In what is shaping up to be the most pleasant of Disney’s new live-action offerings, the consistently pleasant Ben Whishaw is in talks to join the similarly quite pleasing Emily Blunt and the equally personable Lin-Manuel Miranda in the indubitably enjoyable Mary Poppins sequel. It may be fairly unsurprising news, but that doesn’t make it any less wonderful.

We’re so close, guys. So close to the end of summer movie season and the start of the fall, when the weather cools down and the movies start to get interesting again. I don’t know that The Girl on the Train is going to be an awards contender, but it certainly looks like a juicy thriller.

Daniel Craig couldn’t have made it more clear during the Spectre press tour that he was pretty sick of playing James Bond. He even went so far as to suggest he’d pick slashing his wrists over returning as the famous secret agent for a fifth time. And now it looks like the actor is really done as 007, reportedly turning down a ton of money to star in the next Bond film. As big of a bummer as that is, it also means it’s time to speculate!

Marvel
Just a couple of weeks ago, Marvel’s Kevin Feige said that the studio will probably reveal who’s directing and starring in the Captain Marvel solo film sometime this summer, or by fall at the latest. What followed was a particularly interesting scoop suggesting that the director and lead actor being eyed for the project both share the same first name, which kicked off a bunch of hopeful speculation among fans. Today brings a small but interesting piece of info to add some fuel that particular rumor mill.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War is a prequel, a sequel, a spinoff, a mashup, a bit of a remake, and almost a movie. It contains many recognizable elements from actual films — plot, characters, scenes, imagery, music — almost all of them inspired by (if not outright stolen from) other far more original movies and television shows. There are bits and pieces shamelessly swiped from Frozen, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, plus a few odds and ends from the production it is ostensibly following, 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. It’s almost like the movie version of a pod person from Invasion of the Body Snatchers; superficially indistinguishable from the real thing, but lacking any semblance of a soul.

In a move that sounds like an April Fools’ Day joke but isn’t, development has begun on a sequel to Sicario, and everyone keeps referring to it as Sicario 2. An interview at The Hollywood Reporter with Black Label Media producers Molly Smith and twins Thad and Trent Luckinbill (those are their real names, also not an April Fool’s Day joke) unearthed the nugget that the team behind Demolition has already started in on the project they call Sicario 2, continuing the long and bitter battle to secure the Mexican-American border from drug runners. And just as the so-called War on Drugs ran into perpetuity with no viable end in sight, so shall this unlikely hit about the tangled morals of international law continue for as long as the money stays green.

‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’ Trailer: Emily Blunt’s Bonkers ‘Frozen’ Superpowers Are Unleashed

Snow White and the Huntsman was a pretty decent fantasy-action update on the classic fairy tale with some solid action sequences in the vein of Game of Thrones — which makes The Huntsman: Winter’s War and its blatant riff on Frozen all the more baffling. The latest trailer for the super-weird prequel has arrived, and if nothing else, we can all agree that A. The cast is great, and B. This movie looks BONKERS.
