Incredibles 2 keeps breaking records. After earning $180 million over the weekend, the best opening ever for an animated film, the Disney-Pixar production nabbed $23.9 million Monday, the best-ever for an animated film. (The previous record was set by Shrek 2, which earned $23.4 million on May 31, 2004).
Matt Reeves’s The Batman may share a continuity with Joker, Todd Phillips’s Joker origin film starring Joaquin Phoenix, speculates entertainment writer Mark Hughes, who covers DC movies for Forbes. If these rumors prove true, that would mean these movies are in their own universe unrelated to the existing DCEU, which houses the polarizing films of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, among others.
A scene where a character reveals she is a lesbian was cut from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Actress Daniella Pineda said in an interview that a line of dialogue that was cut from the film would have revealed her character Zia Rodriguez was a lesbian. She said she understood why they cut it due to time, but said the scene was cool because it gave insight into her character.
Fran Drescher really wants to reboot The Nanny, she tells Entertainment Tonight. She and ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson co-created the sitcom. She said: “We’re working on a very big project. It’s going to be very exciting for the fans, but I’m not at liberty to announce it yet. But it’s gonna be big.” The series ended with her and her handsome boss Maxwell Sheffield getting married and having kids. “The thing is our show would be the same characters 20 years later. We can’t just pick up where we left off,” she said. “But in a way, that could be really good because the show can have a whole fresh bend to it.”
MGM and Warner Bros have shared the first poster for Creed II. The Michael B. Jordan-starring drama is set to pit him against the son of Rocky and Apollo Creed’s nemesis Ivan Drago. Steven Caple Jr. is helming. Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad and Dolph Lundgren also star. The film opens November 21st.
