Sorry Channing Tatum Lovers, Paramount Moves 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' to 2013

23 May 2012 2:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Well it looks like Channing Tatum will have to save something for 2013.  The rising star has already appeared in three movies this year -- "Haywire," "The Vow" and "21 Jump Street" -- with another film, the stripper drama "Magic Mike," due out in June.  He'll have to settle for four major releases, however, because Paramount said Wednesday that it is pushing back the opening of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" from this summer to next year. It will now be released in 3D, which, thanks to its higher ticket prices, should goose grosses.  In »

'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' pushed to 2013, will be converted to 3-D

23 May 2012 2:34 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Just over a month before its original premiere date of June 29, Paramount Pictures has pushed G.I. Joe: Retaliation to March 29, 2013, in order to convert the film into 3-D, EW has confirmed. (Deadline first broke the story.)

Starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Bruce Willis, and Channing Tatum, the sequel just had a splashy showcase at the movie exhibitor confab CinemaCon, and posters for the film have been appearing in movie theaters for weeks (although the film is touted only as “Coming Soon,” with no release date listed). The decision to push the film was reportedly driven in part to shore up its foreign box office profile, »

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Gets Majorly Delayed

23 May 2012 2:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In just five blink-and-miss-'em weeks, you were supposed to be watching G.I. Joe: Retaliation in an air-conditioned theater with a gargantuan soda. Now you need new plans, because in a last-minute bid to add a third dimension to the Dwayne Johnson/Channing Tatum vehicle, Paramount is scooching Retaliation way over to March 29, 2013. “We’re going to do a conscientious 3-D job because we’ve seen how it can better box office internationally,” an exec tells Deadline. Honesty hurts. »

Jim Parsons Comes Out as Gay

23 May 2012 2:12 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jim Parsons has skipped the "I'M Gay!" magazine cover approach to coming out: Far down in a New York Times profile Wednesday was the subtle mention that the two-time Emmy winner has been in a same-sex relationship for a decade. The blink-and-you'll miss it aside appeared in a story about Parsons' starring stint in the Broadway production of "Harvey."

Adam Lambert earns first No. 1 on The Billboard 200

23 May 2012 2:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One American Idol replaces another at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, as Adam Lambert’s “Trespassing” bows at the summit while Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” falls No. 1 to No. 3. It’s Lambert’s first No. 1 album after his debut studio set “For Your Entertainment” made it to No. 3 in 2009 with 198,000 copies. However, “Trespassing” moved only 77,000 copies, the smallest sum for a No. 1-scoring album since Adele’s “21” held onto the penthouse with 76,000 back in August 2011. Funny enough, “21” is right behind Lambert at No. 2, with 63,000 copies (a 38% decrease in sales). Underwood’s »

Updated 'GI Joe: Retaliation' moving to March 2013

23 May 2012 2:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Updated (7:07 Pm): Taking advantage of the "G.I. Joe: Retaliation " release-date switch, Universal has now slated Seth MacFarlane's "Ted" in the vacated June 29 slot, moving it up from its originally-planned July 13 release date, according to Deadline.

Original Story: Well, you can cross one movie off your Summer 2012 must-see list. "GI Joe: Retaliation," originally scheduled to open June 29, now won't hit theaters until next March. The reason for the 9-month move? Paramount executives, no doubt eying the big box office numbers for the »

23 May 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 2011-12 network TV season officially ends tonight at 11, right after the closing credits for "Revenge" and "Law & Order: Svu" have rolled. So for the next few months, the television business goes all "Freaky Friday," as the broadcast networks trot out their secondary programming — reality shows, imports and other low-cost series — while cable breaks out some of its biggest guns. Tomorrow, for instance, brings the return of "So You Think You Can Dance" to Fox, and the debut of yet another singing competition show, "Duets," on ABC, as well as the third season premiere of ABC's cheap »

Chernobyl Diaries Writer Oren Peli on Why He Set a Horror Movie at a Nuclear Disaster Site and Radioactive Terrors

