20th Century Fox has announced a Memorial Day 2014 release for their upcoming
Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel, now officially known as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Released last year, Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a box office smash,
grossing over $480 million worldwide.

Rupert Wyatt, who directed the original, will return to direct with Scott Z.
Burns, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa providing the screenplay.
Returning producers include Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

The May 23rd release falls one week after Marvel Studios' still unrevealed feature
and one week before Disney•Pixar's The Good Dinosaur.

Best, title, ever.

I'd like a movie to come out with a title like this.

Thubdercats Cancled? It appears so as Thundercats was not listed as a returning show on Cartoon Network's press release on next year's schedule.

I found the show to be kind of a downer. I stopped watching it after the first three episodes.

The Robocop remake is getting under way! The first movie was really good (best not to mention the sequels). But they're doing the great satirical OCP/Omnicorp advertising from the first movie for the new one, so that makes me hopeful. The original was a commentary on the '80s, so I could see them having plenty of fodder to work with in this day and age.

Plus Gary Oldman!

"Dark Knight Rises" star Gary Oldman has hopped aboard another potential blockbuster.

The Oscar-nominated actor has signed on for a starring role in "Robocop," MGM's upcoming remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1987 action film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The character is that of a scientist who creates the title character, only to suffer a conflict of morality when the cyborg/former police officer (played by Joel Kinnaman of "The Killing") becomes aware of his past as a human - a development not appreciated by the corporation which bankrolled the project.

The Jose Padilha-directed film is expected to begin shooting in Toronto later this year, with a Summer 2013 release being eyed by the studio.

In addition to "The Dark Knight Rises," Oldman can be seen in this summer's "Lawless" directed by John Hillcoat and starring Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf (read Drew McWeeny's review from Cannes). He also recently signed on to star opposite "The Hunger Games"' Liam Hemsworth and Harrison Ford in the upcoming Robert Luketic thriller "Paranoia."


Samuel L. Jackson is onboard! And Hugh Laurie plays the villain!

Jose Padilha is directing the film, which sees Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title hero, a cop named Alex Murphy who is brought back from the brink of death and turned into a cyborg police officer.

STORY: 'House' Star Hugh Laurie and Creator David Shore on Its 8-Season Run: 'Feel Sorry For the Two of Us'

Gary Oldman already has been cast as his scientist-creator and Samuel L. Jackson is playing a media mogul.

Laurie will play the evil and ultra-rich CEO of Omnicorp, the company that makes Robocop.

The actor, repped by WME and Hamilton Hodell in the U.K., starred as the abrasively eccentric and brilliant title character of House M.D. for eight seasons, gaining five Emmy nominations in the process. He most recently appeared on the big screen inThe Oranges, anchoring the ensemble indie drama.

But due to budget constraints, most of the movie will take place on Earth.

Well that is interesting. Let's hope it is better than the original one.
