Looks Like PRINCESS DIARIES 3 Is Moving Forward with Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews

I’ve heard rumors about a third Princess Diaries movie being developed, and it actually sounds like it’s going to happen. At least, everyone seems to be preparing for it. While making an appearance on Larry King Now, The Princess Diaries director Garry Marshall offered an update on The Princess Diaries 3 saying:

“Well, they talk about it. Disney always likes to announce things, so they tell Garry, ‘Shut up, we’ll announce it. [Anne Hathaway] came to my office, she was quite pregnant…she puts her computer on the table, pushes three buttons, there’s Julie Andrews on Skype in Long Island. And we have a meeting.”

I’ve spent a lot of time watching the Princess Diaries films over and over again because I have three girls that love watching them. They’ve been wanting to see another movie, and they keep asking about it, so they will be thrilled to hear this news as it sounds very promising. Marshall obviously isn’t shutting up about it.

It’s pretty cool to hear that Anne Hathaway is involved again and will be reprising her role because she’s become such a huge star. But, she kinda does owe her career to the franchise since she made her big screen debut in the first movie. It’s also pretty cool to hear that Julie Andrews will be back as well. 

I’m sure this team of talent will give fans of the franchise something fun that will feed their fandom.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 Set Video Features Some Excitement

A video has surfaced from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that really makes me wonder what is going to happen in this story. The movie is currently shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, and the scene you are about to watch was shot in the neighboring town of Cartersville.

What makes this so interesting is that whatever scene this entails takes place on Earth in a modern day setting, so it’s not a flashback. The scene features a crowd of people screaming in fear as they run down the street, and behind them we see several cars being thrown into the air, which I imagine means they are probably being shot at by some kind of spacecraft. 

Yesterday some photos from this set leaked that showed posters of Nathan Fillion as a movie star named Simon Williams, who in the Marvel Comics universe is Wonder Man. You can read more about that here. I don’t know if we’ll see any more of him than what we see in those posters, but I hope we do. I hope this character is actually eventually realized in the MCU because that would be awesome. 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released on May 5th, 2017, and I can’t wait to see how this all fits into the story that director James Gunn is going to tell us this time.

Disney Locks Down Release Dates for Eight Live-Action Fairy Tale Film Projects

disney-locks-down-release-dates-for-eight-live-action-fairy-tale-film-projects1

Disney has seen a lot of success with its live-action fairy tale film projects over the years. The Jungle Book is continuing to blow up at the box office, and the studio obviously wants to see that trend continue with more movies. They’ve recently announced release dates for eight untitled live-action fairy tale films that they are developing. Those dates are:

  • July 28, 2017: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • April 4, 2018: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • August 3, 2018: Untitled Disney (Live Action)
  • November 2, 2018: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • December 25, 2018: Untitled Disney (Live Action)
  • March 29, 2019: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • November 8, 2019: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)
  • December 20, 2019: Untitled Disney Fairy Tale (Live Action)

So if you’ve ben enjoying the live-action adaptations of these Disney animated classics, then there are lots more to come. We don’t know exactly which films will fill these slots, but there are several movies that Disney is currently developing and here is a rundown:

  • Cruella with Emma Stone set for the title role and Kelly Marcel writing
  • A Wrinkle in Time with Ava DuVernay attached to direct and Jennifer Lee writing
  • Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson set to star and John Requa and Glenn Ficarra writing
  • Dumbo with director Tim Burton and writer Ehren Kruger
  • A sequel to Mary Poppins with director Rob Marshall, starring Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda
  • Maleficent 2 with Angelia Jolie set to return in the title role and Linda Woolverton writing
  • The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with director Lasse Hallstrom and writer Ashleigh Powell
  • The Jungle Book 2 with both director Jon Favreau and writer Justin Marks returning
  • A Tinker Bell project with Reese Witherspoon set to star and Victoria Strouse writing

So you can expect some of these to fill in those dates over time. Other films that Disney is working on that are not on this list include Peter Pan from Pete’s Dragon director David Lowery, Winnie the Pooh, Mulan, Pinocchio, Genie, Prince Charming, and Rose Red

The upcoming films that are already coming out include James Bobin’s Alice Through the Looking Glass on May 27th, Lowery’s Pete’s Dragon on August 12th, and Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast on March 17th, 2017.

It doesn’t seem like Disney is ever going to stop with these live-action fairy tales. They’ve found something that represents the Disney brand and makes a lot of money so they’re going to stick with it. Can you blame them!? So on top of all these Disney films, we will be treated with all kinds of Marvel and Star Wars awesomeness. 

As long as Disney keeps pumping out good quality movies, I’ll keep watching!

Watch: Supercut of Everyone Captain America Has Killed in The MCU

Ah, Captain America. That paradigm of humanity, bastion of morality, despiser of cursing...and brutal killer? Well, he hasn't tortured anyone to death or anything like that (yet), but Steve Rogers has certainly racked up quite the kill count in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Mr. Sunday Movies is here to break them all down for us, and while I think there are several of these aren't confirmed kills (that shield is a powerful thing, but maybe they just knocked those guys down for the count), there are enough grenades deployed and instances of Cap flinging guys off of helicarriers for us to basically say "close enough."

