‘The Bronze’ Pushed to October to Avoid Summer Comedy Crush (Exclusive)

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

The Bronze,” a raunchy comedy about a troubled Olympic gymnast, will try to stick the landing next fall.

Relativity Studios is moving the film from July 10, 2015, when it was slate to debut in limited release, to October 16, 2015. It will once again debut in a limited cluster of theaters before expanding on October 23, 2015.

The studio was concerned that the film would be overshadowed by an onslaught of R-rated summer comedies like “Ted 2,” “Vacation,” and “Spy,” and felt that October was a less competitive time, according to an individual with knowledge. In its new release date, “The Bronze” can steer clear of the over a dozen comedies all vying for audience attention from May through August. There aren’t as many mainstream funny movies this fall, and its new slot is one vacated by “Vacation,” which moved into July.

The Bronze” will open against the horror thriller “Crimson Peak,” Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies, »

‘Jaws’ Resurfaces in Theaters for 40th Anniversary

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

Before “Shark Week,” “Deep Blue Sea” and the monstrous whirlwind “Sharknado,” there was “Jaws,” the great white terrifying millions to the chilling score by John Williams. 40 years after the fish antagonist hit the big screen and Roy Schneider’s bigger boat, the film will now make a reappearance.

On June 21, nearly 500 theaters nationwide will be showing the epic thriller for its anniversary, presented by Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Universal Pictures.

In 1975, Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the Peter Benchley book of the same name became an instant success and changed summer blockbusters to come. Four decades ago, Variety’s A.D. Murphy wrote in his review that the film was “an artistic and commercial smash.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 29 at FathomEvents.com and participating theaters.

Battle Royale: Summer Blockbusters - Round 1 Results

4 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The first round of Battle Royale has come and gone, and the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, Captain Jack Sparrow, and Indiana Jones are amongst the victorious, leaving the Spider-Man and Transformers franchises in the dust.

Unfortunately, the (arguable) “first blockbuster ever,” Steven Spielberg’s Jaws, is out of the running for you favourite summer blockbuster, as it was beaten out by Darth Vader and Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. Jaws put up a good fight, but sharks have nothing on lightsabers, clearly.

Another notable loss in the first round of Battle Royale was the Harry Potter franchise getting completely shut out by the Avengers. This makes a lot of sense, given that the S.H.I.E.L.D.-run superheroes enjoyed a boost from their May release of their Joss Whedon follow-up, Age of Ultron.

 

We have some great showdowns to look forward to in »

7 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

'Ant-Man' Writers Join 'Transformers' Writers Room, Origin Story Expected

27 May 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Akiva Goldsman-led Transformers writing room continues to assemble. In addition to other Marvel scribes like Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man 2) and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), who signed on to pen new spin-offs and sequels in this now-extended universe, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, production re-writers on Marvel's latest, Ant-Man, are also attached to pen a new movie. As far as what film they'll write, it's as unclear as which ones the other mentioned writers, plus "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman, will lend their time towards. Although as details continue to emerge, reports speculate one film in this new series is not a sequel or a spin-off but rather a prequel with the working title Transformers One. It's said this one focuses on the planet Cybertron, the home planet of the Autobots and Decepticons before they arrived on Earth. »

Watch: New Clip And Featurette With Steven Spielberg For 'Jurassic World'

27 May 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Roughly two weeks sits between us and the fourth trip to a world where a dinosaur theme park still seems like a good idea, even after multiple attacks and deaths at the jaws of the once-extinct creatures. “Jurassic World” is projected to have an opening weekend of at least $100 million, due in no small part to the all-out marketing blitz Universal has thrown. Despite that amazing pre-release tracking, the studio is not letting up on the gas pedal of the marketing machine, so there’s now a new featurette, clip, TV spot, and poster. First up, is a featurette that includes the beard himself, Steven Spielberg reminding you that he’s still tangentially involved in this new sequel/reboot. Cast and crew alike talk about how respectful they wanted to be to Spielberg’s first crack at the dinosaurs, “Jurassic Park.” After that, you can check out some raptors in a clip from the film. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Phenomenal Allen as Too-Good-to-Be-True U.S. V.P. Candidate in Highly Watchable But Ultimately Coy Political Thriller

'The Contender' movie hero: Joan Allen as the virtuous Sen. Laine Hanson. 'The Contender' movie: Exceptional Joan Allen in intriguing but ultimately wimpy political drama "Principles only mean anything when we stick by them when they're inconvenient," says Senator Laine Hanson, played by Joan Allen in Rod Lurie's The Contender. Senator Hanson should know. In Lurie's political drama, the poor Democratic senator is grilled by a Republican inquisitor with a bad hairdo (Gary Oldman) who wants to prevent at all costs her being confirmed as the next Vice President of the United States. Even if that means destroying Hanson's political career by making public the senator's alleged participation in an orgy during her college days.* Now, why such hatred? Well, the Republican watchdog is certain that the U.S. president (Jeff Bridges) has chosen Sen. Hanson because of her gender instead of her qualifications for the job. Adding insult to injury, »

20 year ago today, 'Casper' changed everything. No, seriously.

26 May 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What if I told you "Casper" was an important film in movie history? Twenty years ago today, Universal released "Casper," and it did okay. It was not a critical hit, and it was not a box-office sensation. But in its way, "Casper" was revolutionary, and at the time, I was absolutely fascinated by the movie and, more specifically, by the Ilm work in the film. In late 1994 and early 1995, I was dating/living with/engaged to a young woman who was working in marketing at Universal. She was about as low on the totem pole as she could be, but excited about what she was doing and excited about the various films she got to work on. Because she had to basically immerse herself in each of the films she was working on, that meant I had that same opportunity. I remember reading three scripts in particular during her time there that got me curious. »

‘Jurassic World’ Eyes Huge $100 Million Plus Opening

26 May 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jurassic World” is shaping up to be a box office monster.

The latest installment in Universal Pictures’ “when dinosaurs attack” franchise doesn’t hit theaters until June 12, but pre-release tracking suggests it will feast on an opening weekend of $100 million or more — an impressive debut for a franchise that hasn’t released a new chapter in more than a decade.

“The trailers are connecting in such a big way,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com.

Pre-release ticket sales have been robust since they kicked off on May 15, and Fandango reports that the film is one of its top five best sellers this week.

Time appears to have made the heart grow fonder for Universal and Steven Spielberg’s prehistoric reptiles. Though the first film shattered box office records and the second installment was the third highest grossing film of 1997 (both pics were helmed by Spielberg »

Harrison Ford has been on the mend since March 5, when he crashed a small, vintage World War II airplane near Santa Monica. He was "battered but Ok" after the accident, according to son Ben Ford, and received treatment at a local hospital for undisclosed minor injuries. Before the end of the month, though, the 72-year-old Star Wars hunk was spotted driving around the Pacific Palisades and even reportedly popped in for a visit at Steven Spielberg's house! And just last week, Calista Flockhart's hubby was photographed for the first time out and about in L.A., once again behind the wheel of a Tesla and looking no worse for the wear! Phew!
