Want to see The Hangover with old people? As if you have any say in the matter…Hollywood went ahead and made the movie with National Treasure director Jon Turtletaub. He enlisted a pretty stellar ensemble for the effort as Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Douglas joined in along with Kevin Kline. Release is set for November 1. Continue Reading
Remember Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore’s reunion film that broke earlier this spring? Well, today there is an update on the project as a release date has been set by Warner Bros. The Frank Coraci-directed comedy starring the two and, as most-recently announced, Joel McHale will be hitting theaters on Memorial Day Weekend of next year, May 23 to be exact. The project will leave an alternative to Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes on a weekend that is expected to now be big enough to support two blockbusters.
A bigger story though might be regarding a film that most have never heard of as the studio is also set to distribute Transcendence from Dark Knight cinematographer Wally Pfister. The sci-fi project stars Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman and was originally set for an April 25 bow–giving it only one week to play with before Amazing Spider-Man 2 comes out. Now, it is will roll out a week earlier on April 18, two weeks after Disney’s release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It has been talked about for a while now, but it would appear the summer box office season starts well before May next year as even March has some stacked releases.
Morgan Freeman was on The Tonight Show last night. The legendary actor is in two new films this spring including this week’s Olympus Has Fallen and next month’s Oblivion which is a bit higher profile. Nonetheless, the actor is out promoting his Gerard Butler-starrer from Training Day director Antoine Fuqua. Reviews are not out for this release just yet, but it is expected the film will net $20 million in its opening weekend. Continue Reading
In case you were not already pumped about the next big Tom Cruise actioner, there is a brand new poster out for Universal’s Oblivion that features both the leading man and supporting star Morgan Freeman. This really is one of the cooler posters we have seen in a while which hints at what we might expect from this sci-fi epic from the director of Tron: Legacy, Joseph Kosinski. Today’s art comes courtesy of EW. Continue Reading
Tom Cruise is perhaps just as busy as the Channing Tatums of the world nowadays following the huge success of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but nothing as of yet has sparked audience interest like his latest run as Ethan Hunt. That all might change when Joseph Kosinski’s Tron follow-up Oblivion hits theaters in April because we are completely blown away by what has been packaged together on a sub-$200 million budget for a month typically known for its ‘calm before the summer storm.’
The first trailer has hit the web of the sci-fi flick that has a post-apocalyptic Earth being taken care of by a robot technician who is one of the last remaining humans on the planet. The Tom Cruise-played Jack Harper eventually winds up being court-martialed (probably for trumped up reasons) and sentenced to a distant planet where he is to destroy what is last of an alien race. While there, he comes upon an unexpected traveler that causes him to question everything. Continue Reading
Morgan Freeman got a lot of love this morning when he took to The Today Show’s outdoor set in order to promote The Dark Knight Rises. The actor only got about two minutes to sell his movie, so he dished on ‘the bat’ before talking about Nelsen Mandella whom he played in the 2009 film Invictus. During the interview, Freeman also confirms that this is the end of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but also said that he gets the sense Warner Bros. could be setting up a Robin movie. Continue Reading
There is yet another Dark Knight Rises clip circulating the net today. This one comes courtesy of Morgan Freeman’s appearance on The Tonight Show although it did not appear the broadcaster put that section of the interview online.

Yesterday featured the first Dark Knight Rises promotional appearance of the summer for Morgan Freeman. The actor took to The Tonight Show where he reminisced about his film catalogue and hesitantly stated that his least favorite film was Bonfire of the Vanities. No worries. I am sure Tom Hanks and Bruce Willis feel the same way. Okay, maybe not Bruce Willis. Continue Reading

Deadlinehas the story today that Morgan Freeman will be joining Oblivion–a sci-fi film in which Tom Cruise plays the last man on earth that stays behind to ‘repair ships that hunt down and blast a virulent alien species.’ It sounds like a real blockbuster feature for the two, and we know the Cruise plus aliens equals gold because until Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol hit theaters in December, War of the Worlds was the actor’s top film of all time at the box office.
There is no word just yet on Freeman’s role in this feature; however, the script is in rewrites at the current moment, so shooting should begin shortly at which point that information should be released.
Morgan Freeman is causing quite the stir as he went on Pier Morgan this past week to promote his new film Dolphin Tale and ended up accusing Tea Partiers of racism. His beef?
