Thanks to “Annabelle: Creation,” the Conjuring franchise has passed $1 billion.

James Wan directed “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2,” which starred Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.

Wan also directed the first “Saw” film. That series will see a new installment, “Jigsaw” later this year.

Craig not coming back for Bond?

The latest we had heard was that Daniel Craig would return to the James Bond franchise for two more films.

That may have been premature. Craig, while doing press for “Logan Lucky” had this to say:

No decision has been made at the moment, there’s a lot of noise out there and nothing official has been confirmed. And I’m not, like, holding out for more money or doing anything like that. It’s just all very personal decisions to be made at the moment. I know they’re desperate to get going and I would in theory love to do it, but it’s just there is no decision just yet.

Do you want Craig to come back?

Joss Whedon has stepped in for Zack Snyder as the director of “Justice League.” Not only is he reportedly making the movie lighter in tone, but he may be changing the ending.

Potential spoilers are ahead.

According to /Film, the movie has been altered to focus on Steppenwolf as the main threat. Reportedly, before Steppenwolf was more like the Silver Surfer, heralding the coming of Darkseid.

Justice League stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (the Flash), Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and a host of others.

Captain Phasma was one of the characters people were looking forward to most in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” only to be disappointed by the amount of screen time she had on screen.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will rectify that. Director Rian Johnson said in an interview:

“Gwendoline Christie is one of my favorite people, and you get to see her in action which I think is going to be really fun. That character is just so damn cool looking. Like, okay, let’s see what we can do with her. Let’s put her in action and see what happens.”

The anticipated sequel starring Daisey Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Mark Hamill and Carrie Fischer hits theaters Dec. 15.

“The Conjuring” universe continues to flex its muscle at the box office. “Annabelle: Creation” earned $4 million from its Thursday previews.

That’s almost double the $2.1 million “Annabelle” earned and is also higher than “The Conjuring” (James Wan, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) and “The Conjuring 2”.

Horror movies can be very front loaded, so it still may not reach the level of those first three films, but at this point, an opening above $30 million seems likely.

Riz Ahmed “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has joined the “Venom” film in an undisclosed role.

The film will take place in the same world as Tom Holland’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” but will not be connected to the MCU.

Tom Hardy (“Dunkirk”) has already signed on to the film. Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) will direct.

The Terminator franchise has struggled as of late. From “Terminator Salvation” with Christian Bale and Sam Worthington to “Terminator Genisys” with Arnold and Jai Courtney, the film series has seemed to hit a rough patch as of late.

That won’t stop another film from being filmed.

Arnold Schwarzenegger said in an interview with The Playlist that the movie will begin filming next March with a “Conan” film to follow.

James Cameron is back on board the series, so hopefully this one will turn out better!

“Ready Player One” trailer

Here is the Comic-Con trailer for “Ready Player One.”

Directed by Steven Spielberg, the film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Simon Pegg and more.

Here’s the latest trailer for “Justice League” from Comic-Con.

The film stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ezra Miller (the Flash), and Ray Fisher (Cyborg).

The San Diego Comic-Con has become a destination for comic and film lovers.

Huge films from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” to “Justice League” will be showing off footage, costumes and more.

But the most interesting conflict has little to do with those films.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the San Diego Comic-Con could be headed to trial against the organizers of the Salt Lake Comic-Con over whether Comic-Con should be trademark protected.

This could have huge ramifications as major cities from New York to Las Vegas to Portland have started hosting these conventions.
