15 October 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has seen its release date pushed back into next year.

The sci-fi comedy was due to open in cinemas on Christmas Day through Paramount, but has now been delayed until February 20, 2015.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 will now open against the Sean Penn-led action film The Gunman, Kevin Costner sports drama McFarland, USA and Natalie Portman's Jane Got a Gun.

Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Chevy Chase all reprise their roles from the original film, with Adam Scott stepping in for the absent John Cusack. Scott will play the son of Cusack's character.

Community star Gillian Jacobs is a new addition the cast.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Time Travels From December To February

15 October 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In an extremely unsurprising turn of events, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has been shifted from its previous Christmas release date to February 20th of next year. The holiday season is always tremendously crowded at the box office, and the competition is so steep this year that the raunchy sequel wouldn’t have stood an ice cube’s chance in hell at the box office.

Clark Duke, Rob Cordrry, Craig Robinson, Chevy Chase and Collette Wolfe all return for the follow-up, in which Lou (Cordrry) becomes the father of the Internet and is shot by an unknown assailant from the future, leading the gang to jump into the time machine to save their friend. John Cusack is not returning, and Parks and Recreation‘s Adam Scott will be taking on a new role to fill in for him. Community‘s Gillian Jacobs also has a part.

'Independence Day 2' and 'Hitman: Agent 47' Get New Release Dates

14 October 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox made a few tweaks to its schedule today, shifting Independence Day 2 from the crowded July 1, 2016 release date to June 24, 2016, while moving Hitman: Agent 47 up nearly six months from February 27, 2015 to August 28, 2015.

Independence Day 2, which is reportedly bringing back Jeff Goldblum to star, would have faced Sony's Angry Birds, Disney's The Bfg and Warner Bros.' Tarzan on July 1, but now it only has to contend with Universal's Untitled Mummy Reboot one week earlier. No story details have been given for Independence Day 2, which will not feature the return of Will Smith .

Hitman: Agent 47, which stars Rupert Friend as the title character, will now face the Dimension Films thriller Regression on August 28, 2015, instead of going up against Warner Bros.' Focus and The Transporter Legacy on February 27, 2015. The plot is based on the video game of the same name, which follows a sole assassin who works for a sinister corporation. »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Skips The Interview, Time Travels to February

14 October 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

This isn't all that surprising.  Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is now foregoing its original December 25th, 2014 release date and moving to February 20th.  This makes sense for a few reasons, the first of which is that it needs to get out of the way of Seth Rogen and James Franco's The Interview, which is shaping up to be something of a comedic juggernaut (at least in terms of my perception - it feels like awareness is high for that one).  Also telling?  My first thought when I saw this news was, "that was supposed to come out on Christmas?"  It doesn't feel like they've been aggressively marketing the movie (aside from the trailer) and I feel like February is safer ground for this franchise anyway. Paramount also moved Scouts vs. Zombies from that date and placed it on October 30th, 2015, also a move of confidence in that horror comedy it looks like. »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine season one DVD review: Non-stop laughs

29 September 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Not many comedy series, even some of the greatest of all time, start as strongly as Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The cop comedy is the funniest Us import of 2014, bringing big belly laughs and an ensemble cast that have a true spark and chemistry.

On paper it may sound like a very traditional workplace comedy with the usual tropes of will-they won't-they office romances and rivalries, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine installs the format with a colourful array of characters, silly stakeouts and brilliant cameos (Craig Robinson, in particular) so that it feels utterly fresh and original.

Andy Samberg was already well known for his work on Saturday Night Live, hilarious comedy group The Lonely Island and underrated BBC Three series Cuckoo, but in Brooklyn Nine-Nine he takes on the leading man role as the cocky, infantile and gloriously daft Jake Peralta.

Balancing out Samberg's big grin and goofiness is the show's secret weapon, »

Better call this one in: Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning to the streets—and to your flat-screens—on Sept. 28 at 8:30 p.m. It’s been a long wait, as the season finale in May left us hanging from a cliff made out of exclamation points and question marks: Jake is working undercover for the FBI!?!?! He confessed his crush to Amy!?!?! And what the—Charles slept with Gina!?!?! So, what barely legal hijinks can you expect in season two from first-degree wiseass detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), absolute-opposite-of-wiseass Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), and the rest of the precinct? »

Craig Robinson will return to 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' as Pontiac Bandit

25 September 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

It appears that the Pontiac Bandit will soon commit more theft—of the scene-stealing variety. Craig Robinson will reprise his role as the likeable car thief on Fox’s cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine this season, EW has learned exclusively.

