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 Variety. The movie, starring Braff himself and Kate Hudson, will begin showing in other cities on July 25.

Ant-Man fans, rejoice! EW has confirmed that Disney recently pushed up the superhero film’s 2015 release date. Originally set to hit theaters on Nov. 6, 2015, Ant-Man, directed and co-written by The World’s End helmer Edgar Wright, is now scheduled to arrive on the big screen on July 31, 2015, which will put it in the orbit of fellow summer 2015 sure-fire blockbusters Avengers: Age of Ultron, set for May 1, 2015, and Zack Snyder’s untitled Man of Steel sequel, slotted for release on July 17, 2015.

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 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.
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.
The follow-up to 2011′s The Muppets just got a little more specific. Previously titled Muppets…Again! the Disney movie’s new title is Muppets Most Wanted.
The new moniker is fitting for the movie’s storyline that has the Muppets entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine — the world’s No. 1 criminal, who has a striking resemblance to Kermit — and his sidekick Dominic, played by Ricky Gervais. Modern Family star Ty Burrell and Tina Fey also star in the film opening March 21, 2014.
Disney released updates on a few of its other upcoming films Thursday. Read on for the latest on Into the Woods, Saving Mr. Banks, and more. READ FULL STORY
