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

2 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

2 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s the last weekend of August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is at an end. But there’s still plenty of cool stuff coming to our theaters this year, from James Bond to Star Wars and everything in between. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi film from director Ridley Scott.

Premise: A manned mission to Mars goes awry, and astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on the planet by his crew. Watney fights to survive in the harsh environment and to signal to others that he is still alive. Upon discovering Watney’s signal Nasa, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.

My take: English filmmaker Ridley Scott has had a good relationship with science-fiction. The two films that helped put him on »

In Real World, 'Compton' Not (Anytime Soon) to Break Record as Highest-Grossing Domestic Hit Directed by Black Filmmaker

5 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Straight Outta Compton' poster. Weekend box office: 'Straight Outta Compton' to beat weak competitors, but still far from being top blockbuster directed by black filmmaker If you thought last weekend was bad at the U.S. and Canada box office, you should see what's in store for this weekend, Aug. 28-30, '15. For starters, only one movie, F. Gary Gray's sleeper hit Straight Outta Compton, is expected to earn more than $10 million. The rest – and that includes Zac Efron, Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan, and the Power of (Christian) Prayer – will perform quite powerlessly indeed. In case Straight Outta Compton reaches the box office gurus' estimated $15 million, it will get close to the $140 million mark. Bear in mind there's no guarantee that will happen; despite basically no competition, the drop-off rate of Gray's hip hopping film was steeper than expected last weekend. Now, some have reported that the N.W.A. biopic »

'Oh Heavenly Dog' Remake Planned, Will Benji Return?

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 1980 Chevy Chase comedy Oh! Heavenly Dog is getting the remake treatment at Fox 2000, with the studio hiring Tim Hill (Hop) to direct. The filmmaker will also co-write the script with Dave Johnson. Temple Hill, the production company behind the young adult franchise The Maze Runner, are producing. The original movie was set up as a starring vehicle for Chevy Chase and his canine co-star Benji, who were equally popular back when the film was made, with the comedy existing solely on the box office draw of its marquee names.

The story centered on a private investigator (Chevy Chase) who is stabbed to death after discovering a dead body. It is decided that he won't go to Heaven or Hell, but instead is sent back to Earth as a dog, tasked with solving his own murder. The original comedy movie also starred Jane Seymour, Omar Sharif and Robert Morley. The dog was played by Benjean, »

Are 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Box Office Predictions Too High?

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The buzz swirling around Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been insanely high ever since the project was first announced way back in October 2012, after Disney purchased LucasFilm. With a new trailer arriving sometime this fall, the buzz will only keep growing, with some box office analysts already predicting huge opening weekend numbers months before the sequel hits theaters on December 18. Deadline reports that some analysts are predicting a $615 million worldwide opening weekend, which would shatter a box office record that was just set a few months ago.

Universal Pictures' Jurassic World broke a number of box office records back in June, taking in $208.8 million domestically and $315.3 million internationally in its opening weekend, for a worldwide haul of $524.4 million. All three of those figures set new records, but if these new predictions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are accurate, those records may not stand for long. »

Star Wars: Rogue One May Shoot Using Panavision 70 For Ultra-Widescreen Experience

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the lesser-known quirks about the recent teaser trailer for The Force Awakens is that the clip utilizes Instagram’s new-fangled landscape orientation feature that prevents videos from being cut off at the seams. A welcome addition, then, particularly if the Star Wars Instagram feed becomes a bastion of super-short teases for upcoming films.

Looking beyond J.J. Abrams’ sequel, though, and we arrive at the beginning of Disney’s much-hyped Anthology series with Gareth EdwardsStar Wars: Rogue One. Centering on a group of rogue Rebels, the standalone feature will have the motley crew attempt to steal the coveted Death Star plans from beneath the nose of the Empire. But how about the prospect of seeing the galactic heist on the biggest format possible? Well, we just might.

'Rogue One' to Be First 'Star Wars' Movie Shot in 70Mm?

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Quentin Tarantino is bringing back an old school cinematic format for his upcoming Western The Hateful Eight. He shot his latest movie on 65mm film using the classic Panavision lenses in the widest aspect ratio of 2.76:1. This marks the first anamorphic 70mm theatrical release in nearly 50 years. But it might not be the last. A new rumor claims that director Gareth Edwards is utilizing a similar technique on the upcoming LucasFilm spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The Ultra Panavision 70 anamorphic lenses were created specifically for The Hateful Eight. And Quentin Tarantino himself is overseeing the installation of more than fifty 70mm projectors in theaters across the United States for the film's limited Christmas Day release, before it goes wider in January playing in digital theaters. It makes sense that other productions would begin to utilize this format, otherwise all of that hardware is going to go to waste. »
