R.I.P.D. Goes 3D, 2 Guns and Kick-Ass Move Release Dates

Universal Pictures has made some changes to its 2013 calendar, particularly where three different comic book adaptations are concerned. Robert Schwentke's R.I.P.D. will retain its July 19 release date, but will now be released in 3D. Baltasar Kormakur's 2 Guns will move two weeks earlier, from August 16 to August 2. Jeff Wadlow's Kick-Ass 2, finally, will move from June 28 to August 16.

R.I.P.D. stars Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds. The supernatural action-adventure also features Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker and Stephanie Szostak and is based on the Dark Horse comic. R.I.P.D. is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Mike Richardson and Michael Fottrell.

2 Guns stars Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, James Marsden, Fred Ward and Edward James Olmos. It is is produced by Marc Platt, Randall Emmett, George Furla, Adam Siegel, Jeffrey Stott, Ross Richie, Andrew Cosby and Norton Herrick and is based on the BOOM! Studios title. The new date puts it head to head with two other comic book-to-screen projects, 300: Rise of an Empire and RED 2 as well at the limited release of James Ponsoldt's indie drama The Spectacular Now.

Kick-Ass 2, finally, has Aaron Johnson, ChloĆ« Grace Moretz and Christopher Mintz-Plasse reprising their roles from 2010’s Kick-Ass. Based on the comic by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., the sequel co-stars Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo and Donald Faison. It is produced by Matthew Vaughn, Tarquin Pack, Adam Bohling, David Reid and Brad Pitt.

Kick-Ass 2's new release has it opening opposite Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and The To-Do List.

The Hobbit: There and Back Again Moves to December 2014

Originally planned for release on July 18, 2014, New Line Cinema and MGM have moved the theatrical release of The Hobbit: There and Back Again to December 17, 2014.

Directed by Peter Jackson, the film is the third and final chapter of his J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation, the first part of which, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, hit theaters late last year. The second, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, is scheduled to arrive on December 13th of this year.

The new date allows for the trilogy to maintain its consistent December releases and puts it away from Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past in July. December 17 has The Hobbit: There and Back Again arriving just two days before Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me spinoff, Minions and Brad Bird's mysterious Tomorrowland.

Update will be updating there theme soon. Keep you up to date!

Mzansi Magic Racist

Black Productions Only 

South Africa suppose to be a rainbow nation, with all benefiting from the same opportunity. But it seems that the Indian and colored nation in south africa will suffer the most. A channel known as Mzansi Magic on a satellite network known as DSTV as told a fellow film maker the following:

"Got an official word from Mzansi Magic, that our type of films, meaning local Indian/Colored films are not their type of films that they want to show on their channel."

So now regarding series and films, it seems that we are no longer needed on television networks like Mzansi. It seems that we are no longer welcomed in South Africa.
