    Release Dates: Jon Stewart's 'Rosewater' Readied For Oscar Season, 'The Huntsman' Coming In Spring 2016

    You can have a great movie, but if you don't position it properly, it won't find the audience it deserves, nor maximize the profitability you were hoping for. That's a longwinded way of saying some movies have announced some new release dates, so let's dive right in.

    Alex Kurtzman Will Direct Universal’s Reboot Of ‘The Mummy’

    It’s only been a few short months since writing dream team Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci ("Star Trek," “Transformers 2,” “The Amazing Spider-Man”)announced the dissolution of their creative writing partnership, but the two have been busy ever since. Orci’s essentially going to take over the “Star T...

    The Guys Behind 'The Mummy' And 'Fast Five' Will Reboot & "Unify" Universal's Classic Movie Monsters Ala Marvel's MCU

    In the era of reboots and remakes, if an attempt to bring back a franchise fails, it's cool because you can just try again a few years later. Of even if it was successful, you can still reboot it, even if the next incarnation is a total disappointment (see "The Amazing Spider-Man"). And so it goes w...

    Leigh Whannel To Helm 'Insidious 3,' Universal's 'The Mummy' Reboot Loses Another Director & More

    As logic dictates, if "Insidious" made $97 million worldwide, and "Insidious 2" made $161 million worldwide, a third film should follow. Plans were announced last fall, though director James Wan announced he had moved from the horror genre as a director. But a filmmaker has been found, and it won't ...

    Michael Mann’s Cybercrime Thriller Hits January 2015, ‘Warcraft’ Moves To March 2016 To Make Way For ‘Star Wars 7’

    Universal Pictures and their new partners at Legendary Pictures (they said "see ya later" to Warner Bros. this year after “Pacific Rim”) have unveiled a quintet of release dates for their 2015/2016 season. Let’s get right to it. The first and perhaps most disappointing news is that Michael Mann’s un...

    'Mama' Director Andres Muschietti Gets Cursed With 'The Mummy' Reboot

    Last month, "The Mummy" reboot was put back in the coffin, so to speak, when helmer Len Wiseman, in a rare move of taste and thoughtfulness, bailed from the project citing vague "scheduling issues." Since then, word has been "mum" (ha!) on the brewing bad idea, but rest assured, Universal has found ...

    Len Wiseman Leaves The Crypt, Won't Direct 'The Mummy' Reboot

    The news earlier this year that Universal hired “The Hunger Games” and “Captain Phillips” writer Billy Ray to pen a new screenplay for “The Mummy” reboot, after “Prometheus” writer Jon Spaihts turned in his own separate draft, signalled perhaps that the studio still wasn't sure which direction to ta...

    Universal Hires 'Hunger Games' Writer Billy Ray To Pen Competing Script For 'The Mummy' Reboot

    Oh, what a rollercoaster you're taking us on Universal! Last spring, with "Prometheus" still buzzing on everyone's minds, the studio snapped up that film's original writer Jon Spaihts to pen their reboot of "The Mummy." Okay, if it's gonna happen, he's a decen...

    Len Wiseman Hired To Direct Reboot Of Universal's 'The Mummy'

    Even though reviews for "Total Recall" were less than kind, and audiences at home mostly didn't care, it seems overseas is where Len Wiseman still matters. The ill advised, blandly directed and deathly dull remake pulled in less than $60 million stateside, but overseas? $114 million. G...

    'Prometheus' Writer Jon Spaihts To Pen Universal's Reboot Of 'The Mummy'

    So, what happens when you happen to be the writer who penned the most anticipated movie of the summer/year? Everyone forgets you also wrote "The Darkest Hour" and gives you a big shiny new franchise to play with. That's what's happening with Jon Spaihts, the dude who wrote the init...
