Movies: Daisy Ridley, Margot Robbie Lend Voices To Sisters Of “Peter Rabbit”


The Last Jedi herself, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Best Actress nominee Margot Robbie and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's Elizabeth Debicki provide the voices of Peter Rabbit's triplet sisters in Sony Pictures Animation's new delightful comedy.

The film is based on the beloved books by Beatrix Potter whose “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” begins with the now famous words: “Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter.”

The three sisters are as much part of the landscape of many childhoods as their brother is. As Peter Rabbit opens, their mother has passed away, and Peter is determined to be a responsible older sibling and caretaker to the trio. (At least, that’s his intention.)

Movies: Bruce Willis Takes Crime Fighting To The Extreme In “Death Wish”


Action icon Bruce Willis becomes mortal grim reaper in “Death Wish” as character’s his life is shattered when his wife was killed and left his daughter in a coma during a robbery attempt in their home.

In “Death Wish”, Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) has it all: A beautiful family, a lovely home and an exciting and meaningful career as a surgeon in the emergency room of a bustling hospital. But when Kersey’s wife Lucy (Elisabeth Shue) is killed during a robbery attempt at their home and his daughter Jordan (Camila Morrone) is left in a coma after fighting back against the three attackers, he enters a world he never planned for. Emotionally shut down, Kersey leans on his brother Frank (Vincent D’Onofrio) for help, and on Detectives Raines and Jackson (Dean Norris and Kimberly Elise) for any updates on the arrests of the men who did this to his family.

As the police show Kersey a wall of unsolved cases and become resigned to the fact that his case will also go unsolved, something clicks in Kersey, a man who, as his brother Frank reminds him, used to be known for fighting back in the tough neighborhood they grew up in. Walking into a local gun shop, Kersey decides to arm himself. But his role in the world is saving lives, not taking them. No matter who is wheeled into his emergency room, to Kersey, they’re all patients in need of attention. How could he seek justice on such harsh terms? Yet as Kersey ventures into the night, he finds innocent people being preyed upon. When he foils a violent carjacking and a bystander’s cellphone footage of it goes viral, the media gives this unknown guardian angel a dark nickname: “The Grim Reaper.” As Paul Kersey gets closer to Knox (Beau Knapp) – the criminal who killed his wife – the city, unaware of this mysterious justiceseeker’s motives, wonders how it will end.

Movies: “Teen Titatns Go! To The Movies” Spoofs “Justice League” In Teaser Poster


Warner Bros. Pictures has just released a “Justice League” parody movie poster for “Teen Titans GO! to the Movies.” Check it out below and watch Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” in Philippine cinemas July 26.

“Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.

It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

Will Arnett (“The LEGO® Batman Movie”) and Kristen Bell (“Frozen”) lend their voices to the first-ever big-screen version of DC Entertainment and Cartoon Network’s animated TV show, which also stars Greg Cipes (TV’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Beast Boy, Scott Menville (TV’s “Spider-Man”) as Robin, Khary Payton (“The Walking Dead”) as Cyborg, Tara Strong (the “My Little Pony” franchise) as Raven, and Hynden Walch (TV’s “Adventure Time with Finn & Jake”) as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series.

The film is being directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC. Michail, Will Arnett, Jed Weitzman, and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic, and Horvath serving as executive producers. Apart from Arnett and Weitzman, all are “Teen Titans GO!” series contributors.

“Teen Titans GO! to the Movies” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Movies: A Hero Prepares To Find Herself In “Tomb Raider”


From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures comes Tomb Raider starring Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander in the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero.

Lara Croft, its tomb-raiding archaeologist heroine, is known around the world and has been for the more than 20 years since her first video game became a global smash. The character is loved by gamers everywhere but is also recognizable to millions who have never even picked up a controller. In this new Tomb Raider big-screen adventure, Lara’s boldness remains from her previous videogame and film incarnations, but the filmmakers are working to bring us a side of Lara Croft that we have never experienced on the big screen – an icon who is just finding her feet.

That realistic vibe proved a draw for director Roar Uthaug, the Norwegian filmmaker who balanced intimate character work with enormous action set pieces in the Scandinavian films The Wave and Escape. “This is a more down-to-earth Lara Croft than we’ve seen before on film, which appealed to me,” he tells us.
