A Batman solo movie was never formally announced. We first heard rumblings that Ben Affleck was co-writing and might direct a solo adventure featuring his Justice League character. Then Warner Bros executives casually mentioned the project was happening at CinemaCon. But even when I was on the set of Justice League this past June, Affleck was non-committal about the project, telling us that he isn’t ready to make a movie “until there’s a script that I think is good.”
But earlier this month the actor/director felt confident enough to tweet out a screen test with Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, so it sounds like the script has hit the “good enough” tier. And while Affleck mentioned that Warner Bros has a tentative date for the movie, we have never heard when we might expect to see Batman’s solo detective story hit the big screen. Now Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes gives us some idea of when we can expect to see Ben Affleck’s Batman movie.

Toho Company Ltd. has already brought back Godzilla in a big way over in Japan. Shin Godzilla (or Godzilla: Resurgence as it’s known in the United States) marked the 31st film the long-running monster movie franchise (the 29th produced by Toho), and the film has been quite the hit overseas. In its opening weekend, the film pulled in $6.1 million, which was triple the previous Godzilla film from Toho, and since then it has grossed a total of nearly $51 million, making it the highest grossing live-action film of 2016 in Japan to date.
Now Godzilla fans will get a chance to see the return of the classic movie monster in the United States as Funimation Films, who acquired the rights to the film during San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, have just set a release for this fall.

In terms of new releases, it’s slim pickings out there this weekend. Oh sure, there are a couple of bigger films (Light Between Oceans and Morgan) and a handful of indies, plus some high-profile holdovers from earlier in the summer. But if none of those quite suit your fancy, how about revisiting a film you may have missed the first time around?
Lionsgate is putting its young adult thriller Nerve back into theaters across the country this weekend.

Right now we’re in a bit of a dead zone between the blockbuster summer season and awards season, but that’s going to change once Snowden arrives in the middle of September as we start to move into October. However, one of the movies that I was looking forward to quite a bit has just been bumped back from its original October release date into December.

A third Bad Boys film has been in development since at least 2009 and every year or so has brought a fresh news item about behind-the-scenes conversations and negotiations and ever-shifting release dates. The project took on new life last June when director Joe Carnahan was hired to replace Michael Bay, which was quickly followed by news of Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4 arriving in 2017 and 2019. While Carnahan has continued to tease the film on social media, updates have been scarce since then.
That brings us to right now: it seems that Bad Boys 3 has a title that isn’t Bad Boys 3 and a release date that isn’t the previously announced release date. It’s not much, but hey, momentum.
