The Expendables 3 Leaked Online. Will This Effect Their Box Office Results?

Lionsgate is taking legal action against the anonymous individuals who shared online an advance copy of The Expendables 3, starring Sylvester Stallone.

The film company filed a lawsuit in California federal court against "John Does 1-10."

Lionsgate reports learning on July 24 that a digital file containing a high-quality reproduction of the film had been stolen and uploaded to the Internet. The Expendables 3 has reportedly crossed more than a million downloads already. All of the copies circulating online are said in the lawsuit to be traced to the original stolen digital file.

The lawsuit targets the operators behind limetorrents.com, billionuploads.com, hulfile.eu, played.to, swantshare.com and dotsemper.com and uses language that's similar to past mass "Doe" complaints against torrent users.

According to the lawsuit, "By downloading one of these 'torrent' files associated with the Stolen Film from , users join a 'swarm' where they download parts of the Stolen Film from many different users and also upload to other users parts of the Stolen Film they have already received, until eventually they have reproduced the entire Stolen Film on their own hard drives and in most cases have also uploaded all or a substantial part of the Stolen Film to others."

Lionsgate sent demand letters to operators of the torrent sites. For instance, the studio contacted hulkfile every day between July 26 and July 31 — an indication of just how seriously concerned the studio is to see its movie leak in advance of a Aug. 15 release. The operators of the sites didn't respond to demand letters, says the lawsuit.

The plaintiff is demanding a temporary restraining order and injunctions that prohibit the anonymous operators of the sites from hosting, linking to, distributing, reproducing, performing, selling or making available copies of Expendables 3. The film company also wants to stop the defendants from taking action that "induces, causes or materially contributes to" direct copyright infringement of its work.

But the demands go much further: The requested injunction also seeks to have the defendants prohibited from "operating any of the websites" and ordered to "take all steps necessary to recall and recover all copies of the Stolen Film or any portion thereof that they have distributed." Additionally, Lionsgate is looking to prevent defendants from transferring their assets and circumventing the court orders. The plaintiff wants registry operators to place the domain names on "locked" status.

Additionally, the ISPs that are providing hosting and cloud storage as well as the banks and financial institutions servicing the torrent sites are also under the eye of the film company. Subpoenas could be issued soon.

Lionsgate is being represented by Dennis Wilson at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.

Expendables 3 is produced by Nu Image, which notably was one of the first companies to go after torrent users. Three years ago, Nu Image targeted 23,322 alleged online pirates of the original The Expendables, but ran into problems when a federal judge in Washington, D.C., questioned jurisdiction. In 2012, the company later brought other copyright infringement lawsuits over the film around the country, but has been fairly quiet on the piracy hunt since then.

#KingConan With Schwarzenegger To Shoot In Spring 2015

Question: What is best in life? If you answered: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women, then you are probably one of the rabid fans of Conan the Barbarian. And, not just Conan, but Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian.

Our buddies over at the TheArnoldFans.com sat down with Fredrick Malmberg the producer behind the abomination that was 2011′s Conan the Barbarian starring Jason Momoa. The producer had some very interesting and exciting news about The Legend Of  Conan, a movie project that many thought had been shelved.

“We want to polish up the script, specifically about the characters, but we don’t think it will take long. We’ll probably have this turned in around September after the holiday and then we’ll take it to the studio and if they’re happy, we can hopefully start (production) in the Spring (2015).”

Which means that we could see Arnold as the old, grizzled King Conan as soon as 2016. Malmberg was also asked about directors for the movie, and he has this to say:

“We haven’t been talking with directors yet. A lot of directors have come forth and expressed interest, and that they like Conan and want to be involved when we’re at that stage. But the studio said they want the script to be ready before we officially approach the directors. But we have been in touch with old great names and new fresh faces. We’re excited about finding the right guy for that.”

I do wonder what “Old great names” means. In 1982, the only Conan the Barbarian movie that I recognize, was directed by John Milius. Now, Milius has been battling some serious health issues, but recently, the director has reportedly beaten those pesky health problems and is said to be in discussions with Mel Gibson on a Genghis Khan movie.

