The Purge 4 confirmed, gets July 4th 2018 release date

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

All crime will once again be legal for 12 hours, as Deadline reports that a fourth installment in the Purge franchise is happening and Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes have already added it to their release schedule.

The Purge 4 (which is currently known as the untitled Next Purge Chapter) has received a fitting July 4th, 2018 release date. For Americans, they’ll be able to celebrate Independence Day by watching people murder each other onscreen in the name of freedom.

Franchise creator James DeMonaco won’t be returning to direct, but he will, in fact, be on scripting duties again; reportedly, he’ll work with producers in finding a person to helm the next chapter.

Now that a fourth entry in the Purge series is definitely on its way, like a bevy of horror franchises from Friday the 13th to Saw, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight, »

The Purge 4 Confirmed, Set For Release In July 2018

17 February 2017 2:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What would horror films be without endless sequels? The Purge franchise is among the most profitable in the genre today, so you better believe that there’s a fourth installment. That’s right, Universal has now confirmed that The Purge 4 will hit theaters on July 4, 2018. Prepare yourself accordingly. It’s coming.

Details are slim regarding the third sequel, which follows last year’s The Purge: Election Year, but it’s been revealed that James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the first three films, is slated to pen the newest installment. However, he’ll step away from the director’s chair this time around, instead helping the producers to find a suitable replacement.

It’s unclear why exactly DeMonaco decided to step out for this one, but it’s possible that the man said his peace with the other films and he’s now ready to move on to bigger and better things. »

Purge 4 Gets a Summer 2018 Release Date

17 February 2017 2:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If a movie is successful, it will very often get a sequel, assuming there is a way to logically make that happen. In the case of horror movies, they will often get as many sequels as the studio can manage to pump out until it simply isn't profitable anymore. That being the case, Universal is moving ahead with The Purge 4 and has given the movie a release date. It looks like we'll be returning to the world of The Purge on the 4th of July next year.

Per a report from Deadline, Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes have made it official and given The Purge 4 a Wednesday, July 4, 2018, release date. That falls right in line with the strategy that was employed with the previous movie in the franchise The Purge: Election Year, which came out last year on July 1. That worked out very well for the studio, since »

Newswire: The Purge 4 is coming next summer, if we’re still around to watch it

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Another installment in The Purge film series was already inevitable, thanks to the box-office success of, and increasing critical affection for, the first three films in the series. (The A.V. Club’s Ryan Vlastelica even stumped for last summer’s The Purge: Election Year as an unlikely, but worthy, Oscar contender.) But now that we basically live inside of these movies—Exhibit A: Donald Trump lifting his re-election slogan straight from the tagline for Election Year—a fourth Purge feels more relevant than ever. We just have to avoid nuclear winter long enough to see it.

Deadline says that the details for the fourth Purge movie—which was first proposed in September but was given an official green light today—are ”under wraps.” But considering the ending of Election Year, and the interview series creator James DeMonaco gave to CinemaBlend last fall, this is presumably a prequel to the »

16 February 2017 8:05 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When it was released in 2011, Gareth Evans' Indonesian film The Raid: Redemption set the bar almost impossibly high for modern action movies. Now, WarParty and Xyz Films are looking to recapture the original movie's martial arts magic with a reimagining of The Raid that will star Frank Grillo (The Purge: Election Year, The Grey), be written and directed by Joe Carnahan (The Grey), and be executive produced by Evans himself.

‘The Raid’: Joe Carnahan and Frank Grillo Announce ‘Reimagining’ of Popular Action Film on Instagram

15 February 2017 11:12 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If, like any reasonable moviegoer, you thought that Joe Carnahan’s “The Grey” was totally rad, here’s some good news: He and Frank Grillo have just announced a remake of “The Raid.” Or, in their words, “a reimagining” of Gareth Evans’ popular action film, which has already spawned one sequel and has another in development. Carnahan announced the news in a brief Instagram post featuring him and Grillo.

