Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to play the iconic Laurie Strode in the “Halloween” franchise. Universal Pictures is planning to release what they are calling the final film in the "Halloween" franchise. The new movie is set for an Oct. 19, 2018 release date.
In the new movie, Curtis’ character will have a final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
The new film will have quite a crew behind it. John Carpenter, who directed the original film, will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining leading horror producer Jason Blum, who’s behind “Get Out,” “Split,” and “The Purge” and “Paranormal Activity” franchises. David Gordon Green is directing from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Green’s directing credits include “Pineapple Express” and “Our Brand Is Crisis."
Curtis also played Laurie Strode in “Halloween II” (1981), “Halloween H20: 20 Years Later” (1998) and “Halloween: Resurrection” (2002). She tweeted about her return on Friday.
Sunday night (September 10) the place to be was definitely Beverly Hills as the Beverly Hilton played host to an event 25 years in the making, the 25th Anniversary Show for Def Comedy Jam.
Def Comedy Jam 25 brought together many of the big stars that made the late night comedy show great. The guest list included Bill Bellamy, Dave Chappelle, D. L. Hughley, Cedric The Entertainer, Steve Harvey, Tiffany Haddish, Tracy Morgan, Martin Lawerence and more. Also a part of the show was the long running DJ for the series, Kid Capri. Executive producers Stan Lathan, Russell Simmons, Jesse Collins and Sandy Wernick were also present.

Alert the presses! The beautiful Sanaa Lathan has chopped it all off, her hair that is! Before you start freaking out let me tell you she looks just as beautiful! She took to Instagram today to do the, in her words, “reveal”, mentioning how light she feels and captioned it with #nappilyeverafter.
Sanaa is best known for her roles in Brown sugar and Love & Basketball but a quick search of her IMDB page revealed that she is currently filming a movie titled the same as the # she used for captioning the photo. The shocking reveal is likely to drum up some, ahem, "buzz" about the movie. The movie will be a film adaptation of the book Nappily Ever After, written by Trisha Thomas where Sana is set to play the title character, Violet. According to Variety Magazine, the film will be featured on Netflix.
Well Miss Sanaa Lathan, hair or no hair, you are looking just as beautiful as ever.

“We pitched it around so we’re trying to have someone make a deal for it. It’s still in the air, but it looks like it’s going to land pretty strong so we’ll find out what’s going on with that in the next couple weeks,” Kenan told CBS. “It’s going to be similar to ‘All That’: a bunch of sketches and musical guests."

If you are a fan of the Marvel TV series on Netflix, I am sure you are caught up on all of the shows, including the recently released The Defenders series. If you haven't finished yet then maybe you should stop reading cause SPOILERS ARE COMING. If you are fine with spoilers are have seen the entire season, then we have some great news for you.
The last time we saw Misty Knight (Simone Missick), the savvy and beautiful NYPD detective lost her arm in her attempt to save Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) from Bakuto (Ramón Rodríguez). As the first season of The Defenders concluded, we see Misty recovering in a hospital room paid for by Danny Rand, well thanks the photo above from Luke Cage season 2, we know exactly what they did to her while she was there.
As with her comic book counter part, Misty Knight will now be sporting a bionic arm. What we have yet to find out is how she gets this new powerful limb and what exactly she can do with it. In the comics, the arm is given to her by none other than Tony Stark himself, however, in the Netflix series it is doubtful that they will stick to that origin story. Instead, is seems as though Danny Rand (Finn Jones) a.k.a. Iron Fist will use his money and influence to heal up our favorite NYC detective.
The other unknown is the enhancements the arm will feature. In comics, the arm gives Misty super strength and has a wide selection of weaponry to chose from. This will most likely not be the case for the MCU version. At most, the arm should give her enhanced strength which still makes her hard to defeat given her natural skills and her partnerships with the likes of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist.
As filming for Luke Cage season 2 continues, we should learn more about Misty's new arm and more. Meanwhile, The Defenders is now streaming on Netflix and The Punisher season 1 arrives later this fall. Premiere dates for the new seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist have yet to be announced.

According to the folks over at IGN and Deadline, DC is developing a Joker stand alone movie that will act as an origin story.
According to reports, a Joker origin film is in early development stages by Warner Bros. and DC, with Todd Phillips, who directed The Hangover, on board to direct and co-write the script with Scott Silver, who wrote Eminem's 8 Mile.
IGN is also reporting that the movie will not involve Jared Leto as the character. Instead, it will be part of an unannounced imprint of DC films that will look to tell one-off stories about beloved characters in the DC canon. (So, for example, even if this film is released, Jared Leto's Joker would still appear in any DCEU-related films, such as Suicide Squad 2).