If John Milius were to be brought on to direct The Legend of Conan, then there is no doubt that the movie would be done right. What I mean by that is, Milius has famously stated that he despises the use of CGI, which means we would get a gritty Conan, in all his gnarled and angry old man glory…which is how it should be.

Do You Care For Another Kick-Ass Movie?

Mark Millar, whose comic books were the basis for this franchise is uncertain about the possibility of the third installment..

“With “Kick-Ass,” it was a no brainer. It was made for $28 million and made $100 million back and then made another $140 million on DVD. So for the money guys, it was a $28 million investment that made $240 million. That’s a slam dunk. You’re getting your sequel. The second one didn’t make as much. It cost a little less at around $24 million, made $61 million and made about $100 million again on DVD and TV rights. It was still profitable. It was by no means “The Lone Ranger.” But does that mean we’ll make another one again? I don’t know. It’s definitely up in the air, and we’ll just have to see. Matthew is a guy who I trust to make that decision. If he decides he does want to do it, I know he’ll get it done well. And he’s got the movie rights, so it’s ultimately his decision. I speak to Matthew every day, and we haven’t discussed “Kick-Ass 3″ so who knows? The option is always open.”

TV Review: @TyrantFX “Preventative Medicine”

TV Review: Tyrant “Preventative Medicine”
By: Brandon Wolfe

After a few episodes attempting, and failing, to craft riveting television out of political intrigue, ‘Tyrant’ moves to that most tried-and-true method of grabbing viewers: murder. Truth be told, it mostly helps. “Preventative Medicine” holds our interest more than episodes of this series generally have. The introduction of juicier stakes for the characters, actions and decisions of more immediate interest to the viewing audience than the legacy-building and political chess games the show usually feeds us, gives ‘Tyrant’ a bit of kick in the seat. We are far from out of the woods here, but a watchable ‘Tyrant’ is certainly progress.

Jamal’s impromptu assault on Sheik Rashid in the men’s room has mostly gone in his favor. The doctors find no evidence of foul play and conclude that the sheik’s physical ailment is the culprit behind his nasty head trauma, while the security footage is doctored to remove Jamal’s presence from the restroom. The only problem for Jamal is that the sheik is not dead, not quite. He’s hanging on by a thread, placed into an induced coma, but the doctors have every reason to believe that he can make a full recovery shortly, possibly in a matter of days. This troubles Jamal, for obvious reasons. If the sheik comes to and starts talking, Jamal’s life will be ruined. When dealing with the stress of the situation, Jamal arrives at the conclusion that he no longer wants to be the president of Abuddin. Even in his very brief reign, it has been nothing but a series of headaches. He wants to retreat before the world learns of his crime and live a life of leisure. He implores Leila to leave with him to the Maldives to get away from all of this while that is still possible, but though she is actually proud of his attempt on the sheik’s life, she tells him he must stay and stand his ground.

This leads Jamal to the only plan he can devise. He asks Bassam to make sure the sheik never awakes from that coma, a burden that Bassam accepts with no small amount of trepidation. He is aghast at what his brother has done after all the progress he had steered him toward, yet still feels the familial obligation to help him out of this jam. Bassam goes to the sheik’s hospital bed (which he, conveniently, is allowed to do without an escort), expresses his profound apologies to the unconscious man and injects him with the contents of a syringe to begin a process that will take hours to officially kill him, lessening the suspicion of funny business. The experience takes Bassam back to his childhood, when he took it upon himself to execute a man in the streets to spare his brother the trauma of being forced to do it himself. So troubled is Bassam by this task that it sends him back to the prayer rug for the first time in ages. What it doesn’t do, regrettably, is lift Adam Rayner’s performance up from its default state of low-hum mediocrity.

