Watch: Animated Sequences Cut From 'Tomorrowland' Introduce the Movie's World

9 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Brad Bird got his start in animation, so it would be totally appropriate for him to include animation in his live-action work. Unfortunately, we never got to see a cartoon Tom Cruise running around in a special sequence of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. And also unfortunately, we won't get to see animated sequences produced for his latest, Tomorrowland, as part of the movie. But we do at least get to see those sequences by themselves, online. These little animated shorts now function as a two-part backstory prequel laying out some alternate history informing the plot of the upcoming feature, which is inspired by the same-named section of Disney's theme parks. Here we learn that Jules Verne, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla and Gustave Eiffel came together as a kind of...

Richard Corliss, Venerable Time Film Critic, Dies at 71

19 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Corliss, for 35 years the witty, incisive and compassionate voice on film and culture at Time magazine, died Thursday after a stroke, the magazine announced Friday.

Time editor Nancy Gibbs messaged her staff with the news, expressing her “great sorrow” at the death of a man who she said “had to write, like the rest of us breathe and eat and sleep.”

“It’s not clear that Richard ever slept, for the sheer expanse of his knowledge and writing defies the normal contours of professional life,” Gibbs added.

Corliss, 71, suffered the stroke a week earlier, according to an obituary on Time’s website. He died in New York City and his magazine declared that it, “along with all lovers of film and great critical writing, will have a hard time recovering.”

The critic reviewed films tirelessly—more than 1,000 of them, while also authoring four books and writing sweeping narratives on »

Universal Monsters Delayed Along With Pacific Rim 2 And Warcraft

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Universal spent its time at CinemaCon revealing dates for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequels and announcing a new release date for Furious 8, there are more properties getting shuffled than just those two. In particular, today brings some bad news for monster fans and sci-fi action aficionados.

Universal’s planned ‘Universal Monsters’ franchise has been considerably delayed, with Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy shifting nine months from June 24, 2016, to March 24, 2017. That move also impacts the next, untitled monster movie, which was set to open April 21, 2017, but has been re-slotted for March 30, 2018.

Many are anticipating that The Wolf Man, which Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski is scripting, will take that second date, but Scarlett Johansson is currently being courted for The Creature From The Black Lagoon, so it’s unclear whether that title will get priority should she sign up.

Universal also announced that the Guillermo del Toro-directed Pacific Rim 2 »

Tom Cruise May Sing Again in Disney's 'Bob the Musical' Comedy

21 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In a surprising turn back in 2012, superstar Tom Cruise ventured into musical territory for the 80s rock infused Broadway adaptation Rock of Ages. The actor wasn't actually all that bad, and was easily the best part of a fun but somewhat messy musical. Now it looks like he might head back to the genre as The Wrap reports Cruise is circling the title role in the gestating Bob the Musical. He's not officially attached yet, but Disney has been circling Cruise for the role since January, and it sounds like he's still interested. Of course, there's plenty of movies Cruise is linked to, but they don't all come to fruition with him involved. It certainly sounds like it would be an interesting project to see Cruise tackle as it follows a regular guy who, after a blow to the head, suddenly can hear the inner songs of everyone’s hearts. »

23 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from release date announcements for the "Fifty Shades" sequels and "Fast and Furious 8" earlier, Universal Pictures has also announced a shifting around of several of its other major movies in the works - some by half a year or more.

"Warcraft," Duncan Jones' 3D film adaptation of the popular "World of Warcraft" video game franchise, has been pushed back by three months and will now open in the height of next Summer - June 10th 2016.

Universal's "The Mummy," the remake of the classic Universal Monsters film, was slated to open in the same month but has now been pushed back by a whopping nine months and will open March 24th 2017.

As a result of that delay, the second and yet unannounced film in their proposed Universal Monster Cinematic Universe has been moved back a fully year and will now open March 30th 2018.

23 April 2015 11:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Universal Pictures has made some changes to its movie schedule for the next few years, pushing most back a bit.

First up, the adaptation of video game Warcraft has been delayed until June 10, 2016 from its original March 11 slot. The new date will put it up against some strong rivals, including Warner Bros' Conjuring 2, Lionsgate's Now You See Me 2 and Sony's Uncharted.

The Mummy reboot has also been shifted, moving from June 24, 2016 to March 24, 2017. Meanwhile, Pacific Rim 2 is going from April 7, 2017 to August 4, 2017.

