Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.
Back in 2013 Robert Downey Jr. was reported saying that he would hang up the armor from Iron Man once he turned 50, then turned right around and signed on for Captain America: Civil War and both parts of Avengers: Infinity War. But what the fans really wanted to know was if he would return for an Iron Man 4. Speaking with USA Today about Civil War, the topic of Iron Man 4 came up with Downey Jr. saying it doesn’t look like it’s in the cards with Captain America: Civil War as his “little Iron Man 4” and everyone waiting for the thunder when Avengers: Infinity War comes along.
Deadline is reporting that the advance ticket sales for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are currently outpacing The Avengers, Furious 7, and Deadpool which has sold as many as $25 million worth of tickets, a similar figure close to The Dark Knight Rises – which opened with over $160 million in 2012. Deadline also estimates that it will debut with at least $140 million domestic and upwards of $340 million globally, with the trade cautioning that those numbers are very early numbers which will likely change drastically over the next few weeks.
Sony released the first, red band trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s R-rated animated comedy, Sausage Party, with a work print also debuting at this year’s SXSW. In the Disney/Pixar send-up Sausage Party follows a group of hot dogs coming to understand the truth about where they eventually end up when they go from the market to a human’s home. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote and directed the movie, enlisting the talent of Oscar-winning, Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast composer Alan Menken for the original music, with the voices of Rogen, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton and Paul Rudd along for the ride. It will come to theatres August 12th.

Director of 10 Cloverfield Lane Dan Trachtenberg sat down with /Film recently to discuss his directing duties on the Cloverfield sequel when talk led to his work on the Y the Last Man adaptation with creator Brian K. Vaughan for New Line Cinema. Trachtenberg revealed that he and Vaughan worked extensively on a script but could never crack the story. The rights soon dried up and now, Vaughan has the property back in his possession and is looking to turn Y the Last Man into a television series.
Richard Linklater’s spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some, premiered this past weekend at SXSW Film Festival with a red band trailer dropping yesterday.

The film stars Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Anthony Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, Glen Powell, and Wyatt Russell, and will open in theatres on April 15th.

I heard that Mr. Schnepp had a two-week fear of the water after seeing the original Jaws film as a kid, but can you all name a film that gives you nightmares or at least used to. For me I remember when I saw Aliens as a kid I couldn’t go to sleep with the light off for ages after fearing an Alien lurked in the room and yet I LOVE that film. Are there movies from when you were younger that kept you up at nights, or maybe there are some more recent ones that gave you restless sleep?

Hey guys! Love the show its the best part of my day at work! I have an important question that could affect Batman v Superman. Now that the ultimate Schmoedown is back and opening the same day as Batman v Superman, do you think that the main event of John V Dan is going to impact opening day numbers for Batman v Superman??
