The Purge 4: The fourth installment of the Purge series is on its way. James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the first three installments, including The Purge: Election Year (above), will write the screenplay but will not direct. Combined, the low-budget movies have earned more than $300 million at the box office worldwide. The next, not yet titled installment is set for release on Independence Day weekend in 2018. [Variety] The Batman: Recently, we heard that Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, above) was in early talks to direct The Batman, a solo movie set to star Ben Affleck.

All crime will once again be legal for 12 hours, as Deadline reports that a fourth installment in the Purge franchise is happening and Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes have already added it to their release schedule.
The Purge 4 (which is currently known as the untitled Next Purge Chapter) has received a fitting July 4th, 2018 release date. For Americans, they’ll be able to celebrate Independence Day by watching people murder each other onscreen in the name of freedom.
Franchise creator James DeMonaco won’t be returning to direct, but he will, in fact, be on scripting duties again; reportedly, he’ll work with producers in finding a person to helm the next chapter.
Now that a fourth entry in the Purge series is definitely on its way, like a bevy of horror franchises from Friday the 13th to Saw, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight, »

James DeMonaco, who helmed the previous two films, will return as writer. Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum, Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, and DeMonaco’s longtime production partner, Sebastien K. Lemercier will produce.
Plot details are unknown at this time as DeMonaco will work closely with the team to find a new director. Previous installments were set in the near future where the government, in order to bring down crime, created one day a year where all crime was legal including murder and labeled the event, “The Purge.”
“The Purge: Election Year” starring Frank Grillo and Elizabeth Mitchell, became the highest grossing film in the series last summer, bringing in $118 million worldwide. It is unknown if previous cast members will return to the series.

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name, the forthcoming USA Network drama (premiere date Tba) follows a young mother (Biel) who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence — and, to her horror, has no idea why. Bill Pullman (Independence Day) co-stars as the investigator hellbent on trying to uncover a possibly buried motive and, along the way, discovers violent secrets from her past. »
Growing up in the 1990s, there certainly wasn’t a lack of big budget tentpole films. We had movies like Jurassic Park, Terminator 2, Independence Day, Men in Black, The Matrix, and many other classics. Though while we may have had our fair share of blockbusters, they don’t compare to what we have today — in quantity or scale. We not only have well over a dozen of them a year, but they all have budgets that dwarf those from my heyday as a youngster (even when taking inflation into account). You can look at the current superhero boom, and it’s rare to find a film that has a budget under $150 million.
In this crowded ecosystem of superhero movies, 20th Century Fox will be letting not just one, but two films within the past year or so that go against the grain of “bigger and better.” Last year’s Deadpool »

Yep, yet another fleet of giant alien spaceships has Earth surrounded, but Denis Villeneuve’s movie is not your garden variety invasion fantasy. Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner have a limited time to figure out how to communcate with alien creatures whose intentions are a complete unknown. It’s a rare sci-fi thriller that succeeds on a personal and emotional level — while teaching us how to converse in coffee stain hieroglyphics.

The Super Bowl is always known for its hilarious commercials and amazing football action, but lately movies have gotten into the habit of releasing big trailers during the big game. Michael Bay's latest Transformers movie will be part of what looks to be a massive movie lineup for Super Bowl Li. In anticipation for its grand arrival, check out a shorter version of the Super Bowl spot for Transformers 5.
Unfortunately, there isn't much context in this short commercial. All we know is that once again the world is in trouble and some Independence Day Resurgance-esque alien ship will be entering our atmosphere. Plus, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime will have a climactic battle that will include a hammer.

Few characters have enjoyed as much reinvention as Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth Sherlock Holmes, an enduring icon who is as much bound up with the history of cinema (and indeed stage, TV and radio) as he is with literature. Indeed, adaptations of Holmes stories stretch right the way back to the earliest days of film at the start of the 20th century. Fittingly enough given Holmes' penchant for a violin serenade, the musical scores to his adventures are as richly varied as the outcomes to his mysteries are unexpected. Here are Holmes' musical highlights, from Buster Keaton through to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Dhruva Natchathiram got revived recently with Gautham Menon updating about the project. As reported earlier, Vikram is playing the lead and it has been said that Anu Emmanuel is doing an important role in the film.
The latest we hear on this project is that Gautham Menon was in Dubai recently to do the shopping for Vikram’s costumes in the film. Uthara Menon, Gautham’s sister is the costume designer for Dhruva Natchathiram and apparently she had also accompanied her brother to shop for Vikram’s attires. It is said that the film will be released for the Independence Day weekend »
Disney’s live-action Dumbo remake may have found its star, with Deadline reporting that Will Smith is in talks to appear in the Tim Burton-directed film. Announced last year, the movie is just the latest in Disney’s recent line of real-world recreations of its animation classics, including The Jungle Book, Cinderella, Maleficent, and this year’s upcoming Beauty And The Beast.
It’s not clear what role Smith would be playing in the film, or what sorts of mean-spirited, big-ear-related jokes he might invite by doing so. The Men In Black star has been in something of a slump of late; he was praised for being one of the better parts of last summer’s Suicide Squad, but his latest, Collateral Beauty, earned a scowl from critics and a shrug at the box office. (Also, he died in the Independence Day universe, which has to feel pretty sad. »

Will Smith is a bit of a conundrum. He’s choosy, but sometimes the choices he makes can be head-scratching, or maybe he’s just had terrible luck. In retrospect, passing on “Independence Day: Resurgence” was a smart move, but he might’ve regretted turning down Quentin Tarantino for “Django Unchained.” As for “Suicide Squad,” sure, it made a lot of money, but it was widely thrashed by critics and Smith was one of the least memorable characters in it.

The Golden Globe awards are airing tonight on NBC, which in essence kicks off the annual awards season race celebrating the year's best movies. There is also another awards ceremony that hands out awards to the year's "worst" movies, the Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. the Razzies. While we'll likely have to wait a short while for the full nominations to be unveiled, the 2017 Razzies short list has been unveiled, and it seems that Warner Bros.' blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has found itself in almost every category.
The nominations short list was unveiled by a YouTube user dubbed "truthhopelove," who took a video showing an email he received which features the 2017 Razzie nominations short list. The email reveals that voting will close on January 16, although the nominations won't be released until a few days later. Traditionally, the Razzie nominations come one day before the Oscar nominations are announced, »
