Movie And TV News Roundup Of The Month - SUPER MEGAPOST!!!!

I haven't posted on here for over a month, so apologies for that. Adult responsibilities and all that...

So below we have the news, posters and trailers for all the awesome stuff that's popped up since the end of April '18.

Enjoy!


Spawn Reboot Signs Jamie Foxx in Lead Role



Jamie Foxx has been cast as Spawn in the upcoming movie reboot from Todd McFarlane, however in an interview with Deadline McFarlane stated that the actual main character and protagonist of the film with actually be "Twitch" the detective from the Spawn comics, and Spawn himself will only be there as a background character and may not even have any lines...

McFarlane stated:

“The scariest movies, from Jaws to John Carpenter’s The Thing, or The Grudge and The Ring, the boogeyman doesn’t talk. It confuses people because of the comic book industry, and because they all default into their Captain America mindset and I keep saying, no, get into John Carpenter’s mindset or Hitchcock. This is not a man in a rubber suit, it’s not a hero that’s going to come and save the damsel. It’s none of that.”



Sherlock Holmes 3 Announced


Sherlock Holmes fans will be happy to hear that Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law have signed on for a Christmas Day 2020 release of the 3rd movie in the franchise directed once again by Guy Ritchie. There's even talk of a possible return by Irene Adler/Rachel McAdams too! I love these films and although many people might be slightly overdosing on Robert Downey Jr. (Marvel anyone?) he's a surefire hit as Holmes and Jude Law (who will also be entering the Marvel Universe in Captain Marvel next year) is a great Watson. Can't wait.



Bill And Ted 3 Finally 100% Confirmed


It's been rumoured for years and confirmations of scripts and talks have been peppered about by Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter in every interview they've done for just as long, but now it's been confirmed that Bill and Ted 3 is on it's way and will be like "A Christmas Carol" type of story which will see the titular duo go back to time travelling, but now in their 50's!



Bad Boys For Life Heading For 2020 Release


The 3rd instalment of the Bad Boys franchise "Bad Boys For Life" has been confirmed by Sony Pictures for a Jan 17th 2020 release with both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back in their lead roles. The film has had a slightly rocky time with it being announced as Bad Boys III back in 2015 only to be taken off the production slate and then losing its director Joe Carnahan. But things are back on track now. Love these films!



Rambo V Confirmed By Sly Stallone


Sylvester Stallone released the above teaser image for a 5th Rambo movie last month with the words "something wicked is coming this way".
