The Chicken Soup For The Soul Movie Picked One Of The Worst Possible Release Dates

12 hours ago

Usually, when plotting the release of your film, you want to use give your product, which you.ve spent a significant amount of time, effort, and capital to produce, every advantage you can get. Increasingly, there.s more and more competition for fewer and fewer audience members. Chicken Soup for the Soul, however, just made what appears to be a very counterintuitive move, scheduling its release up against what is sure to be one of the biggest movies of 2016. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chicken Soup for the Soul has set its release date as December 16, 2016. If that specific Friday some 16 months from now sounds familiar, that.s probably because it also happens to be the release date of the first of the standalone Star Wars Story films, the Gareth Edwards-directed Rogue One. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens looming on the horizon this December, hype for the »

According to a report from Deadline, the as-yet-untitled film has cast The Office and The 40-Year-Old Virgin star Steve Carell to take over for Bruce Willis.

This will be Carell.s second time teaming up with Allen, as he was also part of the director.s 2004 romantic comedy-drama Melinda and Melinda. Though there is little in the way of details on this latest Woody Allen joint.he.s »

Michael B. Jordan Will Follow Fantastic Four With Another Comic Book Movie

14 hours ago

You might think that after Fantastic Four, which was a debacle on every level, those involved might want to steer away from comic book movies, at least for a while. That may be the case for some, but not for Michael B. Jordan, who played Johnny Storm in the ill-fated film, as he has set his sights on the comic book-based vampire comedy Blood Brothers, which sounds like it.s going to be awesome. According to The Tracking Board, Jordan is in talks to take one of the two leads in Blood Brothers for MGM. He.s up for the role of Tree in the film that is described as an "edgy two-hander." While the story does indeed originate on the pages of a comic book, that.s where the similarities with Fantastic Four begin and end. This is not your typical superhero comic book we.re talking about here. »

Jk Rowling Fires Back At Claims Fantastic Beasts Is Too White

18 hours ago

While fans of the magical world of Harry Potter are excited to return to that realm in the spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the casting has stirred up a bit of controversy. Set in New York in the 1920s, a veritable melting pot of a city, what we know of the cast is exclusively white, which has raised some eyebrows. Potter creator, and Beasts screenwriter, J.K. Rowling, has now chimed in, hoping to assuage these fears. An article in Hypable recently showed up and raised concerns about New York City, which was and still is a mixture of cultures from around the world, will be whitewashed, and others have expressed similar concerns. Rowling took to Twitter and said:   @Vividscarletsky Everyone in #FantasticBeasts is not white. — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) August 25, 2015 While we don’t know all of the cast members just yet, »

It Sounds Like Bruce Willis Was Fired By Woody Allen

18 hours ago

Bruce Willis has indeed left the cast of Woody Allen’s upcoming film, but not for the reasons that we initially thought. While early reports indicated that Willis departed from the project as a result of scheduling conflicts with his participation in an adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery on Broadway, it has now come to light that director Woody Allen may have in fact fired the Die Hard star.  According to Hitfix, this news comes based off a Twitter excange between The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider and Tom O'Leary, which indicates Willis experienced immense difficulty delivering his lines. This trouble impeded production and caused excess stress on cast and crew members.   @TheInSneider Yep. Fired. A friend is on the film. Bruce couldn't remember a line. Cue cards were no help. Cast were losing their minds. — Tom O'Leary (@TomOLeary4) »

Godzilla In Pacific Rim 3? Guillermo Del Toro Wants It

19 hours ago

We already know that when Pacific Rim 2 stomps through theaters in 2017, it.s going to be big. It.s a movie about giant monsters battling giant mechanical warriors, how can it not be massive? However, if director and mastermind Guillermo del Toro has his way, the franchise will get even bigger: he wants to bring Godzilla into the fold. Even months ahead of the release of the first Pacific Rim, and more than a year in front of Gareth Edward.s Godzilla reboot, the Hellboy director was talking about the possibilities. Moviepilot just put together an argument (we made a very similar case a few years back) for how and why this could happen, and pulled this quote del Toro gave in an interview with Collider back in 2013. Riffing on the possibility, he said: So far with the sequel, what we.re writing, what we.re creating, is very different, »

