New Release Dates for 3D Films ‘Contagion’ and ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth 2’

Fraser and Hutcherson return for Journey Sequel Warner Bros. has announced some of their release plans for the upcoming future, taking us into 2011. The biggest news is that Steven Soderbergh's latest film Contagion will be release on October 21st, 2011. And that it will be shot in 3D. The film stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Gwyneth Paltrow and revolves around a deadly disease that threatens to end life on earth as we know it.

On September 23rd, 2011, Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson will be back for an Untitled Journey to the Center of the Earth Sequel, which will also be shot in 3D, the same as its predecessor. This time out, Professor Anderson and his nephew will visit the mysterious island that served as inspiration for both Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island and Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels.

Warner Bros. also announced a release date for Final Destination 5, which will hit next summer on August 26th, 2011. There is no word on whether this series will continue to utilize 3D, and no cast or crew information has been released at this time. Gary Marshall's Valentine's Day follow-up New Year's Eve will arrive on December 9th, 2011 in order to take full advantage of the film's holiday theme.

Other films with just announced release dates include Catherine Hardwicke's Amanda Seyfried thriller The Girl with the Red Riding Hood, which opens on April 22nd, 2011. The horror film The Apparition, which comes to us September 9th of 2011. And the comedy Late Bloomer, about an adult man who must suffer through all the side effects of puberty in three weeks, which will hit theaters on August 12th, 2011.

            I enjoyed Journey to the Center of the Earth, it was fun and enjoyable.

            Final Destination 5, what a joke the first film was laughable good

            Some of the other films look questionable, though I do like Matt Damon in certain films

                  "Fun" is the key word. The second one needs to be more about exploring and finding new things in this weird underground world, now that the set-up is done. I'm up for it.

                    Journey to the Center of the Earth was just a fun/enjoyable movie. But a sequel? Didn't see that coming.

                      Journey to the Center of the Earth was basically the same movie as Land of the Lost, but Journey was much better. I'd see a second one. Just tell Fraser to stay away from furry creatures!

                        ... The Mummy (???)...

                        First JTTCOTe made $101 million (domestic gross) and cost $60, so one could say it was not that bad profit (but movie was "not great).
