Hollywood Heavy Hitters Join "John Wick 3 " Cast
Filming is already underway for the third instalment of John Wick, but director Chad Stahelski is still adding to the cast. 
Halle Berry is to star alongside Keanu Reeves, along with Angelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Jason Mantzoukas and Mark Dacascos.

"John Wick 3: Parabellum" picks up immediately after the second movie.  Wick has a $14 million bounty on his head and a whole host of nasty characters in pursuit to get that money.  By the way, 'parabellum' is latin for 'prepare for war', which should give you a hint of what to expect... 

This is likely to be the last of the John Wick series, so we're excited to see how this action-packed story wraps up, but will miss Wick's dark, brooding character on the big screen!  "John Wick 3: Parabellum" is set to be released next year, on May 17.

"Mowgli" Trailer Released
We're all familiar with that classic story, "The Jungle Book".  Originally written by Rudyard Kipling, then animated by Disney back in 1967 and most recently, in 2016, adapted into a fantastic re-imagining of the first movie, this story is truly timeless.

Now, Andy Serkis has created "Mowgli", the tale of the young boy raised by wolves who is at home among the animals in the jungle.  We follow Mowgli as he must come face-to-face with his own kind, as well as having to stand up to Shere Khan the tiger.  We will see our favourite characters - Baloo the Bear, Bagheera the panther and Kaa the snake - voiced by Andy Serkis himself, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett, respectively.

"Mowgli" will be in cinemas from October 19.  Take a look at the first trailer and let us know what you think in the comments!
