‘Aladdin’ Footage of Will Smith’s Singing Genie Divides CinemaCon: ‘It Is Pure Nightmare Fuel’

One of the biggest question marks going into Disney’s CinemaCon presentation was what the studio was going to do in order to win over “Aladdin” skeptics. The upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s 1992 animated film has been something of a critical punching bag since the first footage of Will Smith as the blue CGI Genie debuted in February. While an official trailer released in March provided a better look at the VFX used to turn Smith into the genie, the actor’s human look as the character and the film’s artificial sets drew more criticism.

Aladdin” is one of Disney’s big summer tentpole releases, and more pressure has been added to the film in the wake of the middling critical response and box office for Tim Burton’s “Dumbo.” CinemaCon was the perfect place for Disney to start turning the critical tides in favor of “Aladdin,” and the studio did not succeed.

‘The Gentlemen’ First Look: Guy Ritchie Will Return to His ‘Vintage’ Roots After ‘Aladdin’

‘The Gentlemen’ First Look: Guy Ritchie Will Return to His ‘Vintage’ Roots After ‘Aladdin’
For fans of Guy Ritchie’s particular brand of action cinema, the news that the “Snatch” and “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” filmmaker was moving into the live-action Disney remake world with this year’s “Aladdin” might have been bit worrisome. What about the next “RocknRolla”? Never fear, because Ritchie has already teed up his first post-“Aladdin” film, and if a first look is to be believed, he’s back in his classic crime wheelhouse.

Previously known as “Toff Guys” and “Bush,” Ritchie’s “The Gentlemen” will see the British filmmaker teaming up with mini-major Stx Entertainment, which showed off a first look at the film during its Tuesday morning CinemaCon presentation. And it’s vintage Ritchie: a crime thriller with plenty of laughs, a majorly stacked cast, and a few gags that might require a bit of a translation across the pond.

Shazam! Confronts His One True Nemesis In New HD Photo

Few big-time actors have played the villain quite as often as Mark Strong, whose performances across Sherlock Holmes, Sharpe’s Mission and even Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla have made him a bankable favorite amongst Hollywood studios in search of a scenery-chewing baddie. Which brings us to Shazam!

For in this one, Strong is on board to play Doctor Thaddeus Sivana, a crooked scientist driven mad by jealousy. You see, long before Billy Batson gained control of those abilities, Sivana believed he himself was worthy of Shazam’s god-like power, thereby seeding a great rivalry between the two titans.

Mind you, considering Billy Batson is really a young, wide-eyed kid deep down inside, Zachary Levi’s performance has been imbued with a child-like sense of wonder and curiosity, as can be seen in this newly-unveiled image from Empire Magazine. Embedded below, it sees Billy Batson confront Sivana as Shazam.

Watch: ‘Krypton’ Teaser Reveals the Syfy Series’ Superior Take on Brainiac

We haven't seen much from Syfy's upcoming Superman-ish series Krypton just yet, but a new behind-the-scenes video gives us the first great look at Blake Ritson (RocknRolla) as the DC Comics character, Brainiac. If that name sounds familiar, it's because the sometimes-villain / sometimes-hero briefly appeared on The CW's Supergirl and the results were ... not great. And that's not a knock on the fantastic Jesse Rath, but rather a nod towards just how good Syfy's version of Brainiac looks. The introduction to Brainiac, ahead of the show's arrival on …

Detective Pikachu Cast Revealed as Principal Photography Begins
The first live action Pokemon movie is now one step closer to hitting the big screen as filming has officially started on Detective Pikachu with an impressive cast list.

I still haven't quite wrapped my brain around the fact that we're getting a Detective Pikachu movie, let alone with Ryan Reynolds providing the voice of the titular Pokemon. Frankly, the fact we've gone this long without a live-action Pokemon film is baffling in and of itself, but moreso our first one is Detective Pikachu. The game itself (from which the film borrows its story) hasn't even launch in the States, but gamers will finally get their chance to check it out in March, which will

Gerard Butler interview: Geostorm, Angel Has Fallen and more

Duncan Bowles Oct 23, 2017

Gerard Butler chats to us about Geostorm, his bike accident, and Olympus Has Fallen 3...

Geostorm is a film that is so bombastic, it feels like a crime to write its name in lowercase letters – Geostorm fits much better and conveys the gloriously over the top shenanigans that Gerard Butler finds himself at the centre of, as the planet Earth has set about imploding after no one paid any attention to climate change. Thankfully Butler’s character, Jake Lawson, has created a net of satellites in space that can prevent future weather based disasters, until it appears that someone might have set about turning ‘Dutch Boy’ (the control system) into a weapon…

Geostorm is a throwback to the golden era of nineties disaster movies in the best way; if you’ve ever loved the likes of Armageddon, Dante’s Peak or Twister (to name a few) then deciding
