New Release Date Announced for The Mummy Reboot

18 minutes ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Yesterday we reported that The Mummy reboot was finally starting to emerge from its cinematic tomb with a new director, Alex Kurtzman, announced at the helm. Originally slated to come out in theaters on April 22nd, 2016, Universal Pictures has already revealed a new release date for the upcoming Mummy movie that will have fans waiting just a bit longer to see this monster in action.

Deadline reveals that The Mummy reboot will now hit cinemas on June 26th, 2016. Since the release has only been delayed by about two months, there shouldn’t be any major holdbacks in production.

The reason for the move comes from another big Universal property: The Huntsman, the prequel to 2012′s Snow White and the Huntsman that will be directed by Frank Darabont (showrunner on Season 1 of The Walking Dead, director of The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption), who also wrote the latest version of »

The Huntsman Prequel Set For April 2016; The Mummy Moves to June

29 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I never saw Snow White and the Huntsman, it just didn't seem like my thing.  Which makes it kind of hard for me to be interested in a followup or spin-off aside from the fact that one of my favorite directors, Frank Darabont, will be helming it (he also did the newest draft of the script).  But it's coming anyway, and now we get the news that this new film, called The Huntsman, is actually a prequel (which makes more sense).  And yes, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron will be returning (although Kristen Stewart won't).  The new film hits on April 22nd, 2016. Yesterday we also got the news that Alex Kurtzman would be directing The Mummy reboot, part of a larger cinematic universe for Universal.  That film has now moved to get out of The Huntsman's way and will come out on June 24th, 2016.  Hit the jump for more on »

'Snow White and the Huntsman' prequel has release date but no Kristen Stewart

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Snow White may be out of the picture, but "The Huntsman" is ready to return in 2016. The prequel will take place before 2012’s "Snow White and the Huntsman" and will reveal how Eric (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) first crossed paths. Kristen Stewart, who played Snow White in the first film, won't be returning. Universal has announced that "The Huntsman" will open April 22, 2016, which will push the studio's reboot of "The Mummy" to Jun 24 of that year. For the prequel, "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders is being replaced by Frank Darabont, the Oscar-nominated helmer of "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile," who was also the original showrunner on "The Walking Dead." Darabont is also re-writing the screenplay, originally written by Craig Mazin and Evan Spiliotopoulos. Joe Roth ("Maleficent," "Alice in Wonderland") will once again produce. Summer 2016 is filling up fast, although there are no other major films yet »

E.T. goes bad in trailer for alien shocker 'Extraterrestrial'

30 July 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“Keep watching the skies!” warned Douglas Spencer’s reporter at the end of the 1951 science-fiction classic The Thing From Another World. More than 60 years on, that remains good advice for characters in alien-themed horror movies such as the Tribeca-screened Extraterrestrial. This third film from directors the Vicious Brothers (Grave Encounters) details a weekend getaway by five college friends which goes horribly awry when aliens invade.

Extraterrestrial stars Brittany Allen (The Rocker), Freddie Stroma (the Harry Potter franchise), Jesse Moss (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil), Anja Savcic (I Love You, Beth Cooper), Melanie Papalia (Smiley), and Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption, Ally McBeal »

Title teaser for Warcraft, plus Sdcc footage description

26 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This afternoon, Legendary Pictures took the opportunity to showcase director Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) showcased footage from his forthcoming fantasy epic Warcraft, and while that footage probably won’t see the light of day online, Legendary has released an incredibly brief title teaser video, which you can watch here…

And via Screen Rant, here’s a brief description of the footage that was shown today:

The Warcraft teaser that followed was narrated by both a human and an Orc from the film (each seemed to be reading from their war diaries), indicating that the movie will very much examine what leads to the conflict between the two races from both of their perspectives (think Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). Most of the footage was focused on depicting the various environments and landscapes of Azeroth, there was also some material teasing actual battle sequences involving the two clans. »

Love “The Shawshank Redemption?” Love the sound of Morgan Freeman‘s voice? Love (or hate) LeBron James? Then you'll love comedian Frank Caliendo doing his best Freeman impression while reading James’ letter to fans announcing his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

See video: Morgan Freeman Says Not to Make Race A ‘Bigger Issue Than It Needs to Be’ Lines like “my relationship with northeast Ohio was bigger than basketball” have never sounded so convincing.   »

24 July 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This may not be the most exciting thing to come out of San Diego Comic-Con today, but the official logo for Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft adaptation has been revealed. The logo was on display at the Legendary Pictures booth, along with some weaponry. Take a look at the logo here…

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

14 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

The Flash Finds It's Simon Stagg In William Sadler; Could We See Metamorpho?