It’s a bad week for Bassam all around, for he also learns from his mother that the gas attack infamously waged by his father twenty years ago was actually the handiwork of his bloodthirsty uncle, General Tariq. It turns out that the former President Al-Fayeed was actually a peaceful man who merely lacked the fortitude to stand up to his wrathful brother. It’s a revelation that doesn’t quite wash. While we’ve certainly seen Tariq raising his iron fist all throughout the series, we have also seen flashbacks of Bassam and Jamal’s father ordering his boys to execute men in the streets and behaving the way a ruthless dictator generally behaves. This attempt at a retroactive whitewash doesn’t sync up with the very little we already know about that character.

It was revealed last week that Jamal has taken a mistress, a blonde American (these brothers certainly have a type) named Katerina, who adores Jamal and gives him the affection and ego-stoking that the ice-blooded Leila refuses to provide. Jamal runs his Maldives idea by her, still plotting an escape from this life, and Katerina happily accepts. But Jamal’s escape plan goes out the window when he receives the instant relief of Bassam’s telephone call informing his brother of the sheik’s death. Jamal, concerned with tying off anything that could remotely be considered a loose end, opts to smother an unsuspecting Katerina to death with a pillow. This development comes out of nowhere and doesn’t seem particularly well-reasoned, but ‘Tyrant’ shifting its penchant toward overwrought melodrama into a mounting body count at least livens up the proceedings.

The other development this week is the arrival in Abuddin of Molly’s flighty sister, Jenna, who storms into the palace and announces that she’s fallen on hard times and wants to stay in the lap of luxury indefinitely, something we gather from Molly’s reaction is a not-infrequent component of their relationship. ‘Tyrant’ had given us a break for a short while from Bassam’s obnoxious American family, yet now tosses one more irksome log on the fire. ‘Tyrant’ is produced by Howard Gordon of ‘24’ and Jenna seems like a pristine example of one of that series’ more troubling tendencies, randomly tossing a character’s screw-up relative into the mix and letting them cause problems that the writers feel make matters more interesting, but actually register as time-wasting distractions. It’s clear that Jenna exists to stir up some form of chaos in the coming weeks and I don’t see that helping matters along.

“Preventative Medicine” ends on a provocative note, with Bassam contacting the American ambassador John Tucker and requesting a list of all those who feel Jamal isn’t fit to rule. The idea of Bassam orchestrating a power play against Jamal, brother turned against brother, could be another step in the direction of ‘Tyrant’ becoming less of a joyless slog. Then again, it could turn out to be colorless and dull. That is, after all, ‘Tyrant’s’ wont.

Eli Roth's "The Green Inferno" Pulled From Release Date

The trailers and stills have been trickling online; the festival screenings have been going well, and there's even a smartphone game. But in a surprise move, Eli Roth's cannibal holocaust The Green Inferno has suddenly been pulled from the schedules in the US, where it was due for a wide release on September 5.

A bit of notoriety never hurt any horror film in the long run, but sadly The Green Inferno's woes are nothing to do with its grisly content. The boringly prosaic reasons for the film's - presumably temporary - canning have to do with internal ructions at the financiers Worldview Entertainment.

According to Deadline, Worldview's new CEO Molly Conners has baulked at some of the financial commitments made by her outgoing predecessor Christopher Woodrow, among which was a hefty publicity and advertising spend for Roth's jungle opus. Behind-the-scenes talks are ongoing with current distributor Open Road to try to rectify the situation, but whether a third party will arrive with an advertising budget, or whether a new distributor will step up, remains to be seen.

Roth's tribute to the gonzo Italian likes of Ruggero Deodato and Umberto Lenzi sees a group of student activists head deep into the Peruvian jungle and face the threat of being eaten alive at the hands of a hungry indigent tribe. It was made for an estimated $6m, so wouldn't even have to do much business to go into profit. Given Roth's high profile and the fact that advance word on the film is strong, the decision to drop it is certainly an odd one.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review: Uninspiring Pap Courtesy of Michael Bay

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is uninspiring pap targeted to a much younger people. And that's too bad.
WARNING: spoilers ahead
For someone who was just a little too old to buy into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when they arrived in the 1990's, I found myself wondering if the newest incarnation would somehow appeal to me. Having never aligned myself with any particular Turtles camp, I could easily see another franchise being added to my 'To-Do List.' Then I read the credits, and three words fill me with dread: Producer. Michael. Bay.

