Check out New Images from Furious 7, Inside Out, Insurgent, Chappie, Pan, The Walk, and Everest

19 December 2014 10:31 AM, PST | | See recent news »

As part of their 2015 preview issue, EW has released a new Furious 7 image along with new images from Inside Out, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Chappie, Pan, The Walk, and Everest.  After a 2014 that I felt was fairly disappointing (I wanted to like Birdman and Inherent Vice so badly, and there were so many films that were pretty good, but short of greatness), but I'm hoping that 2015 will be better, and there are plenty of promising films.  Inside Out and Everest could be very interesting; Furious 7 looks like it can keep the momentum of Fast & Furious 7;The Walk has a captivating true story behind it, I can't count out Chappie director Neill Blomkamp or Pan director Joe Wright.  And as for Insurgent…well…*crickets* Hit the jump to check out the new Furious 7 image as well as the new stills from Inside Out, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, »

New Pictures from 'Star Wars 7', 'Insurgent', 'Furious 7', 'Ted 2', 'Jurassic World' and More

19 December 2014 10:16 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Walt Disney Pictures Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from upcoming 2015 releases including the likes of some artwork from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens as seen directly above as well as pics from Ted 2, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Furious 7, Jurassic World and many more. Full disclosure, just from looking at these pictures I wouldn't have been able to figure out what some of them are from, but lucky for you this isn't a "Guess the Movies" installment. Here's a look at several of the new pictures along with a little commentary of my own over the course of the next couple pages. I would have guessed this first picture below was for a Baby Mama sequel I didn't yet know existed -- in which case I'd have yelled, "Whoop whoop!" -- but alas, it's for a film called Sisters (previously known as The Nest »

19 December 2014 9:40 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What?. Arash Amel (@arashamel) December 18, 2014 But, if this is true, which writers have been given the opportunity to provide the script for Michelle MacLaren.s film? Well, according to Screen Rant, Jason Fuchs, who wrote Pan for Joe Wright, was recently brought in to work on one on the scripts. There.s also a good chance that Michelle MacLaren »

Joe Wright's 'Pan' Moves Away from Marvel's 'Ant-Man' by One Week

10 December 2014 6:16 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Briefly: After debuting the first trailer for Joe Wright's new take on a classic fantasy with Pan, it looks like Warner Bros. Studios has decided to give the adventure starring Hugh Jackman a better chance at the box office by opening on July 24th, 2015. This way it no longer has to go up against Marvel's forthcoming Ant-Man the previous weekend. While the comic book film may be the shakiest endeavor out of all of Marvel's big screen adaptations yet, it still has the comic book studio's bump to get butts in the seats that weekend. Now Pan will open up against Adam Sandler's video game action comedy Pixels, the remake of Poltergeist from Fox and Judd Apatow's comedy Trainwreck. Stay tuned for more updates down the road. »

'Pan' Release Date Moves to Avoid Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

10 December 2014 12:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy proved that the Marvel brand name is bigger than any of the titles the studio plans to release in the future, with this relatively unknown comic book adaption going onto become the biggest release of 2014. Other studios are well aware that any movie arriving under the Marvel umbrella will surely be a box office success. Especially Warner Bros., who moved their Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to get out of the way of Captain America: Civil War earlier this year. Now, they are shifting the release date of another movie, moving their Peter Pan reboot to get it out of the way of the incoming Ant-Man.

Both Ant-Man and Pan were set to be released on July 17th. Ant-Man will now enjoy this summer weekend to itself, while Pan moves to the far more crowded weekend of July 24th. There, it will face off against Sony's video game adventure Pixels, »

Michelle MacLaren's 'Wonder Woman' Movie Picks Up 'Pan' Scribe

5 December 2014 8:03 AM, PST | | See recent news »

After a whole slew of Marvel news yesterday arriving with Benedict Cumberbatch officially announced as Doctor Strange, and confirmation that Ryan Reynolds would play Deadpool in 20th Century Fox's adaptation of the meta anti-hero comic book, it's time for the DC Comics side of things to get an update. THR reports that the developing Wonder Woman movie has landed a writer. Jason Fuchs, the man behind Joe Wright's fantasy adaptation Pan (watch the first trailer with Hugh Jackman right here), has entered talks to script the movie set up at Warner Bros. Pictures and slated for release on July 17th, 2017. Recently hired director Michelle MacLaren will work with Fuchs on the script for the film as she develops the first big screen adventure for the iconic female superhero, played by Fast & Furious franchise star Gal Gadot.

Pan Writer Jason Fuchs in Talks to Write Wonder Woman Movie

4 December 2014 5:11 PM, PST | | See recent news »

First the Wonder Woman movie had a star, then it got a director, and now it has a writer.  Fresh off confirmation that well-respected TV veteran Michelle MacLaren will develop and direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros., THR reports that the studio is in negotiations with Jason Fuchs to pen the screenplay.  Fuchs was a writer on the animated sequel Ice Age: Continental Drift, but he has experience with WB having most recently written the upcoming Pan for director Joe Wright.  THR adds that Fuchs is already working on a Pan sequel, but the Wonder Woman movie will no doubt be a priority for now with a 2017 release date looming. Gal Gadot was cast as the titular character for her first appearance in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and rumors claim that this Wonder Woman film will be a period piece/origin story that takes place in the 1920s. »

The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

28 November 2014 8:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week.   Pan This definitely isn’t what we were expecting from Joe Wright’s Pan, but his spin on the J.M. Barrie classic does come as a nice surprise. Hook didn’t get much love from critics, but we've watched the film countless times and still adore it, so we're really enjoying the fact that Pan shares some tonal and stylistic similarities to that. It’s got a somewhat theatrical feel to it with rich, vibrant sets, eccentric costumes and fun, playful performances -- and then Christina Perri’s “I Believe” beautifully pulls it all together.      Exodus: Gods...

'Pan' Trailer: See Peter Pan's Wild, Colorful Origin Story

25 November 2014 4:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

It was Oprah Winfrey who once famously prophesied, "You get an origin story! And you get an origin story! Everybody gets an origin story!" At least it certainly seems that way these days, and the latest pop-culture icon to get a reimagining is Peter Pan. Obviously there have already been countless versions of this story in the past (and NBC is weeks away from a live broadcast of a new Peter Pan play), but what makes Pan different is that Hook isn't a bad guy. At least based on this first trailer, that is. Just going off first glances, you might think that Hugh Jackman is playing Hook in this new movie, from director Joe Wright (Hanna, Pride & Prejudice), but he's actually Blackbeard. Garrett Headland is Hook, Rooney Mara is Tiger Lily, and newcomer...

The ‘Pan’ Trailer: Hugh Jackman Is Ready To Twirl Some Mustaches

25 November 2014 2:50 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s been 11 years since we last saw Peter Pan. In 2003 P.J. Hogan made a surprisingly exciting and faithful adaptation of Peter Pan — one that really delved into the sexual subtext of J.M. Barrie’s text — but it didn’t exactly set the world on fire. Since it wasn’t much of a hit, that means nobody is complaining about already bringing the character back to the big screen. Joe Wright’s Pan isn’t a remake or reboot, though, but a prequel. Pan stars Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Garrett Hedlund as the innocent James Hook (who one day, of course, becomes Captain Hook). The trailer begins with an introduction to Pan (Levi Miller), an orphan during WWII. One night him and his buddies are kidnapped by pirates disguised as clowns, led by Blackbeard. Watch the first Pan trailer below: Well, you gotta give’m credit for going big. This »
