Pride and Prejudice and Zombies release date

Briefly: After so, so many years of development, with just about every director-star combo imaginable, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies finally has a set release date. Screen Gems will put the comedy horror mashup in theaters February 19, 2016, putting it up against the Naomi Watts thriller Shut In.

Based on the hit novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies moves the plot of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice to an idyllic English countryside littered with the undead. Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, and Suki Waterhouse play the five Bennet sisters. Sam Riley, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, and Matt Smith are their would-be suitors. Burr Steers directs. [Coming Soon]

Mark your calendars, because Sony Pictures Animation has set a 2017 date for its next trip to Smurf Village.

That might not sound like something to look forward to after the grating awfulness of the last couple of Smurfs movies, but this one’s different. Instead of a CG / live-action hybrid, it’s an entirely animated reboot that sticks more closely to the source material. More on the Smurfs release date after the jump.  Read More »

Dwayne Johnson San Andreas

Briefly: Warner Bros. just dated/shuffled two big action comedies they have set for the Summer of 2016. First up, Central Intelligence, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber and starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, will open June 17,2016. That date was previously occupied by The Nice Guys, directed by Shane Black and starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. They’ve bumped that up to May 20, 2016, which is a huge vote of confidence. The Nice Guys will open against Angry Birds and Central Intelligence tangles with Finding Dory. [Box Office Mojo]

In addition, a couple new cast members have been revealed — specifically Emma Thompson and Kevin Kline. Find out whom they’ll be playing, and get Beauty and the Beast release date details, after the jump.  Read More »

infinitely polar bear trailer

There’s a Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana Bad Robot movie that you haven’t seen yet. That’s pretty cool, right? Plus, the movie is great to boot. I’m talking of a film called Infinitely Polar Bear, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the film soon after its Sundance debut (which is now over a year ago) but we haven’t heard anything about it since.

Now, finally, a trailer is out for the film. It’s getting released internationally in March and the US will get it on June 19. Check out the first Infinitely Polar Bear trailer below.

UPDATE – A different US trailer, including a quote from yours truly, is now online. Read More »
