New ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY Clip Gives K-2SO the Spotlight

Can you believe we’re less than two weeks away from the release of a brand-new Star Wars movie?! Well, just in case you aren’t stoked out of your mind yet, today’s Movie Morsels has a brand spanking new clip from Rogue One. Plus, the latest photos and video of Dwayne Johnson in action on the set of Jumanji, an update on Aquaman, and much more to make your Monday merrier!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

In the many positive reactions to the 28 minutes of Rogue One footage shown at Saturday’s international press event at Lucasfilm HQ in San Francisco, one note is struck again and again: K-2SO is awesome. Voiced by Alan Tudyk, the security droid-turned-Rebel commando should be the film’s big breakout character, the same way that BB-8 stole most of his scenes in last year’s The Force Awakens. Whereas BB-8 is a 21st century reimagining of R2-D2, K-2SO looks like a big, bad-ass version of everyone’s favorite protocol droid, C-3PO. At least that’s how things appear in a clip unveiled at the event. Check it out below…

We’ll all know if Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has got the goods when it hits theaters on December 16th.

Jumanji

The Rock looks like he’s continuing to have the time of his life on the set of Jumanji. Workin’ and playin’ hard while throwing his “stunt man brothers” around like six-foot-five rag dolls… Dwayne Johnson has shared a handful of new pics of himself, along with a video snippet of him and Kevin Hart. Hey, is it just me or would anyone else love to see Johnson and Hart dress up as K-2SO and BB-8?

Been shooting #Jumanji for months now and I’ve been waiting patiently for this night to come… In the original movie, the world of #Jumanji came to us. Now 20yrs later in our continuation of the story, we go to the amazing and deadly world of #Jumanji. For months we’ve shot everything.. all the comedy, all the jungle action and all the heart. Finally, tonight – Saturday night – all night – I get to knuckle up with my stunt brothers and I get to beat some ass like a drum. My stunt brother here @taitfletcher is going night night. And when he wakes up, I’ll be good as gone cause he can rearrange my face with one punch. Let’s get it on boys and have some fun. #OnSet #KnuckleUp #BeatingAssesLikeDrums #BeenWaitingForMonths #StuntBrotherLuv #Jumanji #Tonights4YouAlanParrish

Aquaman

Aquaman

Aquaman, Aquaman, does whatever a merman can… Guess we’re gonna have to wait a little bit longer than we thought we would before we can watch the King of the Seven Seas in his big screen solo-film debut. Because Warner Bros has announced that the release date for director James Wan’s Aquaman has moved from July 27, 2018 to October 5, 2018. As far as I’m concerned, so long as this movie has at least one shot of Aquaman riding proudly and unashamedly atop the back a dolphin, Wan and co. can take all the time they want.

A Monster Calls

The children’s fantasy film A Monster Calls has been winning rave reviews since it debuted at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and it’s December 23rd release date (a limited one, with a wide release following in January) should make it the perfect holiday present for kids of all ages. But in case you’re unfamiliar with the award-winning novel on which it’s based, Focus has just unveiled a new behind-the-scenes featurette with author and screenwriter Patrick Ness, director J.A. Bayona, and star Liam Neeson…

Trainwreck Set Visit - Amy Schumer - Featured

Finally today… In case you missed it last week, funny lady Amy Schumer (pictured above in Train Wreck) is in talks to star in Sony’s live-action Barbie movie, confirming that the film is definitely taking an irreverent approach to its subject. Though a script has been written by Hilary Winston, Schumer is expected to pen another draft with her sister and writing partner Kim Caramele. The family comedy is said to take place “in a perfect land of Barbies, where one woman slowly awakens to the fact that she doesn’t fit in. She is expelled from the idealistic land and journeys to the real world, where she discovers that being unique is an asset.”
