Judgment is coming to cinemas this Friday. No, we’re not referring to EW’s weekly film reviews — though you should definitely check those out as well — but rather the arrival in multiplexes of Dredd 3D.

Box office update: 'Resident Evil: Retribution' wins Friday with $8.4 million; 'The Master' huge in limited release
After a successful opening Friday, horror/action sequel Resident Evil: Retribution is headed for an easy weekend win — the fourth straight number one opening for a Resident Evil film.
Sony’s $65 million Retribution grossed $8.4 million on Friday, 22 percent less than the $10.7 million opening Friday of 2010′s Resident Evil: Afterlife, which ultimately found $26.7 million over its first three days. Retribution‘s gross puts it on pace for a $22 million weekend, which would be smaller than both 2006′s Resident Evil: Extinction ($23.7 million) and 2004′s Resident Evil: Apocalypse ($23.0 million), but ahead of franchise launchpad Resident Evil, which started with $17.7 million in 2002.

After last weekend’s depressing box office frame, things are looking utterly swimming this time around, thanks to the 3-D re-release of Finding Nemo, which will likely top the chart.
Also opening this weekend is the fifth(!) Resident Evil film, which is headed for solid results, and faith-based title Last Ounce of Courage, which is being distributed by the same studio that pushed 2016: Obama’s America to financial success.
Here’s how the weekend box office might shake out: READ FULL STORY
Does the lack of the word “Massacre” in the freshly truncated title of Texas Chainsaw 3D indicate that this sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will find Leatherface settling his problems through the power of rhetoric? Apparently not, judging by the movie’s first trailer which features mechanical woodcutting device-related mayhem aplenty.
Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and set for release on January 4, TC3D stars Dan Yeager as the axe-snubbing Leatherface and Alexandra Daddario as a woman who inherits a mansion with dank cellars. Are those cellars filled with vintage wine and aged cheeses? Again, judging by the trailer, it seems not.
You can watch the clip below. Take a look and tell us what you think.
We haven’t heard much from Monty Python comedy team member Graham Chapman recently. Although, as directors Bill Jones and Ben Timlett point out in the production notes for their new animated Chapman biopic A Liar’s Autobiography, that’s mostly because the troubled funnyman has been dead since 1989.
Before his demise, however, Chapman recorded an audio version of his memoirs — also called A Liar’s Autobiography — and will thus be heard in the film alongside the freshly recorded voices of his fellow Pythons Terry Jones, John Cleese, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam.
Blame Jar Jar Binks. In the wake of last winter’s successful 3-D release of The Phantom Menace, Lucasfilm has announced that the movie’s fellow prequels, Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, will be translated into the third dimension as well.
According to the official Star Wars Facebook page, these films will hit theaters again next fall. Clones will begin playing Sept. 20, 2013, while Sith will follow on Oct. 11.
George Lucas’s movies won’t be 2013′s only major re-releases. Universal announced two weeks ago that Jurassic Park 3D will debut on April 5, while Disney revealed in 2011 that enhanced versions of both Monsters, Inc. and The Little Mermaid will appear in theaters on Jan. 18 and Sept. 13, respectively.

The minions are coming, the minions are coming! Our favorite short, yellow, overall-clad, goggle-sporting workers from 2010′s animated film Despicable Me — which starred Steve Carell, Jason Segel, and Russell Brand — and 2013′s upcoming Despicable Me 2 will be coming to a theater near you on Dec. 19, 2014, EW has confirmed.
The 3D-CG spinoff will be directed by Pierre Coffin, who co-directed the original movie and its upcoming sequel with Chris Renaud. This new minions project will be co-directed by Kyle Balda. The film will also be produced by Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. This project marks Universal Pictures’ fifth motion picture collaboration with Illumination.

Jenny from the block is big-screen bound once more. EW has confirmed that the former American Idol judge is currently shooting footage for a forthcoming 3D concert film. The movie, titled Dance Again, will be an account of Lopez’s career over the last few years. No word yet on how Idol will figure in, but it’s got to be more than a footnote in the final product.
Lopez, a co-star of this spring’s underwhelming ensemble comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting, will be taking a gamble by making a concert film. While Justin Bieber‘s 2011 multidimensional flick was a box-office hit, similar efforts by the Jonas Brothers, the cast of Glee, and Katy Perry all underperformed. Perhaps Lopez could try courting success by appealing to Millennial nostalgia in her movie; after all, it’s working for 98 Degrees.

Avatar director James Cameron’s company is launching a joint venture in China to market its 3-D technical wizardry to the country’s fast-developing film and television industries. Cameron Pace Group’s announcement Wednesday comes as the fast growth of China’s film market is attracting Hollywood studios that are rushing to link up with local partners.
The venture with two Chinese partners will supply 3-D filming technology and production services, said Cameron and his business partner, Vince Pace. They said they are discussing possible collaboration with state broadcaster China Central Television on developing 3-D TV. “This is an enormous untapped market that is right on the verge of the transition from 2-D to 3-D,” said Cameron in an interview. “This is the best place for us to create a kind of second home.” READ FULL STORY
