Plans are now moving forward for the upcoming feature film The Devil in the White City which will star Leonardo DiCaprio and will be directed by Martin Scorsese. The film is based on the 2003 novel of the same name and is described like this: Their fates were linked by the magical Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, nicknamed the “White City” for its majestic beauty. Architect Daniel Burnham built it; serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes used it to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder. Both men left behind them a powerful legacy, one of brilliance and energy, the other of sorrow and darkness. The film will mark the sixth collaboration between DiCaprio and Scorsese.

The new film The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens in theatres this week. The film stars Man of Steel Henry Cavill, and The Social Network’s Armie Hammer. All of us at the table have seen the film and we wanted to give you our little review of the film.


As many of you know, Dwayne The Rock Johnson is going to be starring in an R rated Baywatch movie that the star has confirmed will be a raunchy comedy… and now Paramount has found his co-star. Zac Efron is in talks to appear alongside The Rock in the film.

Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern. The Hateful Eight opens in limited release on Christmas day with a wider release in January.

Well speaking of new posters, the first official poster for the upcoming film Burnt has hit the web. The film stars 4-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper as Chef Adam Jones who had it all – and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene played by Sienna Miller.

Any many of you know, the next three Star Wars films are The Force Awakens, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One and Episode VIII in 2017. Many rumors and reports have circulated around what the Star Wars Anthology film in 2018 may be. We can now definitively tell you that the Star Wars Anthology film in 2018 was going to be Boba Fett. Those of us at this table had multiple, completely independent from each other and reliable sources that verify the rumored bounty hunter movie was indeed going to happen.
