It was confirmed that Tom Hiddleston is one of the actors in talks to play the new James Bond.

One source reports that the upcoming theatrically released animated Spider-Man film (which is already confirmed to be in a separate film universe from the upcoming live-action Spider-Man film) will focus on Miles Morales, not Peter Parker, as Spider-Man. In the comics, Miles Morales is the half-African American, half-Latino character who took over the role of Spider-Man in the Ultimate Marvel Universe (a prominent alternate-reality featured in Marvel Comics) when the Peter Parker from that universe died. He recently joined the main Marvel Comics universe where he and that universe’s Peter Parker share the title of Spider-Man.

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which will star Emma Watson as Belle, hit the internet:

The release date for Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been pushed back nearly a year to January 12, 2018 due the serious injuries that its star Dylan O’Brien sustained while filming a stunt scene.

The first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi/drama/romance The Space Between Us dropped:

A release date for The Little Prince, an award-winning animated film which was originally scheduled to be released in America by Paramount only to be dropped by them and later picked up by Netflix, was announced.

X-Men: Apocalypse was #1 at the box office this weekend and made $65 million over the three-day weekend. It is expected to make an additional $12-$15 million by the end of the four-day holiday weekend.
