Gerard Butler’s ‘Geostorm’ Pushed Back to 2017

14 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. has pushed Gerard Butler’s drama “Geostorm” back three months to Jan. 13, 2017.

The studio originally dated the film for Oct. 21, 2016. “Geostorm” is the feature directorial debut of Dean Devlin, who teamed with Roland Emmerich to produce 1996’s “Independence Day.”

Devlin’s Electric Entertainment is producing “Geostorm” with Skydance Productions. Producers are Devlin, Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Electric Entertainment’s Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan.

Warner Bros. picked up the project after Skydance developed it. Devlin also wrote “Geostorm,” which centers on a satellite designer who tries to prevent disaster when the world’s climate control satellites fail to function.

The Jan. 13, 2017, date already has four titles — Sony’s “the Dark Tower,” MGM-Sony’s “The Magnificent Seven,” Fox’s “Boss Baby” and Lionsgate’s “Power Rangers.”

Geostorm Flies To 2017

18 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If you were looking forward to seeing Gerard Butler punching a hurricane helping to stop a weatherpocalypse in Geostorm… Just wait longer. The film has been pushed from a planned October 2016 release to a January 2017 slot in the Us.Butler plays a charming but stubborn satellite designer called in to help when the orbiting devices that control the Earth’s weather start to go haywire, leading to fears that the worst storm humanity has ever known could soon befall us all. Jim Sturgess, meanwhile, is Butler’s estranged brother, with whom he’ll have to work if he’s to stop the meteorological meltdown.No reason has been given for the shift, though there’s always a chance that disaster movie specialist Dean Devlin – here making his film directorial debut – asked for more time to finish what is probably a big effects job and potentially to move the pic into a more favourable slot. »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Fathers And Daughters' With Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, And Aaron Paul

6 August 2015 6:57 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After having a brief bromance with Will Smith, working with the actor on "The Pursuit Of Happyness" and "Seven Pounds," Italian filmmaker Gabriele Muccino hasn't quite hit the same heights since in Hollywood. His last effort was the Gerard Butler effort "Playing For Keeps" and now comes "Fathers And Daughters" which has some decent names attached, but as this first international trailer reveals, maybe not the most promising results. Starring Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, and Aaron Paul, with a Black List approved script by Brad Desch, this is time-jumping tale about the relationship between a widower novelist and his daughter, with the story told through her eyes, in a narrative that spans decades. Here's the official synopsis:  Jake Davis, a Pulitzer-winning novelist, finds himself fighting against the world when a fatal car accident leaves him to raise his 5-year-old daughter, Katie, all on his own.

Relativity Media Files Bankruptcy; Film and TV Units for Sale

30 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Media — the digital-age entertainment company that claimed clever financing and data analysis could help it unlock the secret to box office riches — filed for bankruptcy protection Thursday against a swarm of disgruntled investors and other creditors. The 11-year-old company that founder Ryan Kavanaugh had styled as a “next-generation global media company” will be sold at auction, a statement from the company said.

The upcoming sale will center on the enterprise’s film and television units. Left outside of the insolvency action are Relativity Sports; Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution, a joint venture with the European film operator; and Relativity Education. All those units will continue on as independent concerns. The company’s fashion operation, M3/Relativity, was shut down this week and its employees laid off Wednesday as part of a pinkslipping of 75 employees.

Kavanaugh and his board proposed the immediate auction of  the company, which stated liabilities of up to $1 billion, »

Overhauled Wii U Launch Title ZombiU Coming To PS4, Xbox One And PC Next Month

30 July 2015 10:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

London has fallen, and Gerard Butler is nowhere to be seen. In finally putting the rumors to bed, Ubisoft has formally confirmed Zombi for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, an upgraded version of the once-Wii U exclusive. It’ll shuffle onto these platforms as a digital-only release on August 18.

Given that the zombie-slaying first-person title was designed with the console’s GamePad in mind, its transition to current-gen consoles and PC has produced a series of gameplay tweaks. From a widened field of view to the overhauled mini-map, the publisher took to its official blog to detail these improvements in question.

We maintain a minimal Hud as much as possible. It disappears when not required, giving the game a very lonely feeling. If you have surround sound, the awesome sound mix from the original still stands and greatly helps immersion. As much as possible, we’ve tried to keep those key elements. »

Relativity in Ruins: Is it Too Late for Ryan Kavanaugh to Save His Studio?

28 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood’s latest evangelist blew into town without a film degree or a single production credit, but armed with abundant smarts, a knack for salesmanship and buckets of charm. Even Ryan Kavanaugh’s shock of red hair assured he got noticed in any room he entered.

Eleven years later, Relativity Media’s CEO stands on the brink of an inglorious retreat. His Beverly Hills-based company appears on the verge of bankruptcy, a key lender is calling him a “con man” and suing for fraud, and other creditors are pushing for the 40-year-old entrepreneur to be shown the door. While Kavanaugh scrambles to find a savior, the company’s 350 employees are preparing for the worst, with a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing expected as early as this week.

Kavanaugh’s would-be Studio of the Future never fulfilled its brash leader’s promise: to harness clever financing and computer modeling to unlock the formula for winning films. »

London Has Fallen attacked for 'insensitivity' by 7/7 victims' trust

2 July 2015 1:32 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Twitter users also question timing of first look at disaster movie sequel days before the 10th anniversary of terrorist attack and in the wake of massacre in Tunisia

The chairman of an organisation set up to honour the memories of the victims of the 7/7 terrorist strike on London has labelled a new trailer for the Hollywood disaster movie London Has Fallen “extremely insensitive”.

Babak Najafi’s film, a big budget sequel to 2013 action thriller Olympus Has Fallen, stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman in the story of an attack on the capital. Chair of the 7/7 Memorial Trust, Philip Nelson, said the timing of the trailer’s release was wrong just a few days before the 10th anniversary of Britain’s worst terrorist strike of recent times.

London Has Fallen Teaser: Get Ready for Gerard Butler and Explosions

Remember Olympus Has Fallen? Okay, well, now bad things are happening in London. This is what it's going to look like: explosions, Gerard Butler, more explosions, more Gerard Butler, maybe a little Morgan Freeman, more explosions, and then a creepy, Avengers-ified version of "London Bridge." Good news: Everything looks sufficiently cool and badass. (Bad news: The timing of this teaser was neither cool nor badass.) You'll be able to catch all the Butler action early next year. »

'London Has Fallen' Trailer: How Can the Same Thing Happen to the Same Guys Twice?

1 July 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Oh, man, I can't f--king believe this. Another basement, another elevator. How can the same s--t happen to the same guy twice?" There's a great moment in Die Hard 2 when John McClane takes a second to acknowledge that it's really pretty ridiculous that he's going through yet another hostage scenario. And since the surprise 2013 hit Olympus Has Fallen was basically Die Hard in the White House, we're kind of hoping that Gerard Butler's character has a similar moment of self-awareness in next year's sequel, London Has Fallen. If he does, they've kept it out of the first teaser trailer for the movie, which oddly never truly shows off returning stars Butler and Aaron Eckhart. However it does show that the Potus and his new Secret Service...
