Fans who were looking forward to Dwayne Johnson playing a comic book character were probably a little disappointed when Warner Bros. released their big, upcoming, DC schedule last year. Among all the huge movies and announcements was the fact Johnson’s Black Adam wouldn’t appear until 2019 when Shazam hit theaters.
A few months back though, Johnson suggested that release date might be moved forward and now he’s at it again. The actor believes Shazam will be released earlier than 2019. Read about the potential Shazam release date change below. Read More »

Lionsgate’s recent decision to move Power Rangers to January 2017 wasn’t what you’d call encouraging. The month is known as a dumping ground, with good reason. However, Lionsgate insists the new release date doesn’t signal a lack of confidence, but an opportunity. “Great movies deliver whatever date they’re on,” said co-chairman Rob Friedman.

Last summer, Paramount announced Beverly Hills Cop 4 alongside Transformers 5, G.I. Joe 3, and Hansel and Gretel 2. Brett Ratner was to direct, with Eddie Murphy returning to star as Axel Foley in a story that takes him back to Detroit.
The film was even given a release date, March 25, 2016, but we’ve heard very little about the film since then. No story, no casting, no shoot date. Now Paramount has scrubbed the Beverly Hills Cop 4 release date from the calendar, leaving the film in a sort of limbo. Just try not to cry all over your screen, OK? Salty tears leave awful smudges.

We’ve heard details about this cut of the film being 17 minutes longer, and the home video release also having some new extras as well. Now Bryan Singer has made an official announcement with the X-Men: Days of Future Past: Rogue Cut release date and a tease of other changes in the film beyond the inclusion of more Rogue. Read More »
