Fantastic Four Release Date Pushed to August 7, 2015; Assassin’S Creed Pulled from Schedule

18 September 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox is pushing its Fantastic Four reboot release date back a couple of months.  Directed by Josh Trank (Chronicle), the film was originally scheduled to hit theaters on June 16, 2015, but Fox has now opted to move the pic to August 7, 2015.  While August doesn’t necessarily seem like better real estate than June for the summer movie season, Disney had massive success in slating Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy for the beginning of August this year, which benefitted from the dearth of quality films throughout the rest of the month.  The Fantastic Four will now square off against the all-ages horror comedy Goosebumps with Jack Black, but what of Fox’s other film that was slated for release on August 7th?  Well the studio has now pulled Assassin’s Creed from the schedule entirely, giving it a “Tbd” release date. Hit the jump for more, including a release »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

It's Official: James Corden Will Replace Craig Ferguson as 'Late Late Show' Host in 2015

8 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After word leaked online last month that British comedian and actor James Corden was CBS's pick to replace outgoing "The Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson, the network made the news official Monday.

CBS announced that Corden would take over for Ferguson after the host steps down at the end of this year, though the network offered no concrete details on where the show would be filmed (New York or Los Angeles) or exactly what date it would debut (currently slated for sometime in 2015). In a statement announcing the hire, CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler praised the 36-year-old Corden's wealth of talents.

"James Corden is a rare entertainment force who combines irresistible charm, warmth and originality with a diverse range of creative instincts and performance talent," Tassler said. "He is the ultimate multi-hyphenate - a writer, creator and performer who is loved and respected in every medium he touches, including theater, »

10 Times WCW Purposefully Lied To The Fans

6 September 2014 4:35 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

As silly as it may sound in a sport that’s built upon a lie, it’s crucial for any wrestling company to have the trust of its fans in order to succeed. It’s like with any other business — customers want to feel assured that they’re getting their money’s worth. That’s why nobody goes to see Jack Black movies anymore.

Truth be told, the murky waters in which pro wrestling finds itself regarding what’s real and what’s not make navigation a bit more difficult — after all, where do you draw the line when everyone knows Undertaker and Kane aren’t really brothers, Vince McMahon doesn’t really want to fire Steve Austin, and Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels don’t really hate each other? Wait…

There are a few guidelines that can offer some insight. First of all, it’s better not »

It's a very advanced party time with some very advanced party friends!” The show’s trailer calls it “Sesame Street for the digital generation,” which is exactly what it looks like it’ll be.

'Goosebumps' writer R.L. Stine on fear: 'I've never experienced it'

30 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

R.L. Stine doesn’t exactly sympathize with victims in horror movies. “When I go to a movie or something, and the shark jumps up on the screen and eats the girl, I’m the one in the theater who’s laughing,” the Goosebumps author tells EW. “Horror always makes me laugh.”

Something else that makes Stine laugh? Mostly Ghostly: Meet My Ghoulfriend, a film based on Stine’s Mostly Ghostly book series that coms to DVD Sept. 2. In the movie, Max (Ryan Ochoa) plays a teenage boy who’s trying to impress his crush (Bella Thorne) but faces an otherwordly obstacle: The Berserker Ghoul, »

Community's Dan Harmon hits the road in Harmontown documentary teaser

29 August 2014 7:57 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The new trailer for the documentary Harmontown takes viewers on the road with Community's Dan Harmon.

This doc chronicles Harmon bringing his Los Angeles-based podcast on a live tour several months after he was famously fired from Community in 2012.

Filmmaker Neil Berkeley followed Harmon, his girlfriend Erin McGathy, the show's 'comptroller' Jeff Davis and resident Dungeons & Dragons expert Spencer Crittenden on a tour of the Us.

Harmon was subsequently re-hired as the showrunner of Community after finishing the live tour, and will oversee the programme's move to Yahoo Screen for season six.

Harmontown contains interviews about Harmon's triumphs and eccentricities from friends and co-workers including Sarah Silverman, Joel McHale, Jack Black and Gillian Jacobs.

The documentary – which was screened at the SXSW Film Festival – will receive a limited theatrical release and debut on VOD on October 3. »

'Harmontown' trailer shows good, bad, nerdy parts of Dan Harmon's life

29 August 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

For many fans of Community, the show seems incomplete without its creator, Dan Harmon. The backlash to season four, before which Harmon was fired, is just one of many examples of that sentiment. But, if anything, Harmon’s one-season departure from the sitcom—he’s since been hired back—created a groundswell of support and devotion for Harmon.

The writer used his hiatus to tour the country with his podcast, and filmmaker Neil Berkeley recorded everything along the way. Harmontown the podcast became Harmontown the movie, and a new trailer gives Harmenians, the nickname for Harmon’s devotees, a taste »

Harmontown Gets Its First Trailer

29 August 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dan Harmon wants to be the guy that makes people happy – so says the man himself in the first trailer for Neil Berkeley’s documentary Harmontown. It is sad to think that, despite having created one of the best comedy series in recent memory – Community – Harmon is probably best known for his spectacular firing from said show, following mounting conflict between him and cast member Chevy Chase. What does the man who wants to make people happy do to heal such a damaging wound? He takes his popular podcast on tour, of course – using the love of his dedicated fanbase as a revitalizing salve.

On the face of it, it sounds incredibly narcissistic, egotistical, and perhaps even desperate. In reality though, with this trailer, it is a beautiful thing to watch. Harmon is not only a refreshingly honest voice in relation to Hollywood as a whole, but also in relation to the human race, »

Harmontown Trailer: Go on the Road With the Genius Behind Community and Rick And Morty

28 August 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I have a love/hate relationship with Community.  At its best, the show transcends merely being funny and offers truly unique insight into the types characters that other programs either reduce into caricature or marginalize completely.  At its worst (not counting the apparently abysmal Season 4), it's self-indulgent and overly reliant on meta in-jokes concerning its own universe.  Thankfully, it's usually great.  And if you've seen Rick and Morty you know that that show in particular can be astoundingly good.  They both come from the mind of Dan Harmon, which isn't always a pleasant place to be as evidenced by this trailer to Harmontown. The film focusses on Harmon's podcast/comedy tour last year and features interviews with the likes of Sarah Silverman, Jack Black, Ben Stiller, the cast of Community and more.  It was written and directed by Neil Berkeley the Orchard will be releasing it in theaters and VOD on October 3rd. »
