1) Variety is reporting that Jude Law has entered negotiations to join Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn in Marvel’s Captain Marvel. Law will be playing Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, who becomes a mentor to Larson’s Danvers as she tries to figure out her new powers. Half Nelson directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are directing the film that will be set in the ’90s before the Avengers Assembled, with the Skrulls and Mendelsohn playing the villains in the movie. Captain Marvel is set to hit theatres on March 8, 2019.
According to a report from THR, analysts predict that Star Wars The Last Jedi will open above $200 million dollars domestic, putting the eighth episode in the Skywalker saga the fourth movie ever to achieve such a feat after The Force Awakens, The Avengers, and Jurassic World. Although THR doesn’t specify if they think The Last Jedi can beat out The Force Awakens, many predictions place the movie opening below The Force Awakens’ $248 million domestic haul from two years back.

Warner Bros. and Warner Animation Group have released the first trailer for the animated adventure-comedy, Smallfoot. Starring the voices of Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Danny DeVito and LeBron James, Smallfoot turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human. Smallfoot arrives in theaters on September 28, 2018.
Universal Pictures (via a tweet from Colin Trevorrow) have released the first trailer tease for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The small tease will be attached to a longer trailer that some expect to debut ahead of Star Wars The Last Jedi.
