I still haven’t seen Independence Day: Resurgence, and there’s a good chance I won’t. When 20th Century Fox made the decision not to screen the film for Us press in advance of the film’s opening, they sent a very clear message to anyone paying attention, and it’s a message that I believe more and more studios would love to send to critics, especially on their giant event films: not only do we not need you, but we don’t want you. At all. And it’s true. Studios don’t really need to screen movies for critics. It’s a professional agreement that we all participate in, but more and more often, studios screen later and almost begrudgingly. I am amazed how many times this year alone I’ve had to basically beg to even find out when or if a screening is happening. The »

Axel Foley will return! A fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie has been in various stages of development for years. First as a movie with Brett Ratner that never happened, then as a TV show with Axel Foley's son that wasn't picked up, then back to a big-screen sequel a few years ago. After bringing on the writers of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have...

It looks like Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer are having another crack at Beverly Hills Cop 4. Following numerous attempts to bring a third sequel to the screen, and a TV series too (it was shelved following the pilot), it seems that Bruckheimer and co. have tapped Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to direct the fourth instalment in the series.
El Arbi and Fallah are responsible for the drama Black, which won the Discovery Award at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Bruckheimer, who will produce the new movie, was impressed by the film, and has set them to work on the film, which will be based on a screenplay by writers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. According to Deadline, the story will bring Eddie Murphy’s street smart cop character Axel Foley back to his Detroit origins.
It looks like production will kick off very soon, with the trade blog reporting that it could go before cameras before the end of the year, or in the early part of 2017.
Beverly Hills Cop was released in 1984 with the first sequel, directed by Tony Scott hitting screens five years later. John Landis directed the third film in the series, set in a fictional theme park, which was released in 1994.
More news on the fourth movie as it comes in.

It looks like the delays that have hit Beverly Hills Cop 4 have come to an end, as Paramount Pictures is finally in a position to move the movie forward again on the film. Some 20 years after the underwhelming Beverly Hills Cop 3, the fourth instalment in the series will indeed see Eddie Murphy returning as Axel Foley, perhaps his most famous movie role.
The film had been originally due in cinemas on March 25th 2016, a date Paramount announced back in 2014, when Brett Ratner was set to direct. But that date came and went without a frame of footage being shot, and now we learn that Ratner is no longer directing. Instead, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Paramount have hired Belgian helmers El Arbi and Fallah to take the project forward.
They’re the pair who have helmed acclaimed drama Black, that proved a success at last year’s Toronto Film Festival.
Beverly Hills Cop 4 had been working from a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. Whether that screenplay remains in place is thus far unclear. But at least with new directors on board, there should be a fresh impetus behind the movie.
When we have a new release date for the film, we’ll pass it your way…
Axel Foley will return! A fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie has been in various stages of development for years. First as a movie with Brett Ratner that never happened, then as a TV show with Axel Foley's son that wasn't picked up. Then back to a big-screen sequel a few years ago, with piece by piece slowly being filled. After bringing on the writers of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie, Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec, Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have handed the franchise's directorial reigns to newcomers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, a Belgian duo whose recent film Black did relatively well on the festival circuit last year. No release date set, but they're aiming to start production later this...

Gotta love Hollywood, where certain projects never die. It's been 22 years since Beverly Hill Cops III hit the big screen, and since then, rumors of a fourth one have been non-stop, albeit fruitless. A couple years ago, they went so far as to create a TV pilot that starred Eddie Murphy, but at the end of the day, the network felt that unless Murphy's role was recurring, they weren't going to follow through with a full series.
"They had this little knob that you turn [during test screenings] if you like it or you don’t like it," Murphy told Playboy last year. "So when Axel shows up in the pilot, some people turned the knob so much, they broke it. So the network decided 'if he isn’t recurring, then this isn’t gonna happen.' So it didn’t happen."
So in one fell swoop, the TV show disappeared. But it seems like they haven't given up on a fourth film, and have even gone so far as to hire a directing duo, Deadline reports.
According to the outlet, Paramount has hired Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, who are best known for their film Black. The pair had met with Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and had a youthful energy Murphy and Bruckheimer felt the fourth film in a franchise needed. Arbi and Fallah will be directing a script written by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec, which promises to bring back Murphy's character Axel Foley and be as gritty and irreverent as the original.
While this film is sure to be a big step up from the directors in terms of budget, it's worth checking out the trailer to Black just to see what they're capable of. Have a look below!

