Idol Recap: Minne(apolis) Pooper

21 January 2015 6:32 PM, PST | | See recent news »

True confession: I may be the only person in the United States who dramatically slid down a wall and let out a tortured “Nooooooo!!!!” after learning that American Idol will eventually cut back to one night a week midway through Season 14.

After three consecutive hump days of middling vocals, “heard it all before” backstories and not nearly enough scenes of Ryan Seacrest getting bear-hugged by jubilant families, however, I’m reconsidering my stance.

Perhaps, in a world where orange is the new black and Idris Elba could/should be the next 007, less is destined to be the new more »

Independence Day 2: new story and character rumours

20 January 2015 10:35 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2 is set for a summer 2016 release - and we've got some clues as to what's going to happen...

This post may, inevitably, have what turn out to be some spoilers for Independence Day 2 in it.

Director Roland Emmerich starts shooting the long, long mooted sequel to Independence Day this year, with Independence Day 2 mooted for a summer 2016 release.

Thus far, most of the recent chatter about the project has been to do with the casting of it, specifically that Will Smith won't be returning to the lead role. But over at Film Divider, a few other details about the film have come to light.

It reports that the focus will once again be on "different small groups in their separate, awful situations", and that amongst the characters returning for the new movie will be those played by Judd Hirsch, Vivica A Fox and - of course - Jeff Goldblum. »

Eastwood’s Fistful Of Dollars: ‘Sniper’s Cume At $110.4M – 4-Day Actuals

20 January 2015 3:48 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

6th Update, Tuesday, 3 Pm: Rentrak Theatrical filed the weekend’s actuals with Warner Bros.’ American Sniper counting a four-week cume through yesterday of $110.4M. Talk about the spoils of war: American Sniper propelled the 2015 box office, in its first 19 days, 3.6% percent over the same frame last year with $667M. It stands to reason that this would be the highest-grossing four-day Mlk weekend of all-time with $248.5M after American Sniper broke a slew of records, read Eastwood’s career-high bow, best three-day opening ever during January and February. Previous Mlk record was 2009 with $231.5M when Sony comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop zoomed up a four-day bow of $39.2M. American Sniper had the biggest theater average of the four-day weekend with $30,100, followed by Sony Classic’s Still Alice, which chalked up $20,685 PTA or $248K in 12 venues.

The consensus is that American Sniper is going to hold for another two weekends. Wide releases »

Roland Emmerich gay rights drama gets int’l deal

19 January 2015 2:49 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Goldcrest nabs rights to Stonewall starring Jeremy Irvine ahead of Efm.

UK sales outfit Goldcrest Films has nabbed international rights to Roland Emmerich’s gay rights drama Stonewall, starring Jeremy Irvine, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King.

Warner Bros previously acquired rights in Germany while a Us deal is understood to be in the works.

Currently in post-production, Stonewall recreates the events that culminated in the riots outside the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, in June 1969. The events are considered by many as a turning point in the gay rights movement.

Irvine plays Danny Winters, a young man who is kicked out of his home by his parents and flees to New York where, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of local drag queens, gays, lesbians and everything in between: the Mafia-run Stonewall Inn.

There he meets the suave Trevor (Meyers), but catches »

14 movie sequels stuck in development hell

12 January 2015 3:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Twins sequel Triplets gets delayed, here are other big name sequels struggling to get going - from Top Gun 2 to Die Hard 6...

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.

With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)


What is it?

The long-belated sequel to Arnold Schwarzenegger-Danny DeVito comedy Twins, with the wheeze this time being Eddie Murphy reportedly joining the cast as »

The Purge 3 Confirmed For 2016

8 January 2015 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The hiatus between films will be slightly longer this time, but to nobody's great surprise The Purge 3 was announced as heading our way last autumn. Series writer/director James Demonaco will once again be calling all the shots from his bunker at Blumhouse, and the film now has a release date of July 1, 2016.That date, you'll notice, is Independence Day weekend: a mischievously appropriate slot for a series that satirises America as savagely as The Purge has so far. Should you be unaware by this point, the high concept is one night a year when Us citizens can legally indulge their gun-nut bloodlust with a spree of consequence-free mayhem, up to and including murder. The tradition was inaugurated as a measure to reduce crime the rest of the year, by the mysterious and sinister governmental New Founding Fathers.A lot of people miss the joke in that set-up, but »

Attention Citizens: 'The Purge 3' Won't Arrive Until Summer 2016

8 January 2015 4:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

For the past two years, we've seen The Purge and The Purge: Anarchy, but this year we'll get a break from the annual night when all crime is legal. Though last fall brought news that The Purge 3 was definitely going to happen with James DeMonaco writing and directing again, Ben Fritz of The Wall Street Journal posted news on Twitter that the sequel wouldn't arrive until July 1st, 2016. That's the best release date the franchise has received so far. The first film debuted on June 7th, 2013 and the second got a later summer release on July 18th, 2014. But that Independence Day weekend should prove to be a big one for The Purge. In addition, it should make the marketing department excited to unload a shitload of satirical American propaganda as they've done previously (remember their teaser poster for the sequel was one of my favorite posters of 2014). Right now, »
