Now that Avatar 2 has begun production, fans can finally look forward to more movies in the Avatar universe. And as far as new characters in the franchise, we don’t have a lot of information – except for some recent comments made by Josh Brolin who revealed that he was offered a role in the Avatar sequels but turned it down. That apparently did not sit well with director James Cameron.

Even more details for The Last Jedi were released yesterday by EW and this time, the spotlight was shined on General Leia and Poe Dameron, along with Benicio del Toro’s mysterious new character DJ.

Yesterday Lionsgate revealed, via a report from MovieWeb, that the upcoming reboot of Hellboy would be changing its title from Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen to simply: Hellboy. As for the movie itself, it was reported earlier that Resident Evil star Mila Jovovich was in talks to play the villain of the movie, but not much else about the reboot is known.

Earlier this year it was reported that the rights to the Terminator franchise would be returning to James Cameron in 2019, with the filmmaker acting as “godfather” for a new installment in which Deadpool director Tim Miller was reportedly in talks to direct. Now, if Arnold Schwarzenegger is to be believed, the next installment could begin shooting as early as next year.

Empire Magazine has debuted two new images from the upcoming adaptation of IT. While images of Pennywise the clown have only been featured in a few spreads from EW, the character has really only been featured in the marketing material and mostly hidden in shadows, or featured in quick shots. The new images now give us a closer and more terrifying look at Pennywise, showing fans of the novel just exactly what the Losers Club will be up against.

Covert Media’s CEO Paul Hanson recently revealed that Katie Holmes has signed on to star in a feature film adaptation of The Secret that is to be directed by Sweet Home Alabama’s Andy Tennant. The movie is based on the best-selling book by Rhonda Byrne, in which a hard-working young widow with three children hires a handyman to fix her house during a terrible storm.
