Fox Resets "Martian," "Peculiars," "Paper" Dates

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

20th Century Fox is shifting around its release schedule with three films being affected.

The big announcement is that the Ridley Scott 'mystery project' has been moved up from March 4th 2016 to November 25th 2015. It will indeed be the Drew Goddard-penned adaptation of Andy Weir's novel "The Martian" rather than the "Prometheus" sequel as previously rumored.

Matt Damon plays an astronaut who is stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive. Back on Earth, Nasa tries to mount a rescue mission.

As a result of the shift, the Tim Burton-directed "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiars" has been bumped from a July 31st 2015 to that now vacant March 4th 2016 date. It's not an unexpected move as Burton is committed to filming "Big Eyes" before 'Peculiars'.

Fox isn't giving up that July 31st 2015 date either, slotting in the film adaptation of Josh Green's "Paper Towns" on that date. »

Fox Shifts Release Dates for 'The Martian,' 'Miss Peregrine' & More

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

We've known since May of this year that Ridley Scott was going to be at the helm of The Martian, an adaptation of Andy Weir's book of the same name, adapted for the screen by Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. However, since the director always has a slew of projects on his plate, we weren't sure if he would get around to making it sooner or later. But now it seems the project will actually be the director's next film, because Fox has just set it for release on November 25th, 2015. That's disappointing for anyone who was hoping for Prometheus 2, which was presumed for a March 2016 release, and now lies in limbo. So what's happening with that March 4, 2016 release date that Fox already staked out? Well, that's where they're moving their adaptation of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. The Tim Burton film just recently added »

'Miss Peregrine's Home' and 'The Martian' Get New Release Dates

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox has shifted release dates for some of its upcoming projects, including director Ridley Scott's The Martian, starring Matt Damon.

Initially set for release on March 4, 2016, The Martian has been moved to November 25, 2015, where it will go up against Pixar's The Good Dinosaur and Warner Bros.' Midnight Special. The project is based Andy Weir's e-book of the same name, which follows an astronaut (Matt Damon) who becomes stranded on Mars.

The studio has also moved Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children from July 31, 2015 to March 4, 2016, where it will go up against an unspecified Disney Animation project. Tim Burton is attached to direct this adaptation of Ransom Riggs' novel, centering on a 16-year-old boy who is mysteriously transported to an island where he is tasked with protecting a group of orphans. We reported earlier this week that Eva Green is in talks to play the title character. »

Fantasia 2014: ‘The Creep Behind the Camera’ is akin to an ‘Unsolved Mysteries’ episode

8 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Creep Behind The Camera

Written and Directed by Pete Schuermann

USA, 2014

After Tim Burton’s Ed Wood was released, Sarah Jessica Parker remarked in interviews that she had just played the worst actress of all time. Delores Fuller, Wood’s ex-wife and would-be starlet, responded, albeit quietly, merely stating, “That hurt” on a Plan 9 From Outer Space DVD.

The Creep Behind The Camera, Pete Schuermann’s docu-drama surrounding the making of 1962′s The Creeping Terror, retains as much class and care for its subjects are Parker did for Fuller. When it isn’t a straightforward documentary portrait of the swindling, scamming and whoring director A.J. Nelson did to put together a film considered one of the worst of all time, it’s using what could kindly be referred to as high-end Unsolved Mysteries re-creations.

Moving out to Hollywood to make the “best monster movie of all time,” director and star Nelson (a. »

The 'Birdman' Trailer Delivers a Strange, Squawky Peek at the Michael Keaton Flick (Video)

9 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The latest trailer for Alejandro González Iñárritu's upcoming film "Birdman" has got us flying high this fine Friday afternoon. It is a strange, squawky peek at the man formerly known as Birdman (Michael Keaton), an actor who gave up the franchise biz to do, well, whatever superheroes do when they hang up their tights. In this case, Keaton's character Riggan is trying to reboot his career with a stage play, but he's got to do battle with his fall from glory, his insecurities, and all the nay-sayers -- including the one that's in his head. This leads to all sorts of strange scenarios, including one that has Keaton running through Times Square in his tighty whities.

"Birdman," which will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this fall, has a fabulous cast that includes Emma Stone as Riggan's daughter, plus Edward Norton, Amy Ryan, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Andrea Riseborough. »

New 'Birdman' Trailer Previews The Year's Most Absurd Movie

13 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When a movie trailer opens with a tighty whities-clad Michael Keaton meditating mid-air in his apartment, you know you're in for an absurd three minutes. "How did we end up here?" the gruff-voiced actor narrates. "This place is horrible, smells like balls." And the official international trailer for Birdman, directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, 21 Grams), only gets more bizarre from there.

Where Did Alejandro González Iñárritu's 'Babel' Rank on Our List of 2006's Best Movies?

