Movies Anywhere

An app and website called Movies Anywhere has officially launched, which allows users to bring together their digital movie collections. So far, five Hollywood giants (Walt Disney Studios, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Entertainment) and four digital retailers (Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu) are taking part. And the best part? It’s free to use.

Those who are among the dwindling number of people who still prefer physical media, myself included, won’t have much use for such a service (but even we can use those digital copy codes that come with physical copies to build a little back-up collection). But for the rest of you, continue below for full details including how you can score five free digital movies.

Young Frankenstein Gene Wilder

Fathom Events and Twentieth Century Fox are preparing to welcome you back to Transylvania to join Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronkensteen”) and his crazy cohorts for one more night of mad science and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” In a special one-night-only event, director Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein is returning to U.S. theaters, Wednesday night, October 5th at 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT, 6:00pm MT, 5:00pm PT).

Fox Sets Release Dates For ‘Fantastic Four’ & ‘Wolverine’ Sequels, Untitled Marvel Movie Among Others

BAADASSSSS!   |

The Wolverine Hugh Jackman Image Header

20th Century Fox never lets a little thing like their upcoming films having not actually gone into production yet stop them from setting release dates. That’s common practice for most studios these days, but Fox was one of the earliest pioneers of that practice, and for better or worse the filmmakers working under them have had to adapt or hit the bricks. Nothing personal, just business.

In keeping with that fine tradition, the studio has recently announced a slew of new dates for some of the biggest projects on their production slate for the coming years. Even though the long-in-development Fantastic Four reboot helmed by Josh Trank (Chronicle) still hasn’t began shooting, its hypothetical sequel already has a release date set for July 14, 2017. Fox is also continuing to exploit their other profitable Marvel properties with another Wolverine sequel debuting on March 3, 2017 (with James Mangold, director of last year’s terrific The Wolverine, returning), and a mysterious Marvel feature set for July 13, 2018.

Mind MGMT

Every week it seems like another comic book property is getting bought up by a film company with the hopes of turning it into a movie or TV show, and this week is no different as Deadline reports that Matt Kindt’s Mind MGMT was picked up by Twentieth Century Fox. Helping bring the series to life will be famed director Ridley Scott, who is set to produce the series through his Scott Free production company.

Mind MGMT is published by Dark Horse Comics and follows the story of Meru, a writer trying to finish her second book. Her plan is to track down the reason why a flight full of passengers all came down with amnesia. Her journey sets her on the path of one Harry Lime, who ends up being part of a mysterious government group known as Mind MGMT. The organization is made up of various psychics who have been guiding the world for decades. The first six issues of the series can easily be adapted to the screen and we’ll have to see if anymore of the series works its way into the script.

DreamWorks Animation

Rise of the Guardians will be one of Paramount and DreamWorks Animation’s last projects together. Recently, Paramount let their deal with DA expire and moved forward with its own animation studio venture, which left the acclaimed animation studio partnering up with 20th Century Fox for an all new distribution deal. Now we are getting a look at the DreamWorks Animation line up for the next four years.

DreamWorks Animation slate includes a great mix of sequels, spin offs, and original titles. Anticipated titles like How to Train Your Dragon 2, Kung Fu Panda 3, and The Penguins of Madagascar are just some of the well known titles being released in the next four years, Mr. Peabody and Herman, The Croods, Turbo, and Me and My Shadow are also just some of the original titles also expect to hit between now and the next four years.

DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffery Katzenberg Inks New Partnership With Fox

DreamWorks Animation

Rise of the Guardians will be DreamWorks Animation’s final animated feature over at Paramount. The two companies have worked together on films like Kung-Fu Panda, Shrek, and How To Train Your Dragon. With the deal between the two set to expire later this year, Paramount is moving forward with their own Animation department and DreamWorks Animation has set up a new partnership with 20th Century Fox.

Don’t worry about the other animated partnership between Fox and Blue Sky Studios (Rio Ice and Ice Age). Apparently that is safe and secure. The most interesting thing is that Fox will now be the home of DreamWorks Animation projects as well. According to Deadline, the new deal says that DWA is now locked in to produce animated features for Fox until 2017. Fox will receive 8% of the earnings made from theatrical and dvd sales, but they will earn a lower amount from digital and other forms of distribution.

Fox Request For Extension On Daredevil Property Denied; Rights Will Return To Marvel

Daredevil: Born Again Reboot

After being the center of the superhero news for the better part of the past few weeks, it looks like we are at the final lap of the controlling film rights to Daredevil. Even though Fox loved the vision that director Joe Carnahan laid out, it wasn’t enough for them to get the film into production before the October 10th deadline, which means that they are letting the deal expire and the rights will revert back to Marvel.

Variety reports that Fox had turned in an extension request to keep the character, only to see that request be denied. Yesterday, Carnahan recently tweeted that he didn’t expect to get the film into production any time soon and that his dreams of bringing his vision of Daredevil to life were pretty much dead. Last night, the director posted sizzle reel he created to pitch his vision of Daredevil to Fox.

Marc Webb

The success of The Amazing Spider-Man has paved the way for Sony to turn the film into a trilogy. This could not have happened if it wasn’t for director Marc Webb. Of course Webb is expected to return to his post to direct its sequel, but since he owes Fox – the studio that helped finance and distribute (500) Days of Summer – one more film, that he may not be able to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Now comes word that Fox may be willing to let Webb make the Spidey sequel … for a price.

James Cameron talks about Avatar sequels

Though James Cameron has stated that he will be working on nothing but Avatar sequels, there hasn’t been much development since the announcement was made. Fox had planned to release Avatar 2 in 2014, but producer John Landau stated that in addition to presenting the film using cutting edge 3D technology, they also wanted to shoot the film at 60 frames per second. An average film shoots at 24 FPS and Peter Jackson doubled the rate with The Hobbit films, which were shot at 48 FPS.

Now in an interview with the New York Times, Cameron confirmed that Avatar 2 would not be ready until at 2015 or later. This puts the film’s release a year past the one Fox had projected.

Star Wars 3DLucasfilm has announced that the first Star Wars 3D release, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, will hit theaters on February 10, 2012.

As outlined in the initial announcement on the Star Wars 3D releases, the plan is to re-release each Star Wars film newly converted to 3D every year, finishing in 2017. Both announcements from Lucasfilm have been met with mixed reactions from fans, though George Lucas has been publicly supportive of 3D technology in cinema along with James Cameron in the years leading up to his Avatar release.
