La La Land

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 »

Bad Boys 3 Release Date

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 »

Gambit release date

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 »

The Birth of a Nation

The $17.5 million that Fox Searchlight paid for The Birth of a Nation was the single biggest deal in Sundance history. So of course the distributor has huge plans for the movie — including, it appears, a bid for next year’s awards race. Fox Searchlight has just announced a fall 2016 release date for Nate Parker‘s slave drama, which lit up this year’s Sundance Film Festival.  Read More »

Sundance Smash ‘Sing Street’ Set for Spring 2016

Sing Street

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.  Read More »

SNOWDEN_1st_Look

For a spell, it looked like Oliver Stone‘s Snowden could be a contender in this year’s awards race. It had a timely hot-button topic and an all-star cast, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley. Maybe most telling of all, it also had a primo release date: December 25, 2015. But those hopes were dashed when Open Road yanked the film off its 2015 calendar into summer 2016.

Or maybe not. Open Road Films has just pushed back Snowden a few more months into fall 2016, right at the start of prestige pic season.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Woody Allen

For the past forty years, Woody Allen has reliably churned out one film per year. And for the past seven years, Sony Picture Classics has been faithfully by his side to put them out. But even Woody Allen needs a change of pace from time to time. So his next movie is going not to Sony, but to Amazon Studios, which also commissioned his first-ever TV series last year.

Come to think of it, Allen is basically living the plot of one of his own movies. Allen, of course, is the neurotic, intellectual older man who finds himself in a rut, and Amazon Studios is the lively, perky, much younger woman whom he doesn’t quite understand, but nevertheless proves to be just the person to help break him out of that funk.

John Wick 2 Shoot Date

If you enjoyed the first John Wick, as we did, you were very likely sold on John Wick 2 the moment it was announced. Keanu Reeves is set to return, as is co-director Chad Stahelski, and what else do you really need to know before sprinting down to your local box office (or to the online ticketing retailer of your choice) to grab some opening weekend tickets for you and your action-loving friends?
