The panel over at Star Wars Celebration this weekend for upcoming series, The Mandalorian, were reluctant to reveal any footage in the live-stream beyond the indoor crowd (save for the ones who braved it with their phones and leaked it on YouTube). Nevertheless, Disney/Lucasfilm proudly revealed several first looks at some of the key characters in costume via social media which you can view below.
Helping to fill-up the ‘Men On A Mission’ genre of thrillers is J.C. Chandor whose follow-up to A Most Violent Year now has an ensemble cast setting the stakes in Triple Frontier. Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac, Garett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal lead the charge with a theatrical open on March 6 to be proceeded by a Netflix rollout on March 13.
A harrowing mission awaits five men looking for a grand steal in the official trailer now online for director J.C. Chandor’s new crime thriller, Triple Frontier. For this, you could even say the road to the film’s completion was equally enduring at best – once housed at Paramount back in 2010 and serving as the starting point for a marathon development period that lasted eight years.
WONDER WOMAN 2 Hails Gal Gadot And Chris Pine In A New Era With New Foes As Cameras Roll For A 2019 Release
Warner Bros. Pictures has undergone a bit of a facelift behind the scenes in the last several months following recent questionable results with its DCEU films. Thankfully all else continues with Patty Jenkins moving forward with the production of Wonder Woman 2 just as Gal Gadot rejoins actor Chris Pine from the original film and which may take some explaining for fans otherwise not knowing of the source material. I’m sure not so… color me intrigued, pictures and deets below notwithstanding (click for larger viewing).
BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fast forward to the 1980s as Wonder Woman’s next big screen adventure finds her facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah. Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow up to the Super Hero’s first outing, last summer’s record-breaking “Wonder Woman,” which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office.
“Wonder Woman 1984” will also be helmed by acclaimed director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot in the title role. As previously announced, the film also stars Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. And Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor.
Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Patty Jenkins, Stephen Jones and Gal Gadot are producing the film. Rebecca Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada are the executive producers.
Joining her behind the scenes are several members of Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” team, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (“Amélie”), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (“Topsy-Turvy”). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (“United 93”) will cut the film.
Production will take place in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Virginia, and in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands.
Set to open in theaters November 1, 2019, “Wonder Woman 1984” is based on the character created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Earl and Caldwell wrote the script with a cast that lists newcomer Sophie Thatcher as daughter to the father role by Jay Duplass, and with Pedro Pascal, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand and Anwan Glover also starring. Check out the trailer!
It’s funny. I haven’t had a lot of incentive to get into such a variety of streaming TV programs what with all the amime I’m already taking in. However, being already familiar with the work of actor Pedro Pascal and reading of his latest attachment to The Equalizer 2 for Sony Pictures and Escape Artists, I’m actually inclined now to check out Netflix’s Wagner Moura-led crime series, Narcos when I get around to it.
The road to fruition for upcoming action thriller, Triple Frontier, has been a long and winding one. The revolving door of actors dates back as far as 2010 with recent news of Channing Tatum, Mahershala Ali, Tom Hardy, Ben Affleck and Casey Affleck all circling the film at some point this year until departing the project while it eventually transitioned from Paramount over to Netflix back in May.
News finally broke on Wednesday for the film revealing talks are happening with actors Mark Wahlberg (Transformers: The Last Knight), Charlie Hunnam (King Arthur), Garrett Hedlund (Mudbound) and Pedro Pascal (The Great Wall) with actress Adria Arjona (The Belko Experiment) also starring. As Deadline writes, details are still nil while what is know is that the film will center its story in the notorious border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where the Iguazu and Parana rivers converge.
A Most Violent Year helmer J.C. Chandor will direct from his own revisal of Mark Boal’s script with production eyeing an August start in Hawaii and Colombia.

HBO’s Game Of Thrones is one of those shows I usually end up having to watch in pieces, particularly because there simply aren’t enough hours of the day for me to enjoy much of anything. Thankfully however, I did get to enjoy the most recent episode featuring actor Pedro Pascal in last week’s episode (and I will not say what I saw, but if you saw it too, know that I felt your pain).
