In an interesting twist that is sure to have “Charlie’s Angels” diehard fans in a tizzy (they exist, right?), Patrick Stewart has been hired to portray Bosley in the new reboot film.
According to THR, the veteran “Star Trek” and “X-Men” actor is in final negotiations for the role that would see him join the Kristen Stewart-starring action reboot. In the film, he will star opposite Elizabeth Banks (who also co-wrote and is directing the film) as one of the multiple Bosleys. That’s right, in this version of the classic story, Charlie Townsend’s detective agency, appropriately titled the Townsend Agency, is now a security and intelligence agency, with branches all around the world. And the character of Bosley, who we only saw one of in the TV series and recent film franchise, will be the codename given to the liaisons of Townsend that interacts with the titular Angels.
The new “Charlie’s Angels” film is said to focus on just one of those teams of spies, who are to be the next generation Angels. As mentioned, Stewart is the leading name of the new trio of women. However, she is joined by “Power Rangers” actress (and future Jasmine in the live-action “Aladdin”) Naomi Scott and young British actress Ella Balinska.

She'll steal your powers. She'll steal your powers, and your heart! This 9-inch tall sculpture of the X-Men's Rogue is based on her famous Savage Land storyline, in which the power-absorbing mutant found herself stranded with Magneto in the Antarctic paradise. Based on Jim Lee'sartwork, this 9-inch tall PVC statue shows Rogue in her distinctive outfit from the story, and features detailed sculpting and paint applications. Packaged in a full-color window box.
Rogue has always been a favorite character of mine. Now sadly my collection of Rogue, and X-Men statues in general is pretty bare. So when Diamond Select Toys announces they were making a Savage Land version of Rogue I knew it would be one to add to my Marvel comic line of Statues
I'm going to start with the face. It's perfect I can't say anything else. It looks like the drawing has come to life. From the lips to the eyes to even the eye lashes this is amazing on every level. Lips, nose, cheekbones you name it. It's perfectly sculpted and painted to look like a comic book drawing. The brownish hair looks great with the strip of white mixed into it. It looks great as the hair is sculpted like it's blowing. Its not a simple paint job. It's done real life with a few of the White strands mixing around the rest of the hair. The green headband and the bone tooth necklace add a nice privmative touch.
Notice how her one leg is firmly planted down and the other is leaned behind her. That combined with her finger tips wrapping around the top and bottom of her spear you get the perfect look of not only a classic comic pose, but the impression she is ready to spring into action. I can't complement Diamond Select Toys enough when it comes to placement on their satues. The nuance about them is so beautiful they really have a 3D look and feel. You can also see her brown leather knife holder placed over her shorts
From the back you can see how the big hair flows down past the shoulders. One thing you have to take notice of is the muscle sculpting. From the back to the legs,even the flexed calf muscle, everything is sculpted to be anatomically correct. That along with the fantastic painting and shading give it not only a real look, but true to the comic at the same time.
The base is simple yet effective. A small piece of jungle rock with a plant growing out of the side. It's shaded in to look like a dirt and sand have formed over a piece of rock. Adding the small pice of growing plant life is simple, yet just enough to give it a slight touch of color
Overall this is yet another amazing statue from Diamond Select Toys. I couldn't wait to open mine and place it right next to my comic book style Black Widow, which I previously reviewed. Collectors need to go out and add this to their collection now.
Overall 5 out of 5 Stars

Brett Cullen has been cast as Thomas Wayne in the upcoming The Joker movie from director Todd Phillips.
ComicBook.com has confirmed the casting with Warner Bros., with Cullen stepping into the role once occupied by Alec Baldwin. Baldwin, however, dropped out of the role when a scheduling conflict did not allow him to appear alongside Joaquin Phoenix's Joker in the DC Comics villain's origin story film.
Cullen is best known for roles in Ghost Rider as Barton Blaze and The Dark Knight Rises where he played a Congressman. Clearly, this is not his first time working with Warner Bros. on a DC Comics film. His other credits include roles in Person of Interest, The Replacements, as Goodwin Stanhope on ABC's hit show LOST.
The Thomas Wayne fans will meet in Joker is not one described as one aiming for fan-favoritism. Cullen's version of the character is expected to be a less friendly iteration, playing a role in the Joker's origin story in one way or another. It will feature a very young Bruce Wayne, years before he put on a cape to become Batman.

After catching a first look at 3x Academy Award-nominee Joaquin Phoenix as "Arthur" earlier today, Just Jared has confirmed that principal photography has officially commenced on Todd Phillips' upcoming Joker standalone movie by sharing some intriguing new set photos.
The photos, which you can view at the link below, aren't particularly revealing as we see Phoenix interact with another actor that's dressed as a clown. He's also pictured laughing quite maniacally after he presumably tells the clown a joke - something that doesn't seem to go over well with his audience. The photos also confirm the presence of an iconic location from the comics as the pair stand in front of a building that has "Amusement Mile" painted on the side.
In addition to Phoenix (Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot), the cast also features Primetime Emmy-nominee Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Golden Globe-winner Frances Conroy (American Horror Story), Marc Maron (GLOW), Josh Pais (Ray Donovan), and 2x Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro (The Irishman).

The original Halloween is heading back to theaters this fall in honor of its 40th anniversary. John Carpenter's original slasher classic remains a defining moment not just for the horror genre, but for cinema in general. It's the birthplace of Michael Myers, one of the most iconic figures in horror history and helped define the slasher genre. Now, ahead of the release of the highly-anticipated sequel, the movie that started it all will be making its return to the big screen.
Halloween will begin its 40th anniversary re-release later this month on September 27. There will be screenings held at theaters all across the country at various times between the start date and throughout the month of October. So there will be plenty of chances to catch the movie before seeing the new Halloween when it drops on October 19. John Carpenter had this to say about the upcoming re-release.
"I'm thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters, as we prepare for the release of the sequel. Having both back in theaters this fall is remarkable."
It's going to be a great fall season for horror fans. Not only will many have the chance to see the movie that started one of the most enduring franchises in history on the big screen for the first time ever, but it is also coming to 4K Ultra HD, and the early buzz says director David Gordon Green's new Halloween sequel is incredible. The new movie serves as a direct sequel to the original, with Jamie Lee Curtis returning as Laurie Strode to take on Michael Myers 40 years later. She's spent all of that time preparing for his inevitable return and is ready to kill him before he can finish the job he started all those years ago.
For participating theaters and local showtime information, head on over to CineLife Entertainment, who have partnered with Trancas International Films to make these anniversary screenings possible.
