Warner Bros. released a new extended clip from Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, featuring the titular team having a showdown with the Justice League.

Longtime The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan will step away from the series in the front half of season 9 — but the actress might not yet be fully saying goodbye to widowed Hilltop leader Maggie Rhee. “I’m in the first six episodes of the show, and then a lot happens in the sixth episode of the show,” Cohan told People. “But the possibilities for how Maggie remains in the story and re-enters the story and kind of stays alive through — not physically alive — but, you know what I’m saying, are multitudinous.”
Bryce Dallas Howard (from the Jurassic World movies) is set to play Elton John’s mother in the biopic Rocketman. Taron Egerton is portraying Elton, while Jamie Bell is on board as Bernie Taupin, and Richard Madden is playing music manager John Reid. The film will include Elton’s emergence as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to becoming a music superstar and his partnership with songwriting collaborator Taupin. Elton John broke out in 1972 with the album “Honky Chateau” and scored a blockbuster with the 1973 album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” which topped the charts for two months in the U.S. and U.K.
