You can’t keep good action heroes down. It looks like Expendables 4 is finally going into production this summer according to star Randy Couture. The former MMA fighter turned action star made the claim in a recent interview. Creator and star, Sylvester Stallone also made several hints on social media with regards to the project coming to fruition. No release date has been for the Expendables 4 or confirmed casting details as yet. But if it all goes to plan the sequel should arrive in cinemas in late 2019.
Christopher Robin Poster
Disney’s live-action properties are becoming highly-bankable productions at the box-office. And when something is profitable, expect any studio to truly capitalise on them. Disney is no different with Christopher Robin, which tells the story of Winnie the Pooh. The film centres on a boy who grows up and “lost his way”, which results in his childhood friends to reappear to help him remember the boy he once was. Ewan McGregor stars in the film, which is directed by Marc Forster.
Infinity War Arrives Early
Disney has shaken up the upcoming summer movie season with the announcement that it is moving up its Avengers sequel, Infinity War by a week. The Marvel ensemble film will now open in the US on April 27 instead of its original spot on May 4. The move is reportedly to give Solo: A Star Wars Story more breathing room at the box-office, when it opens on May 24. The move is indeed a smart one as it eliminates potential competition within Disney but the switcheroo has resulted in some studios reacting as well. Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage will now open on April 13 instead of April 20.
The Irishman Wraps Production
The Martin Scorsese film, The Irishman, has officially wrapped production. The director shared the news on social media. The film is a passion project for Scorsese and strangely enough it was Netflix who shared his vision and bankrolled the production. The film is based on the Charles Brandt novel, ‘I Heard You Paint Houses’, which revolves around mafia hitman, Frank Sheeran. The Irishman reunites Scorsese with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Netflix will premiere the film in 2019.
New Terminator Film Scheduled For July 2019
Terminator fans (andArnold Schwarzenegger) can rejoice because there is another Terminator movie on the way. Apparently cameras are going to roll on Terminator 6 this summer, which puts it on track for the film’s end July 2019 release. Schwarzenegger revealed the news himself at a recent event and apparently, Terminator 6 will reboot the franchise once more. The film will be a direct sequel to T2: Judgment Day and will ignore the other films that followed it. Tim Miller is directing the film, which will also star Linda Hamilton.
The Boss Baby Animated Series
Netflix is giving us The Boss Baby animated series whether we like it or not. The Alec Baldwin animated feature scored big bucks at the box-office and evidently garnered enough interest for a series of its own. The Boss Baby is back in business and trying to balance family life with Baby Corp work with a little help from his brother and accomplice, Tim. All 13 episodes of Boss Baby: Back in Business premieres on Netflix starting Friday, April 6th.
