"Captain America 3" To Concede Date?

11 hours ago

Following on from various questions about "Star Wars: Episode VII," Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn's recent interview about the studio's upcoming slate yielded one surprising concession.

Horn was asked about the current release date stand-off between Disney & Marvel Studios' "Captain America 3" and Warner Bros.' "Batman vs. Superman" which are both slated to hit on May 6th 2016.

Variety reporter Brent Lang was on hand and tweeted the following quote from Horn about it: "We'll see. We're struggling with it."

This is the first indication that one of the studios is considering changing the date. The superb returns for 'Winter Soldier' in the normally quiet early April period have proven that they could open a follow-up on practically any date and it would be a hit.

The topic of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" also came up, but Horn says "we haven't seen a screenplay »

Washington, Fuqua Talk "The Equalizer"

11 hours ago

Sony Pictures has unveiled a bunch of new photos from its upcoming big screen reboot of "The Equaliser" franchise courtesy of USA Today.

Denzel Washington stars as retired government operative Robert McCall who tries to live a humble life as a home-store employee in Boston and ends up becoming a vigilante for the helpless, in this case a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz).

Director Antoine Fuqua says: "There's a switch that (Washington) turns on and that's just scary. There's a sustained intensity even in casual mode, like a panther. If it's turned against you, you're going to be in a bad place."

Surprisingly, Washington says he "didn't really watch" the original TV series and wasn't drawn to it because of the show - rather it was Fuqua and the script that convinced him: "The title doesn't mean anything to me. It's the material. It's a classic story, the innocent girl »

Disney Chief On "Star Wars" Budget, Dates

13 hours ago

Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn is in London this week to talk to J.J. Abrams about "Star Wars Episode VII," but before he left he spoke with Bloomberg News about the upcoming sequel.

First up, Horn says that despite the planned December opening of 'Episode VII,' the studio isn't beholden to that release date and subsequent films could come out in the month of May when 'Wars' films have traditionally been released:

"We're not sure yet. We may revert -- the Star Wars dates have been May -- and we may revert to that at some point. But it depends on the readiness of the screenplays and where we are. But this first one will be December 18th of 2015. So we'll start with that and then we'll see."

Horn re-confirms the script is ready and confirmed there was filming in Abu Dhabi last week, however that was only second unit shooting. »

"Trek" & "Transformers" Scribes To Split

13 hours ago

Love them or loathe them, Hollywood blockbuster screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have decided to professionally separate.

The pair got started writing on TV with "Hercules" and "Alias" before transitioning to film a decade ago. On screen they've mostly been known for their collaborations with J.J. Abrams and Michael Bay.

While most of the films they have written have been big box-office winners, quality wise they've varied considerably. Their strongest work to date has included the "Star Trek" reboot, the first "Transformers," and TV series like "Fringe" and "Sleepy Hollow".

They also penned "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "The Island," "Cowboys and Aliens," "The Legend of Zorro," "Mission Impossible III" and served as producers on movies like "Now You See Me," "Eagle Eye," "The Proposal" and "Ender's Game".

The parting is said to be amicable and the TV side of their production company K/O Paper Products will remain intact. »

Aronofsky's "Noah" Proves A Big Global Hit

13 hours ago

While some right-wing critics spoke out against it, most film reviewers warmed to Darren Aronofsky's "Noah". So have audiences it would seem.

Paramount and New Regency's costly $125 million biblical epic "Noah" has now sailed past the $300 million mark at the worldwide box office. Even more surprising? More than two-thirds of that total is from overseas where faith-based films often fare poorly.

The biggest Bible-based film before this, "The Passion of the Christ," earned $370 million of its $610 million domestically. Smaller faith-based films like "Son of God" and "Soul Surfer" earned only $3 million each outside North America.

"Noah" is already the fourth highest grossing film of the year and Aronofsky's top-grossing film to date. It has also done particularly well in Russia, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, the U.K. and Australia.

Brief "Bad Boys 3," "National Treasure 3" Updates

23 hours ago

The movie business is driven by "what's hot" at present, often to the detriment of other projects. Appearing at WonderCon over the weekend, producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed to Collider that it is this flighty, zeitgeist-obsessed nature of studio executives which is the main reason why we haven't had a third "Bad Boys" movie yet:

"It's so funny because we'll get Sony real excited to make the movie, and then Will [Smith] is off doing two movies. And then, Will will come back and be real excited about it, and Sony will say, 'Well, maybe it's not the time for this.' And then, Ride Along came out and was a big hit, and now they're all excited to make the movie, but Will is off doing something else. It's just trying to get everybody together to make it. But, we're working on the script. We have a lot of faith and hope that we'll do it. »

"Thrones" Author On Controversial Rape Scene

23 hours ago

Spoilers Ahead For "Game Of Thrones" S4 E3 Episode: "Breaker Of Chains"

There has been a lot of debate over the past day over the scene in this past sunday's "Game of Thrones" in which Jaime Lannister rapes his twin sister and lover Cersei beside the corpse of their dead child. Much of the debate hasn't been about what's shown but rather the implication of the scene and its difference to the book.

In the book, the scene is clearer that the act ultimately turns consensual. On the screen, the dialogue of the scene indicates rape, the body language isn't so clear cut as Cersei seemingly kisses Jaime one second then struggles to get free the next. There's also the issue the two characters are in a different place in their relationship in the book than they are in the show.

Adding to the confusion? The episode's director Alex Graves who, »

"Walking Dead" Could Go For A Decade?

21 April 2014 9:38 PM, PDT

Scott Gimple, current show runner on AMC's "The Walking Dad," has suggested the high-rating genre series which recently wrapped its fourth season, could go on for a decade if not longer.

Talking with Larry King and answering fan-submitted questions, the topic of the show's longevity and eventual end came up. Gimple says:

"As a TV show, all TV shows end, but I will say, I think it's possible that it could go on and on and on. I think if it went ten years, if it went longer than that, it's possible that the cast - considering the amount of deaths on this cast and everything else - after ten, twelve years, it could shift into a whole new cast."

Gimple also spoke about upcoming events in the fifth season. He says he expects fan-favorite character Daryl to find romance sometime in the future, and that there will be another »

Will J. Jonah Be In "Amazing Spider-Man 3"?

21 April 2014 9:36 PM, PDT

One character that hasn't made the transition to "The Amazing Spider-Man" franchise from the previous Sam Raimi films is that of The Daily Bugle editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson.

Though Jameson is mentioned in the sequel, it's unclear if he'll make an appearance in the future. As part of a recent Google Hangout session, director Marc Webb was asked if he would pop up in future films. Webb says:

"I like the idea very much of him coming up in the next film. It was more easy to accept a new Spider-Man than someone who could out do J.K. Simmons in that role, he is so iconic. That's something we've really talked about. Obviously I love that character because he poses such an interesting dilemma for Spider-Man. The answer is I don't know, but I think you can expect to see him in the future."

Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle is in early talks to direct the Steve Jobs biopic at Sony Pictures.

Boyle would take over from David Fincher who had been in talks but ultimately passed. Fincher was said to want Christian Bale for the role of the late Apple mogul.

Scott Rudin is producing. DiCaprio's next film, "The Revenant," begins filming in September.

Director On Disturbing "Thrones" Sex Scene

21 April 2014 10:39 AM, PDT

Spoilers Ahead For "Game Of Thrones" S4 E3 Episode: "Breaker Of Chains"

Last night's third episode of the fourth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones" had some scenes that will be talked about, such as a wilding attack in which a young boy watches his slain mother and father being cut up for cannibals.

Yet it is one disturbing scene in particular that is drawing quite a bit of notice for both its shock value and its departure from the books.

The act in question? Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) rapes his grieving sister and lover Cersei (Lena Headey) in a sept (basically a church) right next to the body of their dead son Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) lying on an altar. It wasn't on top of the corpse, but it looked like it could have gone that way at one point.

The scene in question is in the books, but on »
