14 April 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Four Navy SEALs on a covert mission to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda operative face an impossible, moral decision in Lone Survivor, the intense, action-packed story of heroism, courage and survival, coming to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, including Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD with UltraViolet™ and On Demand on June 3, 2014, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Lone Survivor will also be available on Digital HD two weeks earlier on May 20, 2014.

Based on Marcus Luttrell’s The New York Times bestselling memoir, Director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) explores the unbreakable bond of brotherhood in a film that Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers praised as “a powerhouse film.” Lone Survivor tells the incredible tale of Operation Red Wings, a mission about four Navy SEALs ambushed by the enemy deep in the mountains of Afghanistan. As the soldiers are confronted by unthinkable odds they must find reserves of strength and resilience in order to fight to the finish. »

Guy Ritchie has signed on for a new take on the Arthurian legend, with Variety revealing that the Sherlock Holmes director will link up with Warner Bros. once again for King Arthur, which is set for release on July 22nd, 2016.

King Arthur has been written by Joby Harold (Awake), who will also produce alongside Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell. No plot details have been released, although it has been rumoured previously that WB was looking at the property as a potential franchise, stretching as far a six films.

It’s been ten years since we’ve seen a Hollywood take on the King Arthur story, with Clive Owen starring as the mythical British king in Disney’s 2004 feature from Jerry Bruckheimer.

Guy Ritchie's King Arthur Coming In 2016

11 April 2014 2:41 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Variety, Warner Bros.King Arthur is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2016. Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes, Swept Away) will direct, with Joby Harold (Awake, Edge Of Tomorrow) on script duty. It was rumored that WB were looking at Ritchie to bring a six-film take on the classic tale to the screen, but Variety make no mention of that in their report. There have been various movies, comics and tv shows based around Arthurian legend over the years, including the underrated Camelot and the mediocre Disney produced flick with Clive Owen in the title role. The most successful take was arguably John Boorman's Excalibur back in 1981. Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell will produce, no cast is in place yet. »

Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur' Gets Summer 2016 Release Date

10 April 2014 6:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. has handed out a July 22, 2016 release date for director Guy Ritchie's King Arthur project. As of now, no other movies have been slated for that date, but it comes right between two 20th Century Fox movies, Ice Age 5 (July 15, 2016) and Planet of the Apes 3 (July 29, 2016).

Back in January, we reported that Guy Ritchie signed on to direct this fantasy re-telling of the King Arthur legend, which will be the first in a proposed six-movie franchise. Joby Harold (Edge of Tomorrow) wrote the script for this first movie, although no plot details were revealed.

The director was actually attached to this project back in 2010, when John Hodge was attached to write the script, but it fell apart when the studio focused its efforts on a similar project, Arthur & Lancelot, which has since been shelved.

Guy Ritchie and Joby Harold are also producing alongside Lionel Wigram, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell. »

Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur’ Set for July 2016 Release

10 April 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “King Arthur” is set to hit theaters on July 22, 2016, becoming the first title to land on that date.

There has been recent speculation that WB will move its still-untitled Batman-Superman project back from May 6, 2016, to the July 22 date to avoid going up against Marvel-Disney’s “Captain America 3.” But domestic distribution topper Dan Fellman recently said that there were no plans to move.

The yet-to-be-filmed “King Arthur” will be directed by Guy Ritchie from Joby Harold’s screenplay. Harold, Akiva Goldsman and Tory Tunnell will produce.

Plot details are under wraps and no cast has been set.

Disney released a “King Arthur” movie in 2004 with Clive Owen in the title role and Jerry Bruckheimer producing. The film grossed $203 million worldwide.

'The Toxic Avenger' Remake Moves Forward Without Arnold Schwarzenegger | Exclusive

14 March 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

68-year-old Lloyd Kaufman shows no signs of slowing down, and he's currently making some of the best movies of his career. Next week, the first part of his epic opus Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 1 will finally be released on Blu-ray. And after touring it around the world, he is going to jump right into making the long-awaited sequel Toxic Twins: The Toxic Avenger V. But that might make you wonder, 'What ever happened to The Toxic Avenger remake that was supposed to star Arnold Schwarzenegger?'

Well, its still on its way, though action icon Arnie dropped out last year after reportedly seeing the original upon which it was based. It was never revealed whom he was playing. But we did catch up with the always energetic Lloyd Kaufman, who gave us an update on the reboot.

