Paramount Sets a Mystery IMAX 'Cloverfield Movie' for October 2017

Cloverfield Movie

Paramount is hiding something. According to various sources, Paramount has scheduled a new Cloverfield movie to open in theaters on October 27th, 2017. The only information available is that the project is currently titled Cloverfield Movie (IMAX), meaning it will be opening on IMAX screens next Halloween weekend. As for what exactly it is? We're not sure. Some are saying this is the new title/new release date for God Particle, an original sci-fi movie produced by Bad Robot that was revealed earlier this year to be the follow-up to 10 Cloverfield Lane. Others are speculating that perhaps Paramount has some tricks up their sleeves, and is delaying the release of God Particle for the time being. We have to wait to find out the truth.

Mike Judge's 'Idiocracy' Heads Back to Theaters for 10th Anniversary

Idiocracy

It might be finally getting a proper release - 10 years later. 20th Century Fox is letting theaters screen the cult comedy Idiocracy, from writer/director Mike Judge, in theaters later this year just before the election. The Alamo Drafthouse chain has at least 25 of their cinemas listing a screening on October 4th, and more theaters across the US are being listed as well. Idiocracy is the sci-fi comedy from Mike Judge about an average guy, played by Luke Wilson, who is frozen and wakes up in the future - only to discover it's an idiotic place with Terry Crews as President Camacho running the country, and Brawndo being distributed instead of water. It's a totally wacky comedy, but it's also becoming increasingly prescient - especially with a buffoon as idiotic as Camacho in the running for President. Glad to see Fox letting this film back in theaters.

Japan's New 'Godzilla Resurgence' Will Hit US Theaters Late This Year

Godzilla: Resurgence

Good news, Godzilla fans! The new Godzilla movie from Toho Company in Japan will actually be hitting US theaters this year as well. Godzilla Resurgence, or Shin Gojira as its known in Japan, opens in theaters over there starting July 29th - this month. Announced during Comic-Con, anime distributor Funimation has revealed that they will be releasing Shin Gojira in US theaters sometime in "late 2016". The announcement was made on Funimation's Twitter, but no exact date has been set yet, though we expect to see it sometime late in the fall around November or December. We just posted the latest full trailer for Godzilla Resurgence this week and I think it looks badass, hearkening back to the original man-in-suit films from the 1950s-60s.

Malick's IMAX Film 'Voyage of Time' Officially Set to Open This October

Terrence Malick's Tree of Life

Briefly: Finally, we have an actual release date! Buried in the latest IMAX financial report (via The Film Stage) is mention of an actual release date for Terrence Malick's long-awaited IMAX movie Voyage of Time. We've been talking about this ever since The Tree of Life was released in 2011, as it was made around the same time and apparently some of the footage in the IMAX film was used in that film, too. IMAX will release "a documentary film, Voyage of Time," on October 7th, 2016. No other details were included, like a running time. Narrated by Brad Pitt & Cate Blanchett, the doc is an "examination of the birth and death of the known universe" - a voyage over millions of years, which was condensed into a sequence in Tree of Life.

Fox Sets a Date for 'Predator' in 2018; Shifts 'Alien: Covenant' in 2017

The Predator

You'll Never See Him Coming… to Theaters in March of 2018. 20th Century Fox has confirmed a couple of release dates for two upcoming, highly anticipated sci-fi movies. First up, Ridley Scott's sorta-sequel to Prometheus, titled currently Alien: Covenant, has been shifted slightly to August 4th, 2017, more than a year away. That one will open against Blazing Samurai and Pitch Perfect 3, just a few months before Star Wars: Episode VIII. Next up, we just featured the teaser poster for Shane Black's The Predator, now we have a release date - March 2nd, 2018. That will play against the "Untitled WB Event Film" also set then, and a few weeks before Spielberg's Ready Player One opens. Should be a very exciting few years for sci-fi.

