Chu and the cast members you see in the photo are Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Daniel Radcliffe and Michael Caine.

In response, The Weinstein Company has now slotted in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama "Southpaw" for that July 31st release date. Coming off his emaciated look in "Nightcrawler," Jake Gyllenhaal buffed up for "Southpaw" which deals with a middleweight boxing champion who struggles after he experiences a personal tragedy.
The move offers something one normally doesn't get in the middle of summer - a serious, dramatic piece targeting adults. A welcome move though in some quarters.

Paramount Pictures has pushed its spy comedy Grimsby from its originally-slated July 31, 2015 release date to February 26, 2016. The spy comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen was set to go up against Warner Bros. Point Break remake, Focus Features' Selfless and The Weinstein Company's Southpaw on July 31, 2015. Now it will face Paramount's Ben-Hur remake next winter.
Grimsby centers on a British secret agent (Mark Strong) who is forced to go into hiding in his hometown with his dim-witted soccer hooligan brother (Sacha Baron Cohen). Penélope Cruz also stars as a benevolent corporate leader who is hiding a secret. Annabelle Wallis, Rebel Wilson, David Harewood, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Johnny Vegas and Isla Fisher round out the supporting cast.
After a surprise turnover at the box office back in 2013, the Four Horsemen are set to return for another bout of might and magic with the release of Now You See Me: The Second Act, and director Jon. M Chu recently showcased our very first look at the ensemble cast for the upcoming sequel.
With Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Jesse Eisenberg and Lizzy Caplan — in lieu of Isla Fisher — on board as the aforementioned tricksters, the film will also herald the return of Mark Ruffalo and Michael Caine, who will be joined by newcomer Daniel Radcliffe who is set to play his son, Walter Tressler. As for story, The Second Act will pick up around one year after the events of the original film, pitting the Horsemen against a new threat as they make a move to pull of their “most dangerous heist yet.”
Not exactly reinventing the wheel, mind you. »

Where are they all off to? See, this series is all about mysteries. They're throwing them at us already.And as a side point, can we take Eisenberg's buzz-cut as an indication that he's recently been thoroughly balded for his outing as Lex Luthor in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice? »
