Angelina Jolie returning as Malificent, FX acquire Jurassic World television rights and Gambit gets a director.

Just Television and Films today, since James is covering all things gaming with his E3 coverage which you can find on our main page.


Angelina Jolie has been confirmed for the return of Malificent in the sequel to the 2014 reimagining that reeled in over $750 million. No wonder Disney are looking to take advantage of a successful jumping off point, with Tomorrowland not doing to great.

We’ve got our first look at another returning character in the Star Wars franchise; Carrie Fisher can be seen in these image sporting a… space pant suit? 

Gambit may finally have a director! Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the reboot/prequel Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Though we don’t have any solid idea of a storyline the script is in the hands of Josh  Zetumer, who penned Robocop (2014), which wasn’t terrible.


For those worried that starring in a superhero TV show would be all peaches and gravy, the Supergirl cast have a few words on the pressure they feel to live up to everyone’s expectations, though they say it’s the good kind of pressure that makes you want to be better in every way.

In quiet news that might not come of anything, FX Networks have acquired the television rights to the incredibly successful Jurassic World, could we see a TV series? Probably not, you’d need a lot of resources to pull of those effects.


For James’ rundown of everything that happened at the EA and Ubisoft conferences head on over here. While everything Microsoft can be found right here. Remember to check back during the week for more E3 updates.
