Disney Dates ‘Ghost In The Shell’, Moves ‘Jungle Book’ Back 6 Months

13 January 2015 2:24 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Disney has announced release dates for a pair of pics and a slot swap for two others. The DreamWorks-produced Ghost In The Shell, which last week landed Scarlett Johansson as its lead, will hit theaters April 14, 2017. The studio also set the 3D remake of its 1977 film Pete’s Dragon for August 12, 2016.

Meanwhile, Disney has pushed the release of its Jon Favreau-helmed redo of The Jungle Book out of 2015. The 3D pic with an all-star voice cast including Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba and Johansson had been set for October 9 but now will open April 15, 2016. It trades dates with The Finest Hours, the Chris Pine-Casey Affleck-Eric Bana ocean-rescue tale, which now will arrive October 9.

The moves put the 3D Ghost In The Shell into an as-yet-unoccupied slot and pits Pete’s Dragon against the Lionsgate comedy Bad Grandpa, Sony’s raunchy toon Sausage Party and Universal’s thriller Spectral. »

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

2015 Top 100 Foreign Titles: #85. Jim Sheridan’s The Secret Scripture

5 January 2015 1:45 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Secret Scripture

Director: Jim Sheridan// Writers: Johnny Ferguson, Jim Sheridan

In light of his recent titles, it’s hard to forget that Jim Sheridan started out with My Left Foot back in 1989, and went on to work with Daniel Day-Lewis in two more superb roles. In 2004, Sheridan saw a resurgence with the success of In America, but a string of intriguing choices afterwards all seemed to fail, including the 50 cent headlined Get Rich or Die Tryin’,  an unwise remake of Susanne Bier’s Brothers, and a supernatural thriller that was subjected to studio interference, Dream House. We’re thinking The Secret Scripture, based on the novel by Sebastian Barry and set to film in Ireland, will be a comeback worth anticipating, as it features a strong cast led by Rooney Mara. The film’s focus is a woman and her diary during an extended stay at a mental hospital. »

What the movies teach us about possession

3 January 2015 4:09 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Deliver Us From Evil lands on disc in the UK, we look back at key lessons the movies teach us about possession...

The idea of demonic possession goes back thousands of years, to before we had film. Most religions carry their own interpretation of what it means for a person to be 'possessed' by a demon or a spirit and it's a complicated, arcane subject shrouded in mystery and ritual.

The Sumerians, thousands of years before Christ, believed all diseases were caused by 'sickness demons' and had their sorcerers attempt early exorcisms as cures. The Quran talks extensively of Jinn (demons) that can drive people to insanity and may only be expelled via worship. In the Bible, Satan and his demons are very much at large using human beings as vessels for devilish deeds. Jesus casts a whole bunch of them out before he's accused of being demon-possessed himself »

Chris Brown’s Best of 2014

1 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

In remembrance of 2014, we will be highlighting each of our contributor’s “Best of 2014″ on an individual basis. This isn’t limited to movies & television either. No, no, this bleeds over into memorabilia, music and so much more. Without further ado…

Deliver Us from Evil

Deliver Us from Evil” earns a spot on my list because it wasn’t “The Conjuring” and I still haven’t seen “The Babadook.” I know, shame, but there you have it. This movie, honestly, is here because Eric Bana is an excellent actor and, along with Joel McHale, the generic plotline here is knocked out of the park. Why? Because good actors elevate mediocre scripts, and as far as scripts go, this one isn’t far above the median line, but it has more than just great performances boosting its bottom line. The movie is ugly (tone, color, atmosphere) from the start. We don »

‘Deliver Us From Evil’ DVD Review

1 January 2015 3:28 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Eric Bana, Joel McHale, Édgar Ramírez, Olivia MunnChris Coy, Dorian Missick, Sean Harris, Mike Houston, Lulu Wilson | Written by Scott Derrickson, Paul Harris Boardman | Directed by Scott Derrickson

Sometimes it can be easy to dismiss a horror film simply based on the premise. By now we have seen nearly every type or person and inanimate object possessed by some sort of demon or demonic presence. However, all genres are just as guilty of sticking with stereotypical tropes. The key is how those tropes are executed. Director Scott Derrickson’s latest film Deliver Us From Evil  is far from groundbreaking, but it at least subverts expectations enough to create something worth watching.

In many ways Deliver Us From Evil  is a crime drama with a few occasional supernatural elements. Eric Bana plays Sarchie, a veteran police officer with a special talent for solving disturbing crimes. His partner, played by »