The Lego Movie towers over an all-animation top three

26 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A second weekend adds to The Lego Movie's impressive tally as it retains its top slot above Mr Peabody & Sherman and Disney's Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy

The Lego Movie – review

• Mr Peabody & Sherman – review

• More on the UK box office

The winner

Our compact half-term school holidays always concentrate the minds of UK families, offering rich potential for bonanza box-office over a highly compressed time period. And so it has proved with the half-term just ended: from Friday 14 February to Sunday 23 February, The Lego Movie has taken an astonishing £19.72m in just 10 days of play, an average of nearly £2m per day. Add in the previews from the previous weekend, and the film's tally to date rises to a stonking £21.88m. That's more than the lifetime totals of the two lowest-grossing Pixar films – Cars and Cars 2 – and is also ahead of both Kung Fu Panda pictures from DreamWorks Animation. »

A New York Winter's Tale Review

22 February 2014 1:48 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A prolific screenwriter, responsible for the scripts for The Client, A Time to Kill, A Beautiful Mind, and The Da Vinci Code, Akiva Goldsman makes his directorial debut with A New York Winter's Tale, based on the acclaimed novel, Winter's Tale (the title for the movie in America), by Mark Helprin. A romantic fantasy spanning centuries, the story concerns Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), a burglar in 1900's New York who, on the run from demonic gangster Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe), falls for Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay). When tragedy strikes, Peter is thrust forward to present day, minus his memories, but knowing he has something important to fulfill. On paper, Winter's Tale is a modern day fairy tale that deserves every piece of praise heaped upon it. Sadly, this doesn't translate to the big screen, with A New York Winter's Tale falling at the first hurdle. The movie's heart is in the right place, »

Stranger By The Lake, Only Lovers Left Alive, Nymphomaniac: this week's new films

22 February 2014 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Stranger By The Lake | Only Lovers Left Alive | Nymphomaniac | A New York Winter's Tale | A World Not Ours | Stalingrad | The Godfather: Part II | Highway

Stranger By The Lake (18)

(Alain Guiraudie, 2013, Fra) Pierre Deladonchamps, Christophe Paou, Patrick D'Assumçao, Jérôme Chapatte. 100 mins

Sex and death take a synchronised swim in this bold thriller, shot at a single lakeside location. It's a popular cruising spot, and the rituals of its regular (and regularly naked) male visitors are observed with a combination of frankness, lyricism and mischievous satire. But a more mysterious tone takes hold when newcomer Franck sees his Selleck-moustachio'd crush commit a terrible crime. The riptide of desire drags him into a dangerous game.

Only Lovers Left Alive (15)

(Jim Jarmusch, 2013, UK/Ger/Fra/Cyp/Us) Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska. 123 mins

Making Twilight look like Sesame Street, Jarmusch gives us the coolest vampires imaginable – too cool to even do much vampire stuff. »

Film Review: 'A New York Winter's Tale'

21 February 2014 8:34 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★☆☆☆☆ Burdened by a plot as saccharine as a Nicholas Sparks novel unceremoniously mashed with all the very worst clichés of teen movie fantasy (looking at you Mortal Instruments), Akiva Goldsman offers his tiresome and bizarre time travel romance A New York Winter's Tale (2014). Opening to twinkly, glassy-eyed narration, the film's tragic heroine Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay) informs us of how all the world is connected and that the battle for good and evil is not fought on a grand stage but through the individual actions of people. Enter Colin Farrell as Irish orphan turned master thief Peter Lake, dwelling in 19th century Manhattan.

A New York Winter’s Tale Review

21 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Akiva Goldsman’s screenwriting résumé makes for curious reading. On the one hand, here we have someone who penned the Oscar-winning screenplay for A Beautiful Mind; on the flipside, he also helped write 1997’s Batman & Robin, widely regarded (with good reason) as one of the worst superhero films ever made. For his latest project – an adaptation of Mark Helprin’s beloved novel A New York Winter’s Tale – Goldsman takes on directorial duties for the first time in addition to writing and producing, and there’s little doubt as to which column this film resides.

The nonsensical narrative revolves around Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), an orphaned thief in 19th century New York who is on the run from his demonic mentor Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe). Seemingly cornered by Soames’ gang, Peter escapes with the assistance of a magical flying white horse (which he promptly dubs ‘Horse’). On his way out of town, »

Colin Farrell: 'A New York Winter's Tale is about the essence of love'

21 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Akiva Goldsman's magical realist romance A New York Winter's Tale stars Colin Farrell as an orphaned thief with a heart of gold, and Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay as an ailing young woman who turns out to be his soulmate.

Digital Spy sat down with Farrell and Findlay to discuss the challenge of portraying a life-altering romance with a comparatively short amount of screen time together.

"The sentimentality, the thing that I would naturally resist, was the thing that drew me in," Farrell said.

"The fact that the film was devoid of any cynicism. It was an unabashedly romantic look at the impermanence of life but the permanence of love."

Findlay discussed her approach to portraying Beverly's consumption, explaining that she wanted to strike a balance between realism and the film's fairy tale tone.

Director and writer Goldsman also discussed Farrell's "typecasting" as a roguish romantic.
