The Entourage movie has been given a new release date to avoid a clash with Jurassic World.
According to Deadline, the film will now make its North American debut on June 5, 2015, one week earlier than expected.
Following Hollywood star Vincent Chase and his friends, the film will act as a sequel to the TV show which ran from 2004 until 2011.
The TV show, which aired on HBO, was loosely based on Mark Wahlberg's early years in the movie business.
The Fargo actor has signed up for a follow-up to the 2003 festive comedy, and despite looking forward to filming, he isn't sure it will match the original.
"We're just waiting for a script," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're never gonna beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it halfway so we're waiting for something that's close enough.
"It'll do real well, I imagine, and people will say, 'Well, it wasn't as good as the first one' and we'll say, 'Yeah, we knew it wouldn't be', but I think it should be fun and I think people who liked [the first one] will enjoy it and hopefully we'll get it off."
It feels like we've been writing about a potential sequel to Bad Santa for a good few years now, without any sign of the film itself moving forward. It's become one of those projects that gets talked about, but is looking decreasingly likely to happen.
Speaking at Loyola Marymount University, Thornton said that "we're just waiting for a script", adding that "we're never going to beat the first one, but you got to get as close as you can. You can't just go and do it half way, so we're waiting for something that's close »
We reported in May 2013 that Entourage creator Doug Ellin has come aboard to write the script and possibly direct the sequel. Billy Bob Thornton revealed that they are still waiting for a script to come in, while admitting that the follow-up won't be as good as the first.
"We're just waiting for a script, you know? We're never gonna beat the first one but you got to get as close as you can. You just can't go and do it haflway so we're waiting for something that's close enough.

I liked Bad Santa when I saw it in 2003. I actually haven't seen it since then so I have no idea how it ages or holds up or any of that, but apparently there's an appetite for a sequel. Makes sense, I guess I'd probably check out Bad Santa 2 if it happens. A few years back Steve Pink was going to helm, but then those duties fell to Doug Ellin. Ellin is still busy wrapping up the artistic juggernaut of the Entourage movie, so even though there's a chance his Kubrickian penchant for perfection will keep him in the editing room for another few years on that project, one could also reasonably assume he'd make time for this sooner or later. If the script is good. That's what they're waiting on. Even though Billy Bob Thornton himself wisely admits there's no way they can top the first one (the »

2003’s debauched yuletide comedy, Bad Santa, dashed any misguided notions that those who dress up to play the jolly chap are without issues. Billy Bob Thornton’s take on the rotund fellow completely veered away from saccharine stereotypes of a happy man who only wants to deliver cheer to everyone. Instead, his store-front Santa was a drunken slob who chased women and shirked his duties whenever possible.
In short, it was brilliant, and thus, rumours began to circulate about a second trip in his kinky sleigh for Bad Santa 2. The latest news we’ve had on the project landed in May 2013, when Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink apparently vacated the director’s chair to make way for Entourage creator Doug Ellin. At the time, Ellin was also reported to be working on a re-write of Johnny Rosenthal’s original script, which brings us up to date with the status of the project. »

Welcome To Issue 67!
If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie/TV news, rumors, and speculation. Good week for a longview, new reader!
What an interesting few days it has been for comic book superhero movies and their intertwined universes.
First up, DC, who is making a valiant effort to be both the best and the worst of superhero TV right now (to be fair, they have more not-animated shows based on their properties), has apparently locked down a new prospective order for their cinematic universe and it’s next featured characters.
Press release it up!
Mad Men fans who miss their beloved Dawn — formerly secretary to Don Draper and Lou Avery, currently head of personnel at Sterling Cooper & Pryce — can now get their fix of actress Teyonah Parris, who plays the ever-patient ad-firm foot soldier, in a most unlikely milieu: inside the swanky Atlanta bachelor pad of fictitious NBA superstar Cam Calloway. Parris is co-starring on the new Starz comedy Survivor’s Remorse, which offers an Entourage-style peek inside the filthy-rich world of pro basketball. Parris plays Missy, the wife of Cam’s cousin/manager, with the same kind of insta-warmth that made Mad Men fans fall in love with her. Parris also stars in the Sundance hit Dear White People, which comes out October 17. In the midst of all this, Parris found a few minutes to talk to Vulture about LeBron James Mad Men’s costume department, and which member of the Survivor »

117 days after winning their second Stanley Cup in three years, the Staples Center's resident champions and Al Michaels’ favorite team, the L.A. Kings, have gotten even more posh. Beyond the chunky Tiffany-designed 2014 championship rings (“iced” out with 136 diamonds) and the celebrity following (Ray Romano, Cuba Gooding Jr., and “Entourage's” hockey documentarian Kevin Connolly filling opening night seats), a new exclusive enclave a few doors down from the row of suites where ICM and other industry cornerstones entertain clients was the other new addition as the team began its title defense on Wednesday night.

Going to the movies is expensive, and in this economy there’s less incentive than usual to make it to the multiplex just for a couple hours of entertainment, especially when so much of it is just reruns on the big screen (another Dracula, seriously?) — never mind all the other complaints you all have about the theatrical experience. The movies should be seen as a getaway from our troubles, just as they were for much of the Great Depression, but this time around we have so many other options to keep us distracted. Well, what if there was a movie playing in theaters for free? Yeah, you’ll still have to pay for a babysitter, gas, parking and concessions, if those things apply, but the main event costs you nothing on October 20th when you go out to see a bunch of new movies by Adam McKay (Anchorman), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Jon M.

Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, »

To describe the new Starz comedy "Survivor's Remorse" as "NBA Entourage" sounds at once accurate and dismissive. Accurate because it's a show about a twentysomething phenom sharing his fame and fortune with his closest friends and family, dismissive because the actual "Entourage" was pretty horrible by the end. But "Entourage" was entertaining before it became bloated and self-congratulatory and contemptuous of its own fans. And its laziness prevented it from thoroughly exploring all those questions about the intersection of family and celebrity, and of staying true to your roots even as you have the money and opportunity to do things you couldn't even dream of growing up. There's a ton of untapped potential in the idea, as demonstrated by the four episodes of "Survivor's Remorse" (it debuts tomorrow at 9 p.m.) that I've seen.
