Michael Bay's 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot gets new release date

Looks like you’ll have a little longer to work on your Raphael costume. Paramount Pictures has pushed the release date of the Michael Bay Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot (where they’re all aliens) to June 6, 2014, EW has confirmed. The movie was originally scheduled for release on May 16, 2014.

It’s been a controversial road for Bay’s reboot, with many fans remaining worried about his changes from the original show. The project also made headlines after Megan Fox was cast in the role of April O’Neil. Some PopWatchers believed that Anna Kendrick would be better for the role, but sadly we were not consulted.

The movie now comes out just one week before the cautiously-anticipated Jurassic Park 4.

The release of the action fairytale Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D has been pushed back yet again, EW has confirmed. The Tommy Wirkola-directed film starring Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, and Famke Janseen will now hit theaters on Jan. 25.

The film was initially slated for March 2012, then moved to early-January 2013, reportedly to capitalize on the success of Renner’s blockbusters, The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy. This most recent two-week delay coincides with the announcement that Paramount will feature the movie in IMAX theaters, making it 2013′s first new film to debut on the giant-screen venues.

Director Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D film The Great Gatsby will open in theaters nationwide and in Canada on May 10, then worldwide the following week. The film was initially scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas day, but Warner Bros. pushed the release back last August.

The adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic 1925 novel stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton. The film will now be able to “beat on, against the current” as it will no longer be competing with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Les MisérablesThis is 40, Zero Dark ThirtyDjango Unchained, and other December blockbusters.

“Audiences have been looking forward to Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of one of the most beloved books of all time, and we felt this beautifully extravagant and dramatic film would be a perfect way for us to kick off our Summer slate,” president of Warner Bros. domestic distribution Dan Fellman said in press release.

pain-gain-poster

Paramount has announced an April 26 release date for Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain, starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, based on a 1999 Miami New Times story about bodybuilders who turn to kidnapping, torture, and murder. “I just love the characters,” Bay told Entertainment Weekly back in 2007. “It’s these guys that work in a gym, and nothing is good enough, do you know what I mean? The pump is not good enough. They are all looking for the American dream. They end up kidnapping. It’s like a mixture of Fargo and Pulp Fiction and it’s all true. And they’re all knuckleheads. It’s a fun character piece. No action. One car crash.”

Get ready for a Misérables holiday season.

The release date for Tom Hooper’s big screen musical adaptation of Les Misérables has been moved from Dec. 14 to Dec. 25 to make it a very merry Christmas for all. The film, which is based on both the musical and Victor Hugo novel of the same name, features a strong ensemble cast that includes Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, Russell Crowe as Inspector Javert, and Anne Hathaway as Fantine.

Set during the 19th century, Les Misérables tells the story of the prisoner Valjean, who has been on the run for decades from Javert. When Fantine asks Valjean to take care of her daughter, all of their lives are irrevocably altered.

Les Misérables will now open opposite Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

'Godzilla' reboot to terrorize theaters in 2014

One of the biggest surprises at this past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con was the announcement that Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures had formally greenlighted a reboot of the venerable monster movie franchise Godzilla, with a little-known director, Gareth Edwards (the British indie Monsters), at the helm. Today, the studios announced that Edwards’ self-professed “grounded [and] realistic” take on the fire-breathing giant lizard is set to sweep into multiplexes on May 16, 2014.

The statement also officially credited the film’s screenplay to David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy), and newcomer Max Borenstein. It also noted that the film “is expected to be presented in 3-D,” though it did not specify if the film would be shot natively in the format, or converted in post-production.

No casting was revealed.

Brad Pitt crime drama 'Killing Them Softly' moves to November

If you’re keen on seeing Brad Pitt step into the dark side as a lethal mob enforcer in Killing Them Softly — and, really, who doesn’t want to see Pitt get a little dirty? — you’ll have to wait a bit longer.

EW has confirmed that the Weinstein Company has pushed the crime drama, which reunites Pitt with director Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), from its Oct. 19 release date to Nov. 30. (Deadline first broke the story.) The move pits the film against The Frozen Ground, a true crime thriller starring Nicolas Cage and John Cusack (instead of Alex Cross and Paranormal Activity 4, which open Oct. 19), and also places Pitt more firmly in the thick of the Oscar season. It’s also a bit of a risk; typically, the weekend after Thanksgiving faces a roughly 50 percent drop off in box office receipts.
