Cinematic ‘Gotham’ Trailer: There’s a War Coming

26 July 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Though anticipation for Gotham is high, there are challenges facing it as it tries to establish its own separate corner in the burgeoning DC television universe.

Blessed with the enviable Batman rogues gallery, there is much potential, but without the use of Batman, Gotham will have to establish a bond with the audience through the eyes of a hero (Jim Gordon) who has always been more of an ancillary character, even as played by Gary Oldman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. A trilogy that presents another challenge.

Audiences have been spoiled rotten by Nolan’s vision of Gotham City, and when the Gotham series starts up, some may judge it harshly against the look of the films. Really, it’s an unfair comparison because one simply can’t match the visual “wow” factor of Wally Pfister’s cinematography on the small screen.

But while ...

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a Tearjerker?: A Movie Review

24 July 2014 8:56 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Matt Reeves. Writers: Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Pierre Boulle. Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell and Kodi Smit-McPhee. It has been three years since a Planet of the Apes film has been released (2011) and fourty-five years since the first Planet of the Apes film launched (1968). This time, Cloverfield director Matt Reeves helms the chaos between humans and apes. And, events in Reeves' interpretation are overly sombre. As well, the material is approached with a very serious viewpoint. Tears and frowns are the order of the day. Still, the film's climax offers a few interesting conflicts and most of the characters are well drawn, even with the use of computer enhanced imagery. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a light recommend, for those with a penchant for science fiction, action thrillers. The story takes place ten years after the previous film. »

'Community' celebrates 6 seasons and a Comic-Con panel: Live-Blog

24 July 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a busy day already in Comic-Con's Ballroom 20. We welcomed Jack Bauer back for "24." We tolerated 45 minutes of "Under the Dome" discussion. We watched "Scorpion," a.k.a. "Katherine McPhee: Nerd Wrangler," which was surprisingly well-received by the crowd. Now, after some quality time with Adelaide Kane and "Reign," it's time for the panel most of the crowd has been waiting to see... "Community" is back... 2:10 p.m. Our panel today will be creator Dan Harmon and Ep Chris McKenna, along with Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and Dino Stamatopoulos. And, once again, there may be guest appearances. Of course, I predicted guest appearances for "24," but they let us down. 2:17 p.m. We begin with a sizzle reel from the first five "Community" seasons. Season 4 is acknowledged only with a clip of the characters holding their breath to avoid a plume of noxious gas. After the fifth season. »

The Batman movie you'll never see: Darren Aronofsky's Year One

23 July 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first few pages of Frank Miller's script for the shelved Batman: Year One have a disturbed Bruce Wayne waking up from chronic nightmares, some nameless prostitutes being slapped around by their pimp, and Jim Gordon putting a gun in his mouth.

You can see why Warner Bros didn't ultimately go for the project, which was to be helmed by Darren Aronofsky and would have rewritten the Bat mythology even more radically than Miller already had in his comic book arc of the same name.

"Our take was to infuse the Batman franchise with a dose of reality," Aronofsky has said, citing The French Connection and Taxi Driver among his influences. "We tried to ask that eternal question, 'What does it take for a real man to put on tights and fight crime?'" It's an approach not far from the one ultimately taken by Christopher Nolan in Batman Begins, »

Many happy returns to Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrates his 25th birthday today (July 23)! He may have made a name for himself as heroic wizard Harry Potter, but in the years since Deathly Hallows - Part 2, he's excelled in small indies and displayed something of a flare for comedy.

Best of Late Night TV: John Stamos' New 'Manny' Service, Dwayne Johnson's Thigh Workout, Ricky Gervais' Marriage Apathy (Video)

23 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

John Stamos was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to plug his movie "My Man Is a Loser." Obviously, Uncle Jesse is not a loser, but he plays a playboy in the movie. He told Jimmy Kimmel he believes in the institution of marriage (he was married once, to Rebecca Romijn), despite getting caught up in the idea of the whole bachelor life "so guys like you can live vicariously through me." John said he'd switch lives with Jimmy in a heartbeat, to have a beautiful wife and baby. "She'll go to you," Jimmy deadpanned of his wife, Molly. Watch the video for John's weird attempt at a compliment to "fertilize" Jimmy's wife. »

Movie Review – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

22 July 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014.

Directed by Matt Reeves.

StarringAndy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Synopsis:

Set ten years after the outbreak of a deadly virus, we find ape leader Caesar and his group living peacefully outside San Francisco. A chance meeting with a group of human survivors leads to the two sides battling for survival.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a surprise hit in 2011 and brought a breath of fresh air to a franchise that had stalled with numerous sequels and Tim Burton’s unfortunate remake. In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes we are in a post “Simian-flu” world and the tone of the film is completely different to its predecessor. Caesar (expertly played by motion capture God Serkis), is the leader of a group of apes and is »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »
