Lana Condor Joins ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL

Lana Condor has joined the cast of Alita: Battle Angel, Deadline says. The film, which is being directed by Robert Rodriguez, is based on the graphic novel by Yukito Kushiro

The story begins when a scientist rebuilds a female cyborg with no memory of her past, except for her deadly martial arts skills. She then goes around fighting crime. Obviously things get complicated and I'm sure memories of her past come back to haunt her. 

Condor (who had a very small role as Jubilee in X-Men: Apocalypse) joins a cast that already includes Rosa Salazar, Jackie Earle Haley, Ed Skrein, Eiza Gonzalez, and Christoph Waltz. The film has been slated for release in July of 2018. 

Ilana Glazer and James Corden Cast in EMOJIMOVIE: EXPRESS YOURSELF

Ilana Glazer and James Corden will join T.J. Miller in EmojiMovie: Express Yourself. It's a film about emojis that look nothing like the emojis you find in your phone. Here's the official description for the film:

EMOJIMOVIE: EXPRESS YOURSELF unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.

This is going to be one of those films that people trash and then, against all odds, it debuts at number 1 worldwide and spawns sequels. I want to be wrong but The Smurfs and Ice Age made it happen, so who am I to count this film out? 

JURASSIC WORLD 2 to Focus on Animal Abuse

The new Jurassic World will mirror the real life consequences of animal abuse according to the director of the first film. Time reports Colin Trevorrow that had this to say about the blockbuster sequel...

“The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons,” 

Trevorrow continued and explained why it's necessary that J.A. Bayona direct the film as opposed to him...

“The second part will be a very different movie that will explore new paths. For that reason, it was clear that it needed to be Bayona who would direct it, in order to have it grow and evolve with his very personal vision.”

I'm not sure how I feel about a Jurassic Park film with an agenda. Let's be honest, they're already about the cheesiest blockbuster hit on the market and trying to add some subtext to a film about running from dinosaurs could come off as ridiculous. Then again, it could bring some seriousness to the film that hasn't been seen since its birth. 

Do you think having a real world message will better serve the Jurassic Park franchise?
