Universal’s Kevin Grayson to Head Domestic Distribution for Robert Simonds’ Studio

16 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Simonds has tapped Universal Pictures executive Kevin Grayson to be domestic distribution president for the motion picture division of his new studio.

Grayson will join the company at the end of September, and is the latest high-profile hire for the as-yet unnamed company.

His appointment comes less than two weeks after Simonds brought on veteran executive Oren Aviv as the studio’s president and chief content officer. Aviv had been a marketing chief at 20th Century Fox and president of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production. Earlier this year, Simonds named former Viacom executive Thomas McGrath as the company’s chief operating officer.

Simonds is a veteran producer, whose credits include “The Waterboy,” “Cheaper by the Dozen,” “Just Married” and “The Pink Panther.”

The new venture is backed by Tpg Growth; Hony Capital, a private equity firm in China; the business interests of producer Gigi Pritzker through Dns Capital »

Hot Trailer: Netflix’s 3D Printing Docu ‘Print The Legend’

11 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: The 3D printing movement behind the computerized creation of everything from human organs to weapons is the subject of Netflix original documentary Print The Legend, which Netflix will release in theaters and via streaming this month. Co-directors Luiz Lopez and J. Clay Tweel and producer Seth Gordon (King of Kong, Horrible Bosses, The Identity Thief) nabbed a SXSW Special Jury Recognition Award for Editing & Storytelling this year for Print The Legend, which examines the visionaries spearheading the 21st century manufacturing movement, from start-ups like MakerBot and Formlabs to industry big leaguers Stratasys and 3D Systems. It also profiles controversial figures like Cody Wilson, the tech anarchist who was named “one of the most dangerous people in the world” when he released plans for 3D printing guns online last year.

Print The Legend is produced by Steven Klein and Chad Troutwine. Executive producers are Walter Kortschak and Mary Rohlich, and Andrew Kortschak is co-producer. »

4 September 2014 6:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The follow-up to the 2011 hit comedy Horrible Bosses reunites Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as everyone’s favorite working stiffs: Nick, Dale and Kurt.

Here’s a first look at the hilarious new trailer and poster for Horrible Bosses 2.

Jennifer Aniston and Oscar winner Jamie Foxx also reprise their Horrible Bosses starring roles, while Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) star as new adversaries standing between the guys and their dreams of success.

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business in Horrible Bosses 2. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company. »

Jason Bateman talks Tiff'sThis Is Where I Leave You

3 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ah, family. It’s the cement of civilization, the source of many people’s most reliable love, and the folks who have to take you in when no one else will.

And if families weren’t so serioulsy screwed up, Jason Bateman might not have a career.

The actor, who got his start as a child on such family-oriented series as "Little House on the Prairie," "Silver Spoons" and "Valerie," owes much of his adult success to playing Michael Bluth on the hit TV series "Arrested Development."  Bluth was one of the “sane, conservative, everyman, straight men that I always play,” says the 45-year-old actor. Often those straight men of his exist within a family of lunatics.

Since "Arrested Development," Bateman has played similar roles in films as diverse as Hancock, Juno, Couples Retreat, The Change-Up, The Switch and even the slapsticky Identity Thief, all of which placed him in some family-related, »

Final Scores: The Top 20 Summer Movies

1 September 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In many ways this was always going to be a ‘Marking Time’ summer. The hoopla of debuting blockbusters was constantly being eclipsed by breaking news about the big summer movies of 2015/16. With photos and plot details being drip-fed all summer from the sets of Star Wars: Episode VII, Avengers: Age of Ulton and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, it took a bit of effort to get genuinely excited about the upcoming fourth Transformers movie.

There was an orderly, uncontroversial tone to the summer line-up this year; everybody behaved as predicted. There were no Lone Rangers or John Carters; no Battleship-level disasters. The biggest disappointments of the season were probably Seth MacFarlane’s Ted follow-up, A Million Ways to Die in The West and the entirely unwanted Expendables 3 (which scraped back $27m; barely enough to cover the cod liver oil and Sanatogen allowance for the cast).

