Venom 2 adds to its cast. Robert Longstreet talks returning to the grown-up Lonnie for Halloween Kills. We’ll finally see some more of Wonder Woman 1984 soon. Get another look at HBO’s take on King’s Outsider. Plus, new footage from The Rise of Skywalker, and Jon Favreau teases Baby Yoda reveals to come on The Mandalorian. Spoilers get!
Deadline reports actor Stephen Graham (The Irishman, Boardwalk Empire) has joined the cast of Venom 2 in a currently undisclosed role.
Deadline also has word Nicholas Galitzine (The Craft, Chambers) has been cast as Prince Robert in Camilla Cabello’s upcoming take on Cinderella.
According to Variety, Joe Johnston is now in talks to direct a soft reboot of his own Honey, I Shrunk the Kids under the truncated titled, Shrunk. Josh Gad is attached to play the adult son of Rick Moranis’s character, Wayne Szalinski, who “follows in his father’s footsteps by not only becoming a scientist, but also accidentally shrinking his children.”
In conversation with Bloody Flicks, Robert Longstreet described the adult Lonnie Elam as a “troubled guy” who “knows his wines.”
Lonnie is a complicated, troubled guy who is haunted by his past. Particularly chickening out on going into Michael Myers’ house when he was a kid. I think this broke something in him that fucks with his manhood.
The Elam family is very unorthodox. They love drugs and alcohol more than most. David [Gordon Green] said a funny thing to me about that. He said ‘Lonnie knows his wines.’ Ha!!! I don’t think I’m a very appropriate father but I love my son.”
Later in the interview, Longstreet opines Halloween Kills might be the “nastiest” entry in the franchise to date.
I don’t think I can say anything about Halloween Kills except it might be the nastiest of all of them. It has some terrifying scenes in it.
HallyuLife reports the Train to Busan sequel, Peninsula, is likely to arrive in summer 2020, but “international release has not been decided yet.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The Force Awakens gang won’t allow Rey to fight the First Order alone in the latest Rise of Skywalker TV spot.
In a recent interview with THR, Jon Favreau confirmed that “we’ll learn more about [Baby Yoda] over the course of the season.”
We’ll learn more about him over the course of the season. I think what’s great about what George created is that Yoda proper, the character that we grew up watching, was always shrouded in mystery, and that was what made him so archetypal and so mythic. We know who he is based on his behaviour and what he stands for, but we don’t know a lot of details about where he comes from or his species. I think that’s why people are so curious about this little one of the same species.
Our latest recap is now up, by the way.
