The Disappointments Room was one of the movies impacted by Relativity’s bankruptcy. D.J. Caruso‘s horror film hasn’t been delayed as long as Before I Wake (watch that trailer here), but it started shooting back in 2014, and it was originally scheduled to come out earlier this year. Relativity will release the movie, which stars Kate Beckinsale, in limited release next month, on the same date they had last scheduled Before I Wake.
Below, watch The Disappointments Room trailer.

I don’t know about you people, but I’m ready for the Halle Berry career renaissance. I think that we, as a symbolic nation of movie fans, are ready to completely forget about the likes of Catwoman and Die Another Day and Gothika and Things We Lost in the Fire and embrace a second wind. She’s a fine actress, a more-than-capable screen presence, and when it comes to more recent Berry performances, more people should talk about her brave and bonkers work in the brave and bonkers Cloud Atlas.
In any case, she appears to be carving out a new niche as the star of lower-budgeted thrillers. 2013’s The Call was a modest hit and Kidnap looks to be cut out of similar cloth.

The story behind Relativity’s The Crow remake is practically as full of struggle and hardship as the plot itself. For a while it was a revolving door of talent, unable to hold on to a director or star long enough to actually start shooting. Then, just when it looked ready to take flight with director Corin Hardy, it was crippled by Relativity’s financial woes.
But now the film could finally get off the ground, with still on board and a new leading man at the forefront. Jason Momoa, the former Khal Drogo and the current Aquaman, is reportedly closing in on a deal to play the undead vigilante at the center of the Crow remake. Previous actors considered for the role include Jack Huston and Luke Evans. Read More »
There are a few instances where it’s okay to tell your kids to give up on their dreams. For example, if a child dreams of being a dinosaur, you should probably have a gentle conversation about realistic expectations. Before I Wake proposes another more literal take on this parental dilemma: what if your kid’s nightmares began manifesting in reality and started trying to jump scare you to death?
The Before I Wake trailer gets right down to business. There’s a creepy kid (played by Room‘s Jacob Tremblay), an even creepier dead kid, Thomas Jane and Kate Bosworth looking increasingly concerned about their predicament, and a whole bunch of gross things suddenly popping up on screen.

The past week must’ve been rough for director Alex Proyas. His career has had its ups and downs, including his scrapped adaptation of Paradise Lost, but these last few days, in particular, haven’t been great. Critics ripped Gods of Egypt apart and audiences didn’t show up for the pricey adventure movie.
Following the disastrous opening, Proyas then wrote a Facebook post criticizing reviewers of his latest, making both fair and unfair points. As the director mentioned, even two of his most beloved movies, Dark City and The Crow, weren’t huge hits with critics during their theatrical releases. The latter even became a big enough hit that it has been gearing up for a remake for years — which Proyas would rather not see happen.
Check out the Gods of Egypt director’s thoughts on the remake below.

Jane Got a Gun, which recently revealed a new trailer, was perhaps the most promising Relativity Media project to be affected by the studio’s bankruptcy. Another project of Relativity’s that took a hit? Masterminds, a crime comedy directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) and executive produced by Jody Hill and Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down). It was originally scheduled for August of this year, but we won’t see Hess’ film until next fall.
Get the new release dates for Masterminds and other Relativity films after the jump.

Another Stephen Soderbergh film may make its way to the small-screen. The 2011 action movie Haywire was a very modest box-office hit, and proved that MMA fighter Gina Carano has real screen presence, given the right circumstances, of course. Will she return to play Mallory Kane in the television series? Little is known about the project at this point, but it’s an exciting prospect, to say the least. Read more about the potential Haywire show after the jump.

Just last month we learned that the reboot of The Crow had hit a huge speed bump as Relativity Media had declared bankruptcy. While someone at Relativity was hoping to still push forward and move into production, an entire production team and several heads of department left the project, stalling pre-production.
Now the project is facing another problem as director Corin Hardy is on the verge of leaving the project thanks to the bankruptcy filing putting a halt on the project and creating some legal problems for the company. Find out more about Corin Hardy leaving The Crow below. Read More »
The big screen reboot of The Crow just can’t catch a break. Shortly after losing lead actor Jack Huston, pre-production on the film has now stalled, presumably due to the recent filing of bankruptcy by Relativity, the company behind the project.
At the time Huston left The Crow, it wasn’t clear if scheduling difficulties or creative differences caused him to leave, but maybe he just saw the writing on the wall and knew this project was going to have some trouble moving forward.
