  1. Disney's Artemis Fowl, originally due to be released 29th May, is now going directly to Disney+: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-breaks-theatrical-window-artemis-fowl-debuting-disney-1288463 Disney have also announced an updated schedule - I think that most of the MCU releases have been shuffled backwards by one slot (so Black Widow moves into Eternals' original release date). I doubt those June-August releases will stay where they are. At the moment I think we'll be lucky if the September films don't get delayed too... https://thewaltdisneycompany.com/the-walt-disney-studios-announces-updated-release-schedule/ 2020 Soul (Disney and Pixar)—June 19, 2020 Mulan (Disney)—July 24, 2020 Empty Man (20th Century Studios)—August 7, 2020 The One and Only Ivan (Disney)—August 14, 2020 The Beatles: Get Back (Disney)—September 4, 2020 The King’s Man (20th Century Studios)—September 18, 2020 Death on the Nile (20th Century Studios)—October 9, 2020 The French Dispatch (Searchlight Pictures)—October 16, 2020 Everybody’s Talking About Jamie (20th Century Studios)—October 23, 2020 Black Widow (Marvel Studios)—November 6, 2020 Deep Water (20th Century Studios)—November 13, 2020 Raya and the Last Dragon (Walt Disney Animation Studios)—November 25, 2020 Free Guy (20th Century Studios)—December 11, 2020 West Side Story (20th Century Studios)—December 18, 2020 The Last Duel (20th Century Studios)—December 25, 2020 (limited) 2021 The Last Duel (20th Century Studios)—January 8, 2021 (Wide) The Eternals (Marvel Studios)—February 12, 2021 Ron’s Gone Wrong (20th Century Studios)—February 26, 2021 Untitled Disney Live Action—March 12, 2021 Bob’s Burgers (20th Century Studios)—April 9, 2021 Untitled 20th Century—April 23, 2021 Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Marvel Studios)—May 7, 2021 Cruella (Disney)—May 28, 2021 Untitled Pixar Animation—June 18, 2021 Jungle Cruise (Disney)—July 30, 2021 Untitled 20th Century—August 13, 2021 Untitled 20th Century—September 10, 2021 Untitled 20th Century—October 1, 2021 Hamilton (Disney)—October 15, 2021 Untitled 20th Century—October 22, 2021 Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Marvel Studios)—November 5, 2021 Untitled Disney Live Action—November 19, 2021 Untitled Disney Animation—November 24, 2021 Untitled 20th Century—December 3, 2021 AVATAR 2 (20th Century Studios)—December 17, 2021 2022 Untitled 20th Century—January 7, 2022 Nimona (20th Century Studios)—January 14, 2022 Thor: Love and Thunder (Marvel Studios)—February 18, 2022 Untitled Pixar Animation—March 11, 2022 Untitled Disney Live Action—March 25, 2022 Untitled 20th Century—April 8, 2022 Black Panther 2 (Marvel Studios)—May 6, 2022 Untitled Disney Live Action—May 27, 2022 Untitled 20th Century—June 10, 2022 Untitled Pixar Animation—June 17, 2022 Captain Marvel 2 (Marvel Studios)—July 8, 2022 Untitled Indiana Jones (Disney)—July 29, 2022 Untitled Disney Live Action—August 12, 2022 Untitled 20th Century—September 16, 2022 Untitled Marvel—October 7, 2022 Untitled 20th Century—October 21, 2022 Untitled Disney Live Action—November 4, 2022 Untitled 20th Century—November 11, 2022 Untitled Disney Animation—November 23, 2022 Untitled Star Wars (Lucasfilm)—December 16, 2022 Untitled 20th Century—December 23, 2022
  2. This is now going straight to Disney Plus - I think it's the first time a Disney film originally announced for a cinematic release has gone directly to streaming. They haven't confirmed if it'll keep the original May 29 release date. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-breaks-theatrical-window-artemis-fowl-debuting-disney-1288463
  3. I don't particularly care about car brands, so it doesn't matter to me whether they are officially Ferraris or Generic Red Sports Cars. If it's a choice between having a great racing game with made-up manufacturer names, or never getting that game released because its creators insisted that the official licence was a deal-breaker, I'd go for the former. But I admit Outrun would still lose something, knowing that the licensed brand used to be there but isn't any more. It'd be an ever-present mild irritation in the back of my mind whenever I played the game. For me, official brand licences work a bit like flavour text, because they can enhance a game despite not having any effect at all on the gameplay. Imagine if for some obscure legal reason a Halo remake couldn't use the level name "The Silent Cartographer", so instead the mission had to be called "Find the Map Room" or "Level Four". Or if Dark Souls had called one of its bosses "Lava Monster" instead of "Ceaseless Discharge". It wouldn't change the game mechanics in any way at all, but changing from an evocative name to a mundane one would lose some of the atmosphere. Of course there are examples of games benefitting from developers being forced to invent their own brand names. For example, the made-up vehicle names suit GTA's world a lot better than licensed car models would. And GoldenEye's "RC-P90" rolls off the tongue much better than the real gun name "FN-P90", doesn't it?
  4. Its release date has been pushed back from 24 June to 23 December. https://variety.com/2020/film/box-office/top-gun-maverick-delayed-coronavirus-tom-cruise-1203550174/
  5. Following on from the communal Twitter rewatch of Vincent and the Doctor a few days ago (#TheUltimateGinger) the next one is going to be The Eleventh Hour, at 7pm on Friday 3rd:
  6. Is it just an April Fools joke? Watch and find out!
  7. No - Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) was going to direct it, but then The Book of Henry got 22% on Rotten Tomatoes so he was shuffled away and replaced with Abrams (though he still got a story credit). Rian Johnson was never going to be involved with Episode IX, but he was going to write and direct a separate Star Wars trilogy. I don't think that has been officially announced as cancelled yet, but it's looking less and less likely to happen.
  8. Why did your caps lock key work when you wrote the title then get stuck when you wrote the post?
  9. That's "Martin Goodman is the father we need in these troubled times, over."
  10. Lovely bit of squirrel
  11. If anyone missed Moffat and RTD's Twitter sessions (Moffat's deleted his ), this Tumblr has archived many of their comments, with screenshots of the scenes they're referring to: https://intuitive-revelations.tumblr.com/post/613697477079613440/some-highlights-of-russell-t-daviess-twitter https://intuitive-revelations.tumblr.com/post/613245012779679744/some-highlights-of-steven-moffats-twitter Also:
  12. Little detail hidden at the end of this Variety article on how the production and pre-production of movies has been distributed... https://variety.com/2020/film/news/hollywood-productions-limbo-coronavirus-1203543478/
