Following yesterday’s awesome casting notice that the big budget “Ghostbusters” reboot (can we please stop giving it a “Female” or “Lady” prefix? These are your Ghostbusters, period) had cast Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, a release date for the Paul Feig-helmed comedic horror film has also been established. Next summer, get ready, because bustin’ makes me feel good.

According to Feig’s Twitter page, the new film will debut on July 22nd, 2016. Considering how long a third film in the franchise had been in development, this feels like it’s coming out tomorrow. And we are so, so excited.

Our friends over at HitFix had posted some additional details about the story and the characters, but Sony made them take it down. Still, we read the original report and while we can’t remember the specifics of who everyone will play, we can reiterate that Feig and the studio want none other than Bill Murray to play a villainous government official, in a role similar to the William Atherton part in the original film. Can you imagine how cool that would be? If they snagged Murray, it would be a huge coup, especially considering how reluctant he’s been to return to the franchise.

Either way, July 22nd, 2016 can’t come soon enough.

The HuntsmanThe sequel to “Snow White and the Huntsman” already won’t feature Kristen Stewart’s Snow White. Now, Deadline reports, most of her seven dwarves are getting axed, too. Only two dwarves will be in the “The Huntsman,” though it’s unclear exactly which two.

It is known that Nick Frost (“Cuban Fury”), Toby Jones (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) and Eddie Marsan (“Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows”) will definitely not be in the movie. Marsan has a scheduling conflict with his work on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” And Bob Hoskins died last year, so he won’t be part of the project either.

“The Huntsman” is a prequel that will show the titular character (Chris Hemsworth) and Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) crossing paths before the events of the first movie. Emily Blunt is on board to play a villain, reportedly a Snow Queen who is Ravenna’s sister.

“The Huntsman” is set to be released April 22, 2016.

The fifth installment in Tom Cruise’s uber-successful “Mission: Impossible” franchise has had its release date moved up: The flick will now premiere in July, instead of its planned holiday release.

No official reason was given by Paramount for the switch, though perhaps the studio wanted to release the sure-to-be-blockbuster flick in the summer months, when big action movies dominate the box office. It could also want “Mission” to avoid getting swallowed by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which opens on December 18, only a week ahead of “M:I 5″‘s original Christmas Day release date. (And is directed by J.J. Abrams, who’s also a producer on “M:I 5.”)

According to TheWrap, “M:I 5″ will now go up against the “Point Break” remake, Ryan Reynolds’s sci-fi flick “Self/Less,” and boxing drama “Southpaw,” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Antoine Fuqua. In exchange for swapping out “Mission,” Paramount has selected the animated film “Monster Trucks” to fill “M:I 5″‘s December 25 slot.

Cruise returns for his fifth outing in the series, re-teaming with his “Jack Reacher” director Christopher McQuarrie on the project. “Mission: Impossible 5″ will now arrive in theaters on July 31.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – “American Sniper” hit the mark with moviegoers again.

The Navy SEAL drama starring Bradley Cooper topped the box office for a second weekend in a row with $64.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The total haul for the Warner Bros. film now stands at $200.1 million.

The Universal thriller “The Boy Next Door” featuring Jennifer Lopez as a teacher who engages in an affair with a younger man debuted in second place with $15 million.

The weekend’s other major new releases weren’t even in the neighborhood of “The Boy Next Door.”

The animated fantasy “Strange Magic” opened in a distant seventh place with $5.5 million, while the Johnny Depp dud “Mortdecai” flopped in ninth place with $4.1 million.

BIG EYES is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane’s art was actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. BIG EYES centers on Margaret’s awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work.
