Disney Eyes Will Smith for Genie Role in Guy Ritchie’s Live-Action ‘Aladdin’

Get your Prince Ali mash-up memes ready because Will Smith might be taking on the role of the charismatic Genie in Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin. The studio was previously in talks with Smith to play the villain role in Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo movie, and although those discussions ultimately fell apart, it looks as though Disney might be able to land the actor for a part in another one of their many, many, many live-action remakes.

The Han Solo Spinoff Isn’t Actually About Han ‘Getting His Name’

A couple weeks ago, when Disney CEO Bob Iger said that the Han Solo spinoff was going to be about “How Han got his name,” the internet, understandably, went a little wobbly. Is Han Solo not Han Solo’s name?? What was his name before he was Han Solo?? What does it all MEAN??? Well, we can all relax now, because what looked like a mysterious plot detail was actually just a poorly-chosen turn of phrase.

Netflix Is Willing to Release Original Movies Into Theaters, But Only After They’re on Netflix

Yesterday, Indiewire film critic David Ehrlich ran an illuminating essay on Netflix’s testy relationship with the original films it releases, explaining how their model of bypassing theatrical release and going straight to streaming ultimately degrades the viewing experience and makes the movies harder to find and appreciate. (This comes hot on the heels of an official denunciation from the Federation of French Cinemas against the Cannes Film Festival for allowing TV into their lineup for the first time ever.) Clearly, his words went straight to the top of Netflix’s corporate office, as the online video giant has issued a letter to their shareholders assuring them that everything’s going to be fine and movies aren’t dead, probably.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Fate of the Furious’ Zooms Up the Record Books

Audiences don’t turn their back on family. That’s the lesson to be learned from this past weekend, anyways, when The Fate of the Furious proved that this is one franchise showing no signs of slowing down. It was never a question of whether The Fate of the Furious would take the top spot this weekend, but even the most optimistic of projections couldn’t have expected the global domination that this movie undertook. Here’s the box office estimates as of Sunday afternoon:

Alan Tudyk and Hal Hickel Explain K-2SO’s Backstory for ‘Rogue One’

A lot of thought went into building the background of Rogue One — despite the fact that it itself is derived from one line of backstory that came from another, previous movie. The movie introduced audiences to entirely new planets, characters, and spaceships, as well as a friendly new droid that quickly became a fan-favorite due to his dry, sarcastic humor. Alan Tudyk, who voices K-2SO, and Animation Supervisor Hal Hickel recently revealed what went into building the droid’s backstory.

Tom Cruise Is Still Screaming Weird in the Second ‘The Mummy’ Trailer

To understand why I’m more excited than most for The Mummy, it’s important to make a list of all the things that I’m a sucker for. Tom Cruise movies? Check. Trailers or commercials that use the Rolling Stones’ ‘Paint it Black’ as a musical cue? Check-check. Movies where soldiers fight monsters? Check-check-check. In fact, if you do the math, the only thing on my Hollywood wishlist that the second The Mummy trailer doesn’t deliver is a John Wick-style gunfight, and there’s still time. One of those might still find its way into the final movie.

‘Life’ Director Daniel Espinosa Explains His Film’s Shocking Ending

While Life may sometimes seem like a loving collaboration of used parts  —  a dash of Alien, a dollop of Gravity, a pinch of every ’90s monster movie your parents still have on VHS in their attic  —  there is one element of the movie that is Life and Life’s alone: that ending. If you haven’t seen the film yet, now would be a good time to stop reading, because we’re going to get into the nuts and bolts of what made that Life ending work.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Power Rangers’ Is No Match for Beauties or Beasts

After several weeks of limited movement, a handful of new releases prompted a pretty thorough shakeup of the Box Office Top 10. While Beauty and the Beast continued its unstoppable assault on the domestic box office, we also said hello this weekend to three new movies and goodbye to a handful of old favorites from the first few months of the year. Let’s start with the estimated numbers as of Sunday afternoon.

Watch the ‘Justice League’ Come Together in the First Theatrical Trailer

When we last left the caped crusader, things weren’t looking all that bright. Sure, he had a new super-friend in the form of Diana Prince, but Superman — the complete-stranger-turned-mortal-enemy-turned-best-friend in Batman’s life — has sacrificed his life to protect Earth (or something) and now the weight of protecting our planet rested heavily on the shoulders of Bruce Wayne. If Wayne could organize others like him, then maybe Earth could stand a fighting chance.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Will Not Be Changed Due to Carrie Fisher’s Death

Though it felt kind of wrong, when Carrie Fisher died in December a lot of us wondered how the Star Wars movies would weather her loss. Had she finished shooting all her scenes? (She had, at least for Episode 8.) How integral to the plot of Episodes 8 and 9 was Leia going to be? Would the story need to be changed to accommodate for her absence? Some wondered if her likeness would be Tarkin’d onto a body stand-in for the final movie, which felt wrong even to think about. (It’s not happening, thankfully.) Lucasfilm has a lot to consider after losing one of its biggest stars, but it sounds like none of The Last Jedi is going to be changed because of her death.
