"Inferno" Delayed Nearly A Year

9 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Originally slated to open opposite "Star Wars: Episode VII," Sony is pushing the release date of its next Dan Brown novel adaptation right back.

"Inferno," which will be the third film to star Tom Hanks as Professor Robert Langdon, was to open December 18th 2015. Instead, it has been delayed almost a full year and will bow on October 14th 2016.

Ron Howard returns as director on the project which sees Langdon rushing around the likes of Florence, Venice and Istanbul to stop a madman from releasing a global pandemic tied to the famed poem "Dante's Inferno".

David Koepp is penning the script. The two previous Langdon films, "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons," have grossed more than $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office.

'Black Sea' trailer promises Jude Law, U-boats, and Nazi gold

2 October 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Could January 2015 be the best January ever? January is traditionally the dump month, when last minute Oscar hopefuls gain steam and studios fill multiplex screens with movies they'd prefer not to have on their permanent records. But that's all changing thanks to an overloaded release schedule. Today, if a studio has a good movie, it makes more sense to put it out when someone has time to actually see it then stack on top of industry-approved seasonal dates. A radical practice. Take "Black Sea," a submarine thriller starring Jude Law. Based on the first trailer, it's a claustrophobic ticking clock drama with a little bit of pulp ("How much Nazi gold is in that sub?" "$182 million!") and a lotta bit of Scottish accents. It's not bombastic enough to go toe-to-toe with the "Avengers 2," nor does it have the inherent prestige factor to duke it out with Harvey Weinstein during the October-through-December window. »

New Mortdecai Character Posters Arrive

2 October 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Preposterous hamminess, ahoy! Yes, it’s Mortdecai, the decade’s cult classic to-be, landing with four new, moustachioed character posters. If you ever wondered what Gwyneth Paltrow looks like with a moustache – and, frankly, who hasn’t? – just hover your cursor over the strange-looking man with the blond hair below and click. With Johnny Depp in the title role and adapted from Kyril Bonfiglioli’s The Mortdecai Trilogy, the comedy-thriller looks like a goofy but goodhearted caper that shares some DNA with Charade, The Thin Man and Harry Enfield’s Playboys. Depp’s titular art dealer is thrown into a deadly world of raging Russians, lethal terrorists and MI5 agents, with only his wife (Paltrow) and a vast reserve of bonhomie to fall back on. Oh, and his manservant (Paul Bettany).Mortdecai is directed by Jurassic Park screenwriter director David Koepp, who most recently oversaw bike courier actioner Premium Rush. »

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

These Four Exclusive 'Mortdecai' Posters Feature Must-See Mustaches

1 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The last time writer/director David Koepp and international man of mystery Johnny Depp teamed up, it was for the kooky, woefully under-appreciated Stephen King adaptation "Secret Window," a movie that ended with Depp, his teeth entwined with metallic braces, chomping down on some corn-on-the-cob. For their newest collaboration, January's "Mortdecai," the duo have decided to put the silliness out there, front and center, with Depp twirling a ridiculous (even by Brooklyn hipster standards) bit of facial hair and employing a British accent that makes Peter Sellers' voice in the "Pink Panther" movies seem like the pinnacle of grounded realism. And with our quartet of exclusive posters, everyone is getting in on the very goofy act.

In "Mortdecai," Johnny Depp plays the title character, a suave, slightly detached art dealer and, as the corresponding hashtag would suggest, part time rogue, who gets embroiled in a plot that involves terrorists, »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Hanks and Howard Back Together for Dan Brown's 'Inferno'

27 August 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was confirmed last night by Deadline that Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are bringing back Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon for a third time after The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons as Inferno, based on the Dan Brown novel, will head into production in April 2015. Worldwide the first two films brought in $1.24 billion worldwide with only 28% of that total coming from the domestic box office, which is to say this has a big overseas following despite the fact reviews for the first two movies were never stellar. As for this next installment, which skips over The Lost Symbol when it comes to the chronological release of the books' publication dates, here's the synopsis: In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon (Hanks), is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante's Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles »
