'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' First Look: Do we even care anymore?

3 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »

The surge in remakes, and their collateral damage

25 June 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With everything from The Craft to Kindergarten Cop getting some kind of remake right now, what's the real damage that's being done?

It might just be us, but the number of remake announcements we've seen in 2015 seems to be on the increase. In recent weeks alone we've had the cheery news that new takes on Big Trouble In Little China, Sister Act, The Craft and Kindergarten Cop are getting new takes of various sizes. And the response is both understandable and predictable: has Hollywood run out of ideas?

Well, probably. And yet I'd argue it's not that simple. That, in part, the dependency on remakes and sequels is a little bit down to us, but even more so, down to the fact that fewer big movies are being made, and studios want as much on their side when they're committing a nine figure spend to a film.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Hit Theaters on February 19th, 2016

31 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like the living dead that roam the 19th-century English countryside of its story, the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has refused to die, shambling on through multiple director and lead actor changes over the past several years to finally begin filming last September. Now we know when to expect to see the living dead of Meryton, as an official release date for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has now been set for early next year.

According to Box Office Mojo, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19th, 2016, from Sony/Screen Gems.

In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

Disney Updates Its Release Schedule To Include Pete’s Dragon And Ghost In The Shell

14 January 2015 1:35 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following in the footsteps of every major movie studio and setting release dates for two and three years into the future, Walt Disney Pictures has recently updated its release schedule to include Pete’s Dragon and Ghost in the Shell alongside some minor adjustments to the release dates for some of its other major films.

First up is Pete’s Dragon, which is about to head into production with a cast that includes Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard. It will open August 12, 2016, putting it opposite Universal’s Dirty Grandpa and Legendary’s Spectral. Sounds like August 2016 will bring something for the entire family.

Ghost in the Shell will not see the light of day until April 14, 2017, which is hardly surprising given that Scarlett Johansson has only just signed on to lead the film. Right now it remains the only film in that spot in April, but it’s still »

Jon Favreau's Jungle Book Pushed Back Six Months

13 January 2015 4:03 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Joining Universal and 20th Century Fox in their recent games of release date musical chairs, Disney have now announced some shifting weekends of their own. Jon Favreau's Jungle Book has been pushed back to 2016, while Craig Gillespie's Chris Pine-starring The Finest Hours will arrive sooner than we thought. The new Pete's Dragon has nabbed its opening day too. And with the sudden flurry of activity around DreamWorks' Ghost In The Shell remake, there's now also confirmation of exactly when we can expect to see Scarlett Johansson don her cyber-suit.Favreau's live-action-and-cgi take on Rudyard Kipling and Mowgli will now grace cinema screens on April 15, 2016, six months later than originally planned. There's been no official reason given for this, but it's clearly a project where a long post-production was always going to be a necessity. It seems likely that it's a move to get those animal FX looking as seamless as possible. »
