Paranormal Activity 5 Gets a Title and March 13, 2015 Release Date

8 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Paranormal Activity 5 release date has been pushed yet again, but Paramount has also given a title to the found footage sequel, which likely signals this release date will (hopefully) stick.  The follow-up will be titled Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension and will now open in theaters on March 13, 2015 instead of October 25th of this year (which didn’t seem likely to happen anyway).  The pic will square off at the box office against Disney’s live-action Cinderella and Ron Howard’s sea-set drama In the Heart of the Sea with Chris Hemsworth.  This latest chapter in the supernatural franchise marks the directorial debut of Gregory Plotkin, who produced the last three installments in the series. This is the next proper sequel after Paramount went the spinoff route earlier this year with Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.  As always, plot details are non-existent, but given the Blumhouse Productions model, »

13 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Acting alongside Chris Hemsworth in Thor was cool and all, but is there anything that tops sharing the screen with a colossal gorilla? We'll have to ask Tom Hiddleston! The 33-year-old Avengers star is set to star in a new King Kong movie called Skull Island! Per Legendary, the production company behind the flick, Skull Island will look into the cinematic origins of the feared ape, particularly the island he comes from. This is the follow-up film to the 2005 movie King Kong, which was directed by Peter Jackson. Legendary debuted a teaser trailer at San Diego's Comic Con in July. In it, viewers got a glimpse of the eerie placed that birthed King Kong—and there were dinosaurs, monstrous urchins and giant »

MPAA Ratings for 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay', 'Into the Woods', 'Blackhat' and More

16 September 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'll be more curious to see the MPAA rating for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 once things in that story get really bloody, but today we have the PG-13 rating for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and it doesn't seem all that our of the ordinary, "intense sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images and thematic material". Today's bulletin also gives us a PG-rating for Rob Marshall's Into the Woods while Addicted, Dear White People and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby all score an "R" rating. Also getting an "R" rating is what may be the first MPAA rating for a 2015 release, unless I'm forgetting something as Michael Mann's cyber thriller Blackhat, starring Chris Hemsworth gets a rather soft R-rating. Check out the complete bulletin below. Addicted Rated R For strong sexual content, nudity, language and brief drug use. Release Date: October 10, 2014 Blackhat Rated »

16 September 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bizarre as it may sound, Thor co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are both now attached to projects involving country music legend Hank Williams. The latter, who plays the villainous Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is actually playing the singer-songwriter in an upcoming biopic called I Saw The Light, and now news has come that the former, the God of Thunder himself, will be seeing hallucinations of the great cowboy crooner in his newest project. News is coming from The Wrap that Chris Hemsworth has optioned the film rights to the Steve Earle novel I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, and has plans to both produce a movie adaptation and star in the lead role.

Chris Hemsworth To Produce And Star In I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive

16 September 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a move that could generate some inspired cross-cinematic synergy, Thor star Chris Hemsworth is attached to produce and headline the drama I’ll Never Get Out of This World Alive. Based on the debut novel from actor and musician Steve Earle (The Wire), the film is about Doc Ebersole, a man struggling with his own demons many years after he was travelling with country star Hank Williams and the singer died.

Ebersole may have been the one to give Williams that fatal morphine dose, as the protagonist is also an addict who lost his medical license and lives in San Antonio’s red-light district. There, he performs some illegal abortions and other operations, and befriends Mexican immigrant Graciela, who has the power to heal others with the touch of her hand.

Ironically, there is currently a Hank Williams biopic in the works entitled I Saw the Light, where the »

Chris Hemsworth Sees Hank Williams' Ghost in Odd Indie Adaptation

16 September 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We already know Tom Hiddleston is bringing county western singer Hank Williams to life in the biopic I Saw the Light, and we've even seen him belt out one of his trademark tunes at a music festival in Michigan. But there's another, odd indie movie developing with ties to the singer as well. The film is called I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive, and The Wrap reports Thor star Chris Hemsworth will star in and produce it, based on Steve Earle's novel of the same name. The story follows Toby “Doc” Ebersole, haunted by the ghost of Hank Williams after being involved in the country singer's mysterious death back in 1953. The man ends up getting his medical license revoked, and we flash forward 10 years where he's ended up in the red-light district of San Antonio, Texas, feeding a bad morphine habit by performing illegal medical procedures.

Chris Hemsworth has optioned the rights to Steve Earle's novel I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, with the actor both starring in and producing the adaptation.

The novel tells the fictitious tale of Toby "Doc" Ebersole, who is haunted by the ghost of country music legend Hank Williams, after he was involved in the singer's death in 1953, which lead to his medical license being revoked. The story picks up 10 years later in the red light district of San Antonio, Texas, where Toby supports his morphine habit by performing illegal medical procedures, while still being visited by Hank's ghost. The project's title is spawned from a 1952 song that Hank Williams co-wrote, which was the last single to be released while he was alive.

Benjamin Grayson wrote the screenplay and will make his feature directorial debut, with Chris Hemsworth producing alongside Laura Bickford (Arbitrage). No production schedule was given. »

16 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s just been cast in a massive movie; the planned Legendary backed Skull Island, and he’ll also be playing Hank Williams in an upcoming project named I Saw The Light, and now it looks like his on-screen brother in the Thor movies, Chris Hemsworth, is all set to star in a similarly themed project named I’LL Never Get Out Of This World Alive.

The film will be based on the novel of the same name by Steve Earle. Here’s the synopsis.

Doc Ebersole lives with the ghost of Hank Williams—not just in the figurative sense, not just because he was one of the last people to see him alive, and not just because he is rumored to have given Hank the final morphine dose that killed him.

In 1963, ten years after Hank’s death, Doc himself is wracked by addiction. Having lost his license to practice medicine, »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Plot Details Don't Give Away Much

16 September 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Marvel and Disney have made available the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron and it doesn't give much away to someone like me that doesn't know anything about the comics, but I have to assume comic book readers can see between the lines. As much as I'm not all that interested in another film in which "the fate of the planet hangs in the balance", I have high hopes for this one. I think Joss Whedon is working with the best this "cinematic universe" has to offer, which is he gets to play with all the characters, which cleans up the issue of "Where is so-and-soc" right off the bat, though with the addition of so many new characters it will be interesting to see how he balances their screen time and how well we'll get to know them all.
