Yes, you read it right. In a world filled with reboots and sequels, you probably haven't heard that Braveheart is getting its own sequel. The reason is that it did not get much coverage in media and that obviously it does not feature William Wallace, as he famously - spoiler alert - died at the end of the original film, but only after saying "freedom."
And no, the movie is not only starting to shoot, it is ready for primetime and will be released... in only two weeks from now.
Titled Robert the Bruce, the movie follows the eponymous character following the death of Wallace. Admirers of Braveheart will appreciate to know that Scottish actor Angus Macfadyen is reprising his role.
Dark Phoenix, the latest installment of the X-Men franchise, has unfortunately tanked at the box-office, making only a mere $33 million nationwide last week-end.
Following the box-office abysmal results, movie writer and director Simon Kinberg has taken the full responsibility of the failure.
"It clearly is a movie that didn’t connect with audiences that didn't see it, it didn't connect enough with audiences that did see it. So that's on me."
Days after the release of Dark Phoenix, many fans are utterly disappointed by the final chapter in the saga, saying that the film did not learn from the mistakes of The Last Stand.
Warner Bros. Pictures just released the trailer from Doctor Sleep, the sequel to The Shining, released in 1980.
Watch it below:
“Doctor Sleep” continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.
Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.
Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
“Doctor Sleep” stars Ewan McGregor (“Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III,” “T2 Trainspotting”) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “The Greatest Showman”) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.
Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.
Flanagan’s behind-the-scene creative team was led by director of photography Michael Fimognari (“The Haunting of Hill House”), production designers Maher Ahmad (“Get Hard”) and Elizabeth Boller (“Hush”), and costume designer Terry Anderson (“Den of Thieves”). The music score is composed by The Newton Brothers (“The Haunting of Hill House”).
Slated for release in North America on November 8, 2019, and globally beginning on October 30, 2019, “Doctor Sleep” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Walt Disney Animation Studios has just released the trailer of the massively anticipated sequel Frozen II, which will surely become one of the most successful movies of the year.
Watch it below:
Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she'll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey.

From the Academy Award-winning team — directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, Frozen 2 opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2019.
