Movie News: 'World War Z' Premieres in Europe, Has Trouble in China; See the Nixon White House in 'X-Men'

World War Z

World War Z: In the last few days, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have attended European premiere screenings for World War Z in London and Paris, but the film has run into a roadblock in China. Paramount already advised the producers to change the country cited as a possible source for the zombie outbreak from China to another country, yet that version has reportedly still been rejected by Chinese officials. Paramount says it is waiting for an official response before deciding what to do. [The Wrap]

X-Men: Days of Future Past: As a break from the photos of mutants and other mysterious characters that he's been tweeting, director Bryan Singer shared a picture of the Nixon White House -- that's the president sitting deep in the background, between the flags -- and captioned it: "Pivotal meeting." This leads to speculation that it might represent the difference between government support and opposition in X-Men: Days of Future Past, due out on July 18, 2014.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

The Wizard of Oz: On September 20, Dorothy might say to her little dog: "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in 2D anymore." That's when Warner Bros. plans to return the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz to theaters for a special one-week engagement, presented in IMAX and 3D. The film has been remastered with "digitally enhanced sound and images." [USA Today]

Blackfish Trailer: "A whale has eaten one of the trainers" is not the type of emergency call you want to hear, but that's just one of the very surprising moments in the trailer for Blackfish, a documentary that will be splashing into theaters on July 19. The movie places the actions of one notorious orca in the context of sea parks capturing and training wildlife for our entertainment, and the picture painted is shocking. [First Showing]