Elsewhere, Universal gave its first release date for Tom Cruise's new movie Mena, based on the life of former Twa pilot-turned-drug smuggler Barry Seal. It will hit cinemas on January 6, 2017.

The studio has also set its sights on an April 14, 2017 date for Furious 8, as well as February 10, 2017 for 50 Shades Darker and February 9, 2018 for 50 Shades Freed.

The Mummy, Warcraft, Pacific Rim 2, Fifty Shades release dates

23 April 2015 10:55 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Fifty Shades sequels, Duncan Jones' Warcraft and Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sequel all have new release dates...

Universal Pictures has changed around release dates for a bunch of its big upcoming movies. So without further ado, let's start with Duncan Jones' upcoming Warcraft movie.

The film, which is widely hoped to break the videogame movie curse, had already been put back from December 2015 to get it out of the way of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now though, it's being moved into a high summer slot, as the film will arrive on June 10th 2016.

Then, a blockbuster that had been planned for 2016 is moving back to 2017. That'd be The Mummy reboot, that Alex Kurtzman is set to produce and direct. Its release moves from June 2016 to March 24th 2017 (where it'll arrive just ahead of Fast & Furious 8).

'Furious 8', 'Fifty Shades' Sequels, and More Dated, Plus Universal Shifts 'Pacific Rim 2', 'The Mummy', and Others

23 April 2015 6:40 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In attempt to get ahead of the rest of the field and lock down dates for the next installments in two of its most lucrative franchises, Universal announced release dates for Furious 8, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed today at its CinemaCon panel. We learned earlier this month the Fast & Furious franchise operates a bit backwards, locking down a firm release date and then building the key action set-pieces in the film before finally writing a narrative to connect each sequence, and now it seems the first step in that process is complete as Furious 8 will bow in theaters April 14, 2017. Furious 7 continues to light up the box office with little standing in its way until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters next week, as its worldwide total now stands at $1.158 billion. readmore postid="173096" amz asin="B00NCDVVLY" size="small"In other sequel news, Fifty Shades Darker (teased above »

Disney Eying Tom Cruise for Comedy 'Bob the Musical'

23 April 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tom Cruise isn't the first guy you might think of to star in a movie called Bob the Musical, first because his name isn't Bob, and second because the movie is billed as a high-concept comedy and Cruise is better-known as an action guy, but according to The Wrap Disney has its hopes firmly set on the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation star to lead the project. Cruise isn't officially attached to the project yet, but I count myself a Cruise fan and I have to say I am excited about the prospect of him playing the lead in a comedy again, especially one with an interesting premise. According to the report Disney hopes to reel in Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) to direct a script from Allan Loeb (Rock of Ages). The story is this: a regular guy can suddenly hear the inner songs of everyone's heart after suffering a blow to the head, »

Tom Cruise Crime Thriller 'Mena' Adds Domhnall Gleeson

23 April 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Domhnall Gleeson has been building himself a rather impressive resume the last couple years -- including roles this year in Ex Machina, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, and The Revenant -- and it appears the actor has no plans of slowing down as Variety reports Gleeson is in talks to join the cast of Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation followup, Mena. Directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), Mena centers on Barry Seal (Cruise), a fired Twa pilot who became a major drug smuggler for the Medellin cartel in Central America and was later recruited by the DEA and CIA to provide intelligence for one of the biggest convert operations in the history of the United States, one that nearly brought down the Reagan White House through the Iran Contra scandal. Gleeson joins a cast that includes Cruise, Jayma Mays ("Glee"), and Sarah Wright »

Assassin's Creed creator announces Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

23 April 2015 2:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the creator of Assassin's Creed, Patrice Desilets, comes Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey...

"I always make the same game," jokes Patrice Desilets during his presentation at the Reboot Develop conference in Croatia.

You may not have heard of Desilets, but you've probably played one of his games: since 1997, he's been making things like Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time and Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers. In 2007, he directed the original Assassin's Creed, a game initially commissioned as a Prince Of Persia sequel but quickly became its own franchise, and also its hugely successful sequels Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Desilets parted with Ubisoft in 2013, and after a couple of years spent on a game now on hold - Amsterdam 1666 - he's back with a new indie studio called Panache Digital Games.

The Montreal-based studio, he's announced, is working on its first game: Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.
