Nobody liked Fantastic Four. Not critics, based on the reviews, and not audiences either, based on the box office. Not even its own director, who jumped on Twitter to distance himself just as the movie was opening in theaters. Nevertheless, 20th Century Fox continued to insist that it was “committed” to the franchise, with a sequel already dated for 2017.
But now Fox has taken a step back, too. In perhaps the least surprising superhero movie news of the year, the studio has quietly pulled Fantastic Four 2 off its upcoming calendar. Plus, Murder on the Orient Express, The Other Side of the Door, and Eddie the Eagle all get new release date. Read More »

While most movies have scrambled to get the hell away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Tina Fey‘s new comedy Sisters planted a flag on December 18, 2015 last year and hasn’t budged. “We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars,” joked Fey’s co-star Amy Poehler. “We are going to fucking crush Star Wars.”
And while that prediction seems, uh, pretty far-fetched, Fey apparently isn’t intimidated by Disney’s other upcoming offerings, either. She’ll face off against the studio again in March, as her upcoming Afghanistan War comedy (formerly titled Taliban Shuffle) has just staked out a release against Disney’s Zootopia. Read More »

While the rest of the world gets transported to a galaxy far, far away next month, China will still be sitting there wondering what the hell Luke’s been up to for the past 30 years, as Star Wars: The Force Awakens won’t open there until January or later.

The Point Break remake is set to open in China December 3, three weeks before it hits the U.S. on December 25. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it speaks to China’s continuing influence on Hollywood studios. More about the complicated forces behind the early Point Break China release after the jump.

Spike Lee‘s Kickstarter film, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, came out earlier this year. The director behind Do the Right Thing and The 25th Hour caused some controversy — not the first time in his career — when he started the campaign for his “vampire” movie, and the actual film itself was just as divisive. But it’s not the only movie we’ll see from Lee in 2015. There are three Spike Lee movies this year: Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, plus Livin’ Da Dream and Chi-raq.
