But will he have an outrageous Cockney accent?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. A batch of stills from the filming of Mary Poppins Returns hit Twitter over the weekend and they give us another look at Emily Blunt filling in Julie Andrews’ rather large (and still loud) shoes as Mary Poppins (looks like her parrot head umbrella has gotten a bit of a redo) as well as our first glimpse at Lin-Manuel Miranda’s character, a lamp lighter named Jack, who I’m sure will confuse a whole generation of children who saw the original and are going to think he’s playing a new Bert.

I know he’ll do his own thing, but I really kinda sorta maybe want to see him do an outrageous Cockney accent. I don’t know if I can handle a Mary Poppins sequel without one…
The cast on this is solid, the look is right. Rob Marshall’s not my most favorite director in the world, but the man knows how to shoot a pretty looking movie and can handle musicals pretty well.
What do you folks think?

Check out Hugh Grant in Love Actually’s (short) sequel!

Prime Minister David and Natalie are still together! Richard Curtis returns with a huge chunk of his Love Actually cast for a long short in support of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. You know how every Christmas a bunch of critics and film blogger types decide to write up some smarmy anti-Love Actually thinkpieces? Fuck ’em. They’re wrong. And you’re wrong if you turn your nose up at the movie, too! I mean, you can be right for you, but you’re definitely wrong for me. I get a ridiculous amount of happiness out of that sappy, silly, emotionally-draining movie and now I don’t feel like it’s Christmas unless I’ve given it at least a couple viewings.
Richard Curtis has a surprise for us unabashed Love Actually fans: he has written and directed a follow up, what sounds like a “Where Are They Now” short film done in support of Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day.
Red Nose Actually will gather together a ton of the cast from the film, including Hugh Grant, Martin McCutcheon, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Liam Neeson, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olsen, Keira Knightley, Andrew Lincoln and Rowan Atkinson and will air at the end of this very month! It’ll show on BBC One on March 24th and on NBC on March 25th!
Over the weekend producer Emma Freud tweeted some first look photos, featuring everybody’s favorite awkward dancer Prime Minister. Her first RT was this coy shot:

Then she went with some more direct images in which you get to see David and Natalie together still after all these years!
 

And here he is.

Stephen King’s IT Part 2 filming soon? Pennywise Lives!

Looks like the grown up second chapter of Stephen King’s IT adaptation is to roll cameras before the first film sees release!

Read the full article on AICN

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Take it with a grain of salt, but a site that compiles a list of in-production films (which I would guess is sourced by agency update reports) called MyEntertainmentWorld has listed the second half of the big Stephen King IT adaptation as going before cameras soon. Like, in a couple weeks soon.
They say the film, under the working title Accordion, will start filming March 17th. That sounds soon, but from what I hear it makes sense. I know director Andres Muschietti wanted to include some flashbacks with the kid cast of the first one and they’re all at the age where even waiting another summer will break continuity.
If you’re not familiar with King’s book… well, first fix that. It’s one of his best novels. But the short version is that the story bounces back and forth between the same group between their pre-teen first run-in with a supernaturally evil clown and their approaching-middle aged selves who have to return to fight it when it pops back up.
The first film (seeing release this September) is the story of the kids forming their group in fictional 1980s Derry, Maine and the adults return in modern day. In the book it was ’50s for the kids and ’80s for the adults, but I guess we’re all getting too damn old now to make that work for today’s audiences.
It’s strange we haven’t heard one peep about casting for the older versions of the Loser’s Club, which is the only thing
