‘The Meg’ and ‘Slender Man’ Premieres + 9 Other Movie Premieres, Rumors and Announcements of the Week


Nexter.org prepared for you a weekly dose of most interesting movies premieres and announcements you might have missed this week.

‘The Meg’ premiere

The Meg’s story involves a group of scientists uncovering a host of new species at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. This involves a giant shark dubbed a Megalodon, a creature long thought to be extinct. Statham’s navy captain Jonas Taylor is called into the research station to help, but soon the monster has escaped and starts eating everything – and everyone – in its path, leading to a race against time to stop it.


‘BlacKkKlansman’ premiere

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan.

The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.

‘Slender Man’ premiere

Slender Man is a supernatural character that is firstly mentioned as a creepypasta Internet meme created by Something Awfulforums user Eric Knudsen (also known as “Victor Surge”) in 2009.

In a small town in Massachusetts, a group of friends, fascinated by the internet lore of the Slender Man, attempt to prove that he doesn’t actually exist… until one of them mysteriously goes missing.

Sir Patrick Stewart will reprise the role of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in a brand new “Star Trek” series on CBS All Access, Variety has learned.

The exact plot details are being kept mostly under wraps, though the series is said to tell the story of the next chapter of Picard’s life. That indicates that it will take place after the events of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” rather than being a prequel or reboot.

A Supergirl film is in development

Warner Bros. and DC are reportedly working on a feature film based on the popular superhero with 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel.

Not a lot more is being divulged at this point, and it comes as a surprise considering most internet chatter has been based on what will next happen for Superman, who after the 2013 film Man of Steel, was conscripted to become key to the plots of Batman V Superman, and more recently Justice League.

‘Maniac’ trailer

Netflix has released a full trailer for the Cary Fukunaga limited series coming out on September 21.

10 years ago we first saw Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in Superbad when they were a little bit older than teenagers. This time both actors are the characters not of the teen comedy movie, but the dark mind-bending drama.

Maniac (2014) is Norwegian series about Espen, who “has escaped into his own head and where his life is a fantastic fantasy world. In real life he is a patient at the psychiatric ward.”

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ pictures

Margot Robbie is channeling the ’60s in the latest photo from Quentin Tarantino’s next movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

As previously announced, Robbie is playing Sharon Tate, the most famous victim of the Manson murders. The new picture shows Robbie recreating the late actress’ look.

Earlier, Leonardo DiCaprio shared a photo of himself and Brad Pitt on set in some very era-appropriate threads.

LeBron James will produce a Showtime mini-series

Showtime has announced a new documentary series about the changing role of professional athletes in today’s political environment, with NBA star LeBron James as executive producer.

The title of the three-part series, Shut Up and Dribble, is a not-so-subtle reference to the words used by Fox News host Laura Ingraham in February, when she went on air to denounce the basketball star’s criticism of President Donald Trump.

Ruby Rose will play Batwoman


As Nexter.org wrote before, the CW Network has cast Ruby Rose as Batwoman as it was a “priority to cast an openly gay actress to take on the role,” after the scandal with Scarlett Johanson that was supposed to play the transgender character.

‘House of Cards’ Season 6

For Robin Wright, longtime star of Netflix’s House of Cards remake, the show’s sixth and final season is #MyTurn.

A tweet announcing the Nov. 2 premiere date — timely, just a few short days before Election Day — also features a grim, new poster and a wholly appropriate hashtag: #MyTurn. In Season 6, Wright steps into the show’s lead role — and the Oval Office — after her disgraced former co-star Kevin Spacey was ousted from the series.

Aquaman will not contain any cameos from members of the Justice League

Director James Wan told Entertainment Weekly that, while he respects that Aquaman is “part of a bigger universe,” he wanted to keep the story “clean.”
