Less than a week after the announcement that JJ Abrams would be stepping in to direct Star Wars Episode 9, a group of Star Wars fans have started a Change.org petition to have him removed from his newly-appointed position as director.

Blumhouse Productions announced Friday that Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to appear in the new Halloween reboot/sequel as her original character Laurie Strode, with the production house also confirming a release date of October 19, 2018; forty years after the premiere of the original film. John Carpenter returns as Executive Producer and will also score the film, with Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green behind the camera; with a script by Gordon Green and Eastbound & Down star Danny McBride.

BOX OFFICE REPORT

BUY OR SELL

Sony Pictures has debuted a brand-new TV spot for Flatliners, and it features the return of Kiefer Sutherland’s Nelson Wright from the original 1990 movie. In Flatliners, five medical students hope to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond by stopping their hearts, each triggering a near-death experience.

A new trailer has been released for the Jackie Chan starrer The Foreigner. Directed by Casino Royale’s Martin Campbell, the film sees the 63 year old Chan playing Quan, a humble London businessman whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when his teenage daughter dies in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. The film also stars Pierce Brosnan and opens in theatres on October 13th.