Victims of a lab experiment gone wrong (or right?), four box turtles have morphed into six-foot muscle-bound ninjas, aided by their father and lab victim Splinter (voiced by Tony Shalhoub), who keeps them hidden from the public in the sewers under New York City. Michelangelo (Johnny Knoxville), Donatello (Jeremy Howard), Rafael (Alan Ritchson), and Leonardo (Pete Ploszek) are young and impetuous youths whose desire for combat is matched only for their love of pizza. They'll soon get their chance, as a crime wave hits the City courtesy of the venerable Foot Clan and led by their boss Shredder (Tohoru Masamune). Meanwhile, fluff television reporter April O'Neal (Megan Fox) comes face to face with both combatants and learns that her history with The Turtles goes back to her youth. The two join forces with April's wise-cracking camera man Vern (Will Arnett) to unravel Shredder's plan and stop industrialist Eric Sacks (William Fitchner) from releasing a deadly toxin.

Having never seen the television series or the 90's feature films in 20 years, it's easy to see the cracks emerge early in this production, hoping that either nostalgia or laziness will prove to be forgiving. Although he didn't direct it, Bay's dirty fingers are all over this cookie jar: there's jokes that fall flat, action that's too close and hard to follow, and character development that's as thin a katana blade. But unlike the dense katana, the script by Andre Nemec and others wouldn't survive an onslaught of baby drool, which is what I started to feel during a particularly long outdoor sequence featuring a truck, some snow, and the Turtles learning to ski. Under normal circumstances such a mix should hold some interest, but Director Jonathan Liebesman gets too close to the action (Bay-style), throwing humans into unbelievable situations that should have ended their lives 12 times over, while the Turtles remark about how cool it is to snow as their lives are in danger. That's not what typical teenagers do, and the Turtles' exchanges here just muddy the waters even more.

For a series filled with self-deprecating humor and the ability to break the fourth wall, Turtles does very little to resurrect that sense of joy or innocence. There's no intelligence to the script, replaced with a combination of uninspiring dullness and the feeling that these are more associates than 'brother' turtles. There's only the barest of character development among them, just enough to know that they joke around, do funny dance moves, and love their pizza. That works if this was a weekly series that could later explore their relationships and deepen our appreciation of them, but here it's just not enough.

In addition, there are serious deviations from canon that I suppose long-time fans might not accept. Gone is the 'walking through goo' line, replaced with 'Hey, I rescued you after you were shot up with goo' plot, in which O'Neil is seen as a sort of sister to the Turtles. This messes with Shedder's backstory which in turn affects his discovery of Kung-fu, and so on. But this version of Turtles is clearly not aimed at long-time followers with a collection of toys on their shelves, a fact made more apparent with each iteration of these retcon productions.

The arrival of the Post-baby Fox has been well-documented, but the question has always been, why her? Not only is her tendency towards dividing a production well-documented, she's just not strong enough to pull off a deeper version of O'Neal. When she learns the real story behind her father's death, Fox doesn't do much more than shrug it off, unable or unwilling to avenger her loss with the murderer right in front of her. But there's also a strange softness to her face in most scenes, as if Liebesman was purposely trying to downplay her age. I'm a big fan of the body, but Fox the actress was clearly the wrong choice. Fitchner plays yet another thinly-developed baddie, whose intentions are never probed beyond skin deep. He comes across as no more than a middle-of-the-road madman bent on economic glory rather than harboring a deeper desire. Arnett is serviceable as Vernon, included here as a way to placate Turtles fans expecting plenty of easter eggs. You'll see several throughout, and working through that exercise might keep you from feeling the blahs about this one.