'John Wick 2' to Open in 2017; 'Blade Runner 2' Set for January 2018

John Wick

Two release dates have been announced for two of our most anticipated movies coming up in the next few years. First up, the action sequel John Wick 2 has been scheduled for release starting on February 10th, 2017 - a little less than a year from now. The film has already finished shooting, partially in New York City, and apparently the plot takes Keanu Reeves to Rome to kick some more ass. Stuntman Chad Stahelski from the first one is back again to direct this one. Next up, Warner Bros has officially set a release date for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner sequel, untitled now, known simply as Blade Runner 2. That movie will open on January 12th, 2018, a few weeks after Episode VIII hits theaters in late 2017. I'm very excited for both.

Tom Tykwer's 'A Hologram for the King' Set for April 2016 Opening

A Hologram for the King

We've been waiting to see something for this one! Roadside Attractions is releasing Tom Tykwer's new film A Hologram for the King and has set an April release date. But we still have yet to see a trailer or much else. The film has been scheduled for release on April 22nd, and along with that news a batch of first look photos (and a new German poster for now) have been unveiled. A Hologram for the King stars Tom Hanks as a failed American businessman who flies to Saudi Arabia to try and sell his idea to a wealthy monarch, based on the book by Dave Eggers. Sounds good. We'll be keeping an eye on this one leading up to release.

Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Adaptation Release Pushed to 2018

Ready Player One

Briefly: This is exactly what we expected, and it's good to see Warner Bros making a smart move. WB has shifted and pushed back the release date of Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One adaptation from its original slot in December 2017 to spring of 2018 - specifically March 30th, 2018. This is mainly because Disney recently changed the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII (being directed by Rian Johnson) back to December 15th, 2017 (from May) - which was the exact same day that Ready Player One was originally set for release. It's always hard to tell whether Spielberg will make his release anyway, but this is just a big sigh of relief because there would be no point in seeing WB and Disney go head-to-head with these two massive sci-fi / fan-oriented projects. I'm excited to see both Star Wars and Ready Player One - three months apart.

James Cameron's 'Avatar 2' Might Not Be Released in 2017 After All

James Cameron's Avatar

Briefly: After the big news this week that Star Wars: Episode VIII was being pushed back from May to December 2017, all of the other studios have to check and make sure none of their releases are threatened. The ultimate showdown was going to be between Episode VIII and James Cameron's Avatar 2, which was being talked about for Christmas 2017 release. Just as of a few weeks ago, Cameron was saying it was still headed for Christmas. However, The Wrap is now confirming that the studio is no longer planning a 2017 release anymore, and maybe be aiming for 2018 or 2019 but they're still not sure yet. Nothing is confirmed or set yet by 20th Century Fox, but this is what we expected to hear after the Star Wars release date change.

Disney Pushes Release of 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' to December 2017

Star Wars: Episode VIII

Briefly: It's official - Disney has moved the release date of Star Wars: Episode VIII from May 2017 to December 2017. The highly-anticipated sequel to The Force Awakens, being directed by Rian Johnson, was originally scheduled by Lucasfilm/Disney for May 26th, 2017. Now it has been rescheduled for release on December 15th, 2017. This puts it in line with the December release for The Force Awakens and the December release for Rogue One later this year. This also now pits Episode VIII to open head-to-head against James Cameron's Avatar 2, which is supposed to open Christmas 2017. A few other studios have shifted 2017 releases in response. The fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie will take over Star Wars' slot.

James Cameron Confirms 'Avatar 2' Will Be Arriving Christmas 2017

James Cameron - Avatar

Oh boy. 2017 is shaping up to be a very big year between Episode VIII, Justice League, War for the Planet of the Apes. In December of 2017, they'll be pitting James Cameron's Avatar 2 against Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One adaptation. The next Star Wars movie is already confirmed for May of 2017, and now Cameron has confirmed that Avatar 2 is headed for release in December of 2017. It was initially reported in January that Cameron was delaying the release until 2017 giving them more time to work on the scripts and put plans together. This is going to be a brand new Avatar trilogy, with new ones coming every year.
