Either way, CGI is going to be a major factor in all of them.
Haim added, “Today’s young audience is much more sophisticated. Think about movies like Jungle Book and Arrival. The effects are mind-boggling. So does the young audience expect more? You bet they do – and they will have it.”

Joey King is reminding us to be careful what we wish for thanks to the trailer for her new movie Wish Upon!
The upcoming horror film also stars Sydney Park and Shannon Purser, among others, and things turn deadly when Joey‘s character starts making some wishes that really come true.
The film is about a 17-year-old girl named Clare (King) who is bullied in high school, embarrassed by her manic, hoarder father Jonathan (Ryan Phillippe) and ignored by her longtime crush. All that changes when her father comes home with an old music box whose inscription promises to grant its owner seven wishes.
While Clare is initially skeptical of this magic box, she can’t help but be seduced by its dark powers, and is thrilled as her life radically improves with each wish. Clare finally has the life she’s always wanted and everything seems perfect – until the people closest to her begin dying in violent and elaborate ways after each wish. Clare realizes that she must get rid of the box, but finds herself unable and unwilling to part with her new-and-improved life – leading her down a dark and dangerous path.
Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, the film tells the unlikely love story of Maddy, a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won’t let that stop them.
Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything.
Everything, Everything, co-produced by MGM and Warner Brothers, will hit theaters on May 19.
The 20-year-old star plays the Yellow Power Ranger in the film – and the director, Dean Israelite, revealed that the scene where the news is revealed is small but “pivotal.”
The scene happens where Trini is going through relationship problems, which one of the heroes assumes is “boyfriend problems,” but then discovers it’s “girlfriend problems.”
“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Dean told THR. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
There are superheros who have represented the LGBTQ community, but it’s never been translated to the big screen.
