The Greatest Showman is a movie musical about P.T. Barnum – the founder of America’s first circus. Movie musicals are not known for their historical accuracy, but – considering that there are many biographies of the man which paint him as anywhere from an honest entrepreneur to a cynical con man making a fortune by exploiting the pain of his collection of freaks and oddities – this film is far too superficial.

20th Century Fox has obtained the rights to develop BOOM! Studios girl detective series Goldie Vance as a film.
Set at a historical Miami resort, Goldie Vance—16, mixed race, precocious and highly detail-oriented—has ambitions of becoming the hotel’s in-house detective, but getting embroiled in uncovering an international crime ring will challenge her in ways she never imagined.
Goldie Vance will be adapted and directed by Rashida Jones.
Consider, if you will, the scratchy yellow font on the poster for The New Mutants. Harsh against the blacks/grays of the background, it seems to be more of a warning than a reassurance.

20th Century Fox has revealed the newest cast members of the AVATAR SEQUELS who recently explored Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for inspiration. Concurrent production began in Manhattan Beach, CA on Monday, September 25th on the four sequels, the first of which will be released December 18, 2020.
There are a handful of sequels that are as good as (or better than) their progenitors – The Godfather 2, Superman II, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and The Dark Knight come to mind – and now Kingsman: The Golden Circle joins that elite list.
Following the heavy expositional load of the thoroughly entertaining first film, The Golden Circle expands character development (of Eggsy, at least) and introduces a delightfully pragmatic villain who has the best of intentions (and hopes to profit handsomely from them, too).