In the end, it's the lack of a soul and poor character development that ultimately kills Turtles. I failed to care any more for these motion-capture kids by the end, their love for Splinter no more deep than when it began. I realize we're talking about a Summer film here, but when I'm unable to tell the difference between Leonardo and Michelangelo 60 minutes into the movie, one must realize the folly of even trying. Content to shoot its wad now and deal with the mess later, this could have been a gateway to a much larger tale where the stakes could clearly be felt, rather those classic moments realized too soon.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might highly offend long-time fans, while 9-year-olds will laugh their way through their popcorn and sugary drink. When one looks at such disparate demographics, you realize precisely who this film is targeted towards, and why it might ultimately fail with such low standards. And in my book, that's a fail for a series with so much promise.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is rated PG-13 for Sci-Fi action violence and has a runtime of 101 minutes.

Into the Storm Review: It's a Disaster

Into the Storm is Pseudo-Science and terrible acting run amok.

With Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy proving that our Earth in the throws of something environmentally dire, one would think a disaster picture like Into the Storm would tackle this sensitive subject with more grace. Not so: it's filled with enough silly pseudo-science and poor acting to fill the eye of a tornado and is one of the worst films of the year.

As tornadoes batter the Midwest, storm chaser Pete (Matt Walsh) has experienced an uneventful year filled with frustrating misses courtesy of his green team members. Among them is the meteorologist Allison (Sarah Wayne Callies), whose constant miscalculations have prevented Pete from experiencing glory and a large payout for that perfect shot inside the storm. But soon they'll get their chance, as a series of massive storms invade the town of Silverton, eventually forming the destructive weather event F5, with winds of over 300 mph. As Silverton's citizens struggle to stay alive, the vice principal of a local high school (Richard Armitage) must locate one of his sons who's become trapped during a building collapse. As the F5 sets its sights on the town, the two groups huddle together, hoping to ride out an event that few can hope to do.

For a film that survives on high intensity and fierce winds, the 89-minute Storm crawls along, due to many sequences that carry on far longer than Director Steven Quale should have allowed. He and Writer John Swetnam fill too many early scenes with exposition to establish this world of increasing natural calamities, without grounding the rest of the film in logical action sequences. Tornadoes of these magnitudes - especially those of an F5 - would decimate anyone who ventured too close, yet we're constantly barraged by our heroes seeming to escape each threats, until the third act when they're able to somehow survive winds of over 300 mph by 'hanging on.' Not likely.

Into the Storm's bold predictions of spiraling disasters reaching Los Angeles or Chicago is a frightening possibility, but the way it gets there and carries them out turns to low-end shtick awfully quick. There's no real science here, and it thus misses a great opportunity to validate itself as anything other than low-grade disaster film. What we get instead is a series of unrealistic events which border on the ridiculous, from multiple twisters touching down simultaneously to F5's taking Pete into its center only to shoot him above the clouds like Superman learning to fly in Man of Steel.

The acting here is a mish-mash of pubescent Paranormal Activity chest thumping, poorly-portrayed Blair Witch goodbyes, and an over-the-top performance from Armitage. What feels like an ABC After-School disaster film is only added to by Armitage's constant scowling at the camera, perhaps wondering why a person of his considerable talents signed on for such a questionable affair. Callies is suitable as the meteorologist banned to the back of the bus, her performance sequestered in a wall of rain but able to keep her humanity when the clouds finally part. Everyone else here is either thinly-drawn or non-existent, their presence only offering a vehicle to the next disastrous moment that they must either endure or become swept up in its ferocity. When that moment comes, some characters magically survive, such as two redneck brothers whose antics make you want to slap them.

I found myself hoping more characters would die Deep Impact style, but torn between the reasons for it: was it to make the story more interesting, or hating their characters enough to see their short lives ended? For its many faults, at least Deep Impact dealt with life-ending threats with a dignity that Storm sadly needs. When such debates and comparisons are harbored during a film, the result cannot be good.

