Jason Momoa Says He Can’t Shoot ‘Aquaman 2’ Because He ‘Got Run Over by a Bulldozer’
Jason Momoa says he can’t start shooting “Aquaman 2”… because he “got run over by a bulldozer” while protesting construction of a giant telescope on land considered sacred to native Hawaiians.

“Sorry Warner Bros we can’t shoot ‘Aquaman 2,'” he wrote in an Instagram post. “Because Jason got run over by a bulldozer trying to stop the desecration of his native land This iS Not Happening. We Are Not Letting You Do This Anymore. Enough is enough. Go somewhere else.”

In a followup post, Momoa asked fans to support the protest movement, writing, “During this time, we are trying to unite both kānaka and Hawai’i born peoples alike to protect not only the mauna, but also our way of life and greatest natural resources in Hawaii as a whole.”

Aquaman Star Jason Momoa Fires Back At Body-Shamers Again

Last month, photos of Jason Momoa relaxing on the beach with his family revealed that the Aquaman star hadn’t maintained the muscular physique displayed in the recent DC blockbuster. And while you wouldn’t think that would be anyone’s business but his own, the actor has subsequently found himself to be the unlikely target of a wave of online body-shaming.

Naturally, the fans have since come to Momoa’s defense, and in a new video shared from Hawaii, the star offers his own response to the controversy while spreading a message of greater importance than the appearance of his so-called “dad bod.” In the short clip below, Momoa stands shirtless with the slogan, “Tmt + Canary Islands = Discovery,” written across his chest. Speaking to the camera, he offers the following message:

“How’s that for a dad body? Tmt, the Canary Islands want you. We don’t want you.

Warner Bros. has released the news that they have pushed back the release date for the upcoming Denis Villeneuve-directed film Dune from November 20th, 2020 to December 18th, 2020.

Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Gets Delayed A Month As Ben Affleck’s ‘The Way Back’ Retreats From Fall To Spring 2020

Other than affecting when you get to see a film, the way a studio shifts its release date for a film tends to say a lot about how the company views its upcoming product. And in the case of Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” adaptation and the Ben Affleck film “The Way Back,” it would appear that the studio involved is pretty confident it has some crowd-pleasers, as both films find new release dates.

Warner Bros. Dates Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Biopic, Pushes Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

Warner Bros. has unveiled a slew of new dates for its upcoming projects, according to Deadline. Director Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune,” starring Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet, has been shifted from November 20, 2020, to December 18, 2020, to make room for another yet-to-be-announced release. Warners has also given Baz Luhrmann’s buzzy Elvis Presley biopic a release date of October 21, 2021.

The untitled Elvis film stars Austin Butler as the King of Rock and Roll. Butler most recently appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” as a bloodthirsty member of the Charles Mason tribe. The film will allegedly cover two decades of Elvis’ life, with Tom Hanks co-starring as his manager Colonel Tom Parker. It’s set to begin production early next year in Queensland, Australia.

Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” is the third attempt by an ambitious auteur to mount an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s landmark 1965 science-fiction novel.

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune pushed back a month to December 2020

It seems we’re going to have to wait a little longer for Denis Villeneuve’s Frank Herbert adaptation Dune, with Warner Bros. announced that it has pushed back the release of the sci-fi epic a month from November 20th 2020 to December 18th 2020.

The film will now open alongside Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, Paramount’s comedy sequel Coming 2 America, and Sony’s Uncharted movie (assuming of course it isn’t still in development hell by that point).

Villeneuve wrapped filming on Dune last week, and is now entering post-production on the first of what is planned as a two-part adaptation of the seminal sci-fi novel. The filmmaker is also developing the live-action TV series Dune: The Sisterhood for WarnerMedia’s HBO Max streaming service.

