Update 2: It's official! Daniel Craig will reprise his role as a British secret agent under the direction of Danny Boyle in the 25th James Bond film, per EON Productions. Production is scheduled to begin on December 3, 2018, with the film still set to release in the U.S. on November 8, 2019. Both Craig and Boyle have previously confirmed their involvement with the film, so what's really new is the production start date and the announcement that Universal Pictures will handle international distribution. (MGM and Annapurna Pictures will distribute in the U.S.) John Hodge's screenplay obviously turned out well. Now the speculation can turn to what sort of adventure we'll be seeing next year.

Just as one Star Wars movie is released, another is revealed to be in the works. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Logan writer/director James Mangold is now making a standalone Boba Fett spin-off. This would be another Star Wars Story installment, Solo: A Star Wars Story, which hits theaters this weekend. Mangold is currently working on the screenplay and then will direct the presumed prequel, which will focus on the popular bounty hunter character seen in the original Star Wars trilogy. The last we saw Boba Fett, he was being swallowed by the Sarlacc in the Great Pit of Carkoon in Return of the Jedi. In materials since made non-canon, the character had turned out to have survived. This isn't the first time we've heard of a solo Boba Fett...

Five years after the Gareth Edwards-helmed reboot of Godzilla, the sequel will finally arrive in theaters, just slightly later than we originally expected. Warner Bros. has changed the release date for Godzilla 2 (tentatively known as Godzilla: King of the Monsters) from March 22, 2019 to May 31, 2019. Normally, a delay would seem to be a problem. But this one is just two months, and the move is to a prime "summer" weekend, meaning the studio considers it worthy of traditional blockbuster season status.  The previous installment was released in mid-May 2014, and since then we've also gotten a sort of prequel within the same "MonsterVerse" franchise with Kong: Skull Island, which debuted in March of last year and made much less at the...
