Final December we talked concerning the teaser trailer and every thing we knew about Margot Robbie’s Barbie film releasing this summer time.

We’re hopefully getting a Shrek 5…with the unique solid!


It’s no secret that your entire world is in love with Shrek. The primary movie, which got here out in 2001 (really feel previous but?), proved that audiences of any age may take pleasure in an animated fairytale. We fell in love with the titular ogre alongside along with his ladylove Fiona and erstwhile companion, Donkey. Even many years and several other sequels and spin-offs later, the franchise remains to be a favourite amongst, properly, everybody. So when there was some official phrase of a brand new Shrek sequel this week, in fact it’s all anybody’s speaking about.

Hollywood is a fickle factor, although. Offers drop off on a regular basis. When you perhaps shouldn’t get your hopes sky-high, undoubtedly hold your fingers crossed that Shrek 5 turns into legit.

HBO may fulfill their Harry Potter TV present desires in any case.


HBO, along with Warner Bros. Tv, has been taking part in with the thought of constructing a TV present adaptation of the Harry Potter e-book collection for some time now. It shouldn’t come as a lot of a shock. They have already got streaming rights for the films and hosted the reunion particular, Harry Potter twentieth Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, final 12 months. The one factor holding the plan again has been the go-ahead from half the world’s least favourite creator, JK Rowling. If she’s not down with the deal, then it doesn’t occur.

Apparently, issues are trying up for HBO on the Rowling entrance. This week Deadline introduced that negotiations with Rowling are going properly and that Warner Bros. Tv will produce it for HBO if all goes properly. However do we want a Harry Potter present? In fact, many individuals aren’t too thrilled with this information. Even with out the plain moral implications–that are giant and unyielding–a present that goes over every thing we’ve already learn and watched one million instances in one million methods won’t be the boon HBO is hoping for. Then once more, you by no means know!

And that’s it for the large leisure information you’ve missed this week. Follow us for normal insights.
