New Release Date for Underworld: Blood Wars

1 July 2016 6:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Kate Beckinsale's return as Selene in Underworld: Blood Wars will now take place in the winter rather than the fall.

According to Box Office Mojo, Underworld: Blood Wars will be released by Screen Gems on January 6th, 2017. The film was previously slated to come out on October 14th, 2016.

A Lakeshore Entertainment film, Underworld: Blood Wars stars Beckinsale back in her role as the highly skilled vampire Selene, with Theo James once again playing David and Charles Dance returning as the vampire elder Thomas. Bradley James (Damien, iZombie) also plays a key role in the fifth Underworld film, which is directed by Anna Foerster from a screenplay by Cory Goodman (The Last Witch Hunter, Priest):

"Theo James (The Divergent Series) returns as Selene’s ally David, reprising the role he played in Underworld: Awakening. British actors Tobias Menzies (“Outlander”, “Rome”) and Lara Pulver (“Sherlock”) take on the respective roles »

Horror Sequel Underworld: Blood Wars Pushed Back To 2017

1 July 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kate Beckinsale’s triumphant return as Selene has been postponed, now that Screen Gems has opted to nudge Underworld: Blood Wars back three months and into 2017.

Once on course to scurry into theaters in time for October 14, 2016, the horror sequel (franchise revival?) has now been delayed until January 6, 2017.

Beckinsale is in line to return as the famed Vampire Death Dealer for the franchise’s fifth installment, rubbing shoulders with Divergent breakout Theo James as they navigate the historic battle between vampires and werewolves. Last time we saw the actress take point as the series’ badass lead she had reached the ripe old age of 632. That was Underworld: Awakening in 2012, though Screen Gems will surely be aiming for a more effective sequel in time for 2017.

This time around, it is Anna Foerster who will call the shots from behind the lens. Best known for helming episodes of Criminal Minds and Outlander, »

Underworld 5 Delayed Until Early 2017

30 June 2016 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, Screen Gems released the first teaser poster for Underworld Blood Wars, although it didn't featuring returning star Kate Beckinsale or any of the other cast members. Since the release date had already been set for October 14, most assumed that the first trailer was just around the corner, but the studio still hasn't released any footage as of yet. Today we found out why, with Screen Gems officially pushing the movie from October 14, 2016 to January 6, 2017.

Variety reported on the release date shift, but there was no reason given for why the date was pushed into 2017. In its new date on January 6, 2017, Underworld 5 will be going up against The Weinstein Company's Amityville: The Awakening, starring Bella Thorne and Universal Pictures' Mena, starring Tom Cruise. The first weekend of January is typically quite slow at the box office, but that could change next year, with three high-profile projects hitting theaters. »

Independence Day 2 and 2016's underperforming sequels

28 June 2016 5:38 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A spluttering opening weekend makes Independence Day 2 the latest sequel to underperform in 2016. Ryan wonders what's going on...

By and large, critics didn't really like Independence Day: Resurgence. But then again, they didn't much care for 2012. Or The Day After Tomorrow. Or White House Down. Or pretty much any of the big, glossy entertainments director Roland Emmerich has brought us over the course of his long career. As Emmerich recently said himself, "If you went by the critics, I shouldn't make movies."

But as Michael Bay knows only too well, critical notices don't sell tickets, and Emmerich's films reliably sell at the box office. Away from the smaller-scale passion projects like Anonymous and Stonewall, Emmerich's effects-led disaster-adventure movies have made millions, even when their aggregate scores on Rotten Tomatoes have struggled to pass the 50 percent mark. So what's going on with Independence Day: Resurgence? Domestically, the invasion »

3 Reasons Why ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Bombed at the U.S. Box Office

27 June 2016 10:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Independence Day: Resurgence” didn’t set off any early fireworks at the U.S. box office over the weekend. The sequel to the 1996 hit (the highest-grossing movie of its year) only opened with $41.6 million. To put things into perspective, the original “Independence Day” kicked off to $50.2 million, back when tickets were less than half of what they are priced at now. But executives at Fox might not be sweating too much, since “Resurgence” (which cost $165 million) did much better internationally with a tally of $102.1 million abroad. In China, it scored an impressive $37.3 million debut.

Still, it’s troubling for Hollywood that the sequel named after a patriotic summer holiday wouldn’t generate more interest among U.S. ticket buyers. Here are three reasons why “Resurgence” suffered at home.

Independence Day: Resurgence underwhelms at the box office

27 June 2016 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have had a positive review from us here at Flickering Myth, but the domestic performance of Roland Emmerich’s big budget sci-fi sequel Independence Day: Resurgence is nothing to boast about.

