who bestows Billy Batson with his mystical powers. In the most recent version of the Shazam story from DC, the Wizard is an ancient being and the last surviving member of a council of wizards who must find a champion to battle the evil Black Adam.

In a new report from Reuters, Amazon looks to be shifting its funding away from smaller arthouse films in an effort to develop more big-budget commercial hits. This comes on the heels of Amazon Studios cancelling three of its comedy series, even as the studio has been awarded a number of Golden Globes, Emmys, and Oscars nominations and wins.
