Next year, DC’s Trinity will come together – for better or worse – in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and in anticipation of March’s grand event, Warner Bros. is hosting a big presence for the film at the ongoing New York Comic-Con. To commemorate the occasion, the studio is placing a laser focus on the costume design behind Batman, Superman and Diana Prince herself, Wonder Woman.
As detailed in the video above, a tremendous amount of care and detail went into the creation of each superhero guise, built to not only reflect the character, but also the era that they are in. Indeed, today’s video arrives on the heels of a yet-to-be-confirmed report relating to Wonder Woman’s outfits, which states that Gal Gadot’s Amazonian Warrior will don no less than three armors across as many timelines during her appearance in the DC Expanded Universe. »

A month after it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, Starz has purchased U.S. rights to Jason Bateman’s dark comedy “The Family Fang” and is planning to release the film theatrically in 2016, Variety has learned.
As part of the deal, Starz Digital will handle the dramedy’s digital, on-demand, and theatrical rollout. Starz’s Anchor Bay division will oversee the home video roll out following its theatrical run, and the film’s television premiere will take place on the Starz premium cable network.
“The Family Fang” is adapted from Kevin Wilson’s 2011 comic novel of the same name and stars Bateman and Nicole Kidman as siblings who reunite with their performance artist parents (Christopher Walken, Maryann Plunkett).

Bryan Cranston leads the cast in this exceptional biopic of blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, a favourite on the festival circuit which finally makes it to Europe and this year’s BFI London Film Festival.
The story revolves around the life of the Academy-Award winning writer who penned the likes of Spartacus, Roman Holiday and The Brave One, winning Oscars for the latter two. Trumbo was famously blacklisted in the 1940s for being a communist and this film covers the period of time from shortly before said blacklisting in 1947, the 11-month prison sentence that he served for contempt shortly afterwards, and how his home life and indeed career progressed following his release.
Starring alongside the magnificent Cranston is Helen Mirren, in yet another powerhouse »

Sneak Peek the new "Fortune" magazine profile on 'Alexander Joseph Luthor Jr.', aka 'Lex Luthor', the arch enemy of 'Superman' in director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", opening March 2016:
"...'Lex' is a 31-year-old wunderkind who transformed an aging petrochemical and heavy machinery dinosaur into a tech darling of the 'Fortune 500' in what some call a superhuman feat.
"This jeans-wearing genius is equally at ease rappelling the climbing wall in his employee 'inspiration station' and coding in 'the crucible', the cutting-edge 'R & D' lab where the baby-faced billionaire verbally extemporizes computer code like Miles Davis improvising a trumpet solo.
"Taking the reins of the family business after the untimely death of his indomitable father, the prodigal son boldly changed the direction of the firm from oil and heavy machinery to tech...
"...with 'LexCorp' quickly becoming the second largest emerging technology corporation in »

In a latest trailer for “Trumbo,” new footage shows screenwriter Dalton Trumbo‘s fight to make movies amidst the backdrop of the Red Scare in 1940s Hollywood. The trailer serves up more emotion than the first as it depicts Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) behind bars, as well as shows a new scene in which Trumbo is questioned by Congressional legislators about his suspected membership in the Community party. “Am I accused of a crime?” he asks, to which the courtroom erupts in outrage.

In 1940s Hollywood, few screenwriters could hold a candle to the blistering success and aura of one Dalton Trumbo, who rose to the top of the pack with his brilliant work, only for it all to come crushing down when a wave of social paranoia washed over the United States of A. Left to fight against the Powers That Be for recognition as a genuine writer and free American citizen, the tragic tale is simply ripe for tapping, and it’s small wonder why the hero-to-zero arc hasn’t flirted with the silver screen in the past.
Low and behold, director Jay Roach is about to rectify that later this year with Trumbo, a dramatic biopic of the shunned screenwriter that places Breaking Bad alum Bryan Cranston behind the typewriter. Dealing with themes of fear-mongering and media scapegoats, it’s hardly surprising that Roach’s drama has emerged as one »

