by Silas Lesnick

Daniel Kaluuya has joined the cast of Widows.

Daniel Kaluuya is the latest addition to the cast of Steve McQueen’s Widows

Starring in this weekend’s Get Out, Daniel Kaluuya has now lined up a new role in the latest from Hunger, Shame and 12 Years a Slave‘s Steve McQueen. McQueen is directing Widows, a heist thriller based on the 2002 British TV miniseries of the same name. He’s also co-writing the screenplay with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn. According to Deadline, Daniel Kaluuya will join a Widows cast that also includes Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt), Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and the Furious franchise, Avatar) and Broadway star Cynthia Erivo.

Widows tells the story of a heist that winds up killing all four men who organized it. With a lot of money still left on the table, the widows of the original team step in to finish the heist on their own.

McQueen will also produce Widows alongside See-Saw Films’ Iain Canning and Emile Sherman. Film 4 and New Regency are co-financing the film.

You can catch Daniel Kaluuya this weekend in the phenomenally well-reviewed directorial debut of Jordan Peele. The Get Out cast also includes Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton). After that, Kaluuya can be seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s playing W’Kabi in director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther. It’s filming now and is set to hit the big screen February 16, 2018.

‘I’m Done, Too’: Logan is Patrick Stewart’s Last X-Men Movie

by Silas Lesnick

It looks like this is Patrick Stewart's last X-Men movie.

He didn’t know it when he was making it, but Patrick Stewart says Logan is his last X-Men movie

Logan now marks another ending for the Marvel franchise. Although he didn’t know it until recently, star Patrick Stewart has revealed that Logan his last X-Men movie. Speaking alongside costar Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold, Stewart told a Sirius XM Town Hall crowd (via EW) that his time as Professor Charles Xavier has come to an end. The news may be a surprise to some, as Stewart had hinted as recently as last week that he wasn’t necessarily done with the role. In fact, it wasn’t until a recent screening of Logan‘s final cut that Stewart decided on his franchise exit.

RELATED: Watch the Logan Trailer!

“I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it,” Stewart recalls of a Berlin screening left both he and Jackman teary eyed. “…[After the screening,] we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. We had some time to sit there and, as I sat there, I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.'”

Set in the near future, the film follows a weary Logan (Jackman) as he cares for an ailing Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

Also starring Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, The Wolverine) and scripted by David James Kelly, the 20th Century Fox will mark the ninth (and said to be final) time that Jackman has played the Marvel Comics character on the big screen.

What do you think of Logan being the last X-Men movie for Patrick Stewart?

Expanded CW DC Crossover Event Teased for Next Season

by Silas Lesnick

Are you ready for another DC crossover event? A new DC crossover event is being planned!

Producer Andrew Kreisberg teases an even bigger DC crossover event next season

Big things are in store for The CW‘s small screen DC Comics universe. EW caught up with DC series executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who teased a major DC crossover that is already being planned for next season! While the recent “Invasion” crossover delivered an unprecedented DC crossover between Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, the Supergirl episode ended up only featuring a connection in the final moments.

RELATED: Darren Criss Cast as Music Meister for Supergirl/Flash Musical Crossover

“Because we weren’t aware that we were going to switch ‘Supergirl’ from CBS to CW and it was really going to be part of it — that was the one show that didn’t have built-in shut-down days, so all the other ones did,” Kreisberg tells the outlet. “Melissa [Benoist] ended up being heavily in Flash and then in Arrow, so Supergirl was the one we needed to shut down the most and it was the one that we didn’t have any opportunity to. Now that we’ve gotten the early pickup and we’ve started designing the seasons, we’re building in those dark days, and actually more dark days on Supergirl than the other shows, to make it a little easier…  Next year, we’re hoping to do a true four-way crossover.”

The Flash and Supergirl are already set to deliver a much-anticipated musical crossover episode next month that will feature Darren Criss as the Music Meister. As for what will eventually bring all four shows together again, only time will tell. Check back for updates as they become available!

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance.

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramo, Tom Cavanagh as Dr. Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The ATOM, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Professor Martin Stein & Jefferson “Jax” Jackson/Firestorm, and Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist in the title role, David Harewood as J’onn J’onzz, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, as Mon-El Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor and Chris Wood as Mon-El.

Cress Williams is The CW’s Black Lightning!

by Silas Lesnick

Cress Williams will play Black Lightning!

