Hot on the heels of Justin Lin being revealed as the director Paramount Pictures has lined up for Star Trek 3, the third installment has now received a release date. As fans of the Star Trek franchise stretching back to the original series’ premiere in 1966 might have expected, the theatrical debut of the next onscreen USS Enterprise adventure is slated for release in 2016, the year of Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary.

Just one day after Paramount Pictures brought on director Justin Lin to replace the departing filmmaker Roberto Orci on Star Trek 3, the studio has issued a July 8, 2016 release date for the highly-anticipated sequel. This means that the sequel will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the original Star Trek TV series. As of now, Star Trek 3 doesn't have any direct competition in its new release slot, but it will debut one week after DreamWorks' The Bfg and Warner Bros.' Tarzan on July 1, 2016, and one week after Fox's Ice Age 5 and Universal's Untitled Jason Bourne Sequel on July 15, 2016.
No story details have been confirmed at this point, especially after reports surfaced that Paramount scrapped the script which was being worked on by Roberto Orci and new writers J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. Roberto Orci still remains on board as a producer, although it isn't clear if Paramount is »

With J.J. Abrams vacating the director’s chair on the third Star Trek film in the reboot series to helm another sci-fi movie in a galaxy far, far away, Paramount Pictures was searching for a new captain behind the camera, one who could oversee the USS Enterprise and its eclectic crew on their next voyage. After over two weeks of speculation following the confirmation that Roberto Orci will not helm the next Star Trek film, Paramount has selected a director.
Deadline reports that Justin Lin has been set to direct Star Trek 3. Perhaps best known for directing four installments of The Fast and the Furious franchise—The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious, Fast Five, and Fast & Furious 6—Lin is also slated to direct a Jeremy Renner-starring Bourne film and will take the reigns on the first two episodes of True Detective‘s second season. »

Out of the blue, Fox Star India just dropped the teaser for “Broken Horses,” and with it endorsements from James Cameron and Alfonso Cuarón. 62-year-old Indian filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra wrote, produced and directed the film starring an (almost) exclusively Anglo- and American- cast (Vincent D'Onofrio, Anton Yelchin, Chris Marquette, Maria Velverde, Sean Patrick Flanery and Thomas Jane) in his first Hollywood directorial feature after decades of working within the Hindi film world. While the teaser has breakneck pacing, we’re not talking Transformers-level editing. Every clip escalates with action without failing to tease its characters but not giving away too much about the plot. So far, we know that it’s about two brothers getting in trouble/causing trouble on the Mexico border. The Times of India described a film “(about a) relationship between two brothers —a concert-level violinist and a hired mercenary— and is set against the drug war in the. »

Yesterday we learned that Paramount Pictures is looking to hire one of these five directors to direct Star Trek 3: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (Moon, Warcraft).
Out of those directors I'd love to see Jones take on the project, but he's probably going to be busy developing Warcraft. Wyatt is the next best choice, and perhaps he's the studio's favorite as he just made The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg for them. Thanks to Badass Digest, we have some information on why the previously attached director, Roberto Orci, is no longer attached. One of those reasons was because the studio wanted Star Trek 3 to be more like Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and Orci wasn't on board with the idea so he walked.
The site reports that Orci »

Since Roberto Orci stepped away from the director's chair for Star Trek 3, we've heard a rumor that Edgar Wright was wanted for the job. Then Star Trek: First Contact director Jonathan Frakes threw his name into the hat hoping to get the job. Now we have a list of five directors that are currently in the running to take on the challenge. Those directors include: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (Moon, Warcraft).
Out of this current list, which comes from Deadline, my favorite choice is Duncan Jones. I think he's the most talented of the bunch, and could really bring something new, fun, and unique to the franchise that none of those other directors could bring. My second choice would be Wyatt, because he did do a great job »

Exclusive: New films from Pathe, StudioCanal, Gaumont among haul.
Fledgling Turkish distributor Fabula Films has finalised deals for ten films from the Afm, including Nicolas Winding Refn’s next film The Neon Demon from Gaumont and StudioCanal’s 3D animation Robinson.
After securing 20 films at Toronto the outfit has bolstered its slate with Stephen Frears’ Florence Foster Jenkins biopic, starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, and awards contender Selma, both from Pathe.
The latter is set for a February 2015 release.
Post-World War II drama Labyrinth of Lies was bought from Beta Cinema, while the new film by Patrice Leconte Do Not Disturb was picked up from Wild Bunch. The company also acquired Bankside’s crowdpleaser X+Y, starring Asa Butterfield as a socially awkward teenage maths prodigy.

