New Dates: "Danish," "Poltergeist," "Spy" & More

10 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A couple of key release date changes have taken place in the last few days, including several of this summer's key titles. 20th Century Fox in particular has shaken up its slate, playing musical chairs with three of its upcoming titles.

The "Poltergeist" remake has been moved up by two months to May 22nd, as a result the Melissa McCarthy comedy "Spy" has been pushed out of that slot and back two weeks to June 5th. On top of that, the road trip tale "Paper Towns" has been moved out of that June 5th slot and into the old "Poltergeist" slot on July 24th.

They aren't the only studio shaking things up though. Stx Entertainment has unveiled its slate of films with an untitled Blumhouse thriller opening July 31st, the remake of the acclaimed "The Secret in their Eyes" opening October 23rd, the horror tale "The Boy" opening January 22nd »

"He said, 'We'd love to have you in it'. I said, 'Well, only if I can play Slimer'. He said he didn't think that would work out."

Speaking about the reboot, Weaver said: "I'm such a huge fan of all those women and I can't wait to see what they do with it.

‘Flashman’ Movie in the Works at Fox (Exclusive)

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox is going back to the 1830s and is developing “Flashman,” a movie based on the period novels by George MacDonald Fraser and setting it up with Ridley Scott’s Scott Free and Peter Chernin’s Chernin Entertainment.

The series was first published in 1969 and centers on Sir Harry Paget Flashman, who first appeared as the bully in the influential 1857 novel “Tom Brown’s School Days.” The Flashman character appeared in a dozen of Fraser’s novels and was portrayed by Malcolm McDowell in the 1975 film “Royal Flash.” The character is an antihero who often runs from danger but usually winds up being acclaimed as a hero.

Daria Cercek is overseeing the project for the studio.

Chernin is a producer on Fox’s Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy,” directed by Paul Feig. Scott directed “The Martian,” which stars Matt Damon and opens Nov. 25.

Fox Pushes Back 'Spy' to June, But Bumps Up 'Poltergeist' to May

23 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: For anyone out there anticipating either the remake of Poltergeist or the action comedy Spy, you'll want to listen up. 20th Century Fox has just shuffled the release dates for each. First of all, Spy starring Melissa McCarthy (watch two trailers right here) has been pushed just a couple weeks to June 5th later in the summer. And moving up a couple months to take its vacated May 22nd release date will be Gil Kenan's new take on Poltergeist from MGM with Rosemarie DeWitt and Sam Rockwell (check out the two teaser trailers here). Finally, due to the shift in Spy, the adaptation of Paper Towns (based on the book by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green) has been pushed to July 24th. It'll be a busy summer! »

Fox Shifts Poltergeist Reboot By Two Months; Now Set To Arrive In May

4 March 2015 3:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox has shuffled around their upcoming summer slate. Now, we’re set to be haunted by those invisible ghosties in Poltergeist two months earlier than scheduled. Also affected by the changes are Melissa McCarthy-Paul Feig comedy, Spy, and John Green adaptation, Paper Towns. The Poltergeist reboot will now land on May 22, the date originally held by Spy, which itself shifts to June 5. Paper Towns, meanwhile, now nabs the July 24 slot that was previously held by Poltergeist.

The reboot of Tobe Hooper’s 1982 original scarefest was developed by producer Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan. A ‘loose’ adaptation the eighties take, this modern day Poltergeist stars Rosemary Dewitt and Sam Rockwell as a married couple whose recent move to a new home comes with its price; they have to share it with ghosts. On top of that, the unseen beasties steal their daughter and begin taunting her parents. »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

Ghostbusters reboot is inspired by The Walking Dead, says Paul Feig

26 February 2015 3:19 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Feig has revealed that his Ghostbusters reboot is "inspired" in part by The Walking Dead.

The director told The Walking Dead's spinoff show Talking Dead that he wants his version of Ghostbusters to be truly frightening.

"I will say, I was very inspired by [The Walking Dead]," Feig told Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick.

"What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it's always about gauntlet run.

"And that's something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead."

Feig's upcoming movie will star Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon as a new group of Ghostbusters.

Paul Feig says his Ghostbusters reboot is inspired by The Walking Dead

25 February 2015 8:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already heard that Paul Feig has compared his Ghostbusters reboot to Night at the Museum, and today we’ve got a new comparison piece. And this one seems a bit more fitting of Ghostbusters than the Ben Stiller vehicle.

While on The Talking Dead on AMC, the Bridesmaids director talked about what inspirations he was taking for his all-female vision of Ghostbusters.

“I will say, I was very inspired by [The Walking Dead],” Feig said. “What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead.”

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters Reboot Will Take Inspiration From The Walking Dead

24 February 2015 12:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot is poised to completely redefine the spooky franchise. Drafting in an all-female cast and a new story, it will include several subtle nods to the original series, but for the most part it’s expected to emerge as a standalone movie. Now, in addition to those cheeky winks, it seems Feig’s enjoyment of a certain undead serial may also play an influential role.

During his appearance on the cleverly titled The Talking Dead (via Screen Crush) – a companion show to AMC’s popular zombie drama, The Walking Dead – Feig brought up the affect that the series has had on his creative process:

“I will say, I was very inspired by this show. What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something; an element »

'Ghostbusters' Reboot Is Inspired by 'The Walking Dead'

24 February 2015 11:49 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Shortly after Paul Feig was announced to take over the Ghostbusters reboot, the director revealed back in October that he wants it to be "really scary," with another unconfirmed report from December hinting that it he may even aim for an R rating. With production slated to begin later this year, there is still much we don't know about the project, except that it will star Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. On Sunday night, Paul Feig appeared on AMC's Talking Dead, where he revealed that the hit zombie series The Walking Dead is inspiring his Ghostbusters reboot.

Paul Feig Says 'The Walking Dead' Inspired New 'Ghostbusters'

24 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's already been established that Paul Feig's upcoming "Ghostbusters" flick will be more of a reboot than a remake, using the original film as a jumping off point to feature new characters and tell new stories. But it turns out that Feig is seeking inspiration for that fresh story from an unlikely source.

In an appearance on "Talking Dead," the "Walking Dead" discussion show, Feig told host Chris Hardwick that the AMC zombie drama was a big help to him and screenwriter Katie Dippold in prepping the project.

"I will say, I was very inspired by this show," Feig told Hardwick. "What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it's always about gauntlet run.

St. Vincent | Blu-ray Review

24 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The independently produced dramedy from helmer Theodore Melfi received a mostly positive critical reception following its premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival (where it picked up the distinct of 2nd runner up for the People’s Choice Award for Best Film) and saw the Weinstein Company position St. Vincent with a crowded October release date. Scoring a Golden Globe nod for Best Comedy, as well as a lead nomination for Murray as Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical, Naomi Watts also secured a surprise SAG nod for her comedic supporting turn, it managed a forty-four million take at the domestic box office, and was pitched as a return to form for Bill Murray.

For a few moments during its initial set-up, Melfi’s directorial debut, seems on the verge of stumbling into schmaltzy cliché, giving us yet another one of those formulas where a tirelessly inappropriate old man mentors a nubile, »

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »
