In addition to a certain behemoth sci-fi property, Disney also had news on writer/director David O. Russell's new film, his first since 2015's Joy. The big news was the title of the movie, which we learned is called Amsterdam.

A sizzle reel for what is described as "a romantic crime epic" was shown, revealing some of the basic plot. Amsterdam follows three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history.

Russell has rounded up quite the cast for this one, including returning collaborator Christian Bale and Robert De Niro, plus Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Alessandro Nivola, Andrea Riseborough, Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Rock, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Shannon, Mike Myers, Taylor Swift, Timothy Olyphant, Zoe Saldaña and with Oscar-winner Rami Malek.

Writing and directing this one, Russell looks to be keeping to some of his obsessions – crime among them. Amsterdam will land in UK cinemas on 4 November.
