Episode twenty-two of our news feature has arrived. Take a seat on the front row of the Cineroom theatre to receive the latest news that is happening in the world of film.
In this episode we have the first looks at T2 Trainspotting 2, next year’s Beauty and the Beast and Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. We also explore the last cast member to join the Fantastic Beasts sequel.
Closing the episode will be a long-awaited update on the Dragon Tattoo sequel…
T2 Trainspotting first look!
The follow-up to Danny Boyle and Irvine Welsh’s 1996 classic is nearly upon us. This means that a brand new trailer is here? You are correct!
We see Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewan Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and, 20 years older but not a day less psychotic, Begbie (Robert Carlyle) all reunited. Kelly McDonald’s Diane also looks set to be back involved too.
Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance. Trainspotting 2 arrives in cinemas on 27 January, 2017.
Beauty and the Beast: First look!
The live-action take on Beauty and the Beast is nearly with us early next year. Emma Stone and Dan Stevens are featured heavily as the titular characters in the images below. Here’s your first look at the March 2017 blockbuster.
Also featured in the pictures, a few of the enchanted, servants-turned-into-objects characters that includes Cogsworth, voiced by Ian McKellen, Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson), Ewan McGregor's Lumiere and Gugu Mbatha-Raw's Plumette.
Johnny Depp joins Fantastic Beasts 2!
We knew that Warner Bros. was boosting the planned films from three to five. Now it is also going big in terms of casting, landing Johnny Depp to co-star with Eddie Redmayne in the sequel.
US outlet Deadline report Depp is joining the franchise but we do not know in what capacity yet. There is also a suggestion that eagle-eyed viewers will be able to spot him in a small cameo in the first movie like a small trick that Marvel would pull off.
J.K. Rowling has already confirmed that the second movie has been penned and David Yates will be directing the next film too. Now the casting is coming together we expect shooting to start pretty soon. The first Fantastic Beasts has Redmayne's Newt Scamander arriving in 1920s New York and unwittingly unleashing a host of magical creatures from within his magic case. Which isn't good news for the city's magical population, as relations are already strained between those with abilities and the Muggles of the States, known as the No-Maj. The movie is out on 18 November.
A Series of Unfortunate Events trailer:
Here’s your first look at Netflix's upcoming adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, and we can finally see the hilarious Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf.
The dark comedy-drama will debut on Netflix on Friday, January 13, 2017, with Patrick Warburton as the titular storyteller Snicket. The Baudelaire kids will be brought to life by Supergirl's Malina Weissman and Barbarians Rising star Louis Hynes. Also joining the cast is Academy Award nominee Joan Cusack and The Daily Show favourite Aasif Mandvi.
A Series of Unfortunate Events was previously turned into a hit movie, starring Jim Carrey as the evil Count Olaf and the suave Jude Law as Lemony Snicket but now Netflix want to get involved and make some dollar. See the trailer below.
Dragon Tattoo get its sequel?
Five years ago, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was supposed to be the next big literary adaptation on the block. Instead, David Fincher turned his attention to Gone Girl and now we have had no idea what has been going on… until now.
It is believe The Girl Who Played With Fire is still in the works, but has been put on the back-burner. Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez in talks for the directing position, but currently a waiting game. Apparently, much like Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series before it, Sony is skipping over two of the books in the series and adapting the latest book, The Girl in the Spider's Web. Written by David Lagercrantz, the book involves Mikael Blomqvist's reporting of a brilliant computer scientist who's under threat... by an organization Lisbeth Salander is working with in order to find someone from her past.
Next decision to be made… will Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara keep their jobs? We look forward to keeping a close eye on these developments…
