Pirates of the Caribbean 5 TV Trailer Goes Hunting for Jack Sparrow

25 March 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Today, Disney released a TV trailer for their upcoming summer sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. There isn't much new footage in this one minute spot. But it is cut quicker, and comes across a lot more flashier than the full-length trailer that debuted just a few weeks ago. It sure makes the sequel look like a rousing adventure that is more in tune with the original than some of the later movies.

Film Review: ‘Long Strange Trip’

17 March 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Long Strange Trip” is a movie that every Deadhead in the kozmic universe will want to see, and with good reason: At three hours and 58 minutes, it has the sprawl and generosity of a good Dead show, yet there’s nothing indulgent about it — it’s an ardent piece of documentary classicism. The film counts Martin Scorsese among its executive producers, and it was directed by Amir Bar-Lev (“The Tillman Story”), who works with the historical meticulousness a subject like this one deserves. Bar-Lev, who grew up in the Bay Area, uses the long-form running time to digress where he sees fit, but mostly he stays hooked to the center of his subject: how the Grateful Dead, after rising to prominence as an electric jam band in the late ’60s — the hippie minstrels of the Haight-Ashbury circus — took on a wriggling, effusive identity of their own that could be shaped »

CBS Moves ‘Training Day’ to Saturday Night

10 March 2017 5:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS is moving “Training Day” to Saturday nights at 9 p.m. beginning April 8. The scheduling change follows the Feb. 25 death of series star Bill Paxton, who passed away at age 61 from complications following heart surgery.

The new season of “The Amazing Race” will take over for “Training Day” in the 10 p.m. Thursday timeslot, premiering March 30. The reality competition series had been scheduled to return Friday April 21, but will move to an earlier Thursday premiere to accommodate the “Training Day” shift.

In its new time period, “Training Day” will, for two weeks, follow “Ransom,” an international co-production from executive producer Frank Spotnitz. CBS had been airing reruns in the 9 p.m. hour on Saturdays. The final seven episodes of “Training Day” season one will air in consecutive weeks.

Training Day” has averaged a 0.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and 4.2 million total viewers so far this season, according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. Production »

Geostorm Trailer Destroys a Wonderful World

8 March 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Long-time Roland Emmerich collaborator Dean Devlin directs Geostorm, a big budget disaster movie with so much devastation it can only be described as "Emmerich-esque". Very reminiscent of The Day After Tomorrow, in which global warming turned the planet into a deep freeze, the bombastic Jerry Bruckheimer production stars Gerard Butler as a man-on-a-mission to space to determine what's gone so wrong with some newfangled weather satellites that the entire planet is being destroyed. I'm in! Synopsis: When catastrophic climate change endangers Earth's very survival, world governments unite and create the Dutch Boy Program: a world wide net of satellites, surrounding the planet, that are armed with geoengineering technologies designed to stave off the natural disasters. After successfully protecting the planet for two years, something is...

Nature Fights Back in First Trailer for ‘Geostorm’

8 March 2017 6:26 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After working closely with Roland Emmerich, producing Independence Day, Stargate, Godzilla, and more, producer Dean Devlin is in fitting territory with his directorial debut. Geostorm imagines a world where the climate is controlled by satellites, but things soon take a turn for the worse when technology goes awry, causing disaster across the globe.

The film, which will have begun shooting three years ago when it finally arrives this fall, reportedly recently had about $15 million worth of re-shoots under the direction of Judge Dredd helmer Danny Cannon and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Does it spell bad weather? Judging from the trailer, it looks to be VFX-heavy spectacle-driven adventure, but let’s just hope it’s not as brainless as Emmerich’s last film.

Starring Gerard Butler, Abbie Cornish, Alexandra Lara, Jim Sturgess, Amr Waked, Ed Harris and Andy García, check out the teaser below.

Joe Carnahan Exits as Director of Will Smith-Martin Lawrence’s ‘Bad Boys 3’

7 March 2017 7:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joe Carnahan has vacated the directing gig for Sony’s third “Bad Boys” action-comedy due to scheduling conflicts.

Sony had no comment on the exit. The studio has three possible director candidates for the Will Smith-Martin Lawrence comedy, which was titled “Bad Boys for Life” in August and pushed back to a Nov. 8, 2018 release date. Carnahan had written the most recent draft of the script.

The movie would reteam Smith and Lawrence as the freewheeling Miami narcotics detectives who starred in the first two movies in 1995 and 2003, both directed by Michael Bay. Jerry Bruckheimer is returning as producer with plot details currently under wraps.

Carnahan is developing an English-language remake of Indonesian action movie “The Raid.”

The first film, which was also produced by the late Don Simpson with Bruckheimer, grossed more than $140 million worldwide and made Smith into a star. “Bad Boys II” grossed more than $270 million worldwide. »

Pirates 5 Poster Sets Sail with Captain Jack, New Trailer Coming Tomorrow

1 March 2017 12:43 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney has released a new poster and concept art illustration for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, to get fans ready for the new trailer debuting tomorrow. The poster offers a new look at the villainous Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), along with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Captain Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush) and newcomers Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) and Henry (Brenthon Thwaites). The studio has also released an intriguing piece of concept art, that features "ghost sharks" that will be seen in the movie.

Disney debuted the new poster on social media today, while AMC Theatres debuted the concept art. It isn't exactly clear how these "ghost sharks" came to be, or how they fit into this story, but they most likely aren't related to the 2013 Syfy original movie Ghost Shark, or its 2015 sequel Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws. It's possible we'll get our first look at these »

'Training Day' Creator Remembers Bill Paxton: "He Swung for the Fences, Every Time"

1 March 2017 7:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Bill always sought out the shyest on set, welcomed the wallflowers. He gave the motor cops on traffic control just as much attention as he did Jerry Bruckheimer. While we were circling through Watts, shooting a scene for the pilot, some gangbangers recognized him and shouted out, "Hey, Aliens!" He waved and gave them a quick "Game over, man!" and then continued his monologue without breaking stride. He was hilarious. Most of his jokes were at his own expense. Bill never took himself too seriously. But he was serious about the work. He swung for the fences, every take, every »

Production on the 13-episode first season of “Training Day,” starring Paxton and Justin Cornwell as two Lapd detectives, wrapped in December. No decision has yet been made about the show’s future.

Bill Paxton’s career spanned film and TV, where his many memorable roles included “Big Love,” “Hatfields & McCoys,” “Texas Rising,” and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” But it’s CBS’ adaptation of the film “Training Day,” currently on the air, that will now serve as his small-screen swan song.