23 May 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Oren Peli directed the breakout horror hit Paranormal Activity in 2007, he had virtually no filmmaking experience, having come from a software programming background. Since then, however, the Israeli-born Peli has quickly become a horror-movie machine, producing (and occasionally writing) the Paranormal Activity sequels, the James Wan chiller Insidious, and now, The Chernobyl Diaries. Chernobyl is about a group of young Euro travelers who take a trip to the abandoned Ukrainian town of Pripyat (where the 1986 Chernobyl disaster took place) and are pursued by what appears to be an entire ecosystem of radioactive, man-eating things. While it’s directed by Bradley Parker, Peli says he and producing partner Brian Witten were also involved heavily in the making of the film. Peli recently spoke to us about his decision to set a horror film at Chernobyl, how he gets such naturalistic performances out of his actors, and why the new »

Giving Character Actors Their Due

23 May 2012 1:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Years ago, I came up with a TV concept for an awards show called "The Character Actor Awards." Why honor character actors? Because they are tried and true, immensely talented actors who, time and again, give the most memorable performances yet never get the accolades they deserve.  I liked the idea of finally having overly praised A-listers pass the baton to the podium and give character actors one night in the spotlight. Character actors have mantles too, after all. I spent months researching and preparing my pitch for this show, but I »

The Hard Truths Behind Dan Harmon’s Community Ousting

23 May 2012 1:41 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's been nearly 100 hours since the news broke that Community creator Dan Harmon had been fired from his show. Harmon quickly posted a note to his blog explaining his understanding of the situation, while fans — many of them in the media — began a relentless assault on NBC and the show's production company, Sony, for even considering the idea of producing the show without its creative soul. "Down with the suits!" was the traditional, inevitable reaction: Harmon is an auteur who from the beginning was the guiding vision of the show, and he quickly became the off-camera face of Community. To acolytes of the sitcom, firing him was heresy. However, as much as we may love Harmon's work on Community, it is our journalistic duty to take a clear-headed, unbiased look at just what went into a decision that left so many people Chang-ry and dean-sappointed.

Apart from her country music career, Julianne Hough has built a reputation for showing up in musical films lately, including “Burlesque” with Christina Aguilera and the “Footloose” remake. Of course, the convincing powers of co-starring in a flick with Tom Cruise didn’t hurt to say “yes” to one more, now with cinematic adaptation of Broadway show “Rock of Ages.”  Hough will hit the stage, the Sunset Strip and the stripper pole for her role as Sherrie in the film, due in theaters June 15, with other co-stars like Paul Giamatti, Diego Boneta, Alec Baldwin and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Paramount Bumps 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' to 2013

Paramount is moving G.I Joe: Retaliation from June 29 to next year, setting a date of March 29, 2013. At the same time, it’s converting the movie to 3D. Paramount sources say that for the studio to recoup its sizable investment -- it financed 50 percent of the sequel, while MGM put up 25 percent and David Ellison’s Skydance Productions is backing 25 percent -- a 3D conversion needs to happen, and it wants to make sure the conversion is done right. The studio is pointing to the recent 3D version of James Cameron’s Titanic as a success story. Photos: 28

An Illinois judge has approved an $18.5 million settlement for woman who was critically injured during production of Paramount's Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Gabriella Cedillo, 26, was among a group of extras driving in an uninhabited portion of Hammond, Ind. in September 2010 during production of the Michael Bay-directed blockbuster, which went on to gross more than $1 billion in 2011. A cable pulling a stunt car apparently snapped and crashed through the windshield of her car.

Shadow of the Colossus Lands Chronicle Director Josh Trank

23 May 2012 1:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Shadow of the Colossus is a 2005 video game with a premise that tends to go, "You just fight all these huuuuge bosses the size of like, planets and skyscrapers — but it's really artsy." (Non-gamers: It's what you saw Adam Sandler playing all through his 2007 Bob Dylan lookalike film Reign Over Me. No? Still nothing?) Now it's being adapted into a major production by Sony Pictures, who have tapped Josh Trank, the director behind this year's low-budget found-footage superhero flick Chronicle. Deadline reports Trank, a longtime fan of the game, pursued the project and that he has "become the go to guy for big popcorn pictures," as he's already developing a new Fantastic Four and a Spider-Man villain spinoff about Venom. In a description of the game, Deadline notes the objective is to "slay sixteen colossi," which is super fun to read. »