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

31 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is. So, instead of calling Snow White and the Huntsman 2, or rather, The Huntsman, a "sequel," the film is now being referred to as a "spin-off" — or, to be more precise, »

40 Things We Learned from the ‘Ed Wood’ Commentary

31 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

With the popularity of films like The Room, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, and Sharknado (now with a 2 behind it!), it seems that some people tend to like bad movies more than they like good ones. However, long before Tommy Wiseau or James Nguyen were directing films, and before Tara Reid was even born, there was a magical man named Edward D. Wood, Jr. Even with his terrible sense of plot, sequence and cinematic structure, Ed Wood managed to give his own flavor to his films, culminating in the granddaddy of all bad movies: Plan 9 From Outer Space. In 1994, Tim Burton directed Ed Wood, telling the story of the infamous director and how his friendship with horror movie legend Bela Lugosi helped breathe some life into both of their careers. The 2004 DVD release of the film includes a commentary with Burton, edited together with his filmmaking cohorts, which delivers a comprehensive look at the film’s creation »

‘Into The Woods’, the adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim play, gets its first trailer

31 July 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Stephen Sondheim has been a major name on Broadway for decades, very few off his plays have migrated off the stage, with the Tim Burton adaptation of Sweeney Todd being the biggest exception to date. However, it’s not set to be the last, as the next play of Sondheim that’s set to hit the big screen is Into The Woods. Directed by Rob Marshall, who has previous experience in the musical genre with movies such as Chicago and Nine, the movie version eschews transplanting Broadway stars into the role, instead filling the cast with performers such as Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, and Anna Kendrick. Amidst stories of rewrites to the script and the lingering question of how the movie shall incorporate certain elements of the stage story, the first trailer for the film has now been released. Into the Woods opens Christmas Day. »

The ‘Birdman’ international trailer reveals more about the film’s storyline

31 July 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With movies such as 21 Grams and Babel in his filmography, Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu has garnered a number of fans, many of whom are looking forward to his first feature film since 2010. However, the story itself, which revolves around an actor best known for playing a superhero trying to regain his fame and artistic integrity, also drew a lot of interest, moreso when it was revealed that Michael Keaton had been cast in the lead role. With Keaton being best known for playing Batman in Tim Burton’s imagining of the superhero, many are interested to see how he’d interpret this role. Following the film’s first trailer, a new international trailer has now been released, which delves into the story and character relationships a little further. The film also stars Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, and Amy Ryan, and is set to be released in the Us on October 17th, »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

Closer look at the Warner Bros. Museum VIP Tour commemorating Batman’s 75th anniversary

29 July 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rather large rock the past few months then you’ll be aware that this year marks the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic comic book characters of all time, Batman. To help commemorate the momentous occasion a “75 Years of Batman” exhibit is now showing at the Warner Bros. Museum in Los Angeles and courtesy of the geeky folk over at Beyond the Marquee we now have a cool behind-the-scenes video of the VIP Tour.

The video features archivist Mark Greenhaigh and “Batmobile expert” John Kourounis showing off and talking about some of the iconic props and costumes used in all seven Batman movies from over the years. Every version of the Batman suit is on show from Tim Burton’s stiff necked design to Christopher Nolan’s adaptable Dark Knight variant. I think I speak for us all when I say »

A Dame To Shill For

29 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here. My boyfriend likes to tease me that he loved Eva Green first, and he did - he loved her the first time she showed up on some red carpet wearing long glamorous sleeves in a sea of bared skin. It's not that you can exactly call Eva Green demure - the first time any of us saw her she was taking a bath with her on-screen brother while pawing at Michael Pitt's genitalia after all, and earlier this year she toplessly mounted Sullivan Stapleton while swinging around a sword for god's sake. Not to mention the bizarre throwback moral brouhaha that's currently been greeting every piece of art-work associated with her Sin City: A Dame To Kill For character - hide the children, there are breasts!

So no, demure's not really the word for her. But dive as she does, time and again, into these depths of gorgeous depravity, »

Tim Burton Considers Eva Green For Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

29 July 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

From the haunted Vanessa Ives of Penny Dreadful to the fearless warrior Artemisia of 300: Rise of an Empire and the psychotic sexpot Angelique Bouchard of Dark Shadows, Eva Green is an actress who revels in the dark dance of macabre characters. So it should come as little surprise that she's said to be circling the title role in Tim Burton's in-development adventure Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Variety reports that Eva Green has entered into talks to headline Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which Chernin Entertainment is producing. Adapted from the novel by Ransom Riggs, this movie is eying a production start date of February 2015. So Burton and his producers are likely eager to start locking down talent. Should she sign on, Green would be reteaming with Burton for the first time since Dark Shadows. While critics appreciated her willfully campy portrayal in »

Tim Burton Wants Eva Green To Run ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’

29 July 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

When Eva Green appeared in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows it was one of those ‘How has this not happened before?’ moments. Burton was probably under the same impression, for he’s now looking to cast her as the lead in his adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. The story is a striking blend of narrative and archive photography and should make an intriguing project for the director. The maker of Edward Scissorhands shooting a movie about a group of dispossessed orphans being chased by monsters on a Welsh island? The idea could have been extrapolated from the sweat in his thinking cap.

Green is in talks to play Peregrine, a transmogrifying woman from the 1940s who watches over the younglings of the title. If everything is ironed out it’ll be another eye-catching role for this lovely yet unsettling actress, who is also due »

Eva Green eyed for Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

29 July 2014 5:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

French starlet Eva Green – fresh off her appearance in Robert Rodriguez’ latest Sin City chapter – is currently in talks to reunite with her Dark Shadows director Tim Burton for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The movie – which is an adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ debut novel – tells the story of Jacob, a young boy who following a horrific family tragedy follows clues that take him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island, where he must protect a group of orphans with intriguing powers.

The book – originally published in June 2011 – has been listed on the New York Times bestseller list. Eva Green is set to play the titular role, who is somewhat of a guardian to the orphans in their struggle against strange creatures hell bent on destroying them.

Jane Goldman (Stardust, X-Men: First Class) penned the screenplay with Peter Chernin (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Oblivion) on production duties. »
