The Lego Movie 2’s Justice League & more cameos, explained by director – Polygon

The Lego Movie 2’s Justice League & more cameos, explained by director – Polygon

Entertainment
. Though The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part shares the characters, cast, and universe of the 2014 original, two things that didn’t hold over were directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (who jumped over to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse). Though Lord and Miller stayed on as writers and producers, Mike Mitchell (Trolls, Sky High) inherited the Lego-verse with an eye towards keeping it as vast, frantic, and beloved as in the first movie. Mitchell also inherited the limitless character possibilities that could make brief appearances in Lego form. Limited only by their imaginations (and whatever Warner Bros. legal thought was kosher), The Lego Movie 2 once again packs the story with cameos, obvious and out-there. We talked to Mitchell about carrying on the Lego legacy, getting to play ...

‘Aquaman’ spin-off ‘The Trench’ in development at Warner Bros. – Digital Trends

Entertainment
. The DC Extended Universe just lost its Batman, but it gained a new star in December. Aquaman, which starred Jason Momoa in the title role, rode the waves of hype to a $1 billion take at the global box office, making it the highest-grossing film based on a DC Comics property in movie history. While director James Wan decides whether or not he’ll return to guide Aquaman‘s inevitable sequel, Warner Bros. and DC decided to keep the momentum flowing with a spin-off. The upcoming feature film is called The Trench, and will be a “horror-tinged” take on Aquaman’s bright and colorful submarine world, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Newcomers Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald will write The Trench‘s script. Wan and Peter Safran will serve as producers. T...

Ariana Grande Beat the Boys at Their Own Game With ‘Thank U, Next’ – The Ringer

Entertainment
. Ariana Grande has an iconic high ponytail, a startling four-octave range, two no. 1 singles in the past three months, a genuinely distressing amount of public trauma and grief to process (publicly) for someone who is only 25, a convincing claim to being the biggest pop star in the world at exactly this moment, an active feud with the Grammys that only underscores her popularity, a raging cultural-appropriation controversy, a six-month-old and tremendously well-received album with a song called “Pete Davidson,” a brand-new album that is arguably better than that other album and is in part about getting over Pete Davidson, and a Japanese-language wrist tattoo that at press time still mistakenly reads “small charcoal grill, finger ♡.” This is, very much by de...