Opening on over 4,000 screens, Independece Day: Resurgence earned an estimated $41.6 million, placing it second behind the animated behemoth Finding Dory. With a rumoured production budget of $165 million, this is not a great opening and 20th Century Fox would have been hoping for better news.

Its CinemaScore of B- means Independence Day: Resurgence could struggle to earn $100 million domestically.

The film also opened in 57 other territories, including the UK, Korea, Mexico and Taiwan bringing its worldwide total to $143 million. Though it is slightly better news, the movie only earned $37 million in China, the second largest market (and soon to be largest).

Independence Day: Resurgence – Review

26 June 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Roland Emmerich. This guy has been working his butt off making predominantly intense and pretty good fare out of screenplays that were either flat-out bad or at least flawed in a way that actually mattered. The Day After Tomorrow, 2012and White House Down are all bad screenplays full of unsubtle and sometimes offensive stereotypes and material, but all move over into the realm of fun, at least because Emmerich is too talented of a director to let us criticize them. He knows what he’s doing and intelligently plays on the emotions instead of bombarding them. This is the case with Independence Day: Resurgence.

Resurgence picks up twenty years after the first Independence Day and follows many of the same characters as they, yet again, attempt to stop and survive an alien invasion. The plotting on display here is sloppy and doesn’t feel quite as »

Director Roland Emmerich says Independence Day 3 would be “an intergalactic journey”

26 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Be warned. The following post contains spoilers for Independence Day: Resurgence

After a disappointing weekend at the Us box office, a sequel to Independence Day: Resurgence is already looking unlikely, but, if the international numbers come in stronger than expected, all hope is not lost yet. At the very least, one person is preparing for that scenario, as director of both 1996’s Independence Day and Resurgence, Roland Emmerich, teased what audiences can expect from a third film in the franchise during a recent interview with Empire.

On his plans for Independence Day 3, Emmerich told the outlet, “The next one will be an intergalactic journey. It’ll be [set] maybe a year or two later, not 20 years [on]. I want to maintain this group of people, especially the young characters, and Jeff [Goldblum] and Brent [Spiner] will take part in it. It’ll be fun to keep that group together. I imagine them now »

Roland Emmerich’s next sci-fi Moonfall lands at Universal

25 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from destroying the world again with Independence Day: Resurgence, Roland Emmerich will be at it once more with next project Moonfall, with Deadline reporting that Universal has snapped up his spec script for a seven-figure sum.

Written by Emmerich, his regular collaborator and destroyer of worlds Harald Kloser, and Spencer Cohen (Extinction), Moonfall “is best described as Emmerich’s 2012 mashed together with Close Encounters of the Third Kind, following an unlikely band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth.”

In addition to co-writing, Emmerich will direct the film and produce with Kloser, marking their seventh film together after The Day After Tomorrow, 10,000 BC, 2012, Anonymous, White House Down and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Box Office Preview: ‘Finding Dory’ Will Drown Out ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

24 June 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

$200-million sequel “Independence Day: Resurgence” (20th Century Fox), among the most expensive summer 2016 releases, will test the idea that the public demands something new in a sequel in order to rush out to see it.

With the studio largely skipping pre-release screenings for domestic critics (London reviews were mixed), Fox is banking that two-decade-plus memories of the first film (whose star Will Smith did not return) and selling a surplus of action, effects and 3D beyond what was available in 1996 would give it life.

The first version was the biggest film of 1996, with an adjusted domestic gross of $594 million off a $97 million opening. That made it the fifth-ranked gross of the 90s, and until now was one of the few live-action blockbusters of recent years to lack a sequel.

Director Roland Emmerich went on to further success: six films with domestic grosses, again adjusted, over $100 million, led by “The Day After Tomorrow” and “Godzilla. »

Emmerich's Next To Be Sci-Fi Epic "Moonfall"

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Just as his "Independence Day: Resurgence" hits cinemas, filmmaker Roland Emmerich is setting up another sci-fi event feature with the spec script "Moonfall" being picked up by Universal Pictures.

Emmerich, Harald Kloser ("The Day After Tomorrow") and Spencer Cohen ("Extinction") penned the script about a band of misfits who must unite to save humanity when the moon falls out of orbit and hurtles towards earth. The film is described as "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind" meets "2012".

The picture will be fast-tracked to serve as Emmerich's next directing effort and he will also produce the film with Kloser.

Roland Emmerich to Direct Sci-Fi Film ‘Moonfall’ for Universal

24 June 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just as “Independence Day: Resurgence” hits theaters, director Roland Emmerich has his next project lined up.

