Universal has recently announced a slew of release date changes for some of their upcoming movies, including Seventh Son, The Mummy, and more importantly Duncan Jones' Warcraft adaptation. Come inside to check out when you'll be able to see these flicks now!
This really shouldn't come as any surprise, though some fans of Warcraft may be a bit disappointed. Earlier this month Disney finally announced the release date for Star Wars Episode VII and it just so happened to be the exact same date taht Universal and Legendary Pictures had set for Warcraft. Many supposed it would only be a matter of time before Universal moved their film so as not to compete agains the inevitable box office juggernaut (it's Star Wars, it practically prints money). So now we'll be seeing Warcraft on the big screen on March 11, 2016.

We mention on this week’s ‘Hollywood Booze’ podcast (online tomorrow) about the planned release of the Duncan Jones directed Warcraft, and the fact that it shared the date with a certain movie named Star Wars Episode VII. Well, it looks like Universal and Legendary Pictures have seen the light and moved the domestic release date from the 18th December, 2015 to 11th March, 2016. Warcraft is a massive movie for the studio and in line with the themes it shares with Star Wars, a move was inevitable.
It’s not just Warcraft that Legendary are moving either. The studio, which departed from Warner Brothers earlier this year, are also moving the Jeff Bridges starrer The Seventh Son to the 6th February, 2014 and the update of The Mummy to the 22nd April, 2016. Andy Muschietti (Mama) is directing the film and Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek) are producing with Sean Daniel. Jon Spaihts wrote the script. »

Universal has provided an update on their release schedule, which includes a date change for The Mummy reboot. While Universal was reportedly interested in seeing The Mummy released as a Summer 2014 movie, a director change has prompted a move to 2016. Their new schedule has The Mummy coming out on April 22nd, 2016.
“A legend that has endured since the dawn of man is reborn in The Mummy, Universal Pictures’ all-new epic action-adventure. The Mummy is conceived with dramatic intensity by an imaginative creative team including director Andy Muschietti (Mama) and producers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek and Transformers series) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy). Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen and Barbara Muschietti will executive produce.”
With a release date set that far away, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a date shift between now and then. We’ll report back as soon as casting »

Disney declared war on Universal when they announced that J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII would be released on the same date as Duncan Jones' adaptation of World of Warcraft. Well, it's the latter who have now backed down as they've moved Warcraft back to March. The movie will be heavy on CGI, so it should also give them the time they need to ensure it looks as good as possible. Star Wars is now free to dominate December in 2015 unless Warner Bros. end up deciding to pit Batman Vs. Superman against them! The Mummy reboot also has a release date, while Seventh Son is now set to be released more than a year later than expected! Universal's The Mummy reboot will unwrap April 22, 2016.

At the start of the summer we reported that Keanu Reeves (The Matrix) and Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line) would be teaming up to star in science fiction romance drama Passengers. Five months later and Reese has been replaced by Rachel McAdams (The Notebook) – and what a damn good replacement she is.
Directed by Brian Kirk (Game Of Thrones) and scripted by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), the film follows a futuristic spaceship travelling across the galaxy to a new planet, with the ship housing thousands of humans who are slumbering in a century-long cryogenic sleep. However, due to a computer malfunction Keanu wakes up 90 years early, with the gloomy prospect of getting old and dying alone dangling in front of him. To banish his loneliness he decides to wake up fellow sleeper Rachel, with the pair floating around the craft together, waiting for something to happen.

Deep in the farthest reaches of the galaxy, a transport vessel stocked with cryogenically preserved humans suffers a minor malfunction: Keanu Reeves is unfrozen ninety years too early. Now, we’re all familiar with the urban legend that Reeves is actually an immortal being from a time long ago (and if not, please educate yourself at Keanuisimmortal.com), but the upcoming Passengers is science fiction, and thus allows for a fictional Reeves that will die of natural causes within nine decades or so. So what’s a space-Keanu Reeves to do? Well, according to Deadline, he’ll be defrosting Rachel McAdams for a strange new kind of science fiction-y love story. Passengers has the potential to be truly fascinating: the screenplay was written by Jon Spaihts, who wrote the original, Damon Lindelof-free draft of Prometheus, and will be helmed by Brian Kirk, who’s cut his teeth on a long list of TV shows including »

