Relativity Media's Movie 43, which features 16 off-beat comedy sketches with stars including Halle Berry, Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman, won worst picture, worst screenplay for its 19 screenwriters, »
The Lone Ranger is a film of epic scope. Everything is larger than life. The characters, the set pieces, the costumes, and the makeup are all created to amaze. Spectacle is the point of a summer blockbuster, after all, but it can also be a film’s worst enemy. After its poor showing at the box office, the $215 million film is now best known as one of 2013′s biggest disasters. That stigma is a hard one to shake, and can often poison the perception of both the film as a whole and the individual accomplishments of the production.

Guy Ritchie’s take on NBC’s espionage series is arriving early next year, with a theatrical debut January 16, 2015, over Martin Luther King weekend. Starring Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill, this will be the first return of the property to mainstream audiences in over thirty years. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. ran from 1964 to 1968, and starred secret agents Illya Kuryakin (David McCallum) and, no joke, a guy named Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn), as a two-man team defending the free world from the nefarious organization, Thrush. One of the unique aspects of the show was creator Sam Rolfe and producer Norman Felton’s narrative of international cooperation, with the two main agents hailing from North America and Russia, working for an international organization united under one cause. This is particularly noteworthy considering the series ran during the Cold War, when there was no love loss between the United States and the Soviet Union. It »

Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo's only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe."

Despite a few key shifts, Summer 2015 remains one of the most crowded seasons of tentpole films to date - so much so that some big films are being pushed to other months to fill in the gaps.
Warner Bros. Pictures has now scheduled two of its films to occupy the currently quiet early 2015 release schedule.
Guy Ritchie's "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," the big screen reboot of the 1960s spy series, will bow on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday frame of January 16th 2015.

It's had a long journey to the screen, losing Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney along the way, but the much-developed Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie is now finally within sight. Guy Ritchie is directing, with Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer playing the leads, and the latest news is the release date: it'll be spying on cinema screens - in the Us at least - from January 16 next year.That window means it's currently opening against Michael Mann's Cyber (which may not actually be called Cyber at all); the Paul McGuigan / Max Landis Frankenstein; and Kevin Hart comedy The Wedding Ringer. Don't be fooled into thinking that January is the film dumping ground it used to be either. The Martin Luther King Day holiday weekend, while it doesn't rake in summer money, has become an important date on the calendar, and this year provided reasons to celebrate for Ride Along, »
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. will face 20th Century Fox's Frankenstein, Universal's Cyber and Sony's The Wedding Ringer.

Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Debicki and Jared Harris co-star.
Focus will be going up against Universal's Everest and Focus Features' Selfless. Will Smith stars as a con man who takes a young woman (Margot Robbie) under his wing, although the partnership becomes complicated when they both fall for one another. Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are directing from their own original screenplay, »
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. looked much more promising when it was announced. Warner Bros. locked in Guy Ritchie to direct fresh off the billion dollar Sherlock Holmes franchise, and the studio locked in the two potential biggest stars of the 2013 summer season. Oh, did we mention those actors were Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill? Hammer wasn.t the face of the failure of The Lone Ranger - that would be Johnny Depp - but he did play the title character in one of the industry.s all-time biggest blockbuster bombs. Cavill, comparatively, had a better season, as Man Of Steel grossed $668 million worldwide. And yet, when news spread Ben Affleck was going to be in a movie pitting Batman against Superman, fans asked, "Who is playing Superman?" And then again, "Wait, who?" Those kinds of things have an effect on anticipation for a film, and now »

Warner Bros. are spending this afternoon getting some ducks in a row for their slate of upcoming blockbusters, so let's dive right in. We're just a few months away before "Godzilla" once again stomps the Earth, and a monstrous new poster is here via Yahoo to let you know just how big the creature is. Yep, there's the lizard strolling through San Francisco, with the Transamerica Pyramid barely reaching his shoulder. Gareth Edward's film is dropping on May 16th, and if you need a reason to see this, the cast alone should get you through the door: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche and Sally Hawkins. And while the star power behind "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." might not be as huge as the monster flick, Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Hugh Grant, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani are no slouches and neither is director Guy. »

It’s been almost 10 years since the first episode of Veronica Mars aired in the fall of 2004, and in that decade, a lot of the pretty young faces who traveled the halls of Neptune High have made names for themselves.
A few of those now-famous guests include Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer (season 3′s “Wichita Linebacker”) and Glee cheerleader Dianna Agron (season 3′s “President Evil” and “Weevils Wobble but They Don’t Go Down”), and there are plenty more.

Steven Soderberg was originally on board to direct, considering leading men including Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling, and Michael Fassbender for a part before bailing on the project. Guy Ritchie eventually took over directing duties in 2012.
