Chaos Walking came and went without much pomp and circumstance earlier this year, mostly because theaters weren’t fully open for a proper theatrical release. But the movie is available on digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD starting today, and we’ve got an exclusive look behind the scenes with Daisy Ridley talking about the challenge director Doug Liman faced in bringing Patrick Ness‘ book to life on the big screen Read More »
Godzilla vs. Kong doesn’t hit theaters (and HBO Max) until tomorrow, but the massive monster mash-up has already taken the international box office by storm. Overseas, the blockbuster battle opened up in 38 markets, raking in over $121.8 million, which is enough to set the record for biggest global box office debut during the coronavirus pandemic. However, that doesn’t mean the film’s debut in the United States will have nearly as big of a reception. Read More »
Maybe there’s a reason that the YA dystopian genre had been long left behind by Hollywood. Films like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Maze Runner had their heyday in the early 2010s, but the premise of beautiful teens and twenty-somethings having to reckon with their share of authoritarian governments/world-ending threats/love triangles had run its course. But there will always be a few stragglers to a Hollywood trend, and the long-delayed Chaos Walking is one of them.

Chaos Walking, a movie that wrapped four years ago, is finally heading to theaters. Maybe. Look, we’ve been here before – the sci-fi adventure film was once supposed to arrive in 2019, so there’s always a chance it could get delayed yet again. But today, Lionsgate announced that tickets for Chaos Walking were on sale. And with that ticket announcement came a new clip from the film, which shows stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in the midst of a high-speed chase, with Holland riding a horse and Ridley on a dirt bike.

Back in the spring of 2019, it was said that Doug Liman‘s new sci-fi film Chaos Walking was “unreleasable,” and Lionsgate was going to spend millions of dollars on reshoots in an attempt to fix it. Well, we can finally get a taste of those results as the first Chaos Walking trailer has arrived, revealing that Tom Holland lives on a planet where all women have disappeared and the inner-monologues of men are unwillingly audible for anyone to hear. That’s made all the more complicated when Daisy Ridley shows up. Read More »
The last time we heard about Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley was last April. The adaptation of Patrick Ness’ novel The Knife of Never Letting Go was “deemed unreleasable,” and millions were going to be spent on reshoots for the film from Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. The movie was expected to arrive sometime this year since only three weeks of reshoots were needed to fix the movie, but Lionsgate has now set a release date for January 2021, nearly an entire year away.

Chaos Walking, the film adaptation of Patrick Ness’s young adult book trilogy, has been in development since 2011. Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) and actors Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland came on board in 2016 and it started filming the next year, with an intended release date of March 1, 2019. As you may have noticed, that date has come and gone and the film still hasn’t hit theaters.
Now we know why. According to a new report, the film was “deemed unreleasable” in its initial form, and after spending $100 million already, Lionsgate is now spending millions more on three weeks of reshoots. Yikes. Read More »