Trumbo International Movie Trailer. Jay Roach‘s Trumbo (2015) movie trailer stars Bryan Cranston, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, and Louis C.K. Trumbo‘s plot synopsis: “The successful career of Hollywood screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo, comes to an end when he is blacklisted in the 1940s for being a Communist.” This looks great. This trailer is a somewhat somber […] »

In his most substantial post-Breaking Bad role thus far, Bryan Cranston is going back in time. The actor takes the lead in Trumbo, a Jay Roach-helmed biopic centered on the life of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. The writer’s credits for Roman Holiday, Spartacus, Papillon, and A Guy Named Joe are only a very small part of the story. During the anti-Communist fervor of the ’50s, the suspected Red was driven from Hollywood — by which point his career and personal life was left in tatters. The amazing part? Trumbo managed to continue writing thereafter, eventually receiving a public revival of sorts through the support of John F. Kennedy, Otto Preminger, and Kirk Douglas.
Ahead of a release next month, we now have a new trailer and clip for the film. While we didn’t get a chance to check it out at Tiff, Variety said, “If history is written by the victors, »

Biopic? Check. Golden Age of Hollywood? Check. Stacked ensemble cast? Check. Trumbo has everything Hollywood and Academy Awards voters love as Bryan Cranston brings the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo to the big screen.
Cranston stars as the highly successful and in-demand screenwriter Dalton Trumbo who saw his career options plummet after he is blacklisted in the 1940s for being a Communist. The man behind Spartacus and Roman Holiday was persona non grata along with several of his writer pals as the great Red Scare made waves throughout the United States government and trickled down through Hollywood studios and heavyweights.
What’s a movie about Hollywood in the 1940s without a few famous players of the time? Some of the biggest names of the era appear as characters in the film including former actress and gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (played by Helen Mirren) who infamously spared with Trumbo in her anti-Communist crusade. »

Hotly tipped for an Oscar at the next ceremony, Bryan Cranston looks to have seized the role of Dalton Trumbo in Jay Roach's Hollywood communist witch-hunt drama with considerabe gusto. Following the recent poster, here's a new trailer to give you a sense of what's to come. Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, John Goodman and Louis C.K. co-star.There’s a rich – and no doubt, deliberate – irony that Hollywood's database of exciting unmade scripts is called the Black List. Back in the late ‘40s, the blacklist was exactly where a screenwriter didn’t want to be. One, Spartacus and Roman Holiday writer Trumbo (Cranston), found himself cast into movie prison when he fell foul of the communist witch hunts of the time.Roach's film will show how his career was nearly snuffed out by those spurious charges and innuendo. It’s set against a rich Hollywood backdrop haunted »
"Am I accused of a crime?" Entertainment One in the UK has debuted a brand new international trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, played by Bryan Cranston. In the 1940s, Trumbo and many of his friends are accused of being communists, and this film tells the story of how they defeated congress and the pure evil House UnAmerican Activities Committee. I recently had the chance to see Trumbo and it's an excellent film, playing strong on comedy with outstanding performances. The cast includes Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning and many others. This trailer is much more serious than expected, but I still highly recommend watching. Enjoy! Here's the new international trailer for Jay Roach's Trumbo, from Entertainment One's YouTube: Trumbo is directed by Jay Roach and written by television writer John McNamara. The film tells »

On the one hand Jay Roach's "Trumbo" looks to be an Oscar bait movie in every way - an exploration of the communist witch-hunt that took place during the late 1940s when screenwriters saw their careers and lives ruined by spurious charges and innuendo.
On the other there's some strong comedic talent packing the supporting cast and a slight over the top sense to everything here which means the tone sometimes seems a little off. Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, John Goodman, Louis C.K., Alan Tudyk and Michael Stuhlbarg star in the film which opens in the U.S. on November 6th.

Check it out the trailer below:
The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. Trumbo tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne to Kirk Douglas and Otto Preminger.
Trumbo is set for release in the States on November 6th and in the UK on January 22nd, with a cast that also includes Helen Mirren, Diane Lane, John Goodman, Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, Louis C.K. and Alan Tudyk.
