Last year, 'The Smurfs' made more money than you'd ever think: $142 Million domestic and $564 Million worldwide. So it's no surprise it's spawned a sequel, which will be hitting theaters in 2013. Great. Now there's a trailer for 'The Smurfs 2.'
'Tron: Legacy,' like 'Tron' before it, was hyped and hoped to be the next big thing. With 'Legacy,' Disney spent years prepping audiences for the return of the light cycle and deadly discs to the big screen, even though the first film was viewed as a cult hit that tried and failed to be the next 'Star Wars.' But even though 'Tron: Legacy' was not the runaway success hoped for, Disney may be going back for more.
Though the trailer won't hit the web until December 17, and the film doesn't hit theaters until May 2013, 'Star Trek Into Darkness' has just released their teaser for the trailer that's coming. Yup, this nonsense again, but at least this one's a minute long.
One of 2013's first films, 'Gangster Squad,' has had such a troubled production history that it's become an underdog. Originally scheduled for September of this year, it was bumped to January because of the 'The Dark Knight Rises' shooting, and had to go through re-shoots because it had people being gunned down in a theater. But - even though we're in the heart of Oscar season - the film's release is a little over a month away and now there's a featurette for the film.
'Safety Not Guaranteed' director Colin Trevorrow was being buzzed about recently as a possible helmer for 'Star Wars Episode 7.' He recently said he was out of the running (and we may know who the director is), but it's not like he isn't moving on to bigger things. He's now attached (with writing partner Derek Connolly) to Disney's 'Flight of the Navigator' remake.
We've seen competing asteroid pictures, competing "Friends with Benefits" films, competing destructive volcano pictures, but in 2012 we're getting competing "Bonding with your parents" movies, both within a week of each other. First comes 'The Guilt Trip' on December 19, and then 'Parental Guidance' on December 25. Now there's a new trailer for the latter.
Though it's yet to have the staying power of superhero films, of late every few months there's a new movie based on a Young Adult novel about a special young girl involved in a world of magic or a dystopian future. This genre needs a nickname, stat. February will bring us the adaptation of 'Beautiful Creatures,' and now there's a new trailer.
Oh boy, we're in for a long road to 2015. That's when we'll get 'Star Wars - Episode 7' in theaters, but from now until then we're going to be dealing with a lot of rumors about the new 'Star Wars.' Today we heard that Matthew Vaughnmight be the film's director, and now we're hearing that it's possible Harrison Ford could join the new film.
Yesterday we learned that Michael Arndt had written a treatment for the upcoming 'Star Wars' sequel, currently called 'Episode 7,' but that didn't seem a confirmation that he had the job. Today it looks like his work has been approved and he's the first writer to take a crack at a new 'Star Wars' film.
It's been quiet on the 'Muppet 2' front for a while. We knew that James Bobin would return to write and direct, with writing assistance from Nicholas Stoller, and we knew that the sequel would be Jason Segel-free. But it looks like now they've started the casting process for the next film, and the first name is a bit of a surprise: Christoph Waltz.
George Lucas has been the master of 'Star Wars' since its inception and though spin-off cartoons and games have been the norm for years, the film series seemed done with after six movies. Disney has just purchased Lucasfilm for over four billion dollars, and have just announced that they're planning on a new movie for sometime in 2015.