12 lessons we learned from 2014's summer movies

30 August 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What a summer at the movies! The galaxy got guarded. The future days went past, like some sort of extinct age. The planet of the apes stopped rising and started dawning. Our stars had a fault. And also: Lucy!

Hollywood had a rough season at the box office in summer 2014, with overall box-office receipts falling precipitously from last year’s flurry of mega-grossers. Going into this weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy, the highest-grossing film at the summer box-office, has earned about $256 million–which would have made it the fifth highest-grossing movie of summer 2013.

First Look at Paul Rudd in Ant-man

19 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.

From the Press Release

San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

‘Ant-Man’ Makes Some Interesting Casting Additions as Production Begins

18 August 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For months, the mystery of who would take the reigns from Edgar Wright and direct Ant-Man dominated all coverage of the Marvel flick. But ever since the baton was passed to Peyton Reed, focus has been able to switch back to the good ol’ casting frenzy. Today, Marvel sent out a press release announcing that production has officially started in San Francisco on the much-anticipated film. That in itself is exciting enough news, with Reed also tweeting “Let’S. Get. small.” early this morning. He’s a man with a plan, and it’s on a teensy tiny scale. Good things come in small packages, haven’t you heard? But the press release contained something even more amazing: a barrage of cast members to round out the film’s core ensemble. The new additions are Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Michael Pena (End of Watch), Abby Ryder Fortson (Togetherness »

Chris Hemsworth to Lead 'The Huntsman' Prequel for April 2016

31 July 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month came word that a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman was in the works with Frank Darabont behind the camera, but without Kristen Stewart in front of it. Instead, the follow-up at Universal Pictures was going to focus solely on Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman. Now we have confirmation from a press release by the studio that Darabont will definitely direct the film, simply titled The Huntsman, and the film will arrive on April 22nd, 2016. The film will be a prequel revealing "how the fates of two characters, The Huntsman Eric and Ravenna, intersected before they met Snow White." So there you go. Now we know why it was previously said that Charlize Theron might return, despite her fate in the original 2012 fantasy. We're not sure of any specifics regarding the story, but the current script was rewritten by Darabont himself with previous drafts by Craig Mazin (The Hangover III, »

Snow White Prequel (Stupidly) Drops Snow White, Gets New Title and Release Date

‘The Huntsman’ release date announced as ‘Snow White and the Huntsman 2′ drops Snow White aka Kristen Stewart (photo: Chris Hemsworth in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’) Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has a new title, as the "sequel" to Rupert Sanders’ 2012 fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to arrive on screens in 2016 without Snow White — played by Kristen Stewart as an armor-clad Joan of Arc-ish heroine (minus the burning at the stake) in the original film. So, Snow White and the Huntsman 2 has now been renamed The Huntsman. Now, does it sound idiotic to drop Snow White from what was purportedly going to be a Snow White movie sequel? Well, it does — and that’s because it is.

'Uncharted' Takes Old 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' Release Date

23 July 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After Sony Pictures announced earlier today that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being pushed to 2018, the studio gave Uncharted the superhero sequel's old release date on June 10, 2016. Uncharted currently has the date to itself, falling between another Sony project, the animated comedy Sausage Party on June 3 and Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory on June 17.

Here's what Sony Pictures President Doug Belgrad had to say about Uncharted's new release date.

"June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It's just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film."

Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) revealed last week that production on Uncharted will begin in early 2015. This action-adventure is based on the successful video game series that follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who goes on a quest to find the lost city of El Dorado. Mark Wahlberg was once attached to play Drake, but he is no longer involved. »

‘Uncharted’ Director Says Filming to Begin in Early 2015

Gordon told Zap2it (via IGN) that he doesn’t expect the cameras to start rolling on Uncharted until “very early” in 2015, but also that that start date is basically tomorrow by Hollywood ...
