Lionsgate and Sony Pictures announced two big releases for the next two years today, including Roland Emmerich’s Moonfall and J.C. Chandor’s Kraven the Hunter.
The sci-fi epic Moonfall will be released by Lionsgate on February 4, 2022. Directed by Emmerich, the film was written by Emmerich & Harald Kloser & Spenser Cohen.
In Moonfall, a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it.
With mere weeks before impact and the world on the brink of annihilation, NASA executive and former astronaut Jo Fowler (Academy Award winner Halle Berry) is convinced she has the key to saving us all – but only one astronaut from her past, Brian Harper (Patrick Wilson, Midway) and a conspiracy theorist K.C. Houseman (John Bradley, Game of Thrones) believe her.
These unlikely heroes will mount an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love, only to find out that our Moon is not what we think it is.
From Sony’s Columbia Pictures, Kraven the Hunter will open in theaters and IMAX on January 13, 2023. Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been cast in the title role.
To be directed by J.C. Chandor, the film is a new entry in Sony Pictures’ Universe of Marvel characters.
Kraven is one of Marvel’s most iconic and notorious antiheros, who has encountered Venom and Black Panther, among many others, as well as being one of Spider-Man‘s best known and most formidable enemies.
Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producing, with the screenplay written by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Richard Wenk.
This past weekend, the sequel opened in the UK and took the box office crown as theaters reopened in the market on May 17. The film grossed an impressive $6.5 million, a strong number given that 10% of the market remains closed and despite formidable competition from 20 new films.
In Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway, the lovable rogue is back. Bea, Thomas, and the rabbits have created a makeshift family, but despite his best efforts, Peter can’t seem to shake his mischievous reputation.
Adventuring out of the garden, Peter finds himself in a world where his mischief is appreciated, but when his family risks everything to come looking for him, Peter must figure out what kind of bunny he wants to be.
The film was direct by Will Gluck from a script by Gluck & Patrick Burleigh and based on the characters and tales of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. The film stars Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, David Oyelowo, Elizabeth Debicki, with Margot Robbie and James Corden as Peter Rabbit.
The sequel was produced by Will Gluck, Zareh Nalbandian, Catherine Bishop and Jodi Hildebrand. The executive producers are Doug Belgrad, Jonathan Hludzinski, Jason Lust, Emma Topping and Thomas Merrington.
