Warner Bros. Pictures have announced that they have moved director Joe Wright’s action-adventure Pan from a summer July 24th release date to fall October 9th 2015. The press release was announced by President of Domestic Distribution, Dan Fellman, and President of International Distribution, Veronika Kwan Vanderberg.
“We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth.”
Kwan Vanderberg stated:
“Peter Pan is a beloved figure the world over, and the fall corridor is perfect for this epic adventure story that explores the origins of this young hero. In many markets we can take advantage of school holidays that ensure a greater »

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.
But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »
Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure Pan has been moved from its previous July 24th opening to fall and will begin its global launch with the new domestic release date of October 9, 2015.
In making the announcement, Fellman said, “We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense.

Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, the opening date of Warner Bros. Pictures' action adventure Pan has been moved to fall and will begin its global launch with the new domestic release date of October 9, 2015. The announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. Pan will now go up against Relativity's Kidnap and Universal's Steve Jobs on October 9. Here's what Dan Fellman had to say in a statement.
"We wanted to give Pan the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth."
Veronika Kwan Vandenberg added her own statement.
“Live from New York, it’s the Tribeca Film Festival.”
I’m sure that is how some people’s coverage of this year’s Tff started off. It makes sense considering the opening night film was a documentary about Saturday Night Live! Plus, some writers can’t help but resort to puns and cheap gimmicks to appear witty. Hell, I used it and haven’t even seen the film yet. But my TriBeCa experience didn’t start off with belly laughs. Instead it began with a double feature of films about shitty parents.
The Adderall Diaries stars James Franco as an author struggling with writer’s block, which could be the inspiration for my deconstruction of an opening to this recap. The film is based on the memoir of the same title by Stephen Elliott. Franco’s version of Elliott deals with drug addiction (mostly Adderall), a Bdsm fetish that could ruin a burgeoning relationship, »

It’s time for a new weekly series folks! Yes, starting today I want to try a new series on for size. Much like how I looked at the best winners in almost every Academy Award field, I want to now turn my attention towards individuals (specifically those active in the field), starting with cinematographers. Basically, this first one will look at the best Directors of Photography currently working in the business. There’s tons of amazing Dp’s in the industry so this is clearly going to be a divisive list. Still, that’s part of the fun of it as well! Hopefully you all enjoy and this becomes a weekly or at least monthly series… Before I get to the list, I’m going to quickly explain what will be happening below. In short, I’ll be listing ten Dp’s/cinematographers that I think are the best in the business right now. »

For the record, Rooney Mara didn.t initially believe she could play Tiger Lily in a Peter Pan movie, either. Shortly after it was announced that the star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo would play Tiger Lily for director Joe Wright in a Peter Pan prequel, internet outrage (whether real or imagined) erupted on the usual chats and forums. There was even a petition to get Mara replaced. The actress understood. until she met with Wright and learned about his vision. "I feel like there really hasn.t been a proper interpretation of the character," Mara told us when we visited the set of Pan last year. We talked at length about her trepidation to play a character that she "always thought of as a Native American." But long conversations with her director . who she was anxious to collaborate with . and readings of Jason Fuchs. screenplay showed Mara »
Adapted from the true story “A Long Way Home,” Rooney Mara (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) joins Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge!) and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) in the cast, which also includes India’s best actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Priyanka Bose, and Deepti Naval.
The film is co-financed by Screen Australia and will be distributed worldwide by The Weinstein Company, excluding New Zealand and Australia, which Transmission Films will cover.
Netflix has acquired world rights to the comedy, which has plans for a 2016 launch.

Soviet thriller Child 44 continues the trend of actors putting on funny voices to play foreigners. Why can’t they keep their mouths shut?
It remains to be seen whether Tom Rob Smith’s trilogy of thrillers set in postwar Soviet Russia ever becomes a full trilogy of movies. My suspicion says no. Like many modern movie trilogies, Smith’s series of novels falls off depressingly in its second and third instalments, though each is adorned with striking sequences and moments of power and horror. I suspect that, as with the David Fincher version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, we shall just see the opener, Child 44.

