Movie News Round-up: Next ‘Transformers’ villain, ‘Kingsman 2’ cast addition, ‘Planet Hulk,’ ‘Rogue One’ reshoots, and more


Lots of new movie details are trickling out of the studios after the long Memorial Day weekend! We’ve got new details on Transformers, Warcraft, Kingsman, Thor 3, Justice League, and Rogue One!

Transformers: The Last Knight

Megatron is back as the Autobots’ arch-nemesis in the upcoming fifth Transformers film, Transformers: The Last Knight! Megatron was noticeably absent in the fourth installment/partial reboot, Transformers: Age of Extinction. Looks like he couldn’t handle staying out of the spotlight any longer!

Transformers: The Last Knight is set to hit theaters on June 23, 2017!

Warcraft movie

Director Duncan Jones has been making the publicity rounds promoting his adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s wildly popular game franchise/universe, Warcraft. The director promised that if the movie has a good reception, we’ll likely get a director’s cut, adding 40 minutes to the film’s run time, on Blu-ray and DVD.

Warcraft will hit theaters on June 10th, 2016 in North America, and is already playing in Europe!

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Secret Service was a surprise R-rated hit last year, entering the spy genre with an exaggerated-but-serious-and-fun take on films such as James Bond. It worked, with audiences clamoring for more, and shortly thereafter, the studio behind the movie greenlit a sequel. The latest actor to join the cast of The Golden Circle is Jeff Bridges, where he’ll join returning stars Taron Egerton and Mark Strong, as well as new faces including Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, and Pedro Pascal.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is set to hit theaters on June 16, 2017!

Thor: Ragnarok

Looks like we’ll be getting an adaptation of the Planet Hulk storyline from Marvel’s comics as part of the Thor: Ragnarok movie! In the upcoming film, Bruce Banner/the Hulk will don the Planet Hulk armor seen in the comics. It’ll be interesting to see how this meshes with the rest of the Thor story!

Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theaters on July 28th, 2017!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Page Six is hearing that the upcoming Star Wars movie, Rogue One, is set for four weeks of reshoots ahead of its premiere in theaters in a little over six months. Disney is rumored to be a bit disappointed with what they’ve seen so far, but we can imagine it’s pretty hard to live up to the incredible reception The Force Awakens had last year.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit theaters on December 16th, 2016!

Justice League

After initially doubting his return to DC’s Cinematic Universe following Batman vs. Superman, Lex Luther actor Jese Eisenberg has confirmed that he’ll reprise his role as Superman’s nemesis in the upcoming Justice League film. Details on his involvement are scarce, so we’ll have to wait for filming to begin to find out more!

Justice League is set to hit theaters on November 17th, 2017!
