Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin is probably going to be a little longer than the animated version, so there’s plenty of space to add in a character or a subplot or two. Which seems to be why Billy Magnussen has just been added to the cast, as mystery newcomer “Prince Anders.”
Christmas has been around for hundreds of years, but our version of Christmas began with a very small novel, written by a probably average height man. Charles Dickens is credited with coming up with the very Christmas-ness of Christmas, that holiday spirit that drives people to light candles and gather family and drape pine branches and holly berries all over their furniture. With A Christmas Carol, Dickens revolutionized our portrayal of the holiday season, an evolution that will be dramatized by Dan Stevens and Dan Stevens’ wig in The Man Who Invented Christmas.
Settle in, Jon Bernthal fans, we’ve got a double-header of news for you.

There’s something up with Stephen King — rather, his house, which looks to have been taken over by a certain sinister clown.

Now, Melissa McCarthy is leading the project, and her Bridesmaids co-star Maya Rudolph joined up this week to help solve crime.
Adam McKay’s Dick Cheney biopic, now titled Backseat, will see Hollywood chameleon Christian Bale transform himself into the controversial 46th vice president. McKay is in the process of assembling quite a cast, and today he’s added Independence Day president himself, Bill Pullman, to play a different seat in the White House.
Darren Aronofsky’s mother! is intriguing just for the very fact that we know next to nothing about it, besides who’s starring and a few quick glimpses of some trailer action. But the new poster for the movie (the latest in a slew of one-sheets, each more fascinating than the last) is our biggest clue yet as to what this movie will be about, and what other classic horror movie it was influenced by.