Cress Williams will lead The CW’s Black Lightning TV series

The latest DC Comics series has found its star. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Cress Williams is set to play Jackson Pierce and his electrifying alter ego on the upcoming The CW series from Greg Berlanti (producer on the network’s Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow) and The Game and Being Mary Jane‘s Mara Brock and Salim Akil.

RELATED: Mayor Oliver Queen Might Get Impeached in Arrow Episode 5.15 Photos

Black Lightning, created by Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden, made his first appearance in 1977’s “Black Lightning” #1. The story follows Jefferson Pierce, a former Olympian, who was secretly born with the ability to create and manipulate electromagnetic fields. Although he had abandoned his hometown in Metropolis’ Suicide Slum after the murder of his father, Pierce returns there with his wife and daughter, taking a job as a high school principal. It is after losing one of his students to the gang violence that threatens the city that Pierce decides to take advantage of his powers. Adopting the identity Black Lightning, he becomes a costumed superhero who goes on to serve as team member of both the Outsiders and the Justice League.

Black Lightning has never before appeared in any live-action DC Comics adaptations. He has appeared in a number of animated projects, however, voiced by the likes of Levar Burton and Blair Underwood. He also made a memorable appearance in a 1992 Saturday Night Live sketch, played by Sinbad. Airing just after the iconic “Death of Superman” hit the stands, the sketch sees Black Lightning attempting to crash Superman’s funeral. You can watch the full sketch on NBC‘s official SNL site.

Cress Williams is no stranger to the small screen having starred on series like E.R., Grey’s Anatomy, Code Black and Hart of Dixie. He can be seen coming up on the big screen in High Top Releasing’s Lowriders.

Exclusive: Simon Kinberg Talks Possibly Directing X-Men: Supernova

Exclusive: Simon Kinberg Talks Possibly Directing X-Men: Supernova

It was recently revealed that Simon Kinberg was in talks with 20th Century Fox to write and direct the next X-Men movie, rumored to be titled X-Men: Supernova. Today ComingSoon.net had the chance to sit down for an exclusive chat with Kinberg about him possibly taking the director’s seat, as well as what he felt went wrong on X-Men: Apocalypse.

RELATED: Sophie Turner Confirms New X-Men Movie Begins Shooting This Year

ComingSoon.net: They just announced you as the director of X-Men: Supernova, which is very exciting…

Simon Kinberg: They didn’t announce it, somebody broke a story about it that’s premature, but we have been talking about what the next X-Men movie would be since post-production on the last X-Men movie. We are prepping the film, can’t say much more than that, but we’re excited to get back into telling the story of the mainland X-Men.

CS: If you did, hypothetically, get to direct for the first time, you’ve produced a lot of stuff and you certainly know your way around a set. How would you describe the directorial style you would bring to the movie?

Kinberg: I’ve had the good fortune of working with a lot of good directors, from Bryan Singer to Ridley Scott to Sir Kenneth Branagh, and I’ve also had the opportunity to work with directors that aren’t as good and I learned a lot of lessons from those directors as well. I really like my job, I really like writing and producing movies. If that was my job for the rest of my life I’d be a very lucky man. My directorial style would probably be very similar to my writing and producing style, which is very collaborative.

CS: As far as the previous film, X-Men: Apocalypse, there seems to have been a split, in that the people who love the comic books really appreciated it and the people who are fans of the more grounded movies thought it went a little too far in the comic book direction. What lessons did you learn from Apocalypse?

Kinberg: As the writer of it, I thought when we started the movie and when I wrote the movie that we were telling the story of a family splitting apart and coming back together. In the final movie its in there, but it’s a little buried, and the movie on the surface became about a guy who wanted to destroy the world. The guy that wanted to destroy the world is a superhero movie from 25, 30 years ago. Today’s superhero movies that we love the most –the “Dark Knight” movies, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the first “Iron Man” movie, those are movies about human beings in relatable circumstances that happen to have super powers. I think “Apocalypse” became more about global stakes than human stakes. That’s the lesson I learned from the movie, that human and personal stakes always trump global stakes. It’s something that Bryan did, if you go back to the first “X-Men” movie, what Magneto’s trying to do is something global in scale, but ultimately it’s about saving Rogue. The movie is about Wolverine and Rogue, a guy who doesn’t want to be connected to anybody and a girl who’s lost. They find each other, and in finding each other they find each other with the X-Men. It was a brilliant way of telling that story. I think with “Apocalypse” we got away from that a little bit. Maybe we all got a little enamored in the possibility of seeing the world get destroyed and do some things in terms of scale and scope that we haven’t done in the X-Men movies. Scale and scope don’t matter. Audiences today know it’s fake, they’ve seen the world blow up a million times in video games and movies.

