A couple of key release date changes today.
With Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman" prequel nabbing the April 22nd 2016 release date this morning, the studio has pushed back Alex Kurtzmann's "The Mummy" reboot. Originally scheduled for that date, it will instead launch two months later on June 26 2016.
Next up, Will Canon's supernatural thriller "Demonic," based on an idea by James Wan, has scored a December 12th release this year through Dimension Films. Maria Bello and Frank Grillo star as a psychologist and detective respectively who question the surviving members of a group of amateur college ghost-hunters after five of them are found brutally murdered inside an abandoned home.
Finally, "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart made his directorial debut last summer filming an adaptation of Maziar Bahari's "Rosewater". Open Road acquired U.S. rights in May following a private Cannes screening, and now they've announced a platform rollout »

Dimension Films announced today that it will release the supernatural thriller Demonic, presented by James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw), on December 12, 2014. The film is produced by James Wan and Lee Clay (Beautiful Boy) and directed by Will Canon (Brotherhood). The script is based on an original idea of James Wan's.
The film centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre where five college students were brutally murdered inside an abandoned home. Detective Mark Lewis and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, which was believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying.

A Rosewater release date has finally been set, and it’s in the heart of awards season later this fall. Jon Stewart’s highly anticipated directorial debut will open in select theaters on November 7th, the same date as Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. However, Open Road Films will likely take good care of rolling the film out slowly over the course of the month, so no one's expecting it to give Interstellar a run for its money. Written and directed by Stewart, the film stars Gael Garcia Bernal and is an adaptation of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari‘s memoir, Then They Came for Me. Bahari, who was born in Tehran, went to Iran in 2009 to interview Mir-Hossein Moussavi, but was arrested by the Revolutionary Guard, and then interrogated and beaten for 118 days by a man known only as “Rosewater”. Stewart had a personal connection to the story as Bahari’s »

Ghost hunters want to hear from the dead, but what if a haunted house’s spirits gave them a powerfully violent response? Previously known as House of Horror, we’ve been tracking the James Wan-produced Demonic since early 2011, and now the movie about ghost-hunting gone wrong has received a release date from Dimension Films.
Horror fans looking to see a fright flick around the holidays can rejoice, as Demonic will hit theaters on December 12th. Produced by James Wan, Demonic was directed by Will Canon (Brotherhood) and filmed in Baton Rouge. The script was written by Max La Bella and is based on an original idea from James Wan:
“The film centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre: five college students, brutally murdered inside a decrepit, abandoned home. Fresh on the scene, detective Mark Lewis and the police department’s psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein, question one of »

James Wan, who scared audiences with "The Conjuring," "Insidious" and "Saw" franchises, is getting "Demonic." Wan is producing the film starring Maria Bello ("A History of Violence," "Third Person") and Frank Grillo ("The Purge: Anarchy"). Dimension Films will release it this winter. Will Canon ("Brotherhood") will direct, with Lee Clay ("Beautiful Boy") co-producing. "Demonic" follows Detective Mark Lewis (Grillo) and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein (Bello) as they interview a survivor of a mysterious massacre where several amateur ghost-hunters died. What really happened? "James Wan is the new master of terror and we are thrilled to be releasing his film this December," said Dimension Films' Erik Lomis in a press release. Wan recently wrapped on the beleaguered "Fast and Furious 7," which will hit screens in 2015. "Demonic" will be in theaters December 12. »

This December is going to be so jam-packed with awards contenders that us critics will probably have trouble finding breathing room. Luckily, there are still a few titles outside of the Oscar crowd that are aiming a little lower. One such flick appears to be Demonic, the horror title that Dimension Films has just slotted for release on December 12th.
There’s been little to no advance buzz about this frightener, and that’s surprising when one considers the talent involved. Based on an original idea by James Wan, the horror helmer behind Saw and Insidious, Demonic stars two-time Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello and The Purge: Anarchy lead Frank Grillo (pictured above). Will Canon (Brotherhood) is sitting behind the camera.

"It’s very much designed to be grounded within the teen experience," said Hendler about the new film:
"'Max Steel' is an origin story following 'Max McGrath' who suddenly begins generating massive energy bursts from his body. Max meets a 'techno-organic' alien named 'Steel' and the two form a symbiotic bond that keeps their individual energies under control..."
"Neither of them can live without the other," said Hendler, "and they drive each other crazy. But when they work together, they can actually be something cool..."
Created internally by Mattel, the "Max Steel" franchise spans multi-platform entertainment, toys and consumer products.

Following the first photos released earlier this month, Entertainment Weekly has debuted even more images from Max Steel, which give us a closer look at the costume worn by star Ben Winchell. Take a look at the photos, along with commentary from director Stewart Hendler.
"'I definitely love trying to build tension. It's fun to take audiences on that ride, so there are a couple of sequences that are fairly dark, that feel pretty gritty. It'll feel authentically scary."
"Max needs this creature to protect him from his own energy and Steele needs that energy to survive. I thought this was a really cool way into this superhero mythology I hadn't seen before. What they presented to me was a really polished, pretty slick kid's cartoon and I was like 'I'm not sure if you sent this to the wrong person. Because if I were to do it, I wanted »
Max Steel started as a Mattel action figure and then it later evolved into an animated series on Disney Xd. Now the property is getting a live-action reboot from director Stewar Hendler ("Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn"). The script was written by Thor: The Dark World' scribe, Christopher Yost. The cast includes: Ben Winchell ("Necessary Roughness") as Max, Ana Villafañe ("Hiding") as Sofia Martinez, Maria Bello ("Coyote Ugly") as Max’s mom Molly McGrath, and Andy Garcia ("Ocean’s 11") as Dr. Miles Edwards. Max Steel is an in-depth “origin” story packed with captivating characters and fast-paced action. The plot chronicles the adventures of Max McGrath and his mother have just moved back to Copper Canyon, the town in which Max’s scientist father died in a mysterious accident shortly after Max was born. As Max adjusts to his new school, things get complicated when his body starts to generate »
Children are the future. So what happens when there are only a few of them left and everyone on Earth is infertile and childless? That’s what Lifetimes’s The Lottery (which premiered Sunday night) hopes to explore.
If the premise sounds vaguely familiar, that’s because the series’ creator is none other than Timothy J. Sexton, the man who co-wrote Children of Men, a dystopic science-fiction film that investigated the same idea – only The Lottery is set a few years earlier, in 2025.

In this age of blockbuster superhero adaptations like Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s refreshing to see a movie in the genre with a little more modest ambitions. Enter Max Steel, an adaptation of the same-named Disney Xd show aimed squarely at the tween/early teen demographic. The flick follows a teen whose extraordinary abilities begin to manifest themselves during puberty. With the help of an alien lifeform, he transforms into a superhero named Max Steel and quickly becomes the world’s last hope against forces of incredible power.
Today, a new set of images and in-depth synopsis for Max Steel have hit the web, and you can check out both below. I’m liking what I’ve seen from this project thus far, and the cast, led by Ben Winchell, Andy Garcia, Maria Bello and Ana Villafañe, »

We have some new photos from Open Road Films' Max Steel for you to check out today thanks to Collider. I have to say I've been impressed with what I've seen from this movie. This is one of the films that could have easily ended up looking terrible, but these images show off something that could prove to be really cool.
The movie is based on the Mattel action figure and animated series on Disney Xd. Director Stewart Hendler wrapped production last month in Wilmington, North Carolina, and we should be getting our first trailer soon, as the movie has a panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
