the ring 3

2002’s The Ring was a genuinely unsettling experience, one that slowly dug itself under your skin and lingered there long after the credits had rolled. But its sequel, 2005’s The Ring Two, was nowhere near as effective. And now its threequel, Rings, seems to be struggling even to get to the theater. Originally slated for a 2015 opening, Rings has just been pushed back again, this time all the way to fall 2016.

Meanwhile, also shuffling up and down the release calendar are Richard Linklater‘s Everybody Wants Some, which will arrive a smidge earlier than anticipated, and an as-yet-untitled Universal Monsters movie, which will drop a tiny bit later.  Read More »

Just about any movie involving J.J. Abrams begins life in his famous “mystery box,” from intimate thrillers (10 Cloverfield Lane) to record-breaking blockbusters (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Some of them, however, stay there longer than others. Like the Julius Onah-directed God Particle. We first heard about the project all the way back in 2012, and while we’ve gotten periodic updates on it since then, most of the concrete details remain under lock and key.

As of today, however, we do finally know when all will be revealed. Paramount has set a 2017 release date for the Abrams-produced sci-fi thriller, which has a script by Oren Uziel. Get the God Particle release date and more after the jump.  Read More »

Transformers Age of Extinction - Bumblebee

Earlier today, we reported that Paramount Pictures had set dates for Transformers 5, 6, and 7 in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Well, it turns out that wasn’t exactly accurate. While it is true we’re getting three more Transformers movies over the next three years, they won’t all be direct sequels. One of them will be a spinoff featuring Bumblebee (that’s the yellow one, for those of you who suffer from a Transformers-specific form of face blindness).  Read More »

Transformers 5 plot

Ready Player One movie

A few weeks ago, Disney bumped Star Wars Episode VIII from May 2017 to December 15, 2017. The move made perfect sense from a business standpoint: Episode VII had a record-breaking run in December, and why fix what’s not broken? But the announcement put the rest of the 2017 release calendar into disarray. Pirates of the Caribbean moved from July to MaySpider-Man swung from late July to early JulyJumanji jumped up from December to July.

And the effects are still rippling outward. Now Steven Spielberg‘s Ready Player One has been pushed off the 2017 slate entirely, in an effort to get out of Episode VIII‘s way. Meanwhile, The Flash is, appropriately enough, getting here a bit faster than we expected — it’s been bumped up one week by Warner Bros.  Read More »

‘Fast and Furious’ 9 and 10 Get Release Dates

Furious 7

Cars may come and go, but family is forever. And we do mean forever. With Fast 8 already set for 2017, Universal Pictures has just confirmed dates for the next two installments of the Fast and Furious saga. The newly announced movies bring us up to 10 Fast and Furious movies across 20 years. Not bad for a franchise that started out as a less-starry Gone in 60 Seconds and/or a cheesier Point Break ripoff.  Read More »

Avatar 2 Delayed

For anyone who was excited to see James Cameron‘s long-gestating Avatar 2 take on Star Wars: Episode VIII for a Christmas box office battle royale, we have some bad news. Avatar 2 will not be ready to meet the Christmas 2017 release that was staked out for the sequel. Though the release date was never officially claimed by 20th Century Fox, Cameron himself said they were targeting the holiday release window just last month. But now we have no idea when the sequel might hit the big screen. Read More »

new spider-man release date

Today has been an absolutely fascinating reminder that the schedules movie studios block out years in advance are just blueprints – anything and everything can change at a moment’s notice.

Earlier today, Star Wars: Episode 8 evacuated its May 26, 2017 release date and set up camp on December 15, 2017. This shift (which is nutty for a number of reasons) allowed Disney to place Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in that vacant Memorial Day weekend. As for the July 7, 2017 release date previously held by Captain Jack Sparrow? Well, let’s just say that Sony took this opportunity to supply the next Spider-Man movie and their Jumanji remake with shiny new opening weekends.
