Will Smith’s Concussion Will Come On Christmas Day

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

When you are gathered around the Christmas tree, or exchanging presents with your loved ones, or enjoying It’s A Wonderful Life on constant repeat, you know that at some point you begin thinking: “You know what this Christmas needs? More concussions.” That’s what Sony Pictures is banking on, at any rate, as they nab a December 25, 2015 release date for the Will Smith football movie Concussion.

While I joke, Concussion is actually a serious film about the doctor who discovered the degree of trauma to the head caused by playing professional football, blowing the whistle and causing quite a few headaches across the NFL. Will Smith plays the doctor, Bennet Omalu, who discovered Cte (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) in the brains of two NFL players who committed suicide. The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Albert Brooks, Paul Reiser and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, along with Luke Wilson as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. »

15 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Mission: Impossible 5 has safely vacated it's Christmas Day, 2015 release slot, Sony Pictures is quick to fill in the empty space on the calendar with their NFL football drama Concussion.

The news is nicely timed for this weekend's Super Bowl. Will we see the first trailer during the big game?

Opening December 25, Concussion is based on Dr. Bennet Omalu's studies. A David vs. Goliath journey, the forensic neuropathologist made the first discovery of football-related brain trauma in a pro player and fought to bring awareness to the public. In his search for the truth behind the devastating malady, Omalu's quest humanizes the price paid by professional athletes in impact sports but also by people who challenge the status quo as it exposes the political, »

Will Smith’s ‘Concussion’ To Hit Theaters Christmas Day

27 January 2015 5:08 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Sony Pictures announced today that it has scheduled the Will Smith drama Concussion for a Christmas Day release. The film is opening at a prime time, not only because of the holiday movie season but also just as the NFL will be preparing for the playoffs. Concussion follows Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of football-related brain trauma in a pro player and fought to bring awareness to the public. In his search for the truth, Omalu, a total outsider to pro football, takes on the sports industry’s status quo. His studies on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte), prompted the NFL to take brain-related injuries seriously. Cte was cited in the suicides of former NFL stars Junior Seau and Dave Duerson. Deadline announced Smith’s attachment to the film back in June.

Written and directed by Peter Landesman (Parkland), Concussion is based on the GQ »

Mission: Impossible 5 Coming Five Months Sooner Than Expected

27 January 2015 7:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Opening a week after Star Wars: The Force Awakens pretty much guarantees that Mission: Impossible 5 will fail to hit the #1 spot at the box office. Sensibly, Paramount Pictures have now moved the movie five months way from it!

Don’t panic though as we won’t be waiting until 2016 to see Tom Cruise return as Ethan Hunt!

Mission: Impossible 5’s new release date is July 31st, this year. This means it will open opposite Southpaw (starring Jake Gyllenhaal), the Point Break remake, and Tarsem Singh’s science fiction thriller Selfless starring Ryan Reynolds.

It’s also sandwiched right between Ant-Man and Fantastic Four, so the busy July will be very interesting to see play out at the box office. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol earned just under $700 million when it opened in 2011.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), Mission: Impossible 5 also stars Jeremy Renner, Alec Baldwin, »

Mission: Impossible 5 arriving five months early

26 January 2015 10:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount movies Mission: Impossible 5, starring Tom Cruise, forward from December to July...

Now here's a sign of confidence. We hear plenty of times about a studio moving a blockbuster movie back, and buying itself some more time at the last minute to sort things out. But how often, within a year of release, does a studio being a film forward by five months?

That's just what Paramount Pictures has done with the still-in-production Mission: Impossible 5. Originally scheduled for December, the film is now going to land on July 31st 2015.

Paramount, in turn, has moved the film Monster Trucks (a live action/animation mash-up) from May to Mission: Impossible 5's original December release date.

The new Mission: Impossible film sees Tom Cruise reprising the role of Ethan Hunt, and teaming up again with his Jack Reacher director, Christopher McQuarrie. Co-starring in the movie are Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, »

26 January 2015 3:43 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible 5 has shifted to a summer release.

The latest instalment of the spy movie franchise had been scheduled to open at Christmas, but will be moved up for a July 31 release in the Us.

Paramount has also shifted the animated/live-action hybrid movie Monster Trucks to Mission: Impossible 5's prior Christmas Day slot.

Mission: Impossible 5 will reunite Cruise with his Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie.

McQuarrie also wrote the Cruise movies Valkyrie and Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow.

Cruise will star opposite franchise veterans Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames, while Alec Baldwin has been cast as the head of the CIA.

Filming took place over the last six months in Austria, Morocco, Monaco and the UK.

