20 Most Anticipated Horror Films Right Now

27 September 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The horror genre is going through a bit of a lull at the moment. There haven’t been any really strong genre hits this year (certainly nothing up there with The Conjuring’s box-office takings) and companies such as Asylum are content on making a cheap buck with increasingly little imagination. There needs to be some strong films in the next twelve months or horror could fade away from cinemas.

Luckily, there are a lot of directors who, although becoming ‘big fish’, still have a love for the genre. James Wan and Scott Derrickson are still helping produce films for next year even though they’re involved with Fast And Furious 7 and Doctor Strange respectively. On top of that, there is a good influx of low-budget and foreign horrors which could break out into the mainstream.

To that end, here are the 20 Most Anticipated Horror Movies Of The Next Twelve Months… »

"Doctor Strange": Sorcerer Supreme Start Date

22 September 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"The crazy 'acid trip' way of traveling through dimensions and traveling through realms, is something that we think is very, very cool..." said Marvel's Kevin Feige, about the studio's big screen "Doctor Strange" feature, with a production start date now set, targeting a July 8, 2016 release:

The new film will be directed by Scott Derrickson from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, with Joaquin Phoenix in final talks for the lead role. Pre-production is now starting @ the UK's Pinewood-Shepperton with principal photography scheduled for May 2015.

"(Strange) is a classic Marvel origin story, because he’s got one of the best origins ever, and it’s our opportunity to take that left turn into the supernatural. 

"Now what is the definition of ‘supernatural’? It varies...based in physics and based in quantum mechanics...an explanation of how sorcerers do what they do..."

Director Derrickson is no stranger to the 'occult', having previously directed »

Fan Art of Joaquin Phoenix as Doctor Strange

18 September 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It's rumored that Joaquin Phoenix is the top contender for the role of Doctor Strange in Marvel's Scott Derrickson-directed film. I was a little sketchy about Phoenix playing this character, but after seeing this illustration my mind has been changed. He really could look awesome in the role. The piece was created by DeviantArt user AndrewSS7.

We released another piece of fan art a few months ago of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange when he was rumored to be up for the role. »

Marvel Sets 'Doctor Strange' for July 2016 Release Date

17 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Marvel has set a July 8, 2016 release date for the Scott Derrickson-directed Doctor Strange, a date that currently has no competition, though Bourne 5 is one week later and ID Forever Part I and David Yates' Tarzan are one week earlier, though I hardly think Marvel is too concerned. As of now no one has been cast in the lead role, though Joaquin Phoenix appears to have the role if he wants it, and with this new development it would almost seem as if he's finally signed on the dotted line. Phoenix, if you remember, was, at one point, up for the role of Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Has he finally found a comic book character he is willing to playc In the comics, Doctor Strange is a surgeon that suffers a life-changing car accident and eventually heads to the Himalayas, gains psychic powers and saves the day, »

Doctor Strange Set for July 8, 2016; Will Likely Shoot in the U.K.

17 September 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Doctor Strange release date has finally been revealed.  Among Marvel's Phase Three films, we know that Ant-Man is set for July 17, 2015, Captain America 3 will be released on May 6, 2016, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will open on July 28, 2017.  But in between Captain America 3 and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Marvel has two more dates on their schedule: July 8, 2016 and May 5, 2017.  It has now been confirmed that Doctor Strange will be released on July 8, 2016, which isn't too surprising considering a director, Scott Derrickson, is already on board and a "2016" date has been rumored for some time. Hit the jump for more on Doctor Strange. According to Screen Daily, Marvel is in "advanced negotiations" with the U.K.'s Pinewood-Shepperton Studio to shoot the movie in late 2014/early 2015.  I would be surprised if this deal didn't come together since Marvel shot at Shepperton for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, »

Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' Set For July 2016 Release

17 September 2014 4:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Marvel tends not to show their hand until they're ready, but it looks like the puzzle pieces for the studio's long developing "Doctor Strange" are starting to come together. While casting and plot details and all those kinds of things are yet to be revealed, a release date has been slotted for the film. With a bunch of openings on their slate available, Marvel has set July 8, 2016 for the day the world will see "Doctor Strange." Scott Derrickson is directing the movie, and things are moving along fast. The production is already set to head to the UK's Pinewood-Shepperton this fall, and filming will start in May 2015. Meanwhile, the biggest question mark is still whether or not Joaquin Phoenix will take the lead role, but our guess is that it's likely the actor has signed on if this much movement is suddenly happening. So far, there's no other movie slated on that July 2016 weekend, »

17 September 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Marvel in advanced negotiations to send superhero film to Pinewood-Shepperton for mid-2015 shoot.