Kinberg has been involved with the X-Men franchise as a writer and producer since 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. If he takes the director’s chair on the next X-Men movie, it will mark his feature film directorial debut.

Word of Kinberg’s potential involvement as director arrives on the heels of a report last week wherein X-Men: Apocalypse star Sophie Turner confirmed that she has plans to film the next X-Men movie later this year. Kinberg previously confirmed that the next X-Men movie would jump ahead ten years from Apocalypse, offering a 1990s setting. The X-Men comics saw a commercial boom during the ’90s, following character redesigns by Jim Lee, which went on to be the basis for the fan-favorite animated series.

The rumor is that Supernova will take on the comics’ iconic “Dark Phoenix Saga” wherein Jean Grey, following exposure to radiation, begins to manifest immense cosmic power, ultimately transforming her into a powerful foe. An abbreviated take on the Dark Phoenix was depicted on the big screen in The Last Stand.

This next X-Men movie is being developed in addition to big screen X-Universe projects like Josh Boone‘s New Mutants and Deadpool 2 and 3. The potential for franchise crossover, however, exists between all the films.

Texas Frightmare to Host Suspiria Reunion

by Chris Alexander

Dario Argento, Barbara Magnolfi and Stefania Casini to appear together at Texas Frightmare Weekend to celebrate Suspiria’s 40th anniversary

Dallas Fort Worth’s internationally beloved horror expo Texas Frightmare Weekend  is returning once more on May 5, 6 and 7th at the Hyatt Regency and this year, they have one helluva treat for Italian horror movie fans.

Dario Argento’s surrealist 1977 horror landmark Suspiria turns 40 this year and to celebrate TFW is bringing Argento himself over from Rome along with actresses Barbara Magnolfi and Stefania Casini to make this a Suspiria reunion like no other.

Suspiria saw Argento at his peak, sculpting a stylish supernatural free-fall into blood, murder and femininity that was propelled by the paralyzing music of the band Goblin. The visionary film was an international hit and kick started the wave of strong, ultra-violent Italian horror movies that favored style over narrative coherence that would bleed over well into the 1980s.Often imitated, there still is no other film experience quite like it…though the movie is controversially being remade as we speak.

Texas Frightmare Weekend is presented in association with Blumhouse.com. True to its motto, “The Southwest’s Premier Horror Convention”, their goal is to provide fans with an unrivaled experience by celebrating all aspects of genre films. Texas Frightmare Weekend hosts celebrity appearances, autograph signings, screenings, exclusive parties and horror memorabilia vendors from all over the country. The event is also extremely proud to have featured the rising talents of many Texas “Frightmakers” in screenings, panel discussions and Q & A’s.

In 2012 the event moved to the Hyatt Regency inside the DFW to make room for its growing fan base. The new venue provides 93,000 square feet of event space (compared to the Grapevine Convention Center at 23,500 square feet) and 800 rooms.

To buy advance tickets to the event and to check out the rest of the amazing guest list go to the official TFW site.

This past weekend at New York’s Toy Fair, we saw a lot of awesome movie-related items, but the big standout was Funko‘s massive booth featuring hundreds of their adorable Pop Vinyls. Since these adorable little figures seem to be taking over the geek collectable landscape, we thought we’d honor them with a gallery of The 35 Best Funko Pop Vinyls from Movies, which you can flip through below! Our selections include pieces from major franchises like Star Wars and Harry Potter, as well as upcoming items from recent hits like Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

RELATED: Funko Pop Toy Fair Gallery with Wonder Woman, Guardians & More

Founded in 1998 by Mike Becker as a way to make pop culture-related bobbleheads, the company was sold in 2005 and began taking on more licensed projects and eventually got into the Pop Vinyls around 2010. Since then, the Pops have become a mainstay of comic book stores and Hot Topic, as well as subscription boxes like Loot Crate, with many becoming highly collectable as they were discontinued, or “vaulted.”

