Godzilla is a movie that everyone has heard about, even if they have never seen it. There have been so many manifestations of Godzilla in cinema, from the original 1954 version, to his battles with Mothra, Mechagodzilla and Hedorah, to the terrible 1998 Roland Emmerich version, to this one, 2014’s Godzilla, directed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards.
I was excited about this film since first hearing about it last year, and have been following its progression over the past few months as casting and further details were announced. When the first trailer arrived on the scene a few months ago I was further intrigued, and by the time the film was released this week, I was thoroughly anticipating the re-emergence of one of cinemas most famous monsters. »

I never pictured Ron Howard as much of a Roland Emmerich guy, but that's the unexpected spirit exploding off the trailer for his latest film, "In the Heart of the Sea." The film tells the true story the American whaleship "Essex" and its ill-fated run-in with a mighty sperm whale in November 1820. The story became the basis for Herman Melville's contemplative novel "Moby Dick." Howard's version of the story looks more like that time the Kraken ate Jack Sparrow, a beefed up, seafaring 'Apollo 13.' That's not bad thing. Staring Chris Hemsworth as First Mate Owen Chase, the film recounts the crew's experience surviving the Jaws-on-steroids high seas encounter. Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Jordi Molla are all aboard as costars, with Tom Holland and Brendan Gleeson playing young and old versions of the narrator. Charles Leavitt ("Blood Diamond," upcoming "Warcraft") wrote the original draft of the script, »

Fox and Paramount have put the proverbial cards on the table and reshuffled several release dates for a variety of their upcoming films. Chief among them is Independence Day 2, with Fox pushing Roland Emmerich’s long-gestating follow-up off 2016’s Fourth of July weekend, meaning ID4-2 will now open on June 24th.
This now pits the sequel up against Universal’s revamped take on The Mummy and, perhaps more importantly, ushers Independence Day 2 away from Tarzan, Spielberg’s The Bfg and an as-yet-untitled Marvel film that is currently holding on to July 8th, 2016.
Sticking with Fox for the meantime and it’s understood the company has postponed the Rupert Friend-led Hitman: Agent 47, with the video game adaptation now expected to hit theaters on August 28th, 2015 as opposed to its original February release.
In terms of Paramount, we’ve learned that Christopher B. Landon’s upcoming zom-com Scouts Vs. »

Independence Day 2 has moved forward, but Hitman: Agent 47 and Scouts Vs Zombies are pushed back several months.
There's been a bit of a jiggle around with regards release dates in the Us, that involves one or two films moving a few weeks, and others moving a few months.
Let's start with Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2, which has been moved just a little away from, er, an Independence Day release in America. It's been brought forward a week, from July 1st 2016 to its new date of June 24th 2016. There, it will do direct battle with Universal's reboot of The Mummy.
The two films with big release date shifts?
First up, there's the rebooting of the Hitman movie series, Hitman: Agent 47. That's been put back a good six months, from its original date of February 27th 2015 to August 28th 2015 instead. Moving back eight months, meanwhile, is Paramount's upcoming horror, Scouts Vs Zombies. »
20th Century Fox made a few tweaks to its schedule today, shifting Independence Day 2 from the crowded July 1, 2016 release date to June 24, 2016, while moving Hitman: Agent 47 up nearly six months from February 27, 2015 to August 28, 2015.
Independence Day 2, which is reportedly bringing back Jeff Goldblum to star, would have faced Sony's Angry Birds, Disney's The Bfg and Warner Bros.' Tarzan on July 1, but now it only has to contend with Universal's Untitled Mummy Reboot one week earlier. No story details have been given for Independence Day 2, which will not feature the return of Will Smith .
Hitman: Agent 47, which stars Rupert Friend as the title character, will now face the Dimension Films thriller Regression on August 28, 2015, instead of going up against Warner Bros.' Focus and The Transporter Legacy on February 27, 2015. The plot is based on the video game of the same name, which follows a sole assassin who works for a sinister corporation. »
We’ve got a few release date stories to attend to this evening. Briefly: The Independence Day 2 release date has been moved up a week, from July 1, 2016 to June 24, 2016. Fox’s Hitman: Agent 47 is being moved from February 2015 to August 28, 2015. The untitled Christmas comedy starring Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been moved up from December to November 25, 2015. The Weinstein Company’s family film Paddington is being pushed from this Christmas to January 16, 2015. More on these films and their new dates after the jump. Director Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel now moves away from Warner Bros.’ Tarzan and Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg on its title appropriate weekend, as it will now square off directly against The Mummy reboot on June 24, 2016. Cast has yet to be announced, but we do know that Will Smith will not be back. Fox’s video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47 starring Rupert Friend »

Jeff Goldblum recently took the Internet by storm with his cheeky Ge Link light bulb commercial (directed by comedy team Tim and Eric), in which the finely coiffed actor seduces viewers from a hot tub and makes a bedazzled Liberace-style smoking jacket sexy. The ad softened the blow for fans when they found out Goldblum wouldn’t be appearing in the 2015 sequel to Jurassic Park. News about the Independence Day sequel, however, has a happier ending. Time reports that things aren't official yet, but Goldblum has advised that director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin have a part for him in the actioner. “I had a meeting and have been talking over the last several months or year with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the producer, and they’ve been...

