Check Out The First Official Image Of Will Smith As Genie In Upcoming Live-Action Remake Of ‘Aladdin’

The upcoming live-action remake of ‘Aladdin‘ will hit theaters May 24, 2019, and a full trailer for the movie should drop soon, but before then, we’re being treated to a few official photos from set.

In the photos below, you can see Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine.

Several fans have pointed out that Smith’s Genie is not blue in these photos, and they’re not happy about it.

 

 

Not sure why Genie’s color would matter that much, but you folks should know that Genie will in fact be blue in the movie. This coming straight from Will Smith’s Instagram account.

 

 

As mentioned above, this Aladdin remake will hit theaters in May. These photos look super corny, but obviously you can’t judge a movie by a few staged photos from set. We’ll wait until we see the trailer to make a real judgement.

Check Out The First Images Of Ryan Gosling As Neil Armstrong In ‘First Man’

Ryan Gosling is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, and Damien Chazelle is one of the most talented filmmakers, so when they join each other for a project…WE TAKE NOTICE!

Universal has released the first images from the upcoming biopic First Man, which stars Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong. The logline for this movie is pretty vague, but writer Josh Singer promises it’ll be a mission movie

“This is 100 percent a mission movie. It’s about going to the moon as seen through the eyes of the guy who got there. We have at least five major set pieces that are action, and if your heart rate doesn’t go through the roof, if you’re not gripping the edge of your seat the entire times, I’ll be shocked.”

And that’s somewhat surprising, ’cause most biopics cover the entire life of a person and focus more on family and personal relationships.

The first images released don’t show much of the action Singer describes, but they do give us our first look at Gosling as Armstrong…

In addition to Gosling, this movie also stars Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll and Jon Bernthal. It’ll hit theaters October 12, 2018.

First Look At Lin Manuel Miranda On The Set Of Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns (PHOTOS)

Back in 1964, Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews created a masterpiece with Mary Poppins. It’s a classic, and you know what Hollywood must do with classics, right? Ruin them by remaking them for a new generation.

Obviously there have been exceptions. Most recently with The Jungle Book, so it is possible to bring a classic film back to life.

And we think Disney is on the right track with Mary Poppins Returns. They have the talented Emily Blunt in the leading role, and they also convinced Lin-Manuel Miranda to join the cast. If, for some reason, you don’t know who Miranda is, just put in “Hamilton” on Spotify and say goodbye to your life.

Photos have been released on Twitter, and they’re giving us our first real look at Miranda in costume on the set of the film.

We’re not sure how big his role in the movie will be, but even if he doesn’t spend a lot of time in front of the camera, we know his genius will spread behind-the-scenes.

We have to imagine he’s helping Disney create a fresh sound for this sequel. That’s probably the main reason they invited him to join the movie.

It’s set to be released Dec 25, 2018. Still have almost two years to wait. We apologize for teasing you.

Margot Robbie Has Completely Transformed For Her Role As Tonya Harding In Upcoming Film ‘I, Tonya’ (PHOTOS)

It’s always interesting to see how far actors will go to ~become one~ with the character they’re playing. We have seen actors drop a shocking amount of weight, and we’ve also seen them gain a shocking amount of weight.

Margot Robbie didn’t have to transform her body too much for her role as the disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding, but thanks to her hair and makeup team, she does look completely different.

The 26-year-old actress was photographed on the set of ‘I, Tonya’ in Australia on Monday. It’s our first look at the actress as Tonya, and we must say, we’re impressed by how she nailed the look.

Robbie wouldn’t have been our first choice to play Harding, but it looks like it’s going to work…

As described by Us Weekly, this biopic will bring “back to life Harding’s 1994 attack of rival skater Nancy Kerrigan. In one of the biggest and most notorious sports scandals in American history, Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and bodyguard hired a hitman to injure Kerrigan seven weeks before the 1994 Winter Olympics.”

In addition to Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan and Paul Walter Hauser will also star. No official release date has been announced, but it could be released as early as December 2017. However, it’s more likely to have a 2018 release date.

We’ll keep you posted.

 

WOW! J.K. Simmons Completely Transforms His Body For ‘Justice League’ Role, Check Out His Poppin’ Muscles Inside!

J.K. Simmons has always been in decent shape for someone his age. Even during his magnificent performance in Whiplash, the 61-year-old actor was looking pretty pumped, as you can see in the photo above.

But now that he’s set to star in Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Part One as Gotham City’s police commissioner Jim Gordon, the actor has decided to improve his physique even more.

He’s being trained by retired marine Aaron Williamson. The same trainer who has worked with Zac Efron and The Rock. That’s some great company to be in, and it looks like Williamson has managed to get Simmons in the best shape of his life.

Check out the photos Williamson shared on his Instagram account. He captioned the photos, “Every time we train together I forget he’s 61-years-old. So much respect for this guy.”

sim

Daaamn, right? Dude is jacked. Can you imagine how terrifying he would be as Fletcher now? That beard? Those muscles? Geez.

Just how big his role in Justice League will be is still unknown; however, he’s obviously giving himself completely to the role. You wouldn’t think he would work this hard if he was only going to be on screen for a few minutes. I have a feeling he’ll have some bad-ass action sequences in the film.

Justice League: Part One hits theaters November 17, 2017. You better go watch it, or else Simmons might show up at your door. You don’t want that.

