The seventh installment to the "Fast and Furious" franchise is set to be released on April 3, 2015 in the U.S.
This title will be the first film to take place after the events of "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift." The three previous installments took place in between "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "Tokyo Drift." The title will also mark the final appearance of the late Paul Walker who died on Nov. 30, 2013 while the film was still in production.
In response to his untimely death, the producers have decided that he will be retired off from the film instead of being killed off in a car crash, which is how he died in real life. The scenes will be played out with doubles that have similar body types to Walker with his face placed in via CGI. Earlier this year, it was announced that Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody will be used as stand-ins for the film. more >>
The third title in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise still has no confirmed release date yet but it is currently slated for a 2016 release.
It is still unclear if the production crew has already started filming yet but it is likely they will be in 2015. Zoe Saldana, who plays Uhura in the film, is currently busy preparing for shooting the Avatar sequel, so it is quite possible that filming the third "Star Trek" title will happen in 2015.
Unlike the first two titles in the franchise, J.J. Abrams won't be directing the third title as he is currently busy putting "Star Wars: Episode VII" together for a December 2015 deadline. It is still unconfirmed as to who will be directing the third title but it will likely to be Joe Cornish, who directed Attack the Block and Adventures of Tintin both in 2011. more >>
The next "Terminator" movie is set to be released on July 1, 2015 and will be called "Terminator: Genisys." The film is not a sequel of any kind but more of a partial reboot to the Terminator franchise.
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns in "Terminator: Genisys" as the T-800 once more, with Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clark as John Connor, and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese. The film will be the fifth film in the series and was initially simply called "Terminator." It was only recently that Genisys was added to the film's title.
The differently spelled Genisys subtitle is speculated to be the name of a new high-tech manufacturing corporation, much like the Cyberdyne Systems in the previous films. Since Paramount Pictures still hasn't released any synopsis of sorts, it would seem plausible that this Genisys company could be the one to cause Judgement Day in the film. more >>
Earlier this summer, Paul W.S. Anderson, the writer and director of the hit video game-inspired movie series "Resident Evil," announced that the sixth installment wouldn't be able to make it for September 2014 release date because he wasn't able to finish the second draft of the script. However, Milla Jobvovich herself said that filming would also have to be delayed because of her pregnancy.
On her Facebook wall, the actress told fans why they would have to wait for a new "Resident Evil" a bit longer.
"Happy Monday everyone! This was originally going to be a post to tell you how excited I am about flying to Cape Town to begin working on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. But… My husband Paul and I just discovered that we are expecting another baby!!! So after a lot of discussion, we thought it would be in everyone's best interest to wait till the baby is born before we set out to try and tackle an RE movie," she wrote. more >>
The highest-grossing film ever, "Avatar," is going to get a sequel in a few years as filming will begin early 2015. No one knows when the actual film is coming out but there are talks that the title will get three sequels in the coming years.
Zoe Saldana, the actress who plays as Neytiri in the film, is set to be cast in those sequels alongside two other blockbuster film sequels. The actress has told Vulture that her agents are currently prepping her first for the filming of the "Avatar" sequel. Her schedule isn't totally of her choosing, however, as her agents are the ones taking care of it.
"It's the producers for every movie and my agents who have to plan it," Saldana says to Vulture. "I do know that Avatar is coming first. It's been the one in line for a while now, and we're just waiting for Jim to give us the green light so it can happen early next year. My backpack is ready!" more >>
Barely six months ago, it was revealed that a sequel for Tim Burton's horror-comedy classic "Bettlejuice" might come into a reality as the director has recently entered in preliminary talks with a screenwriter and producer Seth Graham-Smith, who was tasked to work on the sequel script.

The Wrap later shared the news that part of Burton's plan for the movie would be for Michael Keaton to reprise his role as the "obnoxious, devious ghost" named BettleJuice. more >>
