Today’s Movie Morsels is chock-full of firsts. Want your first look at Colin Firth’s return from the grave for Kingsman: The Golden Circle? We’ve got that. How about your first look at The Rock in Fast 8? We’ve also got that. Maybe you’d like a first look at Sofia Boutella as the title monster in Universal’s reboot of The Mummy? Yup, we’ve got that too. Or perhaps you’d appreciate a first look at gunslinger Idris Elba slinging guns on the set of The Dark Tower? Oh yes, we’ve most definitely got that! So let’s get morselin’!
Kingsman: The Golden Circle
As Colin Firth himself recently stated, the reports of his—or rather his character Harry Hart’s—death in Kingsman: The Secret Service were greatly exaggerated. For proof, look no further than a new Instagram photo from Firth’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle costar Pedro Pascal (best known as Game of Thrones beloved Oberyn Martell). It’s our first look at Firth in director Matthew Vaughn’s sequel, due out June 16, 2017…

Well, this is a twist. We’ve grown used to seeing Dwayne Johnson as the perennial lawman in the Fast and Furious films. But with Vin Diesel’s character and his friends currently free of long-held charges, it appears that Samoan Thor is going behind bars himself! Here’s our first look at Johnson in Fast 8, hitting theaters on April 14, 2017…

The Dark Tower
Though director Ron Howard recently tweeted our first look at Idris Elba as Roland the Gunslinger in the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, today we have the first pic of Elba actually brandishing his signature weapon. And he’s brandishing it against none other than co-star Jackie Earle Haley’s villainous Sayre! Haley’s sporting dots on his face, presumably so that CGI can later be added. Such befits a character whose defining physical characteristic is a constant pool of blood on his kisser…

Finally today… With solid buzz surrounding her performance in Star Trek Beyond, Kingsman: The Secret Service star Sofia Boutella is donning stark white makeup again for a very different kind of role: as the titular creature in Universal’s Tom Cruise-starring reboot of its Mummy franchise. Check out these first images of Boutella on the film’s set. And yes, I fully expect that some CG trickery will be added to make her look even more fearsome when The Mummy is released on June 8, 2017…