It seems like I’ve been covering the progress of “Prometheus” writer Jon Spaihts’s “Passengers” for years now. The film was originally supposed to star Reese Witherspoon and Keanu Reeves, but now it looks like Witherspoon is out, leaving Reeves, much like in the movie, without a mate. That changes with news that Rachel McAdams is in talks to join Reeves in the sci-fi drama, which is currently set with “Game of Thrones” director Brian Kirk behind the camera. (Sheesh. Nowadays, it seems like if you want to direct movies, you have to direct an episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” first.) McAdams is coming off the Brit romcom “About Time” and Terrence Malick’s “To the Wonder”. And I still can’t believe she was playing a high school witch in “Mean Girls” less than 10 years ago. Wow. “Passengers is about “a spacecraft transporting thousands of people »
Witherspoon apparently dropped out of the project because of scheduling conflicts.
Passengers is a love story between two passengers aboard a spacecraft that transports people to a colony on a faraway planet.
One passenger (Reeves) is awakened 90 years before anyone else, due to a malfunction in his sleep chambers. Fearing that he could die alone, he decides to wake up another passenger (McAdams).
Though she’d been circling sci-fi romantic drama Passengers, Reese Witherspoon dropped out of the project due to a schedule clash, leaving Keanu Reeves alone in the depths of space. But there's good news for Neo, as he’s found someone new: Rachel McAdams is in negotiations to sign on instead.Passengers, written by Jon Spaihts, finds a group of humans in cryogenic sleep on a long-range spaceship with a mission to colonise a distant new world. When a computer glitch rouses one of the crew (Reeves) 90 years too early, he faces spending the rest of the trip alone. His solution? Awaken a beautiful woman (McAdams) to join him on his otherwise lonely cruise. We doubt she’ll initially be best pleased. Game Of Thrones veteran Brian Kirk is making his feature directorial debut with the film.McAdams last cropped up on our screens in Richard Curtis’ latest, About Time. »
Keanu Reeves plays a mechanic on a starship transporting colonists to their new home when he is awoken by his pod's hibernation failure - a century before he's supposed to awaken.
A year on, he wakes up a fellow passenger (McAdams) for company. They fall in love, but he must soon deal with the outcome of his actions.
McAdams replaces Reese Witherspoon who was originally attached to star but had to exit due to a scheduling conflict.

Is it just me or does Keanu Reeves have bad luck getting a film off the ground? 47 Ronin went through one too many iterations and Bill & Ted 3 is hovering in a movie netherworld. Now Passengers, which Reeves commissioned back in 2010, is going through a few more growing pains.
While things had appeared to be shaping up for the sci-fi movie, with Reeves in the lead, there’s been a slight set-back resulting in a cast change. Co-star Reese Witherspoon is out of Passengers, and Rachel McAdams is in.
Reese Witherspoon was forced to bow out of Passengers due to scheduling conflicts, leaving the way open for McAdams to take up the role. The film will tell the story of a passenger (Reeves) on a space-ship who’s put into deep freeze for a very long journey to another planet. Things go wrong and he’s accidentally awakened ninety years too early. »

Rachel McAdams is in negotiations to replace Reese Witherspoon in Passengers. We reported in May that Reese Witherspoon was in talks to star alongside Keanu Reeves, but she was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
The story centers on Keanu Reeves's character, one of thousands who set off on an 120-year interstellar voyage to a new planet. However, the man wakes up 90 years ahead of schedule, with only androids for companionship. He decides to wake up a beautiful female journalist named Aurora (Rachel McAdams), and as they begin to fall in love, they also discover a malfunction on the ship that could threaten their lives.
Brian Kirk is making his feature directorial debut, after working on hit TV shows such as Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire. The screenplay was written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), with Wayfare Entertainment producing and providing the financing. It isn't known when production may begin. »
Deadline reports that Rachel McAdams is in talks to join Keanu Reeves in Passengers. A science-fiction romance (which somehow has become McAdams's wheelhouse), it was written by Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts and will be directed by TV director Brian Kirk. The film tells the story of a spaceship tasked with taking thousands of humans to a distant planet. Because of an error, one man (Reeves) wakes up 90 years early. Not wanting to die alone, he wakes up a female (McAdams) and it's romantic and not selfish. Maybe (hopefully) they'll then fight aliens while holding hands. »

To say "Passengers" has been in the works for years is no exaggeration. Since at least 2010 it has been brewing, with Keanu Reeves—who first commissioned the script from Jon Spaihts after reading his 2007 Black List entry "Shadow 19"—attached, going through a couple iterations, without much success. But steam seems to be building now. Earlier this year, "Game Of Thrones" and "Boardwalk Empire" helmer Brian Kirk signed on to direct, with Reese Witherspoon joining not longer after. Now there's a casting switcheroo, but nothing that should hold things up. Rachel McAdams has replaced Witherspoon on the movie, with the actress forced to bow out due to scheduling conflicts. But the movie presses on, with the sci-fi tale centering on a passenger on a spaceship making a centuries-long journey to another planet, who is woken up, accidentally and irreversibly, by a computer glitch, 90 years too early. Faced with the prospect of »
