Lionsgate has dated the film for nationwide release on November 27, 2019 for the Thanksgiving holiday corridor.
The film became possible when director Danny Boyle exited James Bond 25. While that film regrouped — Cary Fukunaga is directing it — Craig suddenly had an open slot, and Johnson and his producing partner Ram Bergman took full advantage with an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery that Johnson wrote and was able to squeeze in before he and Bergman drill down on a new trilogy in the Star Wars universe.
Rival distributors didn’t know what to expect from Once Upon a Deadpool; the film flew under the radar of tracking, and for Fox, it’s all gravy for the Deadpool brand. Not to comp because the movie catered to a completely different crowd, but the Weinstein Co.’s The King’s Speech changed its rating from R to PG-13 following its Oscar best picture win in 2011 earning $1.1M over three-days in its April re-release for a final tally of $3.3M. The whole thought process behind
This week’s UK box office sees three high-profile studio releases enter the market.
For the last three years, this weekend in December has seen the release of a blockbuster Star Wars title, two of which, The Force Awakens in 2015 and The Last Jedi in 2017, now sit as respectively the first and fifth highest-grossing titles of all time in the UK.
This year, however, sees a break from the franchise and an opportunity for other releases to make the most of the early festive market.
Of course, he does get a little help from co-stars Ryan Guzman, Meadow Williams and Tyler Jon Olson, cast as conspirators who smuggle Modine’s character, MacDonald, out of a prison psychiatric ward. Seven years earlier, MacDonald and two
There is visual amazement in store for anyone seeing this quite extraordinary re-release from the Russian director Aleksei German – along with disorientation, bafflement, horror and disgust. German’s final film, Hard to Be a God, was released here in 2015, two years after his death.
This is the film that came before, in 1998. It is very loosely inspired by Joseph Brodsky’s essay-memoir In A Room and a Half, which was in fact adapted far more directly in the film by Andrei Khrzhanovsky in 2009.
That means that this year’s winner, the “Black Mirror” installment “USS Callister,” would have been eligible, as it ran for 76 minutes. But the category’s 2017 winner, the “Black Mirror” episode “San Junipero,” was only 61 minutes long, and would not have been eligible to compete under the new guidelines.
The decision to add a length requirement to the category comes just as anthology series experience a resurgence — and given the success of “Black Mirror” in the category, others were sure to emulate the idea of submitting an individual episode as an original TV movie.
Korean studio New and its sales arm Contents Panda have announced a raft of deals on animation Underdog including sales to the Us and Canada (Well Go USA), France (The Jokers Films) and China (Fashion League).
Fashion League has taken equity in the film and also picked up rights to a slew of Asian territories including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
The film is co-directed by Oh Sung-yoon and Lee Choon-baek, who worked together on Leafie, A Hen Into The Wild, which broke local animation box office records.

Despite the slick, well-constructed framework of the Marvel universe (an ongoing work of cinematic art compared to the slapdash scramble of the DC alternative), superhero fatigue has still been slowly creeping into their output. It was inevitable that after so many similarly structured capers, all acting as connective tissue to one another, that familiarity would breed contempt but it was less easy to predict just how grindingly dull so much of it would get.
What a joy it then was to experience Black Panther this past February; a vibrant, thrilling, intelligent and most importantly, distinctive addition to an overcrowded landscape. It managed to smoothly slide into the pre-existing canon while also
Sondra Locke, the American actor who was nominated for an Oscar for her first film before co-starring in six films with her one-time partner, Clint Eastwood, has died.
The actor, who was 74, died at her home in Los Angeles after a cardiac arrest stemming from breast and bone cancer, according to a death certificate obtained by Associated Press. She died on 3 November and authorities were promptly notified at the time. It is not clear why it took nearly six weeks to be reported.
Brett Leonard, best known for directing ”The Lawnmower Man” and “Virtuosity,” will direct the supernatural feature film “Elijah,” based on the Old Testament prophet.
The project is set up at Winter State Entertainment. Producers are Hamid and Camille Torabpour, Jhene Chase, Mark Smith and Patrick Werksma. The screenplay is by Hamid Torabpour and Andrew Kightlinger.
“The tremendous human and spiritual journey at the core of the epic Biblical story of ‘Elijah’ provides the ultimate canvas for my passion to explore the connection between cinematic and immersive storytelling,” Leonard said.
Winter State plans to kick off a biblical film universe with “Elijah,” which will be followed by “Elijah Part 2.” “The Lawnmower Man,” budgeted at $6 million, featured leading-edge technology and grossed over $150 million worldwide.

The current three-year deal — which covers about $1 billion in annual earnings — expires on March 31. SAG-aftra and the Joint Policy Committee of the ad industry plan to hold the negotiations in New York City.
Reps for the union did not respond to a request for comment and the ad industry’s lead negotiator Stacy K. Marcus of the firm Reed Smith said, “The Jpc and SAG-aftra have agreed to a media blackout.”
The Joint Policy Committee recommended in October — as it has in the past — that ad agencies and advertisers plan for a possible strike by re-scheduling production planned for April through June to a date prior to March 31.
“The industry remains optimistic that we will have a successful conclusion to these negotiations without disruption,

Lynne Ramsay On Bouncing Back
In the winter of 2013-14, Lynne Ramsay disappeared to the Greek Island of Santorini to seek refuge after the traumatic experience of having to quit “Jane Got a Gun” right as production began, having concluded the producers would never let her make her version of the film she’d worked on for years.
“I found it quite peaceful and I could get quite focused, perhaps because I thought I was going to make a film and I didn’t and that was really painful,” said Ramsay.
CBS confirmed the settlement in a statement:
“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done,” CBS said. “The settlement of these claims reflects the projected amount that Ms. Dushku would have received for the balance of

Here’s the synopsis: “In Gansu Province, northwest China, lie the remains of countless prisoners abandoned in the Gobi Desert sixty years ago. Deemed ‘ultra-rightists’ in the Communist Party’s Anti-Rightist campaign of 1957, they starved to death in the Jiabiangou and Mingshui reeducation camps. Dead Souls invites us to meet the survivors of the camps to find out firsthand who these persons were, the hardships they were forced to endure, and what became their destiny.”

She died due to breast and bone cancer, according to Radar Online, which reported that she was laid to rest at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park & Mortuary.
Locke had a contentious relationship of more than a decade with Clint Eastwood, who first cast her in “The Outlaw Josey Wales.”
Locke was born in 1944 as Sandra Louise Smith and raised in Shelbyville, Tenn.
