2015 was looking like the craziest year in cinema history (at least in terms of blockbusters) with 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and more battling it out in the summer and winter months. 'Batman Vs. Superman' was one of the those big titles, but Warner Brothers and DC seemingly don't want to compete with that crowd and have moved the picture to May 6, 2016
With so much attention focused on 2015, and the explosion of tentpole releases that are coming, it's worth noting that the biggest sequel of them all isn't due until the year after. James Cameron is gearing up to make some of the biggest films of all time as he's working on three sequels to 'Avatar,' with the first due in 2016, and today some expected casting for the series has been confirmed: Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana will return to Pandora.
Though it's been rumored for a while, Sony has made steps to get a 'Bad Boys 3' off the ground and is looking to hire a writer to pen a third entry in the franchise. That doesn't mean that Will Smith, Michael Bay or Martin Lawrence will return, but it's a start.
When George Lucas sold his 'Star Wars' empire to Disney, there was a question of who then would control Indiana Jones, as the films were made by Lucasfilm but distributed by Paramount. Today it was ironed out that Disney now controls the rights to all future Indiana Jones adventures.
Ben Stiller's 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' has already screened for numerous critics, which shows that Fox and Stiller think (or thought) they have an Oscar picture on their hands. Which may be why they've released multiple trailers to get audiences familiar with Stiller's Mitty and his flights of fancy.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been rumoring the return of original cast members since the project was announced, but as the film is taking a new direction now that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have taken over scripting duties, it's possible that the original cast may no longer have a role in the production. Former Jedi Samuel L. Jackson has spoken to Mark Hamill about returning as Luke Skywalker, and revealed that Hamill hasn't spoken to Abrams.
Considering that 2015 is looking like one of the biggest movie years in the history of cinema, it's surprising that studios aren't as afraid of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' as they were of 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.' Currently 'Episode 7' will open December 18, the same day as 'Warcraft,' and now 'Mission: Impossible 5' has announced that they'll be hitting theaters a week later on Christmas Day.
Though the film struggled to get the cast signed on, it looks like the 'Entourage' movie is heading forward with everyone in tow, and now the film is looking to cast its leading lady. Word is that model/actress Kate Upton is up for the part.
The primary cast of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy have all but guaranteed they'll be showing up in the J.J. Abrams-directed 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' though there was a question if Harrison Ford would return. The latest report is that not only will Ford be back, he may be in for all three films in the new trilogy. And supposedly part of the deal to get Han Solo to return involves work starting on 'Indiana Jones 5.'
