Briefly: The spy comedy Grimsby, co-written and starring Sacha Baron Cohen, has just been given a release date by Sony Pictures. Yes, you read that right. Though Paramount (who released his previous films) recently re-upped their first look deal with the comedic genius, his latest film has switched distributors.
Directed by Louis Leterrier, Sony will release Grimsby July 31, 2015. Filming starts this summer on the comedy which stars Cohen as an English soccer hooligan whose (yet to be cast) brother is a secret agent. [Deadline]
Brick Mansions, one of the final films to feature the late Paul Walker, was once tentatively scheduled to open this month. But Relativity Media has now pushed the movie to April 25. The movie is a remake of Banlieue 13, released in the US as District 13. This also sheds additional light on the recent move of Earth to Echo into July, as Brick Mansions now has the date originally occupied by Earth to Echo. Read More »
Briefly: Another found-footage genre picture has been delayed, and this time it seems to be for a pretty good reason. Relativity is pushing the Amblin-esque Earth to Echo from a spring release into July of this year. That indicates that Relativity has confidence in the film’s ability to draw an audience in competition with films that will likely have far more marketing muscle behind them. The film now lands a week after Transformers: Age of Extinction, and a week before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Read More »
The found-footage, time travel movie Welcome to Yesterday was set to be released on February 28. However, Paramount and Platinum Dunes have now decided to delay the film until Summer or Fall.
Formerly called Almanac, the film is directed by Dean Israelite and follows a group of kids who stumble on the ability to time travel. They use it to have a lot of fun. The official reason for the delay is producer Michael Bay, who is currently hard at work on Transformers: Age of Extinction. He wants to give the film personal attention. They’ll also use the time to “refine” the marketing, which has been all but non-existent. Read More »
One of my most anticipated films of the year is the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, about the effort by Alejandro Jodorowsky (The Holy Mountain, El Topo) to film Frank Herbert’s titanic novel. 2014 will turn out to be a great year for fans of Jodorowsky, as we get not only that doc, but a new film from the director. It’s Jodorowsky’s first film in 23 years, and so The Dance of Reality is kind of a big deal.
The film was shot in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where Jodorowsky was born in 1929. The film is an autobiographical vision of sorts, as it blends “his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, reflecting Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.”
The film premiered at Cannes last year, and will soon play at SXSW, where the Chilean director will also do a Q&A. Yesterday it was announced that ABKCO Films will release the new movie in theaters in New York and LA on May 23, and it will expand to more theaters afterward.
Below, you can see the exclusive debut of the theatrical poster, and check out the trailer. Read More »
