Sandra Bullock/George Clooney drama 'Gravity' gets new release date

EW can confirm that Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity — a sci-fi epic starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney — will finally come to Earth Oct. 4, 2013.

The 3-D film, Cuarón’s first since 2006’s Children of Men, finds Clooney and Bullock playing astronauts who are stranded when their space station is damaged. Gravity was originally scheduled for a Nov. 21, 2012 release before being pushed back last May to avoid competition from blockbusters like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Skyfall.

With its new release date, Gravity will now be going up against the 3-D conversion of Revenge of the Sith, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel, and Paranoia, a thriller starring Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth.

'Robopocalypse': Steven Spielberg sci-fi saga put on hold

Robopocalypse

UPDATE: Steven Spielberg tells EW Robopocalypse is still on, just undergoing a full overhaul.

The Mayans were wrong about the end of the world, and it looks like robot Armageddon is on hold, too.

Steven Spielberg had planned to make the film adaptation of the novel Robopocalypse with Anne Hathaway this summer, with a date already set for April 24, 2014. But it looks like that’s not going to happen.

'Ender's Game': Harrison Ford stares down Asa Butterfield in first photo -- EXCLUSIVE

Anyone who has read Orson Scott Card’s beloved 1985 sci-fi novel, Ender’s Game, can understand why, for the past 20 years, Hollywood has been unable to adapt the book. After all, it’s challenging enough to shoot a movie about pint-sized military recruits fighting each other in a futuristic, space-set Battle School, but it’s an even taller order to capture the novel’s complex themes about war and morality.

Fortunately for fans of the book, the long wait for a film adaptation is (almost) over. Ender’s Game will hit theaters on Nov. 1, 2013 (Summit Entertainment has just launched the film’s official Facebook page), and EW has your exclusive first look at the movie — as well as the first interview with director Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).  READ FULL STORY

trek-poster-cu-01

That wily J.J. Abrams: He gives us just enough yummy crumbs to tantalize our taste buds for the full meal. His latest tease, the poster for next summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness, is just such an appetizer platter. It contains a handful of surprising clues as to what he’s got cooking for his follow-up to his 2009 reboot of the Star Trek franchise, clues designed to ignite deep-dish geek outs across our glorious planet. So let’s not waste any more time and begin considering each of these engaging morsels one by one:  READ FULL STORY

'Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol' director tweets he won't helm 'Star Wars'

Cross off another director from the line-up of all-stars who’ve been eyed to helm the next Star Wars movie. Brad Bird — who, along with Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams, was approached by Lucasfilm to direct the next chapter in the behemoth franchise tweeted four simple words Saturday that no doubt rocked his nearly 50k followers: “Not doing Star Wars.”

Bird (Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol) went on to tweet that “Michael Arndt is a fantastic writer and Kathy Kennedy is a brilliant producer. I will be first in line to see the new STAR WARS.” Bird reminded his followers that he’s focused on 1952, a sci-fi project for Disney (co-written by EW senior writer Jeff Jensen and Lost scribe Damon Lindelof). He’s been traveling abroad recently to scout locations for the film.

Last week, Abrams told EW’s Geoff Boucher that the next Star Wars isn’t in the cards for him, as he has “some original stuff I am working on next.” Abrams is in post-production on Star Trek Into Darkness, a sequel to his 2009 hit Star Trek.

'They Live': John Carpenter on why his sci-fi classic is as timely as ever, plus EXCLUSIVE clips from the new Blu-ray

As Americans get ready to head to the polls, the timing couldn’t be better for a fresh look at John Carpenter’s 1988 sci-fi flick They Live. Fortunately, a brand new Blu-ray version of the film is hitting stores on election day. Aside from a slew of new bonus features and a crisp-as-a-hundred-dollar-bill high-def transfer, the film (about a blue-collar drifter who finds a pair of sunglasses that allow him see that aliens have turned us all into passive zombies) comes complete with an incendiary class-warfare political message that’s just as relevant today as it was back at the height of the Reagan/Bush era. If all of that doesn’t seal the deal, there’s also this: the sight of pro wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper spouting his gem of a one-liner: I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubble gum.”

On the eve of the Blu-ray’s release, we got an EXCLUSIVE peek at some of the disc’s new extras and spoke with Carpenter about his rage-against-the-machine classic…  READ FULL STORY

'Cockneys vs. Zombies' will lurch into U.S. cinemas next year

Cockneys-vs-Zombies-Trailer.jpg

Rejoice, fans of cockneys, zombies, and British sitcom legend Richard Briers. Shout Factory! announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to the U.K. horror-comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies. The company plans a multi-platform roll out which will include making the film available through video-on-demand, DVD and Blu-ray releases, and distributing the movie to select cinemas. In addition to Briers, Cockneys vs. Zombies stars Honor Blackman (British TV show The Avengers), Alan Ford (Snatch), and onetime Bionic Woman Michelle Ryan.

Shout Factory! is also set to distribute the action-thriller Tower Block, which like Cockneys vs. Zombies was penned by James Moran, whose other credits include Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the 2006 horror film Severance.

You can check out the extremely foul-mouthed red-band trailer for Cockneys vs. Zombies below. READ FULL STORY

'Big Trouble In Little China' gets the 'Gangnam Style' treatment in parody clip -- VIDEO

big-trouble-in-little-china.jpg

For much of the 1986 martial arts action-comedy Big Trouble In Little China, Kurt Russell’s truck-driving hero Jack Burton exists in a state of complete, and hilarious, confusion (“Where are we, Wang?” “What’s happening, Wang?” “Jesus Christ, where are we?”). So heaven knows what Burton would have to say about the new, jaw-droppingly elaborate parody clip “Lo Pan Style” which melds director John Carpenter’s way-ahead-of-its-time movie with Psy’s globe-conquering horsey-hit “Gangnam Style.” But the video does feature James Hong, who actually played the villainous Lo Pan in the original film, and has also apparently been given the thumbs up by Carpenter himself – which is good enough for us.

'Dredd 3D': Check out the Mondo poster for tomorrow's Fantastic Fest screening -- EXCLUSIVE

dredd-3d

Splundig vur thrigg, Earthlets!

If you recognize that reference to the Judge Dredd strip-spawning U.K. comic 2000ADand its alien editor “Tharg” — then you, like me, may have been waiting upwards of 35 years for a decent movie featuring Mega-City One’s top cop to arrive in cinemas (don’t get me started on the Sly Stone-starring 1995 fiasco).

Judging by the current Rotten Tomatoes rating for Dredd 3D — and my colleague Darren Franich’s enthusiastic review of the film in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly — that wait will end this Friday when the Karl Urban-toplined actioner hits screens across the country. However, lucky attendees of this year’s Fantastic Fest shindig in Austin, Tex., will be seeing the film tomorrow at a screening attended by Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and screenwriter Alex Garland. To mark the occasion, the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique arm Mondo has commissioned a special poster by the artist Jock that will be available to purchase at Fantastic Fest (any unpurchased posters will be sold online.)

You can inspect said artifact above and, in larger form, below (along with the Dredd 3D trailer). I think you’ll agree it’s pretty zarjaz. READ FULL STORY
