There are few young stars we love more than Yara Shahidi. This amazing young lady is not only an actress, she is also highly intelligent and an activist. Thus, it was only a matter of time before we found her headlining in movie titles. That day is here and Yara is set to star in a new film, The Sun Is Also A Star. Starring opposite of her, and playing her love is interest, is none other than Riverdale star, Charles Melton!

As you may already know, Charles Melton plays the role of “Reggie Mantle” in Riverdale, and is the second actor to do so. The first being Ross Butler who left the role after the first season due to scheduling conflicts with Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

Riverdale breakout Charles Melton has been tapped to star opposite Yara Shahidi in the YA adaptation The Sun Is Also a Star.

Based on the New York Times best-seller from Nicola Yoon, the film centers on Natasha (Shahidi), a girl in New York City whose pragmatism is challenged when she falls in love right before her family is set to be deported back to Jamaica.

Melton will play Daniel Bae, the teenage son of Korean immigrants who meets Natasha by fate.

MGM and Warner Bros. are behind the feature, having picked up the rights to Yoon’s book after partnering for an adaptation of the author’s debut, Everything, Everything. Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip) adapted the book for the screen, with Ry Russo-Young set to direct.

Alloy Entertainment’s Les Morgenstein and Elysa Koplovitz Dutton will produce. Tracy Oliver will executive produce. Cassidy Lange is overseeing the project for MGM, and Niija Kuykendall is overseeing for Warner Bros.

The Sun Is Also a Star is the highest-profile project to date for Melton, who is best known for playing fan favorite Reggie Mantle on the popular CW series Riverdale. His other credits include Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. Melton is repped by Untitled and Gang Tyre.

The Sun Is Also a Star is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019.

“The message is loud and clear,” Jeff Fowler tweeted Thursday. “You aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.”

Fowler, a visual effects artist who’s making his directorial debut with the “Sonic” film, included the hashtag #gottafixfast.

Social media users complained about the CGI look of the titular hero, with the character’s human-style teeth drawing the most flak. Video game blog Kotaku compiled some of the most entertaining reactions.

Fowler did not specify what changes are in store for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8.

We have to say Sonic’s appearance in the film is lackluster to say the least, we are looking forward to seeing what changes–and we hope they are sweeping–are made! What do you guys think about Sonic and his first movie trailer? Leave your thoughts in the comments’ section below!

Jordan Peele is winning yet again! His newest horror film, Us, had debuted with higher than expected seventy million dollar opening weekend!

us movie opening weekend

Let’s lay out some pretty amazing facts about Us’ $70 million weekend. That is the highest opening ever for an original “R”-rated film. The 11 “R” films to open higher were either sequels or adapted from popular books. Us is also the biggest opening ever for an original live-action film in March and an original horror film in any month. Only It and last year’s Halloween opener higher. But…can it outgross Get Out‘s $176 million?

Us has already doubled Get Out’s $33.4 million opening. A good start indeed. It is the 142nd film to open with $65 million or more. Of those previous 141 films, do you know how many failed to reach the $176 million earned by Get Out? Six. (Fifty Shades of Grey, Halloween 2018, Fast and FuriousQuantum of Solace,X-Men: Apocalypse2012). That is already 95.7% in favor of Us besting Get Out’s total. The number to watch next week when Dumbo knocks Us back to second is whether its second weekend is over or under $28 million.

We are clapping all the way to the bank for Jordan Peele! Yet again, movie trackers are bad at predicting what will be a hit or not. Social media indicated just what a buzz this film had around it, thus we are not surprised! What do you guys think of Us? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
