Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson has revealed that he was offered the chance to snap up directing duties on DC's Aquaman.
Johnny Depp allegedly asked several Hollywood studio bosses to blacklist his ex-wife Amber Heard and even tried to get her fired from Aquaman.
Aquaman makes a splash at Number 1 in its first week on the Official Film Chart, outselling the rest of the Top 5 combined. Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) discovers he’s the half-Atlantean heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, becoming Aquaman to prevent a war between the worlds of ocean and land, and prove his worth as the future king. Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe also star. It pushes last week’s chart-topper Ralph Breaks The Internet to Number 2; Bohemian Rhapsody also falls one place, landing at Number 3; Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald drops two to Number 5. Meanwhile, fellow superhero film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hangs on to Number 4 for a second week on digital downloads only. Could the hero swing to the Number 1 spot when it releases on disc on April 22. Another new entry, the Peter Jackson produced dystopian steampunk action film Mortal Engines, roles in at Number 6. Venom returns to the Top 10, climbing 6 places to Number 7; A Star Is Born lands at 8; Creed II drops four spots to Number 9, and Taron Egerton’s incarnation of Robin Hood rounds off the countdown at Number 10. This week’s Official Film Chart features an exclusive clip of Will Ferrell and John C Reilly discussing their reunion in Holmes & Watson. The adventure-comedy caper will be available to Download & Keep from April 20.

"Johnny and I refer to his other personality, the part of him that is present when he beats me up — we call that the monster," Heard said.
Sitcom's tie-in contest for tickets to the DC movie premiere potentially gives away a surprise plot development.
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
It’s little secret that the DC Extended Universe, the Warner Bros-owned comic company’s attempt at a rival to the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe, is struggling. Whilst its three existing movies – 2013’s ‘Man of Steel,’ and 2016’s ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ – all performed well at the box office, none of them have won over audiences or critics the way Marvel have. This means that, at present, the only DC movie lined up for release in 2018 is ‘Aquaman.’ However, it has emerged that the studio are contemplating filling the gap left by ‘The Batman’ by accelerating the development process on one of their planned films.
