Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was finally unveiled this past weekend at its world premiere event at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. Soon after, the first reactions to the film hit online and the response is overwhelmingly positive. Praise is being heaped on the film in pretty much every department—the action, the story, the characters with some people even going so far as to say it’ll crack their personal Top 10 lists of the year.

Ever since Tim Miller exited the production of Deadpool 2 over creative differences, many reports have hit online stating that Miller and star/producer Ryan Reynolds disagreed about the scope of the sequel and the casting of the character of Cable. During an interview on CG Garage, Miller finally spoke out about why he left the project, also clearing up that he was never going to cast Kyle Chandler as Cable. Speaking about it all, Miller said he wanted to make the same kind of movie made the first time around.

It’s Monday which means it’s time for the weekend box office report brought to you AMC theatres. Disney’s Moana snagged the No 1 spot for a third weekend in a row, taking in $18.8 million. Office Christmas Party opened in the No 2 spot on its first weekend of release, taking in $17.5 million. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them made $10.78 million for the No 3 spot at the box office with Paramount’s Arrival taking the No 4 spot with $5.6 million. And rounding out the top five was Doctor Strange. The Marvel release took the No 5 spot with $4.6 million bringing its domestic total to $222.3 million.

The first trailer for the eighth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise, The Fate of the Furious, has arrived online from Universal Pictures. The movie finds Vin Diesel‘s Dom and his crew facing off against Jason Statham‘s returning villain along with Charlize Theron as a brand new adversary. Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray is helming the film that also stars stars Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges. The Fate of the Furious opens in theaters on April 14, 2017.

According to a report from Deadline, Sony has set the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming to debut in theatres on July 5, 2019 while also setting Bad Boys 4, the sequel to the recently titled Bad Boys For Life to Memorial Day weekend, where it is now set to hit on May 24th, 2019. Bad Boys 4 will now be going up against Warner Bros’ Minecraft, while the Spider-Man sequel is largely in the clear over that Independence Day weekend. Bad Boys for Life, the third movie in the franchise, will be directed by Joe Carnahan and will debut in theatres on January 28th, 2018.

According to a report from THR, Zack Snyder has lined up a window to shoot his long in development passion project The Last Photograph, with the reason being because Justice League 2 has been pushed back in order to make room for Ben Affleck’s Batman movie. Justice League 2 was originally scheduled to hit on June 14, 2019, with an unknown DCEU movie dated for November 1, 2019. Though it remains unconfirmed, many outlets speculate that Ben Affleck’s Batman will take the June 14th, 2019 release date with Justice League 2 taking over the November 1st, 2019 release.

Good Morning Collider Crew! Now that Spider-Man is officially a part of the Marvel Universe (and was part of Team Iron Man), do you think that Peter Parker had to sign the Sokovia Accords? If not, do you think the film will address it at all? Also, do you think the odds are above or below 80% that the new Spider-Man trailer beats the number of views that The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer had in a 24 hour period? Thanks for all the entertainment!

Greetings Collider Crew. One the most anticipated films for many people next is War for the Planet of the Apes, #ApesonHorses. My question is, do you think it will cross the billion-dollar mark? Rise made almost $482 million dollars & then Dawn made a little over $710 million dollars. I personally feel it will come close but won’t due to the massive competition it will face in July. Does it rely on the quality and so – if it’s the best in the Apes series, will it have a chance? Thanks for taking my question & bring on the Filthy!!!
