‘Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway’ Release Date Leaps Forward to Easter 2021

There may be less of a spring in Peter Rabbit’s step when the James Corden-voiced rabbit bounds back into theaters with Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway. Sony’s sequel to the live-action/CGI hybrid comedy has been hit by delay after delay amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and has received its latest new release date — which will be a full year after it was initially set to hit theaters.

Back in the spring of 2019, it was said that Doug Liman‘s new sci-fi film Chaos Walking was “unreleasable,” and Lionsgate was going to spend millions of dollars on reshoots in an attempt to fix it. Well, we can finally get a taste of those results as the first Chaos Walking trailer has arrived, revealing that Tom Holland lives on a planet where all women have disappeared and the inner-monologues of men are unwillingly audible for anyone to hear. That’s made all the more complicated when Daisy R...

For some, the prospect of former Pixar director Brenda Chapman (“Brave”) making her live-action debut will make “Come Away” seem exciting.

‘The Water Man’ Review: David Oyelowo Makes His Directorial Debut With a Wholesome Adventure [TIFF 2020]

“Anything that basically is overtly celebrating darkness and to be perfectly honest, sanctioning it,” David Oyelowo told NPR in 2015, “that’s something I can’t personally do […] I know that films affect and shape culture, and I want to put stuff in the world that I feel is edifying as opposed to stuff that is detrimental.” As Oyelowo steps behind the camera for his feature directorial debut, it’s helpful to keep the star’s words in mind.