12 July 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It looks as if William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, Iron Man 3) has joined the second episode of CW's The Flash, as wealthy buisnessman Simon Stagg. Back in comics history, Simon ties into Rex Mason, who becomes the shapeshifter Metamorpho. We already have Katana cast into season 3 of Arrow, so could we possibly get comics team The Outsiders? It's a stretch, but it's possible! Comment below and give us your thoughts on the matter! The Flash set dec. pic.twitter.com/EyYMgxqeeQ — William Sadler (@Wm_Sadler) July 12, 2014 Simon Stagg is the unscrupulous owner and CEO of Stagg Enterprises and the father of Sapphire Stagg.

Previous | Image 1 of 4 | Next Morgan Freeman honored by the Gene Siskel Film Center, June 7th, 2014.

Chicago – The sonorous and familiar voice of Morgan Freeman was in Chicago on June 7th, 2014, as the Gene Siskel Film Center presented “A Candid Conversation with Morgan Freeman” to benefit the theater.

Kevin Smith says the Weinsteins passed on 'Clerks 3,' still plans to make it

8 July 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Kevin Smith has been working hard on Clerks 3 for a couple years now, although the project has transformed from a potential Broadway stage experience to a potential old-fashioned movie film for theaters. Smith also initially mused that Clerks 3 would be his last movie–an announcement which, following to the Soderbergh Rule of Auteur Retirement, precipitated a creative period during which Smith claims to have finished five scripts.

There were some theories that the Clerks threequel would be finished in time for the 20th anniversary of the original film, which arrived in theaters in October 1994 (the same month as Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption). However, »

10 Best Prison Break Movies and Scenes

8 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Who doesn't love a good prison break? I was thinking about it recently and realized some of my favorite movies involve prison breaks. This year alone there were two movies that I saw that featured brilliant prison break scenes. If I ever get thrown into jail, the first thing I'm going to do is start plotting my escape! I'll want a good story to tell people. 

I came up with a list of ten movies that included kick-ass prison break scenes. No matter what kind of prision a person is in, I imagine it's hell. Sure, some are worse than others, but I imagine anyone that ever been thrown in one can't wait to get out. There is a point for many of these characters where they ain't got nothin' to loose, so escaping become their only option. If I ever do have to break out of a prison these »

'Forrest Gump' turns 20: The movie's secret best moments

6 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s strange to feel sheepish about loving a film that won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture—a critical and commercial smash that earned nearly $700 million at the global box office and has been chosen for preservation in the National Film Archive.

And yet: Exactly two decades after its release, calling Forrest Gump one of your favorite movies is an act bound to raise eyebrows, provided you’re talking to anyone who fancies herself a film buff. Most anti-Gumpers resent the movie more for what it isn’t than what it is; as they’ll be the first to remind you, »

10 Fun Facts about Stand By Me

2 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I recently watched Rob Reiner's classic film Stand By Me for the thousandth time, and it was just as enjoyable as the first time I saw it. The movie is based on a short story by Stephen King called The Body, and it turned out to be such an incredible film that has become a timeless classic. I have yet to meet someone that hasn't liked it. 

I've been having fun doing these little top 10 trivia posts, as I always seem to learn a few things I never knew before about the films that I love to watch. So here's a top 10 list of fun facts that you may or may not already know about Stand By Me.

Kiefer Sutherland claimed in an interview that in one of the locations of the film, a Renaissance Fair was being held and the cast and crew attended and bought some cookies. »

Film Industry's List of 100 Favorite Films in The Hollywood Reporter Is Same Old Story

30 June 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This week, The Hollywood Reporter published a list of Hollywood's 100 favorite films, according to 2,120 film industry insiders that included actors, writers, directors, agents and executives. Unsurprisingly, there are no surprises here. It's the same old poll we've seen time and again, as in AFI's 100 Years 100 Movies list, with "Citizen Kane" again topping the chart (it was recently dethroned by "Vertigo" in Sight and Sound's top 50 movies poll). While "The Shawshank Redemption" (number four) and "Forrest Gump" (number 14) are good films that duked it out for Best Picture in 1995, they're too high on this list. Is the white male demo, likely the bulk of THR's participants, patting itself on the back here? Criticwire took the poll to task in a recent post outlining the galling dearth of documentaries, foreign films, films by women and films from non-white directors. The prevalence of these arbitrary top 100 lists seems to be bullying, to »

Frank Darabont in talks to direct 'Snow White and the Huntsman 2'

27 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Deadline reports Frank Darabont is in final talks to direct Snow White and the Huntsman 2.

The site notes, however, that Darabont has a version of the story that would focus exclusively on the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth), and it’s not even known if Snow White (Kristen Stewart) would return for the sequel of sorts. (Might it be called The Search for Snow?) Reps for Universal and Darabont didn’t immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

Darabont previously was an executive producer of The Walking Dead and directed The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, among other films. »
