Sing 2: Release Date, Cast And Other Quick Things We Know About The Musical Sequel

In December 2016, Illumination Entertainment continued its momentous run at the box office with the arrival of the animated jukebox musical comedy Sing. With a star-studded cast that included the likes of Matthew McConaughy, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Taron Egerton, and dozens of other famous actors and singers, a great story, and excellent execution, the movie became a quick hit with fans of all shapes, sizes, and species. And, just like other Illumination projects, like the Despicable Me franchise for example, Sing will soon have a sequel of its own.

As it stands there’s a lot we know about the upcoming animated sequel from the Sing 2 release date, its expansive cast including new additions Bono, Bobby Cannavale, Pharrell Williams, and Latitia Wright, and much, much more. So, while we look toward the arrival of the anticipated musical comedy, let’s break down everything we know about Sing 2 before it’s released in theaters…

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Just Got Real About Where They Stand

There may be more to reports that Scott Disick is “struggling” with Kourtney Kardashian’s current relationship with Travis Barker than just sources and rumors.

In a sneak preview of part two of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion, the exes opened up to Andy Cohen about their past relationship and where they stand today—including how Disick feels when Kardashian is “linked to other guys.”

At the top of the clip, both reality stars—who were together for nine years and share three children—admitted they might still be together if not for Disick’s past substance abuse issues. After their split in 2015, Disick checked himself into rehab. “I don’t want to make any excuses for my behavior,” he says of his infidelity during their relationship. “I definitely wouldn’t have done these things sober. But it was all wrong, and I just thought it was normal, to be honest.”

After shutting down any rumors that the pair have hooked up since their breakup, Kourtney Kardashian described their bond as one of “great friends and co-parents,” while Disick added that “we’re family. I think we always will be.”

That’s when Cohen seemingly addressed recent reports that Scott Disick “has been jealous” of Kardashian’s PDA-heavy relationship with the Blink-182 drummer, despite his own relationship with 20-year-old model Amelia Gray Hamlin.

“It seems like you get really upset when Kourtney is linked to other guys,” Cohen told Disick in the clip.

“Me? No,” Disick replied, which received a small laugh from his ex. “No, I just wanna kill them.” While he was clearly joking, the reality star went on to emphasize that he was not a fan of Kardashian’s “last guy,” presumably meaning her ex, Younes Bendjima.

“The last guy…let’s all be honest here,” he started, before Khloe Kardashian jumped in, saying, “Nobody was happy with the last one.” Disick added, “But I did try to support—I was still there to try to help her through it.” You can watch the full clip, below.


John Cena Shares Thoughts On Whether DC’s The Suicide Squad Is A Sequel Or A Reboot

John Cena definitely has a unique perspective on the nature of The Suicide Squad, as he says it’s neither a reboot nor a sequel. Instead, he simply believes it to be a movie from the brain of one James Gunn, making it a unique and creative entry that falls outside of the aforementioned categories. So The Suicide Squad is something else entirely, it seems, and Cena seems excited for people to check it out.

A Quiet Place Part II’s John Krasinski On Handing Off The Franchise’s Third Movie To A New Director

A Quiet Place Part II has been a major hit for director John Krasinski, who has, whether he expected to or not, spawned one of the biggest franchises in movies right now. Funny enough, Krasinski initially didn’t want to make a sequel to A Quiet Place but, now, the franchise is has proven to be so successful that a third film has been given a release date by Paramount Pictures. Emily Blunt, Krasinski’s wife and the star of the films, has implied that there are many ideas where the franchise could go, so there are a number of possibilities for the film. But Krasinski won’t be directing this particular project, and he’s now commented on handing off the movie to a new director.

James Gunn Reveals How Avatar Affected The Guardians Of The Galaxy

But for Avatar, the character is achieved through motion capture performance, making the time in the makeup chair significantly less – aside from a bunch of dots being placed on her face. It’s pretty ironic that Zoe Saldana’s biggest roles have her completely transforming her look, but their different looks definitely allows for the actress to disappear into these alien characters.

Adrian Grenier Admits Nate Was the True Villain of The Devil Wears Prada

We all know the true villain of The Devil Wears Prada is Andy’s unsupportive boyfriend Nate, but does actor Adrian Grenier see things the same way? 

The 2008 film centered on Andy Sachs’s (Anne Hathaway) descent into the big bad fashion world after taking an assistant job with powerful magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep). But if you ask anyone on Twitter, they’d say the real antagonist was not the one wearing Prada, but the guy who shames his girlfriend every step of the way. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, The Devil Wears Prada star opened up about the discourse inspired by the film—and how he came to change his mind about his character. 

“I didn’t see some of the subtleties and the nuance of this character and what it represented in the film until the wisdom of the masses came online and started to push against the character and throw him under the bus, and I got flak,” he told EW. “All those memes that came out were shocking to me. It hadn’t occurred to me until I started to really think about it, and perhaps it was because I was as immature as Nate was at the time, and in many ways he’s very selfish and self-involved, it was all about him, he wasn’t extending himself to support Andy in her career.”

While Hathaway came to Nate’s defense over the whole birthday fiasco during the reunion interview, Grenier is officially Team Andy. “At the end of the day, it’s just a birthday, right? It’s not the end of the world. I might’ve been as immature as him at the time, so I personally couldn’t see his shortcomings,” he continued. “But after time to reflect and much deliberation, I’ve come to realize the truth in that perspective.”

Hathaway pointed out that Nate wasn’t completely in the wrong. “Nate was pouty on his birthday because his girlfriend wasn’t there,” she said. “In hindsight, I’m sure he wishes he made a different choice, but who doesn’t? We’ve all been brats at different points. We all just need to live, let live, do better!”

Still, Grenier has a message for all the would-be Nates still holding their girlfriends’ back. “[Andy] needed more out of the world than Nate, and she was achieving it,” Grenier added. “He couldn’t support her like she needed to because he was a fragile, wounded boy. There’s a selfishness and self-centeredness in that, and I think Andy needed to be held by a man who was an adult. On behalf of all the Nates out there: Come on! Step it up!”

In The Heights Fans Can’t Get Enough Of That Hamilton Reference

Of course, the point of Easter Eggs is that they’re usually subtle. They offer the chance for filmmakers to get a bit tongue-in-cheek, and see how much audiences are paying attention. In the Heights‘ reference to Hamilton definitely falls under that category, as looking down at your phone or focusing on Jimmy Smits’ performance could result in missing it altogether. Another fan expressed this, revealing they had to rewind to make sure they didn’t miss the quick nod to “You’ll Be Back.” As they put it,

Scarlett Johansson Reveals How Long Ago It Really Was When She And Kevin Feige Concocted Idea For Black Widow Film

It’s easy enough to imagine a reality where Marvel Studios greenlit Black Widow in the early 2010s, resulting in it being part of the Phase Two slate. And yes, this would have been quite a different story from what we’re getting with the actual Black Widow movie, as it either would have been set post-Avengers or perhaps explored Natasha Romanoff’s pre-Iron Man 2 life more in-depth. I’ll leave it up to your imagination on how that would have changed the flow of the MCU as a whole, but evidently Scarlett Johansson and Kevin Feige’s conversation during the press tour for The Avengers wasn’t enough to properly move that creative ball forward right away.
