It’s finally the weekend and I have the news from the last few days to make sure that you start it off well.
Rogue One Trailer
Everybody heard that the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story dropped this week. Speaking as somebody who has never even watched a Star Wars movie (don’t kill me) this trailer looks amazing and I feel like I’m going to have marathon all of the movies before I go see it. You can watch it again below but if you want to talk more about it, check out the Video of the Week in the top right corner.
Charlize Theron Cast in Fast 8
From the Fury Road to the Fast & Furious franchise: Charlize Theron has been cast as the villain in the upcoming Fast & Furious film, Fast 8. Obviously I’m happy – any chance to see Charlize Theron is brilliant in my opinion but more seriously, she truly is amazing and I can only see her making this film even better.
New Marvel Series Greenlit At Freeform
Agents of Shield, Agent Carter, Daredevil… there are a lot of Marvel properties on TV at the moment and we’re going to get a new one. Cloak and Dagger – the Marvel duo are getting their own romance/superhero show over on Freeform. There’s no release date yet but I’m wary: in case you were unsure, Freeform (ABC Family) brought us treats such as Pretty Little Liars and Shadowhunters so this will probably have a very different tone to any other Marvel property.
Pedro Pascal Cast in Kingsman 2
The last time a lot of us saw him, his head was being crushed by the Mountain in Game of Thrones but he’s back – head intact. Pedro Pascal will appear in Kingsman: The Golden Circle and play a character named, wait for it, Jack Daniels. I really want to watch this film.
Death Note Goes To Netflix
The live-action adaptation of the popular manga, Death Note, was previously to be produced by Warner Bros. but is now Netflix’s. The film will star Nat Wolff and Margaret Qualley.
That’s it today but if you’ve missed anything this week come back tomorrow for a weekly round-up.
What did you think of the Rogue One trailer? Will Freeform create the first Marvel flop? Are you ready to see the Viper in Kingsman? Let me know in the comments.
