Meryl Streep, Seth Rogen's 'XMas,' 'Spectre' top Sony Pictures CinemaCon sneak

24 April 2015 1:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months .   December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters.  And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you.  Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

Watch: Trailer for the Documentary 'The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happenedc'

21 April 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A favorite subject amongst film nerds is the movies that could have been made but never did. We have had Lost of La Mancha chronicling Terry Gilliam's attempt to make Don Quixote. Just last year, we had Jodorowsky's Dune, about the failed making of Dune by Alejandro Jodorowsky. The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happenedc takes a look at the could-have-been Superman movie from Tim Burton and starring Nicolas Cage, and there's a new trailer for the latter that you can watch below. I don't mind a little bit of "what ifc" dreaming. I do it all the time. What if this filmmaker had made this movie instead of the one that did sort of thing. The thing I do have an issue is when everybody just automatically assumes the movie that could have been made would have been amazing. Quite frankly, everyone talking about Jodorowsky's vision of »

Watch: New Trailer For 'The Death Of 'Superman Lives: What Happened?' Explores The Fate Of Tim Burton's Superhero Film

21 April 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s no secret that Nicolas Cage is a big Superman fan —he named one of his sons Kal-El, Clark Kent's Kryptonian name.  Way back in 1998, Cage was all set to star in a Superman re-launch moive directed by none other than Tim Burton. Not only that, but “Superman Lives” was to be an adaptation of the early '90s comic book arc “The Death of Superman.” Jon Schnepp’s new documentary “The Death of ‘Superman Lives’: What Happened?” explores this film that never was, and there’s a brand new trailer below. In the doc, Schnepp interviews Burton, costume designer Colleen Atwood, Kevin Smith (who wrote the first draft of the script), production designer Rick Heinrichs, Wesley Strick (who wrote later drafts), and many others involved in pre-production on the failed flick. Cage apparently only appears in the documentary in archival footage. According to the film's producer Jon Peters, »

'Death of Superman Lives' Trailer: Tim Burton Reveals What Happened

20 April 2015 4:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back at Comic Con last summer, a new trailer for director Jon Schnepp's documentary The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? debuted, but we haven't heard anything about this exploration of Tim Burton's scrapped Superman Lives movie since then. Today, Schnepp released the final trailer on his YouTube page, which also reveals that the documentary will be released in limited theaters on May 1, before being released internationally on streaming platforms, VOD, Blu-ray and DVD on June 9. The trailer features plenty of new footage, with Tim Burton himself discussing the "painful memories" about the project.

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? delves into one of Hollywood's most enthralling 'what could have been' stories. In 1996, Warner Brothers engaged Kevin Smith to write the screenplay (Superman Lives). Director Tim Burton assembled an elite group of artists to work on Superman Lives, including Nicolas Cage as Superman. Warner Brothers scrapped the »

The Death Of Superman Lives Trailer Examines Tim Burton’s Abandoned Superman Film

20 April 2015 3:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The greatest movies never made is up for debate. Depending on your cinematic oeuvre, you might be more inclined to champion Vincent Ward’s ‘wooden planet’ concept for Alien 3. Or Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman. For some fans, there’s only one unmade movie to contest. A movie that over the years has accrued such mystery and intrigue that the story of its unmaking has now been turned into a documentary: The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?

In case the spoiler-ridden title didn’t clue you in, the Jon Schnepp-directed piece revolves around Tim Burton’s Superman Lives reboot that never saw the light of day. Burton cast Nicolas Cage as the former resident of Krypton and completely rewrote the lore of the iconic character. The somewhat iconoclastic approach to Superman was considered a major departure from Burton’s earlier work on WB’s Batman movies, and »

New Death Of “Superman Lives” Trailer Considers Tim Burton’s Scrapped Superman Movie

20 April 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

The “What If’s” of Hollywood are endlessly fascinating to consider, especially when they concern massive, radical projects that never made it to production. The very definition of such a film was Superman Lives, a proposed Superman reboot to be directed by Tim Burton with Nicolas Cage in the starring role. The film was to be a fairly different take on the Superman from the comics, and was all the more interesting given that it was coming from the same filmmaker who ushered Batman into the modern era just a few years prior. If you never tire of hearing about this scrapped project, then the independent documentary The Death of "Superman Lives": What Happened? is of interest to you. Today, a new trailer for the film was unveiled, teasing interviews with the various Superman Lives screenwriters (including Kevin Smith and Dan Gilroy), costume designer Colleen Atwood, and even Burton himself. »

Promo For The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?

20 April 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Tim Burton’s difficult attempt to make his version of a Superman movie is one of the most fascinating near-misses in cinema history. A lot has been said about it, but no-one has ever truly managed to round up all the key players to really tell the story of what happened to Superman Lives. Now filmmaker cappears to have done that with The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?, which has a trailer out in the world. Funded by Kickstarter, the documentary features Schnepp talking to the likes of Burton, producer Jon Peters, writers Dan Gilroy, Wesley Strick and Kevin Smith and others who would have contributed to bringing Burton’s vision to life, including regular collaborators in costume designer Colleen Atwood and production designer Rick Heinrichs. All talk wistfully of what could have been, even if the idea of Nicolas Cage playing the Man of Steel seems like a strange one now. »

Shailene Woodley Rocks Long Extensions On The Set Of "Snowden" Biopic -- Like The Look?

17 April 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Long hair, don't care!  Shailene Woodley was spotted on the set of the "Snowden" biopic in Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday ... though we barely recognized her with all that hair. The actress didn't look like herself, sporting long brown hair extensions for her role as Edward Snowden's girlfriend, Lindsay Mills.  The young star was dressed down for the scene, rocking long denim shorts, a black T-shirt, minimal makeup and no shoes.  The Oliver Stone directed biopic -- which will follow the life of Snowden, a former CIA employee who leaked thousands of classified information to the press -- boasts a pretty impressive cast, too.  Woodley stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Snowden), Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Zachary Quinto and Joely Richardson in the biographic thriller.  While we think Woodley can rock any look, we've gotten used to her with slightly shorter tresses. What do you think about the 23-year-old's movie makeunder? Tell »
