Jordan Peele-Produced ‘Candyman’ Heads To Fall
More betting by the major studios that moviegoing occurs later this season in the coronavirus climate, than earlier this summer as Universal/MGM’s Candyman reboot moves from June 12 to Sept. 25.

In the wake of Paramount, Warner Bros. and Sony shifting their movies out of the earlier part of summer as questions hang over when exhibition will re-open and Covid-19 calms, Universal, remained left standing with one of the earlier franchise titles in the summer, after Wonder Woman 1984 headed to Aug. 14.

The Real Reason Quentin Tarantino Bailed on Making Marvel's Luke Cage Movie

The Real Reason Quentin Tarantino Bailed on Making Marvel's Luke Cage Movie
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is by one of the most successful movie franchises in history, though it does have its detractors, with some finding the movies the make up the series a little too similar to each other. Well, things could have been vastly different, as once upon a time, critically acclaimed auteur Quentin Tarantino had toyed with bringing Marvel superhero Luke Cage to the big screen himself.

"There was a time before all this Marvel shit was coming out. It was after Reservoir Dogs, it was before Pulp Fiction, and I had thought about doing Luke Cage. Growing up I was a big comic book collector, and my two favorite [comic books] were Luke Cage: Hero for Hire, later Luke Cage: Power Man, and Shang-Chi: Master of Kung Fu. I also liked Werewolf by Night, that was a great one, and Tomb of Dracula was great, but my absolute hero was Luke Cage.

Is a ‘Bad Boys 4’ Ever Going to Happen?

Is a ‘Bad Boys 4’ Ever Going to Happen?
This year is a bad time that keeps getting worse every day, and there’s certainly no upside to any of this. But at least “Bad Boys for Life” managed to slip into theaters before the movie business went on pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

When it hit theaters, “Bad Boys for Life” broke the box office record for Thursday night previews in January, and managed to do the franchise’s biggest opening. And now, with the novel coronavirus sweeping the world, it got a bit of an early release this week on digital platforms, before it lands on physical media near the end of April. Before theaters shut down due to the virus, “Bad Boys for Life” was the biggest box office hit of 2020.

The film’s directors, Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi, told TheWrap that they’ve talked about doing a fourth film: “At this point

Film News Roundup: ViacomCBS Closes $375 Million Deal for 49% of Miramax
In today’s film news roundup, Miramax’s owners have sold 49% to ViacomCBS, Imax hires a new investor relations officer and Magnolia is giving early on demand releases to a trio of titles.

Deal Closes

‘Shooting Heroin’: Film Review

‘Shooting Heroin’: Film Review
In the next few years, I predict someone is going to make a staggering drama about the opioid crisis — a filmmaker like, say, Debra Granik, or maybe Kent Jones or Kathryn Bigelow or Steven Soderbergh. It will, of course, be a film about something much larger than drug addiction, one that confronts the disappearance of jobs, the cycles of hopelessness and rage, the gambits of pharmaceutical companies, and the loss of faith in the system (and the future) that has hollowed out the heartland. That’s a story that needs telling, and if it touches on the reasons so many Middle Americans have embraced a fascist used-car salesman as their political savior, then all the better.

Shooting Heroin,” an indie drama written and directed by Spencer T Folmar with some feeling and skill, is like a rough compelling sketch for that movie. It’s set in the Pennsylvania backwater of Whispering Pines,

Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Artemis Fowl’ to Skip Theaters and Debut on Disney+

Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Artemis Fowl’ to Skip Theaters and Debut on Disney+
Lost in the craziness of this morning's massive Disney news -- though not on my Twitter feed -- was the fact that Kenneth Branagh's Artemis Fowl will skip theaters and head straight to Disney+. That's a big deal for a $125 million movie, though it makes sense for multiple reasons. For starters, there has always been a lack of genuine excitement for Artemis Fowl compared to Disney's other marquee movies. That's not to say that Eoin Colfer's book series doesn't have its fans, because it does. This is a popular kiddie lit character along the …

“We had 20 episodes to shoot,” the star explained. “We were in the middle of episode 19 and then this happened. So, we just have about a week and a half to go, about 10 more days and we’ll be finished.”

After Henson’s interview with Variety, Fox announced that “Empire’s” final season would be cut short by two episodes and the series finale will air on April 21. Sources told Variety that footage from episode 19 will be edited into the finale episode. News of the sixth season being cut short was revealed during
