In a report from THR, Disney announced that they will be pulling its movies from Netflix and launch their own streaming service in 2019. The Mouse House will acquire a majority of BAMTech, a streaming technology company owned by Major League Baseball; which Disney already owns a stake in but will pay $1.58 billion for an additional 42 percent. Details of partnership came to light on Tuesday, with CEO Bob Iger saying that if a movie is Pixar- or Disney-branded, it will probably appear exclusively on the new service, including shows and movies made specifically for the service. The report states, however, that it is unsure if that will include Marvel and Star Wars.
Now that James Cameron has begun production on the long promised next chapter in the Avatar franchise, talk has turned to the returning characters we’ll see appearing in the movie. In an interview with Empire, Cameron revealed that the Avatar sequels will mainly feature the same characters from the original movie, noting that Stephen Lang’s Quaritch will be the villain in all of the movies.

The Wrap is reporting that Milla Jovovich is in final negotiations to join the Lionsgate reboot of Hellboy Rise of the Blood Queen as the lead villain. The movie is expected to start production in September, and will star Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the title character, with The Descent’s Neill Marshall signed on to direct. Jovovich is of course, familiar to sci-fi audiences everywhere having been the face of the Resident Evil franchise, as well as starring in The Fifth Element.
Paramount has released the first, full trailer for mother! directed by Darren Aronofsky. Details on the plot for the new film have been limited, other than it’s a horror film starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem; with the story involving a couple dealing with some uninvited guests that cause havoc on their quiet life. The film also features Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, Brian Gleeson, and Kristen Wiig and will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival before screening again at TIFF.
Lionsgate has released a new trailer for Wonder, the upcoming drama from The Perks of Being a Wallflower filmmaker Stephen Chbosky. The film is based on the novel of the same name and stars Jacob Tremblay as a young boy born with facial differences that, until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school. As he enters the fifth grade, he faces tremendous challenges but also finds unlikely friends.
