Jamie Bell To Star In Elton John Biopic ‘Rocketman’

Published

Fresh from showcasing his disco dancing as Peter Turner in Paul McGuigan’s ‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool’, a film which earned him a much deserved Best Actor BAFTA nomination, as he starred alongside Annette Bening’s Gloria Grahame.

Jamie Bell is all set to prove his songwriting prowess too by joining ‘Rocketman’, the much anticipated film about Elton John’s remarkable music career, with the Billy Elliot star playing Bernie Taupin.

Taupin has been a mainstay in Elton’s life since they both responded to a Liberty Records advertisement back in 1967, collaborating on a mere thirty albums together over six decades, writing various lyrics of his classic songs. John will be played by Kingsman and Eddie The Eagle’s Taron Egerton, with the actor only last week teasing fans on Twitter that production had begun on the project.

Directing the film will be Dexter Fletcher, who is certainly well versed in musical offerings with ‘Sunshine On Leith’ which featured songs by The Proclaimers and the upcoming Queen offering ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ headlined by Rami Malek.

‘Rocketman’ will be released in May 2019.

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

Published

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
