One week before the animated film was slated to hit theaters in the United States, Paramount Pictures has pulled The Little Prince from its schedule release date of March 18th, 2016. The film has been waiting to hit theaters in the US since debuting at the Cannes Film Festival last year and hitting various international markets afterwards. It’s already grossed $80 million overseas, but now it will have to wait a bit longer for a debut in the United States. However, the good news is that it sounds like we’ll still see the movie this year. Find out more about The Little Prince release date after the jump. Read More »

Forget ghosts — the real threat to the latest residents of 112 Ocean Avenue is the whims of film distributors. The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films have pushed back Amityville: The Awakening yet again, this time all the way to 2017. Remember, this is a film that was originally slated to come out in early 2015. And as it turns out, Amityville: The Awakening might have an unlikely culprit for this latest setback: the Sundance crowdpleaser Sing Street. Read More »
Ever since streaming services like Netflix and Amazon started producing their own movies, they’ve had a bit of a tiff with theaters who don’t want to show their movies on the big screen if it’s just going to be available to stream online at the same time. In order for Netflix and Amazon to get their movies in theaters to qualify for awards, they’ve had to buy out theater space themselves. But Amazon is about to change that approach by playing nice with the movie theaters.
Amazon Studios will soon allow a 90-day theatrical window between when the movie plays on the big screen and when it’s available to stream. The hope is that it will bring more attention to the movie, and give theaters some time to make money off the release before people can watch it at home. Find out more about the Amazon release window after the jump. Read More »

Whiplash was 2014’s little film that could: the $3 million picture took Sundance by storm, won three Oscars and got nominated for two more, grossed $49 million in all, and put director Damien Chazelle on the map as an up-and-comer to watch. No surprise, then, that Lionsgate is hoping Chazelle will be able to work a similar magic with his next film, La La Land. The studio has pushed the musical romance, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, from July 15, 2016 to December, putting it right in the thick of awards season. Read More »

Sony Pictures has done some shuffling to their release calendar for 2017, but thankfully, it’s nothing too drastic for those who have been waiting years for the action sequel Bad Boys 3 and the long-gestating adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. They’ve both been pushed back, but will still arrive in 2017. And for those waiting to see Barbie come to the big screen in her own movie, you’ll see it arriving a bit earlier. Find out the new Bad Boys 3 release date and the rest of the calendar shifts after the jump. Read More »
20th Century Fox may be enjoying success thanks to Deadpool, but their development of the X-Men spin-off Gambit starring Channing Tatum hasn’t been so lucky. The film previously lost director Rupert Wyatt, reportedly due to creative differences, but the project ended up recruiting Doug Liman to take the gig instead. But now the film has a little setback again as Fox has pulled Gambit from its October 7, 2016.
However, Fox has also set release dates for two mystery Marvel titles in 2017 and 2018, and there’s a good chance one of those dates belongs to Gambit. In addition, the studio has also set dates for the Predator reboot from Shane Black, as well as adjusting the releases of Alien: Covenant and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Find out what might be the new Gambit release date and the rest of the calendar updates below. Read More »

Once a movie takes Sundance by storm, the wait begins for its theatrical release. Sometimes there’s hardly a wait at all; this year’s documentary Jim: The James Foley Story premiered on HBO a mere two weeks after its Sundance bow. And sometimes that wait is so long it actually laps the following Sundance: The Witch, in theaters now, debuted over a year ago at Sundance 2015.
Fortunately for fans of ’80s music, Irish accents, coming-of-age stories, and/or joy, The Weinstein Company isn’t dragging its feet on Sing Street. The upbeat musical from John Carney (of Once and Begin Again) emerged as one of the biggest crowdpleasers of this year’s festival, and now it’s going to sing and dance its way into the hearts of general audiences this spring.
