Marvel and Warner Bros. Continue to Square Off With Release Dates

It seems that Marvel and Warner Bros. will be even more actively squaring off in theaters in 2015 and 2016 as they are increasingly setting their release dates on the same day.  Whether or not this is a good move for either studio remains to be seen, but they certainly have committed to it.  Marvel just moved Ant-Man’s release date up two weeks to July 17th, 2015, which you may recognize as the previous release date of Batman vs. Superman before it was moved to 2016.  The Batman vs. Superman movie, of course, is  now being released on the same date as an untitled Marvel movie.  And this new release date for Ant-Man means that it will be going up against WB’s as-yet-untitled Peter Pan film.

Tron 3 Has Found A Writer But Will It Have An Audience?

I remember seeing preview footage of Tron: Legacy at San Diego Comic-Con and being pretty impressed. The 3D actually made sense and they seemed to have a good handle on a story that would do the original film justice. When I saw the full movie I thought it was good, not great, and didn’t expect them to make any more. While the idea was bounced around for a while, it looks like it’s finally gaining momentum.

Jennifer Lawrence Almost Passed On The Hunger Games & Why Another Actor Actually Did

The amount of “what ifs” in Hollywood is probably staggering but can you imagine if Jennifer Lawrence said no to The Hunger Games? But we don’t have to and we have Lawrence’s mom to thank for that. Now if only another actor had sought out advice from dear old mom before passing on Catching Fire…

One Of These Men Might Be Finnick Odair In Catching Fire

We’re sorry to do this to you again.

Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund on the Short List to Play Finnick in Catching Fire

May the casting speculation begin for the sequel to The Hunger Games! Lionsgate has an official short list out for the strapping lads who are up for the role of Finnick Odair, a fellow victor who appears not just in Catching Fire, but also in Mockingjay (which may or may not be split into two movies). And the not-Robert Pattinsons on that list: Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Armie Hammer (The Social Network). Earlier this week, Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, Battleship) was reportedly on this list, too. And I think it’s safe to say that Hollywood is now allergic to him.

The Akira Remake Is On Hold

We’ve been bringing you very interesting movie news all day today, and the afternoon hours have not disappointed us. Why? Because production on the much-maligned whitewashed remake of Akira has been put on hold. While the higher-ups reconsider the budget (and try to cut $20 million out of it), production offices in Vancouver are sending their employees home and being told to “stop working.” Is it the end? Maybe not. But is the universe trying to send some sort of signal to Warner Bros.? We’d like to think so.

Take A Deep Breath Everyone: Akira‘s Been Greenlit Again

According to Variety, the long suffering and controversial-before-even-finishing-the-casting-process remake of Katsuhiro Otomo‘s animated adaptation of his epic manga Akira, is back on track at Warner Bros. On the one hand, Otomo himself is one of the movie’s executive producers. On the other, Variety says that Garrett Hedlund, of Tron and Troy fame, is a front runner for either Tetsuo or Kaneda.

Many fans were incensed last time around at Warner Bros. apparent willingness to ignore Akira‘s origin as a distinctly Japanese work of art with a distinctly Japanese setting, an excellent opportunity to bring some diversity to American cinema by casting Japanese, or at the very least Asian actors in the movie’s lead roles.
