When it was announced that 'The Hobbit' would be turned from two films into three, it seemed possible that Warner Brothers and Peter Jackson could kill themselves trying to deliver an additional three hour movie only seven months after the release of the second. So it's not a big surprise that 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again' has been pushed from July 18 to December 13, 2014.
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' and the new approach to the 'PotA' films is decidedly different than the tact taken in the 1970's. There, each sequel was given a smaller and smaller budget and with fewer name talents. Not so with 'Dawn,' as it just added Gary Oldman to the cast.
In 2009, Bradley Cooper went from utility handsome guy into movie star with his turn in Todd Phillips' 'The Hangover,' and in 2012 Cooper became an Oscar nominee for his work in 'Silver Linings Playbook.' It looks like before 2015 Cooper plans to add another feather to his cap as he's looking to direct his first feature film.
About a month ago, news broke that Marvel had big plans for Hulk, and that they might be sending him to outer space at the end of 'The Avengers 2' in anticipation of a 'Planet Hulk'-style movie. Alas, those rumors have been debunked today.
When we last left Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus,' the film had grossed a weak $126 million domestically but a slightly more promising $400 million worldwide. Those numbers didn't suggest that a sequel was going to be coming any time soon, while writer Damon Lindelof announced he wouldn't be involved with the follow up, which suggested that a sequel was never going to happen. But there's hope for a sequel yet as star Noomi Rapace has reported that the script is being worked on right now.
One of the summer movies we're most excited for is 'Fast and Furious 6,' which will have Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson teaming up to fight crime. What more could you want? Perhaps the return of Michelle Rodriguez, who was supposedly killed during the course of 'Fast and Furious.' Rodiguez is back, but as this featurette shows, she can't really talk about it.
Though we're still waiting for actual casting announcements for 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' another big aspect of the new Disney-run Lucasfilm is the idea of multiple 'Star Wars' films a year. And though we've heard about spin-off movies for some of the characters, the latest rumor is that the popular 'Star Wars' video game 'Knights of the Old Republic' may be brought to the big screen.
December is often a surprising month at the box office as many films that never top the box office end up making a lot of money. The Tom Cruise vehicle 'Jack Reacher' opened right before Christmas and had a $15 million opening weekend. Sounds weak right? And yet the picture has grossed nearly $80 million domestically, and over $200 million worldwide. Which is why Paramount is talking about a sequel.
Joe Carnahan has had some of the worst luck in Hollywood as his list of almost-made films is nearly as long as his actual resume. And now another title can be added to the pile of almosts as Carnahan has exited the 'Death Wish' remake.
