DreamWorks Animation had it’s own Ghostbusters-style movie, B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations, set for summer 2015 release. But now the company is rethinking the release date. ”We regularly evaluate how to maximize [our films'] value, including determining the most opportune time to release a film,” said a DWA spokesperson, and it turns out that summer 2015 is not the opportune time for B.O.O. The film is now floating in the aether without a release date, like one of its own ghosts. Read More »

Disney Animation is riding high with their latest film, Big Hero 6, currently number one at the box office. However, after several hits in a row, including the giant Frozen, the studio has a bit of a break coming up. That’s because Pixar had a break in 2014 and is releasing two films, Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur, in 2015. So Disney Animation doesn’t have a film in 2015.
Disney Animation does have two films in 2016, and the company just officially announced the release dates for both Zootopia and Moana. Read more about the Disney Animation release dates below. Read More »

Way back around 2008 or so, David O. Russell shot most of a political satire called Nailed. The reason we’ve never seen it is that he eventually abandoned it in 2010, after many stops and starts and financial struggles.

Living in the United States, it’s easy to look at our release calendar and see it as the be-all, end-all. But these days, international audiences make up far more of the audience for a film than the US release does. International box office dollars are increasingly important to studios, including Marvel Studios. For example, Guardians of the Galaxy was a big hit in the United States, but it grossed more overseas. Same for The Avengers and Iron Man 3.
So, while last week U.S. audiences got release dates for all of Marvel’s Phase Three, those essential international audiences were left in the dark. Now, the Marvel Phase 3 International release dates have been revealed. As usual of late, most of them take place before we get the films in the US. Read More »

The good news is, there’s a new Coen Brothers movie coming. The bad news is, you’ll have to wait over a year to see it. Hail, Caesar! is from writing/directing/producing siblings Joel and Ethan Coen, which automatically puts it atop whatever must-watch list you have going. The film is a comedy, and the third entry in the directors’ loose George Clooney-starring “idiot trilogy” which began with O, Brother Where Art Thou? and continued with Intolerable Cruelty.
The cast of Hail, Caesar! includes Clooney, and Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill. We’ve got more info, including the first official synopsis, below. Read More »