Into the Storm is just a terrible movie. Filled with silly pseudo-science about real threats to our planet and poor acting that no good moviegoer should be forced to endure, it reminds us that bad movies sometime get their start for foolish reasons and never look up. Skip this one at all costs, regardless of the format. It's a disaster on every level and in the truest sense of the word.

Into the Storm is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense destruction and peril, and language including some sexual references and has a runtime of 89 minutes.

TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE 40th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD Combo & Limited Edition Available September 16th

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Black Maria Limited Edition Exclusively Available Through Gorgon-Video.com Starting September 16th.

Collector's Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo and Single DVD and Blu-ray Also Available on September 16th

It's been imitated and remade, but never equaled. Tobe Hooper's THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE rose from a notorious 1974 sleeper sensation to rank as one of the greatest horror films ever made. Now, to mark the film's 40th anniversary, Dark Sky Films is presenting the digitally re-mastered masterpiece on Blu-ray for the first time in a stunning Limited Deluxe "Black Maria" Collector's Edition box set.

THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE appears in an all-new 4K digital transfer and with a newly created 7.1 surround sound mix supervised by director Hooper (Poltergeist). This release marks the only transfer of the film to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls, the actual film that rolled through the cameras. The Limited Deluxe "Black Maria" Edition of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE will be released at retail in October but will be available exclusively at www.gorgon-video.com for 30 days starting September 16, 2014. Fans of the film will recognize the unique packaging as a replica of the iconic 'Black Maria' cattle truck that comes to Sally Hardesty's rescue when she's being pursued by Leatherface, a fitting nod to the legions of TCSM enthusiasts who were instrumental in keeping the film at the forefront of the genre throughout for the past 40 years and a true collectible display piece.' This four-disc DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will include a wealth of extras, including: A Leatherface apron Theatrical mini-poster Five audio options Four feature commentaries with the filmmakers and cast, Several making-of featurettes Deleted scenes, outtakes, bloopers, trailers and much more THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE received a mixed critical reception upon its initial release - the Los Angeles Times called it "despicable" - but horror fans immediately recognized it has a breakthrough in unbearable suspense. The story, written by director Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel, is dreadfully simple: Five young people on a weekend getaway in remote Texas countryside fall prey to a chain saw-wielding butcher (dubbed Leatherface because of his mask made of human skin) and his demented cannibalistic family. Thanks to startling scenes such as a woman being impaled on a meat hook, horror cinema would never be the same. Violent, confrontational and shockingly realistic, the film terrified audiences and was the most buzzed-about release of its time (a buzz fueled by the marketing campaign that claimed it was based on a true story). Thrust upon an America disillusioned by the Vietnam War and Watergate, the 1974 shocker faced a storm of controversy, censorship and outcry. But this masterpiece of horror has stood the test of time to become a landmark motion picture and cultural milestone, having opened the (sliding steel) door to the entire slasher genre of the 1980s and beyond. In addition to the Limited Deluxe "Black Maria" Edition of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE , the film will also be released as a standard DVD, Blu-ray and DVD/Blu-ray Combo on September 16 at retail outlets nationwide.

Production On @TheWalkMovie Has Wrapped



Tomorrow Marks the 40th Anniversary of Petit’s August 7, 1974 Walk Between the Twin Towers

Principal photography has wrapped on the inaugural film from Tom Rothman’s TriStar Productions, now officially titled The Walk. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film is a true story based on Philippe Petit’s book “To Reach the Clouds,” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the young dreamer who dared the impossible: an illegal wire walk between the World Trade Center towers. Zemeckis wrote the screenplay with Christopher Browne. Producers are Steve Starkey, Robert Zemeckis, and Jack Rapke. The film will be released on October 2, 2015.

Tomorrow, August 7, is the 40th anniversary of the astounding event, now being brought back to vivid life in the third act climax of the film.

Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX 3D wizardry, The Walk is true big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. The film is a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the Towers of the World Trade Center.