Despite gaining plenty of critical acclaim and taking in a healthy $233 million worldwide in 2011, there hasn't been any movement lately on a sequel to David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The project was based on the first of author Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy books, which were followed by The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. There has been plenty of talk over the past few years about whether or not The Girl Who Played with Fire would ever move forward, but now we have a new report from The Hollywood Reporter indicating the sequel may very well happen, although without director David Fincher.
The new interest in getting a sequel off the ground comes from the recent announcement that Knopf is publishing a new Millennium series novel entitled Spider's Web, written by David Lagercrantz. While this new entry was »
With Hollywood looking for franchises wherever it can find them, it seems mighty odd that The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, a highly successful novel with a film adaptation that had Rooney Mara, David Fincher, and James Friggin’ Bond attached, is not already swimming in sequels. The American version of Stieg Larsson’s novel wasn’t exactly a blockbuster, but it made $233 million worldwide on a $90 million budget. It seems like a no-brainer.
Now there’s talk from THR that a sequel could arrive soon enough, but Sony is debating the possibility of turning Larsson’s last two books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, into a single film. They may even lump in a new novel starring hacker Lisbeth Salander by David Lagercrantz called The Girl in the Spider’s Web. Larsson passed away in 2004, before the books were even »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has not yet given up hope of a sequel to David Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and is considering rounding out the trilogy by combining Stieg Larsson’s remaining two Millennium books, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest, into a single sequel, which would then be followed by an adaptation of the upcoming fourth book, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, penned by David Lagercrantz.
The U.S. version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo starred Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander and Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist, and was eyed as the first of a trilogy of film’s based on Larsson’s books, with Fincher aiming to shoot the two sequels back to back. However, progress seemed to stall, with Rooney Mara stating on several occasions that it looked »

It has been four years since David Fincher delivered what was supposed to be the first of at least three films based on Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy of books, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. But though there has been talk of developing a sequel, nothing has reached screens. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony is looking into ways to get back on track, including combining the other two books of Larsson’s initial run – The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest – into one movie. Part of the reason for the new impetus – and right now, it’s all still at the meetings and theory stage – is the publication of a fourth book featuring hacker Lisbeth Salander, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, which was written David Lagercrantz following Larsson's death in 2004 and looks set to kick Salander back into more public awareness. »
With a fourth instalment in the late Stieg Larsson's best-selling Millennium novel series on the way, attention has turned back towards its iconic hacker character Lisbeth Salander and her on screen future.
Though David Fincher's adaptation of the first novel "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" under performed, Sony Pictures has been pursuing the sequel slowly - keen on a follow-up so long as it can be done for a fraction of the $90 million budget Fincher did the first film on. Sony has already paid quite a bit for Steve Zaillian's script adaptation of the second book "The Girl Who Played with Fire".
Today though comes a report from THR that suggests there's talk of turning that second book and the third book "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" into one feature. Should that be a success then the new novel, "The Girl in the Spider's Web" penned by David Lagercrantz, »

A story published early this morning by The Hollywood Reporter asks the question, "Will New Dragon Tattoo Book Sequel Become a Moviec", and while I continually hope and pray the franchise isn't totally dead, no matter all the signs pointing to the contrary, I can't help but assume I will never see a sequel to David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or at least not one made the way I would like it to be -- Fincher back as director, Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig in the lead roles, and a budget and runtime that allow misfit hacker and ward-of-the-state Lisbeth Salander's stories to breathe. Back in February, Mara told E! Online the sequels are likely dead, telling the outlet, "I don't think it's going to happen. I'm sad never to do it again, but it just doesn't seem like it's in the cards." However, recently a »

David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo remake caused a stir when initially announced. Sony, who threw a sizeable budget at the movie, were hoping for a significant return on their investment. Bearing in mind the popularity of the Millennium series of novels on which it’s based, that assumption wasn’t unrealistic. But the end product still flopped at the box office, anyway.
In the four years since, much talk has been made out of the sequel, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and the possible threequel, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest. Even though the studio hired Steven Zaillian to write a screenplay for Fire in the recent past. it’s seemed as if the entire U.S. franchise was dead in the water.
That may have changed, however, in light of a new report from THR, who believe that the studio are still »

The likelihood of us getting a sequel to David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo had been reduced to almost non-existent but today a small glimmer of hope has emerged; it's not much, but I'll take it. The Hollywood Reporter tells us that thanks to the excitement surrounding the upcoming novel "The Girl in the Spider's Web", which is a continuation of the original Steig Larsson series, Sony has a renewed interest in proceeding with the »

Despite being based on a massively popular series of novels, David Fincher.s 2011 adaptation of Stieg Larsson.s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo underperformed. It still made $232 million worldwide, but expectations were through the roof. Since then, there.s been a great deal of talk about whether or not we.ll see the rest of the novels on screen, but now it looks like Sony has a plan in place. Hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander will be back on the page later this year, with author David Lagercrantz picking up the mantel of the Millennium series in the wake of Larsson.s death with The Girl in the Spider.s Web. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this new chapter figures into Sony.s strategy for the franchise. The current idea is to combine the second and third books.The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The »