Dune Remake Gets New Holiday 2020 Release Date

  • MovieWeb
Dune Remake Gets New Holiday 2020 Release Date
Denis Villeneuve's Dune remake is now hitting theaters one month later than initially planned. Villeneuve just wrapped production on the highly anticipated remake at the end of July. Dune author Frank Herbert's son, Brian Herbert, was the one to deliver the good news and notes that the cast has already been talking about how amazing it was to work with Villeneuve, who apparently knows how to run a set with expediency. With that being said, we're going to have to wait a little longer to see the results than originally thought.

Warner Bros. has announced they are shifting the Dune remake release date from November 20th, 2020 to December 18th, 2020. It's unclear why the studio decided to move the project, but it must have some pretty strong confidence in it since the new release date puts it in direct competition with Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake, Tom Holland's Uncharted,

Austin Butler’s Elvis Presley Biopic Gets Fall 2021 Release Date

  • Variety
Elvis is in the building on Oct. 1, 2021, the date set by Warner Bros. for Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley biopic.

The studio announced the date on Friday, three weeks after setting Austin Butler as the star. The studio tested with a handful of actors in full hair and make-up at the end of June to see who would join Tom Hanks, who is playing Presley’s manager, Col. Tom Parker.

Luhrmann co-wrote the script with Craig Pearce. The movie covers on the relationship between the veteran manager and the young singer, who was born in 1935 to a poor family in the small town of Tupelo, Miss. Presley broke out in 1956 with “Heartbreak Hotel.”

The project marks Luhrmann’s first film since his adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. He most recently worked on the Netflix series “The Get Down.” The plan is to shoot at the top of 2020 to accommodate Hanks’ schedule.

Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Delayed as WB Sets Elvis Presley Movie for 2021

Warner Bros. has delayed Dune by one month, moving Denis Villeneuve's starry epic from Nov. 20, 2020 to Dec. 18, 2020. The studio has also confirmed an IMAX release for the film. As of now, that puts Dune on a collision course with Sony's Uncharted movie starring Tom Holland, Steven Spielberg's musical West Side Story, and Paramount's Eddie Murphy comedy Coming 2 America, which will almost certainly move now. In fact, if I was Paramount, I'd move Coming 2 America to the Mlk holiday weekend the following month. Elsewhere, WB has announced it will release …

‘1917’ First Trailer: Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins Go Full ‘Dunkirk’ in WWI Thriller

‘1917’ First Trailer: Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins Go Full ‘Dunkirk’ in WWI Thriller
Sam Mendes is returning to the war genre for the first time since 2005’s “Jarhead” with the upcoming Universal Pictures drama “1917.” The World War I drama marks the filmmaker’s first directorial effort since leaving the James Bond franchise behind. Mendes directed Daniel Craig in the Oscar-winning “Skyfall” and its less well-received sequel “Spectre,” and the first “1917” trailer suggests he’s operating in a similarly epic scope while taking on WWI.

“1917” stars George MacKay and “Game of Thrones” breakout Dean-Charles Chapman as two young British soldiers who are given a mission to cross into enemy territory in order to deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers, including the brother of Chapman’s character. The supporting cast includes U.K. acting heavyweights Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Madden, and Andrew Scott.

“1917” is shot by the legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins. The WWI drama will

Ben Affleck’s Scrapped Batman Movie Explored Arkham Asylum, Bruce Wayne’s Insanity
Batman is returning to the big screen in 2021 with director Matt Reeves and actor Robert Pattinson taking on the iconic superhero role, but that wasn’t always Warner Bros.’ plan for the film franchise. Following the release of Zack Snyder’s “Justice League,” Ben Affleck was set to reprise the Bruce Wayne/Batman role in a standalone film he was tapped to write and direct. Affleck officially parted ways with the project and the character in January, which was followed by confirmation that Reeves was coming on board to retool the next Batman film.

In a new interview on MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast, cinematographer Robert Richardson reconfirmed Affleck’s Batman script was finished and not exactly beloved by everyone involved in the film’s development. Richardson was hired by Affleck to film his Batman standalone film after the two worked together on the actor-director’s gangster drama “Live by Night.
