Panel time! We've watched the "Gotham" and "Flash" pilots and seen hints from "Constantine" and "Arrow," including the reveal that Ra's al Ghul will be the Big Bad on Season 3. Geoff Johns is moderating and... Let's go! 10:05 p.m. The size of this panel is utterly insane. It's basically the full casts of All Four Shows. In rows. On the Hall H stage. 10:07 p.m. Angelica Celaya is the biggest panel surprise. She's the newest "Constantine" star and she started work yesterday. 10:08 p.m. "It's kinda crazy to see the universe represented like this," Johns says. 10:08 p.m. Where did "Gotham" come from and why start with the death of the Waynes, Johns asks. "Origin stories are my favorite part of the mythologies of the DC Universe," Bruno Heller says. He found it natural to start with the beginning of the process and "What is more »

It’s been nearly six months since Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose, and yet his presence is still heavily felt throughout Hollywood. In addition to a lengthy and acclaimed filmography, the Academy Award winner kept up a busy work schedule until the time of his death. He had three films slated for 2014 release: John Slattery‘s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, and A Most Wanted Man. With the latter hitting theaters today, we thought we’d give you a look every Psh film currently available for your streaming pleasure. Whether as cynical music writer Lester Bangs in Almost Famous or hopelessly lonely boom mic operator Scott J. in Boogie Nights, Hoffman managed to steal the scene in each one of his films. If you have a Netflix account, log in and get caught up on some of the greatest performances in the last 20 years. »

Opening in limited release this weekend is Woody Allen’s new film Magic in the Moonlight. The romantic comedy is set in the south of France in the 1920s and stars Colin Firth as an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle, as a young woman (Emma Stone) claims to be able to communicate with spirits. As he spends more time with the girl, however, he starts to wonder if she may not be a fraud after all. The film also stars Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, and Jacki Weaver. For more on the film watch the trailer. A few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with Colin Firth. He talked about making Magic in the Moonlight, working with Woody Allen, filming in France, shooting at the magic hour, working with Matthew Vaughn on Kingsman: The Secret Service and one of the »

Dom Hemingway I quite enjoyed Dom Hemingway if only for Jude Law's brash performance, but it seems others weren't as taken with it as I was. I will say this, you can do a lot worse when it comes to rentals or even purchases this week so give this one a shot, I think you'll like it.
Witness for the Prosecution One film I feel any cinema fan will certainly enjoy is Witness for the Prosecution and my dumb ass was too slow on the uptake when Kino sent out notice they were releasing a new Blu-ray edition of the film so I missed out on a review copy. Directed by Billy Wilder this is a film that will one day be in my Best Movies section, check it out.
Blue Ruin Solid movie, though I can't help but feel people got a little too carried away in their praise. »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Jude Law dons impressive chops and gold teeth to play a sleazy
safecracker fresh out of jail. Dom took the fall without ratting out his boss (Demián Bichir), and now it's time to pay the piper. Richard E. Grant co-stars as his best friend, whom Dom enlists on his quest to get paid. Emilia Clarke (the mother of dragons!) plays Dom's estranged daughter, Evelyn.
Why We're In: We love darkly funny crime thrillers, and it's cool to see Jude Law back in action.

There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »

The Hungarian film biz is on a roll, and keen to maintain its momentum. Variety spoke to Agnes Havas, head of the Hungarian National Film Fund, who is attending the Karlovy Vary Intl. Film Festival this week, about the three Hungarian features playing in Karlovy Vary, the imminent rise of the production incentive to 25%, and the return of the national movie kudofest, the Hungarian Film Week.
The renaissance of Hungary’s film biz continues a year on from the Crystal Globe victory at Karlovy Vary for Janos Szasz’s “The Notebook,” the first film to receive coin from Hungary’s new movie support org, the Hungarian National Film Fund, which launched in late 2011. The film went on to be selected as Hungary’s Oscar entry and reached the Academy’s short-list of nine films. It was acquired in North America by Sony Pictures Classics. At Cannes this year, another Hungarian film, »

It's been a while since Rachel McAdams graced the cover of a major magazine (nearly two years, in fact) but when it came time for her close-up, she was ready. Wearing minimal makeup and flashing an easy-going grin the actress looks completely comfortable—not to mention stunning—on the August 2014 cover of Allure. As for her ever-changing hair color, the A Most Wanted Man actress is still sporting the slightly auburn-brunette shade that she went back to over a year ago. The star has many films in the works including an untitled Cameron Crowe project with Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone as well as a reported return in the Sherlock Holmes franchise with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Yet it's her »
Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination. Spielberg has shown an amazing range of vision and scope when tackling various movie genres that tap in the collective consciousness of moviegoers. Science fiction, social issue dramas, action and adventure, period pieces, family-oriented fantasies, comedies, war movies–you name it and Spielberg has done it on the big screen in his illustrious film career in directing, producing, writing and promoting.
Although Spielberg has done his share of adult-oriented films that cater to the sophisticated masses he is primarily known for his whimsical kid-friendly fare or at least releases that feature children in some of his escapist gems that may not necessarily be considered kiddie-coated.

On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.
First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning, »

18 year-old Californian actor Tony Revolori was plucked from relative obscurity to play faithful concierge Zero Mustafa in Wes Anderson’s glorious European fantasy caper The Grand Budapest Hotel. Not only does the young performer hold his own against a ridiculously starry ensemble cast, but he’s also the beating heart of the film, forming a wonderfully touching and hilarious double act with co-star, Ralph Fiennes.
We recently had the opportunity to speak with Revolori about his incredible cinematic rites of passage, and the interesting challenges the film threw up (some of which were a little closer to home.)
HeyUGuys: Hi Tony. The film features an incredible line-up of seasoned, award-winning actors. Was it initially pretty daunting to act against the likes of Ralph Fiennes, Willem Dafoe and Tilda Swinton?
Tony Revolori: Definitely. I think I was the only actor [on set] who hadn’t won or been nominated for an Oscar »