Christopher Reeve Foundation for spinal cord and stem cell research (photo: Darryl Hannah and Christopher Reeve in 'Rear Window') (See previous post: "'Superman' Christopher Reeve and his Movies: Ten-Year Death Anniversary.") In his 1998 autobiography Still Me, Christopher Reeve recalled: "At an especially bleak moment [prior to an operation that might result in his death], the door [of his hospital room] flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay." The "old friend" was the recently deceased Robin Williams, whom Reeve had befriended while both were studying at Juillard. Eventually, Reeve became a staunch advocate for spinal cord and stem cell research, sponsoring with his wife the Christopher Reeve Foundation — later renamed the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation (and formerly known »

The Gambler: The first photos from The Gambler reveal Mark Wahlberg in various stages of a dangerous addiction. The actor, who stars as a gambling-obsessed college professor, lost some 60 pounds for the role, but the high school dropout says the greater challenge was "being believable as a teacher." (Wahlberg recently completed high school online and finally received a diploma.) Brie Larson and Jessica Lange also star; the movie opens in theaters on December 19. [USA Today] Independence Day 2: Will Smith remains (evidently) indecisive about the opportunity to appear in a sequel to Independence Day, but costar Jeff Goldblum is ready to return. He says that producer Dean Devlin and director Roland Emmerich told him they "have a part" for him...

Jeff Goldblum had a bit of a run in the 90s when he appeared in Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Independence Day, three of that decade's bigger movies. While he's not appearing in 2015's Jurassic World, there is talk of him reprising the role of David Levinson in Independence Day 2, or ID4: 2, or ID4ever, or whichever title they decide to use.
In a recent interview with Time, the actor had this to say about ID4: 2:
“I had a meeting and have been talking over the last several months or year with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the producer, and they’ve been cooking up and say they have a part for me in what they hope will be a plan to make another one pretty soon,”

Cinema rarely looks to events of a pre-biblical vintage, but a mini-genre of pre-civilisation survival pictures does exist for those who pray to the old ones. The first instance of this primitive return to our roots which spears our interest was Clan of the Cave Bear, mysteriously directed by frequent Scorsese cinematographer Michael Chapman. More recently Kevin Reynolds took us on a adventure to Easter Island with Rapa Nui, and Roland Emmerich’s credibility was crushed with 10,000 BC, whilst the more seriously minded Nicolas Winding Refn added his brooding masculinity to the genre with his monosyllabic Valhalla Rising. Perhaps the highest profile film in the prehistoric swaps of survival is Mel Gibson’s brutal Apocalypto, which seemed to have been culled from the video game techniques of peril and boss fights rather than the historical archive of the local Natural History museum, »
It might disappoint you that Dr. Ian Malcolm will not be featured in Colin Trevorrow's upcoming Jurassic Park sequel Jurassic World, but don't take that to mean that Jeff Goldblum is done reprising characters he played back in the 1990s. In fact, it turns out that he may be doing one very soon, as director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin have already approached him about the in-development Independence Day 2. This cool bit of news was recently dropped by Goldblum during an interview with Time Magazine. The actor says that he has been meeting and talking with Emmerich and Devlin over the last several months and confirmed that they are making room for him to return as computer expert David Levinson. But while the film is currently penciled in for a July 2016 release date - courtesy of 20th Century Fox - Goldblum added that the state of the project »
We've not heard much for a while about Roland Emmerich's sequel to his 1996 blockbuster, Independence Day. We know that Will Smith has opted not to appear in the film, and we know that Emmerich is directing again, luring some of the key original cast back.
And now we know too that Jeff Goldblum is returning. In an interview with Time, Goldblum revealed that "I had a meeting and have been talking over the last several months or year with Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin, the producer, and they’ve been cooking up and say they have a part for me". Goldblum noted that the plan was "to make another one pretty soon".
The last we heard, Independence Day 2 had a release date in place of July 1st 2016. To the best of our knowledge, that date still holds. »
