A&E's "Coma" mini series release date changed to Fall 2012

The mini series Coma that was scheduled to be released on the A&E network on May 28th, seems to have been moved to a Fall release reports.

It was reported back in December that the 4 hour mini series would premiere on Memorial Day 2012. It is unknown the reason for the move to a Fall broadcast.

No promotional materials for the show have been released yet, but since filming has been completed for some time now, within the coming months we should see production stills and previews for the show.

An exact release date is still unknown, but I will keep everyone updated with any news of the air date for the show.

GI Joe Retaliation release date moved to March 29th, 2013

The movie's release date has changed from June 29th, 2012 to March 29th, 2013 in order to convert the film into 3D. reports:

Part of this has to do with helping the film perform better internationally, but some of it may also have to do with the fact that G.I. Joe 2 would have had to go up against The Amazing Spider-Man, both of which would've had to share a very similar audience.

I'm very sad to hear that we will have to wait an entire year for GI Joe Retaliation. For now, we can just enjoy the trailers, posters, and movie stills as we wait for the film's release next March.

Joe is filming a new movie called "Dear Sidewalk"

Dear Sidewalk is a romantic comedy indie film that is currently filming in Austin. Here is the synopsis of the film from the Dear Sidewalk Facebook page:

DEAR SIDEWALK is the story of Gardner, a 24-year old mail carrier, who fantasizes about life beyond the sidewalks beneath his feet. His dreams of finding the perfect woman, achieving the perfect life, and becoming the hero of his own epic tale are both touching and hilarious. But overwhelmed by possibility and the fear of abandonment, he adheres to the comfort of his routine. He rigidly cultivates his philatelic obsessions in order to maintain a very small but safe, controlled world. Gardner’s co-workers and friends offer their own unique versions of advice and support along the way. His adoptive brother, Calvin, believes the secret to Gardner’s happiness is finding the right woman, but Calvin lacks the skill and Gardner the desire to make this a reality. This changes when he meets Paige, a provocative newly relocated divorce√© on his route. His quarter-life crisis collides with her mid-life crisis and they form an intimate relationship based on this synchronicity. Together, they help each other confront their fears and try to find the lives they want to lead.

It is unknown the role Joe is playing, but I'm guessing he is the lead role, Gardner.

First Kiss was a fan favorite at the Catalina Film Festival!

This past weekend, First Kiss played at the Catalina Film Festival. It was named a fan favorite by!

Beyond documentaries, the festival also serves as a hub for independent filmmakers and screenwriters. Highlighting both shorts and full-length features, the festival saw the world premiere of the comedic short First Kiss, a fan favorite throughout the weekend. Although only four minutes long the film tells the trials and tribulations of a couple that just can’t seem to get to the first kiss, the results are unexpected and hilarious.

The festival response for First Kiss has been very positive! I can't wait to finally see this short film. It should be released online soon.

You can also check out an interview with First Kiss director Charles Hood on the red carpet of the Catalina Film Festival here!
