Blockbuster season is almost upon us, but what will next summer's big hitters be? Here's a roundup

Once upon a time, summer blockbuster season 2015 was set to be packed with the biggest collision of big franchises we'd ever seen together. However, one by one, lots of these films moved away to other dates. As such, you won't be seeing Star Wars: Episode VII, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Independence Day 2, Batman Vs Superman or Finding Dory in a cinema next summer.

But even with those films gone, there's still no shortage of huge movies battling for your cash in a year's time. And as is traditional for us at the start of summer blockbuster season, we've taken a look at what's coming up in 12 months' time.

We kick off at the start of April (although note that March has Kenneth Branagh’s live action Cinderella movie, »

26 March 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The collaborations between director Joe Wright and actress Keira Knightley haven't just been limited to the films they've made together ("Atonement," "Anna Karenina," "Pride & Prejudice"). For the past few years, the actress has been the face of Chanel, and right alongside her, Wright has been guiding the campaigns behind the camera. Now, a new ad created by the pair has dropped online. Titled "She's Not There," the minute long spot features Knightley in some futuristically retro nightclub making eyes at some dude, turning into a boxer (!?) and then randomly appearing in a motorboat on a riviera because fashion advertising. Yeah, have no idea what's going on here, but it looks glamorous, so mission accomplished we suppose. Watch below. [The Inspiration Room] »

Online Petition Launched To Protest Rooney Mara's Casting In Pan

20 March 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Let me say at the top: Rooney Mara is remarkable. She is a talented actress, gorgeous and mesmerizing onscreen. That doesn't mean she can't be miscast. And according to an online petition that's gaining momentum, she has been in Joe Wright's upcoming live-action Peter Pan origin story, Pan. This isn't the case of fanboys gone rabid like that whole Batfleck debacle. It's political to its core. Essentially, the petition presented by Kristi Arnold begs Warner Bros. outright "Stop Casting White Actors to Play People of Color!" If you'd asked me last month about Wright's track record on making impeccable film adaptations of beloved books, I'd tell you he could do no wrong. Atonement, Pride & Prejudice and Anna Karenina are each breathtaking, tonally faithful to their inspirations, poignant and totally gorgeous. So when word hit that he'd be helming Warner Bros' Pan, by the J.M. Barrie novel, I was positively »