5 Ways Actors Over 50 Are Shaking Up Their Careers to Avoid the Johnny Depp Curse

26 January 2015 3:01 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 51-year-old actor adds another flop to his already long streak, but other actors aren’t betting their careers on only box-office bankability

Johnny Depp could be considered one of Hollywood’s biggest stars on the planet, but he hasn’t had a hit at the box office in ages and “Mortdecai” has just been added to the list of bombs.

The actor plays the Wolf in Disney’s ensemble musical “Into the Woods,” but his last leading man hit was 2011’s installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Last year’s “Transcendence” fizzled, as did 2013’s “The Lone Ranger” and »

Mission: Impossible 5 moved up five months to avoid Star Wars: The Force Awakens

26 January 2015 1:47 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it was only a matter of time…

In what is sure to be a wise move on Paramount Pictures’ part, the studio has shifted the release of the fifth instalment of the Mission: Impossible franchise to avoid confrontation with Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, bringing the date forward almost a full five months to July 31st 2015.

Mission: Impossible 5 was originally slated to arrive on Christmas Day, one week after the release of J.J. Abrams’ surefire blockbuster. Mi:5 becomes the second film to move clear of The Force Awakens after Kung Fu Panda 3, which will now land in March 2016.

Mission: Impossible 5 is directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher), and sees franchise veterans Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner returning alongside Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) and Sean Harris (Prometheus).

'Mission: Impossible 5' Moves from Christmas to Summer 2015

26 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm not sure whether I like this news or not. On the one hand I get Mission: Impossible 5 five months earlier than expected, on the other, does this mean director Christopher McQuarrie and team have to rush to meet a new release datec The news came today that Paramount was moving the return of Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible 5 from a December 25 release date, all the way up to July 31, a packed weekend for sure as it includes Antoine Fuqua's Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tarsem Singh's Selfless and the Point Break remake no one asked for. The move means it gets a nice, cushy summer release spot away from the likes of Spectre, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Though it does mean it's opening one weekend ahead of Josh Trank's The Fantastic Four, »

'Mission: Impossible 5' Gets New July 2015 Release Date

26 January 2015 12:43 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Good news for Tom Cruise fans! Paramount Pictures has moved the impending sequel Mission: Impossible 5 from it's Christmas Day 2015 release slot to a much more appealing summer date. The shift was presumably made to get the movie out of the way of next winter's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is set to open a week earlier on December 18.

Mission: Impossible 5 moves from December 25 to July 31, a full five months earlier than expected. While no plot details have been officially divulged at this time, it is known that Tom Cruise will return as Ethan Hunt. He will be joined by past franchise stars Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg. Director Christopher McQuarrie, who worked with Tom Cruise on the 2012 adaptation Jack Reacher, has already completed principal photography on Mission: Impossible 5, and is in the midst of pos-production on the film. A trailer is expected to arrive shortly. »

Sundance Film Review: Sarah Silverman in ‘I Smile Back’

25 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rarely has a performer striven so concertedly to shed any trace of his/her comedy roots as Sarah Silverman does over the course of “I Smile Back,” an addiction drama in which the acerbic comedienne gives the kind of warts-and-all, let-it-all-hang-out (body parts, fluids, etc.) turn that awards’ consultants dreams are made of. But Silverman’s performance is more than an attention-getting stunt, and it’s her hellish rendering of a New Jersey housewife under the influence of drugs, alcohol and mental illness that elevates director Adam Salky’s sophomore feature above the suburban-nightmare movie-of-the-week it otherwise often resembles. Even with the buzz sure to ignite around its Sundance premiere, “Smile” will prove a tough sell commercially, where more sensitive types will blanch at the film’s Olympian gauntlet of self-abuse, reckless endangerment and public humiliation.

Memories of Alice, part 1 by Anne-Katrin Titze

Still Alice co-director/writer Wash Westmoreland on Julianne Moore: "She has that way of acting that has a mystery to it." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

In Still Alice, Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland stage an entrancing battle around the power of remembrance, a form of detective story on memory loss, starring Julianne Moore, who gives a mesmerizing performance as a linguistics professor diagnosed at age 50 with a rare form of Alzheimer's disease. Kate Bosworth, Kristen Stewart and Hunter Parrish play her children, who all weather the storm in their own way. Alec Baldwin, as her husband, wants to flee and stay, he fell in love with her mind and can't bear to see it go.

Julianne Moore as Alice: "Alice is terrified of her deterioration but tries to act as normal as possible. She is spinning a lot of plates."

The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

24 January 2015 12:49 PM, PST | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »
