Disney updates their 2014 release schedule on 1952, Pirates 5, Captain America 2, Maleficent and Guardians of the Galaxy!
Hey folks, Harry here... Disney just dropped a big press release about their release schedule from 2014 forward and its ambitious and missing any mention of STAR WARS at this time... but I expect updates on all of that soon. DISNEY is quickly becoming very magical. I just hope the spell never lifts. Here's what they have:
THE MUPPETS 2 is now dated on 3/21/14.
- MUPPETS 2 is produced by Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman and directed by James Bobin. The screenplay is by Bobin and Nick Stoller, who will also serve as executive producer. The cast includes Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell – and of course, the whole Muppets gang.
Ricky Gervais and the MUPPETS eh? Hmmmm... I'll watch that!
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER (Marvel) will be available in 3D.
- Releases on 4/4/14.
- CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will pick up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. The film stars Chris Evans in the title role and will be directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.
Dying for this one! WINTER SOLDIER is a helluva story.
MALEFICENT is now dated on 7/2/14 (from 3/14/14).
- MALEFICENT, the untold story of Disney’s most beloved villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty,” reveals the events that hardened Maleficent’s heart and drove her to curse the baby, Aurora.
- MALEFICENT will be released in 3D and is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, from a screenplay written by Linda Woolverton. The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
MALEFICENT is my fave villain in the Disney Menagerie and I'm just dying to find out more on the project.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (Marvel) will be available in 3D.
- Releases on 8/1/14.
- GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, based on the Marvel comic books of the same name, features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. James Gunn will direct.
Lots of rumors on casting so far, but nothing locked in. I'm beyond excited for this. James Gunn is gonna knock this out of the galaxy.
1952 is now dated on 12/19/14 in 3D.
- 1952 will be produced by Damon Lindelof and directed by Brad Bird, from a script by Lindelof and Bird. George Clooney will star.
Brad Bird, Damon Lindelof, George Clooney... Science Fiction. Basically what we know and that's enough for me. Thus far, for me, all 3 can do no wrong at this point. Let's hope we feel that way on 12/20/14.
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 is now dated on 7/10/15.
- PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and will star Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. Jeff Nathanson is writing the screenplay.
- The “Pirates of the Caribbean” films have earned over $3.7 billion at the worldwide box office. Most recently, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” earned over $1.043 billion.
Here - we'll see. Jeff Nathanson has the capacity to suck and soar at the same time. Let's hope this soars. I did not like the 4th installment, it was just such a dialed back affair - with a noted lack of imagination and vision. If this series is to continue - they must make it magical in an audacious manner that makes us dream of the pirate life. Jack Sparrow has become our Sinbad for the modern generation. Frankly, none of the films approach the awesome of SINBAD, so show your kids the Harryhausen films while they wait!
