Asher Angel is about to make his big screen debut in Shazam!, and opening up about playing the young Billy Batson on screen.

Asher added, “He’s been his own guardian, he’s had no one, which has kind of been his choice because he just wants to find his mom. So, he’s had to do everything for himself in order to stay alive and look for her.”

A handful of new stills from the movie were just released and JJJ has them all in our gallery!

Shazam! centers on Billy Batson’s (Angel), who can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard.

Elle Fanning Opens Up About Aurora Being A Positive Role Model

Elle Fanning Opens Up About Aurora Being A Positive Role Model

Elle Fanning is opening up about how she views Aurora as a powerful princess in the Maleficent film series.

The 20-year-old actress, who plays the young royal opposite Angelina Jolie in the film and its’ upcoming sequel, spoke to Porter Magazine as part of her cover story about Aurora being a positive role model, rather than just a sleeping beauty.

“I want Aurora to be a character that [girls] can look up to, who’s strong and all that,” she says.

Elle adds, “But Angelina [Jolie] and I were talking about this: Maleficent, of course, has the dark side, and Aurora is the one who loves pink and is the light and she’s not afraid to be feminine. I think it’s beautiful that I get to represent [someone] who is strong in her beliefs, but is also unwavering in staying true to herself.”

“I wear dresses the whole time throughout the film… I don’t have a moment where I burst into armor, you know what I mean? There’s nothing wrong with loving your feminine side. I think as women we should really love that part of us.”

Maleficent 2 is out in theaters on October 18th.
