"Last night, Lionsgate set two release dates for movies from Summit Entertainment, with the Kevin Costner crime-thriller Criminal coming out on August 21, 2015 and the newly-named Jason Statham action sequel Mechanic: Resurrection set for January 22, 2016.
The sequel to The Mechanic, which was released by CBS Films in 2011, "Resurrection" brings back Statham as his hitman character Arthur Bishop. It began filming earlier this week in Bangkok, Thailand with German director Dennis Gansel (We Are the Night) at the helm with Statham joined by Tommy Lee Jones, Jessica Alba and Michelle Yeoh. Right now, it's the only movie set for that late January weekend but that's likely to change."
"Sylvester Stallone, Danny DeVito and Ian McKellen will lend their distinctive voices to the animated feature “Animal Crackers,” it was announced Thursday by Blue Dream Studios. The voice cast also includes Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, Harvey Fierstein, James Arnold Taylor, Tara Strong and Lydia Taylor.
Scott Christian Sava and Tony Bancroft will co-direct from a script Sava wrote with Dean Lorey.
“Animal Crackers” follows a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers, which magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten — including monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears."
