Most significantly, it’s been revealed that Benicio Del Toro will be playing the enigmatically named DJ (which I’m sure is short for a much longer, more spoilery name), who plays an “unscrupulous drifter,” which the galaxy seems to be filled with.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Sailing for $80 Million Launch, ‘Baywatch’ at $40 Million

21 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Johnny Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is poised to dominate Memorial Day moviegoing, while Dwayne Johnson’s “Baywatch” should deliver decent results during the holiday.

Forecasts place the fifth iteration of Disney’s “Pirates” franchise at about $80 million at 4,276 North American locations during the Friday-Monday weekend. The international launch — which begins Wednesday — should deliver between $150 million and $175 million.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” is only the third wide release film in 2017 for Disney, which has so far seen blockbuster results from “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” with a combined $1.8 billion in global box office so far. The estimated budget for “Dead Men” is $230 million, so Disney needs to see the same kind of ticket sales.

30 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate released the heartbreaking-turned-heartwarming trailer for “Wonder,” the drama starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay.

The film, based on the New York Times bestselling novel of the same name written by R.J. Palacio, shares the story of a young boy struggling to overcome facial differences.

Roberts and Wilson play the protective parents of August “Auggie” Pullman (Tremblay), a fifth grader who is starting school for the first time. By the time he’s 10, Auggie has had 27 surgeries to help him breathe, see, and hear without a hearing aid — but none have made him look like the other kids, he explains in the trailer.

As Auggie learns to navigate school, he is faced with both bullies and friends. Auggie becomes an unlikely hero as his journey teaches his family, classmates, and community about compassion, acceptance, and inner beauty — and retains a sense of humor.

Director Chad Stahelski Talks ‘John Wick 3,’ Promises More Cool Reveals Over Big Budget Setpieces

39 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When it comes to sequels, there’s always a balance between taking the big studio check and running with it, expanding the scope and size of the franchise, or being considered in how the world of the series is expanded. This winter’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” had the right touch of opening up the underground universe of assassins that we glimpsed in the original, and allowing the story to include more international locations, but never to the point of obscuring the film’s most important focus: John Wick.