Gibson plays an ex-con who reunites with his estranged 16-year-old daughter, and vows to protect her from the drug dealers who are trying to kill her. The daughter is played by Erin Moriarty, who portrayed Woody Harrelson’s daughter in HBO’s “True Detective.”
Gibson and Andrew Garfield have been in talks to come on board World War II drama “Hacksaw Ridge.” If the deals go through, Gibson will direct the movie, based on the life of Desmond T. Doss, the first conscientious »

Only Lovers Left Alive (voted by Rick)
Only Lovers Left Alive, the latest film from cult indie director Jim Jarmusch, stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as Adam and Eve, two century old vampires. Adam is an underground musician with a dedicated cult following. In his past time, he drives through the city in his classic Jaguar, collects music memorabilia, photographs, books, vintage musical instruments and old vinyls. He lives in an isolated home in the ruins of Detroit Michigan where he reunites with his enigmatic lover Eve. There, he enlists the help of one of his most dedicated fans (Anton Yelchin) to help collect the analog equipment he needs, and his doctor (Jeffrey Wright) to provide him with a steady supply of his favourite drink, type O-negative. Immortality is weighing on him and thoughts of suicide slowly take over. Not much happens, and not much needs to. »
The non-stop Nicolas Cage has teamed up with Taxi Driver scribe Paul Schrader, who here writes and directs, for the first thriller of 2015 when Dying Of The Light opens in the UK on 2nd January 2015 and we’ve got the UK exclusive Quad to share with you.
Cage takes on the role of Evan Lake, a desk-bound Langley CIA agent, forced into retirement by signs of early onset dementia. In that ‘one last job’ adage, he discovers that his former nemesis, Jihadist Muhhamed Banir (Alexander Karim), is not dead as assumed but alive and receiving experimental medical treatment. Even though this might be echoing Homeland for a few people, it still could be a decent thriller for Cage who recently found some of that historic form in The Frozen Ground.
Interestingly, this is also backed by Nicolas Winding Refn as an executive producer and so there’s a positive inkling »

Editor's Note: We're featuring individually chosen Fyc's for various longshots in the Oscar race. We'll never repeat a film or a category so we hope you enjoy the variety of picks. And if you're lucky enough to be an AMPAS, HFPA, or Critics Group voter, take note! Here's Tim on Only Lovers Left Alive.
From Gary Oldman’s transformation into a desiccated gargoyle, to a 7-year-old wearing plastic fangs, vampires have long been an inspiration for disguising human beings as immortal bloodsuckers. And with Only Lovers Left Alive, the hair and makeup designer Gerd Zeiss has made a terrific addition to the annals of the cinematic undead.
Director Jim Jarmusch’s vision for the film was more about characters detached from time than horror, and so the vampires played by Tilda Swinton,Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowsa, and John Hurt haven’t been designed to look like animate corpses, so »

With Taxi Driver, American Gigolo, The Last Temptation of Christ and more, screenwriter Paul Schrader is responsible for a handful of classics. As a director though, he hasn’t made a great film since 2002’s Auto Focus. His last directorial effort, The Canyons, wasn’t half as interesting as the gossip surrounding the project. The same can almost be said for his latest picture, Dying of the Light, a movie that was taken away from Schrader — scored, mixed, and re-cut without him. The troubled production is apparent in the final product. Written by Schrader, Dying of the Light is centered around a veteran CIA agent, Evan Lake (Nicolas Cage), who’s displeased with his current position. The former field operative wasn’t meant to be stuck in an office, but his superiors are wary of his obsession that began 22 years prior with Lake being tortured by a terrorist, Muhammad Banir (Alexander Karim). The terrorist is presumed dead »

Less than seven months after he was tapped to replace J.J. Abrams at the helm of Star Trek 3, Roberto Orci has backed away from the project. If he would have stayed on board, it would have marked his directorial debut, after co-writing the scripts for Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness and several other big-budget tentpoles such as Mission: Impossible III, Transformers and this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Deadline also reports that Edgar Wright is being eyed as a possible replacement, but he is just one of several unidentified filmmaker's on Paramount's short list. Roberto Orci is still remaining on board the sequel as a producer.
It isn't known why Roberto Orci is no longer directing, but his commitment to the project forced him to back out of yet another directorial effort in September, Lionsgate's Power Rangers reboot. We reported in August that the director had completed the »
Today, Paul Schrader's "The Dying Of The Light" opens in cinemas, but here's the thing — he doesn't want you to see it. He has claimed he was locked out of the editing room and unable to deliver the cut he wanted, yet the film is going out with Schrader's name but not his support. Is this a case of an auteur's vision being egregiously wrestled away from him or differences of opinion on details of structure and style? It would appear it's more the latter than the former. In their review of the film published today, Film Comment has the unique perspective of having seen both the released version of the movie and apparently Schrader's workprint cut. What of changes made? Well first, let's recap the basic premise: starring Nicolas Cage, Anton Yelchin and Irene Jacob, the film follows a veteran CIA agent Evan Lake, who is fighting dementia and is forced into retirement. »

Does Not Go Quietly: Schrader’s Latest Tampered Product
Veteran film director and screenwriter Paul Schrader just can’t seem to catch a break. Much like the fate of his 2003 Exorcist prequel, his latest directorial effort, Dying of the Light has also been reedited, scored and mixed without his approval, which led to a quiet movement of protest via social media where Schrader asked audiences to avoid this studio product, which also included the support of stars Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin. However, it’s just the kind of publicity that would perhaps enliven interest for a film that would otherwise have flown under the radar (and one thinks Cage should have asked audiences the same request of this year’s earlier release of Left Behind, instead). Rife with a series of awkward developments and bizarrely presented characters that are grimly determined to maintain an aura of stilted seriousness that »
