Remember when movie sequels were rare, trilogies were reserved for a holy few, and franchises that extended on to five, six, or even seven movies were strictly the domain of slumming series like Police Academy or Nightmare on Elm Street? Cling to your memories, because your kids will find those stories awfully quaint in twenty years, when you’re taking them to the multiplex to decide between Iron Man 15 and the fourth series reboot of Spider-Man. These days, you’re nothing if you don’t have a megafranchise running in perpetuity, as evidenced by this week’s bonanza of sequel news: Paramount is moving ahead with sequels to World War Z and Jack Reacher, the new Terminator film has begun casting, Disney has acquired rights to future Indiana Jones movies, and Universal is working on a radical rewrite of the seventh Fast and Furious movie. But which studios have the »

Lee of course was filming Alex Proyas' 1994 feature "The Crow," based on the cult comic book from a few years earlier. Pre-production is now underway on the reboot with Welsh actor Luke Evans ("The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "Fast and Furious 6") playing the title role.
Asked by The Metro if he thought the new production was cursed, Evans says he doesn't believe in such things:
"I'm not one of those superstitious people. It is incredibly sad that Brandon died making the movie. He was a very talented actor. It is a very beautiful story, The Crow. It is a very tragic story with huge emotional themes. We plan to tell the story differently and with a lot of »

Detectives are investigating the scene of Paul Walker's death -- and it may take several months to determine the cause of the Nov. 30 accident that killed the Fast and Furious actor and friend Roger Rodas. The exact cause as to why the 2005 Porsche Carrera Gt that Rodas was driving careened out of control, may take another 90 days to confirm, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Detective Jeff Maag told the mag, "We’re creating a factual diagram -- mapping the scene. To the extent that we [...] »

Caesar is back - and he's ready for battle. Following yesterday's news that 20th Century Fox had moved "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" into "Fast and Furious 7's" likely-to-be-vacated July 11, 2014 release slot, the studio has dropped a teaser poster for the forthcoming sequel that will see motion-capture phenomenon Andy Serkis reprising his role as the leader of the ape uprising.

It could be another 90 days before authorities determine why a Porsche Carrera Gt careened out of control and plowed into three trees and a light pole on Nov. 30, killing Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas, a detective told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. Since the accident, reports have surfaced suggesting that the sports car, driven by Rodas with Walker in the passenger seat, was speeding at 90 miles per hour just ahead of a curve on a street in a business section of Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Los Angeles.

Paul Walker is being remembered by more than just his family and costars. His Jiu-Jitsu teacher Ricardo "Franjinha" Miller, who trained the late actor during the Fast and Furious franchise for nine years, has posted a heartfelt message about the star, and has given him an honorary black belt in memoriam. Walker and Miller first met in 2004 when Walker was 31. What started as just training led to a longtime bond and relationship between the two men, and between the actor and the Paragon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu [...] »
So sad. When Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash on Nov. 30, he left behind his brokenhearted teenage daughter, Meadow. Now, as authorities investigate the devastating crash that killed her father, Meadow has been spotted wearing Paul’s hat outside of their Santa Barbara, Calif. home.
Poor Meadow Walker. We can’t even begin to imagine what the 15-year-old is going through, but we’re not surprised to see that the brokenhearted teen has been spotted wearing Paul Walker‘s hat as she deals with her grief. Check out pics of Paul and the beautiful Meadow wearing the same trucker hat below.

All six of the New Releases that you may be drawn to in your favorite store or on your favorite service are movies, and all released in the last 18 months.

Fox Searchlight’s “12 Years a Slave” regains ground in the awards race with its four nominations for SAG Awards, while “August: Osage County,” “Dallas Buyers Club” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” boosted their Oscar stock with three noms apiece, including the key ensemble awards.
That’s a big pat on the back for “Osage” and “Butler,” which haven’t been prominent so far in awards voting, and is good news for them since SAG is a more reliable Oscar predictor than most.
Last year, four of the five ensemble nominees earned best-pic nominations. And as for wins, the ensemble prize predicted the eventual Oscar winner in five of the past eight years.
After being considered one of the two front-runners for Oscar, “12 Years »

Even though Twentieth Century Fox's sci-fi sequel 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is still 7 months away at least today it edges that little bit closer. The studio have set a 11 July 2014 release date, bringing the opening back by a full week. Not entirely sure why the move but it may have something to do with the recent production halt on James Wan's 'Fast and Furious 7', due to the sad and untimely death of star Paul Walker, which was originally slated for release on the 11th also. 'Dawn' will be helmed by Matt Reeves ('Let Me In') and stars Andy Serkis ('The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'), Jason Clarke ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Gary Oldman ('Bram Stoker's Dracula'), Keri Russell ('Dark Skies'), Toby Kebbell ('Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time'), Kodi Smit-McPhee »

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Walker family is now planning his funeral. TMZ reports that Walker's funeral will be kept private for his family members.

Washington, December 11: Paul Walker revealed in two weeks before his death that his life with his daughter Meadow was perfect.
The 40-year-old actor had said in an interview with Us Magazine that he is glad that he had her at the age of 25, as she is 15-years-old when he is 40 and they are matching up nicely.
Walker's daughter recently had moved from Hawaii to California to live with him.

In anticipation of Universal moving “Fast and Furious 7″ out of its summer slot, Fox has made a preemptive claim on the July 11, 2014 slot, moving up “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” from its original July 18 date.
Universal has yet to decide whether it will bump “Fast 7″ from summer 2014, though the film’s delayed production start following the death of star Paul Walker makes it unlikely that the film will be ready in time. The studio had no comment.
Fox, meanwhile, has been extremely aggressive with its “Planet of the Apes” re-booted franchise after the first film, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” became a surprise hit during late-summer 2011, grossing more than $480 million worldwide. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is being directed by Matt Reeves (“Let Me In”) and stars Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Andy Serkis.

Fox shifted on Tuesday the release date for “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” up a week, to July 11, 2014, the same date that “Fast and Furious 7” is currently scheduled to open. The summer 2014 corridor is crowded, and the move will give the sci-fi adventure an extra week to play before Paramount’s “Hercules” and Warner Bros.’ “Jupiter Ascending” open on July 25.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is looking to better position itself in the Summer by moving from July 18th to July 11th, the date currently held by Fast And Furious 7. But, despite the untimely death of star Paul Walker, Universal is not relinquishing that release date yet. Currently, Fast And Furious 7 is on indefinite hiatus as director James Wan and the studio try to figure out if the movie can be salvaged from what has already been filmed or if they will need to reshoot. With just 8 »

With the production on Fast and Furious 7 indefinitely on hold following the tragic death of Paul Walker, the ability of Universal Pictures and director James Wan to make the planned release date of July 11, 2014 is in question. Universal hasn't commented on whether they'll postpone the release of the seventh film of the blockbuster franchise, but it's likely given the circumstances and the fact filming wasn't completed at the time of Walker's death. Now 20th Century Fox has decided that July 11th date looks too good to pass up and has moved one of their big summer releases to that prime summer date.

Just two weeks before Paul Walker lost his life in a horrific car crash, I was fortunate enough to sit down with him to talk about his new film Hours, along with four other members of the press during a roundtable discussion. This would prove to be one of his last interviews.
On a personal note: As a film writer, I have never met an actor as kind and honest as Paul. He was really excited about this project, and talked to us with delight. No pretentious Hollywood bullshit… No hidden agenda… He was excited to be there, and talked as if we’d been old friends. He gave off a friendly, relaxed vibe that was certainly contagious. I think I can speak for Wamg when I say that we are deeply saddened by the loss of Paul Walker. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.