Marvel Studios is in advanced negotiations to shoot upcoming superhero film Doctor Strange at Pinewood-Shepperton, ScreenDaily understands.

Preparations on the ground are already in motion with crew being assembled for a move into Shepperton in late 2014/early 2015.

A tentative shoot date has been mooted for May 2015 with Marvel having reportedly dated the film’s release for July 8, 2016.

Scott Derrickson is due to direct the feature about the former neurosurgeon who serves as the Sorcerer Supreme - the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats.

The character, who made his first appearance in the Marvel Universe more than 50 years ago, was first created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. A number of studios have tried to get a feature about him off the ground since the 1990s.

Doctor Strange has been described as “the mightiest magician in the cosmos” and “the most »

A couple of really blurry images have appeared on Instagram from Blumhouse Productions and eOne’s Sinister 2, the sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit horror movie Sinister. Barry Lee Caldwell, script supervisor on the film, leaked out the two photos from the set in Chicago.

Joaquin Phoenix Hesitant About Playing Doctor Strange

2 September 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Joaquin Phoenix is playing hard to get, or maybe he's just being careful about signing on to a mega-blockbuster like Doctor Strange. You be the judge. Last week it was reported that the talented actor was in final negotiations to star in Marvel's Doctor Strange, but it looks like those reports might've been a bit premature.

Phoenix has been in-talks with Marvel for some time now. The studio hoped to announce him as Doctor Strange during their Comic-Con panel, but since they couldn't close a deal, that didn't end up happening. Today, the two are still having some issues.

According to BadAssDigest, Phoenix just doesn't know if he'll able to handle such a big project. Saying yes to Doctor Strange isn't all rainbows and butterflies. This is a big time commitment, that also includes 'pre-viz and fight-ciz and green screen and massive reshoots.'

“The problems that have kept the deal from closing remain, »

'Black Panther' Movie Still in Development Says Stan Lee

2 September 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With part of Marvel Phase Three and all of Marvel Phase Four unannounced, aside from a slew of mysterious release dates that span until 2019, many fans are wondering which projects will be slotted into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of the few projects that hasn't made it out of the development stage yet is Black Panther, which we reported last month is wanted by the fans more than Iron Man 4.

During an appearance at Fan Expo Canada over the weekend, Marvel legend Stan Lee confirmed that Marvel is still working on a Black Panther movie, while also hinting that the studio is working on a stand-alone movie for Scarlett Johansson's character Black Widow.

"We haven't made a Black Widow movie but she's been in some of our movies, and she will be featured more prominently as we move forward. And the chances are she will have her own movie »

Is Joaquin Phoenix Reluctant To Sign On For Doctor Strange?

1 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joaquin Phoenix has been circling the title role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange for a while now, and he was supposedly nearing a deal just before San Diego Comic-Con in July. Late last week, we heard that after some long talks with the studio, the three-time Academy Award nominee was in final negotiations for the role… but a new report suggests that he may be getting cold feet.

Not only is Phoenix reluctant to sign one of those famous multi-film Marvel contracts, but he’s supposedly uncomfortable with the way big-budget blockbusters like this are made and may in fact back out of his talks altogether.

The report comes from Badass Digest’s Devin Faraci, whose sources tell him that Collider’s report about the final negotiations last week may have been premature. Marvel wanted to get Phoenix to sign on for the role in time to announce it at Comic-Con, »

Joaquin Phoenix Remains Hesitant to Join 'Doctor Strange'

1 September 2014 8:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we reported that actor Joaquin Phoenix was in negotiations with Marvel Studios to play the title role in Doctor Strange, with a new report emerging this week that the actor is close to finalizing his deal. While he still hasn't signed on the dotted line yet, Badass Digest has a new report about why the negotiations are taking so long.

When we spoke to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige last month, he revealed that they are "close" to casting Doctor Strange, but he also cautioned that an announcement was not "imminent." This new report reveals that Marvel was hoping to bring Joaquin Phoenix onto the Comic-Con stage to announce his casting, but the deal wasn't cemented at the time. While he remains in negotiations, this new report reveals that the actor hasn't signed on yet simply because he isn't sure if he can work in the superhero genre. »
