Attention women and gay men everywhere: Your American Dreams are about to come true.

Warner Bros. announced Tuesday that the hotly anticipated sequel Magic Mike XXL will be released July 3, 2015, just in time for Independence Day.

Tatum is currently writing the sequel, which will be directed by Gregory Jacobs, Soderbergh’s assistant on the first film and many of his other work. READ FULL STORY

Zach Braff's Kickstarter-funded 'Wish I Was Here' gets July release date

Zach Braff made headlines back in the spring when he launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a sort-of-follow-up to his 2004 indie hit Garden State. The campaign worked, and he was able to make Wish I Was Here, a film about a 35-year-old dad who is lost but starts to find his way as he home-schools his kids. The film premiered at Sundance in January, and audiences will get to see the film in theaters beginning with a July 18 release date in New York and Los Angeles, according to VarietyThe movie, starring Braff himself and Kate Hudson, will begin showing in other cities on July 25.

'Ant-Man' claims vacated Superman/Batman release date

Edgar Wright’s take on Marvel’s Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, will be released on July 17, 2015 — two weeks earlier than scheduled. Marvel announced the news on its site on Thursday. Its only direct competition now is Warner Bros.’ Pan.

This scheduling takes advantage of the fact that Warner Bros. just pushed its Man of Steel sequel back nine months to a May 6, 2016, release. It previously held the July 17, 2015, spot, which was likely why Ant-Man had built in that two-week buffer. Other July 2015 releases include the Terminator reboot, Minions, and Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck.

It’s all speculation at this point, but in general, these moves are good for Ant-Man – another potential franchise in the Marvel universe.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' release moved to Valentine's Day 2015 -- EXCLUSIVE

Universal Pictures just turned Valentine’s Day 2015 into a sure thing for millions of men. The studio is moving its release date for the movie adaptation of the erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey out of next summer and onto Valentine’s Day weekend 2015, turning what was sure to be a Girls Night Out event into an epic Date Night.

The news, reported exclusively in this week’s EW cover story, comes on the heels of the studio’s announcement that it has pushed the start of production in Vancouver back a month to allow for the production to prep with its new leading man, Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan, who plays kinky billionaire Christian Grey. But, Universal says, the casting change is not the primary reason for the new release date.

'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' pushed to January

EW has confirmed that Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has dropped off the Christmas release schedule and will now open Jan. 17, 2014.

The Paramount Pictures’ action movie is based on characters from late author Tom Clancy and stars Chris Pine (Star Trek) as a young CIA analysis who uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack. Kenneth Branagh (Valkyrie), Kevin Costner (Man of Steel), and Kiera Knightly (Anna Karenina) will also star alongside Pine in the upcoming action thriller directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Could a Christmas Day release date announcement for Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street be just around the corner? The speculation remains high that Jack Ryan’s move could be a strategic effort by Paramount to announce a Dec. 25 release date for Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio (The Great Gatsby) and Matthew McConaughey  (Mud).

Moving Wolf Of Wall Street into Jack Ryan’s old release date of Christmas Day would effectively keep the film in the running for the Oscars but as of yet, Paramount has not commented on whether they will release the Scorsese film before the end of the year not.

Watch the trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit below:

Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' remake pushed back to November

We’ll have to wait a little longer to see how Spike Lee has reimagined Park Chan-wook’s 2003 thriller.

FilmDistrict has shifted the film’s release date for the second time. Originally, Oldboy 2.0 was scheduled to open Oct. 11. But in May, the distributor changed the release date to Oct. 25 — and now it’s been pushed back once more, to the much more crowded date of Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving.

Only two other movies are currently scheduled to open in wide release on Oct. 25: The Counselor, starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, and Javier Bardem, and Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Now that it’s been delayed a month, though, Oldboy will be competing against three wide releases (Black Nativity, Frozen, and Homefront), as well as the limited releases Grace of Monaco and Out of the Furnace. TWC’s Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is scheduled for release Nov. 29 as well.

Oldboy follows an ad exec (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held in solitary confinement for 20 years. When he’s finally released, he seeks vengeance — only to find himself still entangled in a conspiracy. Check out the red-band trailer below.

'The Book Thief' sets November release date

The movie adaptation of 2006 bestseller The Book Thief will be released November 15 of this year. Previously, the Fox movie adaptation of Markus Zusak’s story was expected to be released sometime in 2014; the earlier date suggests studio confidence and a possible awards-season bid.

The Book Thief, which in the novel form is narrated by “Death,” will star newcomer Sophie Nelisse as the titular heroine Liesel, a young girl who is shipped off to live with a foster family in Nazi Germany. With the help of her foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors as well as with the Jewish man her parents are hiding in their basement.

The movie, directed by Brian Percival (Downton Abbey), will also star Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie has release date

Go ahead and mark your calendar: Fifty Shades of Grey has received a release date of August 1, 2014, EW has confirmed.

This follows the news that Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) will direct the film, which has not yet cast the lead roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. The script, based on E L James’ novel, will be written by Kelly Marcel. Focus and Universal paid $5 million in March 2012 for movie rights to the best-selling trilogy.

Other Fifty Shades news? Hollywood Reporter writes that the steamy film might be a good candidate for a premium VOD option concurrent with its theatrical release. This obviously makes sense giving the explicit subject matter. A rep for Universal did not immediately have a comment regarding that rumor.
