Mamma Mia has to be the most feel good film of the last ten years so thank GOODNESS that right when we need it the sequel is coming!
The second instalment of the ABBA jukebox musical has been in the works for a while and it’s been announced that filming has finally wrapped.
The title of the second film is Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and stars main cast members from the previous movie Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Julie Walters, Colin Firth, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård, Christine Baranski and Dominic Cooper.
Production has started on the second season of The Son, AMC’s western epic based on Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel and starring Pierce Brosnan.
With production underway in Austin, Texas, the broadcaster has confirmed that Brosnan and fellow series regulars Jacob Lofland (Young Eli), Henry Garrett (Pete McCullough), Paola Nunez (Maria Garcia), Zahn McClarnon (Toshaway), Jess Weixler (Sally McCullough), David Wilson Barnes (Phineas McCullough), Sydney Lucas (Jeannie McCullough), James Parks (Niles Gilbert) and Elizabeth Frances (Prairie Flower) will all return.
Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan is now in a different kind of action thriller, “The Foreigner,” starring Jackie Chan as a businessman seeking revenge for his daughter’s death. He also talks to Matt Lauer about the upcoming sequel to “Mamma Mia!”
Jackie Chan stars as a humble businessman whose teenage daughter is killed as a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. He is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers. Martin Campbell directs the STXfilms action-thriller, based on Stephen Leather’s 1992 novel.
“The Only Living Boy in New York” is the new movie from director Marc Webb, who made “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its sequel (as well as the cookie-cutter child-genius drama “Gifted”), and it’s the first film he’s directed since “(500) Days of Summer” — yes, eight years ago — in which you can really feel the prickly pulse of his sensibility. It’s like “The Graduate” recast as a glibly literate slacker comedy with an entangled kink or two.
The hero, Thomas Webb (Callum Turner), is a gently acerbic rebel preppie who is spending his life figuring out what he wants to do with his life. He’s a would-be fiction writer coping with a world in which highly personalized art is disappearing — at least, as a monetizable career. And it’s not like that’s the only thing on the wane. The general erosion of middle-class security actually influences the way you watch a movie like this one, since you can’t help but be aware of how much Thomas’s alienation is intertwined with privilege.
His father, Ethan (Pierce Brosnan), runs a publishing imprint he built from the ground up, and he keeps asking Thomas why he’s wasting his time living on the downscale Lower East Side. But the way it looks to us, Thomas gets to live on the Lower East Side (and, when he feels like it, to slum with his parents in their Upper West Side brownstone). He gets to attend tony literary parties and dither his way toward a profession. And when he’s out with Mimi (Kiersey Clemons), a tart-tongued beauty who’s already slipped into the let’s-just-be-friends zone, and he spies his father kissing a woman other than his wife, he gets to trail the mysterious mistress (Kate Beckinsale) like a stalker-detective, and then he gets to sleep with her. It all sounds a bit sordid (sharing a paramour with your dad!), but for Thomas it’s a way of acting out the resentment he feels toward the icy remote father who never respected his literary ambitions.
Just to get the first question out of the way, Pierce Brosnan, known in many circles as 007 James Bond, and martial arts legend Jackie Chan do not spar in their upcoming film, The Foreigner.
“That did not come into the equation,” Irishman Brosnan, 64, admits. “I might have thrown a few Irish roundhouse (kicks) and probably would have been dealt with quite quickly.”
Instead, the two stars face off in a cat-and-mouse conflict that drives the action thriller (in theaters Oct. 13), which unveils its first trailer exclusively at usatoday.com.
Put July 2018 in your diary now: the Mamma Mia crew are back on the silver screen.
Ten years on from the film’s debut, and subsequent £460m profits, the original cast – including Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth – have announced that they are reassembling to create a sequel to the smash musical hit, titled Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again.

It seems like it was just yesterday that Meryl Streep filmed her vacation to Greece, where she sang and danced though a wedding weekend with all of her closest friends. At least, that’s what watching 2008’s Mamma Mia! The Movie feels like. And now, 10 years after the musical hit cineplexes, Universal is bringing everyone back for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!, a new film sequel to the classic Broadway show and yet another opportunity for Meryl Streep to spend two hours frolicking on the beach in overalls.
We’re not talking GoldenEye replays when we say that there’s going to be more Pierce Brosnan on AMC as the home of The Walking Dead today gave a second season pick-up to The Son. Coming just over a month after the Western series based on Philipp Meyer’s 2013 Texas oil county novel of the same name debuted, Season 2 of The Son will consist of 10 episodes and is scheduled to premiere in mid-2018.