In the Christmas episode, which is slated to air in early to mid-December, Jake (Andy Samberg) reluctantly joins forces with the charming criminal he’d been pursuing for years (and who slipped away at the end of an episode last season) in order to take down a drug kingpin. “The Pontiac Bandit once again comes into Jake’s life, and once »

Film Review: James Brown Bio ‘Get On Up’ Stuck in a Funk

1 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – “Get On Up” contains one dynamite performance trapped in a frustratingly mediocre movie. James Brown’s life and music offer a wealth of material to work with, that doesn’t necessarily adhere to the conventions of a formulaic musical biopic.

Director Tate Taylor instead decides to put his life on shuffle. Taylor and screenwriters John-Henry Butterworth and Jez Butterworth seem to be intentionally trying to avoid making a straightforward Hollywood biopic. They’ve made a borderline incoherent one instead.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

When I saw Chadwick Boseman in the Jackie Robinson story “42” last year I thought he looked like an actor being crushed by the weight of the legend of the man he was portraying. But he is more than up to the task of channeling the Godfather Of Soul. Boseman proves he can get down, entertainingly recreating Brown’s moves on stage right down to those leg-stretching splits. But the performance goes beyond mere impersonation. »

Tate Taylor talks about Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in 'Get On Up'

1 August 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today, August 1st, director Tate Taylor's newest movie, "Get on Up," opens nationwide.  A biopic starring Chadwick Boseman as James Brown, the movie is debuting nearly three years to the day after Taylor's previous directorial effort, "The Help," which opened on August 10, 2011. While the films are not the same by any stretch, there are undoubtedly similarities between the two – both take place the South, both take place during our recent history, and both feature Viola Davis & Octavia Spencer.  The elements worked well for Taylor last time out, earning positive reviews and garnering several awards and nominations including an Academy Award for Spencer. The new movie is already receiving positive reviews for Boseman's performance.  Taylor, sitting down with HitFix recently for an interview, said that he knew on the first day that Boseman's work would be something special. "We, as a producing team, to aide Chad, we kind of stacked »

Get On Up – The Review

31 July 2014 9:03 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Although usually the domain of pre-Oscar, end of the year holiday season, the feature film biography, or “bio-pic”, will occasionally pop up amongst the big Summer blockbusters. A little over a year ago it was 42, the story of Jackie Robinson. Its late Spring release might also be seen as a response to 2011′s surprise Summer smash The Help which also explored American race relations, but used fictional characters. This weekend sees the release of Get On Up, the biopic of music superstar James Brown. And while most of Get takes place a decade after Robinson’s barrier-breaking entry into then all-white major league baseball, Brown shattered some similar barriers and became one of the first major black entertainers that captured fans of all races. And, wouldn’t you know it, the talented young actor who played Jackie Robinson last year, Chadwick Boseman, trades in his cleats for florescent platforms in »

'Get On Up' (2014) Movie Review

31 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't expect biopics to ever give me the full story or even an accurate story for that matter. In fact, many documentaries are only giving us one side of the argument and sometimes less than that when compared to films based on a true story. So when it comes to Tate Taylor's take on the life of the "Godfather of Soul", James Brown, Get On Up plays like a film that gives us a small taste of the darkness that was in Brown's soul after a rough upbringing and a life in which he felt he was always on his own. The result is entertaining and inspiring while also being a little bloated in the middle. One thing, however, is for certain, Chadwick Boseman continues to impress, following up his performance in 42 with another "out of the park" portrayal of an iconic, bigger-than-life star.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Goes Terminator with Red-Band Trailer

29 July 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Well, it turns out that a hot tub time machine can do more than travel backwards in time, and it might have a mind of its own, as we learn in the e new red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2. As the Repairman states: “The hot tub doesn’t take you where you want to go, it takes you where you need to go.”

In the new red-band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine (2010), Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke (we’re already skeptical due to the absence of John Cusack, who has been replaced by Adam Scott) are living the high life after Lou (Corddry) altered their futures at the end of the first film. But when a would-be assassin attempts to kill Lou, they must use the hot tub again to save his life by preventing the attempt on Lou’s life. »
