There are a number of interchangeable male actors who inexplicably seem to be dominating the Hollywood scene these days. Some have been more successful than others, some have stuck to indies or sci-fi blockbusters, and they all look like Sam Worthington. The latest upcoming World War II-set historical romance features the Sam Worthington who is Jai Courtney, star of Terminator: Salvation and Suicide Squad, who plays a Nazi officer who falls in love with a Dutch-born Jewish woman while he is investigating Kaiser Wilhelm.

Lionsgate
It’s always fortuitous when a director and stars who made a great movie decide they’d love to all work together to make another one. Such is the case with Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and David Mackenzie, whose fantastic western homage Hell or High Water was a Best Picture nominee last year. The three have decided to reteam, this time with Netflix, for Outlaw King, which, by the title, sounds like it could be very similar to Hell or High Water. It’s anything but.

Hot off Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee is ready for his next project — which might end up being a script that’s been in the pipe for about 20 years, penned by none other than Game of Thrones showrunner David Benioff. Lee is currently in negotiations to direct Benioff’s sci-fi thriller Gemini Man for Skydance.

Free Comic Book Day is a fun time of the year for anyone even remotely interested in comics.

Lucasfilm
When we last saw Luke Skywalker, he had just flipped the gray hood of his grayer robes off of his head with a flourish to reveal his extremely gray wise man beard and to fix Rey with his piercing gray eyes. Word on the street is he’ll definitely have more lines in The Last Jedi, and probably at least one more outfit. A new rumor also suggests he has some new jewelry that might have something to do with his past and Darth Vader. [Be advised: this gets into some kindaaa spoilery territory, so if you want to go into The Last Jedi blind, run away!]

Marvel
Now that it has not one director, but two, Captain Marvel is off to the races. And not a moment too soon, if we’re to expect this movie to still come out in March 2019. Can you believe we still have to wait almost two whole years for Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie? The movie has its star in Brie Larson, but we still have no idea what the plot is going to be, or if any other superheroes we know are going to be in it. What we do know is that it’ll start filming in a little over 9 months from now.

Free Fire, Ben Wheatley’s gangster movie that’s essentially a big group of characters played by a bunch of fantastic actors shooting and shouting at each other for 90 minutes, is about to hit theaters, and if you need more incentive than that description to go see it, a short, hilarious clip has just hit the internet.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to launch a new Harry Potter franchise whether you like it or not. The next installment will dive a little bit deeper into Newt Scamander’s past and also flesh out Dumbledore’s backstory and how it all connects to the beginnings of Voldemort. We already know that Newt has a very important ex, but apparently he also has a family, as his brother is currently being cast.

Warner Bros.
Growing up means realizing that we don’t live in the Jetsons’ version of the future, with instant meals and flying cars, but one that’s run by data and analytics. Hollywood has been inching into the data game, as companies develop software that has the ability to use information from a screenplay or a trailer to predict box office ticket sales. In the future, robots might be choosing our movies for us. It’s already happening now.

Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson Filmed a Deleted ‘Fate of the Furious’ Scene

EDIT

Universal
My theory that every Fast & Furious movie is essentially a fanfiction of the one that came before was proven correct this afternoon when it was announced that there is a spinoff in the works starring Jason Statham’s Decker Shaw and Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs. The two of them had, by far, one of the best sequences in The Fate of the Furious — that giant prison fight — and their animosity-turned-friendship is one of the great joys of the new movie. (I guess we’re just forgetting about the fact that Shaw killed Han Seoul-Oh a couple movies ago #JusticeForHan.) Apparently, the idea for a spinoff came from a deleted scene that Statham and Johnson shot to tack onto the very end of the movie, which the producers loved so much they wanted to save it for its own movie.
