…and a few things more!
Ever since the release of his film Interstellar, many film fans have been waiting to hear what Christopher Nolan would be doing next. Well, we still may not know what Nolan is doing next, but we do know when he’ll be doing it. Warner Bros has set July 21st 2017 as the release date for Nolan’s next movie, but at this time absolutely no details are available. June 21st puts the new film just 1 week after the opening of War of the Planet of the Apes, opening the same day as Pitch Perfect 3 and just one week before the opening of the new Spider-Man film by Sony Pictures.
Production has officially begun on the fifth installment of the Bourne franchise. Actor Matt Damon is returning to the franchise after a one film absence, and the first picture of fim from the new movie has surfaced online. Little is known about the new film other than the fact that it will not feature a crossover between Damon’s Bourne and Jeremy Renner’s Aaron Cross from the previous Bourne film.
BUY OR SELL
The first trailer for the upcoming Jake Gyllenhaal film Demolition has appeared online. In Demolition, Gyllenhaal plays Davis, a successful investment banker who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (played by Chris Cooper) to pull it together, he continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. His letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (played by Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son, Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
Actor Michael Fassbender is keeping busy these days and according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, he just got a little bit busier. Fassbender has apparently joined the upcoming project The Snowman with Let the Right One In and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy director Tomas Alfredson. It is November in Oslo and the first snow of the year has fallen. Birte Becker comes home from work and praises the snowman her husband and son have made in the garden. But they haven’t made a snowman. As the family stand by the sitting room window looking out in amazement at the snowman, the son notices that it is facing the house. The black eyes are staring at the window. Staring at them.
The first trailer for Krampus has just hit the web. The film is directed by Trick R Treat helmer Michael Dougherty and is described as follows: When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.

David Sickles writes: Hey guys, love the show. The trailer for Batman v. Superman is amazing, and I can’t wait to see it, but it’s not scheduled for release until March. However, it seems like the film is mostly done, with the exception of maybe a little bit of editing, so why wait 6 months? It seems like a November, December (excluding the 18th, obviously), or January release would suit it just as well, and not have much if any impact on box office results. So why wait?
Cyrus Sarkari writes: Hey Collider! Thanks for all your shows and hard work. In the UK one of our biggest cinema companies has a deal which we pay a set price of £16.90 a month and for that we can see any films 2D and 3D for free that month unless it’s a D-box, IMAX or IMAX 3D film then we have to pay a small add on for it, plus we get 25% of food and drink at the cinema and we also get a number of discounts at certain restaurants. For me as a big film fan this is amazing as I can see pretty much see any film and can see them more than once. For my question, do you think this type of offer from certain cinema chains in the U.S. would work and do you guys have anything like this in the U.S.?