19 hours ago

Ever wanted to have your own Vision costume that was exactly like Paul Bettany.s in Avengers: Age Of Ultron? Of course you do, because it.s cool as funk. Well, a brand spanking new video to promote the upcoming release of Age Of Ultron on DVD has shown just how much rigmarole went into the actor becoming the Vision, and it will almost certainly have you rethinking your Halloween costume.  I.m going to put it out there: I love Paul Bettany. He just looks as though he.s one extremely positive and happy soul who is grateful everyday that he is a successful actor. Plus, it also probably helps that he.s married to the astonishingly talented and downright gorgeous Jennifer Connolly.  However, one point in time when Paul Bettany wasn.t that pleased with the world was when he realised the complicated process that he.d have »

Production on Suicide Squad sounds like it.s been one hell of a journey. Not only have the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and Jai Courtney been tasked with creating DC.s more anarchic version of Guardians Of The Galaxy, they.ve also had to put up Ben Affleck.s Batman causing mayhem on set just through his appearance, Comic-Con, and an abundance of tattoos.

22 hours ago

Matt Damon just provided an update on the upcoming fifth instalment to the Bourne franchise, explaining the main thrust and drive that drew him back to the character. As it turns out, we have Edward Snowden and the recent austerity crisis across Europe to thank for Damon.s involvement. During his recent discussion with Buzz Feed, Matt Damon, who previously starred in The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Legacy, which in turn helped to turn him into a legitimate action star, admitted that everyone involved had to wait for the world to change in order to bring a fresh edge to the series. He explained that after discussing the idea of a follow-up a number of times with director Paul Greengrass over the years, it wasn.t until Edward Snowden and the Nsa whistleblowing tales emerged that they felt they had a story worth telling.

Deadpool Should Have The Funniest Outtakes, If We Ever Get To See Them

23 hours ago

Given the titular hero.s nickname "The Merc With The Mouth," Deadpool is all but guaranteed to feature an endless parade of great one liners and insults that come pouring out of star Ryan Reynolds. mouth. As many of those great moments as the movie may have, however, it seems that what will be on the screen will only represent a mere fraction of the witty lines that the actor wound up improving and unleashing on set during production. Ed Skrein plays the villainous Ajax is the new Tim Miller-directed comic book movie, and it was while recently talking with USA Today that he discussed not only the verbal acrobatics that Ryan Reynolds performed on set, but also his disappointment that we will likely only get to see certain takes he did in the finished cut of the movie.

28 August 2015 7:30 AM, PDT

If treated properly, historical biopics on famous leaders can be inspirational - or at the very least entertaining in a thought provoking manner. We.ve seen it with Frost/Nixon, Hyde Park On Hudson, and even with the recent Netflix series Marco Polo. If you handle the facts with enough dramatic flourish, people will take notice. As if taking its cues from that very Netflix series, as well as HBO.s Game Of Thrones, the producers behind the 300 franchise are ready to tell the tale of Julius Caesar in a similarly thrilling manner. Variety broke the scoop that producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, veterans of both 300 and 300: Rise Of An Empire, have jumped on board as two of the producers for Emperor, an upcoming film about Julius Caeser. According to the trade, the project will aim to tell the untold story of the Rome.s great leader. following »

27 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT

When you think of David Fincher.s 1999 film Fight Club, a number of words may come to mind: macho, violent, soap. Chances are, however, when you think of the Brad Pitt and Edward Norton-starring flick, the first description you think of is not adorable. Well, that may very well change after you watch this new video: G-Rated Fight Club. This video comes from folks over at Fine Brothers Entertainment, and if you ever ventured to imagine an animated, elementary school version of Fight Club, you know, without the sex, swearing, violence, and general mayhem, this is probably pretty much what it would look like. And it.s a lot of goddamn fun. Edward Norton.s Narrator or Jack or whatever you want to call him, is transported from the mundane life of a cubicle drone to the mundane life of a suburban 4th grader. While in a Cootie support group, »

We already know that when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens later this year, it.s going to make a lot of money. Even if Lucasfilm has cautioned that it may not make as much as people think, however it goes down, it.ll do just fine. According to one new prediction, however, The Force Awakens is going to make an insane amount of money, like just a stupid, ridiculous number. According to Deadline, some industry experts are already predicting that when The Force Awakens hits theaters in December, it will make historic sums of money. The number being bandied about right now is that we could be in for a $615 million global opening, as in people guess that the J.J.