Which of these movie-related Funko Pop Vinyls is your favorite? Was there a good one we left out that you own? Let us know in the comments below!

Bathurst directs from a screenplay by Joby Harold. Robin Hood is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Basil Iwanyk, Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold. It will arrive in theaters on March 23, 2018.

The cast and filmmakers from Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, including Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, director Bill Condon and composer Alan Menken, continued their way through Europe and attended a gala screening of the film in London this evening. You can view photos from the Beauty and the Beast London event below!

Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; and Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp. The film also features Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Audra McDonald as Garderobe, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Oscar winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, Beauty and the Beast is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

Beauty and the Beast will be released in theaters on March 17.

Three Dark Crowns: 20th Century Fox Plans Fantasy Adaptation

by Silas Lesnick

Get ready for a Three Dark Crowns movie!

20th Century Fox is developing a Three Dark Crowns movie

A feature film based on author Kendare Blake‘s Three Dark Crowns is in the works, reports Variety. According to the trade, 20th Century Fox has picked up the feature film rights to the 2016 novel as well as its three planned sequels. The property is being developed through Shawn Levy‘s 21 Laps. The banner is currently best known for producing the hit Netflix series Stranger Things as well as Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival. The sci-fi hit is currently nominated for eight Academy Awards.

Published last September by HarperTeen, Three Dark Crowns is officially described as follows:

Three dark queens
are born in a glen,
sweet little triplets
will never be friends

Three dark sisters
all fair to be seen,
two to devour
and one to be Queen

Every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born: three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.

But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown.

The second book in the series, One Dark Throne, will be released this September.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow: Captain Fantastic’s Matt Ross to Direct

by Silas Lesnick

Captain Fantastic's Matt Ross is set to direct the science fiction thriller Tomorrow and Tomorrow, based on the 2014 novel by Tom Sweterlitsch.

Captain Fantastic’s Matt Ross is set to direct the sci-fi thriller Tomorrow and Tomorrow

Matt Ross, the actor-turned-director who recently helmed the acclaimed Captain Fantastic, has lined up a new project in the science fiction thriller Tomorrow and Tomorrow. Based on the original novel by Tom Sweterlitsch, Tomorrow and Tomorrow was found by Entertainment 360, who then brought it to producer Mark Gordon at The Mark Gordon Company. From there, the two took the project to TriStar, where it sold in a competitive auction.

First published in 2014 by Penguin Books, Tomorrow and Tomorrow is officially described as follows:

Pittsburgh is John Dominic Blaxton’s home even though the city has been uninhabitable ruin and ash for the past decade. The Pittsburgh Dominic lives in is the Archive, an immersive virtual reconstruction of the city’s buildings, parks, and landmarks, as well as the people who once lived there. Including Dominic’s wife and unborn child.

When he’s not reliving every recorded moment with his wife in an endless cycle of desperation and despair, Dominic investigates mysterious deaths preserved in the Archive before Pittsburgh’s destruction. His latest cold case is the apparent murder of a woman whose every appearance is deliberately being deleted from the Archive.

Obsessed with uncovering this woman’s identity and what happened to her, Dominic follows a trail from the virtual world into reality. But finding the truth buried deep within an illusion means risking his sanity and his very existence…

“The triumph of ‘Captain Fantastic’ is that it is at once funny, emotional and thought provoking,” says TriStar President Hannah Minghella. “It’s this ability to explore a thematic idea in a way that is both intelligent and entertaining that makes Matt such an exciting director for Tomorrow and Tomorrow. As a futuristic crime thriller, the book uses the near future to reflect on timely questions about our world today and how virtual reality impacts actual reality. It’s Matt’s interest in exploring the complex intersection of technology with morality and love that makes his vision for Tomorrow and Tomorrow especially compelling.”

“‘Tomorrow and Tomorrow’ is prescient, it posits a world not so dissimilar from today,” says Ross, “A direction we are all clearly headed. where technology has altered the ways in which we interact with each other and the world around us. I hope to examine, following the book’s lead, the degree to which our lives are enhanced, and deeply compromised, by the technology that is already an inseparable part of our daily existence. Lynette and I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Hannah to translate this book into the complex and relevant film we all believe it can be.”

In addition to both writing and directing Captain Fantastic (currently nominated for an Academy Award), Ross is a regular on HBO’s Silicon Valley, playing the antagonistic Gavin Belsom.
