‘The Angry Birds Movie 2’ Will Officially Smash Into Theaters in 2019

Following a successful collaboration on last year’s The Angry Birds Movie, Sony and Rovio are teaming up for another animated avian outing — that’s not really surprising, since the first film was a fairly big hit at the box office, making it a matter of when, not if, a sequel would happen. That sequel will now officially arrive in 2019, which also happens to be the 10th anniversary of the popular mobile game.

Don Rickles, Iconic Comedian and Actor, Dead at 90

Don Rickles’ talents were seemingly limitless: An outrageous insult comic, a gifted dramatic actor, a welcome sight on stages and screens (big and small), and a constant presence whose career endured for decades, often surpassing his contemporaries. And now he’s gone on to join them, as the legendary Rickles passed away today, April 6, at the age of 90.

Carrie Fisher’s Obituary Request Was Typically Witty and Wonderful

Today we mourn the loss of Carrie Fisher: Iconic actor, talented author, brilliant script doctor and, most of all, an incomparable force to be reckoned with. There are so many great adjectives you could use to describe Fisher: Uncompromising, unapologetic, fierce, witty, relatable, real, honest. She took all of those qualities and put them to work in her books — from memoirs to novels, Fisher had a knack for telling poignant and painful stories with wit and wisdom. Writing a worthy obituary for one of the best and boldest women on this planet or any other is surely an impossible task…so it’s a good thing that the perfect obit basically already exists, and unsurprisingly, Fisher came up with it herself.

Keanu Reeves Is Dressed For Success in ‘John Wick: Chapter Two’ First Look

If you haven’t been paying attention to Twitter for the last hour (or if you’re an enlightened soul who manages to function without an account), then you may have missed the first official photo from John Wick: Chapter Two. Yeah, Keanu Reeves is thinking he’s back, and this time…he’s bringing his tailor. In all seriousness, we could use more action movies about sharp-dressed assassins with great hair who love dogs.

Jared Leto to Work His Method Mayhem on Andy Warhol Biopic

In news that will either delight or horrify you (there seems to be no in between when it comes to Jared Leto), the actor with this year’s most controversial method approach is turning his attention to Andy Warhol for a new biopic about the iconic pop artist / photographer / Studio 54 fixture. And if you’re not particularly thrilled about that news, perhaps this will help: Wolf of Wall Street writer Terence Winter is developing the script.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Star Michael Fassbender Compares Set Design to ‘Blade Runner’

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was a bit divisive, to say the least, so when the director announced plans for a new trilogy of Alien prequels, it left fans with some big questions. We’ve gotten answers to a few of them (no, Noomi Rapace isn’t returning; yes, we will see the origins of the Xenomorph), and though he’s not allowed to reveal much about Alien: Covenant, Michael Fassbender is happy to shed a little more light on the upcoming prequel.

Atari’s ‘Missile Command’ and ‘Centipede’ Will Also Become Movies

As far as source material goes, classic Atari games would be categorized under “things least likely to inspire a movie,” along with objects like vacuum cleaners and steel beams. But the power of nostalgia is strong, and Hollywood is quite fond of taking unlikely properties from your childhood and turning them into movies — like Battleship and Trolls. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Atari’s Missile Command and Centipede games are heading to the big screen.

Marvel Announces Ultimate ‘Captain America’ Marathon For ‘Civil War’

Robert Downey Jr. Is Down For ‘Iron Man 4,’ So Just Forget All That Other Stuff He Said

For the last couple of years, Robert Downey Jr. has said that there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man movie — and he hasn’t appeared to be interested in making another one, to be honest. And that fact is seemingly supported by his Marvel contract, which does not include another solo outing beyond Iron Man 3. When (and if) Marvel re-ups the actor’s contract, that could very well be subject to change, when (and if) Downey Jr. is open to it. That time appears to be now.