Dwayne Johnson Shares ‘Baywatch’ Movie Photos, And The Cast Is Looking REALLY Good! (PHOTOS)

Dwayne Johnson loves to make his fans feel like family on social media. When he’s filming a movie, you know about it because he’s always sharing special photos from the set.

And he has continued the tradition while he works on the Baywatch movie adaptation, which is scheduled to be released May 19, 2017. He shared several photos from the set on his Facebook page, and the one that is getting the most attention is the one you see above.

From left to right, the new Baywatch film stars Kelly Rohrbach, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera, The Rock, Zac Efron and Jon Bass.

And as you can see, it has a little something for everyone. Three beautiful women, a hulk-like creature, a male model and even a dad bod.

So what can we expect from this movie? A lot of laughs. It’s clear they aren’t going the dramatic route. It’ll be your typical R-rated comedy with some action tossed in to keep you entertained.

And as Johnson describes, you’ll have beautiful women who can kick butt and Efron’s 17-pack.

“Rated R comedy, hard core action, beautiful ass kicking women, the unforgiving and majestic ocean, Zac Efron’s 17 pack abs, and most important our #1 secret weapon… Jon Bass. Underneath this layer of oiled up sex god is an extremely talented dude, 100% comfortable in his own skin and truthfully, Jon Bass just may wind up being my absolute favorite part of our movie.”

Sounds like a good time. I’ll definitely be checking this one out next year.

Jonah Hill Looks A Little Different In First Photos From The ‘Arms and the Dudes’ Set

If you have been following Jonah Hill’s career, then you know he has changed completely since hitting Hollywood. He has shown directors that he’s more than just that “funny fat guy.”

He is more than this…

And the 31-year-old actor also made some big changes in his personal life. He lost a lot of weight a few years ago. He looked like a new man.

But now it looks like Jonah Hill has gained all that weight back. The actor was spotted out in California on Wednesday filming his new movie with Miles Teller, Arms and the Dudes. The film, based on a true story, tells the story of two friends in their early 20s (Teller and Hill) who score a huge contract from the Pentagon to become weapon suppliers for the Afghan Military.

It’s reportedly based on Guy Lawson’s 2011 Rolling Stone article titled, “The Stoner Arms Dealers: How Two American Kids Became Big-Time Weapon Traders.”

Of course, everyone is wondering if Jonah was forced to gain weight for his role in the film, but sadly, no one seems to know the answer. Some people even claim he could be wearing a fat suit.

Either way, I am sure we will find out the answer soon enough. As for the movie, it’s expected to be released by Warner Bros. in 2016.

Your First Look At Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Edward Snowden (PHOTOS)

snowd

We are now seeing the first photos from the set of Oliver Stone’s latest film, Snowden. And not surprisingly, the pictures from set are focusing in on Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He will be playing Edward Snowden in the film, which is based on Luke Harding’s book, The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man.

The two images you see show Edward Snowden in his pre-whistleblower days. Back when he wanted to serve his country by joining the US Army.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt talked about the image on his Facebook page…

“I was surprised when I first learned this about Snowden–that he enlisted in the US Army in 2004. He wanted to go fight in Iraq, but during basic training at Fort Benning, he broke both of his legs and received an administrative discharge. After that, he was still determined to serve his country (love him or hate him, you gotta admit the guy’s strong-willed) and so he ended up getting a job at the CIA, which is where his career in Intelligence began.”

A lot of people seem to think this film could take home a lot of awards, but some critics believe the film is coming too soon.

No matter what side you’re on, you must admit that this film has a pretty impressive cast. In addition to JGL, we have Shailene Woodley, Timothy Olyphant, Nicolas Cage, Zachary Quinto, and the list goes on and on.

It’s currently scheduled for a Dec. 25 release date. Are you looking forward to this Christmas present?

First Images From ‘The Gambler’ Show Mark Wahlberg’s Dramatic 60-Pound Weight Loss

gm

We are sure some of you have been hearing about Mark Wahlberg’s extreme weight loss for his upcoming film, The Gambler. He was forced to drop 60 pounds for the role, which some believe could land him an Oscar.

USA Today released three brand new images from the movie, and you can definitely see a difference, especially when you look back at how huge he was for the latest Transformers disaster.

In the film, Mark will play a literary professor with an intense gambling problem, which leads to him getting into trouble with gangsters. It’s described as an updated retelling of the 1974 drama of the same name. In the photo down below, you can see Wahlberg standing next to Brie Larson. She plays Amy in the film, and is the main reason I am so excited for the movie.

But let’s get back to Mark’s weight loss before I start declaring my love for Brie Larson. Mr. Wahlberg told USA Today that the greatest challenge wasn’t losing the weight. It was transforming himself into a believable teacher.

“Forget losing the weight. Being believable as a teacher was one of my greatest challenges and most rewarding. It meant being able to have the comfort to really understand and say those words. Comments we’ve been getting from the test screenings include, ‘I never thought I would see Mark Wahlberg as a professor, but I believed it and went along for the ride.’ Hearing that hit on one of my big reasons for doing this part. It’s different and unexpected.”

Sounds like it’s going to be an interesting ride. The Gambler will be released Dec. 19. The film is directed by Rupert Wyatt and written by William Monahan.
