Collider reports Priyanka Chopra is in talks to join Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt’s new film as Dr Sara Nix, “a psychologist who’s assigned to monitor Duncan, and who may or may not develop feelings for him despite the professional nature of their relationship”.
The Terminator Fans claim to have “eyewitness” proof Mackenzie Davis is playing a machine in Terminator 6. According to the report, a fan witnessing the shoot in Cartagena, Spain spotted “a muscular blond woman, 1.80m tall, with an arm made up as if she had suffered a deep wound, letting on a metallic skeleton”.

Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek/Star Trek 4
Speaking with the Edmonton Journal, Simon Pegg stated he “can’t see” Quentin Tarantino making his near-mythic Star Trek movie in the next six years.
I can’t see him doing it for five or six years, by which time we might be too old anyway.
Pegg also offered an update on S.J. Clarkson’s relatively more immediate Star Trek 4.
I’ve met with S.J. and she’s fizzing with ideas and she has the right attitude. She’s reverent, but she’s not slavish. In terms of the story, I have a vague knowledge, but it’s nothing I can talk about. I’m also doing something that is separate to that.
The Suspiria remake runs 152-minutes long, a full hour longer than Argento’s original.
You might have seen that #Suspiria is 152 minutes. How much of it will you be able to watch?
