Michael Bay's Pandemic Movie 'Songbird' Will Skip Theaters, Debut on PVOD in December

You’ll get to see the upcoming pandemic thriller Songbird a lot sooner than expected!

The movie, which was produced by Michael Bay, was the first film to shoot in Los Angeles entirely during the pandemic. It will skip a theatrical release and be released on premium video on-demand (PVOD) on December 11.

Songbird will be available for a 48-hour rental at the price of $19.99. The movie will be available on a major streaming service in 2021.

STXfilms chairman Adam Fogelson said, “The pandemic has affected every aspect of our business, from production to release, but Songbird demonstrates that a nimble studio like STX can find effective and profitable ways to make their movies work, as we have similarly with Greenland and My Spy during these challenging times. The show must go on. Songbird is a thrilling movie that will speak to audiences in this moment as it keeps them on the edge of their seats.”

KJ Apa, Sofia Carson, Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Peter Stormare, Alexandra Daddario, Paul Walter Hauser, and Demi Moore are featured in the cast. The movie was directed by Adam Mason and written by Simon Boyes.

Robert Downey Jr. Talks to Animals in 'Dolittle' Trailer - Watch!

The official trailer for Robert Downey Jr.‘s Dolittle is out now!

The 54-year-old actor plays Dr. John Dolittle in the upcoming film.

Here’s the synopsis for the vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: “After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle (Downey), famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.”

It continues, “The doctor is joined on his quest by a young, self-appointed apprentice (Harry Collett) and a raucous coterie of animal friends, including an anxious gorilla (Rami Malek), an enthusiastic but bird-brained duck (Octavia Spencer), a bickering duo of a cynical ostrich (Kumail Nanjiani) and an upbeat polar bear (John Cena) and a headstrong parrot (Emma Thompson), who serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidante.”

The film also stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, and Jim Broadbent and features additional voice performances from Marion Cotillard, Frances de la Tour, Carmen Ejogo, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Tom Holland, and Craig Robinson. (See more details on which characters they voice.)

The film is directed by Stephen Gaghan and executive produced by Robert Downey Jr..

Dolittle hits theaters on January 17, 2020. Watch the trailer now!

James Franco's Movie 'Zeroville' Is Finally Being Released - Watch the Trailer!

James Franco filmed his movie Zeroville back in 2014 and now fans will finally get to see it!

The movie is being released in theaters on September 20.

James directed the movie and stars in it alongside Megan Fox, Seth Rogen, Joey King, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Jacki Weaver.

Here is the official synopsis: Vikar is a lost soul journeying through Hollywood 1969, a land of myths, beauty and monsters. The studio system is in decay, and a new generation of brash filmmakers are on the rise. With his shaved head marked by a tattoo from his favorite film, 1951’s A Place in the Sun, Vikar is a bizarre presence even amid the dreamers and players. He finds work first building sets, then as an apprentice editor obsessed with wielding the power of moving images. As his involvement in the creative process deepens, so does his fascination with a tragic screen goddess named Soledad. Together they discover just how hard it is to live in the blurred boundary between reality and illusion.
