  • “Silence,” Martin Scorsese’s passion project about Jesuit priests in feudal Japan, has snagged an awards-season release date.

  • Viola Davis will star in Steve McQueen’s upcoming heist thriller “Widows” for New Regency.

With Jon Favreau’s hit “The Jungle Book” recently arriving on BluRay and iTunes, his cameo in the upcoming “Spiderman: Homecoming” movie, and now the announcement of him helming “The Lion King” adaptation, I thought it would be appropriate to have some Jon Favreau Cinema Squad Trivia!


  • Mindy Kaling & Emma Thompson to star in an untitled movie revolving around a veteran late-night talk show host.
  • Angelina Jolie to star in the Afghanistan war drama “Shoot Like a Girl.”
  • Brad Anderson to direct “FATE,” an original script by Gary Whitta.
  • Mel Gibson to star in “Every Other Weekend,” an action adventure project that will be directed by French filmmaker Benjamin Rocher.
Closing Segment:  Favorite Halloween Movies
October is officially here!  So it’s time to dust off those horror classics and scare yourself into the Halloween mood.  My question for the panel: What scary horror movies (or just Halloween movies) do you watch every year to get into the mood for Halloween?
