Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck It Ralph 2

Crossovers are commonplace amongst the comic book movies. But one place that is waiting for it to happen is within the Disney universe, well at least its animated one. With so many Disney princesses at their disposal, it was only a matter of time before all of them would be brought together in one place. And we will see that happen in Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2. John C. Reilly returns to voice the title behemoth known to wreck things, while Sarah Silverman reprises her energetic Vanellope von Schweetz.

Some newly released images are giving us a look at the upcoming sequel. Not only do we get to see the Disney princesses gathered together, but we have our first official look at Yesss (voiced by Taraji P. Henson). Check out the images below.

The Darkest Minds

A couple of years back now we found out that Kung Fu Panda 2 and Kung Fu Panda 3 director Jennifer Yuh Nelson had signed on to direct The Darkest Minds. The movie, which was written by Chad Hodge (Good Behavior, Wayward Pines), is an adaptation of author Alexandra Bracken‘s novel of the same name, which is part of an existing trilogy (with a new book on the way) that will no doubt be used in sequels should this perform well at the box office.

Now 20th Century Fox has released an official trailer for the movie, which stars Amandla Stenberg, Harris Dickinson, Skylan Brooks, Miya Cech, Mandy Moore, and Gwendoline Christie. Producing is Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Arrival) and Dan Levine (Arrival, Along Came Polly).

47 Meters Down banner

47 Meters Down
Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Directed by Johannes Roberts
Written by Johannes Roberts, Ernest Riera
Starring Mandy Moore, Claire Holt, Matthew Modine, Chris Johnson, Yani Gellman, Santiago Segura
Lionsgate
PG-13 | 89 minutes
Release date: September 26, 2017

47 Meters Down is a shark movie starring Mandy Moore (This is Us) and Claire Holt (The Originals) as sisters on vacation in Mexico, who decide to go cage diving with Great Whites. That turns out to be a bad decision as their cage plummets to the titular depth, and soon the women are fighting for survival from both the sharks above and the impending loss of oxygen. I’ll be honest, this movie had me at “shark.” I am an unabashed shark movie enthusiast. Spielberg’s JAWS is one of my favorite films ever, and I started writing for Geeks of Doom by covering the Sharknado franchise. So suffice to say, if you put sharks in a movie, I’ll be there to watch it. Unfortunately, sharks are about the only thing 47 Meters Down has going for it.

Movie Review: 47 Meters Down

In 47 Meters Down, Lisa (Mandy Moore) and Kate (Claire Holt) get up close and personal with sharks while cage diving in Mexico

47 Meters Down
Director: Johannes Roberts
Screenwriter: Johannes Roberts, Ernest Riera
Cast: Mandy Moore, Claire Holt, Matthew Modine, Chris J. Johnson, Yani Gellman, Santiago Segura
Distributor: Entertainment Studios
Rated PG-13 | 85 Minutes
Release Date: June 16, 2017

The late Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert once said, “No good movie is too long, just as no bad movie is short enough.” By that measure, 47 Meters Down was the longest 85 minutes of my life. It’s precious time that I’ll never get back. It’s time I would have gladly spent stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic or at the dentist’s office getting holes drilled into every tooth in my head.

Co-written and directed by Johannes Roberts (Storage 24, The Other Side of the Door), 47 Meters Down is a horror-thriller starring Mandy Moore (This Is Us) and Claire Holt (The Vampire Diaries) as sisters who go looking for adventure and find it in a shark-diving excursion that goes horribly wrong.

Last week on This Is Us, it was the usual cryfest that was oh so bittersweet, as Randall (Sterling K. Brown) dreamed Jack and William (Milo Ventimiglia, Ron Cephas Jones) laughed about Randall antics, and William left instructions for the girls to throw his memorial. Although it was a “FUN”eral, it had us in a puddle of tears, as per usual. Kate told Toby (Chrissy Metz, Chris Sullivan) that Jack’s death was her fault, and we started to see what happened that night. Rebecca (Mandy Moore) left for her tour, but they were not on good terms. Kevin (Justin Hartley) got a redo on his opening night.

Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) went to see Rebecca’s (Mandy Moore) band play and jealousy creeped in, especially after Ben (Sam Trammell) revealed they used to date.

Kevin (Justin Hartley) was freaking out about the play’s opening night. But Randall (Sterling K. Brown) had the worst day of all. Willam (Ron Cephas Jones) is worse. Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) had to go out of town. He blanked out at his really important work presentation, and has the shakes. He made a strange call to Kevin, who ran out on his play to hold a crying, rocking Randall.

Warning! Spoilers below for tonight’s episode of This Is Us.

Last time on This Is Us, we got a montage of the “big three” combo birthday parties, until the time kids asked for separate parties, and their loving (and crazy) parents decided to oblige. Randall, who was not upset, and Kate, who was upset, did not get exactly what their parents had hoped. The motive for the parties was Kevin getting close to Kate’s best friend Sophie. He ended up marrying and losing her. Toby helped Kevin (Chris Sullivan, Justin Hartley) come to the unexpected realization that Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) was his true love. He went and declared. William (Ron Cephas Jones) was feeling great having quit chemo, and hijacked Randall (who was losing cred at work) to go shopping and teach him how to drive. The end of the episode gave us a glimpse of Jack’s funeral (Noooo!!!!), with Rebecca and his teenage kids mourning him.

Last time on This Is Us, the mantra was… “Nothing bad ever happens on Christmas Eve.” It was Christmas time for everyone, and in the past, Kate had to get her appendix taken out on Christmas Eve, while Dr. K may be dying. In the present, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) thought his family night would be a wash as everyone seemed to cancel. He went to his office party and literally talked a friend off a ledge. Then all of his family showed up and it was as lovely as you could expect. Even William’s (Ron Cephas Jones) special friend came – Randall’s kid outed him. Kevin (Justin Hartley) went to Sloane’s (Milana Vayntrub) for Chanukah and it was adorable. Kate (Chrissy Metz) was miserable because she had broken up with Toby (Chris Sullivan), who swooped in and declared he could not live without her in front of his family… then crashed into the table later on with what looked like a heart attack. Okay, that part was not so lovely. It left us hanging as to whether Kate would lose her happiness.

Spoilers below.