“Caracas, Venezuela’s pretty dangerous,” Carnahan says at the beginning of the brief video, “and I wouldn’t go in with this many guys.” Grillo, whose action bona fides have also been displayed in the last two “Captain America” and “The Purge” movies, agrees: “You wouldn’t, right? Maybe six guys…the fighting would have to be something no one’s ever seen,” the actor says, musing on the prospect of their film. »

In Universal PicturesGet Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Get Out trailer will make you rethink meeting the parents

Author: Zehra Phelan

Your madly in love with your girlfriend, You dote on her every whim, so you agree to accompany her to her parents for the weekend to meet the people who gave this wonderful specimen life, it’s all hunky dory, we live in the 21st century right, what could possibly go wrong for this interracial young couple?

Related: Keanu movie review

Looking at the trailer quite a bit could go wrong and especially with Get Out having been produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, Bad Words) a visit to the more sinister, creepy and downright frightening town upstate could be one romantic weekend away with girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) would wholeheartedly regret. A predominately white town, run by a white cult with a strange control of the African-American’s of the town… Could Chris be next on their list? »

Ellen Ripley, Alien, and the rise of the modern Ripleys

Jennifer Leigh Williamson Feb 16, 2017

How Star Wars, Rogue One, Stranger Things and more are marking the rise of a new wave of Ripleys...

“Is that the only flamethrower?”

Most of us have long heard the fun fact that the role of Ellen Ripley in Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterpiece Alien was originally written for a man. Like Eric Stoltz filming for four weeks as Marty in Back To The Future, it's one of those fun Hollywood tidbits that seems ridiculous now as Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley has become one of the greatest heroes in movie history.

Going on to star in four (rumoured to soon be five) Alien movies, Weaver has been nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for her portrayal of this iconic character and its easy to see why. In a world of damsels, love interests and totty, Ripley is a woman: a well rounded, intelligent, confident, »

‘Rings’ Review: A Dull Sequel Nobody Needed, But There’s a Lesson to Its Failure

3 February 2017 8:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It takes seven days for the videotape in the “Ring” horror franchise to kill its victims, but only 102 minutes for “Rings” to bleed the premise dry. Twelve years after the last underwhelming entry in the series, “The Ring Two,” this half-hearted attempt to resurrect the J-horror import for another era instead proves its irrelevance.

The original movies generated an eerie suspense around grainy VHS footage and the horrors that lurk within its confines coming to life. This latest entry, featuring all new characters, finds the ghostly Samara working her way into the digital realm, hacking her way through MP4 files to assail a whole new generation of viewers — not only the characters, but younger audiences who may have no other reference point for this franchise outside of this dull retreat.

They would be better off watching “It Follows” instead — or, for that matter, the recently released J-horror crossover “The Ring vs. »

Sluggish China Box Office Brings Down 2016’s Global Totals

25 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Publicly, studio executives tend to be a rosy bunch, predicting that each year’s crop of movies will be better than that which preceded it. But behind closed doors, few in the business were expecting much from 2016.

When the final numbers are tallied, the global box office will probably fall short of last year’s record-breaking $38.9 billion. Most observers expect ticket sales to fall roughly 2% to just over $38 billion. That decline is reason for some alarm, particularly as the shortfall is largely attributable to a slowdown in China. After years of explosive growth, in which returns were expanding at a 40% clip annually, revenue in China was essentially flat in 2016 — a disappointment for the world’s second-largest film market, which had been expected to surpass the U.S. in terms of revenue in a matter of months.

“As China goes, so goes the international marketplace,” notes Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. »

With ‘Split,’ Horror and M. Night Shyamalan Remain Box Office Draws

22 January 2017 1:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The North American box office received a major boost this weekend from a pair of reliable sources: the horror genre and M. Night Shyamalan with “Split,” his 12th film.

Overall moviegoing jumped 29 percent to $148 million this weekend, led by a surprisingly strong $40.2 million debut for “Split.” Universal’s forecasts before the weekend had been in the $20 million range for “Split.”

Year-to-date business, which had been lagging by 8.8 percent before the weekend, has reached $748 million and is now only 4 percent behind the same point last year when “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was driving business.

“This really kicks off 2017 in earnest, which I didn’t think would happen until ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ on Feb. 10,” noted Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore. “There were a lot of distractions such as Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday and the women’s marches on Saturday, so the number for ‘Split’ is very impressive. »
