Recently, we were buzzed that Quentin Tarantino planned to make a new Western called 'The Hateful Eight.' Alas, the project is being set aside as Tarantino is furious that his script has already leaked all over Hollywood.
2015 was looking like the craziest year in cinema history (at least in terms of blockbusters) with 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and more battling it out in the summer and winter months. 'Batman Vs. Superman' was one of the those big titles, but Warner Brothers and DC seemingly don't want to compete with that crowd and have moved the picture to May 6, 2016
Though perhaps not thought of as a mega-blockbuster, 'Despicable Me 2' grossed $368 million domestically and $935 million worldwide, and is currently the 25th highest grossing film in America and 24th worldwide. So, no surprise, Universal has dated 'Despicable Me 3' for 2017.
After offering ace support in comedies like 'Wet Hot American Summer' and 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin,' and wearing the weirdest outfits in 'The Hunger Games' films, it's great to see Elizabeth Banks get a movie of her own. That film is 'Walk of Shame,' and now there's a trailer.
With so much attention focused on 2015, and the explosion of tentpole releases that are coming, it's worth noting that the biggest sequel of them all isn't due until the year after. James Cameron is gearing up to make some of the biggest films of all time as he's working on three sequels to 'Avatar,' with the first due in 2016, and today some expected casting for the series has been confirmed: Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will return to Pandora.
'Batman Vs. Superman' (or as it's officially known, 'The Untitled Zack Snyder Super Hero Film'), is already crowded with superheroes, which makes it feel like Warner Brothers was trying to make the 'Man of Steel' sequel into a 'Justice League' movie. The latest rumor suggests that 'Batman Vs. Superman' won't be a 'Justice League' movie, but will lead directly into one that will co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
It's been a while since we've heard any rumblings about 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' likely because the film went/is still going through a page one rewrite, but if the film is going to make its December 18, 2015 release date, we're going to start hearing about who's getting cast shortly. The latest word is that 'Breaking Bad' star Jesse Plemons is being courted for a role.
20th Century Fox is so confident in director Matt Reeves' work on 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' that they've just signed the helmer for a follow-up, with writers already being wrangled to write the third prequel to the beloved original 'Planet of the Apes' series.
