‘World War Z’ Sequel Sets 2017 Release

World War Z 2 Release Date

Paramount has set the debut date for the World War Z sequel, with a mid-summer 2017 release targeted, rather than a 2016 bow. Specifically, the film is set for the same date on which Fox has already planted a flag for Fantastic Four 2. So which one will move? We’ll talk about that below, and give you news of the counter-programming strategy Universal has devised to compete with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Read More »

Beverly Hills Cop 4 release date

Last summer, Paramount announced Beverly Hills Cop 4 alongside Transformers 5G.I. Joe 3, and Hansel and Gretel 2. Brett Ratner was to direct, with Eddie Murphy returning to star as Axel Foley in a story that takes him back to Detroit.

The film was even given a release date, March 25, 2016, but we’ve heard very little about the film since then. No story, no casting, no shoot date. Now Paramount has scrubbed the Beverly Hills Cop 4 release date from the calendar, leaving the film in a sort of limbo. Just try not to cry all over your screen, OK? Salty tears leave awful smudges.

X-Men Days of Future Past Rogue Cut Release Date

We’ve been hearing about an extended cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past since last fall. The longer edition of the film has been called the Rogue Cut, mostly because it gives the power-stealing mutant played by Anna Paquin some more screentime thanks to a subplot that originally ended up on the cutting room floor. We’ve heard details about this cut of the film being 17 minutes longer, and the home video release also having some new extras as well. Now Bryan Singer has made an official announcement with the X-Men: Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut release date and a tease of other changes in the film beyond the inclusion of more Rogue.