Also starring in the film are James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Charlotte Le Bon, Clément Sibony and César Domboy.

The production’s creative team includes director of photography Dariusz Wolski, production designer Naomi Shohan, editor Jeremiah O’Driscoll, and costume designer Suttirat Larlarb. The composer is Alan Silvestri.

Moviegoers can follow the film on the official movie site at www.thewalkmovie.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TheWalkMovie or on Twitter @TheWalkMovie.

Batman v. Superman Moves Release Date

At the same time, Warner Bros. dates no fewer than nine untitled DC Comics titles all the way through June 2020.

In order to avoid a direct confrontation with Captain America 3, Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is moving up from May 6, 2016, to March 25, the beginning of Easter weekend.

Batman v. Superman, which stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, was widely expected to move, since Marvel Studios and Disney had claimed the May 2016 weekend first. Warner Bros. and DC Comics announced the new date Wednesday alongside dates for nine untitled DC Comics titles through June 2020. That means two superhero movies a year from Warner Bros., beginning in 2016.

With the move, Warners and DC are essentially declaring war on Marvel and Disney, which have been the most prolific suppliers of superhero titles.

The new dates announced by Warners are Aug. 8, 2016; June 23, 2017; Nov. 17, 2017; March 23, 2018; July 27, 2018; April 5, 2019; June 14, 2019; April 3, 2020; and June 19, 2020. The batch of films is likely to include multiple Justice League titles and a Wonder Woman spinoff.

Warners also laid claim to Nov. 16, 2018, and Nov. 20, 2020, likely for the second and third installments in J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts triology (the first film hits theaters in 2016).

As a result of the Batman v. Superman move to March 25, the previously scheduled Geostorm is moving off of that date (no new release date for that film has been set).

Terminator 'Genisys' Is the Title For The New Terminator Film

For months now we have been calling the in-production new Terminator film 'Genesis'. Well, it turns out that we were all a little wrong. It will in fact be called 'Genisys', as confirmed by an Instagram from Arnold Schwarzenegger's personal account.

We can only hope and assume that this title has some sort of meaning beyond being a funky spelling of an actual word. Perhaps there's a reference, in that "sys" suffix, to Cyberdyne Systems. Does the "gen" refer to generations? Or genes? After all, some people must have been used as the models for the Terminators in the first place, so maybe it's about their genes. We're hoping, in any case, that it's more than simply an attempt to be down with the cool kids by showing a flagrant disregard for the normal rules of English spelling.

In any case, the cast and crew of the film are extremely promising. In addition to Schwarzenegger himself, the film stars Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke (no relation) as Sarah Connor (a relation), JK Simmons, Jai Courtney, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith and Lee Byung-hun. Thor: The Dark World's Alan Taylor is directing, from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.

#THEGIVER COLOR PARTY This Weekend In San Mateo

In celebration of The Weinstein Company’s THE GIVER.  The party will be taking place on Saturday, August 9th from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM at Hillsdale Mall in San Mateo. We’ll be having a variety of activities including hair chalking and nail stations, twister, spin art, raffles and prizing giveaways, and cotton candy. I have attached the flyer for you.

THE GIVER is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. Starring Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, Cameron Monaghan, Odeya Rush, and Taylor Swift, THE GIVER will be in theaters everywhere August 15th.

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community’s memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community’s secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined – a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all – a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. THE GIVER is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

Trailer For THE GUEST Starring Dan Stevens

Watch the official US trailer for THE GUEST.

THE GUEST visits theaters September 17, 2014. Let us know if you'll be letting him in.

From the director of YOU’RE NEXT and featuring a standout, badass performance from Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”), comes THE GUEST: a tense, action-packed and unpredictable film like everything and nothing you've ever seen before. Empire Magazine called it "a demented action-horror hybrid of sci-fi conspiracy thriller and gore-fest", and Vanity Fair said, “THE GUEST is big, it’s bold, it’s badass, full of flavor Hollywood wishes it could pour over its vanilla blockbusters.”