Maisie Williams Crashed a Random Fan’s GAME OF THRONES Viewing Party

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, had a little fun during the season six premiere last night. In a series of Instagram posts, she details how she surprised a group of UCLA college students and crashed their viewing party last night. Arya is currently blind in the show, but it looks like Williams still knows a great opportunity to make GOT fans happy when she sees it.

(1/12) This commences my photo story. Earlier today I put this out to everyone on Twitter... I wanted to find some unsuspecting fans and surprise them with drinks and snacks before the premiere episode tonight...

(2/12) I found a couple, Mark and Kate, film students, who were throwing a party at their apartment, with a few friends. So at 8pm we left the hotel to go get snacks.

(3/12) We saw (on Twitter) that Mark and Kate had already made Game of Thrones themed snacks, and decorated their apartment, but who doesn't love extra popcorn and crisps?

(4/12) SNACKS DONE. We were on our way to surprise our lovely fans!

(5/12) We could hear the party inside so we had to be REALLY quiet!

(6/12) Firstly, I met Mark. The buzzer was broken so Mark came down to let us in. After exhaling a "HOLY SHIT!", we hugged it out and he helped us inside.

(7/12) Mark and I devised a cunning plan. He would enter first declaring that they had won the GoT swag (this was a ploy we made up to throw people off the scent) and I would follow after hoping and praying that everyone would actually recognise me.

A video posted by @maisie_williams on

(8/12) My favourite part is how excited they sound to win the swag, little did they know, I was just around the corner...

A video posted by @maisie_williams on

(9/12) They had the coolest Game of Thrones decorations, but this was my favourite. My money's on dead, it seems I'm outnumbered.

(10/12) I went there to surprise them with snacks, but when I got there, I found myself trying one of every single snack they had made.

A photo posted by @maisie_williams on

(11/12) They were catching up on the last episode of Season 5 when I went in, and we all giggled nervously as we took pictures during the famous "shame" scene. I had the most amazing time, everyone was so welcoming and excited... Thanks to Mark, Kate and company for having us in your lovely flat. Enjoy the rest of Season 6.

(12/12) Ps. Thanks for the dragon egg cookies, they were THA BOMB

Artist Reimagines STAR WARS Ships as Giant Monsters

After so many years of waiting, Star Wars: The Force Awakens managed to bring back plenty of emotions and thrills. The movie gradually revealed what happened to some of the heroes that we have loved (and still love), and also introduced us to a bunch of new characters and their mysterious stories. While we wait for the release of Episode VIII, fans and artists try to kill some time by showing off amazing cosplays, mashups, illustrations, and more.

Jake Parker, an artist from Utah, has transformed familiar Star Wars vehicles into gigantic monsters. The art print features a TIE fighter, Death Star, the Millennium Falcon, and many others which are also reimagined in a monstrously incredible way.

All of the prints can be purchased directly from the illustrator’s online shop.

Sony Scares Up a Sequel to GOOSEBUMPS, Wants Jack Black Back

Before last year's live-action Goosebumps movie even hit theaters, we knew that Sony Pictures was interested in a sequel. Now the studio is getting serious about it, as THR reports that the company is closing deals with original director Rob Letterman and writer Darren Lemke to return for Goosebumps 2Jack Black, who played Goosebumps author R.L. Stine in the first film, is expected to return, though that deal apparently hasn't gone through yet.

I never saw the first movie, but plenty of people did: it earned nearly $157 million on a $58 million budget, which is enough for Sony — a studio that currently doesn't have many franchises to its name — to try to capitalize on the mixture of family-friendly and scary content and turn this into a full-fledged movie series. They better watch out, though: those bumps gonna goose ya.

Nathan Fillion’s Cameo Revealed in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

Nathan Fillion is set to make another cameo in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As you know, he made an uncredited cameo in the first movie as a big alien prison inmate who roughs up Star-Lord and gives him a hard time. He has a new part in the upcoming film, and if you don't want to know what it is, stop reading now.

SPOILERS:

Some photos from the set of the film were recently posted by Comicbook.com and there's a movie theater on the set, so it seems the movie will also have some scenes set on Earth. The movie posters outside of the theater feature a series of movies featuring an actor that is played by Fillion in various movie character roles. One of those movies looks like a Tony Stark biopic. That tells us this is most likely set on a present-day Earth.

So who is this actor that Fillion is playing? Well, all these movie posters are being used to advertise a film festival celebrating the work of an actor named Simon Williams. That's who Fillion is playing, and Williams is the alter-ego of a Marvel superhero named Wonder Man! How cool is that!? Here's some information on the character for those of you who aren't familiar:

Simon Williams was made into a being of pure ionic energy by Baron Zemo and became the impossibly powerful Wonder Man. Meant to aid the Masters of Evil in their campaign against the Avengers, Wonder Man instead found himself sympathizing with the heroes and joined their team instead. He has remained an Avengers mainstay ever since, despite his constant insecurities and battles with his own mortality.

I seriously doubt there will be more to the character in the film than these posters. This is probably just a cool little Easter egg thrown into the film, but it would be awesome if it turned out to be a little more than that. Check out the photos from the set below.
