With occasional exceptions for an Avatar or a Lord of the Rings, December has not traditionally been a boom time for blockbusters. More often, summer is when the big-budget spectacles come out in full force. But you may have noticed that the past two winters have been absolutely dominated by Star Wars — and we have every reason to believe Episode VIII will repeat the trick in 2017.
No surprise then, that a new rumor claims Disney is thinking of sticking with that Christmas corridor, instead of shifting to summer with 2018’s Han Solo spinoff as originally planned. More about the Han Solo release date rumor below. Read More »

Amityville: The Awakening will have to come out eventually, but Dimension Films seems determined to put off that date as long as possible. They’ve just delayed Franck Khalfoun‘s horror film yet again, moving it from January 2017 all the way to summer 2017. Keep in mind this movie was originally scheduled to arrive in early 2015.

Just before last weekend, we got word that the Justice League sequel that was long set for release on June 14, 2019 might be pushed back to make room for Ben Affleck‘s gestating Batman movie. However, just a couple days ago, Ben Affleck indicated that he wasn’t in a rush to start shooting because the screenplay needed to be just right.
But now we have word from Ben Affleck himself that the production is on track to start shooting in the spring. In addition, elsewhere, Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman (who was actually removed from this position late last night) confirmed a release for 2018. Though that does create a little bit of confusion with regards to the release calendar. Find out more about Ben Affleck’s Batman movie release date after the jump. Read More »

Avatar 2 has been delayed many times over already, but as of now it looks like James Cameron‘s long-awaited sequel is targeting a 2018 release date. Fox has been throwing out that ETA for a while already, and last month they took the step of officially claiming a year-end slot. As any Avatar fan knows, though, the one thing Cameron is better at than making movies is blowing deadlines — and star Sigourney Weaver doesn’t sound so sure he’s going to make this one, either.

The reception for the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (watch it here) appears to have been exactly what Sony Pictures was hoping for, because today they announced a release date for the sequel. That’s right, even though Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t arrive until July of next year, Sony Pictures is so confident in their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that they’ve staked out a date in the summer of 2019.
That’s not the only summer sequel release date news from Sony Pictures either, because the placement of the Spider-Man Homecoming sequel in the summer of 2019 has resulted in the studio shifting their release of Bad Boys 4, the sequel to a sequel that hasn’t even started shooting yet.
Find out both the Bad Boys 4 and Spider-Man Homecoming sequel release date after the jump. Read More »
For awhile now, Warner Bros. Pictures has had their release slate for the DC Extended Universe locked down for the next few years with some minor changes here and tehre. However, there has been another change made to the schedule in order to accommodate a movie that wasn’t part of the original ambitious schedule for DC Comics movies down the pipeline.
Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all the way back in August of 2013, but it wasn’t until the following summer that we got word of Warner Bros. developing a new solo Batman movie. Since then the movie has grown to be quite an anticipated project with Ben Affleck working on the script with DC’s Geoff Johns as well as getting behind the camera as director.
Now we have an idea of when to expect Ben Affleck’s movie, reportedly titled The Batman, in theaters, because one of DC’s scheduled superhero movies is being pushed back for it. Find out more about Ben Affleck’s Batman movie release date below. Read More »
Paramount Pictures has announced that CLOVERFIELD MOVIE (IMAX) will be hitting theaters on October 27th, 2017. At the same time, God Particle which was originally set to hit theaters on February 24th, 2017 has been removed from the schedule. God Particle was believed to be the next film in the Cloverfield anthology film franchise, following off of the success of this year’s 10 Cloverfield Lane. While we assume that the new IMAX Cloverfield Movie is God Particle and that the studio has finally renamed it publicly, there is no confirmation on this from Paramount.
