Welcome to a new week of YA Onscreen! I hope you guys appreciate the situation I am in this week, as a person who has not yet seen Avengers: Infinity War and is trying desperately to not spoil myself with a stray comment or headline. I’m basically walking around the internet peeking through my fingers, reading only the first word of each headline. It’s stressful, y’all. On to the links!
Blumhouse films is moving forward with a Happy Death Day 2 after the success of the first one, and will apparently feature the same main characters.
I’ll give you just a few non-spoiler-y tidbits: check out the Avengers stars reading Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel:
And marvel (heh) at the numbers: Avengers: Infinity War had one of the biggest box-office openings ever.
Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz released a statement about two new exciting updates: on May 4, Netflix will release a remixed version of season 4, showing the entire season in chronological order; and, the new season 5 is apparently much closer than we knew!
New trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp:
The fourth Star Trek movie will be helmed by a woman, S.J. Clarkson, the first in out of 14 in the movies' history! Chris Hemsworth will be coming back to play Kirk’s dad, reuniting him with his son in a time travel plot. Two sexy Chrises on my screen at once? Please and thank you.
I appreciate that the producers of The Crown are correcting their egregious mistake and paying Claire Foy $275,000 in back-pay for the ridiculous pay-gap between her and Smith, whether it was borne out of genuine regret or public shame.
New trailer for season two of 13 Reasons Why, premiering on May 18:
Alexis Bledel has spilled the beans that she and her IRL BFFs, the ladies of the Traveling Pants fame, are pitching a third movie. Let’s just hope they aren’t going to be using the last book as their source material…
That’s it for the week! Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
