Stx Entertainment’s Vr division STXsurreal has announced that it has wrapped production on the live-action virtual reality series The Limit, which is written, produced and directed by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and stars Michelle Rodriguez (Furious 7).

“I’m a huge fan of Vr, and I started Double R Productions with Racer Max to create innovative content for the medium,” said Robert Rodriguez. “For us to be making our first project with Rick, Andy and the Surreal team is a great way to kick things off. And it was a thrill to be working with the awesome Michelle Rodriguez again in this exciting entertainment space.”

“The Limit first-of-its-kind kind series in a new format that delivers a blockbuster, lean-back cinematic experience that audiences can’t find anywhere else in the Vr marketplace right now,” added Rick Rey, Co-President of STXsurreal.

Aquaman Director Debunks Claims That A Trailer Is Imminent

Amid rumors that Warner Bros. was in the process of finalizing Aquaman‘s first teaser trailer, James Wan, the film’s director, has weighed in via Instagram to set the record straight.

Two days ago, an Instagram account under the name of Carlos Villalobos posted a shot of what we believed to be the Aquaman edit bay. In it, he alleged that Warner Bros. and James Wan were on the verge of unveiling some footage for what is, essentially, the only Dceu movie slated for release in 2018.

Turns out that’s not the case, as James Wan has taken to Instagram himself (h/t Heroic Hollywood) to debunk any and all rumors, as the person in question is seemingly not affiliated with Aquaman in any shape or form. Tread lightly, folks, because the Internet is dark and full of spoilers. It’s also teeming with false reports and misinformation, so

"Sword Art Online" Live-Action

Skydance Entertainment's live-action TV adaptation of Reki Kawahara's Japanese young adult novel series "Sword Art Online" (2009) has been sold to Netflix, according to pilot writer Laeta Kalogridis ("Alita: Battle Angel"):

"...in the year 2022, a 'virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing game' (''Vrmmorpg) called 'Sword Art Online' ('Sao') is released. With the 'NerveGear', a helmet that stimulates the user's five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds. Both the game and the NerveGear was created by 'Akihiko Kayaba'.

"10,000 players log into the Sao's mainframe cyberspace for the first time, only to discover that they are unable to log out. Kayaba appears and tells the players that they must beat all 100 floors of 'Aincrad', a steel castle which is the setting of Sao, if they wish to be free.

"Those who suffer in-game deaths or forcibly remove the NerveGear out-of-game will suffer real-life deaths.

Fox Gives Predator, Alita, and Death on the Nile New Release Dates

Fox has firmed up their release slate for 2018, official dating a big sequel for next year. The Predator and Alita: Battle Angel are two of the biggest releases on Fox's calendar for the year, but both have just been bumped back and will be coming out later than expected. On a more positive note, the sequel to Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile, which sees Kenneth Branagh return as both director and star, has been given a 2019 release date, which means the studio is keen on getting the next Agatha Christie adaptation going rather quickly.

Death on the Nile was announced not long after the release of Murder on the Orient Express last year. The new take on Agatha Christie's famous murder novel wound up being a rather sneaky hit at the box office, bringing in $349 million worldwide, working from a $55 million budget. That represents a nice return for Fox,

Fox Moves Release of James Cameron’s ‘Alita: Battle Angel’
Fox has moved the opening of James Cameron’s “Alita: Battle Angel” back five months from July 20 to Dec. 21.

Fox also announced Tuesday that it had swapped the dates for “The Predator” and “The Darkest Minds.” “The Predator” moved back six weeks to Sept. 14 and “The Darkest Minds” moved up to Aug. 3.

Fox bumps Alita: Battle Angel and Shane Black’s The Predator, while announcing Death on the Nile for 2019

It has taken decades to finally make it to the big-screen, but now you’re going to have to wait even longer to set your big eyes on the James Cameron produced, Robert Rodriguez directed science fiction epic, Alita: Battle Angel.

Fox have announced that the Japanese Manga adaptation will be pushed from its mid-July release to December 21st. The shift in date shouldn’t be too worrying for a film that requires a multitude of post-production SFX, but this move will put Alita: Battle Angel in direct competition with Aquaman, Bumblebee, and the Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly comedy Holmes and Watson. They’re all established brands, whereas the James Cameron pet-project is an ambitious sci-fi adapted from a cult source, and we all remember how well Ghost in the Shell fared.
