Universal pushes 'Everest' release to Sept. 2015

Universal Pictures has pushed back the release date of the upcoming epic adventure Everest.

The film starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and John Hawkes was originally scheduled for release in 3D and IMAX on February 27, 2015. Instead, the film will now have a fall release seven months later on September 18th, 2015.

Universal had no official comment for the reason for the move. Could it possibly have to do with the other Everest movie being made?

Everest tells the true story of two different expeditions challenged by harsh elements that result in an epic  struggle for survival. The film is directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns) and written by for the screen by Mark Medoff (Children of a Lesser God) and Oscar winner Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire).  The film is currently shooting on location in Nepal and Italy.

New release dates for 'Expendables 3,' 'Escape Plan,' and 'Non-Stop'

2014 may seem like a long time from now, but studios are already filling their slates and shifting around release dates for later this year and into next. Below, a few of the latest release date changes:

Universal’s Non-Stop, starring Liam Neeson, has set its theatrical release date for February 21, 2014.

The Joel Silver-produced action thriller is set almost entirely within the cabin of a plane traveling from New York to London. As the U.S. Air Marshal on board, Neeson’s character begins to receive a series of text messages threatening to kill passengers unless the anonymous terrorist gets $150 million delivered to an off-shore account. Everyone on board is suddenly a suspect, including Neeson’s seat mate, played by Julianne Moore, and Michelle Dockery as a flight attendant.

'Timecop' reboot in the works at Universal

Universal Pictures announced Wednesday that it plans to reboot the time travel action movie Timecop in a partnership with production company Global Produce.

Based on Mark Verheiden’s Dark Horse Comics title Time Cop, the original film imagined a world where time travel would be possible and where police regulate its usage. Peter Hyams’ 1994 film starred Jean-Claude Van Damme as an officer who tries to go back in time to save his wife from being killed — and stymie the endemic corruption that has emerged as a result of time-travel technology.

Dolby Atmos and the future of immersive sound

Planning to check out a summer blockbuster in the next few months? Chances are it was developed for Dolby Atmos, the in-theater audio technology that’s revolutionizing the immersive moviegoing experience.

If the name sounds familiar, that’s because the first films heard in Dolby Atmos came out almost a year ago, starting with Disney and Pixar’s Brave. It’s the next iteration of what is generally known as surround sound. With speakers on the ceiling and in basically every corner of a theater, the 128 channels create a sound experience akin to watching a film in 3-D. It’s all-encompassing.

EW spoke with Skywalker Sound’s Juan Peralta about Dolby Atmos and how it is helping to make the theater experience more engrossing.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' screenwriter wants NC-17 rating, studio says no rating designated yet

FIFTY-SHADES-OF-GREY_510x317.jpg

Given the level of kinkiness expected, no, DEMANDED, by fans for the upcoming screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, it’s no surprise that the movie’s screenwriter has trumpeted the call for an NC-17 rating.

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel recently told British newspaper The Sunday Times, “It will be rated NC-17. It will be raunchy.” Marcel also didn’t reveal who she thought would snag the prized roles of randy pair Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey featured in the hit E L James novel.

Of course an adults-only NC-17 rating would potentially mean far fewer theater goers, and Universal Pictures nipped Marcel’s fervor in the bud.

“A screenplay has not yet been written, a rating has not been designated and we have no further comment,” said a Universal spokesperson in a statement to EW.