Variety has confirmed that Universal acquired the sci-fi spec “Moonfall,” which Emmerich wrote in 2012 with Harald Kloser and Spencer Cohen.

Sony Pictures was also in the running for the pic, which Emmerich will direct as well as produce with Kloser.

“Moonfall” is about a group of people who must save the earth when, as the title would imply, the moon falls out of orbit and hurdles toward earth.

Emmerich and Kloser have previously collaborated on films including “The Day After Tomorrow,” “10,000 BC,” “2012,” “Anonymous,” “White House Down,” and most recently, “Independence Day: Resurgence.”

With “Moonfall,” Emmerich stays in his wheelhouse of directing science fiction epics. “Independence Day: Resurgence” has been forecast for an opening weekend of $50 million at 4,068 locations. The original opened two decades ago with a then-massive $50 million domestically on its way to a $306 million U. »

Roland Emmerich Pushes Back Against ‘Stonewall’ Whitewashing Accusations, Calling the Riots ‘A White Event’

23 June 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Roland Emmerich is best known for directing blockbuster fare — “The Patriot,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “Independence Day” and its “Resurgent” sequel opening tomorrow — but the fact that an action maestro decided to tackle a movie like “Stonewall” wasn’t the most surprising part of last year’s dramatization of the Lgbt riots from 1969. Rather, it was the perception that Emmerich had whitewashed an important cultural event by focusing on a white male. The filmmaker has pushed back against that accusation in a new Guardian interview, asserting that “Stonewall was a white event.”

How actors are told they’re being killed off in Game of Thrones – exclusive interview

21 June 2016 1:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This article contains spoilers for Season 6 of Game of Thrones

During Flickering Myth’s chat with DeObia Oparei about Independence Day: Resurgence, the actor’s previous role before the science fiction blockbuster came up: Areo Hotah in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones.

Despite being a narrative presence in the book, the character was somewhat sidelined for the television adaptation. And just the week before we spoke, Hotah had been unceremoniously killed off at the beginning of Season 6.

“Yeah, I was disappointed,” Oparei revealed. “I didn’t expect that. I kind of heard about it a few months before we started shooting season 6. And, of course, I’d read the books, and Areo is quite a presence in the books, so I was expecting that to follow through. But also I think it’s really difficult to bring a whole new clan in a story that’s five seasons in, »

Exclusive: Alien 3 set was “very, very tense,” reveals actor DeObia Oparei

21 June 2016 1:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During Flickering Myth’s chat with DeObia Oparei about Independence Day: Resurgence, the actor’s onscreen debut came up: another science fiction movie, Alien 3.

The 1992 film’s production was marred by frequent clashes between first-time feature director David Fincher and the ever-present 20th Century Fox’s studio executives on set.

“I think it was quite a tense set,” Opearei remembered. “I mean, that was my first film and I was quite young – about 21 or 22 – and suddenly I’m in the middle of this huge movie, and I think Sigourney Weaver said that was the first time that she was not just the star in it, but one of the producers of it, too. And it was David Fincher’s first film. He’d just done a music video. I think he’d just come off of one of Madonna’s videos. I think that was his first feature. So »

New clip from Independence Day: Resurgence is ‘Bigger Than the Last One’

20 June 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Independence Day: Resurgence set for release on Friday (and our review coming once the embargo is up in a few hours), 20th Century Fox has released a new clip from the sci-fi blockbuster sequel entitled ‘Bigger Than the Last One’.

We always knew they were coming back. After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

It was quite a surprise when it was announced that Brent Spiner would be returning as Dr. Brackish Okun for Independence Day: Resurgence, given that it appeared he died in the original 1996 movie. However, 20th Century Fox has now released a new promo video profiling the character, and explaining that he was left in a catatonic state after the events in Area 51, but has now awoken from his coma.

Roland Emmerich: ‘I like to say I was driven out of Germany by the critics’

As the globe-trashing director returns with a sequel to Independence Day, how did his brand of blockbuster become the norm?

Related: Independence Day: Resurgence trailer gambles on revisit

Roland Emmerich may be the planet’s greatest demolition man. The German director reduced the White House into a pile of smoking ashes in 1996 in the most enduring image from alien-invasion epic Independence Day. Two years later, in his Godzilla remake, he flattened entire stretches of Manhattan. He froze and drowned most of America’s east coast in 2004’s The Day After Tomorrow and, in the catastrophe nightmare vision that was 2012 (released in 2009), he unleashed a series of earthquakes and volcanos that effectively ended the world.