If all would have went according to Paramount's original plan, fans would have already seen Beverly Hills Cop 4 in theaters, since the studio set a March 25, 2016 release date for the long-awaited sequel back in 2014. However, last May, the studio pulled the movie from its 2016 slot, where it would have faced the superhero blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it could continue developing the sequel, which has Eddie Murphy set to return as Axel Foley. Today we finally have a new update on Beverly Hills Cop 4, with the studio bringing aboard filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Black) to direct.
Deadline reports that producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Eddie Murphy have been diligently developing the script by Andre Nemec and Josh Appelbaum (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows). When they met with Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, they learned how important the Beverly Hills Cop franchise truly was to the filmmakers. This project would mark a huge step up for the them, whose last project Black won the Discovery Award at last year's Toronto International Film Festival.
While no story details have been confirmed yet, we reported back in 2014 that the sequel was set to be shot in Detroit, to take advantage of a $13.5 million tax rebate. This new report claims the story will bring Axel Foley back to his Detroit origins, with the studio hoping to start production either later this year or in early 2017. Paramount hasn't set a release date at this time, but it's possible the sequel could be ready for release in late 2017, if everything goes according to plan.
The story reportedly is set during the worst winter on record in Detroit, with the studio still planning on shooting in and around the Detroit area. It isn't known if there are plans to bring back original Beverly Hills Cop stars Judge Reinhold, John Ashton or Paul Reiser for the sequel, but now that the sequel finally has directors on board, hopefully we'll hear more about this sequel soon. The first three Beverly Hills Cop movies have taken in over $735 million worldwide, with the first movie's $234.7 domestic take holding the record for decades as the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time, before The Hangover broke that mark with $277.3 million in 2009.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah made their directorial debut in 2014 with Image, which they followed up last year with Black, neither of which have been distributed in the U.S. quite yet. Brett Ratner was once attached to direct this sequel, but it isn't known if he will stay on as a producer or not. We'll be sure to keep you posted with more updates on Beverly Hills Cop 4 as soon as more information comes in. »
Axel Foley is headed back to Detroit, it seems. Deadline is reporting today that Beverly Hills Cop 4 is officially back on again at Paramount, after electing new directors in Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.
It’s certainly the most promising news to emerge from the action-comedy sequel in some time, particularly after it was delayed indefinitely at the studio last year. Now, Paramount has pumped fresh blood into the dormant Beverly Hills Cop series, entrusting relative newcomers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah with the keys to the cult franchise.
And we do mean newcomers. As Deadline notes, the Belgian writer-directors broke onto the scene with Image and later edgy thriller Black, the latter of which bagged El Arbi and Fallah the Discovery Award at last year’s Toronto Film Festival.
It was enough to pique the attention of both Eddie Murphy and longtime producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who reportedly showered praise on Black when it premiered late last year. Despite some early apprehension, Murphy is on board to reprise his role as the gun-toting, irreverent Axel Foley, and by plucking El Arbi and Fallah, the actor has ensured the up-and-coming Belgian filmmakers are headed straight into big-budget production with Beverly Hills Cop 4. But will it prove to be a gamble that pays off?
So, there you have it: Beverly Hills Cop 4 has recruited new Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to pump a healthy dose of “youthful energy” into its dormant actioner. There’s currently no mention of when the sequel will step before the cameras, but we’ll let you know when we hear more. »

Jerry Bruckheimer is producing as he did on the first two “Beverly Hills Cop” films, which were released in 1984 and 1987. “Beverly Hills Cop III” was released in 1994. The three films grossed a combined $735 million worldwide.
The hiring of El Arbi and Fallah — directors of the award-winning drama “Black” — comes more than a year after Paramount had pulled the fourth installment of the franchise out of its March 25, 2016, release date. At that point, Brett Ratner had been attached to direct from a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) with a story centering around Murphy’s Axel Foley character returning to his native Detroit.
“Black” won the Discovery Award at the Toronto Film Festival last year. It centers on a 15-year-old girl in a gang in Brussels who must choose between loyalty and love when she falls for a Moroccan boy from a rival gang. Martha Canga Antonio and Aboubakr Bensaihi starred.
Variety‘s Peter Debruge called “Black” a “powerhouse” and said in his review: “The first of its kind in Belgian cinema, this easily exportable, minority-driven drama has the potential to launch the careers of its young directors and cast, driving its star-crossed ‘West Side Story’ formula into the 21st century.”
El Arbi and Fallah are both of Moroccan heritage who directed the short film “Broeders” and the feature “Image.” They are repped by CAA, Management 360 and Belgian agent Ken Lambrechts. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

We all have favorite movies. No matter how our tastes might grow or change over the years, we all love certain films more than others. It might be the story, it might be the feelings that a particular film evokes as it relates to our lives, it might be a score that we just can't get out of our heads. Whatever the reason may be, we love things because we love them and that is just the way it is.
Usually, the reason we fall in love with a particular film is the performance by an actor. We bring our own thoughts, values and ideas »
Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

This article contains spoilers for Cobra. We suspect we're the only website to have written those words in recent times....
Had Sylvester Stallone had his way, the now cult classic Beverly Hills Cop would have been a much different film. Before Eddie Murphy was cast in the role that would define his acting career, the part of Axel Foley was offered to Sly. Yet the Italian Stallion had other ideas in mind for what he wanted the film to be, so he took it upon himself to rewrite the script, moulding it to suit his strengths as a white-knuckled mortal terminator. As screenwriter Daniel Petrie Jr told us last year, whilst it was "considered a coup to have written a script to attract »
